After going to the Japan exhibit at Hollywood & Highland, we had a special Birthday dinner here.
Only Prix Fix menu, omakase style, but several price point options.

The smallest was 10 pieces of sushi which is still too much for me, but delicious.
We paired each course (5) with sake- also awesome!

This restaurant is only here until 12/31!

Had such a great evening. Dining at INN ANN is an experience. Sushi is amazing, but the dishes that lead up to your sushi course are also very well thought out and somewhat whimsical. The chef uses local seasonal ingredients but present them using Japanese techniques. Loved them all.

Not worth the money. We ordered sushi dinner and a few a la carte, and unfortunately nothing was memorable or tasty from start to finish. The worst dish was Dobin Mushi (soup). House made tofu was the best but honestly I can make a better one with soy milk from Meiji Tofu. It took almost 3 hours to serve a 5 course dinner. I'm glad it was not a business dinner with important clients.

A culinary retreat from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Blvd. Everything here - the decor, the chef-designed ceramic dishware, and the exceptional service - transports you to the dreamscape of the chef's singular epicurian vision.

The best experience and above all the best and most flavorful sushi and food even for vegetarians. Totally worth every penny. If you have a date take them there ;)

An incredible hidden gem on Hollywood Boulevard. Chef Mori brings his high level to every dish. We had the 9-course anniversary dinner and at $75 each it was a steal!

The food, especially the sushi, is both beautiful and delicious. It's a relaxing experience. The only thing that detracts is the strange location

Amazing and very genuine Japanese food with a tiny twist. We were surprised about the big amount of food we received for the Biwa menu. Unusual for Japanese fine dining but very welcome.
The atmosphere at the start was a bit noisy as there was a big Japanese group on the other table but it calmed down afterwards.

とくに秋の季節に合わせた、松茸と土瓶蒸しをLAで
食べれるとは思いませんでした。

メインのお寿司も、コハダなどの繊細な寿司も
大変美味しかったです。
欲張って15貫を注文したのは、多すぎました。

A bit of a mixed review. Location is great, rooftop view of Hollywood. Very limited menu so no "a la carte", only tasting courses. Food was good but VERY $$$$. And for what they charge, it should have been a life changing experience and it was not. Chef is talented and food presentation was great and you will try new tastes but it wasn't all the best. Our waiter was very good and super pro. I think his name is Charles. A dinner for 2 with a bottle of sake ended up at $500... So, overall good, but not definitely not $500 good.

We enjoyed our dinner. It's pricey for sure. I had the 12-piece sushi dinner ($120) and my husband had the Wagyu beef ($200). I thought the sushi was alright ... the Wagyu beef was much better, in quality, taste and quantity. The presentation of the food was impeccable. The service was attentive and just right in our opinion. We will come back for special occasions of course.

If you enjoy a Japanese kaiseki experience, then Inn Ann is an awesome place for you. Sit back an allow the masterful staff take you on a culinary journey.

If you are not prepared to have a curated meal, then it might be better to do your homework before going.

Not an inexpensive meal ($350 for the pair of us, which included one cocktail and one beer). But I would suggest that the total experience is one that is well worth it.

When we arrived the restaurant was pretty much empty and pretty gloomy. The personal was extremely courteous, borderline obsequious. We were explained that the menu was different from what is online. Ok. We were offered a few choices the cheapest one being $100. We were explained that there were many many courses in order to taste everything.
I had to put my foot down half way, as I could not eat anymore and they looked so sorry 😐. I have never been in a restaurant like this before, and been so amazingly courteously pressured to EAT. I terms of taste, neither my husband nor I were particularly impressed. This is a place for people who have a big appetite and are ready to pay to ... follow directions.

Great service as the staff were very accomodating.
However the sushi we're not very fresh and you can tell that the texture is not firm, and have been sitting at the counter for a long time. Did not expect this for the price they were charging

Beautiful, elegant ambience. Very friendly and attentive service. Excellent food especially the vegetable bowl and tempura which was superb! Just like in Kyoto. The fact that Sandra, the manager, was so helpful in customizing a menu to accommodate my dietary restrictions makes the dining experience very enjoyable.

