Diner Reviews
  • "Disappointing all around. Food was nothing special. Restaurant was practically empty. Service was fine. All in all a disappointing experience and I would not come back."
    Dined on 5/12/2013
  • "We love Katsuya, you can always count on good food no matter what city you dine at!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Katsuya Hollywood is a perfect dining spot for Pantages theater ticket holders! The food is great and they will time your meal to get you to the performance on time! Try the Wagyu beef with mushrooms, it's spectacular! Tuna with crispy rice noodles and jalapeno yellowtail sashimi are also my regulars! Park your car and the valet will keep it all night so you just walk across the street to the show! We love it here!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We ate here before a show at the Pantages and loved, loved, loved it! I don't eat sushi, but my husband does. He said it was absolutely wonderful. I had a steak that was amazing. Would highly recommend this to everyone, though it's not cheap. It is, however, well worth it for a treat."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We had a great experience. We were a bit late to our reservation (prior to the attending the Pantages Theatre across the street) The place was packed. The hostess was so nice and got us a corner at the sushi bar. The waiter was on top of things…quick cocktails and a roll, the check and we were out of there. We got a bite and everyone was great!!! Will go back again and enjoy the beautiful setting and not be late!!!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I'm not sure if the manager has a new and relaxed style, but SBE usually has higher customer service standards than the more business than personality hostesses and low-key (almost "Whatever, I just got off my surfboard" waiter we had. The food is always great, portions are ok for some dishes and smaller for others at the table (same price range dishes)... overall the experience was "ehhhhh". Probably will just entertain business clients somewhere else they feel appreciated and just go their when we want a personal food fix..."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Put all of the hype aside and this is a great restaurant! Our server Josh was excellent, the food was delicious and came put fast (Friday night at 8pm) and the whole staff understands service. One would think that a place that frequently makes it on TMZ would have an elitist attitude but it was really a great time!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Sushi was not bad, but honestly I prefer its sister restaurant Kiwami in Studio City."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We had a fabulous time at Katsuya both for its incredible delectable gourmet sushi and for its really cool techno modern interior. We will return."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Food, service, whole experience was fantastic! Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We had great drinks (watermelin mojitos!) and amazing sashimi - but the service was not great. Seemed like the staff was more interested in looking chic than in serving customers. The waiter who takes your order is not the person who delivers the food to your table... and when the waiter doesn't check in - he doesn't notice that one person didn't get their dinner. (in his defense - he did get it rushed to the table and then comp'd it) The food is really good, though. Would go again on date night!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I love sushi and was looking forward to trying Katsuya. The sushi was very mediocre and on average about $18/roll. The cocktails were good but a very weak pour. The decor was lacking and looked rather cheap. The best food item I had was a "wagyu" beef dish with mushrooms. I would not recommend going here for their sushi."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "It's always a dilemma when I dine here because I'm not a sushi fan, at all, but my best friend LOVES sushi! Hmmm . . . It's a good thing the cocktails there NEVER disappoint, and I mean NEVER! They're SO good! ALL of them! And my best friend just orders the yummy sushi, and I order a nice beef entree and off we go, two happy little piglets! Our server, a little Will Arnett look-alike, was darling, and took great care of us, thanks!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Katsuya is always a great dining experience. The food is amazing and so is the service. I would have given 5 stars, but had an issue with valet. We left our cars at valet for an event after dinner. The sign clearly states one rate if retrieved by 2:30am and also offers overnight parking. At 2am, we walked back to Katsuya to find valet gone. There was no indication on how or where our cars may be. I spoke with Valet the next day and they will try to better inform guests, their cars will be at REDBURY Hotel across the street."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I've been to Katsuya in Brentwood. It was classy the service was impeccable. Hollywood Katsuya was a waste of time and money. The scene was happening, but I'll never go back there again I'm happy to spend my money somewhere else."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "So amazing is the sushi and all sea food at Katsuya! Love the location and the Ambience is ok but could use an update."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "The Hollywood location is one of the best Katsuyas. Totally satisfied our Katsuya craving, truly the best sushi restaurants!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We've been to Katsuya a few times, but normally the downtown location. I like being able to dine outside at the downtown restaurant. Food is good, not great. I had the tasting menu, which I had before. Not sure if they changed, you used to be able to choose options. Service was okay. We've had awesome service in the past. At these prices, I want awesome service all the time. Table was too small for my party of five. They wouldn't move us."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We loved it! The sushi was phenomenonal! We had to return an appetizer, because we didn't care for it and it was very graciously accepted. The noise level was a little high for us but I think that could be corrected easily with adjustments to the acoustic design. All-in-all, it was a very pleasurable dining experience and We would all return."