I didnt order sushi, but the salmon I ordered was really good. Drinks were very, very good. Service was outstanding. However, the prices are a bit high.

Very nice meal enjoyed with our family. We sat outside and watched the sun setting over the ocean. Sushi options were standard fare and quite good but the pork belly was amazing. 2nd visit in as many years....consistently good.

I was eating dinner here with mye girlfriend. I ordered "chefs speciality" of 8 different pieses of nigiri sushi. 7 of the 8 pieses tasted ok minus. The last bit looked like some king of roe. And this is the worst thing I have ever tasted. The piece must have been rotten and tasted just awful. The price was also... More

Popped in for a late lunch. Staff were accommodating and service was quick. However, the sushi was tasteless. Didn't seem at all fresh.

Very nice evening and very good food. It was a Friday night and there was a football game on so while we waited for our table (there was a short wait even though we did have reservation but it was fine, nice bar and we ordered a great bottle of unfiltered cold sake which we took to our table) and...

Nothing bad to say but nothing memorable about this visit. I went for lunch and get a bento box special, which was a good value compared to ordering off the regular menu.

The Salmon Sashimi Carpaccio with Soy Truffle Oil is a must try! It melts in your mouth! I only wish I would have ordered two, as I have been craving it ever since I left. I also ordered the Yellowtail with Diced red & green chiles, which was also delicious. If you are looking for fresh fish, you won't be... More

Dined in the Atrium area. Server would disappear for ever and it was difficult to order and to get her attention. During dinner, we noticed Cock Roaches outside and then realized they could creep under the enclosure and cozied up under our table. We watched in amusement at them scattering on the pillar outside the window, some where huge! When... More

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.
