The service from the hostess to our server was great. The filet and lobster was really good. I get that perhaps they didn't have many servers but I think they should have the front and back rooms open to better distance guests. But again, maybe they just need more help? Overall, I’ll return.

Came in on a weeknight with a reservation. Two other tables in our section (dining room low top tables). Sat right away and a server came by within 5 minutes. After that the server was hard to get. Food came out as it was ready without breaks. My wife got her entree about 30 minutes before I received mine and she was finished before I started on my own. Server never checked on us. I managed to get his attention to order a drink but had to flag him down 10 minutes later while he was talking with other staff by the hostess stand, and he said he never placed the order. We were never asked how the food was and never asked if we needed anything else. Other things I noticed, staff member picking her nose and flicking it in the floor. Staff gathering in corners laughing and talking with each other. Flooding in the kitchen, not sure if that was their attempt at cleaning an hour prior to close or a very large “spill” as it was fixed with large squeegees. Staff wearing masks and removing them as they walk through the kitchen door, either wear it or don’t I personally don’t care but some might. The general smell of the restaurant was not clean. Table was sticky and I wiped it down with a napkin myself. Lastly, the food was nothing special, I would not recommend this restaurant.

The food was great the service .. not so great. My bf and I go there all the time and the server we had was not as attentive as the other servers we’ve had in the past. Barely gave us water, had to ask. And we also had to keep asking him to clear our plates. On top of that, he was hovering over me when he gave me his portable credit card machine I guess to see how much I was going to tip him.

We love Ra, just last night’s experience was not that great

We went for a quick little bite to eat and the food was good but the service was terrible . We arrived and they wanted to place us at this cramped table in between two or three parties mind you it was relatively empty. Then we finally sat down and our server didn’t come to greet us for about 10 minutes. After those 10 minutes he didn’t come back with our waters for another 10 minutes and brought my lemon for my water on a PAPER TOWEL. He then disappeared AGAIN and was MIA for a little bit. Finally got our food , it was good but nothing to rave about. He never checked on us and the only time he was actually attentive was when we were swiping our card .

Overall, very bad experience. Initially we did not have a reservation and we walked in and put our name on the waiting list (even though the restaurant had 15+ empty tables) and we were told the waiting time was 45 minutes to 1 hour. After waiting for about 30 minutes, we called the restaurant to see where we are in the waiting list and they told us we needed to wait at least 45 minutes more. At that time, we checked OpenTable and found a table immediately, so we reserved it, walked back in and sat down (the restaurant still had 15+ empty tables). When we tried to explain to the staff the mess with the tables, they were very rude. The service was very poor (we had to ask multiple times before they brought something, they brought food before water, drinks and plates) but at least our server was polite. The staff looked overwhelmed. Some of the plates were dirty. The food and drinks were at best mediocre. We will not go back.

Yesterday was my birthday and my husband and I attempted to go to dinner at your Baltimore location. We had made a reservation and got there on time at 3:30. The dinning room was about 50% full and the bar almost empty. We were sat at a table in the dinning room. We waited 20 minutes without any server or employee coming to our table. Not even waters brought. We then got up and went to the bar to see if we could sit there to get some service. Manager saw us and we explained we’d been waiting but wouldn’t mind sitting at the bar if that was easier. She assured us we could go sit back down and she’d send someone right over. We then waited another 5 minutes with still no one in sight (not even the manager who spoke to us who was just standing by the bar). At that point, we got up and left, with no one even saying anything to us on the way out. There appeared to be only 2 servers, who I’m sure were busy. So the fact that the manager was just standing by watching and wasn’t helping out is unacceptable. The entire bar was empty but covered in dishes, as were many of the open tables. It was very disappointing to have to leave.

Was really hoping for a good experience based on other reviews, but unfortunately that just wasn't the case. I want to say this: the food was good. Well... the food we received was good as we only got two appetizers and decided it was time to go.

