It was just MEH.. wednesday night out we were celebrating my husband's birthday, which i specified in my online reservation and also told Andrew the manager, and no attempt was made to make our evening any more special than a casual night out.. Food and drinks were pricey, which is expected from a restaurant on the 21st floor in downtown LA, but what bothered us was that our server was just going through the motions. He seemed to be on a permanent break (was no where around when we needed him), the bus boys and food delivery guy were the only ones that really served us. Got one of the first things we ordered wrong, had to send it back. At a higher end restaurant i would at least expect him to come around and ask if we would like a second round (especially since we are celebrating..) nope. Had to have one of the bus boys flag him down to ask for a second round.

Was expecting a lot more and was just left a little disappointed. Step up your customer service game (overall) if you expect people to pay the higher prices for mediocre sushi that you can get anywhere else in LA. Thats all.

Walking through an alley and passed a dumpster from the valet to the entrance started off our evening. We were seated and told that Thursday nights are half off wine bottles and sake bottles. I should have mentioned at that time that I purchased a Groupon – please note the Groupon was just $100 for $60 meanin Walking through an alley and past the dumpster from the valet to the entrance started off our evening. We were seated and told that Thursday nights are half off wine bottles and sake bottles. Our waiter was lovely and knowledgeable. The food came out randomly and sporadically, some of it was delicious and some of it was flat out awful. Our waiter graciously offered to take items off our bill that we didn’t like or replace them so that was very nice. However, the fact that some food was great and Sam was in edible truly means that we will never eat there again. Our bill for five people Dash three adults and two children – was over $350. Absolutely outrageous.

The restaurant commands attention upon entering, especially the view. All staff member encountered were very friendly and our waiter was extremely helpful in describing the entrees we were interested in. All our food selections were delicious. The king crab rolls were my favorite. The sauce brought out distinctive flavors in the crab that I totally loved. To drink I had the lychee mojito. This drink is delightful and enjoyable. If you like lycee this is a must-try drink.

I thought that the price was a bit too much for the amount of sushi we were served. Also there was a lot of wind outside where we were sitting and they did not shift us to another table.

We love Takami! Beautiful date night spot. Gladys was our server and took really good care of us. All the managers came by our table to check on us throughout the night. Our favorite dishes were the lemon roll, yuzu tiger roll, peppered ahi tuna, and the salmon carpaccio. The lychee martini was delicious too! Looking forward to another fun night out there soon!

Father daughter date night. I used Open table and asked for a window table. They hooked us up and the waiter portioned out a delicious menu of Takami's best dishes for us to enjoy. Views were spectacular and a wonderful date night with my kid!!! We'll be back!

TaKami is a very nice restaurant. The ambience is very sofisticated, and there are outside tables with a view to the LA Skyline. Prices are above average for a Japanese restaurant. Service was not so good. waiter disapearing. Dirty dishes, drinks (beer and coca cola) taking quite a while to arrive (almost 10 mins). It was a nice place but service needs to be improved. Restaurant was not even half full.

It had been a long time since I took myself and my date to such a nice place. A bit pricey for me so I won't go often but my time there was worth it. My date and I enjoyed a open window table with a great view. The staff was wonderful and attentive. Exceptional in every regard. We really enjoyed Andrew, the GM, as he was making rounds checking on his guests. We got him to stop again at our table and we shared stories and jokes. Got that old school feeling like they care. And the food was great. Especially the Robata! We were the last to leave and they never rushed us out. For me it was a special night out I will always remember.

Waiters were great
Food was good but not great. Sushi was fresh. I enjoyed that the most. I didn’t think the other types of plates were so great. Oversauced and too complex.
I am a Japanese foodie and this was more of a fusion restaurant.

The food was fantastic, we enjoyed everything we ordered. The waitress we had was very friendly and helpful too, but we found that service took a long time- perhaps they were under-staffed that day (Sunday). There was a party going on which caused the noise levels to be high, and a weird draft which felt strange coupled with the heaters at full-blast above our table. So that made the ambiance a little uncomfortable.
We also mentioned in our reservation that we were celebrating our engagement, but no one ever acknowledged it. And the hostess at the door was a little rude. The bartender on duty ignored us mid-order to speak to another customer too, so that put a little bit of a damper on the night. But the food was good enough that we would go back.

Takami was an amazing place to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. The food was extremely tasty and satisfying. The drinks we ordered were also extremely well made and each had a particular flair to them. I also appreciated the fact that the Manager, Ace, came around and introduced himself to each table. He also help light a candle on the chocolate cake we order for my girlfriend's birthday. I was truly impressed with the overall experience!

Ace, the manager, was the best! He was incredibly welcoming from the start and led everyone to their table. He introduced himself pleasantly and welcomed us to the restaurant. Ace gave incredible recommendations and all of the food was sushi. Ace was aware of what every guest was feeling and adjusted the restaurant to better fit everyone’s needs. He even offered us blankets when it hit chilly! I highly recommend this spot for any special occasion, delicious sushi, delicious dessert, or an incredible view of downtown LA. We’ll be sure to come back here soon!
