We made a reservation for the patio and when we arrived we were told it was first come first serve. Seems like if they knew we were coming, they could have waited to seat a table there. We were then seated inside next to very noisy tables right next to the bathroom where is smelled like bleach. I remember this restaurant being a nice up scale place and it felt like I was at an Applebee’s. We left before we even ordered.

Not the same RA I remember. Service was horrible. Won’t be going back. Many other sushi restaurants worthy to visit.

All of the food we ordered was outstanding. The service was very attentive, but not extremely personable. The plates that were originally provided had dried food on them. They were promptly replaced, but the restaurant as a whole seemed a little dirty. The table top felt greasy. If the restaurant was given a big cleaning and the service a tad bit more friendly, I would have given 5 stars. Again, the food is amazing! One other note - they don't offer a kids menu, but they can make chicken nuggets. Would be nice if they had 3 or 4 kid options as we ordered an $18 entree (teriyaki chicken) for our kiddo.

Extremely loud and could barely hear others while talking, the restaurant ran out of clean forks, so they provided us with plastic ware. The women’s bathroom was disgusting. I rarely write reviews, but I was very disappointed in our visit last night.

Gave this place a 3rd chance and it failed on all counts just like the other two visits. Waitress was MIA during the entire time of visit (we had the same waitress the last two visits). It took her on average to greet us, bring drinks/food and check over 20 mins. EACH TIME. We almost left because and wished we did. On both visits, we had to go get our own water from the pitchers sitting at the end of the wait station. Two other tables had to get their own water as well. When we walked in each time, it was not that busy due to it being around 4pm on a Sunday - there were dirty tables all around us (8 tables) and they were never cleaned off during our visits. There were enough wait staff hanging out at the wait station at the end of the sushi bar and the manager was just hanging out with them as well. No one bothered to clean off tables. When we and other patrons left, there was a total of 12 dirty tables not being tended to in our area. I WISH I had my cell phone to take pictures to post but forgot it at home. We decided this was our last visit to this place. Who needs all that frustration with poor service and filthy tables all around when there are so many other places to enjoy who actually care about their restaurant and the people they serve.

Beyond disappointed. Went for a special night for daughters birthday and instead couldn’t get out fast enough. For starters. The place is loud! I don’t mean loud as in volume of people, but music was ridiculous. Could barely hear the person seated next to you. Our waitress could not even hear us order which resulted in several wrong orders and being charged incorrectly as well. She was also poorly trained. Felt badly for the gal as she was very friendly but couldn’t recall the name of the wines on the happy hour menu, the difference between a few different dishes. Getting drinks took forever and then when they arrived had to wait another 10 minutes just to get a glass! Food was good but came out in stages with several of our appetizers coming out after the entrees. All and all turned what should have been a lovely birthday dinner into one we couldn’t leave fast enough. Safe to say we had so many things go wrong it doesn’t warrant a second visit.

food was excelllent. but restaurant was very noisy. Way too loud. A good place for 20s on a saturday night but not a quiet relaxed atmosphere. Definitely not an a place for an intimate date. I would get their food as take out and enjoy intimacy elsewhere. Again food was very good. Fish was very fresh and a good selection.

A great opportunity to enjoy a variety of sake and sushi offerings - I am very happy with my experience. Began with a flavorful Miso soup, followed by the delicious sushi combination, and finished with a Mochi trio for dessert. Thank you!

Waiter was so rude and gave us dirty dishes to eat with. Didn’t bring us napkins and when we asked politely she was rude about it. Got one of the orders wrong. This is has been one of my favorite places in the past but this experience ruined it for me, I went here for my birthday and it was a horrible experience

Everything was great for the most part. Only issue was that the hostess took us to a unclean table and instead of being taken to another table, we had to wait(5 min) for the waitress to clean it off. Other than that the waitress was great and so was the food, definitely will be going back.

Reservation was for 7pm. First we were seated by the kitchen and we noticed reduced menu choices and favorites were gone. It took over 15 minutes to get our drinks. We had to eat our salads with plastic forks. The menu pricing still says "upscale", but the ambience has gone from upscale restaurant to nice bar.
My experience a couple of years ago was a quiet family meal, so when I was back in the area I took my granddaughter to RA for what I remembered as the best sushi in the area. Several sushi offering are now available that actually are a closer drive so I will I probably not be back for a quiet meal as I am not a bar hangout type. I thought you should know how people who enjoy a well-presented dining experience now see RA.

RA sushi is a nice place to enjoy some sushi. Unfortunately sometimes it can be extremely loud (to the point you can’t hear the person you are with) and the service can really suck. When my husband and I went we waited for a while for a server and then waited forever to order our food. Then when our food came out, one of my rolls came out before any of his food so it had to just sit there until he finally got his food about 10 minutes later. I normally get the viva Las Vegas roll and the tootsi maki roll. The viva Las Vegas roll was subpar and the maki roll was good!

Me and my family dined here for my daughters high school graduation. The staff was friendly and allowed us to come a little later to the reservation. The waitress was new but still gave us great service. The food was great and decorated well, but slightly high for what I was expecting. The room was a little dirty also. Trash on the floor and on the table next to us. Overall was a great experience.
