What happened to Katsuya?
chaotic service, we ordered starters, wagyu, black cod with some rice, sushis and sashimis. Of course, they tell you things arrive in no order but they started with... rice and did not understand why we wanted the rice with the main.
The crispy rice spicy tuna that used to be amazing years ago were burned not crispy but really burned under the tuna
and of course it was Very noisy
I have not been here for years but will never come back
We (two grandparents) gave four of our grandchildren (between the ages of 6-9) the Christmas gift of tickets to Aladdin at the Pantages, followed by dinner at Katsuya. We made our entrance feeling a bit hesitant knowing we might regret taking four young children to such a nice restaurant on a Saturday evening of a busy three day weekend. The staff at Katsuya proved us wrong from the moment we walked in to the moment we left! Our wonderful hostess (sadly, we didn’t get her name) immediately told us she had just the room for us and ushered us into a private curtained off dining room. Our grandkids thought they’d died and gone to heaven! Emily and Christopher, our two main servers, along with several others whose names we failed to recall, cheerfully treated us like royalty. The food was fabulous! Our 8 year old dreamily stated, “This is like a dream come true.” We dined at Katsuya with an all adult party of 10 last fall and we were not treated any more enthusiastically or professionally than we were on this visit with four young children. Hats off to you, Katsuya and thank you to that wonderful hostess, Emily and Christopher!
Order the baked crab hand rolls.
Great food, great service. Only thing I wasn’t too keen on was that it seemed like they made their roles a bit smaller for Valentine’s Day. I have been there on a normal night and the rolls didn’t feel that small to me. But on Valentine’s Day they were pretty tiny. Again though amazing sushi and awesome people working there.
The food was phenomenal, we had to book a reservation well in advance, but it was worth it.
We got a drink at the bar. The first thing we noticed was it was very dirty feeing all the menus looked very used and had food stains on the pages. It seemed very chaotic inside with a lot of open tables. When we sat down we were served quickly and the food came out very quickly. The spicy tuna crispy rice was great the other rolls and chicken we had were okay but we should have just stuck to the spicy tuna crispy rice because it was the best thing. We got the check and the whole thing seemed like it started and ended in a flash normally I would enjoy that but it was Valentine’s Day and I would have liked to linger more with my date. It was also not cheap. Overall the delivery needs some work and the ambiance and cleanliness need some work to make it worth the price. I would not go back.
It was first time but it won’t be the last.
I went here on a date and really enjoyed the food and the service! The ambiance was a little noisy but, considering everything, wasn't bad enough to mark down for! Overall I enjoyed!
Way overpriced sushi and they had a DJ so it’s like trying to eat inside of a nightclub. My friends and I were shouting at each other just catch up
Nice place - good service - but overpriced for what it was.
Great place to meet and talk.
The food was good, but I expected better. The sushi tasted a bit fishy but the chicken teriyaki was quite delicious. There was an extremely loud group who would literally scream every time another member of their group arrived. It was so absurd that the restaurant didn't ask them to quiet down. After a bit, an employee came to our table and apologized for the other group (which was nice). Apparently one of guests was a sibling of an Eagle's player (they'd just won the superbowl) which explained why they allowed them to be so loud and inappropriate. I'm not the type to care about noise levels, but this really ruined the entire experience.
The sushi and service was great. Made a reservation for 6:30pm, but we got there pretty early around 5:45pm and they sat us anyway. Location is in the middle of Hollywood so it isn't the best place to walk around after. Only went because we were going to the Pantages. I would avoid the drinks, too sweet not enough alcohol. Would maybe go again if I was only in the area willing to pay a lot for food...
Yo patty still hungry
One of the "hippest" places in Hollywood without "hipsters". Fun, loud, great food.
