We had a party of 6 and the server was happy to get our drinks even though we didn't have our entire party. The highlights for our meal were the crispy duck salad, scallops, petite filet, and the carrot cake. I would go again for a special occasion. Delicious!!

Went a day after restaurant week ended and luckily the pre fixe menu was extended to my husband and I. We agreed that the food was delicious. Loved the pear/blue cheese/walnut salad,mahi mahi and carrot cake dessert. Husband really loved the ribeye. Server was attentive and helpful. Chairs were comfortable as well. :)

Thought we would try again. They have gotten WORSE. Sat for our 8:00 reservation. Took 10 minutes to be greeted by waiter. 10 minutes to get drinks. 10 minutes to order food. 25 minutes for food to arrive. They missed one dish. We called the manager over, he was useless. Food was mediocre, slow in coming, over priced. Will never go again. One of the poorest experiences.

The scallops- good, the ceviche — way too spicy and oniony, the duck salad - great, the rack of lamp undercooked and overpriced. Good win selections the service is fairly good. The space is not particularly cozy. The seats sink in and are not comfortable. Overall, it was good to ok, but definitely overpriced.

The portion sizes were rather small and lacked substance. On New Years day we both had the misfortune of gastrointestinal issues which lasted several days.

Ranazul used to be one of my favorites but no more. They no longer offer tapas ( at least for lunch) which is disappointing. The sandwiches and other lunch entrees are good but not spectacular. The worst was the service which was extremely slow despite the sparse crowd. Not planning on a return trip which is too bad.

Keith was great at explaining the menu and timing the courses. We started with the cheese plate, which had a nice selection of cheeses and fruit. Followed that we a delicious pear salad. I had the tuna steak tar tarte and my wife had the shrimp and pasta. Both were excellent. Dessert was the fruit cobbler with ice cream. Also very tasty. The negatives are fairly minor. No draft beer. The fixed price menu was not a bargain (we didn't go for it). Also the menu wasn't clear about which selections were tapas and which were entrees. For example, the shrimp and pasta was enough for two entrees. This is worth mentioning because the restaurant considers itself a tapas restaurant.

We checked in for our table and waited while they set our table. By the third time we checked in (and nearly a half hour later in a restaurant not completely filled), we were seated. It took 3 trials/tastes before we found a wine that we liked but they were good about allowing us to return an unpalatable selection. Our food was fine - nothing noteworthy and nothing terrible. We were only given bread and butter plates to use as we shared our tapas. The focaccia was more like white bread sliced into rectangles, the Cesar salad was difficult to eat with very large and overdressed pieces of romaine dotted with insufficient anchovies and the spinach should have been cut smaller and served more savory than sweet. All in all, we enjoyed our waiter’s service but certainly could have hoped for a better overall dining experience.
