    Some of the best food I have ever had. I would highly recommend it. I ate there two days in a row and only regret i have is I wish I had went there sooner because they were only there for a limited time.

    Underwhelming, to say the least. I imagine that the patio was a nice spot in the summer/fall months, but the interior felt like what it is: eating in a a small boxcar & all of the tables are very small. Our server was definitely not one of the ones that people raved about, as he knew very little about basically anything we asked about & had to go check with the kitchen three separate times. Food was good, but nothing to rave about. No matter, the show has gone on now, to Sarasota they said.

    The registration process just to access the restaurant is a hassle and unnecessary. We were initially seated in an area with low side chairs that didn’t work with the table height so we asked to be seated at a regular table. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was excellent. I had the burger which didn’t include onion, lettuce and tomato and was nothing special. My wife did enjoy the Bucatini pasta. The waiter was friendly and attentive. Has potential but the pop up space is overrated and not a place I’d return to unless the restaurant was in a real building.

    A fun experience in the pop-up at North Hills— considering the logistics of this little wonder Village, it was fun to see it first hand. our late lunch on Saturday was fantastic. Everything was perfectly executed. Temperature of the pop-up space is a little warm so dress accordingly.

    So this was a very different experience. First, the address isn't correct, this place is actually located in the parking lot next to 6 Forks and not on Lassiter. Second, it's actually in several containers that are stacked next to each other. There are maybe 5 or 6 shops and the restaurant. Everyone in your party HAS to register to enter the area, I registered but my wife hadn't so she had to do that before she could go in (it's free to register) We had the choice to eat inside or out, it wasn't too cold, plus they had heaters, so we decided to eat outside. Plus it was nicely decorated and lit up. We were seated quickly and drink orders were taken. We ordered the shrimp cocktail, 4 large shrimp came out with a nice tangy cocktail sauce. For our entree's I ordered the salmon, it was probably the best salmon I've ever had. They left the skin on which gave it some texture, plus the sauce it came in was very tasty. My wife ordered their chicken dish, which ended up having the wing drumette still connected to the breast piece. It was served with 5 tiny tiny pieces of potato, slices of radish, hearts of palm, all atop a Peruvian sauce. Both were definitely delectable, but small portions for the price, when you're used to having leftovers!! We ended up the meal with a chocolate mousse dessert for 2 (with tart cherry sauce on the side), which was, as I put it, plate-lickin' good! This place will only be here a couple of more weeks, then they pack everything up and head to Florida. Again, a very unique place to try out

    Recently, my friends and I had the pleasure of dining at The Whitman, and we were thoroughly impressed. Our server was not only attentive but also knowledgeable about the menu, which made our experience all the more enjoyable. For our entrees, I ordered the Broccolini Caesar with Salmon, one of my friends had the classic burger and fries, and the other went for the ribeye. While the ribeye was tender and flavorful, my friend did note that she wished the portion of meat was slightly larger and that there was less fat. All in all, we had an excellent time, and I would definitely recommend The Whitman to anyone in the area looking for a quality meal.

    Our experience at the Whitman was phenomenal. However our entry to the restaurant was beyond frustrating & disappointing. The booth with the ladies out, were rude, , impolite, obnoxious to the point we headed back . But we called you , thankfully we were answered , treated well, lady from the restaurant apologized, and we then came in. But overall at the restaurant our experience was great

    My husband and I dined there 5 times during their stay in Raleigh. We live near where they will be next, Jupiter, Florida. We will definitely drive there for more than one meal. We also meet two wonderful people that worked for The Whitman, Ed and Michelle. They were so gracious to us and very professional. Can’t wait to see them in Florida. Rusti Pack

    What a unique place. The food was terrific though a bit costly. There isn’t a liquor license so only wine/beer. We had a delightful brunch and you should check it out soon as I heard it will be gone by mid-January.
