The waiter was kind ans the foos was good. However, we waited 40 minutes for our sushi. There were two parties that came in after me and got their food first and left before we did. I also observed at least 6 dirty tables upon walking out. I love RA Sushi and this location but I think I went on a very off day. Hopefully my next experience will be different.

Food is fantastic but service needs work. Our waitress was polite but slow and forgot food we ordered. It took her over 20 mins to close our tab when we were done. It was not busy by any means either. If you arent in a hurry, RA is a good place to eat good food and hang out.

The food was excellent. But the service from the hostess and waitress was lackluster. We at first did not have a reservation so we understood there may be a wait. The hostess said 5 mins so I said we would wait by the bar. About 15 mins went by and 2 couples were seated in front of us, ok no problem they probably had reservations. I proceeded to go to my OpenTable account and made a reservation for 8 pm. It was already 7:50. I told the hostess what I did in hopes of somewhat reminding her we were waiting as there were 4-5 open tables in the dining room at that point and a few in the bar area. At 8:10 I approached the hostess stand and asked if we can sit at one of the tables in the bar area, she said go ahead. No menus, no escort, no plates or napkin with chopsticks, we just sat ourselves. Not 2 minutes later the hostess sat someone next to us and gives them everything aforementioned. A (what I assumed to be) manager proceeded to walk over to our table and put down a single napkin with a fork and knife that I'm assuming was for someone else. Next to us was the cart with plates and everything so I just grabbed them for ourselves while my fiancé approached a waitress to get us menus. Everything from there was OK. Our waitress must have known the people next to us cause she sat in their booth and talked with them often but compared to what we went through up to that point, whatever. I wouldn't go back to this location. The food was excellent but the management was obviously lacking to the point where the staff was inattentive and knew that they can get away with it so why not. The Glenview location is just as far so I might as well just go there from now on. Oh and if you do go, get yourself the "Hot Mess" sharable, it is phenomenal.

We had an amazing experience. We took our 10 and 8 ye old daughters and they absolutely loved it. They tried everything and actually enjoyed it. The manager and our server went above and beyond for us while we were celebrating my husbands birthday! We will definitely be coming back. All due to the amazing experience we received on 3/30/18!!!

The server was unwilling to make gf accommodations for me (I have celiac disease). She said she didn’t know what gf was and when asked her manager came back with saying I could get a salad and that she didn’t know if rice was gf...therefore my husband and I left.

Overall the I have to say that I was not that impressed by the food. We had some yellow tail and and it was quite fishy. The smoke salmon and tempura roll was the best part of the meal. The servers were very nice but I don't believe I'll return for the food.

We arrived early and checked in. The host was able to seat my friend in the bar area while I was using the restroom. This was a mistake, we did not get service until we asked someone. We put our order in and waited over a half hour. We had to ask where our food was and the waitress had to retake our order. One roll came out and it awful. It was not fresh. We had to ask about our second roll before it came out as well. No apologies were given or compensation. I will not be back to this restaurant.

Great having a wide variety of potions to choose from. Really appreciated the server explaining everything, including the fact that things will arrive at the table as they are prepared.....this worked out really well. Not much room between tables so you should not expect privacy. Overall a nice experience.

The table was tiny and it was butt up against a pillar. We were in a high traffic area I felt at times we were in the way of servers coming out of the kitchen. I thought making reservations a few days in advance I would have gotten a better table

I used to love going to this place but over the years I feel like the service has declined. The fact that my group and 2 other groups waited more than 5 minutes at the front with no host or any other staff in sight to welcome us or take our names/party size was shocking! That’s should be done almost instantly before you have even taken more than a few steps into any restaurant! One of the sushi chefs had to come around just to greet us but then said someone will be right with us. Then as we’re seated at the table every request we made, drinks, napkins, straws took unusually long to be fulfilled. They’re lucky the food still is amazing but there are many other places I could choose with great food AND great service.

Never impressed here. Ever. I’ve been here several handfuls of times all times of days and nights and never seem to get good service. As usual, way too long to even be approached at our table by our server, even longer to get our drinks. Really kills the mood at the table. Food presentation was also off tonight. Usually the presentation is pretty good but tonight was well below average. I always feel like my money and time are wasted here and would much rather frequent ANY other sushi restaurant in the area as service and presentation elsewhere never suffer. Why is this RA? For your prices and ambiance you can do better!

Great place for sushi. Don’t order other main dishes. We had two different chicken dishes, both of them had over cooked chicken (dry to the bone). I would have sent it back, but it took forever to cook. Had to ask the server what was taking so long, she said it would be right up, but it wasen’t . When she came by to ask how it was, I told her the chicken was over cooked and dry. She said nothing and left. All our sushi dishes were great, lesson learned.
