Came to dinner on a Saturday night with my teenagers and mom to celebrate making it through the first week of school and my mom moving into her new home. This was the perfect spot! Once it got dark they turned the lights down and music up a little, but we were still able to talk. The food... the food... wow! We have had some good sushi from all over and RA is right up there with the best! Our waitress was amazing and super friendly, she recommended the Spicy Scallop and I am so glad she did. It was the perfect roll to end the night. For the four of to to eat and have a couple alcoholic drinks it don’t completely break the bank. It was worth it! Highly recommend and we will definitely be going back!

While food was good, the service was horrible. We were there on a Wednesday night, so all we could guess was that the "D" shift was on and the "A" was being saved for the weekend. Shannon was our waitress and it took her 15 minutes to get a beer that we ordered (I eventually asked a different waitress to please get our drink for us). Took 30 minutes for our sushi to show up, and even then she forgot a roll. When we reminded her, it took another 15 minutes for the roll to come out. Shannon said the chefs were busy and that was the delay in the last roll, but we saw the chefs standing around chatting with each other behind the sushi bar (the restaurant was not busy at all). Had to ask for wasabi 3 times before she eventually brought it for us. And she was never on the floor to find to signal to come over to our table (we saw other wait-staff on the floor, but not our waitress). Our dishes pilled up, but that didn't seem to mean anything to her. We finally stacked all the dishes and empty beer bottles at the end of the table. Even then she started to walk away without taking them - we had to stop her and asked her to take them away. We made the reservations with a specific note that it was for a birthday - no special b-day dessert was brought out nor a "Happy Birthday" from the waitress.
Absolutely horrible service!

We had a nice time there and the food was great, however the service we received was not so great, the hostess seem upset we took our time to order and we had to ask more then once for things and she disappeared for about 45 mins before she came to ask if we were ok.

It was too loud to speak, apparently not a first dinner date local.
Dragon Roll was totally unimpressive

Ra sushi at Dana park is one of my favorite places to meet occasionally with my friends on Happy Hour. However, this time we decided to celebrate Mother’s Day at this place. All I can say is that, everybody was very happy with the choice(food, noise level, and service), we definitely enjoy the time spent in this location.

The veggie sushi options were poor. The veggie maki I got was not rolled well at all. Then ambience was great. We made a reservation for 6 and were seated in a nice corner table. It was a great place to get together with friends. I was very disappointed in the vegetarian options.

Our server was very good! So friendly and fast. They had just updated the menu so my favorite roll was no longer available (Lucky Hearts) however we found a new fave (Smokey Salmon), so it was all good. The music was a bit loud but I think it would be a fun spot for a younger crowd. Especially in the evening. The bartender was a sweet young lady with great tattoos that gladly and promptly accommodated our request to change the channel to an NHL playoff game. Super sweet staff!

Manager was very rude. I respect a busy night but to busy wanting stand group talk with themselves versus attending customers or accommodating their needs. I will not return.

Had the Chicken Teriyaki, wish I hadn’t. It was a dry, over cooked & tasteless chicken breast with mushy broccoli covered in Teriyaki sauce. The only good thing about was the excellent service from our waitress, Madeline.

Used opentable to book a large party. They called 3 times to confirm. Then when we arrived, restaurant was 1/3 full. Table wasn’t even ready after those 3 phone calls to confirm and then the tables rocked spilling soy sauce everywhere and we had to fix. Not sure the reason for confirmations. Service was adequate. Waited a long time to order food. Then it got better.

I've been here before and had exceptional service and food. Not this time. Chicken that was under cooked and the kitchen backed up. The meal came out as it was prepared. It didn't matter if it was an appetizer or a simple bowl of rice. Waitress argued with me about a specific beer I always get there. Saying, "we don't serve that beer here"!

First time here. Very reasonable prices during happy hour and the food was very good. We sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful meal with great weather. Our server was just ok we had to ask for individual plates. Seemed a bit strange to ask for something so basic.

Nigiri was quite nice, albeit the two small pieces were not as good a lunchtime value as I would find at, say, Japonessa in Seattle. All members of the party enjoyed their food very much, particularly the calamari.

Our server, Charlie, was so sweet and friendly. He was swamped but never forgot about us. The food was served promptly and was all delicious. We got to sit by the sushi area watching them make all the dishes. It was entertaining.

I did say it was my husband's birthday and when we arrived both hostesses said, "Happy Birthday". But I was hoping for a small dessert to celebrate with, but none was served.

I visited this restaurant for my birthday and the entire dinner that night was absolutely fantastic. The food was amazing, the staff was delightful, and even for a little of a later night everything turned out perfect. RA sushi made me feel so welcome and I just can't get enough of their food!

I understand having to cancel reservation (I was 30 minutes late due to Traffic and Weather) not able to call while driving in rain.

But empty tables when arrived and not filled for party of 2 should have kept table instead of quoting 45 minutes or Bar or Sushi Counter.

Major disappointment for restaurant we come to at least 1x per month

The location is great and staff is friendly. The food is overpriced and bland, though the shrimp tacos are delicious. It’s unfortunate 2 different parties can’t use two different coupons just because they’re sitting together. Makes going out a drag. The waitress had to be reminded to refill our drinks and it took her a long time to check in on us. We send back the ramen noodle dish because it tasted like the 25 cent ramen noodle from grocery store.

It was a birthday dinner for my girlfriend. We had 11 people. The seating was fine. The initial server was great. But then we ordered. Nothing came out in any kind of timing and we were all eating at different times which left some people uncomfortable eating while others didn’t have their food so theirs got cold. Finally the last two people to eat had to wait at least an additional 20 minutes more.
The over all food quality was very good but we were disappointed with the service.

We enjoyed a late lunch at the bar and though it was unusually busy, the crew took great care of us including the bartender who was flying solo the first time that day. Great appetizer plates and food overall.
