Diner Reviews
  • "Creative maki rolls, good flavor. Not the greatest sushi I've ever had but definitely a solid "very good" (read much better than average). The rolls are different from your standard fare and the presentation is very good. Service was excellent - friendly, prompt, and on the spot without being overbearing. Indoors had a hip, progressive vibe, outdoor seating was very nice without too much road noise and a good mix of sun and shade options."

  • "Been going here for years. Love the sushi and it's always fresh and consistently good."

  • "Our server was very nice, not pushy, and our waters were refilled promptly without request. That was the best part of our experience. The food was only decent. Some dishes were good, but some maki were bland. The hot (spicy) miso soup was too spicy for my wife to finish the entire bowl, and she's from a culture that has very spicy food. The noise, a combination of the music and the bar, was so loud that conversation was very difficult. We don't expect to return."

  • "I have yet to find my favorite sushi spot but this was pretty good. My biggest complaint would be to turn down the bumpin n grindin music! "

  • "The Las Vegas Roll is the business. The food was great, but the location is so small and crowded that you have to yell for your companions to hear you. "

  • "It was a special occasion, and have never been to the Ra's Sushi restaurant before. We walked in, got the table right away (because we reserved one! :D ) and was waited on promptly. The food was absolutely stupendous! We ended up grabbing a couple drinks, and sharing 5 rolls between the two of us. I highly recommend the Crazy Monkey Roll, and the Lobster Mango Roll.. But all of the food was great. The drinks were refreshing, but a little on the weak side as far as alcoholic content. All in all, an excellent experience. I plan on going again soon!"

  • "The downtown location is always fun and they play music along with great sushi. Brody made our experience more fun than usual. He was personable and professional. I've been to RA Sushi in both Lombard and Chicago location. This was my best experience."

  • "RA Sushi was a fabulous place to dine for Valentine's day. Right away we were taken to our table. Our waitress was very helpful and very friendly. The Valentine's Day menu was great. It was a great deal and it did not disappoint. From he starter to the dessert, it was fantastic and very tasty. The cocktails were also very delicious. It was a great dining experience and I look forward to going back."

  • "My husband and I went to RA sushi for their valentine's day special. The special included it a dinner for 2 for $30, one app, two entrees and a desert to share, it was delicious! You pretty much can't beat that price for good sushi. The restaurant is kinda loud but really upbeat, definitely geared toward young adult crowd. Awesome drink menu as well."

  • "The service was poor. We had a party of five and they sat us at a four-top table with two chairs on one of the sides and there was plenty of room in the restaurant and empty tables. Needless to say it was cramped, and we made reservations earlier in the week. Our waitress was not attentive. We will not be returning."

  • "Since this was our first time the waitress could have been a little more helpful . She asked if it was our first time and then left it at that. We wre left to figure out the three menus she dropped off. Oh well , we survived. Other than that the food was fresh and we enjoyed our visit."

  • "We went to RA this weekend, and our overall experience was great. The sushi variety was great and we loved each roll we got. Our server was also very prompt and continued to check on our drink orders. If you live in the area or want to venture out to Gold Coast, I highly recommend."

  • "Food was decent but service was very sub par. Sat down and took 15 mins for waiter to acknowledge us. The bar was way behind. 15 mins on every drink order. Waiter forgot to order our edamame. Waiter forgot to enter one of our entree orders. Sushi came out very quick. A little too loud as it made it tough to carry on a conversation. It would tough to consider a return."

  • "Very good food. Had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes for a seat... This was pretty disappointing. Really good happy hour deals though."
