    We love Rasa. Food is an adventure in the best sense, and sharing adds a whole new dimension to the conversation. It is not cheap, but still very much worth it. Cannot wait to come back.

    A delightful, curated experience from the outset and throughout. Our server/bartender was incredibly personable, and the food was absolutely delightful! We did the classic tasting menu, and it was excellent. The timing of the courses were bang on, and the staff were all excellent at answering questions about the food. The ceviche was the standout item for our courses! The cocktails were also creative and delicious. Will definitely be returning!

    The concept is sharing several dishes. We were 3 and ordered 5, which was just right. The servers are giving good advice and accommodate food sensitivities very well.

    Absolutely love the food here! It's a great place to go if you're with a group of people who are adventurous and love flavour. We had one person who was pescatarian and one who was gluten free in our group and they were super accommodating with lots of great options. The service was also excellent!

    We had an exceptional dinner at Rasa! The service was wonderful, over vibe was fun and the food was top notch. Love that it is all sharing plates so we could sample a variety of the dishes. The chopped salad, octopus, truffle gnuddi, shrimp, pork, branzino were all great!! Look forward to coming back!!

    I had such a great experience at Rasa! I've been to Rasa a few times before but never had a tasting menu. My friend and I had the Full Experience - the salad is as always amazing, and every other dish blew us away! Add to that our fabulous server (Laura) and it was an amazing night!

    To sum it up: community. By far, out of the hundreds of restaurants I’ve tried, Rasa is by far my favorite dining experience. From the moment you walk in, the feeling of community embraces you. The space is warm and relaxing with inviting seating that keeps you close to your fellow patrons while leaving you with plenty of space to easily enjoy your group’s night. From there, the staff explain the menu: a shared experience among your party, deepening the message of community. Your plate is stamped with the words “Thank You” in various languages to showcase their gratitude for joining them for a night filled with global influences. And that’s the best part: each and every dish lives up to this, embodying different ingredients and techniques from across the world all in one plate. It’s as if the chef is saying “this is what happens when the world comes together,” providing you with some of the best dishes you’ll ever find. Not to mention, the menu is constantly changing and evolving with each season. The food is present beautifully, extremely thoughtful, and absolutely delicious. It out competes most michelin starred restaurants I’ve tried, yet rids itself of any “poshness” to maintain their feeling of community. Rasa’s staff, venue, and food all bring in the theme of community, and each dish truly showcases the beauties that can come from a culturally diverse plate. To say the least, Rasa will forever have a place in my heart, and their meals there will not only change the way you view food itself, but the way you enjoy it.

    The squash fritters were outstanding. Sadly the beef was covered by a lot of sauces and toppings to make up for a less than stellar piece of steak. Almost designed to cover up what was lacking. Otherwise wonderful and we will go back. Just not for the beef.

    The food is delicious but you would be hard pressed to find a restaurant that is, ounce for ounce, as expensive. e.g. About 2 ounces of pork for $40. Or 3 ounces of fish for $32. Completely out of line. Plus loud enough that we had trouble talking.

    Our waiter Alex was excellent! He was knowledgeable and helpful in steering us in dinner choices. The food was packed with flavour and easy to share. The chopped salad is a must! The chocolate crunch was the perfect ending to the meal. I’ve already told a friend she needs to go.

    We went to Rasa while visiting family to see the 2024 eclipse. Dinner at Rasa was a great addition to our itinerary. The four of us ordered the chickpea fritters, beet medaglione and the spicy ceviche was with breem. We also had the grilled octopus and lamb dumplings. Every dish was delicious. You could taste each ingredient, no flavor overpowered another. An exceptional meal. The space is small but the tables are spaced well apart. The staff were attentive and very helpful with the menu. It can get loud at times but overall we were able to hear each other. Great find in a town of great restaurants. I recommend Rasa.

    I would recommend rasa to anyone, including people who eat a gluten free diet! I have celiac disease and have had two great dinner experiences at there. Not only is the food amazing (I’ve tried the squash cakes, salad, chickpea fritters, ceviche, and octopus), they were able to accommodate my diet and let me know what menu items were GF or could be made GF. There was even a GF fryer available both times I went!
