“Wow.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We decided to drop by for lunch on our drive up the coast from LA to Napa (we stayed in Santa Barbara, Carmel, then finally Napa). It was last minute decision so we didn't have a reservation for Tuesday at noon. They didn't have any outdoor tables available but they gave us the outdoor couches in the lower bar area, which was still amazing. I must say that video with the blue water was beautiful! Along with the perfect on-point service, and amazing food.. definitely is one of my favourite restaurants! (And i've been to the Nobu in NYC 57th, London, Bahamas, etc, and this is definitely my favourite out of all of those). So good that we went back on the next Saturday for dinner when we came back from Napa. Dishes to get: Black cod! (Amazing), Yellowtail jalapeno sashimi appetizer, salmon sashimi, tuna tacos, etc. everything is great though!

“Great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We were a party of four with no reservation. We get there at 6:30 but the place was already crowded. We had a few delicious cocktails at the bar while waiting for a table outside. We had great sushis, great view on the ocean, and a cocktail on the house because the waiter had forgotten to order it in time. Good service, not as good as you could expect in that kind of place though.

“Great Fresh fusion of Japanese and South American”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Really excellent fresh food, excellent attentive service. Did I say excellent food, yep, every dish was creative, fresh and delicious. The location on the ocean is beautiful. The only down side is it is very busy and very noisy. Oh well just eat.

“Remarkable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

One of the best restaurants to eat in. The tacos are excellent so are the salads to start with. Black cod is good while the sashimi are very delicious. Very expensive but worth it.
