RIZE Thai Sushi
Verry good thanks
The food was excellent! The double fried pork belly was delicious. The duck spring rolls were lacking in the amount of meat but still very tasty. Our main entree's, the salmon bowl and shrimp pad thai were great portion sizes ans extremely delicious!The passion mojito and the leche martini were made consistently by any staff member and had great flavor. The service was great in the fact that any staff member would stop by to check on you to ensure you had everything you needed. Overall, an excellent experience.
RIZE was amazing. The best sushi I have had in a while, but they still have great non-sushi options. The service was impeccable and we felt at home while we were there. Highly recommended!!
I love this place: the food is great, the drinks are fun but it was pretty noisy that night and the service was slower than usual. I still love this place and would come back!
Delicious and original food. Casual environment.
Somewhat disappointing. The reviews had been so good, so we decided to try this place. It sounded interesting with the idea of Thai/sushi fusion. The roll combos weren't that great, and very duplicative. The flavors were very heavy (not necessarily spicy), and my husband ended up with an upset stomach. Don't think we will be going back. Service was fine, though one of our servers didn't speak very good English, so it was hard to communicate our order.
We had a disappointing experience. The service was very poor and the food was quite mediocre. They got the order incorrect and the soup arrived after two other courses. It wasn't completely full and yet we could barely carry on a conversation.
Definitely would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Great Place and new find..
The service wasn’t great but the food was amazing! By not great service, just super awkward waitress and difficult to communicate. But food came quickly and it was all very, very good. Definitely will go back, and for happy hour.
Just went back to RIZE last weekend. I didn’t even mind missing the happy hour menu as everything we had was delicious and the prices are great. I think this is a hidden gem in the world of sushi...plus the combo of sushi and innovative Thai is magical. Loved each dish, tasty, beautifully presented. Great time!
The quality of the sushi isn’t very good, and beware because the menú has 2 or 3 sections for every type of food. And when you think you’re ordering a 10 dollar sushi, on the other section there’s a very similar one that costs 20 dollars. When the check comes you realize they charged you the expensive one. Don’t try the rice as mine i could tell was microwaved last minute, but the curry was good!
This place is great for a casual dinner or a date! Delicious food, good drinks, and Manning lighting.
The food comes out VERY SLOW. The average tasting food is a over priced. I would not go again
Poke bowl tasty; Pad Thai especially good, so was spicy tuna on crispy rice. Would've gotten 5 stars, but was there same night as obnoxiously loud b-day party.
Food was good and very reasonable prices. If you’re looking for just a casual spot for a nice meal it’s a place to go. We booked a table on Opentable and wasn’t showing in their reservation system and kind of made us feel not welcome at first, even though the place wasn’t even busy.
Usually good but service was show and food was mediocre.
Food and service was great the day before, at beginning of happy hour.
We reserved big table for 7 for BIRTHDAY the next evening, a Wed. I had explained that one or two of the party would be arriving a little later. They said that was fine that it wouldn't be a problem. Before I arrived, they had given away, part of our table, so we were cramped! 7 of us sat at a table for 4!
Food was great! Service, was absolutely the WORST we've ever experienced. They are miserably understaffed! Blame the manager/owner, not the staff. The servers would just take our orders and did give us water upon request, but they were extremely delayed in removing dirty dishes! We were not only already cramped, but surrounded with dirty dishes that should have been taken away!
18% tip was automatically included in bill. Smart of them, 'cause we would have never tipped that!
We will never return with a group!
Great ambiance - stayed a good amount of time after finishing the meal because it was so chill. Service was excellent. The flavors were impeccable. All around delicious. Will definitely be back and will bring others along!
Good value for Dine LA. It is probably the best Dina LA set I ever had. Usually, restaurant does not care the quality of the Dine LA menu. Rize made a great Dine LA work. However, the fish sushi here is not that fresh. I would go to little tokyo to have a real sushi meal. In santa monica, it is not bad but not great. Worth for the try under Dina LA.
We went for DineLA event! The food was horrible and the service was slow. It felt that they were forced to participate in the event. The choices I had in the menu was eh! My husband ordered from regular menu, the food was better.
The sushi was warm but tasty. The chef forgot to put the noodles in my ramen! This place is a funky neighborhood spot. Nothing fancy but O.K. If you don’t have any other sushi place.
