This place was fantastic. The food was delicious. One of the best places we ate in LA. It's got a good view of the water depending on where you are seated and the service is good. Try the Tuna on rice toast and the chicken skewers.

Went to the bar rather than the restaurant. We had a mix of dishes from the barbecue and all were great. Loved the prawns with bacon.

I found the sushi here to be excellent. Decent wine selection, amazing saki menu, and a wide variety of dishes for everyone. It would be a good place to take friends who did not all love sushi, as they offer steaks, etc too. Hamachi serrano appetizer was wonderful - a sashimi dish that is truly excellent. It was terribly expensive... More

We had a lovely child-free date here. Delicious sushi rolls, amazing Shishito peppers and miso eggplant. A bit pricey but nice for a special occasion.

Interesting sushi place right on ocean avenue. Their number of rolls is limited vs other sushi places but overall good food. We enjoyed their pork belly appetizer (delicious), but their calamari app was a little chewy. We split a couple rolls: highlights- the shrimp tempura was really good, the spicy tuna definitely has a kick! Only one we didn't care... More

Nice relaxed atmosphere, great fish dishes. Let the chef decide and you'll be overwhelmed. Great salades, White sauvignon is great

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

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.
