We celebrated my friend's bday. The menu offered a variety. The food was tasty and well priced; the drinks were delicious and easy on the eyes. Our server was so personable. The ambience was very romantic.

Sushi was good, robata was mediocre. They were definitely understaffed and the server had too many tables. The server didn't even give us the time of day and never came by our table more than one time. He came to take our order and that was it - food was delivered by other people also. He didn't even ask if we wanted drink refills or anything when our glasses were clearly sitting there empty. The manager came by and started helping us out from the beginning then the server "took over" and we never got any service from him so we told the manager who then came and finished up with us again. He was great but the server was not. Our drinks were not even refilled by the server and after such horrible service and having to tell the manager again you would think they would at least comp the second round of drinks or something but they didn't.

This restaurant has great vibes. The staff are great, very friendly but the service is slow. The views on the patio are beautiful and the drinks are delicious. Unfortunately, the sushi was bad. It was probably the worst I've ever had which is unfortunate because I loved everything else about this place.

Everything was great about the restaurant. The location, food and service was top notch. The only thing was the long wait to get seated. We had a reservation for 8PM and didn’t get seated till 8:40. Luckily my boyfriend and I didn’t have any plans afterwards but if we did who knows if we would of been able to still dine in since we got seated almost an hour after our reservation.

This swanky sushi joint is hipster approved. I went on a Friday night, it seems very classy and trendy. Food was very good. Service was great.

Took forever to get our food. We were asking for our check and they were still trying to bring out the rest of our order. The quality of the fish was ok. Drinks were good. Took forever to waive down our server. I would only recommend the spot for the view.

In our 2 hours at the restaurant, our waiter checked on us only twice: the only reason we stayed for that long was to not ruin a birthday celebration anymore than it already was as it would have been impossible to get reservations anywhere else due to such short notice during COVID.

It was not crowded and it took almost 30 minutes to take our order, another 30 minutes for our order to arrive, another 30 minutes before they checked on us again and we order a bit more, but that never comes and after two hours of being there, we just paid and left.

Food was the worst, not only were the portions super small, but the taste was terrible. This restaurant must be a tourist trap. As a native Angelino, the quality of food was the worst ever.

Mediocre at best in terms of food choices and taste. Nothing special, nothing great, edible and everything was eaten that was ordered.
The views were cool with it being at the top level of a building which was a big perk of the place. Other than that, probably won’t come again cause there are better places to spend money on.

A fabulous experience for my date and I. It was really great to eat robata for the first time. And to see that they really did enforce the COVID-19 restrictions. Nice viewpoint of LA as well.

I absolutely love this restaurant. I’ve gone twice now (within 3 weeks) because I enjoy it so much — not just the food but also the vibe. The staff is friendly, which is so appreciated because that isn’t always common at other restaurant.

I rarely review anything, selfishly. I don't want people to crowd my spots! TAKAMI has been near & dear to me for a good while. The set up, high above DTLA is naturally Covid friendly. The inside/outside feel you get is like NOTHING else in DT LA, there's others but, you're either too low & can't really appreciate the skyline or, enclosed & are looking out windows. Aside from the ambiance, the food is always on point & brought to you fresh from the fire. I had the Shrimp Robata for the 1st time & it almost burned my tongue. There's a desert package for $150 which seems steep, but, it gets you a lounge table & a bottle of bubbly on a night that Takami might be out of reservations - I highly recommend to anyone as a treat for a hard worked week & NO I'm not telling you what the best tables in the house are, you'll have to figure them out like I did! Anyway, I'll be back - A LOT. Stay away if you don't appreciate the best LA has to offer, otherwise you're all welcome to crowd my spot.

As a seafood lover the crab roll that I ordered did not smell fresh. I expected more of a better taste as well. The presentation was great. The miso soup was amazing it was the best miso soup I ever had. Due to the outstanding customer service and beautiful overall visual of the restaurant I will be back soon to give it another chance. Hopefully the food tastes as good as it looks the second time I come around.

Food was slooooooow to come out. Our server was almost friendly enough. 10pm was last call to place order for food n drinks shortly after that. Great location but I think the staff could try harder at greeting customers and checking on them.

Takami is always a pleasure to go to. The only problem I had this time our waiter was out of it. He took our drink order and that took a good 20 min to arrive, he would swing by and say ill be back with the appetizers Huh? We didn't order that ... When he came with the drinks he realized we didn't order appetizer then he said last call for food and drinks....We didn't order and he was rushing for last call.....Crazy night? Crazy waiter?

This was an incredibly disappointing experience. The food was the best part, and it was mediocre. I was trying to show my friend from the east coast a nice time with a high class sushi place, so this just really failed. The waiter came by maybe 3 times the entire night. The smoke alarm went off and stayed on for up to 10 minutes. Nothing was done to apologize or address that. There wasn’t really even an ambiance to even speak of. The view was pretty but the crowd was sparse and it didn’t feel like the staff knew we were there. I complained at the end of the night because all four of us in my party were really put off by the poor service and mediocre food. The manager tried to remedy the situation by cutting down our bill and offering his card for if we ever return. But I don’t plan on going back. I originally had a reservation at Catch LA, and I changed it to try something new. I wish I would’ve stuck with my original choice.
