Slow Fish’s serves eclectic Japanese fare, including fresh seafood and much more. Its creative dishes are made with high quality ingredients. Slow Fish allows diners to relax while taking their time to enjoy their meals. Appetizers like baby octopus, mixed tempura, fried tofu and garlic edamame will tantalize the palate. Diners can feast on a main course of artfully prepared sushi rolls, several rice and noodle bowls and kitchen food such as grilled salmon teriyaki.
Slow Fish has a happy hour and offers specials, such as free ice cream with meals. It features a variety of beverages, including hot sake and draft beer. This restaurant has online ordering for delivery and pickup services.
Half sleek lounge-like restaurant and half cheap neighborhood sushi bar. The combination doesn't work especially if you are looking for nice ambience and a fun night out. Service was uneven and was not paced well at all - bringing appetizers and entrees at the same time. Why? And in the end the food wasn't that good. Oysters were inedible. Sushi rolls didn't really work. The famous black rice was nothing special. Overall just a disappointing experience.
I'd walked by this place many times and was always intrigued. It is well designed and their menu very enticing, and offered a lot more variety than a lot of sushi places. The food however, was just ok. We had the spicy tuna tempura roll, yellow tail, salmon and scallop sushi, basic udon, the salmon/mango/avocado dish and the ponzu Hamachi and over all everything was plated beautifully but just didn't quite hit the mark in terms of flavor. For the price I would go to sugarfish any day. We probably won't be back.
This is my second time at at Slow Fish and again had a great meal.
I had the Sushi combo the last time I was there for dinner and this time I was informed that the sushi combo is a lunch item not a dinner item. Little confused right? Since I had it for dinner the last time. Apparently dinner is all California rolls. So it should not be called a Sushi Combo.
Anyway still a good meal and of course I will be back.
Their sushi was amazing with quick service.
When we arrived at the restaurant, there was no hostess and a server greeted us. She seemed to be surprised that we had a reservation for 3. There were no tables available and she said there would be a 5-10 minute wait. Thirty minutes later I flagged down one of the two servers to remind her we were still waiting. We were finally seated about 40 minutes after arriving. Our appetizer and my beer arrived at the same time as our entrees. We never received two items we ordered. The servers were running around the restaurant like they didn't know what was going on. The whole experience was terrible.
I'm a Pescartatian and my date a Vegetarian . We had a late dinner and ordered, sushi combo, edamame, black rice, miso soup and tempura tofu. We were blown away at how great the food was.
Everything was flavorful.
We will definitely go back.
Best sushi in town and I love the ambiance. My regular go to place.
We had a 6:30 reservation on Saturday night. We had the oyster and uni, uni with quail egg nigiri, the miracle roll, the princess roll, scallop sashimi and toro sashimi and drank Kirin and hot sake.
Every piece of fish was fresh and chilled to the perfect temperature. The rolls were perfectly constructed as they didn't fall apart.
The service was very professional and attentive without being intrusive. Answered our questions willingly and accommodated any requests.
The prices were more than fair for the high quality product.
I am extremely pleased with Slow Fish's food and service. Such a lovely romantic restaurant.
I took a chance on a new place because I liked the menu, they described their black rice and I thought it was a novelty, but it's amazing, as was everything we ordered,this is my new favorite Resturant!
Finally stepped outside of my go-to sushi spot to find a more reasonably priced restaurant that doesn't sacrifice quality of the food.
Slow Fish met every need we had. Good sushi, great prices and good service. A must-go place to take advantage of their amazing happy hour prices.
Only downside is that some of their furniture seems like it needs to be tended to. The ripped seat cushions and the wobbly tables specifically.
This was my first time dining here and I must say the sushi was very fresh. They have great happy hour specials and I loved the ambiance.
Would definitely come back.
We went here on recommendation of my brother, who loves the place. Sushi was adequate, but nothing to sing high praises for. Fat Avo promised much more than it delivered.
Service was awkward; items arrived in random order with the fat avo--listed as an appetizer--arriving last.
happh hour was great here - the buddha belly, shumai, & spicy tuna on black rice are all solid.
Handsome, funky decor. Very basic and casual but pretty adventuresome and tasty sushi and sashimi. Some great and spicy rolls. Very nice staff and solid service. Moderate to moderately expensive.
The freshest fish in town as far as I'm concerned.
They serve black rice! Very interesting and delicious!!
We all had the Bento box. It was very good, a good value and a nice assortment of fresh sushi, salad and cooked fish. A nice place for a quick meeting as well.
