We arrived around 5:30 on a Friday. The restaurant and bar were not too busy, but we were told there was a 25-30 min wait for a table. OK - we got a drink at the bar. We were finally seated just after 6pm. Our server was pleasant, but non-existent after we ordered. Over an hour later we will didn't... More

Horrible service, I knew this was a suboptimal place the minute I saw the menu had a disclosure stating to be prepared to wait for 30-60 minutes. How is that even ok ? Nonetheless, I agreed to check them out because my daughter said they had more cooked sushi options as she is now expecting her first baby and she... More

WORST restaurant experience ever in my life. The restaurant was not very busy at all, though they only had 2 sushi chefs working so I can appreciate it being a little slow. The waitress was horrible. She took at least 15 min just to bring our drinks out and take our order and then never checked in on us again... More

Landed here at 9:00 pm...they close at 10:00 pm. Hostess showed zero emotion. Never cracked a smile. Server 1 was peppy but never checked on us. As a matter of fact, she dropped off our food at 9:45 pm - note the 45 minute wait in an empty restaurant - and then said HAVE A GOOD NIGHT. Huh? Did that... More

Losto fish for two is a perfect choice! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable to the point where they understand our needs. Thank you for the shelf in the restroom.

I used to love California Rollin' but my last two or three experiences have not been good ones. The service is very inattentive. They warn patrons right on the menu to expect a 30-60 minute wait for the food, which is really unacceptable . . . especially when there are less than half a dozen people in the whole place....

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
