Our server was nice but was a little spacey and not super attentive. Was weird to be served sushi and be delayed by having to ask two other staff for soy sauce. Food was good but we’ve had better for the price. Loved the atmosphere and energy. Good retro music. Enjoyable lighting. A place to be.
Outstanding creative take on Japanese fish cuisine and amazing cocktails... flavor explosions... wonderful service. Signature dishes are exactly that and the Creme brulee is really very good.
Really friendly welcoming staff who knew their food and wine. We asked about the wine and were offered a taste - all four of us in our party, not just one of us.
Food was good quality, well prepared and served. It has a vibe and is great for a social night out. Tables are close to each other so would'nt be great for a business meal.
Def coming back
Great! Love the aesthetic and amazing selection!
Quirky sushi restaurant in a great little area. The food was delicious, delivered really quickly. There was a slight mix up with our order but we were given some free sushi to make up with it and the servers were extremely apologetic. It is quite expensive, not much more than other great sushi restaurant but not cheap.
One very cool place on Abbott Kinney. The front of the house is a standing room only bar, and the back is a casual, yet sharp dining room. Food is excellent from the miso cod to the fresh sashimi, seaweed salads and crispy rice.
Best vegan roll ever!
Everything about Wabi was perfect! We’re excited to call this our new neighborhood Japanese restaurant. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was just as good as we imagined (and heard).
Great ambiance. Food was delicious. Management needs to slow down a bit. Server rushed us to order but then rung up the wrong item, didn
Love the place but very loud and challenging especially when you’re on a date and trying to have an intimate conversation:) but the the food and service are excellent. A little overpriced but it is Abbot Kinney.
The waitress charged me and my friend triple the cost of our meal each and we have been unable to get in contact with the restaurant as they are being unresponsive.
We went for our anniversary and had the BEST time. The decor is on point, the food is fun and satisfying, the drinks were delightful — honestly we’re desperate for an excuse to go again.
The service and stuff are amazing but the food is ok
Although me and my husband live in Venice it was our first time here. I was a little taken back when the host told us we had about 1 hour to sit and eat due to “over bookings” we ordered mainly sushi so we were able to eat within 35 mins. Sushi was good , and server was very accommodating. It won’t be a weekly place or even monthly due to its high volume and and weird “over booking” situation felt rushed but may come back in the future only cause of the quality of sushi.
Good vibe and decent food. Good place to get together with friends
Wonderful sushi with lots of variety to satisfy both traditional sushi lovers and those who like American additions such as cream cheese. Friendly service. Delicious lychee cocktail! They told us ahead of time that the seating at a table is 2 hours; we had no problem with that.
We didn’t even sit down. We stood waiting for our table for 10 minutes. The staff did not even say hello they just looked us up and down rudely and carried on with what they were doing. It was so unwelcoming and pretentious that we left and ate elsewhere.
Great place to eat.
It was ok. Food good, noise level high, space between tables was beyond minimal so you are cramped and everyone is listening to your conversation. The only saving grace is the waitstaff. they are attentive and just terrific. Other than that, the only thing important is really your credit card.
This was a good, fun date spot. I chose this location for a first date and it worked out very well. Ambiance was great. I didn't order well but the hand crab rolls and spicy tuna crispy rice were good.
Very fresh and great tasting sushi in dark, ambient space.
The Venice cool crowd
I LOVE this place. Exceptional on every level. "The fist stinks from the head" and in the case, it smells deliciously good.
The food is incredible.
Wabi Sabi exceeded our expectations. We were visiting from out of town and took a chance.
The ambience was great, loved the decor, the service and food were outstanding.
Delicious, interesting preparation and delicate spices and flavors. Had the fried cheesecake as a
bday treat, Wow! Highly Recommend
Great sushi, great atmosphere, great everything. Highly recommended!
Dinner with my girlfriend! It was a great time and the food is always amazing
The food was excellent and very fun ambiance! We will definitely go back :)
Good food. Friendly wait staff.
We challenged the waiter by saying surprise us, we want 2 rolls and a grilled entree. All of his choices were AMAZING. I will most definitely be going back!
Had a spectacular 3 year Anniversary date!
Usually everything is amazing, service was not this time due to the holiday. My sister came in town for this meal, she loved the food and ambiance but our meal lasted over double what it should have in timing.
The food was fresh and very good. The scene was very lively.
Always good food, service and atmosphere at Wabi. :)
I would recommend this place for night out with friends as the atmosphere is very lively and energetic. However at this particular time I was a bit disappointed since I was looking for something less loud and little more romantic. The cocktails were good, however the food was just okay and so I wouldn't recommend the value.
Server and Manager were very helpful and we enjoyed having there presence. Food was good!
The food and ambiance was great. Felt a bit rushed by the services staff, but the food arrived in a timely manner.
Service was poor, sashimi was average, cocktail was average, remodel was pleasant.
Great looking location with the decor and a packed bar scene. The sushi just didn't equal the overall style of the restaurant. The crispy sushi rice was overall the best item we had.
Keep it strictly to drinks and an appetizer! High priced mediocre sushi. Pretty insulting, although nowadays people in Venice appear to be more concerned with looks than substance.
