Diner Reviews
  • "I am Japanese and I want authentic Japanese food. This is not for someone like me who wants authentic Japanse food."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Walked into an only half full restaurant yet it took over 5 minutes for the hostess to seat us. Our table was filthy/ sticky and there were several dirty chopsticks on the floor. We left before our waitress arrived. Not sure why anyone would want to dine at such a dirty, poorly run restaurant. We went further down the road to Reel Club in Oak Brook and were thrilled with our meal there."

  • "Great choices, great presentation, great Staff. Sound system was a bit loud and music seemed all over the map. But this was a minor distraction to the evening. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I didn't think the atmosphere was anything special...tables are very close together..food was fine, nothing special that we couldn't find at any other sushi. Miso soup was very good. I personally didn't find our server very friendly..she was fine, it was just that you got the impression she would have liked to have been anyplace else but there."

  • "Also like Ra, best sushi around the Lombard area that I know of. Friendly efficient service, good prices and all the dishes are prepared well."

  • "You can never go wrong, always tasty & always fresh."

  • "Excellent food and service. Everyone was very friendly. The only complaint I have (why I removed one star) is the music was so loud I could not hear across the table to what my wife was saying. I normally dont mind noise, but this was bothersome. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "This is our second time here. We enjoy the sushi, enjoyed half price appetizers for happy hour, enjoy the atmosphere. This time we asked to eat in bar area so we could watch the Hawks game. Service was less than par. That is my only complaint. The waitress had an attitude and we were not sure why. Next time we will sit in restaurant."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food and service was excellent. Our party had no complaints with the quality the food or service. The environment was challenging to conduct conversations with the music volume too high coupled with normal guest chatter. Our suggestion would be to tone down the music and let it serve truly as a subtle background verse part of the main experience."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The sushi is always excellent. The service is almost always subpar - it seems like it's generally understaffed. Water doesn't get refilled, it's hard to flag down a waiter for something you need. Additionally, while it's a great place to take a group, it can be hard to hear a date, as the music is pretty loud. "

  • "We have loved RA Sushi over the years, and been many times. So this most recent visit was a real disappointment. The sushi itself was still excellent, beautifully put together and quick to arrive. But the cooked items our daughters ordered from the "hot kitchen" took an extraordinarily long time to arrive. Kitchens get backed up, of course. But the service was really bad on top of it. The waitress basically didn't check in or give us any updates unless I managed to flag her down, and then directly blamed the kitchen without any apology. Our drinks and water were nearly empty all night, and finally, there was no accommodation or credit for anything on the bill for dealing with all of it. It's too bad - used to be one of our faves"

  • "Eaten here on many occasions. It is a great spot. Great food! Only one time did I ever have an issue and they took care of us promptly. "

  • "Their happy hour prices are unbeatable! It's incredible that you can reserve a table for happy hour as well."

  • "Food is outstanding and the service is always great. Very friendly staff."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The menu is disorganized and confusing and there are not complete descriptions of all the rolls. Our server didn't offer to explain any of the items. All of our food came out very quickly (all at once--not cool) and the rolls were definitely pre-made. They were bland and mushy. The fish was flavorless. We had to ask for wasabi and were not given ginger...what?! Yea, this is NOT a real sushi restaurant. Overall, the ambiance is the best thing going for this place. I will never eat here again. I feel like I need to go out for sushi again because this did not count."

  • "We go their often, the Sushi selection is abundant, service is quick and the food is served with a smile."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Great ambiance and wonderful service start things off right, but its the innovative Sushi. Look on the menu for crowd Favs but try the Las Vegas roll!!!!! It was great! Very showy and I liked the fried lotus root chip on top. We also found that the standard fare like the Tuna and catapillar roll were tasty and very fresh. First time for my son and I and we'll be back!"

  • "I have gone to RA numerous times with just my mother and have had nothing but great things to say. However, I went for my 25 birthday with a group of 6 of my girlfriends and was quite disappointed. The service was terrible. My friend who didn't order sushi received her food 30 minutes later than everyone else. The waitress didn't even alert her that it would take that long until I asked. We never received our edmame until after dinner when I reminded the waitress, and my friend never received the second drink she ordered. I was terribly disappointed. Also the music was soo loud we couldn't even hear each other to converse."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Everyone in our group enjoyed the sushi & tempura, but be prepared to wait a while if ordering something different. We were there on a busy Saturday, however. Noise level is almost too loud to have any conversation!!! Would help if the background music was turned down to a reasonable level. Our server was very personable, helpful, and efficient. We felt the prices were very reasonable."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "food and service are good, but music was way too loud. was like we were at a night club. couldn't hear the person next to you.. pretty much ruined the whole experience. even though the food/service are good, we won't be going back because of this."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Not impressed, inside was nice, but the service was horrible. There were 3 tables leaving shortly after we got there & it still was a forever wait to get seated, order & to get our bill. The music did NOT fit the décor or atmosphere & was VERY loud. I felt like it was a Fri night & I was at some bar/club. I went on a Sunday early evening (6:45) expecting a romantic birthday dinner from viewing the pictures on the website. I basically felt like I was at Panera with dangling sphere lights coming down from the ceiling. If you are looking for casual dinning for a expensive price than this is the place. The food was decent thankfully nothing notable but somewhat made up for the loud music and poor service. I will not be going back here."

