Had the best club experience on Saturday Night visits! Living in LA it can be hard to find that perfect combination of great music, mixed crowd, good drinks, & beautiful views minus the pretentious vibe....& ELEVATE is it! It is the best

We love live music, and this is a pretty good place to go. On the night we went (a Thursday) the band was pretty good, but looked a little unhappy

I was originally pleased because Elevate Lounge had guaranteed they could accommodate our big group. We were all very excited to have a great night in the beautiful establishment. \r
Unfortunately, I have to make a few complaints. \r

I celebrated my birthday 3 years ago @ Elevate and had a great time! A group of 13 of my closest friends ordered bottle service and all I can say is that we had 2 very spacious sections. Prices aren't cheap but lets face it where in trendy

This place is awful! The worst service and too many security guards. feels like a prison! \r
I had only been there for a few minutes, then was kicked out in the cold for not having my button shirt on! They didnt give me a chance to look

I went there last week on a Thursday and had a blast! The music was great, it was a mixed crowd and the vibe was cool. I liked that the DJs played some hip hop and some house music too, not just the same music all night. It took a minute to get a drink from the bar, but well worth it, it was STRONG! I'm definitely going to try to hit this place up again!

This is my first time reviewing a restaurant on Citysearch although I use this site all the time. Our waitress suggested I write something nice because I told her so many of the reviews are bad and I almost didn't try this place out because of them. First of all a lot of these are about the club and I'm too old to be clubbing but the restaurant was amazing. My wife and I went Monday night with no reservations and we were sat right away even though the place seemed pretty busy. Our waitress was incredible, she explained how the whole restaurant worked and stirred us in the right direction for all of our selections. The food is the BEST part, we have been to all the popular sushi places in L.A. and this is hands down the best we've had. The view sets this place apart too, we sat outside in a high rise.The manager came by twice to make sure we were happy. I'm not sure where all these other people went but Takami is our new favorite place!

The food was nothing special and overpriced, Angus robata skewers were dry and tasteless. Beware their valet--their policy is to lock your keys in the restaurant after closing, so if you go next door for a drink, you may find yourself stranded downtown at 12:20 a.m. as we were, with no car and no house keys. Spent the night on a friend's floor in my dress, took the metro back and had to pay $13 to get my car out the next morning. Nowhere did they warn us that this was the policy.

THIS PLACE is NOT GOOD!!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY....I would NEVER refer this place to anyone....after reading the postings and such bad reviews I thought they were all false until I went myself....They are SO Predujice and the staff is rude...if you are black or latino you will not get in....my friends and I went there for my birthday this past weekend 7/11/09...there was about 20 of us who arrived about 10:45pm and 10 who arrived at 10pm were already upstairs...when the 20 of us got there they would not let us in because the club was full...we could only get in if we paid for bottle service which they tried to charge us $2000 since there were 20 of us and most of our party had to be female....WTF??? We were a mixed crowd (black and latinos), my other 10 friends including my aunts who were already upstairs are white were let in with no problem, but the minute we arrived we could not get in...but they had let 15 asians and about 20 whites in to the club without bottle service...when we asked the bouncer what was that all about...he said oh we know them...I was like whatever....the club outside was dead there was never a line in front....we made them look like they had a line....

We were all dressed way above the dress code...the guys had on suites and the ladies had on short dresses looking fine...we all looked like models...I asked if I could go upstairs to get the rest of my party in which I did...Once I got inside the club it was easy to find my friends because the club was empty, the music sucked, the dance floor had about 5 people if that....the club says they play hip hop and top 40 on Saturday night but does not...it was all tecno...I could see why they wanted money for bottle service, because they needed to meet thier quota for the night....my friends met a lot of people inside and followed us downstairs were we proceeded to leave to go somewhere else who will accept minorities....the bouncers were mad because we took half of the club with us and the few people who were in the front left as well and some rolled with us....

