Katsura - Westin Prince Toronto Ratings and Reviews
There were only 2 other couples while we were there giving a feeling of lonliness.
The chef tried a few Teppanyaki triks, all of which failed.
The food was good but way over priced. I have been at other Tepanyaki restaurants in the GTA with a far more impressive performance.
The portions have dramatically gone down over the years. The Kobe is sliced so thin they cannot cook it properly and I question the quality as well. It is not my first time eating Kobe. The lobster was a half of a chix (less than a pound) and they charged over 30 dollars. As long as you stay away from there set meals you will be fine. Usually sit at Teppanyaki and always happy!
I was disappointed by the value and quality of the food. When we arrived we were greeted by the hostess who asked us to provided them with our license plate for parking even though the area was gated. The washrooms were out in the hall area and as it was extremely cold outside the washrooms were cool as well. We ordered from the A la care menu.. 2 Cali rolls and the Assorted Tempura and 2 Filet Mignon. The California roll was ok, but I have had just as good at the local take out for half the price. The tempura was terrible I found the shrimp to be soggy and in fact checked to insure that it had been cooked properly. The filet was fine, but the chef got the orders mixed up and served to the wrong people. Had the Champagne and Pear Sherbet it was great best thing of the evening. Over all $225.00 bill with tip. Not worth it for quality and quantity of food. Ambiance is old and tired it needs a face lift.. looks like the 90's called and they want there room back..
We've been coming to Katsura's for years, and every time it's a pleasurable experience.
We have read some negative reviews and believe those people just don't get it. If they're used to going to KFC, then Katsura's would be expensive to them. However, if you're a connoisseur of good food prepared in a unique way, in front of you, then, you can expect to pay for the privilege! And, frankly, the pricing is comparable to other fine dining establishments in the city. So, maybe those folks who are used to paying for KFC should stay there.
Katsura has a fine reputation and deservedly so. We will continue to come to this great restaurant.
I have been going to Katsura for 25 years and it never disappoints. Simon manages to make every guest feel right at home and special. The sushi chefs are not only expert, but intuitive and the sushi/sashimi is the best. We were 6 friends and 3 of us had the black cod and one friend said it was the best fish she ever ate! My son had some special platter that Simon recommended and it was a work of art. We spent 5 hours eating and drinking and it went by in an instant. LOVE this place. Tip: Eat at the Sushi bar for the full experience, unless you want to experience the tappanaki tables for the entertainment value.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. He loved it! It was our first time here. I would have said everything was just perfect but I really hated the attitude the lady at the front had, it really ruined my mood for sometimes. Every time I asked her a question she seemed very annoyed and just wanted to send me away. However, she was very friendly with her regular customers. We loved our serve, our chef, the food, the atmosphere, everything except the front lady. She really needs to change the way she talks to her new customers and not just be nice to regular customers.
Haven't been to this restaurant in about 17 years but my family took me for my birthday. What a disappointment! It was relatively empty and I know why...way too expensive! I don't mind paying good money for good food but mediocre food is so not worth what we paid. We sat at the teppanyaki table and there was no enthusiasm or excitement from the cook. Very disappointing to my entire family. We have been to many of these types of restaurants and they were so much better and so was the food. Unfortunately we will not be returning to this restaurant.
Very bad service, will not come again and will not recommend any friends! The restaurant doesn't want new customers! This time we are going to try summerlicious that they offer, and would like to see there menu to compare which is good! When we asked to compare with they seems look not willing to serve and give us our feeling ( go back to summerlicious, it is much cheaper) anyway no service no welcome, so disappointed to this restaurant. But luckily, I got this survey to say something here.
This restaurant has been on my list of favorites from years ago. We were there for a valentine dinner and I must confess it was a disappointment. It seemed dated and tired. The staff were good ( not great), the food mediocre, and the ambiance seemed non existent. We did not do the tapanyaki table, which perhaps was my mistake, but it didn't seem too lively in any case. We won't be in a hurry to return. 🙁
The food was excellent and the service was great. We were there on a dead night but they had a lot of staff ready to serve you Was pleasantly surprised by the dessert menu as I figured it would be Japanese and something I would not want but it was a nice selection and very good.
Overall good place. Decor seems dated and needs to be done up. If the interior decor is done up properly this place would rock. It has the potential to be one of the trendy spots in toronto for japanese food. Food is good value but everything looks a little outdated.
Service was good and food was very good too. Would seriously recommend updated the decor and revamp the restaurant to make it more modern and up to date.
This is one of the first Japanese restaurants in Toronto ( early 80's ?).
It was excellent at that time. However, I think it is getting a little 'tired' at this point.
The food was good, not excellent , and very high priced.
The ambiance however is very pleasant for older folks because it is old fashioned QUIET!
We can actually have a conversation with each other during dinner.
We went to Katsura for our anniversary dinner and after seeing the reviews I was a little concerned that the quality was slipping since the last time we dined there. I do feel the menu is a little pricey but I did the sake pairing set menu and it was very good...the Wagyu steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious! My wife's lobster was cooked perfectly and the sake soy glaze was also delicious. The service was fantastic and the gentleman that served us was polite, friendly, and very attentive. It is expensive but worth it for special occasions.
