If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would!
Exceptional service, drinks were great and the food is outstanding.


•The ambiance is perfect; soft lighting and good music.

•The staff is absolutely beautiful, each person was kind and helpful.

•All the dishes were coursed perfectly. Each item was plated perfectly down to the dessert. The food was full of flavor and served at the perfect temperature. I highly recommend the yellowtail jalapeño and the lamp chops.

If I could here every night for dinner, I would!

The service was absolutely horrible from the host. Our waitress was great, the host helping us get seated made us wait 45 minutes after she said it will be a couple minutes wait. After Approaching her and asking her when we’ll be seated she ignored us. We weren’t seated until we had to confront a manager. Dinner reservations were for 10 pm, we got there at 9:50, we weren’t seated until 10:40.

Service was initially slow. Drinks were great, only got the fusion twice but that was great. Dishes were very hit or miss. Wagyu goyza was definitely the best. Pork belly and tsukune yakitori skewers were good. Ribeye one was overcooked and bland. The shrimp scallop sizzling robata dish was pretty good but a little too sour and didn't come out sizzling anymore. Uni sushi was pretty good for the uni but the nori seaweed wrap was subpar and chewy. Jidori chicken was slightly overcooked. Got a free lava cake due to the service which was good. Overall pretty subpar for the price and service at first, but I do like the spot and would come back for maybe just drinks and the gyoza. Parking is half off with validation.

Katana never disappoints. It's the memories and the vibe that make the high prices worth it for me, food is always good but not so amazing that it should be that expensive, so you're definitely paying for the location and ambiance. To take someone somewhere special or to impress someone with a great business dinner meeting, Katana is the place. I don't go there weekly but I always look forward to going there when I do get a chance to dine there. Management and staff has always been top shelf. Roku and BOA are great sister restaurants as well. BOA actually has some of the better steaks in LA and is a bit less expensive than other steak houses that have slide off their game in the past few years.

Four of my friends and I celebrated two of our birthdays. We had a slight wait for our table but it was a Friday night, the restaurant was super busy and we were slightly late to our reservation - so we waited at the bar for a short time, ordered yummy drinks and were shown to our table outside. This was my second time to Katana and everything from the ambiance to the food is amazing, and I think this might be my favorite sushi restaurant in Hollywood. We wrote a note on our booking that it was a birthday dinner and we were kind of expecting our server to have some sort of notice of that, but we had to tell her at the end of our dinner and then she sent out little dessert with a sparkler. Overall we loved the food, the outside seating area, the service was good and we had a great time!

Always good - the food is outstanding. The service is impeccable. The outdoor seating is so very nice on a pleasant summer evening. I don't go too often, but whenever I do, I always enjoy it. The only drawbacks are it's a bit on the pricey side, and getting there is a challenge.

The food was delectable and our server Susie was amazing! She was informative, attentive, polite and overall a rock star! The rest of the staff also made sure that our table was cleared from any empty plates and that we had clean utensils at all times. My party and I felt welcomed and had a wonderful experience at Katana.

The servers constantly forgot to bring dishes and the response was “oh I’m sorry I’ll get right on that” ... really? You were supposed to get right on it 30 min ago when it was ordered ... three sushi rolls were completely forgotten and brought out after DESERT! This is unacceptable and ridiculous!
We are regulars at katana but haven’t been in a year and this was a shock as service has declines dramatically...

And the sushi rolls were very mediocre to say at best!

The fried whole fish is amazing as always

We went in for the first time, because I heard a lot of good things about the place. Food was excellent. Music was great. Ambiance was great. I had requested outdoor seating, in which I know it’s not always guaranteed, but that shouldn’t be an option if I’m not guaranteed to be seated outside. Our reservation was at 10:30pm, we got there at 10:28. One of the receptionists was extremely rude. She told us to wait 20 minutes for our table. So we waited 30 minutes instead, still I understand it was busy & we didn’t mind waiting. I went back to the girl to see when our table would be ready, she said we will call you when it’s ready, in the RUDEST way possible. So the other receptionist realized how rude it was & she told me to wait a minute to figure it out. Within a few minutes she told me our table was ready. The host took us to our table & as we’re walking behind the host to be seated, she seats two people down at OUR table. She looked confused & said sorry I thought that was your party as well. I was annoyed at this point. She made us wait in a corner while everyone was eating, she came back & sat us in a corner. The food took long to come out, again, we didn’t mind it was really busy. Overall, I had an ok experience, I just didn’t like how unorganized it was for the first time of me going there. I absolutely loved the food & drinks!
