The dinner was specially prepared by Rain for us. The meal was excellent. The texture and blend of flavors were exceptional. Great find in Venice, California.

Managed to get a last minute reservation after having tried walking in the night before. Gorgeous decor and beautiful table settings. Food was good - eggplant was definitely the highlight. Tenderloin skewers, whilst cooked to perfection, lacked any resemblance to Japan. Unique Japanese beer list,...More

Returned to this restaurant after visiting a few years ago and was impressed by the makeover inside it is beautiful. Very busy and fast paced but we didn't feel rushed. Great service.

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

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.
