The restaurant is pleasant and the service was good. The food is very expensive and mediocre. Be prepared to spend a lot of money to get full. We had two adults and a nine year old child. It was $200 and my husband was still hungry enough to pick up a couple of tacos on our way home. So definitely not the spot for good sushi/good value for your $.
The food, service, and atmosphere was amazing.
Love the food. Frequent this restaurant. Noise is deafening.. forgot a meal. Only offered 1 dessert because server didn’t put in one of the meals to the kitchen.
It was fab and delicious.
Steak was cold and not grilled. Ordered chicken fried rice and it tasted like some crockpot chicken without any soy sauce or teriyaki. Only good thing about this place was our server.
Consistent sushi restaurant with plenty of vegan options, gluten free soy sauce (Tamari) and knowledgeable staff. Good locals spot.
Food and environment was wonderful. Beautiful location and service was great
Outstanding and our server FABULOUS .
The best girls lunch this year!
We ordered hot saki for the second time and had to wait a long time seems like our waiter had forgotten about it . We canceled our order. It shouldn’t have taken that long . He didn’t even apologize for the saki being late
This place has been my favorite sushi restaurant and the quality and service are absolutely great.
The server we had was extremely rude. My $21 rainbow roll was mediocre. Too overpriced and would not recommend to a friend.
Leo, our server,?was wonderful abd the food outstanding. Love Roku! Consistently great!!!
Best sushi on the west side!
Fabulous dinner and enjoyed being seated next to Howie Mandel!
A cost effective alternative to Nobu. I was very surprised by the quality not only of the food but the flavor
Service was not great. There are plenty of other food spots. I would skip this one.
I go to Sushi Roku in SM atleast once a year on my trips to LA area. Always incredible food always creative and always top notch service
We enjoyed our meal at Sushi Roku and would go again.
Nice Sushi place. We enjoyed the restaurant. It was a bit loud but not disturbing. Waiter was great and food was great. Not the best sushi I have had, by far, but satisfying. I would go again.
The food was delicious and the ambiance was great.
Food and service was fantastic. The food was brought to our table astonishingly quick.
We sat in our favorite indoor patio table and before we could finish ordering food was already coming out. We just love this restaurant it’s one of our favorite sushi restaurants in Southern California. All the food is fresh everything is always perfect.
Service was on point and the sushi is really good.
Fresh fish prepared well. Great cocktail and beer selection. Noisy so conversation can be difficult. Also a bit dim at dinner so the flashlight app is a must.
Food was very good (i had two sushi rolls that were excellent), and for my kids, they were willing to go off the menu, and give them something less spicy. Service was truly outstanding. Cool place with great view of the beach, and all the hustle and bustle. Highly recommend.
Amazing food and amazing service! Some of the best Tuna Poke I've ever eaten. I will for sure be returning next time I'm in Santa Monica!
Expensive but goid
The best sushi in Los Angeles. Friendly staff and very good looking and pretty waiters.
We were seated 1/2 hour late (had a reservation). Appetizer was very good! Sushi was fresh, but average in taste. Waiter tried to rush us through from the moment we sat down. Was put off when we asked for a few minutes to decide on drinks and appetizers. Plates were taken from our table before we were done with them. Once we finished dinner and were sipping the remainder of our cocktails, the staff started to walk by every 2 minutes giving us dirty looks. Do not recommend this place if you'd like to have a nice, relaxing evening.
Sat us down 25 mins past reservation time which they had us secure with a credit card on opentable.
It is a really nice restaurant with great food and a wonderful atmosphere, but make sure to have loads of cash. Portion sizes are small compared to prices. But the quality of the food is great. Also highly recommend as a date spot.
First time at this sushi roku. Great job on appetizers and rolls, but the actual sushi (toro and whole scallops) was very underwhelming relative to price and experiences at other roku locations.
For an ocean front tourist location the sushi and sashimi were pretty straight up. Fresh, good and the other appetizers unique as well
Such a wonderful treat... I recommend going with your wait-person's suggestions. There are quite a bit of "standard" items on the menu you can get anywhere. Don't do it. Get their specialities, especially the yellowtail sashimi!
Decent sashimi and sushi in a fun location near the beach and 3rd Street Promenade.
Birthday dinner was delicious
Excellent, as always.
Great sushi and location. Food is always great and served with perfection.
