Katsuya- Brentwood Ratings and Reviews

Hi.. Regretfully, I have to give this Katsuya a bad review again. We like the one in the valle They removed $63 off our bill but that was not really important nor a satisfactory solution. This was an intimate birthday dinner that turned out to be an embarrassing experience. We would've preferred to have been treated better and our food and drinks to have arrived timed correctly. We were prepared to have a nice long evening with food and drinks, instead we cut it short and headed somewhere else. Why this Katsuya continues to disappoint and yet always bursting with diners truly confounds me.
-they sat us 20 minutes pass our reservation and then we ended up at a horrible table
-we waited another 20 minutes since we didn't want to sit at the "thouroughfare" table
-server did not arrive until 12 minutes after being seated
-we had to wave our server to the bar to point out our drinks were ready to be picked up
-the food arrived before the drinks but one person's order was missing so we all tried to wait to see if the missing food would show up... food got cold..
-we asked our server why the food was not coursed out (we ordered apps too) as requested and she said that food was served "family style'...? are we are Bucca De Beppo...?
-called in the manager (Ricardo) to resolve and the missing food.. while charming, it still took 30 minutes to arrive for a simple uncomplicated roll.
As responsible diners, we tried to resolve our issues at the restaurants rather than "yelping" it. I am sorry to report that we were not successful in having a satisfactory solution.
There are too many restaurants in Los Angeles that offer great service and great food. Let's support those establishments.

Our food was tasty, beautifully presented and arrived reasonably promptly (it was a slow Sunday night). The restaurant feels like a "happening scene" but fortunately was not excessively noisy at the early hour. Our bill was a bit of a shock for the relatively small amounts we ate and drank - dishes are small, there was a huge mark-up on sparkling water, and dessert was way overpriced. We agreed that Katsuya was a positive experience but we would save eating there for special occasions.

People love this restaurant. Food was pretty good to very good, but they were not able to provide gluten free options for my friend. My big issue was service. It was just so hard to get any attention--hard to get more sparkling water, hard to order b'day dessert, hard to get check, etc. We were there for lunch and get out under 2 hours required pressing on our party.
I gave service a very bad score. Our or ...
I gave service a very bad score. Our original waitress was fantastic. She left and we had a young lady that was far more intent on closing the restaurant than anything else. She dropped off the check, said no rush, but then came back and said we needed to close it out. While we were still siting there, she came by and took the soy sauce bottle off the table. It was a very unfriendly way of saying leave! Clearly, her closing was far more important than the guest experience. Btw...it was not closing time and there were many other restaurant guests in the restaurant. So, it is not like we were there 30 minutes after closing time.
I know this is rare....but when you are paying top dollar for a nice experience, the staff should not be looking to rush you out the door, because they want to clear their section.

The food was just amazing! It was a fabulous spot for my 9 year old since the place was packed with families. Only downside was bar area where we sat was way too dark and noisy. Would have preferred sitting in main area but no room.

not a great experience Not going to hurry back anytime soon
food was just ok....not great for the prices they charge
Martini had hardly any alcohol for 15 bucks
they were trying to get us out to get more bodies at our table.

My husband and I went to grab a bite and drinks on Sunday night. Seating options were limited since it was the final hour of the night so our table wasn't ideal. They were out of the dessert we wanted and the food didn't seem as fresh as other visits. Also, the timing of the meal was odd - we got one sushi roll even before our wine had arrived at the table. An okay meal, but not worth the investment for a night out with so many "off" moments.
Some of the dishes were really good (cri ...
Some of the dishes were really good (crispy brussel sprouts, sunset roll), others were mediocre. Service started off friendly but became a bit cold after we had to flag down our server who left us waiting long stretches to place orders for additional items. Noise level pretty high for it being half full at lunch time.

Had a fun girls night. Would have preferred to have been sat in a more comfortable area than the middle of the back room with bright lights shinning down on us. Perhaps a comfortable banquet or front room table would have been more appropriate. Food was good, as expected, our waiter was attentive and helpful.
Really, really like this restaurant and ...
Really, really like this restaurant and have been there many times but this last dining experience was not up to par. I had make the reservation at least 3 or 4 weeks in advance for four of us. We were seated by the front door and each time the door opened cold air came in. My husband asked the hostess to move us and she said it could not be done yet there were other empty tables. The bench seat one of our guests sat on was also soiled with old food. We mentioned this on our way out and the hostess barely acknowledged it. My husband spoke with manager and he was very apologetic and offered a nice discount on a future visit.

We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived right at 6:30. The restaurant had many empty tables but for some reason the girls up front said they would have to wait to seat us. We waited over 20 minutes to sit. I was surprised at the poor service up front. The rest of the evening was lovely.

The Katsuya restaurants in Studio City, Encino and Northridge are head and shoulders better than this location. This location is under staffed, noisy and the service is slow and very impersonal. I have been a Katsuya customer for many years, and will certainly not bother to dine at this location ever again.

I haven't tried a lot of the menu, and what I like I really like. Which is why I don't try other parts of the menu. This restaurant is a real treat! if you are open to it, try the brussell sprouts appetizer. You don't even need to tell your mom you ate them. Really yummy. Best I've had anywhere.

This place delivers on all levels. Honestly, my only "criticism" is that the service is so good and so fast that the dinner flew by rather quickly. The servers aren't pushy or anything...it's not like you feel pressure to leave. It's just a very well executed dining experience. The food is awesome. I far prefer the main room and wish they'd consider addressing the secondary space as it's less pleasant.

I came to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and enjoy a lovely meal. The ambience was cool and hip. The hostess was very lovely. And, my server was just wonderful. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I am enthusiastic about returning to Katsuya.
