It was a wonderful experience and highly recommend it! Food and service were amazing courtesy of Ben, one of the bartenders and our server, Che. Music created a great atmosphere for a Saturday night!

What was once a hip happening spot.. has now become a shadow of its former self. The service was below acceptable, the kitchen was a mess - we kept getting another table's food. The drinks were expensive with little to no alcohol. The whole experience was POOR.. and NOT WORTH THE PRICE.

Asian manager wishes us because the next party was ready…. Really I was given 90min but we had to eat while we paid the bill and the waitress was very apologetic but still this place has the worst etiquette regarding to hospitality. I will make sure to speak up if ever ever go again next time to give me respect during my experience. Last time I was there was ten years ago and prolly will never return again

This was my worst experience at Katana ever. I have been dining here for years, and the customer service last night was unacceptable. Our waitress Belinda was horrible and we had to ask for a manager. He also lacked the absolute minimum customer service skills. The whole experience was horrible and I will not be back again. I wouldn’t even know where to start in sharing just how bad everything is, but sufficient to say, the evening was ruined. So disappointing, especially when nothing like this has ever happened before but the damage is done.

The energy in this place has really fallen off. It just feels outdated now. Food is good but I feel like you can get the same quality food at a casual sushi restaurant in LA. I felt like the people working their think they are to cool to be working there. That’s a problem. Just do your job. Favorite dish was the popcorn shrimp and the spicy tuna crispy rice. Probably won’t be back again.

Being born and raised in LA, I’m upset I never went to Katana sooner! Everything was delicious from the appetizers to their lobster tail. You must order their buttery seabass & miso cod… both kushiyaki style. I’m not a chocolate person, but let me tell you… their chocolate volcano cake was gone before our waiter came back to ask how it was. Can’t waitttt to go back!

We had a great waiter, we told them we were in a rush so everything was brought out super quickly like we wanted. Great music fun atmosphere. Really nice big size rolls. Lamb chops were amazing. Salad was really good. Didn’t like that my spicy tuna roll was served warm, was not expecting that and when I commented on it they took it off my bill Immediately. Restaurants usually don’t do that these days. Would definitely come back.

Katana was so nice. I loved the ambience of the place & the prices weren’t bad at all. Oh and the food was GREAT. Definitely will be going back. However, our waitress (ponytail w/pink braided ends) she wasn’t very nice basically non accommodating and rude. If we had a better waitress the night would’ve definitely been a 10 out of 10.
