I met friends at The Herb
I met friends at The Herb Box at DC Ranch for dinner. We were seated on the patio (as we had requested on open table). I had the salmon which was excellent. The wine selections were broad and reasonable in price. There was a wide range of fellow diners in age and dress and interest (good people watching, btw).

Un-Boxy Gem in Quaint DC Ranch
My main complaint was that my Open Table reservation was not confirmed back when I checked in, so I received an email alert stating I hadn't shown up and to let them know if this was inaccurate.
Now that I have that off my chest, I attended with my boss for a working lunch. The atmosphere is great, it's nice to have the windows open on a nice day and feel the flow of the restaurant with its eclectic decor. The food was good. I had the special lunch which consisted of a cup of squash soup, spinach salad (avocados, oranges and bacon), and steak & veggie smoked quesadilla. My boss had a big chicken salad that she enjoyed. The service was prompt and not overbearing. I may go back with my husband or for a ladies' lunch.

This is a delightful neighborhood resturant with great outside dining. The menu is varied and quite interesting. The flatbreads are fabulous. Pecan crusted lemon pie is a must!

The Herb Box is our local Fave!
We loved everything we tried for all three courses. The menu of options is delicious, healthy and innovative so it was tough to choose but our server took great care of us and helped us pick the perfect items. We consider the Herb Box DC Ranch our local fave and will be back with friends and family soon!

I have loved the Herb Box for years and think they have outstanding food and wonderful ambiance. They always have the friendliest of servers which I totally appreciate....but twice in the past three months I have hosted dinner parties for 10-12 folks and the service is really slow...really non existant....like you have to hunt down the server for everything...water, extra drinks, wine, appetizers, food, dessert and the bill......it is like you never see the waiter. Twice we have had this experience with two different waiters. They are never rude or even unexperienced.....it is almost like they are expected to do the dishes in the kitchen or something and do not know what it is going on in the front of the house...very strange.

Maybe a little unprepared
I've eaten at the Herb Box twice before, but only for dinner. Decided to go there for their "first ever" Mother's Day brunch. Booked a reservation but waited another 15-20 minutes before we had a table. I'm not sure if they overbooked or what, but the wait, and the subsequent lousy table was a little disappointing. We were seated close to the hostess stand and crammed in with another table. On a more positive note, the food was excellent and so was the service. Our waitress was outstanding! Never an empty cup of coffee or glass of water. Overall, I think with a littling "tweaking" they will do just fine accomodating a special event.

We don't get to the Herb Box as often as we would like, but the food, service and general atmosphere are always solid. Great spot for anything from a date night to a Sunday out with our young kids. Would recommend it to anyone.

Delightful spot in the Market Place
This is a casual eatery with an upscale menu of what I would call California Cuisine. We love it.

Interesting menu, cozy decor
The Herb Box is good for it's unique menu and mix of options for vegetarians and those who need gluten free foods.
Good food and decent wine selection.

Great lunch spot
Great neighborhood dining spot in DC Ranch. Salads are fresh and delicious. The butternut squach enchiladas and frisee/apple slaw are delicious! Will definitely go back and try other dishes.

I was definitely a little skeptical of our reservation after reading some negative reviews and never having dined here. What a pleasant surprise. We were seated immediately. Service by Vicky was impeccable, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Food was excellent. Perfect portions, delicious yet still healthy fare. Would highly recommend and would definitely go back. Spoke with Craig the manager and let him know of our experience after the negative reviews, which could not be further from the truth.

Nice selection of creative entrees
Even though we bought a home not too far, this was our first visit and we were very pleasantly surprised. We had some great food - especially the lentil and ricotta "meatballs" that were wonderful and felt a bit healthy. Our waiter was great allowing us to split all the entrees and even our last glass of wine. We will be back !

We have always loved the outstandin
We have always loved the outstanding dishes at the Herb Box and have visited quite frequently this summer. In addition to their regular menu, they offered special dinner themes on a weekly basis - a different country each week, complete with a "passport" which they stamp when you visit! Lots of good spirit, great food and some unexpected surprises. To top it all off, they lifted their no reservations policy for groups under 6 and accepted reservations for smaller groups. That is a policy I would like to see all year-round!!!!!

