A wonderful casual dining experience in the heart of Downtown LA. Inbetween two major shopping areas, across from the 7th/Metro subway station. Very zen decor and feel, dimmed lighting at night, cocktail lounge and sushi bar in rear. Food is fresh, tasty, good service and a good bang for the buck! Menu has good selection with variety: sushi, meals, soups and plenty of California rolls. Rainbow Roll and Late Night Party rolls are packed with flavor! Look forward to our next visit...

Everything was fine but it appeared there was one server for the entire lounge area. So that meant one waits to get served or long intervals Edie’s the server could get back to you. I ditched my reservation to take advantage of the happy hour so I’m not talking regular table service.

Wokcano has always been a backup plan joint. If we can’t find anything else then we hit up this place. The ambience is dark and romantic the staff are busy bustling around but they will pay attention to you if you need help. So it isn’t a biggy og they have a packed house. Food is awesome if your undecided on what to eat well there is plenty to choose from off the menu. They have a sushi bar, hot stove kitchen and also Bbq Japanese style.

Ambiance is business lunch with some sophistication. Excellent food choices and portions, from appetizers to main courses. Wait service was professional and put us on the right track for quantity of food and suggested consensus favorite items from the menu. While main course items are intended for one person, they can easily be shared between two people or more.

We had a nice time, our waiter was excellent and the food was very good, but the hostess did not mark my Opentable reservation as attended. We were one of only two parties in the bottom level of the dining room by the window when we arrived early on a Sunday night. So I suspect that, even though I told her we were a party of four from Opentable, she simply took us as walkins and ignored her OT app. This is always very frustrating because then I get one of those emails from OT that I flaked on my reservation (something I have never done) and how this could negatively affect the restaurant's business. So I'm irked on this place and in no rush to return anytime soon.

I've been to the Los Angeles location several times; however, I've noticed a decline. Dirty silverware and no air conditioning the evening I visited. That had fans on chairs trying to cool the restaurant down- wasn't working.

Food and value were great, but it was unbelievably hot inside. I'm not picky with restaurant temperatures, but this was so bad we had to get our food to go and warm it up at home, because we were sweating too much to enjoy anything.

Overall the food made up for the service. The front desk did not have our reservation ready when we arrived, but it's OK we hit the bar to await our table but 20-25 mins flew by and no one called us. I proceeded to the front desk but for some reason, our reservation could not be found after they told us it wasn't ready so that was quite odd and the front desk looked clueless. There was one employee though who ended up taking care of us so that kind of made up for the rocky start. The server was excellent and attentive to that point and the food was great.
