This place is awesome! Food is fantastic, restaurant is lovey and we were really lucky to have Clint as out waiter. He put together a taster menu for our table and it was one of my best meals in a while! My favourite was the Chilean Seabass and the crunchy rice tuna.

Went for lunch last week as we wanted a quick bite to eat before our flight home. We both had a "Bento box", both of which were fine and neatly prepared. The service was quick although the restaurant was quiet (presumably because it was very sunny and warm outside). Although the sushi was good, we have eaten better sushi elsewhere.

This place(we prefer bar seating for dinner) has quickly become our favorite place to dine in Santa Monica. With so many options on the water, Sushi Roku is our spot and we visit at least once a month for some Seabass, warm Kale salad, and jalapeño yellowtail! Perfect for visitors who will get a great bite guaranteed, or for regular... More

We needed a quick lunch but stayed most of the afternoon and nearly missed our plane. This place is so good! Everything is uber-fresh and hyper-tasty. The menu is huge and the options mind-boggling but the waiters can help you make sense of it all.

Arrive: go to the bar, your table isn't ready. (15 mins pass) Your table is ready...it's the empty table by the door, that was empty 15 mins ago when we arrived. No, we don't want to sit in the entrance: Go to bar. (15 mins pass) Your table is ready...it's a nice table but it's now 35 mins after our... More

It has been a wonderful experience, from the general manager to every person in the restaurant, a strongly recommend to stop for dinner or lunch.

We wanted a regular sushi/Japanese restaurant for dinner with kids near our hotel. It fitted the bill, and it was fine. However, for the price, it won't be the most memorable meal you ever had. Miso was meh. Spice seemed to be thrown around randomly. Some 'spicy stuff' was bland. Other stuff blew your head off. My wife had a... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
