The food was very good. Particularly the scallops. Unfortunately some of the table staff as very abrupt slamming things on the tabel and leaving without communicating. The bar got the drinks order incorrect and the manager was extremely rude when delivering the correct order. However the actual waitress was tentative.

The music is too loud to hear someone on your table speaking.

Service was excellent while seated, but our reservation (for a birthday dinner) was at 7:15 and we didn’t get seated until almost 8. If we didn’t keep checking in with the hostess, we wouldn’t have gotten seated in that time frame either. Amazing food, but a huge bummer of a wait beforehand (again, with a reservation). We weren’t the only ones either— they were way overbooked and overcrowded

We had a group of seven, and the only way they could accommodate us was to put us on the street, next to traffic. While the food and service were great, the ambiance was not; next time will opt to be inside the restaurant, which is an entirely different vibe.

Unhelpful host staff, 90min rule & tables stretched past the actual property and in the crosswalk all make me feel unwelcome and for the price It’s not ok. I’ve tried a few times and it’s always the same crap experience. Won’t be back.

We were seated over 30 min past our reservations. Yet they have a cancellation fee if you show up late. By the time they sat us we had order everything bc kitchen was closing. We ordered everything and one of our dishes never made it to the table. I feel like our server was overwhelmed and not able to check in on us as much as he should have

It was my bday dinner with my best friend and our first time going out together for a lavish dinner experience post COVID. Arriving was absolutely magical. I felt like I was in a movie, the colours, the energy. From the hostess - who my god is cuter than Kate bosworth in blue crush - to the busboy who was so attentive .. our amazing waitress, the bartenders and their amazing shirts, the host who was in head to toe denim and oozing with style —— everyone was amazing. Nice but not intrusive in any way. Just right. The music was loud and energizing but not too loud. The lighting was sick. The food WOW I was blown away! Everything really I loved it all.

Already had a reservation for this coming Saturday. Cannot wait. It’s for a very special occasion.

The food was overpriced but good. Ambiance was amazing. The service was mediocre at best, but maybe that's due to an increase in demand from LA's reopening, so I might give it another try.

The food was phenomenal! Super fresh and full of flavor. Unfortunately, we had less than a wonderful serving and eating experience. We sat at the high top tables by the bar. It was the last day for the hostess, so there was a group of friends who came to have drinks and chat. The servers who weren't busy gathered around their table and we literally had people sitting on the bench by us maybe 3 inches away and standing between the tables so they could all talk. In fact they were so close that one of the servers (not ours) bumped our table and spilled our soy sauce on the table which a bus person brought a rag and cleaned up. Then our server had a car issue...we think it was being towed...so he grabbed his backpack and proceeded to be seen maybe once more. We wanted to ordered alcohol and more food but struggled to get anyone to help us bc everyone was so interested in the hostess last day and our server's car issue. So after flagging down a bus person, we paid our bill and left. Won't be back bc of the experience but can say the food was amazing

They should eliminate tables on the side walk. Not the same as seating inside. Pandemic is technically over, we only sat on the sidewalk bc the wait for the actual restaurant was long (too many people at the door). Not planning to come back if I’ll seat my guests on the sidewalk.

Overall it’s got a good visual vibe. The issue was that it was my birthday dinner, and we asked the waiter to bring us a bottle of sake, and when the bill arrived it was $100 bottle. For four of us entire bill was $500 which we thought was way over what the dinner was worth. The restaurants good, but it’s super expensive and we felt like the waiter deceived us by bringing us $100 bottle of sake. We paid but we won’t be going back.

The food was really good
The place was packed but we had a great spot in the corner away from others - so it was nice and intimate.

We ordered:

• Crispy rice (4 pcs) which was perfectly crisp. There were two ppl in our party - so 2 pcs each was good for a starter
• Seaweed Salad - which was plenty for 2 people for starter
• Yellowtail Special - was really good sashimi! But a lil pricy at $27 for 6 pcs
• Feel the Rain - This roll was spicy and delicious - but again a tad pricy at $25

We ordered rosé - Love you Bunches
I wish the bottle wasn't double the price (at $65) of what it normally is ($20), otherwise we would have ordered a bottle instead of a glass each at $16.

At the end - we weren't left hungry which was good - it was the right amount for 2 people. Next might order one other item but it was definitely plenty for the two of us.

Overall, the food was really good and so was the service! Our waitress was really attentive but not annoying and super nice.

I would book again - it's not in the regular rotation, but more for special occasions.

Decor- amazing
Music- rockin ‘
Crowd- gorgeous and vibrant

Cocktails delicious , fresh and inventive - ask for watermelon and tequila special shot
Food - not sure as I only tried 3 items which were just ok

I think you go more for the drinks and vibe.
It’s definitely a scene but a Venice scene not a Hollywood plastic scene

Go early or you won’t get in.
Also when you make your Rez be sure to ask NOT to sit on the sidewalk. They have an inside patio so ask for that .

Miss the old wabi sabi but this makes up for it.
I just loved the evening- definitely fun
