    Bread wasn’t warm, then the bao was dry like it had been sitting out. Was going to order a Cesar salad but wanted to try the dressing ahead of time unfortunately our server never remembered. She was busy! Black truffle was delicious! Always our favorite! Unfortunately our server packed ours but we didn’t get it from her so no leftovers for lunch. When we realized we were almost home, next time!

    Outstanding in almost all categories. Just a bit loud when we arrived 7:30 - seated in dining room. By 8:30 noise level had substantially decreased. All dishes were excellent, particularly the pasta. Wonderful wine list with some reasonable bottles - certainly a welcome change from Westside restaurants. My only request would be a few more anchovies on the Ceasar.

    Relative to other times we have visited service was a bit slower (restaurant was very full). Cocktails were excellent. Scallop sashimi was delicious, warm food flavors were a bit heavy for my taste (e.g. Mapo pasta sauce was a bit too spicy and needed either less sauce or more pasta)

    I went with 2 friends for Sunday brunch- there were at least 2 tables with a couple of small children each, all screaming, yelling, crying, misbehaving. I felt like I was in the middle of Dennys! We spent just over $300 for 3 of us, and it wasn’t a good experience. I would not go back.

    Wife took me here with the family for my birthday. Kids had trouble finding menu items that they would eat, but our server made it clear that she could modify to make things tasty for them. Boy was she spot on!! Everyone had a terrific meal. Korean spare ribs were the hit at our table, and the winter salad really hit the spot. Wine choices are really quite good, and every price point is well represented. Overall - we are looking for another chance to spend an evening here. Can’t recommend them enough!

    The staff is so attentive, kind, and thorough. I love the way they take the time to explain the different menu items. They don’t just tell you about the dishes or the drinks, they tell you who created them. I love that because it brings a human quality to the meal. For example, my favorite drink is the grandma’s cigarettes. It is called cigarette because it contains bancha tea. Bancha tea has similar taste properties as that reminiscent of tobacco leaves. Justin is the man behind the cocktail menu and he created this drink because it reminded him of how his grandma used to drink a similar tea. I can’t find a better way to explain just how well the dining details are thought out.

    Delicious food and fun ambience. The milk bread and tobiko nori spread was outstanding - will be dreaming of it for days to come! Also had the mapo pachierri pasta which was really unique. Would 100% come back with a larger party to share / try more things.

    Wait person was rushed and rude. The food was great the first two times but the 3rd time, sub par. For the price and rushing and some other awkward situation with the seating, we won’t be back. It’s turned into “we are a popular restaurant so we could care less about taking care of the customer” kind of place.

    Maybe not a brunch place We were excited to finally try Ryla being fans of Chef Hayashi's but sad to say we were underwhelmed - I had the Eggs Benedict - one of my eggs was hard cooked and the other was perfect... the pork belly was little chunks of fat. And while the house-made biscuit was good it was a little too cake-like with no crunch - I missed the crunch element. To top it off literally the yuzu Hollandaise was good but a little too thick...my friend had the Good Ole Brekkie... the scrambled eggs and 3 slices of bacon were literally slapped on a plate...no garnish no finesse just sad scrambled next to limpy bacon. We did however enjoy the side of potatoes which were very tasty. The chocolate Budino was one of the best we've ever had. Since so many friends have told me how great this place is that I am going to go back for dinner...perhaps Brunch is not their thing...also having a dog wagging his tail all over our table was not great...

    Just too expensive for what it is. The dinner felt rushed. Spending $250+ on a dinner and they over stacked out table with food even though they said they would course it. Literally we were finished with food in one hour exactly - felt rushed. Also the prices for simple drinks are exorbitant and fish that is barely a filet coating $56…

    Enjoyed trying our Ryla for the first time. The space itself is very modern and welcoming. Parking was easy since I found a spot in the very small lot next to the restaurant. I was surprised the hostess seated us in the busy main room when there was clearly space to spread out. Upon asking for a quieter table she quickly accommodated. The waitstaff was attentive, but not particularly welcoming. The eggs benedict was exceptionally tasty. Flavorful without being overly rich. The pork belly was perfectly seasoned with familiar Asian flavors. The Taiwanese crepe was a disappointment. Didn't seem any different than a regular omelet. It was fine to eat despite being overly salted. I would consider coming back just for the eggs benedict and maybe try a different dish as well.

    We were originally a little put off by the prices but the portions were good sized and the food was delicious. We would go back. The 2 of us ordered the arugula salad ( which had a generous portion of fried goat cheese), the Korean ribs ( absolutely yummy) and the sea bass in coconut and it was enough. The Grandma’s Cigarettes cocktail was surprisingly good, and that’s coming from someone who is not a Scotch lover.

    RYLA has the ambience. RYLA has the service. However, I do not think the preparation, taste, and presentation of the food and drinks served do not justify their prices offered. For the same prices, you could easily find a better restaurant that can justify their prices with the quality and quantity of their food.

    I would just like to say that this is an honest review; not intentionally trying to be mean, just honest. RYLA wasn't what it was hyped to be. We ordered several appetizers and the ramen of course. The Japanese bread was good and the spread that came with it was the highlight of the night. The jumbo shrimp were over seasoned (excessive salt) and the spare ribs lacked flavor and meat (almost entirely bones). The ramen was decent. It would have been great if not for the excessive salt in the broth (again why oversalt things?). The staff was very friendly and helpful. So kudos to them. Apologies to our server who had to ask us why we didn't finish most of our food. I couldn't bear to tell her the truth. Ambiance wise, the restaurant is not meant for intimate dates. There are too many tables. The tables are literally half a foot apart from each other, no privacy whatsoever. I think management just wants to get as many people in and out to make a profit. Keeping that in mind RYLA does get packed. It seems the locals enjoy the food here. Which is why I'm not sure if my palate was off that night or maybe they're just too lazy to drive to downtown for quality Japanese. This is just one guy's opinion. Please rate the place for yourself if ever go. I'd love to hear from others. Again wasn't trying to be mean.
