visited for a business lunch.
service was impeccable and so was the food.
Had the kingfish jalapeño, sashimi tacos, tuna ceviche, braised david blackmore’s wagyu brisket and the miso-cream scallops.
All dishes were cooked perfectly, personally the scallops were my favorite.

I've been to sake at the rocks half a dozen times previously but when I went last week, we were so rushed. We ordered 8 dishes including dessert and all 8 came out in 45 min. Then the waitress gives us the bill without us asking for it. We were in and out in less than an hour and it was our wedding anniversary and they knew that. We booked 3 weeks in advance. And at $215 for some food and one cocktail, I expected much better service. I left them written feedback that night but no one even took note. Very disappointing

Awesome, pant popping food, paralleled with fantastic service. Every item off the menu is a taste explosion. Highly recommend the classics menu and the dragon desert was an experience. A touch pricey but worth the money.

First of all, make a reservation to avoid waiting. Now this place makes some really awesome sushi! Side plates were delish! Food comes out quickly and randomly. So just go with the flow!
