Loved it. Great pizza and awesome shishito peppers. Walked in 15 minutes before closing, no problem at all, very friendly and attentive service despite the late hour. Will definitively return.

First time to eat at Doughbird. Was very impressed. Barbecue chicken pizza was excellent. And our appetizers, peppers and hummus was outstanding.

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.

Was so excited to try another (new to us) fox concept.
Meh...
bright and airy design
Etch a sketch is a favorite always
Very smiley sweet enough server- downhill from there
Drinks arrived sporadically
Appetizer forgotten- only arrived via manager after we inquired about it. 2 minuets later main course arrived
No check back
Plates not cleared
Manager mentioned apps were on him- never taken off check
Check dropped, never saw server again
Quite frankly have never left such a poor gratuity (having been in service oriented industry all my professional career)
But at this point I am just over spending good money on poor quality and inconsistent service
This local company especially should be doing better

I’ve had this place on my list of must go’s since I moved to Phoenix 2 months ago. I LOVE good pizza and not only was the pizza fabulous, but the hummus was delicious as was my margarita. I appreciate a well designed restaurant and this place did not disappoint.

I was talking to Levi who works in the rotisserie area, and he spoke so highly of his job and the food that I couldn’t wait to try it. I was not disappointed. The best Prime Rib I’ve had in a long while. We took our good friends out and a second meal was ordered because it was so good. We plan on returning in the near future. Our waiter was very nice and attended to our every need, thanks Clifford.

I have been to this restaurant several times, thought it would be great to take my parents out to for Fathers Day, since they have never been. Unfortunately we had a waitress that you could tell didn't want to be at work. Her attitude was horrible and she was very snippy and didn't talk when she should have. ex. food was brought out by other servers she came by the table and just glared at us and kept on walking, didn't check to see if we needed anything didn't see if we got everything just kept it moving. Also when I asked for a straw for my kids because they ordered hot tea she challenged me by saying it will melt the straw and didn't think I needed one. Yes ma'am u are right if my children drank piping hot tea it sure would but they pretty much order the tea and wait for it to get to room temp hence they wanted straws. For a fathers day lunch and me telling him what a great place it was I felt bad we had such a rude waitress, bad first impression for them. We both tipped 15% & I left a note that said "have a blessed day" because maybe she wasn't having a good one. But remember to smile and be kind it will get you much further in life.

Great visit tonight. Our food was good and the service was attentive. My second drink took a bit longer to come out than expected, which was not a big deal. Without asking we had a visit from the manager and a comped round of drinks. We sat outside and the atmosphere was great

Sam Fox is great at creating a space that feels welcoming and modern. And the staff are trained very well. However, sometimes the food isn’t on par with the ambiance. The couple of times we’ve ordered the chicken, it’s been tasty, but not like it was recently out of the oven...more like it’s been retrieved from a warming bin when ordered. That aside, overall, this restaurant delivers a good culinary experience.

I have been there several times for lunch. This was the first time for dinner. The hummus was not as good as the one served for lunch. I was so surprised. We rave about it at lunch. Most of the group didn’t particularly care for it at dinner. The service all the time is superior.

Server was pretty busy that night, so we were a bit neglected (forever to get the food and check, didn’t have water for most of the evening). But the food was amazing as always. Got chicken with macaroni and cheese and 3 sauces. My favorite is the lemon garlic sauce.

The restaurant looks clean and well organized. We were seated near a window so it was nice to look out to the streets. Our waiter was fast to bring us water and the menus so services were very good. Our salad came out fresh and the buffalo chicken wings were so tasty. We all ordered pizza different with toppings and they all tasted good!
In all, the food and services were very good.

I received an e-mail, that we caused YOU a problem by not showing -up for our RESERVATION, when indeed we did. OUR experience was not a good one! We had a reservation, and still waited at least 35 min. We noticed others being seated, as we waited and waited! The next complaint, (FOOD) I believe the Brussels Sprouts were hard as a rock! - Pizza cold, - no QUITENESS at this place? For the amount of money we spent, WE were not impressed!! THE Server MARK was the only best part of our evening! Our ticket # 20038 5/26/2018 @8:40. It was a recommendation, to try THE Doughbird. Our recommendation to Family & Friends ( ? )
