Exciting, progressive culinary concepts and a relaxing, resort-style ambience has combined to Aloha Sushi Lounge as a dining must in San Diego area. One mere glance at Aloha Sushi Lounge's menu, featuring Asian Fusion dusted with Hawaiian influences, you will see that you are in for an incredible meal. Additionally, Aloha Sushi Lounge features traditional sushi offerings while fully embracing the "new wave" philosophy of sushi, which utilized non-traditional ingredients and techniques to produce sushi specialties that come bursting with an exciting new assortment of taste sensations. Aloha Lounge's tropical decor, highlighted by spacious cabana seating in their outdoor patio, not only lends the perfect complement to their delectable cuisine, it also provides the ideal backdrop to indulge in one of their many fine sakes, wines and sojus. Located in La Jolla and situated mere blocks from the legendary coastline, Aloha Sushi provides a local escape that is deliciously refreshing.

This is a interesting little place at the corner of Pearl Street and La Jolla Boulevard. It is more of a local spot then a tourist destination. It is La Jolla, but not in what one would consider the 'tourist' section. Close by there are Mexican, Italian, Chinese and Indian eateries.......all... read more

This is a interesting little place at the corner of Pearl Street and La Jolla Boulevard. It is more of a local spot then a tourist destination. It is La Jolla, but not in what one would consider the 'tourist' section. Close by there are Mexican, Italian, Chinese and Indian eateries.......all small, and all local.

Sushi is not the freshest, service is mediocre, and they add imitation crab as a filler. The last time I was there, I ordered a spicy scallop handroll, it came with more imitation crab than the scallops. When I told them I didn't want the imitation crab, they told me that's how they make it and it would cost more... More

We had sushi here which was average. They do have Hawaiian influence like spam items. They have a lot of outside space and have a series of pavillion that you can eat in around the main building.

I had lunch here with my 3 boys after a walk along the seaside in La Jolla. It was about a 10 minute walk up from the seashore. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual. There were a lot of choices on the menu, from stir fries to burgers to sushi and sashimi. There was something to suit each of us.... More

Decent rolls, tempura, seared ahi. We ordered too many things and our server's head exploded, oh well we had enough to eat. Wished for more variety of sauces. Good value for La Jolla.

Came here on a Living Social Deal and there was a wait to get seated even though we had an opentable reservation. Place definitely needs some renovation. Seating areas were shabby and accent pillows in the booth areas were very faded with food stains on them. Although service was quicker than we anticipated, the quality of the food was nothing...

I've always had a great experience here. Sitting outside is relaxing and I love the atmosphere, but inside is fun too. The service isn't stellar, but I've never been in a rush when going so it's never bothered me. I just plan to have a nice long laid back dinner with good company and enjoy the food when it comes....

Sushi did not taste good, too fishy. Some of the rolls sounded a lot better on the menu than they tasted when served. We sat on the patio and service was slow.

Been here a couple of times. It's always good and fresh. Great atmosphere. A little expensive. I will still return!
