Great service here and a great place to go before an event at the Schnitz. The GM is so friendly and makes sure everyone at your table is happy with their meal. Good wines and delicious and inventive food. Try the fish board-- so good!

Typical Valentines Day 'set menu' fare. $80 per person...before drinks of course. Yes, they served a 5 course dinner, but the portions were so tiny. Dinner for two with the tip; $249. There are better Valentines Day deals out there.

Went for Valentine's Day. It was a wonderful experience ! Prix Fixe menu that was tasty & just the right portions. Also offered a wine pairing that was good. Would go back to check out bar & regular menu. Cool historical building.

We had an early Valentine's Day celebration and had seen the lovely Raven & Rose before. We made a reservation which was easy online. We were greeted with a bubbly hostess and it felt very special but relaxed. Vivian was our server and she did a great job making us feel right at home. I had the corn beef hash with mustard sauce which was incredible and my husband had the full Irish breakfast. The coffee was some of the best we've had. It was all very special and fun. Thank you, R&R, for a unique and special time.

My wife and I took my sister-in-law and her boyfriend here for her birthday since she had always been attracted to the building but unfortunately the experience was abysmal to say the least. The noise level was so loud that we had to shout to hear each other, the water was lukewarm and the food had us rushing to the restroom within an hour of leaving. The waitress seemed to be adequate enough for most of the evening however when it was time for my sister-in-law's boyfriend and I to pay she very blatantly looked over our shoulders as we assigned her tip which made us all uncomfortable. Overall it was a poor experience, the food was bland and we will never go to this restaurant again.

Ridiculously overpriced. I have been eating there since they opened, but have not visited the main dining room for several years. The menu offers starter for entree prices: a pasta dish for $18 was "two bites" according to the server. The meat prices were higher than most other high end restaurants in the downtown and Pearl, the pork chop offered act the price of an aged New York Steak in other restaurants. Only the green salad was a reasonable price. I will never come here again--simply a poor value with food that is good but nothing special.

Packed on Saturday Night, Good food, Nice building, Downtown Prices.
I really enjoyed the food, the flatbread, carpaccio and fisherman's board were very very good. My date liked the flatbread but doesn't eat raw beef or seafood, was less happy with the fillet of beef, would have preferred plainer sides and more sauce, is less of a foodie. I would probably have sent the Yorkshire pudding back on the basis that if i had dried one out that much it would have been binned, but it seemed to be enjoyed as a sort of cracker. Beer and wine selection was good for us, was good, forgot to tell us we couldn't switch the sides until we asked after it had been delivered, but no biggie, they were all running around like mad.
It was packed and open table got us in without a wait when we decided to go 45 minutes out. We sat in the first booth to the right of the door where three booths sit in the hallway which leads to the upstairs bar and impressive fireplace, the rest of the dining room was behind a curtain to the left with the bar along their wall level with our booth. The door really wasn't staying closed in the wind, which did lead to some chilly gusts, but didn't put me off my meal. My date enjoyed being on the hallway and looking out onto Broadway, good people watching opportunities.
We wandered upstairs between courses and might just go there next time and listen to some music, there's a beautiful fireplace up there. Was also a table at the top of the stairs around the corner from the bar which reminded me of the European pubs where they seem to have just heaved in tables anywhere they could. It's quite like an English gastro pub, but priced for a downtown major city, which is where it is. Was well worth it for us, definitely more gastro than pub, and downstairs is not the sort of pub I would go to with a bunch of mates, but great for our date.

We ate here during the snow storm so there were literally 3 other tables so I don't know if their dinner service is always this perfect or the kitchen team just had a lot of time for attention to detail. Regardless the meal blew both my boyfriend and I away, the venison he got was amazingly cooked and delicious. We've since been back for lunch and it was equally as good as well as a late night dinner, where I got the duo of rabbit, which was also amazingly cooked. The Irish coffee is one of the better ones I have had and the staff and overall atmosphere have been equally great the 3 times we've been. I will say that the desserts that I have tried are just meh, I would suggest just getting an Irish coffee for dessert.

