Very expensive but very good. If you want an expensive and unique meal in L.A. Visit Katana. No problem except the price. However, it is worth every penny.

If you are looking for a place with a nice atmosphere, upbeat yet romantic vibe and good quality Japanese food, this is it! My personal fav are the fish stewards, so good and lean! The popcorn shrimp is also out of this world.

Great spot for sushi on the sunset strip. Stayed at the Mondrian hotel so the location was perfect. The appetizers and the sushi were 10/10. Great restaurant.

This place is right in front of the Mondrian hotel and very convenient for late night eats. The food is great and place itself very beautifully decorated.

One of my fav asian restaurants in Los Angeles. The location is incredible, especially if you get a table on the balcony outside. There is usually a DJ playing so makes for a great atmosphere. The food itself is amazing and at a very reasonable price too. I visit here every time I'm in town!

I ordered sushi, sashimi, hand rolls and pop corn shrimps. They were all mediocre. Service wasn't attentive nor friendly. My wine arrived late and my... More

While not a frequent visitor to Katana, we have visited Roku (previously Sushi Roku) many times and had positive experiences. Therefore I was a bit taken aback by how different the experience was here. - Sat us 10 minutes late - Took 15 minutes to get water, after asking for it. Even longer to get a drink - Brought wrong...

We were recommended Katana by our hotel concierge, there was our first mistake! Service well, unfortunately we had none, actually it took about 20 minutes to even be acknowledged by a staff member! The sushi we had was good, but we also had a chicken dish which was over cooked and chewy!!!!

Katana is a great ace for sushi and Robata style offerings. Great service and people watching. Bring money as this place is also very expensive. Definitely a place to be seen as stars regularly eat there and the whole outdoor mid level seating is really cool. Heat lamps too for those who can't handle the cold. Overall amazing service and...
