Haven't been here since my last trip to LA last August. The sushi couldn't be better and sitting outside on a beautiful night made it even better! Don't miss going here.

Trendy and relaxed. Busy on a Monday which is rare. Great, tasty food and attentive Beer vice but not over bearing. Very reasonable too. Definitely recommend, especially of you can get a patio seat which has top views of LA.

Great restaurant. Really nice surroundings inside, you sit very private with your group. Skip the very advanced drinks, go for the ones on the drink menu. Food is excellent, defiantly at least try one or two of the Robata grills. We where five and ate a lot of different things of the menu, everything was top notch. Very nice staff... More

I love Katana. Its been around for a minute, however, I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The Robata grill is excellent. I am not a sushi person, but my friends swear by it. The location is nice in West Hollywood and if you are into it, you will always spot some celebrities having dinner here. I... More

We really enjoyed this resturant, the drinks we had before getting our table outside was not so good, but that was all forgotten when we took the first bite of food. We had a sample meny of their best sellers, USD 58.00 pr person. The banana dessert was mediocre, but the super friendly and down to earth staff made up... More

Great restaurant! The food was delicious, the ambiance was fun & unique, and the waitstaff was very friendly. We had reservations for 9pm but got to the restaurant very early but the hostess was nice enough to seat us at a great table on the patio.

I may be a traditionalist, but I like my Japanese food the way the Japanese intended it to be vs. how Americans think it should be served. The restaurant came highly recommended, but I was nonplussed with the overall experience. Very expensive for what it was. I can do better at my local Japanese venues at a portion of the... More

Arriving from NYC on a late flight, we were looking for a quick and light bite to eat. Having reserved at Katana, we alighted from our car to much more than a restaurant. Set above the street, our teenage "short wearing" sons and my husband and I were greeted by 3 bouncers at the bottom of the steps leading up... More
