Met friends here for dinner. Was very pleased with the options for drinks and food. Had a variety of apps and sushi. All were delicious. Highly recommended for a fun night with friends but also looked good for couples as well.

Nice place, good service. Need to up their sushi game. Our server didn't speak English all that well but it really wasn't a problem, I was curious about where she came from (Japan?), what she was doing in the U.S.and my date wanted to talk to her about her time in Japan. But we were limited in what we could... More

Older Americans such as I have watched with amazement at the new and trendy Sushi restaurants sprouting up everywhere across the United States. But wait, you say! Sushi has been around for years! Well, I recall in the not-so-long-ago, when PIZZA was the new pop-culture trend exploding across the country. By now of course that's common place, and Domino's Pizza... More

Raku does not try to reinvent sushi as some are trying to do, which makes their predictability desirable. Those who enjoy sushi know what they want & don't need "new" presentations to the classic items they desire. Nothing worse than a trendy sushi restaurant that is trying too hard to be different. Raku's attractive bar is comfortable and the ambiance... More

Before hitting up the Anime Fusion across the street I took my daughters and one of their friends here. My daughters love sushi but the friend never had it before. Lunch time, walk in and nearly empty on a Saturday. They had floor seating which I thought was cool but we sat in a high-top. Very extensive menu so take... More

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.
