    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 4/7/2012
    This restaurant is moving locations. We happened to go there the last night they were open at this location. They do not open at the new location until June. But, we are really hoping that the new location leaves these bad vibes behind. The atmosphere was dark and dank. The food was sub par. Neither one of us would go back to the location the current restaurant. We are hoping that the food tasted as bad as it did because it was the last night there. The server was great and attentive. When are food came out incorrect she quickly took it back as soon as she saw it. She didn't even let it touch our tables. She made sure our drinks were refilled often. The restaurant was loud because of table set up and it was very hard to have a conversatio

    This was our first time trying Katz. It was an open table recommendation, and I had yet to find a good steakhouse in corpus. This place was excellent. The food was outstanding, and the whole dinner was extremely impressive. This was the best steakhouse I've been to in about 6 months.

    Katz 21 Steak & Spirits is possibly the best restaurant in town. A year ago I took my girlfriend there and just after dinner I asked her to marry me. She said Yes and I feel that the elegant atmosphere and wonderful cuisine helped seal the deal. I iften recommend Katz 21 to friends and family. This Year's Valentine's Dinner with my Fiancee was fabulous.

    This is an excellent restaurant. I have have never had a bad meal. The filet mignon is the best steak in town. The service has always been wonderful, except on Valentine's Day. Although the 6-course meal offered on Valentine's Day had great varieties to choose from, the wait for dessert was just too long, even considering the busy night. It took at least 40 minutes to get dessert from the time we finished our main entree. I'll go back to the restaurant, but it just won't be on Valentine's Day.

    Katz21 was my first experience on Valentines Day. It was excellent!. The 6 course meal was specially priced. My girlfriend receiving a single red rose by the hostess was a very nice touch. I will be coming back.

    It was date night for my husband and I. Wanted something off "restaurant row" in Corpus Christi, so picked Katz based on a friend's recommendation. It was Thursday night right around 8. It was quiet at this time downtown. Parking is just across the street-very close. The doormen was a surprise, as I can't remember any other restaurant that provides this. The ambience was nice and very quiet despite someone's rather angry baby. The waiter, Andrew, was eager to please and it felt as if we were his only customers. The price's are definitely $$$, but with their attention to detail, it was worth it. Their steaks compete with the best out there, and overall presentation well done. Don't forget to make reservations. :)

    Upscale dining experience. Charming, romantic, "era gone by", type of atmosphere. Shrimp and Crab Cake Appetizers were excellent, Rib Eye Steaks were Prime, Substantial and cooked to perfection, Au Gratin Potato, Cream spinach, and Sauteed Mushroom Sides were very good, but could have been served warmer, Pecan Pie ala mode, Creme Brule, and Cheese Cake were all to die for Deserts! Beer was serve cold and the California Pinot Noir bottle of wine was great. Our waiter was outstanding. Overall a wonderful dining experience from start to finish.

It is one of the finest restaurants I have been to in a long time and especially here in Corpus Christi. I want to thank them for a memorable night for the both of us.

    The meal was outstanding, but it took an hour after placing our order to get our entrees. They did apologize and knocked several dollars off the final tab, but it did delay our plans for the remainder of the evening. I will give them another try in the event this was an anomaly. The food is quite good.

Our last visit on a saturday night was less than a great dining experience and was diappointed with the quality and quantity of the food. Wait staff continues to be supberb. Not terrible by any meany but fell of quite a bit. Bad night possibly, but most people who pay the money have high expectations and the reason we keep coming

    My sister and I were visiting Corpus Christi in October, 2011, and found Katz 21 online while surfing for higher-end restaurants. The service, food and staff were excellent. I was glad to hear they are constructing their own restaurant building at a new location. The present site is in a depressed area of downtown and seems to be the only decent business in the surrounding area.

    Very nice dining experience. We had seared tuna and stuffed flounder. Food was very fresh and flavorful. Flounder slightly overdone and a bit heavy on the basil in the veggies, but these are nitpicks. Generous and tasty sides: au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach. Stuffed mushrooms are a must starter. We will be back next time we are in town.

    OMG! One of the BEST meals I have had in a long time. I had Steak & Lobster - the steak was SO perfect and tender I could almost cut it with my fork! My Best Friend had Crabbed Stuffed Tuna that was PHENOMINAL! The French Bread & Butter that was served with the meal tasted like it was made an hour from hitting the table. We also had a wonderful appetizer selection. Our Waiter (Ty) was AWESOME and recommended a Pinot Grigio with our meal. The entire experience was 5 Stars, without hesitation. P.S. We are from Austin and went to Corpus for my Birthday weekend. I wanted a VERY NICE Dinner out...my wish came true. Dined on 8/5/11.
