If this restaurant were located in any other town, in a more "average" location, this place would not be well-reviewed. The only thing it has going for it is its location. Of course a (relatively) seaside restaurant located in La Jolla can pull together some okay sushi rolls, but there is nothing to write home about here.

Also, staff was less than helpful, starting with a hostess that seemed bent on telling us we couldn't bring our collapsible stroller into the restaurant. Next was the waitress that didn't know what was on the drink or food menus, and that unenthusiastically told us "no, we don't have any specials here." She also informed me - after paying and getting my credit card back - "I can take that at any time." (I say this, because this is just unpolished and strange for an expensive restaurant)

Food was good and the server was a sweetheart. The patio is great for people watching and the fish is fresh.

We were hungry, in La Jolla, and looking for sushi when we spotted Sushi on the Rock. We had a table on the outside terrace with a view of downtown La Jolla and the ocean a few blocks away. The waitress was excellent and made a great suggestion of the chef's choice, an option that wasn't on the menu. This really highlighted the different fish, great variety and the quality was first rate. We had pot stickers for an appetizer and they were light and delicate and delicious. The price was very reasonable for sushi, the view was fabulous and the service was beyond excellent.

The sushi is very good, the view on the patio is wonderful on a sunny day. Always a good place to go.
