Trendy place with a wait staff that does not seem trained for a service industry and less than mediocre food.

Stylish and posh, with great food. Sushi was outstanding, every single roll of piece of fish that was served was fresh, expertly handled and yummy. The Miso marinated black cod stood out from the rest, it was so delicate but bold and tasty. We also really liked the ceviche, and the rainbow roll, but really everything was great. Desserts were...

We recently had dinner here on a busy Friday night. The restaurant has a lot of energy but unfortunately that translated into an extremely loud meal. It was difficult to hear the waitress, as well as the other people at the table. The menu has a lot of options and variety. We tried a number of different things. I’d definitely... More

Katsuya in Brentwood is the best alternative to Nobu. The excellent taste and quality of the food, and the good price point will make you want to return. We had the Goldberg roll which was for a limited time only, and it didn't disappoint. Scrumptious!! I would have given Katsuya a 5-star rating, but for two things: (1) The drinks... More

Took my daughter for an early birthday dinner to Katsuya. The place was packed (it was a Thursday night) and very loud (it is a popular place after all). Disappointment came in the shape of half hazardously prepared basic sushi plates. I guess they forgot the sushi should be a treat for the eyes and the mouth. Our orders of... More

Very nice spot for food and people watching. Food is a bit on the pricey side , but excellent quality. Place has a very cool vibe with table seating and seating by sushi bar and grill. Valet parking.

The food here was just fantastic! The black cod entree was the best we have ever tasted. The sushi was very good as was the rock shrimp appetizer. The restaurant itself is very loud so its not a place where you can really enjoy a conversation, but the food makes a trip here worth it.

If you're going to Katsuya in Brentwood you know you're going to get good people watching, good food, and high prices. The food was delicious, the Crispy Rock Shrimp appetizer was awesome, the Crispy Tuna is great, and many of the cuts of sushi are top notch. They have a nice selection of sake's to try and the beer selection... More

I eat here a lot. It literally is always good. The service sometimes will struggle a tiny bit if the restaurant is super busy but it is usually great. You'll want to make a reservation on weekend nights for a table but you can almost always get away with showing up with 2 or 3 people and sitting at the... More
