My server could have care less about serving us. 2 women enjoying nice dinner. Very stand offish. I ended up tipping the gentleman cleaning off dirty plates from table because he took better care of us.

Sunday Gravy. Boom. That's all you need. Well, and one of their generously poured martinis helps.

We have now been to Rao's twice and both times, the experience has been great! Our waiter was timely, friendly, and informative. The food all-around our table of four was fantastic. I loved the double cut pork chop especially and the stuffed mushrooms everyone enjoyed. On top of the excellent food, the atmosphere is classy and fun.

Love, love, love this place! It's like being transported to NYC for a great Italian dinner. Great vibe and terrific people... and the food! Amazing! Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or it''s just Wednesday (or any day), Rao's is the place to be. Cheers to Patrick and the gang!

Food and service were great. Booth for 2 was a bit cramped and uncomfortable; would ask for a table next time.
