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.

Not too fusion, but interesting take on traditional Japanese flavours

The deep fried kale was delicious, just the right blend of crunch and savoury dressing. a couple of classics - crispy softshell crab and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno both done very well. Good assorted sashimi, fine fresh, but not memorable and a nice bit of Wagyu beef.

Asparagus on robata juicy and fat but two pieces cut into 4 doesn't slice it. Whole fish which was on special was amazing. Prepped on robata. Yellowtail and red snapper delish. Loved everything fish came with - seaweed, mushrooms, green onions. Belly was perfect as well - not too overpowering in the fatty department. Wine selection good. Def one of... More

I visited Katsuya Restaurants several times and was always pleased. No waiting time, good seating, excellent food, friendly waiters. A little bit expensive, as most of the japanese restaurants in LA. Service was quick, no hurry what we liked. We will certainly return

How do I describe my experience last night in just a few words...? "Fantastic" would be one. "Delicious" would be another. "Grateful" to have finally gone to a restaurant in Hollywood and felt like the staff (Jesse our waiter in particular) genuinely cared about our experience. The entire staff worked together as a team in what seemed to be an... More

I had an amazing dinner here and can't wait to come back. The rolls were so fresh and creative. Our waiter Luke was spot on with service! Don't miss the Brussels sprouts! Pure crack! Im missing it as I type this!

Excellent menu with Asian dishes. The teriyaki salmon was good with miso soup and salade to start. The juices are original. Loved the mochi balls for dessert especially the mango ones.

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
