    The food is delicious, the staff needs a lesson in basic manners. The host and Maitre D are lovely, but the waiters (multiple of them) really don’t want to hear from you or speak to you. No one waiter is responsible for bringing out all your food, it’s a rotation of them, so if you have a question or need yours for whatever reason - good luck. The ambiance is super cool but also really strange is the amount of security just roaming about the restaurant? I’ve never seen mall cops just openly surveil a restaurant going in between tables and stuff before. But the booths are cute and the drinks are strong so def worth the try.

    Our dining experience Saturday was not at the level of prior visits and was disappointing. While the food was innovative, the same dishes we’ve had in the past were not as impressive as we expected. Our server had little to no personality. For the price, I expect excellence in service.

    had 2 share dishes, yellowtail and ava no.5. price was $54 and they tasted similar, decent but not exciting. Also had midnite Rain,at $30, I think we paid for the gold flecks on top. The shrimp inside was not tasty, we could not eat the roll. The sea urchin was delish and presented great. I dont think I want to go back unless its just for drinks, it looked like a nice bar.

    They forgot to bring my meal. No one acknowledged it. I confronted the server and he said he “forgot to tell me” that they were out of what I ordered. The rest of my party was finished eating so I left hungry. I was not offered a replacement meal either.

    They don’t allow dogs into their patio. Main reason I booked was to dine with my dog at their patio was disappointed and placed on the sidewalk tables which don’t have the same ambiance. Food was good, but not at a level where I would revisit any time soon.

    Wabi on rose was fantastic! Service staff was super friendly and accommodating 😀 Ambience was perfect 😍 Food was fantastic 🤌 Believe it or not the Apps & Deserts were way better than the sushi. Sushi was great but didn't come close to their Squashy Dish, Brusslels, GF Desserts 🤤 Come enjoy this slice of Venice Beach Life soon, you won't regret it!!!

    Wabi has a great location, great food and crowd. Unfortunately the service is really really poor… our server was sarcastic and impertinent the entire time, not willing to answer any specific questions. Moreover the 20% of gratuity was already included on the check, we had no options. We are a big group of friends, we hang every weekend and we spend an average of $100/$150 per person. Not willing to spend our time and money in a place that doesn’t care about customer service.

    Wabi on Rose has been my go to spot since moving to LA two years ago. The bar drinks are always on point… try the Old Fashion!! The Brussels Sprouts, although a side dish, is a great stand alone, especially with an Old Fashion😀 I have tried every Sushi roll and still can’t decide my favorite. From the greeter to the wait staff… the service is excellent!

    We would have loved to have eaten there but our server was rude and after bringing us water let us wait over 20 mins without coming back to take our order. He was serving other people at nearby tables but completely ignored us. After 20 mins waiting to give our order we walked out. Will never try it again.
