Took my women's group out for dinner here last night. Everything worked out great. Comfortable table, not too noisy, excellent service, great choice of food for people with different palettes, delicious food, and yummy desserts. We were there on Wednesday so were able to buy a bottle of wine for 1/2 price, after getting a chance to test a few bottles up front. All in all, it was a great meal and everyone loved it.
Akasha is a gem, festive space, beautifully prepared food, fresh ingredients, and lovely wait staff.
Wonderful food and service..
I'd advice the busboys to slow their roll .. A bit too quick to clear our plates.
Birthday celebration! Salads were fantastic! Delicious desserts!
Everything was fantastic. We have been here a number of times, and are always very happy with the food and service. Highly recommended!
The food was good and the design of the restaurant interesting.
The food was excellent and the service was very good! Definitely worth the drive from Long Beach!
Unhappily, I'm writing to complain (and sounding like a bore) about a place I like.
My wife and I have previously enjoyed dinners at Akasha and, but for the bad acoustics, would probably go more often because it's nearby, a very attractive space, and offers quite good food at reasonable prices. We went early for brunch on Saturday with another couple and had reserved a table in the corner which we knew to be quiet, and would give us the chance to talk privately. It's a huge room and we were the only ones there at 9:45am. Then the percussive music went on. When we asked the waiter if it might be turned off or, at least, turned way down, he said he'd take care of it - and he did. When our food arrived there were only three of our four orders delivered. As the waiter walked away, we assumed the fourth order was to follow - and we were distracted because, with the food, the music was turned back on, louder and more percussive. We were still the only ones in the room. I went to the bar to ask the bartender if he could comply and he said he didn't have the controls. When I asked who did, I was told the manager. I then had to ask where I might find the manager. When I found her and asked about the music, she replied, "well, I have reservations." I pointed out "we are your reservations and currently the only people in the room." She seemed bothered by my response, but not looking at me said she'd turn it down. Eventually, she did, and when I returned to the table and my meal I discovered my wife's meal was still undelivered. I went and found the waiter who said he'd take care of it. Her meal was served later - and, without my asking, he took her order off the bill which I told him I much appreciated. Mistakes happen. People have bad days. But in a good well-run restaurant I think it's unprofessional when the manager and others not only lose track of you, (especially if you're their only customers), but act displeased when you have a reasonable request. I'm just sayin...
Great service. Tasty Greek salad but chairs were very uncomfortable.
I've been frequenting Akasha for many years now. It's great farm to table food, delicious and consistent. The menu changes with seasonal ingredients. The dishes are varied and interesting with enough choices even for the pickiest eater. The atmosphere is perfect, enough of a buzzy vibe without being too much. One can talk and enjoy each others company. Service is always stellar. This is my go to neighborhood restaurant. Akasha and Alan know how to run a restaurant!
I've been going to Akasha for years so I was shocked by the how bad the food was this time. Everything had no flavor. Also, it took almost 20 min to get one scoop of ice cream not to mention they were out of numerous items that we had wanted to order. Terrible experience. So disappointing.
The service this past time was not on par with my past visits although I have normally gone to Akasha for lunch, not dinner. Our waitress was not all that attentive and she purposefully switched the wine she served one of my friends without notifying her ...
AKASHA is a great restaurant. A great assortment of food that will rock every taste palette. I love coming here. Great spot for meetings and connecting with friends/family. All the staff are friendly, service is efficient, and food is always flawless.
sorry but we didn't enjoy the food ! my guest didn't want to complain but if i was by myself I would
we will not come back
you need to work on your dishes !
Love this place, they always have great specials - this time we tried the Eggplant Fries with Kung Pao sauce, they were delicious. Also, their Rice-Flour Onion Rings are sooo crunchy and satisfying.
I got the Veggie Burger with salad as my entree and my boyfriend got the Turkey Burger, both were good but those starters stole the show.
Nice ambiance, attentive staff, very good overall.
Our server let us taste 3 wines. The cauliflower is amazing, would absolutely come back.
