    Food was excellent but this place was loud. It was packed like a subway and had the noise to come with it. Hard to have a conversation until after it cleared out a bit.

    Great sushi, atmosphere, drinks. A place to go and have a nice time that isn't exactly a "bar" or "club". Our waitress was horrible though, she kept bringing us the wrong drinks and wouldn't check up on us. We had to go up to her a few times to let her know what we needed since she would keep talking to the bartender. I'm sure not all their service is like this though.

    I made an online reservation for 12:30pm and was seated immediately. There wasn't a big crowd to begin with, but I enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. Our party consisted of 8 in which 2 were 12 yr olds. I ordered the Bento Box lunch for them and they really enjoyed it. I ordered 3 different rolls and was not very impressed. They have many rolls with exotic twist to them but I think they lacked flavor. I had the mango/avacado but tasted too much cream cheese. The spicy yellowfish was good but not spicy enough. The sushi platter was average. I've had better sushi elsewhere but we came here to celebrate a birthday. I probably will return only for HH and drinks. Overall it was still a nice experience.

    We had a very friendly and informative waiter, cant remember his name, with cool eyewear. Served us well and we enjoyed our time. The place wasn't as busy as usual which was nice as we could just enjoy a quiet meal outside. I had a gin gimblet or whatever, wich was a really tasty drink, first one was better than 2nd one which was a bit too sweet for my personal taste, but a very good suggestion from our waiter.

    Our waitress Veronica was excellent. She was very friendly, personable and also knowledgeable about the menu. She was attentive and responsive to our needs (we were there w/ our 2 year old twins). The food was delicious but it was Veronica who made our dining experience great. Thank you Veronica! We had the RA Tapas Seared Tuna, Viva Las Vegas Roll, Tuna Tataki, Edamame, Chicken Yakisoba & the crispy White Fish tacos.

    This is a trendy sushi restaurant with great sushi. We were there during happy hour. They have great deals at that time. The food is delicious & our waitress was excellent. The hostess marked us as a no-show on our open table reservation but after speaking to the manager the next day he fixed the issue right away. Thank you!!! I would definitely recommend this place.

    I usually don't have many issues with RA Sushi, but yesterday was extremely busy because of Happy Hour all day because of Tax Season. The service was horrible and our waitress would check on us like literally every 30 minutes. To say the least, we were happy to leave.

    The hostess. We had reservations; we were there a few minutes early. She told us that there were tables, but none were cleaned. So she could not prepare for a known reservation? So she asked us to wait. So we waited at the bar. About 25 minutes go by, with her walking by us and seating others, so finally after staring at 2 open tables, I go ask her how much longer. She looks right at me and says, oh I'm sorry, I forgot about you. I can seat you now. All I can say is there's a reason why she's only a hostess. After that the experience was absolutely amazing. We are dying to go back.

    I love the sushi here and the location but parking at the City Centre is ALWAYS an issue. They have 2 levels of NO parking(reserved or valet) and this time the elevators weren't working. It isn't a reflection on the restaurant but it does impact my decision to frequent Ra as I don't always feel like putting up with trying to find a spot to park

    RA Sushi is always great and we've been there before with smaller groups for lunch. The food is quality is great and the taste is excellent. I will probably go back there with my usual group but I will think twice before bringing in a big group. I didn't get a feel that the waitress had command of the situation. we had about 10 people there and it was kind of a mess. We had a lot of food coming to the table and the old dishes weren't being cleaned up quickly enough to keep pace with the food runners bringing in huge plates with the sushi and apps. you should definitely try it out. The food is fantastic just keep in mind large groups.

    The seating selection was excellent and the venue looked just as it does online, and that usually doesn't happen, so I was truly pleased. First time visit, but definitely not the LAST!
