Treated like crap. Had a reservation and had to constantly check on status. Told by manager they had a VIP and it would be another half hour. I made a reservation and should have been treated with more respect.

We received poor service. Our waiter was not attentive to us and I had to call the manager Chad. Then a second Manager was sent over named Peter who tried to smooth things over. This experience reflects the fact that management doesn’t really care about quality.

It was great. Only one problem, It was hard to read menu, Katana needs something to do with this, for example some special lights for reading menu.

This will probably be my last time at this restaurant the service was awful. We were sat down in the patio and I requested to have the heater turned off since it was producing extreme heat and I had just a facial procedure which requires me to stay away from heat etc.. the manger comes over in a very unpleasant tone and says that his guest are cold so will be turning on the heater when this particular heater was on my table. He then offers to move us to another table and had a very sarcastic attitude as to my condition stating that he was moving us so my face wouldn’t “melt off” I have never received this kind of treatment at any restaurant I’ve ever been and I will make sure to not recommend this restaurant moving forward

Incredible staff, expert management, and phenomenal food. I wish I lived in LA so I could go back sooner. Chad brings out the best in his team who are some of the best in the business. Cocktails, sushi, grill, desserts are all perfection. It’s a cool chic environment where anyone can feel at home. Bravo!

Katana never disappoints. The food and ambiance are both top notch. Can't really go wrong with anything on the menu but the baked crab handrolls and chicken meatballs are favorites. All the sashimi and sushi are fresh and delicious. There is a reason that Katana is one of the few Hollywood hotspots that has outlasted its competition.

Had 2 wait 20 extra minutes to be seated..They tried to sit me and my guest outside when I requested inside seating..An extra 5 more minutes..just to be told if I wanted inside seating it would be another hour..Ended up sitting at the sushi bar which was very uncomfortable.Ordered the king crab legs..was expecting a minimum of 2 legs instead received one leg cut in half..very disappointing and misleading..The only ok thing was our waitress..Will not be returning or referring this place.

After reading so many brilliant reviews, I was super excited. Customer service is top notch here. The staff is super helpful when you make a reservation and will call you to confirm and they were kind enough to add an additional person to my party at the last minute. The ambiance is spectacular and the DJ played some amazing old school hip hop and R&B hits that made us groove big time. It's a nice place to people watch and take photos esp if youre seated outside and you're not feeling cold AT ALL because there's heat lamps aplenty. They are very courteous and attentive, but for the price vs. quality of food, it was a major letdown and I would refer to katana as mediocre, at best. My martini was great and my friends were happy with their drinks as well, but the food was extremely underwhelming. We ordered the white lotus that everyone raved about and I have had better sushi at a shopping center sushi joint than this thing. It was tasteless, obviously made in advance, and nothing to write home about. So unfortunate. The baked avocado was nice, but again nothing that blew our minds. The popcorn shrimp (another one from the popular reviews) was ok, but again, not a case of OH MY GOD! I will admit the salmon sashimi was one of the best i had and I even forced myself to try sea urchin again (still hate it), but everything we got was just not up to par to the likes of Nobu or Katsuya. Basically, you're paying to be at a hyped up popular place in Hollywood amongst the "cool kids" and that's about it. I can think of so many other places I'd rather go, but it was nice to finally go there and try it. I just wish the entire experience had been a hit. Oh and also, we left and we were still hungry so have a snack beforehand!

Katana has a beautiful interior and exemplify's elegance, however... for a 5 star restaurant to sell imitation crab ,(which is a filler used by cheap restaurants due to the price of crab)...and hot sake so watered down the alcohol content was non existent. Our party drank a lot of it and were completely sober. They then had to order other drinks which was ridiculous. For the prices charged by this establishment you would expect the ultimate experience but it purely presented a money grab. If this was a 3 star restaurant or less we would expect this but not from a 5 star restaurant charging high prices.

The overall result was a turnoff and dampener on a special evening. We will not return.
