    Don't miss the Fried avocado stuffed with ahi tuna and crab- DELICIOUS! Service was good but they kept forgetting to take away our dishes so they piled on our table. We had to ask twice to get them removed so we could have some space- kind of annoying. Sushi was fresh and delicious. Also very much enjoyed the shrimp and candied walnut entree! Will definitely go again for the two aforementioned dishes...

    The food was great - I had the spicy crabmeat tempura roll and it was so delicious! My friends had some of the Chinese dishes - these are HUGE portions, large enough for two people to share; three if you're not too hungry. Our server wasn't as attentive but overall, the food and atmosphere and the company of my party made up for it. Great location in Long Beach - next door to cool whiskey bar The Stave!

    Friday was my nephew's birthday and needed a last minute reservation for a big group. Our original reservation was for 20 people that ended up being 34 people. I called the manager (Adi) and he was so nice and did everything to accommodate make us feel welcome. We had a great time! I will definitely schedule more celebrations at Wokcano - Long Beach. Now my sister who lives in Pasadena is saying they will check out the Pasadena location as well since they liked the food so much. We have a large family that like to go out to eat, drink and have a good time. Thank you Adi and crew for adding another restaurant for us dine in.

    Enjoyed our early dinner there on Mother's Day! the five of us were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Love the lounge area by the bar. Love the variety of Asian foods. Japanese, Thai and Chinese were well represented. Tried their sushi. The volcano roll and spicy tuna were very tasty. Hot and sour soup was good. Ordered the Mongolian beef. Drank a lot of Kirin beer and tried sa flight of sakes. Very nice. Great service too. Great spot to go anytime.

    Food as always was great. I hadn't been in awhile and it was good. Had a gluten allergy in the group and the menu isn't very friendly for those folks but the manager was very responsive and worked with us to find her something great to eat that was safe. Service from the waitstaff was very nice but ridiculously slow. It took 21 minutes to get the check, long after we had finished and plates had been cleared and then 11 minutes more to return the credit card for signature. The meal tool almost 2 hours with the server disappearing for 20-30 minutes at a time. Hopefully it was a one time bad experience.

    The ambience in the restaurant was perfect. I took my girlfriend here on Valentines Day and I know now that it was the right choice. She loved how dimly lit the restaurant was, it gave it that "David Fincher" type of feeling. You'll know what I'm talking about if you've seen his movies. Very hip place. The service wasn't so hot but I think that was due to the holiday. Would come back here again.

    I thought that the selection of Asian cuisine was good. It had something for both my date and I. We both thought that the food was exceptional and she wanted to go back another time. Service was slow since they were completely booked, but I was seated immediately after telling them of my reservation through Open Book.

    I selected this restaurant based on the many favorable reviews. We wanted a celebratory meal for my husband's birthday and Wockano was perfect. Our party included four adults and three children aged 5-11. Everyone had a wonderful meal. The won ton soup was chock full of won ton, chicken, shrimp, and vegetables. The sushi and rolls were spectacular. Japanese, Chinese and Korean dishes were available and everything we tried was terrific. Everyone enjoyed several dishes and the adults had saki, but the prices were still very reasonable. The service and ambience were perfect. The restaurant's location was easily accessed with plenty of parking available in the immediately adjacent garage. We'll be back.

    I highly recommend the "garlic crispy bussels sprouts". The "white fish with asparagus" entree was a wok-based stir fry with a dark, savory black bean sauce. Delicious! We sat outside on their large patio on a 65-degree evening in Long Beach. I guess not too many people do that in CA, but we're from Minnesota. Felt like summer to us!

    I formed a Dinner Club last year and it has been a lot of fun. This was our first outting to start the new year, we took off for the summer months. I have been to Wockano but others in the group had not experienced it yet. Its just a great ambience that has a little of something for everyone. The service was great and the food was terrific! Of a side note, I'm also glad that the parking stucture located next to the Restuarant now just charges a flat rate of $6.00. This should have been done a long time ago!

    Dined on 10/4/2013
    I've eaten in a couple of the chain restaurants, and this one by far is the coolest. The décor is rather mysterious with just the right amount of noise and intimacy. The sashimi was very fresh. The garlicky roasted Brussels sprouts are fantastic and good for two to share--not your mother's brand of "eat your vegetables"! The crab hand rolls and spicy scallop hand rolls were to die for (and since the price was right, went for two). A definite return is warranted. Note: circle the block so you can park next door, which has a couple hours validated. Parking around the Promenade was quite pricy.

    For a dinner this place is very affordable. Made the reservation for dinner for 2, my friend came in first and I came in second, when I approached the front they just look at me weird when I told them the name on the reservation, didn't even helped me, so I walked and find our table.. Good thing the servers are amazing.... Food is great, it wouldn't be a good review if I didn't have a good experience the servers.specially for a foodie like me that spends a lot on food and drinks.

    We had reservations so we were seated right away. After sitting for 15 minutes, we finally asked who our waiter was. When he showed up he offered no apologies and seemed annoyed with us. He came by once but after dinner was done and cleared, another 20 min went by before we could ask for the check. Never had such poor service. It must be said that all other servers/bus boys etc were very helpful.

    It was a great restaurant/lounge atmosphere. The service was great also. The food was decent but a bit overpriced. The orange chicken was very good but the spicy basil shrimp was a bit too salty. Street parking is hard to find in downtown so you will most likely have to park in one of the paid parking structures.

There was a large party of rather loud people nearby, so it is not the place for a romantic dinner. Lots of very interesting items on the menu...a good mix of all kinds of Asian foods.
