    Quite possible the most comfortable chair you will ever sit in at a restaurant. The wine list is outstanding with many wines available by the glass, some half bottles too. Menu is varied with many Tapas (small plate) items along with a few entrees. Save room for the home made desserts!!

    The food was decent here, I went for Howard County restaurant week. I had the ceviche, the scallops, the filet, and the chocolate molten cake. The ceviche and the cake were outstanding, and the steak was cooked perfectly! It was a bit loud in the restaurant but the waiter was very courteous and the service was outstanding in my opinion. A bit expensive I think, but worth a visit!

    Wide range of tapas. Went on the last night of restaurant week, so they were really busy. I wasn't please with the lamb cops, so they gave us a free dessert.

    We've been to Ranazul's many time and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. We were eating lunch at 1200 noon on this particular day in celebration of restaurant week in Howard county so we were a bit surprised when we asked the server about the 'fixed price' menu that we were informed that the chef would not be ready to service the 'special' menu until 1:30pm in the afternoon. Overall, we enjoyed the food and drinks and would definitely return another time.

    We went during restaurant week in Howard County. The service was not very prompt although we were not in any hurry. The floor manager apologized several times for the poor timing on for the food on the fixed price menu. We love the food, especially the "carrot cake" dessert. Overall we consider Ranazul a great find near where we live.

    The food was quite good and I was surprised to find a Tapas restaurant in Fulton. However, the restaurant doesn't truly grasp the concept of tapas, with prices so high for each item. I both baltimore and DC, the prices are lower and serving sizes larger for comparable fare. Still, for a place surrounded by farmland, it was a pleasant surprise.

    Excellent food. The almond-encrusted fried manchego cheese was absolutely superb, and the pork tenderloin was cooked to perfection. The spinach tapas plate was just okay and the quesadilla was fine, but nothing to go crazy for. All-around a nice little romantic place in the middle of nowhere.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/6/2009
    excellent wine list, if a bit pricey for some of the more exotic wines. had the $40 malbec off the main wine list (also sold by the glass) and it was phenomenal... well worth it, as it seemed to complement all my dishes. excellent service - i never felt crowded, just well attended to. the food: i debated ordering a main course, but ended up going with several rounds of tapas, which turned out to be the right decision. my favorites: the adamame to start, the tuna tartar, the lamb, and the salmon. the lamb was $15 for 2... if you order the main course lamb, it's $30 for 6. when making the reservation, request a quiet table for a little more of an intimate setting.
