Wow, what great hopes I had. Rae Restaurant had such superb reviews but we hardly enjoyed the meals that these folks did.

The occasion was my mothers Birthday we had looked forward to showing her a good time. It just was not to be. We sat down and were quickly served bread and butter. We quickly dug in because we were quite hungry.

We decided to try this restaurant with another couple during Philadelphia’s Restaurant Week. This is a great deal if you want to try a new, possibly expensive restaurant for a fixed amount of money. The menu selection was pretty good, but not great. There was about 4 of each, appetizer and main course and 2 deserts. I chose the she-crab soup for a starter, the grouper for the main and a chocolate cake for desert.
