Hottest Spot in Cleveland on Wednesdays – Great spot to get Sushi/Drinks on Wed. but make sure to get reservations at least a week prior. Smaller sushi is half-off on Wednesdays from 5-9 and it's always packed. Getting a drink at the bar can be tough given the small area. Make sure to have your whole party there or you won't get seated.
It's a great place for people watching, I've seen tons of Browns/Cavs/Indians players there and gorgeous women. The sushi is pretty good, but your mainly paying for the environment which consists of trendy lighting and a good live house DJ. The service is average-poor, but like I said, you're paying for the scene. I recommend it for a good meal or a place to grab a drink with a date on the weekends.
Check It Out! – This was my first experience w/sushi, not planning to enjoy it I LOVED it! The Calamari was AMAZING - best I've ever had. We had the Cali rolls, spicy Cali rolls, & Sake (stick w/the pear if you don't like it strong). Our server was rather snooty and only there for our money, tables were crowded and the place was really loud but I would still go back. Great ambience!! Two couples, appetizer, dinner and drinks $140 w/tip, not too bad. Definitely make reservations.
Amazing experience! – We took friends from Columbus to Sushi Rock before a show at the Playhouse and had an amazing dining experience! The quality and quantity of food were great. The rolls were huge! We order about 10 different things in total and we all agreed that everything was fabulous. The Calimari appetizer was good too. The service was very good as well. The best part? We got out the door for $140 including tip. Where else can you go downtown for $70 a couple for dinner and drinks?
Go for the sushi, not the service – I have to admit that I don't eat sushi, but the presentation was so fantastic, I found myself stuffing my face with sushi.
The place really buzzes with activity and this is the place the hip, young crowd flocks to.
But if you get a server with an accent, you will be in for a some poor service. Ours was down right unfriendly. We only had one drink during the entire meal because she never came back to ask us if we wanted another one. She basically was there to take our order and our money, that was it.
But still go, but go for the sushi and the atmosphere, not the service.
I stand by my review and will not change any wording. I don't know how else to explain my server.
Amazing Sushi, Good service – I eat here 2+ times a week and I've never been disappointed. Quality and freshness of the sushi is always high making for great tasting sushi. Presentation of the rolls is very artistic. Service is usually good, but can fluctuate, especially on Wednesday with Sunami nite(1/2 price maki rolls), which is busy and very crowded. If you want a more relaxed experience, go on another night where you will get more detailed service. I've never had anything of their non-sushi menu, except for the calamari appetizer, which is very good. I recommend Sushi Rock highly and you will too.
Great Ambience, sub-par food – Sushi Rock is a great place to hang out and catch a drink with some friends, the music is great and there are tons of cool people milling around the bar. As far as the food is concereded is it average at best, your best bet for authentic sushi is a few blocks over at Ginza or over on the east side at Otani's.
wednesdays – I've only been to sushi rock on Wednesdays, when they have the half-priced menu available. On those days, reservations must be made far in advance - only to wait about a half hour at the door to get in. The entire place is loud and tables are rather close. But the food is a GREAT value at half price. Service on these days, as would be expected, is lacking due to the huge crowds. Overall, I still go almost every Wednesday because I like the loud music, fun atmosphere, and great value.
Wednesday 1/2 price sushi – We went to Sushi Rock on a Wednesday for "cheap" sushi. Very crowded, took a while to be seated despite a reservation. Took over 1 hr to get our food. And despite excellent reviews from friends, we didn't find the food that great. It's average. Certainly not a traditional Japanese restaurant, not even green tea on the menu. If you want funky western experience with "white sushi", this is the place to go. Music way too loud for a peaceful palate experience. Maybe the sushi tastes better on a non-half price night.
The tofu sushi rocks! It is probably the best sushi I have ever had. The service stinks!
Sushi Rock rocks! – Suchi Rock sports a very cosmopolitan look and a classy yet casual wait-staff that is prompt and not -in-your-face. The food is prepared simply yet very elegently. They let thier food speak for itself. If you so chose, you could have your meal at the bar or served to you at a table.
I met my brother there for lunch. It took no time at all to get our food. We split a platter that boasted a variety of tastes. I prefered the Tuna and Salmon myself. If you are as clumsy as I am, they do have silverware. You are not forced to fiddle with chopsticks.
