Wonderful Food

My husband and I had the tasting menu. This is the best way to try all of the favorite items on the menu. The sushi, the grilled meats, and the desserts were excellent. Everything tastes fresh. The ambience was ok, nothing special. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try Japanese food and sushi.

We came here with our friends whilst we were visiting LA. It was amazing, we spent a fortune but we couldn't resist. The waitresses were great, friendly and very accommodating. We sat outside which was just perfect. I am a vegetarian and I still found plenty of choices for me to eat on the menu and I was stuffed!

We ate here last night and it was absolutely delicious!! Elizabeth our waitress was very attentive and explained the different kitchens. Cocktails were just as good as the food. Highly recommend the surf and turf and the blackened cod. Sitting at the sushi bar was great entertainment.

Been here a few times over the years and it's one of my favourite places to eat in LA. Sit on outside on the patio if you can, enjoy the food and take in the vibe. Gets very busy at weekends, so need to book if you want a patio table.

Staff is great! They were so busy but our waitress was attentive and helpful. Food was great! Appetizers filled me up so by the time I received my miso cod, I was full. But I ate as much as I could with a full stomach. No room for dessert, but very satisfied! Love this restaurant!

What a cool restaurant- very funky decor and attentive wait staff. Our server for the evening was on his 2nd night working in the restaurant, but you would never have guessed! His recommendations were perfect and food great! We will definitely return on our next visit to CA!

The food was the saltiest food I have ever had. I had the lobster on a stick and the beef tenderloin on a stick. I ate both, but neither were impressive for the price spent. Dined outside on the deck which was nice. Was advised not to go by the hotel staff in hollywood, but decided to anyway....should have listened... More

Wow what a disappointment. This is pretty highly rated and we were totally disappointed. The customer service and attitude were terrible and the food was average and over priced. Save your time and money go somewhere else
