RA Lombard is always reliable. The food is usually high quality. I’ve had better Japanese food at other restaurants but their prices were ridiculously high. I think the pricing at RA is extremely reasonable especially their lunch menu. I’ve probably eaten here about 30 times and the food is consistently good. Over the years their happy hour menu has changed they use to have more interesting items. At this visit their drinks menu was very limited they had no hot saki and no Japanese beer on draft but I understand in these COVID-19 times they’re trying to keep their overhead down.

Sigh. I love the food there, but their setup for outdoor dining was severely lacking. I was seated over a pile of garbage that had blown into the corner of the patio. They did not have enough personnel to clean it up, or even to take our order. We finally opted for carryout. They told us to wait in our car & they would call us. They never did. After about 40 minutes we went in & our order was just sitting. We were charged for the filet skewers we ordered, but they turned out to be chicken. Hope they get it together!

I never give bad reviews but tonight was note worthy. From the time we got there until we left it was not a good experience. We got there and we were maid to wait by the host. Then after a few minutes we were told we would be seated but in order clear the entry we would be seated near the bar temporarily. After we were seated we waited for a while and then the bar tender came and took our drink order. We got our drink as it was not good at all.. So much alcohol to the point where we had to ask for additional juice to kill the taste (we didn't finish the large punch bowl drink). Then we had to track down the bartender to take our order. In his defense he was very busy. He was very polite but busy. We did notice other couples come in and get seated Ave taken care of sooner. The food was really really good but the service was not good at all. I've been there before and the service was fine.. This time it was really bad, I won't be going back for a while. It just didn't feel right, there where no other black patrons there and we felt isolated.

I had lunch with my niece her boyfriend my great nephews and her boyfriend's daughter a draw Sushi and Lombard on Tuesday, we ordered food and drinks and we were just very merry for the whole day. The food was fantastic, the temperature was delicious, the wings were delicious the sushi was top-notch as usual. Our server, Adam, was fantastic. He was very funny, very accommodating and very good. We're planning another trip back and bringing more family with us

Food was good but the kitchen was slow. We ordered apps, sushi and desert. One app came out initially and the rest came out with our meal. We received all our sushi at the same time - which is expected. However, then we ordered two different deserts one came out after a long while (moshi trio) and the second desert never came so we decided to leave after waiting for it for about 20 minutes.

We tried to call and make a reservation and they said they had nothing available until 9pm. After we hung up, we looked on OpenTable and they had almost every time slot still available. When we arrived, not only were they taking walk-ins, but they had almost every table open. Throughout the hour we were there, most tables remained open. I’m sincerely bagged about why we were told on the phone that they are too busy for a party of 2. The server was efficient but very unfriendly. Food was good, but it’s getting harder to justify driving so far for some sushi roll.

The food there was good but the service was pathetic. We first got there and the hostess told us we needed a reservation to be seated, when the restaurant was clearly empty. She proceeded to tell us that the earliest reservation was for 5 hours later from that point. We walked out of the restaurant, got on the open table app, made a reservation for 10 minutes after that point in time, walked back in, and walked to be seated.

Once we were seated Outside, as requested, our waitress came up to us talking loudly and rudely. To make a long story short, she brought us more food items than we ordered, we argued about how we didn’t order that food, we ended up keeping the food because she wouldn’t take it back, didn’t eat it all, and at the end she never took it off of our check.

Needless to say, her tip paid for the extra items on our check...

Pathetic service!!

Made reservations at 7:15 and Put in special request to sit outside and was told that their system doesn’t recognize it and the option was to wait 45 min for outside table. We opted to sit inside. As far as the dining experience, for some reason everyone (4) got their order but one had to wait 12 minutes for shrimp tempura sushi roll. The people on the next table ordered after us and got their order first (same server). Kinda disappointed.

Had a reservation @ 730. Tables open at 715 but had to wait for 730 for the same table. No explanation of the scan card that was laid down for the menu to appear on the IPhone. Bartender/ server spent time at her table with a group she knew. Service could have been better all the way around. Average at best, not worth the cost.

Stopped by for a late lunch but experience was extremely disappointing.

Upon arrival, first issue was seating. As the restaurant was not serving at outdoor tables because the weather was threatening rain and we did not want to sit at a table in the crowded main restaurant area, we asked to be seated in the bar area. However, the completely untrained hostess could not decide if this was OK and needed to get permission from multiple persons to do so. This took several minutes
.
Finally, after being seated at a high-top table in the bar area, we encountered the waitress . She did not bring any water, plates or silverware but simply took our order. Once the food arrived, it was served without the customary pickled ginger and wasabi. As the waitress disappeared after serving the food, we did without the ginger and wasabi. Upon completion of the meal, we could not find the waitress in order to get our check. We therefore asked the two hostesses to call the waitress for us. However, they could not be bothered and declined to do so. They stated that we should wait, the waitress will be coming ! Eventually, after a long wait, she did appear and we settled the bill.

Besides the atrocious service, the other amazing issue was the menu prices. Being a regular customer for many years, we were astonished to notice that all prices have been suddenly increased by 100 -200 percent. As an example, a favorite menu item of a sashimi plate consisting of 12 assorted sashimi pieces served with a salad and miso soup that was priced at $ 12 is now carrying a price of $23.50 but without the salad and soup. Once you add the extra price for the soup and salad, the new price would about $30 for the sashimi total which is a 250 percent increase from the previous price.

In summary, the bad service and poor value for money make Ra Sushi no longer the restaurant at which we enjoyed many wonderful meals in the past.

Food has been better. The rolls were kind of "sloppy" - not tight.

One of my guests had the poki bowl and said it was awesome.

The service was mediocre at best.
