“DECENT FOOD AND SERVICE”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Overpriced, average salads and so-so iced tea were what gives this an "average" rating instead of "very good." The menu selections are pretty limited, which one would expect for a museum restaurant, but quality and price were also just average.

The dining room is pretty dismal too.

With oodles of places to choose for lunch, skip this one and go to one of a dozen better ones in the neighborhood.

“Relaxing experience with good, healthy food.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We finished off our museum tour with eating a well prepared lunch in the courtyard. There was a good breeze and plenty of shade to make the experience delightful. The food was tasty and reasonably priced.

“Incredible food!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Some of the best food I have ever eaten. Just checked out the menu online but it has changed to the summer menu from the spring menu so could not find what I had ordered. It was a flatbread with obviously fantastic toppings!

“Nice Location, Odd Menu”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

This cafe is fine if you plan on spending a few hours at the Heard. Generally speaking we would recommend trying other restaurants in Phoenix over the higher priced, odd-menued Courtyard Cafe. If dining or snacking here, the courtyard may be preferable to eating indoors.

“"Native" Food in a wonderful venue”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Not fancy, but good food in a wonderful setting. Prices are good too. You'll have a choice to eat inside or out. The patio terrance is quaint and even if it is hot a nice place to reflect and refuel.
