We had a fantastic meal at Hachi in Torrance a couple of weeks ago with the omakase offering, and was so looking forward to enjoying the same at the Hachi in Costa Mesa. Unfortunately, when we arrived, the server and then the manager informed us that they would not be honoring the omakase menu that is offered on their internet site. I argued with them that this is the sole reason for me to be there, and that they should honor the menu on their website (which has updated COVID restrictions by the way). When they refused to do so again, that really left a sour taste for me and ruined the meal experience.

My new find from open table. It reminds me of a little izakaya in Tokyo. I love the food variety and how it fits into So Cal cuisine.

I usually like this place. I frequent it weekly.. but this experience was not one of the best. It took me back to the first experience when food was subpar... service was not great and I was just sitting there waiting for food the whole 3 hours for 8 small dishes. Don’t over book what you can handle.

Great food as usual. The outdoor set up leaves much to be desired. Being right by the cars parking and having the headlights constantly shining on doesn’t help the ambiance. Hopefully they’ll get to move inside soon!

Very authentic Japanese food, quality ingredients and right size portions. The service is good but a little slow. The menu is laminated and it feels low quality and it clashes with the rest of the dining experience.

It didn't feel like tables were spaced not far enough for social distancing, next table ans seating on my back side was very close to our side (like regular seat spacing before the COVID).

This is wonderful casual Japanese food at its best! After recently being in Japan, Hachi definitely holds up to the great food the Japanese are known for. Make sure to try the beef tongue and the uni is fantastic. The chicken wings and veggie chips are great sides too!

Came here as a group for my friend's birthday and we ordered Omakase course. EVERYTHING was so delicious. We chose Motsu Nabe and we all LOVED ITTT. Their service was excellent. Will come back and try Shabu Shabu.

We booked a table here because of how amzing their online photos and great reviews were. Unfortunately it was way to pricey for the quality of food... We ordered all house specialties and the only one we actually really liked was the beef salad. Also i made a note on open table that was a birthday dinner but nothing was mentioned... the waitresses just seemed overwhelmed and even declined our request to move to a more private table even thou it remained empty for the rest of the night. We (6) end up sharing with two other people while a bigger table was kept empty. So yeah quite disappointed and will for sure not book it again.

I wish I could say maybe instead of no. Good food and service but very small portions at very high prices. Not a great value for a strip mall sushi joint.

Hachi Izakaya Restaurant serves truly quality food and the service is excellent.
Recommend beer and shochu with their izakaya dishes.
Truly a fun and enjoyable dining experience. Will be there again to try other dishes.

Every time I come here (once a week, sometimes twice a week), I am never disappointed. So far the pork cheek and the intestines are my favorite! The flavors are killer, the service is excellent, and all the chefs are so nice. Everything on the menu is delicious. You got to give this place a try! Oh, and they have Orion on draft. FTW!!
