While the food and service were quite good, the location of the restaurant and the attending view are what make this a very special experience. Try to beat the sunset and bathe in the gorgeous scenery as you enjoy a fine meal.

Beautiful Scenic Restaurant

vip
Dined on April 19, 2016

The view can not be beat! The food was very good. The service could use some improvement overall. The bartender at the bar seemed overwhelmed and we waited awhile to place a drink order and we were the only ones at the bar! They definitely could use more help. The scenery made up for the lack of service.

Dined on April 17, 2016

Expected 180° view as advertised where the brunch was served. Disappointed with maybe a 90 degree view from where we were seated. Also the sun filtering shades were down the whole time we were at brunch blocking the view. We booked mostly for the view which was not as expected. However the food, the servers, and other staff at the resort were very accommodating and excellent .

We had a fantastic meal outside on the terrace. A little chilly so the staff got the heat lamps going for us, and everything we ordered was delicious. The burrata started was a great plate to share. Loved the roasted carrots. Garlic panisse was uniques and well executed. Rachael our server gave us just the right amount of attentive service!

Our First Time

vip
Dined on March 15, 2016

The views here really are exquisite. Go before the sun sets. The service was very good. We had a very enthusiastic waitress who had a lot to tell us about her favorites on the menu. We did not have a food that we did not enjoy. Starters included warm beets as well as the outstanding burrata! I had a cup of the delicious lobster bisque that everyone had raved about. It certainly was good, but a bowl would have been a meal in itself. I opted for the cup which was plenty to enjoy. Several of us had the filet, which were all cooked perfectly as ordered. The scallops were very good as were the short ribs. Most of us were full, but one order of the doughnuts made its way to the table and they seemed to disappear quickly! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. It is pricey, so be prepared for that.

Daughter there for her 19th birthday dinner

Dined on February 28, 2016

The location is beautiful and we had dinner looking at the sunset. The food was very good and everybody's favorite was the Lobster bisque. My husband had pasta, good but not extraordinary. My daughter had scallops, my husband and daughter loved it, I did not. I had steak, well prepared. The extraordinaries: Lobster bisque and the smore dessert.

Enchantment is the resort, Che Ah Chi-enchanting

Dined on February 28, 2016

From the moment we arrived and were seated, we knew it was a special evening. The view of the Sedona rocks was fabulous, and the selections of all courses exceeded our expectations. The wine list was extensive and well presented. Service was attentive and on spot for an upscale restaurant, but not at all stuffy. Highlighting the evening was a wonderful guitarist. We will definitely return.

Don't miss the Lobster Bisque!

Dined on February 26, 2016

There are obviously and cooks who know what they are doing in the kitchen. Presentation was superb. The appetizer-pork belly was delicious and a bit for 2 as opposed to "For the Table" as listed on the menu. The Lobster Bisque is among the best we have ever had-don't skip it and get a 'bowl'. The entrees were OK but not much more than that. Service was enthusiastic and pleasant. The wine list is extensive and interactive-on an iPad. (I sent myself a wine label but I received it as a blur, which was disappointing.) A most pleasant if not perfect experience.

Killer view of the famous Sedona red rocks.

Dined on February 22, 2016

Get there well before sundown and sit on the outside deck if the weather is OK. Watch the shadows change on the rock faces as the sun recedes. Order a drink and enjoy.... Superior service inside. We shared the seared pork belly. The mains were great. We were invited to a nearby table for a shared dessert and laughed a lot. Make friends...have fun. Also, bring money.

When you walk into the restaurant you are greeted by a very rude and unfriendly woman who tells you to take a seat. She hovers around the restaurant with a nasty look on her face, like she is doing the diner a favor. Our server was very professional, and the food was good, but most of the staff is very young, unfriendly and clearly inexperienced. Not what you expect at restaurant with these prices.

Wait staff needs some training

Dined on February 2, 2016

Che-Ah-Chi is intended to provide a memorable experience in an exquisite setting. It could have accomplished that had it not been tarnished with missteps by the wait staff. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the dinner offerings and answered our questions very well. Our meals were exactly as she described and were delicious. The downfall was when the entrees were served by other members of the staff. There was a mix-up on the tray as to who was supposed to get which entree, so the person delivering the plates began setting them in the wrong places. When we corrected her, rather than removing the plate and taking them to the right place, she reached across the table, warning me, "Watch out, this is a hot plate!" She was holding it with a napkin to protect her hand and expected me to reach over and take it from her by the napkin, which I did. Then I was supposed to pick up the plate in front of me and pass it over across the table to my friend. Very unprofessional. At the end of dinner, our waitress seemed to disappear. After waiting way too long to get our check so we could leave, we finally asked another server to tell our waitress to bring it. On a brighter end note, the night we were there was snowy and the roads were slick with snow and ice. We had self parked, but the valet was kind enough to tell us to stay put rather than risking a fall on the ice and retrieved our car. Even he had trouble getting it up the hill. We appreciated him looking out for our safety.

