Diner Reviews
  • "I planned to eat here as part of my friends bachelorette weekend. We had made our reservation for 12 but had 10 show. We had a large table that was perfect so everyone could interact. They were very accommodating toward our group. I would go here again if planning a similar event."

  • "We had a group of 15 and wanted somewhere that was fun and laid back. The service and food were good but that wasn't all of our focus. We wanted a place that had top 40 music kinda loud but not too loud like a bar. It was a perfect place for this."

  • "Fantastic service, reasonable prices, and an extensive food and beverage menu. Sushi was crafted to perfection and the presentation of the food was spectacular."

  • "Let's start with the hostess...we made reservations for 4, but last min decided to have 5 for dinner. Showed up 30 min before our reservation so we could inform the changes. You would have thought we told her we were having 10 people!!! So rude about the addition!! Second....our waiter, it took him nearly 15 min to ask us if we wanted any beverages. He was slow on getting us refills & did not know the menu when we had questions. I wanted a very particular item he told me was available only to find out it was not. Next, we were charged a 18% gratuity for having a party of 5....most places it's 8 & above! Food was not consistent several of the same items were purchased & none of them looked similar. Bad experience from start to finish!"

  • "We really enjoyed the experience we had at Ru San's. The server was great to point out menu options and the sushi was fantastic. Our server was very busy and we had to wave him down a few times but overall excellent experience. Not a place for a quiet romantic dinner but for a fun evening it was perfect."

  • "My girlfriend and I just recently got back together and we both enjoy a more fun, high-energy atmosphere and Ru-San's definitely has that. Very fast paced place and constant club music may not be what some look for in an Asian restaurant....but with some shots or just some drinks and a group or someone you can have fun with this place is great. AMAZING food, she had the best chicken fried rice I've ever tasted and I had some type of spicy tuna roll and some fried calamari- both of which went amazingly with a Sapporo and some water :) 9 out of 10 -- the highest rating I'll give on a restaurant ;)"

  • "I cannot believe we have not tried Ru San's. This restaurant is excellent. The sushi was great. The volcanic trio of tuna sashimi was out of this world! The crispy crab roll was prepared perfectly. The fried ice cream was excellent as well and is large enough for 2. The menu was creative and extensive. The atmosphere is rather loud but the food is the star."

  • "We chose to eat here for my boyfriends 30th bday...we weren't a HUGE group..only 12 of us. The food was great, as always, but the service was terrible. It took 35 minutes to get our sake...I told them clearly it was his bday, and even when the reservation was made that it was his bday, yet nothing was still done to "celebrate". We went in and spent a lot of money...i just wish the experience had been a little different. Definitely not a great first impression for the few who had never been. Wouldn't recommend it as a "group" celebration place. However, food was great ...definitely the place to go if you're a sushi lover."

  • "Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing, but my food was pretty disappointing. I ordered the bacon wrapped scallops (supposedly a top seller) and they came out overcooked with more bacon than scallop on the little skewers. The bed of veggies and rice was okay, but the main feature was gross. The drinks were also pretty disappointing. I will say the one sushi roll we got was decent."

  • "Back home (Charlotte, NC), the Ru San's there is amazing. I assumed this one would be too. The sushi selection did not disappoint. My friends were ecstatic to have so many options from which to choose. One guy even had seared tuna just because he loves it so much. To their credit, the good folks at Ru San's cooked it exactly how he wanted it. I personally have no complaints- we received exactly what we wanted."

  • "We had a party of 8. Our waiter was fabulous. Service we very good. Music a little loud. Had a hard time having conversation. Food was good. Love the area. Fine place to have a cocktail and a little sushi."

  • "Next to high rises and contemporary restaurants, boot shops and lots of traffic, sits this restaurant. Small front, but deep room and definitely a great affordable menu. Good beer selection and great service staff. I haven't had tuna so fresh and tender in a long time"

  • "Had the best time at RuSans this past Sat. We had a large group of 14 and were ordering a lot of food and alcohol... Any server knows that is a LOT to keep up with. Our server was so organized and great about splitting our checks. He had a great personality and was so much fun for everyone- definitely kept us feeling festive. We will be back for sure-- and request him!"
