This restaurant had a gorgeous view of downtown LA. Unfortunately the food was hit or miss. While the robata was excellent (fish, steak, and chicken), the tuna with jalapeño was awful. A manager came out after we returned it and informed us we would not be charged for it. While he made a great point to share that, I found... More

First, the view is beautiful, and I loved the decor and atmosphere. We came with a party of 12 (pre-reserved) on a Friday night but the service was still phenomenal. Unfortunately I have some serious food allergies so had to stick to some plainer dishes but they were not plain at Takami. I had skewered mushrooms and zucchini, edamame, a... More

This is a must in the city. The food, location, service and atmosphere is absolutely top notch. The restaurant was full of families, couples, friends, it is open to all. It was a great experience.

I've been to Takami several times, not only for the ambience and amazing views, but also for the tasty drinks and food! I usually order sushi there, but everything I've tried has been delicious. Two visits ago, the service was not as good as I was accustomed to at Takami, and I left a review saying that I was a... More

Sit on the outer side away from the bar inside and you will get an amazing view of LA and you won't be caught up in the scene. Everything we ordered was great from fries to sushi to chicken wings. Loved the lychee martini.

Even if the reviews were very average for this place, the fact that it is located next to our hotel was practical and the fact that my wife loves Asian food were the necessary requirements to book a table. Upon our arrival, we were confronted with a lounge that had more to do with a meat market that your typical... More

Over rated restaurant. Ordinary sushi.... Greasy table, I've had much better sushi. Very expensive for what it is. Once is enough!

I had dinner with four Japanese friends at terrace (veranda) area. The decor of the restaurant was sophisticated but the view from this restaurant on about 20th floor was not nice. Also, since our table was at the end of the veranda, the server came to our table less frequently and this made us a bit frustrated. The Tempura, Yakitori... More

Unless you are only interested in a view, or a raucous Happy Hour group pounding discounted drinks, this is not for you. I've been coming here for many years, and I brought an important client from out of town. It was more than embarrassing from start to finish. Without giving you a blow by blow, the food was really subpar...... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
