Amazing service very Throe on explaining the menus and drinks came here for an 18th birthday gave us a card and everything 100% recommend it was 7 of us and total of everything including drinks salad and steak plus dessert was amazing!!
Thank you so much for an amazing experience again and of course danielle was my server and she did amazing making my friends feel welcomed and happy with our meal. Thank you! Favorite restaurant in little Italy!
Service and food was all excellent. No complaints! We had a great time celebrating a birthday!
Amazing everything. Jared was the best server.
Truffles were not fresh, hence no flavor or smell. The staff was very nice and took them off of our bill.
The steaks were all cooked perfectly. However the side dishes were too greasy. Overall butter is great but it seemed like too much butter was used in everything. More than needed.
The deserts were delicious.
Born and Raised is now our favorite restaurant. The food in outstanding - extremely great quality, tender steaks, amazing flavor. The drinks are worth every penny, a sommelier even came to our table when we were curious about the best drink to pair with our meal.
The ambience and setting is so unique, elegant, and fun. The beauty in the details of the table side bar cart, bathroom stalls, and table setting was extravagant.
The service was the best we’re experienced. The friendly and approachable staff were also very knowledgeable and attentive.
BAR is unlike any dining experience in San Diego!
Great birthday experience
Born and Raised was exactly what I expected it to be. The steak was GREAT! the sides, however, were very rich which made it hard to enjoy. The meal felt very heavy. Having some liter sides would have helped. Even the Caesar salad was rich.
The ambiance was beautiful. Definitely a wonderful atmosphere to enjoy your premium dinner. One note is the base of the tables are MASSIVE. So large, that my husband couldn't sit comfortably due to the lack of leg/foot room.
The service was lacking. There was a lot of wait staff walking around but our waiter never came over to make sure our food was cooked to our expectations or if we were enjoying our drinks... All he did was come over and take our order. If we needed anything I had to flag him down. For this price point, I expect exceptional service... The first glass of Nebbiolo wine tasted as though the bottle had been open for several days but because our waiter never came over to ask how the drinks were after he delivered them, I was stuck with it. When our steaks came out, I expected him to come over and ask if we wanted to order another drink (we were both nearing the end of our glasses and it is typical of the wait staff to assume that you are going to pair your steak dinner with something different than the appetizers...) but he never came over. I flagged him down to get a heftier glass of wine to pair with the steak but it was delivered after I was already full...
This group of restaurants typically has this "I'm to cool to be bothered by you wanting to order things from me (the server)" mentality and is what I expected from here, however, I am disappointed that my expectations were not exceeded. At this price point, they should be offering amazing service (not just tableside performances).
As I told my friends afterward... we don't regret going... but we probably won't go back. At that price point, we can get a similar quality steak and great atmosphere plus better service at many other places...
Celebrated our 10yr anniversary here..... really good food, good service and really cute place. We will be back!!!
Did not disappoint. Will go back again. Every dish was delicious and service was superb.
The food and service was exactly what you pay for....top of the line. One the top 3 steaks I have ever had👍
Service was awesome and food was amazing. Highly recommended!
No words can describe just how amazing the ambiance and architecture are in this restaurant. From the moment we had pre-dinner cocktails at the rooftop bar, took in the skyline of Little Italy to the promo seating at our dinner table , where the decor and service continued to impress. Though my husband thought the beer selection could be broadened , I was happy with wine choices, both in genre and price. The steaks were incredible—with the filet eclipsing the New York and pleasantly surprised by the tastiness of my daughters prime rib. The only disappointment was the sides—potatoes were ho-hum and the selection of veggies was minimal( mushrooms very good, broccoli bland)
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant, though as it is pricey , best reserved for special occasions. If I lived closer i would frequent the rooftop bar
Date night was special from the moment we met with the host staff and were seated on time. The interior design was unexpected and the rolling carts and service impeccable! Food was amazing! Wonderful location to end the night as a rooftop bar and a night-cap closed the deal! Yes!
Truly a wonderful dining experience, helpful, informative staff and the food is amazing.
went for our four year anniversary and have been highly recommending our experience to
our friends. Before I forget, the design is incredible.
Food not great
The service was outstanding. The tableside service was an added treat and the ambience was so fun and lively, yet comfortable at the same time. The food was good to the last bite.
Waited for table longer than expected. Drink at bar was average even though it was a signature. Service was attentive but I sat too long before being greeted. Food was simply average. Nothing was as spectacular as I had expected. No Rose by glass? Outstanding ambiance and design. Service was simply what I could get at any steakhouse and I was anticipating more.
