The Raw Bar has the best food. The sushi is always beautifully presented and tastes great. The servers are wonderful and you cannot go wrong eating there.

Raw was recommended to us while at tasting we had at New Clairvaux , More about that later. Frankly I had no expectations but we had not had sushi for quite awhile and well it did seem like something interesting to try. The decor is tastefully minimal. They had Peal Sake. The special rolls were outstanding.. but the the sashimi... More

Trendy looking sushi bar , in downtown Chico . Was surprised the sushi was actually quite good , We expected a bit the more "California" style sushi so it was a good surprise . Thu night it wasn't crowded the service was good , friendly . I'd go back

My daughter and I had dinner here for her birthday. Fabulous food and service. We had lemon drop martinis also, very good. Next time you are in the mood for sushi, give the Raw Bar a try.

I've been going to the Raw Bar for years. Sushi is always good, not great, but certainly good to very good. The staff is friendly and helpful. They always indulge me in putting together rolls that are not on the menu. It can be noisy, but not unbearably so.

This place really sucks, which was disappointing after we heard good things. The food was bad, service was slow, incompetent, and unfriendly and the atmosphere was noisy and crowded. My miso was salted beyond recognition, the edamame was slimy, and the nigiri was rubbery, fishy, and gross...my wife's food wasn't better though she did like her cocktail "...a green tea,... More

Fun, trendy, delicious resturant. Has a sushi bar in the middle, which make for a lively time. Waitress was attentive. The menu was unique and food delicious. We were all a happy crowd.

The raw fish here is always fresh so the sashimi is amazing. I love the Salmon Slam, Baby Caterpillar & New Orleans rolls...just to name a few. Their miso soup, Shaka Tuna, & BBQ Baby Back Ribs are delicious! The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is fun! A MUST TRY!

I read the reviews on here and had very high hopes. It was a nice atmosphere, clean and cool looking. I ordered two 4-piece sushi rolls and waited over an hour for them to come out. Weird, because they didn't require any cooking... and it takes about 5 minutes to roll up a sushi roll. finally I told the waitress... More

I don't go downtown much anymore because of the bums, grifters and homeless attracted to town the last 5 years. Went to a funeral and knew parking would be bad so I went early and to the Raw Bar for lunch. Man it is still great sushi, yes pricey but whether is a funeral or if your taking a girl... More
