We always enjoy having lunch and dinner at Roku. The waiters are always very nice and polite. The food is always good and fresh! This is our favorite spot for sure and now it’s even nicer with the outdoor seating. Highly recommend for casual dining and for a date.

We arrived earlier than our reservation and they had no problem seating us. Obviously due to the pandemic, the seating was outside in the middle of the courtyard. There were beautiful lights strung up and heating lamps almost at every pair of tables.
Services was quick and very good. At the end of dinner, the waiter remembered that it was our Anniversary and brought us a special dessert. That was extremely surprising as usually I notice the notes section of my reservations aren’t paid much attention to.
This was a nice touch and overall, we had a very nice evening and will come again.

It was cold and windy enough that I decided to do take out instead of eating at the restaurant. Some kind of windbreak may help protect customers from the elements.

The service is the best at this restaurant; attentive and extremely friendly. The sushi is the freshest and the rest is just tasty! We enjoy ordering the large saki, which is fun and served in a beautiful carafe. They have lots of tables outside in the main courtyard with nice lighting and a fun atmosphere.

It was a really nice experience the waiters were really really nice I had never been there before and I had a couple questions about the menu and the waiter explained everything to me and made sure he double checked my order because I am a picky eater but I’m trying fish and he recommended the very best I loved it

Nice outdoor seating. The restaurant observed social distancing guidelines well. Food was expensive and mediocre tasting. I’ve had better sushi elsewhere. But good choice if one is looking for safe places during pandemic.

It was great to get back to Sushi Roku. This is a go-to place for us. I think they need a little more work on how they parse the service in the patio. They don't quite have it down and we waited for about a half an hour after being seated for anything other than water. At least they got that right! The serving staff seemed a little confused as to what needed to go where - and the serving staff seemed a little confused as to what tables they had and had not visited. The meal was great as usual, but it was a little disconcerting to spend over 2 hours on a single order, single-course meal. I still love it there! They just need to get their chops down on this "new normal"

The outside dining experience is always our choice because we can then take our dog, so this location has long been a favorite of ours, even before the pandemic as they provide seating outside close to the main area where we can enjoy happy hour. While my wife loves sushi and is adventurous in trying various selections, while I stick with the California roll. The vegetable tempura is vey good. The asparagus wrapped with thin strips of steak are very tasty. We love the peppers as well, but sometimes some may be too spicy for my wife. The service was very efficient and friendly, as usual.

While I appreciate being able to eat out in a pandemic and the service was great, the sushi was only ok. For the price I want better quality sushi.

A customer for over 15 years and only recently have I been disappointed with the freshness of the fish. I’ve noticed For example, the cod, that is usually buttery and soft, when I recently ordered it was a bit dry and not soft to the palate. Not too thrill with the spicy tuna either. Guess things will improve but I’m glad you are open.

Been coming to sushi Roku for many many years and love the service we get with Eddie the waiter. We were finishing up our drinks and getting ready to leave and the assistant manager came over and rudely asked to leave because she needed the table

The service and the ambience was great! Great little date night place. The place is expensive for the portion and the quality. I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt due to COVID and the new regulations.

The outside dining was much better than expected. Service was great. Food is always amazing, but seems prices went up which they were already expensive. It was nice to get out! And not sit outside on street like others have to do.

As always, the sashimi and the rolls (especially the Katana) were delicious. A bit disappointed with the Cod in miso sauce. The cod didn’t taste fresh, a bit dry.
