The food was excellent! Service was great. I recommend this restaurant for a romantic night with beautiful views
City light breathtaking
It was great, amazing view and the service was also good.
Yamashiro has romantic ambiance and great views. The food quality is good. However, the service left much to be desired during our last visit.
Service was very slow. We waiting over 30 min to get our table even though we had a reservation. They mixed our orders up. The waiter came to our table maybe 3 times the entire night. Food was cold. Quality of the food was horrible. Deseret was very saggy. The attitude of everyone was very rude and uptight. Do your self a favor and go anywhere else. This place is garbage
Went for a valentine's dinner. The reservation was at 8. But they kept us waiting for 30 minutes. And the food was not so great. The restaurant was supposed to welcome us with drinks but we are non alcoholics but they didn't give us anything instead. Also the steak was rare and we needed it medium well or well done but they said the can't do it. The menu did not mention anything about that!.. I am disappointed regardless the amount paid which was alot
pricy but definitely worth it! outstanding seevice and best food
i have non fresh clam soup and overcooked waygu steak on valentine dinner. and dirty dessert plate. that dinner was $179/person. Terrible
Amazing Valentine’s Day experience!!! Unbeatable view, great Hollywood location, unique ambiance, beautiful gardens, superb service, and the food of course was just as good as people say it is.
I took my girlfriend to Yamashiro for Valentine's Day and while we were highly impressed with our server, the food was absolutely terrible. There was no effort put into the preparation of the food, and it was bland and uninspired. We left feeling very unsatisfied, and that's coming from two extremely non-picky eaters.
The views are unparalleled, so we would return to enjoy drinks at the bar and enjoy the ambience, but we would likely never dine at Yamashiro again.
The food and the service were absolutely incredible. Our waitress was very informative and attentive. Our bartender, Percy, is an incredible mixologist. An artist of his craft and a master of flavorful concoctions. 10/10 would recommend and will be coming back
Great if you go during good weather. Food is nice but not the main attraction. Service a bit slow if restaurant is full. Beautiful garden. Don't get the giant fortune cookie for dessert; it doesn't even come with a paper fortune inside.
So came here with the Mrs. the day before valentines to miss the rush and chaos. Reservations at 5:30, we were seated immediately and the waitress was amazing. The service and ambiance was very good. Unfortunately the food was not. And at the end of the day it’s a restaurant, where people eat. So that should be the biggest draw to this place. I ordered the Filet mignon and the wife had salmon. My steak was dry , and super small. It said 8oz on the menu but this looked like 4oz medallion. Besides the small size it didn’t taste well and the twice baked potato wasn’t ver good either. The wife said her salmon was ok but I feel like she just didn’t want me to be anymore disappointed. Total bill was $150 including a $30 tip. It wasn’t the waitresses fault. She was great. After paying for valet I spent $165 there and just didn’t feel like I got my money’s worth. Maybe it’s because it was raining and the view was tarnished by the bad weather. But I had high hopes and would recommend Yamashiro’s to others previously. But I will not being doing that anymore because I cannot trust the food will live up to expectations.
They were make us wait for 30 min even we had reservation
Everything was fantastic and Micah was excellent
Average shrimp tempura, cold crispy spicy tuna with rice, soggy edemame, but a pretty good steak. Overall, pretty disapointing considering the amount of other places in the area to get a good meal.
Amazing night celebrating my wife’s birthday with a surprise visit from her
We had brunch reservations at 11:00 for Sunday. It was raining on and off throughout the day. We arrived at 10:40 and were not aware we could not wait inside the restaurant. So we ended up waiting in our car since the doors did not open until exactly 11:00 am. Not a good start, but the quality of the food and service made up for it.
Well the evening started off good. We went for my birthday.
Sit down and it takes a bit to get situated. Order drinks and appetizers.
One of them never showed.
The waiter also didn’t come around enough. I had two drinks. Usually I try to have 3.
Finally, they knew it was my birthday on the reservation and just didn’t bother acknowledging it.
The menu has changed a little bit since the last time I was there. The portions were also way bigger. So it was very much worth it.
They simplified their liquor menu - which sucked because I liked the Japanese whiskey selection. However, their specialty cocktails made up for that. They were all good and fair priced.
