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.

Probably the best meal we had in L.A. The outdoor dining area is perfect to have an amazing meal with a D.J. lightly spinning in the background. Our group was going to order the pre-fix tasting menu, when a gentleman advised us to allow them...More

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.
