Loud space, but great food

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.

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

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.

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
