Sushi Roku combines the finest, freshest fish from pristine waters around the globe with the kind of artistry that can only be provided by a mature sushi chef ensuring superlative traditional sushi, together with a splash of California innovation. Sushi Roku is a pioneer of contemporary sushi, incorporating diverse, non-traditional ingredients from Latin America (e.g. jalapeños) and Europe (e.g. olive oil) into its edible works of art. This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

I was initially sad my Umi order had disappeared but the spicy tuna was actually the best I’ve had in a very long time.

Great place for good cocktails and amazing sushi. The menu isn't large but it is FRESH - baked crab MELTS in your mouth. Also gluten free menu is available and was very helpful!

Our names are Scott and Janice. The dining experience was awesome. It started with the hostess, server, and the Manager "Ryan". Ryan approached our table out of the blue and asked us how it was going. Ryan then proceeded to open up the roof to see the sky. The food was outstanding and the dessert was fabulous including our dessert being lit on fire!! It was awesome and will be coming back soon.

Very loud music. Difficult to have conversation at dinner. At times, hard to flag down staff for anything. At the end of our dinner, We were moved to another table to accommodate a larger party. They complimented us with a round of beers.

Service was great and portions were excellent. Two of the rolls were bland. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. Two of the other dishes were good. I’d say one was very tasty. Glad I asked for cucumber rolled on that spicy one. It made the fish pop.

used to love this place.
Sushi was exceptionally dry - although Salmon was good
Forgot our beverage - even after prompting - altho service was exceptionally friendly.
Very very disappointing - especially for the prices that are definitely on the high side.
Sadly - we will not be back

It took ten minutes to get a fork we asked for. Our toddler’s noodles were the last to come out and didn’t come out until we were all almost done with our food. It was not good.

I came here to celebrate my son’s high school graduation. I had made the reservation three weeks in advance, arrived five minutes early, yet had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. I had never eaten here before and mistakenly thought it was a sushi place. It was not. It was a scene to be seen. Crowd was loud and annoying (bridge and tunnel types). The sushi on the menu was average. Worst part was the snootiness of the staff. They were semi-nice, but extremely condescending and sooooo slow. Spent way too much money on sub-par food and service. I’ve lived in Newport Beach for 20 years, and this was one of the low points for me. Disappointing, to say the least. Never again!

Sushi Roku rocks. Best sushi, best food, best drinks and the BEST service anywhere in OC. Food is always fresh and delicious which is very important to us. If you have a sweet tooth their deserts are the best (cotton candy is my favorite to round out a perfect dining experience.
