The waiter was overwhelmed. Not the best service.
The outside seating was pretty cold even with heaters on
I have been a customer of Katsuya and izakaya for years . This is NOT the same . It’s a tourist trashy low quality version and the company should look into who they hand off their name to
Don’t be fooled by the name. The service was laughable. We couldn’t even get soy sauce brought to the table after 15 mins of asking 3 different servers . The we found out gratuity was included and that way they don’t care . And the food was not the same quality either. Save your hard earned money. The prices are sky high. Go to the other pubs and restaurants at LA live . They are much better
Eat dinner before a game
Great Food and Service. Recommend the outside seating as it is quieter.
Always a good place before or after a game.
Great staff too
Way too much food. Did the PP deal. And service was slow. Had to get our own soy sauce bowls. Slow service turned 90 min lunch into two hours.
Fab dinner. Wagyu ribeye did not disappoint.
Pre hockey game dinner
I think for a sushi bar their menu is very limited , however what we were able
To order was very good and high quality
AMAZING food! Never had a better Gyoza!!!!! Everything was delicious!
Loved the spicy tuna crispy rice. The wait staff was awesome.
We always go to Brentwod Katsuya and love the food and liveliness of the restaurant. The down town one was totally dead and service was very mediocre!
Not going back there for sure!
Our server was phenomenal! So helpful in selecting the best choice of food for the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
It was a busy night and we had a large party. It took a while to get our food and we had to remind our wait staff about our drink order. I think one of the servers mentioned that the other was in training? We will be back - love the location to Staples Center. Best foot was not put forward for this dinner.
Our server was Carlos who was prompt and had good command of the menu. Make a reservation, otherwise there is a long wait on the night of an event. The fish is all fresh. I enjoy this place, when it's not super busy. Food pacing can be long...
Too expensive… Sushi chef had no personality at all… The sushi for the value was terrible…The roles were tiny and just looked generic nothing special about them at all. I go to a hole in the wall by my house and it's 10 times better at half the price and twice as big on the rolls. I will not be coming back to your location
Great food and great service
Pastry chef !!!! Outstanding spin in chocolate strawberries
The food was amazing and the service was incredible!!
Lovely staff and great recommendations from the chef. We had different dietary requests at our table and all were met and yummy too!!!
Great fast service before the Laker game, I highly recommend
Excellent sushi choices!
Everything was good and food was good as well. When I made the reservation I added that it was a birthday and received a confirmation that dessert would be provided but waiter didn’t bring anything out
Great food and awesome staff. Really friendly and helpful
Family time they love sushi. Everything was great and service was super fast today considering they had lots of people out there for Kobe memorial.
We come here for the Lakers games and it’s always great
We booked this for my husband’s birthday a few weeks ago- what an incredible night to be there when the first Lakers game was taking place next door. Incredible food and incredible service.
We went there to watch a Laker game. There are several TVs, but it is not ideal for watching a game intently. The food was pretty good! If you want good sushi without the LA Live experience go here. Don’t go here if you want to watch a game. The game will be on, but it’s not super easy to see TVs and you can’t here anything. SERVICE WAS INCREDIBLE, very patient, good people.
Quick service, quality food and presentation. Can't wait to go again, next time at an event LA Live
Katsuya has consistently good food and beverages, but what really stands out at Katsuya LA LIve is the service! Everyone from hosts to bartenders to servers is exceptionally friendly and attentive.
Service was great! Food was just okay though for the price. Small pieces and quantity of sushi for high price
The restaurant was almost empty and we were seated in a very high traffic area, when I asked they said there were reservations which I had made many days before
Food was served sporadically no plates
The fish quality was questionable. Two of the fish on the sushi platter had skin on them, altho the chef said one wasn’t skin, it was part of the fish. Regardless both were chewy and not enjoyable at all. I believe this Katsuya is not up the quality of other locations. We won’t return.
This was our New Year’s eve dinner I made our reservations at 9:45 got to the restaurant at 9:30 and got sat at our table . waitress rushed over to throw our menus on the table and told us that our reservations were too late and then we were to hurry they had last call and would only serve us one drink???? We tried to make the most of this we ordered three drinks each and our dinner we were told that we needed to leave by 11:15 and we did I would never go back to this restaurant I would never send anyone that I know back to this restaurant absolutely the worst organization I’ve ever seen I have ever seen in a restaurant . Not once did I see a manager or was asked if everything was OK Rush rush rush take our money and get out I hope this place closes down
Showed up for reservation 30 minutes early and was told the kitchen would be closing soon in 15 minutes. Also out of 4 items we tried to order.
New Year’s Eve
This Katsuya is nice but we prefer the menu at other locations. It is also much more expensive than the other locations we are familiar with. Certain items are not offered such as brown rice (only white), tepannyaki, corn tempura and free tea. Sushi was good but again, more expensive for the exact same items and quality of other locations.
