C.O.D. Seafood & Raw Bar
Located on West 3rd Street near the Beverly Center, C.O.D is a modern seafood brasserie offering Asian-inspired Californian cuisine. Influenced by both the great fishing villages of China and our own Californian coast, C.O.D crafts the best of these worlds together on a plate. C.O.D also features two full-sized bars, an extensive wine collection and hand-crafted cocktails.
C.O.D stands for “Catch of the Day” and describes our restaurant’s dedication to serving only the freshest and highest quality ingredients available on the market. Our fish is never frozen. Seafood is the focus at C.O.D, but everything else―from the microgreens to pork belly―is also presented at the peak of freshness.

Seafood Fried Rice

I made a reservation, which they excepted and they were closed at the reservation time.Luckily, there were other restaurants in the vicinity with outdoor dining that could accommodate us. Very unprofessional
The service was horrendous and the food (except for our oysters) was mediocre at best. The ambiance was non existent on the sidewalk Bc of the boisterous ppl and busy corner. I would not go back until the social distancing period passes.
We went during Dine-LA and the food options were on point except for the dessert - I wasn’t a fan of the white chocolate lava cake.
I get that these are tough times, but the staff couldn’t have been any more rude. No reservation honoring, waited an extra hour to sit, and when I asked where should I sit, their reply was, “I don’t care.” I brushed that off too and finally sat, waited 15 minutes and nobody came to the table. At that point I left.
They were massively understaffed. We were there an hour before we received our appetizers and put our order in. This was a very expensive meal for how poor the experience was.
I had higher expectations on the food quality but I’m thinking that covid disrupted them a bit. Seemed like the staff was spread thin and management kept seating people despite being low staff.
The service was slow. One poor girl working the entire second floor
I look forward to checking things out when they are staffed properly..short staff led to not so great service.. the owner/manager was nice but not enough staff for good service
Everything was great from start to finish. We enjoyed the Dine LA menu and added a few things. The Uni pasta is the best I’ve ever had, the Hakkaido Scallop Carpaccio was so fresh and light, the Grilled Octopus was cooked perfectly with a very generous portion and the Grilled Wagyu Steak was cooked medium rare and better than some steak places. Grateful to find a new place through Dine LA and will definitely be back. Melanie’s service awesome especially since she was so busy and pulled in so many directions. She was patient and helpful.
My boyfriend and I dined during dineLA. Everything was prepared perfectly and served in a timely manner. The shrimp and chive dumplings and the octopus were excellent!
You guys have to hire more personal in your restaurant.
We were waiting our simple order for 1 hour...
Melanie is amazing!!
Great food and service!
So very impressed with the food and service at this restaurant. Especially loved the uni pasta! Lovely ambience too.
Food was outstanding and well worth the experience.
I love seafood and the seafood was very fresh and reasonably priced. The location was almost empty when me and my girlfriend arrived for our reservations at 7:15. By 7:45 the place was packed with a very diverse crowd.
I will be returning and I give a thumbs up on this restaurant!!
Went for Valentine’s Day for the 3 course meal and it was superb! A def must for anyone celebrating any occasion, food and service were both fantastic!
The service is fast the food is good the servers are all right just seems that the servers are really busy running around and getting orders the cooks also come out to help serve the food I do like the fact that they do not push the extra 4% service charge on the customers and the freshness of the scallop and Ernie is amazing and the portions can be a bit small but overall we were very satisfied
Very fresh seafood, especially their oysters! The Uni served is not as good as before. Serving was slow during the holiday.
Top notch across the board
This was our third time at COD. First time a couple of years ago we all loved it. This time the food was over salted. I
It was brought out without rhyme or reason. My mom’s drink arrived practically at end of meal and the cosmo was made with an unidentifiable juice.
This place had real potential and the owner/chef should make sure that his vision is properly executed.
We ordered a number of appetizers and entrees to share and they were all delicious. The only negative was the service. The waitress attempted to take too many plates off our table. I was watching her wondering why she was attempting to do so with one hand. Lo and behold, one of the chopsticks came flying off a plate, smearing sauce on my pants. Then at the end of the evening as we were making last conversation before leaving, I looked to grab my drink which the waitress promptly took away. In the meantime, I had a half bottle left in a champagne bucket which I couldn't drink because she took my cup. At that point, I didn't want to ask her for another cup with lime so we just left. Food was great. Service not so.
Great food. The waitress was fun. But management needs to do a better job with staffing and ensuring people get sat right away and served. Was frustrated multiple times and this isn't the first time feeling that way.
Server was a no show and manager handled everything great even though she was short staffed
Waitresses first night poor woman no training whatsoever. Food disgusting absolutely horrid.wine list out completely had to finally ask ...what do you have to serve us
The whole experience was really not goo
The seafood tower was overpriced for the food we got.
My only comment was our server kept coming back to the table every few minutes. We felt like he wanted the table but the restaurant was not full . I hate that!
When we arrived they did not have my reservation, which wasn’t a big deal because there were hardly any people in the restaurant. I was celebrating an out of town guests birthday and wanted to surprise her, so when I mentioned to the hostess she said they don’t do anything for birthdays. Again, not a big deal, just disheartening because had they seen the note earlier perhaps they could’ve contacted me to let me know.
The service itself was terrible, likely due to what appeared to be a short staffed restaurant. The music was connected to an iPhone and the phone had two incoming calls the entire restaurant heard the timing. We I tended to eat dinner there but the apps took too long that we didn’t have time for it.
To end the experience, a party of 3 came in as we were finishing up our wine and apps and were fighting with each other the entire time. The tables are very close to each other and made our experience that much worse. While it wasn’t the servers fault, I would’ve expected that management would’ve handled the situation, especially for the overpriced experience.
Music needs to be lower. Had to ask twice. They were great about it but loud music is not a good idea in a restaurant.
The Happy Hour is always a win.
Uni pasta with truffles was excellent. Would definitely try again. I suspect the prices in the area reflected the neighborhood.
Uni pasta is bomb.
We came COD for DineLA week and left feeling robbed and extremely disappointed. The food was disgusting and extremely overpriced for tiny portions. The restaurant was dirty- floor was sticky and the tables and benches had remnants of dried up food crumbs on them. Our plates had dirt/dust all over them.
The food came out of order (main entree before appetizers). The spinach on my Chilean sea bass entree was partially uncooked and extremely salty. The sea bass was fine. The grilled octopus appetizer was over boiled and mushy. Such a disappointment. We won’t be going back again.
Always delicious and fresh! I have dined here many times and take locals or friends visiting and they always have a great experience.
We didn’t stay for dinner. After being seated at our table we were ignored. After looking around it was clear they were severely understaffed. We got up and left. Room was in Chaos.
I used to like COD but this visit was a disaster. Noticed a faint odor as I was sitting down and had to send back the oysters which had a really bad aftertaste. The quality was mixed and lower than my experiences before. Finally noticed health grade was B on the way out. Not a good sign for a raw seafood place. Never going back again.
Food and service were both great! Friendly and accommodating staff.
Great Fresh seafood
I used to love this place! Not anymore.... service is slow and they were understaffed!
But mainly it’s a food.... it’s not as fresh seafood as it used to be. And now they have a “B” size on a door
Uni pasta was as good as always, so as scallops... the rest of the food was ok, and their Uni dish is half a size of what it used to be for the same price.
The oysters and salmon did not taste fresh. We ordered a bottle of wine, which tastes spoiled. The waitress was never around so we could not make and comments to her.
