We love Sushi Roku, won’t eat sushi anywhere else because we are spoiled by the freshness, flavors, and quantities, not to mention always superb service. Everyone is friendly and genuinely glad you’re there, they really aim to please. Their shisito peppers in oyster sauce are delish, and the way they serve their oysters just doesn’t compare to any place else! And their Brussel Sprouts are delicately fried and very tasty! Can’t wait to go back!

We truly enjoyed dinner at Sushi Roku last night! Our server—Rebecca W—was engaging with our toddler and 8-year old daughters. She made our evening! When we visit Newport Beach in the future we will be back. Highly recommend and if you go ask for Rebecca!!

Love everything here as the food, the service, and the ambience are all great. Everything we’ve tried has been delicious and very fresh and we’ve tried almost every appetizer and several fish dishes. We love it so much we’ve gone several times during this trip.

If there was a way to give this restaurant 10 stars, I would. The server was AMAZING. I am taking a break from drinking and she worked with the bartender to make me the most delicious ginger mojito that was ever crafted. She also was thoughtful in her suggestions for dinner when we told her what we were interested in. Great service, delicious food, beautiful ambience.

Even though we had an open table reservation, there was confusion at the front desk. It appeared they had given our table way. Food was pretty average for sushi. Service was decent. I won’t be a return —overall.. very average.

We loved it and had a great server, Albert! We sat on the patio with our mini poodle who is a gem at restaurants. We tried about 8 items from the miso eggplant, veggie tempura, special sushi, California sushi, popcorn shrimp sushi, and more. We were stuffed and it was all delicious. The green tea is truly macha tea which is delicious!

I always love to visit, specially for a date dinner or happy hour. Roku is not your traditional sushi restaurant. It has a modern decor and vibe, including a DJ playing background music on Fridays and Saturdays. My recommendations for the menu are the Tuna carpaccio with truffle oil as an appetizer, matcha mule and white lotus roll.

We went to try the Wagyu promotion. I chose “Flight of Flight” which was 3 Wagyu pieces matched up with 3 Japanese spirits. The menu did not specify what these were so I asked the server. She listed the 3 spirits as Japanese Whisky, Yamazaki, Hibiki and Suntory. So I ordered. What was brought out were none of the 3 named Whisky, so I declined it. I don’t appreciate Bait and Switch.

In the meantime the food came out which I did not touch because I wanted the issue to be resolved before eating anything. Big mistake. It was clear resolution of this was not a first priority. I waited and waited until I got so hungry I ended up eating the now cold dishes. Price adjustment offered was mere $25 off the full price. Whatever, by this time I was beyond caring.

The manager tried too little too late to salvage this but frankly I was not interested by this time for any apologies.

It’s too bad. I dined at Sushi Roku many times before and I enjoyed to food. But at the price point there are better options now that I know the service staff is not inclined to resolve problems as a first priority. Anyone can give good service when things go well. It’s when things don’t go as planned that we see their true selves. Sushi Roku showed me that they don’t care about their customers.

I’ve been disappointed last two times we have been in the restaurant gone downhill. There been a lot of turnover in management and servers. The worst part is the quality of food is gone From great too bad!

Great atmosphere but the sashimi was not as fresh as I expected. Other dishes were good but the lobster noodles were way too sweet. And it would have been nice if they had offered fresh wasabi. We happened to get on the last dish we ordered, but would have been nice if they had offered it with the sashimi. Waygu sashimi was amazing!!
