About

This restaurant is permanently closed. I believe that the responsibility of a chef goes beyond simply having 100% confidence in the food that is served. To me, the quality of ingredients is just as important as how the dishes look, smell, and taste. This principle has led to my insistence on using organic vegetables and natural meat. I combine fine ingredients with French-Italian methods to create my own style of cooking, with emphasis on great taste and healthy nutrition. Enjoy small plates, wine, freshly cooked al dente pastas, fresh seafood, and natural meat entrées. -- Chef Hideyo

We will miss 2117 when the chef retires. We have been eating at 2117 through these last 20 something years, and the two restaurants before this one. The service is always friendly and there are many choices, especially if you want a light meal. Lately we have been eating their special "Sawtellini" pasta which is freshly made and nicely chewy with many choices of toppings, especially Asian choices. Always a good experience.

One of our regular dining places for more than twenty years, and we will sorely miss it when it closes at the end of the year.

No No No Don't do it.
Empty when we entered at 8:30. Stopped here after a nearby early movie. A few more people came in.

Asian-Italian fusion is a description but confusion is more like it.
Jalepeno pasta (homemade spaghetinni) was blah.
Crab cake tasted like it had been frozen.
Hamachi sashimi is edible but boring.
Spicy tuna tartar was blah and boring.
Nothing fusion, more boring and confusion.
We got the feeling even the staff was bored and lacked personality like the menu and food. (and mediocre service with a slow restaurant)

What a fabulous surprise. This Asian fusion restaurant is a true neighborhood gem. The crab cake was full of crabmeat, not like some that are mostly breading, but this one was dense with crab meat yet light and perfectly crisy. The Ahi tuna salad was delightful topped with a tangy, earthy delicious dressing. Their home made pasta with mushrooms is a must.

Their roast chicken is always special. The tuna tartare was devine and the appetizer so large, could substitute for a small main. Fish excellent. In a strip mall, but don't let that deceive you. Food as good as anywhere

Fabulous gourmet food. Only complaint is price of Pelligrino. 7 bucks for a 25 oz bottle. Two bottles, $14. Too much.

This is the start of the soft shell crab season. It is particularly good here. We shall return many times between now and October.

Really unique approach to almost every dish and brilliantly executed as well. The chef is to be commended for actually accomplishing what others only promise. Our waiter Andrew was the icing on the cake with skill and charm.

A quiet restaurant with good food in a bustling Japanese oriented mall. There never seem to be many customers which is great for those who like quiet dining, but unfortunate for the
owner.

Food was amazing, wine list small and tidy but good value. Note: no bar, sake, beer, wine only. It was a Tuesday and the place was basically empty. Very surprising given the quality of the food. Worth another trip.

My brother recommended this restaurant and I can see why he did. The food and service were every bit as good as places that are far more expensive. The menu has some unique items and not one dish was disappointing. Because the place is quiet enough, you can actually have a real and meaningful conversation. The servers actually took care to see that we were satisfied with our choices. I am looking forward to going back again and plan to do so soon. This place is the real deal!

Another really tasty dinner at 2117. Now that it is no longer soft-shelled crab season, I can try other things.

Tried for lunch on a Saturday. Dealing with parking on Sawtelle is a disaster among the sea of people going to the vast array of Japanese restaurants. Read prior reviews, selected, very disappointed. Should have walked when saw only décor was silly chalked or painted sayings covering one wall regarding " pasta ". A tuna tartare appetizer was fresh and tasty. Had their Sawtelleni pasta with truffle salt/bacon. Sawtellini is just a mildly thicker pasta. Fresh. Sauce fair, pepper and bacon/cream hide any truffle note. Average portion. OVERPRICED for what you get. Service pleasant but minimalist. Other party had thin spaghetti with duck - probably. Hard to tell distinctive flavoring. Overall just not anything special at all; essentially, if you want handmade pasta, find your best Italian place. After all, you don't go to Rome for sushi, do you?
