Great Ambience,

Went there for the sushi. The fish was very fresh and the service was good. The best part is the ambience. No matter where you sit you have a great view of Los Angeles. Definitely recommend.

Kudos to Glenn, our waiter. Apologized for an order which should have come sooner. Received a serving of rolled sushi on the house. Warm sake of the house was much better than expected

It was the worst experience ever my reservation was at 7:30 and we didn’t get seated till 8:45 and mins u it was my wife birthday..
Got seated and ordered all our food immediately as we had a concert to attend after dinner and time had already been cut into due to long wait…. The appetizers came out pretty quick.. but the main meal didn’t come out and we waited till 10pm then I asked for my check cause at this point it seemed ridiculous and I had checked with server a few times and kept getting the “it’s coming out now” response everytime..Asked for a manager and his response was that the kitchen was backed up.. smh he managed to comp the appetizer money I had already spent $160 on drinks as we were Erie king premium liquor but that wasn’t comped of course neither was I looking for it to be.. all I wanted was for my wife to get a decent meal for her birthday before the concert… smh what a way to ruin her birthday.. it’s quite embarrassing

Our meal and entire experience was outstanding. Our server, Glenn went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, drinks (great bartender as well) and atmosphere. Will definitely return and would reccomend Takami Sushi & Robata and our server Glenn to anyone interested in an enjoyable meal and overall experience.

We love this restaurant and eaten here a number of times, the food is fantastic. However we had a terrible service experience this weekend, all due to the 2 girls on the maitre d' table. We arrived 10 minutes earlier than our reservation. They said rudely that there were a number of people before us waiting to be seated (we didn't see many in the lobby). We inquired about terrace seating, they said there was a long wait for those tables, around 1 1/2 hours, so we said we'd take the first available. We decided to order drinks at the bar. The drinks took quite awhile. We were seated about 15 min later, and the bar staff said they would send our drinks to the table. Upon seating, one of the rude girls told us that we had 90 min max for our table. Our waiter was fantastic, and the food was quick. About 1 hour and 5 min in, one of the rude girls came over and told us our time was nearly up and we better finish quickly. We still had 25 min on the clock!! We had a good laugh with the patrons on either side of us who were stunned at how the girl treated us. Sadly we won't be rushing back to one of our fave restaurants given the young immature hosts who treated everyone like they were trash.

The food was excellent especially the Takami roll and the Lemon-Albacore roll. The Baked King Crab roll was fantastic, it was one of the best if not the best and the waffle churro dessert was delicious! Enjoyed the lounge type music the restaurant played while dining. The service was nice and friendly. We will definitely be back and try other rolls and items on the menu.

I love this place , the view, the food, the drinks, what made me upset was I didn’t get a patio booth as I requested on my reservation, when we arrived , I requested again & they said no, we ate, had a few drinks , only 1 booty from the 10 booths available was used , just horrible & disappointing, Host should have a better attitude & customer service

Food was not proper. Lamb chops were decent. Everything else was over cooked, or very lacking in flavor and not fresh. Please improve! Great location and wonderful staff honestly a beautiful beautiful place let’s get that food matching that interior design quality.

We reserved a table for my mom's 91st birthday and Takami did not disappoint. The food was really good as usual and the Arare Calamari was exceptional. But the evening was really special because of our waiter Glen(n?). First of all, he hit it off really well speaking Japanese to my mom and when he found out we were there to celebrate her birthday, he just turned on the charm. We had a real memorable night and one that my mother will remember for awhile. Thank you Takami and Glen(n). We will be coming back really soon.
Best

I would say the view is nice but we could barely see it from where we were sitting. The vibe was off. It wasn’t this exciting, fun place that my coworker had described when he recommended this place. It felt like closing time where there are random tables still lingering at the end of the night. It was also incredibly overpriced since there wasn’t much of a scene or vibe. I kinda felt like we were paying for an experience but it fell flat.

Went here for a special birthday for my sister. I was super excited but this place turned out to be a disappointment. The restrooms were disgusting, I'm not sure if they had been cleaned all evening... service was absolutely terrible. Waited about 45 mins to get our order. Overall, I don't think I'll ever be back.

This was our first time trying this restaurant and we decided to come for date night. We came on a Friday night and had reservations at 6:45. There was only one party ahead of us who needed to check in and soon after parties started to come and line up behind us. When we had checked in at the host stand we were told we’d be seated within the next 5-10 min. We stood away from the host stand waiting patiently to be called. As parties started to check in I began to notice that those parties we’re being sat after we had checked in ahead of time. It didn’t quite bother me till I notice that at least 7 parties being parties of 2 or more were being sat before us and who had long checked in after when we had made reservations. Mind you our reservations were at 6:45 and did not get sat till 7:30. Had we known this was going to be like this we would have gone straight to the bar and sat there. This experience didn’t start well from the beginning and we were ready to leave. However we decided to continue to wait.

Our server was a sweet Filipino lady and was very welcoming and attentive to us. She recommended us dishes to start out with

The worst service ever encountered in a restaurant. Rude, loud, extremely a noxious and no concept or understanding of service in the restaurant industry. Called my wife a liar 🤦‍♂️ you can see my Yelp elite review for the full summary of tragic events that were experienced last night. Glenn should be fired ASAP or that place will keep losing business.
