Success! Thanks for posting your review of Raw Japanese Restaurant & Lounge. You’ve done the world some good today.

Yes, the service can be lacking but.....

if you know what you are looking for the food is actually quite good. They do seem to need some better management of the crowds they get. I never went with a party just a few of us and the wait staff often did try to seat us within 20 mins. I would avoid the happy hour, drinks not as good and the food very ordinary. But if you stay and try their sake and the speciality maki- yum!

Horrible service!

Friends and I went to Raw on a Friday night. We were told it would be 45 minutes for a table and so we said we'd wait at the bar. After an hour, we still hadn't been seated. When we asked the manager, he thought we decided to eat at the bar. Since he realized now we didnt, he would seat another table and then, us right away. Another 30 minutes go by and nothing. In that time, the other group (which should be no... view more

what happened?

what happened here? i haven't been to raw in several months, and was looking forward to sushi with a very good friend...i'm fine with their prices, but the sushi (and everything else we ordered) lacked the luster that i was expecting. moreover, our waitstaff was slow and aloof; when we told him our dumplings weren't hot, his response was ""oh"", and he walked away!! i wished i had gone to vics - may not have raw's at... view more

Not worth it

It food was less than mediocre. It food wasnt worth it and overprice. (who charges &12 for two shrimp tempura. And there was no indication of it). So not worth it.

Great sushi

Creative and delicious rolls, nice environment, and fantastic service...I will definitely be back! I didn't have reservations but I was still seated promptly. The booths along the opposite side of the restaurant seemed much more comfortable than the more crowded tables where we sat though.

Inept Managers

I had high expectations for this place given the ratings....I was so wrong.\r
Ambient: dark and narrow in the inside (waiters bumping into you as you eat - no apologies ), chilling outside (if you're like you get to sit near a heater, otherwise bring a blanket)\r
Food: good, but below POD \r
Service: OMG!!!!!! we get in with a reservation, we wait 25 MIN to sit (I remind you: we had a reservation), wh

worst customer service ever

Worst experience ever. I've never been treated so badly in my all life. We reserved a table for 10 PM and at 11 PM we were still waiting and they didn't offer us drinks, no appetizers...we were starving!!!\r
How is the food?I cannot tell...we left after more than one hour of waiting. They should learn how to treat customers!!

Speechless - worst dining experience ever

I reserved a table 3 hrs in advance.\r
I waited for 1 full hour with no drinks, water or apologies from the staff.\r
I left embarassed after they were trying to kick out a table to have me sit.\r
Just don't get into the restaurant business if you can't sit clients.

I've been here several times and have always been completely satisfied. The bartenders are fantastic and are exremely knowledgeable about the drinks--I reccommend trying the sake they often have themselves infused with fruit--quite tasty! As for the sushi--party in my mouth. Best I have ever had, and that's quite a bit for myself. All in all, I'd have to say that combined with the atmosphere and variety offered, ... view more
