Good, nothing out of the ordinary. Food & service was good.
Poor food for the price.
Overpriced for basic sushi offerings.
The menu selection for sushi not very good and service was terrible
Not worth the price at all
Great sushi ! Good service A special place
Very good food, great service and good prices!
The food was terrible. The menu was small, which we understand, but not like a Japanese Sushi Place. Mainly sweet or spicy stuff. I would call it very Americanized. The service was wonderful. No complaints with that. Too bad.
Pretty good, but overpriced... paying for location, service was good ...
Rude staff, food was “okay” did not feel welcome and too loud for conversation.
We were seated an hour after the reservation time because they were overbooked.
Very much worth the visit, The greeter wasn't as friendly as the waiter, but our waiter was superb and made great recommendations. The view of Santa Monica was amazing too, will be going back soon.
Great time with a long time friend.
Food was great and expensive. Family was still hungry when we left
Fun restaurant with delicious food and attentive wait staff. One of my favorite places to visit when I'm in the Los Angeles/Santa Monica area.
Way too overpriced. A vegetarian roll should not be $22
Good good but nothing special. Ambiance comfortable but a bit tired and outdated.
Very good restaurant , excellent food and service.
Second time we’ve been whilst visiting our daughter and it was as wonderful as the first. Very lively and energetic, great drinks, food and service.
Reading the reviewed in the past. It made u want to go. After having it. You will thinking those comment from others, are those who never has a good sushi before. Never go back.
The value of the Chef’s selection was very poor.
The quality was great but the amount was nothing spectacular.
For the same money I could handpicked items and not need anything else.
I left disappointed and probably won’t return
The food and service were good, but nothing noteworthy.
Great food and great vibe! I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family
The restaurant outside appearance had appeal, Hostesses were Professional and Appearance Appropriate Valentine Menue had a couple of nonmenue items. Great price, and variety. Several different seat arrangements Waitress Friendly Helpful and Staff were always overseeing that everything was satisfactory. For a Major Holiday there was no time limit and never felt rushed. Even though their is a Sushi Roku in Pasadena this Location was worth the drive. Will return
I have taken friends and business associates to SR many times and they are always impressed - makes me look good! Thanks
Food was good. Too much road noise from Ocean Blvd and people were standing outside smoking right next to open window. Loud motorbikes passing by were a big distraction. Not much the restaurant can do but is more of reflection of the area.
Very good and friendly service, delicious food, very comfortable and good ambiance restaurant.
Little too loud
Yes - Sushi Mike's place are Epic!!! Sushi Roku, Boa Steakhouse and others.....wow!!!
Good menu and great flavours. Friendly servers, an all round enjoyable experience.
We were in town for the weekend, staying next door at the Georgian. We were able to get a reservation at Sushi Roku on a Saturday night without any problem, yet the place was very hopping and energetic. Our son, 15 years old, has several allergies, including shellfish and sesame, which turn up often at sushi restaurants. Our waiter could not have been more accommodating in terms of making sure that he was safe in what he ate. Having dealt with this issue for years now, we quickly get a sense when a restaurant either doesn't take allergies seriously or doesn't understand the potential severity. Because of that, our son can be quite nervous when eating at places that have a lot of fish/sesame. He was completely, 100% comfortable, at Sushi Roku. And, it was all due to our waiter. I only wish I could remember his name. The food was fantastic. Service - obviously - was fantastic. Ambiance, was great. Overall, we loved it and would go back anytime we are back up in Santa Monica.
One of the better dinners I have had in a while. Sever Emmy was spectacular, and the food was superior.
We came here for NYE dinner (my date and I), I was excited to celebrate in this place which I used to love. We've been greeted by the hostess, who put us at the table on the outside patio, in the very back. All people next to us were families with little kids. The atmosphere inside was energetic, with balloons out, adults without children, and nice music; unlike inside, the outside patio had no music and only families with kids. I wanted to feel the NYE atmosphere and asked for table inside, which I was told by the hostess will take 30-40 min to get, during which time we had to wait at the bar. We had a party to go after so we sat down at the table on the outside patio. I went to the hostess in about 5 min and asked to re-seat us when something opens up. She refused to do it and said we have to go the bar. She said she will check on the available tables and will let me know what she can do - she never came back. This service made me feel bad, and I didnt enjoy my dinner at all. All I wanted to do is just eat and leave to go somewhere where I felt celebratory spirit. Our waitress was very nice, no complaints about her and only compliments. I will not be back after being treated like this.
Great sushi and service
I love sushi maximum amounts. This was disappointing and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The host was quite rude. The service members were more concerned with turning tables than providing a quality experience. The rolls were average and the avocado was over ripe (there’s no excuse for that in California).
I will say when the server made an honest error, they owned up to it respectfully and made up for the mistake. No harm now foul there.
Everything else about this experience, however, was 100% sub par.
Great! Very conscious about allergies.
Great sushi spot in Santa Monica. Amazing food and great service.
