Sushi Roku - Newport Beach
Top notch sushi, great atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff.
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!
What a fabulous restaurant!!! Tried several dishes. Each were excellent. Looking forward to making this our “go to” Sushi restaurant.
Great food. Great place for work meeting of anything else.
Good atmosphere great food and great service little pricey but worth it
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!
Incredible food. Incredible drinks. Great service. High energy, great vibes all the way around.
Everything was good except for the avocado rice cake appetizer - they were stale!
Always a favorite!!!
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.
Always one of my favorite places. The food and service are consistently fantastic and I eat here frequently.
The food, service and ambiance is exceptional!
Great service from our waitress. Kitchen was backed up to when we ordered more it took too long and we cancel. Good food, good service(from the waitress) slow kitchen.
Out go to date night love the da taff the mangers are amazing and the Dj is awesome
Good service nice ambiance
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!
Loved this restaurant! Excellent atmosphere and food. Highly recommend.
Excellent as usual! Food, service, atmosphere, location, all a TEN! Looking forward to going back again! 🤗
They have wonderful lunch options and a menu! Highly recommend for lunch.
Service was sporadic and not attentive. Expected better from a high end sushi place
Service was terrible. Waited for a reserved table and then the wait time for the food was even worse.
Awesome! Would definitely come back !
The BEST sushi restaurant hands down! Love it in Newport and Scottsdale! Never disappoints. Everything is outstanding!
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!!
Great service and loved the music with the DJ.
My wife and I enjoyed dinner at the bar, the bar team was outstanding.
Excellent food. At 7:00pm Noise level was too high between live music and family with kids. Tables too close to each other
Great food and fun for the whole family. It was a little noisey because it was Friday night and there was a DJ. Our family had a good get together!
Our server was terrific!
Great food & experience
Excellent food, decor and staff. I loved every second.
