I made a reservation on open table and we all show up there to find a sign that states the restaurant is closed for lunch (our reservation was for 12:30pm.) this place is a joke. This has never happened to any of us.

We were on vacation in Laguna Beach for a few days and decided to have sushi at this restaurant which came recommended by a friend. The menu is broad with many sushi, sashimi and cooked selections. We sat at the bar hoping to see the chef preparing our food but the view was somewhat blocked by the refrigerator. The sashimi was fresh and came attractively prepared, however, the portions were small and the price high. Spanish mackerel sashimi is a favorite and was ordered first. I was disappointed by the small size of the portion. The best item was a salmon skin handroll. If you are willing to spend quite a bit for small portions of very fresh fish, go to O Fine Japanese Cuisine.

Came here for my birthday. O Fine is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. Their tempura shrimp makes a great appetizer. I had their rib eye teriyaki. So good - tender and delicious!

We used to go frequently, stopped when they changed hands. Used to be very friendly, now not so much. thought we would try again. Was not shown a seat, just told where to sit. Servers seemed rushed, but not a lot of people there. Not really rude, just uncaring and cold. Miso soup had very little in it, all broth. Shrimp tempura was greasy without much shrimp. Rolls were ok, nothing special. All in all, disappointing.

The fish was very fresh but the calamari was way over cooked. We have eaten here many times before but this time left me feeling a little blah.

Came here after visiting their Yelp page and absolutely loved it! Our server was delightful (everybody seems to work together too and help each other out which is great). The sashimi and sushi rolls were amazing and bottle of wine was perfect! My family and I will absolutely be back here again :)

Located in a strip mall next to Gelsons, this restaurant was really busy! There weren’t enough wait staff Maybe bc of the holidays.
The fish was fresh and well prepared. Some of the sides weren’t great. The cucumber salad had an odd sauce. The miso soup was cool. We didn’t love it.
Expensive too.
Waitress was very sweet.

This has been our go to place since it opened. At one time we went their an average of once a week. Always super fresh the sashimi sampler is my favorite on the menu. I liked the atmosphere better without the TV’s in the main dining room but the vibe is still upscale for a strip mall location.
Go. You’ll love it.

This place has really gone downhill since I lived in OC five years ago. Service was poor. Feel of the restaurant was cheap overall. Quality of the fish was poor. Particularly blue crab and sea urchin. We got sick off the Uni.

Awesome quality food. Live Shrimp, Kambachi and Toro were outstanding. I wish the music was a little bit louder, and because we had no reservation and walked in with 9 people... I felt the service from the server was a tad slow. Chefs were amazing with their food presentation.
