Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub Ratings and Reviews
I called and asked for outside table which they said yes, very nicely but as we got there they didn't hold an outside table and asked we wait 30 minutes. I said no and they sat us in corner with very lousy service. I am sad as the food can be very well done but consistently is an issue here.
Our favorite place to eat no matter what. Ok so 50 characters or more how about how we love the crew. Dave, Alex, Torrey, Dave's brother, the young man who always takes care of us and we should know his name. The wahoo, chronic roll and the sculpin is the best we've ever had and all the rest of the goodies they have us try. Just the best, keep it up you have a great following.
Honestly, the food at this restaurant is like no other. Everything we ordered was like nothing else we've ever had!!! Fantastic!!!!!!!!The value is amazing and so was the service. Get a reservation as it really fills out and for good reason.
We had "Cronic", Mango sushi, cucumber salad with salmon. Those are just the one's I remember.
Will be going back and sending all my family and friends!!
Go there, you won't be disappointed!!!
Goofy name and funky atmosphere with unique but tasty food options. We shared a delicious salad and enjoyed several sushi staples. All were very scrumptitious and fun. Would recommend for couple or small group as the place is "cozy". Have local brews and what we enjoyed, a local sake!
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.
