I made a reservation for 7pm but was not seated until 7:30, which was inconvenient. However, our server was very attentive and the food was delicious. My boyfriend and I shared the garlic edamame, crunchy shrimp tempura roll, spicy lobster roll, and the crunchy calamari roll. I ordered the blushing geisha drink and it was great. We love RA!

Extremely Slow service (3 hour dinner). Wait staff was extremely unorganized. Manager got involved on an issue with overcharging and was not resolved.

Usually like to get one roll at a time and order as the night goes on, the waitress didnt come back to our table for about 20 minutes after the first dish so I didn’t get the chance to order more food. The drinks were good and so were the rolls, but I was a bit disappointed I didn’t have the opportunity to order again. Maybe it was an off night for service

Service was terrible! My date and I had to ask for just about everything! We received our order without any utensils or chop sticks. Then we realized we didn't have, nor were we offered soy sauce. Then we realized we didn't have any wasabi or ginger; all which is usually complimentary and served with sushi. We literally had to flag down our waiter 3-4 times for complimentary items. It was embarrassing and I'll never bring another date again. I may not ever return, as I've lost confidence in this establishment all together. My date was visiting from Baton Rouge and was looking forward to an awesome experience. You guys let me down big time..

The Hot Mess & Las Vegas Roll were delicious. It did take a very long time to get food. Great place if you're not in a hurry.

Horrible experience!!! Horrible atmosphere with a bunch of trashy ghetto hood rats trying to entertain their trashy dates. Bad sushi, overpriced, and what type of elegant sushi restaurant has two large screen television playing the sports game on their overhead screens??? Worst sushi restaurant ever!!!!! Do not go here!!!

Literally the worst service I’ve ever gotten. I consider myself a generous tipper, always tip 18% minimum. First time in my life the service was soooo bad that I didn’t leave a tip.

Meet some friends there for dinner at 6pm and we sat in our usual spot by the window in the bar area. The AC was on full blast it seemee which made it colder and louder than normal. Our waitress was good but there were two large parties of people and that delayed our food. If someone had told us that we could have gauged better when ordering. Two appetizers came out and the others came out about 15 min later.

The server made it so much better. He explained items and made suggestions that were golden. The food was terrific! Even the dessert was amazing. I like the upbeat vibe inside. I love the stairs leading to the dinning room. It was our 12 year anniversary and we were sat by the window. The view was excellent with all the Xmas lights. Thanks for the perfect night.

Ps the sake was really really good.

The tables and chairs were not cleaned. I had to request for the table to be clean. It wouldn’t have been a big deal if they were busy, but we were the first people there. I was concerned that they were not taking proper precautions. Also, there were multiple tables not cleaned from the night before. Our server was great.

It was a nice dinner, though it would of been a little more romantic since I been there before and it’s being quite the place, but this time we were sat on people’s way, I guess I should of ask for a different table. Our food took soooooo long to come out, even though the place was not that busy. And even got our order wrong. I did like that our waitress surprise my date with a treat for his birthday.... we appreciated that. We will give it a second chance for a date night.

The food was good. The service was great. Our waiter was on it. The tables so close to each other with zero social distancing was not good. It’s probably no longer a rule in Texas anymore, but I shouldn’t be 12” away from the next table.

Love coming here, and never have an issue but this time our food was taking so long... my appetizer which supposed to be the first thing was brought until the end... cold. And when I asked to just cancel the order I was told no.

First visit, horrible service; after being seated we waited at least 45 minutes before seeking out service. The food was "o.k." it tasted like it was previously frozen. The music was extremely loud, drinks “o.k.”, cleanliness questionable.

Was super excited to have lunch at RA as I’ve been to a few of their California locations, but was very disappointed with my experience at their Houston Highland Village location!
I had made a reservation because I wasn’t sure if they’d be busy due to Covid and I didn’t feel like risking showing up and having to wait. I showed up ten minutes before my reservation time and even though the restaurant was almost completely empty, the hostess still made me wait until the time I had made my reservation. When we were finally seated, our waitress came over, asked what we wanted to drink then brought said drinks. By then we were ready to order, so we told her our orders. I had a few simple questions about menu items and when I asked them, our waitress gave very rude, short answers and made me feel like I was stupid for asking them in the first place. All I wanted to know was if I could sub a different sushi roll in the bento box because I have an avocado allergy. I even told her I’d be willing to pay extra for it! But she rudely said no, we can only take out the avocado. From a California roll. So basically she was gonna give me cream cheese, cucumber and rice. I told her okay I guess that’s my only option so she went and put in the order. Two minutes later I decided I didn’t want to pay for something I wasn’t going to enjoy and decided I preferred to change my order to something else. She was upset about this as well (which is understandable) but I didn’t think it was right for me to pay for something I didn’t really want!
Anyways, I ended up getting my food and it was mediocre at best. And our waitress didn’t bring napkins until we asked and were almost done with our food!
I don’t know if it’s because of Covid or what, but everything kinda sucked. I was extremely disappointed with the way I was treated at this restaurant!
I wouldn’t recommend eating here. At least not this location.
