We were 10 minutes early for our reservation, waited to be seated, received menus. Much had changed since last at previous location. No waiter or server came to greet us or even say hello, or ask about drinks. Waited about 35 minutes and walked out --- never to return again!!!!!!!!

The Thai ribs were flavorless. I think they had been boiled prior to saucing and slight grilling. The macaroni and cheese served with the ribs was Luke warm and did not taste cooked. The tomato artichoke soup special was fabulous! The restaurant was so noisy we found it hard to talk. My elderly mother couldn’t hear anything. Overall, I would not go back. I was so disappointed because in the past I had heard good things about the restaurant.

Our poor waitress was very busy but served us well. Food was weird but quite good. The ladies at the table loved it. The boys were looking for anything close to chicken fingers. They made us try it and it was pretty good. Not chicken fingers good. But good. I did have the salmon crab cakes which were awesome.

Unfortunately, we did not enjoy our New Years Eve dinner here. Everything was described as phenomenal. The burger was dry & hard. They charged us $5 to cut it in half. It was supposed to have Brie in it, but it appeared just like a light coating of mayo.
Their famed Brussels were so greasy my husband wouldn’t eat them.
Perhaps it was an off night, but we were highly disappointed.

Our server was helpful and efficient. We started off with two orders of the crispy brussels sprouts, yum! Three of us had the blackened steak, done to perfection and delicious. The other two had salads, one with steak...both loved them. We will be back when we are in the “Old Town” area.

I suggested the Herb Box to enjoy a last dinner out with my friends visiting from Australia. It was a Tuesday and the restaurant was not busy yet our service was not exceptional and all of our food arrived luke warm. It was disappointing and with all our restaurant options in old town Scottsdale I felt horribly responsible for the restaurant selection.

Group dinner. New location threw me off but still pleasant, comfortable and not too bad on the noise level. Food for all parties was excellent, serving size very good and prices absolutely reasonable. One of my favorite spots.

Love the new location and look!
Herb Box continues to be one of my favorite, go-to restaurants.
We’re snowbirds and I “dream about” the Vegan Nosh. Disappointed that the edamame has disappeared from the mix but I still love the crispy kale and crispy Brussels sprouts.The bar-menu pizza was yummy.

Initial wait for service was quite long. Drink menus printed so small they are barely legible. Burned out light bulbs on the patio make reading any menu at night problematic. Bar ran out of 2 ingredients needed to make the cocktails we were drinking. One hamburger cooked so well it was like a tire. Asked for a redo and it took so long to remake everyone else at the table was done with their meal. Food was tasty but not hot. Maybe it was an off night for The Herb Box - I hope so - I have had enjoyable meals in their other locations.

My wife and I went for dinner last night and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was quite good and fell into the "healthy-ish" category. Not crazy healthy (it tasted good). The chicken was excellent. Yes! Really! The service was also good. My only complaint is the parking. Get there early as parking is not plentiful, especially a Saturday night. I parked at the Mall next to Nordstrom. The walk was okay.

Overall experience was good, but not great. We sat inside and music was too loud for conversation. We asked if it could be turned down but they didn’t. Probably was better outside. Waiter was attentive in the beginning but then got several more tables and seemed a bit too busy. He left trash sitting on our table until I asked another young man to take it. Food was good. We really enjoyed the Gorgonzola flat bread pizza. Jasmine iced tea was excellent.

Although confirmed on Open Table, the Herb Box didn't have a record of our reservation. The salmon was very thin and dried out. The Herb Box's new location does not have the same degree of elegance as before.

The Herb Box moved from the canal location to an interior street location. back patio now faces a few small offices. Ambiance is terrible and still the same soiled cushions from their old location. A shame as food is good.

We love the brunch here! Inside can be loud, the out door patio is great and quieter. Really cute decor and excellent food. We have had the French toast and buckwheat pancakes both delicious sweet breakfast options, they both come with bacon which is nice, most brunch places charge extra to add a protein but it cones standard here. I Always get the steak and eggs it’s delicious too. Five dollar mimosas and bloody Mary’s on the weekend brunch which is awesome. Never have had a bad meal here or at the old location, definitely recommend.

We sat outside. Was a little chilly and it had rained earlier - cushions and tables were damp so took a while to get comfortable. I worry restaurant hasn’t been busy since it moved to new location. Food is unbelievably good - butternut squash enchiladas can’t be beat!
