We dined at the Herb Box last Saturday and sat on the patio. The patio furniture was dingy and in need of maintenance. The cushions looked well past their prime and the one I sat on had a cigarette burn on it. The tables were set in strange places inside and out so that the servers didn't have a lot of space to pass. We moved our table twice (because there was plenty of room to move it), , first so we didn't bump into the table next to us, and again so that the servers would stop bumping into my friend's chair. We just slid it over to where there was more space but it was odd that it was placed in the position it was. Same thing when we went inside to use the ladies room. There was a long tall decorative table in the middle of the restaurant and the dining tables were so close to it that you had to squeeze by in order to not bump into the diners at the nearby tables. I would have hated to be sitting at one of those tables. Lastly, the food was inconsistent. Out of the 4 of us, one person loved their entire meal (black and blue salad), one person had the trout with waffles. The trout was excellent but the waffles were not. One person chose the sliders on the appetizer menu and found them to be "just OK". I had the short rib enchiladas and they were lukewarm, and needed salsa to give them some better flavor. They were a little bland. Overall, this was our first time at the Herb Box and we have no intention on returning.

This was our first time in the new location. We brought a couple of friends who were visiting. We sat outside on the patio with heaters on. The ambience was very festive, the service was great and the food and drinks were delicious. We loved the blackberry mojitos. We will definitely be back!

Carnivores and Vegans eating together with so many options, it's a match made in heaven. I even had my carnivore friends stealing food from my vegan nosh plate! Vegetables are wonderfully cooked seasoned so nothing is bland. The hummus has a kick to it, so beware if you have a mild palette. Our table of 5 ladies went through 2 plates of the brussel sprouts and we could have easily ordered another one! Our waitress was really nice, and was very attentive when drinks were low, but let us ladies talk and she really could feel the vibe when we needed something else. The hostess was very kind when another woman at a different table asked to move away from the view of the kitchen. The woman was very rude to the staff, but they handled it well. (I peaked at the view, and it's not bad. If she would just focus on talking to her friends she would have been fine, but I guess the world revolves around her!) We will definitely be back, and maybe I'll ask for the table with the kitchen view!

Haven't been to the Herb Box - Old Town for a while and was delighted with the new location! Great looking and a bit more private than the old one. The food was as delicious as I remembered. There are lots of tempting options and it was hard to choose. The sweet potato chips were especially delish! The service was good too.

The visit was on a Saturday late morning. The outside patio was full but very few inside diners. The hostess originally took us to a table nearest the entry and I asked for a different table and then was taken to a table further away. Sat down and realized the table was next to the restrooms. Noticed that there were two tables for two immediately nearby and nestled against the outside glass walls. Got up and moved. Waited for an uncomfortably long time and asked a buser to find out who our server was. No server showed up. Went up to the hostess station asking for our server. No server shows up but the hostess did bring water glasses to our table. After another uncomfortably long time, a server appeared and my date ordered an expresso. The expresso arrived and poorly prepared. Finally another server who usually worked at the DC Ranch came to the table and she was terrific - very professional, personable and accommodating. The food was good but nonetheless a very unfortunate experience.

We had a terrific meal. The menu is very interesting and health conscious. My wife and I both have food allergies (one is gluten free, the other vegan). The menu was very clear and has a number of options. Kayla, our server, did a great job guiding us through our choices. She was a delight. The appetizers and small pates in particular were tasty--get the Crisp Brussel Sprout Chips, it is unbelievably good. We almost ordered another plate for desert. Similarly, the green-apple Jicama slaw was wonderful.

The Herb Box has never disappointed me, but on the other hand has never surprised me with super service or food. I have come to expect good service and meal offerings. Since I got what I expected, this was an average visit to the restaurant. You will not be disappointed either I suspect.

I never had any problem going to herb box I love this place but the girl who sit us at our table was super rude and she was not nice at all. We asked to be moved because it was really cold and we were just to close to the door . This same girl helped with the high chair she practically dumped the chair and didn’t even said sorry in my opinion if she is the person who welcomes people she was way to rude Maibe you need to change her. Thank God our waiter was super nice and food was good because on the contrary I would have left.
I was there on Tuesday at 1:15 PM and my Name is Jennifer B

The food was delicious; do not pass up the Brussel Sprouts Chips! The stuffed pork loin was wonderful, as was the grilled steak. The wince service was a bit rough...we ordered a bottle and the server brought one bottle to the table. In uncorking it, she broke the cork and couldn't get the remainder out. When she brought the second bottle and successfully extracted the cork, she poured us glasses, neglecting the tasting step. When se refilled our glasses, she spilled wine down the side of one of our glasses and never came back to clean up.

I’ve always been a fan of The Herb Box, but I adore the new location. Food and cocktails are always sensational. My only slight complaint? The desserts are often a miss. But, with great friends, food and drink? You can’t go wrong. This is a must keep on everyone’s Sunday brunch list.

FANTASTIC food! Great staff, very friendly, however we were sat at an extremely wobbly table, we were able to fix with a few napkins. It was on the louder side, felt as if I was yelling across the table to talk to my dinner guests. Overall great time.

In their new location I like the fact that there is more outdoor seating. The food choices are tasty and basically healthy as well so it's a win-win. The atmosphere is laid back and in the outdoor courtyard it was easy to hold a conversation.
