    I didn't expect to not like the place, but figured it would be rather ordinary and over-priced. I had a group of 9 for my first trip to Wokcano and didn't know how well they would handle us. In fact they did an excellent job. Our server was attentive and personable, we didn't have to wait an abnormally long time for food to arrive even though it was Saturday night, everything we had tasted great. I also thought the price was right where it should be. Although I am not in any way a sushi fan I expect to be back here for more of that excellent Black Pepper Beef Mignon.

    Our waiter was very attentive and professional. The food portion was enormous so if you have kids they can definitely share. It was very happening on a Friday night at 7:30pm but not too loud that we couldn't talk to each other. I liked that we could make our reservation for 4 for a Friday night at 7. That is usually unheard of.

    The Wokcano in Valencia is a terrific mix of flavors, fun, and food. Great sushi served impeccably, beautifully plated, and portions that are quite satisfying. Wait staff was excellent, accommodating, attentive without being intrusive. If you are in the mood for great sushi/fusion flavors/unusual combinations, Wokcano is excellent!

    The food was great, service was wonderful, and a very nice setting. There were two reasons I took a star off: 1) The wine list is VERY small and limited - speaking of the reds, didn't notice the whites as I drink only reds, and 2) they do nothing special for a birthday or anniversary. No small complimentary dessert like most restaurants. Not a huge issue, but lacked that small gesture of appreciation for dining there. Overall, I like the place and the service and look forward to dining there again.

    Our table was ready when we got there. Our waitress was very attentive even though out group was fairly big. The manager made an exception and allowed us to get happy hour at our table so we wouldn't have to move to the bar! This was so great! Thank you!!! I also got a super cute cake for my birthday brought out. Overall I chose the perfect place to book my birthday dinner! Thank you to everyone at Wockano!

    Great Restaurant. I have been to the Wokano's in downtown Los Angeles, and I have been to the Pasadena Wokano's. The Los Angeles location is probably my favorite, with Valencia second. The Pasadena location needs work. The design in Pasadena is more old fashioned, not very striking. We sat at the Happy Hour tables in the bar on Tuesday in Valencia. Wokano's should open up all of the tables to happy hour food. I hate sitting in the bar..

    This restaurant has been in the Valencia mall for awhile, and I figured that we would give it a try for Mother's Day. We arrived a couple of minutes prior to our reservation time, and the hostess told us that we would be seated in 5 minutes. We waited a total of 25 minutes before we were seated....which is okay, except that she also seated someone without a reservation ahead of us. What's the point of me having a reservations then! What's really annoying is that they told us as soon as we sat down that food won't arrive until 30 minutes after the food order is put in. I know it's Mother's Day, but 30 mins?!? It would have been nice for them to tell us when we arrive. It's not like we could do anything at that point in time

    I had never been before so we decided to go to Wokcano's for Mother's Day this year. We had reservations and got right in. Our waiter was courteous and came to our table pretty quick to get our drink orders. There were 5 in our party and everyone was beyond satisfied with their dishes. My son, who does not usually like Asian food, even loved his Peppered Mignon. We will definitely be back.

    I made a reservation for a party of 12 but didn't get seated until 25 minutes later. It was busy due to Mother's Day weekend. We had a couple issues with some of the food and drinks but the staff and manager took care of us and made up for it. Overall the food was delicious and we had a great time. I would definitely go back and understand that it was extra busy because of Mother's Day weekend.

He gives informative and honest menu suggestions, is very genuine and quite frankly exemplifies what customer service is all about. Hopefully your service orientations take a page out of his book!

    Good food. Great service, even on Valentine's Day! The staff was super friendly and helpful. Loved the Dragon Breath martini!! It's great that you can choose from more traditional type Chinese dishes or Sushi dishes. My wife isn't a fan of sushi so I hardly ever have it but at Wokcano she can get her Shrimp with garlic sauce and fried rice(her favorite) while I can have all the rolls I can handle.

    We've been to Wokcano's several times over the last two years. The food is excellent, with a ample variety to choose from. The service has been exceptional and the ambience is romantic, vibrant and suitable for children......during the day or in the evening. We have enjoyed Wokcano's by ourselves, with friends and with our 5 year old granddaughter. Highly recommend this restaurant to people of all ages for any occasion.

Our server, I believe her name was Jessica, was absolutely adorable, friendly, attentive and looked like she actually enjoyed her job. Entree's came out hot and delicious, and the house salad was amazing. Can't wait to go back!!

    Wokano is one of our favorite dining places. New Year's Eve however was a disappointment. mY salmon was overcooked and under seasoned as was my husbands meal. Under seasoning seems to be what we find in most moderately priced restaurants we have dined at. There seems to be an aversion to using the appropriate amount of salt to bring out the flavor of the food. Suggest the chief taste the food that he/she prepares.

    Dined with 9 people total. 6 adults (1 post stroke victim and in a wheel chair) and 3 children. Table was ready on arrival @4:45pm and they accommodated the wheel chair perfectly. Good modern asian food and much appreciation was given to being open on Christmas. The food was excellent! Didn't like that we were sat next to similar sized party as waitress was distracted and less attentive. Other than that, my father-in-law was please and he is Crazy so the entire family was pleased.

    The dining experience overall was fine and I would try again, but the food was disappointing, with the exception of the vegetable tempura. My two types of tuna sushi seemed more like spam wrapped loosely in ordinary rice. The wasabi and ginger seemed commercialized and not authentic. My guest's wrap sandwich looked ok, but unimpressive. For a place with cool furniture, decor, and music (a bit loud for easy conversation), Wokcano was close, but no cigar.
