Katana on Bay Ratings and Reviews
This was an ok meal. The restaurant itself is kind of rundown. I specifically went for the tuna on crispy rice and it was awful. I've been to the katana in Chicago and their crispy rice is pan fried this one was deep fried with cornmeal coating and it wasn't a tuna pate it was more of a tuna salad on top. It was an ok place. I was expecting something more cozy and welcoming but it just seemed like a lunch place for all the people working in the building.
Very interesting twists on classic Japanese dishes. Hot oil hamachi, wagyu gyoza in pork broth, and toro tartare were phenomenal. Very strong sake (and wine) list. Had a killer off menu Last Word (mezcal's the secret). But champion of the night was the truffle scallop carpaccio--unbelievable. One of the most truffle-forward experiences I've had. Kudos!
We did the summerlicious menu at Katana on the Bay. The fish was fresh and delicious but the veggie options were just about OK. I've had much better desserts elsewhere - the doughnuts and the sake cheesecake were nothing to write home about. Overall, I didn't think the summerlicious menu was value for money; I would recommend doing the a la carte menu especially if you are vegetarian.
The quality of their food fell below my expectations immensely.
According to the restaurant's website, they deliver fresh and sophisticated dining experience. The dining experience was sophisticated; however, I felt the ingredients used were not "fresh". Regardless, the servers were very nice and the space is beautiful.
I personally think this establishment can better be thought of as a lounge/bar rather than a stand-alone restaurant. In my personal opinion, I believe the food is overpriced for what one receives. I really wanted to enjoy the food here and I was honestly excited about eating here. I must say that I find myself disappointed by what I was presented with tonight.
Had a great meal at Katana. There is a nice variety of modernist sushi and sashimi and dishes from the kitchen. Spicy beef and crispy cauliflower were tasty as were the sashimi and rolls. Service was genuine and also very quick. It's not too busy on weekends as I believe this is more of a week day lunch spot, so it's nice and quiet with modern ambiance.
The food was over priced for the sheer lack of quantity that you receive. The taste was mediocre. We ordered fried calamari (lack of rings, although tasty), dumplings (mediocre and only 3 very small bites), spring rolls (tasty). We also had individual orders - mainly dynamite shrimp rolls. The rolls tasted stale on the outside and overall WAY TOO SALTY. The taste of our main courses across the table have been a general subpar feeling for each of our meals. Will not be back due to the price and lack of taste of our main courses.
After living in Vancouver for sever years I'd thought there wouldn't be any restaurants in Toronto that could compare but Blowfish proved me wrong. Easily the best sushi I've ever had. Sake list was impressive and a perfect pairing for the melt in your mouth sashimi. Worth every penny. Fantastic service. Perfect place for a late night dinner on a night out in the big city.
