My hotel Concierge recommended this restaurant when I told her I wanted something "dark and moody with a great ambience, great food and drink". I met some local friends there who had never been before and they LOVED it, just like I did. We sat...More

One of the best meals I have had in a while - excellent Japanese fusion. We tried the emperor sampler and it was over the top awesome - will come back many more times

In my opinion, the Sushi here was better than the top "named" sushi restaurants in both London and LA. Some really unique dishes and wonderful variety of both rolls and sashimi. As a British person, sitting out on the terrace above Sunset Blvd as the...More

I bet many folks drive up and down the Sunset Strip and don't even know Katana is there and that's a shame. It's good for me, cause I like that cause I always go here. Great spot, great food and nice people.

Comprehensive menu very well prepared. Wide offering of appetizers which was a meal in itself and provided a sampling of their menu from Fried Rice to Sushi.

Genuinely great food with a fantastic wine list. Service is excellent and the view from the balcony is a great example of LA. Definitely somewhere I’d go to again.

Went for dinner, sat on the patio. Great place for people watching. Beautiful building. Drinks are pricey, but look where you're at. Menu has lots of sharable, creative plates. They boast 3 kitchens that each do a different type of cuisine.

So they seem to want to copy the Japanese/Peruvian style that has become so popular. Well, this is really a copy, there is no inspiration here. The sushi are average, the robata are really disappointing. The dishes that are not a direct copy from Nobu...More

The inside tables are on the louder side but vary by area. Further from the sushi bar is generally quieter. Outdoor tables are not very loud but there is definitely moderate street noise from Sunset Blvd below
