If you go there at night, you might have one of the best LA views. Ask for a table on the deck. The sashimi with truffle olive oil was perfect.
I find the food average and overpriced. But the view and walking the grounds are well worth the visit. I like to take dates there for drinks and appetizers. Or maybe for an after dinner drink. Dinner we had elsewhere.
I dined here with my son on a recent visit to Hollywood. Yamashiro is literally 20 steps uphill from my room at the Hollywood Hills Hotel. Very tasty menu of West Coast interpretations of Asian cuisine.
I love this restaurant makes me feel like I have left the US and landed right in the middle of Japan. The building and grounds are beautiful and engaging. Staff is always attentive and friendly. Food is perfectly prepared and always has the freshest ingredient's and tastes. The smell of the foods and greenery make a treat for the scent-is.... More
Lovely location, brilliant food, would go back! This restaurant was recommended by our travel agent as we were staying nearby. Big mistake to try to walk up the hill, though it helped to give us a good appetite. Great for a special occasion or if you just feel like spoiling yourself.
I attended a wedding at Yamashiro and it was an amazing place to have it. It is a old pagoda style building on top of a hill in Hollywood and the view inside and out is unforgettable. The food, service and décor fantastic. It really feels like and old world authentic experience. I will definitely go again.

We greatly enjoyed visiting this historic building and its immediate surroundings and the view over Hollywood Blvd and LA at night was spectacular. The meal was good...Not outstanding...But satisfying, nonetheless. The 'regular' coffee however was disappointing...Tepid and with no real... More

Yamashiro is a very unique Japanese restaurant. It is surrounded by Japanese gardens and the building itself has a Japanese look to it. The fish is absolutely delicious.
Hello, Thank you for the positive review. It sounds as though you were enamored by the ambiance and architecture. I would like to clarify that while the architecture and name of Yamashiro is Japanese-inspired, that the cuisine is Asian-inspired Californian. Hope to see you soon! More
I went to a business dinner at Yamashiro on October 20. The location is spectacular, up on a hill in Hollywood. The building looks like it was moved in one piece from Japan. The agrden is peaceful and relaxing. We had a pre-set menu, so I was not able to select my dinner. The food was very high quality, and... More
