Crawford & Son
The service team at the bar were extremely knowledgeable, and the food was simply outstanding!
Amazing! Definitely will go back. Everything was fantastic
Pork cheeks. Yes!!!
Fabulous, as always!
As usual, every single thing we ordered was outstanding. The service was impeccable and the overall experience was a pure joy. It's a high-ticket dinner but worth every penny and (don't tell Scott but...) the portion size is easily twice as large as comparable high-end restaurants. These guys do it right, simple as that.
The service and food was amazing. Unique dishes and presentation.
Fantastic evening...interesting catfish presentation. Outstanding butternut squash soup!
Had heard good things - absolutely not disappointed! Honestly, one of the best meals we've had in Raleigh. Stuck to appetizers - Butternut squash soup was amazing; Hamachi Crudo was beautifully complex ( we actually ordered a second as dessert LOL) - scallops were also on point. Very attentive, helpful service without going over the top. If I had to offer any criticism is that it's a pretty loud place - could use some sound absorbing on the roof. Otherwise a near perfect dining experience. Will be back for sure!
so damn good going to go back real soon it was amazing
Food was incredible! They definitely encourage you to sit and enjoy and don’t try to rush you at all
Exceeded my expectations!
The food here is delicious! It's a little pricy, but so worth it. Make reservations ahead of time.
Wonderful, as usual!
I will keep it simple. This was the best meal we've ever had dining out in Raleigh. No need to get specific with details of the food as the menu at C&S changes with the seasons. Well done Chef Crawford and crew!
The food was superbly prepared and was an excellent all-around dining experience. It was nice to have Jones von Drehle available with our dinner choices as well.
I’d patiently waited to get a reservation for Crawford and Son and was not at all dissatisfied with the service, food or the ambience of the place.
I half an excellent butternut squash soup with crabmeat, followed by a very satisfying crunchy catfish filet in a fine shrimp and potato chowder as an entree
The house made dinner rolls were stunning.
The food was amazing! A very nice night. Our sons, who left today for other parts of the world, enjoyed their food immensely.
Incredible experience. Can’t wait to return!
Always great food. We also really liked the portion sizes. Some fine dining restaurants have smaller portions, but Crawford & Son serves ample portions.
Overall a very nice experience. Tables are tight and it is a little loud... but the food is great.
A true gem with outstanding food. If you like a non-stuffy, down to earth restaurant environment coupled with first class gourmet food and service this restaurant will easily meet your needs. The service was quite seamless and it was obvious that all of the service staff were coordinating and supporting each other. At one point, even someone from the kitchen wearing a apron served one of our courses. I feel the prices are reasonable for the quality and inventive cooking offered.
It is no surprise that Crawford & Son is among the highest rated restaurants in Raleigh on OpenTable and among the highest of all of OpenTable's cities in the U.S.
The only complaint I could even offer is that parking can be a bit challenging since all parking is on street but I did not have much difficulty finding a place.
This is a super cute space with amazing food! The scallops were my favorite
Excellent food and service
Celebrating the holidays with family (had made reservations weeks in advance). We ordered every entree, and every one was stellar! Inventive, fresh and flavorful, really in a class by itself! Appetizers and desserts didn’t disappoint. Attentive service. Crawford & Son really checks all the boxes. We can’t wait to go again!
Bar seating; bartender was wonderful.
Food definitely lived up to its reputation!
The hostess was not very friendly. I did not realize bar seating meant sitting at the bar. The food was exceptional chef prepared, each dish was prepared with herbs and delicious.
Fantastic food! Dessert was just incredible. Wonderful service from M. Axelrod as well.
Wonderful flavors, nice presentation and great service!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere worthy of all of the great reviews!
Definitely a couple's place. Our favorite restaurant in Raleigh!!
Quite simply, the best meal we have ever had. Blown away by the perfection to which our meals were prepared.
Seated right away on time. It was a little cold as the door was held open for the line to get in. Service was great and attentive. Food was delicious but entree options are very limited which I’m sure adds to the quality of what is available. Price was very reasonable for the quality.
Excellent across the board. Delicious inventive food
Best meal I’ve ever had! Waiter very knowledgeable about the wine selection.
Service is amazing! Makes the food even that much better, we try & copy the recipes at home but they never compare!
Excellent food and service. Especially enjoyed the pear desert. Parking is difficult.
The food just wasn’t that good. Three out of four of our party thought their meal was average to bad. I’ve frequented Garland, Death & Taxes, Stanbury, Hummingbird, and the old Standard Food. All provided delicious, creative, expertly cooked and presented meals. C&S was a disappointment. However, the drinks were good. My husband enjoyed his scallops and brussel sprouts. The short rib bolognese my son had was not well seasoned and was overpowering. My pork cheeks tasted like processed meat. My daughter had the chicken which was fine. The apple cake dessert was cloying. Sorry! Staff was very attentive and professional. Might go to the bar.
My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and we were thrilled that we chose Crawford and Son for the occasion. The food was fantastic and mixed various flavors and textures to give plates that were not only excellent, but truly unique.
On the service side the maximum rating available is five stars which they exceeded and thus redefined. Both the wait staff and management were incredibly attentive, helped us make the right selections, and explained the inspiration behind the restaurant the recipes.
It was a delightful experience, we will be back!
