I was very pleased at how thoughtful the staff were when setting up our table in a manner decorated for my boyfriend's birthday. The souffles we ordered were divine and it was very hard to decide which to try since it was our first (though certainly not last) time dining here. As a transplant from the DFW metroplex, I'm kicking myself for not trying out this franchise sooner!

with reasonable prices (but not inexpensive).

I was curious to try the souffles. I am French and my mother was an outstanding cook who talked me and my sister how to cook. I know that it was next to impossible for a restaurant to be able to make a real soufflé. This was not a real soufflé and it was disappointing. The outside was too thick and dry, the cheese was over powering and the whole thing too salty. I could barely ate half of it.
However, the artichoke was excellent and the sandwich of the party at my table was also good.
It was a bit pricey but the service was excellent and the ambiance very pleasant.
I may return.

will return again but table not ready for us and they kept asking us to wait. We were there at 11 and had a reservation at 11 am but they kept telling us the staff was in a meeting and could not seat us. This probably went on for 15 or so minutes. Food excellent. Cute place. Also, felt rushed in the end to turn the table. After paying a high price for lunch did not really appreciate that.

We came here this evening for dessert for my husbands birthday. The ambience of the restaurant, outstanding service, attention to detail, and quality of soufflé is more than 5 stars. I’m sad we didn’t come here for dinner and only had dessert. Our experience is worth coming back to try the entire experience very very soon!

Based on my first visit, I decided to bring my husband to Rise for his birthday dinner and it was just as excellent the second time around. We enjoyed marshmallow soup, a cheese tray, our entree's and a banana foster souffle for dessert. Everything was delicious! They even gave my husband a happy birthday welcome and of course a candle with desert. We had a wonderful time!

This is a niche restaurant, and the options outside of souffle are limited. Having said that, the service was friendly and flexible. The souffles were good, but a savory souffle and then a dessert souffle is just a bit too much souffle for a meal.
