Diner Reviews
  • "A consistent surprise with how good everything still is. The grilled Brussel sprouts, blk cod and tuna w crispy onions are to come back twice in a day."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "When our party of 6 turned into 8- the staff was very accomadating and after a short wait, moved us to a more comfortable table. Food was a bit pricey but delicious. The Sautéed Brussel Sprouts and Spicy Tuna on Crispy Ricecakes are must haves. The cooked salmon roll was a bit disappointing. All in all a great dining experience."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Food was delicious , ambience was pretty. Best sushi around I recommend it very much. It is a bit pricey. But worth it."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Perfect for every occasion. We always start with appetizers and maybe fill in with the chicken salad. You can't go wrong."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Unlike Bazaar, a different SBE restaurant (that in my opinion is ridiculously overpriced and pretentious), the Brentwood location of Katsuya is perfect. Great, friendly service, fantastic food, and delicious cocktails that are actually worth $15."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Right up there with the best Sushi places in LA, but you pay for it. Fantastic food and excellent service"

  • "Excellent food, beautiful decor. Great rest room sinks. Have been there for lunch a few times. Always good."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "the food is delicious and we never have a problem getting in. the staff is super friendly and management is on point. if you love the yellowtail with jalapeño, order the citrus spoons.. you won't regret it!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Delicious dining at this handsome venue with attentive service"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I gave this two stars for service because although the food was terrific, the hostess and others working the reservations need to brush up on their manners and reservation handling. We had an appointment for 8:30 but were running late due to congestion on PCH. I called to let the restaurant know that we would be about 20 minutes late. She said it was fine and did not mention anything about giving our table away. To our dismay, when we arrived our table had been given to someone else. I found out after waiting another 30 minutes or so, that a few other parties were ahead of us. I wish that she had told us when we called so we could have gone somewhere else. The fact that she didn't tell us, and barely apologized earns them low points."

