Do not go. – This place is an absolute joke. The reservationist's are exstremely rude and the restaurant service is terrible. For the prices you pay the restaurant is a complete dissapointment. Two words: OVER RATED
Great scene, OK food – Katana certainly is a glamorous dinner destination. Beautiful people, trendy clothes and plenty of stiletto heels. The outside patio is delightful for both eating and cocktail-ing, mainly because you get the benefit of checking people out as they're coming and going. The food is just OK. Sure, the kabobs are pretty cool and pretty good, but nothing better than you could accomplish on your own. Chicken-stuffed mushrooms were simply unexceptional; cod was suspiciously fishy. The dipping sauces, though, are excellent. And the spicy spicy tuna roll was quite appealing. But fabulous? I think not.
$14 for Valet Parking – Well ,The Valet was 14 dollars and the edame was too salty and overcooked. My Sashimi salad was "not as fresh" as should be but it was only $8.00. The Sushi I ordered was below average, Overall the atmoshphere and vibe made up for the so so meal. I will go back and give it another try if they could get better waiters who know how to make better suggestions to first timers. Menu was confusing and was not explained by inexperienced young staff. Location is everything, isn't it? That is what they have. Good atmosphere as well.
High Priced Style – This place is beautiful inside and out, it is a cool spot with lots of trendy people, and a place that even stars show up at. If you just want to hang out in a dimly lit, stylish, Japanese restaurant and then Katana is the place to. The food is good but not worth money, it is very pricey yet very average.The staff is friendly, they get very busy but the service is satisfactoy. I would suggest going to this place just because of the atmosphere.
Hip Spot – The owners of Sushi Roku and Balboa have pulled out all the stops for this stylish new eatery. Sit at the robata bar and watch your food as it gets grilled. A great new food experience.
