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

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.

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!

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
