- Just not goodOpenTable Diner Since 2002Dined on 8/19/2014Food was just bad, not taste, presentation was not good, drinks taste like water. There service was just ok I do not plan to return to here.Special Features:
- tonyaVIPDined on 8/16/2014The Viva Las Vegas roll was great! The outside patio is nice. The bar area opens to the outside.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- RA was awesome!AtlLoveDined on 8/10/2014I took my best friend for her birthday. I had been here once before for someone else's birthday, and my best friend loves sushi. She absolutely loved the place! She are for different selections!!! Fun experience. Even a bee came in from outside and tried to enjoy the experience! Lol If you like sushi it's a must try experience!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dinner on the Patio!NOTMYFAVANYMOREVIPDined on 7/24/2014Nice night at RA...food was good, weather was perfect for dining on the patio. Service was great.Special Features:
- Good Food, Bad ServiceAngworldVIPDined on 7/23/2014Suffice it to say that the ATL location can learn a thing from Scottsdale about good servce--that is--getting orders right, checking on tables periodically, etc.
- Food is delicious!Dan2012Dined on 7/23/2014The only reason I didn't give this restaurant 5 stars is because the food takes long to come out and it doesn't all come out at the same time... We all finished eating and my mom was still waiting for her salad! Other than that service was great the food was delicious and the ambiance was nice!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExcellentOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/12/2014The food was outstanding. I love Sushi and this was by far the best in the city.Special Features:
- Poor Service on a Slow nightAndreaATLVIPDined on 7/9/2014Service lately is spotty sitting upstairs or on the Patio. Latest visits consisted of wrong orders and sending food back, not a good look for a random Wednesday late night that was pretty slow. However the bar is always awesome experience, food is great and drinks from the creative bartenders are even better!Special Features:
- ExcellentIshouldweighDined on 7/3/2014This was my first time here, and it was great! The sushi chef made me something unique after I said I like spicy and crunchy! It was delicious, and I would definitely go back for more.Special Features:
- Happy Hour is greatLamewadDined on 6/30/2014You must go to happy hour at Ra. Sushi deals and drink deals that can't be beat.Special Features:
- Very DisappointedOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/28/2014I visited RA about a year ago for a birthday dinner and had an amazing time so I decided to hold my birthday dinner there as well on saturday. The manager and staff we completely uncooperative, they didn't seem to care that it was my birthday and we're not willing to accommodate my party at all. When we were finally seated (separately) they forgot my food...me the birthday girl. I was only served half my meal...sat and waited for an hour and my 2nd request just never came. It was VERY stressful to work with the staff and to then come and not even get served my food was just too much. I do not plan on going back to RA which is sad because the food is amazing.Special Features:
- Very accommodatingOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/27/2014I originally had a group of 8 girls coming to dinner and last minute 12 more showed up an the manager was so nice and helped accommodate our party. The waitress already split our checks without asking and our food was out so quick. Love RA sushi and the staff for being so welcoming!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- lunch with a friendOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/27/2014Excellent ambiance to sit and catch up! The service was fine and food great!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not as good as other locationsJohnVIPDined on 6/14/2014We live in Atlanta but this was our first visit to the Midtown location - have enjoyed Ra locations in Scottsdale, Tucson, and Las Vegas on our travels - excellent sushi in upscale shopping locations. The Atlanta location was a disappointment - sushi not nearly as good, service mediocre, ambiance noisy and inefficient - the restaurant seemed to be about the "scene"Special Features:
- Great sushiOpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 6/12/2014The sushi here is good although the menu is the same ol'thing. Be nice to get more roles and changes on the menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hit & MissDonaldAlexVIPDined on 6/12/2014Some items are good - just good, don't get carried away - and well, some items are flat out bad. Sushi should never taste fishy or like it was purchased from a convenience store. After it's expired date. Great service but there are better, fresher places to dine.Special Features:
- Great SushimlsorrelVIPDined on 6/7/2014Best we've found in Atlanta. And the outdoor seating is fun.Special Features:
- Half-y Birthday to me!happyVIPDined on 5/29/2014Had a great time using my half-y birthday certificate. It was a great excuse for a mid week date night!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GoodBdaygirlDined on 5/24/2014Very very loud!!! The food was great. Our waiter was really helpful and nice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food. Poor service.BirthdaybummerDined on 5/24/2014Wonderful sushi! Had to ask for what we ordered 2-3 times before we received it :(Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Atlanta has much better sushiMarkVIPDined on 5/20/2014I actually live in the high rise building where this restaurant is located so it is VERY convenient for me, although it is typically my last choice when I am hungry for sushi. When dining in, the music is so LOUD you can never have a conversation with anyone at your table (I guess they call that an "energetic atmosphere"). Furthermore, the service has always been lacking - very slow, inattentive and sometimes downright arrogant. My takeout orders are typically wrong at least 50% of the time. The food is good (not excellent), and well presented but Atlanta has much better sushi to offer nearby.
