Overall the experience was just OK. Let me start by saying we made a reservation on a Sunday night, that was clearly not busy. That being said I hoped that making a reservation would be taken with seriousness. However, it was not. Making a reservation at a place on a not so busy night for a special occasion you hope to get a desirable spot, but here that was not what happened. We made a reservation for 7 on Sunday at 6 and we’re seated inside away from the outside, where people obviously come to sit being that it is the main attraction for this place. I would have understood if it was busy but there was not many people and the rest were walkups. This spot is obviously special for the locale and being seated where we were was just a disappointment.

After that being said, the service was lackadaisical and totally slow. We had to wait long amounts of time in between appetizers ordered at the same time. For how much money we spent this is unacceptable. I would have been treated better at an Olive Garden. If you want a nice view and not a worry about time this is your place.

Very nice Ambiance and nice view of downtown Los Angeles. The food was very good and not too pricey. The drinks were great. The server was very good, but gone for long periods and we had to wait a bit long for a second glass of water... couldn't find her anywhere.

The only negative was the waitress in the bar area. Just because we happen to be black she assume we were with a large group of other black peoples and never approached us for drinks, appetizers or service.

One and done. Food is okay overall however not a great value. Prices have to be higher due to the location. However the quality of the food and service leave much to be desired.
The Manager is engaged and seems eager to please and on top of his game. Our wait staff however was rude and condescending when we expressed dissatisfaction with the quality of the service.

This was not a pleasant experience. We felt like we were forgotten about and our waters remained empty most of the night. We were there for a birthday celebration and it put a damper on the mood.
I don’t go to an expensive restaurant for a celebration to be treated poorly.

The Japanese grill was over cooked and tasteless. The edamame was so over cooked it was soggy. The staff was gracious but based on the appetizers, we chose to pass in the sushi. Beautiful location and very friendly service.

IN the aspect of food, it's okay. More of an Americanized Japanese cuisine, not genuine Japanese cuisine. However, it's rooftop, the ambiance is good, what else can you expect.

Had real hard time trying to get to restaurant due to all the street construction. Been to restaurant several times and know where it is but with all the street closures, one way streets and a Los Angeles Police officer who would not allows us to enter the valet parking area we almost did not make it. The problem happened just 1/2 mile from the restaurant, it took us 15 minutes driving in circles to get there.

I recommend that the restauarnt send a email to the person who makes the reservation and warn them of the closures and give directions how to get there.

I would also give this email to the City telling them of the problems they have greated and making this really good restaurant lose potential business.

Only problem is parking. It’s hard to get to valet because of the construction. They need a better way to get to it. It took me 15 minutes to get around to reach valet. More signs are needed or warning when making a reservation

We were greeted by the hostess and the managers, the food was exceptional the experience was exceptional and the atmosphere was exceptional. It was a great location in downtown LA and a very nice view. It’s overall a good place for dates, birthdays, family hangouts, business meeting, and etc.
