The food was ok. Salad was incredibly overdressed. Sushi came out very quickly, but like almost too quickly to where it’s likely all pre sliced.

We sat right by the entrance and every time they went to seat a new table they yelled right in our ears what I assume is “welcome” in Japanese. Definitely a distraction during an expensive meal.

Our server was nice and attentive.

Unlikely to be back.

Good is overrated. Everything is soaked in soya sauce even the sashimi. It’s mainly targeted for western audiences that may not have been to Japan. Some dishes are great.

Server keep forgetting the ginger and wasabi we requested including the drink we ordered. He lacks attention to detail.

The miso soup was bland and you can tell it’s from a packet. Overall overpriced for what been served.

Food was good, drinks were disappointing and service left a lot to be desired. It took 20 minutes for the server to even come greet us and take our drink order. An hour after ordering we still hadn’t received one of the plates. Ended up canceling the order and leaving. Despite enjoying the sushi we would not dine-in again.

First time trying Katsuya...very impressed! Took my family before seeing Hamilton at the Pantages. Perfect location, we were lucky to get a reservation (even on a Tuesday). Ordered the Chef's Sushi combo for two. Almost too much to eat. Super fresh fish, beautifully presented. All the other dishes were spot on as well. And I highly recommend the deserts!!! Not inexpensive, but a good value for the quality and location. Kid friendly. Definitely going back...

Definitely one of the best sushi restaurants in Los Angeles. So much better than the overhyped sushi places we all hear about. The food was excellent service was fast and attentive the staff was really nice and friendly. The Korean short rib was unreal and we really enjoyed the special spicy tuna roll.

Beautiful atmosphere. Sat at the sushi bar because that was the only place open. They need to remove chairs as it is much too cramped. One of us was sitting on the end and was able to move his chair, that's the only way we were able to fit comfortably. We are not big people.

Always a really positive experience and wonderful food. Don't like the digital menu at all. Spent most of the time looking for rolls instead of enjoying family at the table. Looking at the menu on a small phone was very frustrating.

Food was very good. I eat a plant based diet but my dinner partner does not and we both had plenty to eat and left satisfied.
Service was quick, efficient and extremely courteous. We were pre-theater dining and no issue with time.
Did feel the noise level as the place filled up was a notch higher than one might like for private conversation but not a big problem.
Will definitely return.
P.s. Also the wine we had by the glass was better than I’ve had at most places when you don’t specify. Thumbs up.

We were pressed for time to see West Side Story. When greeted at the table they immediately asked if we were seeing a show at The Pantages. Sharing our agenda, they were respectful, lightning fast with food preparation/cocktails and overall amazing.

The restaurant was able to provide a private space for a dinner business meeting. Being in a quieter area allowed us to discuss and complete paperwork while enjoying a delicious array of items. The food was served as soon as it was prepared, so we received an appetizer, then another, and eventually had our five items on the table. The server, Frankie, kept checking back with us to make sure we liked the food, if we needed any additional food or beverages, and knowing we had to complete business by a certain time, she offered the bill as soon as she was certain we would not be ordering additional items. This allowed us to pay the bill early, so as soon as business was over, we could exit. We will come here again - next time to just relax and enjoy the food and drinks.

We had made a reservation for dinner before the show to make it a great night out. Although we arrived early, the restaurant was able to accommodate us immediately and we settled in for a fantastic dinner. Our service was excellent and our server, Mario, was attentive to an allergy and caught a dish that came out before it could be consumed and ruin the evening with an allergic reaction. Everything was fantastic, and the only lower point of the evening was being seated in the smaller room which was dark, a bit noisy and not in the main dining area. Overall, I strongly recommend to anyone who wants a great spot with delicious food and cocktails in Hollywood!

It appeared that our server was either inexperienced or a flake. We’d have to get another server find him and bring him to our table. He would take one person’s order and then disappear, and then come back and take another person‘s order and disappear. Overall the whole night was discombobulated, and we couldn’t enjoy the food. I’ve been to the Katsuya in Brentwood as well as Glendale, and never had this kind of experience.
