Popped in for a late lunch. Staff were accommodating and service was quick. However, the sushi was tasteless. Didn't seem at all fresh.

Very nice evening and very good food. It was a Friday night and there was a football game on so while we waited for our table (there was a short wait even though we did have reservation but it was fine, nice bar and we ordered a great bottle of unfiltered cold sake which we took to our table) and...

Nothing bad to say but nothing memorable about this visit. I went for lunch and get a bento box special, which was a good value compared to ordering off the regular menu.

The Salmon Sashimi Carpaccio with Soy Truffle Oil is a must try! It melts in your mouth! I only wish I would have ordered two, as I have been craving it ever since I left. I also ordered the Yellowtail with Diced red & green chiles, which was also delicious. If you are looking for fresh fish, you won't be... More

Dined in the Atrium area. Server would disappear for ever and it was difficult to order and to get her attention. During dinner, we noticed Cock Roaches outside and then realized they could creep under the enclosure and cozied up under our table. We watched in amusement at them scattering on the pillar outside the window, some where huge! When... More

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.

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.
