I was here for a dinner with a friend. We ordered a couple of dishes and they were all absolutely delicious. I loved my Salmon Tartar! Our Server Crystal was attentive and professional. We look forward to returning for their 99 cent oysters special!!

Had a few drinks there, they have some good beers on tap. The staff is friendly and attentive. I would recommend as a good place for a drink while staying at the hotel.

Good service and many delicious veg-friendly options combined with a fantastic happy hour deal (midweek) featuring delicious options, made our experience at Raw Bar a pleasant one. A dark and cosy place that isn't too loud or too busy.

Spacious, creative lighting, comfortable ambience! Nice variety of cocktails----attractive Bar area. Attentive service. VietModern menu. Crab and Mango salad rolls were very good, very fresh--- would have preferred them to be chilled/ Beef short rib steamed buns were excellent. Overall---a repeat. Good music!