Such slow service. Maybe they were short staffed.
The host was a complete disaster. There was literally no one at the front desk for 10min. When he did arrive, he was completely frazzled, had no menus, took forever to work his way through the line of guests waiting. When we did finally make it to him, there was no greeting, no smile, no welcome. Made us feel like we were a burden for him. Almost left that instant.
When he did seat us, he disappeared saying he would try to find us menus. Never returned. At some point a waiter approached us and ask if we had seated ourselves! Another charming introduction.
The hostess was very disconnected emotionally, apathetic.
The waiter was gruff and unaccommodating.
The restaurant seemed dirty and noisy.
I asked the waiter for the Bali Seafood Curry dish, but without scallops. He indicated that it was ok to order the dish without the scallops. I then asked him if they would just give me a few more shrimp in place of the scallops and he said no, they would not. The plates have portioned ingredients.
When I received the dish, it was mostly leafy vegetables, overall a small portion, and the curry was thin but tasted good. The dish was overpriced for the content and the size.
I went there for a special occasion and felt cheated.
This was my third time in this establishment and will be my last.
Great food and service. Perfect brunch spot. Now overly crowded. Definitely will come again :)
We were here for Sunday brunch. The space is nice, the atmosphere was lively, the service was attentive, the food was fine. Our table of six agreed that the only truly outstanding dish was the shakshouka; the chilaquiles were disappointing--bland. We asked for hot sauce and were brought bottled hot sauce.
I go to Akashas about every other month. The food, drinks, and service are consistently good!
Nice place and close to work. The food was good and the service was wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable and knew the menu well. I would recommend AKASHA to my co-workers and friends.
Great surprise with the Jazz trio! Food and service were great!
Service was not good. We waited for 15 min before anyone came to take out order.
Didn’t get the wine I ordered at the beginning of the meal until midway through the main course. Food was very mediocre, portions small. Won’t go back.
Met a friend from out of town. Ran into another there!
Great food and fun place. Did not appreciate getting an additional $4.95 charge on the bill for 'kitchen appreciation'. We were all surprised and left a negative feeling at the end as we tip well anyway.
Food was good nothing to write home about, Branzini fish came without any kind of accompaniment and was around $37. No bread offered like most restaurants complement. My biggest complaint is that our server did not mention the “half bottle of any wine” special they had the night we were there as my daughter and I debated which wine to start with. A glass starts at $15 -17 .Would def had ordered a bottle had she mentioned it!
This restaurant is truly a neighborhood gem. Always good food and good service. On Wednesday they have 1/2 off any wine on the menu and they are always updating the menu but still have the excellent old stand by's.
Such a good brunch
Love the cafe side with bakery goodies
Happy hr is a great time too
Excellent food and service.
Great hip spot for lunch or dinner. I love going there and introducing people to it.
I wish I lived in Culver City so I could eat at Akasha more often! Great food, interesting without being weird, and totally delicious. Service was spot-on -- personable and professional. Always a fine evening when I go here, can't recommend it enough.
I was hungry an hour after i ate here. I am not a big person or a big eater. I ordered Shakshouka for brunch. It was not a baked egg dish, as the menu discribed. I got a frying pan full of stewed tomatoes with a tiny fried egg on top, a tiny amount of goat cheese, and some arugula on top of that. Grilled bread on the side, which i wanted to avoid, but ended up eating just to get some food in my stomach. Coffee is marginal, at best.
3rd time here. I keep thinking it should be better than it is, but it never is. Last time, i got 1 unimpressive waffle with a small amount of compote on top. There won’t be a next time for me.
Our server was awesome. Accommodating and attentive. Worked with a smile. Great experience
Lovely evening. The live music was a nice bonus. Service was good.
My only issue is that the restaurant cancelled my reservation about 30 mins before it was to take place and then told my companion that I cancelled it. (He arrived first)
Akasha is a solid. Always great food, handcrafted cocktails, quality ingredients, buzzy atmosphere.
The scallops were wonderful. Great food and wonderful atmosphere.
