Katsuya represents the prodigious pairing of the supreme talents of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and world-renowned designer Philippe Starck. The Sushi Bar is where celebrated chef Katsuya Uechi practices his trade of creating sushi masterpieces, using the freshest ingredients to create a dizzying array of custom rolls and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters. The Katsuya “Liquid Kitchen” creates some of California’s most intriguing and sought-after cocktails.
The recipient of Travel & Leisure’s 2008 award for Best-Design restaurant, Katsuya’s second outpost, at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, features the dynamic pairing of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and world-renowned designer Philippe Starck. A slight departure from its flagship Brentwood location, the décor at this locale is a bit more provocative- a reflection of its Hollywood environs. Katsuya Hollywood’s main dining room is anchored by a large Sushi Beat flanked by individual seats as well as two and four-person tables that can be served directly from the sushi chefs. Double-height ceilings create an airy, open space with four large black Noren curtains featuring the kanji symbol for Katsuya hanging from the ceiling above. Patrons can chose from multiple seating areas, either in the main dining room by the Susi Bar, or the more exclusive Dragon Lounge.
Designed by Philippe Starck, Katsuya Hollywood offers two private dinning rooms and an exclusive Dragon Lounge with an upscale VIP setting for private dinner parties and special events. The menu offers an unparalleled selection of Japanese cuisine by C

This is my most favorite sushi restaurant in LA. The atmosphere, the decor, the food all together creates that awesome upscale restaurant picture where each and every color is in its perfect place. The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood and the food, as expected, is always top notch. Must haves on the menu are; Salmon Sashimi with Caviar, Spicy Albacore with Crispy Onions and Sunset Roll. As for drinks, I always always order the Katsuya fresh and the grapefruit Cosmo. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. I LOVE Katsuya. Highly recommend!
Stopped in here last week after several months of walking by and being curious. I was treated to a fantastic array of delicious sushi (Rock Shrimp Tempura roll was the best), and some great drinks from the wet bar. Ended up staying after the meal for another cocktail and really enjoyed the atmosphere: trendy but not too in-your-face clubby. I will definitely return for cocktail hour if not for another dinner very soon.

I'll be honest. I had seen this place many times (often times with paparazzi huddling out front as some pop-tart dined within) and never gave it a fair chance. Finally my girlfriend dragged me to Katsuya on Hollywood and Vine kicking and screaming and I gotta say, I am eating crow right now. Katsuya is a fabulous restaurant.
Beyond the insanely mouthwatering food (my one ""you gotta get it!"" rec is the specialty rock shrimp tempura roll, but all of the sushi I sampled was pretty great), I was most pleasantly surprised by the courteous and attentive staff. Katsuya does indeed fit in well with the typical Hollywood ""too cool"" vibe, but the attention and advice I received from our server really made this experience for me.
I didn't want to go the first time, now I can't wait to return to Katsuya. Easily 5 stars.
In from the East, I figured I would finally give Katsuya a spin... and I must say, I was very pleased. Being a huge sushi guy, I found the quality and taste to be exceptional. The cocktails also were very "enjoyable", considering I had a few. Don't let Hollywood aspect of this place drive you away, it's a fine place to dine.

This is my favorite Hollywood restaurant to goto. Not because you can see the stars, but because the food is very excellent. A DJ in the restaurant shows that this has the nightlife feel of a club in that area, but it's still a relaxed atmosphere. Katsuya lives up to the hype!

Katsuya has a great cuisine including sushi and chinese food! My very first time in this resturant was a fantastic experiance. This has to be one of my top favorite resturants along with the chi dynasty resturant in studio city, they are both such great chinese cuisines.
