Best sushi in LA. Exquisite fish, excellent quality and presentation.
Authentic sushi. Great quality.
Amazing quality and service as always. Seasonal fish was excellent, not to mention the egg cake (can literally eat that for B/L/D).. Thank you chef Hiro and Mrs K! A+
Definitely a must try for sushi purists
Extraordinary service and amazing sushi!
Sushi was slightly disappointing for the price
There was little variety in the dishes and preparations were uninspiring. The sushi was nothing more than rather average fish over rice. If looking for a touch of lemon zest, yuzu or any other subtle complement tp the fish, go elsewhere. At one point, five out of six pieces were tuna. This was a total disappointment. Just go to Sushi Zo where the fish is reliably excellent if looking for omakase.
Sublime in every way. Never had better sushi outside Tokyo. Eric and Hiro are both graceful, creative and masterful. Very expensive, of course, but well worth it.

One of the worst meals I've had! And the price tag was ridiculous. A huge disappointment. I would never go there again.
The ambiance was very intimate and personal. It was just a group of my friends and the sushi chef and waitresses. The entire experience was unique. However for as much as we paid I expected more food. In terms of quality the food was great. In terms of quantity, it was lacking.
Extraordinary experience, outstanding food and service, wonderful discussions with the chef, felt very welcomed, thank you for a special evening.
Some of the best sushi I’ve ever eaten outside of Japan. Served by graceful, friendly chefs (thanks, Erik!) in a grand space. The superb experience does come at a price: Dinner for one, with a $200 bottle of sake, was almost $500.
This is the place for people who like to experience the authentic high end raw fish. I went for dinner tasting menu. Only a couple of plates that are cooked. The sauces are delicate and tasty. I couldnt believe how the real wasabi can be so mild. It’s fun to observe how the chefs prepare food for you one bite at a time. The fish are fresh from various parts of the world. One fish (I don’t remember the name) tastes like coconut meat with the crunch and everything. It would be better if they offer more than one desert.
Every bite was amazing, and hope to come back again! Happy new year!
Fantastic as Always! The sushi and service is top notch!
It was super delightful, amazing flavours , super intimate, the highest quality of produce and skill showcased in its best form . I loved the amazing service and atmosphere . Love love loved it
2nd time coming to Q and it was better than my first...I loved the rice!!! The red vinegar rice was superb, well seasoned and perfectly cooked so that each grain was plump, sticky and perfectly jewel like. 3 types of snapper 4 types of yellowtail all showcasing unique individual traits that even a newcomer to sushi can easily understand.
So yea...I would say I like it here.
Got in a fight with my girlfriend the day before we went here. After eating at Q it’s safe to say that it saved our relationship. Thanks Q!
Q is authentic and delicious! The sushi chef was engaging and shared wonderful information about the different fish and his process for buying fish as well. The quality was outstanding! Each dish was flavorful and perfectly prepared. I can't wait to return. One of the best experiences I have had in a long time!
Exceptional hi level sushi and sashimi, probably among the best in LA.
Expectation was so high coming to this place. Toro dishes were pretty good and others are average comparing to others high end omakase. For 200 per person, i have had better sushi omakase experience else where.
Great experience as always. Took my brother and he had nothing but praise for the way Chef Hiro goes about each dish and the preparation. His dedication is evident in each item presented, amazing quality and the service A+ Thank you Chef Hiro and Mrs. K.
This is certainly Sushi done right. There is no menu, only two options for dinner. The chef chooses and serves the sushi. You do not even add soy. The chef is world renown, and if you want to experience sushi at its finest, this is likely THE place in socal. That said, it was too expensive for what it was. Perhaps I don't know my sushi well enough though.
Q is one of a handful places one can step into a Zen-like trance and focus one's entire being on enjoying authentic Tokyo sushi from a true master artisan. Chaos and chance have no place here; the sushi bar is transcendent and orderly, with every item placed with quiet intention and care. Likewise, each dish you'll consume will be created with the same intent and expertise. Spring for the Botan menu (requires 42hr advance notice), and you might receive fermented silver shrimp, Washington Kumomoto (IIR) with ponzu sauce, Uni marinated in sweetened miso for two weeks, anago sushi, and o-toro, toro, and more, with numerous courses of sushi. From casting ones eyes upon a dish, to holding it -- whether by chopsticks or by fingers -- and then relishing the textures, flavors, and temperatures, everything is set up for you to enter a dining trance and commune your senses with these treasures from the sea. This is Tokyo sushi at the high-end of refinement and pleasure.
