No trip to Los Angeles would be complete without at least a meal or two at sugarfish! The servers are always attentive and friendly, the menu includes a vast variety of dishes, and the ambiance is always excellent! They have a number of menus such as the trust me lite (perfect for lunch) and trust me which allows you to... More

I eat a lot of sushi, but this was in a class of its own. Very simple, nothing fancy, but wow! What quality! I had the Trust Me choice. Each piece of sushi was tender, delicate, with no stringiness or off-taste parts - it melted in my mouth. The distinctive taste of each selection stood out - the rice was... More

I went to dinner alone and I sat at the bar seating. The service was super friendly and recommendations excellent. I will definitely go back to try more items on the menu and suggest if you are in the downtown area of Los Angeles to try this place out!

I selected the Trust me menu and was not disappointed. The dinner consisted of 4 servings of a variety of sushi as well as rolls. The servings were of good size and filling. The restaurant is small and did not accept reservations. I imaging there could be a wait at certain times. The restaurant was highly recommended by several colleagues... More

I came alone sitting on the bar - my favorite way in sushi places - as I love to see the preparation. Here it is not the case. I did not go for their "trust me" pre picked menus - did not like the combination there. Started with sashimi tuna that was wonderful- it is served in a yuzo and... More

The waiter recommended the Trust Us selection of sashimi/sushi which cost us $32 per person. The fish was incredibly fresh and the rice warm. They also do a nice job pacing the plates so you get to savor each bite as it comes out. The seaweed rolls were warm and crispy. Even with the nice selection, at the end we... More

Loved this place and loved the slight twist on normal sushi restaurants. To my surprise the warm rice really gave it an extra dimension and i loved that it came pre sauced with no need for post soy dipping.

Great quality sushi. Go with the Trust Me menu. The course will just come. Most are pre sauced. Note that rice is warm so don't squeeze too hard. Downtown is much easier to get into than westside outposts.

We had the $37 trust me plates. The fish was definitely very fresh and tasted good but there wasn't much to it and the portion size was very small. Just fish, rice and seaweed. The server was really nice but for $110 USD after tax and automatically included service charge I would say the value is pretty horrible. Bottom line:... More

My friend and I searched for a sushi restaurant in LA while at a conference. The reviews were largely good for sugar fish so we went. I was highly disappointed ! The small, very crowded, dimly lit restaurant was over priced and we were very rushed. It was similar to an assembly line......get em in, get em out !! I... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
