Raku is my go restaurant in the 50th & France area. I cannot offer a complete review as I have only tried their sushi menu but they haven't given me any reason to try something else yet! The building itself does not do much to stick out from all the restaurants in the area but the inside is very nicely... More

My husband and I have been here numerous times. The martinis are generous. The tempura always arrives hot and tasty. We love the peppered steak special they have. The Gyoza are very good as well. The specialty rolls are excellent. We have never ordered one we didn't like. Try the Art of Maki and Captain Crunch. The tuna sashimi also... More

Hungry for something different, I decided to pull into the Raku japanese restaurant. Getting the sashimi plate, I was disappointed that the tuna, salmon, and bass tasted as though they had been refrigerated too long. Service was prompt and attentive. The Miso soup was top notch. I'd rate this as a Been There/Tried That and pass on it the next... More

I was never a fan of sushi until eating at Raku. The food is fresh, the special sushi rolls are delicious and the service is excellent. If you like sushi you will definitely like Raku. If you have never tried sushi, give it a try.

Well priced, tasty sushi rolls. I find myself coming back again and again, and have not been disappointed. Even with a shellfish allergy, Raku has been very accommodating to keep things safe while good!

Recent blogger/reviewers have lambasted Raku in Edina for aweful service. I've only been to Raku 3 or 4 times over the past few years, but last night the service was outstanding. Heidi did a terrific job - attentive and knowledgable. Food came when it was supposed to come, and it was delicious. The Playboy Roll is still our favorite roll.... More

I had read some of the reviews and was less than eager to go here, when someone suggested it. I was pleasantly surprised.There were 10 of us and each of us enjoyed our meals. Our server was helpful and we didn't have to wait long for our food on a Saturday night, when the restaurant was packed. I would definately... More

My daughter and I have passed this restaurant several times so thought we would try it. The decor is quite nice. At 12:45 on a Tuesday afternoon there were only three tables of people. I ordered the lunch sampler menu for $16. I had a choice of one soup or salad, an appetizer from at least 10 or more items... More

Have eaten here before, and it was fine. However, based on tonight's experience, will will NEVER return. We were in the restaurant for 1 1/2 hours, and it only took us 20 minutes to eat. Not only was the waitress slow, she was exceptionally aloof and unfriendly - unusual for a server in MN and in a Japanese restaurant. The... More
