Food was not good and poor quality
Our family visited LA for one weekend vacation to celebrate daughter’s birthday. On the way back to San Diego we decided to stop at Katsura to finish our short trip by lunching at that high rating restaurant. Reservations for lunch we made in advanced.
Tha restaurant was completely booked, but we were lucky to find a spot.
When we arrived the restaurant was full of people, but a server invited us to the nice made ready for us table.he was attentive to our orders and very polite when was verbiage us.
Our lunch was very tasty and dishes beautifully designed.
At the end of lunch we have free birthday desert for my daughter, very tasty Japanese ice cream, which we shared.
We left the restaurant in good mood and good memories about the birthday lunch.
We appreciate the stuff of the restaurant for helping us having good memories about wonderful time in Katsura - L.A.Live.
Very little to share except I thought the rolls were small compared to other sushi places and the drinks were a bit higher priced than necessary. It’s also DTLA, which has its pros and cons. Parking is often challenging and very expensive without validation.
What started off as a bad dinner due to the lack of attentiveness from our waitress was turned around by a server with excellent customer service skills. It appears that our server Miseal N. was able to read our body language and came to the rescue. He was able to turn what started off as poor service and turn it into the quality of service we expected. The food was good as always as were the drinks. Will be returning thanks to Miseal.
This was a disaster. The service was so bad, and I don't even get it. It wasn't busy, but I would say the waiter was not only rude but also absent. All that being said, the sushi is not good. I will be honest, my standard is high, I am not a watered down sushi eater. I love me some great nigiri, fish fresh and authentic. I knew that was not this restaurant going in, but still the sushi was barely edible. We didn't eat all of it. If you are in this area need some place to eat, I would try any of the other local restaurants and eat sushi somewhere else. LA has great sushi!
Horrible. I should call corporate because the manager on schedule “speaks with his hands” (his words not mine) and put his hands on me when I kindly asked if we could have our server check in. We were wanting to order more food. No customer service from the server is a direct reflection of management. I would suggest even pulling the camera film. When I walked back to the table, and I told my husband, he went to the “manager”. The Manager then says “I speak with my hands and I didn’t mean to touch your wife and I will take care of your whole meal”. The so-called manager also said that my husband told the server he was drunk and didn’t remember what we ordered which never happened we were waiting to have the server place the order which was never even placed in the first place. We told him that we just wanted to have proper service and not feel such aggression. At that point, we did not even want to order any more food. I anticipate that they would spit in it at by the way they were behaving. Then “manager” told my husband to take this outside in a tone that implied it was a fight. It was truly bizarre. I would stay away from this location at all costs. I frequent the location in a Glendale and have never had an issue. This was ghetto for a lack of a better term.
Fantastic server, food, and cocktails! Super fun for a friend gathering! It was a girls weekend made extra special by Katsuya!
We appreciate the level of service and fabulous food offerings even during these difficult times of Covid aftermath.
They went above and beyond! We will return and suggest this restaurant to all of our friends!
Absolutely amazing. I dined here Friday, Saturday and Sunday and pretty much ordered the same thing. I’ve been coming to Katsuya for many years and I am never disappointed.
Everything was great
They seem to focus on rushing customers and getting people in and out, rather than providing good service.
Very good food. Get the waygu gyoza
We used to frequent this location quite a bit. They just re-opened for dine-in. Simply put, they’re not ready. Waaaay below standard in all aspects. Give it a few weeks.
Great food and nice service!Enjoyed a lot before going to Lakers game!
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!!!
