    Very good. Elegant room. Been for lunch a few times, never dinner. But have never missed enjoying it immensely.

    Not quite up to the original, but in a terrific location. Still well worth the visit, but perhaps in a smaller party than I had the last time.

    While the food was fine, neither my husband nor I found it to be the same quality as the other Rasika. And we were disappointed because we had taken a client for lunch that day and bragged about how it was one of the top in the city. But I must say we were let down.

    My wife and I dine here every Thanksgiving, and the experience is amazing, top to bottom. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and competent. And food and drink are excellent, bar none. Ambiance is so much more open and relaxed than the Penn Quarter Rasika as well.
