This was our 3rd visit to Shojin and I want to keep coming back. The service is always friendly and attentive. The food is beautifully presented and tastes even better than it looks. This last visit was to celebrate my son's birthday. He is 11 and loves the sushi and gluten free pasta. My favorite dish is the crispy rice crackers with a spicy topping and Avocado. The decor is so whimsical and relaxing. There are such beautiful touches that make their guests very comfortable... from the baskets under the chairs to hold personal belongings to the bathrooms stocked with toiletries. To top off the night they take a photo of the table and give it to you as you leave. The menu items are a bit pricey but we'll worth it. I will keep returning to this gem!

World renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa's first restaurant opened in 1987 in sunny Beverly Hills. Matsuhisa Beverly Hills is the flagship restaurant to all Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants worldwide.
Based on the fact that it was very difficult to get a table there, and it was so recommended by many people, we have assumed the quality was superb and had high expectations. Big mistake!!!The server was very nice and attentive but the quality was totally standard nothing special, I would even say below standard, the physical of the restaurant was poor and dirtyDefinitely not a place to recommend, there are tons of other places with lesser name but much higher qualityAvoid surprises

Unassuming location and decor. For the price, I was expecting much more attention on the appearance of the restaurant but, I get it, this is about the sushi.This was my first omakase sushi experience... Actually it was more of a culinary adventure... A great bottle of sake and the freshest and most amazing sushi I have ever tasted.Attentive, friendly staff.Expensive.

Super-busy spot, with convenient parking in attached structure. It can get noisy, if that's a concern. You can order off the (standard "check off items on a paper list") sushi menu, along with additional (tapas-style, if that helps to describe) hot bites and cold bites. This combination of offerings is especially helpful for those who aren't wanting only sushi. My dining partner raved about the salmon sushi, in particular. We both really loved the beet salad with goat cheese; so fresh and flavorful! I enjoyed the crabcakes very much. The New Zealand mussels were tasty, yet had a unique, pungent layer of a hot creamy I-don't-know-what! I liked it, but it could be too much and too strong for the unadventurous. (Don't be like me - ask the server what that mussel topping is!)Service was fast and evenly paced in the serving of dishes, particularly for such a packed house. The only reason for four stars and not five - some servers seemed genuinely interested in our needs; others came across as having zero personality. No server was rude, but the unevenness of the attitudes was obvious. In fact, the busboy was, by far, the most polite, efficient and polished employee we encountered - he'd do very well if promoted to server! In sum: high-quality food, fast service, uneven training of server attitudes. Management could easily observe which servers (and busboys!) outshine the others, and replace those who seem pained to be there. Don't rest on your laurels as being a currently popular spot; strive to improve each of your servers' approach.

had delicious tonkatsu ramen! loved that they also have a vegan version. My only issue was having to order by ipad outside before you come in. It was fine for us but very confusing for our older parents, whom were with us. Otherwise, very delicious, quick and attentive servers.

As so many have noted, the food is both exquisite in taste and presentation. Several of the courses ranked among the best I have ever had. We also were very fortunate in that our dinner partners procured our reservation on the first try! I felt that the sake pairings weren't worth the price. They did not seem to accent the dishes the way a good wine pairing can -- though to be fair, I am not all that familiar with sake so perhaps it is my lack of experience. I also felt that the sitting should either be about a half hour longer or two dishes shorter -- we felt a bit rushed at the end.But in the end, the ambiance, service, food and presentation far outweighed the minor complaints and the experience was very much worth it.
