Don't miss this one...

the baked crab handroll (order
the baked crab handroll (order it cut if you are sharing) is one of my favorites. You can't go wrong with any of their food or sushi. Another one of my faves is miso cod.

Great sushi and other seafood
Great sushi and other seafood dishes. Wonderful atmosphere; fun service; great cocktails. But be warned: even the HALF portions of fish for dinner are HUGE!!!

We had a great evening....a charming server, fabulous and unique drinks and wonderful food. The occasion was for a 40th birthday and it was a huge success. This is the place to be! We have visited on several other occasions and Katsuya never disappoints. Made for a wonderful, memorable celebration!

Katsuya is Kat-su-yeah!!
As always, the food was tremendous. We had a wonderful waitress (I vowed to remember her name, but forgot - drats). We told her how the last time we'd been there the waitress was so rude because we wouldn't order alcohol (it was the middle of a work day). This waitress was very concerned and encouraged us to mention any time there is a bad experience because the restaurant takes all comments very seriously. My colleagues and I had an awesome lunch, our waitress helped us order so we wouldn't over-order, and we cannot wait to go back.

Order as you go
I finally learned! If you want to dine and not be rushed order one or two dishes at a time. Also, my favorite drink ,burning mandarin, is made with measured "small" pour. I was wondering why I never felt a thing after one! I ordered a double and it was just right.
Don't expect a good table.. They save those for contract guests.
Food was excellent!

Best Sushi in LA
I don't think there is any competition on this. Katsuya Brentwood is the best sushi in LA. Try the spicy tuna roll with no mayo and the baked crab hand roll. Fish is always super fresh, which is really the key to any great sushi spot. You won't be disappointed, though it is rather expensive...

For Foodies and Others
This is a great place for any kind of late night experience; groups, couples, special occasions etc. Unbelievably excellent food that will be appreciated by foodies and 'regular' customers as well. The service is very good and staff is very friendly. You can even watch a hockey game at the bar.

We had to wait a half hour past our reservation to be seated. VERY noisy but food was great.

TOO noisy. Service is almost too prompt and rather impersonal
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food! Too loud!
Food is beyond amazing. Noise level is completely ridiculous, especially for what you pay to eat here. Quite disappointing when you get a headache from having to yell to the person sitting directly across from you at a
Table for 2.

The crispy rice with spicy tuna rocks, I go just for those. Plus its a great place for celeb sitings.

Hostess with Attitude 7/08
If I was you I would replace the hostess that was there that night, your restaurant can lose a lot of business with her attitude!
We had a reservation and called to say we were running late, we arrived at 9:48pm and she told us that last seating is at 9:45pm, she would not seat us because 3min past?! I told her it was our anniversary but she didn't care. Later when we asked to speak to the manager she said wait, went to talk to someone and came back to us and said ok she will seat us.
I have been to your restaurant many times, but after her attitude I'm not sure I will be back!

great place in brentwood
this location is beautiful and the staff is overly accomodating. Dined here for restaurant week which allowed us to try some signature dishes for cheap. I would definitely return.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food but felt rushed
They were really busy and a bit behind on their reservations so I feel like we were rushed through our meal. There was a lot of food and it was all absolutely delicious. But I felt like I ate way too fast! Otherwise everything was fabulous! Great ambience and amazing food.

