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.
Good food, great ambiance, great service.
Outdoor dining was lovely, nice ambiance, enjoyed the food and able to have a nice conversation with friends.
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!
Everything is the best here and even though we didn't order the weather, it was perfect. One of the things that makes The Herb Box special is its consistency, always excellent.
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.
I had the lentil cauliflower bowl and it was delishious! The patio is beautiful and nicely shaded with misters.
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.
Food was amazing. Will come back next time we are in town.
Food was amazing. Great outdoor seating. Service was great. Get the potatoes!!!!
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.
My beautiful sisters birthday
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!
Live music was great on Saturday night! Menu was unique and refreshing.

always love Herb Box. the menu is different and the patio is great
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.
