Great view and friendly service, but the food was just a little above average, plus the kitchen did not seem coordinated with the room.

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 .

The special all u can eat sushi is not worth a dime since the selection is very limited to a point where you can’t get anything. You only paid for the view. It’s not all u can eat at all since there’s nothing u can get. Their upper management made such a dump marketing decision. I rather expect to pay more to get better sushi and view at the same time. I am walking into a high end hotel and expected high end food and service. If the management afraid to lose money, then don’t offer such deal. If u willing to offer such deals, I better provide the same high end services and food as the brand of ‘intercontinental’!!

We made a reservation for 4 people at 6:00 expecting to be sat for the endless sushi in the main dining room, but instead were seated in some random space away from the main dining room and told that there was no space available in the main room for endless sushi. Hostess was no help telling us we should’ve specifically asked for endless sushi when we made our reservation but nowhere did it ask that. WTF did I make a reservation for? We were finally seated at 6:50 and no apologies were made. Food was scarce on the belt- you’re paying to eat rice with a view.

* Not enough sushi selections but too many appetizers instead.
* Portion of rice was bigger than usual dinner sushis at other places.
* Fantastic scenic view.
* Dining chairs were not comfortable.
* Slow but courteous staffs.

My wife and I sat at a table for two next to the window and ordered from the menu. The floorplan of that side of the restaurant is a narrow hallway with tables along the window side, so there are no other tables next to you, and it feels very private and quiet. Service was excellent, with recommendations on dishes. The bill was reasonable ($99) for three plates of sushi, a dessert, and two glasses of very good wine. The star of the show at Sora is the view of LA from the 69th floor windows. I would highly recommend.

The All you can eat sushi was good. I just wish they would have ask us if we have any request on the kind of sushi that we want more that's included in the All u can eat. It seems like they hardly put the Tuna sashimi and the other kind of fish that they make. We went on lunch time so it wasn't that busy so I believe the chef should've communicated with us like other chefs that we encounter at other sushi places. The Avocados were fresh and the also the Salmon and Tuna. Desserts are just ok there was only 2 kinds. The view was amazing!

Arrived at 2pm with reservations on a Monday afternoon.

The intercontinental is absolutely stunning with magnificent views of Los Angeles. Took my breathe away!

Sora is a beautiful restaurant and the food was delicious. However, our server was a little off. She couldn’t remember as well and continued to make silly mistakes. Given the atmosphere I would think they’d have better service. In addition, she kept sharing that mostly everything on the menu was out. The food that was presented was again, absolutely delicious!

We had two types of sushi, a poke bowl and three types of special rolls. In addition, three types of cocktails to see how it complemented the food.

All in all it was just a good experience!

I'd characterize the dining experience as "underwhelming" and "overrated" for the following few reasons. 1) the sushi just isn't good. The price point that Sora commands, I was expecting Sugar Fish level food. However, I genuinely thought I could get better sushi from Whole Foods, 2) the view is not as good as they make it seem. The way windows and the lighting are set up prevent you from seeing the view of the LA once sunsets. All you will see is your own reflection - a show stopper for any restaurant on the 69th floor. With that said, I'd definitely not come back to Sora ever again and I'd actively advise others to stay away. Just walk over to Sugar Fish in downtown for quality sushi and come on back to the Spire for the view - it'll be a better experience that way :)

Overall I'm satisfied. Half of my food was served about an hour of having ordered which was a bummer had to take home but sushi was incredibly delicious. Desert (Sora Cloud) was extraordinary, the mochis need some improvement. Prices are very reasonable. Views and ambience was amazing. I highly recommend this place for date night. Had an amazing time.

This not a place to celebrate with a large party or any party over 2. They have nice two person booths for date night but any party greater than that has to eat at high top seating with no view. Kind of defeats the purpose of eating on the 69th floor :-)

Sora is absolutely one of my favorite sushi places to visit in Downtown Los Angeles. A big thank you to their staff who surprised our group with a dessert since we were celebrating a special occasion. You can't beat the all you can eat sushi lunch or the views.
