This was our second visit to D&T and I could have sworn I wrote a rave review after our 1st visit but appears I did not...shame as it was about the best steak meal my husband and I have ever had!!  My husband has lived in Uruguay where the Argentine style cooking over fire is the norm - absolutely the best way to enjoy steak! Our meal on both trips; everything was perfect in our opinion! - Octopus, rice beans, parsley, pine nuts, Castelvetrano olives, piquillo pepper - Heritage grain sourdough bread, cultured butter, salt - Smoked Tennessee Red Cobb grits, oyster mushrooms, parmesan - Dry-aged Bear Creek Farms steak, chimichurri - selection on both trips was a bone in ribeye - sharing size - Videri Chocolate Mousse, charred marshmallow, graham cracker crumbs (to us this could be branded as adult s'mores!! So delicious and the right ending to share post meal!) The craft cocktails on both trips have been delicious and well balanced - we were here in Oct and just yesterday, 12/28 so the selections must change each month but we thoroughly enjoyed as a start to our meal.  The wine selection is also nice to try some interesting vineyards you do not see everywhere. Now about the service and observation of the kitchen staff - we felt like such precision and care went into each dish going out - our first visit was at a table and second we sat at the counter facing kitchen- for us we enjoyed the counter so we could have dinner and a show.  All we can say is that for our visits we've been treated with such genuine attention and a true spirit of trying to make sure our dining experience was amazing - which it has been on both occasions!  The quality control and coaching that we observed during our most recent visit have to be commended - to stay a top restaurant is not easy and each and every person we observed were indeed putting their heart into this establishment.   We only live about an 1.5hr away so hope to get here soon again - great meal and always remember you generally get back what you put out - so if you are going into your dining experience snotty, demanding or sour attitude...then you are approaching your dining experience all wrong.  We found everyone here to be exceptional!
Really wanted to love this place but was generally underwhelmed. Although I offered for the kitchen to just send out some plates, my server whiffed on that opportunity and simply suggested I order an appetizer, side, and the fish. I got the oysters, which would have been great if they had been clean - sadly they were not. Next up were the mushrooms which were fine, but would have greatly improved with some salt. Lastly was the fish, which also needed some salt but generally was bland in flavor with nothing about it being memorable. I was still hungry and though I hadn't been offered bread, I asked for some. The bread that came out was crusty and delicious, but whatever seeds they had in it nearly broke a tooth, so be on the lookout! On the positive side, the wines were very good and the space is beautiful. There are exquisite touches incorporating older architecture with new hardware - I especially liked the light fixtures. Something tells me a little more attention to detail by the kitchen could bring this place out of the middle and into the real gem it has the potential to be.
First experience at a Ashley Christensen restaurant, and it was a very nice one.   Death and Taxes is in an elegant building in downtown Raleigh.  There are painted signs on the windows to direct you to the entrance.  Staff at the host/ess stand were at the ready to welcome us and take us to our table when we arrived. We started ourselves with an order of bread and bread.  Very very very good bread, served warm with crust crispy, and totally worth the carbs. The menu at current printing is traditionally divided to appetizer (To Begin), main courses (Mains), and sides (Alongside) sections.  For our table of four we ordered two appetizers for the table and then a main dish for each person.  Our waiter let us know that all plates are shareable, and they truly were. We enjoyed the beets and cauliflower appetizers.  Both were delicious and provided lots of veggie content to our meals.  I tasted two main dishes:  one which was pasta and rabbit (very nice) and a picahna (Brazilian cut) steak (especially incredibly delicious). Overall our server was really great to us throughout the meal.  It was a lovely dining experience.
