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.

This is my second time at Katana. I'm from New York, but now when I visit LA, I need to come. The fish is so very good. And I really like the atmosphere. It's on the fancier side, but not too expensive. They do have a dress code, so be warned. Highly recommend though.

Food was authentic and tasty though 1 chicken robata skewer was tough; it was all cartilage. Manager did replace it. Tables are too close with very little room to maneuver. The place was so dark you couldn’t see what u are eating and too loud to carry on conversations. Asked server and management to turn the sound down but it was useless.

Mitchell is a very good/attentive waiter and was very kind and intuitive re gluten options. Food was very good and the prix-fixe menu is superb as was the restaurant week menu. Ambiance is really cool/unique vibe. Like the outdoor dining. Music speakers could/should be more strategically placed as certain tables are right up against speakers that make talking/hearing (even outside) difficult. Love this place.

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.
