    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.

    I only give it a three because the food took so long. Our waiter explained there was a birthday party going on but it still took a long time. Cameron was amazing and did the best he could but if it were faster, the rating would be better.

    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.

    All the seats were wet and sticky, it was my birthday and this is usually my go to spot. The sushi rolls were falling apart. The chili shrimp roll tasted weird. And the chicken skewers were very tiny. The drinks tasted like juice. The bartender and server were to busy..

    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.

    I was celebrating my birthday with my significant other. After waiting 45 minutes to be seated, each dish arrived at my table every 25 minutes. My drink came in a smaller glass. I was told that the correct glasses were dirty, but no compensation was offered. The New Watermelon Drink was delicious, but it was not the correct portion. 5 different dishes were ordered initially, the waiter failed to put in the Filet Mignon Roll, which I was excited to try. When asked to put it in, the waiter informed me that the wait would be even longer than before, despite the fact the we have been there now for almost 2 hours seated. The Manager was called to the table, no apology was given but she did COMP the Chilli Shrimp Roll off the bill. I did not enjoy my night at all.

    They are truly short staffed and it shows. Service was extremely slow, our food took forever to come. Even the host was confused as to when we could sit even with us making a reservation. They ran out of linens, our meal was lack luster at best once it finally came. We did alert the manager and she was very kind and understanding. She handled it as best she could, however I have no desire to return for quite some time.
