Its our first time here and I may that I was kinda impressed. The food was good with huge servings. Good for a large group of people. We sat at the terrace and the atmosphere was great. The ambiance was just awesome. And the staff was also friendly and accommodating.. We were really taken cared off. we are now planning on when we'll be back. Definitely a must-try place!

I've been to Katana several times and each time I keep thinking it will be the time to change my mind and make me understand all the hype about this place. Well, this time the restaurant definitely made an impact on me. I will NEVER go there again. I made a reservation three weeks in advance for Valentine's Day. I confirmed it (myself) the week before and the day of, making sure to let the hostess repeat the day and time back to me. The big day arrives and I check in ten minutes early. The hostess says I will be seated in ten minutes exactly. Half an hour later I check in again only to find she accidentally pushed my reservation to 11pm....and that I will need to wait another 20 minutes for an available table. I speak to the manager, Phillippe. He is kind and apologetic and my hopes are rekindled as he buys us a round of drinks while we wait, promises us a free appetizer and several desserts. Mind you, I would have been MORE than pleased at just being comped the round of drinks, but Phillippe INSISTED he take care of us. Our food takes a long time, but it's Valentine's Day so we don't mind. Half way through dinner a large cake, complete with sparklers and champagne is delivered to a lovely couple sitting adjacent to us and everyone turns to watch the spectacle and oooh and aaah over how romantic the gentleman is to do this for his date. Ten minutes later Phillippe (who delivered the cake in the first place) takes the cake back along with the champagne because he mistakenly brought it to the wrong table. Obviously, he should have brought them a complimentary dessert or at least let them keep their champagne. This is not the case. The gentleman looks horrified and the couple quickly leave. This should have served as an omen for what was to come.
After the meal has been obviously finished we sit at our table for another twenty minutes, our waitress no where to be found, nor Phillippe. Finally the waitress arrives with the check. She did not even offer us to look at the dessert menu and where were these desserts Phillippe promised us? Then we look at the bill. NOTHING has been comped. Nothing. We ask to speak to Phillipe and ask him (kindly) if there has been a mistake. He angrily takes the bill and tries to tell us the desserts are on their way. Yet we sat at an empty table with the check far too long for that to be true. I call his bluff. He doesn't say a word as he takes the bill and grudgingly takes off the first round of drinks and an appetizer. STILL no sign of dessert, which we saved room for. AND the waitress delivers the new check. Look, I don't NEED to be given anything for free. I didn't ask for any of these things. But when someone tells you to expect you...you expect the bill to reflect these promises. The entire night things kept going awry, there was a fire somewhere in the restaurant which caused smoke to permeate throughout the entire dining room and wreaked. My drink was made incorrectly and came out twenty minutes after I ordered it...there were more things that happened, but it would have all been forgiven and forgotten had Phillipe been consistent and kind. We just wanted to enjoy our Valentine's Day. Instead he made us feel like WE were the problems. That we were LUCKY to be dining there. The entire meal from start to finish took almost three hours and it was NOT because we ordered a lot of food or were taking our time. I will NEVER go to this restaurant again. AWFUL.

I've been to Katana about 6 times... I love sitting outside. My usual order includes: foie gras (the only place I've tried it and it's surprisingly delicious), kobe beef, lamb chops, sashimi and sushi rolls... all are amazing!! And the cocktail at the bar in that large pitcher is refreshingly tasty!!

I have been to Katana 4 times now, and not once have I been disappointed. Sushi is my absolute favorite thing, and I have made it my personal goal to try out all of the fabulous sushi spots in LA. Katana is by far one of the absolute best!

You can't go wrong with any or the rolls, and if you like cocktails the pear martinis are amazing.

My Katana experience was pretty awesome. My food was tasty, my drink was refreshing with kick, and my wallet wasn't damaged to badly; oh, and I made two new friends as well as flirtatious banter with another cutie-pie patron.

I haven't had formal seating in the dining area, so I can only speak from a bar/terrace perspective, but if you're looking for a nice place where you can get an amazing meal, cool-hip atmosphere, and possibly chat it up a bit with your neighbor, this is a great spot.

