Wife and I were going to a show at the Comedy Store and this was just a couple of doors down. We were certainly pleased with our choice. They were quite careful and accommodating to alter dishes to make them gluten free which I always appreciate as someone with celiac. I've never had crab legs cooked on charcoal (robata) but... More

You might catch a celebrity there. Atmosphere is chic, lights are always dim. They have outdoor sitting with lamps. The women dress stylish. The food is... More

If you like to throw your money away on chicken on a stick then please do so. The rice was not good at all and their ginger on my salad was horrible. I could not wait to leave there and go back to the hotel to get room service.

Recently, while visiting LA, we had the pleasure of dining at Katana - the entire experience, from the exceptional food, to the phenomenal Sake to the extraordinary service is not to be missed if you are in Los Angeles!

Had a phenomenal meal here last night. The food was fabulous from start to finish. Highlights were the tuna carpaccio, Chilean Seabass robata and the Asian short ribs! The sushi selection was fabulous too including scallop, salmon and yellowtail. Hakasan sake was lovely too. Highly recommended!!
