Wonderful food. I have the garlic edamame, lobster spring rolls, salmon nigiri, and the ra’rockin roll with miso soup.

I loved everything. There was nothing left on our plates. Amazing food and service.

Food was enjoyable. We don't go for amazing sushi but for a fun atmosphere. The service was really terrible this last time however. Had to ask numerous times for each request....4 was the magic number. Received the bill before our food was finished coming out!

We go a lot so comparatively the experience has been better. The last time we went we had the same waitress and she seems to forget we are there. No refills or second drink requests and my meal came out way later than the other 3 people at the table, not a hard one, just a Poke Bowl with white rice (wasn’t a roll or Entree).

Poor service. Server went on break and no one covered for them. They forgot an order. Did not check to refill drinks or give us our check promptly even when the server was back. They did comp us a drink and a roll as some consolation but it didn't make up for the poorest service I've had in some time.

The sushi is good and fresh. The rolls are so-so (cream cheese is featured in most of the rolls). Ambience is nice and the service is good. It is a good place to go before going to a movie.

This was an average sushi restaurant....the fish was very fresh, yet the service can be improved, especially when it was not crowded. We had to ask for wasabi and ginger after our sushi orders were brought out- that was a huge detail miss for us.

Food was good but our appetizer showed up AFTER our entreé. I told our waitress my cocktail was weak but she didn't do anything about it. I'll probably boycut them for a year.

We enjoyed our food and the service was good; however, we were told there was a hot kitchen and a cold kitchen so food would come on courses. This was fine but my dining companion and I both ordered items from the hot kitchen and my food came a full 20 minutes after hers. Also, our waitress was new and didn't seem to have received much training before being put on the floor. She couldn't answer Amy questions about our food and had to keep finding someone to ask delaying our meal

Most of the food was great as usual, but the tuna nigiri did not seem as fresh or tender as it normally is. The service was definitely not as good as it usually is. Some of our dishes were forgotten about and we spent a lot of time waiting around for our server, even though it wasn't very busy. Will still return since we usually have a good experience, but I was disappointed that we had a mediocre experience since we went to celebrate my birthday.

Always been a fan of RA. Tonight wasn't good. Service was incredibly slow, waitress began nice but she didn't handle the kitchen delays well. We added an extra roll that didn't arrive for over 30 minutes, I asked for the check after 35 and at 40 min the roll arrived.

Food was great as usual. Service was decent but not as good as usual (we are regulars). Although it was Valentine's Day, we made our reservation for 4:00 (because we had a small child with us) and it was definitely not busy at this time. It took awhile to order more drinks/food and they definitely missed out on additions to the bill because of this. The manager was very nice (as usual), but our server would disappear at times, missing out on additional food/drink orders that would have occurred. After waiting for her and watching her chat with another table for 20 mins, we ended up asking for the check instead of desert/drinks.

We sat at the terrible round table by the cupboards. This is the 2nd Saturday I've been and there were nowhere near enough servers. What a shame since their food is outstanding. It's simply not an enjoyable experience to be largely ignored, then wait and wait for every request.

Not the best experience this time as I had to wait 45 minutes for one of my rolls. Too many families with kids making a lot of noise and no one disciplining them. Too much reality for a fun ladies night on a Friday evening!

Meh. Our waitress was very pleasant, but service was a bit slow. we asked for a heater (seated outside) and one never arrived. The Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura was very good, but the scallop dynamite was overcooked and very fishy, and the spicy tuna was bland and fishy. We won't be back

We came here early on a Sunday evening for dinner. We got the patio seating we requested and right in front of a TV that had our game on. The sushi was really good, they have some unique combos, and our waiter was very attentive. They offer happy hour on Sunday so we ordered off that menu and we weren't disappointed.
