    The waitress didn't show up until our meal was over. Luckily, the hostess was gracious and was able to take our drink and appetizer orders, then our entree orders. The last 3 times I've been to RA, I ended up with tummy issues within an hour. I eat sushi once a week from a different restaurant, so I know my body can tolerate sushi; it just doesn't like RA's sushi for some reason. The food quality and service seem to be subpar to me, especially for the high prices we pay.

    My boyfriend and I don’t go out much but decided to have a date night. We love sushi so we thought a more upscale sushi restaurant would be good for a date night. It took us 20 minutes to get our first drink. The waiter barely checked on us after we received our food. I had to go to the bar to get another drink, I asked for soy sauce and he never came back. My boyfriend had to go find him and he came back with soy sauce packets like you get with take out. The food was amazing but I have never had such poor service before. It’s like we were being ignored. I will not be returning.

    Place really needs to be cleaned. Trash on floor from front door and all over bar and dinning. Trash over flowing in the restrooms. If this had been my first visit here I would not go back. Please get it cleaned up. Also table too small for 4 to share food. Server had too much to do and do to that service was not what it should have been.

    We went here for a quick happy hour before a movie. It was so fast. We ordered drinks and happy hour bites and were out of there in 30 minutes. The online reservations were a breeze and we had no wait time when we arrived. Overall a wonderful experience!

    Worst experience we’ve ever had there. Waited 15+ minutes before anyone came to the (sticky) table, got a broken water glass, had to get up twice to ask for menus and napkins, ordered a quick appetizer (that came after our food), sushi was just OK, got a salad that was missing part of its ingredients, was basically a pile of iceberg lettuce topped with a dry chicken breast and dressing that literally tasted like dish soap (like, maybe there was still soap in the bowl), asked to order something else that took 20+ minutes to receive….with no apologies. We would’ve had more drinks but hardly ever saw our server. I know everyone is short staffed (and I worked in restaurants for years), so we tried to give them some grace but it was awful—the service, the food, the dirty table, the whole experience. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

    First and foremost our waitress was wonderful, polite and attentive. Sushi was average good, not outstanding. Decor - we enjoyed the color scheme and openness. The pictures on the walls were just weird. Women with sheets covering their midsections and the girl under the tree with again a sheet covering her mid-section. It felt like we were in a brothel or massage parlor, instead of a restaurant. Lastly and most important, the food took forever to arrive at our table. The explanation was they had so many "take-out" orders to fill it was putting the "dine-in" orders down the line. We find this SOOOO RUDE to make the people physically in your establishment wait. They didn't offer anything while we waited, nothing complimentary. I understand making money, but the people who supporting your actual building and wait staff are put on the back burner, this is poor customer service. We won't be back, there are too many other places we can go for less money.

    Great food but the place needs a deep cleaning. Dirty dishes, dust all over; no TP in ladies room dirty toilets and more. The service sucks. They’re trying but the girl argued with me about my drink being wrong. She didn’t look old enough to even drink. Kept forgetting food and I got slammed I the back with a chair a bus boy was carrying above my head while eating! Too bad because the food is good. I forgot to mention I asked for no fish options and received to rolls with huge fried shrimp on them.

    This was my second time this week at RA Sushi; I took a different group of friends this time and they loved it too! Sitting in the bar area at the high-tops is my go-to spot here. Matt took great care of us - thank you, Matt! RA Sushi has phenomenal service - while other restaurants a short-staffed after covid and struggle, you will see none of that here. Get the viva Las Vegas roll!

    Their operations were a little poor given the reputation of this fine dining establishment. We were “triple sat” in our waiter’s section. He was rather overwhelm, which was not his fault but something we would have not expected - especially since we had a reservation.

    First time here for my wife's birthday. Took well over an hour to get our food. My wife's food came about 20 minutes before mine. When mine came, it came at 3 different times. I guess there was a new chef in the kitchen. The server did try to help by discounting the food price.

    Our sushi was great however when I got my yakisoba, it was swimming in sauce which soaked into the noodles. I felt like I was eating salt. When I would try to get noodles, it would splash which left specks of brown sauce on my white shirt. Eventually I had to put my napkin into my collar like I was 3 years old. The dessert was wonderful. I do recommend the Tempura Gelato.

    I have been to RA Sushi before, and it wouldn't usually receive a 2 star review, but on Saturday night at 6:30P had a 2 star experience that I felt necessary to share. We arrived for our reservation and were seated without a word from the host, which was not very welcoming, but not terrible by itself. The waitress (who we have zero complaints about, throughout the experience she was the one lovely part), took our drink orders and warned us that the chef did not show up so management was working the kitchen which meant food would take extra time to come out. We ordered our entrees and about 5 minutes later the waitress returned to tell us that she hadn't realized but they closed the kitchen for entrees about 15 minutes prior (so before we had even been seated) because the chef didn't show up. She offered that they were still serving limited appetizers and sushi, just no entrees and a few other items which she could tell us if we asked. She gave us time to think about what we wanted to do; we ultimately asked for the check and left. The reason I leave this 2 star review is because even if one or two kitchen staff do not show up, for a restaurant this size and popularity it is hard to understand how that brings food service to a screeching halt, particularly on a busy night like a Saturday at dinner rush. Talking with my friend as we left, we wondered why we weren't warned by the host when we arrived so we could have saved ourselves time and money from the drinks we had ordered. Either he knew and should have been instructed to tell everyone coming in but didn't, or he didn't know. Either way it's management's fault. Overall it was a bad experience for us and we concluded that if we ever go back we'll have call in advance and make sure the chef showed up and they are serving food before we go--which should be a foregone conclusion when you go to a restaurant.

    They over charged me for food did not receive. Did not bring out all my food that I ordered. No check in to determine if we needed anything. We had to wait for plates, chopsticks, etc when there was only 2 on the two for six people. They don’t show you the bill since they have these handheld systems that take the payment and I had to ask for receipt 3 times and didn’t get it until I went to the manager.

    We were there for my wife’s graduation dinner. We had a party of 7. We ordered sushi and hibachi. After waiting an hour and 15 minutes. Our food never came out. The waiter Semaj was great, but the fact that we weren’t actually able to eat after waiting 1.5 hours sucked.. we’ve never had a bad experience here, we’ve tried this one, and a few locations in Texas.
