WE WENT FOR LUNCH. THE PARKING STRUCTURE IS LOCATED ON THE DIFFERENT BUILDING.
WHAT MADE MORE CONFUSING IS THAT THERE WAS A SIGN SAYING THAT PARKING IS LOCATED ELSEWHERE. THEY SAID THAT THERE WAS A WRITING SAYING THAT THIS PARKING IS ONLY USED FOR EVENING, BUT SINCE WHAT WAS WRITTEN WAS TOO SMALL TO SEE IT WHILE DRIVING AROUND, IT CONFUSED US EVEN MORE..
IT IS A NICE PLACE, BUT MAY BE BETTER FOR EVENING OUTING..

We were celebrating a birthday and the food was outstanding as usual. However the restaurant seemed to be short-staffed and we experienced unusually long wait times between ordering drinks, appetizers, meals, dessert, and the check. Part of what you pay for in a quality restaurant is the service. And Takami’s missed the mark for our last visit. However, I would still recommend this place. Excellent complementary birthday dessert platter!

Seated, waited 20 mins just to get water and to order drinks. Server did not ask once if the food was good or if we needed anything. Runner dropped food on our table and didn’t clean it. I saw they gave 5 star service to the table next to us, because it was a big table and they get tipped more. Overall disappointing

Never fails to deliver an outstanding and memorable experience. Food was top notch, service friendly, efficient and accommodating. There's no beating the view and the feeling of being "inside-outside" 21 stories over downtown.

Food was Ok, crowd was trendy, a bit rude and inconsiderate. Probably individuals with nightclub attitude because there’s a night club right next-door . Arrived at 7 o’clock, sat in the glass lounge area, was extremely dirty from the previous occupants and only one waitress serving the glass lounge area. Overall it was an OK experience, but probably will not return.

Really good food. They have three kitchens - one for sushi, one for Robata, and one for small plates and entrées. Their sashimi is super fresh and beautifully presented. The Robata skewers we’re also very very good. Great views of downtown Los Angeles with a half glass, half open air outer wall that makes you feel like you’re on a rooftop without being in the direct sunlight. I highly recommend this place for business or social dining.

Loved the place, the food and the scenery. Beautiful at night. Dress code isnt an issue but the server took a long time to come back, and even almost forgot to put my salad order in. He had to come to my table to ask me i requested something to be sure he actually did it. The hostess who sat us was very pleasant and wished us a happy anniversary, which was nice.

We were there to celebrate a birthday and the staff was awesome. The food was incredibly tasty, especially the Alaskan King Crab. This was our first time and we will be back.

One of my pet peeves is when a waiter delivers your check at the end of the meal and disappears. Takami has solved that issue. They use a computerized check system called Table Safe. This is the best thing ever. You can enter your card, get an email or paper receipt in moments and be on your way. As we were headed to a play, this little device helped us stay on time without having to rush. It was a good night.. Thanks Takami

The food here was outstanding and creative. I don't like mayo, and sometimes sushi restaurants can be difficult about making accommodations if the food is premade, but everything I selected, they modified and made absolutely scrumptious. It was fresh and the presentation was beautiful. Everyone from the hostess to the bussers were friendly and my drink never went unfilled. Can't wait to go back!

Food was great! Service was good until it came to paying. We were presented with an electronic device to process our payment. Then the server disappeared and wasn’t there to help when we encountered problems with it. It felt like a very rude and impersonal payment system. Like the self check-out aisle in a supermarket, except this is supposed to be a nice restaurant, not Vons or CVS. I expected full service based on the price I paid for lunch.
