We dined once at the original Scratch Bar and once at Pasta Bar and this was our first time at Sushi Bar by Scratch and it did not disappoint. Yes, it is very expensive, but like Pasta Bar, you get an intimate culinary experience with outstanding dishes and pairings. There are only 10 diners at the sushi bar and we were lucky that the couple to the right and left of us were very social and down to earth, making the whole experience that much better. All the staff were fantastic. Professional, but not stuffy and very personable and attentive. The food was delicious and artfully presented. The drink and sake pairing were great as well. Great experience overall and I would recommend it for a splurge or special occasion meal. Keep up the great work Scratch restaurants!

Had a fantastic evening at sushi by scratch. Great food, entertaining chefs, and nice cocktails. I just have two notes of feedback for the restaurant: 1. It cheapens the experience to ask your guests, “here for sushi or pasta?”. It immediately causes your guests to question whether it is a good idea to spend $300 for sushi at a restaurant that also makes pasta. 2. Leading the guests through the kitchen to get to the sushi room put a sour taste in our mouth since it wasn’t an impressive kitchen and somewhat dirty. Later in the evening we noticed that the entrance to the sushi room was right next to the entrance and that whole charade wasn’t even necessary. I’d recommend to stop doing that unless you want to invest in a cleaner/more impressive kitchen.
Born and raised a self proclaimed food nerd and sushi obsessive I’m over the moon for Sushi Bar LA. Everything from the doorbell, the surprise seating, the personal care to cater to your preferences and the incredible inventive food make this a Michelin worthy restaurant. The sushi was so incredibly good that I felt tears welling up in my eyes eating it! As we were eating we booked dinner reservations for NYE! The team is amazing. This is definitely my favorite restaurant in LA now. Maybe my favorite restaurant of all time. Bravo!
