It was our first time coming to eat here. The food was delicious and the restaurant was beautiful! Our server Nick was wonderful! Super nice and very helpful! I think he is what helped our dinner night go smoothly
Could have left the misters on longer it got really hot outside after they turned off.
We had a great time and a great server. Always a staple for our family!
Culinary Dropout NEVER disappoints! 😁 The food was delicious and the service friendly 😊
We had a reservation for 4 and they seated us at a huge round table way in the back. could easily sat 8 or more. it was very stuffy and didn't feel like we were in Culinary Dropout at all. Went back to the hostess stand and asked for a new table. The gals up there weren't a help at all. they said that was the only table. So we left. I can't believe our reservation made 5 days before got us this terrible table.
Early Father’s day dinner. Food and service were both excellent!
Was an off day, have never experienced this service level before. Not a good server. Some people just have ni business being in the industry. We received our appetizers from a runner, normal. Then 15 min later our meals from runners, again, normal. What was not normal is during this entire time or server never brought our beers and wines to the table, I had to ask another sender walking by, so we received our drinks but they had been sitting so long on the bar top that they were no longer cold. Big bummer, since it was 112 outside and were were seated on the patio, which also was a bummer because when I made the reservation I requested inside. We will go back but it's clear it's increasingly difficult for places to find good employees.
I love the place unfortunately I didn’t consider the weather to be so hot when I made the reservation and it was quite humid sitting outside. The food and service was great. I would recommend there be an option to select seating inside or outside.
food was delicious 😋 loved the live music and service very good.
While delicious, the skirt steak portion was tiny. The fried chicken was overcooked to the point the white meat was inedible. 116 outside, had reservations but had to sit outside by the street. Multiple corporate parties and birthday parties = way too much noise and heat. Bonus points for valet parking. Server was great, knew the menu well.
Not worth it. Expensive. Lame service. Not a lot of options to eat
Delicious food, excellent service, super fun place to take the family! We go a few times a month!
My only complaint was the flies. We were at a table in the middle, flies hovered above us the whole time. We should have asked to move, but we didn’t. Next time,we know. I’m not sure, but would ceiling fans help.
I had the curry. It needs a better description on the menu. It was good, but not what I expected.
Everything was great, the only negative I’d say would be seeing several flys in the indoor section of the restaurant.
We were seated right away, and valet parking was super convenient.
Food was excellent, as was the wait staff service. The noise level, however, was ridiculously and unnecessarily loud, making the experience less than desirable. I would definitely return to this venue IF the noise level was significantly decreased.
The food and service was far from decent , my complaints were addressed and corrected which I am grateful for but it ruined the experience as well as the waitress picking up our food from the table very abruptly without asking if we were finished which we weren’t was extremely rude and with that being said I will not return or recommend this establishment
Great food value and fun place to eat. Great menu selection and everything was great, even the side salad which we could not put down. Well worth the dollars/
I always love it, it is my go to with friends that come in town, LOVE FOX RESTAURANT CONCEPTS!!! :)
Always a great time here. As usual the service and found was amazing.
Good food, great service and nice ambiance. Will definitely be back.
Always a great time, unfortunately the photo machine wasn't working, but still overall good food, drinks, and fun
I can sum up our experience here with one word: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Restaurant lost my reservation, service was polite but incredibly slow. Outdoor seating was very warm, cooling units were inadequate for space and heat of the day. Staff was fine but not overly accommodating. inconsistent use of masks, no COVID guidelines posted so I was unclear on what the expectations was. Dessert melted within seconds of being put on the table, marshmallow layer slid right off dessert within a few minutes due to heat. perhaps they could use cooler serving dishes to help combat heat if they are unable to accommodate guests inside?
16th birthday dinner
Our server Eli was the greates, he kept trying to find something for us to drink but the bar kept not having some very common drinks. The food was ok and the noise level was absolutley terrible.
The fried chicken was a little dry. Not great flavor. Mashed potatoes had nice flavor but were cold. The biscuit was delicious. My husband ate the cole slaw, said nice taste. The Korean skirt steak was flavorful and spicy. Not a huge portion. The overall atmosphere is super loud. Lots of TV's on which is good for sports watching.
Great food great service. I had 5 friends in from out of town and they thought it was a great choice.
Outstanding food. Great taste combinations. So glad to stumble upon this stop while visiting Phoenix!
Very fun place! Highly recommended
Great service and food experience but music was a little loud.
Kids loved running in the yard areas.
Great place but the parking is awful. It took me 25 minutes to find a spot and it was on the street.
Fun place to go with an active group, especially children. Food was delicious and generous portions. Drinks were great.
Had a great time on a first date
Unbelievably loud and we sat outside after our last loud visit inside. Why the D.J. Techno “music” at a restaurant beginning at 8pm? 7th St traffic noise was jarring too. I don’t think we are Culinary Dropouts demographic anymore. My Room Service drink was perfection.
We had made a reservation for our daughter bday and requested outside. When we arrived we were told we would be inside. The hostess was wonderful and quickly resolved the situation making room for us outside as requested.
Our waitress Jackie was incredibly friendly and nice! She was very accommodating and made the whole experience even better!
We loved this open air style restaurant. Nice vibe and exceptional food.
Didn’t even get past drinks and we had to leave. Not only did we get a burnt appetizer, but they were out of everything on the menu. Not to mention we were sat at a table smaller than a kids table. Miserable experience and embarrassing to mention.
Nice time all around. A bit noisy but nice and open, even in indoor seating area. Food was ample and tasty and the menu offered everything our party wanted in terms of type and size. Wine menu small but lots of beers.