My husband and I went there last night and if I had read the reviews I might not have gone, but I am glad I did. We ordered the Izakaya Feast and it was fantastic!!! Our servers name was Chris and he was charming, our food came fast....very fast actually. Our tea was constantly refilled without asking, our food was introduced and explained to us as it was served, the manager came over and gave us his card and invited us back. I loved the place! The only problem we had was parking down below. My husbands truck is too tall for underground parking so we had to park in the $12 lot. Oh well......One more thing....I never go to restaurants for ""the scene"" I prefer the beach actually where you can look and dress and be whatever and whoever. High-end, Sunset strip, hip-slick-cool-see and be seen places are NOT interesting to me at all. I went for the food. It was fabulous! We will go back.

Went there on Sunday night, place is empty, hostess tells us there are large parties coming in so she can not seat us outside and that we can either sit at the banquettes in front or at the bar. We ask her if there is service at the banquette and she said ""yes"" so we sit and every waiter in the place walks right by us. I ask the hostess if she could send someone over to take our order, she says ""yes"" but does nothing. We wait and complain again and again -- no service. We moved to bar and there are only 4 people there, the bartender says ""I'll be right with you"" and leaves the bar for 15 minutes!! At that point, I complained to the manager and he could care less, doesn't apologize, doesn't say anything, so we left! I have never been treated so poorly at a restaurant in my life! I have been to every hot restaurant in LA and never, not once have I been treated that way, I will never go back! You get better service when the place is packed.

I just left at 7:45 pm on Sunday August 9, 2009 from having drinks and appetizers with a friend at Katana, and I have never had a worse experience at any restaurant as I did tonight. Our waitress was inexperienced and unprofessional. While she made a series of undoubtedly mistakes (that even she admitted), she was unapologetic and rude about having to serve us. She ordered the wrong meal for my friend, and we then had to wait for long periods of time for our meals to be delivered to us. Not to mention, she did not apologize for her incompetence, but instead she repeatedly walked away dismissively as if our concerns were not valid. The manager came to our table and before we had a chance to fully express our concerns, he immediately took an abrasive tone with us. While my friend was explaining the poor service we received, he rudely interrupted her by saying, Theres nothing I can do if you had a bad experience."" Not only was his tone generally rude with us before we could even fully explain our service experience, but he was also resorting to saying rude things under his breath (almost whispering) to us. When we asked him to speak louder to have a civil conversation, he did not do so. During the course of his quiet berating, he said ""You all have been difficult since you've arrived here, and we have the right to refuse service."" If we were being difficult, rude and upsetting to his staff from the beginning, then the staff and general manager did not acknowledge this before and during our meal by doing as the manager stated, and refusing to service us. After witnessing the rudeness of the manager, I asked him ""What ever happened to the customers' experience coming first?"" He replied that his role was to ""protect his staff"". When asking him to elaborate upon how we did anything that gave him the need to protect his staff, he gave no specifics and refused to explain how he came to this conclusion (applying apparent prior racial bias and prejudice to his approach to us being African American female patrons).

