Katsuya- Brentwood Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

My 12:00p reservation somehow cancelled at 12:02p on the day of my business lunch meeting. No one at my office cancelled it, so there must be some problem in the OpenTable system that needs correcting.
Please advise if there is something else I am supposed to do.

Always packed, late 20's-40's crowd- hip, pretty people. Good service, good food. Served family style. Excellent opportunity to try many things on the menu from twists on traditional Japanese staples, to Contemporary. Fun place to people watch as well. Overall, I've enjoyed it on multiple occasions and the meals have always been exceedingly good with excellent presentations.

I've been coming to this restaurant for 8 years. Always love the food and experience. It seemed more crowded than ever though! Packed!
Favorite things are the rock shrimp roll and the crab hand roll - add avocado and jalapeño. Yum!

I sent a note to Katsuya/SBE group about our experience. pasted below.
I’m writing to you to discuss my dining experience on Tuesday evening this week. I want to first start off by saying that I am a huge fan of Katusya, and I truly do love eating there as often as I can. I rarely ever take the time to write any sort of emails like this, but this was a rather bad experience, and definitely warranted an email to you guys. First of all, like I said, I’m a frequent visitor of Katusya in Brentwood. I have never had a bad experience. The service is always great, it’s quick, it’s nice, the whole bit. However, Tuesday night was a nice occasion. I had family in town and I had boasted about how amazing the restaurant was. I need to start by saying that we ended up having to CANCEL dishes, because they just never showed up. In particular, the crispy rice/spicy tuna, which I know how it is usually timed, and for them to not even show up was just ludicrous. We reminded our server twice, and they still didn’t show. We were given dishes that we didn’t even order too. The timing was just truly awful. There were tables all around us getting everything they ordered, and then there was us, with barely anything. It just took forever, and that’s usually out of the ordinary. We were really really unhappy about it. I’m not sure if you can even do anything about this but I at least had to make you aware of it all.

The food is always delicious here. We were a group of 7 celebrating my daughter's 15th birthday. We all shared the rock shrimp rolls, black cod, filet with foie gras, rib eye with mushrooms, spicy tuna rice cakes, and a few other items. We could not stop eating it was so delicious. Especially the filet. For desert we ordered the bread pudding, creme brulee, and chocolate cake. The bread pudding was out of this world. Our food came out quickly, table was always cleaned up, drinks refilled, etc. Staff is very friendly and attentive. The french coffee press is delicious, but I still wish they had an espresso machine.

I had made a reservation a week ahead of time. When we got there there were three open booths and yet they would not sit us in one. I had also called ahead to let them know that we were celebrating a birthday and the server seemed annoyed when I reminded him...clearly he had no clue. I have been to the restaurant a few times--this was definitely a disappointing visit!

Food was excellent. Noise level in the back room is intolerable. Saw another party reseated in the main room because they could not stand it. Loved food but it was so loud I will not return. DO NOT accept back room table.

I am an open table member and I have never written a negative review about a restaurant. I thought I would write this because I thought the restaurant, management, and new comers should be aware. I have eaten at Katsuya multiple times and we always go around opening time so it's not very busy. The service has been decreasing every time. This will be the last time i will be eating there. The service was terrible. The waitress was rude and immediately after being seated she asked us what we wanted to eat when we hadn't even opened our menus. So we gave her the drink order and then she asked us again what we wanted to eat without getting our drinks first.
She brought out the drinks and it was wrong. It seems that the bar is a hangout for waiters and waitresses to hang out and talk loudly. Even the manager was in the bar area talking to them. Every time they brought out a roll it was a different server, and we said thank you and they never responded. We asked for more cream and they never brought it. Also, they usually empty your used edamame pods bowl when it's full but ours was overflowing and we had to empty it in our sushi plate. The soy sauce bottle also seems to be almost empty even though the restaurant has just opened. It seems to be poor management and I will not be going back.

We recently moved to Brentwood and wanted to give Katsyra a try. We decided to go during LA Restaurant Week so we could try a little of the most popular items. When making the reservation confirmation over the phone I mentioned to the hostess that we were coming during LA Restaurant Week and she said she would make a note in our reservation. We arrived and were seated and had to remind our waiter for the LA Restaurant Week Menu. He then took away the regular menus and seemed put off to get the other menu. If a restaurant does commit to LA Restaurant Week then they need to NOT make guests feel bad for coming to try their restaurant. I will not be going back to Katsuya because the food really wasn't very good.

The service was terrible. Our drink was spilled by our waiter & he didn't even offer to pour a new drink. He just apologized for knocking my glass, cleaned the table with our napkins and left! The food was so so...Not worth dining at...We will find somewhere with better service.

The hostess was very gracious and the server was lovely, initially. The server even squat down to better explain the menu until... I presented a $30 off $60 voucher and even though my tab was $67 before tax and tip, it became very chilly in there. No refill on the water during the entire meal and it was a very hot day (108 degrees in the Valley) although she checked on the level of soy sauce in the tureen on all the tables. Hard not to notice an empty water glass and no asking if everything was good, as is normally done within the first few minutes of starting a meal.
Food was artfully presented and quite delicious. Adding truffles to the tuna I found to make absolutely no difference in taste while adding $16 to the dish.
