I made reservations at the wrong restaurant, and they still made room for us. Great service, and great prices considering how much Sushi my husband and daughter ate

Hostess was not very friendly but that is only negative. Food was amazing and service was good. The Monkey roll (can’t remember full name) was our favorite along w the garlic edamame.

Service was terrible- probably the worst service at any dining establishment I’ve ever been to. Good was fine- service was a joke and some clear staffing issues that lacked proper training.

Don’t dine here the day after a holiday like Mother’s Day. 3 different rolls where completely out of stock and the frozen drink maker was broken again.

The RA in North Scottsdale is a little bit more reliable.

The majority of the place was empty. When we checked in they said there would be a 30 minute wait??!?!? I said we had reservations with Open Table so they sat us right away right next to a table of 6 with kids! So seriously only about 4 tables were being used and all of them pushed together...COVID or not this made no sense

Crazy Monkey Roll and Lobster Mango Roll were super yummy! Black raspberry sake was also very good, strawberry and mango mojitos were to die for! Loved the reserve table option on website! Will be back!

Food was fast at first but took 30 minutes to get the next plate of food. So slow I ended up cancelling my order and leaving hungry. Restaurant is a bit dirty. Dirty windows and floors and they give you plastic forks and cups for your soy sauce which makes it feel cheap even if the prices aren’t.

The staff at Ra went above and beyond on our date night! We were greeted in a friendly and welcoming manner. Our server Griffin was attentive and professional. Chef James came out to check if we needed anything and this was the nicest part of our entire experience. Food was delicious and at our request we received a spicy sauce made especially for us. Thanks for treating us so nicely! Customer service is 5 Star!

The food was really good although the kitchen was out of glass cups so they gave us Styrofoam cups for our waters. Also the waiter made a comment that Fridays and Saturdays are so busy that they run out of dishes and silverware all the time... I I love the food and I’ll still go back!

Every roll we purchased had diced imitation crab as a “base“. Even though it wasn’t indicated on the menu. Quality of sushi was terrible.

Server spoiled the experience. Sushi was very good although limited selection. Sushi was served Helton Skelton. Ramekins to put soy sauce & wasabi in weren’t there when sushi arrived. Took 5 minutes to get them after the sushi arrives. Server disappeared.
Later came back & said they were out of selections. Ordered alternative offering. Never came after 15 minutes And tracking down manager & asking for check. Server appeared like nothings was wrong. No thanks. Don’t bother. Your blood pressure will thank you. Are there many years ago & it was great & classy. No more.

Food was okay. Rolls weren’t that creative. Steak for our gluten-intolerant guest was overcooked and lukewarm. Restroom smelled terrible. Strangely, we arrived at 8:30 for our 8:45 reservation and had to wait outside until our reservation time even though there were plenty of empty tables.

Food was very tasty but the service was absolutely awful. We waited 45min to an hour just for drinks. Everyone’s food came out at different times, very far apart. Waters were never refilled and our server avoided us at all cost. I would love to return for the food but with service like that I’ll be sure to take my money else where.

Partner's second martini not served with specific brand requested, but house pour.
Food and ambience fine, but a little pricey for the results. Waitress very accommodating. Overall very good place to eat, but I thought a bit over priced. No serious complaints of any sort.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. The food was great but I was pretty disappointed at the end of the night. I was telling the waiter the entire time how I wanted to try the Strawberry Nigori sake. Unfortunately they were out of the strawberry, which was totally fine.. I asked for the other one they had. He brought two shot glasses and a I poured two shots and noticed the glass was dirty and had lipstick all over the rim. I immediately let my server know and he said "Do you just want me to pour the sake into a new shot glass for you?" Now we all know during these times we are in, that was a obvious NO.. so instead of bringing me a new bottle since I had to waste an entire shot of my $16 12 oz bottle, he brought me a new shot glass and took the saki I already poured. It was just disappointing he didn't offer to at least take care of that bottle or even provide us with a new one. In my photo was before I even realized there was lipstick on the rim.. If you zoom in you can see the lipstick.
