I took my Mother and Family Friend out for my Mother's Birthday, It was her choice and an excellent one. My first time at Relish and the food was outstanding. The music was a little too loud for my taste but not unbearable. Our service was great and our Server was attentive and considerate. The Front, not so much. The young lady and gentleman who checked us in seemed snooty, like they were doing US a favor. Not rude, just dismissive. They could have been preoccupied but who knows. Overall it was a fine experience and I will return,

My family and I had an AMAZING time at Relish. We were seated quickly. The service was AMAZING. The food was DELICIOUS. There was a live band that was playing great music. And the ambiance was everything. I will definitely be visiting again. African American restaurant at its finest.

I would definitely recommend Relish. This was my second time coming and I wasn't disappointed the first time either. From the host at the front door that seated us, he was the first smile and great customer service, at 5:00pm on Saturday 10/2/2021 for my husband's birthday, to our waiter Chris. Everything was perfect. Chris provided us recommendations for the menu and also described meals and drinks on the menu to us. He came back often to check on us and see if we needed anything. The food was spot on and the drinks was superb and they didn't shy away from the alcohol, like some places that water drinks down. We will definitely be back.

We came to see Tanqueray Hayward and she brought it. An amazing performance.

My wife and I always get the skillet of cornbread. I had catfish and wifey had shrimp ...both delicious.

Food was good however service was overboard. Waiter Chris is training 2 very nice young ladies. Very nice however the constant coming over to the table and hovering over us made us feel rushed. Very nice- all 3. However all 3 coming to the table every 5 mins is just too much.

The food was okay. It was nothing to write home about, but not horrible. A bit over seasoned. The service could’ve been better. Our server was not very attentive. We were brought the wrong food and sent it back, yet it still appeared on our bill.

The food was great as usual. The server was nice but she did forget to bring me a spoon for one of my dishes and the time that lapsed caused the dish to get cold. She was able to get it warmed for me so I still enjoyed it. There was live music this night with a $5 charge pp to sit in the area where the music was.

Relish is a great place to enjoy time out with family, friends or if you are entertaining clients. The menu is usually varied with soulful choices to select from and the service has always been exceptionally accommodating.

Relish is certainly my wife’s comfort food dealer….LOL!!!! We can’t wait for the live jazz to return to Relish. Continue to dish out those soulful vibes Relish!!!
