Went to the Canal Club for an office party for the accountant for who I work. Ordered a few drinks which in retrospect must have been quadruples. Made out with an obese German woman.
Ten months later received a certified letter demanding a paternity test. Now I have a son named Gunter.

Great happy hour

Come here on a Wednesday for discounted Sake! Other than that, their happy hour runs from 5-7 every night and you can get good prices on sushi and drinks. I recommend the Kirin Ichiban, it comes in a huge can and for $5 it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Great atmosphere, horrible food

I took a friend here for her birthday and we were disappointed. It's a VERY cool atmosphere, but that's about it. Service is mediocre and food is terrible. We ordered a bunch of different dishes, so I'm not basing this review on just one. It was boring and not flavorful. Even my drink was bad-- it was a margarita I think. Great scene, but stick to wine or beer and don't order food-- that would be my advice.

Good service, good food, great service!

This place is one of my favorites. If you stop in, say hello to Jose at the bar. He'll take good care of you for sure. I love their happy hour w/half priced appetizers. The grape and brie quesadilla is absolutely out of this world! Great food and great drinks and usually a really good mix of people. Nice atmosphere, and of course, the service is outstanding. A little on the pricey side, but in my opinion, well worth it.

Mexican, and Sushi. The combo sounds odd, but give it a try. Ask for a table in the front room, or sit at the bar for sushi. If you want peace, then opt forthe back room. DJ plays later on the weekend. It gets crowded.

worst experience of all time...and that ain't easy

I used to dj here. Until I gave a ride home to an intoxicated patron. Met the girl at the venue. Evidentally there was an altercation between the patron and a security guard, so i heard later. The next day, the catering? manager phoned me and gave me problems for offering the patron a safe lift home . Telling me I shouldn't associate with people like that, This woman never layed eyes on the patron, b/c she had left hours before the ""incident"", which is still a mystery, since she couldn't tell me what could she? I protested. How could I not? I don't work there now. She ""fired"" me for getting a patron home safely. there's a first for everyting. Class act they got going and most certainly will never be back.

One of the best Happy Hour Sushi spots in LA

Canal Club's Happy Hour put's Bite's to shame. Not only do they have an eclectic mix of sushi and grilled items, but they are priced right and you get more than your money's worth for under $20. I would suggest sitting at the sushi bar and relaxing with fellow patron's and your attentive sushi chef. The only downside is parking on the infamous Pacific street (and anywhere in Venice, for that matter). Overall, highly recommended, based on my experiences and other friend's recommendations. Enjoy!

If you have a restaurant 1 block from the ocean, shouldn't you have good fish for your sushi?

If I had known that this place was owned by the same guys who own James Beach across the street, I would have never set foot in this place, but it did explain a lot. Visually, this place is pretty cool. Sunken in sushi bar in the middle of the restaurant, cool color scheme, and good music. Unfortunately, that's where the positives end. Our server, who was practically non-exsistent, had no time for us as they were short staffed or something, whatever. We started with a couple of appetizers but their friend calamari was the greasiest I have ever had ever. The potstickers were obviously not home made and were tasteless, and the quesadilla was a bit burned, which ruined the other flavors. Then there was the disasterous sushi. Let me just say that when a sushi place uses imitaion crab meat in their california rolls it should set off red flags immediately. The ahi tuna tasted as if it was a few days past its due date, the sashimi was cut way too thick and was rubbery. There really was no imagination and their sushi was just kind of vanilla. The sushi rice was way too dry and did not have enough of that good sweet vinegary flavor to it. You can't make good sushi without good sushi rice, and if you can't cook rice correctly, you've got problems in your kitchen. There are more than a few excellent sushi places to go to in Venice that are more worthy of your time and money. Apparently, they have a happy hour where everything is like half-off. If they charged these prices all of the time, it is still not worth it.

consistently above-average sushi, great drinks, good scene

Canal club does not have *outstanding* sushi, but it is definitely consistently above average. I recommend sitting at the sushi bar, ordering some sake and enjoying the scene. I've never had anything but sushi there but have heard that I'm not missing much.
