Wonderful Sushi ... also great Ramen. The only reason not to rate higher was that it was very empty, but could have been due to the late hour.

We where staying at the magnificent hotel across the street and wanted to try other local restaurants. We found O Fine Japanese to be a good local sushi bar. I really enjoyed the diversity of the signature sashimi sampler. After paying very high prices across the street, I found this sushi bar reasonably priced.

The menu and the food, especially the tempura and the specialty rolls are very good. However, the service is poor. There is a long wait to get the food and the wait staff is not attentive and hard to find. When food is served to shared, plates should be automatically given to each person rather than the diners having to wait ti try to flag down a server. The same is true for refills of water glasses, etc

Love love this place. We are from Washington state here on vacation. We've been to a lot of sushi restaurants and this is by far my favorite place. Even my kids loved it!!! They have a great variety of dishes. And they have a great selection of rolls that had no rice. I love rice but they can be quite filling and I want to be able to enjoy more of their selections. We came here twice within two days. Had Shandra serve us both times. She was phenomenal!!!!! She was very attentive and gave great advice on the food!! Would definitely recommend this place!!! Plan to come back when we visit again

Service was unorganized and rushed. If you are going to spends decent money, a welcome environment is important. The appetizer came out at the same time as all the rolls. Usually would not order at the same time but we were pressed to do so by the waitstaff and they were not that attentive.

I found this place on a blog and it didn't disappoint. We stopped here before heading to the beach and had the sashimi lunch special. We were able to split one order in two and just added extra salad and soup. The sushi was excellent and the value was more than I expected. I've been recommending it to anyone else who wants to visit Laguna.

Food was pretty good. Restaurant was listed in the OC restaurant guide, yet when we asked for the menus's they said this location was not honoring it. It is clearly listed on the Laguna Beach roster, and this is how we discovered the place. So we won't be going back, as that kind of set the wrong tone.

My boyfriend and I had reservations and this was our first time at O Fine sushi to celebrate Valentine's Day. We chose this place because it had great reviews on Yelp and we concur!

Location- the restaurant is hidden towards the back of a shopping center but we were able to find parking right away.
Inside is small and perfect for a date.

Food- fantastic dishes with quality ingredients. We loved the sashimi sampler, the crispy rice with tuna, the O-Fine roll.

Service was great- very efficient and courteous.

Ambiance- simple and modern.

O Fine has a broad list of sushi rolls with a wide and creative mixture of ingredients. When it comes to sushi restaurants, the top priority for me above all else is the quality of the fish. While the fish was fresh and good, it was not quite at the very high level of quality I'd be looking for a sashimi meal (having traveled to Japan many times, I have become very picky about this). Since we decided to have several "non-traditional" rolls that evening, the quality of the fish didn't matter as much as it would with a sashimi meal where the fish has to stand entirely on its own. The flavors of the rolls were substantially influenced by the different sauces and vegetables & peppers used on the rolls, and with three out of the five rolls we ordered, I skipped using soy / wasabi entirely, and used very little on the other two. Most (but not all) of the rolls were tasty and well put together, with the sauces and vegetable choices complimenting the fish well.

Service at the restaurant was decent, but the two waitresses could have used a another teammate to help cover the full restaurant. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful, and she was hustling the whole time we were there, taking orders, bringing food, bussing tables, greeting new guests and manning the cash register too.

Our meal was quite affordable given that there were three of us and how much food we ordered. I also really liked that they offered the option to order half-rolls given how much variety their menu has, and it allowed us to try several different things that we might not have otherwise. Having Sapporo and Asahi on tap was a nice touch too.

Overall I would recommend O Fine to anyone looking to have a good Japanese / Sushi meal while visiting the Laguna Beach area.

Good food! They were a little short staffed on the server side, but it was fine. One improvement would be to cover the kitchen a little more effectively. We were sat right next to it and your looking right in.

My husband and I went to O Fine Japanese for sushi while on a business trip. The restaurant is hard to find in the strip mall and it much much smaller than the photos imply. I had several items for lunch. All of the sushi meat was dry and seemed old. The plating was beautiful in presentation and the flavors for the dish were great, but the fish was dry in texture like it had been exposed to air for a long time. I was hoping I was not going to get ill... The bar area is pretty, but the rest of the seating is just ok, several flies in the window beside our booth seat. Even the waitress mentioned the flies... We had the Tzakaya 6 pc sampler, Tuna Tataki izakaya, Seared yellow tail roll, and 1/2 crunch lobster roll. Average in price. We would not go back nor recommend. When on the Pacific Coast Hwy, you need to have fresh fish...

What a gem, although not inexpensive you will find this to be a pleasing atmosphere as a backdrop to some really great inventive Sushi/Japanese dishes. We found the flavors to be amazing as we had the Hamachi with truffle oil as the first dish of the evening. Everything was fresh and although we appreciated the extra eager wait staff, we hope next time they settle down a bit so that we can enjoy our meal even more.

The staff is very friendly and the food is delicious, but kind of expensive. I looked up their menu on line and was planing on having a meal that came with soup, salad and rice, but as we sat down the waiter explained that the menu had changed to a la carte only. I was a little upset that they changed the menu, but not on their website, since we came specifically for the combo meal. I love sushi, but my sister and I felt like having a hot meal. We ended up ordering a few rolls to share( that was delicious), but had to spend way more money than we wanted to.

The service was slow for a Sunday early dinner. Maybe a off night for servers. They may need more help.

O is a good neighborhood restaurant. If I lived nearby I would frequent it for a good meal. Having said that, it is not a destination restaurant. It is not a celebration restaurant. It is not a great restaurant I would tell my friends to drive into Laguna to eat there. That is ok. The world needs good reliable neighborhood restaurants. I had the Seabass Myoaki and it was flavorful and well cooked. The rolls we ordered were good but a little muddy in flavor. Service was rushed or attentive depending on your perspective. This was a date night so it felt rushed but had I been there with the kids the fast service would have been much appreciated. All in all, a good night.
