Terrible service; waiter seemed to be in a hurry. He would take our plates before we were finished. Food was mediocre, at best. Nothing memorable or outstanding. Decoration is pretty much nonexistent, and it is pretty dark inside. Would not recommend and will definitely not be going back.
Always busy but efficient. Tak runs a well oiled machine. Service is attentive, food consistently good. Great place for dinner before or after a game or event.
Food was good, drinks were superb. Service was super slow though. It took a while before our waiter came to acknowledge us at our table. Other than that it was an ok experience before the concert.
Great table service but reception had an attitude
Too loud, food comes way too fast, too rushed, prices higher than other locations
Had a really great dinner with my girlfriend! We had really great service and the food was amazing. I’ll definitely be back soon
I wish we would have gone somewhere else. They have a B rating, which in my opinion is horrible for a sushi restaurant. We realized it when it was too late. Outside seating felt very messy and dirty. Maybe it was because they were busy. Service was alright. The hostess at the front was friendly and accommodating, which was the only good thing there.
Service was good and friendly. Food was incredibly mediocre. Very basic sushi. I’ve had better sushi at the mall! It was fairly expensive as well, almost $80 for two people, no drinks. There are better places to eat at LA Live, skip this one.
I was so disappointed with the level of service we received last night at Katsuya. It seemed like no body wanted to be bothered to assist their customers there. We were seated immediately because of our reservation, but no one came to our table for 20 minutes. Once the server arrived, she apologized but it didn’t get any better. We got our drinks at different times. We got our sushi before our appetizers, in fact we got our appetizer after we were done eating our main course. We asked for plates and forks but got them in time to just look at because we were done eating. Then we ordered two desserts only to find out they were out of one of them so they brought out one and we literally waited 30 minutes for the second dessert to come! It was ridiculous! I won’t be spending my hard earned money there any time soon!
Fabulous a great dining experience
It would’ve been nice if they called me that they’re not open because of some sort of citation. We drove all the way from San Diego. Left our house early because of traffic. So disappointing!
Unfortunately didn’t have an experience because I found out upon arrival to the restaurant that they abruptly cancelled my dinner reservation. Very disappointed.
Nice place with good food prior to event at Staples Center, just not thrilled Katsuya became so corporate with pre-made rolls, pre-cut sushi.
Fresh fish and good service
Had a horrible experience. Our server was not only slow (no excuse either, place was empty) but she would not acknowledge us what’s so ever, finished our drinks took for ever to acknowledge that we wanted something else to drink. Once she did it took her at least 20 minutes to get us our second drinks and by the time she did we were done and ready to leave this place. Food was good service was horrible. Not acceptable for a fine dinning establishment. Will not come back to this location.
A perfect place for a relaxed date. The staff were very polite and they make very good recommendations! The L.A. Live location offers many activities as well.
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
