I’ve eaten here a few times with a coworker and on a date...Waitress was fantastic tonight, sorry I didn’t get her name. She took pics for us and laughed with us too... My niece was in town from Mississippi, I’d been promising her dinner at Ra for the past 5 years and it was epic!!!

Checked in and was immediately seated. Online the only seats available said counter, standard was greyed out, but I was told it was too early to seat (it was empty, and so was 3/4 of the restaurant but it was Cinco de Mayo) so was given a regular 4 top table by the kitchen door. I was not given options, as I would have liked the outside seating on the back side of the bar that was empty, it was a really nice day and quite a few people on the patio. 2 other tables near me were sat after me, and both were attended by waitstaff before me. A waiter assigned to the patio happened to see me still without food or drink and quietly asked if I had been helped, I shook my head no. He quickly took my drink order. He then came back a few minutes later and took my food order. Not sure why the server in my area ignored me, but I was happy the other guy took my table over and he was very attentive when he came by. Sunday is happy hour all day after 3 PM. And they had Cinco de Mayo drink specials. Their Empress Patron Margarita was half price and good deals on happy hour. I had the seaweed salad, pineapple crab rangoon, and shrimp tempura with a mango Empress Margarita and a small hot sake. Everything was really good. Then I got the coconut creme brulee. It was more like an egg custard/soft omelette, very eggy in taste. The service I got was great, once I got it. I heard others talk it is under new management, so I hope things are improving.

Chose this restaurant for the proximity to our hotel. Great patio. That's where it goes down from there. The hostess didn't want to sit us on the patio, she said it would be a 30 to 45 minute wait. However we noticed a family had just last. She said she would sit us there once they cleared the table. We sat in Sierras section, super pleasant but.....one of the servers delivered sushi rolls that we didn't order. We all know how it is when ordering multiple rolls of sushi and they are all delivered at once, cant remember what you even ordered. Sooooo, when we started eating and enjoying the sushi, Sierra came by later and said "my server in all black delivered these two to the wrong table, do you remember who it was?" Really????? They are all in "all black!". So we said, nope sorry. Well then we get our bill, no flippin joke, she charged us for those 2 rolls. Seriously?! Will never be back.

Not sure where to begin. I've been to Ra in other cities and it was amazing. But not here. I felt like the moment we walked in it was closing time because everyone seemed to be scrambling to close down the restaurant (8:30pm reservation). They had no silverware, we were given plastic utensils and chopstix (My wife thought this whole experience was hilarious because she knows I write reviews), I was fine with the chopstix, it's the principalities. My dragon roll didn't taste like anything, neither did my Happy Hour priced roll. I got no ginger or wasabi, which I use, unlike most people. They never took the giant menus off of my table. The chairs felt like they were sliding on ice, maybe they had just mopped, maybe was just a bad choice of chairs for that type of floor (Insert wife laughter). I was criticized about my drink choice and felt like it wasn't what I order (Insert wife laughter). Our egg rolls tasted like the frozen kind you get from Walmart. We didn't know how to feel about the top opened soy sauce teapot they had at the table. The fried rice we shared was supposed to be salmon, but the water was so busy criticizing my drink choice that I watched him write chicken instead of salmon, but I let that slide cause it didn't matter at this point, AND it was brown rice and I feel like you should tell somebody if yo fried rice is brown rice, again principalities. My wife order chicken wings that were mediocre at best and the waiter gave me my check before the wings came out. Just the check too, no booklet just the paper check (Insert wife laughter). My water got refilled right before I paid, but after the wings came out. My wife left 2 wings on the plate and she never does that, because she loves wings. SO, with all that being said, maybe it was closing time, maybe the happy hour crowd was overwhelming, maybe people got called in that day that normally doesn't work, IDK. But, NEVER AGAIN I SAY, NEVER AGAIN!

I doubt we will return. The service was awful- we saw other servers walking around multiple times, but could never find ours. We were his only table and still could not get timely service. He was not familiar with the menu and had to leave our table to “go find the answer.” When he returned to the table he had forgotten to find the answers. The inside of the restaurant was basically empty -maybe two or three other tables, so there was no reason for the lack of service.
The sushi tasted old-very fishy. We had to ask multiple times for soy sauce and there was no ginger or wasabi to accompany the rolls we ordered.
The restaurant felt dirty as well. Not the most pleasant dining experience.

I can't believe I am even wearing this email....
Nor can I believe that I have the same TERRIBLE server as the last time I visited. It's almost like a bad version of punked. But my son asked to come as he loves it here. So we waited for her to finish her personal conversation an return to our table...
My order came with soup...I had to ask for it 10 mins after she came back...But also had to send back my appetizer that came out cold. Mind you after 10 mins was even colder...when she returned was the ONLY time she checked on our table as she went back to continue talking with her friend at the front.But at lease it wasn't like last time when she ate and scrolled thru her phone while we had no service at all... When she returned to get our empty dishes we were attempting to place another order but that didnt transpire for another 15 mins. Why..because she left so fast as we were clearly looking at the menu and returned with THE CHECK in passing as if..I'm done with you pay and leave.
So what did we do..wait for her return for payment to place the order. I had zero expectations of a repeat horrible experience... Was completely open to a good lunch with my son on spring break. Amazingly A repeat disappointment... mind you this entire email is writing sitting WAITING FOR HER TO COME BACK TO OUR TABLE.
Truly a disappointment.
Thanks

The hostess was quite rude. She did not check me in and when I asked her to confirm my reservation via Open Table she stated that “we don’t do that. “I don’t know what you’re talking about” “I’ll go get my manager because I have never heard of that” and then walks away. I’ve dined at Ra Sushi for years and made reservations and I have never had a bad experience until tonight.

First it took an hour to get our drinks and one of appetizers. We returned the fried rice we ordered because it was both under and over cooked and overly seasoned. The goyzas were overcooked as well. The waitress was nice and explained the kitchen and bar is backed up but at that point the slow service was irritating... the food is a fail.

We got sushi with no soy sauce, ginger or wasabi on the plate. The sushi was okay...nothing special. So disappointed by this place. But the ambiance is nice!

I love RA. It is one of my favorite places to eat. I always go during happy hour which is everyday and the hours vary. The food is always good especially for the price. Some of my favorite rolls are the scallop dynamite, viva Las Vegas and the calamari roll. I also enjoy the pork gyoza (dumplings) and the shrimp tempura appetizer. The only negative thing I can say is that sometimes it takes a while for a server to greet the table but that’s not a big deal to me.

I made this reservation over a week before the date and when I got there they couldn’t find it at all. I even confirmed it the day before. I showed them that and they still acted as though they didn’t want to seat us when clearly we made a reservation. It was so unorganized. We reserved to sit at the counter but got the worst seats in the place. Not rushing to go back here at all.

Took at least 15 minutes before anyone checked in to bring us water or ask for a drink order. We got a bottle of wine and were told they had no wine glasses, not a huge deal, but weird. The server stopped in regularly until we had our food and then disappeared. We ended up stopping another server to ask for our check after waiting more than 20 minutes after we all finished our food.

Food was just okay, not great.
