I had such a wonderful time at switch with friends and family even my two toddlers (2&5) for my birthday! I had the blackberry mojito which was amazing and a bottle of their champagne (also amazing). There was about 12 of us and no one had to wait long for anything. Our server was aaaamazing so wonderful!! I’ll definitely be back!

We walked in and the restaurant was about a third full. We waited with 2 other couples for about 10 min with no attention. Finally some one said they were short staffed and they’d be with us shortly. They could have sat us at one of the many open tables and offered us a drink until someone could take our order but they didn’t seem interested in making us feel welcome. We sat at the bar, ordered a drink and waited .... we ended up leaving and walked in (without a reservation) into Durant’s next door and had an excellent meal with excellent service.

All their food items have creative twists that makes their food sand out. Catfish sand and meatloaf sand are outstanding. The twisted fries are bites of heaven! Don’t miss the Mexican Street corn-beautiful and delicious. And......they speak gluten free! Exceptional house red wine!

A friend and I ate at the bar. We split a fabulous watermelon salad - too big for one. I had the buttermilk fried chicken, which was to die for (I'm still alive, really.) Great neighborhood spot. Great wines. I wanted beer, which they have, though - oddly nowadays - not on draft.

The food was phenomenal but it isn’t a wine bar. However, the food is so good, it doesn’t matter. I will go back. If they have some good wine, then even better.

We drove from Northeast Scottsdale/Phoenix to try this place and would definitely go again. The food was wonderful. The Meatloaf was out of this world as were the sides I had - Greens and the Corn. My husband had the Chicken Pot Pie which had a puff crust on top. It was above average but not as special as the Meatloaf. All the dinners we saw come out look great. Servings were large - we took a lot home. We tried the Blueberry Bread Pudding - awesome! Even sharing, we took enough home to split it again.
Service was great and the atmosphere was very comfortable. The patio is enclosed on both sides by the building and would be very nice when the temperature is lower.
We'll definitely be back!

Tried the Brunch menu with carafes of bloody marys and screwdrivers. Started out by trying the soft pretzels, very good. Galette with eggs and sausage was delicious, buttery and deceptively large. Partner had the eggs benedict and was very pleased. The carafes were delicious, but in the future we will split one...or not. We will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu. Service was very friendly and attentive.

Switch was just the right place for a causal date night. The service was impeccable and friendly. The music is low enough that to can have a quiet conversation with your partner. We're definitely going back and recommending the restaurant.

The Mimosa was delicious and a carafe was half-priced during brunch. I had the crustless turkey quiche and wished now I had taken a picture to post in my review. The turkey quiche was a square serving about inches tall with asparagus topped with a slice of fresh tomato and shaved parmesan on a bed of home fry pototoes in béchamel sauce. It was my first time at Switch and invited 2 friends who also thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, food and relaxed atmosphere. Our server was very friendly and attentive.

Wanted a nice lunch to celebrate our anniversary so we decided to search Open Table for a restaurant near downtown. I found several that looked intriguing and decided on Switch because of the reviews and the menu looked like it had some interesting choices. When we arrived for our 1:30 reservation it took several minutes before we were acknowledged. We were seated and given a brunch menu that was really a breakfast menu. We were very disappointed and decided to leave. As we were leaving we advised the hostess that we were disappointed that the regular menu was not available on Sundays. She quickly advised that the full menu was available and we could order from it so we decided to stay. Would have been nice if we were originally offered the regular menu upon seating.

I ordered the Fried green tomatoes, which was what really caught my eye when searching for a place. They were awful. A thin slice of tomato buried in a thick pancake coating of cornmeal that had no seasoning. All you could taste was cornmeal grit and when you tried to remove it to get some tomato flavor, the small amount of tomato was just mush. They were accompanied by a corn salsa and aioli that did have a nice flavor.
My husband ordered the chicken pot pie, which was a layer of mashed potatoes covered with chicken pot pie filling and topped with puff pastry. Interesting take on traditional pot pie, but too much mashed potato and just so-so. I ordered the Po Boy with blackened fish accompanied by Mac & cheese as the side. You couldn’t eat the Po Boy with your hands as it just fell apart. Too much tartar sauce and a little over seasoned, which is strange for me to say as it’s usually the opposite when I order something like this.
All in all, we found Switch to be mediocre and would not go out of our way to return.

I love taking my girlfriend to Switch -- it's her "take-me-to" place for a burger and a glass of wine. Switch attracts a lot of people who live in this area of Phoenix. Nicole's service was excellent, and my girlfriend and I enjoyed meeting Katey (my apologies if I misspelled either of these two names). I look forward to our next date at Switch.
