Katsuya- Brentwood Ratings and Reviews
Katsuya-Brentwood was great! We dined on National Sushi Day and I had the prix fixe sushi menu. It was a great way to try a lot of different things. My wife enjoyed miso black cod, and her favorite hand crab rolls. You can't go wrong at Katsuya. There's something for everyone and the atmosphere is hip. Great cocktails too. We couldn't resist indulging in one of their fabulous desserts. Katsuya has one of my favorite dessert menus! Special thanks to the manager, Jaclyn, who took a personal interest in our dining experience. Well done!
Went here for a friends birthday because it's his favorite place. Food was really delicious and the service was fantastic! It's a nice restaurant where kids are actually welcome! Most places like these would either not allow kids or give really bad service, but we still had a really wonderful experience.
Every time I make a reservation I ask to be seated in the main room. I never get a reply, but when I arrive, the hostess always takes my group to the room I do NOT want, and then they act very rattled about finding an option in the main room. This time we had to be seated OUTSIDE because they did not have a table for us, and we had a reservation. The hostess apologized, but why can't they honor or at least respond to my request if they cannot honor it?? It happens every single time we go to this restaurant.
Accommodated our request for a booth which helped with noise. But had a few different waiters taking orders and delivering food so they brought stuff we didn't order and never got some things we did order until asked where it was.
I usually refrain from leaving poor reviews, but the service was pretty bad. Went early on a Sunday with my girlfriend (had reservations). They directed us to a booth up near the entrance door. Not great but we're not that picky if the food and service are good. "We'll need this booth in an hour" I was told as we sat down. Okay...
Funny, the "good booths" near the center of the restaurant were still empty when we left. There were literally 4 occupied tables in the restaurant when we sat down yet it took our server 15 minutes to come and ask if we wanted drinks. We saw her literally twice before the bill arrived, which I had to get up and ask for.
The toro sashimi was excellent but the hot food was mediocre. The chicken teriyaki could have been picked up at Whole Foods and the stripped sea bass (their specialty) was luke warm, deep fried and covered in a thick sticky syrup over a heavy tempura crust . Our waitress dropped it on the table, and said "Sea bass" before quickly walking away. I tried tearing the fish apart with my chop sticks before a nice older Asian man saw me and came by with silverwear. He was the one very attentive person, refilling our water. My girlfriends dinner showed up 20 minutes after mine.
We had spent the previous weekend at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach where every single person from the front desk to the restaurant personnel, to the room service attendants were top notch, friendly and ultra professional. This restaurant seemed to have a lot of attitude - which is kind of strange and out of place in today's world. Most of us are too busy to deal with that. Maybe it was a bad night...hopefully.
Great food, mediocre service and very noisy. I had notified restaurant of a birthday at time of reservation, and then when I confirmed reservation, and at check in. But the waiter didn't bring out a candle with the dessert we ordered. Very disappointed.
Got to the restaurant at 8 p.m. Had food in front of us at 8:20 and never got our Sake until 8:35. They were out of the Sake we requested and then tried to charge us for both bottles of sake. Food was almost finished before we got our drinks. Very chaotic atmosphere. Had two waiters and both didn't know what the other was doing. Food was at least good.
Katsuya is consistently great. The food is inventive, fresh and beautifully presented. Beware - most of the portions are small, so a full meal can get pricey. There are a few "all-in" meals that are quite good if budget is an issue. Be prepared for lots of noise.
