Good lunch

Great sushi - try the devil roll. Overall, we had a good lunch and would go back. The service was average. Our bill was 43 dollars and I put three twenty dollar bills in the bill holder thing. She took it and disappeared. She never brought us any change or asked if we wanted change. We eventually... read more

Great live entertainment on the weekend. Nice vibe outdoor seating. Great service and excellent seafood and sushi. A bit pricey but worth it once in awhile. Close to the wharf.

I definitely stuffed myself at this place...appetizer of sushi and stuffed chicken was awesome! The atmosphere and wait staff was awesome!!! The menu provided a small array of options for beer but the food menu was sizable (lol) Casual place, romantic night or a business affair Mahe is nice for all occasions.

Had a decent meal. Server was very nice but not knowledgeable about the menu. She couldn't even tell me which sushi rolls didn't have crab in them. One person ordered sushi as main course and it came to table at least 10-15 minutes before everyone else's main course.

We went with 4 adults and 2 toddlers. We had reservations and they seated us no problem. The place was busy on a Friday night, but service was excellent. We had sushi appetizers and then ordered fish from the menu. The sushi was quite good and the fish was well prepared and presented. I would go back.

After much thought I have to post this. Locale is great. Service was very good. Food was just okay. Music via Pandora ( per manager ) was broken. So what we listened to were multiple artists using derogatory turns and loudly. Even my son found it disturbing. Did this affect my appreciation of any of our dishes? Possibly. When I... More

My first time at Laguna beach and I tried this restaurant . It was super delicious and the entire staff was so friendly that I had to go twice . Seafood menu is what I tried with delicious entrees and had no problem deciding what I want . Will go every time i am in that area .

Unbelievably unique rolls and the freshest fish on the coast! I truly cannot pick my favorite dish! The clam chowder is the best you will ever have! The shishito peppers are so addicting that you may not share! The sushi chef makes the best salsa which he tops many rolls with. I usually order a side of it! There are... More
