This is one of the best kept secrets in Santa Monica. The people working are great and the food is great. You get to order off the robata menu or you can order anything from Sushi Roku. The sea bream and ribs are very very good.

We come from Vancouver so I guess we're very fortunate with great sushi for little money and it's basically impossible to find that anywhere else in North America. But we still went for sushi in Santa Monica and wished we'd never been. The service was terrible, it took forever to get anyone take our order, we did not get our food at the same time and our waters were never refilled. None of us were that hungry so we ordered just a few appies and sushi. It was well over $100 for little mediocre food; had we been normally hungry we would have spent over $200 for the worst sushi we've ever tasted.

We were looking for a sushi place in Santa Monica and we decided to go to Robata Bar (they share the kitchen I guess with Sushi Roku). Their sushi is great, different tastes to what I am used to, but we liked.

You should give a try their signatures sushi!

If you go to a restaurant and the maitre de makes you feel it's inconvenient for him to get you a table you should go somewhere else. Unfortunately we didn't get the hint. Every thing in this restaurant was too much effort for the staff. The foot waiter just dumped the dished in front of you, the waitress had to be asked to offer some help and every thing in this restaurant made you feel unwanted. That said the food was very good and the higher pricepoint could have been matched with outstanding service but wasn't.

We were walking down Santa Monica Boulevard (tourists) and saw the Happy Hour sign, so we thought we'd try it. We were not disappointed!! The half price deals were outstanding! Since we did not know what to order, our waitress, Leslie, and Richard (manager?) gave us suggestions on what to order...it was then that we just asked them to order for us...every dish was better than the next...what a memorable experience! They are to be commended on their service! Wow, every selection was fresh and tasty! We were so impressed with the food, drinks, and service , that we returned the next night...and we do not do that very often! I highly recommend Robata!
