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.

Went here with a number of work colleagues for dinner. We ended up ordering a tremendous amount and variety of food (fish, sushi, various meat, vegetables, etc.). The scene was certainly cool and I enjoyed sitting out on the patio. The food ranged from average to very good for some dishes, although on the whole, I thought it was OK.... More

My friends and I have been dining on Katana's patio since they opened over a decade ago. It's still a "scene" to be seen but with many great dishes complimenting the amazing eye candy. We always dine on the patio and bring our own wines-- usually a mixture of bubblies, Alsatian and German Rieslings, Chardonnay based mostly white burgs, and... More

When you think Japanese - you might think sushi to tempura, but this trendy West Hollywood eatery takes Japanese to another level. They do offer excellent sushi and a few Japanese favorites - but the theme here is Japanese small bites, and some of the best food is cooked Robata style - cooked over an open grill often on skewers....

Went on a Saturday night and it was busy! Great fresh sushi, great atmosphere. While walking out close to 10pm, bar area was very busy! Next time will try to get a table on the outdoor terrace in the front, looks really nice but it was raining when we went so we sat inside!

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
