We were invited for dinner to Sushi Roku Newport Beach in Fashion Island to celebrate their second anniversary and International Sushi Day. The food was tasty, the presentation was flawless, and the drinks were refreshing and full of flavor. Beyond that, the service was remarkable. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the evening as we savored the contemporary Japanese cuisine Sushi Roku has to offer and sipped on a tasty cocktail or two. This was a perfect spot to enjoy a date night with my husband.
