Good food, but bad service

The food is good, basic sushi, but the service was very slow. First we waited over 45 minutes for a table when we were told 20 minutes, while there were multiple open tables. Our waitress took our order, and then we never saw her again, other servers brought our order. Also, after waiting for... read more

I've eaten at California Rollin a few times while living in Rochester. Wegmans sushi is often better flavored than California Rollin. A few of the flavors are good, but the wait staff always take a while to seat you and serve you. I tried their miso soup last time I was there and almost nothing but broth. I think I... More

Food was good, drinks were good, but service so bad, I can't recommend this place. why is service bad? -we were handed a checklist to place our order with no explanation. -we... More

They need to step up the service at this place. The food is always amazing but you never get what you ask for. Drinks sit empty unless you beg and then your lucky if they bring you the right one ... Bud light lime and Labatts do not sound the same if you are paying attention. Fork sure if you... More

My husband and I went here for our Valentine's day date, as it was a place we used to enjoy when we lived in Rochester a few years back. We went for an early dinner (a little past four) to avoid any rush. It wasn't busy, but nor was it dead, so the place was staffed. We got water right... More

while it has been over a year since we have dined at this establishment, (and we used to go alot) a friend gave us a groupon worth $30. after our bill (which was about $100) we went to cash out - and then we remembered why we haven't been there in sooo long. They do not like to honor the... More

This used to be a favorite restaurant of our family, though it fell out of favor over the past year or so due to uninspired sushi and tanking quality of service. We visited with friends who returned to Rochester for a weekend and had good old memories of the place, hoping that giving another chance to this past favorite may... More

This place prides itself on a unique fusion of classic sushi and new age ingrediants. I can accept a place trying to be different but thier ingrediants don't make sense. Bacon? Almond paste? Dijon mustard? This is just not for me. However, they do still have the classic roles. The first time I went, I ordered basic rolls that you... More

Let me be clear - I love this place and I eat there ALL the time (1 or more times per month) and I've been there during lunch and dinner. Dinner can get busy especially on Fridays and on All You Can Eat Sushi Night, they also don't take reservations, so if you have a large party or don't mind... More

There were 5 of us hungry business travelers that night and we all got the sushi. Not one of us could finish the amount of food we were brought. Excellent sushi, both the cooked and the raw; service was good but it took almost an hour for our food (granted we had a large order!) and while they don't take... More
