About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Featuring the dynamic pairing of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Philippe Starck, Katsuya is truly a feast for the senses. With specialty cocktails, unique rolls, and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters, Chef Uechi skillfully translates Japanese flavors for the American palate. The superb talent and exacting precision of Katsuya is changing the face of Japanese cuisine. The Japanese kanji symbol “Katsu” means “victory,” and it is fitting considering the loyal following of celebrities, locals and critics the restaurant has won over.

The restaurant was permanently closed when we showed up. No advance notice from anyone including OpenTable. Was meeting people for work. Created a problem.

Our server was polite and patient with us. We were just casual and having a good time. In no hurry to rush through dinner. The food came out as it was prepared as it should with shared dishes. I ordered from the chef tasting menu. The filet was over cooked but that issue was rectified quickly. Food was delicious!

Delicious food with delightful contrasts in tastes, textures and heat. Amazing dish was the Mushroom Bop! We were so sad that Latsuya was closed on Sunday and Monday or we would have come back. Were in town for a 4-day meeting and trade show...

I was excited to eat hear with my girlfriend, but what a massive letdown! The food portions were tiny for the price they charge. Also there was no choice of side dishes, except boring "White Rice"

The food we did get was very tasty, but lacking in volume! After the meal we went else were to eat to satisfy our hunger!

Finally the restaurant it's self has no privacy & is exposed to the casino noise!!!

Don't waste your money!

I come here every year for the last three years with business colleagues during the CES show in Las Vegas. The food and service are outstanding. Only complaint is that it is very loud when you’re with a larger party.

Terribly slow service. Wasn’t waiter’s fault. Kitchen was understaffed on a busy convention night. Food was average at best: Much better sushi in Las Vegas for the price.

I have tried many Sushi places in Las Vegas. Katsuya did not disappoint. We tried the Sushi tasting menu option and we were not disappointed. It really was filled with some of the best choices. We were only two people and this option said it would feed 2 to 4 people, it was so good that we polished it off. I highly recommend Katsuya if you love good, traditional sushi options.

We have been regular & enthusiastic customers of Katsuya (this LV location as well as Brentwood and Hollywood) for many years. Hopefully, this evening's experience was an aberration We had out of town guests visiting and my wife had been raving about the Wagyu beef and mushroom item on their menu for 4 months. In fact, last summer a friend from New Jersey visited and, after one night's visit, insisted on coming back to Katsuya the next 3 nights in a row. So my wife (a former federal prosecutor with the US Department of Justice who is very careful with her wording), specifically asked our server if the item listed on the regular menu as "FILET TOBANYAKI* A beef lover's dream, served sizzling hot with wild mushrooms" (no specific mention of "Wagyu") was this same "dream dish," repeating her experience from last summer. She was told that it was. When the dish came, it was less than mediocre: while the mushrooms and seasoning were fine, the beef was tough and tasteless in contrast to the "melt in your mouth" quality from last summer. When this was mentioned to our server, her response was surly, dismissive and insulting. While the manager comp'd the dish, he too could learn a thing or two about customer relations. During his conversation with my wife he actually asked her "Are you sure you ate at this restaurant?" Really? On the positive side, the crispy chicken salad, crispy Brussel sprouts, spicy edamame and yellow tail sashimi were outstanding and the creamy rock shrimp were very good. It is a lovely restaurant and the bar area seating for happy hour is pleasant and comfortable. 'Twas a shame that my wife's build-up and our experience was greatly diminished by poorly informed and poorly trained personnel. As an addendum, it is interesting to note that when one goes to Katsuya's website and does NOT specify a location, Wagyu Tobanyaki appears on the menu. This is the dish that so inspired my wife and her friend from the Jersey shore.

Katsuya- SLS Las Vegas never disappoints! We usually go there at least 3 or 4 times a year (birthdays, anniversaries, friends visiting town, etc.) and every time is truly a marvelous dining experience!

We went for my birthday and I was treated like a queen--with the host extending b-day wishes and our server Matt was fantastic! Along with making sure we were having a great celebration, he definitely was an expert about the sake varieties & the cocktails!

Although we have favorite dishes on the menu, we wanted to try some new ones this time & Matt provided us with great descriptions & suggestions. Thumbs up for the Wafu Carbonara & Rainbow Roll--marvelous additions with some of our usual favorites!

After the fabulous dinner (and my Fallen Angel cocktail--Wow!), we received a delightful dessert surprise--bread pudding & ice cream!

Truly one of my most memorable birthday dining experiences!

We definitely recommend Katsuya!

We are fans of Katsuya restaurants all over the world. Our previous stop was in Los Angeles in Hollywood, which was an exceptional visit. In comparison to Vegas, it s been a huge disappointment. Atmosphere is not the same, venue is very different so the quality of dishes. We had the feeling to be in a fake Katsuya. Very very poor experience. 😒 Go instead to some other ace. It is not worth it.

Service was spot on Happy hour specials about 1/2 price of others and well suited for a quick dive into some very good sushi.
