A word from The Herb Box - Old Town
The Herb Box is powered by duo co-owners Susan Smederovac-Wilcox and Chef Becky J. Windels. Their approach can be summed up in three words: Innovative World Creations. Always on the lookout for the new, Chef Becky seems to be driven by the joy of daily epiphanies. Endless new recipes come from taking what is freshest at the farm stand and being open-minded enough to having an idea drive her in the kitchen. The breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are vast and varied, ensuring an entrée for every palate.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The service stood out during my recent outing to the Herb Box. As usual the food was good , but the attention paid the patrons by the wait staff was exceptional."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The overall service was poor. Our server had too many tables to handle some with very large parties. As a result we had to flag her down for most everything including the check."

  • "I have dined here several times for lunch, food is always good as is the service. Dinner service is lacking. finally got my glass of wine a minute before my meal arrived. She told me the bar was busy. Really there were maybe half a dozen people in the place when we arrived. waitress never came back to refill water. Had to finally ask for water when she gave us the bill. It wasn't busy so couldn't understand why we never saw her again."

  • "Great Kobe burger. Wooden tall seats need cushions - please! Be prepared for high energy and somewhat noisy. Nice location in old town."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Wrong food, late food, salty food, other peoples food. Go to the herb box in n Scottsdale. Much better."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "So much went wrong with our meal that it defies belief. Suffice to say that when meals eventually arrived, even though they were not what we had ordered, we ate them anyway. We've been eating out virtually every week in Scottsdale and Phoenix for 15 years and never had such a poor experience. It was so bad it was comical."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband and I went to The Herb Box for Valentines Day dinner.. We were served multiple courses, and all were presented beautifully. We felt that most of the food was over-sweetened, with the exception of the chicken, which was fantastic! The dessert was wonderful (a date pudding , I believe), and the muffins sent home with us were yummy!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food met our expectations but service did not! Reservation through Open Table but forgot to use special request area for patio seating & needed to be moved. Confusion with service."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "After booking my reservation, as I always do during my extensive travels nationwide...the hostess stated that she did not have a table on the patio as requested previously on my Open Table request...she stated that she just had a party of 20 come in...excuse me...a party of 20 drop in's and our Open Table reservation could not be met. Please note that several tables on the patio were within minutes of clearing. The hostess showed us an indoor table in the middle of the dining room, clearly not what we wanted--she quickly stated we could speak with a manager. We did. We were seated within a couple of minutes on the patio as originally requested. Manchego omelet was dry with no cheese, our other food was good. What a shame."

  • "We will return! I like the small items on the menu. The house salad, which was not on the menu, was perfect."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "And great results! It is refreshing to Visit a restaurant that exceeds our expectations. We had a fabulous dinner and will def return?"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "With so many high-quality restaurants pricing themselves in the stratosphere, it is refreshing to find that rare combination of excellent food, excellent staff, serving high quality meals without tipping the scales. entrees range from $13-25, not 25-50, and are better than three big name restaurants on the other side of the canal."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "First time to The Herb Box - certainly hope it won't be our last. Each item on the menu was unique and delicious. Our server (Andy) was extremely friendly and helpful. This is definitely a jewel in Scottsdale."

  • "Met some friends that I hadn't seen in a while. We had a great time catching up and such. So much so we decided to get together after the first of the year. Making the reservation on-line was very convenient and our server Rico(?) was wonderful."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "I love the food here. I will always love the food here. Normally, I come for brunch or happy hour and sit at the bar or outside. Twice, I've sat inside at a table, this time being most recent. I must say, if this had been my first time at herb box, I would probably not come back. The service is painfully sloooooow. And it was the last time I sat at a table too. Bar service/outdoor service is exceptional. Indoor, not so much. We waited 20 mins after beig seated before our server even approached us. And getting our tab took just as long (and unsurprisingly managed to be incorrect -- it was remedied in a very appropriate and appreciated way, however). If you eat inside at a table, make sure you aren't pressed for time."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "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."

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

  • "The Herb Box is a "must" for anyone who appreciates great food, ambiance, service, and a wonderful location in Scottsdale."

  • "Food took much too long to come out. It all was cold as if it just came out of the refrigerator. A ruined evening out"

    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "I have been to the Herb Box with large groups on several occasions and have never been disappointed until this time. We went for brunch on a Sunday and sat on the patio. They were busy, but not slammed. Everything we ordered took an abnormally long time to get, even our water. Then when our food finally came out, there were several things missing or cooked incorrectly, including bacon with a breakfast that includes bacon and a fried egg on a flat bread. When the egg did finally come out, it was over cooked. Another set of eggs was also over cooked. Other than the over cooked eggs, the food was good, as usual. Just not on par with the service this visit."

  • "They only had two cooks so we waited forever to get our food and ended up there much longer than we wanted"
