    Great place, great food!!!! My wife is the sushi expert. She has turned me on to it this past few months and I really enjoy it. We especially liked the spicy cowgirl roll. Guess who picked it out.... ya dumb me ha ha. We spent our honey moon in downtown OKC and enjoyed several lunch and dinner dining experiences. In The Raw was one of the best in Bricktown. Great job.

    In the Raw isn't amazing but it's not bad either. Most of the sushi we tried were average (we had the In the Raw and Not Raw specials). The California roll was particularly good. The service wasn't bad. We didn't wait to sit and while it seemed to have a different server every time we needed something the food was out fast and we never ran low on our drinks. The ambiance is awesome. The interior designer did a very good job. There's some beautiful painting and a pretty interesting free standing arch. Overall not bad but not amazing.

    I personally thought ITR was nothing extraordinary there was nothing to set its self apart from any other sushi place around town. The only thing I am trying to figure out is was it a sushi restaurant with a bar or a bar that serves sushi? I thought the sushi was very amateur for those people who want to try it but not very experienced with eating it to sum everything up I would say it was a sushi place with training wheels.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/4/2014
    The location in the Bricktown area was a convenient walk from the Sheraton where we stayed. The food was very good as and was served quickly, and our waiter was very friendly and accomodating, although they did not have the Japanese Orion beer which they boasted to feature. We had tried to move our reservations to a later time (Friday night) but Open Table indicated the slot was unavailable. We went later anyway to find there was plenty of seating. The only glaring downside to this establishment is the decor (or lack of) and the interior was a bit tired with paint chipped and floors needed a good cleaning. If you are looking for sushi in OKC, this is your place.

    We were raised on sushi in SoCal and we're new to OKC. In the Raw has the best sushi we've found so far in Oklahoma City! The food is fresh and we liked the local spin on menu items. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Prices were absolutely reasonable. A great find for us.

    The crab cakes were amazing and completely stole the show. The sushi was good, but what really set this apart from other sushi places in the area was the ambiance (and not in a good way.). It was far too noisy to have any type of conversation and I ended up with a headache. Not great for valentines day dinner. Thankfully, we have other options in the area.

    My husband and I went here for the first time for a belated valentines dinner - 5:00 pm Saturday.. The sushi was probably the best we've had in OKC. A little pricier than Saii or Okura, but delicious. Not crowded, but the music was way too loud, which is really the only complaint we had. Service was good. We had 4 rolls: State Fair Roll; Baby Gecko Roll; Blondie Roll; and 6151 roll. All were good, however, the State Fair and Baby Gecko were OUTSTANDING. Blondie was good, but we'd probably try something else next time. The 6151 was OK, but at $22, we expected it to be incredible, which it wasn't. We wouldn't order 6151 again. We'll definitely go back. If you go here, you absolutely have to try the State Fair roll.

    we went for our anniversary, but we have been many times. we have taken our children before and they are always accomadating and friendly. the music is loud enough to cover the next tables conversations but not so loud you have to yell over it, it's got a great mix of music. drinks are always superb. as I am pregnant this time around i had a shirley temple while my husband got the revised cosmopolitan. both of our drinks were perfect. the only thing i don't suggest is their creme brulee i've tried both the vanilla and the blood orange at this point and they just don't know how to make it well. literally everything else we have ever tried has been perfect though.

    We had a 7:30 reservation and got seated immediately. Our server was personable and great at his job! The music was so loud we had members of our party unable to hear each other. We were a party of six and ordered 10 rolls, then added 2 more after those were half consumed. It took a little long to get the second wave, but they were equally delicious. Wish they still had one in Norman! We went often then, and only the second time to the Bricktown location.

    Our reservation is at 7.30 pm and we came early so we waited for table about 20 minutes then by 7.33 we got our table and the waitress told us that the manager told her that any appetizers we want will be free as we have to wait for the table. That's very nice of them to do that for us as it's not their fault that we waited. The food was amazing, service is excellent. Will come back for sure

    If you are a sushi novice, this is the place to go! The menu is very easy to understand and the staff does a fantastic job at explaining and recommending items to try. My husband is new to sushi and was nervous but our waiter's suggestion was a total hit with him! If you're dining with someone who is still leary to try sushi they offer cooked and raw sushi in addition to rice dishes and teriyaki bowls. The tables were a little too close for comfort (but that could be just because our neighborning table's party was incredibly annoying and loud). Will totally go again.

    The sushi wasn't as good as what you can buy at the grocery store. Not impressed at all. The server kept pushing the signature rolls even though we said twice that we know what we like when ordering sushi. $70 for two people for barely mediocre sushi = not worth it. We will not be back.
