I went to this restaurant because it was recommended by my hotel. The place (especially the terrace) is beautiful although a little loud and our waiter was very friendly and correct. Unfortunately the food was not good. Some dishes arrived cold and others just lacked flavor. The asparagus we ordered came without the heads, which is the best part! Our... More

This is a really cool restaurant...great food and atmosphere! We made a reservation about an hour and a half beforehand. When we arrived, it was like we were getting into a club as there was a bouncer that asked us if we had a reservation. When we were allowed in, the hostess staff told us that our table wasn't ready... More

I didn't read any reviews about this restaurant before I tried it, so no special expectations. It looked quite "exclusive" as we arrived, trendy to say the least- anywhere when you need the torch on your iPhone to read the menu often qualifies, but when my order arrived I wasn't too impressed by the taste. I had the Shiro Maguro... More

Katana is one of the best Japanese places I've been to! Everything is very fresh and the dishes are authentic. The atmosphere is very sexy Hollywood and the crowd is beautiful..great for people watching! Also a great date spot..highly recommend making reservations in advance - request outdoors if possible..highly coveted! You can't go wrong with anything from the robata grill... More

The location was very good for us since it was close to our hotel. It didn't feel like a typical "family with kids" restaurant but the staff were very friendly with the kids and did everything to make them happy as well in terms of creating specific dishes that would work. Very open minded in that way which is very... More

Fantastic Japanese food however expect to spend around $200 if you want to be satisfied and not hungry when you leave

Very trendy Japanese restaurant on Sunset and opposite the Mondrian. The food was awesome, service was pretty good but can get very busy and a little hectic. The later the hour the busier it gets so get in early if you are with family. Otherwise leave it a bit later, you never know who you will see at this place.

The rolls were great, Japanese wagyu beef, king crab from the robabta, just an all-around great experience I highly recommend it.... The sake premium samplers were over-the-top. The service was excellent
