Food was decent. Some dishes came out room temp/not warm. Majority of workers were not wearing masks.
Took a friend here for her birthday and was absolutely disappointed.. our server was terrible from the start. She didn’t present and pour our wine correctly, forgot to ring in our shared plate, had no recommendations for the food and when I asked for suggestions or if there was a special she responded with everything is special and couldn’t make any suggestions . I had to ask for water service multiple times.
We sat outside in the patio which was nice with the misters until they turned them off and one of the nozzles kept dripping on my head. The music was a little loud because a speaker was over my head and it was hard to hear.
Regarding the food...it was less than amazing. We tried ordering the cauliflower shared plate and they were out so we opted to order something else...can’t remember because we never received it. My entree was just okay...they pan friend my salmon like it was a piece of fried chicken. I did ask for the salmon to be cooked through but I wasn’t expecting it to be fried and crunchy.
I don’t usually leave reviews but had to forewarn...dont waste your time or money here. There are multiple restaurants nearby that offer better quality of service and food.
We always have a delicious meal at this restaurant. The cauliflower appetizer and Brussels sprout chips are great as are all the entree’s. You just cannot go wrong here!
Hi Lesley - We can't get enough of the Korean Fried Cauliflower & Crisp Brussels Sprout Chips too!! Thank you for being a loyal Herb Box patron and sharing about your experience with us! We appreciate it! See you again soon!
The cauliflower appetizer was
Our Korean Fried Cauliflower is out of this world, right?! And it's gluten free & vegan! Can't get much better than that!
Very helpful staff, and the food was delicious and over generous.
We had a great meal and loved the atmosphere of the restaurant we definitely will be going back.
Thank you for sharing about your experience! So glad you enjoyed everything, see you again soon!
Long wait despite reservation
Rude at entrance
Maskless staff during a pandemic. Sat at my table for 15 minutes without being greeted or asked for a drink. I had to wave down staff to be acknowledged.
Very disappointing! I made a reservation about a week in advance. I asked for a quiet outdoor table. When I got there they said they couldn’t honor the reservation and then proceeded to make me wait over 30 minutes for an outdoor table. While waiting, I ordered a margarita. It was horribly sour. Then, finally a table was ready, but was it quiet? Nope! They sat us right by the band.
The food was good but the service was lousy. Won’t be going back again.
Server was fine, but not helpful recommending food for someone with garlic and onion intolerance. Sitting on patio with misters on was very nice. We arrived just before Happy Hour and we’re surprised no wine was on the list. Oh, well...
Angelina made our experience perfect! The food was delish and her service even better. We also enjoyed desserts on this visit and would highly recommend.
Thank you for the kind words! So glad the food, service, & atmosphere were PERFECT during your visit! See you again soon!
Best burger in town
Thanks, Phil! We never get tired of our burger, either! See you again!
Met a friend for lunch on the patio. Tables seemed a bit close in the time of a pandemic. Our server was good. My roasted corn and goat cheese flatbread was just okay. The ingredients were pretty skimpy with maybe 3 or 4 bits of bacon on top. The Brussels sprouts "chips" that we shared were outstanding though. Just the right hint of spice. Overall, I was pretty disappointed in the experience.
Ordered the Pear & Gorgonzola Flatbread. VERY DISAPPOINTING! Underwhelming! Overall flavor was ok, but had to look with a microscope to find the VERY FEW SLIVERS of pear!
The food and service was top notch.
Hi! Wow, thank you so much for the kind words! We love to hear feedback like this! See you again soon!
this place has it all. I always go to the patio as it has a great atmosphere. The food is always consistently excellent, well portioned and interesting. I love the mixed drinks and sample a new one most times. The service could not be better. The wait staff is personable and helpful. I keep going back.

Great food, lovely outside area and excellent service!
The Herb Box is a long time favorite. The food is fresh and flavorful. Brunch was good... but I think it’s better for lunch and dinner. The brunch choices are not as varied as other places but what is offered is quite good. Sitting on the patio is delightful. The service was a little slow but no big deal.
Hi Lesley - Thank you for taking the time to share about your brunch experience with us! We appreciate you providing this feedback so we can make adjustments to prevent issues like these from happening again in the future. Thank you for being a loyal patron of The Herb Box and we look forward to seeing you again!

