Hostesses were great and accommodating. Arrived early so they directed us to the Lounge to wait until they opened. We were chatting away didn't notice the time, but the hostess came to find us and seat us right away. We preferred a table with less traffic and the hostess was able to find a different table with no problem. Our server was great and very attentive. We were able to enjoy our conversation with the food and drinks coming at the right time. Everything was delicious. Creamy rock shrimp was tasty, i love me some sunomono, we had yellowtail carpaccio, and Toro sashimi, we also had rainbow roll, California, Crab Roll and Yuzo Tiger Roll. For desert we ended with an apple spring roll. Delicious food, great ambiance, nice views, and great company.

Haven’t been here in a couple years, I remember the service being great here… and this time around not so much. Definitely lacking in their service dept, food took forever, hosts seemed uninterested in seating us, they had us waiting for 25 mins while they just chatted away, when I finally went to ask to be seated they were like “oh yeah, we can seat u now”… soooo how long was that table available for? Lol I was confused as to why they had us waiting there for no reason. The food took forever but it was good. Drinks were good as well, but again, the service was pretty bad.

The food was okay! Just that “okay”. The set up of the restaurant was really nice, which made the experience worth the money! The lounge area was nice, relaxing, and inviting. I wouldn’t come back to the restaurant only the elevate lounge area if anything. The manager of the restaurant wasn’t to pleased when I wanted to send my dish back because I didn’t like it. He stated, that it wasn’t in the restaurants protocol to send unliked items back to the kitchen. So management contributed to the 3 stars I rated this place and the decline in the rating experience overall.

I’ve been here a few times. I love the ambience. The food is a little pricey and there are a few items that are very good and then there are a few that are just OK. The service is very spotty and at times had a very long waits. When we told the server that there was a food allergy, he seemed very unsure about whether he would be able to talk to the chef about it. It did not make us feel confident. The service is never excellent during any of our visits. It’s always a little spotty. Sometimes the manager has to get involved and he seems to do a good job following up on things, but it shouldn’t have to rely on him stepping in. Anyway, regardless of all of this, it’s still one of my daughters favorite restaurants so we come here quite often.

One of the best places I’ve been to since the pandemic. Andrew the manager made our experience worth while as well as his entire staff.
The food was excellent, all specialty sushi rolls did not disappoint. The popcorn shrimp and to call me edamame deserve special mansions as well as all the desserts. One of the best views in downtown LA as well.

I had high expectations but was not impressed. 10 dollar parking. We were sat very close together with others. App the food was bland, no flavor and no presentation. The place looks a little run down. The seats were torn and the frosted glass obstructed the view. It was chilly and the heaters were not turned in. The server was nice and she really tried but the food itself was so bad. Not worth the price. We ended up still feeling hungry and went across the street to eat Ramen which was deliciously by the way.

Our server made the entire experience flawless. Megan was extremely helpful, she truly went above and beyond to make sure our party was well taken care of. I would go back just to have her service again. It was a girls night and she felt like the best fit for us. Food was fantastic, view was beautiful and the company was even better. THANK YOU MEGAN!

Ate at restaurant yesterday for dinner. It's a bit tricky to find building to get in if you follow Google maps (walking from parking) had to call restaurant to confirm entrance. Once we got in we were seated pretty fast. We ordered food and everything came out fast too. We loved the sashimi and steak. The sushi wasn't the best but it was good. Our waitress was nice and our over all service/experience was great.

we were celebrating my mother’s birthday here like we usually do every year. Only thing different this year was the service. This was the least packed i had ever seen takami but it still felt like we were not being helped to our servers best manners. I completely understand it’s covid, but our ice cream almost melted before we got our spoons to eat our dessert.

This is my second visit to Takami. Everything from the food to the ambiance and service waa spotless. The only suggestion I have is to make those drinks stronger. I am a lightweight social drinker, and these drinks were straight juice. The concepts for the drinks are fabulous, but they are very bland and weak. Other than that, a beautiful place to eat. I can't wait Elevate (club adjacent to Takami) to open back up; beautiful and vibrant club to visit after you've finished your meal.

Took my gf here for dinner tonight because it was marked as a romantic spot on opentable and she likes sushi. Everything about this place is mediocre. Service, food, drinks. The only thing that it has going for it is the view.

When I checked in, I made sure the hostess knew it was a birthday and she assured me they got it. We had the meal and our server and busboy kept asking if we were done while there's still plenty of food on the plate. When we finally finished she just brought the check.... Wanted the dinner to be memorable but we just had horrible experience with mediocre food. Not recommended!

Great experience. While the sushi wasn’t as fresh as other local places that are similarly priced (blue fin, sugarfish) the ambiance and city views made up for it! Also, fabulous drink menu!

The alcoholic drinks were good, the food was ok, service was minimal. We had one glass of water served and with empty glasses visible, refills were never offered, even when taking order requests. Hopefully your experience is better than ours.

Hostess and front staff were rather....not nice.

They ask you to wait at the bar and order drinks, but then they tell you you can't take off your mask to drink your drink.

They have strange rules like 90 minute time limit that the hostess tells you starts as soon as you are seated. (Yeah....)

The food was fairly average. Not bad, not good. Definitely not japanese, more Americanized style. Sushi was fine.

Ambience was great. Excellent views.

Valet parking is convenient. But they close at 10pm

Prices were much higher than the quality of the food. You're paying for the view I guess.

Our waitress was great. Loved her.

Wouldn't recommend unless you are just looking for the view.

Excellent ambiance and service. Great place for a celebration as it's on the quieter side even when it's busy. Food is elegantly prepared and delicious with good portion sizes for the value. It was very slow as the resto was packed, but our waiter was attentive and took good care of us. A bottle of Domaine was perfect for our graduation celebration! Gets super cold outside, so don't worry if you're inside by a window, you'll still have a nice experience. Easy $10 valet parking downstairs, then take the elevator to the 21st floor.
