I'm always a little hesitant when I order sushi, but this was fresh and delicious. I had egg rolls and sashimi. The egg rolls were good, but the sashimi was incredible!

Sushi on the Rock is a cute place in downtown La Jolla. They have good variety and even pot stickers and tempura for the kids, but, unfortunately, they do the Krab with a "K" thing and the sushi is only average. While the fish was reasonably fresh, the flavors were only mediocre at best and it seemed that they might... More

Ive eaten here a couple times while on business trips to the area. The food is always good, the service is always great, and the patio is a great location to enjoy a meal.

My boyfriend and I stopped in at this restaurant on our recent vacation to SD/La Jolla after reading some great reviews & perusing the menu to see that they had an extensive selection of specialty rolls. We were there around 7:30 on a Sunday evening and were able to get a seat right away without a reservation, which was nice.... More

Our family of 7 sat outside for lunch. We had a gorgeous view. The sushi was great. My favorite was "The Don". The kids had fried rice, miso soup, and a bento box. Service was great too.

We enjoyed this restaurant, which serves amply-sized portions of California-styled sushi. The edamame was excellent, warm and nicely prepared, which is a real contrast to what we have often found in similar places around the US. The Mexican-influenced spicy sushi and rolls were fun, and although one wonders what a Japanese chef would make of them, we thought they were... More

Another solid place in La Jolla. Outdoor seating and next to another restaurant / bar that had live music when we were there. Was nice hearing live music and eating Sushi outdoors on a beautiful Southern California night.