Restaurant week find
Happen to be in town visiting during restaurant week and saw this on the list of participating restaurants. Went with my mom and brother who also happens to be a bit of a foodie. Ordered one of each item on the menus - best for me were: rock shrimp tempura, spicy tuna on crispy rice (appetizers). Really enjoyed the miso cod and the filet (entree). Dessert was a delicious bread pudding with vanilla ice cream, which was delicious!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my husband there for his birthday, and we loved the ambience, noisy, but not too bad. The food and drinks were delicious. I had the Dragon, and the Ginger flavor really came through. The chocolate cake was divine! Our server was excellent. The only thing I wasn't too happy about was our table. We were too close to the table on both sides of us, that even the waiters couldnt really walk through easily. Other than that, it was a great experience.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was good but very loud. I could barely hear my waiter when asked what to order.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently Good As Always
It was a very pleasant dining experience. They honored our reservation exactly on time. Our server Eric could not have been nicer, more enthusiastic or attentive. I only gave the food four stars because I ordered and love miso black cod. It was very good, but not the best I have eaten. However, still one of my favorites for sushi .
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and ambiance were fabulous - lots of children early in the evening and then all adults later - it worked perfectly. Friendly nice staff from Hostesses to waiters! I can hardly wait to return!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Katsuya is a wonder restaurant that I would recommend to anyone who loves sushi and a nice setting.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I felt the food was fine but I think it was overpriced. The service however was great and the ambience was great as well. Overall it was a decent experience.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service Needs Improvement
Our server seemed to be all over the place. It was clear our table wasn't a priority. We had to ask other servers to place our orders a few times. The experience was good, it would been great if our server was on top of serving our table.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Katsuya is great for lunch!
Katsuya has some great lunch combo specials. The miso black cod is excellent!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is great for the best modern Japanese food.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Katsuya is one of our favorite restaurants--Thursday night we were not thrilled with the food--
Everything about the restaurant was perfect and we brought dear friends to experience Katsuya-
The food lacked its usual great tastes--I hope this was just an off night--even tho the price
is the same as a great night of food. It will be a while before we come again- but we will come.

Very fun love the interior
Very fun love the interior of the restaurant very cool! Great food
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Some of the most delicious food ever and we loved the layout of the restaurant with the tables for 6 arranged with chairs and the very comfortable sofas. Stark and Katsuya are both geniuses. We had to wait quite a while for our table, but we were kept updated and were offered free delicious food as soon as we sat down. We all left very happy.
The service was fast and efficient. May be too efficient in taking plates away from the table while we were still picking at it...
Very good value for that level of food. We cannot wait to get back.

We brought an out of town
We brought an out of town guest here (who just happens to be a foodie). She absolutely LOVED everything that we ordered! I have a food allergy and not only were they able to accommodate me, they understood how to get around the allergy to make the food just as yummy as everyone else's!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Company Great Sushi
The food was excellent! It's a bit on the noisy side but it's a place to see and be seen.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Fun Atmosphere
The food is very special and creative as well as being very good. More than sushi there hot offerings are outstanding and they have a great robata menu with many vegetable and meat choices
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Waiter apologized before the order that food would be slow and arrive separately, but took he took slow to a new level. All in the group were well finished before the last plate was delivered.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
He obviously knew what he was doing. He gave us a free appetizer for making us wait like say only 5 minutes before taking our order. Knew his wine...loved what he picked. Overall good food, good service... will come back!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always very good,
Food is always very good, if a bit pricey. Great energy. The Encino version has a very similar menu at cheaper prices - though you do sacrifice on atmosphere. The Brentwood location is always a good choice for a fun night out with friends.

Great spot with friends ...
Nice place to get together ... share good food ... and enjoy the company of friends ...

Every experience i've had at this restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious, the service is friendly and enthusiastic, and the atmosphere is energetic and romantic. Top Notch!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
My two favorites are the crispy rice with spicy tuna and rock shrimp tempura roll - both are one of a kind!!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and ambience.
Amazing food and ambience. Very nice employees. However, we had to wait 30 minutes before they sat us even though we had reservations.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good, but Little Izakaya is Better
Good selection of great dishes. However, the Tempura Shrimp over Spicy Tuna roll is far better at Little Izakaya at significantly less cost.

I had a great time, the people were very nice, the food was good!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was a lunch meeting with old friend and new introduction to new business associate. Everything was absolutely fresh and succulent. Good service. One of the best westside restaurants for sushi lovers.

A celebratory evening for
A celebratory evening for my daughter's 17th birthday, with family. Our server, Jeremy, was terrific, very attentive,( yet not constantly hovering which can be annoying), great disposition and personality, helpful with choices, great people person.
The food was delicious and fresh. Every dish! From appetizers to main courses and through dessert, a melange of flavors and textures to greet your palate. The only relative downside is the price: about $80+ per person, with cocktails and wine. Although worth it for this special occasion.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful tastes ..
Unique offerings in an enjoyable setting ... great to share with friends ...
