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

The oysters were huge and fresh. The sushi rolls we tried were unique and very tasty. We are going to go back again for sure our... More

My wife and I had lunch here, sharing a mixed Sashimi platter. The fish was very fresh and tasty. That is all we had, but it was perfectly good. We sat in the outdoor patio, but there is plenty of indoor seating as well. The restaurant is in a small mall near the beach, with no view to speak of,... More

Make sure if you make your reservation online that you specify that you want "inside" if you do not want to sit on the patio. We went for the first time with a 6:45 online reservation and were told we had to sit on the patio (even though I questioned it and was not happy about it). It was a... More
