This place is perfect every time I go. Great service from Brittany and Clifford as well as Hunter and the managers every time we go.

This is my first restaurant review I've ever given. I felt obligated due to the quality of the experience here every time.

This was our second visit and was even better than the first. Chicken was enjoyed by some and I had the cauliflower steak which was artfully and creatively prepared. Our server was attentive; the appetizers however arrived about 30 seconds before the main meal so would have preferred some space. Guacamole is just okay - big hunks of avocado with relatively little seasoning. Net, okay for our family gathering to celebrate our son's birthday. This was noted on the Open Table reservation; Dough Bird however made no mention of it.

The dinner was all botched up. I made a reservation and it didn't even matter. Other people were receiving their meals as our table was still waiting for our meal. The meal did not arrive as it was ordered. It took over an hour to receive the meal. Nobody checked on empty drink glasses for 25 minutes. Dinner salad's did not arrive for 30 minutes. The server left a dirty glass from another table on our table. The dinner was a disaster and it is not worth the drive. It is a good think I did not have a movie or function to attend after dinner because I would have missed the event after all the time I spent waiting for this dinner to be over.
My advice, there are other places in town that do a better job.

I arrive on time for my reservation at 6 but had to wait 15-20 minutes to be seated. Once we were seated the waitress took our order after that it took 45 minutes to get our food. The food was very good. I had the Aviator pizza and my girlfriend had the barbecue chicken pizza. Once we got our food we did not see the waitress again until the check. She never refilled our drinks. I would definitely go back for the pizza however I would not go back for the ambience or the service I received.

We started with the cheesy bread with travel oil, I had the barbecued chicken salad and my husband had one of the pizzas, they were both excellent! But if you’re going for a quiet evening, expecting romance, you won’t find it here. It has that open concept that includes the ceiling so it is extremely loud and vary hard to hear each other talking.

We’ve been coming here since it opened and always loved it, but lately the portions have been getting smaller and smaller. We went in Labor Day to grab a bite. I realize it was a holiday, but it wasn’t very busy. We waited 40 minutes for 2 orders of carmelized cauliflower “steak” and a Cesar salad and we left starving. There wasn’t even a full slice of cauliflower on either plate. The waiter was useless when I asked what happened to the portions. We were beyond disappointed.

Overall, this is a great place. I’m a fan of the Fox Restaurant Concepts and this place is no exception. Our food was tasty and the butterscotch dessert was amazing! The only improvement I would recommend is a more attentive server. While he was pleasant, we did not receive much attention or check ins after the food was served.

You cannot ask for a better server than Hunter. Doughbird needs to add another Cider option. Too many good cider options to settle for Angry Orchard as the single offering

Great service. Food very good. Because of large room and high ceiling and kitchen activities as well as diners the noise level was very uncomfortable. Not conducive to conversation at the table and actually made my ears ring. Was a relief to leave to go outside where it was quiet.

Nice ambiance and atmosphere. Service was attentive and helpful. Appreciated the low carb options on the sides. Could tell that the chicken was high quality but could also tell that it had been removed from the rotisserie some time before it was served - lukewarm and skin was floppy. Was also charged for the extra serving of sauce which seemed unkind.

We were so incredibly disappointed. My husband and I, who had never been to Doughbird before, met another couple who had been there once. When trying to figure out what to order, our friend told us that he had had pizza the other time he had been there and did not recommend it..it was soggy. (Really? It's a pizza place!) Our other friend said she would get a salad like she did last time as she recalled liking it. (This time she said it wasn't as good! ) Our server was incredibly "short", in a hurry, and kept coming up to the table to ask if we were ready to order. He definitely was trying to rush us. He sort of loomed over the table when he approached. I did ask his name eventually since he never had volunteered it. We asked questions about the salmon and chicken. Honestly, he didn't know the answers. He told us that the 1/2 chicken is served boneless (not!) and that the salmon was "white". He didn't know if Scottish Salmon is farm raised or wild. When ordering the 1/2 of chicken, my friend was debating between 2 sauces and the server said, "oh you can have both". He was shocked to discover that he was charged $1.00 for the extra side of sauce!!! I discovered that fact too when I asked for a box to go and for some extra sauce since my husband and I split the one small container of sauce that was served for the entire whole chicken that we split. The server told me IT would be $1.00! This is a ridiculous charge for something that costs the restaurant pennies to make! Finally, the chicken was just fine. It tasted like any other rotisserie chicken that you can get at a grocery store which is much less expensive! I will never go to this restaurant again. I eat at many Fox restaurants and just can't believe how bad of an experience I had at this one. So disappointing!!!

Watermelon and Heirloom tomatoes salad wasn’t as good as it sounds on the menu.
Salad was swimming in dressing and there was very few pieces of the watermelon. I did mention to our waiter Clifford that if ordered this again I will request dressing on the side. Other than this salad the rest of the meal was awesome.

This was our first time dining at Doughbird. The atmosphere was ok (not to busy at 4:45), décor was PRETTY, food was tasty, and our service started out great. As our meal progressed we had to CONSTANTLY be looking for our server. She was nice, but we felt as if we were accidently seated in the wrong area when she was clear across the room at other tables at all times. We waited, waited, and waited to get refills on our drinks. During the summertime here in Phoenix, it's easy to quickly drink a glass of tea. It would have been nice to be checked on consistently during the meal. I'd love to recommend this place, but you can find other restaurants in the area with an atmosphere, décor, value, and great food that's similar, but with better service. Arcadia is one of the "nicer" neighborhoods in Phoenix, so expectations are high. Maybe better train the host/hostess to seat guest where servers are readily available, & train servers to check on guest frequently. We might give this establishment another try in the future, but not anytime soon.
