I chose this restaurant because I thought it would be the perfect pre-dinner meet up before seeing Hamilton across the street. My res was for 5pm, show was at 7pm.

The service was not good. Our drinks were pretty much empty the whole time. The first dish that came out, we asked for soy sauce..twice. And then it finally got brought to the table after the food was there for 10-15 minutes.

My dish didnt come out until every other person (4 other people) were already done with multiple dishes.

The overall time I was there was 1 hour, 45 minutes. Over 1 hour 15 minutes of this was waiting for food. I had to scarf it down, and hurriedly ask for a check so that I can make the show in time.

Very disappointing. This restaurant was very highly recommend and had good reviews. We are foodies in town for a short trip. The hostess girls were rude. Were talking and laughing about us when we walked in loud enough for us to hear. Sent us to the bar to wait for a table after arriving on time and there were plenty of empty tables. Our server was very nice and attentive. I hate to leave a poor review. The worst part was one of my dishes had a huge chunk of garlic. It was so big it ruined my dinner. After that I couldn’t taste or smell anything except for my breath. It was brutal. The rest of the evening was ruined because I couldn’t have a conversation with anyone without feeling self-conscious. I love garlic but not when I go to dinner and not huge cloves in my sushi.

Been here several times and I feel like thenpirtions keep getting smaller! And prices continue to increase. The Hollywood location is more of a cool vibe/scene but there are definitely better sushi spots with better value if that's what you are looking for.

After having made a reservation a week in advance, we arrived right on time on a Thursday night at 6:30PM. We had to get to a show at the Pantages. We were repeatedly told that our table would be ready soon, to no avail. After 45 minutes of panicking and waiting I walked out of the restaurant to find a fast food restaurant, so we could at least eat something before the show, at this point the manager decided to all of a sudden give us a larger table that was available empty the entire time. They had been waiting for people to get up from smaller tables, but they wouldn't and the place was packed. After wolfing down a $150 meal, we raced to the theater with indigestion. Thoroughly disappointed with the entire experience and will not be returning.

Went to Katsuya before seeing Hamilton at the Pantages Theater based on Open Table reviews and was not disappointed. Probably the absolute best hand rolls I have ever had. The Katsuya Special Roll was just OK and you can find that type of roll at almost any sushi restaurant. The Shredded Chicken Salad was to die for highly recommend this dish. Overall very enjoyable dining experience. We will be back!

We had tickets to see Hamilton at the Pantages Theatre which is across the street. There were six of us and we were given a small private room, which I did not request, but which was a great surprise and very pleasant. The service was great. We shared the Omakase Geta, the Rock Shrimp Tempura, the Wagyu Tepanyaki and the Black Cod. All of which was delicious. The prices are on the high side but well worth it for a special occasion.

We went to Katsuya after going to the pantages to see Hamilton. It was convenient and the ratings were good. I agree with the food being decent but the service is nothing special. Too crowded to get good service. Drinks came after the appetizers which is another sign of bad service to me!

Most of the food was fantastic but one dish was lacking and they took it back. Service was excellent. VERY expensive. They overbooked so we had a bit of a wait despite a reservation which was difficult because we were seeing Hamilton afterwards but their efficiency made up for it

Went before the theatre. Got in and out in plenty of time. Food was good...not great. Service was excellent. Some of the dishes that they are known for were better at other restaurants!!! But, still, it's a fun place...and really a great place to eat prior to seeing Hamilton at the Pantages...but there is better sushi elsewhere.

This was my first trip to L.A. and our friend recommended Katsuya. We’ve thanked them a lot since going there. We got there a bit early so grabbed a seat at the bar, got some cocktails which were amazing and orders a couple of appetisers.

I can safely say we’d both travel back to L.A. simply for more of the Crispy Rice with spicy tuna.

We had the lobster roll and the wagyu with foie gras. Both we utterly delicious and well worth the money.

The value was great, the portions weren’t huge but you shouldn’t expect them to be it’s a sushi based restaurant.

An awesome experience. 10/10 would recommend.

We were here to celebrate a 50th birthday and had reservations through Open Table for 7pm. They were very accommodating when we arrived early at 6:30pm and seated us in a "private room," kind of like an alcove. Food and service was great but would have preferred the music be turned down so that we didn't have to strain to hear each other over the music. Music was great, it was just a little too loud for conversation.
