The South African host is absolutely delightful, he was very attentive from the beginning and so was our waitress. The robata is delicious.

Service was outstanding. Susie styled us and the manager (Peter) helped with food choices and was a delight. A favorite place in LA.

As a local of LA and west Hollywood I’ve tried almost every restaurant there is. Katana still manages to be on the top of my list! Amazing food, great service, beautiful restaurant. Sitting on the front patio is so lovely. The new general manager Derek is first class. If you love sushi and Japanese food, you have to try Katana.

I didn't like the hostess, she gave us a rude attitude and gave us an extremely terrible table next to the cashier like if we were going to leave without paying. I am not coming back for their race discrimination but other than that, the food was great and service after dealing with the hostess was very good.

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.

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.
