Great ambiance. Amazing meal choices. Neighborhood gem.
The chicken and waffles was their feature dish but had alot of breading in my opinion
Fantastic oysters for starters.....and always the French fries are the best with any entree!
Great place! Duck and steak and frites are amazing
We made an 8:15pm reservation and didn't get seated until almost 9pm. There were many other diners with reservations waiting along with us. The food wasn't great once we were finally able to eat. My husband's steak had been sitting for quite a while before being served. The duck and pinto beans I ordered were quite salty.
Mandolin never disappoints to meet all expectations!
Absolutely loved the vibe and decor of this restaurant. Our service was excellent. The bread service was great; small corn muffins and freshly made bread, perfect! My daughters split the chicken and waffles and loved it. My friend and I split the beet salad which was very good. The shrimp toast was a huge disappointment. We didn't realize the shrimp would be chilled. The menu said poached so I guess I assumed room temp or slightly warm? It just didn't work. Finished with caramel cake which was fabulous!
Fantastic all around. Great food, service and ambiance. One of our go-to restaurants in Raleigh!
Waiter was superbly helpful in helping us with menu and venue questions. This was our first time here. Heavy farm-to-table approach with food coming from the chef's garden and accentuated by the jars of pickled veggies prominently diaplayed.
Food, music, and service by Kathy were awesome!
Mandolin was the top-rated restaurant on OpenTable. I can see why. It earned the spot. While I can think of many other very good options that are equally as nice, tough to think of a better spot out. Food was perfectly cooked, flavorful (if a bit salty at first), and the wine list was full of affordable but good-tasting options (we tried three, all were great). Perfect date night spot.
Very good food and excellent service. We will add to our rotation for certain.
Mandolin was great! Food was yummy and a quite atmosphere.
Couldnt fault anything. Worth paying up for. Fantastic selection of wine
I have been to this restaurant multiple times but this time they had duck on the menu and I was the only one to order it between three of us. Immediately after eating the duck, I got sick. Please note that I asked for it well done so I am afraid that the meat went bad in the fridge or something happened to it.
Food was great. We had the chicken and waffle entree and steak frites...both delicious. Wasn't a big fan of the Chipotle Worcestshire sauce that accompanied the steak. Mandolin fries were wonderful. Broccoli rabe were good. Although food portions were enough for a meal...I felt they were smallish for the price paid. Also had the tuna tartare app which was tasty...loved flavors with the mango and basil. Videri chocolate soufflé awesome as well.
Food was excellent! Service was slower than normal but expected because of holiday.
Excellent service and atmosphere. The staff at Mandolin made sure that all of our needs were met. Thank you!
We went for Valentine Brunch. The food was so delicious. The tables were spaced well, lots of room between. All staff was masked correctly, all patrons masked when they got up from the table. It was clean and delicious.
Perfect place for a date. The staff is very courteous and the food is really flavorful. I would highly recommend the place.
Great food, service, and experience! Would definitely return.
We were a bit surprised that we had to wait to be seated since we had reservations for a prix fixe dinner being served to limited numbers of diners. However, we also realize this was a special occasion when more than usual numbers of in person diners needed to be accommodated along with the robust take out orders that were being provided.
It was fantastic! We will definitely be coming back.
You simply cannot have a bad meal here. Food I typically don’t enjoy, they somehow make delicious. Every bite is a new different and wonderful experience.
Had the fixed price Valentine's Day menu. The food was outstanding, the potions about the right size, and the service was very good. There was also suitable distance between tables to make us COVID-comfortable. A little pricey but expected given that it was a special holiday. Overall a great experience.
Excellent as always.
Went for Valentines' Dinner. Was absolutely fantastic, service was stellar. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and need to go back on a regular basis
The valentines menu was excellent and a good value. The chef picked two entrees that most people can’t make at home and paired it with delicious soup and salad.
And the videri soufflé was something else.
We enjoyed an excellent brunch at Mandolin and look forward to returning many times in the future!
My first time coming here and I will definitely be coming back. Great food and great service
Always love Mandolin and the ambiance there. So peaceful, yet upbeat. The food is always fresh and you can taste the quality that goes into preparing it. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating!
Great service and even better food.
Even with COVID-19, you guys come through! The tables were separated appropriately but not isolated. All the waiters were masked and I felt limited contact but not ignored. Very well done in this crazy time. The food was excellent as always, the ham chowder was outstanding!
The ribeye steak was 32 oz. It's a monster of a steak and didn't dissapoint
We went to The Mandolin with the family to celebrate my son's 18th birthday. The food was elegant. Our server was lovely. The entire evening was great.
Food was amazing! Pork belly Service was great!
Excellent farm-to-table food in Raleigh. Delicious food and great service. The restaurant is taking great care during the pandemic. I am glad to see them doing well.
Mandolin was amazing! The food is such a unique combination of classic foods with a twist! The ambiance was inviting, eccletic yet and cozily social distanced. This restaurant is a must for anyone in the area looking for great food in a cozy environment.
One of my favorite restaurants! Always a pleasant experience. Great wine list and great food!
Excellent experience with great service from Matt, our waiter.