For an exceptional dining experience~

Dined on January 24, 2016

This was our 2nd time to The Enchantment Resort and Che-Ah-Chi. It was every bit is good as our 1st time and the new menu was excellent. I highly recommend that you plan to visit / dine at Che-Ah-Chi when in Sedona. It’s a bit pricey, but expected at a fine locale as this. Very attentive and knowledgable servers...The acoustic guitar player was mellow and very talented, added to the experience for sure...Don’t miss this experience and btw, start with a cocktail or glass of wine outside on the patio around the fire at sunset...

Dining at Che-Ah-Chi

Dined on November 20, 2015

Ambiance and all wait staff were superb!!!! The food presentation was exquisite but I expected more relative to the taste experience. My soup of the day - chicken - was flavored too strongly - and if that was salt - it was too much (given my health issues). The "southern style grits" were blended to the consistency of mashed potatoes - and as someone who has eaten grits all my life - I cannot understand how blended grits are described as southern style. I ordered a signature margarita and I was highly disappointed. It tasted like it had no liquor at all and very little of the typical margarita flavor - whereas the prickly pear margarita I had at Happy Hour was outstanding. In summary - ambiance and wait staff were exceptional - but for the reputation and price - I expected more from my food items.

This was the best dining experience we've had in a long time. Our table faced the sunset lit mountain. We watch the mountain go dark as we ate our scrumptious meal!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this restaurant. It's a bit out of the way but then you are driving through gorgeous Sedona AZ mountainside.

Irregular invoicing for meals

Dined on November 7, 2015

We at dinner at Che-ah-Chi six nights during our stay and breakfast six times. EVERYTHING was quite good with the exception of when it came to signing for meals. Most of the time the bill came with the gratuity added into the bill and as we were on an all inclusive it made it acceptable, however it seemed like we had to remind the wait staff every time to put the gratuity on and on a few occasions we waited while they went back and corrected the bill. The one time that we needed to leave right away I just added the gratuity on the bottom (25.00) 157777 and found that it was added to my final bill. Also happened with regards to the added charge 122698 on 11-05. We paid cash for everything we purchase and do not know what the café charge of 316462 is. So in summary the $63.33 are unsubstantiated.

The setting is stunning. The servers were friendly and accommodating. Out of four people dining, only one was satisfied with the Sunday brunch. The table did not look really clean and the floor had food and silverware on it. I expected more from this quality of a resort.

Enchanting

Dined on September 16, 2015

We ate here to celebrate our 2520th wedding anniversary during our stay at the Enchantment Resort. The ambience was perfect for the occasion. Outside on the patio under the starry sky we enjoyed a delicious Charcuterie Board to start followed by lamb for myself and a filet for my wife. The side order of mushrooms was great too. For desert we were given the chocolate torte compliments of the restaurant complete with a Happy Anniversary chocolate tag. The wait staff were attentive but not intrusive and the whole meal was perfect in every way.

Went here recently with my wife. I had the filet mignon and she had the pasta of the day. Both meals were exceptional. Our server was very efficient and polite. The wine list is incredibly extensive with a price point for everyone. The views of the boynton canyon are extraordinary and add to the overall ambiance of a well put together restaurant. I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone looking to go.

My husband and I found dinner at Enchantment Resort's Che-Ah-Chi to be the perfect way to cap off our evening - the outdoor dining was relaxed and peaceful, our server knowledgeable and friendly. Not only was our food delicious, the wine recommended by our server complemented the meal exactly as she'd predicted. A lovely experience from beginning to end.

Best View of Red Rocks and Boynton Canyon

vip
Dined on September 6, 2015

The views from tables inside and outside of Che-Ah-Chi are drop dead gorgeous. We had the "jazz brunch" advertised on Sunday, over a holiday weekend. We were the only guests at 12:30pm, and the live band was no where to be seen. Food was excellent, even if the energy was low! In contrast, we came back for breakfast at 8:30am on our day of departure, and they couldn't seat us (kitchen too backed up). We went over to Mii Amo Cafe (in the spa) after being turned away, and they seemed to be equally frenzied and short staffed over there. Food, again, was excellent. Note to Open Table bookers: Che-Ah-Chi reception did not recognize our OT reservation. Enchantment mgmt probably needs to figure out this piece as well as its staffing for peak dining hours.
