Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub Ratings and Reviews
This is not your typical sushi restaurant. The Wrench will happily make "traditional" sushi dishes. But their forte is creative dishes using available local ingredients, house made sauces and pickled additions. Once they learn your flavor preferences, it's in your best interest to let them create for you. If you enjoy nearly every food that enters your mouth, try the Omakase. The chefs will perform amazingly to create not just a meal, but an "experience", that happens to include stunningly delicious food! Course after course! Embrace "Earth to Face"!
We love this place! The sushi is amazing. They'll make a surprise roll for you if your request it and it's always phenomenal. Some of the inside tables are really close as it's a small place so not as intimate but the sushi is worth it. You can order next door at the ramen place too
The food was spectacular we recognized the sushi chef from another place. happy to see him here. It was early evening and it looked like they were a little under staffed. it took a while to get drinks and longer to get the order taken. the food quality made up for it! the place is small inside so be prepared for a loud environment. the food is spectacular! definitely check it out.
We frequent W&R and love bragging about our north county sushi gem. Unfortunately this visit our server was not up to par as they've been in the past. Didn't know the specials or oysters or beers available and food descriptions were lack luster when items were brought to the table. Yes, I know this is the salmon nigiri, but what's the garnish? The chef is SO creative and the flavors are always so incredible, we wish the service mirrored that level of dining.
I've been eating at this amazing establishment for over two years. The sushi chefs never cease to amaze me. I can't name another restaurant that can surprise me with unique presentations each and every visit. The freshness of the fish is the least of your concern. Davin and Alec make sure your dining experience is enjoyable on a whole other level. Sitting at the bar is indescribable. Trust your local #sushichefs
An intimate funky lively venue, invisible from the street at night--and the sushi is outstanding! Don't miss the Hedgehog Roll and the saltwater eel nigiri! Service is fast and prompt. The beer menu is short, and the selections are exotic and delicious! They have captured the essence of California dining, especially with the outdoor seating.
I can't say enough good things about the quality and creativeness of the food. I'm a changed person about the way I think about food and what it can be. I've been aware of the place since the beginning thanks to the beautiful food photos on Instagram but never made the trek down from LA. I finally did and it was better than I imagined. There is nothing fancy going on here. It's all about the food and a staff that really seems to care about what they are doing here. This place is a one-of-kind and needs to be experienced by people that appreciate greatness. Detailing the Wow Factor are too many to write here but if you are ok buying your sushi from Von's this place is not for you. Enjoy!
If you are looking for creative 'fun' sushi rather than the traditional simple fare, this is an excellent choice. Some interesting selections that do not need soy sauce and wasabi ... they are already packed with interesting flavors. Dress down for this California seaside venue ... its kitschy and laid back fun.
