Fun and Fresh

The sushi was prepared right there as you ordered, they had some specific sushi dishes that are very good, and very accomidating for business. Was there for 3 weeks and visited the restaurant 5 times.

Many choices and loads of modern sushi rolls. Try the viva Las Vegas. The sushi is not very traditional but tasty. The service is quite slow though and not always very attentive. Good for a quick small bite.

We had lunch there and sat outside! It was very nice except for the construction going on at the building across the street. The food more than made up for the noise. We had RA chips and salsa, which is tuna tartare and wonton chips, spring rolls, and the Tempura shrimp roll. Excellent! Not to mention the Cucumber Margarita and... More

We stopped in just before 7 p.m. and were seated promptly. I ordered RA Ckin Shrimp and my wife ordered pineapple cheese wontons....both were great! My drink choice was a Moscow Mule...so refreshing and tasty! We will be back soon!

We had a quick lunch at this conveniently located restaurant in Chicago. Sadly the spicy tuna and yellowtail rolls were not super fresh. The quality of the food was good but not stellar. The nicest part of the meal was being able to eat outside and enjoy the local sites and sounds. Service was very good.

My mom and I walked from our hotel to RA, and we were so excited to get some yummy sushi! Our waiter told us to get the Spicy Edamame appetizer and man was it delicious! We even wanted to lick the rest of the sauce! I ordered The Crazy Monkey Roll and fell in love immediately. The mango and avocado... More

This was my first time dining at this restaurant and went with a few work colleagues for dining. RA has a nice neighborhood feel, there were a lot of locals in the restaurant watching the Blackhawks play-off game. The sushi was great and a different menu than most with excellent presentation. We sat at the bar due to arriving at... More

Fresh off the plane, this was a suggestion given by hotel. Great service and fantastic sushi. Ahi Tuna small plate was my favorite. Worth a visit for sure.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
