Bad Service. Waiter and hostess were rude. Manager, promised tickets for the club next door (Elevate Lounge) never came back to our table. Had to go deal with the rude hostess in the front, who told us that we didn’t need tickets to get in, wrong info btw. After sitting and spending $50 on drinks at elevate lounge , security came around and started to kick people out. Telling a group about 30 people that had dinner at Takami, that we had to get out and get our hand stamped in the lobby. Oh, it was ok for us to sit there for an hour and spend money on drinks, but as soon as 10 pm rolls around you need to go and make room for people paying a cover charge. Why let people in and get drinks before 10 pm…bunch of BS, never going back to either place.
The most Perfect Los Angeles dining. Simply one of the top 5 sushi restaurants in LA. Love the ambiance and the setting. Well done!!
Try at Least Once.
My girlfriend took me out to Takami for a nice occasion for a dinner. It is a very nice place with a very cool ambience. If you sit by the window you can oversee alittle bit of LA, but mostly the financial district buildings of downtown. So if you come there with a date, I would def recommend sitting on the outside patio by the window, very cool vibe. Nice decor, some music playing in the background, very hip place.
As far as food, a few dishes we tried were delicious. Spicy Tuna on crisply rice is a great appetizer, very tasty. Also we got, penthouse roll - very good, and I got Grilled Salmon in teriyaki sauce - it was melting in my mouth, great dish. And miso soup and edamame, same as everywhere. Some people were saying their portions are small, but I would have to disagree. Their sushi rolls are about 8 pieces, and appetizer and entree very good sized portions. I had Takami 10 coctails, very tasty and on the strong side.
Price was not bad either, its pricey but not on the very expensive side. Our bill for the above order came out to 80 bucks before tip, which is not bad at all, and we were full. So if you come here to enjoy a nice light (meaning not stuffing yourself out) dinner, it will not cost you an arm and a leg.
Service was very good as well, waitress was fast and very attentive. Elevate lounge next door is nothing special, just your basic hollywood type lounge, with dj spinning top 40 (which I dont care for too much). Hostess at Takami was kinda bitchy as far as getting us to the Elevate, she kept saying shes waiting for a club manager to come out and give us tickets, which never happened, i think she was just bs'ing. But my GF worked her around that by asking a security guy at the club while i was in the restroom. Very good maneuvre by her. So anyways, I would def recommend Takami Sushi, for nice dinner and to enjoy the vibe and atmosphere. Worth the visit at least once
You MUST go and see for yourself!.
Lunch or dinner Takami is the place to be if you’re downtown Los Angeles. With multiple kitchens providing traditional Japanese dishes to Sushi to the Robata Bar there is something for everyone in your party. Do you have someone at your table that just can’t get the idea of raw fish past their nose? Try the Robata Bar! The baby lamb chops are out of this world. A skewer of Chilean Sea Bass is cooked to buttery perfection.
Sushi lover? In addition to tradition sushi rolls Takami has some of the best signature rolls in town! The Takami Roll is probably my favorite with Spicy Tuna, Snow Crab, Asparagus and Albacore drizzled with Apple Ponzu Sauce. The Sashimi is always fresh and sliced in healthy size pieces. Don’t forget the Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice or the Tropical Avocado Bowl. Yum!
The servers and managers go out of their way to complete the experience. You can sit and never be rushed out of your table or you can let them know you are limited for time and every effort is made to accommodate your schedule.
Nice folks! Great Food! Beautiful restaurant!
It’s a great experience and a fun place to take out-of-towners too.
This is one of our favorite restaurants - a quick lunch or a long lunch, can be had. The food is always fresh and good, service is always attentive and accomodating.
We go there for many business lunches because it is always reliable for good food and service. It is filled with people, yet quiet enough to have a conversation without shouting.
They have a great variety of cooked and raw dishes, so everyone can enjoy something.
The "long lunch" crowd can enjoy some interesting wines and Sakis sitting and staring at the great view of Los Angeles (on a clear day). On a warm enough day, the patio is a fine place to dine and enjoy the sunshine.
SKY HIGH AT LA's TAKAMI SUSHI.
I must give a round of applause to Takami Sushi! I love this place and frequent it often. I travel alot and find this place to be one of my favorite roof top restaurants in the world mainly because of the awesome food, setting, and awesome General Manager who is always making sure we are enjoying ourselves.
Whats better than a 21st Floor Sushi Spot during an LA Sunset. Wicked!!
Sure some things aren't perfect, but nothing is. Tell the management if something isn't up to your standards and I am sure they will work to make it better.
I would highly recommend Takami Sushi over any spot I have been in LA for the food, energy, and setting.
The night club next door rocks on a Friday and Saturday night too.
I hope to see you there.
What a mess.
I have no idea where these people are coming up with the positive reviews. This place was a joke. I live in NY, and I was really looking forward to a birthday dinner there on Saturday. Instead of seating us at a table, they sat us in the lounge. We had a table of 16, and only one server. At one point our table hadn't been bussed and our friendstarted serving people. Not to mention the lighting was so bright. So much for ambiance.
The food was decent, but the service was such a sh*t show, I found it hard to focus on the food.
I don't recommend it at all! What a waste of money.
Not as good as Club Sushi!. This place is visually appealing but the ffod is much better at club sushi in Hollywood. Plus they have a DJ. No competition.
Love the Hours and the Environment. The sashimi was really fresh and the handrolls were packed with flavor. My favorite was the crunch roll...but no one can beat the ones at Club Sushi.
Good fusion sushi rolls. Love the way the restaurant is set up. It was very busy we were seated promptly. We had made reservations. Their flavor sake is really good. I would compare the food to Sushi Roku. Overall I had a good experience dining here. I would def. go back.
