Even though we had a reservation at 9pm it took us 35 to 40 minutes to seat we got our table at 9:40pm and it took forever to get our food waiting 1 and half hour for 2 sushi rolls. The waiter realized how bad was the service after we asked them to cancel our order after 1 and half hour because we didn’t really want to eat after waiting that long and they offered us free Ice cream but we didn’t accept. Such a poor service so bad. Waste of money.

The Bartender RC was friendly.
The hostess was kind to take the cake we had for the occasion
The food was fresh, timely, and delicious.

Was Trolling Downtown with my girlfriend and ended up going to this place. Lemme tell you...Awesome, Bartenders Know how to pour a Real drink, sorry I forgot his name but he had no hair, :) but very friendly and knows how to put a good drink.
Our waitress Megan, was absolutely on point, and was very attentive. Even the Bus Boys, which I hate calling them that because the are an essential part of the service were very helpful.
I gotta say I have been to some of the best Sushi Bars in LA and this was a Gem.
I only giving it 4 Stars because I need to try some other dishes, but what I ate was super good. If in the area make sure you stop by for the view and the service...Again, Megan was our server and she was awesome

Beautiful decor, pleasant waitstaff, but long waits on host/hostess and waiters. The food is quite excellent, from the garlic edamame to the sashimi, rolls, Robata (grilled portions) all presented nicely, but simply amazing to taste. Inventive cocktails, but a very nice wine and sake list. I do suggest eating outdoors, though conversation from other diners and the noise of downtown can make it hard to hear. It's beautiful and an excellent experience overall.

Overall 5food 5service 3ambience 5

the only complaint I had, and that I communicated with management, is that the food was delivered to the table by randomly plopping it on the table by the back server, not the main server/waiter who was great. Whoever delivers the food should either know or ask who the dish is for as well as speak clearly about what it is being delivered, not mumble it in a barely audible tone. Much of what we ordered was family style and not guest specific, but the way the food was delivered felt like it was tossed on the table non-chalantly without much care. I've been to this spot multiple times for business lunch and this was my first dinner experience, and it was the first time I had a complaint about the service. I still highly recommend Takami.

We were seated so close to another couple. We asked for a different table and were told no tables were available but there was an empty table in front of us. We go there 2-3 times a year but it looks like we need to find another sushi spot!

Our reservations were cancelled at last minute to another restaurant so we decided last minute to reserve this restaurant. We celebrated our friends birthday here on a Saturday and it was quite fun. Even though we were running late on our reservation, the hostess was nice enough to still accommodate us. She sais no problem let me just set up the table again and it will be a few minutes which is was. Our server was really friendly and kind and the food arrived at a timely manner. I have been here many times but it was a first for my friends and they really enjoyed it. We ordered three rolls and the edamame to share and the portions were a good size for us to share between the four of us. The rolls were nothing out of the ordinary but the taste in my opinion were good for the price we paid. I then secretly informed our waitress that it was my friends birthday, she later showed up with a mini chocolate cake with ice cream that had a candle on it. Overall my friend really enjoyed her birthday dinner which was due to this place being a great choice.

The ambiance to food the staff everything was amazing. The bartender Joe made great recommendations I also had a dinner party here and worked with Taylor who met all of my needs and wants. Not only that she followed up after the fact to see if our experience was up to our standards. A must try is the Sea bass skewers, and for dessert the churro waffle and ice cream to die for. This place is great as will be back on a regular basis. Oh and don’t forget to go by elevate Lounge after dinner it’s perfect for a date night or a big party. Highly recommended.

Had a great dinner with friends. Food was delicious mostly had sushi rolls the best one that stood out to me was the Takami roll. It had just the perfect spice. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to go a little fancy on sushi. And you really can’t beat that view of the city.

Although the food isn't fully authentic Japanese, it was very tasty, thoughtfully prepared, festive, and the portions fit the prices. The sake menu is impressive. We never felt neglected by the staff, but not constantly interrupted, either. The cityscape view from the terrace is a big draw, and the mix of people was fun to watch and reflected an unstuffy LA crowd. As first-timers, we had trouble finding the entrance since none of the signage is backlit. We'd go back.

Paying for atmosphere certainly not food. If you like paying $20 for rice and probably an 1/8 of an ounce of fish and entitled atmosphere and doing you a favor hostess and cocktail waitress then so be it. Disappointing.
