To have open windows (and heated seating areas) on the 21st floor in downtown LA was unique. The small plates were very small but also very good. If you ordered chicken, you received one skewer. The prices were on the high side.

The restaurant was wonderful. Sushi selection was excellent. Atmosphere offers one of a kind views of the LA skyline.

On the 21st floor, my colleague and I weren't sure how it would be. It had been a long day and the restaurant was just blocks from our hotel. Got off the elevator and through the bar area. Four attractive women in the mid-20's checked out we two old guts (60ish). Chose to sit "outside", as it was in the... More

Located on the 21st floor, you get a nice view of the city. Food was fine, a lot of choices. Especially enjoyed the 21st sushi roll.

Servers often deliver to the wrong tables. Mediocre taste, over priced, over hyped. I made a terrible choice of going to this place for our anniversary dinner. The city view is blocked by taller buildings and the skyline window had the blinds down at night time; staff was unwilling to bring them up to enjoy a better view of Los... More

First time for us sampling sushi in LA, so not sure where to start. This yelp recommended spot seemed like a good choice so we took the elevator up to this restaurant on the top floor. Great view from the patio, not surprisingly. The decor is warm but hip, lots of dark wood. We were waiting to be impressed. It... More

My wife and I recently traveled to California and I decided to take her out to 2 Anniversary Dinners. We had decided on the Yamashiro Sushi place but unfortunately it closed so I went scrambling to find another sushi restaurant and was recommended this one. It did not disappoint. The views from the 21st floor were amazing and the food... More

I went to Takami Sushi for dinner with a friend. We had the swordfish carpaccio, which was fabulous. We also had spicy tuna on crispy rice, yum... The service was wonderful! The manager moved though the whole resteraunt, checking on customers, taking comments or questions. The view from the 22nd floor is spectacular. Takami has facilities for catering events. It...

I went to downtown LA for a visit and decided to have lunch in this restaurant known to have a view of the downtown. But as I entered the restaurant and looked around, I was quite disappointed with what I saw. Not much view of the city in the area where the building is located. I turned my attention to... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
