Best food in town
Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.
The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.
The appetizers are delicious.
Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.
Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived
Lost Another Customer. A friend & I went last night - 5:30 on a Friday and the place was empty, maybe a few people at the bar. Two girls came in just ahead of us and took the 2-person table in the bar area, which is the only area where you can have happy hour prices. We were told that in order to enjoy the happy hour menu, which we have done for years, we would have to sit at the bar because the 4-seating tables in this empty restaurant were reserved for any larger group which might come in at that early hour. Otherwise, we could sit in the empty restaurant and order full meals, no discounts. But we have always sat at the 4-seat tables with no 4-person minimum if they were available, first come first serve and in an empty restaurant at an early hour, there was nobody to serve.. So, we went up the street to Bad Sushi where happy hour is at any table in the restaurant and the food was much, much better, the prices were nicer and the people were charming. We saw that en was still empty when we walked by at the end of our Bad Sushi meal. Goodbye hostess with an attitude! Sorry En, but your hostess shouldn't turn away business. You've lost a long-time customer.
Decent Sushi. HORRIBLE SERVICE.. We have been going to En Sushi for years and now we can no longer go there. We have never been treated so rudely at a restaurant. We came in at around 9pm on a Tuesday because a friend was in town and we happened to sit at a table in the bar area and the bartender is the one that helped us since we sat in the bar area. This guy was so rude and condescending. He even told us he hated sushi. And he works at a sushi restaurant?! The guy even got into it with my husband because I said something to him. One of the waiters was so apologetic to us for the horrible service but the manager didn't even say anything. I think they're afraid of the guy. Like one of the other reviewers, I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO EN SUSHI OR RECOMMEND IT TO FRIENDS. I was so humiliated by the way the waiter treated me. My friend was so shocked with his behavior and couldn’t believe he had treated us as rudely as he did.
I wish, I wish all I ate was fish.. This is the somewhere I would take someone who said they didn't like or even hated sushi to convert them into a life-time lover of raw fish. It's actually that amazing. Friendly bartenders, nice atmosphere, but, most of all, INCREDIBLE FOOD. They offer a variety of rolls ranging from basic sashimi to more decadent cooked rolls, but, you really can't go wrong. And if you just can't behind fish, they have amazing dinners that include more basic, less intimidating items like Chicken Teriyaki and steak. Make sure you try the fried ice cream for dessert. Absolutlely the best!
Great Lunch Specials!!!.
En Sushi is a great lunch spot!! They offer different lunch specials (Bento Boxes, Noodle combos, Sushi combos) at very resonable prices. Most of the lunch specials come with a salad and miso soup.
If I remember correctly, they don't charge for hot green tea. Another plus. =)
I've never been to En Sushi for dinner but have heard that it can get pricey.
My favorite sushi restaurant in LA. I had dinner at En last night and again it was amazing! I have been going to En for years and it is consistently good. Their traditional suhsi & sashimi is fresh. They have simple rolls as well as wild rolls with different fish and sauces. My favorites are the albacore tataki sashimi, salmon sashimi, hurricane roll and the diablo roll. They have a number of different sakes to choose from, I love the Oka. It is a great ambiance, very LA. I would recommend this for friends or a date.
Great Food Poor Service. We went here on a Thursday night so the place was not crowded at all. We did make reservation just in case though. I ordered the Omakase and it was not expensive at all at $45. The fish was fantastic and very fresh. Everything was mouthwatering. This is a great sushi place. The only bad part was that our waiter ignore us for a good 20 minutes. He did not bring us one of our food and again ignore us when we were ready to ask for the check. Next time I may just sit at the bar.
Disappointment. I went to En Sushi with my family for dinner and was disappointed with the food. I ordered the Teriyaki Beef dinner and my family orders 2 other different kinds of set dinner. The dinner sets were not good and the portion was small. The only thing that was good we ordered was the spicy tuna roll. I went home feeling unsatisfied and hungry because the food was not good. However, this place has a cool looking bar and nice decor, I guess it is a place to go if you want to impress your date and pay for so so food. There are many Japanese restaurant in West L.A./Santa Monica for more reasonable prices and better food. I'd rather eat at smaller authentic restaurants that have good food.
Service?. Great place for a date but have the bar serve you. Also a great place for Happy Hour. The Bar and Sushi was awesome, can't speak for the restaurants service. The words "Excuse me" have no effect, so I recommend "Hey come here." Refill on your water, good luck. Expect things like "Oh you want extra what, of that's going to cost extra." Prices are not too bad, sushi and drinks (cocktail, premium) for two will run you around $90. Management at the restaurant is much like the servers, so don't bother complaining. Valet's $3.50 or save the money and park across the street at the supermarket.
Good Date Place to have Sushi. This restaurant serves fairly good sushi. The sushi isn't modestly priced but it also isn't ridiculously expensive. The decor provides a romantic setting for people on dates. It can get packed sometimes so I'd recommend making reservations.
