Sushi were excellent, but the service takes too long dues to short staff.

I had to wait 40 min since I did not make a reservation. The waitress was very nice and answer some of the questions I have about certain items on the menu. Thanks goodness I ordered fried calamari for an appetizer because I had to wait at least 30 min for the sushi rolls. The restaurant did not... read more

Dinner was good, although packed and we had to wait. I asked if the wait was normal and yes it is. Normal and no additional wait staff? They really need a hook in the bathroom for a purse or sweater. Also, VERY cold in the restaurant ALL the time so bring a sweater.

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 our check, I finally had to... 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
