Featured In

Yamashiro translates to “mountain place” in Japanese, which acts as a literal description of this historic hilltop mansion that was first built in 1914 and meant to be a replica of a palace located in the “Yamashiro” province mountains near Kyoto, Japan. Enjoy expansive, sparkling views of the city as you munch on globally-inspired dishes like Sushi Pizza, Roasted Bone Marrow Bruschetta, and a variety of specialty rolls. Before or after dinner, take a hand-held stroll in their spacious garden courtyard and watch the koi fish swim, some of which are over 60 years old.

No other place in LA can beat the jaw-dropping panoramic views afforded by Yamashiro—an iconic restaurant nestled in the Hollywood Hills which, after a century, is still going strong. Helmed by executive chef Vallerie Archer, who was chosen to lead its culinary program just before the pandemic and is the first female chef in Yamashiro’s history, the menu displays her influence via sustainable seafood and dramatic presentation (think: a stunning array of sushi served in a wooden boat or Wagyu strips grilled tableside on a slab of hot lava rock). If you need to impress dates, in-laws, or out-of-towners, Yamashiro never fails to please, offering both the traditional and modern: straightforward nigiri, specialty rolls (Chef Val has three kinds of fish, along with serrano peppers and truffle aioli), sashimi enhanced with garlic truffle or wasabi ponzu sauces, and fish-topped crispy rice.

Even the winding drive to this hilltop restaurant feels worlds away from Los Angeles. And yes, you’ll be treated to some of the best city views once you make it to the top, but with peaceful gardens, a courtyard with koi ponds, and a 600-year-old Japanese pagoda that holds distinction as being the oldest structure in California, Yamashiro feels like it exists outside of the city as well as our current times. The wide-ranging menu also offers a global experience, with sushi, rice and noodle dishes, mains like Chilean sea bass and NY steak, plus a ishi-yaki cooking stone experience where American Wagyu beef is grilled tableside on a hot lava rock.
