Katsuya- Brentwood Ratings and Reviews
I was beyond disappointed in the service (and I love this place). THey never refilled our drinks, the food came in the completely wrong order. We must have had 5 waiters. It was not fun. When you pay a premium, you expect premium service.
I will not be going back.
I've been going to katsuya for years now and i should say if you want to go somewhere to be valued and appreciated its here this location. Cause they know people are local and they want them back and keep their business running
Manager is such a nice guy, Brian was our server he was amazing
Thank you Katsuya please remain great
Never disappointed at Katsuya. Service was a bit slow this past visit, but they made up for it with their delicious crispy rice with spicy tuna on the house. Cocktails were on point and the food always leaves you impressed with the quality and taste. Katsuya definitely raises your standard.
Service was super slow! We ended up being the last ones in the restaurant after lunch shift ended and it seemed like our server forgot about us. We ordered from the menu and one dineLa which was awful but server didn't care about checking if we liked it. We didn't complain because we had to run to an appointment and we were already late because of the service. The server would come and ask us if we are ready to order so we started giving him our order and he just turned around and dropped something at another table and came back to us, so he left us talking by ourselves. He didn't apologize and he seemed he was busy by trying to deliver and take care of orders at different tables at the same time. We both worked at hotels in BEverly hills and some of my guests would ask about this restaurant and that was the main reason we wanted to try it so we can recommend it. I was not impressed at all and won't care about coming back again.
Hostess sat us in cave at first with a table without a working light above us. We had to request to be moved or else we would need iPhone flashlights during the entire meal. Finally we got someone to move us. The best part about the meal was the waiter who was very attentive. The food was very mediocre. We ordered lobster dynamite, 2 crab rolls, corn tempura roll, spicy tuna on crispy rice, shrimp roll, new steak robata, miso soup, albacore crispy onion, shrimp and veg. Tempura. The meal was $190 we did not drink alcohol. Unfortunately nothing stood out as being amazing. My son did not like the robata at all. The lobster was very bland. The best thing we had were the baked crab rolls. It is katsuya so those have to be good. The SBE Katsuya is just not as good as the original. The menu items seem cool but something get's lost in the execution. There are other so many other good sushi places. We will not be returning here
Our first time but but not our last. The menu was varied and we enjoyed everything that we ate. Sat in front outside which was very comfortable and great for people watching - not a single overweight person entered! Does that say something about eating sushi? Good wine list and also a possibility of finding street parking. We look forward to the next time and trying new dishes.
The lobster dynamite is a "must-do" dish here. It'll make you want to sip the dynamite sauce out of the lobster tail (order it and you'll see what I mean). Although the food is always wonderful at all of the locations, this restaurant is far superior to the LA Live and Glendale locations - better service, much nicer decor, more comfortable seating, friendlier staff, more romantic, better parking.
Dinner was interrupted by a power outage that blackened the entire westside. Although the blackout downed the kitchen, the restaurant handled the incident so professionally - the staff was very accommodating, bringing out extra candles, checking on every table and even offering deeply discounted meals to diners! I was very impressed.
Wow. For both the service and food. The cocktail was insane - called the RISING SUN:
tequila with lime, grapefruit, coconut water, cointreau, sweetened with Agave nectar, and served over a mezcal-watermelon ice cube. Yeah, it tastes as good as it sounds. The crab and mozzarella tempura is haunting me....yum.
We booked through Open Table and were told 7:30 was an unavailable time slot for a party of 4. We arrived, the restaurant was barely 2/3 full and we were placed at a table absolutely in the back of the restaurant near the kitchen door and rear bar. Our waiter was always so hurried and rushed. As it turns out, he was also waiting on tables at the absolute front of the restaurant. We are a local family and doubt that Kaysuya remains at the top of our dinner list, especially if we have a friend from out-of-town visiting. With so many other options for special dinners on the Westside, it's only a matter of time that the luster will wear off the Katsuya pearl with many others. Katsuya might want to start by training the waiters to be more professional.
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!
