Interesting venue, good food.

Once you are inside R-23 it's a nice venue, but the ambiance outside leaves a bit to be desired--it's in an industrial complex in what used to be railroad warehouses. This probably isn't an issue on a busy night with lots of other diners, but when we went late night the entire area was deserted and doesn't exactly inspire confidence walking from your car. Having said that though, R-23 does offer some very tasty f... view more

Best sushi in Downtown LA. Hard to find but well worth it once you do!

We went there for the first time on Friday, December 20th. My wife and I were so pleased with the service and food. We first thought to keep this little place a secret from all our friends. We wanted to surprise them all for each of their b-days and bring them there ourselves. But we decided to to be selfish. WE LOVE IT and would recommend it to those who are serious about their sushi :) Love it!

Great date place, awesome dining experience

This is one of my favorite restaurants, period. It's fantastic for a date, as it's very much out of the way but very classy and high-quality. I've also had business lunches and dinners here, and taken out-of-town guests here. The decor just oozes coolness without feeling pretentious at all. The sushi chefs are all the real deal and know what they're doing. I equally enjoy sitting at the counter or at a table, e... view more

Great sushi in hard to find olace

Love the atmosphere and the food. Make sure you try the crab salad as it is out of this world. If you can find it that is ;-)

Try the fresh water eel and the non-sushi items.

Let's see, we ordered steak with ponzu sauce, soft shell crab, black cod, and 26 pieces of sushi for $116.\r \r Make sure you ask the prices on the items without prices. The lobster tempura was $55 so we passed.\r \r The fresh water eel is some of the best around. The other sushi is very good, maybe not the best in LA, but definitely excellent. \r \r Yup, the location is not the best, but I have been coming ... view more

Fresh but not Spectacular Sashimi--Awesome Fusion-ish Cooked Japanese Food!

I've been a semi-regular here for several years. Yes, it is overpriced and yes the sashimi and sushi is fresh, but not spectacular, but it's still worth going. I especially enjoy the cooked kitchen food, which is less Japanese and more fusion--there is beautiful presentation AND it is something special and out of the ordinary. I've never had a problem with the service--even when I went with a friend and clearly we we... view more

Beautiful place, expensive sushi

sushi is good and fresh but all the food seems overpriced for what you get, and not outstanding. We asked for omakase but they didn't really seem to understand what we wanted. The kitchen dishes are beautifully presented. The restaurant has a beautiful interior. But not the best sushi in LA.

Best Japanese food in LA hands-down

The tempura was delectable (even though our waiter initially told us that they would not serve my vegetarian girlfriend a veggie only version. After several pleas, the manager helped us out). Beware that even the few dishes marked ""veggie"" contain fish stock. If you are fine with that, then you will love this place! I sure did. The rolls were excellent and the dishes were extremely tasty. Even the wasabi was partic... view more

Awesome Sushi, spooky alley

I first visited R-23 four years ago and was amazed. I've been back regularly since then and love it every time. I think i've covered practically all the items on the chef's menu, from the dungeoness crab salad, lobster tempura, fried sawa crabs, even to the ginko nuts(yum). We go primarily for the sushi, which are fresh, and of generous cuts... even the finicky uni is unfailingly fresh. The gallery is attached n... view more

Good atmosphere

The atmosphere is good. I wasn't too impressed with the sushi - it was fresh and declious, but nothing special.
