The service was great. Fast, friendly, and great sushi. I recommend sitting at the sushi bar. I took a date there and the ambiance was good. Not to loud and not to quiet.

Good Foor, But Noise Level Over the
While the food is great, the noise level was so off the chart that even sitting at a table far from door and kitchen, we could not event (two of us) head each other across a small table. The noise level was so bad, that it was uncomfortable to even sit there and practically ruined the experience of the dinner.
We'd suggest if you do eat there, not on weekends, not at night and if you do, you'd probably have less noise sitting at one of their few outside tables street-side. Not sure we'll go back, given we like to enjoy our food in a better atmosphere.

One of the best sushi restaurants in Los Angeles. Interesting, eclectic and adventurous menu. FRESH fish. Chic ambiance. K-Zo is sure to please.

Go Go to K-Zo
Food was fantastic, cannot believe the restaurant has been opened since 2006--the restaurant has a stylish look and it is obvious that the owner and head chef maintains a high level of enthusiasm by serving up the freshest, tastiest dishes. Cannot wait to return to this outstanding restaurant. And although the sushi and sashimi are amazing the extensive menu offers cooked dishes as well. If you can save room for their dessert they will also wow you with sweet treats. Not to be forgotten, the staff is warm and friendly.

Enjoyed our first visit to K-Zo very much. Great spicy tuna on brown crispy rice. Terrific service and easy parking! I can't wait to go back.
5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent for years
Outstanding, creative, fresh Japanese cuisine, this has become a fail safe dinner option for a family of picky eaters. The spicy tuna crispie squares are to die for.

Sushi and more
Its menu has a lot of items from hot appetizers to entrees. Of course, if anyone goes there, you should focus mainly on sushi, they are that good, fish is fresh, rice is warm and sticky, plus the seaweed wrap is not too chewy, just about right.

Best in town
K-ZO has all of what we look for in a great sushi restaurant - except exorbitant prices. The standard, as well as the special preparations are all equally first rate. A constant favorite for us.
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Menu goes beyond great sushi. Dishes with a French twist, varied for those who do not favor sushi.

The food is superb. The service is impeccable. I had a great time!

Nice Culver City Gem
If u are looking for a great Japanese sushi place without paying Sunset Blvd.
prices then K-ZO is the place for u. When you are escorted to your table all
the chefs say hello as they are preparing the meals. There were no less than
5 people coming to your table between your waitrr, the food runner and two
people regularly collecting used plates etc.
It's perfect for both large & small appetites.They have hot (scallops and
mushrooms on halfshell) and cold (sesame green beans) "small plates"
perfect for summer or winter. I recommend the lobster roll.

Superb selection on sushi. Delicious fusion dishes. Attentive service. Thank you
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
great sushi, nice happy hour
A bit noisy until the pre-theatre crowd cleared out. A mild touch of fusion (smoked duck breast - quite good), but mostly traditional Japanese, done well. We liked the popcorn shrimp for Happy Hour, though I think Sushi-Roku's is slightly better. Their sushi is very good...

Fabulous Japanese food in LA
K-ZO never disappoints. The food is utterly delicious. The chefs use the freshest ingredients and prepare them with great skill and inventiveness. Without a doubt, K-ZO serves the best sashimi I have had in Los Angeles. But every single thing I have ever eaten here was wonderful. The great food is matched with a lovely atmosphere and very attentive, friendly service.

Surprisingly they have quite rare food items such as "ANKIMO" and ”HAMO" and legendary sake "KOSHINO-KANBAI." Besides, Japanese chef creatively makes each dish without losing traditional flavor.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really great service here! Our waitress was very attentive throughout the meal and made us feel welcome. The food was awesome - we did the Dine LA menu and it was so great. I especially loved the Tuna Carpaccio and Ethnic Albacore Salad. For dessert, the Purple Parfait was a fun and interesting dish that I really enjoyed. Overall, very nice dining experience.

This is one of a handful restaurant
This is one of a handful restaurants that we came back for the second time in a month. The food was as good as the first time we came. I gave it 4 stars just because of a slow and somewhat awkward service at the beginning provided by a new waiter otherwise it worth 5 stars, Definitely a gem in Culver City.

