Great atmosphere and a great price – I happened on this restaurant accidentally and have fallen in love with it. The food is fantastic, the ambience is very relaxing and enjoyable. There is wonderful jazz music playing in the background and each and everytime I have been there the chef / owner as made it a point to come say hello and inquire as to how I liked the restaurant and the meal. Everyone that works there is very friendly and I immediately felt at ease and at home when I entered. This is definitely worth any drive, fortunately I live right aroun the corner.
Random stop in. New regular! – My fiance and I just moved to Nashville. We live just about a mile from Raz's and figured we should check out the local food places that are closest to us. We didn't expect much but I can tell you that Raz's has gained a new regular. The staff was extremely courtious, and everything was prompt and delicious. We are really looking forward to checking out the live Jazz, and it's great that they have a patio to enjoy nice summer nights. Raz checked on us personally once we had finished and I have not had such a personal experience from a restaurant for such a great price. A+++
Nice Jazz music Great wait Staff – My sister and I are always looking for new places to experience. When we arrived at Razz's we found parking was extremely convenient (my sister is blind and I am disabled). We walked into the restaurant and were greated by the chef and owner himself who seated us. He was very personable. The music was soft Jazz which makes for appealing ambiance. I can tell that this place is probably a cut above the rest. From the beginning I wanted to love this place but unfortunately it was full of contradictions. the floors were horribly sticky yet tables clean with real linen napkins. The bread seemed to be those made from frozen dough and not handmade. The spinach/artichoke dip was delicious but the chips were almost burned. The salsa was the best I've ever had ...did it have okra in it? My sis got the special soup of the day ...she loves clam chowder and said it was the best she ever had. I got the chop with a minty sweet sauce. The sauce was great ...the chop was tough. My garlic mashed potatoes were old...they were stale tasting like they had just been reheated and made from old baked potatoes. The squash casserole was a yum fest in my mouth. Zucchini sticks were over cooked but the side sauce amazing and reminded me of a sauce I had in europe. My sister said her chicken salad was perfect. Now the most amazing thing I found was our waiter. We never had to ask for a refill he was quick and thorough. He was pleasant and made suggestions that proved to be spot on. I rarely leave a large tip but in this case I did. I will come back to this Restaurant, but I just pray that the food will be fresh and be as it seemed it should be.
Great Food and Even Better Staff – My wife and I have been regulars at Raz'z for a few years now and used to be the biggest fans. The food was great, the service second to none. Razz himself used to visit every table to say hello. Lately. we have been going less and less frequently. We ate there for the last time this Sunday. The incredible service is gone, our server was MIA most of the meal. Our order was not deliverd correctly, or in a timely manner. When the blonde manager who pulls kitchen shifts is at the helm, there always seems to be problems. Even Raz was nowhere to be seen this time around. The floors seemed dirty and the whole place just seemed less taken care of. I miss the old Raz'z and hope to see it again someday. Until I hear of changes, we will go elsewhere. Sad
Great food! – The food here is wonderful!! The restaurant has a great ambiance and draws a pretty good crowd. The rolls there are delicious and a great predinner snack. You can't go wrong here, everything is great! The staff is wonderful and have never had a problem with being seated promptly. Highly recommend!!
Wonderful! – The food is exceptional. Every dish I've had has been well seasoned and in healthy portion and appropriately priced. Friendly wait-staff and the owner came out to meet us. Very impressed!
The Menu makes the place look better than it is. – We just moved into the area, and thought we'd try some of the local non-chain restaraunts. This was a horrible place to start. The menu is really misleading, and makes you expect great things from the kitchen. Boy, was I wrong. For the prices in this place, the food was average, not the best, but still palatable. The sweet tea was bitter and not sweet...at least get that right, and at that I had to constantly ask for refills. The service in there was not up to par. The only time we saw our server was to take our order, and to give us our check, I had to flag down another waitress for refills, other servers brought items to the table, like simple sauces and mayonaise. And it was NOT a packed house! For what I was expecting, the staff and the food fell very short of the bar. Probably will never eat here again, and it is 5 minutes down the road.
Best in the area! – We eat a business lunch at Raz'z every couple of weeks. We are always seated promptly, and have great service. Raz often makes a visit to the tables. The gumbo is great and the portions are generous. Everything I have tried has been tasty. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.
Our favorite restraunt ever – Great food with a great atmosphere. Friendly staff. We bring all of our family members here when they visit.
Needs to do homework on Cajun cuisine – When I pay good money for Shrimp Etouffee, I expect the etouffee. What was served to me was the same gumbo, I had just finished, with a few crawfish added, and served over rice. The gumbo, itself was salty and thick. Gumbo should be smooth, with a good, dark roux, good stock, and andouille, both providing a nice smokey flavor. This was nothing more than a thick, salty gravy with chunks of chicken, sausage, and shrimp. I doubt if I will return to Razz's for anything cajun-like on their menu.
Lunch-time service and refills were slow.
