Food was amazing, fast, staff were so polite. One of the best experiences in a LA restaurant. Loved the DJ playing music and food was great.

We were celebrating our anniversary and we had a amazing experience. The drinks and food were so delicious, and our service was fantastic. We had a private table reserved for us in a quiet area, but we decided to take advantage of the fantastic happy hour they have at the bar that ends at 7:30. We ordered from both the happy hour and regular menu and saved some money on some of the dishes we would’ve ordered at the table. The bar is very spacious and our servers were awesome. I knew going in to the dinner that certain dishes are already amazing, but we tried the brussels sprouts for the first time and they were the best we’ve ever had for only $7!!! The chocolate lovers desert with a custom message to celebrate our night to top the amazing night off. They have happy hour during lunch and dinner, we will be back for both soon!!!

All though the place was lovely, the value was horrible. The portions were tiny and the prices were way high. Spent $85 and we were still hungry when we left.

Love this place!!! I need to remember to ask the server to space out our order so that all of the food doesn't come out at once. I always have to have my faves! Love the Robata menu! Hamachi sushi!!!! The albacore sashimi with the fried onions is usually phenomenal, but this time the onions coagulated and stuck together in clumps. The scallop noodle special was outstanding!!! We always have great service. Can't wait til our next meal there!

Music was a little too loud but everything else was more than ideal.

I’ve been to every Katsuya in the LA area and I think that this is the worst of the best. Katsuya is my favorite Japanese restaurant chain. They are all pretty much amazing with each store doing their best serving up really good food. Sure the prices are a bit more than your typical sushi place but the quality is better and I believe that you get what you pay for.
As far as the Hollywood store goes...you’re paying a premium since it’s one of their flagship stores.
The Cali rolls are really good but they are smaller than the rolls from the other restaurants so you wind up getting another, etc. In the end, my daughter and I ordered up $153 worth of speciality rolls and assorted other things. The food was ok and the service was good. Would I ever go back to this specific store? Definitely not. The value just isn’t there.
I’m going to stick with the stores in Studio City, Encino and even Woodland Hills. I’ll be able to order more food and still pay far less than Hollywood.

The food and drinks are definitely over priced but the quality is great. The crispy rice spicy tuna at Katsuya is probably my favorite sushi dish out of anywhere.
Our server was very friendly and genuinely nice.

Always amazing. The black cod is crave-able. Bartender made me a special off the menu cocktail with cucumber and spicy vodka. Delicious!
