We were there on a Sunday evening and ordered the “Sunday Funday” special. Definitely a great value, there is a lot of food! One for two would have been enough, not sure they would let you share the special though. The food was quite delicious, although some of the items on the assortment plate were a bit cold. Service was friendly, I like the atmosphere of the restaurant. It was quiet, but it also wasn’t very crowded at the time we were there.
We showed up at 6:50 for a 7:00 pm rezi. We thought we would check in and grab a drink while we waited. Not sure if they had a bunch of buss people not show up but the host looked to be too busy running around clearing and setting tables to even bother checking the host station. We stood there waiting until after 7:00 before the host finally looked over to see a fairly large backup forming. When we told him our reservation time he just told us it would be about a twenty minute wait and went back to setting tables. Considering the fact that there were a bunch of tables open....we were more than a bit surprised. All of the above said....
They sat us at our table about 10 minutes late, but the friendly bartenders helped to take the edge off of what was looking to be a bad experience. The food was amazing (have the beef cheeks!!) and so was the waiter....Hence the 5 stars for service.
I was leaning toward blaming the host for the poor beginning, but over flowing wastebaskets in the restrooms, un-bussed tables on the patio seating probably indicates poor management.
Go for the food... be prepared for a wait.
Splendid quality and good variety
The service, food and drinks were excellent. It is a great place for date night, or time with the girls or guys.
Great Valentines Night Dinner! Service was amazing and so was food! Great music and vibe. Definitely will be back!
beautiful space. food was good but not remarkable, if it wasnt the molecular size of their maki roles it would have received a much higher rating. too many other amazing choices
Sunday Funday was a great value! Food is not really Japanese, just Japanese-inspired. (I am Japanese).
The best sushi I’ve had outside of Tokyo. Really a fine dining experience in a lovely little part of LA.
I made a reservation for my husbands birthday. I noted in my reservation it was for a birthday. When I checked into the restaurant I told the server it was for my husbands birthday. The restaurant did not offer us a dessert menu at the end nor did they bring out dessert. Instead they brought me the check. When I noted my disappointment the waitress said we don’t offer birthday desserts. Ridiculous because I didn’t even get an opportunity to order dessert. Never coming back. Food was mediocre and service was terrible even though the place wasn’t even full.
I had great experience. I wanted to try something new. The food was delicious. Shareable food and tapas vibe. The Drinks were excellent as well.
Great place for groups! Happy hour lunch or dinner ! Great service awesome food 👏👏👏
Expensive but very good food.
Dine LA: Presentation of plates was very nice; however, most of the food lacked flavor. The beef cheek was good, which actually had some flavor. The decor was nice and ambiance is pretty hip. I’m happy to have tried this restaurant; however, it is not for me.
