This was our first visit and we were a little unsure of how to order. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining that we could cook our own food in the grill in table, order sushi, tempura, or do a hibachi dinner in the other...More

I've been coming to this place since they opened (at the original and the new location). Top notch chefs, great wait staff, fantastic food. This evening though was the exception. I took my family out to celebrate my birthday (but did not announce it to...More

The low light setting helps give an authentic feel and sets the mood for dinner. There's also a patio type room which offers bright natural light and plenty of windows to see and hear action going on outside on the avenue. I eat their sushi...More

This is a downtown favorite and one of the best sushi places I’ve been. Jalapeño yellowtail sashimi has to be one of the best dishes west of Tokyo. Everything you want in a sushi place or hibachi, and nothing you don’t.

We've been going to Katsuya for years and used to prefer it to their sister (original) location, Nakashima's. However, since their recent move, the service turned into a joke. The host stand is unprofessionally staffed--the lobby full of waiting customers do not need to hear...More

We decided to go the evening of our show at the PAC, which is right across the street. We were able to sit in the garden room immediately and had a server at our table literally within seconds. The sushi was great and they made...More
