The food is good, but you consistently wait to get noticed. They seat you and you wait constantly for someone to wait on you. I think the don't have enough wait staff on the weekends. Servers seem to have tables all over instead of a focused area. Food is good, but coffee could be better.

Quality food at reasonable prices. Best toast ever and sliced home fries. The coffee is always good along with the service.

Our group needed a place to have breakfast after church Sunday morning and I suggested First Watch. We had about a 20 minute wait as they were quite busy but once we got seated the service was excellent and the food was good. Everyone enjoyed or meal.

While this is a national chain, the food is fresh and healthy. The staff are all really friendly and the manager is, as well. I opted for the Trifecta. I guess I'm more traditional. The food was great and cooked fresh I a timely manner. The place was clean and well kept and open by 7am. I liked it so... More

This was our 3rd visit and last. Every time we had to return glasses, cups or silverware with food etc still on them. We had to wait many minutes for someone to come to the cashiers stand to take our money. The person in front of us got so frustrated, they just walked out without paying.

When these guys were located over on 75th St. it was one of our favorite places. I guess they've gotten too big for their britches now and after recently trying this location we won't be back. The service was slow, The can't even scramble an egg without messing it up, and their menu is too fru-fru for just plain folks.... More

Not wanting to pay 5-star hotel prices for breakfast, we headed to First Watch at the Promenade each day during our 4-night stay in Scottsdale. While we were usually quoted a 15-minute wait for a table on arrival, it rarely took that long to be seated. Service was friendly and efficient, and a carafe of coffee was left on the... More

Great breakfast. i had the waffles which were very good. First Watch had some of the best coffee i have tasted. Staff were friendly as well. I recommend for breakfast if you are in the area and want to eat well.
