We tried a bunch of stuff on the menu. Probably the most notable were the lobster tempura and the wagyu dumplings. Unfortunately, we didn’t feel like the food was worth the price, but it was delicious nonetheless! Great date spot, and a really beautiful place. Valet is $9, so at least you don’t have to worry about parking if you’re willing to pay.

The outside area with the heaters made it very pleasant to be out on the patio.
Service a tad slow, but then the place was mobbed. Great menu and food was very good!

We’ve been to Katsuya many times, but hadn’t been since we moved out of LA. We were so happy to go back and be able to bring our girls. Francisco, our waiter, took great care of us and the sushi was just as delicious as we remembered. Look forward to going back again!

The noise level is too high, everything echoes against the wood paneling on the walls and ceilings.
Our food came in sporadically, each person (5 of us) at different times. Not a pleasant dinning experience. Especially for the price$$$

Service was exceptionally slow.. server was great with checking about food coming out but receiving items took forever. Other tables complained to the manager and when we asked her to come over she was very rude and showed no sympathy. Also not one worker mentioned or acknowledged the birthday celebration even though it was mentioned when we made the reservation as well as checked in

This restaurant is ( better say was) one of my fav spots. However the service was horrible tonight. The food was below average. It took the waitress 30 min to bring a bottle of sake. And the excuse of the kitchen was that we are busy when half the tables were empty.

Our overall experience was great! We would recommend and go back for sure! They have a birthday cake (corkage fee) which could have been just waived since we were a big party and ordered a ton of food. That would have been a cool gesture.

Sadly we hoped for a better experience for our anniversary dinner. No hot sake at all at 6pm on a Friday night. First order of appetizers came fairly quickly but the next order of a California roll and rainbow roll showed up an hour later right before we were ready to leave... not acceptable. It wasn’t that busy either. Most likely won’t return to this Katsuya.
