“Creative food”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

One chef behind the counter with about 20 items on the menu. Everything is uncooked (raw, marinated, smoked). The scallop ceviche is one of the best dishes I've ever tried. The dishes are artfully presented. The atmosphere is very casual and the prices are hard to beat. It is located next to another great restaurant (Bowl) and items can be ordered from both places as appetizers/entrees or as multiple dishes to share. Service is excellent. I've been about 5-6 times in the last several months, and although several dishes are always on the menu, there are also several dishes which are frequently changed. Unfortunately Rawr is only open Thursday-Sunday.

“Raw is in at Rawr”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were delighted to try this exciting new restaurant. We sat at the bar and watched as the dishes we ordered were prepared right before us. We stopped in for a light bite, and we will go back! The spring rolls are amazing, and the oysters were delightful and beautifully presented. Each plate is a work of art though the atmosphere is casual. Next time I go there I must try the beet raviolis. I chatted with the couple sitting next to us and they said that they come to Reno often and Rawr is a "must stop". If you want fresh, organic and mostly local produce, give Rawr a try.

“Innovative and delicious raw dishes”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

One of the best dining experiences we have had. Had our meal cost twice as much we still would have been thrilled with the quality and experience.

Chef Brett Kendall has brilliantly found wonderful combinations with raw foods to create some outstanding flavor combinations. We stuck to the vegan portion of the menu, but fish and meat also have a place. We tried five items and all were outstanding. The "ahi" roll featuring beets and an "oyster" dish featuring mushrooms stood out.

Treat his menu as a tasting and try many items. You will not be disappointed.
