We arrived in time for sunset which was terrific. Wait staff was attentive and personable. Food was very carefully plated but only ok not more. I will look for other more personal interactions with sushi chefs in the future in Laguna Beach.

The sushi was fresh but overall average taste, priced on the higher end (I think they are trying to sell an "atmosphere fee" for the privilege to dine in Katsuya). It felt very out of place for Laguna beach, the decor seemed to be a...More

My daughter and I love sushi. We drove six hours to California from my daughter's home in Phoenix to find some really good sushi in Laguna Beach. Well, the truth is we actually drove to Laguna Beach to take in the beach, but as luck...More
