I chose Raso’s based on good reviews and it’s proximity to the Chevalier Theatre. Drinks, food and wait staff were great! Highly recommend!

Parking is tough but "The bar is lively"!! The bartenders are fabulous and make excellent craft cocktails! We had reservations on a Friday night at 5:45 before a show at the Chevalier Theater (approx one mile away) After seeing the dining room...we opted to sit in the bar. The dining room is dated but quaint. The food was delicious even though the pork chop was over cooked. The sausage is a must try! We will definitely go back

Busy night and the wait staff was seemed to be stretched thin. We didn’t see our waiter, and I think it was due to the night being under staffed. Also, food took very long to come out, and when it did, the pasta dishes came out steaming, as they should be, and the meat and fish dishes were lukewarm.

Alicia may be the best waitperson we’ve ever had. She’s quick, gracious, funny and very efficient - everything you want to complete your dining experience. The food, as always, was delicious. The steak tips cooked to perfection, paired with a spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese was exactly what I wanted and they delivered. The lemon dressing is fantastic.. I look forward to it every time we go to Raso’s. Everyone enjoyed their meals. It was a very lovely evening out.

The food was delicious as always but I was disappointed to see that the menu had changed and some of my favorites were no longer available. We sat at the bar for an hour and some of the beers listed on the menu were not available when ordered, then when we sat down for dinner, we ordered a bottle of wine for the table and was told that they didn't have that specific wine. Our waiter was great and gave us a more expensive bottle for the same price as the one that was out, but when we later went to order that same bottle, we were told that that wasn't available any more either.

I've been to Raso's multiple times and I've never been disappointed with the quality of their food, and would recommend it to friends, but also let them know not to get their hopes up when it comes to the drinks.

Made a reservation for 3, 8 days prior. Table was 30 plus minute wait, hostess didn’t provide updates, waitress rarely stopped over, water refilled only when tracked down, very loud tables nearby including lots of regulars who clearly get preferential treatment. Too bad because the food was quite good but we would not return.

I asked a friend to recommend a restaurant somewhere around Cambridge, not too expensive but good food. This really fit the bill. It's in a pretty funky area right on Mystic Ave., and the parking is definitely limited. But we went for Sunday lunch and there were very few people in the restaurant and several open parking spots. The place started to fill up later in the afternoon. It's remarkably close to Tufts - only a few minutes from Powder House Square (Circle). The wait people were attentive and friendly, and the food was very good. Got the eggplant stack appetizer - unusual and delicious! Great pistachio martini, and other mixed drinks that were very interesting and tasty, and not expensive. We had really yummy spumoni and tiramisu for dessert. The atmosphere is fine, nothing to write home about, but comfortable and pleasant. I'd definitely go back.

WOW! I feel like I can FINALLY believe some reviews! I had never heard of this convenient place right off 93. It had 100% recommendation, we parked easily right in front, walked into a pleasantly lively bar scene, and 2 side by side dining areas, pleasantly full.....on a MONDAY night! Host & Hostess were amazing, really concerned with where we would be comfortable sitting and actually came back shortly after and mentioned that a booth had opened up! We moved over there and I had the seat facing the HUGE screen tv, so could inconspicuously watch the Red Sox BLOW OUT the Yankees and not be distracted! Waiter was great with wine selection, cocktail was a perfect Manhattan, then, Hubby ordered the BEST BOLOGNESE in Boston! on homemade ravioli, amazing, we pretty much licked the plate! (it was even better than the time I made it from scratch for hours and hours and stunk up the kitchen) I can't wait to go back!

Not from around the area. Needed a dining established near Suffolk Downs. Great pick. Service was very friendly. Food was good. A very more healthy options would have been nice. Overall I would recommend this place for a quick dine in or even with a group.

Unfortunately our experience was ruined when we ordered our second martini and was advised sorry you have to pick something else because we ran out of Malibu rum. ??? This was at 6:30 on a Wednesday with a liquor store less than a mile away ... I don’t think that’s good customer service 😟

Food was good. Waiter came and asked what we wanted while his hands were in his pockets. We had to ask the waiter for bread and also for the green beans that went with one meal. He thought we were wrong, but I told him it was listed on the Mahi Mahi special of the night. My husband's espresso was cold and the waiter said, "I saw her just make it". No apology. Waiter was a letdown.
I was at the restaurant on 7/17 with a party of 5 and everything was excellent. What a difference when the waiter is professional and likes what he does.

The look of the restaurant is underwhelming, but the food was very good, and the service was excellent. Out server Gustavo could not have been any more friendly, and he checked in on us just the right amount of times so we were all set for food and drinks. Prices were reasonable, and the outside seating area was a plus.
