We got the boat to share -- good sashimi, tempura and teriyaki! Service was pretty quick -- soup was out very quickly.

I came for lunch for the first time with a friend last week. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service was. Our female server was friendly and efficient. The edamame was warm and tasty and the miso soup was served hot and flavorful. Most sushi restaurants that I've been to always serve lukewarm miso soup, which... More

Here for dinner and a birthday party. The sushi was very good and the service good as well. We ordered eight rolls and two appetizers for 6 adults and two kids and had plenty to eat. The highlight was when they did their happy birthday song, lights out, music on and everyone in the packed restaurant singing along. Very fun... More

We go to Love Boat about 3 times a month, the food has always been consistently good. It is always visually appetizing. The Love boat is a great value as you get a little bit of everything. The 2-3 person one will easily feed three people.

I love sushi and there is plenty of choice here although different to what we get in the UK so I didn't understand all of it. I also found it somewhat expensive for the amount you got. I was concerned that the fish at times didn't feel like it was being kept appropriately chilled either. Overall though a nice restaurant... More

Love Boat Sushi in Oceanside offers a mixed bag of experiences. Popular with locals, it can be very busy (often with noisy birthday parties), I am not sure that I fully understand the popularity. First to the good: The food is of good quality but not exceptional. Service is good and so are the sushi chefs. The interior unfortunately looks... More

Went on a Friday night to try out this restaurant. Very busy but worth our wait. Small place and cozy. seating is limited and there are seats by where the cook are busy making the dishes. Were given complimentary edamame and drinks taken. Waitress was extremely helpful in giving suggestions for our first encounter. We ordered the Playboy and Geisha... More

Girls nite out!! So I decided I'd take my sister in law, niece and friend out for sushi. The food is so good which is why it's sooooo crowded, BUT, the girl who was doing the seating was a bit sour. If I am going somewhere to spend my money DO NOT act like I'm bothering you when I'm asking... More