Beautiful meal and surprise setting. Don’t let the Hollywood and Highland energy trick you into thinking it’s going to be crazy or loud. It’s quiet, sophisticated and fun. We had the omakase with pairing and it was worth every dollar and minute. We were there 2 1/2 hours, never rushed out. We were treated so well. And the food was beautifully presented and delicious. I was so full when I left and I couldn’t stop thinking about our multi-course meal all weekend. Nothing was amiss. I can’t wait to go again!

Amazing place that feels like you are in Japan, despite being in the center of the most tourist part in LA. We ordered omakase with wine/sake pairing. Omakase is not just sushi and seafood as we were treated to a wide variety of dishes, ranging from seasonal vegetables, tempura, grilled seafood and meat and of course sushi! Allow 2.5 hours at least if you do!

We tried this place on the recommendation of a colleague and had no idea this would turn out to be the best Japanese dining experience we've had in a lifetime.
Our experience here was nothing short of stellar.
The food, service, seating and view were all impeccable.
Definitely a go again as often as I can.
The ambiance is perfect for quiet dinner conversation, a welcome change from the noisy design of too many places these days.
I know an awesome dining experience when I am lucky enough to have one and this was it!

Although the service and ambience were excellent, ultimately dining out is about the food.

All the dishes prior and following the sushi were excellent and thoughtful. There were unique, creative and beautiful presentations. Perhaps this made the sushi that followed that much more disappointing.

There was nothing exceptional about any of the sushi pieces. They were mediocre both in taste and presentation.

I would have preferred sashimi but the chef didn't even have hamachi (yellowtail), a fish commonly available.

The value of the meal fell short because the sushi was so poorly done.

Beyond amazing. Chef Mori and staff are so gracious and kind. The food is beyond outstanding. Each piece is a better experience than the last and the very first one was mind blowing. And the ceramics. I’ll be honest I came for the ceramics knowing I was going to have a beyond amazing experience and be served amazing food that would exceed my expectations yet I was still blown away.

Was very disappointed with the entire experience. Was so excited when I discovered Inn Ann. The photos and menu looked amazing. I booked the reservation through open table which showed their menu. Unfortunately the menu they have listed is severely under what the menu was the night we dined. Even though the prices were more than expected we opted for the Bima omakase which we were told was $200 but could be modified so it would be less- we opted out of the tempura dish and desert. Big mistake. We thought we were ordering a menu that focused on sushi and sashimi. That was a part of it but most of the fish in the courses was Japanese sardine (delicious but I don’t need 3 courses of it), clam, and uni. I love uni and it was delicious but again, 3 courses of it. My poor boyfriend absolutely hates uni and had to suffer through it. I believe the only other fish we got was one tuna course I they only had one piece which the chef gave to my bf. The quality was excellent but I wish it was more variety. The couple next to us got the 15 piece sushi and they got such a better variety. I am jealous of what they ate.

So our bill comes and they charged us $300 EACH!!! When we asked them about it they said the menu starts at $200- at NO point during the dinner did they say, now you’ve reached the $200 mark, would you like to continue? Luckily after we explained our confusion at the price they honored the $200 price. Still walked out of there paying well over $650 for a meal we were super disappointed in. I don’t mind paying for a great meal and experience but this was not worth it at all.

While the food and service at Inn Ann were excellent, I unfortunately dined there on a night when there was another party with two young boys who were noisy, crawled under the table, and ran through the restaurant. The kids' parents made little effort to get the boys settled, and the experience put a damper on what might have been a wonderful evening.

INN ANN at Japan House is LA's best kept secrect! My husband I had one of the best meals out in long time in LA. INN ANN was the perfect combination of food, service and customer care. Tucked away in a corner on the 5th floor of the complex at Highland and Hollywood, one is immediately de-stressed by entering the quiet perfectly designed dinning space. The sushi was absolutely amazing...uber fresh, creative, delicious and Chef Mori Onodera's secret sushi rice unparelled. The personal touches, such as the use of plates made/designed by the chef and serving of sparkling sake from his hometown in Japan hightened the specialness of the meal.

INN ANN...Absolutely outstanding in all categories.
