Diner Reviews
  • "A nice evening with good friends and great food. Staff seemed to be a little pushed due to large party in closed area"
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "Great bar and service. The appetizer was much better than my noodle dish which was a little disappointing."
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "Our dinner was a celebration of two birthdays for our grandchildren - ages 13 and 17. We chose five appetizers to share, which gave the kids an opportunity to try different flavors. The presentation was so impressive the kids took photos to post. The main courses were equally as wonderful and all was devoured. The deserts, too, were spectacular. An is highly recommended!"
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "We had a private room to celebrate a special birthday. The wonderful ambiance, service and food made the entire evening wonderful."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "This restaurant is sure to see that every detail is considered. Exceptional staff with wonderful food."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The food itself was great, but I was disappointed in the portion of it. After eating a main dish and appetizer (cost about $50), I was still not full. I've been to many Japanese restaurants in NYC with the similar price range as An Cuisine, but their food quality was amazing with the satisfying portion."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Best food and environment for sushi! Servers was over the top and never had to look for them to refill a glass of wine or water."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "An offers the best fine dining experience in the Triangle. I wish we could afford to go there every week."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I've eaten at An several times and have always enjoyed the experience. However, while the food was excellent during my most recent visit, the over zealous wait staff -- from filling water, bringing palate cleansers and just generally hovering around us to fold our napkins if we moved -- left a sour taste in my mouth. An is not an inexpensive place, and this was a special occasion with my significant other. We felt as if we didn't have a moments peace! I'm writing this review in the hopes that it was an off night or that the restaurant will make sure their staff recognizes when people are in the throws of conversation."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "My husband, my son, and I dined last night at An. We had requested the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings. I had alerted the restaurant to my husband's allergies, and we were completely delighted at how beautifully they responded to our wishes. The dishes that had ingredients he was allergic to were replaced for him by similar and equally wonderful dishes, and each was given its own perfect wine pairing. The care that went into picking out what in many ways was a second chef's tasting menu for him were extraordinary. The restaurant also provided my son with an alternate dessert, simply because he didn't care for one of the ingredients. Absolutely fantastic food, incredible wines, and service that can't be matched."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The food was fabulous, full of flavor and a unique blend of flavors and unique tastes. Ambiance was great, and every one of the staff were attentive, polite and gracious."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Very nice preparations with great fusion of Asian and American."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We were completely amazed at not only the presentation but the fantastic mixture of flavors at An. We shared the Imperial roll appetizer, which was great. For entrees, I had the duck meal and my husband had the beef and we can't stop thinking about how delicious it all was! Wish we lived closer, because we would definitely make it a favorite place!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I hosted a business dinner at An and it went well. Not being a Raleigh resident, I didn't know where to hold the dinner and relied on someone in our party to choose. I was pleased with her choice. The food was very good. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, which allowed us to talk. Also the noise level was good, so it wasn't too noisy for us to talk. One of the people in our group also mentioned that they have a great brunch here. I would definitely return to this restaurant on a future visit to Raleigh."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "The food, selections, and presentation were excellent. The attempts to make this a stellar gem in Cary were very successful. My four dining companions and I were very impressed. This was my first visit, but I'll be back."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "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
  • "My wife and I again chose an to celebrate our anniversary, and it was again fantastic. The service was outstanding, even better than before, if that is possible. The food was amazing beginning to end, from the gazpacho and salad appetizers to the variety of interesting sushi rolls we shared. Thank you an!"
    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!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The sake felt bottomless. The sushi was devine. Went there for a first date and had the perfect atmosphere to talk and get to know eachother. I will be going back again."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We dine here often and think it's the best sushi in the triangle!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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!"

  • "Absolutely the very best sushi in the area. The service is excellent and the menu creative. A perfect spot for a special dinner or just enjoying an evening. Really looking forward to our next visit."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "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."
