    The food was okay but not outstanding. I thought the portions could have been bigger and that the food should have had more taste. I have had similar meals at other restaurants and thought that this place was a notch below. I may give it one more try in the future to see if the menu changes at all.

    Weird dining experience. Wait staff hovered over table and took away salad while my wife still had fork in her hand and bread without asking (advertising said we'd want it to sop up all the sauce). They even took my meal and boxed up while my wife was still eating. This would all seem like they were rushing us out the door, but the restaurant was nearly empty and we sat at a completely empty table for 15 minutes waiting for a check. Just weird experience.

    They took us earlier than our reservations and didn't make us wait. Staff was friendly. Food came out at reasonable times. Baked penne was delicious!

    My husband and I had a fabulous meal at Raso's. Our waitress Juliana was wonderful, attentive but not smothering, and the food was fantastic. Calamari and the caprese salad were great apps and then we split the sirloin for dinner - it was a big enough meal for 2. We'll definitely return.

    Went on a Saturday for lunch. Not too crowded, decent bar scene. Plenty of options on the lunch menu. Food came out fairly quickly too.

    Phenomenal service, food, and overall beautiful environment... We have officially become repeat customers after this first visit... Bread with oil dip was a perfect start off and we ordered their spicy wings and we were given more bread which was a perfect go along with the chicken...

  • The food just wasn't that

    The food just wasn't that good. I had read another review and thought it would be a "diamond in the rough", but ir really wasn't. My fish was fresh, and that was the only good thing about it. The pasta sauce on the special tasted like out of a jar! To me that is not acceptable, I could just do that at home!

    Raso's is a local place that has excellent food. A kind of place, that when you go you always meet someone that you know & maybe you haven't seen for a while. It's a fun place, they have a great staff It's like one big happy family. They have the best steak,you can compare it to any big restaurant in Boston but not as expensive. The bar is awesome & always jumping & great Martini's.

    I love this place. It's on Mystic Ave in Medford - which is a plus. There are no lines and the food is decent. Nice martini selection and good local people. Wait staff is very attentive and professional.

  • Have you seen my waiter ?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/20/2013
    Our waiter was personable enough, but he really seemed elsewhere. Mainly because he was. I asked for a glass of Merlot with my dinner. My dinner was almost half gone before I got my wine. Yeah, I'm sorry too. I will go back most definitly the food is very good, varied menu, and the prices keep it a good value . Don M

    My fiance had seen Raso's on the Phantom Gourmet about a year ago. One of their specials was the Veal Parm. We went there to celebrate a birthday. It is casual dress. Great for both romantic dinner or family evening out. From the time we arrived, the service was excellent. The young girl who seated us was very accommodating. Our waiter, Sean, was fantastic. A great asset to the restaurant. He made the entire dining experience enjoyable!! The Veal Parm was outstanding. We also placed an order to go. The item was not on the menu, but the Chef made it up special for us!! I would highly recommend Raso's. We would definitely go back.
