My boyfriend and I went to RA for his birthday dinner. I’ve only ate sushi one other time prior to this, because I’m not really a seafood lover. However, the food here is GREAT! The pineapple cheese wontons and spicy chicken fried rice were great appetizers. I ordered the Chile shrimp roll and it was awesome. If you like dessert definitely try the coconut creme brûlée! 10/10 recommend this place to anyone!

This use to be the place to be. The service was pretty good and was average. It is very loud and very casual, do get dressed up.

It did not appear very busy. And it took about an hour to get 3 plates of sushi. They brought out my husbands rice out and I did not get the sushi almost an hour later. The waitress never came by to check on us or let us know what was the wait.

Like the new set up. Removal of the walls was a good thing. Good service and food. Valet service is gone though so parking will be tough at times.

Came here for a date, they were out of the mixers for the punch bowl drink, we got sat at a booth and they smelled like they got cleaned with a dirty wet cloth, food was great though. 8/10.

Yes I would. My boyfriend and I had a great experience. Even though it was busy and had a wait time. He was full but still wanted more sushi. He says everything was made with love even with the high demand of people. 15/10 would recommend. Can’t wait to go back :)

It was actually quite terrible. It took at least 30 minutes each time we ordered to receive the food. One order was only 2 pieces of nigiri. I remember it being way better years ago. Seems more like a night club now with a restaurant thrown in. That is all

I love RA Sushi. Always a treat for me and my man. I will say though that it is not recommended to go on a holiday or when its very busy. We still had to wait 30 minutes even after reserving with OpenTable and we ordered everything at once but it took an hour to get all the food and by then our first plates were already cold.

service was very slow. Hardly anyone there at lunch and server took forever because he said he was waiting on a large table in the back. Ordered sake. We wanted to drink it with our meal. We were almost finished eating so we called him over to ask where it was. He said he forgot to tell us, but they were out of the kind we ordered.... ugh!!!

I have been eating here for years and have always loved it. However, dinner the other night was quite off. Our waiter hardly paid attention to us and seemed very annoyed he had to be working that night. We ordered some menu items X2 and had to remind him constantly that we were missing some of our food items. The food was / is always great but the service was majorly lacking.

Waitress took a while to notice we had arrived but other than that the food was great. Had window seating which at this time of year is pretty neat because you get to see the Christmas lights from up high.

The sushi quality and portions have gone down through the years. The hostesses are passing the time away with no apparent desire to be there, which reflects the overall decline in this once hot spot. Danny, our server, however, was wonderful!
