Very friendly staff, great service and a wonderful vegan menu!
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.
Amazing in every way! The service made the night.
Exceptional service. Great food and fun atmosphere..
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.
always great food and great service, good ambience as well.
strongly recommend it
Always amazing food as always.
Our server, Annie, was great! She offered suggestions when asked and was very attentive even though she had many tables to attend to. Food was wonderful, as usual.
Amazing sushi and ambiance.
Great service, delicious food, nice ambiance! Celebrated an anniversary and the staff made the evening a delightful one.
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.
Service great and sushi excellant, the rest of food average. The space is huge, and music is loud--so not great for an evening out to chat with friends and family.
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.
Fun vibe but also enough ambiance for a date. Sometimes it’s awkward if it is too quite and you want to hav conversation. Food was good and server was very nice.
Fresh and delicious sushi, great drinks and great service from Amber! Thank you Amber, bartenders and Sushi Roku!
this place is great but it's pretty expensive. i would probably go back for happy hour !
Excellent food, excellent atmosphere and excellent service. Manager/bartender Moha is a great addition to the staff and Nick rocks the bar!
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.
Everything was really great, would be nice if they had a small kids menu!
VERY VERY SLOW SERVICE IN MIDDLE OF AFTERNOON WITH ONLY ONE WAITRESS! Food that is usually good was awful and not served in the order it should have been
Way overpriced !!
Always a favorite
Exceptional and wonderful customer service. Excellent food preparation.
Good food, a bit pricey. At least they have lunch special that has good value.
We love Sushi Roku in Newport Beach, from the food (the best anywhere!) to the comfortable seating to the welcome way everyone always makes us feel, from the hostess to the servers to the managers, always very friendly and attentive to every detail. We drive quite a distance to go there, but it’s worth it, because the never disappoint! 😊
Choices for the pre fixe lunch during Restaurant Week were good. Presentation was very nice. Sashimi & sushi were OK - not exceptional but the other entree choices were good.
Ambiance/decor very nice which makes it very pleasant for dining and as a meeting place. Service was excellent.
First time there, encouraged to go because it was Restaurant Week. Very impressed with the space, the quality of the food we enjoyed, and with the service. Will definitely be returning.
Very fresh fish for sushi and sashimi. Varied menu. Great menu variety. Lovely atmosphere. Executive Bento box was great. Tempura could have been a tad crispier. Green tea was the best and I’m not a great fan of green tea. Looking forward to my next visit and I plan to sit at the sushi counter.
We eat out often and our experience at Roku ranks in our top 10 all-time best. Our waiter made some great recommendations- YELLOWTAIL DICED CHILES!!!! Wow! Spicy Miso soup! Brussels sprouts Chips, Sashimi, Carnival Cake. Awesome!
Great food. Our server recommended the restaurant week menu since it was our first visit and it was wonderful. Our server was Karen and she really made sure we were happy during our visit. Highly recommend the dining experience here.
Went for Newport Beach Restaurant Week for lunch. We loved it last year so decided to go again. Starters: We loved the shiitake mushrooms salad and the sashimi salad. Entrees: We ordered the chicken which was excellent. However, their sashimi entree was disappointing: fish didn't taste fresh like before. It was tasteless, wasn't melt in your mouth fresh and actually one of the fish tasted off. Desserts: Sorbet: you get two choices of flavors, it was just ok, mango was too tart. The other choice was a Chocolate souffle which was delicious. We should have ordered two of that. Our waitress was WONDERFUL!! Very attentive, clearing dishes right away, giving us hot tea (love their green tea) as needed without having to ask, very pleasant and courteous. All in all food just wasn't as great as last year.
Sorry, very disappointed both of us had tasteless bento boxes.
Hi we love your restraunt we’re glad you have organic options but we’ve been dining here 7 or 8 times service is always very slow
This is my goto place for sushi. It’s consistent. I think it’s a bit overpriced. But I never have had a bad meal.
We love sushi Roku the food is always good and the service is great
This was our first time at sushi roku. We loved it. We sat at the sushi bar. Our chef was excellent. The food was beautifully prepared and he was very friendy. Great overall experience. We’ll be back for sure.
Always great music/vibe, excellent service and sushi. One of our favorites!!!
Thought the ambiance was full of energy, service was spot on and the food was great and VERY CREATIVE !
Celebrating 45th birthday
Very good sushi but stick to that; Chilean bass was small and overwhelmed by too rich a sauce which soaked the mound of delicious onion fries that covered the fish
