This is a restaurant for young folks. Music is techno, very loud and the lighting is dark. Food is okay, our server was very good but wrong spot for the over 50 crowd.

Great location if you're staying nearby. Way too dark inside and the service was OK but server focussed on her larger groups (tips win every time). The food is prepared by chef's and is very good although Nobu wins by a mile. Typically overdone on...More

I bet many folks drive up and down the Sunset Strip and don't even know Katana is there and that's a shame. It's good for me, cause I like that cause I always go here. Great spot, great food and nice people.

Comprehensive menu very well prepared. Wide offering of appetizers which was a meal in itself and provided a sampling of their menu from Fried Rice to Sushi.

Genuinely great food with a fantastic wine list. Service is excellent and the view from the balcony is a great example of LA. Definitely somewhere I’d go to again.

Went for dinner, sat on the patio. Great place for people watching. Beautiful building. Drinks are pricey, but look where you're at. Menu has lots of sharable, creative plates. They boast 3 kitchens that each do a different type of cuisine.

The inside tables are on the louder side but vary by area. Further from the sushi bar is generally quieter. Outdoor tables are not very loud but there is definitely moderate street noise from Sunset Blvd below

Katana is an extraordinary beautiful Japanese restaurant serving Robata, a form of Japanese tapas, traditional sushi, and a unique variety of Japanese cuisine. There is a Robata and sushi bar, and spectacular patio dining overlooking Sunset Strip.
