Gal Pal Lunch
Herb Box is one of my favorite places for a leisurely "gal pal" lunch...But I've noticed an increasing number of men each time I've been there so I guess healthy, lighter eating is really catching on.

I was with a couple of friends
I was with a couple of friends and two of us ordered the shrimp-avocado salad. I was expecting fresh shrimp but they were lightly breaded. The salad was of arugula with two slices of bread, one smeared with avocado and the other had honey on it. It was a strange combination of flavors but it worked. There cocktail list looks so good but I don't drink if I'm driving so I ordered a virgin blackberry mojito that was fantastic and they charged a reasonable price for it. We were on the patio in 100+ degrees but the misters kept us cool

Very good fresh food.
We really like the food is fresh and they try to do local as much as possible. There is a lot of flavor to the food, they use fresh herbs and know what they are doing with them.

Food great, music not...
The food is wonderful and full of unusual preparations, and choices. The night we were there the theme was deep fried items, several on the menu, good and done to down home Southern joy, just don't try all of them, you will be sorry.
The serving staff was flawless and always helpful. Really like their style.
The music that night was clearly chosen for the mellow, back ground quality, which could have worked, but the musicians chose to amplify there offerings, so you were not able to talk or even think with you fellow dinners. We came to enjoy the food, not be blasted into silence by a mediocre music experience. Better luck next time Herb Box...

The food is the best that
The food is the best that I have found so far. The spicy and cool shrimp and avocado salad was so tasty that we almost called for second. My baby back ribs have great bbq sauce and the maccaroni and cheese side dish is just awesome. The salmon browned with brown sugar is excellent and tasty. The drinks are good. The service is outstanding and timing is just impeccable. A wonderful night out for us.

Father's Day brunch
Tried this restaurant for the first time on very busy Father's Day but we were seated and served right away. Service was quick and friendly. The wild mushroom omelette was good. The band was a little loud at times. Will definitely plan on going back, maybe when the weather is cooler in order to enjoy the patio seating.

Obviously catering to a young crowd but too noisy for us old folks. Moved outdoors to carry on a conversation. (Sunday afternoon.)

Lunch with a friend was delicious and service was good. Will return in the future.

First time dining at this
First time dining at this location. Our waitress was outstanding--spent 15 mins going over menu and her likes and dislikes. Dined with two ladies who thoroughly enjoyed their plates--vegan and short ribs. I had the kobe burger. My wife and I brought home half for supper.
Would definitely dine here again.

Although we always enjoy going to the Herb Box, we especially love their Passport Series on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. This is a fun way for us to enjoy new and exciting dishes in honor of countries around the world. The food is excellent, the portions are perfect, and the service is always exceptional. The people are wonderful.

We visited the restaurant
We visited the restaurant on a Saturday night and really enjoyed ourselves. Had a fabulous server who was outgoing and fun. We tried several appetizers, including the crabmeat dip, the falafel with tahini and the bruchetta...all were tasty, although the falafel was a bit mild. For our entrees we tried and all shared the angus burger, the enchiladas and the pear and gorgonzola flatbread. Again all were delicious. Overall a very enjoyable evening!

We enjoyed our lunch at the Herb Box. The new menu gives a variety of healthy choices. The waiters were accommodating for special requests. For our birthdays, they gave us a glass of Prosecco. We weren't rushed and were able to have a nice visit.
There were people with babies there as well as people doing business.
They are welcoming for any group.
The tables are far enough apart for privacy, if needed and the ambiance is lovely.

Excellent Food Experience
We loved the quality of the food experience. Everything from the appetizers to the squash enchiladas were excellent. I really don't think you can go wrong here. The service was excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable and informative about ever dish and was spot on. We will go back the next time we are in the area.

