We were seated outside but seemed to be our waitperson’s only outside table. We were basically forgotten then when our food finally came the soup and entree arrived at the same time. Ate the soup while it was hot but the the entrees were cold. Then we were forgotten again and waited super long for the check. Wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

Overall this place would great. I would come back. It was a busy night so we understood the slow service. Food was excellent and I highly recommend the cherry chocolate old fashioned!! We had short rib tacos to share. Excellent. And we all had the rosemary grilled steak and shared an apple cinnamon roll cheesecake. My ONLY complaint about the food was 2 of our 4 plates had ice cold celery root purée.

Service was extremely slow which is unusual for this restaurant. Our food took almost 1 hour to be delivered to our table. Totally understand that the kitchen gets busy, but no one made an effort to explain why our meals were so delayed.

I have never had a bad meal here and I am pretty picky! Gluten-free and dairy-free no problem for them. So many options! Love the pakoras and brussel chips. The salmon and vegan enchiladas were both delicious! Until next time, Herb Box!

It is extremely noisy inside - so that conversation is difficult. Their chairs do not slide easily. They should add felt.

Superb dining experience with out of town friends. Our serve was the perfect combination of taking good care of our needs but not hovering. The Happy Hour wine and beer prices were awesome. We ordered dinner entrees of the shrimp, the salmon, the ribs and everything was well prepared and delicious. It's become our go to place in Old Town Scottsdale.

Food was good though we noticed most of the dishes had some sweet taste, i.e. Lentil Meatballs and burger with Jicama/apple slaw. Very tasty dishes and salads.

Made a reservation and was told I didn't have one. Eventually the reservation was found. Was seated and service was very sluggish. No set-ups and only received a napkin and silverware after I asked twice. Water arrived in plastic to go cups as they ran out of clean glasses. We ordered wine. The red a friend ordered was out so he picked another wine. Took forever for our server to come back and let us know and then for us to get our drinks. Ordered dinner and it had to be a solid 30 minutes or more before our arrived. I ordered the short rib enchiladas which tasted good, but we're somewhat cold. I had to send it back which took a while. I would have liked to eat my side dish while that heated up, but I wasn't offered that option. Service was just off the entire night from the moment we checked in.

Really enjoyed our dinner on the patio at The Herb Box. Busy weekend at Canal Convergence, so our dinner here was a nice enjoyable break from the crowd. Food was tasty and our wine was perfect. We’ll be back soon!

We sat outdoors on the patio on a beautiful Arizona evening. Our waiter Drew was excellent - very friendly and
professional. The food items from the happy hour was unique and delicious! We look forward to returning to the Herb Box.

We ordered trout, salmon and Thai ribs. All were very good. Unfortunately, after being seated for our reservation, we waited 30 minutes for our drinks and 90 minutes for our dinners. Server (and eventually management) attentiveness was poor.

The food was good but not great. Value for money was fine. I had the short rib enchiladas and the portion was generous. Husband had the Rosemary Grilled Steak. There was so much sauce with a lot of flavor that he couldn't actually taste the meat. Service was poor. Maybe the bartender was super busy but how do you get straight Scotch wrong? It came sort of chilled with bubbles & something else in it. Had to ask for water and the second glass of wine arrived so late we refused it. The server said, "I'll pay for it, I'll take it off your bill." Now who is going to enjoy a glass of wine paid for by their server? We declined and went home. The unfortunate thing is that we were there to test out the restaurant for a big corporate event which we will sadly not be having at the Herb Box.

Very disappointing lunch at Herb Box. I've been there quite a few times, and always found out it to be delicious. This time, however, our salads were so spicy they were inedible, and loaded with red onion. The promised avocado was AWOL. We mentioned it to the server, and she did offer to replace, but by that time we needed to get to our movie. The manager came over, but no one offered to comp our meals, or just give us a coupon for next time. Not stellar customer service in my opinion! They could have done something, such as pour us another mimosa. Not sure I'd go back with all the better restaurant choices in our city.
