Very fresh outstanding sushi. The service was PERFECT.
Poor customer service! We had reservations and they did not take us in. If they don’t want to take customers in 30 minutes before closing they should not have reservations available.
Everything was good but services was so bad it made the whole experience just blah. Had dinner on 6/19/2021.
Was just as good the second night!
Buena opción de sushi en Downtown LA, nada extraordinario, solo destacar el "Uni Burrata", excelente combinación y sabor.
Food was great, the servers and security guards very nice
From the doorman to all the waitstaff and the food. All on point!!! Even better than pre COVID which I can honestly say has been my only experience like that. Delicious food! Lively vibe. Bravo!
AMAZINGGGGGGGGGG!! Seriously everything was great!
Mediocre sushi. Not as elevated or “sophisticated” as promised by the restaurant via social media. Apps were good though, the crispy tuna became the star of the meal rather than the main. Generous roll servings for the hungry, but a barely-there portion for their sushi nigiri which I guess is perfect for those who are dieting or only want a small sliver of taste. Drinks are good. Service good. Not sure if I’d pick this spot again. You’d be better off at Sugar Fish by Nozawa.
The food was subpar and the service was lacking.
I’m sad our waitress got off before I could ask her name. She was phenomenal. She knew the menu frontward and backward and gave us wonderful recommendations based on our preferences. Suffice the day, the food was absolutely perfect. We had the red snapper (so tender) & yellowtail belly sashimi + the firecracker shrimp (to die for), the soft shell crab (perfectly crunchy with a wide variety of robust flavor), the creamy langostino roll, and the HOT & something roll (based on her recommendation and was my favorite roll). The beginning of the night was more date focused so it was peaceful with great ambiance. As the people leaving clubs started filing in w large groups later that night @ 10:20ish, we decided to leave. Overall wonderful experience though.
A really wonderful restaurant for quality sushi. Painstakingly and artfully prepared, their sushi is virtually perfect in taste, texture, look and creativity. The decor is somewhat minimalist, but sharp and neat, very modern. The service is very attentive and friendly, and very responsive. Competitively priced for sushi of this high quality.
Great service! The food came fast! The waiters were awesome and the drinks excellent!
Very nice place food was amazing very good quality sushi and fresh.
Nice place. Good food. Will definitely go back.
Wanted to try some place new and it was a great delicious meal
Awesome location in DTLA, fresh fish, great whiskey menu, and awesome outdoor patio. This was fantastic.
The food was great but the service was slow. It may have been to low staff but it definitely was a hassle to get someone’s attention. The server and busser were extremely nice though despite the slow service.
Love this place!! For myself and my husbands first time attending a sushi restaurant..let’s just say we will be coming back soon! Excellent service, tasty foods,
Extensive menu, fire pit, good ambiance, tasty food. However, understaffed - long wait time for service and bill.
Food was fresh and delicious. They have a great variety of rolls and fish. Service was amazing. Great cocktails! Highly recommend.
We had reservations for 9:30 and they told us last minute that they were closing early so instead of serving us quickly they decided to take 20 minutes before even giving us water much less taking our orders then I order yellowtail sashimi and I expected it to have japelenos on it, they didn’t. Only thing good I can say is how good quality the cut of fish it was, . Horrible service overall but maybe I was just singled out because there were some other customers who seemed to enjoy it.
Wait staff was a little over involved at the beginning.. had to come ask us if we were ordering multiple times because they didn’t give us enough time to look at the menu. Other than that, food was lovely.
Overall it was not as good as I expected. Food was alright but pricey.
So I set a reservation here for my girlfriend’s and I’s anniversary. We were 5 minutes late to the reservation but as soon we were helped out at the stand, we were rushed to order due to their last call. The server told us we have to order right away and it was our first time there, so she kept hovering around us to order. At this point I’m frantically looking at pictures and trying to choose random menu items that I’m familiar with. I asked her for suggestions on their best roll and she said Alaskan roll. Like REALLY?! On top of that, when my girlfriend asked for recommendations on and sake that’s creamy, she brought out a bottle that was clear and tasted horrible. Before we could even tell her that’s not what we asked for, she opens the bottle and pours into our shot glasses. The only reason why I didn’t get up and leave is because my girlfriend told me to let it go. The only reason why I put 2 stars is because the food alone was good, but other than that I would’t come again.
Good to be back at indoor dining. Service was bit slow for us to get our order in. Food was delivered on time and was tasty
Staff was eeeehhhh but food was GREAT.
Best sushi in DTLA. David and his staff are always amazing. Been going since they opened and I have yet to be disappointed.
Food had WAY TOO MUCH MSG!!! My friend and I were suffering after! The patio are was nice and service was great though!
Loved the restaurant. Service and food were great. I would definitely go back.
What a pleasant place! The patio is spacious. The food is fresh and tasty. The service is spot on.
The restaurant was amazing and so was the food and service! Will definitely have to return soon !!
Great fish, excellent service. Come here for the food. Outdoor patio has a fire pit and some heaters, but ambiance is nothing special
Good Vibe, good sushi, great drinks!- would definitely go again.
It took them more than 10 minutes to even NOTICE US at the door. When I asked one of the servers for help, I was told they were too busy to talk to me
With Covid it’s so hard to find a decent place to eat, especially when you’re from out of town. Went on a whim and overall a decent experience. Good food. Sake was great. Sushi was delicious. Would recommend this for a dinner or lunch!
Good food and ambiance. Service was a bit slow after all food was served. An automatic 18% tip was added with no disclosure. It’s fine but transparency would’ve been great. Overall I will return and recommend.
Great dinner! Drinks weren’t very strong to my taste but overall great experience.
Really loved the environment and my waitress was so knowledgeable and such a big help in choosing a great entree.
