Very accommodating as we had to miss our Monday reservation due to traffic near downtown LA. Food, ambience and service was outstanding. A gem in Hermosa!

We love Rok Sushi. They have a great sushi bar as well as tables and a bar area. The sushi is terrific and so is their teriyaki and other options. And all the servers are sweet and amazing.

This place has a happy hour menu during the week from 5-7, the menu is limited. There is a regular, more expanded menu that has lots of specialty cut rolls, appetizers, and raw sushi choices (sashimi, nigiri, poke). Overall, not bad. Parking is street metered or pay by space.

Walked in at 9 pm on Saturday night, and from the moment seated, we were constantly asked what we wanted to order. Waiter interrupted conversation several times with my friend. Finally at 9:25 pm, they say they want to close soon. Rushed service and pushed out the door in 25 minutes or less. I never felt they wanted my business; and, also not ideal from a perspective of quality time with my friend. Waiter told me sales is down this time of year, so they want to close early.

If they don't want to entertain customers and/or don't want to be open, maybe they should close --- permanently.

I know that I will never return.

One of my all-time Sushi favorites in Hermosa Beach! Customer service is excellent, consistently. The views are awesome, the food is wonderful and don't forget happy hour!

They use to have a live DJ; not sure if he's there anymore. I highly recommend Rok Sushi for special occasions, dates and live sports.

The appetizers and Saki were good, the sushi was just ok and a bit too fishy tasting for me which usually means poor quality. The service was terrible. I have visited this place a few times and it hasn't got any better so I will not be returning.

The food was fantastic! Try the burrito roll, it is outstanding. My only disappointment was a large screen TV behind me with CNN on. So offensive when trying to enjoy a nice dinner with my daughter. Other than that, great place!

Now has a B rating in the window. We arrived for our Open Table reservation and were told we couldn't be seated for 20 minutes because the health inspector was there. We went elsewhere. So disappointing...this has been our favorite sushi place for a long time...

We'll wait for the A in the window before returning...

My sisters, 2 daughters(3&4) brought my husband for a birthday dinner. Our waiter was so friendly and took very good care of us. Unfortunately I have a bad memory and can't remember his name. We went on a Friday night. The food was great, the restaurant had a great vibe to it and it felt like it catered to many occasions.

Food was well prepared and presented. Our server Ashley was knowledgeable and friendly and made some good recommendations for our table. This is my third time there in the past year, and I've never been disappointed. Also, a great locale for a nice beach walk before or after dinner or to check out the vibrant Hermosa Pier atmosphere.

Always a solid choice, Rok sushi is an upscale sushi and pan Asian restaurant. They are not for the faint of pocketbook and service can be hit and miss, but they have some creative rolls. (If you are a sushi purest, there are better options.) I'd suggest their spicier fare as they do a nice job with peppers here.

Excellent creative sushi. Very good service. Good sports viewing. Extremely loud bar scene at HH. Would rather return when we did not have to sit in bar area. Do want to try other selections on the sushi menu and the black cod was one of the best fish dishes we have ever had.

Only complaint was there were several flies inside that made us not want to eat there. The guests at the table next to us appeared to have the same concern. We just had drinks and one appetizer then decided to walk down the street to another restaurant to eat.

First time here and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and our waitress was terrific! she was very helpful and made sure that we were satisfied on all points during the ordering process, appetizers, meal, drinks and dessert. The quality of the sushi was definitely above average and I really enjoyed the creativity of the different roles the only negative was the calamari appetizer which was too rubbery, otherwise an awesome experience!

Food was good, but service not so much. Waited approximately 30 min for Miso soups and about another 20 min for our actual orders. Noticed several over served (drunk) guests at the bar, 2 of which ended up on the floor before finally being asked to leave. Not the best first impression.

The 4 stars for service are in reflection of the host/hostess. Every time I book a reservation here (3 times total) we have to wait or the host acts like we are an inconvenience. Another thing I observed is that they don't offer the sushi bar as an option when it's available. You have to ask. If I was in the restaurant business trying to turn tables to make money, I would offer all the seating options I had. Our server was awesome, totally forgot his name but he was great and the food is always good so I was continue to come back.
