Beautiful view of LA. Great food and service. My two children said it was the best burger they have ever had! Wagyu wins. Sushi was lovely. A real treat for our family and just up the hill from our hotel. A wonderful night.
Ladies toilet was out of order which wasn’t ideal as had to queue for disabled next to diners.

It had been over 50 years since I was there as a single gal. They said"Welcome Back....so cute. We celebrated 3 male birthdays, and everyone had so much fun. We were there for the brunch. Awesome ambience.

I can't say enough of our experience at Yamashiro. They gave us the most romantic table, as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and our server was amazing. Alex treated us so good, we appreciated his attention to us and for the quality of service. The food was spectacular, the drinks, devine. They know what they're doing there, all at the highest level and highly recommend everyone to go. Thank you Yamashiro, from Mr. & Mrs. Guzman. 👍🙌😋

Incredibly disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. Was a treat for a family birthday and it was the worst birthday dinner we can remember. Very sad, because we so looking forward to this and it was not cheap. :*(

While the food, drinks, and view are fantastic, I was disappointed overall. My family and I have dined here on multiple occasions in the past and the service has always been impeccable. This time I was shocked at how slow the service was, especially considering the cost of dining here. Those in the group who only ordered water only had one refill during an entire 3 hour dinner and that refill was in the first hour! Our party often had to wait upwards of 15 minutes when simply trying to get our waiter's attention. It took us nearly 2 hours to get dessert and the check sorted. The noise level was also very high. The people in my party could only hear the person next to them. To speak to the person across from you required shouting. Considering this was a big celebration dinner for my husband's birthday, I was disappointed with the overall experience. I would reconsider dining here with a group any larger than 2-4.

Food was excellent, vastly improved from when I previously went years ago. Prices are very high. Staff is friendly but extremely busy so service was fair.

Amazing food and ambiance. 10/10 recommend making a sunset reservation and arriving 30 minutes early for a drink at their outside terrace bar.

A must for special occasions, but also a good place just to go and enjoy a great meal in a beautiful setting with fabulous views all around. We went for a group Birthday and received the Birthday Special which had a bottle of champagne and a giant fortune cookie with fruit and a sparkler included. Everything here is delicious and high-quality.

We loved every creative and expertly prepared and served dish, from the starters to the sushi, sides, and desserts. The spectacular views, gardens, and decor, as well as the winding drive to get there made this a very memorable meal.

It’s such a shame that this location isn’t put to better use. The best thing about this restaurant is the location and architecture. It has the potential to be something really special but it’s currently an expensive tourist trap. The food is not horrible but but painfully mediocre. The music was confusing and too loud and we never really knew who our server was. The location is tempting but please be strong and avoid. There are sooo many amazing restaurants in LA so don’t waste your time on this one.

Crazy bad experience at Yamashiro. They sat us in the courtyard with 2 other couples...no view, loud Motown music playing, average service at best, and food that had very little relation to the Japanese name & surroundings. If you want the view, have a drink in their bar, and then go somewhere else for a nice dinner.
