Nice fresh poke that's great for lunch. Very quick, very easy, and overall a nice option for anyone especially the health conscious.

This is a good poke ace. Nice and clean and a good selection of poke and toppings. Also they offer bowls and pokeburritos as well as mochi. It was a good amount of food and a great place to get food while driving thru the pass from inland empire to San Diego.

I love this place. The food is awesome. I go about 2 to 3 times a month.

The food looked good. I didn't eat. Clean environment and customer service was great.

First time here staff is super friendly and explain in detail the menu and all the ingredients and how to order...I loved my bowl...Thank You

The portions seem big at first, but then you realize that it's just a lot of rice and the actual scoops of the protein are very small. The toppings were not very varied, the sauces to put on on the poke were not that tasty, and they didn't allow us to use the coupon that they had sent us. It's ok, we were giving this lace a try, we went back to our usual place.

So sad to hear that they are no longer Poke N Salad and are now Lucky Poke. Mostly new staff, Prices are about $2 more per bowl. Portions are not as enticing. And toppings are moved around. Such a sad day! Will be my last. Why did Soho Ramen have to sell?

New owners, food is still pretty good. I usually get super excited about the wasabi sauce they had but they don't have it anymore. That's what put the icing on the cake.

I've been coming here regularly for a little over a year now. The taste of the ingredients is phenomenal and the taste of their salmon surpasses other poke places by far. Their wasabi dressing is also bomb. But progressively it seems to be smaller and smaller amounts they give you. I would frequent this place minimum 3 times a week and sometimes 5 times a week. That's how good it taste. Some of the employees know my face and even my order. But a few weeks ago my friend & I came together and ordered the exact same thing. Large salad & we had two different people make our salads. The guy who made mine gave me the smallest serving of every single ingredient I'd ever received. I finished the salad in 10 minutes, normally it takes me at least 20, sometimes longer. My friend got about 2.5 more the amount of protein I was given along with every other ingredient she asked for and obviously took her much longer to eat hers. I think the girl was new who made hers and did give her an abnormally large salad compared to the norm, but I think the guy who made mine possibly got mad at his coworker and maybe tried to make an example out of my order? I'm not kidding it was laughable the amount he gave me and me and my friend couldn't help but hysterically laugh the entire time about the considerable difference. We payed the same exact price for two drastically different amounts of food. I probably should of said something but I'm chronically nice and never speak up about things I should speak up about, this being one of those times. But I do think he was wrong to knowingly give me such a tiny amount compared to my friend, even if he was trying to teach her a lesson. Unfortunately that experience put a very bad taste in my mouth (metaphorically) and as much as I love this place, I won't be returning. I still continued coming here after that happened but it seems every time I go I get sad with the serving size and I'm done making myself sad over a meal lol. It sucks because I do eat it so often but probably a blessing in disguise because it'll save me on average about $150 a month & my chances of mercury poisoning will be cut in half because that was a genuine concern of mine considering how much I ate this stuff. This review is just setting my decision in stone. I know my decision to not return probably won't affect their business but I do wonder if I'm the only person to notice this progression of stinginess. Sad riddance poke n salad, I'll miss ya.

The food was simple and delicious, but impatient and unknowledgeable staff made ordering uncomfortable. Traditionally, poke would be served with a bit more fish and slightly more pungent flavor, but this place gets the job done. Also, if more of the ingredients were made in-house I would've given a 4th star despite being rushed through our ordering process.

First timer. Went there on a Sunday late afternoon and had the large bowl and double salmon and seared tuna. The female employee was very patient and accommodating. She let me know she had a special combination which I jumped on. Very very pleased. Keep up the good work you guys!

One word.. Awesome.. so fresh and great staff, highly recommend this small quaint eatery.

I will always be a fan of this place! However, for the past three years I've been coming here today was just a bad day. I ordered ahead of time so I could pick it up after work. I ordered two large bowls with rice and the salads/dressings on the side, extra crab meat, and avocado. When I came to pick up my food, the cashier rung up my food for $40 dollars. That seemed odd, I usually only pay about 20+ for two large poke bowls. He proceeded to say, I'll print out a receipt for you to show you proof. I said, okay.. then as soon as he swiped my card he noticed that he had charged me for 3 bowls. It only takes a few seconds to double check the prices before you charge the payment. That irritated me a bit, but he did refund it back, apologize, and charged the correct payment. When I got home, the food was ALMOST perfect. For the salads, I asked for them on the side specifically so that it would not mix with the rice and the dressings to make them soggy. They still added the dressing in both salads. I asked for raspberry vinaigrette and sesame, they put sesame in both. Anyways, I hope that they are a little more careful with payments!

First time , I got grub hub delivery , I was very disappointed in the lack of toppings I i received on my salad , I'm basically eating mixed Greens with 2 proteins , barley any of My toppings I picked, I also shed the extra dollar for crab meat and it's basically half a spooon size . I with all the different places like this in area I won't be returning or ordering

First time having a poke bowl and I absolutely loved the flavors ?

Alexis S.

I love this place, always super tasty and fresh! I usually come mid day on my lunch break and everyone working is friendly and makes my stuff right. But tonight I went in after work. It was 10 minutes before they closed, but I was just grabbing my stuff to go. They already had the chairs up which is fine, but the guy totally rushed me out and forgot sauce on top of my bowl and also threw some stuff on that I didn't ask for because he was too busy trying to hurry me out. Apparently you should come here at least 30 minutes before they close because after that, They act like they're already closed.

Edward L.

