Walked to Wrench and Rodent while on vacation last month, and we are glad we checked it out. We sat outside on the small front patio and ordered a few rolls and a chicken entree. The server and the trainee that took our orders were...More

The food is very unique and delicious. I would say this is probably not for someone looking for a "crunchy roll" or that type of sushi. It's fresh and simple but with a twist. I had some sushi with beets that sounded odd but was...More

This is a hidden gem in South Oceanside. Innovative dishes, delicious. Try the "Wet Brain" - stuffed shitake mushrooms, absolutely killer.

This restaurant was on a list that a local friend said we had to try. Both of us love sushi, we own a boat and frequently fish (lotsa fresh bluefin this year!!), so this was an easy stop. I'm not a super fan of eating...More

I read about this place and was able to try it for the first time. I will definitely be going back. First, the fish was some of the freshest I have had. The sauces and presentation were creative and incorporated fresh, local ingredients. My daughter...More
