I don't where to begin. I was celebrating my dates birthday by taking her to this magnificent gem of an experiential delicacy. I'd only experienced Q during a lunch following mediation with the Quinn, Emmanuel guys. This time I needed to have the full experience. I came prepared with an exquisite bottle of champagne, which they allow for a modest $25 corkage fee. We also had a nice, dry sake to start from their excellent selection. Upon entering, I was actually pleasantly surprised to see Chef Hiro, as on the previous occasion he was not present. My date was unsure of exactly what to expect. The ambience was beautifully curated, everything fit together perfectly, the music, the company, the drink, and last but never ever least, the food. All of the fish was amazing, the sardine was my personal favorite, while my date was enamored by the toro. Everything was exceptional, the fish was perfectly cured or covered in excellent, but subtle sauces. There were point during this experience in which I was transported, I felt like I was in Mid district Tokyo. It was only until after we left, and went outside into the Urban DTLA jungle that I finally came back to earth. I genuinely don't think this experience could have been any better. I forgot to mention that we were the only two people in the entire restaurant, therefore we had all of Chef Hiro attention. I cannot wait to come back.
The place was great very subdued, reminded me of sushi restaurant in Japan. The food, the quality of the fish was excellent. I would come back to this place for sure.
This place costs a pretty penny, but it’s an amazing experience as you watch a master at his craft. So, if you can appreciate that you are paying for more than just “sushi” this is a place to try. The omakase will take your breath away. It is truly magical. Sit at the bar and you will make friends easily with other diners as you marvel at the sushi being purposely placed on your plate. Even the ginger is astounding. Such a great place to celebrate a special occasion.
Chef Hiroyuke is the best! The variety of courses that he presents is magnificent. Q has became our go-to for fine dining Japanese cuisine.
What to say about Q... I've been wanting to go here for some time because of its reputation. The experience definitely lived up to the hype and my expectations. Chef Hiro cranks out about 20 courses in 90 minutes and they're all stellar. Very traditional Japanese omakase restaurant. Would love to go back to try the menu as it changes over time from what fish he selects....but the cost is VERY high. Between dinner, 2 glasses of beer and (shared) 2 bottles of sake with 3 other people, my share of the tab (after revisiting 2 dishes & service fee/tip) was >$400. I've been to some great omakase sushi where I was drunk at the end from so many beers and was filled up to my eye balls in amazing fish for 2 people for less than that. So while the overall experience is GREAT, its definitely not for the faint of heart with their pocket book....
One of the best places in LA to get premium sushi. Spring for the Botan menu highly recommended. A+ service, consistent quality. Thank you Chef Hiro, Mrs K. The best!
Excellent service 10/10! Excellent ambiance. Ordinary quality fish.
If you’re looking for a nice dining experience I highly recommend!
If you’re looking high quality fish, I do not recommend. If you’ve enjoyed high end sushi before you will not be satisfied with Q’s selection.
Chef Hiro and his staff really set the bar for us as far as dining omakase style at a sushi bar with a sushi chef. Being able to sit front row watching a very focused yet friendly sushi chef at work - presenting his talented pieces to his guests was a one-of-kind experience with Chef Hiro. It is pricey but worth it. The ambiance was quiet and elegant. Definitely somewhere I’d recommend taking someone on a date or even to have a light dinner party with friends. In each piece presented, you can tell how different it is from other sushi places. Very fresh, very tasteful, very detailed. His one staff that did all the clearing of dishes, refilling of water/drinks, and gracefully welcomed and thank’d each guest at the door was very on point and did not miss a beat. Mind there were 10 of us in one sitting at the bar, and she was minding all of our each and every move - whether it was showing us to the bathroom or pushing our chair back in when we sat back in.
They do include a 20% service charge which two ladies who sat next to us showed their dismay with sarcasm when their check was presented, but at a place like this with nothing but impeccable service and food I should hope they include a service charge for people who do want to enjoy the experience but get cheap around the gratuity percentages. Job well done to Chef Hiro and his staff at Q Sushi. We’ll be coming back when we visit LA again.
Minimalist perfection from a true master. The omakase menu unveils itself slowly over the course of about two hours and it’s pure inspiration. A little slice of the Ginza in downtown. 10++
Best sushi/sashimi experience I have ever enjoyed!
The chef is skilled. I had a really nice communication with him
Best sushi I have ever had. Highly recommended
Best sushi in LA. Exquisite fish, excellent quality and presentation.
Authentic sushi. Great quality.
Amazing quality and service as always. Seasonal fish was excellent, not to mention the egg cake (can literally eat that for B/L/D).. Thank you chef Hiro and Mrs K! A+
Definitely a must try for sushi purists
Extraordinary service and amazing sushi!
