The best dining experience in Los Angeles!!! Amazing food, amazing location, and amazing vibes. The executive sushi chef made me a custom lobster sushi roll and Eric our server was more than accommodating! Cant wait to visit again!

Food was way overpriced and nothing special. Definitely not worth the price. Friendly service and outside patio were only positives.

Jerry Seinfeld comedy is still applicable almost 30 years later. Made a reservation for 10:15, arrived at 10:10 and was invited to wait at the overcrowded bar for 45 minutes because 'they were running behind schedule.'

“See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don’t know how to hold the reservation and that’s really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody can just take them.”
— Jerry Seinfeld

Made reservations, told had to be there on time. Got there 15 mins early to check in even was told only had a 2 hour block for dinner cause it was a special holiday. Waited at the bar and it was 30 mins past reservation time and no one came by to get us, so I decided to go back to the host checkin and was told our table is ready. Well it wasn’t and we ended up having to wait another 15 mins by the time we sat down it was 45 mins passed our reservation time. Thankfully I planned the dinner early enough that we were not late to our next destination because that would have been a complete disaster. Food was good as usual but the lobster roll was horrendous. Overcooked and was mush. Ate two bites and left the rest.

Everything was amazing except we went on Vday and the kitchen was running behind. We were not seated until an hour after our reservation time. Aside from that everything was amazing. Food was to orgasmic.

I made reservations at Katana for my boyfriends birthday, which is also Valentines Day. I received a phone call the week prior confirming my reservation and was told there was a 2 hour dining limit etc and I confirmed and was honestly impressed with the customer service. We arrived 15 minutes early to our reservation because we expected it to be busy due to the holiday. The restaurant was packed, you couldn’t stand anywhere without getting shoved by either customers or by the staff. After checking in, we stood up against the wall because there was nowhere else to stand waiting to be seated. An hour went by so I decided to get a drink. I managed to be seen at the bar and after 15 mins got served a drink. Shortly after, one of the chefs walking be ran into me and knocked my champagne glass over, looked back and didn’t apologize nor ask to get me another drink to replace the one he knocked over. Ok fine, we continue to wait. TWO HOURS past our reservation, we got seated. Overall, the food was good but I would never come back due to the experience. This restaurant needs to learn time management especially on big holidays, the place was a mess. The staff should be trained for instances like this. First and last time coming here. Horrible.

They overbooked the restaurant and we had to wait for an hour for service. Took us 15 mins just to be able to check in. No standing room while we were waiting so we had to wait outside. Many upset guests! Over 45 mins to get our table in the end.

Excellent food and once we were seated, the service was excellent. However, our reservation was for 8 pm and we were not seated until 9:10pm. Was held to the reservation by a $150 deposit ($75 per person)...

Made “reservations” @ 8pm, ended up waiting an hour on Vday for our table which we ended up leaving because we didn’t want to waste our special night.

Katana was a wonderful experience! The food was excellent, the ambiance was a vibe, and the servers/management were hospitable. The only negative was the unknown up-charge that our server didn’t let us know about for our meal. My group of 5 all got the chefs special which included the lobster, 2 “jumbo” shrimp, 2 scallops, and mash potatoes. Our server told us that if we wanted we can get all shrimp or fried rice however failed to tell us that it was an up-charge. We selected the fried rice and all shrimp. The way he explained the options seemed as if it was included in the price When we received the check it was almost $100 more from what we thought the total would be. This was fine we just wished we would have been told of the up-charge instead of being unfortunately surprised. That was disappointing but other than that we loved Katana!

What can do say, hands down some of the best sushi I’ve ever had. We were there for Valentines and chose the pre-fix menu, everything and I mean everything was delicious, perfectly prepared and amazing. The hamachi appetizer melts in your mouth. The halibut sashimi was like butter and every roll we tried... perfection! Definitely try Katana if you haven’t yet.

This place is great, great food , good customer service (it got better as the night went along) , how ever it was a bit too loud and felt as if i was touching elbows with the other party next to me.. might of been just because it was valentines day; but the tables were way too close, they were very thoughtful handed my lady a rose as we walked in and had our table ready in a timely manner (even though we were 20 mins behind), we sat outside and the heaters were on at the right temp keeping everyone cozy. The waitresses and the waiters were nice didn't rush us at all gave us plenty of time and cared for the customers, Food wise the white lotus roll and my favorite dessert the creme brulee cheesecake are to die for!! I'd definitely come back!

The food at KATANA is absolutely delicious. It is one of our favorite restaurants. My only suggestion would be to not use such a massive cube of ice in the cocktail. It makes the cocktail price very OVER priced.

The wait was quite long. Our reservation was for 9 pm and we were not seated until 9:45. The ambiance, however, was great and the DJ/music was really good. The sushi was quite good, but the hot appetizers were lukewarm/cold. Also, their signature spicy tuna on crispy rice was cold. I’ve been to katana many times, and I wonder if they are stating to slip a bit. Overall, it was good but not as great as it could have been.

Used to come here often. Food and ambience used to be great. Went downhill BIG TIME! Food quality on the robata wasn’t as good, TOTALLY OVERPRICED, sushi was disgusting, sent it back. Ambience? Hood rats and tourists. Sooooo bad.
