    Everything took at least 45 minutes to make it out of the kitchen, standing behind a jet engine at full throttle would have been quieter. Better or as good sushi at way better prices with way better ambiance at a ton of other places nearby.

    The seating has always been an issue. Seating by the entrance , seating by people standing around by the bar. Services and personnel always superb, but the seating needs work. This would be 4th consecutive time we have had this issue.

    The quality and portions of the food have definitely suffered over the years. The fish is also not as fresh as I’m used to. I’ve been going to this restaurant for over a decade and unfortunately have seen the quality suffer and prices drive up.

    Our waiter was amazing and so was the manager. We cam at a perfect time where there was no rush at 6:45pm but food was slow to come out for one of the first times I've noticed in all my visits there. Lychee martinis are my favorite!

    Staff and service was excellent. The menu is creative & most of the food was delicious. Although the meat was heavier on sodium for my liking. The vegetable tempura, spicy tuna & chicken fried rice was excellent. We shall return and order the plates we loved.

    We have dined here frequently for years. This was our last time for a number of reasons. 1. Booked a reservation for 5 people outside and was placed at a small table in the front that we did not fit into. When I asked if another table was available, I was told NO that's all we have or you can sit inside. We requested outside as we do not feel comfortable dining inside. The hostess could care less and didn't even look at me when she spoke to me. It was 6pm and the outside was empty. We crammed into the small table and all the while looked at a larger table across from us that sat empty for 50 minutes. They eventually sat 2 people at the larger table while our party of 5 could barely move. 2. Because the table was so small they could only bring one dish out at a time because there was no where to put food down. 5 people sharing one dish at a time really doesn't provide you with a meal 3. The food has changed and is NOT good. We sent back burned, dry brussel sprouts, didn't eat the baked crab hand roll because it tasted off, everything tasted different than it typically does. The dishes have gotten smaller, everything is dry. I asked our server if they had a new Chef because this was not the same meal that we have had for years. The answer was YES. The head Chef is apparently still there but there are new chefs. We were celebrating my daughters birthday and had the grandparents with us. $400 dinner at a small table with food that was not up to par. NO THANKS. The only good part about the dinner was our server. He was very nice. Don't waste your time or money - Sugar Fish and Blue Ribbon are near by.

    We were seated in the secondary room facing the kitchen. The room became very loud as it filled, not conducive as a romantic setting. Sushi food portions were very small. We will not be returning anytime soon. Service was spotty.

    I can’t recall ever submitting a negative review until Now. The Hostess was rude and would only allow us two bad table options while several tables were open within the main dining area. Claimed those tables were for other guests. No one was seated at those tables for nearly an hour after we ordered. The table service was also terrible. Katsuya has joined post pandemic New World Order of lame dining experience where they think it’s okay to treat the customers poorly. The sushi was also mediocre at best.

    Wow! Be sure to bring your wallet and NOT your appetite. The food was an absolute joke and the portion sizes and prices were unbelievable. Felt like a tourist trap. Also, they sneak a 5% surcharge onto the bill to help pay for the rising costs of food. Stick to the known sushi restaurants like a NoBu and Koi. Although they are also expensive at least they provide a true meal and not morsels.

    I had a terrible experience at this restaurant approximately 7 years ago. However, I was thrilled to experience a new Katsuya last night. The service is now unparalleled - a drastic difference from years ago. David T. is a class act. He came to our table to make sure everything is okay. The ambiance was casual chic and the outdoor setting was perfectly comfortable with heaters and a low noise level. Glad to see Katsuya has improved their service drastically when so many restaurants are seeing a decline in service. Thank you, David for making sure we had a perfect evening. An overall wonderful experience and a great way to celebrate a special occasion. Just hoping the bread pudding will make a come back.
