When we sat at the sushi bar, I saw that all of the fish had been precut into perfect rectangular pieces and I thought, " uh oh, this doesn't look good." Most of the rolls on the menu contain cream cheese and we were hard pressed to find 3 without that ingredient. We ordered the Tuna Tower and three rolls. The Tower was very good and I wish we had just ordered 2 of those and called it a night. The rolls were tasteless which really speaks to those pre-sliced slabs of fish. Our server was very nice even though she got our drink order wrong twice. But perhaps the first was my fault since I didn't specify hot tea (do you really need to at a sushi restaurant?) and was brought iced tea. I guess, in the end, while In the Raw serves raw fish, it's not really a sushi restaurant.

I absolutely love in the raw. The service is always amazing, and sushi is great. I think the OKC location is under new owners. I have frequented for years, the food has changed. And it's not as clean and upscale as it once was. Still a great place in bricktown to dine.

Was in OKC for business and starving. Surveyed OpenTable for locations with multiple good and informative reviews. When I'm miles from salt water, I generally won't even consider sushi (I'm from Florida so am used to fresh seafood!) But reviews were excellent--and it was walkable from my hotel. What a pleasant surprise on multiple levels! I sat in the bar and the service was attentive and pleasant. Always nice when a server (1) makes recommendations that show she knows the food, but also (2) isn't afraid to steer you away from something via her honest assessment that it's 'not her favorite.' My bartender/server did both--and the resulting 3 rolls were excellent. Plus she makes a mean martini (comped since it was my birthday!) And the rolls were delicious and very 'fish heavy' (vs. 'rice and fillers heavy!')--but also creative and different (which is rare--since I eat a lot of sushi!). Overall, a genuinely pleasant experience, a great value for the $$, and a welcoming and stylish dining room--and I would return any time I'm in OKC. Recommended for locals or business travelers!

Really loved the poke bowl. It was off menu but I saw it in their Twitter account. I asked the waitress if they could make it for me and it was fantastic! I wish it was on the menu! Great nigori and the drink menu is good.
BEST SUSHI IN OKC!
This sushi place is AMAZING! We started off with the Cho Cho Beef which was SUPERB! I could have eaten for my meal! Then we ordered the Thunder Roll and it was absolutely incredible! My new favorite item and place to dine! The waitstaff was great and I loved the atmosphere!
Great Ambiance - Everything Else Mediocre
The fish was stale, which could be forgiven since the restaurant is a thousand miles from the nearest body of water. But it was very thinly sliced. The prices were similar to what I would pay on the East Coast for much less fish, and not very good fish.
They were not falling all over themselves to serve us either.
But it is a cool scene. Lots of people, good music and unique architecture.
We eat here every chance we can. The service is outstanding. We usually make reservations, and sometimes arrive early but are always seated quickly despite being early. If there is something on the lunch menu that they don't serve during dinner they've never told us no. They go out of their way to accommodate whatever it is we ask for. Absolutely love this restaurant, management, and the staff!
Great place, great food!!!! My wife is the sushi expert. She has turned me on to it this past few months and I really enjoy it. We especially liked the spicy cowgirl roll. Guess who picked it out.... ya dumb me ha ha. We spent our honey moon in downtown OKC and enjoyed several lunch and dinner dining experiences. In The Raw was one of the best in Bricktown. Great job.
In the Raw isn't amazing but it's not bad either. Most of the sushi we tried were average (we had the In the Raw and Not Raw specials). The California roll was particularly good. The service wasn't bad. We didn't wait to sit and while it seemed to have a different server every time we needed something the food was out fast and we never ran low on our drinks. The ambiance is awesome. The interior designer did a very good job. There's some beautiful painting and a pretty interesting free standing arch. Overall not bad but not amazing.
I personally thought ITR was nothing extraordinary there was nothing to set its self apart from any other sushi place around town. The only thing I am trying to figure out is was it a sushi restaurant with a bar or a bar that serves sushi? I thought the sushi was very amateur for those people who want to try it but not very experienced with eating it to sum everything up I would say it was a sushi place with training wheels.