As we we're all leaving one of the bouncers said that we should go across the street because they'll let us in over there...we started to go off on the bouncer but checked out it out anyways...it was a really really nice lounge/club plus it was free to get in and drinks were cheap and good....The place is called Remedy and it was off the hook!!!! REMEDY had a great DJ, nice mixed crowd with all races...cute guys and fine females...so thank you Elevate Lounge for being predujice and not allowing us to get in, because Remedy Lounge was MUCH BETTER!!!!

The security guys have NO clue about crowd control. Standing in line for 45 minutes without moving is nobody's idea of a good time. We never did get into the place because they took only people who were on their list inside and only about 5 or 6 at a time. The other people in line cut in front of us and it was just a mob of people. No line, no order, no manners! Staff did nothing to try to make things better and just acted nasty to everyone. Don't waste your time - go somewhere else.

This place is definitely not as bad as all the reviews say. If you want to have a great time at this beautiful venue with a great view of Los Angeles do yourself a favor plan ahead and get on my guest list. Elevate is a really nice club and expects its clients to understand that they are going to a really nice place so... you have to dress appropriately, the dress code is cocktail dresses or skirts for women and dress shoes and a dress shirt for males. The bouncers are instructed to enforce the dress code ruthlessly so if your outfit is not looking right then you are not going to get in... that is how clubs are EVERYWHERE. Your group will most likely experience the following scenerios:
Guys Only Groups
If you are going with a bunch of guys for a guys night out expect to get bottle service, common sense would you go to a club full of dudes, NO you wouldn't. If you would like to get in right away and not wait at all, i can get you a special deal two gray goose or two patrons for 500 bux, cant beat that. Unless you arrive at 10pm sharp you will have to pay 20 dollars and wait to get in even if you are on the guest list.

Mixed Guys/Girls Groups
If you are coming with a mixed (girl/guy) group you will for sure get in right away if your on my list you might have to wait a little bit but for sure will get in before the group of guys only. Guys will have to pay 20 dollars. Be patient with the door staff and you will get in and have a blast.

Girls Only Groups
If you are coming with your girls for a girls night out and all of you follow the dress code and are looking your best for a Friday night out, then you will get in for free all night on my list (sorry guys, its the world we live in). Don't even worry about it... if there is room in the club and your on my list then you will get it in without waiting.

This place has a great mixed crowd which always ensures a good time all around, its always crowded but has some of the most beautiful people in down town LA who to be honest with you are sometimes hand picked from the line, its no secret and its the way most high end clubs operate. If you go out a lot you should have noticed that by now if you don't go out a lot you will see it happen eventually. But if you want to make sure you get in my best advice is to plan ahead for a good time and email me at jorgejimenez83@gmail to get on the Friday Night Guest List.

All I can say is WOW!

The first time I came here was on New Year's Eve 2009. I had a phenomenal time but will not review the adventure because it would have been good almost anywhere I went. Instead I want to review my past experience from Saturday, my birthday.

I knew that I wanted to invite my friends to a HOT but elegant club with a top-notch feel. ELEVATE is the right place, believe me. I sent an email to make a reservation. Greg, the general manager, called me to set it up. He told me that all of my friends could bypass the cover and the line if they mentioned my name at the door.

When I arrived, they knew exactly who I was, all of the security guards were introduced to me and we went right up VIP style. It felt like the red carpet was rolled out. They gave me the best table in the club and I already had friends waiting who couldn't believe their similar experience. Our cocktail server was awesome and kept us happily drinking all night. The music was ridiculously good and the club was bumpin'. There were good looking people everywhere having a blast. The general manager came by to check on us a couple of times and we all felt very special. ELEVATE was incredibly accommodating to the 50 or so guests that came to celebrate!

We will all come back again and for those I have talked to, have dubbed this our favorite spot in los Angeles.

If you're looking for a cheap place, remember, you get what you pay for. If you want to have a first class experience, this is the place to come.

My girlfriend took me out to Takami for a nice occasion for a dinner. It is a very nice place with a very cool ambience. If you sit by the window you can oversee alittle bit of LA, but mostly the financial district buildings of downtown. So if you come there with a date, I would def recommend sitting on the outside patio by the window, very cool vibe. Nice decor, some music playing in the background, very hip place.

