Great place to try good portions of meat... my son loves the wagyu.. kind of on the expensive side but hey, it’s in Beverly Hills... our server Jonathan was very nice and has a good sense of humor.

Yazawa is a unique dining experience, an omekase that involves not sushi but incredible cuts of Wagyu beef. The service is exquisite and knowledgeable. Well worth the price!

Excellent quality of the food (wagyu menue) and good service. For Europeans a bit more cozy atmosphere is missing. If you would like to get a typical wagyu beef experience, this is the place!

An amazing food experience! Our cook/waiter was so great and grilled the meat the way we liked it - the meat was sooooooo tasty! He also told us lots of stories about what we were eating so this is the nicest food experience we’ve ever had in our lives! It is pricey, but totally worth it!

I get the omakase each time, and the meat is exceptional! When you order sake, they make you choose your own sake cup from a tray. The service each time is amazing! The server gave recommendations on how best to cook and eat the meat. Yazawa is definitely one of my favorite restaurants, and it’s worth the price!

Location is busy; decor is dark and somewhat heavy and the food doesn’t distinguish itself sufficiently from the myriad other similar restaurants unfortunately. That being said, we got excellent service and did have a good time

If being treated like you’re nothing more that a dollar bill this is the restaurant for you.

We booked for 4 at 7 on a Saturday. They called to confirm.
3 of us got there at 7 last one arrived at 7:10.
We ordered drinks and talked for a little bit.
The waiter then informed us we should place our order as we only had the rable for another hour and 37 minutes!
One of us ordered the 5 course dinner for $160, the rest of us were ordering a la carte. Dan, who was ordering the large dinner said to my wife he won’t be able to eat it all and she could have some. The waiter informed us that’s not allowed. I thought he was joking; no, there’s no sharing allowed.
Waiter came back and informed us the chef was not allowing Dan to order the large meal and he had to order a la carte.
The waiter then informed us he’d rather be producing films than working there.
They then asked for our email addresses to keep us up to date as they’re closing and remodeling and changing the concept.
We declined.
I suggest they look at not running it like a Japanese prison camp.

A+ amazing! I didn’t know what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised. I went with friends and everyone loved BBQing our meats on the grill that was built into the middle of the table. A unique and great experience! Delicious meats!

This restaurant really brought that ambiance from when I first tried this type of meat when I was in Japan. The quality is definitely up there, and while the price will scare some people off, however, the taste is unlike anything you have had before.

If you like Kobe wagyu and have means to afford it, Yazawa is the place to enjoy such a delicacy.
I have been 4times in Singapore and once in LA, as always excellent.
Bring your red wine with you , it will be served with a charge but like this it feels cheaper to order the good stuff from Japon

We had an amazing experience. It was a perfect place to enjoy nothing but delicious red meat. My husband is a steak fan and he said it is by far the best so far! I definitely will recommend this place. Our server was very knowledgeable and made us feel very comfortable.

Last, I can’t forget the heated toilet seats! Just had to add that. 🙌🏼

I was shocked that glass of house cabernet (jordan) cost $35 which is almost wholesale for 1 bottle. Pretty outrageous. Recommend bringing ur own wine at $35/ corkage to complement the good meat

We have dined here twice and both experiences have been great. Meats are pricey, but every bite and the experience is worth it. Yazawa uses real wagyu and not "wagyu-style." Meat is marbled beautifully and cooked with precision by your server.

Delicious and pricey. Amazing beef. What they don't tell you is that if you haven't been before, you really need to do the omakase menu -- it starts at $100 and doesn't include any vegetables or other dishes-- those have to be ordered a la carte. Other than that, and the confirmation call telling us that we had to release the table in 2 hours (a bit off-putting), the food was really outstanding and the service was good as well. You better like meat, though!
