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!!

Great food! Waitress was soooo nice however we had to wait extended amounts of time to place a drink order, food order, and wait for the check at the end of the night. Food came out fast from the kitchen but service was incredibly slow. Still enjoyed the night but would have been nice to not have to flag down available waiters.

We love sitting on their patio to enjoy a relaxing meal during Happy hour after shopping. The food, service and hot green tea (cold day) was excellent as always! Our dining experience would have been another perfect experience but unfortunately there was a large group of 12 including 4 little kids. I would say parents were in their late 40s. There was a boy around 4 who was screaming as he counted to 10 several times. Literally screaming at the top of his lungs. And what do the adults around him do? Not tell him to use his "inside" voice but instead praised him for knowing how to count! Then another child started crying loudly as well. Parents just sat there. Unbelievable! They didn't care the least that there were other diners around them. We usually like to share a dessert to end our meal but just wanted to leave. Parents, restaurants are not an extension of your living room or a playground. We're paying customers too. Please be mindful of that. Totally ruined the end of a perfect day!

I was there on valentine's day and was surprised to see the TVs on with sports playing like it was some cheap frat boy sports bar. We ordered several plates and they all came 15 minutes apart from each other. Since we were sharing plates, it was awkward. This experience reinforced why I don't celebrate valentine's day. And I'm never going to go back to this place unless I'm wanting a casual meal while watching TV.

Overall the experience with Sushi Roku was outstanding and typically is. Unfortunately, the hostess was extremely rude and non accommodating. Thankfully, management resolved the issue quickly and professionally. Dining experience was outstanding and have some of the best service in Orange County.
