Delicious sushi! Great value with their happy hour specials. Came in for a late-night dining experience and was pleased to see the large amount of specials, drinks and food, that were included in Happy Hour. Would dine here again in a heartbeat!

This location does not compare to the Yorktown location. Staff took forever to acknowledge us for seating even though we had reservations. Inside looked very dull, and this is not what I'm used to as a frequent customer of RA. Our server was ok, the food was pretty good but once again did not hold a candle to the other location. I spoke very highly of RA to the others in my group prior to coming but I was proven wrong this time around. Needs some improvements.

The music was way too loud! This is the reason my wife and I stopped going here a few years ago. I can't understand the need to blast the music at 5 pm in the afternoon.

1. The waiter forgot our appetizer order.
2. Didn't even tell us about last call so we couldn't even order dessert cause they won't take our order at 11:45pm.
3. They didn't give us soy sauce, ginger or wasabi until we mentioned.
4. Food doesn't taste that good.

My fiance introduced me to sushi a few years ago. We go out for it every few months. I took him to RA Sushi for lunch when I used to work in Gold Coast. Last weekend we were downtown and decided to dine there. Different crowd on Saturday night than Wednesday afternoon. The food is great, fresh, creative and tasty. Although I no longer work in the neighborhood and we live far, far north in Chicago, I can see us returning.

The only complaint was that it was very cold in the place. The 2 doors kept opening and we were getting cold drafts from both sides of our table. Maybe during the cold months 1 door is enough.