Overall it was an okay experience this time. I’ll go back for sure. Just hope the next waiter is a little more tentative.
The duck nabe was overcooked duck breast..inedible. Curious why the restaurant bar does not carry Merlot wines. Our waiter was fantastic but the food did not meet our expectations. Didn't realize it was a tourist trap.
The location was top notch , the food was excellent. The service was ok , my waitress spilled a beer on me and my date , and the valet gentleman was unprofessional.
loved it NO complaints for my first time visiting loved it ❤️❤️❤️✌🏽
I was referred to Yamashiro from a friend. I was celebrating an early Valentines Day. I clearly asked for a window seat and made reservations at a time to watch the sunset ahead of time, which I also said I wanted to see. Instead I was sat in a middle section with a clear view of the trailer park (not very romantic). My cocktail tasted like straight grapefruit and lemon juice. We sat by a table that was very loud. My food was over-salted but looked very pretty. Driving home I had a really bad stomach ache that lasted 2 days. I was hoping for a better experience
Food and ambiance was great. Our server was helpful and very sweet. It was an enjoyable experience!
The view is amazing!!! The restaurant it’s self is stunning but the food was just okay. It wasn’t good or bad. They are extremely busy, it is pretty loud and the service was just okay. Not memorable or bad.
My Wife and had our anniversary dinner at Yamashiro. The staff was very amiable and helpful. The meal was very delicious. We were very happy with everything and will be going back.
Poor service. Food quality wasn’t as expected. Manager was able to help us but by then we had already waited for basic services, like the server introducing themselves or ordering appetizers.
We mentioned during our reservation that this would be our anniversary. The host and the server didn’t mention anything. Disappointed.
Kiki was awesome! We celebrated our friends birthday and could not have asked for a better evening. Highly recommend the food as we tried 9 items!
It was great!!! I can’t wait to come back! The service was amazing from our waitress and the Manager on staff that night! We had a wonderful time
The service and food were excellent, no complaints at all. We dined near the windows were so we had a view while we dined. Would definitely come back again.
The food at Yamashiro was fine, it was kinda mediocre but it was OK. We ordered a sushi boat. But the ambiance is really spectacular. I wouldnt take a super foodie there, but for an out of town guest who wants to see a really special LA place Yamashiro is fine. Excellent bar as well.
Went there last weekend with a big group for my birthday. They treated us well, food was fantastic and drinks were on point. Can’t beat this place!
The View is amazing and great customer service. I will go back in another special occasion.
Fabulous all round service although at the end we had a discrepancy regarding a discount we had received.
They promptly looked into it and although there was a mix up, the people at Yamashiro honored our discount. This is what garners loyalty to an establishment!
Perfect night! And our server was above and beyond!!
The view is definitely worth the drive, however for the price I would expect better sevice. Our waiter was not attentive, no water refill and empty plates on the table were not collected in time. The food was ok, I read the reviews before I went so I know what to expect.
The Sunday brunch was even better than I expected. Quality of food & service was off the charts. Loved it!!
We were quick to be seated, but the chairs were kind of funky for a restaurant. We were sat next to a large party and the overall noise level of the restaurant was extremely high whereas we were yelling across the table at each other. We ordered appetizers and while one showed up prior to dinner the other one showed up halfway through dinner even after we had told the waitress that it was too late and we cancelled it. Lastly our order was wrong and we were still charged even though not eaten..
It felt much more commercialized with a hipster vibe then I remembered (its been a little while). Customers were dressed in everything from leggings/ripped jeans to t-shirts and leather motorcycle jackets. While its probably good for a dinner/drinks before hitting the club, its a bit much for a elegant or romantic dinner.
Quite the temple of doom. A pagoda of sadness. Nagasaki with nigiri. In spite of gorgeous decor and expectations of great eats, this place was bombing all night.
We had a reservation for 8pm for our anniversary dinner, and it took the staff 38 minutes to seat us. Tables were free, we were essentially just forgotten. The food? Perhaps a solid 2. Maybe the view is supposed to make you forget subpar service and mediocre food, but our night was ruined.
Wait staff took forever but when the food came out....amazing
