Living in Hawai`i, eating Japanese cuisine is very common for us. This restaurant in Las Vegas, however, stands out. It is not "fine" dining, it is better than that. It is enjoyable. From the welcome, the suggestion of sake, the quality of the food, the attentive service, the cleanliness of the restaurant (including the restroom), to the sayonara, terrific. Am... More

Although the Restaurant is not near the strip it's definitely worth the drive. The restaurant is pretty small and parking is somewhat difficult. Make reservations at least a week in advance for more options. When I called for a Thursday reservation, they had either 6:30pm or 9:00pm and it was 4 days away. I went with the 6:30pm reservation and... More

Took my husband to Vegas for his fiftieth and decided to go off the beaten path for dinner with friends. This place is tiny, so reserve early. They bring you a series of amazing Japanese tapas, basically. We truly enjoyed.

I took my husband here for his 40th birthday dinner. I had made a reservation a few weeks ahead of time before we came to town. The restaurant is fairly small and has a great atmosphere. We started with a sake flight, as we did not have much experience with it before(, well, compared to the many they had listed.)... More

I left this place thinking when I was going to get back. Food is art here. I tried as many dishes as my stomach allowed me, and about as many I still wanted to try. The small, almost familiar environment makes you aware of every single step that they are taking to make your plate. The chef (I guess he... More

We had our own room which was nice. We tried a lot of the food on the menu. The Kobe beef was my favorite. Great for sampling. The dessert was great too. However, we had a party of 6 which they automatically added on gratuity and the waiter wasn't even that good to deserve that much tip. He was inattentive... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant. There are a variety of small dishes to try that the wait staff will give great seasoning suggestions for each that they have at the end of the table. We loved everything, but especially loved the steamed foie gras custard, crispy asparagus, and in house made tofu. We got a bottle of... More

My second visit to Raku and it equaled my first visit, in which I just didn't have the words to describe just how spectacular the food and service there was. You can order of the menu or allow the chef to prepare some 10-15 dishes to taste a wide variety from Freshly made Tofu to Pork, grilled on skewers. Wide... More
