One member of patty's food took over 15 minutes to arrive. Then the manager brought and didn't even explain or apologize.

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.

Great dinner, loved the RA’ckin shrimp, Gojira Roll, Viva Las Vegas Roll, Chili Shrimp Roll, and the Japanese Mules. Slow service but probably because there were a lot of prom dates at the restaurant.

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.

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.
