The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was contemporary. Drinks were great, but the water was not flowing. My husband had to ask for a water fill. They filled his cup and left mine almost empty. We were never asked if we wanted a fill up on our alcoholic drinks either. Good experience, service was just not on top.

Sat outside on a Thursday night. Took a while to get a server even though there were only a couple of other tables of people outside. Sushi was only average.

Ate at Ra with my husband and three grandkids. Food was delicious! A bit pricey as we are Canadian and our dollar is at an unfavourable rate. We sat on the terrace and found it extremely noisy from the traffic on Scottsdale road.

While visiting the area we saw this restaurant and thought it would be a nice place to fill our sushi cravings. It didn’t disappoint. The restaurant wasn’t full and we had a nice meal from beginning to end. The energetic music was a little loud but we could still have a conversation at our table. We asked our waitress for a couple recommendations and she had great taste. Everything we had was delicious. We will be back to this restaurant for sure.

The service was very good as was the selection of sushi and sashimi. On balance we found the sashimi to be more interesting though the rolls and nigiri sushi were certainly acceptable....though not exceptional. Pricing was very reasonable, especially in light of the overall quality and presentation. Would recommend for anyone looking for a casual sushi dinner in Scottsdale. Attractive setting with a reasonable sound level.

This is not life changing Sushi/Japanese food in any way. But, it is reliably good, somewhat more reasonably priced than other places, very service and a good selection of sake. My friend had coconut infused sake and enjoyed it. Had to send back the Las Vegas roll for some weird tasting cream cheese. The server was very pleasant and helpful. California roll and tempura veggie roll were good, the tempura veggie roll definitely a repeat item. Not as hip or cool as it once was-easy to get a table on a Saturday night (which says something in itself) but a really decent alternative to some much higher priced places in town.

Attentive staff, great service.
Fish was fresh and tasty. It was in the sides that they failed. Had the garlic edamame, but I tasted only chili and salt, no garlic. Beans were also overcooked.For a sushi restaurant, the rice that I had, even though it was on its own as a side, was dry and tasteless.

They have happy hour prices on select food and drink items until 7pm. Food and service was great. The only negative I have are the hostesses. It’s a bad first impression. Have gone there twice, both times almost left because of hostesses. We had a reservation for outside and they went to seat us inside, then they didn’t have a table available for outside because they sat someone without a reservation there. So we had to wait until they got a table ready.

The sushi and appetizers were top notch. Our service was just okay. The waitress didn’t know the drink menu - what beers were on tap and what were bottled. We didn’t get our drink refills on time. The food being really good made up for that. Sushi was fresh and the selection was incredible.

Service was not good. Wine had to be returned as it tasted like the bottle was old. They did bring us a freshly opened bottle of same wine. Much better. Music is too loud. Hard to have a conversation over it. Food was fair. Not impressed. Have been there before and was good. Did you get a new chef. Waitress seemed to care less about what she was doing.

Dined here Christmas day. Sushi orders were great, but cooked food never arrived. Asked waiter over and over for our teriyaki chicken as we had one family member who doesn't like sushi. We all finished our meal... Waiting over an hour.....No chicken. As a result my daughter never got her meal and the establishment didn't seem to care so we left. Terrible service and they did not care. Waiter told us that everyone in the back in the kitchen was fighting and oopsy he was so sorry . I do not recommend this restaurant

Christmas Day. The kitchen was overwhelmed. 2/5 dinners came out and the other 3 dinners came 15 minutes later, one of which was a child’s dinner of teriyaki chicken and the chicken tasted aweful. The manager came out to the table to diffuse the situation and explained sushi dishes are served faster with out looking down to notice the 2 dishes delivers were not sushi.

We were seated in the outdoor seating area. We were not greeted or spoken to for 20 minutes. We couldn’t get the staff to even make eye contact. We decided to leave. Spoke to the manager. He was very polite and apologetic. He offered to comp our meal. We declined. It’ll be awhile before we try it again.

We've been going here since they opened at Kierland, then moved to this new location, this was the 1st time that the sushi was not up to par. The pork gyoza arrived cold, sent back and the new order was hot but soggy. Not up to their standards for sure. Maybe being Labor Day? which shouldn't matter whatsoever. Very disappointing.

Good food but terrible service and extremely noisy. This is the second time we have come to this location since they moved from Kierland. The first time was a disaster, but we figured they were still settling in to the new place. Unfortunately, they have not improved. It took us almost 20 minutes to get a couple glasses of wine. I would assume that the same staff came over from the old location, and if that is true, what changed? The old location was very efficient always. This place is total chaos. Whoever is managing this place has no clue on how to run a restaurant. Our server told us our drinks were taking a long time because the bar was backed up. That is a ridiculous excuse! Bad, bad management. Also they had music blaring so loud that you couldn't even carry on a conversation. We will never return here.
