This is my second time here in a 2 week period. The owner came by this last time and snapped a picture of my gang looking dapper and really made us feel welcomed and appreciated. They have very unique and eclectic flavor combos a step above your regular hole in the wall sushi spot. While still maintaining homage to your old faithful sushi options. Cocktails !!! Shall I say more. Great host, great staff, just a very good experience overall they’ve gained several loyal customers. Special shouts out to Kylie !!

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Wabi last weekend, just before outdoor dining closed in LA. They were following all COVID guidelines and we felt safe and comfortable. The service was top notch, really truly friendly people who seemed happy to be there. The food was, as usual, divine!

We took our teenage son for a sushi lunch to celebrate his birthday. Sushi and lunch specials were great. We tried a bit of everything. Sashimi choices were delicious and so fresh! We sat outdoors (heaters provided) nice ambiance and friendly service. Will definitely return and highly recommend!

This place has a great vibe. All sushi was delicious, but skip the skewers (not worth it). They are very strict on the time limit which is a bit startling but just be prepared for that.

I love this place. Went there on election night to celebrate my 50th. I was super stressed because we were running late, but they coudln't have been nicer about it. The food was amazing, as always, the staff was nice. Llove the new location. it's beautiful and I felt they took extra precaustions to make sure everyone was safe in the time of covid. Can't say enough wonderful things. 5 STARS!

The waitresses were really unprofessional and taking shots with one of the tables. The food was good but overpriced. If the service was better I could justify the prices.

To be reminded to go away after 90 minutes--TWICE, "to respect the CDC order" when you are enjoying your meal... was VERY annoying and disrespectful!

First time coming to the new Wabi on Rose (vs. the old one on Abbott Kinney) and I am a little disappointed. Food is good, but the quality seems to have gone down. The staff (hostess/waitress) are extremely rude and immature and the food is very slow to come out. It really makes the experience unpleasant. Overall, definitely not as good as it used to be.

My son struggles to find a good sushi roll. Most of the rolls he tried are rolled in thick Japanese rice- and that just kills all the flavor. Wabi is not like that- AND HE IS SO HAPPY that Wabi's rolls are not like that. So he made sure I save this place because we will definitely come back as regulars. I just wish there is parking- driving around for 20 minutes looking for street parking around a residential neighborhood was a real inconvenience.

One waiter took his mask off multiple times to socialize with tables. Not a covid friendly spot.

Great to see this restaurant move from Abbott Kinney to Rose Ave and take over the beautiful Makani restaurant space. Great cocktails and small bites. Runs about $75/person for dinner. Street side sitting is not ideal but they do have a few tables underneath the trellis.
Only issue kitchen must close early as server did not tell us at 10 pm so we missed out on having dessert.
