Diner Reviews
  • "After hearing this was a neighborhood gem for many years, we finally decided to try it for a quick weeknight dinner while our kids were out of town. Our entire meal was awful.. flavorless sushi, dried out cucumber salad, fishy and mushy shrimp dumplings and spicy yellowtail toast. We would have been better off staying home. Didn't help that a 3 year old was sitting at a nearby table and watching videos without headphones for everyone else to enjoy!"

  • "Little hidden gem on Beverly Blvd. Went on a Thursday night. Not crowded, but not empty either. They have a daily sushi menu on the wall, in addition to the regular menu. Tried the blue cod taro roll and a white snapper. Both were good but expected more than 2 pieces of the white snapper for $12. Had a rainbow roll which was plentiful and lovely. Service was very good. As soon as you were done eating, plates were removed."

  • "This neighborhood gem is just that, a gem. Food is delish and fresh. Customer service is stellar. There is just nothing wrong with the place. Great service (people) & food. Whenever I scan the restaurant during dinner, I noticed that the other patrons are smiling and having a great time too."

  • "My friend and I had a solid experience this past Sat night. I've dined at Itacho in the past (during the week when it's not quite so busy) and it's always quite good. This past Sat didn't fail in the taste department - however the service was much slower and our food took an incredibly long time to come out. I do understand that Sat evenings are busier than normal weeknights so in that area, it's forgivable. However, on two separate occasions, the server took our order and we had to check with him on our food (once we realized how long it was taking) and it turned out, the order was lost and he had to re-write and submit. So, we waited twice as long as we would normally need to. With all that said, the food is so good it's well worth it."

  • "overall good service and food- not flashy like roku or rocking sushi with long list of crazy rolls but good- love the mochi ice cream. Hard to find a parking spot at night in the area so valet is $5."

  • "We went with a large group which is always tricky with sushi but it exceeded expectations. I ordered many different pieces of nigiri and it was served to me on my own plate - not mixed up with other orders which I really liked.. The waiter recommended the order in which to eat each piece and he was absolutely right! The sushi was so fresh and created with care.The appetizers - crunchy rice stick with spicy tuna and yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño was wonderful and the kids loved it. I have sushi once a week either at nobu, sugarfish or Katsuya and the food here was just as good, some of it better.. A great surprise. They do need more waiters though. There only seemed to be one the night we were there and it got very busy."

  • "I just love this place. The servers are friendly and attentive- they will even make suggestions based on what fish is the freshest. I love the variety on the menu along with their prices. It will not cost you an arm & leg to have a great sushi dinner. They also have a specials menu written on a chalkboard that have great deals too. The food is fantastic and very flavorful. I have not disliked any dish I have ordered there. I usually just get sushi and haven't tried many of their hot dishes other than some appetizers. It's conveniently located on Beverly Blvd and has affordable valet parking if you can't find a meter. If you like sushi or even if you are curious about trying it- you will not be sorry you went to Itacho!"

  • "I visit Itacho regularly and it's always great! It's a perfect restaurant to dine with friends, a date, a large group, and my favorite spot for dinner with my boyfriend and his mother. We order the Lotus Root and Curry Shrimp dishes every time we come!"

  • "With so many Westernized Japanese restaurants in LA, it's refreshing to find a restaurant that doesn't cater to the American palate and instead stays true to traditional Japanese izakaya-style cuisine. Izakaya food is essentially Japanese tapas, and the fun is to create a meal out of small plates of delicious tidbits like miso-marinated eggplant, crunchy fried chicken, and Japanese peppers sautéed in soy sauce. There's even sushi for those who can't goo without. The service is good and helpful if you need any items explained. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "The food was good. Some fun dishes, although nothing set itself apart. That might be due to the bad service overshadowing the food. Had to ask two and three times for everything. With only three tables, and the staff visibly standing around chatting, it was upsetting that we had to ask for the check twice - after waiting ten minutes. We missed the desert run to Milk, across the street. The birthday desert plan was ruined. I'd recommend BLD over this place in a heartbeat. But if you can get over the service, this place has a fun dining experience at reasonable prices, for most dishes"
    Dined on 5/8/2013
  • "Food was really fresh and the staff very helpful. Service was outstanding. I tried to find something negative to say about this place, but not one thing comes to mind. It was a very enjoyable meal. Also they have valet parking. The spicy tuna on crispy rice was incredible!"

  • "I will definitely return to this restaurant. The sashimi was like butter. Just melted in your mouth. Very fast service, also.... though we were the first people in the restaurant for Friday night dinner, so it's a little hard to judge appropriately."

  • "Always good....always reliable. Good Japanese Izakaya...and now they have sushi too! It's like coming home...."
    Dined on 3/15/2013
  • "Everything was fairly good, except the grilled teriyaki octopus was dry and tough - when we complained, the servers just shrugged. Also, 'large' hot sake is pretty small. Do not make a 10:00 reservation - though we were early, we were always rushed to order. Probably would not go back. Really miss the charm of their original location years ago on Highland and Santa Monica - just feels cold and generic now."

  • "Ita-Cho is always great and sushi chef Hiro is on par with the absolute best LA has to offer. Beyond the sushi, the tatsuta age and buta kakuni are also excellent."
