Inspired by the Pubs of Tokyo

Robata Bar combines modern style and ancient practices. Our sultry, inviting setting centers around Robatayaki, a time-honored tradition of grilling skewers over an open flame and Binchotan charcoal. This technique adds a smoky richness that intensifies the flavor of our premium meats, fresh seafood and seasonal vegetables.

Our Menus

Alongside this Japanese comfort food, we serve a delicious selection of traditional and California-inspired Asian cuisine. Our sushi chefs artistically prepare rolls, sashimi and nigiri with seafood flown in from Japan. We also offer hot and cold signature dishes from our inventive kitchen. At the bar, we house a vast collection of sake, Japanese beer and whiskey, and craft cocktails, all hand-selected to accompany our delectable, flavorful fare.Located in Santa Monica, Robata Bar also features an outdoor patio overlooking the Pacific. Indoors and out, Robata Bar creates an experience where guests can relish the art of Japanese cuisine.