This restaurant is ALWAYS terrific. Great service, delicious food, clean, hip, and fun.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not your typical sushi experience
The usual suspects on the sushi menu are excellent, but there are many creative choices you won't find on any other menus. K-ZO himself greatly enhances the experience.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Like Coming Home
Every time I come here it's such a terrific experience. I've said it every time and I will say it again. It's hands down the best sushi in LA. The Barracuda, Ocean Trout, and the Toro Truffle Angeleno Sushi, decadent and delicious. I'm not sure what I enjoy more the fabulous food or the warm and flawless service. I guess it starts at the top with K-ZO then trickles down he always makes me feel at home when I pull up a chair at the sushi bar. Thanks K-ZO for making my mouth so happy!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
K-ZO himself, front and center adds to the experience. An interesting menu that extends beyond the usual expectations

Nite on the patio
Went to K-Zo for the Lobster roll and was Not disappointed. Arrived early for our reservation and durn only place to sit was on the patio. It was a cool evening so this was a spectaculars location. Also had the Smoked Duck Breast Salad, only do that I'd you area a duck person. No Nubians need to apply, it was mouthwatering and satisfying Service was fast and attentive my teapot was never empty.

AMBIANCE WAS LIVELY, FOOD VERY TASTY, AND SERVICE EXCELLENT! WE FOR SURE WILL COME BACK.

High quality sushi and great tapas. Our go-to place. Reasonably priced.

Amazing Sushi Restaurant-Excellent!
I decided to go here based on a recommendation from a friend from Sapporo, Japan that certainly knows her sushi. I sat at the sushi bar and was pleasantly greeted by the itamae. I ordered a beer (Asahi Kuronama) which was really good. I decided to order omakase and I'm glad I did. The sushi selections were excellent and had I ordered from the menu, I would've never experienced some of the selections that were provided. After having about 18 delectable pieces, I ended with a blue crab hand roll that hit the spot. During the sushi love fest, I bought a beer for the itamae staff and we toasted, which was really nice. I'm definitely going to return and I highly recommend this place, especially if you order omakase.

Melt in your mouth sushi
Hadn't been here in a while and forgot how amazing Keizo and his team are. Wonderful sushi, sashimi and gorgeous presentation. Won't wait so long before going back

Best Sushi Dining in 5 mile radius
Been going to K-Zo for 6+ years and it is consistently excellent. I took my nephew who lived in Japan and thinks sushi is the best food on the planet and he LOVED it. Hot plates, small plates, creative rolls, high quality premium fish like unbelievable toro - they've got it all. They really want you to be happy, so the service is eager and sweet - even if not always in tune. Usually it's great, especially at the sushi bar (maybe cuz K-Zo himself is watching?) but this time there were a few misses. Nothing big, and it was minor in compared to the quality of the food and the nice atmosphere. Noise level was totally tame this time, especially for a Saturday night. If you've not tried it, do.

Great food, ok service.
The food is always great at K-Zo. The filet mignon with truffle butter was phenomenal, as was the Pork Ribs and sushi. We always enjoy the kobe beef tataki too.
This was the first time we had ok service at the restaurant. Normally, the waitresses are attentive, but it took us several tries to order our wine and order some extra food. The waitresses were nice, but it was a little annoying.
Nonetheless, we really like this restaurant and will continue to come back.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always consistently excellent sushi presented in a creative way. One of the best sushi places in all of L.A>

Many choices and all served beautifully. Waitress helpful in deciding what to choose.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was great no major complaints
I requested a table that's not in the center of room but we got a table in the center of the room which was a little upsetting. I don't mind if there's none available but hostess did not mention anything. Just sat us. It would have been nice for them to mention why we are getting the table we requested not to sit at. That's all!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
elegant japanese food
comfortable setting in which to converse, food always impresses whether small plates or sushi, and always something served at next table that we want to try. Best sushi in town.

ALways impeccable, unique choices and traditional fare. Love K-Zo!
