Finally, a place with food selections that met the diverse dietary needs of our team! Even better was that everyone loved what they ordered. I recommend the salmon. Most were too full for dessert but that didn't stop some from dessert to go...thumbs-up to vegan pumpkin whoopee pie, brownie and apple cake!

My two friends and I are eager to return for another lunch. We really enjoyed the food and our waitress was very good. She knew when to serve and then when to remove the finished service dishes giving us sufficient visiting time. As I had noted on the reservation we were celebrating a birthday. In fact we were celebrating two birthdays and she went to the kitchen and promptly brought us each a plate with a delicious cake pop. Just the right touch to end a fantastic birthday lunch .

Herb Box is my favorite go to lunch spot! John provides the best service and keeps up with my tea fills. Sweet potato tacos are my absolute favorite. Yum! Awesome service every time. That’s why I have been known to come more than once in a week!

Herb box you’re the best!!

The trout is SO delicious that we came back 2 nights later to get it again. Please don’t change the way it’s prepared. This one is a “keeper.”

Perfect patio seat and quickly waited on by Maddie!! She was personable and efficient. Drinks were quickly served. My wife loved the chicken mushroom with orzo. My daughter enjoyed her chicken salad with avocado, I had the sliders. Fantastic!! The brie cheese was a special touch!! A very enjoyable family event!! Thank you The Herb Box!!!

We went to The Herb Box for Sunday brunch. When we entered the front door we waited quite a long time to find someone to seat us. The food was very good but the service was average. This restaurant is small and quaint but found being so close to the bar, it was very noisy. Several empty bottles would be chucked into the trash can and was obnoxiously loud and disturbing to the customers. I will visit this restaurant in the future may just not sit so close to the bar.

The Herb Box is a lovely place to eat lunch. It has a first rate patio, not quite as comfortable inside but it's still charming. The food is good! It could be excellent if they used the proper dishware... I hate a dinner salad on a small plate! Loved our server, very kind and good natured!

Convenient location to meet a friend for lunch. Have not been there in awhile. Ordered the chicken avocado salad which was good but not sure worth the money. Might need to try something else.

Rated (4) stars: Both my lunch date, and I ordered the same thing, only they had restrictions. The food runner brought out the dishes, but when I asked about mine, and why there was no dressing on the salad, she was defensive, saying they use very little. Clearly you could see, there was not a stitch of dressing on my salad, and some of the ingredients had been left off. Come to find out, the runner had mixed up the dishes, therefore both dishes had to be sent back, and remade. Our server was super, and made sure everything was as ordered.

A fun casual spot in DC Ranch. Happy Hour specials are a great value. The bartender was attentive and knowledgeable about the full menu too. Abundant flavors and with appropriate portions.

Honestly, the Herb Box isn't what it once was, but luckily, the quality of the food has remained consistent and the service is always outstanding. I'll continue to go and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Herb Box to anyone, just need to get some of it's flare and differentiation back.

So the service we got was pretty poor--our drinks were late, she didn't come back in to check in on us, and when my mother and I were finished with our cocktail, she didn't see if we wanted another one. I typically love the herb box and so I will always recommend it and go, so I am summing this up to having a bad night. In fact, I love the herb box so much that we were there to celebrate my birthday which we put on our reservation, however, nothing special was done and this was the worst service experience I had at the restaurant. Really disappointed and my family and I usually spend $100-200 more than what we spent that night as we never got the opportunity to order more cocktails.

Love the food, but the service that night was not what I am used to at this great restaurant. I've always had great service at the Old Town Scottsdale location so I think I will only go there from now on.

Tried numberous times to check the low noise level on open table and was only sucessful to finish the survey by letting the site choose moderate. 😤😞 Low noise is desirable for some of us.

Food and service were great as always.

I wish the Old Town Scottsdale location would address and try to install some ceiling or wall decor that would absorb the noise. Until then, the DC Ranch location will get my business.

The DC Ranch location is in my neighborhood and one of my favorite places to dine especially on the patio. All the servers are great and my last experience was good. I must explain a previous experience which was 2 weeks ago on a Sunday. Th service and the food was not the usual. Maybe you were short on personnel. Just thought you should know.

Absolutely incredibly delicious meal! We are picky and everything was perfection in flavor! We ate at true food the day before and it was good but this was far better. Brussels were oily but heavy in flavor with delicious sauce I couldn't get enough of. Mezzo board the red pepper hummus was the star but all of them shined bright! Pork tacos were filled with generous portion and flavor! Sweet potato avocado Baja bowl was very good as well, but heavy in rosemary ingredient but overall we will be back very soon and frequently, refreshingly good meal.