My girlfriend and I I just returned from an absolutely awful dining experience at Katana. We thought we were going to have a nice girls night out, but this turned into a nightmare. I usually do not write reviews but this was soo bad that I cant just act like it never happened. This is my 5th time dining there and my last. All other times I have been nice, hence why I returned. However, tonight our waitress was flustered and making rude and snide remarks when we asked questions on why each order was taking almost 30 minutes to come out ( we ordered small bites). Then we asked to speak to the manager who identified himself as Al who was beyond rude, before we could say one word he was verbally attacking us and telling us the restaurant has the right to refuse service. What is he talking about? We had the bill and were paying but wanted to speak with him to address why the food was room temp when it came out and also why each order took so long. We really were not going to mention our waitress (we figured she was having a bad day). However, he attacked us saying he heard us talking to her in a rude manner...WHAT? he was no where around and also there is no way he could have heard us as we were not rude and we couldnt even hear the people 10 ft away from us talking so how could he have possibly heard our conversation unless he was standing at our table...which he wasnt. As we attempted to talk to him he was beyond dismissive and said well you ate the food didnt you...pay the bill and leave!! Unbelievable...he then continued to say we protect our staff and she said you were being mean and rude to her. Ok, if this was going on then why didnt she approach the manager and ask him to come over to our table? Why because we didnt say or do anything rude to this woman. I then asked her please tell me what did we say or do that was rude her response was I just told him I couldnt do anything to please them. The manager was rude and unprofessional. A manger is suppose to speak with the customer and address their concerns, not approach a customer with an attitude, and not let us get one word in. He had already made up his mind on what he thought happened. It seemed to me as though this manager and waitress had a dating or some type of relationship as he approached the situation as an overprotective boyfriend. We have no idea but this was beyond unprofessional ...no apology or anything. This manager Al should not be working in the hospitality industry let alone as a manager, and if this waitress can't deal with the public she should chose another profession. I will never return and I will tell everyone I know to never return to this place unless you want to be mistreated and verbally abused!!!

The sushi and sashimi is fresh and attractively prepared. The server kept up with our ordering pattern, but seemed a little distracted (overworked?) and it took a few reminders to keep the drinks coming in concert with the food. In general, I would give the thumbs up for taking a date or a small number of guests -- nice interior, very clean, professional service environment without the uptightness of nobu. it is more fun that ocean ave seafood (also of excellent quality, but a very predictable American experience).

Katana is beautiful... really nice spot. Salmon is my favorite seafood so I seem to favor the rainbow roll. But they are way overpriced. club sushi is more in my budget. The average amount you will pay per entree is between $15 and $25.

First of all, I've been here quite a few times and I strongly recommend a reservation, especially during peak hours. \r

Katana is located in the heart of Hollywood and it's a nice place to go to get to know someone special (as I did this past weekend) or just hang out with friends and meet people. The patio is especially nice. The food is quite good, but the portions are small. I think the prices are kind of high for the food, but the location is prime so maybe pricey is appropriate. You may even bump into a ""star"" or two as I have done on more than one occassion! Anyways, go with reasonable expectations and you will definately be satisfied!

I give this place 5 stars for decor and location. the place is so beautiful and big. Staff was very friendly. We were the first ones to show up on a thursday night (or wed, can't remember) so we got the fusion drink (awesome!). They kept forgetting some of our order which was annoying, but were still very friendly. The music outside was mellow and i loved the vibe of the whole place. Sushi was good and fresh. The cooked steak on a stick was amazing, i dont like steak but i'd order this again and again!!! Place packed up pretty fast by the time we were leaving.

Check out the review of this and many other happy hours at: happiest hours(dot)blog spot(dot)com - no spaces between words, but City Search won't allow it any other way. First, the important stuff - the atmosphere here is great, and for a Tuesday night, it was a decent crowd. Young professionals, friendly bartender, good decor. The downside is that for two people having drinks and food, the total was $74 (after tax and a hefty - as always - tip.) The upside is that there was PLENTY of meter parking on Sunset at 5:30 mid-week. Plenty.\r
\r
Drinks on the HH menu include sake, wine, well drinks and a Katana Fusion (vodka and fruit juice) for $5. There used to be beer as well, but they no longer stock the happy hour beer and haven't replaced it with another selection. My companion wanted a beer, so we paid menu prices for two of those ($6 each), plus we had two Katana Fusions, which are mighty tasty. The awesome bartenders topped me off with club soda after that and generously kept my glass full, gratis. Thanks, guys!\r
\r
Let me start by saying the food was outstanding. Among the best I've had on the Happy Hour gauntlet. Everything is $5 a plate and was so good it was easy to not realize how small the portions were until -- eight plates later and we weren't full. That might not seem like much, but your favorite foodie here has the appetite of a budgie and usually can't split five plates with my fellow revelers, much less eight. Now, eight orders of sushi are also going to be pretty small, but if it's Happy Hour, or ""Red Sun"" hour, prices should be reduced, and these seemed like standard $5 appies from a regular bar/sushi menu.

