This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

Service was great and portions were excellent. Two of the rolls were bland. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. Two of the other dishes were good. I’d say one was very tasty. Glad I asked for cucumber rolled on that spicy one. It made the fish pop.

used to love this place.
Sushi was exceptionally dry - although Salmon was good
Forgot our beverage - even after prompting - altho service was exceptionally friendly.
Very very disappointing - especially for the prices that are definitely on the high side.
Sadly - we will not be back

It took ten minutes to get a fork we asked for. Our toddler’s noodles were the last to come out and didn’t come out until we were all almost done with our food. It was not good.

I came here to celebrate my son’s high school graduation. I had made the reservation three weeks in advance, arrived five minutes early, yet had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. I had never eaten here before and mistakenly thought it was a sushi place. It was not. It was a scene to be seen. Crowd was loud and annoying (bridge and tunnel types). The sushi on the menu was average. Worst part was the snootiness of the staff. They were semi-nice, but extremely condescending and sooooo slow. Spent way too much money on sub-par food and service. I’ve lived in Newport Beach for 20 years, and this was one of the low points for me. Disappointing, to say the least. Never again!

Sushi Roku rocks. Best sushi, best food, best drinks and the BEST service anywhere in OC. Food is always fresh and delicious which is very important to us. If you have a sweet tooth their deserts are the best (cotton candy is my favorite to round out a perfect dining experience.

Been wanting to eat at Roku ever since they opened. Food was great. Server was stellar. Lovely decor but the place was dirty!!! The half booths have black fabric which was covered in dust and hair! YUK. Booth dividers were covered in dust as well as table bases Not pleasant dining in filths ate and left quickly instead of a relaxing lunch.

Service was good. Food was good. The only feedback I can offer is the server should Pre bus tables removing soiled plates. We couldn’t throughly enjoy was we were competing for space on the table with empty glasses and plates.

I will return. Food was fast and service was friendly. But at a restaurant like this you would expect a little more.
