Visited for a pre-theatre dinner and had a fabulous experience. Pre-dinner happy hour at the bar was great - bartenders were really friendly and fun. Service for dinner was excellent and the food was beautifully prepared and did not disappoint. I'll be back for sure.

This is not your local sushi restaurant but rather a gourmet sushi experience. We had gyoza and vegetable tempura to start, 2 rolls-rainbow and ell, and some delicious sushi pieces as well. Great service, great food, and 1 block from the Pantages theater-we'll definitely be back.

The front desk staff was very welcoming. The service was great. The food was very good but not very unique. I would love to see some more exotic rolls added to the menu.

My client was upset to have to pay the outrages valet fee's after our lunch plus
$100.00 a person is simply no longer a workable business expense.

In one word, TOO EXPENSIVE!

Started off with a couple Grapefruit cosmos and don't forget to ask for fresh wasabi! Makes all the difference! Service was a little off - they seem to have a tiered system (captain, food runners, bussers) but overall great experience.

Interesting decor. Katsuya is in a standard corned building and all of the windows are covered. This caused the entire restaurant to be dark, more like a nightclub than a restaurant.

Our service was good. We were tucked into a corner though so we couldn't see much. Some of our food came out quickly while we waited a long period of time for what turned out to be a simple yet expensive tempura roll which we found disappointing. My cocktail was moderately expensive for what it was. I was hoping for more out of the watermelon mojito. It seemed to have hardly any alcohol.

Food was good and service was good...but we had a 9:30 Reservation and we were told at 10pm last call for food and drinks. We were pushed out quickly and it ruined our experience. We would have gone somewhere else, had we known that was going to be the case.

This is a family favorite venue for dinner when coming to show at the Pantages Theatre. Food is always tasty, service is super fast and across the street from the Pantages. Great place to grab a cocktail too before a show!

Katsuya is fine. It’s the same as it always has been. The food has been consistent for years. If anything, they’ve actually shrunken the menu to only the most popular items. In this sameness though, Katsuya has gotten rather boring. It’s a little more expensive than it needs to be, but it’s always decent.

Back to LA for the second time and had to try Katsuya again. Was not disappointed. Ordered the Lobster Dynamite (this was to die for) and the Sunset Roll. Delicious. Great service. Went on a Sunday evening and it was relatively quiet.

We had a reservation for 930 and showed up on time and weren’t seated until 1010. What made it worse was the fact that they had multiple open tables available. The food is good and the ambiance is nice, but it’s not my favorite place to be for everyday dining.

This place was SO LOUD it was ridiculous. The DJ spinning tunes pumped out the volume while the patrons had to shout at the tables to be heard. It was deafening. The table next to us had a toddler screaming nonstop and none of the adults noticed. The Kobe beef we ordered was chunks of fat and gristle. Horrible. The other dishes were alright, but nothing noteworthy. We paid and got out of there. I'll stick with Nobu Matsuhisa.

I’m not a fan of where we were seated, in the smaller area seating next to the bathroom. Last visit we sat in the bigger room with the sushi bar and I felt I could have a conversation with my fiancé, this time I could barely hear the waitress. Food is still amazing and service was great.

Initial atmosphere was very stylish, although the dining room was so dark we needed our phone light to read the menu. I liked how comfy the couch seating was but the table we were at was very wide so almost impossible to talk to the person sitting across from you. Service was fine, food was fine, although for the price I wasn’t impressed with the food. For how much we ended up spending I would have expected bigger rolls, or thicker cuts of fish. A few of us went to get pizza afterwards because not everyone left feeling full. We spent $300 between 6 people, but also ran up a tab at the bar before the meal for not sure how much. I would come back for drinks, but probably not to eat again. Cocktails were excellent though!
