I made reservations for my boyfriend’s birthday. We had a wonderful time! Our waitress was attentive and patient. He was so happy I chose your restaurant...we will definitely be back soon! Thank you for being warm and welcoming to everyone, and not base the quality of service on any external things (race, etc). It means a lot!
See you soon,
It was fun
Excellent service, food and atmosphere. You will love it!
Loved the live music on Saturday night. Waitress was amazing. Great vibe
I come here a lot. But the service was so full and it wasn’t that busy this night
Vegetarian curry was way too salty. The pulled pork nacho was good but overall the food was just okay. Service was handled in a timely manner.
Was a relaxing atmosphere. Even though it was a bit noisy was to be expected due to the environment. Our server was very friendly and took time to welcome us and explain the menu. The food was very (kale salad with salmon) delicious. Even the valet personnel were accommodating and nice. Great evening!
BOOKING THE TABLE WAS THE HARDEST PART. I CALLED FOR A RESERVATION AND WAS TOLD NO TABLE AVAILABLE AT THE TIME I WANTED. WENT ON LINE AND IMMEDIATELY SECURED A TABLE AT THE TIME WANTED...WHAT IS WITH THAT??? SEEMS ONE WOULD SECURE TABLES FULL BY HOOK OR CROOK...NOT MAKE THE CLIENT DO THE WORK....JUST SAYING
Nice place to go with a fun vibe and an interesting menu. Great for a mixed group of casual or fancy people together.
Our dinner was excellent our server was by far one of the best she took such good care of us I would highly recommend her for big groups like what we had
Great atmosphere. Amazing food. Awesome service. Make a reservation so you don’t have to wait for a table!
Nice atmosphere in the outdoor seating, good vibe.
Server was so attentive and great. He made a great cocktail. Food was so-so. We both ordered a burger and fries. Nothing over the top but presentation wasn’t great for a $15 burger. Had coffee and that was good, not bitter. Ambiance was cool and typical for Culinary Dropout.
It was great we will be back for sure!
Pricilla was outstanding! Soo sweet & patient, thank you for the warm hospitality!
I put on the reservation it was a birthday, they didn’t sing or offer a bday desert.. our server always seemed out of breath when she came to the table. I asked for extra dressing and it came as a little glob on the salad, not too impressed.
Excellent food, service and had a really cool vibe about the place.
It closed at 9pm and my table was booked for 7.45 but we didn’t get rushed, I only wish I had of booked an earlier time!!
Family-friendly restaurant with a cool vibe. Service was excellent. Portions are huge.
great vibe! fun place to hang out with friends and good was great!
Waitress was super slow
Get the ribs. Good drinks. Good service.
Anya was an incredible server!
We were able to get in quickly but our drinks came out slower then we expected. Food was good but condiments, dressings were missing or came out after the food was almost completely eaten. Server was friendly and it was only his second day and tried to make everything right as best as he could.
Our waiter was super attentive and apologetic about the wait time on our food. I have been to this location a lot and every time is a little different experience on wait time for food. I have had really long wait times and some I swear were right after the order was put in.
This time was great and the live music is always a great touch.
Great ambiance - love the big, open spacious restaurant and the concept. The food is so-so, but it's a fun place to eat. The service was excellent, though, and so that was a plus.
The food was really great and I loved the whole place. Such a cool patio with great food and service. The ribs and harvest salad were great! Highly recommend.
Lisa totally rocked with good service! Spacing and setup was Covid safe.
Great place! Delicious food! Great server Anya! Would highly recommend. Will go back
Emily was sweet and patient with me. I was indecisive about wanting a drink and the monkey bread. I was full so we cashed out. But then we sat and talked for a while and I worked up an appetite. The monkey bread took a while but it was worth the wait.
We’re from San Diego and we came for brunch. It was delicious and perfect for our little family! 🤗
Was visiting Phoenix and this location came highly recommended. Casual atmosphere with great food and service. Not inexpensive, but has an array of items at differing costs. Highly recommend to other and definitely will visit again!
Love this place. All menu items are great
The food was so good that we joked we were so happy the chef had dropped out of culinary school!
Very good - been here a few times when we come to Tempe from Atlanta. The BEST margarita I have had "Margarrita PorFavor" - awesome !!!!
Love the setting and the service was great. Steak frites was delicious!
Had the chicken chop salad and it was really the best. My client had the prime sandwich and was really good. Look forward to returning.
Seat was so uncomfortable on the porch. Have eaten here many times but the food was cold and did not taste as good as it usually does
Service is spot on!
The service, food, environment was excellent. I will definitely come back.
