You can make service better not from waiter but from the cleaning and table lifting staff pretty bad we had a plate of finish food for almost 35 minutes

Such a cool vibe. All servers, bartenders have the absolute best service. Hostesses/check-in could use some (ok a lot) of improvement. Having reservations, when we checked in, they told us to wait for our other person and go to the bar. No problem, we did. As soon as we ordered drink, another hostess came over to tell us our table was ready. It spiraled from there. But after we got situated, our server Danielle rocked and it made up for the initial cluster. She made sure our celebratory business meeting went as planned. Thank you Danielle. Hopefully, management both recognizes, first impression is the key to overall satisfaction and also recognizes Danielle and server crew for great service.

Our servers were fantastic. It was my birthday and we received complimentary champagne and a personalized birthday card.

Food was amazing. We shared the bone in ribeye, mashed potatoes and green beans. Also we had a table-side ceaser salad!! This restaurant is so gorgeous also. I want to come here every day.

Too overpriced for what you get. Food was good but not worth what they charged.

This was our second time here celebrating our Anniversary. We love almost everything here! The service was outstanding, the food was phenomenal, and the ambiance was fun! The prices are extremely expensive though. We would be regulars and visit more often if it was a bit more affordable.

We thought the food was really great however the service was not what we were expecting for the money we were spending. We had to ask for a couple things more than once and found ourselves wondering when our server or server assistant would come back on more than one occasion

My new favorite restaurant. I loved everything about it and will make a point to visit again but without my young child so I can fully enjoy it. The servers were so accommodating to the fact I had a fussy baby so thank you. Born and Raised is a masterpiece. There’s so much more I could write about it but words really don’t do it justice.

Our meal was outstanding! From the tableside craft martini, to the tableside Caesar salad and the tableside Steak Diane----everything was wonderful and such a fun presentation! The ambiance and entire atmosphere is warm and elegant. Born and Raised was a great place to celebrate our anniversary!

I thought the whole experience was disappointing. They are so busy doing table side shows that they have forgotten to run a truly great restaurant with superior food and service. I won’t go back. Expensive and not worth it.

Went for a double date with my sister and her boyfriend! Enjoyed the entire experience. Definitely worth getting tableside specials. Food was delicious especially the wagyu beef, it literally melted in our mouths. They did not have the Philly cheese steak during dinner time which made us a little sad but their steaks made up for it. Will definitely comeback during happy hour to get one of their Phillies when I come back to SD.

This was, without a doubt one of the best dining experiences myself, and my girlfriend have ever had the pleasure of. Everything, from the service to the food, the ambiance and the comfort - exceptional. We cannot wait for our next visit! It can't come soon enough! We started with the burgundy snails and bone marrow and well, that was inarguably one of the best bites I have ever taken. Our dinner experience here was next level, and it's hard to imagine having a better one. Cheers.

Wonderful meal and service! Love the ambience/decor! My ONLY criticism is that it was pretty noisy and the music was heavy on bass. We heard a lot of thump thump and not much else.

The food was pretty good, but the service was lacking after the initial greeting. It took over an hour to get our food. After spending $450, I expected more. I'd only go back if I wasn't paying.

This was just our 2nd time dining at Born & Raised, and we thought we loved it before - we were blown away! Everything was perfect - the food, the cocktails, the service & the ambiance. I wasn't sure if the experience would be the same while dining on the rooftop patio, but the service was still perfect and the view just added to it. Born & Raised has become my favorite restaurant - I already can't wait to come back!

One of the best steaks of my life. The Japanese Wagyu is to die for. The ambiance is great, a fun scene for a night out. Will definitely be returning for the next special occasion.

Born and Raised was incredible from the moment we sat down at the bar to the end of our meal. We had the steak sampler, which was unbelievable. The corn bisque and the beef tartare (made table-side) was gorgeous. We also received a handwritten note from the staff for our anniversary, which was so surprising and touching. Such a knowledgeable and competent staff, so happy we had the opportunity to dine there.

This place is amazing. Perfect date night or special occasion. This was our first time here and we will definitely come back. The decor is beautiful with the big wooden columns and comfy chairs. The meat was delicious. I have never had such a flavorful bone in ribeye before! I ordered the tableside martini and loved the presentation and tasted wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable and tended to our needs. The rooftop bar was so cool and may just go up there next time and get a drink and appetizer. The vibe was rad. It is a little on the spendy side, so get ready to fork out $15 plus for a drink... but worth it for those special occasions.

First visit - amazing! The liquid nitrogen Manhattans were perfect. They bring over a large buffet and make the drink right in front of you! Everything was delicious: bone marrow, NOT a wedge (think pork belly bacon chunks), rib eye, mushrooms, carrot cake (read: HUGE SLICE), and a large macaroon for a special birthday. Service was on par. The open lounge upstairs was awesome.

An incredible meal, expensive but worth every penny. Born and Raised embodies experiential dining that is entertaining and of the highest culinary quality. The service was just as fantastic as the food and spectacle. Gorgeous ambiance - elegant, refined, yet cool at the same time.
