Diner Reviews
  • "We were not prepared for the type of dining experience we had. The food was exquisitely prepared, delicious and the service was impeccable."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "What a joy to discover in Cary. A fine dining Asian fusion experience unlike anything outside of LA or NY or Singapore. You will not be disappointed in the service, the food, the wine or the bar. Don't take our word for it - try it!"

  • "My husband and I are from DC and we have been called foodies on more than one occasion. Hands down this is one of the best places either of us have ever eaten, anywhere in the world. Three days later we are still talking about the food, service and cocktails!! You have to go here!!! Every bite was better than the last!!! I wish this restaurant was in DC!!!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The ambiance at An was outstanding and the food wonderful. Unique touches such as the palate cleanser provided between the appetizers and entree made An stand out from your average romantic restaurant."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "This was my first dining experience at an and overall was very positive. The food was, as reputed, excellent and reasonably priced. Drinks are less reasonable in price. Though quite crowded by dinner time, the ambiance was busy but pleasant. Service was very prompt and professional."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Okay, so you plan a few "must" visits in your life... the Grand Canyon, Rome (some would choose Venice), a performance at the MET, sunrise on Cadillac Mountain (w/ popovers to follow).... you know the list of which I speak... to dine at Joshua Hughes' table is one of these MUST do's. a truly beautiful experience- aesthetically complete, soul satisfying, exquisitely honest food. .... don't wait for a reason (excuse) to go to Cary, NC- AN Cuisines IS the reason."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Every time I travel to Cary, dining at An! is a must. Truly outstanding food."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "While the food is quite good and the Asian fusion menu is quite diverse, service that night was very rushed, waits for food were too long, and prices are a bit too high."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The food was creative & the cocktails delicious. A lot of great stuff on the wine list, although the markup was a little steep. The quality of the service was okay, but fell far short of the food. At this price point, the service should be close to perfect."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "This is a great restaurant with terrific food and great service with a great atmosphere."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "First, our food was delicious. The pork buns, sea bass & short ribs were the winners of the night. The wine list was impressive. However, the service was poor. Our waitress never said much, we waited awhile for our white wine. We asked for the sommelier when we ordered and we waited 20 minutes then the waitress said, "he is too busy." He never even came over to check on the wine that we ended up selecting on our own.The waitress never checked on our entrees. Then when we ordered the molten chocolate cake (allow 12 min. for) the waitress came over after 25 min. & said "it'll be a bit longer"), 40 min later our dessert arrived. Never an apology&the dessert was not good. Unfortunately, the service was so bad it left a bad taste in our mouth."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Very imaginative menu but portions were skimpy. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive but her assistant could not even hit the water glass or clean up the spill after she missed it. I was also bothered by the fact that the reception staff was all Asian, the sushi preparation staff was all Japanese, but the waitstaff was all Caucasian. The food however was quite excellent."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Our first visit to AN was everything we had expected from the reviews I have read. The service was great our meals were exceptional. The short ribs were cooked to perfection. We will definitely visit again."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal at An. Each of us ordered a different appetizer to share (we learned that we could have done with just 2 appetizers). Similarly we each ordered a different entrée and again, shared with one another. Each meal had a distinct flavor, and all were very enjoyable. After such a great meal, we will too full to order dessert, but I suspect the selection and flavor would not have disappointed."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I've eaten at An twice now and it has not disappointed. The first time, I sat at the sushi bar and watched their sushi chefs create the most beautiful art from delicious food. The second time we were sat in the main dining room. Both times our service was impeccable. They offer amuse-bouche between every course. Their wine list is impressive. Food-wise, whether you go the sushi route or the traditional entree route, you will not be disappointed. The food had subtle twists you will not find in a typical Asian cuisine. Styled in a chic, modern way, the restaurant is romantic enough for date night, but open enough for a large group setting. We loved our experience and will be back again and again!"

  • "We have lived in the area since 1992 and had never gone to An. When it originally opened, someone told me that it was overpriced and not worth it. Unfortunately that opinion stuck with me over the years. I recently got a gift card to An and decided to use it for my wife's 50th birthday--we were both blown away! Everything was to perfection. Sushi, pork buns, entrees (the Sea Bass is amazing!), dessert, even espresso! Our waiter was one of the best we have ever had, informative, friendly and very knowledgeable. It was just a great experience all the way around. Next time I will try the patio, it looks fantastic!"

  • "Nicely appointed restaurant and good food. Do not miss the chocolate cookies for dessert."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Outstanding food, beautifully prepared and presented. Excellent, attentive service. Even a complimentary glass of Cava after we informed them that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "After trying many restaurants over the past few months being new to the area, I have found one that is a definite keeper. An's food presentation, service, and ambience are top notch. Yes, it is a little pricey but so much care and thought goes into the food preparation and presentation, it is worth it, I believe. The server was outstanding and knew the ingredients of all menu items. The bus staff and management constantly made rounds to make sure every guest was attended to. We loved the décor and placement of tables and the excellent outdoor dining space. We are looking forward to our next visit to An's!"

  • "The food was awesome and the staff was amazing. AN has a great setting for all occasions - work lunch/dinner, date night or just because. I am looking foward to telling friends and family all about it."

  • "Excellent waitress. Excellent food. Ambience very pleasant. I've eaten here for lunch and dinner. Always interesting. The food is the star of the experience as it should be;"

  • "We were at dinner last week. From the appetizers to the chocolate cookies it was all superb. Service was impeccable and on point. We look forward to returning soon."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Not a fan of the new menu. My sea bass has been on the menu, or at least a version of it but other items were missing. It was a little more exotic which could make it difficult for some to find an item that is acceptable. The Vietnamese sausage appetizer was good. Will go back but will think before thing others there,"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Excellent food and wine. Outstanding service by Taylor. However, the main dining room was LOUD, largely due to one individual in a green shirt. This was our first visit, but will not be the last."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "An did a wonderful job of making our 30th anniversary dinner a special time. The food, service, atmosphere, and everything else made the evening just right."

  • "An is one of the truly great dining experiences to be had anywhere. Without question, it dominates the very top of the pecking order in every way. It's quite clear that Executive Chef Stephen Greene knows his business, as nothing, not even the smallest detail is left to chance. The ambience, decor, service etc. equals the stellar quality of the kitchen creations. The food is always superb. Do not miss the chance to dine at an. It's one of the Triangle's treasures."
    Dined on 5/23/2014

Asked for the somellier but he had left for the night. Ordered a bottle they were out. Was told at 9:45 that if we wanted desert we needed to order because the kitchen was closing."

  • "Everything about our meal was more than excellent except the service. Our wait person was attentive but aloof - kept us waiting nearly 20 min before delivering our cocktail order -seemed unhappy when 2 of our party did not order cocktails. Otherwise it was excellent. I will go again and request a different wait person. "
