    The food was excellent but the service was incredibly slow. The only redeeming factor was that our server correctly got our entire in during happy hour and we paid happy hour prices. The tables were also incredibly close together and we were bumping the people seated behind us.

    Ended up walking out from our table. Under staffed, took 15 minute past reservation to get seated. Once seated, no one came to ask for drinks etc. dirty, out dated decor. Walked to Azumi and had exceptional service and food.

    While I think our waiter said he was new, he did the best he could and that wasn’t much of a problem. We had to wait a while for him a few times but we saw that he was really busy. I got the Hibachi filet mignon and lobster, about 45 minutes after I ordered. It wasn’t hot, not cold but not hot. It was decent but in no way shape or form worth $43! My friend really enjoyed the pineapple cream cheese fried wontons and her salmon burrito. The salmon poke bowl she ordered was good she said too much sauce on it and too sweet. I’ve been to RA a few times in the past and found it worth it. This time was lacking. We were not greeted at all by the hostess. The place was hopping, so business seems to be booming. Will think twice before I go again.

    The ambiance was nice, drinks and sushi was nice, but the food was in my opinion not the best. I order two different meals and the were both unsatisfactory. I tasted everyone at my table's food and still was not pleased.

    Overall it was an OK dinner but the one thing that my girlfriends and I were not a huge fan of was the service our server was not super attentive and the hostess waited a long time to see us or even acknowledge us when we first walked in. as for sushi a lot of their menu special rolls are deep-fried and have cream cheese in them which I don’t mind every once in a while but there should be a few all raw rolls on the menu so I wish they would’ve had more of a raw variety. but the rolls that I did order the surf and turf and a yellowtail Ponzu roll were very good!

    Over the years that it has been open, Ra Sushi has not carried the same standard that it once had. The server started off on a good note. My sister didn't understand the menu and she ordered raw Salmon and said that she wanted to order something different. The manager, I guess, came over and took her order at 8:45ish for a different entre. My food came out quick and so did my husband's food. We ordered another round of drinks and waited. Now it is 9:30p and my sister's entre is still not out. We flagged down our server, I felt like he was avoiding us, and asked about our drinks and her entre. He gave some excuse about the large number of take out orders etc. Honestly, I do not care about that...manage it better! Finally her food comes out, the order that the supposed manager placed, comes to the table and the order is incorrect. She asks for the drinks that we never received and a to-go container. At this point, we've been here since 7:45p and it is close to 10p. I am disappointed because this was her birthday dinner and she is still hungry! Before we leave at 10pm, I go to the bathroom. I do not believe that it had been cleaned in 2 weeks. There were mouse and rat droppings on the floor of the stalls. The sinks were rusted and chipped (how does that even happen) and the light fixtures were dusty and falling apart. Back to the dining room... THE WALLS WERE DIRTY. Was there a food fight? I do not know how that is even possible. The plaster on the walls were also very damaged, again leading me to believe that there was an incident in the restaurant. Overall, this was a truly disappointing night especially since our tab was over $200. So we paid $200 for disappointment and disgust.

    I'm a sushi snob and this trendy decor restaurant does a fair job of blending many things while doing none of them really well. Prices were reasonable. Sushi options were fair until you asked for something off menu. Staff were all friendly and in this time of worker shortage, fairly well staffed. I attribute the service level to a lack of training rather than a lack of bodies. Probably too much turnover. Will go again if someone suggests but not my first choice.

    Came here for a first date and it was a pretty good date spot. Ordered a bottle of cold apple sake which was tasty, chicken skewers for appetizer and two sushi rolls. Food was good, drinks were good, and price was good. Definitely coming back (especially to give the happy hour a try!)

    Where should I begin- After being seated by the hostess, we sat for 10-15 minutes before our waiter greeted us (a table of 4). We received our appetizers the same time our meals came out. I had to send my dinner plate back to the kitchen twice due to the food being cold. Our waiter did not come back regularly to refill drinks. We waited so long that I had to go to the bar to ask for a pitcher of water for the table and walk it back myself. The waiter also did not remember to bring our second appetizer of Vegetable Tempura, out until all of our meals were completed. If you are spending $200+ at a place that you believe is reputable for their food and service, and get treated worse than you would’ve been at a fast food chain. Something is not right here.

    We sat in the bar area at the high tops. The waitress litterally talking to two tables as if she was friend's with them. We didn't even get drinks for at least 20 min after being seated. She claimed she thought we left which was the reason she was so late getting to us.We ordered everything at once litterally to avoid waiting longer.Then we watched her go back to the tables and conversate more which added another 15 min for our food to be placed in the system.. Overall, we won't be going back anytime soon. The service has definitely went down.The place is mismanaged

    RA sushi isn’t what it used to be. The service was really great and our server was such a nice guy. The food was brought out fast and all at once. The wonton appetizer was close to burnt. The rolls were mediocre at best. We ordered the chili shrimp roll and had to send it back because of how bad it tasted and how it was not what we previously had. Overall, a place I once used to love is decreasing in quality even though the service was good.

    We have been going to Ra since it opened in baltimore years ago. The portions have shrunk, the quality has fallen drastically. I do not understand how you change a menu item, call it the same and charge more. The bathrooms were on the level of a gas station, disgusting. Most likely will never return.

    RA used to be our favorite go-to sushi place, pre-pandemic. They had incredible specialty sushi rolls. This was our first visit back to RA post-pandemic, and boy has the menu changed. The specialty rolls are mostly made with the fake krab, intertwined with cream cheese and some other stuff. Very few true specialty sushi rolls, (fake krab is not sushi) and the rolls we had just didn't have very much taste. We ordered a specialty cocktail and was told it would be an hour before more of the puree would be ready.....really?? On a positive note, our waiter was awesome, and the music wasn't blaring. Won't be going back for a while.

    Service was poor and slow despite the place being nearly empty. Lots of employees eating fast food next to us while we waited 10 minutes for someone to come to our table. Sushi rolls all fell apart. Not the RA I remember. Wouldn’t come back.

    This was the second time my wife an I have been to RA. First time was a wonderful experience. This time was not. The food was excellent, but the service was severely lacking. We waited 20 minutes before a drink order was taken. My wife asked for water, which only came after we had asked twice. Overall the service was slow and unacceptable. I usually wouldn’t mind if it was a busy night, but our waiter only had 2 tables. Again, the food was terrific, but when you are spending $100+ for sushi and a couple of drinks, I would expect better service than we received. Next time we will order sushi and just eat it at home.

    It was my daughter’s birthday and she specifically requested RA Sushi. We’ve been here before and have always had an amazing experience. This experience was so subpar, we will never come back. I made reservations and when we showed up, the restaurant was fairly empty. The host seems confused where to seat us and went back to the kitchen. When she came back out, she seated us at a table that was not prepared and did not have silverware, plates or napkins. The waiter was very pleasant but made excuses for everything we asked for. For example, when the food was finally brought out, we asked for plates. He said they were busy and the plates were being washed. We told him he could give us plates off of any other table, which he did do. He made excuses for our food taking forever to be served. He made excuses for forgetting our drinks. It was ridiculous. When we got the food, it was not hot. It tasted dried out and was a total disappointment. I think that explains why the restaurant was dead. I’m not sure what happened that everything was so horrible but it was a huge disappointment for all of us.

    The service was cool. We didn't have table ware, we had to ask after we received our food. The manager asked me if I knew how a lemon drop was made after I asked to put bourbon in it on account of i drank dark earlier in the day. I told her so and she said she wanted to make sure because I couldn't send it back. I was confused. My waitress was great so I tipped her well. Food was really good.
