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.
Service = meh
Food has declined dramatically. Now paying top shelf prices for mediocre sushi
Good service, good atmosphere, decent sushi-- house rolls were not as great as expected. Decent selection of alcohol- Recommend getting straight up sake as the cocktails were too sweet.
Overall I had a good experience. The restaurant was bustling on a Saturday night of course, but the service was a bit slow due to the high demand. The food was very tasty, so would go again maybe on a week night to avoid a wait. PSA the directions to the restaurant are tricky. The restaurant is easy to miss.
I have never been to Katsura before and I was amazed at how incredible the food was. The service was outstanding. I most certainly will return.
Good food, but the restaurant was cold, loud and our server did not clear the plates until we left.
Tables too close to each other unless you arrive by 11:30 and have 4 people.
Love that you can accommodate birthday luncheons and it is so easy....
Upscael and upbeat. trendy décor, never fails to please. The rainbow roll and katsuya roll are sensational A vegan can also survive . .
My family and I love that place. The help is beyond amazing and the food is delicious. We go as often as we can.
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??
Due to valentine’s day, set up was too crowded. Service was slow
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.
Surprisingly great for a meal out with the kids. Very fun atmosphere, lots to try, good food and service.
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
Way overpriced. Food isn’t even that good. Service was awful.
The food is amazing! The atmosphere is peaceful and inviting. Every time I come here it is a treat!
As always awesome. Took entire family (including 4 kids) for a very special celebration.
You can’t go wrong. Always consistent and always a pleasure to be there.
We loved our waiter, unfortunately I don’t remember his name but he was great!!!!
something was very wrong. slow slow slow. very disappointing. we go there all the time but will rethink.
Great food, friendly staff, but service (time from order to food) was slow.
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.
Always a WOW experience !
Katsuya in Brentwood is delucious, beautiful and Four Seasons likecservice from staff.
Their reduced the items on their menu from the last time I was there.
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.
The staff was extremely friendly, smiley, attentive. Hot food came out very slow
Waited over an hour for food, 20 minutes for valet parking to bring up car, management simply arrogant.
New Years !!
We had to wait more than 30 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, then seated next to the bathroom.
Food has gone down hill. We go every time in LA and this time food was really mediocre at best.
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.
