We visited for lunch and sat outside in the patio. The setting was very nice and its close to the river in Old Town Scottsdale. We have not been to the other location. My husband had the ribs and I had the shrimp salad. Both were very good. It was so good hat we went for New Year's Eve and had the prix fix 5 course meal. It was a southern menu of shrimp with grits, chicken and sweet potato waffles, a green salad with black eyed peas and a pink grapefruit cake. The menu was very good, however it took too long between courses for the food to come out. When we got the chicken and waffles it was an appetizer portion. That surprises us and so after 5 courses if small plates it was disappointing for New Year's Eve. I would go back die lunch and only a casual dinner. We are part time in Phoenix and live to try different restaurants and will come back to the Herb Box for lunch.

Went for lunch on the recommendation of my mother. The food was fresh and organic where possible, since it is the desert, that was somewhat appealing and refreshing. We both had salads, and all food times are marked gluten free or you can request certain items be made gluten free, as well as a number of vegetarian and vegan options. The wine list appeared extensive for a small quaint place, but we did not have wine. We did order dessert to go, with a couple gluten free options it was nice to have more than ice cream to choose from. There were several families with children there, but prices were comparable to Washington, D.C. where were from not Phoenix itself. As this is located near DC Ranch the prices were not unexpected. Food quality was worth the price. Sweet potato and plantain chips added a bit of fun flavor with the hummus appetizer.

What a great find in the middle of the afternoon! We were visiting from out of town and went to The Herb Box because of their gluten-free options. The decor is contemporary and the atmosphere is sophisticated. Sadie waited on us and gave us excellent service - helpful, warm, and very professional. I had the short rib soft tacos, and they were wonderful. My husband had the turkey/avocado wrap, and my stepson ordered the blackened chicken salad, and every bit was gobbled up. We also ordered a cup of eggplant soup and it was excellent, with a wonderful, smoky flavor.

For dessert, the chef put together some ice cream sandwiches made of gluten-free chocolate cookies and avocado/mint ice cream. Delicious!

We come to Scottsdale at least once a year and will definitely return to The Herb Box for another wonderful meal. I just wish they would come to Knoxville, Tennessee!

Had the blackened salmon sandwich which came with a side order of sweet potatoe chips---pricey @ $13 and nothing to write home about---won't be back again but wanted to try it out---maybe their other location in Scottsdale is better?...sure hope so for their sake:)

This is a small venue, very nice. Love the hummus plate. Great for casual lunch and dinner. I like vegetarian and my husband is a meat eater; there are menu selections that please both of us.
