Katsuya- Brentwood Ratings and Reviews
If you want really good sushi this is the place to go. My father and I both have birthdays a day apart and we decided to celebrate it together. I submitted my reservation on Opentable and left a note that we are both celebrating birthdays. It apparently went unnoticed as it wasn't acknowledged. Not a big deal but just be aware that if you want them to do something special you might need to let the hostess know up front vs leaving a note via Opentable as it was ignored.
Their Hollywood location is fantastic but Brentwood doesn't have the same vibe. The food is still good but their menu lacks a few of our favorites from Katsuya Hollywood. (Kobe Fried rice). Next time we are in town we will make the hike up to West Hollywood to get the full experience.
we come here every week for dinner because its conveniently located. i think its pricey. usually its good. last night not so much-even my 9 year old thought the food didnt taste as good as it usually does (especially the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno) and my burning mandarin cocktail which i have ordered too many times to count literally burned my lips and throat. i sent it back. they should work on their consistency. that said, its always busy. No other good sushi choices for family dinner out in brentwood unfortunately.
I'll keep it short. Food was good, service was lousy. The server apologized no less than 4 times -- for the kitchen for the bartender for the wait. Maybe it was a bad night but for a spendy dinner, I don't expect to wait 20 minutes between every dish. Looong expensive evening.
Had a 6:30 reservation for 4 (2 adults and 2 children) but no table available except one at front next to door. We were about 15 min late in fairness. Waited for 20 min as was told another may open up. Didn't happen so we sat at the table next to the door where everyone waits, lighting is bad and it was a cold night so had to keep jackets on. Striped bass was good. Robata salmon was also good. Chicken was okay. Creamy shrimp was average as was the baked hand roll. Rainbow roll was good. Fire alarm went off and added to the lack of ambiance. One of the least restful meals I have had.
This location is consistently VERY cold inside when it it is cold outside. Many diners kept their coats or sweaters on. We were first seated near the front door and asked to be moved because it was unbearable every time the door opened. It was not much better further back in the room.
Complete disaster!! Some dishes we ordered never made it to the table. Even the waitress had no idea what we had eaten and what was to come. We asked for plates 3 x and they never brought them for us till finally we finished most of the dishes. The restaurant is so loud you can't even take to one another.
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 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.
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 (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 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.
