    I've been to Sushi Roku once before about a year ago. Both times the food and service were absolutely excellent. Not a bad thing on the menu not a single complaint about the menu. The prices were in line with what I was expecting. So why the long wait in between? The 8 MILLION Vanilla scented candles. I understand wanting candles. I understand ambience. You can achieve the same effect with unscented candles. I'm allergic to a lot of artificial scents and walking into Sushi Roku is like walking into a cloud of "NOOOOooooooo". Both trips despite everything else being pleasant I got to leave with a headache and itching. Really not fun. This would be my go to sushi place if I was able to walk in and not be consumed by the vanilla clouds.

    Unfortunately we didn't love this location. We have dined at the Pasadena, CA location and experienced a much different menu; portion and taste wise. This was by no means a reflection of our server(s) as they are equally fantastic and attentive. Our server went so far as to explain that their menu at this location is a bit al-dente to cater to patrons. We are Californians used to California sushi so maybe we're spoiled, we just didn't feel it was what we were used to from them. That being said, the atmosphere is great, decor is exceptional, and its attached to the W hotel.

    First time here at Sushi Roku. Service started out a little slow and unsure. I think the waiter was fairly new maybe. He seemed to lack the confidence at the start. But stepped up and as he got busy and really was very good. The food was VERY good, quality and portions were spot on. Menu has lots to offer and I will be back to try new items.

    It was our anniversary, so we went to Sushi Roku because we were craving sushi and a new restaurant. When we first arrived, I was a little disappointed as the restaurant was located in an area with less than spectacular views. However, the restaurant interior is very nice and well designed. Low lighting with candles, very pretty. The food was very good and the fish was extremely fresh. Each dish was artistically plated. The service was very good.

    This sushi restaurant is great and being connected to the W hotel, is also pretty convenient. I liked that the sushi menu has an abundance of new and unique choices from the typical sushi restaurants. I came with a group of girls and the service was great. The large booths can easily accomodate 7-8 people and we enjoyed sitting together in the booth. Our server was attentive, kept our waters filled, and also offered second rounds of drinks. He also took photos of us when we asked and was very willing and friendly about it. Great restaurant! Can't wait to go back!

She was 100% right on! As far sushi restaurants go, this restaurant was only moderately priced and provided great value for the quality of the food that they serve.

    Sushi Roku was fabulous! This was among the best sushi and sashimi I've ever had! The restaurant's space was lovely---very open and modern. The service was very good. I do have to say, though,that this restaurant is more expensive than other sushi restaurants we have dined at. I guess the saying is true: "You get what you pay for." I will certainly return!
