Slow service on an evening that wasn’t really that busy. Good portions were good though, value for money.

Food and ambiance was usual, EXCELLENT. Our waitress was very nice but started by offering bottled water which we ordered and then we asked for tap. ( should have mentioned tap first)...also rushed us a bit with NOBODY waiting for a table...also...she was a bit too much of a sales person of the food....we get it, we love it, leave us alone:)
Overall, I got a sense she was new there and trying VERY hard.....certainly a good waitress just tone done a bit.
We are devotees of Racks so we of course will be back again!

Great happy house prices. Truffle fries were good, oysters a steal, pizzas were tasty, ribs delish, and the fish tacos were decent. I wouldn’t recommend them, as I found them a tad dry but still edible. Overall a great deal!

Fantastic mojito! Really good fish too. Crab crusted sea bass was to die for, and easily enough to share.

Food and service was good. Good menu selection. Be careful of sitting outside, if its busy, you will have the valets running past you throughout your meal and it can become quite annoying

Food was excellent. My husband had the chicken and waffles, it was delicious. Service started very good but by the end of the meal the waiter disappeared. We had to wait over 15 minutes for the waiter to check on us and ask if we wanted anything else. At that point we skipped the dessert.

We loved the dining room and the service was awesome! I ordered the Ribeye steak and was disappointed with the quality of the cut. My friend had the Filet and was very happy with it.

Very crowded and noisy but it was a Saturday night and many people celebrating St. Patricks day.
Food was very good and the service was absolutely excellent.
Our friends were visiting from Chicago and they were also very satisfied with everything.

Thank You for making our booking much easier.

The food was just fair and we had to wait a very long time for the steaks to come out room temperature. We’ve been coming to Racks for a long time, but I think this will be our last for a while as the menu choices have become so limited that it was difficult to find something to order and then only to have sub par food.

We made a reservation and was seated promptly. The seating was placed in the middle of the room and was rather too close for my taste with the other patrons. The food was very good.

We come here often and the food is very consistent and good. Last night we had the miso glazed lettuce wraps for an appetizer and they were amazing. It is a great place that has something for everyone. My youngest gets a kids menu and my oldest has sushi. Everyone is happy!

The food was good. They had a variety of fish (including sushi) chicken, ribs, steaks etc. Drinks were fine. However, the service was so horrible! Our waiter never came back once he took our order. Never checked on us if our meals were ok, or if we needed refills on drinks (silly on their part). Then he come back drops the dessert menu, mumbles that he recommends the key lime pie, and continues walking. There was no way that with that service, we would stay longer and give them more money. If you do go, definitely bring your time and patience.
