Great food. Great service.

An elegant romantic place, great for couples. Incredibly delicious sushi, attentive service. Love the style and flavor both. A bit pricey so we save it for special occasions, we have never been disappointed yet.

On nearly every trip to LAX, that it is to drop friends off or pick them up, we always time our trips to stop at our favorite sushi place! It's well worth the detour! Their carpaccio platters are so amazingly fresh and tasty you'll want to try them all as we did! Their grilled octopus is also superbly well done!... More

My partner and I wanted to have a meal around 9:30 pm on a Tuesday night and this restaurant looked good... we wanted to sit outside and watch the passing parade. That was imperiously nixed by the young woman who told me that area was being closed for the night (even though it was full and had only one empty... More

The greeting was warm and friendly and the waiter was engaging with enthusiastic service. It's a busy place with way more style the substance. It's located on the Main Street across from the Pacific Ocean so you can enjoy a nice sunset when dining at the right time of the day. The sushi was just not good at all. It... More

The menu is simple and some of the dishes are not Japanese cuisine but they make it sound like a Japanese food. Seafood was not that fresh. Price is too expensive. Overall... its average.

The food was excellent, but what really made the trip was the service. Top notch from the moment we walked in.

Made reservations after reading reviews and thinking it was one of the best sushi spots in Santa Monica. I was not impressed to say the least. Extremely noisy, could not hear the person across the table half of the time. Food was just average, and I am being nice. Will not repeat.

Great service, awesome choices, and delivered to table with perfection. Wait staff had his best picks and they were the best! The hot Saki was way better than the cold. Love the eel

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
