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

If you are looking for delicious and creative sushi, this is the place to come. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat and short waits, this is not. I personally think it's worth the wait and has the atmosphere to make up for it if you are hanging out with buddies or your significant other, but it... More

The rolls were poorly done. The fish wasn't fresh. We went as two adults and three kids. The kids' food came out an hour before the rolls did. It took ten minutes and two askings before the kids got utensils for their food. One of the grown ups was diabetic and her blood sugar was dropping while we waited. All... More

We have been here several times and never disappointed. This is our "go to" place for sushi. We went in for just a little afternoon treat and ordered the daily special rolls. The Diablo was the best we have probably ever had. We like to sit at the sushi bar and watch as they work there magic. Everything is, cut,... More

I got ill after eating the sushi here. I was running my first 5K, and I did run it, but not before puking thanks to CA Rolling.

I visited this place years ago before they remodeled and thought it was so-so. It actually smelled a bit like a sewer so I never went back. After I've heard so many people say that they remodeled and it was good so I had to give it another try. All in all I would say it wasn't that bad, but... More

Well first off.. I had heard so much about this restaurant.. Good reviews.. So we decided to try it ourselves. I really wanted to like this place.. But alas.. That was not to come to fruition. We ordered spicy tuna, negahamachi ( yellowtail with scallions) avocado rolls, California rolls and spicy salmon.. The unfortunate part was that NONE of the... More
