I go to restaurants near the Pantages all the time because I have a series at the theater. Horrible service. A meal that lasted 2 1/2 hours should have been 1 1/2 because of service. Not worth the trouble. I will have to avoid this place unfortunately.

Our dining experience at Katsuya was one for the memory books. From the moment we walked in to the bartender (and happy hour until 730) to our server, Christian to the food and dessert! Everything we ate was delicious and flavorful and as busy as our server was he made us feel like the only table in there. My last experience at Katsuya near Staples center was one of the worst and this made up for it tenfold. Thank you!

The staff is OK, they should go over the menu and make suggestions. When we go there we always are not sure what to order. We were going to a play down the street and this restaurant had an opening so we picked it. We have been to a ton of Japanese restaurants, we have been to Japan. We just always look at the menu and feel its organized in a way that makes deciding what to order difficult. Food was tasty, the short ribs, the brussel sprouts where great. The sushi, it could be what we ordered was nothing exceptional. It was good, just not over the top.

a great place to go before the Pantages show - food was great (we had two rolls, the short ribs, and the wagyu beef potstickers which were the weakest point). Service was great; ambiance a bit too noisy for us; we were trying to catch up with friends and couldn't really hear well.

Katsuya's service was as delightful as the food. Our waiter gave solid recommendations for me and my dinner date, who went with the steamed edamame to start then shared a rock shrimp tempura roll, spicy tuna roll and one of the popular dishes -- the baked crab hand roll. The rock shrimp tempura was savory with the perfect amount of crunch while the baked crab hand roll was soft and fresh to the palate. Katsuya is a solid choice, especially if you're in the mood for Japanese food and stuck on where to eat.

The food quality and service was good, however I thought the portions were extremely small for the price. We spent over $500 for dinner for 6 people, brought our own wine for the $25 corkage fee, and we all left feeling hungry still. And I found it strange the restaurant automatically added a 20% tip for a part of 6.

I love Katsuya Hollywood. I love all of the Katsuya locations but this was is the original and I love it there. I was craving the baked king crab rolls. Yum. We are all our favorites and tried some new amazing specials. Fantastic meal.
They had a great DJ the night we were there and it definitely added to the ambiance.
