Fantastic anniversary lunch on a Friday late afternoon! Food was delicious — highlights were hamachi, corn tempura, and variety of skewers esp the green onion chicken thigh! Drinks were unique and strong — loved the various high balls. Service by Fabian was excellent and Covid 19 efforts were noticed. Outdoor seating isn’t fancy but enjoyed people watching and was comfortable. I bet it’s super cute at night with all the lights! Park in The Bloc for validates rates.

The skirt steak was awesome, we ordered two plus the chicken and plum-ok, the hamachi-great!, the chicken meatball-tasty but didn't need the egg yolk sauce and the bacon wrapped asparagus--which was so flavorful. Plus If you like Japanese whiskey this will be an oasis for you. And if you're like me and love a well made highball then I'd say you're almost as perfect as me

Excellent food! In somewhat of an odd location, felt like an upscale food court in an outdoor mall, but you'll quickly forget where you are and be immersed in the amazing yakatori.

Perfect open-air dining for late night food and drinks. It was easy and comfortable. We’re happy to stumble on this, arrived at 10:30pm and stayed until 1am. Perfect location to chill and hangout with friends and a safe and fun area.

Outdoor set-up at The Bloc, small outdoor area but spread out nicely. Felt pretty clean and safe eating there. It's nice to have a yakitori option in DTLA, and the food is decent. I liked the beef tongue.

We sat outside in front of Macy’s entrance side, and the orders came out all wrong. Our food went to another table, and theirs came to ours. We asked for certain drinks and they didn’t come until we had to remind them twice. When we were having a serious conversation, the servers kept coming up and interrupted us, even though we were in middle of talking. The food is great but the service needs to improve

I frequent many restaurants at all price points but for our dinner value was not on the menu. Extremely small portions although tasty, left me hungry after dinner.

This was a date night and unfortunately failed at s on ambiance and food faire.

Trying to be positive about the experience but quite unsatisfying.

I didn't think the food was worth the money TBH I've had better Yakitori for a cheaper price. Often yakitori comes with 2 skuer but they this place only offers 1 for the price of 2. doesn't make sense to me. Service was good servers were super nice and friendly. If you haven't had Yakitori before I wouldn't recommend this place to be your first. It wasn't like they offered anything special or out of the ordinary. Not worth.
