As a long time fan of JaneQ, YakiQ takes it to the next level - literally! Everything from the stunning rooftop views, calm yet hip atmosphere and refreshingly innovative dishes and cocktails, YakiQ is second-to-none. This restaurant also consistently has the best service and most personable team in LA. Don’t second guess making a reservation - just do it. You won’t be sorry!

Everything was good. One note: They told us some items were “definitely shareable” and they were definitely not 😂 other than that it was fine. The food was delicious!! (Not for sharing) Drinks were just ok

I was unaware that this was a pop up on a 5th floor rooftop but the drinks were bland, the food was not good at all (rice was hard and wagyu sandwich was fried on outside but medium rare inside with no flavor) so we sent it back

We still paid $170 for a barely eaten dinner for two and two rounds of drinks (after removal of the wagyu) and ended up going to another restaurant to have a great dinner for half the price afterward.


Limited menu. food was not good and ultimately was a really disappointing experience

Jane Q downstairs and Ever Bar on the lobby level were basically weekly stops for us (if not almost daily), and going back and being treated like family was a hell of a homecoming after quarantine. It’s sparkling clean, staff is kind and considerate and you feel like you can somehow have a break from everything with this casual rooftop spot. Also, the food is AH-MAZING.

cute idea, room service being served on the roof with a flare. kind of chilly and not too much food to choose from but they try hard and overall pretty decent.

The food was simply amazing. The chef came over to our table and could not have been more gracious. The view was lovely.

Now, the cons. It was very cold. One heat lamp for every two tables is not enough. The somewhat passive aggressive server/host commented that this is winter in LA, assuming we were tourists. It was very rude. Then when he saw how much we were ordering, he changed his tune quite quickly. I guess he realized if he wanted a nice tip, passive aggressive behavior isn’t the best plan?

I would honestly follow this chef anywhere. The food was that good.

Menu is spot-on for location (rooftop)---Chef does an incredible dish with Wagu as well as lobster. Fresh and authentic presentation. I strongly recommend and will be going back. Impressive Chef. Very impressive.

Surprising deliciousness on a rooftop in Hollywood. Would love some different musical vibes , but that’s about the only change I would make. Obviously can get breezy and cool but it is Winter so check your weather before making your reservation.

Awesome service and great Chef. We felt safe all the way, all the table were spaced out. The food is amazing, the skewers super tasty and all the side dishes creative and really good. The hamachi is the best according to me. The glaze you can chose from were delish.

Food and service was incredible. Yes there are not enough heat lamps, but being from LA we dressed for the weather so it wasn’t an issue. It seems the heat lamp issue isn’t specific to these guys and would highly suggest bracing any weather issues for a meal here.

The food was delicious - still dreaming about the hamachi and the papaya salad, the service was wonderful, the ambiance was perfect and the value was on point. The yakitori was perfectly cooked and so much bigger in size than expected which meant I over-ordered which we ate all of but were stuffed. Love this pop up and so excited that they are going to be open for the rest of the year. I will be back often!

The service was by far the worst I have ever experienced in LA. My husband and I were wanting to find a nice rooftop that we had not been to before. We live right across the street at the argyle and were excited to try out the food. We had a reservation and the restaurant had only 15 customers seated at the time and we had to wait an extra 20 minutes to be seated. Then to our surprise they sat us at a wet table. The menu is terrible we left right away

Newly opened, a fun addition to the neighborhood. Great new outdoor patio, friendly service, and the Yakitori were delicious. One tip, there is metered parking on the street or you can pull in to the driveway, pay at the front desk, and park in the hotel parking for $11.