As far as food, a few dishes we tried were delicious. Spicy Tuna on crisply rice is a great appetizer, very tasty. Also we got, penthouse roll - very good, and I got Grilled Salmon in teriyaki sauce - it was melting in my mouth, great dish. And miso soup and edamame, same as everywhere. Some people were saying their portions are small, but I would have to disagree. Their sushi rolls are about 8 pieces, and appetizer and entree very good sized portions. I had Takami 10 coctails, very tasty and on the strong side.

Price was not bad either, its pricey but not on the very expensive side. Our bill for the above order came out to 80 bucks before tip, which is not bad at all, and we were full. So if you come here to enjoy a nice light (meaning not stuffing yourself out) dinner, it will not cost you an arm and a leg.

Service was very good as well, waitress was fast and very attentive. Elevate lounge next door is nothing special, just your basic hollywood type lounge, with dj spinning top 40 (which I dont care for too much). Hostess at Takami was kinda bitchy as far as getting us to the Elevate, she kept saying shes waiting for a club manager to come out and give us tickets, which never happened, i think she was just bs'ing. But my GF worked her around that by asking a security guy at the club while i was in the restroom. Very good maneuvre by her. So anyways, I would def recommend Takami Sushi, for nice dinner and to enjoy the vibe and atmosphere. Worth the visit at least once

Lunch or dinner Takami is the place to be if you??re downtown Los Angeles. With multiple kitchens providing traditional Japanese dishes to Sushi to the Robata Bar there is something for everyone in your party. Do you have someone at your table that just can??t get the idea of raw fish past their nose? Try the Robata Bar! The baby lamb chops are out of this world. A skewer of Chilean Sea Bass is cooked to buttery perfection.

Sushi lover? In addition to tradition sushi rolls Takami has some of the best signature rolls in town! The Takami Roll is probably my favorite with Spicy Tuna, Snow Crab, Asparagus and Albacore drizzled with Apple Ponzu Sauce. The Sashimi is always fresh and sliced in healthy size pieces. Don??t forget the Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice or the Tropical Avocado Bowl. Yum!

The servers and managers go out of their way to complete the experience. You can sit and never be rushed out of your table or you can let them know you are limited for time and every effort is made to accommodate your schedule.

Nice folks! Great Food! Beautiful restaurant!
It??s a great experience and a fun place to take out-of-towners too.
Enjoy!

I must give a round of applause to Takami Sushi! I love this place and frequent it often. I travel alot and find this place to be one of my favorite roof top restaurants in the world mainly because of the awesome food, setting, and awesome General Manager who is always making sure we are enjoying ourselves.

Whats better than a 21st Floor Sushi Spot during an LA Sunset. Wicked!!

Sure some things aren't perfect, but nothing is. Tell the management if something isn't up to your standards and I am sure they will work to make it better.

I would highly recommend Takami Sushi over any spot I have been in LA for the food, energy, and setting.

The night club next door rocks on a Friday and Saturday night too.

I hope to see you there.

Pros: Special Rolls, Drinks, Views,

This is one of our favorite restaurants - a quick lunch or a long lunch, can be had. The food is always fresh and good, service is always attentive and accomodating.

We go there for many business lunches because it is always reliable for good food and service. It is filled with people, yet quiet enough to have a conversation without shouting.

They have a great variety of cooked and raw dishes, so everyone can enjoy something.

The "long lunch" crowd can enjoy some interesting wines and Sakis sitting and staring at the great view of Los Angeles (on a clear day). On a warm enough day, the patio is a fine place to dine and enjoy the sunshine.

We go there for many business lunches because it is always reliable for good food and service. It is filled with people, yet quiet enough to have a conversation without shouting.

They have a great variety of cooked and raw dishes, so everyone can enjoy something.

The "long lunch" crowd can enjoy some interesting wines and Sakis sitting and staring at the great view of Los Angeles (on a clear day). On a warm enough day, the patio is a fine place to dine and enjoy the sunshine.

