Everything was phenomenal except the interior may be moldy or something because my nose just plugged up within minutes of being sat down. Possibly even from poor ventilation or the upholstered seating that needs to be deep cleaned. Our server Emily was sensational and the food and drinks were splendid!

Horrible couldn’t even get a table over an hour after I got there kept asking but waitresses and manager had no answer besides and I quote “we asking people to leave but they don’t want to”. We left after waiting for more than an hour, it was so long and had to pay $20 for the valet for no reason. Never putting a foot in this place that used to be good but became a ghetto circus.

After waiting an hour past our reservation time for a table, we were seated at a table inside (I requested outside and I know they can’t guarantee- but we waited an hour), the table barely was big enough for our party and the hostess informed us that we hd to be out of the table in an hour (what?!?!? We just waited an hour!!!!) Decoded to leave and ended up going to another restaurant.

The person who checks you in was not respectful toward us.
Also, we were over charged on our drinks at the bar before our table was ready. It couldn’t have been a mistake. We each had one drink. Check your bill.

The music is insanely loud. You can’t even hear each other from 2” away. Why make it sooooo loud? Does the DJ think everyone should spend $400 on dinner and just listen to him. Bro, turn it down a little bit.

The meal started out really good. Our server was excellent . The food was tasty and we all had a variety of foods. At the end we ordered an Oreo cookie cheese cake. The dessert was served and we tried a bite when we realized the wrong dessert was served and it had peanuts in it. One person in our party had a mild peanut allergy and immediately started to feel it. When we told the server she apologized and said the correct dessert would be brought. She also said she’d have a manager come over.

When the manager Jasmine came over she apologized and in the same breath said we should have said there was a nut allergy because they use nuts in everything and prepare it differently when they know. Looking at the menu there is no mention of the extensive use of nuts and the halfway apology was very rudely taken. As an upscale place I would expect more from management. Please be aware if you have nut allergies as they don’t ask you.

This experience was amazing, 5 stars because all the servers were diligent and attentive. We never had to call for a server when out drinks were done because they would be there right away. The food portion was small but it made up in flavor. The lamb was to die for ! The popcorn chicken and meat skewers were also flavorful. All the food was great no complaints ! will definitely be back.

Food was cold. The “feast” had one roll and it was a tempura shrimp roll. Tasted like it was sitting around. The help tried to push their specialty cocktails too many times. Couple years ago I loved this place. Very disappointing

I have loved katana and haven’t been in over 2 years! The waiter was amazing, he was so on top of it and very friendly. Now the food; the quality of food they serve and the portions have totally changed. The spicy tuna tastes like cardboard, the $22 yellowtail jalapeño was drenched in sauce and tasted SO fishy. The soufflé was ok, alcohol drinks were super weak and I’ve priced. Our bill was Over $200. Overall poor quality of food, you’re paying for the name on sunset. Go to the bar and order your drinks direct from the bartender, skip the food. I will not be Back!
