I haven't had Sushi in California for almost 10 years... Since I live in Boca Raton, and was visiting Culver City, I decided to look on open table and see which restaurant looked interesting and inviting.
I really didn't get lucky since this restaurant had some great reviews. It was every bit as good as I anticipated. There were exceptional appetizers that really were so great. I particularly loved the filet mignon appetizer. All the sushi was amazing with the freshest seaweed paper I have ever had. Yum. It really was a great dinner. Next time back in Culver City, I would be sure to return.

K-Zo is a superb place to eat--the japanese american fusion specialties are great. Moreover, the ambience is conducive to conversation and a classy experience.

K-Zo is imo one of LA's finest sushi options. I am always happy to have an opportunity to dine there and tell people about it frequently

We had a birthday dinner here. The venue is nice to look at and the service was good and friendly. The waitress was knowledgeable and helped with our Sake questions.

For the price, the sushi is not up to par. The toro was the biggest disappointment as it came off fishy. When paying $10 a piece, you expect better from this cut. The venue ended up taking it off our bill after we could not even finish it. The rest of the sushi and rolls were mediocre. Not worth the price.

That said, i have friends who swear by this place. Perhaps we went on an off night.

Excellent sushi. Amazing menu with salads and hot entrees as well. You can never go wrong visiting K-ZO!

We tried it, since they had great reviews. The food is good, it is extremely busy and it is also very noisy. It is good to go there once in a while, but I do have more favorable Japanese restaurants to go to.

Very unassuming from the outside. I've passed this place many a times but never went in. The quality of fish is superb. Lots of great choices. Wine and beer only though.

The food was horrible. They served us old smelly fish that we sent back. The lotus root chips was stale and seemed days old. I heard the hostess tell our waitress to hurry up our meal because they needed our table after we were only seated for 20 minutes. The tables are so close together and over packed that the wait staff is constantly carrying food over our heads. This place is a disgrace!!!

Great sushi! Fresh, fresh, fresh. Great service. Sushi was tasty, not overly "sauced" as with many other places.

Frankly got a lot of recommendations for this place but was not that good. Compared to other places it's really lacking in Los Angeles

Food offered some innovative treatments of Japanese take non-Asian dish (Tuna capaccio), wonder flavors! 6-taste appetiser was really a great treat. Risotto was okay, but I wanted a bit stronger flavor.
Steak was great.
Sake pricing was very welcoming.

This is a regular place for us but it wasnt up to par this last time. The service was not very attentive and slow. Portion sizes were smaller than normal. We ordered a cooked yellowtail which was inedible, very fishy, poorly seasoned and poorly cooked. The spicy calamri we normally get was rubbery. while the sushi was fine and as good as usual everything else was subpar. Maybe they were just having a bad night but it was disappointing.

Had lunch with sister and my husband here. We tried the DineLA menu, all the food we picked were delicious. Our server was very nice and friendly. It was a little crowded but it was lunch time in a very good restaurant. Overall would eat here again.