Some very good flavor of the fish and were large portion size. Entirely worth the 10 dollars per bowl

Chris

Nice little place. Perfect for getting a bite during a lunch break. The employees are so nice and always in a good mood and truly want to prepare the food to your liking. Poke salad bowls are like sushi but more satisfying and less filling. Definately worth a visit! ?

Joy J.

This place never disappoints! I've had both their regular and large bowls and they are filling! They aren't exactly bowls like you can get in Hawaii, but they come pretty damn close and the prices are decent. They also offer a military discount with ID. It's a small joint, but enough room to enjoy your food and maybe some dessert. I haven't had their macarons yet, but they look delish and probably taste similar to those at Manna Korean BBQ. Service is always good with the employees greeting you when you walk in which is nice. I tip them every time because they deserve it, even on to go orders. Love that it's always clean inside, too. They are pretty good at cleaning up the tables once people up and leave. Wish they were closer or would open up another location north of the 215. For now, I'll keep coming back to satisfy my poké cravings.

The quality and service of this establishment has declined over thr years.

I've tried a few poke places around town (there are so many now!), and this is my favorite. With my work schedule, I usually end up here near closing, especially with their winter hours. (There's a sign on the door that says they close at 8pm, not 9 like Google says). It's been somewhat busy the last few times I've been there, but the staff has always been really friendly and helpful despite the line. I try a new combination every time I visit, and the people that work there are always really patient with my indecision, haha. A lot of the time they've actually helped me make a decision, based on what goes good together. The ingredients are good quality, and it's in a pretty good location. Not too hard to find especially if you know your way around Temecula. It's comparable in price to other poke places I've been to in the area, even with the extra charge for avocado, extra protein, etc. I'm giving them 4 stars, only because their bowls are too small for the amount of food they give, so it can get a little messy when I try to mix everything.

Highly recommend Poke and Salad! Not only is their food good, their customer service is phenomenal!

I've never been disappointed with the food here and have been coming for a couple years. The upcharge for the avocado is a little much but that's life. I've never found the food anything less than yummy and fresh with a lot of variety available. However, now 2 fridays in a row I've came in late-ish. The first time was 845 pm. Closed, ok cool. I've worked food service maybe it was slow and they wanted to cut out early. Second time was 830 pm and they were already completely closed. On a friday night. Super annoyed because if I had known. I would have went to my more favorite poke place that's NEVER let me down. I'm the type of person who probably wont return because of this. Theres lots of other options

Employee was in a hurry to get me out of there. Very rude.

Ahmed Blancarte

Always great, tasty, and the staff is friendly.

Andres C.

Tuna wasn't fresh. We couldn't finish it cuz it was gross. The girls up front weren't very nice. The bowls they serve in are too small so when you scoop up food it falls out the sides. The jalapeno poppers weren't terrible but nothing special. Don't think I'll be back.

My wife and I have been coming to Poke and Salad since they opened and I must say this place has gone down hill. First the selection is bare minimum with no improvements in the entire time they have been open. Secondly, I received an offer on facebook from Poke and Salad for a BOGO bowl. As we were paying i informed the girl at the register that I had received the deal and showed her. She refused to honor my reward even though i was sent it by the company so I had asked if sh

My wife and I have been coming to Poke and Salad since they opened and I must say this place has gone down hill. First the selection is bare minimum with no improvements in the entire time they have been open. Secondly, I received an offer on facebook from Poke and Salad for a BOGO bowl. As we were paying i informed the girl at the register that I had received the deal and showed her. She refused to honor my reward even though i was sent it by the company so I had asked if she could get the manager. At first she refused but then without my permission took my phone into the back room to "ask the owners son". I asked her to bring my phone back and she slammed it on the counter next to open food. He scrolled through my phone and saw the reward bit shook his head and said no and walked away. Clearly there is mismanagement and its starts at the ground level. As Faithful customers, this business should have honored my coupon but yet they refused. I asked for the manager but the girl said I am not allowed to speak with him. I asked to leave my number but she wouldn't write it down. She stated that she would text the manager but i am sure she never even did that. We drove all the way from moreno valley to get what would have been a decent deal but got treated extremely unprofessional and received less than mediocre Poke. Poke and salad is a joke. Learn how to treat customers.

So I have been coming here forever since it opened and today like every other day I came in to get lunch. There was a new guy oh oh. I ordered the large most expensive option with 3 scoops of sashimi, and literally got maybe 10 pieces. I hope they retrain him otherwise this lunch is no longer worth $12.

Michelle C.

I love this place. Prices are good and service is always quick and friendly. #Clydeafornia

This place is okay but it is dirty. The trays they give you your food on are all gross. Nobody wipes them off. Avocado is an extra charge which is silly since it is included at most poke places. It was okay but not impressed at all. Service is eh. They give the bare minimum.

Eric Coplen

Poke was super tasty. Prices are great and definitely will come back.

Toma Johnson

Love the cool music and the employees are really nice. The poke here is really good and they are fairly priced for the amount of food you get. Also, they're open longer hours than another place down the street. Lastly, they also have fully cooked offerings for people with friends who don't eat raw fish, like my wife.

Esmeralda Gonzalez

Really good food first time in there I love it

June

Decent food and quite a lot for the pricea

Stopped by on my way home from Palm Springs. Just wanted an easy place with a light lunch. It is a typical poke place where you pick your base, your add ons and your protein. The folks working there were very nice and full of good info. They had some unusual protein options, like one that I choose, squid salad. Very yummy. I like spicy food and the wasabi vinaigrette was great on the salad base I had in my bowl. Very tasty and fresh food at a good price.

Poke bowls are amazing here! So many fresh and healthy options for you to chose from. Favorite spot for the best poke!
