We made this our Friday night destination prior to going across the hall for Elevate Lounge. We were able to walk right in at 10 p.m. for dinner despite the place being quite crowded. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that valet parking in this DTLA locale was only $7! Delicious sushi, just be prepared to shell out some... More

Great view, outdoor but covered balcony, excellent food and watermelon mojitos. They had creative rolls and interesting entrees. The garlic edamame were also very good. Clearly a trendy local hotspot by the looks of the clientele.

Pretty good sushi and average service. It is rather on the expensive side, but you pay for the location, which is downtown LA with a really stunning open air view (the restaurant is located on the 21st floor). I had a business dinner here and although the views were worth the trip, the fact, that the place is quite noisy,... More

We were recommended by the Ritz Carlton and are thankful for that. The food and service were well executed even with children at our table. The chefs were honest when I inquired about the integrity of the Uni, which I am a huge fan. It was fresh and clean, so I ended up ordering 3 orders. I know, I'm a... More

bland food and terrible service. Takes forever to get anything you can waiyt an hour for your dish to come out after everyone else finished. Its a big fight to get your food. This restaurant is a real zero

The Toro was out of this world! The Kanpachi was fantastic and everyone MUST try the 21st roll. There are so many good things on their menu it is worth going back several times to experience new cuisine. The Saki menu is one of the largest I have seen and we also had a great experience with the Saki selection.... More

We decided to head over to the restaurant for after-work drinks and a bite. We went on a Monday night and to our surprise the patio/outside area was packed (thankfully we made reservations). Valet parking is available for $7 dollars. The restaurant is located on the 17th floor which is the perfect view for downtown LA. We ordered some rolls... More

We rarely go downtown in Los Angeles for dinner, nor, that I can remember, ever in a high rise office building here so it was with some anticipation that we visited Takami Sushi and Robata last night. On the plus side, service, apart from the rather off-hand hostesses, was fine with our waiter being really excellent. He was enthusiastic, informative,... More

This was the second time I visited Takami in the last few months. This time just for happy hour. Happy hour hear is a terrific deal The small plates are only $4 each, and there is a small, but decent drink list for $5. The sushi trio was fantastic, the pepper tuna melted in the mouth. The albacore was fresh... More

Rooftop restaurant and bar in downtown LA. Good place to stop for a drink after 4 pm during their happy hour. We went back again the next night for dinner with friends. Excellent food and active vibe. Fun place.
