Fantastic food and fun atmosphere. We sat outside for dinner under the mister and felt great. The pretzel and cheese app is a MUST! We also ordered the kale salad and fried chicken which was also amazing. Make a reservation or you won’t get in. It’s worth it
Great food and great service! A little crowded at times but absolutely great!
Restaurant wasn't crowded when we got there, but filled up quickly Food was good
Great experience!!!! Would come back again!!!!!!!!
Our server was fantastic! She was incredibly kind and nice. Can’t remember her name. Shorter blonde hair and was wearing a few necklaces.
Every time my husband and I visit Scottsdale, we enjoy Culinary Dropout. Drinks are excellent and reasonably priced. Staff are attentive and friendly. Food is fresh and excellent in flavor and size. We have had the kale salad, fried chicken, lasagna, turkey pastrami sandwich, and Brussel sprouts. All very good !
Great place. Food was very good. Staff was EXCELLENT.
Super good food, drinks were great as well (quite sweet). Hard to find parking though, but we didn't realize you can pull in just before the restaurant and there is convenient parking behind it (as it is on a busy street).
Very good service! The food was incredible!
The service was unbelievable!
The food was excellent!
The live music was awesome!!
First time at this location, I've been to the one downtown and loved the meal there so thought this would be a great place to meet some friends I hadn't seen in a long time. The food and drinks were good, we had very good service. As it got a little later into the night, it was really loud and hard to carry on a conversation. I should have chosen another place that I didn't have to yell at the person next to me but would definitely go back and also try other locations I have not been to yet.
Delicious cuisine with excellent atmosphere… only negative, which I can overlook, was our table being right next to the door. Highly recommend the fried chicken and my wife loved her spicy vegan curry.
Our server was amazing!
Service was amazing!
Best fried chicken I have ever had.. Overall amazing
Okay - disclaimer- my husband and I are 50 and we were with our sons who are 20 and 21. We hated it, they thought it would be a cool place to come if they were a little older. WAY too loud for us. And way too hot to eat outside. We ended up all getting salads, which were pretty good. Server was a pro.
Maybe not the best place for a personal conversation but definitely the best to have fun.
Good all around.
Sarah was Amazing!!!
Great food and service. Will be back very soon!!@@
Always great food and a fun environment at the various Dropout locations. Homemade chips and onion dip are a great indulgence and the charcuterie never disappoints. If you like a little heat the jalapeno margarita is terrific. Augie was our ever enthusiastic server who had great guidance and energy.
Visited this location while on vacation everything was fantastic from the food to the ambience! Will definitely be back
The fried chicken is fantastic. The drinks are definitely on point!
Great ambiance, pretzel bites and ribs where amazing! Really liked the avocado Caesar salad but 3 of our kids didn’t because it was not the traditional flavor they were seeking. Loud but ok with our party of 9.
Our 1st time dining here and the food was absolutely delicious. We were expecting the live band which was the reason we chose this place; however the band plays only on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays evenings. So we will return on one of those evenings to really experience the full effect of Culinary Dropout.🤩😋🎼
Fantastic food. Great service and ambience. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all delicious!
Brunch was on point. Thanks!
The food is certainly ok. However this place was so so noisy we won’t be back. And the place was only HALF full
Augie was amazing! He made our brunch experience perfect!
Love the atmosphere and our waiter was amazing!! The food could be better but good for basic bar food.
Very good dinner and fun restaurant. Will be back.
Great service and great food! My husband loved the fried chicken, said it was the some of the best he’s ever had. Only downside was the noise level but that won’t keep us from going back.
This place is very nice. From the welcoming first interaction to paying the tab, every single detail is closely observed and obviously in pursuit of excellence. The food was better than I expected and the staff were friendly, helpful and humbly proud. I will definitely recommend and will return. Thanks to everyone who made our business dinner a success! It was a little loud with an echo due to the high ceilings, so made hearing others across the table a bit difficult but not unmanageable.
Loved our experience at CD! Our first time in and the waiter was outstanding. Very knowledgeable about the menu . The food was great . We had the deviled eggs as an appetizer. Highly recommend them . My salmon was cooked to perfection .
The specialty drink menu is terrific . Next time I’ll Uber and try a few more
It was very overrated. The food was good but not exceptional. The service was pretty bad. And the ambience was not what it was cooked up to be.
Great food. Great staff.
We brought our Out of town guests for brunch. Food was amazingly good with a fun ambiance. The breakfast sandwich was raved about and my salad with choice of protein: salmon is my go to!
My daughter’s 22nd birthday
The atmosphere was extremely lively, however that did not ruin the overall experience it more or less enhanced it. The waiters are super friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was even more spectacular. 100% worth it and can’t wait to visit again!
