Gosh darn yummy. Way cool waiter.
Drinks were splendid.
Freaking heaven on earth.
“Yum Yum Eat ‘Em Up”
Loved it! Can’t wait to go again!
Really great food and fun atmosphere! We came in with a large party and they totally accommodated us. The only thing I would say was off was one of the hostess's reacted in a rude way when I approached about giving a review. For future reference no matter what the customer is approaching for never turn away from them and roll your eyes like they don't deserve your time because you assumed it was a complaint. Its not a good look! Other than that everything was great!
took customer for business dinner and it was super inviting and fun! great food!
Great food! Great service! Can’t wait to take the kids! I love the potential for large special occasion groups.
Everything was very good. Went with girl friends and we all had different items which we all enjoyed very much. We got the Brussel sprouts for an appetizer which I would highly recommend.
Great food , service , and vibes
My husband and I went for Valentine’s Day. Although we had some issues with one of our meat platters being forgotten, the manager did an excellent job by offering to provide us with a free dessert.
The only thing that bugged us was our waitress didn’t even acknowledge the issue she had forgotten. We weren’t upset, we had asked another waitress on the status and the manager came directly out.
It was a fun atmosphere, the food was amazing, and the band playing was great. We will definitely go back.
I made a reservation yet, they were sitting people who were just getting there.
It was great! Food was very good!
Valentine’s date. Vinyl Station was playing live and they were fantastic. Had dinner and afterwards sat by the fire and relaxed while enjoying the music. Very great date!! And our waiter was the BEST!! John, thx for such great service!!
Absolutely perfect! Great place for a casual lunch date...
First time i have had bad service at this location. Took 30 minutes before server understood that beers came from other bar. Then another 15 minutes to get them. 45 minutes for refills of beers, soda and water is too long. Food thing was original table had a lot of bees around and one child was allergic. Staff was very good about relocating us
It was so loud we had to practically YELL to speak to each other. Never coming back.
Amazing food, amazing atmosphere, severs that we’re willing to help you decide what you want, and a bartender that recommended some great drinks, overall great experience, we will be going back for sure!
Great place for happy hour
Fabulous experience, just would have enjoyed our dessert with lower lights, it was closing time, but would have rather skipped desert.
Everything about this location was stellar! The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the restaurant itself was very clean and stylish. The only thing I would change would be the volume of the music. Too loud. I practically had to yell at my date to have a conversation.
Food was delicious and service was very millennial. Took 10 mins for someone to greet our table. Then another 15 mins later we got drinks from the bar. We immediately ordered another round so we could have another drink before dinner was over. No staff seemed to really care about the service or pace of the evening. After dinner we hoped to play some yard games. One ping pong table was open but they only had 1 paddle...the hostess just shrugged her shoulders at the amount of choices left. Again, she could care less about the customer. Very disappointing as the Culinary Dropout in Scottsdale was amazing and we expected the same at this location.
This was a fun place to go for all members of a three generational family. Food and service were excellent. Patio warmers kept everyone comfortable and on a Wednesday evening there was plenty of access to the games.
Arrived for our reservations and we were sat promptly. Food was very good and we had great service from Chloe. Would recommend Culinary Dropout!
Three appetizers were ordered but they came out one at a time and roughly ten minutes apart. One was the chips and dip - it had barely any chips so we ran out quickly. I asked if we could get some more chips and the waitress said yes but input a whole second order and charged me for it! And by the way - the second order of chips had like 50% more chips than the first order. Not very consistent.
In the yard area there is no cocktail service. When you go to the bar to get a drink you have to wait in a line which kind of takes away from hanging out with your friends who are in the yard playing games. All in all I think we would have had a better experience elsewhere.
The atmosphere is awesome. My husband and I were there on a Monday night but it was still very energetic. We shared the brussels sprouts, which were amazing. I had the vegan curry, it was excellent. I’m sure I could have added some protein to it but I didn’t even need it, it was very filling. My husband had the ribs and he said they were also amazing. They make everything from scratch so they do not mind if you have any kind of substitution. They also have where you can make an anti-pasta board. You choose the meats, cheeses, etc. kind of like getting sushi. This place is kind of like a sports bar with TVs all over. They also have an area where you can play pool, ping-pong and corn hole. All in all our meal was top notch. We will definitely go back and I would highly recommend this place. I would think it would beWise to have a reservation if you were going on the weekend.
We love culinary Dropout and go often. Can’t wait for the new location at Scottsdale quarter
We’ve been to the one in Scottsdale, but the addition of the games in the Yard made this experience amazing.
Service too long to get attention. Chicken wings blunt but the burgers were great. Good ambience
Incredible Food and friendly staff! Can’t wait to come back!
So loud we couldn’t have any conversation. Great concept and probably more fun for lunch. Good fried chicken.
For the first time definitely an experience and have planned to go back for multiple visits. The food is really good, drink recommendations were on point! The ambiance was relaxing very friendly and my husband loved the live music. Our daughter definitely enjoyed it as well !
The atmosphere is cool. The service is great, and the food is delicious!
Good fun and fun for out of town guests
Small menu but a nice variety of options. They didn't have flavored coffees or hot chocolate which might be nice for brunch and for those who dont drink regular coffee or tea. Food and service were great. Will definitely go back again.
We met our daughter’s boyfriend for the first time. We all had a great time. We’ll be back!
Culinary Dropout is a great dining experience. This was our first time going to the Phoenix location and it was a treat. As usual, the staff was awesome, efficient accommodating and friendly. The food was good and the menu has something tasty for everyone. In this location, the men's and women's restrooms have a common entry and hand washing area (you go through another door to get to the toileting area)--this is kinda strange but fits with the vibe. if you're in The Yard area, the ambient noise is loud but doesn't make you have to yell in order to have a conversation.
Out side of taking 25 minutes to get a server to our table on the patio, everything was great.
The server was great at leading us into their tastiest, most popular dishes. We’ve never been there, so we appreciated the guidance. The fried chicken was incredible and the biscuit was rich enough to serve as dessert. We really enjoyed it. Fun atmosphere.
Great place and good food.
Great holiday meal deal. Food was top notch! Great table, hostess was efficient. Waitress had difficulty with order, probably because the noise level was so loud she couldn't hear us.
New Year’s Eve.
I love this place..............................................................................
