The service at Katsuya LA Live was excellent. The ambience is vibrant at LA Live so I would recommend Katsuya if you are there for a game or concert.
Great service! Our server was an absolute delight & very attentive.
Decent, impressively designed, sushi option in Downtown. Been here several times and have had better sushi than I did last night 😕
We were a party of seven for a business lunch; gratuity was included. Service was awful. Lucky for our server her lack of attention/speed/even water for the table did not impact her tip since it was baked in. It would have been considerably less otherwise.
Very good miso soup
Food lacked flavor and was overpriced. There are much better options in DTLA
Vince our server was amazing and had complete control of the table and the menu. The food was amazing and we had an amazing time!
I took over 30 min to get our drinks.
The restaurant was packed. The front of house ladies were clueless and not resourceful. Our server was overwhelmed but he did a great job with what he was presented with. Management has to do some work here.
Food was average. Appetizers were good but entrees were average. the lamb special was tough. great place for drinks outside but not for food.
The food was great, the service was great. It’s a great atmosphere and place to eat before a concert or game. Make sure you make reservations beforehand
The food is overpriced and I don’t trust their quality because for the second time in three years they have lied to me about the gin that they’re serving me! It was the exact same story so if they’re lying about their Gin and Trying to pass it off or something else (repeatedly) a gin that is on the menu but they don’t even have ( for 3 years) who knows where they they get their fish from??
And their hand rolls are the size of my little finger !
Too pricey and food was just ok. Rolls advertised online are not even available.
Great food. Fast service.
5 Stars!!! Amazing food, great service and oh did I mention how amazing the food was?
Loved this place! Food was amazing! Expensive if you order certain plates, but worth it!
On my recent visit, the food was excellent as always, However, it took about 45 minutes for my lobster roll to arrive, so my dining companions were pretty much finished eating by the time I got my order, and I had to worry about getting back to the office in time for a scheduled phone call that shouldn't have been an issue. To the restaurant's credit, they apologized and took it off the bill.
Super convenient DTLA location, food was superb, and great place for large groups. We were 13 eating lunch after a movie screening. Got to eat in a sort of private area with a large square table, with sheer curtains to give us privacy. Good value for how much we ate. Great to share all the dishes.
Excellent food and vibe.
We always enjoy the food and experience
Great food, a little pricey but good. Service could’ve been a little better but wasn’t terrible!
Good service great food
Concert.. reservations for 10
The staff is quick and the sushi is great! The atmosphere is very energetic and fun! I would highly recommend a pre-game meal here!
Food was delicious but food was unbelievably slow. Over an hour to get an eggplant dish? Kitchen overworked during peak hours. Couldn't keep up with demand.
The tables are too close to each other. The sushi selection is very limited amd the prices are unjustifiably high . The service was great. I will not return - there numerous better choices in downtown even in close proximity to Staples.
I changed my reservation from 6pm, to 7:30pm. When I arrived, I was told my reservation was for the next day, even after I showed the hostess my confirmed reservation. The restaurant was so empty, there shouldn't have been any problems, which the hostess did mention; but their
mix-up & their reaction to their mix-up upset me, since I brought someone from out of town, who had never been there before.
Again, with the restaurant being so empty, our server was very inattentive & when I asked for additional noori crisps for my very expensive starter, in was told there woild be an upcharge! No apology, no "let me speak to my manager." I don't even care if there was an add'l $1 upcharge, I just thought then service was inconsiderate & unaccomodating.
My out of town guest did rave about the food, which was excellent, however, agreed that the quality of service could have been better. That is why I will not give a 5 star rating. I spent $185 & I can't get a few add'l noori crisps without an upcharge? Really?
Very expensive for the amount of food served. Great decor and service, but need to make the portion sizes larger.
We are parents who provided a ride to our teenagers to see a concert at the Microsoft theater and needed somewhere to hang out until it was over. I had no idea that Katsuya was more than just a cool place to spend a few hours. We consider ourselves sushi snobs and we were blown away by the quality of fish we consumed. Rolls, sashimi, sushi - just delicious! Plus, our chef and our server were so top notch. An all around five star evening. We will be back!!
We went there for dinner during Tony Robbins so it was packed and service was very slow
We were there prior to the Kings games. One of our favorite place to eat before a game. Great vibe. The food was amazing. The waitress recommended the crab hand rolls and they did not disappoint.
Always a solid selection for dinner and drinks before a Clippers game
Service pretty much was painful but outside in beautiful weather eating short ribs and sushi. What’s not to like.
The food is always delicious and is prepared quickly and expertly.
However it is always crowded and the servers/support staff always seem a bit overwhelmed.
They are always polite and get the order, but it is often hard to get the little things like water and getting the old dishes bussed off the tables.
At this price point that kind of thing should never be an issue, so it lowers the "value" of the meal in the rating.
We did not get our drinks for an hour into our meal when we were actually asking for our check. Horrible service.
Had a reservation, the line to just let them know you were there was way out the door. By the time we were able to check in, we were past our reservation time, and we were told it would be another 30 minutes. Need to better handle, if you can’t honor a reservation, you shouldn’t make it.
It was over booked. Service was awful. Our waiter messiel was great but you can tell he was overwhelmed but was doing his best. Our warm rolls came out cold. It was a disaster.
It was insanely loud and the service wasn't good. It's so disappointing because I love their food, but would recommend the Hollywood location over this one.
