Great spot- best restaurant in the new Palisades Village. Food is great, as is service, and they validate parking!

Food is fabulous. Service is fabulous. There are way to many screaming and unmanaged kids. There is nothing wrong with your staff tactfully suggesting the parents control the children; we want a nice evening out without untrained parents letting the kids run wild. Please don't let your wonderful restaurant turn into another Pearl Dragon.

The fish was certainly not exceptional for the price which was over double what most Brentwood sushi restaurants and quality was not comparable. I ordered bean sprout salad that was so spicy that I couldn't eat it and I was generally disappointed as I have had better meals there when they 1st opened. This was just average and not one item was a WOW. Not bad, just not anything to rave about or pay that price for

Food is good. Ambience great but don’t send your sweet, well mannered, respectful teenage boys in for dinner on their own. They will be disrespected and ignored by the wait staff. Shameful, They ate very little and were never asked if they wanted to order more. My son finally tracked someone down for the bill and still left a 20% tip. Very shameful

Decent food but the prices are too expensive for the amount of food you get. They need to offer specials to lower the cost of the sushi and sashimi.

Very high quality food experience in a lively and wonderful setting. My first encounter with the host or hostess often seems to be rough. On more than one occasion, there have been tables available inside but we were asked to sit outside or wait, even with a reservation. The last visit, we were told we would need to wait one and a half hours past our reservation, at least, for an inside table, even though there were two large tables empty. Upon a frustrating pushback, a more senior associate ultimately told the host we could go to yet a third vacant table inside. It is always perplexing when restaurants greet you with anything but a desire to be helpful and make you happy. This is not one where that happens easily. Nevertheless, the servers are generally helpful but somewhat difficult to flag down. All-in-all, a pleasant and excellent meal if you don’t let this stuff get you down. Of course, at hefty pricing, it can be difficult.

Got there at 9:00 on Saturday and it was very empty - service was slow and the waiter forgot our Brussels Sprouts so service was negligible.
Uni sushi was excellent but miso soup was horrible. Would go back for lunch when there are more people and better turnover.

We met another family for dinner. The night was perfect.
Kids at one end, adults at the other. The staff was so nice, friendly and professional. The food was outstanding. We had an assortment of sushi, assortment of rolls, the fried chicken and great wine. We had a fabulous evening and can’t wait to return. ❤️

The fish is soooo fresh! May be a bit on the pricey side but that is because the quality is so much better than other high end sushi places. Definitely worth driving out to the Palisades, even in traffic. That says alot...

Food is so-so and often uneven. Certainly overpriced, but that’s to be expected at Caruso in the Palisades. Fine to have dogs on the dining patio, but need to have and enforce a “no-barking dogs” rule. Palisadians can’t seem understand that their beloved pets are disturbing all the other patrons, or more likely, simply don’t care, but the restaurant should.

The sushi was delicious with the perfect ratio of fish to rice - that means to me not too much rice. The A5 wagyu was delicious. I ordered rare and it came medium but it was still delicious. A wonderful sake was suggested. The staff was friendly and helpful. A great meal.

Enjoyed the food, though it took 20 minutes from 1 dish to the next at one point. During this time I listed to screaming children and loud family chatter- I'd wait for inside the next time I come. Service was great!

Very noisy inside. The food was quite tasty..Dungeness crab roll, salmon and mango carpaccio and tempura shrimp roll. The glass of wine was tiny ( 3 oz?) and $14. Crazy

Blue Ribbon is one of my favorite restaurants, I ate in New York and in Las Vegas at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and at the Red Rock Hotel and at the Grove in L.A. and now in Pacific Palisades, every time I eat at any Blue Ribbon I enjoy the food which is outstanding and the friendly service. Highly recommended restaurants.
