The Herb Box - Old Town Ratings and Reviews
Nice dinner but no mention from any of the staff that it was Valentines Day or any special Valentines Day treats. I had the salmon dish which I have had before but this time, it didn’t seem like there were as many veggies (green beans) and fruit garnish with it.
We waited over 10 minutes before we had to ask for a server to come to our table. The menu is boring, we thought the food would make up for the poor service but that was disappointing too. They brought three dishes out and forgot about the 4th person. Then to top it off, we were over charged for one of the dishes. So many other restaurants in the area, check them out before coming here.
We have been to the Herb box many times and have never been disappointed. We took some company to dinner and had the complete opposite experience. Absolutely terrible service from our waiter. He seemed to avoid his tables, and hard to get his attention. We had a nut allergy at our table, and after we ordered, before I could get a word out, he turned and walked away. Next opportunity, I got his attention and told him.. his response was.. can he eat cross contaminated food... ahh no.. So then he said rudely, well its going to take longer to get your food. After that, he dropped off our meals and didn’t say a word. Simply disappointing, maybe our waiter Beau was having a bad night or needs training in customer service..Unfortunely, We won’t be back.
Food was great, good server but service seemed slow particularly considering the restaurant did not appear to be really busy. Perhaps they were short wait staff tonight. Our server listened to a concern we had and dealt with it without us having to ask for anything. We really appreciated her attention.
Lovely brunch on the patio. Our kids loved the red velvet pancakes. We enjoyed the cilantro lime crab dip, eggs and lentil bowl. The passion fruit iced tea is a great complement to the food too. Excellent service from Sadie (I think that's her name - she was friendly, helpful, and attentive.)
Great little spot! Ate here with my husband and 8 year old last night for dinner. Not a "kids place" at all..great for a date. We are gluten free and the kids menu is horrible for that even though the menu has lots of GF options. The manager was super accommodating for our daughter's gluten allergy and made her a bacon grilled cheese on GF bread with tomato bisque which was a HUGE hit! Props to them for being crafty and handling the situation well. Brussels sprouts chips are a MUST, even our non veggie eating kid loved them. The salmon was very good and the fig and goat cheese chicken was perfection. Maurice is a fantastic server. Very concerned about your enjoyment.
I will start my review by calling out what a beautiful restaurant this is. I have gone to the DC Ranch Herb Box for years but never to this downtown location. The outdoor seating space was superb. The service was great; the ambiance perfecto. The food, however, was disappointing. Herb Box, it is time to update your menu, please. Your menu is tired and off-trend. Almost everything on your menu has corn and/or wheat and/or dairy. My friend and I both asked for the different enchilada dishes with NO cheese, and we were told it couldn't be done. I opted for the bowl and was able to get it without cheese, but it had no flavor. What passed for flavor in the otherwise clean dish was french-fried onions - breaded. And there were too many sweet potatoes in the bowl. Please offer more clean, healthy dishes.
I had eaten at The Herb Box deli next door several years ago and the items I had tried were unique and delicious, so I suggested a special lunch at the restaurant next door so to share my past taste experience with a friend. What a disappointment. The service was very slow, and my eggs and sides "brunch" was lukewarm and tasteless. My meal was billed as eggs, tomatoes, and avocado which sounded like a filling and cohesive combination paired with ww toast. But 3 slices of a Roma tomato, one bite of avocado, a small, rubbery egg mound, and 1 piece of cold toast left a lot of empty space on the plate and left me wondering how they could possibly serve such a simple meal in this condition. To their credit, my friend had a plate of french toast which she said was good, so that might have been a better option.
Our experience with this restaurant was horrible. Over cooked and undercooked food. Slow service. When pointing out problems thecorrections were invariably worse.
How can one place screw up so many things?
The photo shows the completely burnt onion rings they brought to the table after they were told the original ones were stone cold. This is the kitchen staff flipping the bird at their customers. If it were my place, I’d fire them all.
Don’t bother going here. Scottsdale has too many good places to choose from
Great salmon dish. The ‘crack pie’ is quite tasty although I am sure it is not healthy but worth a splurge. Friendly service and environment. Wish they had more dairy free options. Some appetizers are vegetables but fried and with sugar sauce so great for getting friends to eat vegetables if they typically don’t like them.
Who knew kale and brussel sprouts could taste so good? It's a tricky combination to have food that is "healthy" but also makes the dinner feel satisfied. The Herb Box did both. Cannot WAIT to go back. On top of the amazing food, sitting outside with the patio heaters and looking at the twinkling lights along the waterfront was super romantic!!
I went to The Herb Box the day before to book an outdoor patio reservation for 5 adults and 2 children needing high chairs. When we arrived at our reservation time the following day, the reservation had been made for only 5 people and there was no "reserved table" for our party. Our host was able to find a table outside, but it was in a remote section of the restaurant. The food was great - service was just OK. Not sure if I would go back because of their reservation/no reservation issues.
I'm really not sure where to start. As visitors to scottsdale we looked at the reviews for this place and felt comfortable making dinner reservations. We arrived to find an almost empty restaurant on a weekend night. This should have been or first clue as to what was in store for us (especially, seeing as all the other restaurants around were packed). When seated we found that our waiter smelled like a cigarette and we had to repeat our orders to him several times. The food was no better than average. My steak was over done and my wife's short ribs were salty and a little tough ( how short ribs can be tough, I don't know). Drinks were good but expensive. I won't go back.
Our first time there but not our last. Everything about it was special. We noshed on Brussels sprouts chips followed by white bean chili soup glasses of wine, sandwiches and wraps. The service was perfect and the manager stopped by to tell us about some of their other dishes. Great neighborhood find.
Heard brunch was really good and was excited to try it. I had the kale, brie and granny smith omelette. The omelette was over cooked and the apple slices were slivered so thin it did not add any flavor. Good portion size, cheap bread for toast. Props to the server; she was excellent.
So booked this through OpenTable a month in advance since I was visiting the area and wanted to take the family out for a nice thanksgiving dinner. Had a reservation for 7pm. Turned up and the place was closed. No email ahead of time to point out that they made a mistake with allowing the booking to go through. Honestly this is unforgivable.
Had breakfast with 2 friends. It was just awful! I ordered French Toast that came pretty black and hard. I couldn't believe it was let out of the kitchen! One friend ordered scrambled eggs. There was no salt or pepper on table and it took about 5 minutes for waiter to bring and eggs were cold by the time it came. Other friend ordered pancakes which she said were good.
Service was so slow. Took forever to get coffee and then informed us they were out of cream. What restaurant lets itself run out of cream? (There is a grocery store with a few blocks of the restaurant)
Will never go back. Only saving grace was they just charged us for the coffee. But we left hungry.
