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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
