This is a wonderful restaurant with great food and drink and spectacular views. After 8:00 pm the environment becomes lively and fun. I would recommend to all as this is one of my favorites.

Came here for Anniversary dinner. In a high rise with a nice view of LA at night. Food was delicious, dim lighting with a lounge vibe. Pricey of course but we'd definitely come back for special occasions only.

This restaurant sits on the 21st floor of Los Angeles with spectacular views. The ambiance was extraordinary with the views and restaurant layout. The services was great from start to finish. The sushi quality was spot on and the dessert was a wonderful finish we had a churro style waffle with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup ala mode. We will be back again soon.

Your pretty much paying for a view. Waited for 15 minutes after being seated before we received service. It was most likely because we didn’t fit the profile of the usual people who dine at this establishment. All the service was quick after we stopped the server who had passed us over five times and asked to be served, but the energy had changed so we had left. I had just received a bonus and wanted to treat my wife to a great dinner. Might try it again another time.

Terrible service on the patio. Had to ask for a fork for appetizers from 3 separate people and the food ended up being cold that’s how long it took. Then for dinner, I also asked 3 people for extra sauce for my teriyaki chicken and by the time it got there it was cold/almost done. Very stuck up service and no one cares about you

Gorgeous view of DTLA, tableside dining alongside scenic backdrop. Wonderful wait staff, excellent food. Perfect way to spend the evening dining on top of LA eating some amazing sushi.

The bartender was fantastic. The server was great. The views were sensational. The food out of this world. We would absolutely return. Wonderful experience for my husband and i. The lychee martini was perfection. The rolls and the sashimi was just so fresh. 5 stars

It had been a while since I visited and am so glad I did. I live in the South Bay so my friend and I wanted an early dinner. The parking is a breeze with valet parking for $7 - unheard of in downtown. I started with a drink and some oysters while waiting, and the oysters were delicious, but not quite cold - which I found odd. They were good. The bartender was friendly, made great drinks and apologized profusely after having computer issues when running the check. Once seated we ordered the tuna on rice cake, the Japanese tacos, the spicy shrimp and the sea bass and rib eye robata. I have to say the spicy shrimp have changed from my recollection of them. I recall them being much bigger, and while okay, I would probably not order them again. Everything else was delicious. The robata was exquisite. The sea bass melted in your mouth - I could have eaten a dozen! The rib eye was so tender that chewing was optional. Both could be entrees. Our server was attentive and friendly, and even the busser was on it -removing each plate the moment the final morsel was removed. It's not cheap, and it doesn't taste like it. I will be making another reservation soon.

Fun spot with a good view of DTLA and beyond. Sushi is creative and great. A good choice for a pre show dinner as you can be done in 1 hour but still enjoy yourself.

Came here for dinner before our concert. I’ve been here before and loved this place. Great spot, with good food, good drinks, good crowd, and amazing views.

This experience: not impressed. At all. The manager came out and spoke with us, at which point everything was starting off great, but it was at the beginning of our experience- maybe he should wait for the latter part of the meal so people can really tell him what’s going on. Our server only came around once to check on us, and got our order wrong. When told, he said he’d fix- but never did, so we only got two thirds of our dinner. Lastly, we had to wait 25 minutes to get our check. Not happy.

I loved coming here. But if this is the service I can look forward to now, not coming back.

Takami is one of those restaurants that tends to leave an enduring and indelible impression long after
your dining experience. From the moment you enter and take in the city skyline to the impeccable attention paid to service to a well appointed / menu selection and finall,y but not least, is the food and presentation - what's not to like. Thanks again for a satisfying dining experience.

Lived in DTLA for 9 years and just discovered this place! Very simplified decor with a great (open window)view from the 21st floor. Food very good - we had shishito peppers, tofu and fried eggplant appetizers and the seared salmon sushi. No complaints about the service either. Will definitely go back!

Good sushi and some things like scallops were exceptional. But I felt pressured to order more and even more annoying was patronizing waitress. I was taking three millenials to dinner who have no money and as the senior person I made the reservation and planned to pay. When my thoughtful millennial surprised me by secretly paying half the check I was annoyed with waitress for not go ing ME the check and she was pretty snotty about it. "Our POLICY is to take payment from whoever hands it to us first." Cmon lady...this is L A
Show some class! Also, weirdly enough view is only good from alongside window...also, closes too early (10) and valet downstairs ce looking for us at 10. How about valet gives u time to get downstairs? Duh. Nice manager tho.

Nice view from outside of Downtown LA. A bit more expensive than I would have liked. restaurant is located more than 20 floors up in an office building. It was a bit hard to find from the street level as I was expecting to find the restaurant on the ground floor.
