Everything was so fresh and servings so impeccably displayed. This is my favorite restaurant, with fish flown in daily. Despite being a fish oriented restaurant, the wagyu course is still one of the highlights. Just wish the waiters would speak more slowly when describing the...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
