I went for dinner last night and used a groupon I recently purchased. The staff was friendly, the sushi was excellent and the prices were totally reasonable. My wife and I shared a salad with the ginger dressing, a spicy tuna raw roll, a Futo Maki roll, and the Art of Maki roll. Everything was excellent, well made and very... More

Very few times I tend to go second time in the same place because I like to explore. But in this case I was twice and, even more, for two consecutive days! Quality of the food is matched only by the chef's pleasure for details when he prepares the plates :) A special note for avocado salad: one of the... More

We tried the Sassy Lady and Captain Crunch rolls and both were great! Our server was very friendly and helpful. We were going to catch a movie in about 45 minutes when we went too, but the service was really quick.

We stopped for sushi and ended up getting several flights of saki due to the amazing variety. Their Sashimi is very well prepared and service was excellent. We will definitely be back.

I've had many meals here and tipped more than a few beers at the popular bar. It's a great people watching spot since the bar faces a wall of windows that look out onto the busy sidewalk. Ask Kat to pour you a chilled Gray Goose with a touch of fresh lime. It's an experience you'll never forget.

It's been a few months since we've been to Raku, and I'd forgotten how fresh their fish is. The quality of everything from the hirame to the hottategai was mouth freshening. Service was terrific as always, but the main event is the sushi.

Fresh fish! Authentic staff. Kinda pricey but this stuff is melting in my mouth! Solid drink pours as well. Owner is grateful for the business and that is very nice!

What a pleasant surprise! After reading the reviews so far I hesitated to come in, but finally I did and am glad I did so. Nice service, casual atmosphere, and one of the richest sushi/sashimi dishes I've had for the money. Will return.

Unique interior, great atmosphere and awesome sushi. Sometimes, the service takes a while but it's worth the wait.
