Sushi on the Rock is a cute place in downtown La Jolla. They have good variety and even pot stickers and tempura for the kids, but, unfortunately, they do the Krab with a "K" thing and the sushi is only average. While the fish was reasonably fresh, the flavors were only mediocre at best and it seemed that they might... More

Ive eaten here a couple times while on business trips to the area. The food is always good, the service is always great, and the patio is a great location to enjoy a meal.

My boyfriend and I stopped in at this restaurant on our recent vacation to SD/La Jolla after reading some great reviews & perusing the menu to see that they had an extensive selection of specialty rolls. We were there around 7:30 on a Sunday evening and were able to get a seat right away without a reservation, which was nice.... More

Our family of 7 sat outside for lunch. We had a gorgeous view. The sushi was great. My favorite was "The Don". The kids had fried rice, miso soup, and a bento box. Service was great too.

We enjoyed this restaurant, which serves amply-sized portions of California-styled sushi. The edamame was excellent, warm and nicely prepared, which is a real contrast to what we have often found in similar places around the US. The Mexican-influenced spicy sushi and rolls were fun, and although one wonders what a Japanese chef would make of them, we thought they were... More

Another solid place in La Jolla. Outdoor seating and next to another restaurant / bar that had live music when we were there. Was nice hearing live music and eating Sushi outdoors on a beautiful Southern California night.

My wife and I were walking around La Jolla and asked one of the store owners for a sushi recommendation. He suggested Sushi on the Rock so we decided to try it. I can say that the sushi selection was good, the sushi chosen was excellent but after that things go down hill. The service was slow, very slow. With... More

Sushi was fresh and good, nice view but bad service. Our server disappeared more than once, never bothered to check on us for refills and passed by us several times without acknowledging us even after we asked for our check.

We were there with our small kids during happy hour. The creamy miso soup was excellent, never have had anything like it before. So tasty!
