I have eaten at Mandolin many times. The service is always spot on. This was a Saturday brunch, and the food was less than mediocre. The salad was over dressed, the chicken over breaded and cold, which was unexpected. The wine, recommended by our server, was outstanding. I will go back, but found this visit really disappointing.
Awesome as always
Pork chop was not very good ie: very tough!!
Our server was great and helped us through our first time there. Went through specials and let us know the most popular dishes. Ended up with the Oysters and Shrimp Toast apps, Braised Short Rib and Seared Pork Chop entrées and Soufflé dessert. Ambiance was great, romantic setting but casual at the same time. Would definitely like to go back again.
One of our favorite restaurants in the triangle. Love the farm fresh foods and the house churned butter. Their biscuits are awesome and they serve organic Boulted bread! What’s not to love?
Fantastic as usual!
Good is always stellar. Honestly, should be able to swap home fries for grits with breakfast entrees!! This is s goodie place so you should uphold such a choice.
I had a great experience dining at Mandolin. Went for a date and we were definitely satisfied with the food and overall service of the restaurant. It’s in a neat spot in Raleigh and we will definitely be back. It was only my second time coming to Raleigh and this place made it worth while. I highly recommend!
Not a great place for intimate conversation. The noise level was incredibly high, however, the food and service were good.
The overall experience was very good, but the noise level was very high, and unpleasant.
This is my new favorite place. I can’t wait to come here on date night, any night, birthday night!!! LOVE!!!!
Nicely prepared food all made in house, decent cocktail, good coffee. Service was good also.
Good experience. Room was cold though. Maybe floor tiles doesnt help kipping dining room warm enough in winter.
The Sunday brunch has become consistently excellent- fresh-squeezed orange juice mimosas and a solid Bloody Mary. The fried chicken biscuit is right up there with AC’s Mrs. Beasleys, and the shrimp and grits is probably about as good as this can be.
Very nice meal, our waiter was exceptional
Just always delicious food and superb service! One of our most favorite restaurants!!
We enjoyed our oysters on the half shell as well as the beef. However, we felt like there wasn't a great selection of sides - potatoes and broccoli rabe was it. We're not big potato lovers and wanted something more interesting. We were disappointed in our experience with the wine. Again, seemed like they would have a bigger selection and provide more direction by asking what we wanted and making recommendations. I think our server was new and he wasn't very inquisitive, either with us or asking his colleagues whether or not the chef might be willing to do something different for us. This was my first time at Mandolin but my date had been before and liked it. We both left saying we should have gone to Glenwood Grill where we sort of know what to expect - consistently good solid food for a lot less. I'll admit that I'm a tough customer having just moved from California.
Top quality food and service.
The food was OK. The beet salad was minuscule the sides with my short ribs were not cooked. my wife’s dinner was good. The price is a bit steep for what it is, especially the wines by the glass.
As always the chocolate soufflé is delicious.
My husband and I went to Mandolin for dinner on Christmas Eve and it was lovely. The food was phenomenal and the ambience was perfect for a quiet holiday dinner. We will definitely be returning!
Excellent meal in this neighborhood gem.
Christmas gathering- good is always great - service from Doug was excellent
Amazing evening. Food was awesome. Service was exceptional. Very memorable birthday celebration.
Love their chicken and waffles, and the braised chicken leg my wife liked. Rated value down a notch because prices for wine, $18 for a 6oz glass of Cab, is way too high.
Great Graduation Dinner!
We celebrate our 13 anniversary and was a really great experience, the food was amazing we had the fried oyster, pork chop and salad and everything taste great, the ambiance was pretty good too. We would definitely will be back soon.
I am elated to have found this jewel! We made the reservation for birthday brunch and it was phenomenal. Everything was perfect. I had the Smoked Sunburst Trout Florentine. Others in my party had the Short Rib Hash, Pork Madame and Joyce Farms Fried Chicken Biscuits.
Excellent food and excellent service. Thanks!!
Great food , ambiance and energy! Our waiter was awesome’ I forgot her name but she was super southern .... my boyfriend had chicken and waffles and I had pork chops... would highly highly recommend for date night! I will be back there next visit to Raleigh! Compliments to the award winning chef!
The noise level was unbearable. Otherwise the service and food were great.
The food at Mandolin is absolutely spectacular. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal the first time I went, and I thoroughly enjoyed it the second time around. The attention to detail, the flavor, the thought and the preparation that goes into each dish makes Mandolin one of a kind.
Quiet Monday evening with great service and attention from the staff. Food was spot on. I’ll be going back.
Mandolin never, ever disappoints! And don't miss the chicken!....or the chocolate souffle!
Consistently great, we always have wonderful service and the food is delicious!
I ordered a steak. Seeing that all other items on the menu were $20-$30, I did not expect the steak (presented as a special) would be $80 when the bill came. Would not have had an issue with it if our waiter had told me that up front. The food was still great, but somehow wasn't as quite as good as when we went last year.
Took a chance and went somewhere new. It was wonderful. Our waiter explained the history to us which was very interesting. The food and drinks were to die for. The service was excellent. Already booked our second reservations.
Happy to have a fabulous place to go on a Sunday. Excellent service and options for all tastes. Loved the Videri Chocolate Souffle.
Excellent service. Not overly crowded. Solid diversity of selections.
