  1. If you don't do omakase at any of them, sure.
    But I really feel you won't get much at either at any of those for that amount.
    Anyway, avoid Koi. It's more about celebrities than it is fish.
    Between Katana and Katsuya, I would pick Katsuya.

    1. Katsuya

      In that order.

      1. I agree to both of them above. Koi is a scene.

        1. I say Katsu-Ya but definitely SKIP the Brentwood location and hit the non-scene'ish location on 3rd Street.

          1. Had my first dinner at Koi last night. Yes, it is a scene and there are scary Hollywood stereotypes at almost every table, but it was easy to get a reservation and everything that we had was delicious! I highly recommend the Crispy Rice topped with Spicy Tuna, Seared Albacore with Crispy Red Onions and the Eel & Avocado Roll. Very good desserts as well...
