    Beautiful upgraded spot in Uptown Whittier. The food was delicious, fresh, melt in your mouth sushi. Good specialty cocktails and sake, also a variety of good wines.

    We had an early dinner reservation at 6:30pm, our reserved table was right next to the entrance. It was tight and very breezy from the door opening and closing. Before we sat down I politely asked for another table and were told no other tables are available or offered any other option. “We’re so booked we don’t have anything for you.” At that hour, if you were to scan the restaurant you can clearly see available seating. In our humble opinion, our seats were the worse in the restaurant next to the entrance door. We came here based on recommendations from friends and the new ownership. No one really paid attention to our needs or we were given the opportunity to have a better dining experience. The only person came to our table to say hello was the former owner of Azabu. No one from the management showed any interest at all. Poor customer service and inexperienced staff in handling our situation, clearly poor customer service for any patron visiting this establishment.

    Took my 18 year old son for dinner here on a weekday and the place was bustling. The food, ambience and service were excellent! I love the decor and the extensive selection of food/drink items on the menu. It’s refreshing to have a classy restaurant like this in uptown Whittier ❤️

    Everything we ordered was excellent. Great drinks, nice ambiance. Portions were extremely small and the prices are were bordering outrageous, especially for the area. I could understand if it was on Melrose, but this is Whittier. 2 pieces of King Crab sushi was $35. I would love to return because we really enjoyed our meal, but our bill was over $200 (one drink each) and my fiancée didn’t even feel full afterwards.

    This place is a gem. The ambiance and service was top notch. We were a group of 5 and sampled several rolls/dishes and it was all delicious. Best spicy garlic edamame!

    The service was very slow and not very friendly. The noise level was too high and prices were too high.

    Other than a few kinks to iron out (food to wrong tables, warm beer, overwhelmed 1st night), I would definitely go again on a slower evening and try more items and cocktails.
