The sushi here is fantastic! The service is great- providing recommendations throughout the meal. The drinks were tasty- I loved the cucumber martinis!

We were recommended this restaurant by a local shopkeeper so we thought we would give it a try. We booked for 8.30pm and arrived on time but our table was not ready. We were ushered to the bar and had to wait 25 minutes before our table was ready. The best thing about the night was the very friendly barman... More

the food is good; sushi and sashimi is fresh; the best is the black cod and spicy salmon on crispy rice. Wait staff very nice. It's best to go when they are not too busy because then service is not as good; but the times we've gone it's been very good service. Prices are high but its worth it though... More

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
