Hey guys. Really terrible service. The food took an hour and fifteen to come. Blamed it on a Groupon. Which we didn’t use. All in all, 7/10 on the overall anniversary.

Good food. Great view and ambiance. I think the service may have been a little understaffed that night so a little slow and resulted in us having to wait 20 minutes after our reservation to be seated, but server was great.

Expensive, but worth it. The fish dishes we had (seared ahi, and a kind of yellowtail sashimi) were made with very high quality and very fresh fish. The various appetizers we had with drinks, shishito peppers, vegetable tempura, were very good, as well. We also shared a wonderful steak. Everything is made and served to be shared, kind of a Japanese take on tapas.

The one complaint - we had to wait in the bar area before we were seated. Not usually a problem, but in this case there was a group of about 6 or 7 in the center of the bar who were literally the loudest and rudest people on earth! They were shouting, and one young woman has the loudest, most piercing laugh possible. I actually didn't know a human could be that loud! I as actually about to complain, either directly to them, or the management, when we were shown to our table, in the outside area. There, it was quiet and peaceful. And, a rarity in Los Angeles, we ended up in a pleasant conversation with the couple at the next table.

The host that showed us our table wasn’t very nice compared to the other couple that he attended to right after us. He asked how we heard about the place and we told him it was my wife’s bday and we also saw a deal at Travelzoo. He showed us our table and left. However, the other couple that he sat next to us was different. He talked about the menu and gave recommendations and very pleasant with them. Why? I don’t know.
Secondly, we ordered 4 different types of sushi rolls and I have to say. It’s poorly executioned. The looks aesthetically, the taste... it’s just a big rice roll with a slither of fish...
I would think for an upscale restaurant it would be a more delightful experience than we had.

Food was just okay for the price. Had better sushi in hole in the wall places. It's the view and the mojito are the reasons for my next visit if ever.

This is the second time my wife and I go there. First time we went for happy hour and the second time for dinner. The place is beautiful in the middle of downtown the outdoor is great you can see the entire high rise building. The Happy hour menu is not too sofiaticated but enough and great for the price. Extremely elegant and delicious cocktail drinks. Dinner was excellent. The Cod Fish to die for. We had also the steak which was good but we preferred the Cod Fish. We also ordered a plate of sashimi wich was very fresh and beautifully presented. In all was an excellent experience. I highly recommend it.

The fish at this restaurant is so fresh, and the halibut and salmon basically melted in my mouth! Definitely recommend as a "splurge" type of dinner.

Fantastic food, we had the special wagu beef-it was divine. We also had the peppered ahi tuna --it was a perfect bite. We also had the King crab, shrimp and sea bass Robata, it was absolutely fabulous. The crunchy shrimp role was sooo good. We had so much food, and it was all delicious.The drinks were very good and the service was exceptional. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Our 4 robatas were good, but not exceptional. Also, perhaps a bit small. We ordered an additional plate of Sushi to fill us up. The California Rolls we got were nothing out of the ordinary - tasted the same as in most sushi places
Strange decor in that that much advertised rooftop location, which I read as view, was covered halfway up the windows by opaque glass panes. The view over LA was partially hidden unless one stood up to look over the panes.

Service was very good. We loved the location and ambiance. Also, great to get a glass of wine under $15, at the bar during happy hour.

It took a while before the server came to our table we had to get the manager to come over. Once we actually got the server to come to our table everything went very well. The food was amazing the on Beyonce great as always. The manager made up for the server and gave us an amazing desert at the end.

The food was spectacular. We arrived earlier than the rest of our party and they said they were unable to seat us until everyone was there. We sat at the bar and ordered some drinks and the lovely bartender, RC, gave us complimentary appetizers while we waited. He was chatty and pleasant and wonderful. We were seated in the more outside area and it was beautiful and scenic. The reason I gave it fewer stars was the service was choppy and painfully slow at times. Drinks, such as glasses of wine and beer, would take almost half an hour to get to us. Not exaggerating. Cocktails were an additional fifteen minutes. It was a busy Saturday so we'll give some slack but still unacceptable.

I want to have and raise my children in this restaurant- THAT is how good it is. Service is minimal and you have to wait a little here and there, but after a heavy makeout session with scallops, salmon, crab and a Sapporo LIGHT (I’m on a diet), it was all worth it. I would star on TLC’s “My 600 pound life” GLADLY and eat 400 pounds of food here every day. I love you Takami.

Been meaning to try this place and saw an awesome Groupon deal. While the Groupon said 15% service fee, they charged us for 25% which I didn’t agree with. All in all, our server was pretty good. Sushi was great but the Filet &Foie Gras was disappointing. The skyline view is another highlight of the restaurant.

The server was excellent. The Takami edamame, creamy rock shrimp tempura and Chilean sea bass were excellent too. However, the portion size for the halibut is too small for the price and I was unpleasantly surprised that it was served cold. Finally, the view was excellent!
