The relief sound fine. The string height, if measured at the 12th fret - from top of fret to bottom of string - is excessive. Should be about 3/32" on the low E and a little less on the high E. That means you need to have the saddle 3/16" lower than it is now. Unless you now have 1/4" of saddle projecting above the bridge, the primary option is a neck reset. There are some other options, but are not ideal solutions.
