I enjoyed some excellent sushi here. What ruined the experience was that they cannot seem to decide if they want to be a restaurant or a discotheque. The excessively LOUD, bad music really takes away from the pleasure of their quite good food. I think more people go there for the view, but it's just the boring LA skyline you're... More

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Takami on the 21st floor of 811 Wilshire in the heart of downtown LA. The decor is very cool and modern with a hint of Shag-style. The main dining room is partitioned with a glass wall because the exterior windows on the 21st floor and only half panels with the top half open... More

There is a sign out front that boasts happy hour prices. In the restaurant, I am told that the happy hour prices are only available at the bar and lounge area. This does not make that much sense to me. Then, I noticed the prices of the entrees and realize this is a bad policy. The sushi dinner is $34... More

Celebrated a friends birthday here. Every course was delicious. Service was very attentive and friendly. Also, the views of the city lights was beautiful. I highly recommend!

The title says it all. This is one of our all time favorite Japanese restaurants in Los Angeles. We really need to go back cause it's been awhile. But every time we've gone the staff has been super nice and efficient, the food is fresh and prepared wonderfully and the views you cannot beat. You have to try the Spicy... More

Takami is an elegant space in a downtown high-rise. The service is attentive and the menu is appealing. However, on my last few visits, the food just hasn't been as good as it had been in the past. The appetizers, particularly the spicy tuna on crispy rice and the sushito peppers are still quite good. However, the rolls seems to... More

My husband and I had an amazing experience at Takami. Their food is incredible - try the 21st roll...the crab will melt in your mouth, you will never eat imitation crab again! The best part of the night (if it can get better than the food) was the warm, friendly and energetic bartender we met, named RC. We were waiting... More

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
