Worst experience at a restaurant to date. After making our reservation a week ago we arrived to an extremely loud and full restaurant. We were told that they were running behind on tables which was fine, but then we proceeded to the bar to have a drink and could barely squeeze in to order something. After finally getting a drink we waited to be seated for dinner 45 minutes after our reservation time. But the worst part was that we were given the smallest table that was stuffed in the corner of the restaurant. So cramped that my boyfriend could barely squeeze through to sit down. Our waiter greeted us but was shouting to be heard over the noise from the bar. After everything we decided that this was not the place to spend our $300+ on dinner. Basically it’s the trendy bar scene vs. the high end steak house it’s aspiring to be but will never accomplish. Anyone with taste or class will realize very quickly that this establishment is a joke. Save your time and energy and go elsewhere.

Born and Raised is a must if you’re looking for a swanky night out. Mu boyfriend and I had a great time - getting drinks at the bar and then dinner after. The table side Caesar was the highlight. The snails were also amazing. Highly recommend!

The staff is welcoming and efficient. Our server, Andrew, was attentive and personable. The food is delicious and having the Caesar Salad and ice cream prepared at our table was a treat and very entertaining. We were given champagne to celebrate our anniversary and a personalized note from the manager. The ambiance is inviting and cozy. Dining at this beautiful restaurant made our evening so very special.

Beautiful interior and excellent service. It is a great place to make a good impression on a dining companion. The staff was very helpful and made every effort to make the experience memorable. However, the a la carte style menu is quite pricey, and for the expensive price of the dry aged 22 ounce bone in rib-eye steak, it was under cooked (rare rather than medium rare I ordered) and quite fatty. But.... I will try again since the place otherwise was great.

This was my second visit to Born & Raised.
Caviar service- Excellent.
Foie Gras- Was served without bread and it was warm and not hot. Such a dish needs to be served hot and accompanied with a vehicle such as toast, brioche, puff pastry, etc. to properly enjoy.
18 oz Ribeye- Excellent.
Dirty Hashbrowns- Excellent.
Smoked Leaks- Very one note, overpowered by excessive use of fennel.
Cheese Cake- Good.
Service- Excellent.
Overall, a very good dinning experience.

We celebrated my fiance's 30th birthday. I made reservations a week in advance, requesting a specific table. Once we arrived the host greeted us and confirmed the table we requested was available. Come to find out... There was another couple at our reserved table. I was very disappointed and actually made me sad that the restaurant overlooked the issue and made it worst by sticking us in a corner next to the side entrance. The food was good the waiters were amazing. But the host needs to learn how to manage their reservation and request to prevent from losing business.

Our server was great-professional and attentive. My aged rib eye was very tough and undercooked. Very, very disappointing particularly given the price and the fact that this is supposed to be a high end steak house.

They didn’t miss a detail when they put together this place. It’s amazing!! The bone in rib eye is unreal!! Never have I had more delicious leaks. Try them. Wow. They made us homemade ice cream at our table and it was a 10. It’s very loud, and it is $$$ But it’s also the BEST restaurant in SD.

We have eaten here multiple times and have always had a great experience, this time after an hour and a half sitting at the table our drinks had not been refilled and we only had received our first course and our waiter had not returned to our table since placing our first part of our food order. While we will probably visit again based on past experiences, this visit was really disappointing.

Overall...this place is a little overrated. We checked in early and were seated promptly in the corner of a long row of table space. The service was pretty good...water glasses smelled fishy...hard to ignore. Ordered steaks for our whole party and three different sides of potatoes. Food was ok...not amazing as expected. Another couple was squeezed next to us...made our conversation very uncomfortable. Desserts were good...carrot cake and a giant eclare. Hubby used the restroom and it was filled with cigarette smoke...two cigarettes in the toilet.

This restaurant is an experience. Expensive, yes--but not significantly more than the high end chain steakhouses (Ruth's, Flemmings, Donnovan's, etc.) and with way more panache. Dress up a little if you're going to spend this kind of coin. You'll enjoy it more.
