Izakaya Fu-Ga Ratings and Reviews
Really nice fish, beef, pork, poultry and vegetable dishes. Everything is served tapas style so you can enjoy many great flavors. The only knock was that our server kept ignoring us even though we wanted to order more dishes. The saving grace is that we were able to flag down other servers to place our orders.
Lunch was great, salmon was fantastic, loved the spicy tuna roll. Overall experience was great, I'd recommend this to friends, colleagues and co-workers. I expect nothing but the best when I dine and Fu-ga and they never let me down. Thank you for the great wait-staff, they're always super-courteous and efficient.
Had a get-together with a few friends and initially made a reservation for four. More friends decided to show up and our party grew to seven, and the wait staff were extremely gracious and accommodating with our last minute additions. The food and service were excellent. I highly recommend this place for dinner with friends or for a nice date night.
Reservation for a birthday, they do birthday ice cream at the end. We ordered a ton of dishes and all were executed well. However, since we were a party of 8, the plating was a bit of a problem, given our table size. For izakaya portion dishes, the plates were much too large to be practical. We scrambled every time a new dish would come out. However, the dishes came out quickly, service was on top of everything and very helpful. We were able to nab one of the more "private" booth rooms, which was nice, so we could focus on conversation without being surrounded by the rest of the patrons. Had a lovely evening! Thanks.
Excellent experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the small plates format; it allows you to sample many things and still keep the budget in check. The restaurant is underground and has a very "chillax" vibe. I was in a group of 5 and they seated us in a C-shape banquette with closable curtains. The menu standout for me was the 6oz ribeye steak -- it's served on a hot plate with hot stones to keep it warm. Excellent flavor and texture. As an added bonus, they validate two hours of free parking in the accompanying parking garage so it's a great place to start your DTLA adventure.
The food is always delicious but the standouts are the spicy cod roe spaghetti, the sashimi salad and the brown rice risotto. I love that they offer yuzu sake.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in L.A. -- I love the small plates, designed for sharing, and the service is always wonderful. In particular, the waitress, K.K. is delightful. I look forward to returning.
My husband and I have dined at Fu-Ga around 6 or 7 times and the food is consistently good. We had a reservation for 3 people for 8:15 p.m. on a Saturday night (made via Open Table) and ended up waiting at the bar for about 25 minutes before our table was available. The kitchen was backed up so it took a while for the food to come out this time. Also, the waitresses were not as attentive as usual and it took about 20 minutes before my second glass of wine arrived. Normally, service is a lot better. Our friend was new to Fu-Ga that evening and enjoyed the food and ambiance.
