    We had a great menu with sushi. Wagyu wasnt that special and desserts were not so. But the view is worth it!

    Celebrated my big 4-0 @ this old Hollywood haunt w/ my best LA friends. Come for the drinks, grounds & sunset views but not for the pricey food.

    Great tasting dishes, sushi and cocktails. However, sushi is overpriced

    Great view but bad for vegetarians. Almost no options for non-meat eaters. Dessert and wine were great. Cook indoor garden area.

    The loveliest place. They are more than happy to make you a vegan roll which is not on the menu :)

    Great view! Excellent service! Not super "authentic", but very Hollywood! Check out the garden!

    The Miso Soup and Crunchy Chicken appetizers are outstanding! The Miso Soup is probably the best in the world and the chicken is delicious. The view from the restaurant is a must see.

    Salt Plate Wagyu is amazing. Ask for Nader, best service ever, super attentive.

    The lobster and the NZ lamb were badly overlooked. The sushi and sashimi were fresh. Overall the main dishes were quite disappointing.

    Perched in the Hollywood Hills, Yamashiro, was once a private estate with polished gardens, and has been open to the public, as a Japanese restaurant, for over three decades. Read more

    The food is good (not stellar), but not traditional Japanese. Remember to carry $15 in cash to take care of valet parking.

    Come on a Thursday for the farmers market. Stay for drinks on the patio overlooking the city. No other place like it.

    This place is all about the view, because is awesome. But unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the food, especially sushi. Recomendado para disfrutar con amigos en LA.

    Himalayan salt stake cooked at your table, Darth Vader roll, sake, s'mores and a great view. Nice Sunday date place.

    Love this cozy fusion Japanese restaurant in the hills of Hollywood. The food is delicious and creative; even if you aren't hungry having a cocktail at night is a must. What a view!

    Perfect ambience for a date spot with yummy food and cocktails, especially during the summer when the Pagoda Bar is open. –Sophie

    Himalayan Salt Steak is ridiculous. You cook the steak on a 500 degree block of salt at your table. Get it

  • Lisa L.

    A very romantic place! You should try and get a seat besides the window so you can look at the view while you dine. For dessert, try the strawberry doughnut dessert or the ice cream cookie sandwich!

    Great Japanese food, with an awesome Hollywood view. It's expensive and hard to get to - since it's located near the Hollywood Bowl. Try the Darth Vader roll.
