The wait staffvis most helpful when ordering all courses. They have one great specialty drinks to choose from. I always like sharing so you can try a little bit of each. Very cool interior design.

The Katsuya in Hollywood is a place where any sushi lover should go to. The food is amazing, the drinks are delicious and the service is superb!! My husband and I went there on a Thursday night to celebrate our anniversary two weeks ago. Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by the hostess who made sure we sat down promptly... More

This place is all hype, and high prices. Sushi was just average. Fish was fresh but not innovative. Snotty hostesses, good servers, over zealous bus boys will clear your plates too fast. So watch them. Would not recommend or return. Ps I am a sushi snob, but it's because I have amazing sushi 3x per week at home.

Katsuya was recommended by the W Concierge. Sushi was good. Make sure to try the baked apple dessert, that was incredible.

We were seated right away and sat in the main part of the restaurant. The waiter made suggestions as to what to order. The food was amazing and nice size portions.

Stopped in here for dinner while I was in town for a conference. No game playing this evening, so the place was pretty quiet. I went with the panko crusted chicken wrapped in stir fry vegetables. The dish actually came out looking like sushi rolls, which was unexpected, but neat. The dish was quite good, but portion size was on... More

This place has earned my respect. I've had sushi all over the world and although I cannot say this is the best I've ever had I can unequivocally say they make extraordinary food. The rock shrimp is among my favorite. Although it's not sushi. Their cuts of salmon, yellow tail, halibut are pretty fresh and have a nice buttery sweet... More

We were sent to Katsuya before seeing a show at The Pantages. Excited for fresh, west coast sushi, we were extremely disappointed. The quality of the food was just ok, and for all of the hype it should have been outstanding. The restaurant was not even half full when we arrived, and they had us "wait for our table" in... More

Absolutely amazing food, service and loved watching the creative sushi makers make up the meals at the bar area. We ordered the Spider Roll with Soft... More
