Is it Art or Is it Food?

Luckily it’s both art and food. Dishes are presented so beautifully though you stop to wonder if you should eat it. Believe me, you should.

The grilled miso chicken wings are to die for. The simmered pork with white peach, served in porcelain spoons, works better than the sea bass paired with white peach. The soup served in a Zen tea pot was a revelation both in service and taste. Very simple flavorful broth and a few mushrooms. The tomago was the second best I’ve had, not quite pound cake-like, but transcendent of egg. Sauteed shishito peppers, sea bass in lettuce cups, all tasty.

Love the balance of cooked and the raw, and the variety. Menu is a novella.

Prices are high, portions small, waitstaff friendly. Place is small, gets very crowded so make reservations.

I will have to give it another try

I have heard sooo many good things about this place, so I was really excited to try it. If you are looking for your regular americanized sushi, stay away… this place is all traditional and they specialize in Japanese cuisine, not “sushi”

the food was good… but it was the attitudes of the waitresses that left a bad taste in my mouth. They think they are more important than the chefs. Don’t try to ask for extra sauce… oh no. they will straight up say NO. basically, the customer is NOT right in this place…

Unbelievable sushi

Ate at Asanebo last night and had a fantastic meal! We sat at the bar and asked the sushi chef to give us the best choices for what was in season and we were not disappointed. Some very unique options including some smoked sweet fish,…

Asanebo

This place is a bit pricey but i really like their Rock Shrimp Tempura and Kanpachi Sashimi with Miso Paste and Jalapeno. I have been here a couple of times and have had a good a experience.

Overpriced and overrated

Having been to most of the Japanese restaurants in the area and in SoCal, I was very disappointed with the meal. We were a party of 4 and spent $400 on dinner and were all hungry even after dinner (we are skinny people too!). I have…