Sushi was slightly disappointing for the price
There was little variety in the dishes and preparations were uninspiring. The sushi was nothing more than rather average fish over rice. If looking for a touch of lemon zest, yuzu or any other subtle complement tp the fish, go elsewhere. At one point, five out of six pieces were tuna. This was a total disappointment. Just go to Sushi Zo where the fish is reliably excellent if looking for omakase.
Sublime in every way. Never had better sushi outside Tokyo. Eric and Hiro are both graceful, creative and masterful. Very expensive, of course, but well worth it.
best sushi in los angeles
One of the worst meals I've had! And the price tag was ridiculous. A huge disappointment. I would never go there again.
The ambiance was very intimate and personal. It was just a group of my friends and the sushi chef and waitresses. The entire experience was unique. However for as much as we paid I expected more food. In terms of quality the food was great. In terms of quantity, it was lacking.
Extraordinary experience, outstanding food and service, wonderful discussions with the chef, felt very welcomed, thank you for a special evening.
Some of the best sushi I’ve ever eaten outside of Japan. Served by graceful, friendly chefs (thanks, Erik!) in a grand space. The superb experience does come at a price: Dinner for one, with a $200 bottle of sake, was almost $500.
This is the place for people who like to experience the authentic high end raw fish. I went for dinner tasting menu. Only a couple of plates that are cooked. The sauces are delicate and tasty. I couldnt believe how the real wasabi can be so mild. It’s fun to observe how the chefs prepare food for you one bite at a time. The fish are fresh from various parts of the world. One fish (I don’t remember the name) tastes like coconut meat with the crunch and everything. It would be better if they offer more than one desert.
Every bite was amazing, and hope to come back again! Happy new year!
Fantastic as Always! The sushi and service is top notch!
It was super delightful, amazing flavours , super intimate, the highest quality of produce and skill showcased in its best form . I loved the amazing service and atmosphere . Love love loved it
2nd time coming to Q and it was better than my first...I loved the rice!!! The red vinegar rice was superb, well seasoned and perfectly cooked so that each grain was plump, sticky and perfectly jewel like. 3 types of snapper 4 types of yellowtail all showcasing unique individual traits that even a newcomer to sushi can easily understand.
So yea...I would say I like it here.
Got in a fight with my girlfriend the day before we went here. After eating at Q it’s safe to say that it saved our relationship. Thanks Q!
Q is authentic and delicious! The sushi chef was engaging and shared wonderful information about the different fish and his process for buying fish as well. The quality was outstanding! Each dish was flavorful and perfectly prepared. I can't wait to return. One of the best experiences I have had in a long time!
Exceptional hi level sushi and sashimi, probably among the best in LA.
Expectation was so high coming to this place. Toro dishes were pretty good and others are average comparing to others high end omakase. For 200 per person, i have had better sushi omakase experience else where.
Great experience as always. Took my brother and he had nothing but praise for the way Chef Hiro goes about each dish and the preparation. His dedication is evident in each item presented, amazing quality and the service A+ Thank you Chef Hiro and Mrs. K.
This is certainly Sushi done right. There is no menu, only two options for dinner. The chef chooses and serves the sushi. You do not even add soy. The chef is world renown, and if you want to experience sushi at its finest, this is likely THE place in socal. That said, it was too expensive for what it was. Perhaps I don't know my sushi well enough though.
Q is one of a handful places one can step into a Zen-like trance and focus one's entire being on enjoying authentic Tokyo sushi from a true master artisan. Chaos and chance have no place here; the sushi bar is transcendent and orderly, with every item placed with quiet intention and care. Likewise, each dish you'll consume will be created with the same intent and expertise. Spring for the Botan menu (requires 42hr advance notice), and you might receive fermented silver shrimp, Washington Kumomoto (IIR) with ponzu sauce, Uni marinated in sweetened miso for two weeks, anago sushi, and o-toro, toro, and more, with numerous courses of sushi. From casting ones eyes upon a dish, to holding it -- whether by chopsticks or by fingers -- and then relishing the textures, flavors, and temperatures, everything is set up for you to enter a dining trance and commune your senses with these treasures from the sea. This is Tokyo sushi at the high-end of refinement and pleasure.
A+ Service, they offered sake tasting for the remainder of the meal after we had finished the bottle we ordered. Consistent quality. Thank you Chef Hiro
This was my first time eating at Q. I had heard people hype it up, but from our experience, It did not meet the hype.
Fresh ingredients, attentive service, A+! Thank you Chef Hiro
