    Great! We enjoyed our food and our waiter was very attentive. It was a cool vibe and a great great start to our concert night.

    I visited Katsuya upon arriving to LA for a business trip. I was looking for some quick but delicious sushi and they did not disappoint. Each dish I ordered was delicious. I recommend the spicy tuna & sake sashimi. The restaurant was quiet, the staff were extremely attentive and kind. After I signed my check and was about to walk out, the chef approached me with some nigiri he made to thank me for coming in - and I guess that he liked that I ordered multiple courses! If I’m ever back in the area I will definitely be returning.

    For a fine dining establishment there are certain things you come to expect. When I stepped away from the table, I expected to come back to a refolded napkin for me. Obviously, not a big deal. But its these little things that make the overall experience over the top for me. I still gave 5 stars overall, but if a manager happens to read this, I hope the feedback is received with the love it was intended with.

    For such a big restaurant chain, we were surprised that they would be out of sauvignon blanc and iced green tea. It was 6pm on a Friday night and not crowded yet. Our server was super friendly and sweet, but she brought out black tea and didn't tell us that they were out until my friend questioned if it was black/green tea. She did say they were out of SB and out of one Rose brand, but had the other. And when she came out, they did have the Rose that was out. It was just weird. We didn't know what was happening. Then our food came out. The sushi rice was hard and really cold. Shishito peppers and eggplant skewers were good. The mushroom skewer didn't taste like it was grilled or had seasoning. We'll never return.

    Way too expensive for the quality of the fish. Food was prepared in advance. So you get your rolls and sashimi salads in 2 minuets like an all you can eat sushi joint. Very small portions of whatever you order. In 20 minuets we were done. Ridiculously expensive !
