I probably eat here 4-5 times a month, for lunch and dinner. They have a great menu with lots of variety. There is also a Test Kitchen menu with different items and this one changes frequently. I particularly like the salads and my family likes the burgers. My son really enjoyed his Skillet Mac and Cheese with Chili. I recently had the fried fish which was two huge pieces of delicious, moist battered fish. It was excellent. I also ordered the sweet potatoes which come with a sauce that is sweet and irresistable. The service is good and the place is always crowded. Their fried green tomatoes are wonderful.

Relish is a very large restaurant with an extensive menu and therein lies the problem. They offer so many different selections that none of them are outstanding. The pimento cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches that they are known for are only so-so and don't come close to being as good as homemade. The waitstaff is friendly, but always seems to be rushed and distracted. Relish needs to trim its menu and concentrate on quality, even if it means raising their very reasonable prices a bit.

Our lunch group choses a different restaurant each month. The Relish Cafe and Bar was suggested to us and we began a wonderful adventure. We called ahead and a table was waiting. Our server was most pleasant as she answered our many questions. The menu is varied and can satisy every taste. The serve comfort foods with a "New Southern" twist, however my "Northern" neighbors found pleanty to like. A must try for anyone in Raleigh.

We keep going back. Every time the food comes out wrong at first, always fixed quickly. The service is awful. The hosts only seat. They won't do ANYTHING else. The wait staff is slow and not very good at their jobs. But, we keep going back.

I want to like this as it is close enough to be a neighborhood hangout, but the service just isn't good enough to want to return frequently.
