  • "First and foremost the servers are very well versed on the food they are serving, professionals. The wine list seems endless. The food, to die for. Overall the perfect place for a perfect evening."

  • "Disappointed... Food had a great presentation with no flavor."

  • "Katz is the best steak house in Corpus Christi, Texas. The food, service, ambiance... outstanding. You do pay the price. But for me it is totally worth it. It is not a place for kids. Not because there is anything kids shouldn't do or see... but it is just an adult place. If your kids are quiet, well behaved (don't ruin it for others) and you don't mind paying $50+ dollars for a meal then take them... If you want to have a lovely evening Katz is a great experience. I also took some clients for lunch... it was great!"

  • "I was in town for business, looking for a nice dining experience with a colleague. I certainly found that and more. My steak was unbelievably tender, juicy and flavorful - that is saying a lot since I like my steak more toward the well done side. I would definitely come back again. Great find!"

  • "Fantastic dinner at Katz 21. Excellent steak, salad and mushrooms. Waiter allowed me to choose the steak I wanted and it was cooked to perfection with wonderful flavor. Nice selection of wines, even offering numerous ones by the glass not listed on the menu. James is an excellent, attentive professional and his service was outstanding. I was treated like a king and I will be back."

  • "Due to very busy schedules, my husband and I, haven't had a date in a while. Katz21 was the perfect place for food, ambiance, and romance. We had a wonderful time."

  • "Excellent service. Pricey, I was little let down with the rib eye but was delicious."

  • "We visit our daughter who is attending college in Corpus Christi, perhaps every two to three months. Katz 21, whether at the old location downtwon or this new place, is always on the agenda. We have never been disappointed. Best steaks in town, wine list is extensive and fairly priced, and the wait staff, bartenders, etc., are unfailingly knowledgeable and polite."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My wife and I took another couple to dinner with us. We were extremely disappointed in the taste of the food. 3 of us had filet mignons. The steaks had absolutely no flavor. They tasted like just a chunk of meat. The side of asparagus was very bland. The salads were very good and my wife 's special of the day was very good(crab stuffed fish). But for the price of the meal, definitely not worth it. We have no desire to return."

  • "First time there. Pleasantly surprised. Food was great. Food did take longer to be served than I anticipated. If you dine late expect to eat late. Portions were perfect."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great food and service; terrible atmosphere if not seated in front room. I felt like I was dining in any hotel ballroom or convention center in the country. Went for a romantic anniversary dinner with my wife and felt, instead, we were at some convention dinner and kept waiting for the keynote speaker . . . listening to the group on the other side of the sliding partition sing "Happy Birthday" was not what I intended for my wife and I to share that evening. Made arrangements for flowers at our table through their associated link but that didn't happen either. Will go somewhere else next year for our 30th."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I was surprised that there were no Texas wines on the wine list. They had plenty of other choices, but I expect a restaurant like this to showcase the Texas wine industry. Also, this restaurant's menu says they are the "only prime steakhouse" in Corpus Christi, and that's just not true. This may be some kind of clever wording referring to the grade of beef they serve, but I found it deceptive, and seeing that phrase simply left a bad taste in my mouth."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "This was my first time at Katz since their move to the new building. My partner and I wanted to check the place out, since fine dining is scarce in Corpus Christi. The hostesses where a bunch of very young girls, who did not seem happy to be there at all. This was an awkward moment when we first entered; but I am glad to say it only lasted a minute until we sat down. Our waiter was extremely attentive, polite, and very knowledgable about the menu. I had the ahi tuna appetizer, the honey walnut salad, chicken athenian, and pecan pie a la mode. The chicken was fantastic, but I would skip the tuna appetizer. It wasn't bad, but it was just seared tuna with 3 small garnishes. A sauce would have helped."

  • "I had chef special, being a 16oz cheese stuffed chili crusted new York for 46 bucks. It sounded good but don't get it, it was WAY too salty..the rub combined with the salty cheeses put it over the line. That was not all sadly...it was clear that when they stuffed the steak, they used cold stuffing, thus the middle of the steak was RAW..not even rare. I like rare to medium rare but this was crazy..even the server was surprised when I showed him. He did a good job. My wife had a petite fillet, with grilled shrimp...server forgot the shrimp initially. Steak was seasoned well and tasted good but was under done. Wife asked for medium rare..it was rare. Sides were good ( mushrooms and baked potato) and dessert ( crème brulee) was excellent."

  • "I wanted to take my wife some where special for our anniversary, and it did not disappoint. A bit on the pricey side however everything was perfect. Would definitely dine here again."

  • "Very nice but way too expensive for the value received. Many other restaurants that have just as good food, atmosphere, etc. for 30% less."

  • "I went to Kats 21 on a first date and it was perfect, We had brusetta for appetizer and the toast it was on was very soggy but it was still ok. only thing is the waitress forgot to put in his bake potato and all the dishes are come plain you have to buy your side, he had ribeye and was almost done when the potato came out so he didn't want it. I had fillet milion and lobster tail with asparagus and crab meat We did not drink but did have two sodas the tab waa 150.00 with tip included It was fine dining have to be dressed nice and make reservations saw them turn away lots of people at the door. I was by far the youngest at 25 rest was 60+ not appropriate for kids."

  • "I couldnt have asked for anything more. Katz21 was by far the best dinning experience I've ever had. I had flowers delivered to arrive before we got to the restaurant and they even swapped out their usual candles in order to match the color of the flowers. Great experience!"

  • "This restaurant is quite expensive however the food is definitely worth it. My husband and I spent about $180 and got steak, salmon, three sides, one desert, and two mix drinks. The sides are meant to be shared. Our only complaint was that the steamed broccoli lacked significant flavor however it was still good just a little bland. Great for special occasions or if you're trying to impress."

  • "Somewhere between the wonderful walnut salad and the to die for Prime Rib impecably served by a very attentive wait staff that make you feel a little like royalty and why not it is a special occasion you may think of popping the question. But you may want to at least wait to taste one of the absolutely phenomenal deserts. Katz 21 where phenomenal gastrominal memories aremade."

  • "Celebrated our anniversary at Katz. From the hostess to the serverer, everyone was on their game. From the first course to the special "Happy Anniversary" note on the Sin Cake, the food was top notch. The evening was elegant and a night to remember."
    Dined on 10/15/2013
  • "We've eaten at Katz 21 a hundred times and it's always been over the top. But this time the food was horrible. I had "the special" and special it was not. The chili powdered filet mignon came way overdone. I had ordered it medium rare and it came very well done. It was dry and tough. And to make it worse, it was sliced into about 7 pieces so that whatever juice it had left was left on the cutting board. The potatoes were dry and bland. In retrsopect, I should have sent it back and gotten my regular order. Perhaps chalk it up to a bad night for the chef?"

  • "What a wine list! Rivals the wine list at the steakhouses in Houston and Dallas. Great food and a great bar for after your meal"