Check out the review of this and many other happy hours at: happiest hours(dot)blog spot(dot)com - no spaces between words, but City Search won't allow it any other way. First, the important stuff - the atmosphere here is great, and for a Tuesday night, it was a decent crowd. Young professionals, friendly bartender, good decor. The downside is that for two people having drinks and food, the total was $74 (after tax and a hefty - as always - tip.) The upside is that there was PLENTY of meter parking on Sunset at 5:30 mid-week. Plenty.\r
\r
Drinks on the HH menu include sake, wine, well drinks and a Katana Fusion (vodka and fruit juice) for $5. There used to be beer as well, but they no longer stock the happy hour beer and haven't replaced it with another selection. My companion wanted a beer, so we paid menu prices for two of those ($6 each), plus we had two Katana Fusions, which are mighty tasty. The awesome bartenders topped me off with club soda after that and generously kept my glass full, gratis. Thanks, guys!\r
\r
Let me start by saying the food was outstanding. Among the best I've had on the Happy Hour gauntlet. Everything is $5 a plate and was so good it was easy to not realize how small the portions were until -- eight plates later and we weren't full. That might not seem like much, but your favorite foodie here has the appetite of a budgie and usually can't split five plates with my fellow revelers, much less eight. Now, eight orders of sushi are also going to be pretty small, but if it's Happy Hour, or ""Red Sun"" hour, prices should be reduced, and these seemed like standard $5 appies from a regular bar/sushi menu.

Four of us went for dinner, promptly seated, decent table, very dark inside. The place was slow but it quickly filled up. The service was generally good until they got busy. We liked some of the food a lot, and hated some of it a lot... we sent back a raw tuna that was fishy smelling and then later, we had a shrimp tempura roll that was completely inedible. I mean, it just tasted like over fried pork rind! It look a long time to get that sorted out, and by the time we were done, we wanted out. Not planning a return. I've had better sushi in less pretentious places. Most of the staff seem congenial, but many of the hostesses look a bit overly Beverly Hilled.

Pros: Nice atmosphere for the most part

Cons: A little too snobish and ""Hollywood Scene"" for me, nothing, ""real,"" or down to earth about it.

I've been here several times for ""date nights"" and am always impressed by the great service and the good sushi. My fav is the spicy tuna roll and the asparagus wrapped filet! Oh, and try the infusion drink at the bar - it's great as a martini or over ice. Yum.

I went with a friend for her birthday and we had an amazing time. Our waiter was polite and made great suggestions based upon our personal likes. We loved the kobe, sea bass and shrimp wrapped with bacon from the Robata menu. They had a fun sushi menu although I've definitely had better sushi before. I'd suggest dining outside (at least while the weather is warm) because it adds a new dimension to the already great ambiance. This place attracts a fun crowd...great for people watching, too.

My wife and I go here about once a month to enjoy the food, the drinks, the ambiance and each other. The food, to me, is better than anything else I have ever eaten. We love the robata, especially the black cod, the chilean seabass and the ribeye. Green beans are a must. They have an appetizer that has fresh crab stuffed into soy paper which melts in your mouth. Try the pear martini -- it's perfect: fresh pear, parmesan cheese...strange combo but works sooooo well together. \r
\r
We have also had sushi and sashimi from Katana. It's super fresh and delicious. And the service is prompt with really cool ambiance. Katana is a must!!

The entire wait staff thinks they are better than the diners- all waiting to be discovered. Periodically, this isn't such a bad thing as you get to be around beautiful, want-to-be-liked, early twenty-somethings, but generally speaking, they tend to want to please so the service industry works for them (hence all the actor/waiters in this town). It is as sadly typical of Los Angeles as we've found, having moved here from San Francisco two years ago. We arrived at 6:30 and asked to be seated outside- there was nobody seated there yet, same as the inside. The hostess said, Oh sorry- all booked up for outside. 2 hours later and a very mediocre meal with TERRIBLE service later, the outside was perhaps a quarter full. The ""creamy"" baked crab roll was incredibly dry. The lobster baked roll was over cooked, and the drinks were unbelivably watered down. If you do go though, get the tuna over ""baked"" (clearly fried) rice. It was good.\r
\r
Prices were over the top for what they are serving. They are going on location, location, location! But I am not buying a house....I just wanted a decent night out with my husband. In any other town this place would be out of business. Oh, and the tables on our right and left were eagerly griping as well. I realize this site isn't accurate as restaurant owners/staff tend to write them - so, I'm submitting this with a gain of salt.

