Message from the Business

Sushi, stars and a crackling firepit set the mood at this romantic hideaway on Sawtelle.
The Japanese art of sushi has been refined for many years to bring the finest experience to your palate. At Bar HAYAMA, our highly trained chefs take pride in crafting unique culinary experiences in the traditional style with contemporary variations. Koraza is a style of eating, literally translated as small plates. At Bar HAYAMA, Kozara are given their own special presentation, are served until late in the evening and go perfectly with a bottle of Sake! We also have weekly specials that change seasonally. Choose to dine at our sushi or sake bar, or around our outdoor firepit for an amazing experience. Please contact us for information about private functions & parties at Bar HAYAMA.

I made a reservation, but we had to wait for our table. Our server couldn't explain the sake that we should order with our entrees, I thought this place specialized in sake and the owner is an expert. When I asked if... (more)

Read about this in LA Mag "Best New Restaurants", so decided to check it out on a Sat night. Got a reservation no problem, showed up, and we were seated inside (the outdoor fire pit/sake bar is cool, but it was fully... (more)

Can't really complain too much about this spot except to say that it was just sorta bleh -- i was expecting to be dazzled and was left in want of something more. Yes, the outside firepit is a great place to sit and the menu... (more)
