    The steak teriyaki was very tough and chewy The service is awful. While we were still eating, the server came to the table and asked us to settle the bill. Will Never go back.

    Booked a table for Happy Hour. The menu is not great and the service while friendly was slow. The overall quality of the food requires some attention. Happy Hour should offer a tasting of some of the best foods on your menu. Not the case here. I have been here before and had a better experience. There are far better restaurants in Old Town. I hope this one will continue to approve and focus on improving the food.

    First time here. Plenty of options to choose from. We were on a double date and ordered a few appetizers and a bunch of different rolls. The food was fresh and we didn’t have to wait long. The rolls kept falling apart when picked up, so that made a mess and hard to eat but the flavors were great. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly.

    I had two bad experiences here before from a specific server but my boyfriend and I decided to give it another shot and the manager and bartender David took amazing care of us. He was personable, friendly, and very attentive. He made sure we had everything we needed and actually redeemed the restaurant, if we were to come back we’d probably only want him as our server, he was fantastic! The food was really great as well and we really had a good time thanks to him :)

    RA sushi - both Scottsdale locations is our go to for sushi. Fresh, plentiful and tasty. Staff is excellent. However, this visit, the glass door to the outside seating area was dirty as was the glass enclosures for the fish. Not sure if it is the time of year and being an indoor/outdoor restaurant that dust from trees is collecting...but, it just wasn't as clean as it usually is.

    We love RA sushi and come here every time we are visiting the area. The food was great but we felt like this location has become run down much like the rest of the old town area. We will keep coming for the awesome food, but may choose to switch locations to one that is cleaner and more maintained in the future.

    We were sat promptly since we did make a reservation. We were not greeted for about 15 minutes even though the tables around us were sat after us and being helped. We finally had our server come over, and rushed through everything for our order as it seemed like we were forgotten about. We love the food, however the service was not great.

    I hope the sushi is good because the grilled items were of mediocre quality. Ordered grilled steak medium rate and it came out well done and dry. Shrimp was dry and tough. We had about a 20 minute wait until our appetizers showed up. While waiting for those I asked the waitress "you are not going to bring the appetizer and entrees out all at once are you". She said of course not. the entrees showed up about 2 minutes after the appetizer so I guess she was technically accurate. Would not recommend

    Late night bite, 10:00pm, although open until midnight. Place was empty, the staff was still there but service was non-existent. Had to go to the bar myself to get the club soda that was never brought to the table with other drinks. The food was delicious but doubtful we’d return based on awful service.

    Terrible service. Had a group of 10, took half an hour to get drinks. We ordered at 6:40–Happy Hour goes until 7:00–once the bill came (over $400), all of the HH food we ordered was full price. When I brought it to the server’s attention, she wouldn’t honor the HH prices because it’s based on when you get your check. What?? That’s not a think. She was very rude throughout our dinner. Won’t return or recommend.

    Our server was great. Food was good, but a bit over priced. We had an incredibly loud, obnoxious group (one gal in particular) next to our table making it impossible to have a conversation at out table which was unfortunate as we were meeting my daughter’s boyfriend for only the second time and we couldn’t really hear each other. (We dine out a lot and are used to all types of noise levels, however, this woman was over the top loud). I have always wanted to try RA and sadly we probably won’t be back. Again, our server was great, and the food good but a little over priced, but the group next to us made a night I was really looking forward to disappointing.

    We were seated fast but no one came to take our order for 15 mins, the order was wrong, chicken was burnt, the noodles where overcooked and asparagus was also burnt. Server was def busy but made more time for some of the other patrons. I would say this is the worst experience I have had in a long time. Not going back to this location.

    Great place to come with friends on a night out, not so great with two ornery kids. My kids did try new foods, but they were both not thrilled with their choices. I had the poke bowl and was slightly disappointed with the quality of the ahi tuna. It was stringy and tough in parts. Our service was good at first, but quickly took a dive when it started getting busier.
