While the environment was very laid back, the service and food were both excellent. The restaurant itself is very nice with an adorable little patio where my family and I ate. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was very quick and friendly. I absolutely recommend this restaurant.

Had a terrific dinner here the other night before the Orpheum theater, loved the baked brie and the soup of the day. My husband and I split the meatloaf which was very good, I would order it again with ketchup instead of barbecue sauce. Our server Brian enhanced our meal he was very friendly and gave us some great suggestions

Try the dump truck. But split it because it's huge. Pretzels are great as are the clams.

The food and service were outstanding. Excellent value. The decor is probably a matter of taste, but it's rather cold and dark. Would definitely go back to try other menu items.

I lived near Switch and eat there many times. I have moved but Feb. 16 I took friends there. I arrived and was shown to a table and the waiter, complained how they did not have host that day. There were only about 5-6 tables of people. I sat for 15 minutes before the very harried waiter asked me if I wanted drink, he got my drink but the order was wrong, he replaced my drink with correct drink. My guests arrived and again a wait. The waiter finally asked my friend if she wanted drink, she ordered. A few minutes alter we could see her drink on the bar. Another order was placed on bar and waiter took that order first. After about 15 minute wait we reminded him we had not gotten drink. The food arrived and it was very good. This service is very bad! As slow as they were we should have gotten excellent service, we did not get it. He never asked how everything was and he seemed like he was a little confused about the job. I noted bartenders standing and 2-3 others (maybe mangers?) who just stood around, a good manager, delivers food drinks etc when a waiter is busy, not stand around. Even tho I have went many times here, I doubt I will return. They are in hospitality business and need to remember who pays their salary, the customer does.

Our evening dinner at Switch was just what we were looking for on a cold rainy day in February. The menu had many "comfort food" choices to satisfy the three of us and the service was attentive. We especially loved the billing process which automatically itemized each of our orders with subtotals so the bill would have been easy to split.

When we arrived at restaurant, it was "closed for a private party", even though we had reservations! Hostess claimed she had tried to call me but was a wrong number in Open Table. When she looked it up and showed me, phone number was correct. Offered to seat us on patio (it was 48 degrees and chance of rain), and since we were meeting friends, we had no choice. Kudos to the dishwasher who spent about 30 minutes getting the heaters lit.

Once we were seated, staff was great. They comped our drinks. Food was basic but delicious. Rain held off.


After the meal, we all agreed, snafu was best thing that could have happened to us, as inside the restaurant it was so noisy, we would have never been able to talk to each other!

The food, service, decor, seating were all very good. My wife and I brought four friends there. It was their first visit. We spent a couple of hours there. They all said how much they enjoyed it. The noise level was much lower than many restaurants. We were able to have conversation all along our table. I would highly recommend Switch.

Food and atmosphere was great. Seems like wait staff was a little bit stretched and while our waitress was very good, she left a lot to desire when it came to friendliness. Can't say her lack of friendliness was due to being stretched because the waitress serving the table next to ours was very friendly. That being said, we won't hesitate to return. Don't need to be besties with my wait staff.

Our experience at Switch was OK. The atmosphere is comfortable and semi-casual. The service was very good. And the prices are reasonable. This is most definitely "comfort food" dining - with lots of rich, fried and bacon laced dishes. As a pescatarian, I was disappointed at the lack of healthier options, other than salad (although, the chef was willing to make adjustments). If rich, bacon based food is your thing... go for it. I would personally prefer healthier, lighter fare.

The Brie appetizer was great. We enjoyed all of the food. Our server was out there a little bit. There was a young female and a manager type woman who helped us get our food and refreshed our drinks when our server was elsewhere. I enjoyed this restaurant and if I lived close by I would visit regularly. I thought the prices fairly priced and we all had a good meal.

Wow, this place is great. Had the fried chicken appetizer, it was wonderful. My sandwich with the chicken and onion jam couldn't be better. I had the grits for my side and being from the south I'm always worried about grits in Phoenix but they were fantastic. Definitely going to go back!

Have had lunch and dinner here before, but this was our first time having brunch. Mac and cheese with bacon, breakfast burrito, and yummy French Toast were our selections and they were incredibly delicious. The coffee is fantastic and my cup was always at least half filled. My companions enjoyed their carafes of Bloody Marys. The service was impeccable. This restaurant does everything right.

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!
