Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub Ratings and Reviews
The dishes looked pretty with creative names but did not taste as good as they looked (basically lack of flavor). We had high expectations due to the great reviews and were disappointed. Also pricey for what it is. Also crowded, and staff was unorganized and frazzled. Thu. night.
This joint is the best place to get sushi in North County. My husband and I have always sat at the bar - and have enjoyed the best service, the best tasting fish and ingredients you just KNOW are fresh. We tend to stray from the menu a bit and ask for whatever the sushi chef may feel like making - and it never disappoints.
The food was very good which interesting takes on sushi. The ambience depends on where you sit. The front room is nice, the back room is dark and outside is rather noisy with traffic. The service was fine but not exceptional. Overall a slight disappointment after hearing good things.
The food was very good but the service was awful. I had been warned by a friend who had had the same experience. With so many good places to choose from in all of San Diego area, I just wouldn't recommend Wrench and Roadant. I know they like there reputation of being "what you see is what you get" & they don't give a darn , but come on. My party and I are usually very good tippers but in this case I just couldn't see giving more than 15% and not our usual 20.
Didn't know what to expect, but the food was spectacular!! The dishes were very unique, presented beautifully and very tasty. I just loved the food but the ambiance was quite rustic, nothing fancy. Service was good. I would definitely come back but dress casual.
My first time there... was quaint and fun and delicious. I'm vegetarian and they had soy or rice paper and several plant based options to choose from! The waitress and chef even suggested an item they were able to make vegetarian that originally wasn't, so they are very accommodating. My husband loves fish (he's not veggie), so it's great for both of us! We sat outside and enjoyed the breeze and we love Oceanside!
It really is a great place. I like the very casual vibe. Don't equate casual vibe with casual service. Out waitress was the appropriate balance between always available and zero pressure. The place was very busy, but our food was served surprisingly quickly.
While we liked some things more than others, there was zero disappointment in any dish. My favorite on the night was the scallops. If you like scallops don't miss the Spicy Scallop Carpaccio.
Go with friends, so you can have at least four people at your table. You get to order more variety and try more things!!
It would be nice if there were more draft beers, but they have a respectable bottle beer selection and you probably can find something you'll like.
I/we will definitely be back.
Place came highly recommended by friends. Food we great with a nice variety of unusual dishes you dont find in most sushi restaurants. We sat outside since it was a nice evening but didn't realize how noisy the coast highway was going to be. Mostly because of all the loud motorcycles and cars with bad / intentionally loud mufflers! But overall it worked out good.
Great food. Very inventive spin heavy on sushi-style. Server was superb (Maxx). She was delightful. But the food is a tad slow as we're the drinks. But the food is great and worth the wait
There was a table of very loud people next to us. Made it a little tough to converse. When they left, we breathed a sigh of relief.
We had the crispy fish skins, hedgehog roll and devils ginger roll. Oprah and Ono in coconut sauce. All fantastic and we all agreed we'd definitely go back. Soon.
Taste sushi and sashimi like no other place you have ever eaten. All unique flavors have beginnings in locally grown fruits and vegetables. Unbelievable combinations of flavors make dining there amazing. Davin and Alex are incredible chefs. Don't forget the cheesecake.
My friend highly recommended this restaurant and, having been there, I fully understand why. Small but inviting place , with outdoor dining if you choose, but the sushi bar is where you want to sit. Reservations are a must if you want to watch your gourmet sushi being constructed. I was salivating just reading the menu selections.Brilliant and inventive combinations and delicious daily special selection,s as well as the usual sashimi and sushi items. The seafood is SO fresh and I definitely recommend the scallop carpaccio. Best sushi I have ever had!!!
