Description: Razz's Restaurant & Catering With his engaging smile, rich exotic voice and culinary wizardry, Chef Razz Kamnitzer is the charismatic soul of the hip restaurant. The restaurant is small and sleek. A bustling open kitchen transport diners to the hobnobbing, energetic experience of big city dining. The chef is a native of Venezuela with a heritage spanning Europe. Razz offers international classics: Paella, Bouillabaisse, Osso Bucco, Escargot Bourguignonne as well as inspired contemporary creations such as Macadamia Nut Encrusted Mahi Mahi served with a tropical fruit relish and garlic beurre blanc sauce. If you're a Food Network junkie, dine at island kitchen with a host of regular guests and chat with Razz as he and his team flambe, saute and slice it up.

Had bought a Groupon to try this place as had wanted to go to for a long time to try out. Food is excellent, wide variety of choices. Lots going on around you, yet it still feels very intimate and excellent service without being overbearing. Definitely high priced so don't be shocked. Razz is very personable, and enjoyable to be around. If he gives you a suggestion, try it.

We went to Razz's with four people on a Saturday night and thankfully had a reservation. All four of us ordered a different entrée and they were all good.

It is posh, I know. We went with a friend, on her invitation - and we left somehow disappointed. The food has great names and prices accordingly. We have been at places cheaper or about the same price and better food.
What we found most disturbing is that you sit in the kitchen. The smell gets into your clothes, you have to air them quite well later on. It is loud too, and the portions are to big. I am not in the business of taking doggy bags home. If you happen to have seafood, as an example, what you take home is smelly next day. It is dark too and therefore not easy to read the menu.
I know it is in to have specials. The specials are announced by your waiter. I have trouble to follow all that stuff and to remember prices (may be I should not), why on earth can't I have it in written form as an addition to the menu?
We have experienced it, we will come back.

Visited with a family of 4. Food was excellent with incredible taste. Small restaurant that was full at 7pm on a Saturday. Reservations required for this obviously popular place.
Often with restaurants of this caliber the quantity of food lacks but not here. Large servings were normal here.
Atmosphere is great with open kitchen surrounded by sit down bar. Original art poorly displayed on the wall as a gallery.

One of the finest restaurant experiences of my experienced life! The tasting menu at the bar---great people, great fun, and great food. Chef Razz understands sauces, proteins, textures, layers of flavor, and entertainment as a true professional.
