It's hard to review when it comes to seafood especially in LA. I am spoiled in my hometown but this place is conveniently located in the heart of Ktown and offers variety of options. Oyster was fresh and their uni pasta was pretty flavorful, Price is somewhat mid range. Not bad to grab a quick bite or casual dining.

We got there right before 4p on a Saturday afternoon to a pretty empty restaurant and it was full 30 min later. Our server was great, room temp waters (cold day) served 2 seconds after we were seated. There are plenty of good food on the menu to choose from. We ordered a garlic pasta, crispy soft shell crab sliders,... More

Our server was outstanding. She was intelligent, helpful, and attentive. Specialty of this place would be oysters, One member of our party had oysters and loved them. Crab rolls, shrimp rolls and lobster rolls are pretty good. (small but good) This is good seafood and portions are reasonable.

Lovely fresh oysters-- so delicious!! A meal in itself. Also recommend the garlic... More

I really want to give it 3 stars until happy hour kicks in then it is 4 stars. Clean. Somewhat trendy. Young. We were seated with insufficient amount of menus. We were not told there was a late happy hour after 10 pm. We arrived around 9:45. We may have changed our choices. We ordered salmon and squid carpaccio. Both... More

Santa Barbara fresh uni is world class, better than most I've tried in Japan and elsewhere. Uni is super fresh a great value. Better than the Redondo Beach seafood market. Just take off a star as the pasta was not perfectly al sent, but still great dinner.

We went there for a nightcap and ended up having the oyster late night special - reasonably priced oysters (chef's choice) and other items are on the bar menu. On a Wednesday night a very popular and busy place, great vibe, nice bartender, good cocktails. Oyster were o.k. but a bit bland - probably better if you go for the... More

Doing a Google search for restaurants close to the hotel we were staying at showed this one. We walked in and it was busy! The hostesses were friendly and seated us promptly. Our waitress was smiling and friendly and answered all of our questions without missing a beat! 😊The menu was a single page but more than enough to satisfy!... More
