Never had a bad meal at this Katsuya. The sashimi sampler plate is a great value at $35, and the creamy rock shrimp, tuna in Japanese salsa, and crab mozzarella are go-to orders. Robata veggies are a good value as well (bacon wrapped tomatoes, zucchini, and shitake mushrooms are all excellent). Unlike the Hollywood Blvd location this restaurant only have... More

The staff were great. The sushi really hit the spot. Their specialities are worth a try and the cocktails 'hot the spot!' Staff were attentive and we had a really great evening

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. The food was wonderful, the service outstanding, and the prices (for what we ordered) fair. It is crowded, dark, and loud, but we were accommodated quickly and served... More

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.
