Wabi Sabi is a scene, for sure, but for good reason. The hanging plans and eco chic ambiance give a chill vibe, even amongst the madness of the post work crowd. If you sneak to the back sushi counter during off hours, the sushi chef...More

The food and the service were both very good. However it is pretty pricy. We are from Switzerland (where eating out is pretty expensive) and we found the prices to be equally high. The place is very trendy, so make sure to make reservations.

Highly recommend everything on the menu - we were blown away by the flavours and the freshness of the seafood. The setting is really nice with hanging plants, beautiful table-wear and friendly wait staff. Great for a long lunch or dinner.

This is a reliably good restaurant that serves up quality sushi and cocktails in a trendy vibrant environment. The only minor flaw is that the dish collecting staff are always scanning the tables to remove what they think are finished plates or glasses and they...More

Had the pleasure of coming here for dinner. Provides top quality and exciting sushi dishes in a great setting. Staff were very friendly and helped suggest some of their best food. One of our best meals during our stay in LA!

We popped in for a quick drink and sat at the bar. Beautiful lighting, great music and atmosphere. Bartender was excited to suggest and prepare our drinks which were perfect! Would definitely recommend it!

Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Description
Wabi Sabi gets the Freshest fish and honors the ingredients while adding complimentary flavors like white soy, shiso and fresh seasonal fruit. Chef Rain says ,"Fruit is to sushi as butter is to French cuisine. Amazing". Wabi Brunch is unique and Delicious. Customers Love the designed interior by architect Sam Marshall which makes Wabi Sabi a stand out on the Abbot Kinney strip.