This was my second visit.
This was my second visit. Both meals were very good, dinner the first time, lunch this time. The menu is a bit limited, but overall, enough to fill one up

The Herb Box Rox!!!
A very nice lunch with friends introduced me to this wonderful eatery in Old Town Scottsdale. Plenty of choices for healthy eaters and vegetarians, as well as meat lovers. Fresh ingredients and interesting flavor combinations result in yummy variations on typical dishes. Try the tacos, avocado shrimp salad, and falafel bites. Wonderful service. Anxious to go for dinner!

We had a great birthday celebration. Food was delicious, service was excellent.
Our waiter, Andy, kept us entertained with his hilarious comments on the menu, but he was also very prompt and efficient with his service and delivery!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there for lunch. The waiter was attentive. They had a variety of ice tea, I had the green tea which was great. The sweet potato chips were very good. I will definitely visit there again.

We found this place by accident because it could seat our party on a weekend night at a busy time. Somehow we got the last table available. Awesome cocktail menu - great appetizers - creative and well-seasoned entrees. I will go back to this place to try their other options. It was fun, with a great atmosphere, friendly staff, and wow the food was quite delicious.

Fantastic brunch by the river
The Herb Box was the perfect spot to enjoy brunch with our out-of-town guests. The atmoshphere was very comfortable, welcoming, and relaxing...contemporary urban rustic design. The smoked salmon and cinnamon pancakes were absoluttely amazing. They even have options to accommodate for those with gluten allergies. Afterward, it was nice to grab a coffee to go and walk the river.

Third time here and the best
Third time here and the best so far. All varieties of Tacos will suitably impress.
Price is right too. $77 for two adult couples b

This place is good stuff. The décor is classy and it is in old town Scottsdale which is a great place to hang out afterwards (as told by a friend who lives in Scottsdale). I thought the service was fine and we didn't have any complaints. Our table shared the pear and gorgonzola flatbread, the thai bbq baby back ribs, the gouda mac and cheese, the kobe burger and the crisp chicken paillard. All were very tasty, but the paillard was my favorite hands down. I finished up that goat cheese cream corn like my life depended on it. The tres leches cake was tastier to me than the sweet and salty, which is surprising to me. There were a few items on the sweet and salty plate that were hard to eat. I would come back if we venture back to Scottsdale!

I chose to take my friends to the Herb Box t o celebrate a friend's birthday. This was their first visit. They all enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Our waiter, Chris was very personable and met our needs. The restaurant had our table already set up and we were visited by the manager to see how our meal was.
I always enjoy taking new people to the Herb Box because it always is a hit.

The food was delicious. We ate outside, with water flowing next door. It was a delightful evening. No complaints!

Keep coming back
We have dined several times here. We enjoy it each time. The seasonal menu didn't blow us away as much as some of the more classic items in the past have. But the service was outstanding. We will go back again!

Dinner With Friends
Very good food, attentive service and a quiet outdoor setting. What's not to like?

OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY!
The Herb Box is a "must" for anyone who appreciates great food, ambiance, service, and a wonderful location in Scottsdale.

It would be hard to make a negative comment..... On a beautiful day when you can sit outside and enjoy great food !

Thanks to Yelp
Thanks to Yelp we found this awesome place in Old Town Scottsdale. And thanks to Open Table, making a reservation was a snap!!! We loved everything.... My Lentil 'meatballs' were outstanding. We can't wait to return.

We have been dining at this restaurant almost every sunday for lunch for over a year. Our favorite and all of our friends favorite item was the blackened chicken caesar salad. This past sunday we learned they took it off the menu and replaced it with a new salad. We tried it….not even close compared to the caesar. We also really enjoyed the dressing and asked for the recipe but were told Chef Becky doesn't share.

This restaurant is a gem of a find! The food was yummy, interesting, and fun. I found the entire menu innovative and the flavors accessible while not being to coy. The plating were not these culinary masterpieces that one is afraid to touch. That is exactly why this restaurant is so great, it spans the spectrum of diners. It is just a great end-up for all occasions were everyone will enjoy their experience.
