Very fun sushi place on our trip to SoBe. We enjoyed everything in our meal and definitely didn't spend as much as I thought we would.

Just as good as LA
Had the Omakase. Well worth the price. Eat every last bite. (minus what I was forced to share with the wife). The sticky rice is outrageous as is the ceviche. Rolls were delicious as well.

Our favorite hot spot in Sobe
After many years of Nobu being one of our only choices in South Beach for food.... Finally we have Katsuya. Not only the place is pumping but the food is insanely good. Service is great and the hotel is hot! We love it!

very good japanese restaurant
My family and I went to Katsuya for a special occasion. We had the omakase (chef selection). The first dish was amazing (don't miss the crispy/creamy shrimps), but I was not not too crazy about the robata grill skewers. The service was very friendly.

We love the south beach scene. The bar is great, he food follows to impress.
We go there all the time...

Andre the restaurant manager was exceptional - from the knowledge of the staff and the attention to detail from everyone there - Andre runs a great restaurant and it shows. This will be my go-to-place on the beach.

Great room, our server was very helpful, We had seven different things and all were soo good. Our fav was the Miso Black Cod. It's a very cool spot for a great dinner! Will return.

The best sushi
Some of the best sushi I have ever had. Totally worth the expensive price tag. Also, don't come if you don't like a lively atmosphere.

The best sushi I have ever had--delicious flavor and creative dishes. Great service, hopping scene. Overall excellent experience. Highly recommend.

We celebrated my daughter' s and my birthdays while on vacation in South Beach and it was a wonderful experience. The food was amazing; EVERYTHING was really exceptionally good especially the rock shrimp sushi, the crispy rice appetizer, and the rainbow roll. The restaurant is very nice and is inside the SLS hotel which ia really beautiful. All in all, it was a wonderful meal and wwe' ll definitely go back next time we' re in town. Just note, it is expensive.

Great food - get table downstairs
Amazing food - rock shrimp app is heaven. Very cool scene. Would love to go back. They were super accomodating when we arrived early after a show. Be sure to request a table downstairs. It was our first time there & we were just excited to be there. Downstairs is an awesome scene. When they took us to our table, we went upstairs & we were thinking, wow, we didn't even know there was an upstairs. Upstairs they attempted to look really cool & everything, however, there are no windows & it seems like it was a utility closet & decided they needed more room to put people into. It's decorated really nicely but more of an overflow area where they stuck some dinner tables. We didn't know any better or we would have requested a table downstairs.

Really, really good
Our new favorite sushi restaurant - outdistances itself from the rest!

BEST OF THE BEST
Katsuya is truly my favorite restaurant in all of Miami! I can't say enough good things about it. I have been there countless times, have tried almost everything on the menu and EVERYTHING is delicious!! A few of my all time favorites are the Tuna Crispy Rice, Baked Crab Hand Rolls, Miso Black Cod and Stripped Baze. And let's not forget dessert - the donuts are easily one of the most delicious things I have ever tried! On top of the phenomenal food quality, the service is top notch. The staff as well as the senior management are warm and friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have an unforgettable dining experience. If you have never been to Katsuya, please go!! You will not be disappointed!

Katsuya never disappoints
Second time dining at Katsuya and it was amazing again! The food is exceptional and the sushi amazing. Service was top notch and very helpful when trying to decide what to order. Perfect dining experience.

Best experience in SoBe in years
I went with 3 friends for dinner on a Saturday evening. We were seated within 2 minutes to a great table. Our waitresss was pleasant and efficient. The menu is a good mix of sushi and sashimi dishes with less typical dishes such as a kiwi and scallop appetizer, soft shell crabs and robatas. Everything was very good. Taking into account the number of restaurants In South Beach, and the on-going disappointment with touristy and over-hyped places , Katsuya shines as a exception. It is a great place, I will go back.

Katsuya at its best
I have had the pleasure of dining at 2 different Katsuya locations. San Diego - where service was mediocre at best, Brentwood where the staff was as snobby as the clientele. The South Beach location was fantastic. Although upon our entrance the 6 hostesses greeted us with blank stares, once seated we had the pleasure of being served by an incredibly knowledgeable, patient (as we kept asking all sorts of questions) and friendly server - he had the demeanor of Vince Vaughn's many funny characters. The yellowtail hamachi, small morsels of delightful yellowtail just melts in your mouth. The 2nd most favored is the crispy tuna, a signature Katusya dish-yum yum! Main dish - Miso Cod - i'd say better than Nobu. cocktails were creative and tasty.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, great scene
Came here for a bachelorette group of 10 girls. The food was fantastic and the scene was entergetic. I will be back!

Tapas style. Excellent food
Tapas style. Excellent food and portions
Reasonably priced except for the coffee- $10.00 per cup with no refills since is "cafe American"--espresso mixed with water.
Would definitely return.

The food is delicious. The wait staff is very friendly and makes good suggestions. It is attached to another wonderful restaurant with great outdoor seating.

For that fun evening!
If what you're looking for is a place with great sushi, great service, and great ambience, then this is it. I went with a friend and we both filled our stomachs until we literally couldn't hold another morsel. Service was exceptional! Among the many different dishes that I devoured, 'the Miso Marinated Blackened Cod' was phenomenal. All fellow patrons that I saw were nicely dressed, which always.adds to the dining experience. Can't wait to return with a larger group. We never sat with empty plates or glasses. Waiters and bus boys appeared to actually enjoy their jobs. Kudos to KATSUYA, great team, loved every minute!

good spot to see good looking people food is very good also the service too.

