Wish they had had a larger selection of signature sushi rolls but the ones we ordered were delicious. Atmosphere was very nice even though the red is in a mall.

This was our first time eating here. The food came out extremely fast. I think we were in and out in under an hour. Kinda wanted to hang out and enjoy the place a bit more but we were stuffed and didn’t have anything else to order. The apps were fantastic. Loved the popcorn shrimp in miso sauce, the Brussel sprouts and the seared albacore. We went with the waitresses suggestions for sushi as we wanted to try the popular ones and they were just so so. Kinda bland and the rice was really wet. Drinks were good and the service was excellent. I will come back!

So.... server wonderful and attentive and helpful. Food outrageously good, and expensive. But fish was fresh and tasty. Everytime we go there, I say we could do without the d.j. and that music that is being played. Loud and distracting

This is one of my favorite places to go for happy hour! The food is always very fresh and the ambiance is fun. The manager James does a great job running the restaurant. He is very friendly and very engaged with customers and helping the staff. Dalena is our favorite server! She is prompt, friendly, and very knowledgeable!

Everything thing we’ve tried has been really good. Loved the dumplings we tried this last time. This is the one restaurant I like to try new things because everything is so good. The only negative is it’s tough to have a conversation without yelling across the table. The hostess can be more welcoming too. We almost left when she told us it would be a 30 minute wait even with a reservation. We noticed all the empty tables and sat on the patio right away.

We booked a table for 4 for after going to the movies across the street, and loved the incredible sushi and fun desserts! Make sure to get the garlic Ediname! The Tuna/Toror & Jalapeno sushi roll and Spicy yellowtail roll were outstanding! 8 pieces each and perfect for 4 of us to share. For dessert we actually ordered the S'mores and it came with a little flame to toast the mini marsh mellows! Loved it. The berries in ice cream in crust was awesome too. But mostly, we loved the DJ music from 7:00PM on and made us feel like we were at a hip LA hotspot. And the service is always first class! No kidding. Great date place too! Sushi bar, booth or patio.....all have an excellent ambiance.

We went here for OC Restaurant week to try it for the first time. The food was okay, not great and the service was not okay, slow and inattentive.

It took about 10 minutes to get tea after sitting down and after maybe another 10 minutes we got our kale salads. We finished salads and sat with empty drink glasses for another 10 minutes and 40 minutes after sitting we got our sushi, the second course to this set meal that they planned.

The waitress kept saying she was sorry that this was because of Restaurant Week but not true, why? Because this is 1 pm on a Friday and the restaurant is not full. If they are not prepared for what should be business as usual on a Friday lunch rush hour, what could you expect on any other day.

After are sushi, we waited almost another 30 minutes to get our desert that was part of the price fix meal. They had two choices, a chocolate volcano (looked more like a girlscout cookie) and green tea ice cream tiramisu which after the long wait I was told it might be another 30 minutes to get it so I got the thing that looked like the girlscout cookie in the interest of time.

We entered at 1:09 pm and left at 2:49 pm, not per our plan that day nor would we do it again on another day.

Saturday was our first visit to Sushi Roku and we want to go back to try more items on the menu. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. The menu is unique and it was fun to try different combinations, I was planning on my usual sushi order but once I read the menu I had to venture out to try something new. Menu has your basic Sushi, Poke and Rolls but also so may other interesting dishes. Be sure you have a reservation if you are dining on a Friday or Saturday night.

The food was incredible. Service was great, but some items took a bit too long. Over 20 mins for a piece of sushi that I added last minute. Overall the ambience was very energetic with a live DJ on Friday night. Not cheap, but goes with the territory for good sushi, especially in Newport Beach. Highly recommend.

They have a great happy hour which includes several of their appetizers. This was a great opportunity to order several of them. They are deliciously prepared and full of flavor. I particularly enjoyed their fried shrimp calamari, both had a wonderful asian sauce on them.

The oysters are very small (size of a quarter), but tasty. Nothing out of this world, but good presentation and flavor.

The Uni Udon was underwhelming. The appetizer consisted of fettuccine-like pasta in a cheese sauce resembling a mac-and-cheese sauce, with a small sliver of uni across the top. A complete disappointment.

The Zen S'more additionally was horrendous. The chocolate was too sweet, and so was the matcha green tea blocks. Two bites in, I couldn't stomach any more sugar.

The highlight of the night was the mitsu sushi platter (chef's choice); it was delightful, innovative, and left me hungry for more. If I were to do anything differently with the meal, I would have forgone the two appetizers and dessert, and ordered 3 servings of this dish.