The service was outstanding. My fiancée and I were there celebrating our engagement, and the staff were very excited for us and continually congratulated us for the occasion. We got the snails, dry-aged ribeye, 3-oz of Japanese wagyu, and the cheesecake for dessert. Over all, it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Our waitress, Rachel, was wonderful.
Very decorative restaurant with a hip-hop flair. The steaks are amazing. Great place for a special date.
Very cool atmosphere in this restaurant, we had a reservation for inside - downstairs. The restaurant was fairly empty however we were sat at the front door. We asked to move but were told they were full. 2 hours later no one else was seated toward the back of the restaurant. The staff was inexperienced - example. They have a very nice option for tableside martin/manhattans. We ordered this and the young gentlemen who came to make the martini had no olives and had never made a martini with a lemon twist. When we went to order the appetizer the waiter told us that the chef prefers you put your entire order in at one time, ie, no enjoying your drinks and apps while you decide on your meal - it is necessary to order every course at one time. The food arrived, appetizer was the crudo - incredible. The steaks were good not great and the "San Diego fresh catch" was sole that was not fresh or caught in San Diego, which was told to us by another waiter. During dinner we ordered cocktails that included vodka/tonic with lemon. The next waiter (all different) broght the drink with no lemon or lime. We asked for lemon and they brought lemon halves to squeeze on the sole, I said this is for the drink no the food. Ridiculous this lemon thing with them. Finally after spending $450 with tip - this is a very expensive restaurant, the maitre d actually came over to ask us to keep it down - LOL. We could not believe it, there was no one else there.
Overall the restaurant is beautiful, staff is horrible, no good top shelf alcohol, food was very salty and overpriced and without ambiance they would be closed. Sham because they own other restaurants and bars that are so much better. Go for a drink on the rooftop bar - that is great. Do not waste time and money with bad staff and overpriced bad food. Good luck!
Sat outdoors. Some street noise. Service was very good.
Jackie and Josh were awesome. They always take care of us when we dine there
Fantastic as always! Ambiance is fabulous. Steak is cooked to perfection. Table side Caesar was delicious
The food varied from excellent to good. The service was excellent. However, the noise level was beyond anyone's capacity to be heard without shouting. It was a pleasure to walk outside after dinner and be in a quiet place.
Furthermore, our table was near the front door which was open most of the time and thus we had to keep our jackets on to remain comfortable. It was quite cool outside.
Because of the noise level and cool draft on us, I can only rate the restaurant fair and not a good value based on the large amount of money we spent (over $100 per person).
phenomenal service and food to match. Great for any occasion or no occasion at all.
Love that the place is high end with a relaxed vibe. The bar staff is wearing a dress shirt, bow tie then shorts. Then there are pictures of rappers on the wall and a bit of raunchiness in the bathrooms. The staff is great, the drinks are good and the food was amazing. Dessert could be better though.
It was a nice restaurant and the staff were kind. What I didn’t like was when I arrived at 445 for a 5 o’clock reservation, they told us they will not seat us until 5. Fine. We hung out in the bar area with everyone else and then we didn’t get seated until 5:10, while others who walked in were seated right away. Should I be late for my reservation next time?...
Couldn't be better ! Service was outstanding ...as was the food and ambiance. Absolutely beautiful space.
Tableside Caesar a delight to watch ....and delicious ! We had 3 different entrees and everybody enjoyed their meal..........tremendously. Can't wait to return !
Reservations were at 6:15. We didn’t leave until 11:30. The waiter Brogden was non attentive and was at least 15 minutes between each course and 40 min before our 1st course. I go at least once a month and love the place and food. Will keep on going back. Thanks
Ordered a steak medium rare. Got a piece of boot leather (well done). It was corrected and replaced but it’s a mistake I would expect at Applebee’s, not a premium steakhouse. There are better places to go at these prices
Amazing food, service and place!!
Wonderful and thoughtful— enjoyed the food and ambiance. Will return for special occasions! Thank you
Born and Raised was an amazing experience, we went for my boyfriend's birthday and they really went above and beyond for him, everyone that serviced us acknowledged his birthday and the special treat at the end was wonderful. Every employee we encountered was amazing especially our server he is so knowledgeable on the food and the excitement he had bringing desert to my boyfriend just really made our experience so special. Thank you so much BAR!
Amazing ambience, great food, service, and amazing cocktails!
Fantastic! Absolutely loved the place. Their food was delicious and wait staff impeccable.
Celebrated our 1st Anniversary and NYE
Amazing atmosphere. Jerrod was an amazing server. Food was wonderful definitely enhanced by the surroundings.
I ordered a filet and requested they box up the remainder. They boxed up my husband’s steak and did not include mine. After bringing this to their attention, they have continued to disregard it.
