Great sushi. Went to the one by the Staples center. Had a great time with great service. Pricey, but you get what you paid for.

This place is amazing. We went there more than a year ago and I still crave it. We're headed back to Cali in August and I hope we'll get the chance to eat here again!!!

Although the restaurant is noisy and trendy the food is outstanding. The service could not have been better. We were there with people who knew how to order and that was certainly helpful. Dishes are like nothing we have ever eaten at any Japanese restaurant. They are interesting fusion concept that really works. Every dish is a masterpiece and both... More

Located in Brentwood, nice neighbourhood. Very stylish, trendy and modern decor. There are 2 dining rooms, one large (very nice decor but a bit noisy) and a smaller, also noisy but a bit less. Very friendly staff! Good chic crowd. Excellent Starters, in particular the chicken salad and the brussel sprouts were outstanding! Another excellent dish is the crispy rice... More

We had a great diner at Katsuya. The bartender knows his job and the cocktails are great. Food wise you should try their Brussels sprouts dish, the sashimi and sushi are awesome. Service was impeccable even with the place completely packed.

These was one of the best lunches I had in LA! Dinning at Katsuya was amazing, the food was right on spot, everything was perfect. Sushi rolls were fantastic, and appetizers were just as good. My wife and I enjoyed there very much. I defiantly can say that it is the number one sushi spot in LA. A bit pricey... More

Had a fun dinner with our family of 9 at this popular place. Even with a reservation, it took quite a bit longer to be seated. Good people watching during the wait. Our LA family has spotted numerous stars while dining here. We ordered about a dozen items for our table and everything was fresh and delicious. Loved the Crispy... More

I go to Katsuya about once a month. Fabulous food. Friendly Staff. Some of the time it has been awful loud others not. It depends. I love it though.

I am over 70 years old. I expected to have a nice Japanese atmosphere at Katsuya, because name of restaurant is Japanese name, but so noisy, foods are more for younger people, and our server doesn't have any basic Japanese food knowledge. I saw many people, mostly non-Japanese and younger people, enjoying at Katsuya. Sorry to say but I can't... More

The perfectly prepared recipes of Chef Katsu-ya in Philippe Starck's gorgeous setting make this a must for every Los Angeles visit. It's energetic, so don't expect a quiet dining experience, and make sure to pace your waiter at times by spreading out your orders if you don't want to be rushed through your meal, as this kitchen can be fast...
