I'd heard a lot about this place and decided to give it a go. It was a Friday night around 6:30pm and I was surprised to get a seat since it apparently gets very busy later in the evening. Once you walk in, you will be greeted by 2-3 attractive women (usually in black cocktail dresses and fully done up)... More

We turned Katsuya into our daily bar before heading out to dinner. The barman was knowledgable about local restaurants and offered valuable advice on where to go and what to have when we got there. The bar is open from 5pm and serves good snacks. It gets busy quickly so get in early. The main restaurant food is good -... More

I had a dinner here with my colleagues and this place is just perfect. Amazing food, sushi and deserts. I cannot wait to have a sushi like this again. It is a must try. Reservations highly recommended.

I screwed up a reservation on Valentine's Day and ended up needing to eat before a show at the Pantages. We walked up to Katsuya on a very busy holiday evening with the restaurant packed. We explained our dilemma and the hostess managed to get us two seats at the sushi bar. The quality of the sushi was excellent. It... More

We ate at Katsuya looking for some good Japanese food will vacationing in LA. The food was very good but the portions were small for the price paid. However might be willing to overlook that if I could say that eating here was pleasant experience. We were seated in a very busy area right up next to where the chefs... More

My wife and I flew in from Cayman Islands and stayed at the W around the corner. We had the tasting menu with all the chef's favourites. We found it underwhelming and average especially considering the prices. Give it a miss, you can find better Sushi at the Farmer's Market at the Grove.

The food were great but the sushi was average. For a restaurant that expensive and that fancy, I expected more. The service was nice, the waiters were friendly. The atmosphere was amazing but wasn't any different than a classic Japanese restaurant. I wouldn't say 'definitely go', I wouldn't say 'don't go'. If you like Japanese food, you can give it... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. It's atmosphere is probably the most progressive I've seen, but our server was cordial and attentive and our food was incredible. The sushi is amazing - sampling all of their sushi options could be an entire meal in and of itself. We did however order two main course dishes to... More

Don't believe any good ratings.I have been eating sushi and sashimi for 60 years and my advise do not go. All show and very poor quality fish and rice . The crispy soft shell crab were just saturated with cooking oil. The drinks were very skimpy. Miso soup was excellent.
