Ate our way through the appetizer menu while sitting at the bar... loved it!
Camw for my 21st birthday and it was the best choice I could of made. Food was amazing and the drinks even better.
Very trendy place with real good food, drinks and atmosphere. Service was excellet!
Food was great but as always the service was subpar.
Reservation at 7:30. Seated close to 7:45, but busy Fri night, so okay. The service was slow and underwhelming though. Uncomfortably cold.
The food was delicious! They offer a variety of choices but not an overwhelming amount. We had the pretzels with fondue...Amazing! My husband had the green chile stew & it was so good, I could have eaten a gallon of it. I had the Italian grinder with the salad, the sandwich was huge and yummy, but the side salad was probably the best side salad I have ever had, it made me wish I had forgone the sandwich & just ordered the full salad. We also had banana cream pie and a couple of very yummy and strong cocktails, names are escaping me, pistol something & dove something, both were delicious and we would recommend. Overall we would suggest you eat at Culinary Drop Out and we will come again when we travel to the area.
Service was top notch!
The music inside the restaurant at 7:00pm was extremely loud, to the point that our group of people could not hold a conversation. The restaurant has difficult parking.
Food was delicious. Very very loud! Plus a band playing as well. We couldn’t talk or hear each other and needed our cell torches to see the menu and the bills.
Homemade pasta stuffed with butternut squash a delicious meal!
Loved the atmosphere of the Culinary Dropout. Nice outside patio experience and great food. The service was very good, while the food was great. Nice happy hour worth attending.
Great food, waiter was very personable, saw other people having slow service, loud atmosphere, awesome decor.
Good food, great flavor, smaller portions but enough.
This place wAs well worth the trip. Green chili stew was great and Frankie took great care of us.
Great time. Took awhile to get drinks, probably because they were slammed. Nonetheless, food was amazing.
I checked in for my reservation at 6:50, checked back a few times, after seeing 5 other groups be seated. Got our table at 7:20, apps came out quickly, the meal took another 30 minutes. The food was okay at best. Not hot, not very flavorful. I have no idea what was taking so long, it wasn't overly crowded. I'm not sure that I would go back for dinner.
Meh, my family’s and my experience was meh, we we’re not much impressed. Felt food offering variety was limited and waitresses recommendation to us that restaurant’s best item is Fried Chicken, chicken came out ovecooked, few pieces, and very pricey for what we received. Would give restaurant a second chance if
The service was unbelievably good. In spite of a packed house in the height of spring training season, we had six different staff members ask with sincerity about how things were going. I like a short menu because it makes me feel like a restaurant can concentrate on being very good at each dish. They have simple pub food for entrees, but the antipasto selection concept is great. The noise level was disappointing. There were very loud drunks all over the place, with loud 80s music pumping.
Easy, quick, quality, fun, early evening meal after the ballgame! Perfect for us!
Wish I could hang out here everyday. Food was sensational and the service, well beyond friendly along with punctual.
Well worth the visit. Will return for lunch. Loved the salad I had it. It was delicious and so were the cocktails and my husbands chicken burger with bacon and cheese looked yummy. Nice atmosphere great server.
Very limited menu, it's a good lunch menu but not too many options for dinner entrees. I felt that the menu prices were high for the sandwiches and drinks. I had a business meeting with customers that were from out of town and they wanted to try it. Once we were there they were disappointed with the options but liked the decor. The music was very loud for a restaurant and it was hard to hear each other talk. If I'm out and about and want to grab a beer and a pretzel it's a great place but as far as entertaining clients I will not be back.
Jamie our waitress as wonderful! She made an effort to get to know us and was very attentive to everyone in our party. I highly recommend the restaurant and especially Jamie
Amazing food, service and ambiance! If we lived in the state we would be back again! The asparagus, pretzels with fondue provolone cheese and fried chicken was delicious!! Thank you!
Service was a bit spotty, but the food was good.
Food was very good, service was great but, so very noisy, couldn’t talk had to yell.
Great food and service!
Noisy but fun and energetic, the food and service very good. If a casual and quiet venue is what you seek, find another location. The Culinary Dropout Waterfront is an energetic and busy place. The service is first rate and the food very good and presented well, though the wait when busy may seem a bit long. This may be just what you are looking for, or it may be just the opposite. The choice is yours......
Overall very enjoyable spot! Lots of positive aspects; interesting cocktails, good views of fashion district, heated outdoor tables, and good service. The only constructive criticism is that I would have liked the portion size of my fish and chips to have been larger.
Always a great place. The food and service outstanding. The fondue and pretzel balls are the best.
Great food and service. I travel to Scottsdale every now and then and make sure I visit this place each time. The best place to eat in Scottsdale.
Jami Lee took great care of us. Our first table left one of us dealing with the glare coming in the windows....so Jami Lee moved us to a better location....now we have the light coming in on the side - more comfortable all around.
And all throughout our visit Jami Lee kept coming over to make sure we were good - made for a great lunch and the food was very good as well...especially the fondue/pretzel appetizer....very yum.
This is our second time to Culinary Dropout and it was delicious. The pretzel/fondu combo is not to be missed. We split the fried chicken which was plenty of food ... and their specialty manhattan was fabulous. It was also a good value :)
Service was not as good as we have had on prior visits
Excellent food and service, great atmosphere. Culinary Dropout was definiteIy a great restaurant, and a great date spot. I will definiteIy eat there again!
Always a great experience! Honestly the BEST old fashioned drink in all of Phoenix 😉
Great food, very loud...hard to talk with others at our table.
Culinary Dropout Waterfront puts an interesting and tasty twist on all their food. Nothing too wild. The food wad very well presented, very fresh and tasty. The staff were excellent and the atmosphere was vibrant but not too loud. I strongly recommend Culinary Dropout Waterfront.
Food was good, felt a little rushed out at first, but had a good experience. Music super loud. Could barely hear the singer over his own music. Not a great place for catching up or holding conversation. Loved the live music though.Still great environment, would absolutely go back.
Our server, Rachel, was wonderful. The ribs were wonderful.
