This is my favorite sushi place in Rochester. So fresh, offering a huge variety of sushi rolls, and other amazing options.

Maria is EXCELLENT! She is by far the best and accommodating sushi chef in the city.The wait staff was lacking this time. Had to even ask for water fill up TWICE! Not pleased with the service from the wait staff which is why the poor rating.

Horrible service. They essentially ignored us for twenty minutes. This is after they found out that we had bought a groupon to try their establishment. Don't sell groupon ' s if you are going to treat potential regular customers like crap. Very unprofessional. We left after 25 minutes with no one stopping at our table. They kept walking by our...

California Rollin’ is a national chain sushi restaurant located in the Village Gate center. It specializes in -- wait for it – sushi ! Even the walls are tastefully decorated in an undersea theme. The menu has lots of seafood and veggies wrapped in sticky rice. I stumbled in for dinner in because the burger place and the Mexican place... More

I visited California Rollin today for lunch. My friend and I had a Groupon (worth $30). Typically a Groupon of this value will cover or nearly cover the lunch. I was wrong... All the specials or lunch combos are excluded if you use a Groupon at this restaurant. So the bill for 6 rolls (tuna, Philly, smoke salmon, avocado and... More

This is our go to place for birthdays and our anniversary. We like to try the specials because we try different things than we would normally order. Monday we had kind of a ditzy waitress would couldn't seem to get that we needed utensils for 4 and not 2--but usually the service is better!

The food here is good that's not my complaint. The service here is the worst. We have been coming here for years and as of late their service has been awful. We have been waiting 45 minutes and they have sat people who came in after us( they don't take reservations). Whoever is running this place needs to hire additional... More

I do love sushi at California Rollin' but the service at this location hasn't been the greatest during the times I have been there. Being a former server, I am more apathetic than most about wait staff but the timing of food coming out here seems to be slower whether it is those making the sushi or serving. The food,... More

Ended up here for a quick lunch and only stayed because we were crunched for time. The restaurant itself while clean has a sort of a dingy feel to it. The service was decent, but I knew at first glance of the menu that this wasn't going to be enjoyable. WAY too much fried food on the menu and way... More

Was so excited to revisit after at least seven years..in town for a swim meet..was unbelievable disappointed..think ownership has changed...rolls barely had any fish in them, lots of rice...ordered wasabi Shumai..not sure why it was served with a PILE of rice..sauce was very vinegar tasting. Not one thing on the menu that isn't sushi so go with people that are... More
