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, didn't try calamari. Entrees: Didnt try the pork belly. We ordered the chicken which was excellent. However, their sashimi entree was disappointing: fish didn't taste fresh like before. It was tasteless, didn't melt in your mouth freshness and actually some of the fish tasted off (old or lower quality or worse). I stopped eating it. Within 30 minutes I started having stomach issues and it continued for the rest of the afternoon. Desserts: Sorbet: you get two choices of flavors, it was just ok, mango was too tart. Having a cold dish on a cold day like today wasn't a good idea. The only 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. She saved the day for us. However, we will try other restaurants for Restaurant Week in the future.

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

We come her regularly because we can rely on the delicious food, lively atmosphere (they have a fantastic nightly DJ), and most of all, the exceptional service. Everyone from the hostesses, to the wait staff, to the managers, are incredibly hospitable and attentive. This is definitely one of our favorite spots in OC.

Be prepared for small portions, meant to share, with most of the menu items. House sake served hot was a wonderful accompaniment. Excellent servers; food for the most part was tasty and well-prepared, although the California rolls were disappointing. Loud background music made conversation difficult. A beautiful restaurant set in the upscale Fashion Island. Good place for a date.

We had.a wonderful dinner. The best part was the dessert, I had told the waitress that we were there to celebrate my husbabd and my brother in laws birthday . She showed me the dessert menu and I was able to pick a desert for each individual. . They brought the desserts with sparklers which they put on the table in front of each one of them.
It was very fun and impressive. The presentation of the dessert itself was also very impressive. They put the dessert on a bigger plate on which they had written in chocolate HAPPY BIRTHDAY. It was a spectacular ending to a very good time !!!

Excellent service and food. Celebrated a birthday there. Noted it on reservation. When checking in to restaurant wait staff asked whose birthday was being celebrated. We told them. Then there was no follow up at all by wait staff. Disappointing. I would have paid.

We chose to celebrate our both our daughter's 18th and 20th birthday at Sushi Roku. It is the spot they both chose last year and this year. They made sure to make it a special evening for us all. It was fun, memorable and the food was excellent.

We were initially seated next to a large children's party where the kids were screaming. Why not close the doors to the party room? We moved away to an area where it was possible to hear a conversation. Unfortunately, our server was unable to service us and we were left waiting for a long time. We have eaten at Sushi Roku several times and have enjoyed the food and friendly service. Not sure what the situation was on this occasion, but the experience wasn't up to the usual high quality.

Went with a friend for lunch. Great happy hour food and great service. The outdoor patio is really nice and you can watch people walking by. Perfect with nice weather.

The salmon entree was gorgeous. Perfectly cooked and nicely presented on creme fresh with fennel and mandarins.

Asparagus wrapped in filet was to die for- Yumm.

This is a really special place for us. We often go with my in-laws for special occasions or for special dates. The food is most excellent and the ambiance makes for a very memorable special occasion.

This is also a great spot for entertaining out of town business guests or special occasion team lunches.
