Sushi? Nooooooooooo!

Ok, I have eaten here on several occasions. This is my wife's favorite place in Chico, for sushi. I, on the other hand have never had a good meal at Raw Bar. This visit was no exception. Beginning with our entry to the front door, there was the powerful & distinct odor of cat piss & rotten fish... read more

A bit noisy but the excellent selection of high quality sushi makes up for it. I have never had better miso soup in my life..honestly! The last time I went I got something I am pretty sure wasn't what I ordered but it tasted good so it all worked out. It's too pricey for me to go to all the... More

I try to have sushi in every town I visit, this place was nicely decorated, the staff was friendly, they were very busy, yet they stayed smiling. we had 4 dishes, two were bland, 2 were good. I probably would not come back since it was not a wow factor for me.

Exceptional sushi....better than anyplace in San Francisco. I've had sushi in Sacramento and at "fancy" restaurants in San Francisco, but nothing comes close to the quality, variety and service found at The Rawbar.

Best spot in downtown area for hand made, delicious sushi. Cost is also up there, but worth it! Reservations are a good idea as well.

Great food in a nice atmosphere. My wife and I have been coming here for years, and it's been continually great. The sishito (sp?) peppers, oyster hot shots and shaka tuna are a few of the many great eats here. Oh yeah, don't be put off by the 1-star rating. The same guy gave the Red Bluff Cozy Diner four...

The food is delicious. Do not leave without trying the Shaka Tuna. Heaven in a glass. Drinks are very adult, very tasty. Service is always spot on.

This restaurant is consistently wonderful. It is gourmet all the way. Yet the prices are reasonable. The staff is knowledgeable about their sushi menu and their entrees.

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
