    Fabulous all around! Great server with wonderful suggestions helped make our dinner perfect. Portions are big enough for sharing so since we were a party of 4 we tasted a lot! Cod and Hanger Steak , sashimi, kale salad, Brussel sprouts,and fried rice. All were exceptional. Corkage fee is hefty and prices were high but worth it

    The good: The crispy chicken on the “small plates” part of the menu was fantastic and the portion was huge. We tried one and took the other two pieces home. The star of the show was the yams. Absolutely amazing. The pork chop was also quite good. The bad: Black cod was a bit too salty… everything swimming in an oily salty brine. We also ordered a bottle of Kunin Pape Star ($98) only to have the wine director come back and tell us it was sold out and offer us a bottle at almost triple the cost.

    We went there for NYE. We waited 20 min for the server. The 3 course pre fix menu was lack luster. The appetizers were very basic. Second course was worst. The fried chicken was undercooked. The Kale salad had no dressing. The Branzino and Cod were ok. The steak was cold. We notified the manager and sent it back. It came back out the same temperature. When we notified the manager again, she said “I will let the kitchen know.” How does that help the customer? I’ve have not seen this level of incompetence and unprofessionalism in a long time! Don’t waste your time or money! At $200/per person, we could have done a lot better elsewhere.

    For the last 4 years a colleague of mine recommended this place to me. I live in Miami and usually visit Los Angeles every other years. Although I had in mind Hinoki & The Bird, I never had a chance to have dinner there. Covid time also prevented me to visit LA for the last 2 years. When coming back to Los Angeles, I made a point to have dinner at Hinoki & The Bird. I am so upset of myself. What a shame! My dinner at Hinoki & The Bird is one of the best I had from a long time. And I try to visit great restaurants in Miami, New York and Los Angeles. The place is so beautiful; The food is so delicious and original; The presentation is outstanding; and The service was great: Brieann is wonderful. She gave me the best advice on what to order. Everything is there for you to have a spectacular experience in such a pretty venue. I already want to go back to LA only to have dinner at Hinoki & The Bird again.

    Ambiance is comforting and relaxing; service is friendly and personable. The food is not as spectacular as I remember from 7-8 years ago, however it is still good (a little less creative and outside of the box from my recollection). Had every one of their deserts; absolutely fabulous, especially the cheesecake and Turkish coffee ice cream. Best items on their lunch menu: grilled salmon and wagyu burger. Side of fries and mushrooms was extremely salty and wiped my palette dry. Lobster roll was and sashimi appetizers were good, but did not meet my expectations.

    The whole automatic 20% service charge surreptitiously added to the bill without any mention by staff, hoping to see an unsispecting customer add even more tip, is a bit of a turn off. Not going back because of this practice.

    Beautiful romantic ambiance! The service was on point! All the food we ordered was super delish! Our appetizer was lobster roll and boar ribs. Main dish was pork chop and cod and fried rice all yummy! The manager Beverly came to our table and greeted my husband happy birthday. The miso doughnuts was the bomb. No complimentary bread you have to order and pay $14 which I think is not a good value for a bread. Cocktails were all good with good amount of alcohol. Will be back again and again!

    The restaurant is very vibrant and busy, which is really fun. The noise level quite loud. The food was a bit of a disappointment: overly salty and not as spectacular as I remember from previous dinners here. Our guests made a similar observation as to their dinners. The staff was great, very friendly and accommodating…though our waiter was not as attentive as our table was left unattended for long stretches of time. Perhaps there was not enough staff to wait the tables? Our overall bill was around 700-for 5 people, one was not drinking. That seemed high to me for the overall quality.

    The noise level at the restaurant would be less of a problem if the music played could be toned down considerably. It is hard to have conversation with person across the table,considering the noise of people talking, and the music just makes it even worse. The choice of music is also important.

    The worst food I have ever eaten. Arrived 10 minutes before reservation and waited nearly 40 minutes to be sat. $400 dinner for two, took 3 hours to get through an incredibly basic set menu. They didn’t ask how I wanted the steak cooked, it came out almost like jerky and was completely inedible. The slab of chicken was mush. If you’re under staffed don’t take the reservations.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Hinoki. The food was fabulous but the music was way too loud and not the kind that we like at all. The place is very dark, which is fine with us but some people might not like it. We sat inside but the patio outside looked beautiful. Looking into the open kitchen was also very interesting. Maybe we’ll go back and sit outside but we definitely wouldn’t take our elderly mother-in-law there. She hates dark and noisy.
