    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.

    Very loud. You have to raise your voice just to talk to people on your table. Service was very poor. They didn’t have enough workers. Server only checked on us a couple of times the whole time. We had to remind the server to bring the food that was missing.

    First time at the Brentwood location and we could not stop saying "WOW," at simply how amazing the staff and the food were. If you are going to visit, the Robata Station is the place to be. While often times "Sushi Bar" is the highlight and the experience many look to, I can genuinely say that the "Robata Bar" is novel and creative and ultimately, quite captivating. Our server, Johnny, was attentive and provided over the top service and really catered and made the experience worthwhile. The Robata Chef, Jose, was engaging and was happy to explain the process, the meats and vegetables available and the sauces that come with each item. I would recommend this venue and this experience to everyone as I left not only content after a delicious meal but full from the kindness and the service provided. I can not say enough great enough things. Thank you to our server Johnny and the Robata Chef, Jose for making the experience that much more worthwhile. We will most definetly be dining in again!

    We have been eating at that restaurant for many and it was always great all the way around,A couple weeks ago when we went there the food and the service was very bad, Alex the manager asked us to come back so we did last night, the food was great!! The service sucked Alex saw us there and did not bother after our previous experience to come over and ask if all is good, bad management and bad service!! We are done with this restaurant for now.

    I was looking for a new experience for my wife and I to partake in for our anniversary and I saw that this restaurant offered an Omakase service. I was excited because I have experienced this many times at other restaurants and it was always a great experience. Our server was great, he paid attention to our needs and provided excellent service. The only bad experience was that they did not have the Omakase experience that was listed on the site. This may have been my fault, I should have called ahead to confirm but it was disappointing. We ordered some rolls and nigiri, and honestly it was average. Certainly no better than any other sushi joint I have been to, and the cost was really high. I will highlight the Toro, which was excellent. Overall a decent experience but certainly not worth the money. Your local sushi joint can provide you with the same level of food at half the cost.

    We have dined at Katsuya many times but last night was a disappointment. The place was packed and loud. Server forgot a couple of our dishes. Food was mediocre. Rolls were lackluster and sort of slapped together. Fried rice was bland. And our bench seat in our booth had lost all of its integrity and we felt like little kids because we were sitting so low compared to the table. All in all, just not what we expected and usually experience there. Hope the recent expansion has not taken a toll.

    Friends and I decided to get together for a great night of good conversation great food drinks and of course what other place would be better than here. I’m a 50 year old chef friends are lawyers psychologists business women upon arrival we checked in with the front desk and asked to be seated on the restaurant side keeping in mind this reservation was made Wayne advance the hostess denied our request and sat us on the bar side the whole night we were begging for the music to be lowered and the lights to be turned back on service by our waitress was great Jonathan the assistant manager was wonderful food and drinks are expensive so be prepared to pay how do we only just been sitting on the other side the experience would’ve been perfect sitting on the side on the bar side may be good if you’re young and single and you want to just drink and be loud but for us they should’ve known better not to see this there they try to make nice by bringing free dessert I appreciate that but I would’ve appreciated a conversation with my friends in an environment that was more pleasant much better

    Great outdoor atmosphere. Great service. Food was not good. It makes me sad that this restaurant has become so popular that they had to double their capacity. Now it’s like fast food. Pre-made tasteless sushi. The crab rolls used to be the best appetizer in town. They’re half the size and stupid expensive. I might go again for a drink to sit on the patio but I’m out on the tiny overpriced mediocre sushi.

    The kitchen or the service got our order wrong and we received items we didn’t order or we never received an item we did order and there was no compensation for the number of mistakes the server or kitchen made. Whereas other restaurants would have given compensation to the customer to compensate for poor service. Poor grade for customer service at Katsuya. I’ll stick to restaurants who take responsibility for their mistakes. Doesn’t Katsuya think that people would notice? Or that reviews would be written about them or do they think they’re exempt from customer service responsibility?
