We came so late to our reservation but our host was so kind to let us in still and sit by the bar. We absolutely loved our experience and every encounter with all the staff was absolutely exceptional. Food was great and we definitely want to be back to try more things when back in SD.

Our friends time being here and it was such an opulent establishment . The service staff are all so welcoming and attentive . Our server Christopher was amazing !! Such a great guy . He really knew how to ask any of our questions about food and drinks . He was even so kind to make us a reservation after dinner with their sister restaurant craft and commerce to get some drinks . He went well over beyond with his service . Dining here is a one of a kind experience and lives up to all the hype .

I was really looking forward dining here based on the reviews. Overall we were rather underwhelmed. The music was blaring so loud you could barely have a conversation and it’s dark enough you will need your phone flash light to read the menu. Steak tartare was very good, the scallops were just ok and very salty. My snails were good but my steak wasn’t anything to write home about. Mushrooms were excellent though. Overall wouldn’t go back.

We always have an absolutely incredible time at this restaurant. The food is insane! Our waiter, Trevor is one of the best we’ve ever experienced there. So professional, educated and detailed. We will definitely always ask to be served by Trevor in the future.

We had a reservation for 6-guests, the other night, yet 1-of our guests wanted to add 3-more at the very last minute. B&R was extremely gracious to accommodate this last minute request and Sarah A., our server, was amazing! She was kind, attentive, kept us happy and satisfied for the entire evening. The outstanding craft cocktails, food, beautiful ambiance and unique atmosphere caused even the four (4) of us who are in the industry to practically forget to let our server know, ahead of time, how we wanted to split up separate tabs. Again, Sarah A. didn't hesitate to work with us, made it happen and accommodated another last minute request with patience and grace! We really enjoyed our time there & were well taken care of :-)

We came to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

1. The waiter had a very strong BO smell that could be smelled from tables away. It was unbearable.
2. He asked us if we wanted an olive oil luge from our appetizer bone marrow. Not realizing it had alcohol or it would be an extra cost, we agreed. My husband tried it and stopped because he thought it was too much olive oil. He said it tasted acidic and like it had alcohol in it. When we got the bill, we were surprised there was an additional charge because it wasn’t mentioned. We looked it up online and it turns out it did have alcohol on it.
3. We ordered the bone marrow and escargot appetizer, A3 sampler, hashbrowns at the same time. We waited over 40 minutes between the appetizer and A3 sampler plate. The waiter said it was coming and 20 minutes later I asked about it and he apologized that he thought it was ready but he was mistaken.
4. Our experience as a whole was so off putting from the customer service that we couldn’t appreciate the food. Maybe it was just an off night but we were left disappointed.

The waiter called the the manager after the delay of the A3 and he was pleasant and apologized for the delay. He did comp our dessert but we left so disappointed.

Food was excellent. Table side salad prep was perfect - made to order. Steak and bread excellent. Server was friendly and helpful but the place was so busy we didn't get the proactive attention that should be provided by a high end restaurant like this. We sat downstairs and the noise level with music was too high. We could hardly hear each other.

Our server Colin was great and definitely elevated the experience for us. The ratatouille was phenomenal. I was afraid I wouldn’t have any good options as a vegetarian and it definitely exceeded my expectations. My friends loved their food and drinks as well. They got the Wagyu steak, rib eye and Cesar salad. All were great. We can’t wait to go back.

Caro, lugar bonito, le tiro una salsa un mesero a mi hijo, y este no se disculpo, pero el gerente salio en defensa y muy amable nos invito la cena. Al final fue un final malo. Pudiendo haber terminado genial. Con la única excepción del costo de los platillos y la poca variedad

Tough to get a reservation, but worth the wait. Food was excellent. Drinks amazing. Service was great. Started with the champagne cart - cool start to service. Shared the tableside Caesar - nothing remarkable, but presentation was fun. Dry aged Filet and wagyu were both spectacular. Highly recommend dirty hash browns. Green beans were good, but tough to compete with the rest of the meal. Had an espresso martini for dessert - great way to finish a really enjoyable meal. Social distancing done well with dividers between tables for more privacy/ambiance.

We went for my birthday. Everything was fabulous - food, service, ambiance. Everyone we met made a point to roll out the red carpet knowing it was a birthday. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or any time. Trevor, our waiter, explained the menu perfectly and made excellent recommendations. The general manager made our table-side to-die-for steak tartare and checked in with us after our meal. If you are thinking about Born & Raised, stop thinking and make your reservation!

It was so nice to see B&R thriving and it was just as good if not better since the last time I was there (March 2020 prior to shutdown) thank you for making my boyfriend’s first experience there so positive and it was great to celebrate our anniversary there! We will be back soon!
