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.
Cheers!

Ra sushi was really good. It’s always fresh. The restaraunt is a bit noisy for me. The music is loud and is hard to have a conversation in. We dined outside instead and it was great except when it started getting dark it was hard to see. The waitress was super nice but may have had too many tables it made it hard for her to make it back to our table quickly. Overall we love Ra.

I love RA! The sushi is creative, fresh & delicious. The salads are awesome!! Great starters. Lively & really good Happy Hour. The Happy Hour wine is delicious & great value. A little nousy with the bar scene, but fun as well! Service can be slow during busy times but excellent in general.

My service was excellent and the sushi was amazing. I especially enjoyed seeing the chefs at the sushi bar having a good time preparing. The atmosphere was quiet enough for a private conversation but also had areas for friends to gather.

Our service and food were fabulous. The only thing I did not like was the loud music playing through the speakers. It was kind of hard to have a conversation with my husband. Our server was amazing, the drinks were perfect, and I HIGHLY recommend the lobster spring rolls and the California Dream sushi rolls.

Odd, normally Ra restaurants have good food. Had miso soup, good. Ra'ckin shrimp, good. Vegas roll wasn't made well, mushy rice. Was really disappointed. Also asked for extra eel sauce, which the server forgot. No lemons brought with drink refill. Disappointing meal. Won't be back to this location.

I was very displeased with how the evening started.. I was not told at the time i reserved that i needed half our party there to be seated. So when i get there with my 4 children trying to surprise my husband i am told i cannot sit down until 5 more people show up. so surprised ruined my husband and his sisters show. 5 of us... but now we have to wait for 80% of the party which overall was us.. The girls in the front where very rude about it and didnt seem to care. Once we got seated our waitress was rude about how to go about the check. She forgot my children's drinks all the time and when asked for suggestions for my kids she had an attitude. I love RA sushi but this one was not a favorite to visit.. Manners are a must

food was just okay. if it was better, the pricing would be fair. we did enjoy the dessert and drinks. the service was great. the food sounds like it would be great based on menu descriptions. but sadly the main thing i would think anyone goes to a restaurant for is the very thing that brings the rating down. i've spent more and i've spent less on better product. to me it means that they could do better.

Great food. However, I really wish they would offer brown rice and fried rice. I understand this may not be the norm, but it seems logical.

Manager, Ashley was great. She took care of our open table account and for our points because our reservations were cancelled. She was also very sweet about the whole situation and called me back when the issue was resolved ;)
Will be coming back just because of her excellent customer service.

Our server was very sweet and friendly but sooooo scattered. No one got their drinks or food at the same time and she was a little bossy. The manager did apologize at the end of the evening but a little too late. :(

Good food and good happy hour. was great until it came time to pay the bill. The server was great but took almost 20 minutes before he took our card to pay the bill. By that time we had already ate and were just sitting there ready to leave.

Food was really good, I got the calamari it was alright, not what I am use to. I think I will stick to what I am use to though, so will try different appetizer. The sushi was really good and I really liked the green tea ice cream. The waitress was very at tentative. I will definitely be back!
