A fantastic menu with many tempting options of super fresh Japanese dishes. Hard to choose a favourite but this sushi , sashimi and the hand rolls are fantastic. Great service, and an in house DJ that sets a good vibe in the entire place. Very reasonably priced too. An amazing building with great creative decor.

Really enjoyed this restaurant, excellent Japanese cuisine, and a good mix of drinks, especially the Saki specials. The banzai bunny was my favorite. Nice relaxing vibe and not pretentious at all. Worth adding to the list if you are spending time in West Hollywood.

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.
