Sushi Roku - Santa Monica
RobataBar, located behind Sushi Roku features robatayaki style skewers, tapas style sashimi dishes, and sushi.
Sushi rolllls weren’t good
They were pretty but tasted bad
It was 300 dollars for lousy food
Delicious food and excellent service
Once we were seated, the service was excellent and the food was very, very good. We loved the rolls, brussel sprout chips and sashimi. Friendly and efficient staff!
Bad food bad service
absolutely horrible experience and a place like sushi roku with your reputation should be ashamed. I am a CEO and live in SoCal and made the trip up to Santa Monica from South OC to wine/dine 3 client executives from Woodland Hills. Service from the time I walked in was horrible, laughable at that. I get it, I really do, labor shortage, entitlement, etc, but the waitress should be fired. Asked her to just prepare a nice appetizer sampler platter (translated to waitress I am with clients, get an immediate impact on the tab and your tip). She brought 1 plate of tuna sashimi that one of us could have finished. Pitiful. Brought 1 entree as a partial and had to 15 minutes later ask if the rest was coming, ordered the most expensive item Sushi Platter and that did not arrive. Ordered drinks on multiple occasions that did not arrive. I cringed at giving a $50 tip on a $400 tab. I hate giving a 10-11% tip, I really do, from both sides...a)she did not deserve ANY tip, and b) I am a 30% tipper for good to great service. Weill be very very hard to return here. Burned. Looks like my next client meeting in Santa Monica is back to MEAT restaurant one street over. Rick Michel, CEO Transtreme 214.868.4371
THE FOOD WAS FABULOUS AND BETTER THAN ANY RESTAURANT IN CA. THE SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL BY JASON THE FOOD SERVER. HOWEVER, I BELIEVE THE MANAGER NEEDS TRAINING IN THE LAW CONCERNING ACCOMMODATION OF SERVICE CANINE. HE THREATENED US WITH NOT SERVING US AND MAKING US LEAVE THE RESTAURANT WITHOUT EATING BECAUSE HE WOULD LOSE A TABLE FOR TWO BY ACCOMMODATING A SERVICE ANIMAL. HE YELLED AT MY WIFE CAUSING HERE TO TAKE ADDITIONAL MEDICATION. SHE HAS CRONIC UNCONTROLLED DIABETES. DESPITE HIM THE FOOD AND SERVICE WERE INCREDIBLE
My rating would have been a 5, but the waitress recommended a $120 bottle of Sake and then charged us $135 without saying anything. When I noticed it, she said they were out of the cheaper date/version (that she recommended), but that she would reduce the price "if I wanted her to". It just kind of put a bad taste on an otherwise enjoyable experience. Food was very good.
I would recommend Sushi Roku for the food, but be careful and look at the bill.
The poke bowl was great.
Everything else was OK.
Flies were annoying.
Area is interesting
Nicole the manager and Leo our server we’re just incredible always loved the food just a great experience!
Will go back again.
Good patio, service and food was tasty 👍
Excellent. Followed covid policy. Felt safe. They have plexiglass in between. The food was excellent. Service was superb. Drinks were amazing.
The sushi was extremely not fresh. I eat here very frequently, but the food wasn’t edible
My entire party got sick afterwards
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.
