Diner Reviews
  • "I was not a fan of sushi at all until my friend invited me out to eat some. I only eat cooked sushi so when I had the Rackin roll and the vegas roll I instantly fell in love!! Ray is my favorite server there!!! I'd eat there 4x a month or more if I could :) :)"

  • "Had the best service ever! Wish I could remember her name. We came in on Sunday around 4:00pm and had a great experience. A few people in our party were having sushi for the first time. The server was amazing!"

  • "My girlfriend and I were in Baltimore for our belated anniversary and found RA online and figured we'd check it out (she's a huge sushi fan). We made a reservation (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!) and it happened to be on the night they were having their customer appreciation night. Not only was everyone who came entered in to win a $200 gift certificate to the restaurant, but we were also each given coupons for a free appetizer or plate of sushi for our next visit. Our visit was incredible, the food is fantastic and the portions are quite large. Our waitress was excellent as well. We will definitely be going back the next time we head to Baltimore and will be checking it out in other cities too."

  • "If you like sushi, this place is pretty awesome. Rolls are delicious, service is great. Only downside is that the place is typically loud. I've only ever seen it crowded, and they blast music. But if you can deal with that, you'll love RA!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I am not sure how people socialize at dinner, the music is deafening. You can't talk to your company unless you are shouting or whispering into someone's ear. I am not sure how that is conducive to a good time. They could lower the volume 10 decibels and still have the vibe they are trying to achieve and people would actually be able to talk to each other. I like going to clubs and I expect there to be loud music because all I will be doing is dancing and drinking. I go out to eat because I want to spend time with people and catch up. I couldn't do that and left with a spitting headache. Perhaps I can't hang because I am not in my twenties. I like the food and will continue to go for lunch, but never dinner again."

  • "Ra has fantastic sushi, the prices get a bit high if you don't have a discount but I highly recommend that you join their "get hooked" program because they have great specials and promotions on a reasonably frequent basis. The specials are really great deals as well, this week they had two people eat for $25 with 4 rolls of sushi and edamame (would have been $60!). The ambiance is great but it is often crowded so make sure you make a reservation!"

  • "I love RA because they have different and unique rolls. The atmosphere is fun and it is just a great dining experience. I also love the Hook Up program. RA provides great deals for their customers."

  • "Though our server was pleasant and attentive, it is not because of her that we will not return. Haley was a gem...she was the highlight of our meal. Sushi rolls that didn't stay together when picking up and only mediocre in taste. As for that music...that was the biggest thing that we had a problem with from the moment that we walked in. YOU CAN'T HAVE A CONVERSATION WITHOUT SHOUTING. THERE IS NO REASON, THAT I CAN POSSIBLY THINK OF, TO HAVE THE DECIBELS QUITE SO HIGH FOR A DINING ROOM. IF YOU WANT TO BE A NIGHTCLUB....BE THAT....BUT YOU'RE A DINING ESTABLISHMENT AND THE SELECTIONS CHOSEN FELT LIKE JERSEY IN THE 80S. Poor management decisions and handling of situations were the clincher for us and we won't be returning."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Awesome place and meal! Would go again. Enjoyed the fact that it was not too crowded. Probably because it was a Sunday night. Hear the place is very popular and usually packed."

  • "Everything was fantastic, as usual. The service was above and beyond, the food was delicious, and this remains one of our favorite spots in the neighborhood."

  • "Food and drinks were great as usual. Our server (Brittany) wasn't very attentive. Turn off. Had to ask other staff to bring boxes or condiments and silverware etc. Things she should have been doing. She said she was assigned a new section and apologized, but I don't find that to be an excuse for hardly paying us attention."

  • "My experience at RA was truly perfect. I went there for the first time for my boyfriend's birthday. I had never had sushi but I had heard great things about RA so I decided to try it out. This place was FUN, really cool ambiance, music is great, server was excellent (she answered all my questions and walked me through the entire menu since I had so many questions). The food was delicious and drinks were amazing too (check out their drinks menu). I don't know what else to say, it was perfect. if you are looking for a fun date night this is the place."

  • "you get a lot of sushi for your dollar here. fish is fresh. the more americanized sushi dishes are pretty decent too. the place is pretty casual and loud, so it is good for groups."

  • "Hubby and I had a great meal, and the prices for the sushi were more reasonable than we remember, but we had a hard time hearing each other as the music was really loud. On top of that we had tables near us that were also loud ( but they were large groups instead of couples). We've been there before, and we plan to return, but maybe earlier... We wonder if the volume gets turned up later in the evening??"

