Good sushi confusing menu

The sushi was excellent. But you could get lost in the multiple menus. Since I tend to order the same thing it wasn't a problem. Service was very attentive. Water glasses filled, drinks re-ordered. Very good.

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.

RA is a nice sushi restaurant price is medium - high, but food is good. It is extremely popular, sometimes hard to find a table. Not the fastest service in town.

A must try if you're into sushi. We ordered the dynamite scallops twice it was so good. Definitely a keeper in my book. Service was fast and spot on. Plus she was very knowledgeable of the menu.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. We were seated promptly but after that it was all downhill. This place was extremely loud. We waited almost 15 minutes for someone to come and take our drink order. After seeing multiple servers walking past our table without even glancing at us, we got up and left.

We had two drinks and some nigiri and tuna and avocado. Squid, scallop and Octopus. Squid had better texture than the Octopus. Nice place to sit outside for a drink. Waiter was super friendly.

We just love this place. Fantastic sushi, and this time we were able to sit outside and people-watch -- which made the whole experience even better. We also love the one in Las Vegas.

We found this restaurant by searching on the web, found a great review and we did not make a mistake! Came twice for dinner while staying in Chicago! Some of the chef's specials are just fantastic, take a seat by the counter and order directly to the chef! Miso soup is just fantastic! Whatever you order will just be amazing.... More

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.
