It was my first time going here, it was fantastic. I love the view, the service and the food. I know its a bit expensive but you get what you pay for.. quality and taste. I love the romantic setting, just wish we would have had better seating. Overall, it was amazing!
The WORST service ever!!!!
The view was great however, our waitress was rude, EXTRA slow and ignored us all night.
My wine glass had lip stick on it (from someone else), Sushi was dry and we found a few ants on the platter, I accidently dropped my fork and the waitress took a whole 10 minutes before she asked someone else to bring me a new one.. A fly also flew into my water (I can pass that as an accident) and when I asked for our bill, the waitress took an additional 20 minutes. I was extremely angry because she nearly had us miss the first half of our concert.. We had to go to the host and have them print our bill. Other then a spectacular view and a great steak salad, the place needs to shape up and work on being attentive and clean.
Yamashiro was my birthday treat this year. The building and grounds are exquisite and the view of the city is among the best I have seen. We ate in the garden area which was very nice. Food and drinks were wonderful as well. Food highlights were the Vader roll and the s'mores dessert.
There have been some negative reviews about this place in the past, but the times we have gone, it has been to die for. Their miso salmon is heaven in your mouth, the ribs are addictive, and the kobe beef just melts into your stomach. Decent wine list. Their sushi is not the best though. Ambience is incredibly romantic and if its a clear day, the view is spectacular. It's a bit on the pricy side for normal folk, but if you want to splurge, this is a great place to do it. My husband and I will go back there again and again.
Yamashiro is one of my favorite spots in LA. The location is gorgeous with a great view of the city. The restaurant itself it beautiful, with an outdoor garden to sit around and awesome Japanese decor. Also, the staff is so cool - ask Steve the bartender to do some magic tricks for you!
We went there last night for a romantic dinner. The staff sat us next to a table of 15 that was probably there for their office Christmas party. They were loud and obnoxious and more suited for TGI Fridays. I would think that the staff would know to sit a large group like this in a banquet type room. Or at least, ask them to tone it down. The food was ordinary. The sushi was small and tasteless, the steak was presented a la Sizzler, and the service was slow and inattentive. If we ever go back, it will just be for drinks at the bar.
This is a romantic restaurant nestled in the hills of Hollywood with a dynamic view of all of Los Angeles. You'll want reservations and an occasion to celebrate at this restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is truly a feast for the palate. And don't forget to visit the garden!