I had been craving sushi and Thai for the last few days so I found this place on line. It had favorable reviews, prices and was something new for me to try. I'm glad that I found this place. My first impression of this place is that they have great food and ambiance! The vibe is casual but cool. They had hip hop and R&B music playing just loud enough to keep the energy off the restaurant lively but low enough to engage in conversation. With TV's, a bar and higher tables they have good seating options for everyone.
Our reservation was for 7PM so we just missed their Happy Hour. They had some great options on both sides of the MENU and the prices were reasonable. One side had Thai dishes, salads and the other had Sushi and drinks if I recall. Every table we saw what appeared to be good dishes and drinks. I ordered a Thai Iced Tea, Yellow Curry 🥘 Chicken/brown rice and a spicy Tuna Roll. My girlfriend had Fresh Lemonade, Rize Biscuits (Crispy rice with spicy Tuna) , Bre's hand roll. The couple sitting at table next to us had a dessert so we ended up ordering the same because it looked so good we had to try it. It was their Yuzu (Japanese lemon) cheesecake. It was so good and the perfect size to share but not overindulge
We both enjoyed our shared selections and were already discussing what we would try upon returning.
In my opinion Rize did Rise to the occasion. Whether you want to grab dinner with friends, coworkers for a happy hour, or just planning a date night you won't be disappointed. Their fusion is not confusion it's just good food and service. I wasn't a fan of the lighting in there though. They have Edison bulbs and a few TV's but since the sun sets on the west the daylight wasn't helping too much as it got darker outside. I still would suggest this place though and will definitely look forward to returning.
The sushi was kind of warm and the service was a little cold. Kind of the opposite of what you want with sushi LOL came for the Tuesday happy hour all day. Drinks were really great!!!! Menu was not the easiest to follow for the happy hour specials. I would go back just hope the sushi would be gold and not mushy
Love this place! Great food and ambiance! It's perfect for any occasion whether you want to grab dinner with friends, planning a special occasion or a date night!
Very very loud, food was good not great.
I am almost afraid to say how much I love RIZE because being as small as it is if they get too crowded I might lose this neighborhood gem. But seriously wonderful for those who love Asian Fusion and a good selection of small and large plates. Overall...a huge YUM!
Amazing service! DK is one of the best chefs ever! Always fresh sushi and great service!
Yum. Delightful in every way - good ambiance. Only down side very light pour on the wine....
Poor customer service, rude, unattentive
A rainy Friday night but an absolute great find! Definitely coming back next time in town.
They delivered a great food experience and will for sure come back. This seems to be a local place since I saw a few couples wearing flip-flops, and surf-shorts.
Love this local spot, with a varied menu. Great fish and vegetarian dishes. I loved the curry and Angry Edamame. Lemonade also a refreshing treat.
I read a good review about Rize. I went to their website. That left me with the impression they didn’t serve alcohol so I brought a bottle of a wine that I produce. I am serious about Sushi so I would never eat it in a place like Rize. I was interested only in their Thai dishes. I have better versions of the selections I made at places like Celedon. Also, they did serve alcohol and their wine selections were bad quality and over-priced. I felt I shouldn’t open my own Rose since they had one on their list. I know they pay under $10 a bottle for it but they charge $52 for it! I waited 40 minutes before my wife and I received anything we ordered. It was a big mistake choosing Rize.
We were visitors to LA and found this place on Open Table as we were looking for good Japanese food at a more reasonable price than in the tourist areas. While we needed to get an uber here from Santa Monica pier (too far to walk) and the restaurant is on a busy road - it was worth the effort. Inside has a nice feel and the food was great and at reasonable prices. My daughter has coeliac disease and the staff were very helpful in us selecting the right dishes and delivered gluten free soy sauce to the table.
went for dineLA. Food was awesome, a little overpriced. I've already recommended, their lunch menu looked legit.
Came with family for sister's birthday dinner. The meal was delicious, and the atmosphere cozy and warm. Only problem was a couple dishes that came out much later than the others, but the food was excellent and the prices were reasonable.
not only was the food pretty but it was also tastey
Nice combination of Thai and Sushi. We concentrated on Sushi which was both excellent and had some inventive choices. I'll be back with my family that contains sushi lovers and haters because everyone will be pleased.
You have not credited me with my points! That's unacceptable. Please correct the points with last night's visit