Katana is a great sushi and robata restaurant. The patio overlooking Sunset Boulevard is spectacular. The drinks are good and it is a great place for people watching!

so yeah there's a scene... but can you say yummmmyy!!! during the summer outside is a plus but be sure you call at least a week in advance and request it.. if outside is not possible sit in the tea garden room inside.. you are inside but you feel like you are in this magical sushi garden..... almost private.. very vip like area. last time i was there we were sitting next to tyra banks .. i dont know if thats a pro or a con. the staff is friendly and the food is delicious! you have to order the tuna carpaccio with the soy truffle sauce.. it has tuna, truffle oil, soy, shaved parmesan, arugula and avocado... it literally melts on your tongue! the king crab legs robata with drawn butter.. the lamb chops.. i can go on forever.. a must go place.

Pros: NOT A PLACE FOR KIDS! great people watching, very hip and on the sunset strip if you want to go out after. love the outside area. fresh food

Cons: if you dont have reservations you will have to wait forever. but overall very cool place to go

.

I dined here alone - in town from work. It was kind of funny that they have a guy manning the ""red rope"" yet they don't ask if you have a reservation or anything. It's a cool building and is right on the strip. I sat at the Robata bar. The food was good and the staff was attentive. I had the tempura vegetables which come as a large ""brick"" of sorts. They tasted SO good though - good appetizer. I also had the California Roll - not that exciting, but tasted good. Overall, it looks like this would be a fun place to come and have a drink outside on their patio and then dine - or just drinks. Fun atmosphere.

I love katana...great atmosphere and the best sushi in town. Spicy tuna rolls are amazing and so is the filet mignon wrapped around asparagus. The drinks are great..the service is a little slow but its worth the wait. Try to go during the week as it gets really packed on the weekends and theres no seating outdoors. call in advance for outdoor seating reservation. its definitely pricey but worth every dollar. Great for a night out with your friends or a date.

My friends and I have always heard great things about Katana and decided to give it a go. From the moment we walked in, we liked what we saw. Very stylish decor, a lil' dark (what restaurant in L.A. isn't), cozy feeling in a weird way. We got sat about 20 min. after our reservation time in a cozy corner area and was greeted fairly quickly by our server. He explained to us how the restaurant works and suggested the most amazing dish to get us started, order the lobster with scallops and shrimp, amazing! Everything we got was fantastic and tasted sooo good. The robata is the way to go, trust me! The cocktail list is pretty good (pear martini), although wines by the glass aren't the best. If you happen to be there on the right night, get the fried cheesecake, insane!! The service was amazing, ask for Adam?, made us laugh a lot. Make a reservation and order a lot of the robata,so yummy. I'll be going back!

Going along with all the other happy reviewers, I thought this restaurant was pretty great. The pros were the amazingly fresh sushi, the friendly service, the drinks, the decor... Just impeccable all around. The only con was, well, how friggin' popular this place is. The bar was SO crowded on the Saturday night I went (I know, duh). Yummy mojitos, though. And also, we were originally taken to a teeny, tiny back room to celebrate my boyfriend's 25th birthday, next to a crying baby. Uh, yeah, I'm not usually picky, but NO. So, we then requested another seat, and were taken outside. Then, the manager himself brought over a complimentary dish - Just because we wanted to change seats!\r
\r
All in all, a GREAT place... Just popular.

The biggest advantage of Katana is of course its location. I really enjoy sitting in its patio and observing the traffic on Sunset blvd, the luxury cars and people walking around. People there are just beautiful. Even though it is always crowded in Katana, the crowdness doesn't annoy me. As all the restaurants and lounges on Sunset, the valet parking is just a little overwhelming.

