Culinary Dropout Waterfront Ratings and Reviews
A friend recommended this place and he was spot on. Great food, cool atmosphere and top notch service. Our group tried the Ribs, fried chicken and Salmon. Each were prepared as if this place specialized in only that dish. I also ordered the Seared Ahi salad and we asked for a separate dish so we could share. The server offered to split it up for us without missing a beat. Definitely worth the try.
Cold old coffee. Slow food. My aunts food came out 5-10 minutes after everyone else's food. It was embarrassing since it's the first opportunity in years for me to take her out and she watched everyone else eat. She came to visit from 2000 miles away and this is where I took her for a treat. I'm not sure why this place has all the hype. She had a salad by the way. Not exactly time consuming,
We had the Caesar salad and substituted chicken for the fried shrimp. We got a bowl full of dressed lettuce and kale. No croutons, no chicken. They brought out a chicken breast on a separate plate for us to add. It definitely wasn't a typical caesar and felt like a very expensive bowl of lettuce and kale w/ dressing. Nothing special AT ALL! The next night I had the most AMAZINGLY beautiful, tasty and colorful salad at Dough Bird. There!!! Is where I'll be going next time I'm in town!
Definitely NOT a place to take out of town guests. The service was DEPLORABLE and while I can abide poor service if the food and drinks are divine, CD fell short. The food was only mediocre.
Service issues included a server who kept pulling up her tube top!! ...as she handled our food!? She also kept getting lost! Never checked back on us, thus couldn't even get drinks to make the experience tolerable!
Overall ~ FAIL
We went here for my sons graduation celebration from ASU. We had a great night! We were seated outside which had a great ambiance. Food and service were GREAT! The restaurant Even supplied my son with a complimentary dessert to celebrate. Best part, It is was so nice that it was not too loud so we could have easy conversation and have many laughs together. Highly recommend. Thank you Culinary Dropout for a wonderful night!
Group of 5, sat on patio. Everything was great. Loved the atmosphere. Food was very tasty. Pretzels, pirogies, are must haves. Fried chicken dinner excellent value and taste. Music was a little loud when we first sat down but was lowered so we could hear each other.
I took my husband to dinner here for his birthday. It was perfect. He loved the live music, the food was amazing and our waitress could not have been more sweet and on top of things. If you want a quiet romantic place to have a deep conversation this isn't for you... but if you are looking for a fun night out with some yummy food, it's worth it.
Great. Location great, food quality very good. Service was disappointing. Service was slow. Had to ask multiple times for bill. She was nice, just did not seem to care about how long it took her to take the order, to check on empty glasses, or bring the bill.
The evening got started off wrong when the hostess was just incredibly slow and had a restaurant half empty but no place to seat us for our confirmed reservation. It took forever to get our salads. They ended up being delivered with our sandwich. By the time we finished our salads the sandwich had gotten cold. Better places to eat in Phoenix/Scottsdale.
Food was tasty, live music was good but impossible to carry on any kind of conversation. Too loud! We had reservation at 7:15 and was extremely loud from the get go-didn’t wait for later in the evening to ramp up the noise! Had to leave earlier then anticipated because of noise level.
