    We reserved a party of 15 for my fiancé ' s birthday, a surprise dinner event and the host ruined it when we walked in the door. There were special directions in the reservation notes. The waitress was not kind.

    I highly recommend RA to anyone in Scottsdale. Though it seems strange to go to the desert for fish, it was extremely fresh and delicious. The tunacado was perfectly seared and thinly cut. The sauce that accompanied it was the perfect compliment.

    Dinner for 6. Placed our orders (total of 8 rolls, and couple single plates) and waited, and waited, and waited. Sushi "chef" seemed to randomly make orders; server would bring 1 roll - and nothing else for 10 minutes or longer, but yet there were other diners at other tables receiving their orders. Server excuse? "Kitchen backed up - and we serve family style" Well, if kitchen really backed up, then other plates shouldn't being going out while we are still waiting. Took HOUR and HALF (90 minutes) before 8th roll was made and delivered! Wait staff was inattentive; cups remained unfilled and dirty plates remained. And - sushi was not all that good when it finally arrived - ouch. Save your time and money - go elsewhere!

    Food is good, service was okay, as the requests made were not accurate and had to be reordered. Sitting outdoors along the busy road was noisy. I've been to various RA establishments and the Old Town Scottsdale location would be my least favorite. I had out of town guests with me and were hungry for sushi so we stopped. I would have chosen another location.

    Open table reservation was not on their system. They said they have been having problems with OT. So I guess we didn't get points for it?

    Made a reservation for a group of 5 this past Saturday night. We all showed up on time and had had to wait over 20 mins for our table. What was the point in even making a reservation? The front desk girls were very inexperienced and unprofessional. They kept lying stating that our table was just being cleared and was almost ready. Horrible service

    The Sushi selection was excellent, the quality high and the presentation excellent. One of our favorite items was the "Hot Mess". The atmosphere is nothing special but the food is worth the trip.

    The service was slow and they ran out of glasses to service my soda, I don't understand how that could happen when the restaurant wasn't at full capacity. Sushi was as expected and service could improve proper management.

    I chose this restaurant b/c it was highly recommended on the web. It was a beautiful restaurant with many wonderful choices of sushi to choose from. Many that my wife and I had never heard of before, but we are adventerous and were willing to try them out. Best decision ever we loved the overall service, selection of drinks, and of course food. The prices were not outrageous either, which makes for a wonderful dinning experience.

    When you come to this RA Sushi location, you will be extremely fortunate should you have Derek be your waiter. He is truly wonderful -- very attentive, personable, caring while not being intrusive at all. In all our visits there, by ourselves as a family or with friends, he remains consistently SUPERB. The other wait staff members are all good, but no one is better... =)
