Katsuya Brentwood is one of those places you cherish for special occasions because dining there is a special experience. It is a high-end sushi/robata/grill Japanese restaurant with specialty cocktails and a sexy decor. Even the bathrooms are chic!

I was there for a family member's birthday and the food/drinks came out pretty quickly which is always nice. We had a booth for our group and it fit 7 people comfortably. It also gave us a sense of privacy which is always appreciated.

Katsuya used to be a great place to eat. Our service tonight was terrible. We were literally ignored for most of dinner. In the end, we waited for over 30 minutes with empty dishes on the table. No one cleared them, no one filled our water, no dessert offered. We literally just sat there with a table full of empty dishes. Finally we flagged down someone and asked them to grab our server. A woman (we hadn’t seen before) said “did you need something?” Um, yes, we need someone to wait on us. She looked stumped. I asked if she could please clear these dishes, fill the water, and get our check. It was like I was in an alternate universe. Aren’t I at a restaurant?? I promise, I’m not a dick. I’m a great customer, who’s patient and tips really well. But it was like a free for all in Katsuya tonight. Did management all walk out or something??

Everything was great. The table we had was close to the front door. Every time the door opens a huge gust of wind would make it to our table. So a few of us at the table where very cold. That is the only complaint. We always go to Katsuya and love the food and drinks.

Love this place. Food always consistently good. Service is hit or miss depending how crowded it is and it’s VERY noisy unless you’re sitting in a booth. Wouldn’t stop us going. It’s always buzzing and a great local to have

The food at Katsuya is good. There is no argument there. But the service is not. Our dinner was a celebration for a 16th birthday, and our table was not ready half an hour after our reservation. When I complained, they finally seated the group. They were apologetic and promised to bring the birthday girl a dessert on the house to celebrate her birthday. It never came. You end up feeling like they don't care much about their clients.

Some of the best sushi I've had. Food comes out from two kitchens randomly. Best if food is shared so one person isn't waiting for their dish. Every item was delicious. And the service as very good. The noise level can get pretty loud. But a very good place for a great meal be it families or business.

My family brought me here for my Birthday. I was sad to learn that Katsuya no longer had my 2 favorite dishes on the menu. When I inquired why I received a tad of a snarkly answer.
Service was good & food was good.

We love the "favorites." Dynamite Lobster, crispie rice w tuna, yellow tail w jalapeño, blackened cod. I know there are so many great things on the menu, we should deviate more. But we don't.

Enjoy!

Love this place but we were unfortunately close to a large group of young ladies celebrating a birthday and that made the volume a bit unbearable. That said, I highly recommend this restaurant unless you are looking for something quiet. It's very loud in general, regardless of celebrating teens.

The restaurant was very busy. Long delays between each order. Noise level was so high that it was almost impossible to converse with our guests. We were a table of four. I am all for an energetic place but the noise level really impacted our enjoyment of the dinner.

Never going back. Been here many times over the years. Wanted to go for my Birthday this year (indicated on reservation & when confirmed on voice call). Was sat at the Robata bar... server forgot us serval times, received apps before our drink, never offered water & never received our Robata bar items which had to be removed from tab. Lastly ordered 3 baked crab hand rolls, First was one large the last two were tiny barely any filling looked sad & pathetic. Very disappointed overall. Awful Bday dinner will NEVER return!

We were there for my daughter's birthday. They brought a lot of the food out in the first 10 minutes. We told them to please slow it down. They brought out the next dish 5 minutes later and then every 5 minutes after. We tried to eat as slow as possible but the meal was over in about 35 minutes. And the food didn't taste as good as it usually does.