Pros: great view, attentive service, fresh and creative fish

I have no idea where these people are coming up with the positive reviews. This place was a joke. I live in NY, and I was really looking forward to a birthday dinner there on Saturday. Instead of seating us at a table, they sat us in the lounge. We had a table of 16, and only one server. At one point our table hadn't been bussed and our friendstarted serving people. Not to mention the lighting was so bright. So much for ambiance.

The food was decent, but the service was such a sh*t show, I found it hard to focus on the food.

I don't recommend it at all! What a waste of money.

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: no clue how to serve a large party

I've been to elevate quite a few times with my friends and it's a nice little spot downtown. However, if you're looking for a similar atmosphere with better sushi, I'd go with Club Sushi in Hollywood.

This place is visually appealing but the ffod is much better at club sushi in Hollywood. Plus they have a DJ. No competition.

My girlfriend and I went to dinner at Takami and I made reservations at Elevate as well. We were very well taken care of and did not have to wait to get in. The place got filled up by 11:30 and the great was good. They played a lot of top 40 and hip-hop, although we enjoy house music more. Otherwise, not bad...

""It's a Privilage to be here"...that's what the old doofus Club Manager said. After Spending close to 500 dollars at the adjacent Sushi restaurant, the manager to Elevate gave the girls free passes and the guys front of the line passes that still cost 20 bux cover charge. Well one of our friends didn't get a pass and the manager made him go all the way down to the back of the line 21 floors down. He would not budge. So we're all inside the club and the DJ is horrible...mashing up ac/dc with some off the wall hip hop song and cutting the songs way too short. Then the drinks were not even all that good (with extremely rude bartenders) and they charged 11-12 bucks per drink! I do not recommend this place."

We were invited to Elevate last weekend and really loved the location. We were on the guest list, so no issues at the door. Door staff was nice and got us right in. There was an ugly crowd waiting at the door, but we never saw them upstairs. The crowd upstairs was very good. The music was good, but I would prefer more house music. Drinks are priced OK at $11. Definitely going to head back.

I strongly do NOT recommend you waste your time or money at this place.
Servers are rude, doormen are rude, management was not even present, bartenders incomepetent ( all be it expected it is Downtown after all).

I forked over $20 to get into an empty club with my girlfriend and then we were told to get up from the seats we were in for more than 20 minutes because the table we were at was "Now reserved".

If you're looking for a cool spot downtown head for the STANDARD, better vibe, better staff, and better view.

Don't ruin perfectly good evening. Take your girlfriend to the STANDARD after dinner and skip the nightmare of RUDE, LAME, and POOR SERVICE.

With any luck this piece of garbage will be out of business before the summer.

Love the way the restaurant is set up. It was very busy we were seated promptly. We had made reservations. Their flavor sake is really good. I would compare the food to Sushi Roku. Overall I had a good experience dining here. I would def. go back.

I had read a variety of reviews on this restaurant (pro and con) before deciding this week to have dinner there prior to a Staples concert.... Based upon some of the negative reviews I almost avoided Takami...I'm sure glad we didn't! Our party of four tried a little of everything (robata, seared yellowtail with diced chiles, duck breast, tropical avocado bowl, spicy tuna on crispy rice, 21st roll, etc.)... it is obvious that a lot of thought went into the creation of the menu/dishes, as well as the artful presentation. Everything we tried was memorable, including the manager checking in with us to make sure we were happy with our meal and service. Although in may not be the very best sushi you've ever had, overall the amazing view of the LA skyline and the exceptional service we experienced insures that we will be back!

Takami has great sushi then go over to elevate and relax with a few friends and drinks. Bring some girls if you want to get in.

This place is way overrated! Me and a group of friends got a table at pre-thanksgiving event and it sucked. The bottle gets locked up in a case on your table and only gets opened when the waitress decides she feels like coming by!

The main door guy (steve) has a serious attitude problem...

As far as the greygoose...they didn't even let people in until after the hour was up.

The group next to us had a member of their party (table) held at the line for 45 min! It wasn't until they had to physically drag a staff member out to the front that they were able to get in!

If you like waiting for 1 hr, crappy bottle service, or getting harassed to buy a bottle at the door then this is the spot for you.

The place isn't that big also but i will give it this it has a nice view.

