One of my fav asian restaurants in Los Angeles. The location is incredible, especially if you get a table on the balcony outside. There is usually a DJ playing so makes for a great atmosphere. The food itself is amazing and at a very reasonable price too. I visit here every time I'm in town!

I used to come here a lot when it 1st opened about 15 years ago and I remember being really good. I was there past weekend to celebrate my birthday, and I was very disappointed. I ordered sushi, sashimi, hand rolls and pop corn shrimps. They were all mediocre. Service wasn't attentive nor friendly. My wine arrived late and my... More

While not a frequent visitor to Katana, we have visited Roku (previously Sushi Roku) many times and had positive experiences. Therefore I was a bit taken aback by how different the experience was here. - Sat us 10 minutes late - Took 15 minutes to get water, after asking for it. Even longer to get a drink - Brought wrong...

We were recommended Katana by our hotel concierge, there was our first mistake! Service well, unfortunately we had none, actually it took about 20 minutes to even be acknowledged by a staff member! The sushi we had was good, but we also had a chicken dish which was over cooked and chewy!!!!

Katana is a great ace for sushi and Robata style offerings. Great service and people watching. Bring money as this place is also very expensive. Definitely a place to be seen as stars regularly eat there and the whole outdoor mid level seating is really cool. Heat lamps too for those who can't handle the cold. Overall amazing service and...

They have a great selection, but, perhaps its the day I went, but the sushi didnt seem as fresh as it could have been. Still a decent choice if you have cash to burn

Just Ok! Service slow! We ordered about five rolls of suishi. Water never showed up! We told them we had a comedy show to catch in an hour right next door but girl never came with check and we had to ask another waitress for our check and to pay. This was a Sunday night from 8:00 - 9:00pm.

Great sushi, grilled meats and vegetarian options. Service was very attentive, friendly and warm. Recommend to sit at the sushi counter to watch the chefs creating the dishes right in front of you.
