The Herb Box is the place for food that meets our perfect gathering for great food and comfortable seating atmosphere. Top on our list.
The food and ambiance was great. The only problem was it was so cold in the restaurant!!! We didn’t sit outside because the breeze was cool that day. They had the doors open but they also had the air conditioning on high. We asked several times if there was something they could do. We finally asked if the A/C could be turned off. By the time we left, it was finally feeling better.
Great food, friendly server, beautiful location. Will be going there again
This was our first time at the Herb Box. Our server was fantastic. She provided great recommendations (loved the passion fruit tea). Our lunches were tasty fresh and filling. Will return.
The food was wonderful and our waiter was awesome!
We have been here a few times and it was very disappointing as far as the service was concerned. Our entrees never arrived and one of the main courses arrived way ahead of the others which was then kept warm - just not the same.
Has this place changed hands? Not at all as good as it has been in the past
The food was amazing but our server seemed to have too many tables so it took a long time to get water refills, plates cleared, the check, etc. She was a lovely server but the service was slow. The sweet potato enchiladas were outstanding!
We got there for our Easter brunch right when they opened at 9am. Food was really good and although our table wasn’t on the better part of the tree covered balcony, it was early enough not to need the shade so it was still nice. The server was very welcoming and friendly, though a bit forgetful. We had to wait for silverware after food was served and ask 3 times for butter for my daughter’s toast which surprisingly came unbuttered since the menu calls it “buttered whole grain toast”. The bakery/coffee shop downstairs was very cute too. I would attribute some of the slowness to it being Easter morning. We would return possibly...though there are so many places to have brunch I’m not certain!
Excellent food and service. Some of the best I’ve
Had in the Phoenix area.
We dined at The Herb Box twice while we were in Scottsdale on vacation. Both meals were excellent. One of our party has Celiac and our servers were knowledgeable and caring. The brunch dishes were superb in flavor and presentation. The Bloody Marys were perfect. All-in-all, we plan to return whenever we can.
Well appointed restaurant with a variety of items on the menu. We liked it so much we returned for dinner. The lunch was better. We had a lentil, quinoa salad with pickled grapes, charred brussels sprouts, roasted cauliflower with two sauces that were amazing. My friend and I could not stop eating it. For dinner I had a carne asada salad that was rather unexciting. But, overall it was still good.
However, my friend had short rib enchiladas for dinner that were very tasty and she raved about them.
Wonderful shrimp salad with beautiful outdoor seating
Love the smoked salmon hash; great brunch selection; love the decor and location at SouthBridge.
My mother wanted to host a very small baby sprinkle for me. There were just 4 of us. My mother, my mother in law, a very good family friend, and myself. From the moment we got there we felt like we were going to be forgotten about and "too much trouble." We shouldn't have been a burden since we ordered 3 sangrias, an appetizer, and each of the 4 of us ordered full sized entrees. Some of the ladies ordered soft drinks as well (iced tea). The point is...it wasn't like we were sitting there eating hummus and water. Our waiter was short with us and we never felt like he wanted to be serving us. In fact, towards the end he said he was off and would be transferring us to another waiter. We thought that was normal and ok with us because how much worse could it get? Well he came back and said "Literally, no one else can take you so I guess I'm here until you're done..." Gee way to make us feel welcome! We ordered dessert and you could almost hear an audible 'sigh' when we did. All in all if we want a nice lunch with similar ambiance....I'll just head across the way to Olive and Ivy.
We had a reservation. After standing in line for 12 or so minutes while the hostess came and went, we finally got to the front of the line and she left again, I guess to find us a table. After a long time (place was almost empty) she came back and took us to a table where 2 tables for 2 were pushed together with 1 on each end and one in the middle on the seam of the 2 tables. There were 3 of us but that was such an odd way/place to seat us. We were outside as requested but odd and the music was way too loud for the patio. When finally seated service and food was good. Alert>>>>>> get your hostess oriented or have 2 of them!!
Food amazing well presented Highly recommend
It was just ok. I had heard a lot of good things. Maybe they were having an off day.
Great red velvet pancakes. Worth a special trip from MN.
We enjoyed our Sunday breakfast/brunch at the Herb Box. The food was delicious, our mimosas were huge, and the service was outstanding.
Yes yes yes! I absolutely love the Vegan Nosh board! The kale Pakora was my favorite thing hands down. The Korean cauliflower was a close second with the Brussel sprouts. The roasted edamame was still delicious and classic. The sweet potato tacos were an amazing entree. I recommend without cheese and creme. Try the gluten free or vegan aioli instead better flavor palate.
Great place to meet a friend for lunch. Friendly efficient service.
We were there for Sunday Brunch and found everything to be great. Only complaint is service was a bit slow but not bad. I truly enjoyed the brunch and atmosphere.
The food was amazing also the ambiance the staff a perfect lunch will be back!
One of the best places to enjoy people with very interesting food. Lively, vibrant, wonderfully unpredictable in a very good way.
Always good especially on a beautiful day outside. Great desserts. Fresh salads.
After being seated it was almost 15 min before anyone came to our table offering water or to take an order. Once our order was taken our food was delivered promptly and was correct. It was clear that there was going to be another considerable delay in picking up our credit card at the end but fortunately we had enough cash and got out without further delay. Wouldn’t have been a major issue for a leisurely dinner but not acceptable for a weekday lunch where time is of the essence. Wouldn’t recommend this spot if you are pressed for time. The restaurant was busy but far from full at the time of our visit.
It is always a safe bet to take out of town guest, for lunch. It is always good and healthy choices. A walk by the canal and in to old town is the perfect dessert.
My girlfriends lunch was perfect at The Herb Box. Great Food. Excellent Service. Cool vibe. Nice ambience. Creative offerings. One of my dependable ‘Go to’ restaurants in Scottsdale for the past decade!!
A very nice menu, good taste, good service, a happy experience
We loved the whole experience. Great services excellent cocktail selections and many choices for all diners.
We had a great, affordable brunch in a lovely outdoor setting. All and all, an enjoyable meal.
We never got a server. We waited 20 mins. All the tables were waiting for the servers. We saw one table all were done eating before one girl even got her meal. We left.
Great setting, we wanted it to be great but wow, terrible service. Waitress was inattentive, disappeared for 20 minutes at a time. We asked for items and they would just not bring them. The table next to us was complaining to them about bad service as well plus a table of 3 ladies left after 15 minutes without an approach. They just walked out! Food was ok, not remarkable.
Excellent, all around. Very impressed.
Food was outstanding. Fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. Vegan, and vegetarian options as well so everyone was happy.
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.
Great service, great food, great cocktails, amazing triple chocolate. We were 2 people, there for my birthday which was great, but from what we saw it looks like a good place for larger groups as well. Reservation recommended.
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.
