It was perfect
Everything was wonderful but it was hard to have a conversation because the music was so LOUD.
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.
The new lunch menu is simple and idiot proof. Cheers
Great fast service (we let them know we were trying to get to a show at the Pantages), and every kind of sushi we ordered was excellent.
Love it here. Spicy tuna on crispy rice, my favorite!
Our server Brace was awesome and his recommendations for sake were perfect. We opted for the omakase menu which was a bit pressed for timing because we were catching a show. Brace made sure we were on track and we got to our show in perfect time even with the multi-course experience. Perfect service, perfect evening as a result.
First they seated us right away.
After that The waitress greeted us. Ask
For a drink order. Did not ask us any questions about the menu or if we had any questions about the menu. Maybe when we were ordering she/he should make suggestions. Or at least clarify what I am ordering so when a little dollop of meat shows up that cost $50 with no rice that we either might want to add on or change the order. Information is King. Seeing that it was a gift for our date night I just let it go.
The end of it all very disappointed.
We were told it was happy hour and never given a happy hour menu or told that it applied only if we sat at the bar Before we ate and received the bill. We were very upset at the lack of communication and we spoke with the manager who only gave us two items 1/2 price. We would have gladly sat at the bar. Not okay!
Food is always amazing. There’s something for everyone in the family.
Music too loud and too specific of genre which entire family disliked.
Service was adequate. Seemed more like college kids vs professional servers- which i expected latter for price/quality of food.
Very expensive but always excellent. We go every month before theater.
We were really happy with our pre-Pantages meal here. Delicious sashimi, Cod was done perfectly, and our shrimp tempura roll was awesome. We ordered the Wagyu fried rice...it is definitely over-priced and easily a "miss"....more rice than beef, and just not that great. Our wanna-be actress waitress was also a "miss"...she didn't wan't to offer suggestions or provide service. Other than those two drawbacks, we had a great, easy meal, with fabulous mochi for dessert and top-notch seafood selections.
It was a good experience. It was my 1st time there and our waitress recommended dishes that did not disappoint. Will definitely go again.
Great team lunch. Don’t sleep on the robata options. Reasonably priced sushi for a very nice ambiance and service. Very happy!
The serve was the sweetest!
The Best Japanese Restaurant , the closet & best place to eat if you are going to the Pantages‼️
We stopped in Katsuya before a screening nearby and were absolutely delighted with the decor, service and food. I have been to other locations but this one is really special!
Unique atmosphere, friendly service and outstanding meal!
Good experience. I sat in a booth in main room. Less noisy and not as tight as other room. They changed my table to meet my original opentable request for here. Food was good. Service great. Nice upscale hip ambiance.
We love eating at Katsuya! The food is always delicious, great service, and great ambiance!
Dark and cozy, but very loud! The food was excellent and the service was fast and welcoming!
Good food... noisiest restaurant I’ve been in.
Too noisy. Over priced. They are in a rush to turn your table. Way too many other better restaurants in LA.
Our server was amazing. Super kind and efficient.
After Pantages theater
Great bass fish
Menu items did not reflect what was on the site. The people seating us where rude. Manager was good.
Beautiful restaurant, great service, and the food was amazing! Will return for sure!
Our hotel recommended us to dine here and we were not disappointed!
Just picking up a quick bite for lunch. Quick service, good ambiance and food. Would repeat.
This is where my boyfriend of 3 years now went on our first date and I took him here for his birthday this year and we had a blast! I love Katsuya Hollywood so much and will keep coming back!
Amazing sushi! Very clean environment. The brussel sprouts are to die for!!!
Put in the reservation notes that it was our anniversary and they made sure to have a very great table for us to enjoy. They were very attentive to my wife’s allergy and everyone was very pleasant.
Only down side was the bartender getting our premeal cocktail seemed very new and really didn’t know the bar all that well.
Website is out of date. The online menu is no longer available. Big disappointment. Not coming back.
We had three children with us and were still made to feel very welcome.
Great dining experience, ambiance and food/presentation.
Wasn’t the best place to throw a birthday dinner because the ambiance wasn’t very party like but a great last minute place. The food was delicious and the waiter was extremely accommodating.
