Visited on a Friday night with my best friend and had such a great time at the restaurant. We ate our meal like it was a 5 course dinner! We just ordered things a little bit at a time and enjoyed our stay there. Advice, make reservations so you don't have to wait. But if you do wait, there is a great bar with wonderful decor so you can just hang out. It's a little dark in there though, kinda hard to read the menu. Ambiance was nice, the music was at a perfect level and it was all good music. Service was great, considering the place was packed out waiter was very attentive and nice! Taking off a star because they let you smoke in the "outdoor" section, which really isn't outdoor. So the smoke just gets pushed around the room by fans. We had the yellowtail sushi, so fresh and buttery! Great cuts and presentation. There was also on our table a shrimp tempura roll. Presentation was simple, but it was good. Rolls are a bit small for the price. There was also a bay scallop roll, which was yummy but I thought it would have been better warm than cold. We opted out of dessert. If you haven't been here yet. then don't hesitate and make reservation reservation in advance!
This place is really cool! The food is awesome and you can find some movie stars dinning next to you! The Green tea is out of this world, the food is excellent, the scene is the best in Los Angeles. Went here a couple of times one for new years eve and one on a girl's night out. Deliciously fresh and beautifully prepared food. We shared a range of dishes and all were divine: oysters, kobe beef tataki, sashimi, tuna carpaccio, and eggplant with miso. Service was excellent and the atmosphere dark and funky. First time we sat at the sushi bar and the head chef made us whatever we requested in front of us, it was superb! Second time we had a table also good but not as much fun. Prices are a little bit high for Japanese food but it's totally worth it! I would recommend getting a reservation as they had a somewhat intimidating doorman.
Good quality traditional sushi in a hip West Hollywood setting. Everything I tried was top notch. The interior is quite nice. I like sushi at Sushi-Gen, but they lack nice atmosphere. At Jinpachi, you can enjoy the meal in a nice quiet setting and talk to your friend for a couple of friends without being rushed.
