  • "Without planning very far in advance my young adult daughters and I popped into Wokano Santa Monica on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was full, but not too crowded. There were a few large (8-10 person) groups, some families, and several couples. Although the restaurant is large, the space is sectioned nicely so it doesn't feel cavernous. The outdoor patio was pleasant. The range of food choices suited us as we shared a selection of sushi and hot dishes. The variety of sushi wasn't exotic, yet the options hit our sweet spot and we picked a combination of rolls and individual pieces that were delicious. Although we were full before they arrived, the hot items were so tasty that we devoured them as well. Overall: very good!"

  • "I went on a double date and this place was nice. We were seated outdoors and there was a dj. Overall, great dining experience. I would say the food was somewhat bland compared to their Valencia location."

  • "Food was a little salty and beef (very tender, great cut fillet) and eggplant sauces very similar. Garlic noodles like spaghetti and parmasean. But sushi, edamame, seafood excellent. We were there on a rainy night so fabulous patio was closed therefore noise level inside almost unbearable. But we'll give it another try. Music good. Great service."

  • "Food was great, service was not that great. When we arrived, the hosts gave us a weird greeting, but she was friendly and we were sat right away. Our table was upstairs in a nice booth. Our server came over about a minute after we were sat and greeted us. My boyfriend inquired about hot sake prices, and I think this made our server believe that we weren't going to spend a lot of money, or tip well. We ordered After that, he brought us our sake, and the food came out shortly after. When ordering sushi, you order frequently, and order more. This was not the case, our server didn't even come over to check on us. We left hungry and unhappy! I work at a fine dining Japanese restaurant in WeHo and I was seriously shocked by my experience!"

  • "It was my birthday and the food was great but the waitress was not. She ignored us for the most part and didn't bring enough spoons for the table when we got a cake we had to beg her to wait on us."

  • "Went to celebrate a birthday and tried a few appetizers which were all good. Would like to go back and try some more, the menu is so extensive. Also had some sushi which was also very good. Will definitely be back."

  • "Our waiter was excellent, but the time between our order and receiving our meal was long. The waiter felt badly about the time and brought us some edamame (not ordered) at no charge, to make up for our long wait. Once the food came it was delicious, especially the crab/avocado roll in soy wrap, and the honey walnut shrimp. I will definitely be back trying other menu items as the overall experience was great made so by the wait staff from the front door on."

  • "Our server really set the pace for the evening. He was extremely nice, informative and did not rush us at all. We had the calamari and crispy brussel sprouts for starters and they were both delicious. The tuna and albacore sashimi were well seasoned in light, tangy sauces. The tuna had a bit of a kick to it. We also tried the spicy tuna on rice cakes. Though they were good, the rice cakes were more of mushed rice together than crispy. All in all a great experience and I would recommend this restaurant."
