Everything was amazing! Service, food, atmosphere!
Food was delicious, service very attentive and ambience romantic.
One of my favorite spots in LA. The service and food was perfect.
Rao’s completely exceeded my expectations! The ambience was very classic but still trendy, the service was outstanding, and the food was very authentic and tasty. Our server, Jonathan, had great recommendations. My partner and I ordered the meatballs as an appetizer along with the bone in veal Parmesan and oxtail pasta. Jonathan paired our meal with a nice bottle of wine. The cheesecake for desert was also great! Highly recommend. We will be returning.
Well, I'm Italian so, I almost never eat Italian out. But, I wanted to try Rao's since getting into the NY restaurant is impossible. Here's what I know: the Caesar salad was good but there wasn't any anchovy flavor and it was too large. It could feed two people. That much lettuce is unnecessary. The veal picatta had no lemon flavor and was SWIMMING in the white wine reduction sauce. Restraint was not shown. This is a delicate dish that requires the veal to shine, not the sauce. The espresso and tiramisu were great. But once again, the tiramisu was too large. Portion control people, portion control. I'll stick with cooking at home using my grandmother's recipes. For $140, I could feed myself for a month or more.
The best. As always…
Amazing! The food is delicious
Just a first class dining experience. From the ambiance, the friendly and courteous staff to the mouthwatering cuisine. We really enjoyed our evening and think it could become a Sunday dinner habit. Thank you!!
Made me feel at home like I was back in NYC. The manager came around to the table just to check in. Love that. Server was great about recommendations. It was very busy so I was happy to get a table on a Saturday night. Great crowd as well. Positive staff. Gave my date and I many compliments lol
I will be coming back
Gabriel was the best waiter I've ever had. His recommendations and hospitality were top tier and he was the reason we had such a wonderful time at Rao's. Johnny was wonderful as well. The food was perfect and we can't wait to come back
From the moment you leave you car with the valet and walk into this restaurant you feel taken care of. The staff were phenomenal. So personable made us feel like we’ve been coming for years! Sat at the bar while waiting for our table and Gabe made a mean martini! Johnny greeted us at the bar with some witty humor, the hostess sat us and was super friendly. Kevin our waiter was very kind and on it! Tracy was knowledgeable in her wines and treated us like friends from the start. She knew exactly what we would like and didn’t disappoint from wine to meatballs! This place was such fun! It is my new favorite spot! I recommend to everyone. Gotta try the stuffed mushrooms and end with the chocolate cake!! 5plus stars! How many places can you go to and have a few drinks yet in the morning still remember all the staffs names from your last nights dinner experience? Well go to Rao’s and you will! Lol
Delicious food, delicious drinks, huge portions. Noise level was louder than I was anticipating (I thought it would be a little more intimate) but not a big deal or unbearable. Manager & owner walked around to make sure the guests were taken care of. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great food & experience, will definitely return!
Fantastic as always!
Can’t shake a stick at Dan Tana’s
Rao's is fantastic. Great service, great food, and great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
I love Rao’s. I’ve been to the original one in New York City and was thrilled when they opened a branch out here. It’s the same food and the same quality of service and ambiance, just bigger and anyone can book a table. In the New York restaurant, it’s like a membership restaurant. People have their own table at a specific time each week, or something like that. Anyway, I’ve been to the one in Hollywood a few times and always get the same thing. Veal Parmesan! It’s amazing. Big enough for two and you’ll still take some home. The meatball appetizer is also fantastic. And the pasta….amazing. Check it out. You’ll love it.
Great staff. Awesome food. A Hollywood landmark
Service was good but the eggplant Parm was tough and chewy . I have been there many times but this was not worth returning there for!
Another great night at Rao's. Service and food are flawless. Their meatballs might be the best thing I have ever eaten. It was quiet on a Wednesday night, coming out of COVID, but the staff was great and the food was fantastic. Never a bad experience.
It was amazing! They were more than accomodating with special requests and met our dietary concerns. We fought over who had the best dish, they were all amazing. The wine they recommended was excellent with the pasta.
The meatballs are outstanding. Please note that you would need to specify how al dente you want the pasta since Rao's tend to cook their pasta very al dente.
Service was top notch! They were very courteous & friendly even though we were 40 mins late for our reservation.
The meatball appetizer & pasta bolognese was fantastic!
Highly recommend Rao’s!
Our visit was amazing, we will definitively be back. Kevin our server and the rest of the staff was outstanding he was very informative and made sure we were well taken care off!
Friendly, relaxing, family friendly, and fantastic food. Try the lemon chicken and ask for bread so you can mop up the juices.
Better than ever!!!
So friendly! Loved it will definitely go again. Very fun place to go.
Great place food and service is always fabulous Johnny is the best!
We were a little disappointed to not get the outdoor seating we had confirmed - but we ended up at a pretty good indoor table and everything else was wonderful
I’ve always loved Raos. It was my ‘go to’ place for great NY Italian food. But I have to say it’s changed. We were in and out of there in 45 minutes. The food came out just too fast. And busboys hovered over us to take away our unfinished plates. The food was okay. They were nice to accommodate my menu changes but it was nothing to write home about. I felt rushed and our waiter kept hovering, eager to talk about life, show business, etc. He was nice enough but I felt like he was joining our party of two. There just wasn’t a sense of privacy or intimacy that I like when I’m on a dinner date.
Excellent staff, service and quality of everything prepared was excellent.
Delicious food, friendly staff, great service. We would definitely comeback!
My evening dinner with my wife on her birthday was amazing. It was our first time going. This staff was fantastic. The food was delicious. We look forward on making this our favorite restaurant. Thank you
Noah and Kevin are the reason we keep going back to Raos! The food is great! But these 2 guys are the best.
Always a great meal. Best meatball ever!!
We came to celebrate a good friend’s retirement and it was so fun. The staff were very friendly and made us feel special. Can’t wait to return back again!
Terrific vegan options! Great drinks. Johnny “Roast Beef” Williams checks in on you and makes you feel welcome.
Great service,love the New York feel, delicious food especially the meatballs and cannoli
Had a fabulous waiter and food did not disappoint! The cheesecake was delicious !
Love the place, but the service was spotty.
