Exceeded expectations!

I had the best experience at this restaurant. The food was delectable and service was great! I recommend the She Crab Soup, Grilled Caesar salad, Diver Caught scallops & Sour Cream fried chicken. Price per entree is between $25-$41.

Rarely am I impressed with the service, but our waiter was a true professional. It was like being in a movie. And the food... WOW. We had the Calamari and it was served in the middle of a salad. I thought it looked odd but was a perfect blend that was delicious. Don't fight the traffic, stay at the hotel... More

I went here for my birthday. It was a great evening. The she-crab soup is always divine. The veal Oscar and the filet were both quite good. We love the live music in the dining room/lounge area. There is a nice, intimate feel to this restaurant but it would also be good for a business dinner. I've had lunch there... More

Intimate, classy, subdued, elegant but not stuffy. Food portions are huge AND incredible. Located in an old, classy hotel - Raphael - the ambience is subtle. The service was incredible with a very large wine list. Menu is unique. You will always have your steak and a chicken meal, but it's the appetizers that really set it off. We had... More

This classy yet intimate restaurant, on the Country Club Plaza, has always maintained a great reputation, even through a few ownerships. They now have appropriate dinner music every night. Situated in a grand old hotel, The Raphael, the food is always top-notch. Talented creative chef utilizes his Southern upbringing masterfully. Steak, lamb, salmon always flavorful, often with a slight different... More

I talked about Chaz in my review of the Raphael. This is a quality, first class restaurant with a chef that has unique items on the menu along with traditional favorites. Our wait staff was fun, and professional and very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. Try the rack of lamb.
