Sushi restaurants are rated on the basis of cuisine and ambiance, Riptide does great in the ambiance category - can't be beat. Cuisine is another matter. Management comes across as the 'cheaper' alternative. Mission Viejo and Laguna Niguel are definitely worth more than 'cheap'. Riptide loses in the search for 'good' sushi to other smaller establishments such as Dana Kai... More

We had a large family gathering here, and at first they had us set up at one of the hibachis. We felt it was too spread out, and not conducive for conversation. It was also really loud! They offered us a long table outside, and we took it. Service was super friendly and efficient, portions were huge, and the food... More

The sushi was excellent! I tried things new to me and all were very good. I would highly recommend looking at the sushi menu and not just ordering from the hibachi grill. Our group did both and everyone was stuffed. The portions are large. The staff was very friendly and helpful with our questions on what to try.

We greatly enjoyed the sushi bar. The servers were great and made delicious sushi. The drinks are also delicious. The sushi bar was not very crowded but the seated/teppan area was so I do recommend a reservation if coming with a larger group.

Good food. I had to keep going back cuz my family likes the food. Bad service three times in a row. Talked to the manager 3 times in a row. Told the staff I expected better. Had to go to the bar to get water for the table. Left dirty dishes on the table after dropping off new dishes. Dang.... More

My family loves the teppanyaki for family dinners & celebrations. We often go with friends as well. Pros: excellent food, good show, fun atmosphere. Cons: can get loud and changes to a more "club" atmosphere in the evening, prices are a little high, and they don't serve bean sprouts with the teppanyaki. There is also a large sushi bar (although... More

We arrived at the restaurant 1 hour before our movie at the theater in the same plaza. We were seated within 5 mins in the main dining area, it would be another 15 mins before anyone came to our table and took our drink order! The waitress was nice and did a good job, but had too many tables for... More

There is a reason there is "no contact" us option on their website because if there was their inbox would be full with complaints. The management here is horrible and will do nothing to accommodate their customers or make a bad situation right. We came here for my birthday and had a $25 gift certificate. There were no restriction on... More

I love this place, the servers and the food are wonderful. A friend told me about Riptides Sunday Brunch. I went and told my wife this is going to be a Sunday tradition. We went back the following Sunday and behold NO BRUNCH.... Bring it back!!!!!