  • "The food was okay. Not worth the price and some of the sashimi didn't taste that fresh."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Went there recently. We've been before, so we knew what to expect. Our waiter was professional and very pleasant. Food was very good. A little pricey, but we expected that."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The food is terrific, and so is the service. Earlier in the evening, it's full of families. By 8-8:30, it's more of a hotspot and VERY loud."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our first visit and it was everything the reviews said it was. Great food but a bit expensive for what you get. However, the crispy brussel sprouts are definitely worth trying. Great service…attentive and helpful. Noisy and it wasn't even full while we were there. The design of the restaurant doesn't allow for the noise to be absorbed so you do have to raise your voice to be heard while speaking. It may be a bit better to sit close to the entranceway for a slightly quieter environment."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We have enjoyed Katsuya many times, more than 20 however unless you remember when you start to order, they rush out all the dishes. This sucks. No one wants to be rushed. its not a laker game where you want to rush to your great and it is consistently happening. its one thing to turn tables but that is not what a good first class restaurant should do. Dining is supposed to be a enjoyable relaxing experience, not a fast food deal."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We were in the mood for a light meal and a great martini. Katsuya delivered both. We are very happy customers."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "This restaurant is beautiful and the food is great but it gets so loud in there that we had to escape after we ate to some place a lot quieter to be able to relax and hear each other talk. I wish they would put some sound absorbing items on the walls to quiet the place down bit."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Can't say enough how amazing the food was. Best sushi ever!!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Great evening. Sat in the beautiful back room and ate many small dishes, all excellent. Our waitress was sweet and attentive. Over great experience!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Got the wagyu ribeye, asked for medium rare but received medium to medium well. Though it was still tasty I'd like it to be bloodier. The rock shrimp was good also."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Spicy tuna on crispy rice mini-patties, marinated cooked mushroom dish - those are my favorites. It's a bit pricey for what it is; there's a better place up the street without ambience if it's amazing food you're after. But the look of Katsuya and the wonderful service make it a nice choice for special occasions, dates..."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "We have been to Katsuya a number of times because the food is excellent. However, every time we go it is so noisy in both rooms that we can't hear each other talk. Also, we tend to eat earlyish--6 or 6:30 and we are always put next to screaming children. We have decided not to go there anymore after this last noisy experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food is great, the staff are friendly, the atmosphere is classy and vibrant. However there is a price to pay for all this :) If you have a special occasion and don't mind spending a bit more than you usually would, I would highly recommend it. If you are looking for a more causal dining, your checkbook may not be too pleased."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I love the food but i HATE this place. The layout of the main room makes every table in there undesirable with exception of the booths. The chairs and tables are so uncomfortable. I sat with my knee pushed into the leg of a table. The way this place is designed makes it way too loud. The first platform of tables is THE WORST...you get the draft of the front door & tons of people waiting for their reservations; they are always running 30 to 45 mins late. The hostesses are unfriendly & unhelpful. The service is terrible except for the busboys. The waitstaff just plunk stuff down on the table and walk away. The plates are way too big for the tables so you feel like you have to eat fast to make room for your next dish. good food, bad place."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Came back to dine after many years hiatus. Crispy rice with spicy tuna fab. Also a special mushroom dish was delish. Service prompt and the restaurant is pleasant looking."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "food was great, service was good. too much noise though, didn't care for Omakase at all though way too over price and not good stuff but loved every thing else, great drink if you go there pic what you like don't fall for omakase "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "After waiting 45 minutes to be seated after our 9pm reservation, Katsuya is definitely going downhill. The food was average and the service was not top notch like it used to be. I've been to Katsuya since day 1 and I think that the service and food has definitely declined. This place is not worth your time if you are looking for a good dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food, as usual, as delicious. Our server, Yuli, recommended several dishes & was very helpful & personable. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "This is not really a Japanese restaurant. It is a fun, fusion restaurant in the heart of Brentwood offering a taste of something good for everyone's palate. Start with cocktail: Give me a break..a maraschino in a Manhattan? No Templeton Rye? This is not a serious bar. Our food was tasty. I'll return as others return. I'll return for the tasty food, nice ambiance, convenience to home. I return with the knowledge that every item is wildly overpriced. Yet, I'll return "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "The food quality was excellent. I live in Dallas and come to this restaurant every time I visit LA, at least once a month. I've never had a bad meal or service. The quality of raw fish is as good as Tokyo."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Delish! Super nice, romantic, beautiful decor, and sushi was AMAZING! "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Always a favorite - good, though pricey, sushi. The spicy tuna on crispy rice is good. The sea "baze" is a Szechuan style sea bass that is very good"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "we had been to the Hollywood branch of this restaurant several times and decided to try this one as we were unfamiliar with Brentwood. It's a cool space - but very loud. My wife opted to sit at the rear sushi bar - either the chefs are either totally "in the zone" or anti social as the guy standing over us never even acknowledged us once, just kept peeling cucumbers. Food and service were good but probably not a repeat..."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "I had mentioned my friend's birthday when I made the reservation and nothing was done about it. Unusual for restaurants in this area!"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "This time the fish, usually perfection, just wasn't up to snuff. Oh well. It happens. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Katsuya has become the "in spot of Brentwood" is well as a gem for consistent great food and service. Reservations are actually honored on time with a minimal wait if ever. The service is excellent and the waiter staff friendly and smart and fun as well. Drinks are excellent, and even for non alcoholics as they have their own Gingerale which is very good. The various Japanese dishes are all good and a wide variety. And of course great people watchin,. Yes, visit often and you can always enjoy a wonderful evening. "

  • "Delicious Japanese dining in a beautiful venue with attentive staff."

  • "As always a fantastic experience. We were bringing a 2 year old and an infant with 6 adults so we set an early reservation (5:30). They gave us one of the big booths which contained both kids perfectly. Service was patient and attentive. Food was stellar. "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Server was really sweet and helpful with great recommendations. We sat in the back room by the bar which had more of loungy feel. Food was delicious!"
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Love the food, and such an interesting menu. The restaurant also has a great vibe! We would definitely go back, but not on a Saturday night. The restaurant is very contemporary, lots of wood, and has nothing to absorb the noise. So, it's not a great place for having a conversation with friends. (and thank goodness, we were only 4 ... if we had a table for 6 it would have been really difficult!) "