A nice spot for Sunday Brunch
This is a great place to meet up with others for brunch. On Sundays the Herb Box offers a special brunch menu. The service was great and our server gave us some helpful recommendations for appetizers. We ordered the crab dip w/banana chip appetizer and although it sounds like a strange combination, the flavors work very well together. All the meals we ordered were delicious. I would highly recommend this place!

A group of 5 met for lunch. Everyone was so pleased with everything that they want to return asap. The fact that the food is both delicious and healthy was a bonus.

A Birthday gathering...
We had been to the Herb Box on the Waterfront, wanted to try DC Ranch...our waitress was wonderful and very helpful. Food was good, though I like the brunch menu better... would definitely go again.... a nice casual restaurant with a few different items....

Fantastic food, healthy options, delicious desserts - and all within an hour! Perfect for that much-needed break from work and catching up with old friends!

Lunch - YUM!
Recommended by a friend and what a delicious surprise! The food - Wonderful! We tried the Short Rib Tacos, Sweet Potato Tacos and Apple Frisee Slaw for lunch - delicious, fresh & very flavorful! Portions were generous & well presented. Dining room table proximity a little tight, noise level - intense. Staff was friendly, informative and prompt. We'll be back!

Great lunch spot
The Herb Box is a great place for lunch with really fresh salads and delicious hot entree options. I had the baby back ribs, served with a creamy side of Mac n cheese and apple slaw. Although the ribs could have been hotter, they were fall off the bone delicious. Perfect size for lunch. The apple slaw was tart and refreshing. I always like to try new dishes when I eat here, since everything sounds so good on the menu.

Great atmosphere, excellent food and excellent service (extremely helpful, friendly and responsive). A great way for us to start off our celebration of our 54th wedding anniversary. We even got a free desert!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you're taking out of town guests, or have a special occasion this is the place. The special touches I asked for were delivered to the max. (it was my husband's 75th birthday). Everything was better than I had wished. How often does that happen? But here, almost always. Love Herb Box
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
every single item we ordered was exceptional. it was our first visit, but we will definitely be visiting again.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I will be eating there again soon. Great food, reasonably priced and served with a smile.

After enjoying The Herb Box in Old Scottsdale, we tried the DC Ranch locale and found it just right, for a casual patio dinner, on a beautiful evening. Not as refined, nor as large as Old Scottsdale, it compliments the DC Ranch feel.

Had dinner outside on the patio. The food was good (shared the salmon and the pear/gargonzola flatbread). The desserts looked good but we were full. The view was also pretty. They were a little busy so service was a little slow but the staff was friendly. The setting was very chic and everything was clean. Cute neighborhood place we will be going back to.

Delicious Celebration Dinner
I took a girlfriend out to celebrate her bithday and we had a wonderful experience at The Herb Box. It was both our first time dining here and it was a perfect spot for a girls' night out. The food has so many unique combinations and it was all delicious. We shared the haloumi with peaches, crab dip, thai ribs and for dessert chocolate creme brulee and peach bread pudding. The only dish were weren't wild about was the bread pudding. It was a little too dense and dry and didn't have much peach flavor or a fabulous sauce to accompany it. Other than that, the ambiance, service and dining was perfect.

Their were 6 plus an infant. The food was delicious, atmosphere perfect and serivce was great. Oh the desserts were heavenly!!

Organic & tasty & trendy, oh my!
FIrst time tried with a neighbor pal after I saw a positive spread in our local paper. She ordered the short rib tacos, I got blackened salmon BLT with house made large ribbon sweet potato chips - both awesome. Just the service was slow and erratic; we had 3 different servers introduce themselves, took their sweet time about even getting water and menus to the table, and it was not half full at 12:15 yet, so, I'm just saying. What up with that? Otherwise, we will return, with more friends. Nice the patio is covered.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We are renting a place down the road and were looking for someplace where we could get something interesting along with a nice glass of wine. The restaurant is set in one of the loveliest neighborhood centers anywhere, with an overall style that I would call rustic contemporary.
We started with cilantro lime crab dip and plantain chips - awesome! My wife had baby back ribs that were memorable and my salmon was perfect with a not too sweet glaze. Nice selection of wines by the glass along with some interesting cocktails. Outdoor seating is available on a pretty deck. The bar scene is convivial with the majority being Boomers. We will definitely go back, which is probably the highest praise with so many choices for dining.
