Great restaurant and one one the best eating experiences I had in Raleigh. Truly impressed with the level of thought out into the details of every part of the menu. Would definitely recommend and also visit their sister restaurant next door.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we really enjoyed it. Great combination of delicious food in comfortable, relaxing environment. Limited menu can make it challenging for larger group, but we (3) did fine. Catfish was not as tasty as the beef short rib and the pork cheeks, but the presentation of the catfish in chowder was very creative. And the chowder was delicious. Seared scallops appetizer was awesome. Moose was moderate, so that is better than most places!!

Food was fabulous and the staff is so warm and friendly. I really enjoyed eating here. IT IS LOUD...tables are close together in an open space, so prepare for that. It's not the intimate date night we were expecting.

I was visiting from out of town for my birthday, and personally selected the restaurant . Having read so many positive reviews, I was exited to try it. The food was outstanding and our waitress (and other bar and wait staff) provided excellent service. The only negative is the hostess who greeted us. She never smiled once, or acknowledged that our party was there for a special occasion. Additionally, since my husband and I arrived 20 minutes before our reservation and ahead of the rest of our party, we asked if we could be seated at the (almost empty) bar before they arrived and initially, she refused. When I pushed back she begrudgingly seated us but made a point of saying that the seats she gave were the only ones available. Again, no one was there! When the rest of the party arrived, I went to be seated while my husband paid and she ran up to me to TELL, not ASK me to close out my bar bill. I told her we'd already taken care of it. Again, she wasn't very friendly and didn't smile. About an hour or so into dinner the bar finally filled up. Her actions could have ruined the evening if it weren't for the rest of the staff who went above and beyond. Clearly, this woman is not representative of the establishment; however, she does not make a favorable first impression. If she's not a relative, the ownership may want to rethink her role.

Generally a good dining experience.
Menu was difficult to read due to low lighting levels and typeface gradations.
Menu choices were limited and variation among selections was minimal.
By the glass wine prices were high and pours small, although selections were good.
Tortellini appetizer was marginal, madeira jus dominated flavors, tortellini did not provide the proper vehicle for the filling.
The chicken confit entre was quite good; portions were more than adequate with this rich dish.

Second time having the privilege of dining at C&S. Did not disappoint! Flavors were complex, yet all worked together. Pre-Dinner drinks wonderful (Riley's Grave 😈). Service was personal and attentive. Food was so perfectly done. My only complaint, if there is one, is the seating can be cramped, and not as private as I would like. Restaurant is somewhat on the small side. I'm old school, so to some that won't matter at all. So fortunate to have such culinary talent in Raleigh! Make a reservation early, and go for the food!!

Kitchen was off the night we went. The food was very slow coming out, which has never been our experience before. The server was attentive and the food at Crawford and Son is always excellent. It was crowded and got quite loud on occasion.

I enjoyed my meal, however the restaurant was incredibly noisy and very difficult to have a conversation. My suggestions would be: use less salt in the appetizers and entrees. I was uncomfortably thirsty for about 10 hours after the meal. Also include some green vegetable as sides. The additional sides were starches e.g. potato, zuchini bread pudding or wheat rolls.

Took my husband here for his birthday. Loved it all. Wheat rolls are sinful. I had the pork cheeks entree. So so tasty, and served with the creamiest cheddar grits. Nice crunch to the creamer peas. Can't wait to return.

We tried Crawford & Son for the first time in September 2019 after hearing a lot of good things about it, and it did not disappoint. Service was fantastic and the food/drinks were even better. Easily up there in the Bida Manda/Lantern/Oakleaf/Death & Taxes elite tier of restaurants in the Triangle. Also has the best bread at a restaurant I have ever had this side of the cornbread at Husk in Charleston. Really great space/atmosphere for either a special date or a needed nice meal out after a long week.