We have been to Elevate 5 or 6 times and have enjoyed it every time. We went in last night and they had a Thanksgiving party for their customers. They had free Grey Goose pouring for an hour! I dont write any reviews, but no other club takes care of their customers like this! My friends and I will continue to go to Elevate. There are clubs and there are CLUBS like Elevate. Go out there and have fun!

I went to Elevate for an after-party for a film release and didn't know what to expect. The place is absolutely stunning!!! The views are spectacular and the staff was well-prepared for the event. We sat at a table outside on the patio, chatted it up, and enjoyed the view all night long. I will definitely be back with my regualr crew for dancing.

I will say the bartenders were cool but felt like I was leasing bottle service rather than purchasing it.. they kept it on lock the whole time until the hostess took her little sweet time to come back to our table, by the end of the night I still had half full bottle left because I got tired of hunting her down. When the club was over she had no problem getting to my table to snatch up my half-full bottle. I don't want to spend my night micro-managing a good time when I paid to have that done...this happened on several occasions. I've been there a few times and each time was horrible in a different way. The security kindly directed me to owner,hoping to get some customer service and he treated me like a piece of dirt. I left my table for 5 minutes and came back to him and his friends at my table. He told the security to kick my friend out the club because he was wasted at my table I paid for. The owner was arrogant and thought he was better than everybody. You have to remember why you have business there not for you and your snooty friends, it's for the customers. it's all a facade, an entrance to hell is what I experienced.

We tried out this place on Saturday night and had a great time. The crowd was good and the music was great. We thought it was going to be cold and rained out, but it was neither. There seemed to be more girls than guys, but most of the girls were dancing in groups. The door was difficult since we were four guys, but we just waited and the door guy let us in, but made us pay cover. We will head back there. It was good times.

It's not often that a restaurant or club can ruin a perfectly good setting with rude service and treatment, but Elevate Lounge and Takami manage to do it with flying colors. I recently hosted a birthday party at Elevate with dinner at Takami prior to that. The food at Takami is actually very good, but the service could not have been worse. We literally had to call our server over every time we needed her. When we moved over to Elevate Lounge for our scheduled bottle service it only got worse. First, contrary to the club description, we were told that dinner at the restaurant doesn't get you into the club and there is a cover ($20) unless you order bottle service. If you haven't arranged for bottle service don't waste your time - you'll never get in. On top of that, even bottle service doesn't guarantee you entry. I ordered multiple bottles at $350 each to get all of our guests in but some of our guests were turned away by bouncers on power trips even though we were within our allotted spots. You would think that management would help you out but they're useless as the bouncers have full autonomy to do whatever they want. It's definitely the type of place that holds up the line out front to make itself seem crowded and popular. If not for the group we were with it would have been a terrible night out. If you're the type of person that likes going places to say that you've been there - knock yourself out, but if you actually want to have a good time avoid Elevate at all costs!

I went with 6 girls 10/25 for dinner for my b-day celebration at Takami, the food was excellent, the service was mediocre. We inquired about getting into the club Elevate.. the manager John was very gracious, explained the whole situation then walked us over to the club. 6 girls got in no problem. Then the night spiral downwards.
I had other friends who did not join us for dinner instead they were joining for the dancing/partying. My friends got to Elevate around 10pm and waited until 12pm, granted they are 2 guys.. but waiting for 2 hours? The club was only at half capacity yet they wouldn't let people up. They wouldn't let me go downstairs to find them, since if I leave I cannot re-enter the club. Finally my friends had to get bottle service to come up. When they showed up, we were not allowed to sit with them since we didn't get bottle service with them. I had another friend with her boyfriend who waited in line for 1.5 hours and finally just left b/c the line just wasn't moving.
The DJ at the club was playing odd music and doesn't take any requests. A lot of people were just sitting, lounging and looking bored. At one point the music was pretty decent but that only lasted for about 10 minutes.. then the DJ switched to something completely different.
I would not recommend this club to any one, the restaurant yes, not the club. I do not understand what management is trying to achieve - making people wait outside for hours to the point that people were leaving to go elsewhere.. and employing the DJ who plays bad music.
