    Wonderful
    Dined on 9/14/2013
    For such a huge place and prime location to have the food, service, drinks be barely passable I am not sure how it is in business. Place was basically empty on a Saturday night at 7 pm. Outside tables had folks having drinks as it is a great spot to people watch. Dark inside, had to ask to have the lights turned on over the table so we could read menu. Server was very nice but completely inattentive hanging out with a group in one of the back room areas. crab cakes were ok, salad had way too much dressing, lobster mac and cheese could have been velvetta, lobster bisque was very thick but not in a good way and sushi was just ok.

    Sushi rock is a solid sushi restaurant but sometimes the quality of sushi is not as high as you would expect for sushi at those prices. But overall I would recommend. Wednesdays are hopping due to half off sushi.

    I always appreciate the freshness of the sushi at Sushi Rock. The sashimi pieces are fantastically proportioned and two or three slices, along with a maki, make for just the right-sized meal. Wine choices are fairly good. The atmosphere is great, especially for a younger crowd (under 40ish). The servers are congenial and knowledgeable. Sushi Rock would be a great start to a night on the town in our quaint but sweet Columbus.

    Even though the restaurant wasn't packed or over crowded We felt very "pushed/ hurried" After completing our meal we were still talking and hanging out when we were abruptly brought our check, as if the waitress wanted us out, I had to track her down to tell her that we weren't finished yet and wanted more drinks. During that next drink we were once again brought a check, again without being asked if we were finished. We had planned on staying for a bit and having a few more rounds but got tired of this so decided to just leave and go somewhere else out of annoyance.

    We had been to Sushi Rock a few other times over a year ago so we decided to get our sushi fix there for a special birthday dinner. When we got our menus it looked nothing like we remembered. After taslking to our server she said that there were some special off the menu items that we could get and we decided on the chef's sashimi sampler. We have had this before and had been quite impressed at the size and quality of the item, alas that is no more. When we received the order it was about half the size as it had been previously and the quality and selection of the fish seemed mediocre at best. Overall it was just a big let down and we will not be going back again.

    Really good sushi. Living in Ohio is not easy for a fish lover and yet, I found the fish to be remarkably fresh and very well prepared. Sushi is simple fare and it takes an artist to make it special - Sushi Rock does that. I went on a Tuesday night so the place was quite empty (we are in CMH after all) but I can imagine that it must be a very exciting and energetic place to be on the right nights. I can't wait to go back. The service from wait staff was outstanding.

    Service was very slow. Drinks were set on the bar and not brought over until 20 minutes later. Appetizers very slow coming out and food was brought around the same time. Waiter seemed flustered while other waiters stood around. Food was good, however.

    the sushi quality was OK, but nothing special, the service was OK but not great, the cocktails were nothing special. It was over-priced for the quality and quantity of the food. We received our appetizer after the sushi came out, and when it came out it was cold.

  • Overpriced, horrible service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/18/2013
    You're greeted by 10 hostesses, since that's totally necessary, all of whom just stand around and stare at you. The waiter was horrible-it took 20 minutes just to get drinks (which he blamed on someone else on the wait staff), he never came back to refill waters or take more drink orders throughout the entire meal. The sushi itself may have been good but it's wrapped in a ridiculous amount of rice so that's pretty much the only thing you can taste. I would never come back here simply because of the service, our waiter was that bad.

    In Columbus on business; hotel staff recommended Sushi Rock; The restaurant is on the corner of two busy downtown streets; parking is limited; use the Valet... Atmosphere is good; staff was pleasant; food was above average, but not the best sushi available... I would come back when in Columbus...

    This is our second visit to Sushi Rock and we continue to be impressed with the quality of the Sashimi and Sushi. I tried the Beef Sushi for the first time and it was excellent. The Calamari is always good. My boyfriend got a Sashimi sampler over rice and seaweed salad that was suggested by the server, but not on the regular menu. He loved it!

    There truly is no way of rating how poor the experience was. We arrived promptly. Seated immedidately. Restaurant was just about empty. We placed our order with our waiter. Sat there with empty drinks until he decided to come by. We had our appetizers. And literally sat there for approximately 50 minutes waiting for either him to come by or for our dinner to come by. Our server hung out at the hostess stand rather than attend to our table. Finally, we got up, asked for the check for what we had up to that point in time, paid the bill and left. It was ridiculous. How in the world could you expect anyone to recommend your service? The service has never been excellent but it has never been so pathetic. They were prompt in getting us the bill!

    Food here was decent minus the accidental plastic wrap in one roll, but the bar crowd really ruined the dinner atmosphere. A very upscale-priced menu with a very low-brow bar clientele. Not worth the crowd, plenty of nicer, lively establishments on the same row.

    I like the location of the restaurant and the ambiance, but the sushi is over rated. It is average quality and the prices are steep, especially for cocktails. A dry martini was $11 and a rum and coke is $8. We would've been better off going to another bar to drink. Personally, my favorite sushi in Columbus is from Diaspora on campus at OSU.
