"Excellent newcomer. Very authentic Japanese taste. Many ingredients sourced in Japan including the rice. Omakase courses available as strictly sushi, strictly from the kitchen or a combination of both. Wagyu from Japan was decadently delicious at a price. Thank you for an excellent dinner."

Owner/Chef, Keizo Ishiba, is classically trained in both Japanese and French cuisine, Keizo has been honing his skills for over thirty years. From his training in Osaka to his acclaimed work in Kyoto, Hawaii, and Los Angeles, Keizo's creativity and innovation bring a fresh interpretation to classical cooking styles. His award-winning sushi is at the heart of his technique, but his repertoire extends into a full range of small plate selections, allowing him to create a unique and varied dining experience. Restaurant K-ZO is Keizo's premier venture as chef-owner and presents a true expression of his culinary vision. His knowledge of European cuisine fused with his traditional Japanese roots exalts passion straight from the kitchen to the table.

Tapas, Sangria and Spanish Cuisine <br> Julian Serrano stretches the boundaries of small plates and introduces guests to delectable interpretations of his native Spanish fare. Gather for lunch or dinner in an environment that rivals the energy of the innovative cuisine served. From the detailed décor to the hot tapas, flavor is abundant.

"Delicious food somewhat diminished by the service. All the orders ( of tapas ) came immediately but that overwhelmed the table. Then there was no service to be found. Wine never poured, water had to be asked for, no one checked to see if the food was satisfactory. Uneven."

An LA landmark since its opening in 1983, The Ivy is the place to go for a great time in the City of Angels. From its star-studded crowd, to its jamming music, friendly wait-staff, killer cocktails and unbeatable food, this cozy, hip, neighborhood restaurant exemplifies the easy glamour and charm that California is all about.

"Completely revamped menu is just the beginning of some big changes in store. Still a few of the old favorite smoked fish but a new direction clearly signaled. Service remains top notch. Weekend was packed with a combination of shoppers and families. Thank you!"
