A special place on the 25th floor with stunning views of downtown. Sushi excellent and presentations of all dishes-rolls in particular worthy of photos.

Have been there with friends and colleagues after a long congress day. Ambiente is modern but cosy. Food is delicious with lots of variaties in japanese dishes. Not only typical sushi place. Price level is not cheap but worth it.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. A lot of very cool drinks and small plates to share make it a good restaurant for a date or even with a group. Big fan of it being on the 26th floor too. A little on the pricier side...More

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.

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
