7713 Lead Mine Rd #15, Raleigh

“About 5 years ago my family moved. In transition I stayed (with our cat) at an airbnb near this restraunt. The woman who owned the home told me I had to try Imperial Garden (I was planning on Cheesecake Factory)I'm SO GLAD she suggested this lovely restraunt.Sit down, made to order Chinese reatraunts are dying out unfortunately. This one was GREAT from the second I walked in.People there are really nice...I live an hour away and try to eat there at least once a year...I was remembered every time I returned (which is always nice) I like to go when it's cold out and get hot Oolong tea :) and it was a nice surprise to have a fella playing Christmas songs on the piano.I really liked the hot tea, wonton soup, dumplings, and sesame beef.I get the booth in the far corner....unscrew the little light bulb at my table..and pop a movie on while I eat solo...and I am a happy man!Can't wait to go back.”

We had been waiting for our check for 15 minutes and he was just gone. But prior to that he had been pleasant. We were looking for good Italian food, this worked.”

“Not a local so had no idea what to expect. I sat at the bar, was greeted immediately. The menu has a robust selection to choose from. After discussion with bartender I was served scallops skewer with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Delightful!! The scallops were tender and sweet, as they should be. Mashed potatoes definitely "home made", and delicious. The grilled asparagus had the right amount of firmness and the right amount of crunch. Perfect! Definitely recommend.”

Crawford and Son 618 N Person St, Raleigh American • $$
618 N Person St, Raleigh

“Valentine's Warm-Up that Exceeded Expectations at Crawford & Son! (5 Stars)While technically not Valentine's Day yet, my hubby and I decided to celebrate early with a pre-holiday dinner at Crawford & Son. Seated comfortably at the bar, we were immediately greeted by the warm and friendly Ray, who set the tone for the entire evening. They expertly guided us through the menu, offering insightful recommendations and answering our questions with genuine enthusiasm.But let's get to the real stars of the show: the food! Beef Tartare is an absolute must-order! Also, the scallops were divine. Perfectly seared with a crisp caramelized crust, they melted in our mouths like buttery clouds. The accompanying sweet potato galette was a revelation - perfectly balanced between savory and sweet. But the true MVP was the cauliflower side. Roasted to perfection, it had a wonderful smoky depth and retained a delightful al dente texture. We couldn't stop raving about it!And then there was Jordan. Throughout the evening, he provided exemplary service with a smile that could light up the room. He was attentive to our needs without being intrusive, offering suggestions and ensuring our glasses were never empty. His genuine warmth and friendly demeanor made us feel like valued guests, not just another table.From the outstanding food to the exceptional service, our pre-Valentine's dinner at Crawford & Son was an absolute delight. Ray and Jordan truly went above and beyond, making it an unforgettable experience. We'll definitely be back soon, not just for Valentine's Day, but for any occasion that deserves a touch of culinary magic and genuine hospitality. Thank you, Crawford & Son, for setting the bar high!P.S. Don't miss the scallops, sweet potato galette, and crispy cauliflower - they're worth the visit alone!”
