Service took a little long but the cocktails were good so I forgive. But other people may not be so forgiving.

Very touristy, slow service, not a great vibe. The ambiance is cool but it is a tourist trap. Very fitting for a mall I guess but definitely not a hot spot to check out on a night out.

The staff here are not friendly. The waitress took our order, did not write it down, had to come back twice to ask what we ordered. Our order consisted of three drinks. She was never friendly. The person who greets you at the door was not friendly. The drinks are expensive. The decor was great

What a great idea! This place just looks like a neat little place to buy good bottles of alcohol, but behind the rotating fireplace is a really cool cocktail bar with a huge variety of drinks. It's on par, price-wise with similar cocktail bars ( $10 to $15), though they do have a $790 old fashioned if you have the wallet.

Will definitely come here again.

Overall great cocktails and polite staff. I don't think the fireplace door is doing enough for the atmosphere to warrant the inconvenience of having it

I love the concept and the bar was beautiful with a great atmosphere. While we had a reservation and were sat by the hostess, we were asked and accused of taking a table (reservations are tables walk ins are bar only) 5 times. I’ve been in the industry for years and am not one to care or complain but it made it so awkward for our party and was just ridiculous. Get it together, if they had communicated with one another we would not have been bothered by several people.

After reading reviews where other customers mentioned that service was sometimes slow and that it was often very busy, we made a reservation for early in the evening and brought a fill-in-the-blank journal we’ve been meaning to work on to pass the time. We found that there was no wait for our table and that service was very friendly and fast. As the evening went on and the bar became much more crowded, the time it took for our drinks to come out did increase but we barely noticed as we had our book to entertain us. At one point, the server brought us a free drink in addition to one we had ordered because they had accidentally confused our order. Will never complain about a free drink!
All the drinks we ordered were tasty but some had more unique flavor than others. For example, I thought my winter-special drink, the Senora Señora, was a little bland for how interesting the description had been but the other drinks lived up to their descriptions, especially the Twilight Samurai.

The decor is incredible and amazingly detailed and I would go back just for the experience of stepping back to another time period except with better drinks and more comfortable clothing.

You asked. I have gone 3 times hoping each time the experience will improve but it gets worse.

There are so many Great Speakeasies in SD don’t settle. The ambiance is great and after our last visit that’s it. They need to improve their cocktails, not true craft cocktails just recipes. We could at least get wine or whiskey and enjoy the environment. We went on NYE very early not busy at all and our server was rude, did not smile, welcome us or even check in to see how we were. As I mentioned, so my other amazing bars to go for great cocktails and most of all service. We tried.

Beautiful bar with excellent service and very interesting drinks Food not served here not even peanuts or pretzels. Great place for a special occasion such as a birthday. High energy. Noisy. Drinks are pricey but considering the ambiance this is understandable. Highly recommended

So far every time I have been the service has been excellent. I'm happy that the servers are happy to work there. It makes the experience 100 times better when servers enjoy adding to the unique experience that is Raised by Wolves.

The person who checked us in, was happy-Greeted us with a smile and managed the ever crazy line of walk ins. Make a reservation...if you want to have a seat.

What a great spot! The cocktails were well made, the selection expansive, and our server, Stephanie, was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. This is the type of bar I’d choose to take friends and family to for a special occasion. We were, in fact, celebrating two birthdays and Raised by Wolves really made it memorable.

We found Raised By Wolves by walking in to what we thought was just a fancy liquor store. Turns out it was much more! Amazing decor and detail in the bar, and sooner really yummy creative cocktails. Would definitely recommend! We had a reservation when we went on a Friday night and didn't have to wait at all :)
