We went for a birthday lunch for my boss.
I was delighted in the fresh quality of the food
I was disappointed in the lengthy wait to get our sushi and the lack of attention of our server- she just didn’t seem very enthusiastic about what she was doing. An off day??

Specifically
She didn’t make sure that we all had place settings
4 of us ordered sushi, she brought 1 dish of wasabi /ginger for all of us to share and didn’t check to make sure it was enough
She didn’t check to see if the soy sauce pot was full

For my first time there, I was disappointed.,I had heard such positive things about the quality. If that’s the level of service most times - I’ll either order to go or go to another venue.

Thanks for considering my feedback

I’ve celebrate my birthday there 3 years in a row and have always come there with friends. I most likely will not go there again. I was disappointed with the service and attitude of the front reception and manager and treatment. My birthday dinner was for 11 however as usually no one comes right on time. 6 people were there by 745 and reservation was at 730. We were told we can’t be seated until everyone’s there which is crazy. Then we were seated on a high top for 8 which was fine but the attitude of the employees was very unwelcoming and especially manager. Understandably if a place is busy there isn’t much they can do however, they were no very busy there were a lot of open tables and that should have been the attitude for someone who is a regular customer and coming there for years to celebrate a birthday. Very disappointing and those are the kind of reasons places start losing customers. The server was ok she did her job as expected. Overall unhappy and disappointed that a place That was our go to spot Will no longer be an option.

Terrible service. I made reservations for my fiances birthday. The food was good, don't get me wrong. However, the service was absolutely awful. It was embarrassing for me to have taken my fiance there. Our table waited over 30 minutes for our food. Then, our waitress would bring out our food in bits and pieces. One person would get their food, then 20 minutes later, the other person would get their food. It was so slow and bad that we had to ask the waitress several times about the other food we'd ordered and still hadn't received. One of my friends, who ordered two rolls, never got his second roll. An hour into our dinner, he finally asked her about it, and all she told him was that she saw the ticket, but she guessed it hadn't been made yet and if we just wanted to cancel the order for that roll (which we did). We were very polite to her and tipped her even though we were frustrated. I don't know if it was her fault or the kitchen's fault, but it's frustrating to have food come out at different times and some food not come out at all, all while watching other tables get served before us when they came after us. Some of the food was good, but overall, I would not recommend this place to anyone. I might get in contact with management about it to be honest.

The hostess was not friendly at all. She didn’t greet us. I said, “hi, I have a reservation under my name”. She just proceeded to walk to the table and didn’t even engage with us. She is the first appearance of the restaurant and she was horrible.
The server was great! He took care of us very well!

The reservation process is great!

Service was lacking. Food took a long time to come out, even the appetizer. We noticed our drinks sitting at the bar after placing the order 10 min earlier. Asked the waiter if our drinks were coming and he said the bartender was out getting more ginger beer. Came back a minute later with the watered down drinks. Plates were dirty too. Food was decent but not worth the price. Patio was nice and breezy.

RA is still a decent choice for Sushi, especially in City Center where options are limited. However, I felt like food had decreased a bit in quality which was very disappointing. The server we had was very nice and personable but at some point in our dinner we had been requested to be part of a but of challenges to help the server. They asked for Yelp reviews, fill out an email chain request, and purchase gift cards to help them win a game, this was prior to us even getting our food so we were a bit taken back. I filled out a Yelp review and the email letter to help the server, but i would suggest doing that after delivering a perfect experience next time. All in All, it was a good experience, just a few awkward moments.

Every time we go, the service is terrible. I don’t know if it’s b/c we like to sit outside, but our last visit was on a late Sat afternoon and they weren’t busy, and it was prob the worst visit to date. It took forever to get our drinks, forever to get our edamame, and then (yep, you guessed it) forever to get one sushi roll and one order of sashimi. It was beyond ridic for this small order (which was half raw fish!). Then, the kicker, the waitress doesn’t even bring wasabi w them, she asks me if I want some (YES!) and then HAS TO GO GET IT. So I wait... after waiting already... for her return. Just bring it w the rolls, like every other place does! The food is great, but not worth dealing w this.

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.
