In addition to the reputation for its beautiful oceanic view and a variety of special menu items, it attracts many customers for private parties in the banquet room with a karaoke which holds up to 70 people. It is also a perfect destination for a romantic night out in town. Added to that atmosphere, it holds big wide screen TVs for sports fans to enjoy the game of their choice. Thanks to the beautiful oceanic view, this site attracts not only the daily local customers, but also students from University of Southern California campus and tourists.

    Food was good but pricey, especially when the waiter tried to overcharge us by $60. It was probably a mistake, but still a reflection on the level of service which is more appropriate for larger groups than personalized service.

    Wow. The sushi was good. That I have to give Fusion. Although, I met my friend and her bf for a double date, and they literally tried to get you in and out as fast as possible. I think it's pretty obvious between the difference of fast attentive service and being rushed. That was really unfortunate. We even tried to tell the waitress that we were trying to catch up, but she didn't really care. (And that reflected in her tip) All in all, great sushi. But don't go if you are trying to have a casual leisurely dinner.

    I have been to this restaurant before. This time was so loud that conversation was hard. Our waiter was not attentive, never brought the edamame, we asked for it later in the meal. Salads and rolls were brought at once, did not all fit on the table which servers thought was funny and did not help us. We had to make it fit. We thought it would all come on one big slab like a boat...should have been warned. Will not be back as it was just not fun for us..especially at the cost. It get like a race to get us out of there.

    If your objective is cocktails and a party atmosphere with a side of mediocre sushi, this is your place. Service was bad; waiters were chatting next to our table without consideration for us or noticing that we hadn't been served but our friends had. The sashimi was borderline fresh. The seared ahi was rubbery, and our waiter informed us that it was made in advance, not to order. The freshwater eel was served cold, which surprised the waiter. We figured our food sat around while the waiter hung out. Never again. Loud music doesn't mask poor quality and bad service!

    Great food, wonderful choices, beautifully displayed and quite yummy. Music was surprising for a sushi restaurant; more fit for a club or Vegas venue. The restaurant was very crowded and the staff offered us seating at the sushi bar (twice) but we preferred a table and they did accoommdate our reservation. The booth provided some insulation from the music. Don't consider this a site for a quite conversation, or even a conversation among more than two people. Also the table hight was very high compared to seating, making it a bit awkward.

    When the table that arrived AFTER you is eating before you've had your order taken, you know you're in trouble. When the orders then have to be corrected a couple of times, things have gone from bad to worse. And since the food was fine -- but nothing special -- there's no reason to return.

    Sushi was fresh and well presented, just didn't taste that great. The service was rushed.... with the server bringing the check before we had finished our jmeal or had asked for it. We ordered an appetizer, the short ribs... which were fatty in the bulgogi style and not very tasty. On our bill there were two different tallies for a recommended 18% tip, which was weird. Would've been more enjoyable if we felt we weren't keeping our servers from turning our table.

    The only negative comment I have is that we made a reservation for 10 and when we arrived our table was not ready. They seated 6 of us at a table first and said when the rest of our party arrived they would add on another table and more chairs. We had a birthday party and it was not great service to make my other guests stand and wait for more table & chairs. However because the sushi was excellent it made us forget about the inconvenience we experienced.

    I made a reservation for my wife and my 40th birthdays looking forward to some sushi with my good friends. To start, we were sent to the back of the restaurant where another party was being seated. Our table was not even set up for us. We had to wait another 5-10 minutes for a table. When we were seated, the first thing the waiter asked was how long will you be staying because we have another reservation after you. We were rushed to order. After the food was served, our waiter was nowhere to be seen. Even more frustrating was that the bill included an 18% tip which our waiter did not deserve.

    I’ll start with saying that black cod and “Love boat” sushi were pretty good and plenty for 5 people. Three stars for service because we were sited right next to the speakers and the noise level was unbearable. We asked to lower the music and finally complained to the manager and he moved us to a quieter table but while we were walking to a different table all our plates and drinks were cleared and we had to order again.

    Such unique, fresh rolls, but the service was SLOW and when I ordered first thing for the kids, it was the last plate out, just before the appetizer we ordered (which I sent back bc it was the END of the meal). I'll totally return, but not for dinner with kids (even at 6:30 it was a disaster).

    We celebrated my birthday here and the food was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive to my party of 6. The only negative was in regards to the bar. Our first round of drinks came very quickly. Our second and third rounds took much much longer. We even got to the point of asking if the order was put it because almost 20 minutes had passed. Other than that I'd highly recommend this restaurant. Another plus is a parking structure is directly across the street so parking was not an issue at all.

    There were four of us and we ordered a sushi boat and it was the perfect amount of food. Our cocktails were very good and very reasonably priced (especially for Manhattan Beach) We were pleasantly surprised and the quality of the rolls and sashimi and the selection we received. It was a Saturday night and very busy. The noise level was a little high, but overall, the service was fast, friendly and great. There were also TV's playing the hockey playoffs which was nice, and the bar area seemed to come alive as we were leaving around 9:30pm. I will definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back soon!

    We went to Fusion on New Years Eve and they did not have a bar tender. We were offered beer and wine, and the beer on the menu was not what was available. We asked about a couple specials and the wait staff could not tell us about. We asked about a couple substitutions to the menu and the wait staff could not accommodate us. After 4 attempts to order, and Fusion unable to accommodate us, we ended up leaving and only paying for beer.

    The table for our party of 5 was ready for us when we arrived. Out attentive server took our drink order while we perused the extensive sushi menu. Fusion Sushi is a reliable place for good-quality sushi prepared in both traditional and updated styles. The ambiance of the restaurant is comfortable and attractive. This visit, we ordered the sashimi sampler plate and a variety of sushi dishes including some of their specialty rolls. We also ordered eel hand rolls, and when these showed up mistakenly as "cucumber hand rolls", our server took them back promptly and the corrected order was out to us quickly. Nicely done.
