Lots of smiling staff who are helpful, we had the special chefs menu omskase. Incredibly fresh sushi great service great meals very noisy sitting outside I’m assuming quite noisy inside. Very good value, I’m not a fan of sushi ota I think that this could be one of the best places in San Diego County for sushi. Very creative, I think they should get rid of the shisuto peppers
It’s a good concept but a lot of the stuff lacked flavor. Sushi rice soggy. Fish not that good. A little bit of you get what you pay for with the prices but not for me.
The food here is unique. We had sushi rolls which were delicious, but we had never seen anything like them before. Other than the name, we really liked it and will be back.
We loved it!
Another killer awesome experience! We did the omikaze leaving the creative talent of the chefs to use their imagination. Chefs Loren and Alex did not disappoint! The quantity and quality of the food created in such a small area is amazing. Everything is a work of art that also is a great taste experience. One dish, a seared scallop topped with foui gras, exquisite sauce and a pinch of citrus salt was a standout! The texture and flavor profile were magnificent. Enjoy!
Our always favorite spot when my grown kids come down from LA.
Truly great food.
the food was fantastic, fresh and delicious and had it's own twist on it. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. The only one complaint I would have is that our waitress left her shift mid meal and the transition was poorly executed. The 2nd gal was nice but didn't come over and didn't introduce herself it was confusing and a little frustrating. Other than that, food was great!
Awesome as always!!! Thanks for making Mother's Day fantastic!!!
Best seafood in SD county.
Food was outstanding! Great vegan options too!
Resturant and food, as well as service, was Fantastic! Reservations through Made with Open Table SUCKED! I asked for seats at the bar and I was confirmed for same. After getting there I was informed those seats were not available! Not a happy camper. Will call direct next time.
Amazing & creative food... the best Sushi I have ever had...PERIOD!
As you leave W&R, you can't help thinking ahead to your next repast! Wonderful, eclectic creations!
I was recommended to this restaurant, and was really looking forward to this dinner after taking a quick look at hair menu online. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I expecting a more upscale, tradicional restaurant.
We started out diner with a ceviche sampler that the whole table disliked. The yellowtail was completely overpowered by the blackberry marinade they used and the other two whitefish ceviches were just ok! We order a few nigiri and without any of their sauces or marinades we could tell they use very good quality fish. But unfortunately their play on tradicional dishes are not well executed, taking away the beauty from the fresh seafood!
I wouldn’t come back, since I do not live here, or recommend this place and there are so many better places around SD areas for fresh delicious seafood!
One of my favorite places in San Diego! I live down in North Park so I only make it up for special occasions usually but it is SO WORTH IT!
I was very disappointed in our overall experience here on a Monday night. We had reservations for 6:30pm. We arrived on time and were seated right away. The drinks we ordered were served timely. After that, it went down hill. I am very allergic to shrimp and since many of the specialty sushi rolls included shrimp, our waitress told us it would not be a problem to serve the shrimp separately for my husband to enjoy. I ordered two rolls. He ordered a cucumber salad and Korean pork. His food was served quickly. I had to wait for the first roll, which, once it arrived, had the shrimp separate. It was not my favorite sushi roll, but it was ok. The second roll took another 20 minutes to arrive and by the time it was served, my husband was done with his meal. And unfortunately, the shrimp was included in the roll. The waitress offered to have it re-made, but not wanting to wait, we declined. She did remove it from our bill. We were never offered another drink nor dessert. Both tables next to us were also waiting on food from their orders. Maybe this was just an off night, and if I lived here I might give the place another try. Based on other reviews, our experience didn’t live up to our expectations.
Such amazing food! Nothing like it anywhere including Japan. The food is creative
Kudos to the sushi chefs. This is my 3rd time and absolutely recommend this warm and inviting restaurant. Super service too!
As acknowledged foodies, sushi devotees and out-of-towners at a business meeting, we read the description of W&RSpub with some reservation-just not sure what to expect.
What we found was sushi that was, without exaggeration, twice as good as the next best sushi we have ever eaten (including top-tier N.Y. places). Their version of omekase was fresh, creative, surprising, delicious (pickled kohlrabi; guava puree; halibut; wahoo tataki; steelhead; much much more).
We found this place by accident some time ago. It is our go-to Sushi destination restaurant. We travel an hour to get there and it is worth it. Highly recommend this establishment! just wish we could figure out the story behind the name!
Our server was amazing!!
Server was an expert on the menu and sourcing. She (Rae) paced us beautifully and we never felt rushed but always felt taken care of. Ceviche was creative, complex and fresh. Sushi was elevated, executed perfectly. Bold flavor combinations, conceptually fearless, and each roll was unique and distinct from the other. The menu was progressive but I noticed a mix of clientel including families with young kids. The beer and wine selection was nice too with local options. Overall one of the best weekend dining experiences we've had in a long time. Definitely recommend!
Great ambiance and unique food choices made this dining experience wonderful. We tried some sashimi, rolls, and of course the seabass and everything was great. Service was prompt and attentive and she made great recommendations since it was our first time there. Highly recommend.
Has become my favorite sushi bar & one of my favorite restaurants. Chefs are creative and innovative. Fun to watch!! Staff is friendly. Good energy!!
We were celebrating a birthday but there was no acknowledgement of that. Not a big deal at all, just wanted to pass on the info. We still enjoyed ourselves.
It was a fantastic meal as always however , we ordered the meal where you keep the food coming and didn’t know we should’ve told them when to stop and our bill was $169 for two people. We discussed with the waitress the fact that it was listed as $40 on the menu but didn’t realize that we were supposed to communicate when to stop. Bummer . Next time I will be more clear .
One of our favorite places to go. Everyone there takes such good care of us and as far as the food goes, I don’t think you can find anything like it anywhere. I Love this place
The hostess was most helpful when I called in to change my reservation time slot reserved thru Open Table. As for food, the nigiri wasn't the best but the ceviche was delicious. Bites from the noodle shop (combined restaurant next door) were better overall. Staff was courteous & professional in fixing a small problem we had. Because of the head waitress/manager's resolution we'd visit again but try different dishes.
The sushi are amazing and delicious. I would highly recommend any dish on the menu.
The food and service were outstanding. The restaurant itself is quite bohemian but super fun. Music was not my taste but part of the experience...highly recommend.
Amazing food and service with a positive vibe. This is my family’s go to spot because of the fresh sushi and creative dishes. I highly suggest this spot. Thank you.
We love Nobu but the food here was as good or better and it was a nice casual environment.
What a wonderful restaurant. Inventive sushi with no attitude. Love coming here and just let the chef make the choices. All the 5 star reviews are there for a reason!
Best creative (non-traditional) sushi I have had in a long time. Fresh fish, inventive flavors and a warm staff. Everyone was happy with every dish. That is truly rare.
Great great food and service. Tables are cramped and too small but great food makes up for it!
Eclectic small space. Insane vibrant food flavors. Super creative. Worth a drive.
We heard a lot about the place via Facebook/Instagram so gave it a try. With vegan options it was worth the try. Food was good and the choices were plentiful - for both vegan and non-vegan diners. Would recommend if looking for a casual - almost sushi - restaurant for vegans.
I recall a dish I ordered on my first visit; it's an outstanding sashimi preparation called "Powerbowl." No skimpy portions here; it's very generous with the most fantastic salad, a real work of art! I almost didn't try the salad, it was so gorgeous! I've ordered this dish 3 times in my last 3 visits. A real masterpiece.
Always amazing food , energy and ambiance.
