Not sure why this place received only 3.5 stars on Yelp, my friend and I liked it! Food was good, atmosphere was nice. :)

Dinner for 2 people took 2 hours. There were only 3 waiters/bartenders/servers combined. Service was horrible.

This was our second visit to Ra sushi. We wanted to try the happy hour menu. The food was great and comes out pretty fast. Drinks are pretty good too, I had the mango emperor margarita. Service is great too as waiters come by the table often.

Unhappy with the host staff. Made us feel not welcomed and they were very unfriendly.

The hostess refused to sit us inside even though we had a reservation and were barely late. Server didn’t bring us a fork for our rice for 20 minutes and pretended everything was gonna be ok like if our food didn’t just get cold. Our entrees came out 10 minutes apart.

- 20 min before server came by table
- Seated outside in 40 degree weather when tables were open inside
- No heaters worked
- Every food item we ordered was taken to the wrong table
- One entree was delivered after the check arrived
- Miso soup that was ordered never came, no ginger or wasabi with sushi?
- The experience took about 2 hours for 2 people with simple orders
- Overall the service and experience was trash

The restaurant is meh at best and the food is subpar for the price. If you really want good sushi please go to Maiko on W 6th St. The prices are better and the food is phenomenal.

Our reservation was at 7:45 and we didn’t get seated until 8:30. We even tired to just eat at the bar but didn’t get a menu for 15 mins

I have eaten at RA in Scottsdale and found it to be a very different experience. The Austin Restaurant is more of a bar than restauant and does not have the upscale feel and quality of the Arizona restaurant. Frankly I was surprised.

Good food and view. There were a few noisy tables around us but that’s expected during happy hour.

Service was overall excellent.

Have to say it’s kind of like the fast food or airport version of a Sushi Restaurant.

The Shrimp Roll was cold, the Yellowtail was a thick cut, the Ponzu sauce was like a bbq sauce, the Edamame tasted like it had been frozen and defrosted a few times.

Our server a Johnny was a delight and the drinks were pretty good.

Wasn’t the worst meal ever but I can’t imagine going back.

Arrived with a party of 7. We were sat on the patio which was more or less the only area that would accommodate us however our party were the only people on the poorly lit patio so it appeared we were left out in the cold literally. Every persons order was brought to the table 1 item at a time over a period of about 45 minutes. 1 item brought out that wasn’t even ours and when we advised that we didn’t order it the staff came back to table to argue about it. As the host of a business dinner with a key client it was embarrassing to say the least. Ra sushi has produced better but fell very short on this dinner.

There was good sushi but not the highest quality. It was very dirty around the tables. It could use a good beep cleaning once a week. It seems to be a nightlife kind of place.

Trendy atmosphere, and decent aesthetic, but mediocre food and service so bad it was confusing. Server was indistinguishable from a random passerby, was friendly but oblivious, brought food but no plates, no napkins.

Doors were opened for the DJ and letting all the cold air in for the restaurant. There wasn’t enough people to justify that and music was super loud

Very good food and service. Music got a little loud after 7 with a DJ in place. Definitely will be going back.