Hi Mary, so glad you enjoyed everything during your visit! See you again!
Met for brunch to celebrate my friend's birthday. It was lovely. Outside patio was beautiful. Our server Andy was on top if it. The restaurant presented my friend with a gluten free brownie. Delicious! You will have a great meal & attentive service.
Thank you for the kind words! We love hearing that the food, service, & ambiance were memorable for our guests! Thank you for celebrating the special day with us, see you again soon!
Visiting Scottsdale had some dietary restrictions - dairy free and gluten sensitive and loved our meal. Sat outside. Had the vegan nosh board and an appetizer - it was awesome.
Thank you for sharing about your experience with us! We proudly offer a unique menu with featured menu items that accommodate various dietary restrictions! Thank you for your feedback!
the food was very good and the outdoor seating was nice. the waitress was more interested in comparing tattoos with a lady that was seated across from us. that table also got there order way before us, even though we were there before them.the tables were mesh topped and there was food stuck in the mesh top,...not pleasant to see. we asked for them to be cleaned,....seemed a chore for the waitress.
not great. ran out of most food we wanted. served us dinner way too quickly
From the get go we should have left ... we arrived just before our reservation and they said our table wasn't quite ready. After waiting about 20 minutes they took us to our table. Our first waiter was quite nice and took our drink order in a timely manner. Then another waitress came back to say she was taking over for him and that our drinks were on their way. Did we want to order dinner? We said we would like to wait for our drinks. About ten minutes later she brought our drinks. I ordered a Grey Goose martini dry ... absolutely no Vermouth. My drink arrived in a rocks glass because they had run out of martini glasses and it had vermouth in it. Thus, I sent it back and she came back to tell me they had run out of Grey Goose. I reordered my drink and waited another 10 to 15 minutes for it to arrive. In the meantime we ordered a fried kale appetizer which was quite good. We finally ordered our dinner. My steak salad was awful; steak was tough and inedible. as was my salad. My husband's fried chicken was great. Our server at least 5 times said she was going to bring water for our dog; we never did see it. He drank out of one of our glasses. I have no clue if our waitress was having an off night or the kitchen, but we won't be going back. It's so sad as the atmosphere was lovely and they had a wonderful patio with music.
This is the second time I've been here in about 2 weeks and although the food is great. Appetizers are set down followed then by plates and silverware. Order of service needs to be rethought. This visit the dessert case was very dusty and bathrooms looked rough.
I had the short rib enchiladas and my husband had the grapefruit salmon. Both were delicious. A nice quiet table on the patio with misters that turned off when the sun went down.
Great choices during your visit with us! So happy you enjoyed everything!
Waitress forgot us multiple times. Never checked if we needed anything, couldn’t get her attention. Forgot to bring part of an appetizer and never got the chance to even remind her for it until she brought the main course. Then she forgot to bring a drink ordered. Had to physically get up, walk over to the bar 20 minutes after the drink was ordered to ask for the drink directly from the bartender. Even after that, the drink still didn’t come for another 15 minutes after that, and only after I walked up to the bar again myself a second time. The bartender seemed frustrated with the waitress, but also made absolutely no attempt whatsoever to get the drink made in any timely fashion even knowing how long we had been waiting. Food was delicious. Wait staff and bartender were terrible. Management is to blame in this as well, as no manager seemed present and restaurant seemed understaffed and not able to keep up with the number of tables/orders. This was my first time back to this restaurant since Covid and out for a date night with my husband. Left completely frustrated and disappointed.
Love this place. Happy hour food and drinks Are amazing. Service is always outstanding.
Great food and a nice courtyard. Two servers had not shown up that day so the service was very sketchy.

Hi John! Thank you for sharing about your experience with us, we appreciate your honest feedback!
Great food (note portions are large), ambiance and service. We had dinner outside and everything we ordered was delish... we especially liked the short rib tacos, mac and cheese and cauliflower appetizer. We sat on the patio for dinner and the live acoustic music made the night even more enjoyable. Well done and highly recommended!
Wow, thank you so much for the kind words! Great choices for dinner! We love to have local artists perform on weekends, so glad you enjoyed your time with us! See you again!
Food was great, service spotting despite restaurant being just 50% capacity at lunch on a Friday.
