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.

I have been to the Herb Box many times before. The menu has changes and there seem to be a lot fewer options. Considering their prices for lunch are toward the high side, I probably won't be going back unless their selection improves.

I made a reservation in advance the day before Mother's Day in order to avoid the holiday brunch. When we arrived, the restaurant wasn't very busy...about 50% full. They sat us right next to the kitchen door even though many other tables were open. I was a bit surprised as I had a reservation so thought I would receive better attention. After being sat, we had looked at the menu prior to arriving so we had narrowed it down to our top choices on what we were looking forward to. We were placing our orders and the server informed us that they were out of these items...which were two of their staple items. After finding something else to order, which wasn't what I really wanted, I also ordered a cold brew coffee off their menu. The server informed me it was just hot coffee poured over ice. I went ahead in hopes it would be proper strength iced coffee...it came out and looked like iced tea and tasted almost like water. It was a very disappointing meal for my mom for Mother's Day. I had been there several times before in years past and it wasn't like that at all...I'm guessing it has just gone downhill.

Our meal had some good elements and some not so great. The ribs had a good sauce but were lukewarm & frankly, the meat tasted warmed over. Also the desserts there are often uninspired. Hard to make a chocolate cake taste bland but it did and did not seem very fresh. That being said, we have had delicious meals there, just not consistently. Tonight was just ok. We still enjoy the atmosphere. The people are friendly and we will try it again.

This past time we ate outside, which was casual & comfortable. We took some friends who had not yet
been to The Herb Box. As always, the food was delicious and did not disappoint.

It was good that they served us an item off the lunch menu for dinner; greatly appreciate that. Did not appreciate paying $22 for a salad with salmon! Or, $15 each for glasses of Pinot noir when I can buy the whole bottle at Total Wine for $15! Too much markup! We won’t be rushing back here!

It was fine, food was fine, waitress was nice but we had a large party and she didn’t come by at all to refill waters or get drinks. She took forever with the check and splitting the check and then when we finally paid it was a very long time before we got our cards back and could leave. Food was good but my ribs were dry and mac n cheese was watery and a little cold. I know we had a big party but the restaurant knew in advance and still took a while to seat us... just felt a little bad because we were meeting for a nice dinner before my friends bachelorette and they didn’t really even try to be nice to her or say congratulations. They just looked annoyed that such a big group came in. Maybe if you have a smaller party they would be more accommodating.