Food Fusionitas with Design
The SLS Hotel is a gorgeous and a gem. This Japanese themed restaurant on the lobby level off the outdoor patio serves extremely fresh and well prepared morsels, tapas and entrees. The Branzino Schezhuan entree was particularly delicious -- though, you'll definitely want to the sauce on the side -- to accent the flavor and not overpower the fish. The foi gras steak was exploding with flavors as was the salman tartar appetizer. Drinks are a little steep -- but the Miami Spice menu is a MUST. Bon Apetit!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful service and there is even beach access so you can go for a romantic stroll after dinner. Really reasonable pricing for the great environment and amazing food. Dining during Miami Spice was a total steal as well. Definitely going to bring any out of town guests here in the future!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's not cheap to dime here but I would say worth your money, great ambiance, tasty food, fun scene.
Nice place for a date, your partner would be happy if you take her/him there.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food but way overpriced!
The food was above average, but there are better Sushi places for that kind of money. My meal with 3 beers cost $200. Kudos on their inventive dishes but the sushi was merely correct.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
bacholerette night out
Katsuya is located inside the luxurious, hip SLS hotel which includes an outside bar facing the spectacular pool. Katsuya has great exotic signature cocktails and the quality of the ingredients especially the seafood and rice used in their sushi speaks for itself.
Dont go hungry, portion sizes are small but fair, and great to try several dishes for sharing.
Definitely a very cool hangout and amazing food.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Most Memorable Meal
From the baked crab hand rolls to the short rib robata, every bite at Katsuya was delicious. If my waistline could have handled it, I would have ordered more and more. Definitely try the eggplant, foie gras and short rib robatas, the baked crab hand rolls and the salmon sashimi with caviar. Wash it down with a Katsuya Fresh - pure heaven.
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
la comida muy buena
Es super recomendable el rest los platos son muy ricos.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
good service and great food
It took 3 days to get the chef's roll off my mind. It was so very refreshing.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing culinary experience
Food is inventive & 5 star delicious
Great cocktail menu- highly recommend the 'vitamin c'

The noise in the restaurant
The noise in the restaurant made it a little difficult for the waiter to hear our orders. Food was delicious though. Very trendy place.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating a Bday and had a great time. the food was good, my friend ordered the Steak and was the only thing we did not like. We loved the spicy Edamame!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
i have been to many sushi restaurants, katsuya by far was the best .
food is outstanding !!!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, Service..couldn't get enough!
The entire staff at Katsuya (The hostesses, Erin our waitress, Justin..) were absolutely amazing, Made our special girls' weekend very very memorable. Thanks everyone!!!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happens to be a slow night which was favorable from a service perspective. Manager was extremely nice and friendly. Sushi, to drinks to apps were great! No complaints!
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely a great spot! The food was spectacular, the atmosphere lively, and the service was top notch. The crispy rice with spicy tuna and baked crab hand roll appetizers were phenomenal - we could have just ordered these over and over again. The sashimi was very fresh, and the service was superb. Definitely a place we will be returning to.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best on the Beach
Katsuya in the SLS Hotel is a staple. Beautiful people, fantastic food, great ambience. Andre Lira sat us in a great table for a big party, very accommodating. I even got my favorite martini brought over from the Bazaar. Will of course go back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The appetizers were tasty, and the main course was delicious. Portions are not huge, so make sure to order appetizer and dinner.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
As good as I heard it would be...
Katsuya was amazing! The food was delicious and served promptly, the atmosphere was just right, and the cocktails delightful! Will definitely be back next time we're in SoBe. It's in the SLS, so it's just what you'd expect.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is one of my favorite places to go. Food is very good. Andre the manager is outsanding and always awake on what is going on. Elsa the waitress I had last week is fenomenal knows very well her job and very good customer service oriented.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, not as good service.
Katsuya has good food, but not so good service. Very noisy and crowded restaurant .. Noisy ambiance!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Upscale and expensive but service was terrific and so was the food. Order specialty items - they were the best.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was so interesting, I really enjoyed it and I can not eat seafood because I am allergic. There where so may wonderful option!

Great restaurant in Sls hotel!
Great restaurant in Sls hotel! Food and Service were Wonerful! Kyle our waiter was Fantastic! Do not miss this new find in south beach!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
If you like Nobu, Matsuhisa, TAO, ZUMA then Katsuya and it's sisters will add another great experience to your list. Nice relaxed atmosphere good to experience one on one or limited amount of friends, it's not a group place. Music is loud and adds vibe but still allows for conversation. Staff is efficient and dynamic without resorting to traditional serving, these are individuals like we now see more and more, with a personality. Food is real good, reasonably priced for place like this, def a reason to visit regularly.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love going out and Katsuya is one of those places we keep gravitating towards, we love the food, the service and the ambiance. It is a hot spot in South Beach. We try to go as much as we can! I highly recommend reservations.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is Sushi on steroids. Outstanding flavours and excellent presentation. Service was prompt and engaged. Most importantly, we very knowledgeable about his restaurant.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great sushi trendy design
I really enjoyed the food. Sushi chefs are great. It's a bit too noisy as I don't like to digest great food in a disci scene. Starks desigh is very cool- so is some of the stuff.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place to go if you love good food!
The baked crab roll is amazing!!!
