Sushi
Sushi Roku combines the finest, freshest fish from pristine waters around the globe with the kind of artistry that can only be provided by a mature sushi chef ensuring superlative traditional sushi, together with a splash of California innovation. Sushi Roku is a pioneer of contemporary sushi, incorporating diverse, non-traditional ingredients from Latin America (e.g. jalapeños) and Europe (e.g. olive oil) into its edible works of art. This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

    We had a terrific time at Sushi Roku. The food was great, but our server was outstanding. He even gave us a delicious dessert when he found out it was my birthday. We recommend with bells!

    We hadn’t been here in a LONG time, my husband and I had our first date here and we both remember having a great time with great food and drinks, albeit pricey (about 10 years ago). But yikes has this place gotten VERY expensive but fell flat on quality, we have fined at many upscale sushi bars and don’t mind paying for A+ sushi, but this was not that, priced very high (presuming quality would be top notch) but it was not, it was very mediocre food. Our server seemed like he couldn’t care less that we were there or if we enjoyed our experience. We wanted some help with recommendations, and was not helpful. We ate uni (excellent), gensai roll (eh), some other mediocre roll, yellowtail chili app (eh), and spicy tuna hand roll (also meh), and a yellowtail hand roll (also meh). When it came time for dessert, we were definitely interested but I was still eating and said not at this moment (cuz I was eating) and then a few minutes later we were brought the check…. (??!!!!???) very disappointed, no acknowledgment of my husband birthday, we ended up having dessert up on Colorado at salt and straw which was the best thing about the night. VERY disappointed with Sushi Roku, won’t be coming back.

    In our opinion, Jiro is the best sushi chef we’ve ever known. He creates culinary magic! Dining with him omakase style is always a treat.

    Very disappointed. We’ve been to Sushi Roku many times for omakase. Omakase is both a testament to the skill of the sushi chef and to the freshness of the fish. We’ve never been disappointed ever. In the past it was always a special experience. Okay Tonight I asked for omakase again and it was very different from what I’ve experienced before. Basically it was chef’s choice of 7 pieces of nigiri sushi. Good but not the omakase I was expecting. In omakase, every piece is prepared just for you at the perfect temperature; it is impolite to let it sit for too long. This time a full plate of nigiri sushi was plopped down in front of each of us. No conversation with the sushi chef and he prepared the sushi such as it was, with his back turned. This was definitely not omakase. I’m unaccustomed to omakase served this way, all at once Super disappointed. Chalk this one up to post-Covid menu adjustments, I guess. I’m not sure I’ll be back for omakase again.

    Food quality for the price was very low. My gf and I eat sushi from fine dining like Nobu to local mom/pop restaurants and the quality from Sushi Roku was definitely sub par. We tried 4 specialty rolls and had some sushi pieces and sadly the only thing that was appetizing was the sushi pieces, which no chef could really ruin. I didn’t want to complain because our server was excellent and I know it wasn’t a representation of his work, so we paid our bill, tipped well, and left. But in all honesty, if you’re going to charge $20+ per roll, please put some effort in standing out from the rest because what we ordered tasted like sushi purchased from a local grocery store.

    It was my husbands birthday, so we wanted to go out for a special family dinner. They sat us right away and acknowledged his birthday which was nice. Service was quite slow to get our sever to make a first appearance, which was a bummer since there were still empty tables inside. We ordered quite a bit, the Hamachi Serrano is amazing! We ordered 2 orders of Hanabi (crispy rice with spicy tuna) and the rice was like hockey pucks. Super disappointing considering the size and price. It was generally very hard to get anyone’s attention for items we needed or to order more. Our server never acknowledged my husband’s birthday until after we paid, and I said something. The food was excellent with the exception noted, but service was really unimpressive especially for how much you spend.

    I always forget how loud it is here... if you are having a meeting better to sit in the patio! The service is always on point even when busy. LOVE the food. Get the Toro Carpaccio and Wagyu Sushi (but order them last, or nothing else will taste as good)!!! The family always orders the Spicy Tuna Hanabi... great flavor. If you want your dishes spaced out and not too many at one time, be sure to ask to phase it a bit, that helps!
