My friend and I absolutely loved Katana. It was conveniently located right across from my hotel, Mondrian, and the food/drinks were absolutely delicious. Our waiter was extremely attentive and helpful in explaining the menu and suggesting some things to try and the ambiance was beautiful. I would definitely go back on my next trip to LA.

The food at Katana was absolutely amazing! We order several different items from the Robata menu and each was better than the last! We didn't see any "stars" while we were there but honestly, we were so distracted by the great food we might have missed some!

I think the menu was a little overpriced considering the portions, but the food was incredible with amazing sushi. The service as well was very elegant and professional. I would go back if it was just a couple, just a little expensive for an entire family.

Beautiful crowd, very attentive service, the food is out of this world! Pretty much everything we ate was completely delicious, and we ordered over ten different items. Highly recommended!!!

We love all grilled skewer in this restaurant. This is not a simple grilled Japanese but it combination with other western ingredients such as lobster, foie gras, or cheese!!! That make more interesting and great taste. Sashimi (especially Hamachi) and sushi were also fresh and also good taste. Try Sake (Dassai 23, the best sake I ever had) to complete... More

The restaurant is conveniently located if you stay in the west Hollywood area. For us was just across the street. The service was excellent, wine and water were always in the glass. The food is fantastic. The sushi was great, very tasty. I would definitely recommend the lobster. This is a definitely a place to try!

We were staying in The Mondrian which is opposite and from our 10th floor room we could see this most beautiful outdoor terrace raised up some grand stairs above street level. We did some enquiries and discovered it was Katana. It was also then recommended by our concierge and it did not disappoint. If you go make sure you get... More

The food was great and the serviced matched it. We ordered a mixture of sushi and hot plates. I ordered Chicken Cartilage as a side dish I hardly see this on menus..I was happy to find it here. The GM Eiji came over to say hi which was very nice of him and gave us his card so when we're... More
