Culinary Dropout at the Yard - Phoenix
Our gaming area is 21+ Fri-Sat after 6 pm.
I had the steak tacos and they were DELISH! great atmosphere. Very fun and lively.
Super cool vibe in the restaurant but full of young kids running around. I understand family friendly, but this was almost like a Chuck E Cheese.
Took 10-15 minutes to get our first drink, without explanation until we asked.
Make your own cheeseboard was awesome. Highly recommend.
Salads we ordered were ok, we asked for dressing on side but came smothered in dressing. Too hungry to send back. The fried chicken was great and worth the extra wait (notified of wait ahead of time!)
All in all, a solid B grade on the experience.
So much fun! It was nice to sit outside and enjoy the sun.
We loved the Dropout in Austin, this is not the same vibe. The food was burnt and the quality wasn't great. We were disappointed overall.
What a fun place! Terrific food, always energetic, pleasant servers. Just wish the noise level was lower. The blasting music is not needed. There is plenty of noise from the number of people, or the street when outside.
We love the trout dish. It is delicious. Service is good, very attentive, just right. My wife really liked her cocktail - La Vida Verde. So much she had a second, which is not typical of her.
Great food and ambiance
The hostesses were very rude.
We have been to culinary dropout many times and enjoyed it but this time was not a good experience. From the moment we walked in the hostess did not have menus and was rude. The waitress did not seem to care about our table and we heard excuse after excuse why we hadn't received menus, why our food took a long time, why one dish was forgotten, why our drinks did not arrive (apparently they were out of wine glasses but there was a stack of them at this bar in eyes view). Overall not a positive experience and now we are unlikely to return. Sad!
Food and service are always phenomenal! I highly recommend this establishment.
Hey I loved everything except my table, they need to make sure they are fulfilling or asking table requests. Especially requests from Open table.
Service was slow and poor. However, a manager came and made it right!
Loved it!! We had our daughter and a few of her friends at a separate table (birthday) and the service was just fabulous for both us and them! Great food, great vibe, loved it. Will totally come again.
Your manager MJ (I think that's her name, she's beautiful with cool tattoos), Sean and Ben are a credit to your team. We had reserved a hightop for 10, however the folks there before us were making no effort to leave, even after being politely informed by your server that they were overstaying their welcome by 30 minutes. Instead of leaving us standing there like zombies, MJ found us alternative, and even better seating around the fireplace. It was so fun that our group grew to 16 or more throughout the evening, and your crew handled them with grace and very professional service. Bravo!
Great food and good service! Just a bit noisy, but otherwise a good experience.
Fun place to go. Good food, wait staff and atmosphere.
Outstanding food. Outstanding service. Parking is crowded.
On our way to a concert at the VanBuren. Everything was great as always!
We love Culinary Dropout and The Yard! It’s a great place to be able to get great food and drinks with a chic laid-back atmosphere! Always a good time!
Horrible service but food was good.
My daughter and I had a lovely early dinner on a Sunday. The music was not unbearable. It was a friendly family atmosphere. The food was very good and plentiful. The pretzels and cheese dip was fun!. The valet parking was quick - there wasn't any other parking option. The server was very attentive and we saw many people enjoying the outdoor play area. Overall it was a good experience.
This visit was not so good we got into our seat on time however service was very slow it took an hour for our food and when we got it 2 of the dinners were cold. It took the server a long time to get back to us
Our waitress Lexi was absolutely amazing. A great place to hangout with friends. The food never disappoints!
Awesome! Great people and food. Like the upfront app menu where you order like you would at a sushi restaurant. 👍🏻
Place was super fun. It’s definitely loud but still very fun
Great atmosphere for some good food, playing some ping pong or corn hole, and enjoying some yummy spirits!
Had the apple monkey bread for dessert. It was great!
Loved the atmosphere. Had fun in the outdoor area. Look for photo machines
It's very eclectic....the food is awesome....the wait staff is friendly, but too busy....gets a bit noisy when busier.
Fun place. Great service! Would definitely recommend.
Always a great experience. And a great brunch too!
It was way Too loud in there.
please turn the music down.
I love the food and the lively action around the restaurant. I also like the valet parking. It can be a bit noisy however. Some smoother background music over rock music might help (full disclosure-I’m a senior!)
Service was great! The pretzel bites and fondue appetizer is outstanding! It is rather noisy in the main restaurant and one of our table guests received 2 items that were not pleasing. However, our waitress was fabulous and very helpful!
Total relaxed environment for our first date on the patio.
A fun place to go for delicious food. Sandwiches, soup, salads and a variety of dinners are available. A little noisy, but not too bad. Free valet parking
Always a fun place to get together with family and friends. The wait staff was especially good today.
The staff was really nice and helpful. The food was excellent. A bit chilly on the patio”Yard” area.
Good food, good service, a fun atmosphere. Very, very loud though. If you want to have a conversation, Culinary Dropout on a Saturday evening is probably not the place to go.
