This was my first time at this Restaurant Born and Raised. It took 4 weeks for a reservation and our reservation time was 6:45. We arrived early at 6:40 was being seated in a booth in the very back right next to where the servers station is , I refused that table so we did get a nicer table . The food was ok , not as great as I expected . Our waiter was very nice but there was wayyyy to much time between our salad course and our main course . Very very disappointing . We did not get our steak served until 8:45 Thats 2 hours after we sat down at our table and over an hour after our salad . Needless to say I will not be in any hurry to go back to this restaurant . So disappointed . So many other great steak restaurant’s to choose from .

What amazing food and a beautiful space. I loved the flowers climbing up the ceiling. The staff was on point, except our waiter was on Speed, as assessed by three medical providers.
I loved Kyle the Cesar Salad King. They have a fantastic wine list which included a wine from a hard to get winery in Alba.
The filet was done to perfection. It melted in my mouth.

This was our second visit to Born and Raised and it was better than the first. The Steak Sampler was incredible from start to finish and we love that the staff was very knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and very cool! We also had the dirty hash browns and they were just stupid good!! Thank you BAR!! Looking forward to our next visit.

Easily one of the best meals I've ever had. I ordered the filet with a blue cheese crust. My husband ordered the dry aged rib eye which he did enjoy but said that my filet was better, haha. But that's a taste preference, so nothing to do with how the food was prepared or anything. Ordered the bread, Mac and cheese, and fancy hash browns as side dishes and all were fanatic! And the Malbec was soooo smooth. Great meal! Totally worth waiting 3 weeks to get a table! The ambiance reminded me a bit of Great Gatsby. Very posh. The noise level was very loud, almost reminded me of a cafeteria. So that's probably the only negative I have to give it, but we didn't totally mind. I can't wait to go again!

We celebrated our anniversary here. The food, service, and ambiance were great! Classy but with an Edge. Cool "Great Gatsby" vibes. The 2nd floor is beautiful. Bathrooms are dope. It's definitely an experience!

Best steak I have ever had in my life. The service was extraordinary and the drinks were icing on the cake. The place isn’t for people looking to eat cheap but you get what you pay for!

I will definitely give Born and Raised another try. I think that they must be training new waitstaff because the service was a little uneven. Our first waiter was better than the second. Also, I ordered the bone in ribeye medium rare and though the steak was cooked to the correct temperature, I was surprised by how chewy the steak was. My wife had the bone in NY Strip and she really enjoyed it. The sides were delicious. We really enjoyed the Dirty Hashbrowns, the Charred Sweet Potatoes (amazing with the harissa), the homemade Banana Ice Cream (my favorite), and the cheesecake. In addition, the house old fashioned was excellent as was the Gibson.

This was the best dining experience we have had in a long time. The food was superb. We ordered the Japanese A5 Wagu and a New York strip. Also, the buttered lobster and macaroni and cheese. Outstanding.

The food was great, the service was great... but why is the music so loud that we can't speak to our wait staff? I left with a headache from the noise which puts a damper on the evening. She couldn't hear us, we couldn't hear each other. We were upstairs under the roof... so I assume they were cranking it so those truly "outside" could hear it... but at the expense of other diners/ customers- find a better way.

I booked 1 month in advance to sit upstairs and when we came, we were shown to a small downtowns table close to the entrance. Rather disappointing in that seating with the 1 month notice. Definitely book 2+ in advance to sit upstairs. Otherwise the food was great. Especially the meat.

I had the steak Diane and it was too sweet and rich. My kids loved their filet and the sides were wonderful. Tried to order a Bloody Mary and the waiter said they don't make them. Crazy because they have one of the largest selections of alcohol I have seen in a bar.

Ambience is terrific. Views of downtown pretty. Beef was good, cooked just as we asked. Veggies and sides nothing to write home about, but good accompaniment to meat. Beautifully presented. Service very good.
