I come here often but unfortunately this visit wasn’t the best. We were seated very quickly but everything went downhill from there. Servers changed without notice, things we asked for (napkins, straws, soy sauce) had to be requested 2-3x we eventually had to snag plates from other table’s settings but some were not clean (had brown or white residue) This was not during a busy time, actually there were only 3-4 other parties seated during our visit

The hostess was not helpful at all. The restaurant was understaffed so it took forever to get drinks and food, and our food all came out at separate times. Our server was good, but probably would not revisit.

Food is okay, receptionist, and ambiance is great.Not happy with our server. She seems on a hurry and not paying attention to her customers. I understand that she's busy but I hope in the future, she'll take time talking and taking orders right. She also took my plate while I'm still eating. I don't think we'll come back here again.

We went on Valentine’s Day, so we made a reservation the week or so before. No trouble getting in, and it was very busy when we were there. I wish the had more of a variety in sushi with more raw fish options, but the Mango Shrimp roll we shared was very yummy. Also, the Moscow Mule I had was the BEST mule I’ve ever drank. We will definitely go back!

Checked out the happy hour at RA before a movie. Definitely not a great happy hour place, prices are very high. 2 beers and 2 wines and some sushi, $70 dollars. Can’t see myself going back at those prices.

Made reservations 2 weeks ago for the booth that sits 10. Group increased to 15 and I even called the restaurant to give heads up notice. Lady at the restaurant said that I could request an additional side table. Pretty upset that when we arrived at 9:30 and not even the reserved booth was ready. We had to wait 25 minutes for our table to be ready even though we had requested this in advance. We had a reservation at another place for later in the evening (planned for after RA) and we were late to that and we didn’t get to spend a lot of time there because we had to wait for our table at RA. Poor efficiency. The booth should have at least been set up PRIOR to our arrival, and the extra table- which was an approved option, could have been set up in less than 10 minutes which is understandable.

I preface this with the food is amazing and I’ve had great experiences prior to this week. Also I will be back due to the prior statement. We got there on Sunday for their most of the day happy hour, sat quickly. Took about 15 minutes to get our order taken.. wasn’t a big deal since we were with friends and catching up. Then when we did order we ordered rolls, edamame, spring rolls, and goyza. We were told it would be 25 minutes for rolls, because they were busy. Roughly 50-60 minutes went by before we got apologized to for having to wait and the business blamed. Then we got our edamame, goyza and spring rolls within 3 minutes of this statement. Kind of odd with the timing, insides were lukewarm and outsides were hot. Not sure if that’s normal or forgotten under lamp. Then 5 minutes later the the sushi came out. Not the best showing since we only got our drinks refilled every 15-20 or so minutes, not sure if it was the kitchen or understaffed but wasn’t the greatest experience.

Our waitress rushed us in and out. She did not bring our appetizer and had to be reminded of it after she brought our entree. She then removed plate of food when we were not finished eating. For the money we spent it was a disappointing experience.

The service has been weak the last couple of times I’ve been to RA. I can’t put my finger on what the issue is...maybe just disorganization. The food prep has been sloppy too; just doesn’t seem freshly prepared. The bar service has been very slow.

Are waitress wasn’t good. We waited 45mins to an hour for basic sushi rolls. For the most part she talked to are friends. The rolls were over priced for it. I have had much better sushi and I can never see myself going back.

Had to ask a random worker if our table had a waitress because after nearly 10 minutes, no one had greeted us at our table. Once she finally did show up, she was very unapologetic about it.
The food was pretty good. The hibachi had no flavor, tasted like just some grilled meat and vegetables.

Ra is a solid sushi restaurant and it is clear they want a night club vibe. During lunch and dinner however, the noise level is quite difficult to have tableside conversations due to music. The food is good, and happy hour prices are solid, however outside of that the sushi is pretty pricey for the size of the fish pieces you receive.

Our server took a long time to greet us but then took even longer to bring us first round drinks. She left our drinks and disappeared for a bit and didn’t ask about an app so Food all came together. Food was good but service was awful. Bad teamwork as a whole.

The food was pretty good. I had the crazy monkey roll which was good but felt like it was missing something. I didn’t like that the salmon wasn’t cold cold. I like my sushi cold. The pork potstickers were delicious!!! I would recommend that and the ramen! The ambience was really nice, great for a date. Wish there was more outdoor seating. But other than that I would definitely go there again.
