We had not been to Raso's in a number of years, and found our recent experience wonderful. We would definitely highly recommend Raso's to friends, and look forward to returning soon. Carolyn was very friendly and warm to us and we found her to be very professionable. Matt, our waiter, was attentive, knowledgeable, and very helpful. He could not do enough to help make our dining experience first rate! The food was sublime, as was the wine!!! Thank you to all!

This was some of the best food my girlfriends and I have had in a while. Everything was cooked to perfection and the Salads were amazing along with the size of the Shrimp on them. Service was awesome, quick, friendly very attentive. I'm taking my daughter back this weekend because she hasn't been there in a while. I'm getting the very same Salad. Recommend this establishment to everybody.

Went here before a show at the Chevalier theatre on a Sunday evening. Parking is tough and we parked at a strip with stores, most of them closed) but not sure you would find parking on a week night anywhere nearby. Food and service were both good as were drinks. Prices are reasonable. Portions good sized enough to take some home if you are not very hungry.

As good as the food was, the service was even better. Alicia is, hands-down, the best waitress. Not just at Raso‘s. Anywhere! She’s friendly, engaging, funny, and efficient. She’s everything you want in a waiter and she’s the best! Of course the steak tips are outstanding, the salad is delicious, the lemon dressing oooooh I could bathe in it!The hostess is on her game, the bus staff is always on their game - the entire front of house is phenomenal. The kitchen staff rocks, too!! Always dependable. Always reliable. Consistently exceeding expectations. Always an enjoyable experience. Go. Often. Enjoy!

Drinks and appetizer came out relatively quickly. The appetizer ordered was a special -- Steak and cheese egg rolls. Appetizer that we were served was actually toasted ravioli egg rolls. We didn't gripe as we didn't have a problem with toasted ravioli, but we did inform our server that we did not receive the item we ordered in case someone else's order also wrong. Server stated those were the only type of egg rolls being served, which leads to why were the steak and cheese ones listed on the specials sheet?

Anyway, after receiving appetizer, we placed our entrée order, which was at about 6:30pm. Server came by again for additional drink order, but once it got past 7pm with no food, we began wondering if our order was put into the kitchen. Upon asking server, he just said kitchen was backed up, but other customers who were seated after us had already received their food, so not sure that was the truthful answer.

Server did offer free dessert as a bit a redemption, but overall this first experience at Raso's will likely be our last. It's definitely not a place I'd refer to anyone.

The food never disappoints. The restaurant could use an update though. Pretty dark and dismal. The outside deck is nice on a summer evening.

We were visiting from New York and made reservations due to the reviews on line and we were not disappointed. We were seated right away and given menus. The server was at our table promptly to take our drink orders. Bread was brought to our table quickly and our orders taken. The food was delicious and the cappuccino was some of the best I tasted. I can’t say enough about the service. It was quick and efficient. I highly recommend this place

Good food, excellent service, and a good value overall. The only downside is the very dated inside dining area - it could really use an upgrade.

Our evening out at Raso’s was outstanding as always. Summer specialty cocktails are back!!! I’m a huge fan of Watering the Garden. Will be back several times this summer to enjoy another one of those drinks.

Parking is tough but "The bar is lively"!! The bartenders are fabulous and make excellent craft cocktails! We had reservations on a Friday night at 5:45 before a show at the Chevalier Theater (approx one mile away) After seeing the dining room...we opted to sit in the bar. The dining room is dated but quaint. The food was delicious even though the pork chop was over cooked. The sausage is a must try! We will definitely go back

Busy night and the wait staff was seemed to be stretched thin. We didn’t see our waiter, and I think it was due to the night being under staffed. Also, food took very long to come out, and when it did, the pasta dishes came out steaming, as they should be, and the meat and fish dishes were lukewarm.

Alicia may be the best waitperson we’ve ever had. She’s quick, gracious, funny and very efficient - everything you want to complete your dining experience. The food, as always, was delicious. The steak tips cooked to perfection, paired with a spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese was exactly what I wanted and they delivered. The lemon dressing is fantastic.. I look forward to it every time we go to Raso’s. Everyone enjoyed their meals. It was a very lovely evening out.

The food was delicious as always but I was disappointed to see that the menu had changed and some of my favorites were no longer available. We sat at the bar for an hour and some of the beers listed on the menu were not available when ordered, then when we sat down for dinner, we ordered a bottle of wine for the table and was told that they didn't have that specific wine. Our waiter was great and gave us a more expensive bottle for the same price as the one that was out, but when we later went to order that same bottle, we were told that that wasn't available any more either.

I've been to Raso's multiple times and I've never been disappointed with the quality of their food, and would recommend it to friends, but also let them know not to get their hopes up when it comes to the drinks.

Made a reservation for 3, 8 days prior. Table was 30 plus minute wait, hostess didn’t provide updates, waitress rarely stopped over, water refilled only when tracked down, very loud tables nearby including lots of regulars who clearly get preferential treatment. Too bad because the food was quite good but we would not return.
