I thoroughly enjoyed the sushi. The bartender recommended the Tornado Roll, but add cream cheese. Good call and something I would recommend. The soft shell crab hand roll was also really good. I am sure I'll be back.

They have a great wide selection of sushi and the place is quite large. There are teppan tables also and the place is usually quite busy. It is located on the 2nd level of Kaleidoscope off Crown Valley and the 5 freeway across from Mission Viejo Mall. I have been here several times but always did the teppan because I... More

I have been here several times for both the sushi and the teppan and I have never been disappointed. The Sexy Mother sushi roll is my favorite and they also do a build your own sushi bowl too that is delicious. For the teppan, you really cannot go wrong with anything you get, and there will be left overs for... More

They have a great variety and our server Lauren was amazing. She was on top of everything we needed. Our party of 8 had a reservation for 6 and I totally understand why they want everyone in your party present. But after we had a complete party wet waited another 15 min and I went to the desk to ask... More

Bought a Groupon (I think I paid $69) for $100 that included dinner Monday thru Wednesday. Called them on MLK to ask if we could use the Groupon and was told yes. Rep on phone then made reservation for us. We showed up on time and were told we couldn't use Groupon since it was considered a holiday. When I... More

Eater BEWARE! Our New Year's Eve experience was a joke. After reserving a table for 20 a month ago AND receiving an email confirmation for our reservation, we were turned away on site for dinner, on New Year's Eve. Better yet, the customer service by the on-site Manager, Mike Konscher (?), was pathetic! Showing him the text directly was no... More

We came early on a Friday and we were able to find a table for six of us while people were still stuck in traffic. The menu had something for everyone with seafood, chicken or steak choices. The sushi was very good, the Galaxy was the favorite. Bar had good choices and the Teppan Grills were huge.

We had a long wait before being seated for dinner. Be prepared for more wait at the teppan table. It takes a while to get your order placed and then of course wait for it to be prepared in front of you. Our waitress was friendly and the food was fine. Ambience is nice and loud. It's expensive to dine... More

Orange County is home to many traditional, hole in the wall sushi joints that get the job done. Riptide is not one of those places. If you are looking for a sushi experience unlike any other in Mission Viejo, look no further than Riptide Rockin' Sushi and Teppan Grills. The energy is high with family and friends. The menu, an award winning expression that perfectly combines a hint of tradition with modern creativity. The sakes bomb nightly, the teppans sizzle with heat and flavor, and the sushi knocks your socks off. Simply put, Riptide is not your mom's sushi joint, but it's definitely yours.
