We went for the views, and we got them. The food was good. We chose to go at golden hour (just before sunset) for the best possible views, and we weren't disappointed.

My girlfriend and I came here for Valentine's Day dinner and loved it so much, we decided to come back with my folks. We didn't realize they didn't serve any of their normal menu and instead had a brunch only menu. This was quite disappointing as we came up from Newport Beach and Long Beach specifically for the regular menu. Not only that, but if it was to be brunch only, some actual Asian breakfast options would have been appreciated as most of us are part Asian (Korean and Japanese). As a brunch it was OK, but I wouldn't come back for it. The service was fantastic though, and as always the ambiance is top notch.

The experience my girlfriend and I had here was great and welcoming. I decided to bring my girlfriend to dinner here as a surprise and the service was amazing. Everyone at the restaurant, from the hostess to the waiter did a phenomenal job with their service. Nothing but 5 stars for this restaurant. And a special shoutout to Narde for the awesome customer service! Will definitely be coming back for more special occasions!!

Loved this restaurant. Server was very nice and helpful, food was some of the best Japanese/sushi that I’ve had, and the ambiance/decor was amazing. We sat in the garden and I loved how it was set up. Lighting gave it the perfect glow. Views from the mountaintop were hard to beat too.

Its sad to see this once iconic restaurant fall into the average category. The restaurant was closed for renovations but they did not improve upon any of the outdated items that were there before. Rather, they removed the carpet and replaced it with cheap fake hard wood that makes it super loud and has no personality at all. the place looks plain. The pavement is in disrepair by the stairs and the whole place just feels like it has seen better days. To bad this could be such a gem

Its a fun place, expect to throw down some serious money for dinner though. Even on Sunday they want a credit card to hold my reservation, since it is a weekend. I received a text, responded and still go numerous calls to get my credit card for a weekend reservation. Figure on spending about $100/person for dinner. Everything was fresh, view was great, funny thing that even though I spent close to $500 for dinner, tip and parking they cannot give me 100 points for openable.

We had five adults cramped into a table designed for four seats. My chair was between two uneven tables pushed together. I had booked the reservation five weeks in advance, but was still pushed in the back room. I asked twice for a refill on my drink before going to the bar myself for a refill. When the food came out, there was no room on the table for everything (five adults at a table fit for four). I had been here before and was really hoping to share a positive experience at this amazing place. A big disappointment.

Had a wonderful experience about a month ago and so decided to come back. Even ordered the same thing since it was so tasty. Sadly I guess we didn’t get the same chef. The top fish dish on the menu time was way over cooked and the overall experience disappointing in comparison. Big Bummer!

Been a patron for over 40 years and decided to try it out with the new ownership. The evening started out with a crummy, tiny corner table by the wait station which was insulting since I made it clear when I made my reservations three weeks earlier that it was for my daughter’s birthday. We wanted a view that didn’t entail a view of the parking lot. Ordering took forever and we had just taken one bite of our appetizers (very average ) when our entrees arrived simultaneously and we had them sent back so we could eat what was in front of us. These are very small tables so there is NO room for more than two plates and a drink at any given time. The glaze on my short ribs was almost all vinegar and I sent it back. The manager came over and proceeded to tell me they ran out of the wine they use and had to grab some random bottle from the bar which was in actuality not the problem. A separate issue was the women’s bathroom. Two stalls had no toilet paper and the counter top was sop and wet. Overall the evening was a real let down with lousy entrees and erratic service being the real problem. It is still the best view in Los Angeles but just go for drinks and skip the meal.
