Taking purity and simplicity as its manifesto, Q provides an unsurpassed omakase dining experience. Q features Chef Hiroyuki Naruke's expression of Edomae cuisine, a historical preparation dating to the Edo-period of Japan that was the first to combine raw sashimi-style fish with vinegar-seasoned rice. Q offers a refined and intimate opportunity for guests to savor and celebrate uncompromised Tokyo-style sushi here in Los Angeles. Our 26-seat dining room matches the care, creativity, and craft of Chef Hiro's cuisine, melding Japanese tradition and striking modernity. Lighting sets the scene, featuring hundreds of glowing orbs that converge above the sushi bar and direct focus to Chef Hiro and his culinary artworks. From the undulating ceiling to the bar itself, the dining space reflects the deep Japanese appreciation for wood in its relaxing natural form. Furnishings include contemporary interpretations of Japanese Zaisu chairs, and tables that feature centuries-old joinery technique

Five0Four Hollywood is dedicated to importing the look, the feel, the food, the drinks, and the hospitality from the French Quarter to the heart of Hollywood. Our food menu blends the complex flavors of New Orleans with the farm-to-table freshness that Southern California is known for. Five0Four is a better version of your favorite corner bar, one where FOOD is elevated, MOONSHINE and other sprits are highlighted, and LIFE is celebrated.

"Very good steak, but for a chain it was pretty expensive. Corkage of $20 is intrinsically too high, but fair compared to other places in the area."
