    While honeymooning in Arizona, my wife and I came across a trendy restaurant named Rock Lobster! The Teppan Tables were full, so we decided to try their sushi. We were glad we did! The food was great and Kelsey, our waitress, was fantastic! Must eat there if you like sushi!

    This is the first time my family has been here for teppan cooking and it was great. Normally teppan cooking is better for the show than for the food, but the chefs made great food and put on a great show. I am very happy about the transformation of Rock Lobster. The sushi is still incredible too.

    Turned out to be a super good experience. We researched some of the favorites from other reviews and stuck with them. Poppin was our favorite. Would likely come again. We had a groupon but found that you can get just as good of deals if you hit Happy Hour specials (3-6:30pm)

    First time going to The Sushi Room; Went with a couple of friends. It has great food and you can hear each other talk. Cozy with indoor and outdoor seating. I will be going again. The only thing was they were out of the beer I wanted, other than that it's a great find.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/17/2014
    1st night of Restaurant Week, first visit here. Disappointed when 1st and 2nd choice "special cocktail" unavailable - our 4-some tried four others, none were good. Well over half of my Red Dragon was left at the table, tasted like cherry nyquil straight. Despite assuring that we could order all 4 courses and they'd be brought with appropriate timing, we ended up with starter, appetizer, and main on the table at same time. Salad was ok, not great. Miso soup reported as "good". Sunshine and Tataki rolls got good reviews, Katzu Chicken entree was extremely generous. Tempura apple slices very good, Tempura ice cream ok. $40 per couple including drink isn't bad but would have spent far less at happy hour. If ever return, that's the plan

    Mothers Day here offered a free sushi roll and mimosa for moms. As a mom, I appreciated that! Sushi here is generally very good. Our only complaint was that the sangria my husband ordered was pretty bad. We have had sangria there before and this tasted like a really "off" recipe. Our server did not offer to comp or replace the drink when we commented on the poor quality. Other than that, it was good food (and also they have an all day happy hour on Sundays) and the atmosphere was quieter than usual as it was a Sunday.

    I made reservations online for dinner for Valantines Day. We orderd the special $39 dinner for two. We were in the middle of our salid when the appetizer and main course were served. The tables were crampt, the food and service were ok. Its an ok place to go have dinner, but I won't go out of my way to eat there again...

    I'm a newbie to the realm of sashimi, but the freshness of the ingredients here has me eager to go back for more. And maybe even try somethings more exotic. Sitting at the sushi bar we were able to engage in conversations with the chefs, and the rest of the wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The menu is a little pricey, but given the quality, was well worth it.

    My friends and I ordered the New Years Special menu. It came with an appetizer soup 2 glasses of wine, and 2 speciality rolls the sushi rolls were amazing but our soup came to us luke warm & our bacon wrapped scallops were ice cold, the table behind us ordered after us & received their food ahead of us. Other then that everything was well done our waitress was spunky & had an amazing spirit about her considering she was working New Years Eve.

    We had high hopes for this place, good location. However we were disappointed in the food, very bland.the service was okay, not good not bad. Uniforms or similar attire would help. One waiter was wearing a baseball hat. How about white shirt and tie"

  • Yuppy Sushi Room
    Tduston
    Dined on 9/27/2013
    I have had Sushi from a number of places in a number of different cities. This sushi place was standard yuppy fare. It did not blow me away and was definitely overpriced for what we received. We drove out to this place hoping that it would have good quality fish and delicious rolls. However, they rely way too much on Krab salad to make a good impression. This is the perfect place for sushi lovers who don't like raw fish, which is truly saying something. Some of their roles were just conceptually flawed. They have a surf and turf roll where they put cover a crunch roll with steak. It sounds good until they throw pungent fried onions on top, which was just wrong. I do have to admit that that the fried ika was absolutely delicious.

    My first time here. Read some mixed reviews about service but was completely impressed with the attention we received. Sushi was pretty good, too! Not the very best I've had, but certainly above average!

    We generally enjoy eating here. But this particular night the music was very loud. I couldn't finish eating quick enough to leave. If you have to shout at your waitress to order, that should be a indication to the staff that the music is too loud.

    The music was awesome!! Loved the vibe. The crowd eclectic ~ lots of tables with families, others with couples. The sushi was yummy and filling and generous pour on a glass of wine. Great service too. If you are on a date or with friends, hit the Living Room lounge next door! Super fun bar to see and be seen ~ with open patio, good music and comfy seating everywhere.

    The service was great. They always made sure we had everything we needed, they brought the food out in a great amount of time. One thing though that would be nice to change is when they bring the food they don't stick it in front of use when we're trying to eat something else. Other than that everything was great.
