We ate here for the first time after reading all of the great reviews. Indeed the food was very good. Fresh and tasty. The music they were playing however was awful! I know it seems unimportant but they were playing this offensive rap music that was so terrible. Halfway through our meal my husband and I had such a headache... More

I have eaten at I Love Sushi many times for lunch and supper and have never been disappointed. With a large family (6 or 7), we have had to wait for a table, but was always worth it. The rolls are creative and different than the typical ones seen at most sushi places. I have never had a bad meal... More

I've eaten here many times. Everything is good. But my favorite is the sashimi salad. For about $12 and it's big enough to share.

I Love Sushi consistently has the freshest and most flavorful fish in Ventura. Their seared albacore is unmatched. While I prefer their sushi and sashimi, their creative rolls are delicious as well. I highly recommend this sushi restaurant.

Not bad, but not awesome, decent service. We had the seared tuna salad and the tuna was slightly watery and somewhat flavorless. The sauce that the fried tofu appetizer came in lacked flavor. The sushi rolls themselves were alright and the tuna for the inside out roll was fresh. Will keep looking around for the perfect sushi restaurant in this... More

Only place to eat sushi in Ventura! Best seaweed salad....ever! Yummy and affordable. Don't let the strip mall location fool you! Their lobster is actually langastino, but when you get a $6.95 lobster roll you gotta expect that

I had been wanting to try this place for a long time and finally went there with a friend for dinner. The rolls lived up to the positive reviews and I thought the service was excellent. We sat there for several hours (there were empty tables) and did not feel rushed. A woman who I assume was the owner came... More
