Excellent service, our order got misplaced which our waiter was upfront about and took care of it above and beyond what was expected.

Good to very good Japanese restaurant. Nothing really special but dependable. Loud music is pointless and annoying in non-busy periods.

The hostess had her back to the door and didn’t acknowledge us for a while. Luckily a waiter came by and seated us.
The rice was not sticky enough or rolls were not rolled correctly, it was falling apart when we tried to pick it up with our chopsticks. The saving grace was our waitress, she was sweet and superb.

Service went down hill towards the end. Felt like we were forgotten about. Kids enjoyed their sushi. The hibachi wasn’t all that. I won’t order again. Service started out really great though. We have always had decent service in past so I know it was fluke but still disappointed.

The quality is really going downhill this year. My favorite lunch is the bara chirashi bowl, but it has recently been reduced to about half the size with no reduction in price. Other rolls are hit or miss. This use to be my favorite, not so much anymore.

The night went downhill from the moment we were seated...very slow attention to the table by the waitress, mixed drinks were mostly water and salty, when food arrived it was also very salty to point of not tasting anything else and small portions...left hungry and seeking better food

Went for my sons bday. The sushi was awesome. Waitress was not. She took our order and disappeared. 10 minutes later brought the sushi and then after we were DONE, brought my daughters meal out. It was bizarre. Suggestion would be to hold the sushi until everyone’s food was ready..... since she knew we were eating the sushi as our dinner. We had to track her down twice for a fork and then refills. I think someone overheard us at our table because eventually she got more attentive as the bill came. Thankfully this wasn’t my first time here and in the past the service has been a LOT better.

While our waitress was great the bartender was awful. 2 people behind the bar, only one making drinks and the other one just walking around. 15 min to get drinks in an empty restaurant is quite disappointing.

We were there for my birthday and had one shot and one sake bomb and right before we left we stopped at the bar for one last drink and the bar tender refused to serve us. Who gets cut off after one shot and one beer? So weird. I wouldn’t return.

We have been going to Ra for years and have loved it. Very good food, good patio atmosphere and usually good service. This time however, the waitress was terrible. First she forgot one of the drink orders. When that was straightened out we gave our dinner orders. One persons order came right out but the next "arrival was about 30 minutes later. The final order, mine, turned out not placed at all. WTF
OK. so then she takes my order again and it came out about 30 minutes later only its the wrong sushi order and its a double! I decided to cut my losses and asked for the check. I could eat something out of the refrigerator when I got home.
When the check came, it listed two rolls I did not order so I called the manager and complained. He did take off the meal I didn't order.
I'll go back again but if we draw the same waitress again I'll switch tables.

I am conflicted about recommending this restaurant. The food is quite good but, on this last visit, we had the worst service, honestly, I think I have ever had. Everyone was hungry. My daughter had just gotten out of work. I had a 6:45 reservation. We were seated immediately & our waiter came to take our order. He told us we still had time for Happy Hour which delighted us because it can get pricey. We ordered drinks, edamame, a few rolls & some tuna.

I swear to you, we did not receive our drinks until 7:30. I had ordered a mojito "not super sweet, please" but the waiter must have said no sugar at all. It was terrible but I didn't bother complaining because I knew we would never see a replacement. Our waiter said there was a "backup" at the bar but people around us were getting their orders. We got edamame & our tuna around 7:15 and then nothing. Our waiter came by to apologize twice.

When the table that had just been seated 10 minutes earlier got their food & drinks at 7:45, I wanted to call it and just leave. I rarely take things personally but this started to feel personal. Our daughter really wanted sushi so we stayed. At 7:55, we got the remainder of our order. My husband had wanted to order something earlier but never got the chance nor did he want to when he saw how long it was taking. When the person different from our waiter brought the food he apologized for the wait, took the rolls off the bill & gave us a coupon for "next time." The drinks were still billed at full price even though we had ordered them during happy hour as was the tuna. We stopped at a fast food restaurant afterward.

Overall, it was a terrible night. It was stressful, we were hungry & the price we paid was not worth it. The food is good. That's the only plus. There was no excuse for the delay.
