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.

The crowed was scary, almost dangerous. At the valet we thought it was going to be a shoot out

We had the Osaka’s with Kirk. It was a very memorable meal, exceptionally prepared. Kirk, needs to be in NYC on the fast track to a Michelin star.

The food was great and the ambiance is what I've come to expect, loud music and a buzz of energy, not in a bad way but if you want a quiet intimate spot this ain't it. It's a good crowd of people, good wait staff and good food.

The heaters are too hot outside. Too many of them going at once. But the food and service was phenomenal.

It was a beautiful night and we thoroughly enjoyed Katana's ambience. The margarita was superb! However, for all that money we spent, we were still a bit hungry. So, I would say the restaurant may want to offer some app dishes that are affordable.

Hostesses need more training. We eat out everyday because we don’t cook and this place left us a bad taste

Service was very good. Food is very good as well but insanely overpriced!! A skewer or small plate of beef for $32 that was basically appetizer size, with just a few bites. Mushroom and corn robata insanely expensive too. They must have jacked the price for New Year's Eve, which to me isn't fair because same food, different day; and not like it was completely booked.

The service and ambience was great and what made this experience was that the food was absolutely outstanding! Miso cod by far was my absolute favorite though every other dish was equally as good- the wagyu preparations, the sauces, the fluke sashimi were also very very good.

The food, as always, was great, as was the service. Because it was a Sunday evening during the holidays, the outdoor dining area was less than half full, so the ambience was relaxed. The restaurant still gave off a cool vibe, but in a much more understated way than on a typical weekend night. A+ in all respects.

It was a great experience. Since we are a bit of food junkies loving Japanese and Asian cross over we are quite experienced, but we were amazed by the sashimi (especially the yellow tail was something not anticipated). The rolls were great. It was as a summary amazing!
Thank you.

Great place but was quite empty at 9 phon a Saturday. Felt like that tasting menu was good but could have included a dessert. Good service just not as happening as usual.

We had a nice evening at Katana’s. They were very accommodating. We sat outside with an amazing view of their outdoor patio. The heated lamps kept us nice and warm. Our waitress was very accommodating and super nice. The food was pretty good and came out really fast. At the end of the night they brought out a birthday cake courtesy of the restaurant. They even brought a vegan option for some of my vegan friends. We had a very nice evening. I will be returning soon.

My son and I were in LA for vacation and we’re luck to get a spot at Katana.
We were quickly seated to a nice table. The tables are close to each other but still felt private.
The waiter was knowledgeable and professional. The food was amazing, we ordered the skewers from the grill menu and had the beef, chicken and seabass and it was all amazingly delicious. We also got two sushi rolls that were great.
Would definitely go back if in LA.

It was dead and thorough out al the tests I’ve been there it’s been the most quiet and just dead! Besides that the service sucked! Even though there were so many open tables we barely got the server to come ask us for more drinks and food! We didn’t even get a dessert menu. It was awful

Got out of car with date waiting for Valet. No one came. Walked around and saw a valet sign up a driveway marked parking. (last time there was a valet at street. Saw a valet up hill around 15 ft away and asked him if he could park the car. He said I would have to pull in up the hill. Did so and saw no sign that said the restaurant name or where to go. called my date and told her I'd meet her at the front desk. she walked up 20 steps, while I walked around looking for unmarked door. Once inside I asked if they knew how to make a zombie. They said they would ask , then bought me a drink. Not a Zombie! Some thrown together sour garbage. I didn't ask if they could guess! Then ordered a lobster steak special...which came with two small pieces on a skewer. Dinner was 400 dollars. Went for a sandwich on my way home! too loud to talk or hear. Nice place, but very forgetable food and drink. And way over priced.

Came here for a birthday celebration. Honestly don’t know why they bother even taking reservations from opentable or ask if there is a special occasion.
