We received great service from Stephanie and the drinks were amazing. The whole set up is super cool and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Will definitely be back soon!

P.S. Only gave food 5 stars because I couldn't submit the review without it. This particular bar does not serve food.

Great spot! Well worth the drive! Strong drinks but no food so it's a good after or before dinner spot. Lots of restaurants in the surrounding area so no need to drive anywhere else.

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 :)

Definitely a novel experience. The drinks were overpriced, I guess that's what you get for the ambiance. I guess if you haven't been to a speakeasy type lounge this would be worth visiting for sure since the entrance is pretty much like a Disneyland haunted mansion entrance lol. But yeah, the drinks were good but not great.

What a great place! The service and drinks were excellent, the venue was unique and fun, the crowd was great, and the employees who worked there were fantastic. I was especially impressed with the employees, all of whom were consistently professional, efficient, nice and accommodating in a very busy environment. Their good approaches and attitudes, along with well-made drinks and an unusual venue, make this bar far superior to others here in So Cal and elsewhere.

Great as any other CH Projects group restaurants. Although, my only complaint is that they need to hire more people because the place is always understaffed.

Went for drinks with friends. Cool room and vibe. Pretty noisy even on a somewhat slow Sunday evening. Had to seek out server after a wait of about 30 minutes. Drinks were good and room is real Art nouveau. Fun place for a drink or two—no food available at all.

Cool interior with “secret” revolving door to enter. Decent cocktail list though some are on the pricey end and taste-wise a few are hit or miss. Busy and loud on a Friday night. Reservations recommended—at 7:30 pm on Friday the line was about 25 people. Tables are small and intimate. Giant circular bar looks neat, along with the restrooms!

Very fun and unique bar setting and decor. Excellent choice of fancy drinks and also good basics as to your preference.
No food at all available.
Bar got noisier as night went on, even on a Tuesday evening. There are some walk-ins available but good crowd management with most reservations required.

It was very loud, the hostess didn’t check us in correctly and after our first drink tried to ask us to leave the table. Another waitress came and took our menu so we couldn’t even order another drink. We’ve been there before and had a much better experience.

No food, just drinks. Interesting cocktails. I avoided ones with too many different components. What I tried was very good -- better than you might guess from them ingredients.

Speakeasy inside the mall. Great place for a small group... probably not a good idea for a large party.
