Takami Sushi & Robata Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Good food with a great view!
My daughter and I had a beautiful dinner evening! The food was delicious especially the sea bass and salmon dinner! The restaurant has an amazing view and service was great!
Nice atmosphere and views. Food only average.
Prices expensive for what you get. But if you want a nice location, it's worth it. Robata portions are very small. Their specialty cocktails were very good.
Value is not there
Nice view, good service average food for such an expensive price.
Happy Anniversary to me (us)
Were were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary, and I decided to try something different and fun, so I searched Opentable and found this unique restaurant which is open air on the 21st floor. I recollect reading about it and wanted to try it out, so we booked through Opentable, and fortunately, I found a coupon through Living Social as well!. The food is like Tapas, which means sharing small plates. The restaurant kitchen is actually 3 different cuisines, from sushi bar to Robata to main entrees. The stand outs are the sushi rolls, which are filling and exotic. Next would probably be the appetizers, such as the crispy rice with fish roe. If you want to impress, this is a special place.
Great for Romantic Evening
Staff was great and the sushi was amazing. The staff was very accommodating and even reserved a seat with a scenic view upon request. Definitely made a great evening for my lady and I on her birthday.
Beautiful view of DTLA with a delicious menu!
Celebrating our anniversary at Takami was one of the most memorable. The view of the downtown LA skyline is captivating and their food wakes up your tastebuds! Definitely returning not just for a special occasion.
The food was yummy
The food was yummy our server was good but over worked. The management was lazy. Our heater was broken. They lost my credit card. Check out took so long I lost my uber ride and was changed $10. For the foods sake I will try again
I has a great time!
We had reservations for 915 and didn't get seated down until almost 945. No big deal, being that there is a very nice selection of beverages at the waiting area by the busy bar. It felt like it was a busy night with a slightly over 40 crowd. The food selection was great and from what we tried the food was amazing( including the complementary edamame for the wait). I'm curious to visit this place for happy hour. I'm going to return for sure.
Food was delicious and the view is amazing.
We loved every part of this restaurant but the service was the best service I've ever experienced.
Unique and awesome
Totally amazing experience enjoying pefectly prepared Japanese sushi and robata style cuisine while taking in awesome views of US BankTower and downtown LA
Great downtown La restaurant!!
Great downtown La restaurant!!
Enjoyable dinner, a little loud and did not like that we seated in the back corner. Will request otherwise next time as I have been here several times and I am always seated in the same back corner.
Great Food and View
Our second time at Takami was every bit as good as our first experience there. We timed it right and got to see the sunset over downtown LA--hard to rival the view as the lights of the city came up. The drinks and food are creative and fun, with something for everyone; the service is good. Speaking of the drinks, my only complaint (as with almost every other cocktail bar I've been to recently), the drinks are too sweet. But the valet parking is a big plus . We'll be back.

Amazing view! Very nice environment, modern, simple and interactive. The one thing missing to make this place perfect is the food. Sushi is okay, but still a long way to go. The thing bothers me is the sushi rice, a perfect sushi is supposed to have chill, refreshing taste with a little vinegar behind it. But the rice in Takami is warm, mushy and no taste of vinegar at all.
Definitely Coming Back
Could not have asked for a better night. Our server, Sayanara, helped me through everything since it was my first time there with my date. Came here to treat my fiancé out for his birthday && he loved it! Definitely great vibes with great company all thanks to Takami. Definitely coming back with more people.

The food is great, well prepared and fresh. Eating on the patio, 21 floors up is quite an experience. Worth it just for the view.
In downtown LA, found this sushi place on Open Table. With a group of six one night and returned the next night with 5. Great options with their 3 kitchens. Tried all three. Eggplant appetizer excellent, alsothe tuna on crispy crackers. Favorite rolls, their 21(??), dynamite, and spicy tuna and salmon. Lobster just okay, nothing special. How could I forget, great cocktails!

Place is strange, sort of feel like you're in the 80's in a lounge. Dark and noisy space. Sushi was ok, nothing special. Service was prompt. Nothing really bad about this place but nothing very good either

The view was fantastic and the vibe was very trendy. The food came out right on time and our waitress gave some great recommendations!
Fantastic downtown LA gem
This was our first time in LA and were pleasantly supprised by this Japanese Fusion restaurant. It was a birthday weekend and the waitress made it very special for us. The view was incredible and the food was sensational. Will definitely recommend to friends and family when in LA.
Grade C sushi with a grade A+++ view

Great scenic city view
I loved the food, the view, the service done right, just not the price. The manager came over and made sure everything was good the way a restaurant manager should. Our waiter had good recommendations, and the sushi itself was GREAT! We got 5-6 different kinds of rolls, sashimi, and special dishes and 2 mixed drinks. I bought a coupon to go to this spot, $60 for $100 worth of food thinking I probably wouldn't spend $100, but I ended up spending $120. Each dish/drink was priced to remind you that you're paying for the experience and the view.

Nice views and the happy hour prices are very reasonable
Great food with a million dollar view. Service is usually very good and occasional amendments to a menu item may be permitted. If you don't have the crispy rice feel free to kick yourself.
Cool spot but bring don't come hungry
The place has a very cool vibe and view... However it's pricey and the portions aren't any bigger than any other sushi restaurant. Noise level is high, but music is good. We went on a Thursday, for dinner and it was pretty busy, but services was still pretty fast once we got our server's attention. Overall, cool place to have a drink and enjoy the view.
Unique Dining Experience
This lovely facility ticks all the boxes my wife & I look for in fine dining. Best Lamb Chops ever. Beautiful to be at eye level with the top of the LA skyline in creatively constructed open air ambiance at sunset.
Awesome spot awesome food !

Wonderful food and service
I took my boyfriend here for his bday and was extremely happy with the whole experience! They had afforDable valet parking, easy reservation options, and the location is gorgeous! I mentioned in my reservation that it was for a bday and from the moment we entered, they made him feel very special. Our server, Casey, was funny and absolutely made for a great evening. He let us have our alone time, but never made us feel forgotten abut. He was prompt and knowledgable! The food was amazing! (Dragon roll is too die for!) Our beers were a little bit pricey, but the food was priced right for the quality and size. The VIEW! If you can request a spot along the outside edge! It is incredible and even at night we only needed a light jacket since the heaters were on! We will definitely be returning as soon as we can!
Our server was great. The food was OUTSTANDING. I am a huge fan of this restaurant. I look forward to our next visit.
Sushi With A Billion Dollar View
My fiancé and I went the evening before Valentine's Day, so it was very crowded and food was slow, but our server was great and the sushi was amazing. The bartenders we visited before we got our table were hysterical. Our table had an amazing view of downtown and the heaters above us kept us warm, since the tables with the best views are outside. The baked roll we ordered came out late and cold (holiday busy), so we sent it back, but the house sake was better than we hoped and the cold beers with the fresh fish made it all perfect. I recommend the salmon sushi, and any of the tuna sushi. It was super fresh and great quality.
The radiant read a great place to bring my wife for valentine.
dinner for two
It was the perfect sushi spot for valentimes day weekend. I had great sashimi & the mochi ice cream is out of this world. Defenately will be back soon.
