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...

Interesting decor, although super dark. The favorite dish without doubt the warm kale salad with dried crunchy shiitake mushrooms. Super delicious. However, the thinness of the slices of fish draped over their +$20 specialty rolls bring the ratings way down. Real bummer!

Took advantage of the happy hour (5-7) at the bar which was much better than when we were seated on the patio. The patio is beautiful and has beautiful people, but the rolls we ordered were below average compared to the ones we get here at our favorite sushi place in Atlanta, plus the service was patronizing and lacking.

I went with two friends and since it was such a beautiful southern California evening we chose to sit on the patio. We selected many different items to share and everything was wonderful. Topped off with some blueberry sake and two desserts that were offered on the house and it proved to be one of the best meals ever. Servers... More

I love Katana. I somehow always find my way there when in LA. I love Sushi and Japanese good in general but Katana is an experience not to be missed if you're in a party mood, hungry and want to have a few drinks. Warm night, ever better with outside seating.

Our first real experience of ordering Japanese food from a menu as opposed to choosing sushi from a selection by sight. I explained this to our waitress who very patiently went through the menu section by section and offered suggestions along the way. Great food in a beautiful setting - very enjoyable.

This is right across the street from my normal hotel and I've never had a bad experience. Typically have a bunch of sushi and a noodle bowl. Can be an interesting scene.

Fun place, with great atmosphere. Great for people watching, as well as very good sushi / asian fusion selections. Our waitress was very helpful, and gave us some great choices.
