Success! Thanks for posting your review of Izakaya Katsuya. You’ve done the world some good today.

Hold on to your plate!

The food was delicious but the service left a lot to be desired. We felt rushed, terribly rushed. At one point, we literally had to retrieve a plate which still had food on it - unbelievable. Our table was cleared while we were still chewing and swallowing our food. It happened on two occasions so I""m not sure I will go again. Not exactly a relaxing experience with the staff hovering over your head anxious to yank... view more

Tasty sushi!

Sure the crowd is loud and scene-y, and things get packed at this Katsu-Ya 3rd Street fave super quickly, but the sushi is fresh, packed with melt-in-your-mouth awesomeness and definitely worth a visit. I went last month for a friend's birthday dinner, and we scarfed down many servings of the creamy rock shrimp tempura & seared albacore with crispy onion. The verdict? It was all tasty enough to make up for the ri... view more

Food Borne Illness, need I say More?

First off, I am a self proclaimed sushi snob, I grew up in LA eating sushi since I was 3 at Teru Sushi on Ventura, and have since searched out the best of the best in LA.\r This place is a category all on it's own. I would recommend Sushi Mac down the street before I recommend this place. If you like sceney restaurants that are overcrowded with loud vapid 20 somethings texting during dinner about what club to go to ... view more

Katsua food for Less. Very friendly, professional staff...from Japan.

This place is very popular. If you don't want to wait, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RESERVATION! Or Don?t complain about the wait..its your fault for not making the reservation. The place being popular and being over crowded is not their fault..think this way, that means they sell their fish from right to left, and you?re getting freshest fish cut on your sushi! Front desk is fine, in my opinion, its just that the restaurant ... view more

Service needs improvement

I was so excited to see that there was casual version of Katsuya, but the service was a huge let down. Granted, we did not have a reservation. When we arrived we were told the wait would be 25 minutes, it ended up being over an hour. Groups with reservations were waiting over 15 minutes for their tables. It seems this location may be a bit small for big groups and probably should seat on a first come-first serve basi... view more

Great sushi, great atmosphere, good prices

Izaka-ya as well as the Katsu-ya in Encino/Studio CIty as well as Katsuya in Hollywood/Brentwood all live up to quality sushi, with a great atmosphere. Izaka-ya, the newest of them serves up similar dishes to that of Katsu-ya, but with the celebrity atmosphere. The chefs are great, as well as the fish. Prices are very good as well. Sushi has always been fresh, and comparing to other joints, I have to yet find a plac... view more

BEST sushi in Los Angeles. This is not opinion, it is fact

I have eaten sushi at just about everywhere that serves it. Katsuya used to be open only in the valley. I would drive from Beverly Hills to it everyday just to eat there...then this place opened. Without a doubt, the BEST sushi in Los Angeles. You have to try it for yourself but believe me you will end up being one of those ppl who form a line 30 mins before they open just to get your fix

Katsuya Outlet

If you want great sushi and Japanese-style tapas, but don't care about beautiful decor or great service, then Izaka-ya by Katsuya on Third is a must-try.\r The food is the same as his upscale SBE restaurants, but at a fraction of the price. It's still more expensive than your neighborhood sushi bar, but the quality is probably better and the variety definitely is.\r They have their own signature items here that yo... view more