The waiter was the problem. We are always patient people, but after waiting 40 minutes just for drinks we decided enough is enough. Our waiter seemed as if he was having more fun hanging out outside and in the back just shooting the breeze while those around us received their food and drinks. After 40 minutes I let staff up front know that we wanted our checks and after that our waiter was informed and finally drinks were brought to our table... they were all wrong. One water and two incorrect mixed drinks and an incorrect beer. That was the final straw for me and I had the drinks sent back. After waiting another 15 minutes we finally got our check and we left absolutely disgusted with the experience. It was not busy and they were not understaffed. Just terrible service from one individual who was disinterested and couldn't have cared less about being their. Disrespectful to the restaurant and to the customers.

Unfortunately, staff can make or break the entire experience and in this case, the staff broke it. Major fail for something I was hoping would be great.

My wife and I go to lots of Japanese restaurants. This one had a large and varied menu of creative sushi rolls, nigiri sushi and sashimi. They also had an excellent selection of cooked items.

I ordered their signature ramin, "Ra"min, which was just average. The base was bland and the noodles just average in taste, quality and texture. Their sushi was above average in fish quality and texture.

The biggest issue was how long it took to receive the ramin. The sushi arrived promptly, but the ramin took a very long time to obtain. It would also have been nice if our server had worn his mask over his nose and mouth, which he never did. I'm not sure I'd go back before trying other Japanese restaurants on my next visit to Baltimore.

Dinner with 5 coworkers. Easy and quick seating. Sushi was not bad but nothing to rave about either. My coworkers enjoyed their time. Service was friendly but very slow. Nothing bad about the wait staff but I just assume they were short staffed and busy; even though the place was about half full the whole time we were there.

I ordered toro sashimi and it was terrible- so chewy & sinewy I couldn't even chew it enough to swallow it. I told our server and her response was "I don't eat raw fish, so it all tastes bad to me." She offered to bring something else instead which I declined, but the toro was still on our check at the end.
The other sushi dish I had (hamachi chili ponzu) was not very good either- extremely fishy tasting. The person I was with had ramen, which he said was fine.

We made a reservation for 6. We were seated quickly but after waiting 15min, a server still hadn’t come to get our drink orders or bring water. I had to ask the hostess to send over a server. Over the course of our meal our server was never in sight. We consistently had to flag him down to get his attention. He would be actively walking away while we were still trying to talk to him.

The food was great, the only saving grace. But the service was truly horrible, very inattentive and made the entire experience a little disappointing.

This is not a real sushi restaurant. This is a restaurant for people who *want* to like sushi, but don't like raw fish. It was very disappointing. Once the server saw us, she was very nice. But I had to ask the host to send us a server after waiting for 10 minutes unseen. The table was a little sticky. The drinks had very little alcohol in them but were very sugary. The menu is online only (please don't make that a trend - we need to put down our phones in restaurants and talk to our friends), and more than half of the sushi items had Krab in them or were cooked. Like I said, this is not a real sushi restaurant. We won't be back. I should also mention that this is the first time I've ever left a review for a restaurant. That's how disappointed I was with this place.

We arrived and took a table at the bar. Our waiter Ethan greeted us and took our drink and appetizer order. It took a little while to get our beverages but I’ll wait or eventually showed up with our drinks and took our meal orders. We waited for our food to arrive and when it came it was our appetizers and our meal all at the same time that was a little bit of a bummer because our meals at getting cold while we ate the appetizers. For my meal we ordered hibachi which was relatively pricey considering, but I ordered the shrimp and scallop hibachi meal. When the meal arrived the colossal shrimp were very chewy ; so much that I couldn’t even swallow them, so I alerted the manager. The manager came and said she would have the shrimp made again from the kitchen. When the shrimp arrived the second time they weren’t as chewy but were still were not cooked to perfection. Finishing my first glass of wine I ordered a second glass, and about 30 minutes later our waiter shows up, and asks if I received my wine yet I said no I have not received my wine, and I wasn’t sure if I want it. The waiter pressed a bit, and said he could get the wine. 25 minutes later still no wine so I decided I did not want wine and I would rather have the check. Overall, not the normal experience that I have when at Ra. Not sure what to make of this.

RA used to be very nice, but has really gone down hill since the last time I was there about two years ago. The main issue was the very evident wear and tear on the restaurant in general it felt very unloved and shabby. There were things in need of obvious repair and a good deep clean in the bathroom and around the restaurant. The state of the restaurant would keep me from returning personally, but the staff was prompt and friendly and the food was good so if you don’t care about aesthetics I would say go for it!