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Lobster roll is phenom! Tasty happy hour drink menu as well. Can't go wrong here"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Just a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Fabulously friendly, yet glamorous hostesses at the podium....Great server...a pro and sweet...too! Dishes were all sensational....I mean it...they were perfect. Had rolls, tempura, sashimi ...each the best I've ever had. I was gob-smacked, as they say!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Food as expected was excellent but of more importance; we arrived a little late because of traffic and had to make an 8:00 show, they managed to serve us our full meal and get us to the theater on time without it seeming rushed, good job."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Everything about Katsuya-Hollywood was excellent - the food, the ambiance, the service, even the price. Three of us ate various sushi rolls; one ate Tempura. We look forward to returning soon."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Even by Hollywood standards, Katsuya lacks substance. The place looks beautiful and so do the attentive staff, but the food is just OK. And at these prices, that's a disappointment, especially in LA which is home to some truly spectacular Japanese restaurants. Still, the 30-something Industry hopefuls and TMZ tourist crowd don't seem to mind one bit."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "If you like sushi and alcohol, and you are attending an event at the Pantages Theater, Katsuya a should be at the top of your dinning list."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Lovely place, rock shrimp is always a must have. If dessert is desired, be sure to order early or skip it. They're very accommodating towards guest who need to meet curtain call- just let them know! Drinks are bit overpriced. Favorite spot in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Took my sis there for her birthday with a group of 5 and everything was amazing! The cocktails, food, ambience, and our server was so awesome!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I have eaten there for lunch and dinner and enjoyed the food and the cosmopolitans. Excellent service too."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "We had a reservation at 8:30 and were not seated until around 10:00 pm. We saw at least 15 groups of people come in after us and be seated before us. Then once we were seated, we looked around and the restaurant was empty. They attempted to bring us appetizers since we were waiting so long, but only brought out Edemame & one other cheap appetizer. The food was not even anything special. Drinks were outrageous. NEVER GOING BACK."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here before a Sunday night show at the Pantages. Valet parking for the whole night $17, easy and convenient. We were sat right away with our reservations. Starters, drinks, food was all good. (Random) The Brussels Sprouts are actually good too! And don't forget the 15% off your bill when going to a show. Nice!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Love going here, the fish is really fresh and they have really good warm dishes as well."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We had to rush through dinner because we had to wait over a half hour to be seated, despite having a reservation. Don't go here if you are trying to catch a play at the Pantages like we were. Food was great, but the wait-time to get a table killed what should have been a relaxing splurge dinner before the show."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "space is nicely designed but personally I think it's overly pricey for the quality and amount of food that was given. we ordered 10+ dishes between 4 girls and still not feeling full when we left so we went to a different place for desserts."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Love this place. The sushi is top notch, but their innovative take on regular items makes them even better than the traditional."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "This place is great for a dance club dining effect, but for us the noise was to excessive for a place to have a dinner that cost on the average of $100.00 per person. You have to yell at each other to talk. The sushi was not the best and the food display when delivered to the table was poor without any art to the plate. The food looked like it was just tossed on the plate with no love and sent to the table. Our bill for two was $165.00 and we do not drink. The server and her assistants was fantastic but as I said the Sushi was poor looking and in taste. Honestly it was a waste of money and time going to this place for a quite dinner for two."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food here is good. But it is just not worth the SBE attitude! The table wasn't ready when we got there. The manager was very rude (the best I could tell, she had the job because she was willing to squeeze herself into a very, very tight short skirt, and not for anything going on in her head). The server was nice, but hurried. Valet took far longer than if I had parked the car myself and walked in heels, charged more than the lot, and also had an attitude. I left feeling like they were doing me a favor.... not the way I want to spend my evenings out."

  • "My favorite sushi restaurant in hollywood by far. Excellent food. Perfect place for dinner before a night of dancing. Ideal for big groups and celebrations. I highly recommend the Plum Wine!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The evening started out shaky as we weren't seated unit 9:15 for an 8:30 reservation. The place was packed. The restaurant however, made up for our wait by giving us a free appetizer, sake, and dessert. The food is absolutely wonderful! Every dish was incredible...the best sushi I've had in a long long time! And our waitress was fun, upbeat, and gave us impeccable service."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Had dinner at Katsuya for the first time before going to see the Book of Mormon. Our waiter was very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. He even helped us decide what to dine on. Everything was delicious. The wine options were good as well.. A little spendy but so worth it. Would definitely go again!!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I prefer a dining experience where I can hear my fellow diners and converse and relax to enjoy my meal. While the food was good, the pace and energy level was too frenetic for my tastes."