There were a few hiccups with communication of where dinner would be as opposed to my early arrival.
Price/portion size is a bit steep, but the food was well prepared.
All the staff were friendly and we had some good discussions.

My wife and I went for dinner on new years. This is a great little spot. The menu is pricey- hence the 3 for value. The food- oysters, liver pate, roasted beet salad, and scallops were awesome. The 4 for food is because of the beef wellington and crab citrus salad. The citrus overwhelmed the crab in the salad- leaving you with too much grapefruit flavor. The wellington- the pastry was doughy and mushrooms a bit mushy. I suspect all the moisture wasn't cooked out of the mushrooms prior to cooking. The staff was great- we were well taken care of. They quickly accommodated our request to move tables and were attentive throughout our meal.

Delicious scallops and lamb. We sat in the booths to the right of the door and it was quite drafty. Music was a bit loud and incongruous with the setting. Would certainly return but would request the central part of the restaurant which is warmer and more inviting.

This was our second time back for dinner and it was fabulous! I had the filet and my husband had the venison. Both were cooked to perfection! The portions were perfect, not too small, and not so large where we couldn't move after. Before dinner we decided to try the Rookery bar upstairs. We are already planning our next trip there - the cocktails are hand crafted with the freshest ingredients. They do have classic cocktails, and unique twists on the classics. If you're feeling adventurous, tell the mixologist what type of liquors you prefer and let them take you on a fantastic cocktail adventure!

We chose this restaurant based on the high ranking on Yelp. We were not disappointed. They only served craft spirits and beer, which were all fantastic--the ones we ordered anyway. Highly recommend the Snow Leopard vodka martini if you are Grey Goose/Belvedere man.
The beef Carpaccio was wonderful even though we had expected tartare. Not their misunderstanding, it was ours. We were really happy with everything they served and our server was really attentive and even gave us a free order of bread due to all that we ordered. Would definitely come back. A little pricey but was expected for the area.

An excellent choice for a special lunch. Warm, friendly and welcoming. Menu was tempting and delightful; choices were delicious. Service was very good, accommodating our request to split an order without hesitation. A complimentary dessert for our birthday celebration topped it off. Prices were reasonable for the outstanding cuisine. We look forward to experiencing Happy Hour in the beautiful Rookery upstairs.

There were people smoking outside of the window were we were seated. Every time the door opened the smell of smoke wafted in. The waitress asked one of the employees that was smoking to move to a different place to have her cigarette break.

On Dec 17, I ordered Lamb T-bone. It was about 3 inches thick, served medium rare, with lamb sausage and lentils. Best lamb I've had at a restaurant, including Italy and France! Overall, the wine list is expensive, as is the starter menu, but I'd go back because the entree was so outstanding.

When they called to confirm the reservation, they asked if we were going to a show. We said yes. When we arrived, they asked it we were going to a show. We told them yes. Our waiter asked if we were going to a show. Again we said yes. He said don't worry, we will get you out in time. We arrived at 6. The show was at 7:30. Our food finally arrived at 7:10. One of our dishes was not what we ordered, but we had no choice and had to eat part of it. The rest of the party had to rush to eat their dinner in 10 minutes. We told our waiter and the only thing they did was to take off our 2 drink orders. $8.00 total off our bill and offer us two desserts on our NEXT dinner with them. The plate they got wrong was a $28.00 plate. The rushed meals included a filet. They should have taken off the dinner that was wrong. We didn't have time to argue with them or we would have been late to the show. This was a $160.00 bill and a very expensive lesson learned. We will NOT be returning to this restaurant.

I am not food driven at all. I rarely find anything that "wows" my tastebuds. Most food, to me, is "ok." The food at Raven & Rose was outstanding. I had the chicken. It was full of flavor, tender, a nice portion, exquisite! And the dessert, I had the Eton Mess, was unique, refreshing, and delicious! It was on the house because it was my birthday and no embarrassing birthday songs or hats! Very elegant and classy! Will definitely go again!

This place was great! Our server was very knowledgeable but made us feel perfectly comfortable. Everyone was incredibly friendly. The food was interesting and delicious. The restaurant had a quiet, intimate feel, but right upstairs was a great bar to have a drink before or after dinner. I'd definitely go there again!
