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.

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.

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!
