We had a wonderful dining experience. It started with our outgoing waiter Will who made sure we received our cocktail, appetizer, and main course in a timely manner. Then the cocktails & food arrived and we were amazed by the flavors. We started with cocktails...and I orders The Empress a nice, light, flavorful Empress Gin cocktail serviced in a beautiful etched glass. Apparently they were very popular that night. The seafood bruschetta arrived next, and the sauce was so good we asked Will if we could get bread to soak up the remaining sauce! For our main course we each had a special - my husband had a very tender Veal Tomahawk which he loved and I had the Cioppino over angel hair pasta. Needless to say we didn’t leave much of anything on our plates.More

We were on a family vacation with our adult children and their spouses, a party of six. We chose this restaurant because of its reputation. Sadly it was a disappointment. When you enter the place looks great, Well decorated and a very professional staff greeted...us quickly. Once seated our server came quickly but had to ask for cocktails which took awhile to arrive. My wife and I ordered one of the specials, sea bass. Mine was okay but not how it was described by our server. My wife's on the other hand was cold. Midway through the meal we noticed other tables had bred. We were never offed this and so I asked on of the water servers to please provide some which he did. When you go to a high end restaurant like this you don't expect this type of treatment so in the future we will be making other dinning decisions.More

What a disappointment. First the good: the service, the rucola salad, the tiramisu (really good). The bad: our entrees. The seafood with linguini was almost inedible. The linguini was gummy and the seafood overcooked. The scallops still had the foot attached! The veal scallopini was...average at best, and the string beans were like mush - way overcooked. Later, I realized they completely left out the rice pilaf. Don’t understand all the great reviewsMore

Expensive, know that going in, but an amazing, romantic cap stone to a great trip! Worthy of an anniversary or honeymoon type dinner, with great personalized caring service. Would definitely recommend it.

If you’re planning a trip to Sedona and you’re a fan of Italian cuisine…Dahl & DiLuca is an ABSOLUTE MUST! It’s pricey but the food & experience are worth every dollar...especially if you get Beto as your server! I’ve eaten at a lot of famous...fine dining restaurants in this country and the service we received by Beto is by far second to none! From the appetizers to the desserts the quality of the ingredients and the care that went into preparation of each dish was evident. Reservations are required and hard to get for a reason…so make them well in advance. Be sure to request dining room or patio seating for the full experience…you don’t want to sit in the lobby/bar…especially if you’re a couple looking for an intimate dinner. Fellow foodies…this is a dining experience you don’t want to miss!More

My wife and I dined at Dahl & DiLuca while visiting Sedona. The service was professional. I really appreciate the restaurant dress code. I get tired of spending top dollar to be seated in a restaurant that allows ball caps, shorts, flip flops and tee...shirts. That is great for the beach but not for a high-end dining experience. We stared with the Calamari. It was served with a lemon-caper aioli and marinara sauce. Both of these were excellent. We moved on to a Caesar salad. I am normally not a huge fan of capers but the chef really makes it work. The Caesar featured a lemon caper Caesar dressing My wife had the Romeo e Juliet which is a dish with veal scaloppini and eggplant. The veal was cooked perfectly, and the sauce was flawless. I had the vitello piccata. It was served with a lemon caper chardonnay sauce. This sauce was excellent. Sometimes these can taste too “boozy” but there was a delicate balance between the wine and the lemon sauce. I could cut the veal with my fork. For dessert we had the lemon chiffon gelato and the tiramisu. The gelato was unique with great flavor. The tiramisu was one of the best I have had as well. Tiramisu can be tricky. If it sits too long it gets soggy or overpowered with liquor or coffee. This one was fresh and light with the right balance of flavor. I felt the wine list had a good selection featuring nice Italian and California wines. The pricing was fair. This is a can’t miss in Sedona.More

The only complaint I have about this restaurant is how difficult it is to get a reservation (you're not going to be seated without one). Everything else is fantastic; food, atmosphere, service, drinks...EVERYTHING! We did take some suggestions from our water, Will, and every suggestion...was a home run. Highly recommend this restaurant!More

We enjoyed the food (most notably the filet and the lavender panna cotta) at this gorgeous restaurant, but D., our server, seemed bent on "educating" us about food and etiquette--even placing my napkin in my lap. No, thank you! I didn't care for this affectation...from a server. He was patronizing; my husband and I have dined at 5-star restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip, so this wasn't our first rodeo. The food was delicious and service was not rushed, but the attitude of the waiter keeps me from giving a 5-star rating. We probably will return to visit Mariposa next time and avoid Dahl.More

Dahl & Di Luca offers great food, service and incredible ambiance in a beautiful and a just wonderful location in Sedona. We begin dinner with a couple of glasses of white Moscato served by a friendly and helpful waiter. Taking his suggestion's we ordered the...Classico Bolognese and Lisa's Lucious Lasagna. They arrived in due time, outstandingly presented on the plate's They tasted even better than they looked. After enjoying our main course we split a piece of Lemon Chese Cake. WOW!!! this was exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, and will not hesitate dining there again on a future Sedona visit.More
