There are better Sushi restaurants available, I expected a bit more. Service was not the best, food was ok.

The appetizers, martini, food, and dessert was excellent. Our waitress was super nice. The only thing that I will say is that the music was a little bit loud for our taste. We will definitely come back and will recommend this restaurant.

It was not a good experience. When we got to RA they did not have a record of my Open Table reservation. Because of this, we got stuck sitting in the bar area at a high top table even though I had reserved a regular table. Then the bar area was loud. Finally, the bathrooms were gross and not cleaned well.

Ra is always good. I took some coworkers for dinner and the food was great as always. The open design and loud music make it difficult to have a conversation beyond a sentence fo two. But the service and food are always great. You won’t go wrong. Try the Viva Las Vegas role. It’s OUTSTANDING!

The service was awful. Our waitress came and took our drink order pretty quickly. Then, we didn’t see her for about 20 minutes when she brought our bottle of wine. We ordered appetizers (gyoza, toro nigiri, and yellowtail chili ponzu?) then we didn’t see her for another 20-30 minutes, which is how long it took for the appetizers to come out. We ordered 3 rolls...waited another 20-30 minutes.

While the food tasted good...not great...the service was so bad. There are much better quality and better service sushi restaurants in Houston to spend time and money at RA.

Sushi and nigiri was good-sta dard sushi fare. Garlic edamame was fantastic! That being said, it took a long time for it to arrive at our table.

We had to wait awhile for waiter to initially come by and get drink orders, but afterwards was attentive and pleasant.

Biggest drawback was the level of lighting. It was dark. I had to hold the menu so close to my face my nose was almost touching it.

Overall, a nice evening out with friends and good food.

My food came out before my drink. The floors are so slippery it is a hazard. I wouldn’t want to go back just because it’s uncomfortable walking through there.

It was one of the family members' birtday celebraton dinner. The food was very ordinary - nothing really special. It was extremely hard to talk as the music and especially drum sound were too loud. Service was ok. Not sure if i'll come back.

The music is always too loud at RA. Very difficult to have conversations. Our service was not excellent. One person in our group ordered a salad which arrived 15 minutes after the rest of the food. I do like the food so I do come back - just not very often!

We were suppose to have a surprise birthday here for 16 ppl on a Friday evening but due to unpredictable Houston weather we had to cancel. The birthday girl ended up changing the dinner plans to lunch plans for two. The staff was very accommodating to our change. Once we were sat our table, it took a while for our server to greet us and get drinks, but after that little wait, the service was fantastic! The food was flavorful and well cooked.

Showed up five minutes before reservation time, they said it might be 45 minutes. Finally seated at a crammed in table 15 minutes after reservation time. Time from when food was ordered to delivery at table was about 35 minutes. If you’re full to bursting, stop taking reservations perhaps?

Food was late coming out. Never been to a sushi restaurant where you have to request wasabi with that sushi and was told they just don’t like to waste it. My friend at the table ordered 2 sushi rolls and they come out 30 minutes apart after dinner and it was the wrong roll.
