Desserts were just so-so.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMi haven't been back here ini haven't been back here in number of years. still beautiful but feels like the east dining area overlooking the cityscape might be in need of some renovation.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRomanticThis place has the greatest view ever. Down side is that after spending $140 on dinner for two the parking should have been free. Really, $8 more?4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYamashiros in Hollywood HillsYamashiro's was AWESOME!The service was impeccable, we were seated Immediately, the food was fantastic!They even specially prepared a dish for a patronWho had allergies so she could eat.It was an amazing dining experience.The panoramic view was breath taking.Valet parking mandatory.A "must go" restaurant4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven't been there in soooooHaven't been there in sooooo long, and didn't even realize how much we've missed going.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHollywood GemI haven't been to Yamashiro in many years and it was pleasant to return. We enjoyed several appetizers and sushi choices, some plum wine and the incredibly pleasant garden of koi ponds and running water. I will go back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was what I wantedEverything was what I wanted and excepted. Thank you for a great happy anniversary night.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely restaurantHadn't been to Yamashiro in quite a few years but always loved it. I was somewhat afraid that over the years the quality had gone down or ambiance was not up to par. My fears were for naught. I was not disappointed at all! This is a wonderful restaurant. Everyone raved about the deliciousness of their meal. It goes without saying there is a spectacular view. The grounds have been kept up beautifully. We will be coming back again and again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat View, decent food.The food was not great considering the reputation of Yamashiro, so i was a bit disappointed. But the ambiance was amazing and you really go for the experience.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique atmosphere and locationI went here recently for a birthday celebration during a weeknight when it wasn't so crowded. Overall, the food and service were good. It's pricey for dinner though with most entrees starting at $25 and up. Dinner for two with with drinks came to about $100. They also only have valet parking at $8. Fortunately, we received free dessert for the birthday celebrant. Yamashiro is one of those places best for a special occasion or a romantic dinner. It features a unique Japanese style architecture with an indoor garden and koi pond. Best of all, as many have said, it has a spectacular view of L.A.!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!!I've lived in LA for 13 years and never wanted to go here since I thought it would be a tourist trap. I have friends in town and they had me make reservations. Wow I've been missing out. Every dish was beyond delicious!! Even my tea was amazing.I will for sure be going back!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy waitress was great. OverallMy waitress was great. Overall experience was lovely.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy 2 centsI was impressed with the quality of food and great service. The views were stunning, perfect for that romantic dinner.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis has always been one ofThis has always been one of the best views in the city and now the food has finally caught up. This was an incredible meal.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wish FulfilledI grew up in Los Angeles in the 1950's, and always wanted to take that special date to Yamashiros. For one reason or another, it never happened.
As the years went by, I periodically thought about about going there, but again it never happened. However, I did promise myself that one day I would.
Now, all these years later, I was finally able to take that special lady, my wife of 50 years, to Yamashiros. It was all that I hoped it would be. I only wish I had done it, as originally hoped, all those years ago. Back when a night out on the town was more formal and special. Nevertheless,
Yamashiros of today was all that I thought it would be. It is a truly a Los Angeles treasure. Thank you for a lovely evening.
