We had such a lovely time dining here to celebrate my daughter's graduation. The hostess was amazing and sat us at a different table than the one that was initially offered so that my kids could play with their friends on the nearby grass and we could all be together.
It was that particular accommodation that really made it such a great night! Food and service was great as always of course. Thank you!

My boyfriend and I were in the area for shopping and decided to try Blue Ribbon for lunch. The staff and service was fabulous! However, the prices were a little more on the expensive side compared to other places in LA, but considering the area that isn’t too unexpected. The food quality was absolutely wonderful and we really enjoyed the items we ordered. Their sake list was quite impressive though, as usual, their unfiltered sake list only consisted of three bottles where their filtered was quite large. Overall, we really enjoyed the restaurant and we definitely will be coming back again!

They have done a good job mitigating covid woth outdoor seating, good service and good food, like all good sushi places it pricy, it’s typically $75-100 per person for lunch and for dinner.

Great location in the village but extremely disappointing sushi. The food is mediocre at best, not super fresh fish but quite high prices. I love this spot but I wish they would put more effort into having good quality food. They have such a great opportunity to make this place amazing but the lack of effort on the actual food and purveyor sourcing is lazy or just poor. There’s nothing more disappointing than mediocre sushi.

It was actually closed and they didn’t call us to cancel (we learned from the hostess at Hank’s that the power went out in the entire Palisades Village for a few hours, so they must’ve just closed for the night), but I still rated 5 stars because we dine there frequently and the sushi is outstanding. It’s a tiny little joint with great food, and we’ve even seen a few celebs at the sushi bar.

High quality food and presentation. The sashimi dishes are off the charts. Can get expensive if you are hungry but for special occasions well worth it.

Delicious sushi! We ate outside in a small courtyard. They provided paper menus. They also had a different take on dragon rolls with eel inside instead of the usual shrimp tempura.

Blue Ribbon Sushi was a fabulous choice for celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary, especially in the Covid-19 socially distanced new world. The sushi was scrumptious, the service was prompt and safe, and the outside patio atmosphere was super comfortable. I rarely if ever take pics of my food but that night was an exception. The presentation was amazing and tasted even better than it looked. Extremely happy with our experience overall. Definitely deserves a blue ribbon!

We discovered Blue Ribbon Sushi when we were driving around looking for safe outdoor dining places locally. We have since been here several times and each time we have gained additional appreciation for this restaurant. No, this is not the Urasawa or n/naka type of sushi restaurant. This is the type of sushi restaurant where you can laugh, be loud, and eat sushi the way you want to eat sushi without worrying about the chef scolding you. The fish here is always very fresh. They also have other fun non-sushi items, such as very good & juicy fried chicken. The outdoor ambiance is also awesome. Eating sushi under the stars (and with good safe distancing) is so much fun. This is our new happy place!

We live nearby and have come here several times. Sad to see the chicken removed from the menu as an entree FWIW. The service was incredibly poor - slow, disjointed. Our guests didn't get their sushi until my wife and i finished our meals. I had the steak which was served cold/room temp by a manager (perhaps it had been sitting up there waiting for a our bad server to pick it up but never did?) We really want this to work but it has to step up the service game, covid or not. it was totally packed and busy so slow business isn't a good excuse.