- Good ExperienceMattDined on 5/15/2014Food wasn't amazing, very commercial feeling however, the experience was great inside and outside, along with service. FAST service, fast food prep, and a great selection on the Happy Hour Menu.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Midtown FavoriteKayElleDined on 5/3/2014My friends and I often choose Ra for dinner when dining out in Midtown. The sushi menu is full of funky rolls that never disappoint. (I recommend the Viva Las Vegas Roll!) The prices are comparable to other midtown restaurants.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lively atmosphereAceKinkaidDined on 5/3/2014We've been here a few times, but we went here recently to celebrate my wife's birthday. What I like about this place is that is has good sushi, the atmosphere is awesome, and the prices are pretty reasonable for this type of restaurant in this area of Atlanta. It's great in the Spring and Summer when you can either sit out on the patio and people watch or even sit inside at one of the high top tables when they open the big window. There's also an upstairs area that's nice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dirty 30 dinnersweetpeaDined on 5/1/2014RA was a great location to host my bday dinner. Loved everything about this placeSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Good Service and Good FoodpanyariceDined on 4/7/2014Unfortunately, I forgot the server's name but I definitely remember his face and would have no problem recognizing him next time I visit. He was very accessible, open to answering questions and provided quick service. We ordered solely bar happy hour items. Salmon Carpaccio, Seared Tuna, Calamari, were among a few items we tried. Everything was fresh and prepared perfectly. The server did forget to bring our Miso Soup, but we were sort of thankful because we over ordered. Or is my opinion of the restaurant exaggerated due to my being pleased with the $6 Pinnacle Martini options, lol!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very impressedprsammyDined on 4/5/2014Food was great and so was service. Definitely coming back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delish as usualBuckwildVIPDined on 3/23/2014Ra has yet to disappoint. I've eaten there 4-5 times and it is always deliscious and the servers make the experience a lot of fun.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing Sushi!!KathyHDined on 3/23/2014Love this restaurant and the fantastic sushi!!! Nice wait staff! Always a pleasant experience!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good EveningOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/22/2014My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves. The food is excellent, and reasonably priced. The only negative is that the music is very loud to the point that we were yelling at each other to talk!Special Features:
- We were told they do not pullKYGirlDined on 3/21/2014We were told they do not pull tables together for outside seating. My party of 6 had to sit inside where it was extremely noisy. If I had known this I would have chosen another location with outside seating.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hmmmmm....Ra?BeBeDined on 3/14/2014The food is excellent!!! The service....not so much. Some servers, bartenders & hostesses tend to be rude & unfriendly. The lobster spring rolls & the rackin roll are sooooo tasty!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ra - RahITPFoodieDined on 3/13/2014garlic edamame was good and spicy, Mussels in sake were tender. We shared a sashimi platter and all the fish were fresh and portions generous The atmosphere is 'clubby' so loud music; not an intimate experience . Service - from everyone - was spot on. Gloria was very knowledgable and very attentive without being overbearing - great! I would definitely go back but not a place you linger.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice atomosphere and greatMeff44VIPDined on 3/12/2014Nice atomosphere and great sushi and tempura. I will come back.Special Features:
- The Good, The Bad, The GreatButtaDined on 3/8/2014The Crunchy Shrimp Tempura Roll was delicious. The Grilled Short Ribs...overcooked. Drinks were good. Ambience was nice. Company was terrific. We closed the place down.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- This was an excellent choicegwenacDined on 3/8/2014This was an excellent choice to host my birthday celebration with both friends and family. The food selections were great but most of all the customer service was beyond great. The waiter was very attentative, knowledgable about the menu options, and had such a wonderful attitude the whole night. Thanks, Ra SushiSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It was..... okayKosherPorkDined on 3/1/2014Foods was good. We ate around 9 PM on Saturday, so they were bombarded with a ton of group tables. I didn't feel it was staffed appropriately, as we were just a table of 2, and felt we got looked past a couple of times. Other than that, food was pretty decent, and came out at a decent pace for a place that busy. One thing I would change is the volume/type of music. Seemed loud enough to be a club (and was playing that type of music). Seemed more appropriate for an after hours cocktail hour than a sushi restaurantSpecial Features:
- Horrifically loud club musicOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/28/2014Club meets sushi. Ugh on a Friday night. Beautiful place with zero sophistication.Special Features:
- Great Happy Hour SpecialsTylerDined on 2/24/2014My friend and I decided to check this place out after hearing lots of good reviews. We just happened to arrive during happy hour when they had great food and drink specials. We were both impressed, food was great, and we loved the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Don't botherTroyDined on 2/22/2014I had a reservation at 8 and waited at least 45 minutes to sit down because the hostess "forgot" us. The music was so loud I could barely hear the conversation at the table. I felt like I had to yell all night long and it seemed to have more of a nightclub feel than a restaurant feel. The food was only decent. Certainly not the best sushi I have had. I wont be returning here to eat and I definitely wouldn't recommend this place to friends. The only plus to the whole evening was our waitress. She was very knowledgeable and helpful.Special Features:
