  • "Excellent service! Very fine and beautiful people!!! Entertainment from beginning to end! Food amazing!!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I had been wanting to go to Katsuya for a while but it had fallen off my radar with the recent surge of new "must try" restaurants. We finally made it this past Saturday with another couple. Although we did have to wait about 25minutes past our reservation, it was worth it because we were able to get an end table. Had we not gotten this table, I would have been extremely upset with the seating..especially when you are at an expensive restaurant. They pack you in like sardines and the restaurant is extremely loud. I couldn't help but look at the other tables and feel bad for them. Overall, a pleasant experience since we got that end table. The brussel sprouts and kobe beef with foie gras are a must!!"

  • "At the end of our dinner, staff was eager to get us out of the place. Supposedly they had a big party coming, but there were a few tables empty and they had not the same urgency in cleaning the empty dishes."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This is an interesting restaurant. The design is odd- it's round and the tables are mostly along the curved wall with a few tables and a drink station in the center. This made for a slightly cramped seating, but also created an energetic feel without being too loud. Our server was fine, slightly pushy with the suggestions but that's Miami service. The food was really good but not great. We got a small edamame to start and I wonder what the large looks like, as the small was pretty big and tasted fresh. The wagyu was good as well, not wonderful, and was small but was enough for me when paired with a bowl of rice. My friend got sushi and said it was all good. Overall a very good meal, but maybe a little to funky for special occasions."

  • "The food was delicious! The Brussels Sprouts and crispy rice with spicy tuna are a must. The service was outstanding. Our server was very attentive and made great suggestions on what to order. I highly recommend this place!"

  • "I have been to Katsuya in LA and was so excited to try the South Beach location. It was nothing like the experience I had previously in LA. The space seems cramped with seating so close I could hardly get into my seat without hitting the table next to me. I had requested a private table far in advance and that was not honored. The atmosphere was a huge turnoff, and I was really let down! On a positive note the food was very good but not good enough to make up for everything else."

  • "From the moment you walk in you are greeted by everyone showing appreciation for you being there. From the busboy to the knowledgeable waiters it becomes an dining experience. Food are good portions well presented and delicious. Good wine list not overly priced. A great place to dine with family and friends."

  • "It was my one year anniversary and the seats are so close to each other the guy sitting next to me smelled like cigarettes . We got up and left it wasn't personal at all."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "This was my 2nd visit, just as wonderful as the first. Nicely dressed crowd! Classy people! Servers were polite and very attentive. Crispy rice with tuna appetizer, lovely twist! Seared tuna with Japanese salsa, lovely! My absolute favorite miso-marinated black cod, yum yum! Melts in your mouth! Can't wait for my next visit!"

  • "What an amazing place! Booked 2 weeks in advance. Read up on the menu beforehand and came in knowing vaguely on what we wanted to eat. Staff gave us an explanation on popular items on the menu and a bit of history about the venue. Gave us some recommendations and was exactly what we wanted which was the tasting menu. Tasting menu was fantastic. Service was exceptional. Great music playing in the background. Great atmosphere with chefs in the kitchen welcoming all guests arriving through the door. Highly recommended place to visit in Miami. Thanks for making our anniversary dinner an amazing experience."

  • "Good food, great service. Server was very knowledgeable. Food was a good portion, not too much, not too little. I had the yellowtail w/ jalapeno. It was dry, and I've had better at other spots, at 1/2 the price. But the best is at Nobu! (Pricey but worth it). Crispy Brussels sprouts were delish. I also had the lobster dynamite. But the lobster was masked with the "dynamite" sauce it came with, too rich that you miss the taste of the lobster so I just brushed it off the top. My partner had the wagyu tobanyaki and he enjoyed it."

  • "I really enjoyed Katsuya when I went! Our table wasn't quite ready when we arrived, so we went out to the bar next door that had an amazing cocktail menu! When we came back in, we were escorted to our table. The menu really outdid itself! Jane, our waitress was very friendly and we never needed to call for her. We had cocktails off their menu, which were divine, some of the sushi options and the specials. I couldn't get enough! Anjow, was quick to clean up our empty plates and cleaned off the table. All in all, this restaurant really lived up to the hype, as far as menu execution, service and overall ambiance. Very hip and a must for any foodie!"

  • "Loved the place. Sea Bass entree was highlight of our meals. Spicy drinks on cocktail menu were excellent: had both. However; seating for 2 is uncomfortably close to surrounding table. Was part of both conversation at either side of my table. I know good South Beach restaurants are full to capacity; but this is ridiculous. Will not be back anytime soon because of seating situation; even though the food and scene was great."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We just love everything about this place, the food is amazing, love the variety of the menu, service is awesome, it's a true hotspot. There is a bar outside called Hyde, it's a little challenging to get in to, but totally worth it..... We go every time we get the chance."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food was very good. Nice sized tapa-like portions with a diverse menu of options rarely seen elsewhere. A bit pricey but it's South Beach. No ambience to speak of."

  • "Terrance and his team are amazing! The food was great and the atmosphere was even better."

  • "Very cool place. We sat upstairs where there were comfy couches to sink into and sip drink. Yes, drink. The service was pretty slow at 11pm in the packed SoBe hipster place to be. Food was beautiful and delicious, but don't go if you are hungry! Having been to SoBe's trendy spots, this is what I expected. We all had a great time."

  • "Went with girlfriend and had the omakase dinner, was wonderful and was worth the $75 plenty of food. Server was very helpful, friendly, attentive and fast. I would go back in a heartbeat. Only complaint would be that the tables are very close together, they really pack them in here."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Love, loved, loved this place. The rock shrimp sushi roll And crunchy tuna roll were among the best sushi I've ever had - and I used to go to matsuhisa in the late '80s :)"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Went with 8 of my friends last night and everything single dish was wonderful. The crispy chicken salad will be the best salad of your life. Their rock shrimp was also very close to Zuma & Nobu's version. Sashimi was wonderful as well and everything was great for sharing. I ordered 2 edamame, rock shrimp, sashimi sampler and 1 class wine and that was $90 before gratuity. Great everything but you will have to pay "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Me and my best friends came here because I heard that this is one of Miamis top restaurants and we were going for a high scale appeal. This restaurant was just that! Collectively we had Lambcomps, Creamy Rock Shrimp, Wagyu Beef with Foie Gras, Rock Shrimp Tempura Roll, & Watermelon Cucumber Mojitos. We tasted each others food and it was superb. I expected the Wagyu Beef to be bigger but it was still delicious. Our Mojitos was refreshing but us ladies like something stronger. The only downfall is that one of the ladies had to wait on their food longer than the others. Other than that, the food and scenery was great. "

  • "The food really was amazing! The crispy tuna was to die for! Cost wise it really wasnt overpriced and the overall experience was great! (Also fab for people watching). Only thing to remember is its definately small portions and based more on taste than quantity."

  • "if you really want to go to a place full of want to be's that try too hard, then this is the place to find them. If you want a cool vibe or good sushi, go somewhere else. 3 people, 6 plates and some sake = $500. what a joke. Being a local, i won't be back anytime soon."

  • "Overall, we enjoyed our meal at Katsuya. The food was very good but the service was awful. Our waitress did not offer any suggestions on well known or popular items even after asking if it was our first time dining there. She was clearly disinterested/overworked. We were not checked on throughout the meal and couldn't find her when it was time to order dessert. Additionally, our water glasses were never refilled and it seemed like there was utter chaos throughout the dining room. When we finally did order dessert, it took 10 minutes for the waitress to let us know that they were out of one flavor. "

  • "Amazing fois gras, very good and tasty Rolls but the best was the steak with fois gras, great combination real gourmet. Also fried rice with spicy tuna was amazing. It costs but is valuable: 90$ per person is a right budget"

  • "Katsuya at SLS hotel south beach was pretty good. The food was good,service was pretty good. However, it was not as energetic as the one in Los Angeles on Hollywood Blvd. But overall, we had a good time and I would recommend this place for those who are up for some fine Japanese dining."

  • "Our group found the service is too fast giving the impression they needed us out to make way for the next people coming in. You need to slow it down so your clients can enjoy & take it all in. "

  • "If you do not mind condensation dripping on your head and food, then this is the place for you! Mid-meal you will find yourself watching a waiter cleaning the ceiling with a 20ft pole. #headsup. Food was excellent, service was great, ambience was decent. Aside from having to move our table due to air conditioning issues, it was a quality night. p.s. Not cheap..."

  • "We did the Omakase - chef's tasting menu. The sushi and sashimi were fantastic - fresh and flavorful. The in between dishes of shrimp and chicken skewers were mediocre and detracted from the otherwise excellent fish. Atmosphere was stylish and charged. Total cost was $215 for two, including one cocktail and one soft drink. I would return and order only fresh sashimi and sushi. Also, the welcoming calls to new guest arrivals from the open kitchen was a little silly, and frankly grew more annoying as the evening went on. Really not necessary to yell out in chorus each time.... I would also mention that prices should really be listed on the cocktail menu. Nobody likes surprises..."
