OK. But not 5 stars... – This place is over rated! It is more about the atmosphere than the food. The food is ok but not great. The prices are WAY too much! The spicy tuna on rice is like a rubber with spicy tomatoes. Adamame are too salty. The only dish I like is there fried onions with Albacore.

Overall 2 stars. Don't forget the parking at LA Live is $20 + dollars!

Great sushi, especially for a "chain" – So maybe not a chain, but I know there's a few Katsuya's around town. I needed to seriously take my mind off of the Lakers game on Sunday and I went here hoping to get super drunk on imported Japanese beer (which, for the record, was delicious), but after my first sashimi (albacore=mouthwatering) I decided to focus on the food and I was not disappointed.

I would recommend anything, but I stayed on the raw side and loved the Rock Shrimp Tempura roll, as well as the Yellowtail and Scallop rolls. Knowing such a great place is so close to my favorite social stomping grounds means I will be here a lot, and you should definitely make a trip as well.

5 stars.

GET THE BAKED SALMON – I was recently in town on vacation and decided to stop through Katsuya in Downtown L.A. with my wife. Being from out of town and brainwashed by stereotypes of LA, I was expecting to get ripped off and walk out of there still hungry, but Katsuya did everything right to please this big Midwestern appetite.

I'm not one much for sushi, but the wife ranted and raved about every dish she tried, especially the yellowtail and California rolls. I opted for a slightly more traditional Baked Salmon dish, and it freakin' blew me away, one of the best pieces of fish I've ever had.

And on top of that, the service and staff were uncharacteristically courteous and helpful, even helping my wife pick out the best tasting and best valued items. Everything I expected from a sleek-looking trendy nightclubby type place was completely wrong. Katsuya gave us a great experience and great food. I haven't been able to stop talking about it since returning home, so I figured I'd mention it one last time here. If you're in L.A., you will not be disappointed by swinging through Katsuya.

SBE's super sleek sushi spot goes downtown at L.A. Live. – L.A.'s sceniest sushi house has finally gone downtown with this enormous space that continues the collaboration between sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and designer Philippe Starck. Paying homage to the traditional bento box with lots of black and red (including the um, carpet), the palette here is much darker than the other three locations, save for the flat screen TVs scattered about and the huge outdoor area that glows beneath the vibrant lights of Nokia Theater. Still, the 7,500 square foot space keeps the signature elements in tact: oversized images of kohl-lined geisha eyes and crimson lips, white plastic chairs, Napoleon III mirrors, a huge central sushi bar and a "liquid kitchen" where all those delicious specialty cocktails are crafted. The menu's got all the raw and cooked standards fans have come to enjoy, but there are also some downtown exclusives you won't find at any other Katsuya location. Namely, mini Kobe burgers, spicy chicken wings, fried calamari, raku mori and Berkshire pork tonkatsu (all which happen to be on the happy hour list weekdays from 5pm-8pm) and two drinks: Shiso-Sexy, a mix of muddled Japanese shiso leaves, essenced vodka and sour cherry juice and the Dragon, a tasty combo of Grey Goose vodka shaken with yuzu and ginger.
