A bit pricey, but good quality sushi. Get the Sashimi! Nice views of the water from the inside and outdoor patio too


Really great sushi, really expensive, and chart-topping Hollywood venality add up to a net neutral. Wouldn't wait for a table here too long.

Always Busy, Always Expensive 8/14/2005

This is a fine restaurant, but one must realize that they will be paying dearly for scant sizes of uncooked fish. The spicy tuna is excellent, but expect food to take a while before you in fact eat. Might be prudent to purchase an appetizer. Also, you will see a lot of men here who are older than 50 that look like they have taken their "daughters" out for dinner. I hope you catch my drift :-) more

Ok food, poor service 8/12/2005

I've been to Sushi Roku a couple of times and each time I went the service was very poor. I had to wait for my food for quite awhile and once they started bothering me with ID checks when I ordered sake (I am not in my 20s). The food is good, everything we got there was tasty, but the place definitely not worth it. Bunch of stock up yuppies who are willing to pay $$$ for a piece of sushi and willing to take arrogance of waiting staff. Wouldn't go there at all if my dinners were not paid for. more

Fresh, fresh, fresh 8/5/2005

Though a bit pricey, this place always has fantastic, fresh sushi. Perhaps a bit out of vogue now, it's still a solid sushi restaurant with great atmosphere and service. This place is fun with a group or a romantic dinner for two. Be sure to try the sushi roku roll - it's sure to please. The martini's are fantastic as well, but be sure to upgrade on the liquor. more

Owner Message

  • Sushi Roku is located steps away from the Santa Monica Pier, 3rd Street Promenade and walking distance to the beach.

    Our chefs prepare innovative small dishes out of succulent, sliced hunks of raw fish. The scallop dynamite is tender and sweet--one of the best in town--and the rich black cod is a perfect counterbalance to the more delicate sashimi dishes. Try any sashimi appetizer, such as salmon or bonito, with tangy garlic ponzu sauce and jalapeno tempura. We have daily sushi specials that usually include rarer and more expensive Japanese imports such as ishi-tai (black tail snapper), sayori (half beak) and kohada (gizzard shad).


  • In Short
    The Santa Monica branch of this ultra-hip sushi chain offers the same urban-meets-Zen design, but surpasses other outposts with an ocean view from the enclosed patio. Most nights, the bar area buzzes with singles, while the dining area is left to sushi-sharing dates. But raw fish is only half the story here. Appetizers--hot and cold from the garden, sea and farm--demonstrate what this kitchen can do. The list includes tuna spring roll cigars with Asian beurre blanc, soft-shell crab in champagne butter, fresh salmon rolled with daikon, ponzu and caviar, and filet-wrapped asparagus with soy sake. The sushi needs little else than the fresh and expert cut. Delicately mixed spicy tuna served in a hand roll is a must, as is the specials menu, which has introduced such wonders as tempura ahi and avocado-and-tuna sashimi over wonton crisps with creamy mustard.
