Reservation was for outdoor seating… it was confirmed but when we arrived it was said that all outdoor seating was reserved and we would not be seated outdoors. Food was great but loud atmosphere indoors ruined the experience. When I book outdoor seating and it is confirmed that is what I expect! Get your act together Herb Box

out of town visitors. We really loved this place. Sat outside on patio. Shaded and misted for the heat. Was perfect. Cocktails were great. Food and service were excellent. Whitney was our server on her second week and did a great job. Definitely would recommend.

Joshua was great! Attentive, friendly, fabulous service. Started with a pear, Gorgonzola flat bread appetizer with a pesto base. Amalgam of flavors with soft and crisp textures. The star was chilequiles verde. Tender, flavorful short rib in a savory sauce, crunchy tortilla chips beneath, topped with pickled onion and eggs. Not hot spicy so some heat loving connoisseurs may need to add hot sauce. The peach bourbon, ginger French toast with an anglaise sauce for dessert was a perfect amount shared among 4 people. Will definitely return!

Usually eat at the Herb box on Thompson peak and have steak salad. Had the steak salad here and it was awful. The steak was good but came next to a pile of dry lettuce. Recommend it to my friend a d felt bad because it was so plain.

My best meal in Scottsdale! I had the Blackened Shrimp Baja -- a delicious bowl made with quinoa. My companions were equally pleased with their meals. Good wine and good vibes. On a Tuesday evening, but restaurant was less than half full. No one was eating inside. Will definitely return the next time I'm in Scottsdale.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
