Confused about Japanese grilling places... not Benihana

I'm a fan of sushi, but really love the Japanese eateries that offer little grilled skewered items. Things like:

- chicken skin
- livers on a skewer
- mushrooms
- asparagus wrapped with bacon
- etc

These places first seem like sushi bars, but instead have the main chef tending to a long BBQ where he/she tends to the little sticks of fun.

I'm not sure what to call these places. Yakitori seems to mean "chicken." It's not teppanyaki. Two places I loved where eateries I was taken to so I don't know the adress. One was on Santa Monica near Bundy. The other was in the 3-story little plaza building next to little Tokyo. I'll work on the names, but in the meantime can you tell me the style?

Thanks...
