Great decor! Food is good – i'm giving it 4 stars for the experience factor, not b/c i think it's 4 star dining. i love the decor and the vastness of the space, tho some parts are a little disney-fied. i like watching guy make soba noodles downstairs. what a treat! very nice sake list as well. the food is average plus. i'd go for the cooked stuff over the sushi. they spent a lot of money on this place and it's not super popular so i'm not sure how long it will last.

Great atmosphere, food and service. Rare find in LA. – Food and service were great. The Garden was serene and relaxing. The interior made you feel like you were in the restaurant where the filmed the "Klll BILL". We liked it so much we are going back again on Sunday.

Citysearch Editorial Review – More like a dramatic Kurosawa movie set than a restaurant, the first American outpost of this successful Japanese chain spent millions importing 300-year-old wooden houses to transform the long-ago Ed Debevic's space into a luxe izakaya (Japanese small plates) arena. The result is three levels of elegantly rustic dining spaces include garden views, an inner courtyard with sumiyaki bar, balcony perches, plus a sake-tasting room. The huge menu is all about upscale traditional tavern fare. A salad of lotus root and burdock is a springboard to sputnik-like shrimp fritters, or octopus with green olives and taro. The sumiyaki (grilling) bar offers a variety of skewers including Wagyu beef, silky and smoky Japanese eggplant, and tender bacon-wrapped asparagus. Sushi is pricey, but the buckwheat soba noodles--kneaded, rolled and cut by a glass-encased chef--served hot or cold are worth the trip alone.

Paying for Location and Ambience and NOT THE FOOD – We went on a Wednesday night expecting great service & food. The waitress was rude and the food was terrible. We ordered off of their Sample Tasting Menu which consisted of their FAMOUS Skewers and Sushi. Their Sushi was very fishy (only ate 3 pieces) and the skewers were salty. The Soba noodles tasted like any other soba noodles out there. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone and it is not worth going for just the ambience.

Beautiful!! Delicious and elegant! – I love this place. The docor is amazing. The food is exceptional. The best Japanese food in town. I love sitting in the bar. It is right next to this beautiful peaceful little courtyard. I love the spicy tuna on crispy rice.

BEAUTIFUL LOUNGE & BAR – I went in to watch the Laker's Game and was so impressed by the lounge. Open bar overlooking the koi fish pond. Big red comfortable lounge chairs. 2 wide screen flat panel t.v.'s and the happy hour food/drinks were awesome, and inexpensive! Very chic yet comfortable atmosphere.

Do they all think Yoshinoya is standard for Japanese food – What are all these people thinking when they give these ratings. I've traveled to Japan on many occasions, tried suppose best Japanese restaurants all over USA & Europe and Gonpachi is equivalent of of Denny's in Japanese. Sure they have beautiful setting but everything after that it's a miserable failure. I've dine at Gonapchi 4 times last year and swore I would never be back but after reading all these glorious reviews I decided to give them a another shot. I think all these reviews are written by employees of Gonapchi or all these people have no idea what they talking about when it comes to Japanese food. They serve bad quality, bad tasting, badly prepared food in bad presentation. They do not know how to combine flavors or texture to save their lives. I think monkey could do a better job of coming up with menu that makes sense. Service is lacking in care, politeness, timing and attitude. Decor is still nice but their decision to close the upstairs due to lack of business has ruin even the atmosphere. There are many good quality Japanese restaurants with good & service so why would anyone care to go to Gonapchi is a mystery.

Great food – I love gonpachi's food and its ambience. It is just too beautiful to be true. I went there 4 times in 2 months and I will definitely go back. If their servants can be more responsive, i would rate it as a 5 star restaurant.

Go for the 1. Decor (Best experience) 2. Food (cooked TRADITIONAL AUTHENTIC JAPANESE CUISINE) – Beautifil decor, from the zen garden to the bathrooms!! The sink is gorgeous!! To the third level more intimate dining.. I just went last night (Saturday) and I though the place was wonderful! I love that they found a way to mingle a tri-level and equivalent target audience. There is space for families (kid friendly) to have a nice dinner, the bar is perfect for dates or singles, the third level has two private rooms ideal for business and surrounding tables overlooking the second level for dates or friends. The maitre'd came to our table because our friend, a chef from Vegas was there and he explained every dish, told us wonderful background info and introduced all the wonderful waistaff. I truly enjoyed tonight! I wish I remembered all the names of the dishes because I can't wait to go back. Please do try this place if you want to feel transported to Tokyo and enjoy a satisfying meal! Soba noodles are AWESOME!!!!
