Diner Reviews
  • "I made a reservation for 8:00 on Valentine's day. My fiancé and I arrived at 8:00 sharp and waited 15 minutes in line just to see the hostess. When we got up there, she ranoff for a couple of minutes. When she returned she asked what time our reservation was, seemingly uninterested in the response. Then she mumbled some other words and whisked us off to a table. We sat, and waited another couple of minutes for her to find one bent beat up menu that I guess my fiancé and I were supposed to share. So my fiancé and I wait for our server to come around to order some drinks.... By 8:40 we still hadn't even been offered so much as a glass of water. We had a movie to catch at 945, so we dipped. I don't even think they noticed we had left."

  • "We were late starting looking for dinner on Valentine's Day. We were not sure about this place ... since every other place was booked after 5:00 and before 8:30. Also there were mixed reviews about the service. We booked the 7 PM seating requesting a cabana. We were So pleasantly surprised at the entire experience. The cabana seating was great. The wait staff was just fantastic. Even on Valentine's Day the service was very pleasant and prompt. People are too hard on waiters and waitresses when they are just trying to serve you as best as they can. The filet was the best I've had since K.C. over 30 years ago. Great cut and cooked to perfection! Best of all my wife .. and her sister .. were very pleased .. We will be back soon!!!"

  • "My reservation was at 7pm but since I'm not from the la jolla area I didn't realize the traffic and was about 10 mins late. On my way to my reservation I noticed I was running late so I called aloha sushi to let them know I'll be a little late and they said "it's okay". When I arrived, the waitress told me it would be a 30 minute wait so she will put my name down. What's the point of a reservation? Also it's valentines day, it's not like I could just go to another restaurant, everywhere else is busy that's why people make reservations. When I asked her if it will be more then 30 minutes she said "I probably shouldn't come back". After escalating the issue to the manager they sat us in the cold outside with a weak heater."

  • "I was very excited for my husband and I to be able to go out to dinner for Valentine's day. I had high hopes for Aloha Sushi lounge. It looked beautiful online and I thought it would be the perfect place for a romantic dinner. I was very wrong! The hostess was extremely flustered and seemed like she didn't know what was going on. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated ( even with a reservation) and an additional 30 minutes at the table and not one person had approached us or acknowledged us. By this time it was 9pm and we were starving so we left to find somewhere else to go. Three other tables around us also left. It was the worst restaurant experience and valentines day I've ever had. I was disappointed and will never go there again."

  • "Had a reservation for 2 on Friday night at 8PM. About 20 people standing in line, hostess nowhere to be seen. Restaurant is half empty and staff super thin (only saw 2 waiters) and super slow moving. The hostess finally shows up after about 5 minutes of standing around and I ask her if every one in line has reservations and she seemed to have no clue as to what was going on and seemed super confused. Restaurant overbook reservations, I would not recommend this place to anyone."

  • "It was Valentine's Day, and we had a party of 12, but we were seen once by a waitress in 40 minutes and did not have drinks, water or the appetizers that we had ordered. Given the fact that we didn't see our waitress for the 25 minutes that we were waiting for our drinks, we figured it was a lost cause and left. Hopefully, this is not the norm there, but I would not go to this restaurant. I am not a typical bad reviewer - I have never walked out of a restaurant before and have never written a bad review, but this was the worst dining experience I can remember."

  • "The restaurant seemed a little dirty and very very quiet. They have a great patio area though. Sadly it was too cold but I would have definately sat out there, weather permitting. The food was alright nothing too crazy"

  • "Great place to dine at! First time dinning here for restaurant week and love it. Will come back to sit in one of the cabanas. The rolls was very good and the Sashimi was the freashest that I had in a long time. The waitress was very friendly and helpfull. Will come back for sure!"

  • "This place is nice, this was our second time there. The first time (about 6 months ago), we were there on a date, and we were the only ones there. Service was great (and personal) but it was kind of weird sitting in an empty restaurant. Last week was our second time there, we sat at the bar, because no other seat was available other than the ones farthest in the corner, and it smelled like fish everywhere. The sushi chefs were accommodating and service was good on their end, but the waitress was below average. We had to search for her to order things, she sat us down and our food came before she brought us utensils, we had to ask for napkins, and brought the check without a pen, so we had to track her down for that."

  • "Sushi didn't seem very fresh and the vegetable tempura was too heavily battered. The wings were a little undercooked and the waitress took forever to get us the check."

  • "There was a large party and the restaurant should have been closed. We were treated as if we were an inconvenience. Servers were distracted and appeared to not know their own menu or how to write down who ordered a beer and who ordered saki. There is not enough space in this review area to describe the numerous failings."

  • "Excellent choices for rolls, sashimi and plates. Happen to catch Happy Hour which had great discounts of drinks and appetizers. I sat at the sushi bar and was given one on one service from the chef, and table service from the lovely hostess. Will absolutely return here again. GREAT value for large rolls, and large hot sake!"

  • "If you want the nightclub experience along with sushi then this is a place for you. Girls wear short booty shorts service takes forever even when it's not busy and food portions are not very big. Sushi quality and presentation was par. We ordered oyster shooters in two separate occasions during our meal each time took over 15 minutes. There was only a total of six customers in the restaurant (that's including my wife and I )with two sushi chefs ....don't understand why everything took so long. Definitely not be recommending or coming back ...had high hopes. Especially for being in La Jolla."
