Food is always amazing! However, they sat us at a table in a hallway from one dining room to the back dining room/bar. Really bad location because servers and guests were constantly walking by. Initial service was terrible. We sat at our table for about 15 minutes before a single person came by. Finally I flagged a server down to ask if he could find our waiter.
Delicious as always. Service is quick. Love to eat here. Fish is always fresh.
One of our very favorite restaurants. Always great food and excellent service.
Most excellent experience this time around
Food A +
Value $ wise A
Noise level D although it was also Mother’s Day
Quite impossible to have or hear a conversation
This place is totally family friendly
It is like the CPK of sushi
While at the same time is the Westside Hotspot for all the beautiful people
We were seated somewhat close to the front door if we weren’t there would’ve been a perfect evening .
Great service great cocktails great food, we’ll be back!
One of LA's top restaurants. A sure winner for any occasion.
Friends birthday but no one acknowledged it or brought a cake out or anything even though I put a special note under the reservation.
Food was an A plus but when you note in your reservation that you are celebrating a birthday and then reconfirm that at check in and the waitress fails to recognize the occasion that is a faux pas that is unacceptable
Worst service ever and I go there often and was so surprised.
Great evening out with our team from Houston. Solid sake and beer selection, creative rolls (corn crunch!), FRESH sushi & sashimi. Don’t miss this Brentwood location!
An alright sushi experience. The generic fusion dishes seem throughout LA with little to differentiate. Where others integrate out of the box ingredients or exceptional quality and attention to detail, Katsuya wades trough the middle, passing but not excelling.
You’re paying more for the atmosphere, definitely not the grade of sushi or authenticity of dishes.
We had the best time in Katsuya, got a great a table at the back room, drinks and food was delicious-great service and overall above amazing atmosphere-loved it!
A little too loud.
Table not ready at ourbooked time (previous guests long gone, table just not cleaned up. so we were sent to the tiny bar to wait. Tiny meant 4 seats that were already taken. If they don’t have a bar that can accommodate waiting guests, they should manage their clean up better.
Service was great
Food was good
Hostess forget we were there waiting for our reservation so after 30 minutes I had to go up and tell her. Service was terrible and food was ok. I’ve had good dining experiences here but this one was terrible
Great food, nice staff. Pricey but good. Noise levels high. Hard to have a conversation. Could not hear the waiter...
Excellent waiter. So helpful and attentive. Sushi was fantastic. Best salmon sashimi. The crispy rice appetizer was excellent!
Everyone was lovely and polite. The serves was good. I have no complaints about anything. The waitress gave me good recommendations and she was sweet too.
This place used to be my favorite place to have sushi. This time around, I am sorry to say, the sushi was not very fresh and a far cry from their usual previous top standards. So sad. The service was very good though and the cocktails yummy. I will give Katusya another try....maybe they had an off evening? But not so good when you are paying top price.
16 th birthday dinner for my daughter. she loved it!
We've been going for years, but less and less and now probably not again. Partially empty restaurant and they sit us next to bathroom. Why do that? Also, they bring the food out incredibly fast... like it's pre-made. I remember this from last time, too. They really want you to eat and get out. Last time had our food within ten minutes of sitting down and we're done in 45 minutes. Not a great dining experience for $350 for four people.
The food was excellent and the service good considering that the place was very crowded.
Unfortunately, the room was extremely noisy so it was difficult to hold a conversation with our guests. This is a good restaurant for the delicious food but not it's not great for socializing.
Solid service quiet place for leisurely lunch
Food was well prepared and well priced for quality
If you love Japanese food, you will rejoice in the high quality ingredients they clearly use. The food is perfect...but no inexpensive. The service is slow but fine if you want to linger and enjoy your company. I highly recommend it to foodies.
Brian was great.
Great place for a long lunch. The lunch specials are all delicious and it's always quiet enough for great conversation.
So many choices for good sushi and a hip vibe in LA. Katsuya feels like it’s had it’s day, and that day has passed. The sushi was lack luster, rather tasteless, except for the shishito peppers, which were inedibly hot, even for shishito peppers. The Katsuya “special roll” was actually devoid of flavor. The Spanish mackerel sushi tasted old. Robota eggplant had zero taste, which made that experience like eating cardboard. The Japanese mushrooms were good and yellowtail shashimi was good. Bread pudding... a waste of calories. Again, very little flavor. I am perplexed that food could be so consistently bland. New management?
All in all, after spending a couple hundred on disappointing food, we left hungry.
Great vibe and delicious food for the value! Will definitely be back for more lunch.
The food and service was amazing we plan on going back soon.
Overrated, service underwhelming, good food, but not great for what it costs.
It was loud in there and there was a group of girls smoking outside and the front door was open so that smell was coming in by our table. I got up and shut the door as the hostess and waitstaff thought nothing of it. Additionally, the server was very pushy and rushed us through our meal. Then with two full glasses of wine - he dropped the check and repeatedly came over to see if we took care of the bill yet. Our reservation was at 8pm. He dropped the check at 9:15 or so... it was just an annoying dinning experience overall. We won’t be back.
I used to love this restaurant. However, they revamped the lunch menu and got rid of the dishes that I enjoyed the most. Moreover, they have doubled the prices on most lunch items and reduced the portions significantly. Katsuya used to be packed at lunch time, yet during this visit it was nearly empty. My guess is that other patrons feel the same way I do about the restaurant's menu changes.
Love Katsuya. We go once a week. But we got beyond frustrated that we booked a 7:00pm dinner and didn’t sit until 7:30. Why make a reservation? Beyond that, all is great.
Best sushi I’ve ever had! I can’t wait to return♥️
Parking is tough though.
food was really slow and hot food was cold, use to be a great restaurant not any more
Disclaimer: I am a vegetarian so it may not seem fair to write a review for a sushi restaurant. What I can tell you is that the vegetables on this menu are beyond delicious, flavorful and satisfying. It is so nice that the rest of the family can have high quality sushi and I can feast on delectable veggies.
