Our waiter just never came back to our table so our wait to get food was a little long but the young man who took over was much better

Overall it was a awesome experience. It just took a little time for the waitress to introduce herself to us and get us something to drink. It’s wasn’t her fault she was the only one waiting tables in our section and it was pretty busy. Like i said overall it was a 5 star day. I will be back next week.

The staff and food was great. Only thing that I ask is if there could be some notification that they won't open the doors until 5pm for reservations. So many people was outside trying to get in all at once. They seated everyone fast and the food was hot and steamy and we did not wait long at all. We took platters home and unfortunately they both were incorrect. We asked for certain sides and they gave us the original sides that come with it.

Food was good. Service was skeptically - waiter forgot about us multiple times. Server brings out hot food and knocks over glass of water on my hubby’s lap, cell phone and mask. After the dilemma , server provides hubby with cloth for him to clean it up himself😒 but otherwise, nice experience and nice restaurant and great music!

The table was too small to accommodate all the dishes for two people. My chicken was over cooked and dry. My wife's turkey wings were very good and the side dishes were also good.

Food was delicious, we all loved our meals. The service was excellent. Everyone there welcomed us into the restaurant. They had a great soundtrack playing, largely 80s and 90s R&B. We will go back in a heartbeat.

The food was very good but I think the portion sizes should be more considering the pricing I don’t mind spending good money but I think management should consider this otherwise everything else was very good

The fried chicken wings and entree were great. The short ribs were unseasoned but tender. Portions were small (sides) felt rushed. Our food came out only a minute or two after our appetizer. But service was good

The drinks was so nasty. It was horrible. Didn't taste fresh at all. Also tasted like the juice was bad.. I couldn't even drink it. One we sat down it was almost 40min to get our food. Our waitress was awesome though. It wasn't her fault. However it looked like she was the only one on the floor taking everyone's order. This was night a good night.

the food was great, the server was outstanding but no one was at the door letting people in when they opened the door. We all stood up outside and when we went in, the staff looked confused.

I was excited to try this restaurant because I love soul food! When we got there it was pretty quiet, no music was playing. I personally hate that because I feel like I have to keep my voice down and I can hear what everyone in the restaurant is saying. There was a baby crying for the entirety of that time. Thankfully they turned the music on after about 20 minutes. The wings that we got as an app were pretty salty which was disappointing because it took away from the flavor. We also got the cajun pasta as an entree. It wasn’t bad but not what we were expecting. The service was a little better than the food. The Hennessy Sangria was pretty good.

The food was great. It was my 1st time at Relish, the down fall was a few of the dishes were too salty. The ambiance was ok, however the establishment could use a little upgrade. Look a little dowdy may need to clean the carpet and a paint job, photo frames etc.

Service was extremely slow. Drinks took 20 minutes and dinner arrive just over an hour from the time we placed the order. The excuse was they are still focused on To Go orders. Believable but dine in customers shouldn’t be penalized for poor planning and execution.

I advise any one to wait for Covid to be over before attempting to dine in since their priority is take out customers. Food was good so I’ll be back someday.
