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.

Lovely experience, I have been here pre-covid and it was nice then but even better with the completely open aesthetic they now have in maintains with COVID restrictions. Everyone has to try the baked scallops on the half shell. Simply delectable. The server and staff was wonderful and made our mother daughter date night overly enjoyable.

I would highly suggest booking ahead of time and come by and enjoy sushi on the rooftop of downtown during the evening to get beautiful photos of the sunset. Food was great but they didn’t have many chef specialties due to covid messing up their shipment. But I would definitely come back.

Went there to celebrate my BD. We had a reservation and even tho we had a reservation and they insist you arrive on time. We had to wait over an hour to be seated. Food was good a little overpriced for what it is. Drink were ok however there was not desert being serve that night according to the hostes. Ohh and especial request seem to be ignored. Music was very loud I couldn’t heard the person next to me.
And I was late to my next event because after we requested the check they took too long to bring the check.
The only satisfying experience was with the lovely lady that was our Waitress.

First, our server took a while to come take our drink orders. Once we put in the drinks, we didn’t receive it until about 20 minutes later. Meanwhile Our server never came back to take our food order. We waited about 20-25 minutes just to get our order put in. She brought out the wrong masago when I asked for the little masago that comes in top of the rolls. She brought the big salmon eggs in nigiri style. We told her about it so after about 20 mins, she brought out the correct masago but it was in nigiri style again. We wanted it by itself on top of the crunch roll. However, We were almost done with our roll so we said we didn’t want it anymore and she apologized. She said the angus filet was like steak but didn’t mention it came on a skewer which disappointed me. The food was displayed very beautifully but the quality was not as expected. Loved the view but would probably not reserve there again.

The service was good! We were very disappointed with the food quality! Even the miso soup wasn’t good, specially for the price! On top of that the fire alarm went off for a good 20min. Maybe once the pandemic is over things might be better but I wouldn’t come go back!

The appetizers are excellent! We had the hand rolls and the Japanese tacos, which had a generous amount of crab.

The robata grill meats and veggies are overpriced and underwhelming. Very underwhelming!

The sushi was fresh, I just wish the slabs of fish on the nigiri were more generous for the price.

Great drink selection and they're delicious!

The rooftop view was unmatched. So lovely! A whole vibe. I'd go back for drinks, appetizers and the view.

The food and atmosphere were both perfect. We purposely went at 6:30 to make sure we saw the sunset. It was beautiful. Best views in DTLA. The lamb Robata is my favorite. My dad loved the sea bass.
