Sushi at it's best! Katana, very nice style, excellent sushi and gorgeous Kobe steak bites! Try the fusion between japanese sushi and steak. Perfect for couples or smaller groups. Reservation needed, try a consierge service for reservation if blocked.

The ambiance is awesome and outdoor seating is perfect for a large group. The service was great too. The Ginger Lychee Mojito is one of the best I've had and highly recommend trying it. The Crunchy Tuna, Spicy Tuna, Katana, Ebi Jalapeno, and Lobster rolls are great. Wasn't a huge fan of the Crab Dynamite. It was very sweet.

One of the best places I have had sushi! The place is great. Food is delicious and a fun place to gather before hitting town. I like Nobu too but i find katana better overall from taste, variety and atmosphere. Service can be better.

Oh man! They have the Wygu beef that is so tender it practically melts in your mouth. This stuff sells for over $100/pound. We had the Lobster with truffle sauce from the kitchen which was delicious. And the steak-wrapped asparagus spears were amazing. Expect to pay at least $100/person here. Sit at the robata grill and have a few of... More

Let's start with the disclaimers: I live in Tokyo, and am a food fanatic. A more normal person might have given Katana four-stars. That said, the entrance to the place is stunning. So is the outdoor dining with live disc jockey. Inside the bar and dining area are rather cramped and unimpressive, particularly in comparison with both the facade and... More

Friends of ours recommended Katana to us and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. While the menu is huge, our fabulous server was able to navigate us through it and we ended up with an exciting variety of small plates. The seafood was incredibly fresh and beautifully presented. We will be coming back here on our next trip.

My husband and I had an excellent meal at Katana - we both sampled Katana’s “Izakaya” Feast option which was reasonably priced at just under $60 a person and offered a variety of items included rolls, grilled meats etc. The spicy tuna crispy rice might as well have been heaven in my mouth and if we weren't so full after...
