    Simply fantastic! The waiter was phenomenal - what a hard worker, my gosh! We were all very impressed by him. The food was ecclectic and delicious. Presented beautifully and full of flavor. Great dinner before we headed to the Hollywood Bowl! Thank you

    A beautiful perch above the city and the server warm and attentive. The food- almost every dish- was seriously disappointing. It was over fried, over flavored and too much sugar in every dish. The menu is ambitious and I hope they are able to improve the quality.

    Our reservation time ran late because they were short staffed but it was ok with us because it’s such a nice place to sit and talk. Once we were able to order everything was PERFECT. Food was delicious, service was great, prices are good. Can’t wait to go back.

    Stunning! We’d like it to remain a “secret” but it’s also important to shout from the 5th Floor of the Kimpton hotel how amazing the food was. We will be back again and again, can’t wait for brunch!

    I was disappointed because to my surprise I arrived at the hotel lobby and was told that the restaurant didn’t open that evening. My date was ruined and I was embarrassed thinking that I had made a reservation. I don’t understand why I would be allowed to make a reservation if the restaurant was closed.

    Amazing restaurant. The service is absolutely incredible everyone is so friendly. We met two serves who were brothers and they talked highly of their boss and workplace. The head chef came over and greeted us when we sat down. Amazing environment to eat at with the freshest food. Perfect for a date or going out with some friends.

    Kind of a cool hidden away place---rooftop at the Kimpton Hotel in Hollywood. Food was delicious, and the chef even made the rounds himself to check in on us. The wait staff was a bit overwhelmed, with two servers serving the entire rooftop, but the short rib buns were great, as was the crab pasta. i think this is a hidden gem.

    Wow! What an Amazing experience! Where do I begin…the service was top notch! The host , our waiter Riley alone will bring us back again. The food was fantastic with an open air kitchen and flavors emanating thru the night air. So many choices and also Dairy Free /Gluten Free options which is very difficult to find. Definitely think of Yaki for a Special occasion, Date Night , Outdoor Dining experience and so much more. Maybe you just want to experience an amazing staff and feel like the truly love making your experience is they best ever!

    We were staying at the Kimpton to see Hamilton at the Pantages. We wanted a relaxed dinner and Yaki Q was perfect. We had the hamachi, lobster and corn takoyaki, pork belly, and ono. It was perfect for the two of us. Pork Belly was our favorite. And the rooftop patio was great.