A+ Service, they offered sake tasting for the remainder of the meal after we had finished the bottle we ordered. Consistent quality. Thank you Chef Hiro
This was my first time eating at Q. I had heard people hype it up, but from our experience, It did not meet the hype.
Fresh ingredients, attentive service, A+! Thank you Chef Hiro
There is no doubt that this is a high end sushi/sashimi restaurant. But that is what it is. Sushi and Sashimi. Lots of it! Big meal is 17 courses. Very well done. Some items were excellent to outstanding and very memorable. Some items were a little flat and are very forgettable. It is a very nice dining experience with a price that matches.
Be prepared they automatically add 20% gratuity to the bill and it appears they add it pre-tax, so that you are paying tax on the 20% gratuity.
Sushi is ok but not outstanding.
Amazing quality, excellent service. A must try, Will definitely return. Thank you Chef Hiro. A+
The best sushi we've ever eaten. The seafood was so fresh and premium grade. Because of the simplicity of each course, the flavor of each piece was showcased.
best sushi in LA, hands down. Perfect for a special occasion
It was a great experience. Best tamago I have ever had.
Hi, the food was delicious and fresh but the place was very busy and bit noisy. When I arrived I did have an issue with the Open Table Reservation. They told me that they did not have a reservation and I should call and not use Open Table. They were able to seat up at the bar.
I made the reservation for my out of town friend and his 13 year old grandson. His feedback to me was "spectacular". He said the food was amazing, every attention to detail was amazing, and each dish was memorable. His note to me was that every morsel was consumed. He said the restaurant team treated them phenomenally well, the people they met at the sushi bar were terrific, and observing all of the dishes being constructed was very special. It is very small and it is expensive, but his comments were that' "it was special and well worth it". One of the most enjoyable meals he has had in a long time, and as far as sushi goes, every morsel was just phenomenal.
Brought my husband here for his birthday. I read reviews on Yelp and made a reservation despite some of the comments. The restaurant itself is very elegant with modern touches but keeping in form with the Japanese aesthetic. They have a small sake selection, however you won't be able to find anything less than $45 for a 10-12 oz carafe, a larger 24 oz bottle ranged from $65 upwards to $200+. We decided on the $200 pp omakase option but felt it wasn't on par with other omakase experiences we've had in LA or Japan before. While the fish itself was delicious and beautifully prepared, the rice was over seasoned and overwhelmed every single bite so that it was hard to differentiate each course from the other. While we dined I recalled a particular Yelp reviewer's comment that the rice was way too sour and I would have to agree that it was not that delicate rice vinegar flavor anyone who knows nigiri would be accustomed to. Instead we were met with an apple cider vinegar tartness that lingered on the palate. And I'm only guessing they use apple cider vinegar based on the color of the rice which had a slight reddish brown hue. The meal ended somewhat abruptly when we were served a piece of their special tomago and a cup of hot green tea. The tomago, while delicate and almost cake-like in it's texture, appeared to be prepared unevenly, meaning we were served a border and corner piece from the tray and it was also a little sunken in, similar to what a cake does after it's from removed the oven. Overall it struck me a little odd that it's corners or edges weren't trimmed to ensure the tomago had the same texture throughout. Corners and edges work for brownies but when you're expecting the same meticulous Japanese preparation you're used to with other omakase experiences, it left me regretting spending $600+ for a meal that left little to no impression on me. I would not recommend this place for dinner but if you're curious they also serve lunch at a much lower price point.
Authentic Tokyo-style sushi omakase. I've been to Jiro, Kyubei, Nozawa Bar, Sushi Sho (Tokyo and Hawaii) and other sushi restaurants throughout Japan and around the world.
This is one of my top sushi experiences.
Best Sushi/Sashimi experience imaginable. Pricey, but if you're a foodie it's a must at least once. If your blessed with plenty of income, return visits will be without question.