  • "Great service. Servers are polite, knowledgeable, and attentive. Management is excellent. Food was amazing."

  • "The food was not very good, granted we broke a cardinal rule of going on a Sunday to a Sushi place but it was still not very good. We ordered the Pinapple Cheese Wantons, they were okay but we paid for it later. We had massive hard burn the whole night the only explination was that maybe the oil had not been changed out properly or at all. We then Ordered the Shrimp Tempura Roll and a few others. Rule of thumb if you can't remember what you ordered, it was not worth meantioning. The Service was outstanding, however I hate when waitresses kneel in front of me, not professional. Ambience was cool very Modern Asian Fusion. We will not be going back."

  • "Had a really nice time for a post-Valentine's Dinner with a friend. They had never had sushi before and the menu explained everything well. The 2 for $30 was an amazing deal. We definitely will be back!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I eat at RA about once every two weeks. This was my first time for the buy one entree get one free Tuesday lunch. The service was not up to the usual standards and took too long. Our party of 7 sat at the sushi bar since there were no tables for large parties."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Ra is great for any event but especially a great happy hour spot. The sushi is awesome and it comes out relatively quickly. There happy hour specials have a lot of half off prices on drinks and sushi."

  • "We really enjoyed our night at Ra Sushi & will definitely return to try some different items on the menu since everyone sounds so good. Our server Sarah was very friendly & attentive. The music may be too loud for some but we didn't mind it at all."

  • "My parents took me to RA for my birthday. Our server was friendly and made useful recommendations, but didn't necessarily keep our preferences we told him in mind when making these. We left full and happy. And as a nice surprise they brought out free ice cream after learning it was my birthday. I look forward to returning again soon."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "This was our first time at RA, we are not really familiar with Sushi styles. Our server did ask if we had been there before and I mentioned that we do not eat sushi often, he just told us to ask if we had questions, so we basically chose blindly. The food was very good, we had a combo of both cooked and raw rolls, the drinks and service were good and the ambiance was excellent. We will do our research and return!!"

  • "11 family and friends met up and ordered a dozen of various sushi plates. Brittany, our server, was on point with drinks and food. Very impressed that Baltimore's harbor east has a really good sushi restaurant."

  • "The music was so loud that you could barely hold a conversation, def not somewhere I would take a 1st date."

  • "Came in a few weeks ago. It was a first date with someone. Brought the wrong food twice and forgot drinks once all in about an hour span. Food was very good though!"
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "Maybe a bit too energetic... Low light & loud music wasn't an issue until it came time to communicate with my female acquaintance. The cocktails were original and flavorful, the appetizers were amazing, but a great deal of time passed before our entrees became available to us. There was mix up with one of our dishes, but we were afraid of the time it might take to correct the mistake. So we merely ate what we were brought. The server also never really checked in on us. We went with no beverages on 3 different occasions. The place seemed to be filled to capacity, but with reservations made in advance, we were seated immediately. The hostesses were great!"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Both the hostess and waitress were outstanding. Best service I have had in years. The food was okay. Good even, but not great. The food was fresh but a little bland. Nothing more than average. This was a place I tried once and enjoyed, but probably won't go again."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "Had a surprise bday party for my boyfriend in November for about 15 people and RA was absolutely amazing!! Couldn't have been better! Gave us a couple different options of how to split check which was amazing which can often be problem with groups--not a problem at all at RA."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "The only reservation available for online was 10:15 p.m on a Saturday night. We got there at 8:30, they said it could take up to an hour. By the time we ordered a drink at the bar our table was ready. Sat at the sushi bar, chefs were friendly and would answer any questions about food. Sushi was delicious, great Sake list, Margarita special for $6. A little pricey but on pace with the area and the quality."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Great food, but at dinner, the music is so loud you have to scream to talk to whomever you came with (think Hard Rock Cafe). Lunch is much preferred. Sashimi, fried garlic shrimp and pot stickers are particularly excellent."

  • "This was my first time at RA but it's my daughter's favorite and it was her birthday. I am not a Sushi fan but this restaurant offers some traditional dishes that are yummy. The only problem seemed to be a not so expanded beer list. My husband had a hard time getting a beer he liked and he's not picky."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Amazing food! Best sushi we ever had with big portions. Great prices with the happy hour menu."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Excellent food and service. Enjoyed this experience. A little difficult to carry on a conversation, as the noise level was vibrant. Understand that it was Happy Hour and lots of activity. Good place to wind down after a day at work."