  • "My friend found this place when shopping and suggested we go together. I had never heard of it but I like trying new places. We had reservations and were seated promptly upon our arrival. Our waitress was with us very quickly and made sure that we knew all about the happy hour food and drink specials they offered. I was impressed that they offered these deals on a Friday night. Even with the place being full, it felt like we were the only ones there as the waitress was so attentive. The Pineapple Cheese Wontons and Edamame Dip were great starters! We had the Pacific Roll and Viva Las Vegas Roll which both had amazing flavor and awesome presentation. There's no doubt in my mind that we'll be back for a visit again sooner rather than later!"

  • "Great service. Great food. Overall feel of the restaraunt was upbeat and fun. I plan to go back for happy hour in the bar."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The food was very good. We were sat down at our reservation time. It took over 25 minutes to get a drink, not good on a Friday evening. We had to ask the hostess who our waitress was, she did not know, she should know as she sat us down. The table around us were sat down after us and were waited on right away. Off to a bad start. Our waitress as great after she got going. This was our first time at RA. Taking a pause on a return trip."

  • "The service and the food was great! Definitely will come back and recommend to others. I also loved the music in the background. A very fun place for all!"

  • "I love the Viva Las Vegas!! I love bringing friends here to be amazed by the sushi and options. I like the ambiance of the down town location better, but I love to have the same meal options in a more accessible location! Friendly service as well."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "This was a business lunch. The service was good across the board from the servers to the bus people, but everything else could have been improved. The rolls were loose and somewhat warm. The music was too loud; especially for a the restaurant side at lunch hour."

  • "I enjoyed the ambiance and the good was wonderful. Our server was so delightful."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "The restaurant is a very cool atmosphere with plenty of decorations. The sushi is better than most in the area with some really good specialty rolls. The service is a little lacking however, the 3 times I've been it's always fairly difficult to find my server."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "good food, cocktail specials and service. Close to the mall, shopping and movies. A plus overall...we will be back."

  • "If you are in the suburbs and want really tasty sushi, I highly recommend RA Sushi in Lambard. Fantastic service, tasty menu and fantastic drinks. Love, love, love the place."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "We decided at the last minute to go out for dinner on Christmas night. RA was the only place we could get a reservation on such short notice. We were a little skeptical, but the experience did not disappoint. The food was seasoned well, portions were appropriate (not too big, not too small), and the menu was true to the restaurant's niche. Overall, the food was excellent.The service was a little off, but the waiter explained that they had significantly underestimated the number of customers for the day so they were understaffed. But, the server handled it professionally, and we all left completely satisfied. I give RA Sushi two thumbs up."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "This place is just right for an occasion that's in between formal and informal. It's allows you to fulfill that sushi craving without breaking the bank. In other words, the quality is great for reasonable and unbeatable prices. The service is just right (kind and you get the food quick). The noise level is bit louder as it gets later in the evening, but since we went at late afternoon/early evening, there was less people and therefore, not very loud."
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "If you love sushi, hit RA Sushi Bar during happy hour. The prices are extremely reasonable and the sushi is off the chain. My family and I will get our sushi on frequently at RA."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Some of the best sushi. Viva Las Vegas roll, dynamite roll, lobster spring rolls, calamari roll/tempura."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "We have been to RA before and the sushi has always been good. They have some nice combinations and always presented well. Try the hot mess but order it right away since it takes time to bake. Our only negative is it's always loud. If your looking for a nightclub or bar feel then it will be perfect. Even with that we will go back because we like the food that much."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "Awesome sushi! My wife and I have tried other places but RA is hands down the best. Our particular favorites are the "Hot Mess" and "Viva Las Vegas". Very trendy with a good selection of lounge/ club music and friendly, attentive wait staff. The only thing we didn't care for was the Cinnamon Gelato, not that great. Definitely coming back!"
