We were staying less than a block away from the Switch. We are here three times. Lunch and dinner twice. The menu has some interesting choices. I had a great burger for lunch and green chile meatloaf for dinner twice. My wife had a glutenfree meal. Well worth a visit.

My husband and I recently had dinner at Switch while in Phoenix for an appointment. The weather was great so we opted for the outdoor patio area. We arrived at 6 pm, but were readily seated at the table of our choice. The waitress was attentive and provided good service. I ordered the Pablo Blue salad with chicken and my... More

My wife and I stopped here the first day we arrived in Phoenix. This is a nice (but kind of dark) little place that also has outdoor seating. It was chilly and rainy so we sat inside. We both hand salads with grilled salmon which were delicious. The problem was the drinks. (I don't think I've ever said that in... More

We really enjoyed our meal at this friendly wine bar. The staff were friendly, service was good and the meals were tasty, a better range of dishes than the usual bar.

Went for brunch. Their french toast and sausage was really good but there was an issue. They didn't have maple syrup. The syrup was blueberry syrup. I cant love a place that doesn't respect the classics. Maple syrup is an american staple like ketchup. Make your fancy syrups and sauces but make sure you have the staples!

We enjoy dining at Switch, because of its close proximity and great service. Staff are very attentive and willing to work with the customer and kitchen staff to customize the dishes in the menu. We tend to enjoy their Classic Burger, particularly because they accommodate our "likes" - medium well, mushrooms, no bun and great sweet potato fries. Also worth... More

Atmosphere very nice, modern yet somewhat laid back. Everyone was very nice. Eggs Benedict were good not not amazing according to partner. I had something called Lili's Chilaquiles. I absolutely loved it! Recommend for brunch for sure.

My group of 7 came for lunch. The hostess said there were no table large enough, but we could sit at the bar. Two ladies are unable to climb on the high stools. There were 5 empty tables outside. 4 for 4 and 1 for 6. They finally agreed to clean the 6 and find an additional chair. We waited... More

Great choice for dinner with the team. Something for everyone and every dish was very good. Monday night be prepared for them to be out of a few things with a busy weekend behind them, but there were plenty of other items to choose. Great for larger parties but good to make a reservation any night of the week.
