Outstanding food..sushi quite good, robata is the best..vegetables, seafood, meatballs, way guy and of course the shrimp toast....noise level is outrageously high...bring ear plugs...
Always a brilliant restaurant. Staff are on point in spite of a hectic environment with dishes going everywhere. Food is delicious - keep it up!
Great food, rude waiter (supervisor). The music too high.
Great Service! I highly recommend the Happy Hour menu
Great Happy Hour Menu. It is a great casual place with reasonable price and good quality food. Inside is too noisy.
Good food a little loud for me but overall good spot
first time there. great place, great vide, great food.
I will definitely go back.
Food came out all at once ... was like a bombardment
Server was not paying attention to the tables all the time. They let bunch of 2-5 yrs old at patio seat and ruined the scene.
Really good quality sushi and yakitori at great prices. Happy hour is an amazing value.
Great location and outstanding food / service. I highly recommend, try the wagyu steak.
We love this place.
Seated quickly, kindly fed quickly, will go more then three times a week if I can!
We come almost every week for their ramen. It has to be some of the best I’ve ever had.
Very disappointed with Robata Jinya. We are frequent diners to this restaurant for special occasions or just for everyday dining. However, the service significantly declined, we had to call the attention and remind our server a few times to follow up on our orders, from the meals to the drinks. The appetizer and another roll we ordered came towards the end of the meal and their excuse was that the waiter delivered our orders to another table, so who's gonna pay for that order? The menu has also changed, servings are relatively smaller, like the california roll for example, 8 tiny pieces cut to about less than an inch, what happened to the contents of the roll? where's the avocado, crab meat and the other ingredients that makes up a california roll? They were so minute that you'd think they were from a kids meal. The meat on their tapa/skewers also shrank in size and quantity. A simple miso soup order arrived in a tiny-tiny bowl compared to previous times we would order this soup. What happened to the Robata quality? No wonder there were so many available seats open.
I usually like to sit outside because the inside is a bit dark/loud. Food is very good. Happy hour dishes are good deals.
service was good everything but the sushi was amazing
One of the best yakitori places! Everything we ordered was delicious! Fun energy and attentive service - we will be back for more!
My friends and I have ordered from Robata Jinya plenty of times for dinner delivery and never been disappointed (food comes well-packaged, flavors are on-point, overall delicious). This was our first time going to the restaurant in person, and unfortunately we will not be coming back and instead stick to ordering. We ordered a lot of favorites - and were served old meat (the foie grois was particularly unappetizing), sashimi that was poorly cut and not fresh, very undercooked miso eggplant that had little flavor, the list goes on. The service was also not exactly on par for the night either. It was just disappointing overall - especially given how much we enjoy delivery from Robata.
Love the food and enjoy seating on the patio. I come here about once a month and have always enjoyed the food. One complaint is that the owner insists on playing loud music all the time and it makes it difficult to talk. Patio is quieter, but still too annoyingly loud. The food is good enough to put up with the noise, but would go more often if quieter.
The food and service are always constantly good. I eat here a lot, and the shrimp toast is incredible.
Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, it was our first time coming to Robaya Jinya, & my first time trying Japanese cuisine. The food was delicious, creative, and fresh! Each small plate was timed perfectly in between one another, we were able to try many items on the menu. Our server Bobby was extremely professional, friendly, and very helpful in guiding us through the menu. He was very knowledgeable of the menu items. My boyfriend said this was by far his favorite birthday dinner thus far!
More expensive and less value on the menu. Portions smaller, price higher. I suppose it's the pressure of rising costs. That will end with the next recession and the birth of lower cost alternatives. Used to be our favorite sushi place.
It’s great. I love this place I wish the music was softer and that they would bring back some of the old dishes
Great as always
Come here relatively often, and every time is better than the last. Inventive dishes, delicious food, and super friendly and accommodating staff. (I always opt for the counter seating so I can see the sushi chefs working away!)
My wife and I came to Robata Jinya for their Ramen. The Creamy Vegan Ramen. We love it! But every time we come we also find awesome appetizers. The edamame is awesome, subtle spice and the right amount of Garlic. And their skewers are very good. We've had the pork belly, salmon, and chicken skewers and they are all great. And come with a nice trio of dipping sauces. A cilantro lime of some sort, a spicy option, and a wasabi like sauce. All choice. I've already recommended family to this place.
Excellent food, nice ambience and very good service. Highly recommended!
This is my second experience here.
1st Time was very horrible so we didn’t come back almost 1 year.
The server was not bad but when we open Sake bottle she didn’t even open the cap.
So we cut our hand cuz of cap.
This is so sad no one educate to open the bottle for customers?
We won’t sue them but they supposed to change it immediately.
We’ve dined here several times- it’s now a go-to for us!
This place is always great! I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have fun
And enjoy delicious food.
Very favorable past experience was reason to come again. Menu change left off our favourite items of the past. We were disapointed.
Best izakaya in Los Angeles. Great value from 5-7.
Vegan raman is alone worth the trip. Great service from a lovely staff that welcomes you and makes you feel at home.
Great food and excellent service
Must try: Foie Gras as appetizer. Crispy sweet rice sushi rice topped with Foie gras - simply amazing.
Robata was certainly one of the best Sushi places in LA for a long time. We used to go at least twice a week. However, since last year, something has changed. Every time we go, we say never again. We stopped going for 6 months, and we heard it's got better again. This time we tried it and it was just OKAY, nothing like last year but not disastrous either (like few months ago)
Robata is no longer the same as it used to be.
I prolly won’t go back but it’s good to try I liked the ambiance and service .. very clean and organized nice decoration
This is the second time I have been to Robata Jinya and once again I was not disappointed. My teenage son is not easily impressed and the food blew him away. The small plates are so delicious and great for sharing. The Miso Black Cod is to die for! The Salmon with Mushroom Truffle sauce is also a favorite. The bite sized portions on skewers means you can try a wide variety of dishes and not get too full. Make a reservation because they are always busy. Once you order, the food comes quickly one dish after the other. The seating inside is a little too tight for my liking so I like to dine on the patio and it has heat lamps.
Great server, every runner was cordial. Every course brought out was better than the last.
The yakitori is some of the best in town. The restaurant is low key with a hip and sexy vibe. They do not have a full bar, but we tried their lychee martinis and they were great. My favorite dishes of the night were the salmon belly and the steak and garlic. They also had a fish belly sampler that was to die for. Everything we tried was spot on. Our server was quick and professional.
