The endless sushi wasn't worth $30 there were very few choices in sushi options. The few that were offered were not good. Wouldn't go back and wouldn't reccomend it to anyone.

Everything was incredible and our server was very attentive and great. Only thing is that depending on your position, it may be difficult to get what you want because all of the good stuff may have already gone by the time it gets to you. The server made up for this however, being extremely accommodating to our requests.

The quality of the sashimi was decent. The menu selection is very limited and the sashimi slices were very thin. Our waiter was not attentive, and we were seated right next to the kitchen service door which made for a louder experience. The restaurant was not crowded, so I am unclear as to why this particular seat was offered when the other booths were empty.

Made reservations in advanced yet was still placed in front of the kitchen door where all the servers would come chat and have meetings.

Food was terrible!

The view is the only thing which was ruined by the the constant noise from the kitchen

A 69-floor Sora Sushi restaurant at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown offers a great Omakase with very fresh fishes, elegant presentations and unique and different plating designed by Sous Chef Jessica personally on every dish. Frank Seridat supervises the Sora with his many years' culinary experience. I went to many Japanese Sushi restaurants, including downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) and never see a verify of plating for each dish. Sora is a good addition to the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. Sitting at a booth with quiet atmosphere, you can have a spectacular view of Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA), while enjoying both dinner, view and conversation.

An all you can eat lunch buffet at $25 is no brainer.

Food and service was incredible
However watching kitchen staff in the open sneakily texting and eating with their hands while working was disgusting and disrespectful to my self and my guest

Love coming here, but I wish there would be more of a diverse selection to choose from on the conveyor belt. The inari are great, but quality sometimes lacks on the cut rolls.

The price of sushi was way too expensive. Qualify was good but small portion. There is a sushi buffet that you can take from convention belt that keeps moving, but the selection was really limited, mostly inexpensive rolled sushi, no nigiri. Very expensive place. View was nice.

We arrived at 5.50 and left at 7.30. Our waiter only came to our table once and that was when we sat down. He never came back to see if we wanted drinks, water, something of the menu (NOTHING). There was only 8 people in the restaurant and four was his. Yet he stood and talked to the staff but couldn't come to a customer once. Beyond bad service, BEYOND.

For a restaurant of an Intercontinental Hotel's, my expectation was perhaps too high. The service and the view was great. However the quality of food was average at best.

We ate at the high top seats with the conveyor belt sushi. All you can eat for $45. The sushi was average nothing amazing. Not a ton of options. The view was the best part. Our waitress was very nice and they did give us a lovely dessert tray for our anniversary (on the house)

The view is great and the sushi is great and definitely well worth the all you can eat price. The cost of the soda is outrageous at 6 dollars with no refills but hey you get hot tea with the AYCE so it's all good.

Had their $30 lunch. All you can eat on a conveyer belt system. Fun! Very bite size portions. Rating from average to good. Nothing exceptional, but it is all you can eat. Fair value. What you go for, is to experience the Views! Wow! They offered only one sweet, raspberry crumble. Not traditional, but good. Repetitious after a while, but couple next to me, made it a cool experience! I’d I’d say a place you’d take your out of town guest.

Le we had a small toddler in our group and Le & the chefs made sure she was accommodated as well as the rest. My little one was so happy she hugged every staff member she could on our way out. The food was good but more options would set this place at the top of every other sushi place that offers all you can eat.

Our server was cheery and pleasant. However, the food was a dissapointment for what they were charging. The sushi belt didn't have much variety so we opted to order a la carte. Nothing special. You pay for the incredible view and ambiance; not the food.

I had put in a special request to prepare a separate birthday pastry via open table. Not sure if the maitre d' relayed the request to the server. Also, we ordered Plan A and Plan B. It states it includes matcha ice cream. We never got ice cream either.

The best view someone can ask for in Los Angeles. The restaurant was not crowded and we got sorted right away. We choose to order from menu vs sushi bar and the selection was great. My friend got the bento box which I think was the best value. I got a roll for $18 and it was average. Great service and attention from the waiters. If I go back I will get the bento box. We visited during lunch hours .
