Food was overpriced. The wait time for some of our sushi rolls was too long. I paid $22 for a sushi roll that was half the size that I normally get. I would not return here.

Waited 15 minutes before our first and only drinks were served. We would have ordered more had we been given the opportunity. Kept bringing other tables orders to ours and leaving them until our waiter came over and got the servers to pick them up and take them to to correct tables. This happened 5 times in the course of 30 minutes.

Food as always was excellent. Waitress got busy and forgot items and instead of bringing them after being asked, removed them and brought us our check.

The service was excellent and ambiance was very nice. Food portions are quite small and quality is just okay considering the location and price.

We love Katsuya - food and service always outstanding, right by the theatre for pre-show dinner. Crispy rice tuna, miso black cod, wagyu fried rice are our faves

It was busy & noisy. The sashimi & sushi were delicious. Steak & veg tempura were nothing to rave about & carbonated drinks were all flat. But the sushi was yummy! And it's convenient to the Pantages, so that's a real plus. I'd recommend & return.

This place has really gone downhill. The sushi is mediocre at best, the portions are tiny and the prices are ridiculous. My “famous” spicy tuna on crispy rice cake was mushy. The other rolls were meh. I won’t be going back.

wonderful experience. it was our first time here. we decided to go after a matinee at the Pantages Theater. Our server was most accommodating. He Suggested several dishes to try and took us on a culinary feast. The best dish of the night was Bluefin Belly sashimi in a sauce to die for. But really everything was fresh, prepared well and presented nicely. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Also, within a block of the Pantages, they will get you to your event on time.

Katsuya was a pleasant surprise. Upon entering we were warmly greeted by the hostess and seated immediately even though we arrived an hour before our reservation. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Her recommendations of crab rolls and mochi donuts were on point. The vibe was cozy and chic. Will definitely return.

Our server was excellent! Exactly what I look for. Friendly but not intrusive. She also sent us a complimentary dessert because she knew we were torn between two! So sweet.

The black cod was the best part of our meal. The sushi was decent but not as good as the cod.

The food at Katsuya was excellent, but a bit overpriced. Service left a lot to be desired. One dish we had to ask about repeatedly, and didn't come until we nagged the manager after an hour. A second never showed, but was on the bill. We eventually got those credited. When we got the bill, we said put $50 on one card and the rest on another... and they put $50 on one and the total on the other. Correcting after the fact doesn't make up for poor service to begin with. Money does not trump the experience. Additionally, QR code menus are not guest friendly. We'll find somewhere else for before the Pantages.

When a sushi restaurant turns into a factory, it loses all the magic. Food was ok, but lookedcand felt veey much pre-prepared before our order. We went there for a special occasion and they made sure that it wasn’t.

Beautiful, stylish interior, courteous and attentive servers and most importantly, exceptionally good sushi! The server and kitchen was helpful in accommodating the fact that we were seeing a show at The Pantages and had limited time, which was really nice.

With prices escalating everywhere, I was still surprised to see the prices as high as they were here for cut roll sushi (over $20 for 5 pieces? CrAzY.) Service was OVER AND ABOVE, though.
