Description: RAW Sushi & Sake Lounge, located in Philadelphia's renowned Stetson building on 1225 Sansom Street has been steadily growing after five years of hard work, customer loyalty, and good fortune. Between our exotic sushi bar, traditional hot entrees, or overstuffed specialty rolls, you're guaranteed to find something you love. The fifteen feet glass bar houses an impressive shelf of exotic sakes that caters to new tasters as well as sake connoisseurs. While you dine, take in the view of Japanese lamps floating down from the bamboo ceiling, or step outside into our private outdoor courtyard and lounge under the stars.

My wife and I were here last Friday and what can I say...pretty good. The price point was right on for Philly and the presentations were nice. Rice and fish was good, especially the uni, and the quail eggs were plump and fresh. The atmosphere was comfortable and service was good. We'll be back again.

It was quiet, excellent service and with our sushi deluxe, just the right amount of food. The decor was nice and understated.

Have to agree with other reviewers about good quality and freshness of food being served there. Because of that and that there is a big selection of seafood we haven't try yet, we'll be back. A little of a downside was the seating arrangement there. The place is narrow and long and our table was right on the passage so we felt like seating in a hallway. Surprisingly, it was not crowded this Saturday evening.

This place consistently has a very fresh sushi menu w/ a wide selection. The inside is a bit cavelike and fishy smelling so I highly rec sitting outside if possible. The prices are very reasonable. Apps (incl $22 special) entrees and drinks for 2 were only $80. Service was excellent

I at here with a friend I met at a conference I attended. We walked to this place from the convention center. It was exciting, because the city was having lots of activities on the street such as sumo wrestling and music etc..
The atmosphere was good. The food was great. That was the first time that I had edemame in the shell. It was terrific!
