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.

It was AWFUL!
It took 25 minutes to get
my husbands capuchino
and it was terrible.
We waited for our meal for
45 minuets. The eggs were
cold and sprinkled with feta
cheese instead of being cooked
with feta. The toast was wet
and soggy. We asked to see the
manager and the waitress said
that the manager was too busy
working kitchen.
We will never come back!!!!!

They moved from the waterfront area to a smaller location. The food seems to have changed. My salad was not good as it had a canola oil flavor and one of my friends sent her dish back as it tasted moldy. Will not return.

Went there on a double date recently. I love the crispy brussel sprouts and actually had an order of that and the edamame for my dinner! Both were perfect and so crispy! Brussels were a little salty.. next time I’ll ask them to go light on the salt but everything was good! Hubs had the farmhouse bowl with chicken and liked it too!

I have been there two weeks in a row for lunch, w/ different friends; both times extremely noisy. Also, we had the same male server each time & while the guy was nice he was clueless; both times service was slow; we always had to catch him to place our order, to ask for drink refills, the check, etc. He never checked back on us either time. The place seems to be understaffed for how busy it is. Very disappointing on noise level & lackluster service.

How remarkably disappointing! I ordered a steak medium-rare and it arrived well-done. While waiting for the new steak to arrive of course the meals of my companions grew cold. The new steak arrived and was also over cooked. The other two entree's were average at best. The "manager" offered to pay for my cocktail and to buy us one dessert. We chose not to have a dessert due to their unappetizing descriptions. How disappointing that manager chose such a pitiful response for an expensive meal. The Herb Box in downtown Scottsdale has moved and the new location lacks the warmth and beautiful outdoor ambiance that the previous location had. Sadly this will be last time dining at this restaurant.

This is my favorite restaurant. Been there numerous times and have never been disappointed. From my server having the bar make a special handcrafted drink off the menu to always excellent food--this place is one to go. My last visit, I took my parents and my mom ordered their black peppered steak and now my mom says that she will never have steak again. I recommend the vegan nosh board even if you arent a vegan because it's that good.

We have been here multiple times and have always had a good experience, this time the service was terrible and the food was very slow. I normally don’t give bad reviews because it can ruin the reputation of a restaurant, but something is off and I would like to make sure whoever owns this place does a full review of what this restaurant has been in the past. What has changed? Food was ok, but the service was awful. I never give less that 20% tip but did this time.

I loved Herb Box at its former location -- the NOISE LEVEL is off the charts in the new location, and we could barely hear each other. I would never go here again for a lunch meeting. Might be okay for happy hour, but not if you want to have a conversation.

Always enjoyed The Herb Box in the old river walk location. Decided to check out the new place for dinner and were very disappointed.
The menu is a little limited but creative. The atmosphere and noise level left us saying we probably would not return.
So sorry to lose a place we used to love.

Brunch was tasty! The noise was a lot especially for the the number of customers. It was not crowed! Good place to take kids because they will not disturb anyone due to the noise level.
We had a lovely sever who was attentive but not over bearing. My French toast was very good and my husband’s pancakes were good as well.
Will go back when the weather is cooler to be seated outside where noise will not be an issue.
Cute restaurant with a unique interior!

I booked a reservation online to the Herb Box. When I showed up with my friend there was nobody there. I even called the restaurant to see if I missed something and no one picked up. I ended up going to Citizens Public House instead.

If your restaurant is not open, please do not offer times to book on Open Table. I came from San Francisco hoping to visit this restaurant as I knew it had been good before but this was an utter disappointment.
