    My fiancé and I come here quite often so this is not our first time here. We came and celebrated our 6 year anniversary and we couldn’t have loved it more spending it here and at Takami! Food was outstanding as well as the service and much more. Will gladly come back here again in the future. :)

    I did not enjoy my experience. Hostess sat us at a large table meant for 6 even though there were multiple tables for 2 available all night. Price is pretty standard for a sushi restaurant. The sushi was all very bland despite how busy the rolls were. The waiter was friendly but the hostess wasn’t—she wasn’t overly rude but made it seem like you were bothering her to be checking in. The view is good except they cover the vast majority of the window so you can only see outside through a narrow opening. Doesn’t feel like a rooftop. There are lots of good rooftops in DTLA. Between the lack of a view, bland food, and bad hostess, I would go elsewhere.

    Overall it was a great experience. The food was excellent except for one of the items we ordered. Had a sashimi plate, the tuna wasn’t as fresh as we had hope for. It had a bad taste. The other items were good.

    Looking for a cool hip DTLA nice spot for fun, drinks & good food? Perched on the top of an otherwise indiscreet building on the 21st floor this mid century post modern hip restaurant turned out to be a great find. High quality specialty drinks & beer followed by Toro sashimi and salmon sushi! The steak Robata was equally delicious. The Vegetable tempora was the night’s extra special treat! The easy groove atmosphere was both engaging and relaxing. Our server was pleasant and eager to help us have a great moment. A great organic find off Yelp when planning a staycation in DTLA.

    Only 1 unisex restroom available (probably construction). The restroom smelled horrible, no soap, no paper towels. Appetizers were ok. Sushi was good. Lamb chop amazing. The view wasn’t what I was expecting. Don’t come here to expect a nice view with pretty pictures.

    With the exception of our server the food choices and savory experience of unique it’s of sashimi and sushi creations were excellent. The waiter we had kept trying to validate his lack of attention for our table, however what recognize busy verses lackadaisical. Unfortunately when you forget 3 items and have to mention a couple of them more than once while others in your party wait for their entrees, we as the hosts, bear the burden of embarrassment that no one wants to start their meal til all of us have our entrees, to naturally dine together 🫤 For that alone, I’m not sure I’ll return but the food was great. Bummer but quality experience and service are KEYS to success. I’m sure the intention is there by the overall mgmt but It’ll be awhile before we return

    Time to take first order was extremely long. Had to flag down someone to take our drink order and initial food selections. Once we got past that first hurdle things moved more smoothly, especially when Jackie took over. Otherwise, food was fine and the ambience was perfect. Thank you.

    We sat down for 10 minutes, wait staff was walking up and down the aisle passed us and and nobody came by or paid any attention. I had to waved somebody down, in order for the server to come - doesn't seem like anybody cared. Food was ok, soft crab was way too salty that i couldn't' even eat it. Seaweed salad was probably the most dry, unflavored i've ever had. The best thing on the menu was sea bass skewers, buttery and yet not overwhelming. If you never been here before and want to experience the dtla view, it's worth a first time. other than that i wont' be coming back for food or service.

    Alex helped us last night to celebrate my daughters grades in school - she’s only 7 years old but doesn’t eat meat. Only raw fish. So we decided to take her to takami for a fancy dinner and she was taken aback. The food was great and Alex made her feel extra special with a beautifully crafted juice that had fresh strawberries and a flower garnish. It was a great night and we’ll be back soon! Thanks Alex!
