    Not sure why they ask you about your food allergy if they still bring you something with that food in it. We had Yazawa next door which is in the same restaurant group as IMA and we enjoyed very much but IMA comes a real disappointment as

    Luscious wagyu beef with the proper treatment. Different cuts allow you to experience the various textures and flavors, all the while still incredibly tender. Cook on your own or let someone curate your meal, each dish has engaging flavors while still keeping the beef front and center. We were helped by Grace, who lives up to her name. She provided us context and amazing service, and we couldn't imagine a more perfect person to make our Valentine's Day special.

    I cannot say enough positive adjectives about our delicious, lovely, entertaining, educational, experience at Ima last night. First of all our server, Dan, was fantastic. So attentive, knowledgeable, funny, charming, and delightful. The food! Melt in your mouth. The sake! Dassai 23, one of my favorites. Cannot wait to go back… tomorrow? Thank you!

    The food wasn’t flavorful. I didn’t realize the shabu shabu wagyu beef was cooked in a broth either (my mistake) but I wasn’t a fan of how it was prepared. It tasted plain. We also ordered many of the appetizers beforehand and they lacked flavor and substance too. Maybe fine dining is suppose to be plain but I was disappointed by the food (especially given the price). Overall, the dishes weren’t rememberable. The service was great though — the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

    Closest thing to eating IN Tokyo you’ll find in LA, I am convinced. Upon entering this very typical & unassuming building on the outskirts of the Rodeo Drive “zone”, you’ll be met with the steamy delicious aromas of bubbling umami broths & the calm, zen energy of a Japanese spa. For a quiet date night, this was perfect.

    Ima is a special restaurant. Food quality and beauty is overwhelming, innovative and simply delicious regardless of what you order. Service is impeccable and it always impresses me that the restaurant servers recall what we've ordered in prior visits. While not cheap, Ima is an experience not to miss.
