Celebrated my mom and inlaw’s birthday. Food was really good. We love it. Nice view and you can park on the streets. They also have a cafe downstairs by the lobby.

I had vegetarian friendly options. Vegetable skewers, vegetable fried rice, and mango papaya salad were all good! Great vibe & wonderful service. Small plate options only.

We loved our dinner. Took my sister out for Mother's Day and we had the perfect night. Great view, nice ambimace so you chat , and food was great. The chef checked on us too.
It's not cheap, but the view in Hollywood and rooftop make it worth it.

Parking at the valet was really bad and we were late for our reservation. Otherwise the ambiance was nice and service was friendly. The food was really good but small portions and selection ideal for an afternoon drink away from the hustle and bustle.

This dinner was to celebrate a major milestone in my partner’s life. We were greeted warmly and promptly shown to a table we requested, with a view. Beautiful space! Mikey was our server and from the start he was kind, humorous, and informative. Genuinely outstanding service, and we had a blast chatting about food and lifestyle with him. We are so happy this pop-up is there to stay! We will put it into our regular rotation and be back with more friends, definitely.

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!

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.

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.

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.
