Hum, really within special on the food side. Was expecting more from omakase, sushi was very mediocre. Atmosphere is nice.

Best food in town

Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.
The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.
The appetizers are delicious.
Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.
Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived

Revamped and much improved

I always thought Sushi Roku was a ""see and be seen"" kind of place, and never found the food very memorable.

My mind was changed when I recently used the Blackboard Eats special and had a 4 course prix fixe menu dinner here. It was amazing. Every bite was delectable. Tuna three ways appetizer, salmon carpaccio with shaved truffles, their Sushi Ume dinner, and the Molten chocolate cake for dessert, plus a bottle of sake. I don't know what that dinner would normally cost, but it was a brilliant move because I loved every morsel and would absolutely go back.

Great food! Great people!

Went to this restaurant based on the recommendation of the concierge at Sofitel hotel. We were so pleased! The food was excellent and the service was even better. The seaweed salad was a large portion, they were completely willing to make me a custom roll, and the sushi was extremely fresh and reasonably priced. The ambiance is nice and not stuffy. Very comfortable.

This is a great find.

Way Overpriced

A tiny tofu miso soup costs $4. The quality of foods does not worth its price. Enough said.

Best Sushi/Ambience mix in LA!

I lived in LA for nearly 9 years and ate at plenty of sushi restaurants, both high and low end. This may be on the pricier side, but it's well worth the cost. The Hanabi appetizer (soft tuna on crispy rice) is amazing and the plethora of flavorful and creative rolls make for a taste bud's dream.

There is a cool, usually Hollywood-ish crowd at this location, but it's not snooty like some of the other Hollywood places. The service is very friendly and you get your food on the quicker side, regardless of how big the crowd is on a given night.

There are also plenty of great drinks and Japanese beers and sake, and the ambiance and settings make for an awesome experience.

This is a great place to go on a date, hang out with friends before a night of partying, or even bring your family.

I have been here more times than I can remember and have NEVER been disappointed. It's always the opposite - I'm constantly impressed with the high level of quality here in all respects.

Good for the people watching and atmosphere.

I love sushi. My bf mentioned we were interested in the ""Hanabi"" Spicy Tuna appetizer, which I guess meant that the manager should just go ahead and order it for us. We ordered our original appetizer and I really liked that one. Just can't remember it cause it was good. Of course, my bf liked the one the manager ordered for us. It was a bit too heavy for me. We ordered the Kobe Beef and Lamb appetizers, which were excellent. Food was good, just a little overpriced.

great experience all around

My husband and I had dinner here recently. The service was friendly and fast and the sushi was fresh and delicious. Try the scallop appetizer. I love the setting and atmosphere.

Bad service, overpriced and small portions

My boyfriend and I are big sushi fans and went to Sushi Roku after hearing all of the good reviews. Granted, we walked in without a reservation, but were told it would only be a 20 minute wait for a table. We waited at the bar until about 30 minutes had passed. We asked the hostess about our table and she said it would be another 40 minute wait. After sensing our irritation, she offered to let us sit at the bar for our meal. We agreed because it was getting busy and all we wanted to do was eat. The bar was cramped and there was no leg room, the bartender even took our orders. We ordered their Chef's special sushi compilation and other dishes. The dishes were all overpriced for the small amount of food on the plate. Although the food was good, after spending over $80 on dinner, we were both still hungry when we left. The bartender was very nice to us, but someone needs to tell the hostesses to better accommodate customers or at least be honest with them. There are many other trendy sushi places in L.A. that have good customer service and better food that is priced reasonably.

Best sushi in the area

This is the best sushi I've had in this area. The rolls are really unique and delicious! The bar is also very hip, fun, and sheeck (sp?).

Good Food and Atmosphere

I went to Roku last night for a casual dinner with one of my friends. I went in without reservations but was seated promptly. The hostress was nice and greeted us warmly. I had the Premium Toro, which was fanastic, and their Filet appetizer was very good as well. Overall the sushi was very good, fresh and well presented. Their sake list was a bit limited but I'm not much of sake fan anyway.

I enjoyed the staff, food, presentation and service and I would very much recommended this place to anyone.

Great for Lunch!

Went there for lunch and got amazing service. The sake was served in Bamboo and had bamboo sake glasses. The decor was beautiful. The food was even better. If you are into yellow tail, I'd go with their ""Signature Dish"".

Best of the Best

I go out to eat all the time, and I love sushi. With all the new sushi bars and restaurants that open every day (it seems) I honestly have never had it better than Sushi Roku. I've been a semi-regular for years and it seems to be getting better and better. Other places I go are always missing something. Roku has the best food, great sake, cool atmosphere, and lately, the best-friendly service in the city.

I just read the last review and it's spot on. The manager has obvious control of the staff, and loves to chat it up. I introduced myself a couple of months ago because he seemed like a new face. Since then I am greeted by him within minutes of getting there. I'm not a high roller or anything like that, but I get served like one.

Best overall experience of anywhere in LA *****
