This restaurant is a landmark here in LA. You have to go here if you have visiting guests, it affords you with a panoramic view of LA from up in the Hollywood Hills. The place is just awesome! The food might be pricey but worth every penny.
THE FOOD IS TOO PRICEY FOR WHAT U ASK FOR. I DON'T REMEMBER IF IT WAS GOOD OR NOT BUT I DO REMEMBER I HAD TO ORDER ALOT OF DIME SIZED SUSHIS. DON'T GO THERE TO DINE. GO THERE TO HANG OUT AND HAVE A COCTAIL W/YOUR FRIENDS.
Yamashiro is an excellent restaurant. Sure, it might be a bit pricey, but it is an upscale eatery and worth every penny. From the valet parking upon arrival to the great dessert at the end of the meal, you will have a great time. You�re high on the hill so you will enjoy the view as well as the ambience. I give it thumbs up!
I try to go there as often as possible. When you step in there its like you walked back in time to the golden age of Hollywood. Amazing food, just amazing. and the view......well you have to experience that for yourself. Do yourself a favor and go
My impression of this place was something of grandure....it definitely fit the perfect romantic setting overlooking the city of Hollywood. Unfortunately, there was an overcast. I definitely had high expectations for the ambiance. That's why I paid so much. Of course, I didn't expect much of the food for what I paid for. It definitely set the right mood, but the food was not THE best considering it was a Cal-Asian cuisine. I only have high expectations when it comes to sushi. They definitely had some interesting rolls. I tried the Darth Vadar roll, pretty interesting. But I also had the filet mignon, which was ok for that type of restaurant. I wasn't expecting Arnie Morton's. Anyways, I would definitely recommend for atmosphere, but for any other occasion, unless you've got the money, I wouldn't go there.
i dont think there is anything i dont like about yamshiro...the view is breathtaking, the city lights of hollywood and all of los angeles lay at your feet throughout your entire cocktail and dining experience.the food is a solid 5 out of 5. our server was just as friendly and efficient as could be. its hard to spend the evening up there and not feel the vibe of the amazing hollywood history all around. the restaurant itself is so unique and just beautiful! before you venture up there take a few minutes to read about yamashiro and the history of the building itself, it will make it even more interesting. this is not a place to go if you are on a budget, it is pricey! we dont go there often but for special celebrations it always tops our list. also,i think yamashiro is more of an intamate place for two or four people maybe ,with a large group you may lose some of the intamacy. we just love yamashiro and hope you will too.
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.
This restaurant was just lovely, the food was great and the ambiance even better. This restaurant over looks the city and if your are seated in just the right spot you are sure to be delighted. Although I had a great time with my girls, it would have been nice to have been on a date with YOU.
I was introduced to Yamashiro when I was 20 yrs. old (I'm 38 now). I remember being in awe from the moment I stepped out of the car. Yamashiro was home to two princes before being converted to a restaurant but it remains regal. It is absolutely the most beautiful, romantic restaurant in the entire Los Angeles County. The view is spectacular. The food is wonderful. The service is a little slow but who would want to be rushed out. I've tried to find new restaurants with similar ambiance but nothing comes close to Yamashiro. This is the perfect place to pop the question. Don't forget to visit the hidden bonsai garden located outside near the valet.
