Featuring the dynamic pairing of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Philippe Starck, Katsuya by Starck is truly a feast for the senses. With specialty cocktails, unique rolls and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters, Chef Uechi skillfully translates Japanese flavors to the American palate. Signature dishes include Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno and Miso-Marinated Black Cod. With superb talent and exacting precision, Katsuya by Starck is changing the face of Japanese cuisine. Upon its debut, Katsuya Brentwood was named one of Travel + Leisure's "Best New Restaurants," and it continues to garner acclaim as one of OpenTable's "50 Hottest Restaurants in the U.S." and the Los Angeles Times Readers' Choice "Best Sushi Restaurant" in Southern California.

I normally wouldn't like a place like this, but . . .

My wife and I chose the establishment for it's location and menu, well aware that it is pricey and has a reputation for being consciously trendy. We really found none of that.

I met a good friend for lunch. She picked Katsuya because it's one of her favorites. I can certainly see why. We shared the brussel sprouts and one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten, crispy rice with spicy tuna. Incomparable! I had a small piece of salmon and some asparagus and my friend had a small portion of... More

We've been several times -- last Saturday -- not too crowded -- not sure why -- but it was great for us -- our server was attentive and fun -- the food was wonderful. The brussel sprout appetizer was unique and delicious; the Katsuya role light and fresh; the ceviche perfect. My kids LOVED the crunch role. My husband said... More

Let's start with the positives. The service is absolutely phenomenal. Very attentive waiters and bartenders who were eager to please. The ambiance is chill. A big, dimly lit room with a wooden, simplicity-driven decor to go with the Japanese theme. Really underwhelming and plain. The food was decidedly mediocre and expensive. Though we did drink alcohol, a price tab of... More

We had dinner here on Valentine's Day, and really enjoyed it. Our booth insulated us a bit from the loud music, which otherwise would have made conversation difficult. The food is excellent, and the "beautiful people" scene is very LA. Nice sake selection.

Took my family to Katsuya Sat.night. As always it gets very crowded. We asked for & were seated in the front room which I like better. While I have been here a lot it's been awhile. Our server was Kirby who without question was spot on with every suggestion. We have our regular favorites but there are a few new... More

My wife and I and our extended family recent had dinner at Katsuya. We have eaten here a couple of times before. One of the reasons we enjoy this restaurant is that they have enough vegan options to hold our attention and our palate. They have vegan sushi options in addition to roasted vege options. They even offer a beautiful... More

I have been here many times and have enjoyed the food. Last night I couldn't wait to leave. The food was mediocre. The service was terrible and listening to the staff talk about the customers is outrageous. They forget that the reason that they make money is because of the patrons. I know so can be overwhelming but no reason... More

I came here expecting a lot more than I actually received. The hostess was rude, the service was mediocre and it took way too long to receive our food. The food was not what it used to be either. Too bad, I really used to like this place.
