The sushi was some of the best I have had in a long time. Really fresh fish and some interesting combinations. We shared the 4 person Blue Ribbon special platter and it was great. Inside was a little noisy and I thought too much A/C but we were sitting outside and it was perfect.

Good food but terrible service, not just to take our order but whenever asking for something you would have to get server's attention and then ask for the same item as if you were asking for the first time, i.e. water, extra napkins, etc.

Sushi was fresh and tasty but fried chicken was dry and overpriced. Nice interior and location. In general, not worth the inflated prices.

They attempted to overcharge me by 20% I was pretty disappointed by this as it wasnt until I caught the error did they fix it.. The waiters suggestions were terrible. Stick to just the fish.

always consistencly good sushi, excellent quality, but prices are quite high
some new menu items, are quite good, such as the artichoke .
Scallop handrolls are great but prices at least 100% higher than any other sushi resturant
Friendly atmosphere , small but great to have in the center of the Pacific Palisades.

Great for both dates and families in Caruso's Palisades Village.

Love this space, and the service is really fantastic! Would love to frequent it more, but sadly the sushi was not fresh--particularly the "live" uni. However, the goma ae (spinach and sesame sauce) was the best I've ever tasted, and the shishito peppers were excellent. Will have to try it again soon--maybe they were just having an off night with fish deliveries.
