Having lived in the NYC area for most of my life, I was spoiled by the quality of sushi available in the city. Moving to the desert in recent years has kept me from enjoying exquisite sushi. When my wife & I vacationed in La Jolla this month, we made a point of seeking great sushi. We certainly found it at Sushi on the Rock. We sat at the sushi bar and were treated like royalty by the chef. Each piece and roll was delicately built with the freshest ingredients. We took our time and ordered in waves to experience each dish on its own. We finished with the amazing fried banana dessert. This is a highly recommended spot for all sushi lovers.

I have been to a lot of sushi places, but Sushi on the Rock just became my favorite. We had such an overall awesome experience here during our visit to Southern California. The sushi chefs were very friendly and sociable. The sushi was fresh and beautifully created as if it were art. The restaurant is clean and trendy but not over the top. They also had a great "happy hour" where some sushi and other menu items were reduced price. I wanted to keep eating and didn't want to leave!

This is some of the best sushi I've ever had! We loved the "monkey balls" we had as an appetizer (stuffed mushrooms), and all the sushi we had was fantastic. But the BEST part of the meal had to be the dessert! It was a berry tart with a macadamia nut crust, topped with vanilla ice cream. It sounds simple, but it was the perfect dessert. If you go to Sushi on the Rock you should definitely try it! (Don't go here if you're in a hurry, though, the service was a little slow (although our waitress was really sweet), probably because they were packed.)
