I visited with a few friends for Sunday Brunch. The food was just okay and the service was really bad that day including a waitress that consistently forgot things and blamed us for not getting what we asked for. Weird experience. The positive was that there was a live duo performing with a really great gutsiest guitarist that kept us... More

Although the place looks fantastic, I was not impressed with the food. I would just call it average. And my Bloody Mary was just like it was poured out of a can...

We were visiting La Jolla on business pleasure when our close friend recommended Roppongi for a late lunch. We had multiple small plates between four of us. Every dish has varied spices and ingredients. The crab stack, eggplant tapas, and Kobe Sliders were particularly memorable. The service and atmosphere was outstanding and I would return back multiple times to try... More

Recently, I was at Roppongi for their 'sushi school'. In addition to making/eating the sushi rolls I made, there was a '3 course meal' and sake pairings. The sushi instructor was funny and friendly, the server always kept my sake glass full and the atmosphere was awesome! The sushi school is only offer the first Saturday of each month and... More

The extensive tapa menu offering 1/2 price during Happy Hour brought us back twice during our stay in La Jolla. The diversity of the flavors was impressive. The first night we had an Asian medley - the signature salad and scallops were especially memorable. We returned and had a more Mid Eastern assortment - the new lamb skewers and tahini... More

Im not sure if Happy Hour begins at 3 p.m. A aanywhere else but here, but the Asian-themed food (get the arugula and fig salad with orange dressing or the satay) and cocktails (get anything with pear purée...the bartender is a magician) is discounted and the drinks half price. Attentive service.

We always go to Roppongi when we visit San Diego, and have been there so many times, we've lost count. Every time, the small plates have been excellent. The best time to go is Happy Hour, 3-6pm, when small plates (tapas) are HALF OFF! The variety of choices is amazing. The best dishes are the duck quesadilla, crab stack, scallops,... More

This place is reasonably overpriced like many La Jolla joints. The problem is that even thought this place is lovely on the inside, it just doesn't have a great menu food wise. The food is good, but it's average...especially for the price. The drink menu, on the other hand, is pretty fantastic.

We chose Roppongi by chance and it did not disappoint us. As we were not in the mood for dinner, we had a go on the delicious Tapas and the waiter suggested delicious beer. It's a shame it was too cold for the outdoor area! Next time, maybe!

We had dinner with friends and it was a great atmosphere. The service was great and the food was even better. They were flexible with us on pushing our reservation back since we were running late. Definitely recommend. The sushi, hot rocks and even the short rib plate were excellent. Must not miss dessert is the sundae!!
