Omakase with Yojisan, it should be Yojisama, is extraordinary. the dishes are beautiful; the flavors and textures mesh but do not collide. My son and I are long time fans - long live Yoji sama

Didn't like the grey decor. The guy at the front desk was very sour and unwelcoming. Service was ok, food was ok....nothing really remarkable about the place at all

We live in Hawaii and know sushi - as it is our favorite food. When we return to Los Angeles/Beverly
Hills - which we do regularly, Yogisan is always one of our first restaurant picks. The food is always
delicious, fresh and creative....however, on this experience, Yogi wasn't behind the sushi bar (our
favorite way to eat sushi - with the chef)...and the chef who was behind the bar said one word to us:
Hello. That's it. Our order was taken by the restaurant's excellent staff - helpful and efficient. But,
for us - dining with a chef that can make recommendations and conversation - is what sushi dining
is all about. This was a BIG disappointment to us. It took the fun out of dining there. This spot is never
really very busy - as we experienced in the past - but, this night the place was empty which we find odd
and awkward at the same time. Wish the chef was more fun/talkative and perhaps the next time we will
call first to ensure Yogi is working. With this said, Yogisan is in a great location and we have always enjoyed in the past. Aloha

Great food and good service although they left us hanging on paying the bill. I thought restaurants had stopped that!
Real criticism is that the tables are small and there is no room between the bench and the table, made the whole thing uncomfortable.

Pleasant evening at Yojisan with excellent and prompt service - fantastic food. Unique dishes you don't typically see at other Japanese restaurants! Would definitely recommend and come back. Loved the salmon skin salad.

The fish is consistently good. This time we also ordered vegetable tempura. I did not like the inclusion of an onion (a half an onion, which was too big to bite easily), and would have preferred sweet potato. They included broccoli too, which was also too big a piece. The fruit afterwards was tasty and I miss the days when you would routinely be served fruit after sushi.

We told the waiter we were only there for a few pieces, but felt like he was trying to get us to order more than we wanted.

Location was great, in the center of town just off Rodeo Drive. Food was generally good - I would strongly recommend the sushi and sashimi - the Toro sushi platter was excellent, and so was the yellowtail sashimi, all of which were very fresh. The fusion dishes were OK, but for Japanese food lovers, I'd stay with the traditional sushi, sashimi and rolls. Wait staff were friendly, and venue was nice. Overall a very nice dining experience, albeit a little pricey.

While we frequent other restaurants from the same group, we haven't been to Yojisan in a two years or so. For the price, location and name, the food was disappointing. The rolls used fake crab, the salmon was fishy and not fresh and had to be sent back, the snapper sashimi was tasty but hastily presented.. They seriously need to get it together.

A terrible shame... a complete disappointment. The food was not edible. The rice was cold and the raw fish was warm. The presentation left a lot to be desired. I love your other restaurant SHU. I was hoping Yojisan would have been even half as good as SHU. It was not unfortunately. Please make it better 🙏🏼

There is not much by way of decor, but then this is a modestly priced restaurant in a very expensive area.
