The restaurant is directly across the street from my hotel so trying it was a no brainier. The place is beautiful, with a casual elegance I don't often associate with Japanese restaurants. The menu is extensive and the serving staff helpful in providing guidance on the items that may be unfamiliar. This is to an inexpensive place to dine, but the quality of the food and service, combined with a lovely ambience make it worth the money.

Visited Katana on the recommendation of friends and overall were not disappointed, although it doesn't compare to the likes of Roka Akor in terms of the food and quality of service. What this restaurant does have though is a 'happening' energetic and vibrant atmosphere coupled with what still must be categorized as some outstanding dishes.

Of extraordinary taste and preparation and worthy of special mention were the Robata Kobe Pepper Beef; the Wagyu Gyozas and the Spicy Crunchy Tuna Rolls. The sushi and sashimi are what you expect from any respectable Japanese restaurant with nothing a stand-out?!?

We came there because we were staying really close to it. We didnt have any reservation but they found us a place to stay on the bar wich was by the way very enjoyable because You can see the chefs cooking. The food was really good there even if the portions are small. I would also recommand the regular Rice wich is amazing with the sauce.

Delicious food, fun atmosphere, and a wonderful, gracious server. We didn't make reservations, and although it appeared that a table on the terrace was the place to be, we sat indoors at the sushi bar instead. I'd highly recommend it!

Great crowd! Celebrity spotting. Hollywood spot for sure. Nice outdoor view of the Sunset Blvd. Amazing service, all the staff were super friendly and helpful. You're paying the price for the hotspot, luxury lifestyle here.

The food was amazingly fresh and tasty. Sashimi, sushi rolls, skewers, and drinks.

Filet Mignon w Foie Gras - Must have! They're not gonna have it anymore after 5 days.
Miso Popcorn Shrimp with Asparagus and Mushrooms - Delicious!
Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice - Spicy kick and Crispy!
Yellowtail Fresca - Super fresh and tasty!
Chilean Seabass - Melts in your mouth!
Lobster Roll - Filling.
White Lotus Roll - Good.

Chocolate Sake
House Hot Sake

We had a few more items, but I forget what they're called. Over all this place is good, but pricey for the atmosphere and celebrity spotting.

They knew it was my birthday, since I had the same birthday as their manager. They did a bunch of surprise birthday desserts for me. Super sweet of them!