The food here is amazing!! I love that you can order small pieces of meat from their grill- I love the Chilean sea bass. Also, the sushi is high quality. The mojiots definitely don't skimp on the booze. Come here for your birthday and they put a huge sparkler-type candle in your dessert- it's amazing! Make reservations!

The first time I went here was a few years ago. I went there on a date for my birthday and the experience was phenomenal. Everything my date ordered was really tasty. The drinks were perfect and the service was good. It's a good spot for drinks. After that I 've been back many times with a large group and it worked out just perfect. I recommend this place to the younger crowd.

Went for happy hour...nice selection of small robatta and sushi dishes for a reasonable price. Very tasty execution on all of them. Drink specials were limited; however, one must try the Kyoto Rose or Pear martini if you are in the mood for something different and not too terribly sweet. The shaved parmesean served with the pear martini truly ""makes it"". However, if you don't tend to care for syupy sweet fruity drinks, steer clear of the Katana Tropical Fusion - unfortunately the only cocktail on the happy hour menu that night. \r
\r
Atmosphere is high concept and well executed. The only real draw back is that there is not much of a lounge area. One cool spot in the back, but that was taken. If you wish to partake of Happy Hour the only seating option other than the bar is at a couple of benches near the entrance. Felt very exposed and more like the waiting area than an actual seating area. Good people watching though. \r
\r
Overall - Great place to go if you are catching a show at HOB across the street. Nice evening and pleasant service. Good food and unique drinks. If there weren't so many interesting place to try in this town, I may go back.

I have eaten at Katana over a dozen times and never written a review. Overall I would recommend Katana for a few reasons. \r
\r
Here are the Pro's- They have a knowledgeable staff, a nice Sake list, extremely friendly Sushi chefs who love to interact (this is difficult to find in LA!!!), a warm atmosphere, nice robata selection and good sushi, friendly bartenders and servers.\r
\r
Cons- The food could be better. Katsuya seems to be leading this category but they are a close second. They have a little attitude at the hostess desk, do not go on a Saturday as they are too busy and service can be lazy, parking can be difficult.\r
\r
Enjoy Katana as I usually eat at the Sushi bar. They have the nicest Sushi chefs in town which creates an enjoyable dining experience.

It was our very first time at the restaurant so our very friendly server gave us several recommendations that made our dining experience amazing that night.\r
\r
First he recommened the Tsukune and the Tanuki Robata, both are made with chicken and the latter is mixed with some shitake mushroom. Very nicely grilled and the chicken is tender, blends well with the shitake.\r
\r
Next we had the Gindara which is a black cod fish and some mushrooms, excellently made as well.\r
I would also recommend the asparagus that's wrapped with shitake mushroom, a very light and healthy dish to balance the meat robatas.\r
\r
The dumplings are also something I would recommend - the gyozas.\r
\r
The crunchy tuna is decent if you wana try rolls and so is the baked lobster avocado roll.\r
\r
One thing note worthy is the exquisite cocktail menu, and the fuji apple martini is a must try, very delicious with the flavorful fuji apple

This is not a place to go for sushi!! My husband and I ordered several sushi selections last night and all were horrible. Sushi is very black and white: it is either a good cut of fish and ultra-fresh or, in Katana's case, NOT. We were so blown away by how awful it was. I will say the atmosphere was beautiful , the service was excellent and the drinks were good.

Anyone who has a problem with this place is just a hollywood hater and can't put their opinion of the ""scene"" aside to appreciate amazing amazing food and drinks. AMAZING. I highly recommend the striped bass, it will scare you when you first see it, but it's mouth-watering.

Pros: Food, Scene, Outdoor

While this spot has had its heyday, it's still a fine location with great views over the Strip, particularly on a warm evening. The appetizers are good and the drinks strong. The scene provides cool decor and lots of people watching. All in all, it's not the kind of place locals really go to -- it's more for suburbanites and out-of-towners looking for what they think is a cool scene or trying to prove to themselves just how cool they are ;)