We decided to try Slow fish as it was so close to LACMA, where we had just enjoyed an exhibit. The fish was excellent. The service was very friendly and the sushi arrived very quickly. We happened to arrive during Happy Hour so a few of the rolls were 1/2 off. Our final bill was surprisingly very affordable considering we had a couple of beers and a lot of really good sushi. I would go back for sure.
good food and friendly service. Was late for our Valentine's reservation thankfully the friendly staff was able to hold a table for us. Good was good at a good price. Will way here again
We liked this place -- the black rice sushi is super tasty -- but our server was illusive and we sat for over 20 minutes waiting for the bill long after we'd finished.
We often order Slow Fish delivered to our apartment and are quite happy with the food. However, dining at the restaurant was extremely disappointing. I had a reservation, when we walked in no one was at the host stand. I waited 5 minutes before I was greeted but was still optimistic...and then the server was like, "that's your table in the middle" and she pointed...seriously...so we sat ourselves while she went to get menus. Service was slow and awkward the whole time - I understand people have off nights but this was pretty ridiculous. I won't be dining in again and now I don't know if I even want to give them my delivery business. Overall 3 stars because of the food...that's it.
I brought my boyfriend to Slow Fish for his birthday dinner. I'm not a huge fan of sushi, but he is, and I had been to Slow Fish previously and enjoyed it. I was surprised to find the place almost empty during happy hour! My boyfriend got sake for $4, which I felt was quite a steal! We both loved our food, my boyfriend has even told people since that it's the best sushi he's ever had (I agree, though it's the only sushi I've ever really liked)! The service was quick and good. The only slight hiccup was that my boyfriend thought the dish he ordered was cheaper than it turned out to be on the bill. Not a big deal though - we just have to make sure we ask about the prices! Overall, excellent experience, and we'll definitely be back soon!
We really enjoy some of the different options available on the menu (Fat Avo) and the traditional lineup of sushi. The black rice option is also a favorite. Friendly staff and decent wines make it a good spot for a night out.
Expected a bit more from this place. We rolled up at 8PM and there were just 2-3 tables with people at them. The music was way too quiet, and the lights were way too bright, which made the overall vibe feel very awkward. The service was super weird and felt hurried. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco, and the waitress didn't pour it when she brought it to our table. They also brought a roll we didn't order. The prepared rolls we ordered were not that great, and neither was the Gyoza. The only redeeming part was that we ordered the fish they said was freshest, and the quality of the fish was very good.
Food was above par but not the best sushi I've ever had. The broiled salmon collar and the "hot city roll" were standouts. Service was attentive and server gave great recommendations. Good happy hour prices that go till 7pm...though the happy hour menu could stand to be a little larger.
I'd probably go back if I was in the area and hungry for sushi...not sure I'd especially seek this place out though.
This place had really good Sushi! Now I don't have to drive all the way to the Valley to get good Sushi and the prices were great also! A great addition to the neighborhood! Loved the Black Rice!!!
the black rice is amazing. The sushi and sashimi were fantastic.
Typical a great experience; however, they were short staffed delaying sercive and couldn't locate out confirmed open table reservation - sat us at a communal table. I still highly recommend this place.
In a convenient location and the black rice was a delicious and unique twist to the somewhat repetitive sushi found in LA.
The food was seriously awesome. Eat a lot of sushi, but Slow Fish definitely brings artistic and delicious cuisine to the table. Try the small plates!
Excellent sushi. Everything was fresh, tasty, and presented in an attractive manner. The restaurant was small and there was nothing remarkable about the ambiance, but the food stole the show.
Underwhelmed on most every level with this place starting with the confusing location and parking. The service was slow, the menu was plain and the food was not very fresh, especially for a Friday night when things should have been just delivered and moving.
Good food and sake list. Good date spot or double date, really enjoyed out time there. Tuna tostada for appetizer is really good.
The highlight of the meal was the "slow fish" roll. The rest of the food was pretty standard for a sushi restaurant. Our waitress was very genuine and tried to make our experience great (and she succeeded)! The florescent kitchen lights that spill out into the dining room detract from the great ambiance.
Make reservations on a Friday or Saturday night for sure. The food is so fresh & amazing.. The only down side is the noise level.
I now know why they call this place "slow" fish. The service was really bad. Our appetizers came 15 minutes AFTER the entree. No one asked if we needed anything else (napkins, another drink etc), they couldn't find our open table reservation, when the ball came, they had forgotten to charge us for our bottled water. We didn't realize, put or card to pay.... 10 minutes later, a waitress comes back with a revised bill. I found that to be in poor taste. A nice restaurant would have eaten the cost ESLECIALLY after all the other mishaps.
Never going back. Not recommending.
