Sora is absolutely one of my favorite sushi places to visit in Downtown Los Angeles. A big thank you to their staff who surprised our group with a dessert since we were celebrating a special occasion. You can't beat the all you can eat sushi lunch or the views.

The view is amazing, the front desk staff is eh, the service is non existent, sushi rolls are warm, sashimi is warm, wasabi is old looking, ginger is dry and already browning! This place had potential but was ruined by the quality

It is $45 all you can eat. But Very less food on the belt. Waiting for more than 10 mins for a food coming out from a empty belt.

You can't beat the value, view, and atmosphere of Sora. I was impressed with the quality as well. I had a business lunch and the conveyor belt was always stocked and my clients were pleased. If someone wanted a particular sushi, they were happy to make it for you. If you are a sushi "snob", lunch may not be for you. Take a look at the menu or call Sora if you have questions on their sushi variety of the day.

Service was very poor, charged me corkage so I could serve myself. Table was also poor which I thought would be impossible with a view from floor 69. Empty restaurant and they sat us at the bar, but there was no hostess there to greet us upon arrival. Then they closed 1 hour after our reservation time. The experience was a C- and I would never go back, there’s millions of sushi restaurants in LA do yourself a favor and skip Sora.

Divine from food to service to the very high in the sky ambiance Your choice of a booth or all you can eat conveyor belt thing which didn’t appeal to us so we went booth and had a wonderful time. Looking forward to returning soon. Especially on a clear day for the incredible views from 70 stories high.

Great view
Very good quality seafood
Not that much variety in the offerings, but everything was well executed
Quite a few vegetarian/vegan options
Service was not good. It took 10 minutes to get our wasabi and ginger and drink order. Our check took longer.
I would still go back for a fancy lunch.

This restaurant has a good location with a nice view @ floor 69. But the food is opposite with the view.
The music is almost gone, instead of hearing music, we just hear people around talk and laugh too loud. I don't think it's good for a date.
We order a special meal from Chef... It's new year eve. For the first course, I think it's appetizer, and it's terrible. I think I can get much much better from any restaurant in Japanese town. Cold and the taste is not good as I expect from this restaurant with that cost. About the main course is something that again, we always can get better sashimi or sushi from any restaurant.
I never write anything in review part, usually i just check the stars and that's it. But this restaurant really need to improve their food.

Great place for a romantic evening! Get a boot, although the conveyor belt is fun also! It is high end literally! If you visit in that state, the spicy food is the way to go AND you’ll enjoy the level (69floors) you’re on! Enjoy! Cheers!

The service was slow even there were very little guest during lunch time. In terms of food, I was expecting fresher ingredients used for the sushi bar. Some of the wraps that past on the conveyer belt became unraveled. The options dwindled down as most guestbarrived and the desert items were poorly replenished. Our server had seemed to take long on getting our dishes out of the way and refil our drinks. It’s important to mention that there is a $2 charge for ponzu sauce which is unbelievable. Plus validation only covers two hours and you still have to pay $11 plus tip down at the garage.

Would not recommend.

I came here to celebrate my moms birthday and it was beautiful. We opted for the all you can eat sushi from the conveyor belt. The only thing was that the selection was VERY VERY limited. They also did not have a great selection of hot food. However despite all the negatives our server washed it all away with her great spirit and energy. I would definitely come here again and try the sit down menu.

Nice view and worth going for the view. However, the sushi/rolls there are very average. Service was good. My kid's pasta came out really late as it was coming from a different restaurant and the staff was apologetic about it and gave us a $4 discount on the kid's meal. The food is somewhat disappointing. But good value - expect $40 per person for a set sushi dinner which is not bad for an atmosphere like that.

A Japanese restaurant that serves sushi and sashimi should have its chef’s adequately trained in the process of deboning. There was a bone in the poorly prepared sashimi platter. I did not bring it up to the staff’s attention as I did not want it to be confused with possibly seeking a discount.

Sushi was good for the price and experience and as expected not comparable to the higher tier sushi places in Los Angeles
It does meet the expectations for the value of the money
Clean and very well presented
Some requests made and all granted ... fun part
Ambassadors for IHG... well treated
Made me go back for more
