Everything was good from the bar service to table service . The only complaint I have is that the portions are not as big as I would like them to be for the price, nonetheless the food was amazing and I would definitely go back.

I feel this restaurant would lift itself into a higher end destination if they changed a few things. Prices are right food is tasty and unique. Interior is well designed. Get the staff out of T-shirts and jeans, turn off the televisions and replace the menus with new clean versions.

This is one of my family's go-to restaurants. Always good food and fun drinks. Plus, if you order before 7:00 p.m., there are a ton of half-price options. This time we were joined by friends so there were six people in our party. We ordered drinks and about 8 different sushi rolls, miso soup, edamame, chicken skewers & tempura shrimp. It was ALL fantastic and we had plenty for everyone. If I have one complaint (and its a small one) it was a little loud. Kinda hard to hear across the table. But all-in-all, we had a great meal and a great time. Plus it cost less than $100 per family with 20% tip.

We went there on Christmas day for Dinner. Food was good, but service was extremely slow. There seemed to be only two servers in the entire restaurant. The food order came out in reverse order. Sushi rolls first, then appetizers and soup came out last after the server was reminded that we were missing the order.

We ended up sitting at the bar since the restaurant was pretty empty. The bartender was great, food came out perfect and it should have been a 5 star night but it wasn’t.

There was a table of staff & friends sitting to the side of us clearly heavily drinking. One of the girls had a martini type drink in one hand, was vaping at the table and drinking sake all at the same time. Others were a bit loud, running in and out of the kitchen helping themselves to drinks and no one was putting anything on a ticket.

It was a super turn off, poorly managed- not sure that I would go back.

Bento box steak was fatty, hard to chew and not fully cut by chef. Only 2/5 tempura pieces was shrimp. One section of bento box just rice. Great service really poor quality of food used .

Seated right away which we thought was a good sign but little did we know things were going to go downhill. We waited awhile for our server, and when she finally came we ordered our wine, app, and sushi. The app came out immediately which was nice, followed by the sushi two minutes later. A little rushed but still fine. She came back saying they ran out of wine glasses and it would be a few more minutes. Who runs out of wine glasses?! So we paused our meal to wait for the wine. I’ve never had to pause in the middle of the meal before. We finally got our wine, sushi was great, service was lacking.

Went to Ra for a birthday dinner. Menu has plenty of options. Between us we had the Pork Gyoza, Spring Roles, Chicken Teriyaki, California Rolls, Philadelphia Rolls,Ahi Tuna Poke, Surf & Turf Roll, Scallop Dynamite Roll, and Cucumber Roll.

The Gyoza were really good, but the Spring Rolls were doughy. The sushi was all fresh and tasty. The Surf & Turf and Scallop Rolls were especially good. The Chicken Teriyaki was just average.

The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant, but very dark. We had to use the flashlight function on the cellphones a couple of times.

Service was good, but food didnt

A bit disappointed in our experience at RA. It took over 30min to receive our sushi order. Our server informed us that it was taking a while and brought over free edamame. However, we could see the sushi chefs from our table, they had been hardly working while we were waiting. It was pretty evident that our server forgot to put our order in.

Sushi was good. Udon noodles we ordered good but the chicken seemed like it has been previously been cooked and frozen and just tossed into the stir fry.

Went for a quiet night out and everything was good except for the service our waitress was completely inattentive and we had to keep asking other people to service us and they were not helpful either. Overall we were not pleased and this is a place we frequent often. Unsure if we will be returning..

As always the food was delicious. However the service was sub par. It took the server 10 minutes to touch our table and see if anyone had helped us. Which no one had. We ordered an app and finished that before the server asked if we wanted more food. Someone heard a joke by my friend that I wanted another Diet Pepsi and brought one to me when that isn’t at all the drink I had been drinking. It’s hard to want to drive an hour to grab delicious sushi when the service seems to get worse and worse each time I go.

They desperately need more staff, service is severely slow & waiters have multiple tables. The food was good that’s the only reason to go back but eat a light meal before you go, you won’t get your food or drinks for awhile.

Took the family out to dinner and service was super slow. Our waitress first brought out 3 drinks for the family of 4 until we had to ask for another. My husbands food came out about 20 minutes into dinner while our 3 year olds dinner of fried rice took over an hour (it was the side dish size). The waitress could not be found throughout dinner service. It then look 4 people to find her when we were requesting the bill. All in, service was 90 minutes for 3 sushi rolls and fried rice. Not worth the cost, time or money.

We were on a birthday celebration. It was a Monday and we had no difficulty in finding a table that we liked. One of my drinks arrived a little late when the meal was already finished. I was told that bar was busy, but there hardly anyone at the bar. Other than that, whole experience was very good. Most importantly, I love the food you serve.

This was a Wednesday evening, I though the service could be better. I am accustom to all rolls being brought out at once not in stages. Waitress addressed us as, " i will being serving your group;" it was my wife and I. I guess the little things set the tone of how I viewed the experience.
