Diner Reviews
  • "Our service was far under par. When you are paying that much for drinks, wine and dinner you expect impeccable service. Service was slow and uninterested. The noise level was over the top in the main dining area. If I return, I will make a point to sit in the sushi bar area or in the booths that are in the center space. I will have my eye out for the server who nearly ignored us and seek other assistance."

  • "The service was friendly and professional, the wine was great, and the food was wonderfully presented and tasted great. There were a few 'misses' like the spring rolls but that is only in comparison to the amazing entree and first course dishes we had. The special, a beef dish with pear, some sort of spice blossoms, and other colorful accoutrements was a dynamic dish with a lot of flavors that worked well together."

  • "We had been several times to An restaurant and always very pleased with the food, the service and the overall atmosphere. Additionally, we are very pleased with the low level of noise which is becoming a major problem these days especially for mature people with hearing issues."

  • "We had a lovely anniversary dinner at An. The entire staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was a pleasant surprise and something unique which was exactly what we were looking for. Both our entrees and appetitizers were outstanding. We will definitely be returning."

  • "My wife and I eat everywhere, it's a "hobby" of ours to travel and eat. This place is a true hidden gem, we did not expect this experience at a restaurant in the triangle beside the two 5 star properties here. Even though AN is not rated the same as the other two it still is very very close as far as food goes. Service could be a touch more polished but still it felt warm and welcoming. The cocktails we had before dinner where also excellent. The bartender really knew his stuff."

  • "We were taking a risk at bring our 9 year old. She was very well behaved and loved the ambience. The food was just to sophisticated for her. All of the adults loved their food. The server was a bit awkward a few times but over all polite."

  • "The food was delicious, the staff was knowledgeable and polite and the interior is beautiful. I'd heard good things about an for years and finally tried it out. As my girlfriend pointed out, "All food should be this good." I completely agree with her. The huge wine list is definitely geared towards connoisseurs big spenders."

  • "A great choice for our open Saturday night between the weekend NCAA games in Raleigh. The steamed park buns were really, really good A+. Sea bass was B+good, crab cakes a B-. Drink choices were good and service was professional and polished. Ended with the fresh baked chocolate cookies...great for sharing!"

  • "I love fine dining. I specifically search out James Beard award winners/nominees when I travel. An is absolutely delicious and a complete dining experience. We didn't have time for drinks at the bar, but from the moment we sat down, it was exactly what one would expect from this type of establishment. I would definitely recommend it."

  • "This place consistently knocks it out of the park. From the beginning until the end, my friends and i love this place. My wife and I moved from DC 2 years. We didn't think we would find places here that is this creative in food and solid in service. I Highly recommend it to everyone."

  • "This was our first experience at an and we were not disappointed. The waitress was knowledgeable and attentive without being too attentive. The food was unique and disappointed. We went to celebrate a special occasion and will definately return."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary here. Best meal of our married and dating life. You know that perfect bite face? I made it over the first bite of my sea bass and the first bite of my chocolate dessert. We also loved the duck confit appetizer. And all the complimentary bites between courses added to the experience. Service was elegant, though we had the feeling we were being watched every moment. All-in-all, it felt like our pleasure in our meal was planned by experts. It was an unusual feeling but it worked."

  • "Sushi was excellent! Filet was great with lots of flavor! Appetizers were very good! No bud light and no good merlot. :( Atmosphere and service were grade A!"

  • "Nice night out. Great service, restaurant is pretty but food was hit or miss. Not really recommended if you're expecting "traditional" asian food. It is listed as fusion restaurant and it certainly is that. Overall good experience."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We had a very good dining experience. The restaurant is lovely and the service was attentive. The food was very good and nicely presented. I found the restaurant online. It was our first visit to Raleigh. I am very happy we found An and would definitely go back if we are in Raleigh again."

  • "Went to An for late evening nosh. Ordered salad, a roll and sashimi. Ate at the sushi bar to watch the show. Have been here before and disappointed by cost vs food quality and quantity. This time was absolutely a knock out. Roll was well prepared and artfully presented, and of good size for the price. Salmon sashimi top quality and much more fish than in previous visits. Even though we were ordered so little, Still got top notch service and all the extras including edamame, sorbet to cleanse palate, scones and muffins for bread, and chocolate dipped fortune cookies at the end."

  • "We've been here for 2 years, and An is by far the best restaurant we've been do in the area. The food was very fresh, flavorful and inventive. Service was great as well, not too intrusive, but attentive. This will be our go to spot for a nicer night out. Go!"

  • "Wow! What a surprise. A friend recommended An but it was so much more than we expected !! The food was exceptional and the presentations were beautiful. The staff was very professional and prompt. It's a tad on the pricey side but between the two of of the bill was only $100. 2 drinks each, a split appetizer, two entrees and a split dessert. The portions are small but by the time we were finished, we were satisfied. Beautiful, delicious, great ambiance and totally worth it… Love this restaurant, will DEFINITELY be back..."

  • "Plain food, but overpriced. The quantities are unbalanced. My Thai chicken wings appetizer (5 wings) was bigger than my main meal Scallops. Taste wise both were bland. Never again."

  • "This is my third or fourth visit to the An, first time for lunch though. The experience was very good, food ( I had the Bass) was amazing, we had a great meal. We were greeted with smiles, service was smart and professional, waiting staff need to chill though, I mean relax and be natural and this would have made it a five star visit."

  • "We brought family in from New York City - people who definitely appreciate a fine meal. The menu is impressive and food is beautifully prepared and served and we had a wonderful evening. We've been to An quite a few times (as have some friends) and the consensus is that the service is not up to the level of the food and ambience."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Been here many times and always enjoyed the food. The drawback to this place is the price. Its nice but what you get is more for looks and less substance. Still a good place but expect the bill to climb quickly."

  • "This place really is very good. I have dined here twice now - once with a work group and now as a 'regular' diner, and I have to say it's amazing. Well worth the trip."

  • "Met friends out on Saturday night for a last-minute reservation at An. The atmosphere was very relaxing, nice, upscale. The staff was professional, courteous, helpful. Explaining menu items with patience and excitement. Both drinks and food selections were unique, tastefully prepared, and wonderfully presented. We were there for a 6pm reservation and did not finish until close to 9, with amazing desserts. Overall, it was pricey, but well worth it. What a treat!"
