    I recently visited this place with a group of friends and had a fantastic experience! The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming, even though it was a busy night. They made sure we received top-notch service throughout our meal. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the baked crab roll - a must-try! Plus, they were attentive to keeping our glasses filled with water. Overall, I highly recommend this spot for a great dining experience with friends!

    Very cute restaurant with amazing sushi special rolls. The Lychee on Rose cocktails are so delicious!Unfortunately, if you reserve the day of your visit you don’t get a good table and can’t enjoy the ambiance.

    The service was great from the moment I arrived, my friend and I got seated right away. The restaurant is a pretty good size with indoor seating as well as outdoor seating. This place is sooooo cute!!! I felt like I was having dinner in a garden. The most important thing is the food was DELICIOUS!! We ordered edamame, oysters, and their waygu dumplings to start, then mixed sushi and sashimi for our main meal. I will definitely be coming back!

    Wabi on Rose - always delicious. Cocktails also were great. Ambiance is excellent. We sat outside with heat lamps and it was perfect. The wait staff were attentive and helpful and nice and they did not upsell us which sadly happens too often when we eat out. Even though the website clearly says that you get the table for a specific period of time - we were not rushed. It was a lovely evening with friends and the food was delicious!!

    Went here for valentines with my boyfriend so they were understandably busy. Got a poor table right next to the speakers so it was very loud and right by a door where the staff was constantly moving in an out. Others were seated on the street in these booths that looked nice but seemed to feature a lot of interruptions as they were on the sidewalk. Glad I wasn’t seated there! Food was reasonably price for the quality and a nice night out. We had two appetizers two sushi rolls and something off the grill for about 100 bucks. Service was kind and accommodating to us especially on a busy night! Would recommend overall.

    Fantastic food and we had really enjoyed the place in the past. Good vibe. On Valentine’s Day we were suddenly treated differently - felt more like being processed. Not a good experience. Thankfully there are plenty of good places in the neighborhood.

    Great food and we were lucky to have quick in-house service but we had to wait a half hour past our reservation time and when we checked back with the hostess the third time they then said they text us but that never happened. We even verified our number when we checked in and nothing. We were frustrated because it was cold out.

    The sushi is really good, but the service is so poor. We eat all over town every weekend, and the first time you’re met with is the service - this service was really poor, especially the lady at the front. Almost annoyed at us for asking if she had any availability inside, as it was pouring down outside….

    Never been to Wabi on a Friday night but it was packed and we had a reservation but once we sat down we had to order two drinks at once everything was backed up and then food would all come at once with no place to hardly fit on the small little table. Service was pretty slow, but I understand.

    Very slow service yet they tell you upfront you have 1 hour and 30 minutes at dinner. Food is okay, not as good as other sushi places in LA. The environment is cute, but tries hard to be a vibe.

    I am not from LA. I was trying to find a cool place to take a client out for dinner. Going for sushi for business meals can be tricky. If the fish sucks it is a total disaster. In full transparency I even had couple other options a few blocks away in my back pocket if Wabi on Rose was not up to par. In the end Wabi did not disappoint. They had a great bar with a great spirit selection. The food was amazing. We ordered the Omakase tasting menu. If you go to Wabi for the first time I would highly recommend the Omakase. I've been eating sushis for decades. This was one of the most creative Omakase menus I tried over the years and it included a few courses I had never tried before. Hands down a place to go if you want sushi and are in Venice beach!

    We are lovers of Japanese food so thought we would try this new, to us, place. The food was interesting and varied, adding alternatives to raw fish for the one in our party who does not enjoy it. The Pad Thai was an interesting take on this Thai dish with delicious noodles, sweet and succulent shrimp and tofu. The shrimp tempura roll was disappointing but the crab roll was special. It is noisy to begin with and the added loud background music although it did not hinder our conversation.
