Katsuya was beyond amazing and the service was top of the line. Timothy was our server and he was exceptional. It was my husband's birthday and he helped celebrate it with good drinks, food recommendations, sushi rolls and with a birthday cake and candle. We tipped him extra for his great service and I hope katsuya recognizes him for his exceptional service. Thank you Timothy!

Food was served quickly but portions are small. Had to order second entree to fill up. Ordered the 24oz Wagyu Ribeye cooked medium. It arrived well-done. Didn't want to wait for another steak so ate it anyway.

The quality of the food was awful and the sushi is better at a cheap buffet then at this restaurant. We ordered 12 dishes of which half were sushi and half were cooked dishes. Four of the six sushi dishes were made from rice with the consistency of congee and the other two were acceptable to be received as sushi. However the lack of fish in the sushi was apparent as they consisted mostly of subpar sushi rice. We ordered two orders of the wagyu fried rice which consisted of less than two ounces of wagyu in each and the rice was way over cooked and had the consistency of oatmeal. This was my first experience at katsuya and I will say that this was no way worth 700 dollars and I don’t think I will ever go back.

The katsuya special roll was very disappointing! There was hardly any sashimi in the roll. Our waiter had no idea what to recommend. We have been to many sushi restaurants and eat it at least once a week- this was not worth the price.
The decor was great.

Vacation. Dinner. I thought I couldn’t go wrong with a sushi place. Wrong. Waitress was nice, service overall is ok. But the food not so much. Brussels sprouts over fried, oily, salty. Sushi rolls kinda tasteless, fish in question; no wonder it’s very dark on the patio so you can’t really see much of the food. Salad just ok. Miso soup was the best of the entire meal. Lobster was not bad, but very small. Shishito peppers good.

Service was not good. They forgot about us and never came by with dessert menus. The servers didnt appear to know which tables food was going to or who was responsible for our table

Food was below average. Really notwhat we exected after reading the great reviews from LA.

Poor service. I felt like I was rushed out of the place. Worst value in the resort.
The server took my wife’s drink order and then left without asking if I’d like something. I drank water.

Food was delicious, but frankly not enough to justify the pricing. Service was awful, and the tip is automatically added to the bill, so incentives are not aligned. Would not go back.

I enjoyed dining at Katsuya, the sushi was fresh and you can taste the quality. All of the appetizers were delicious, especially the hot stone Waygu. I had dinner with my fiancé and we both enjoyed the ambiance and the service was stellar!

Loud! Couldn’t have a decent conversation with table mates due to the painfully loud music which caused the restaurant patrons to increase their voice decibels. Food was so-so and very expensive.

The food was so good! And so were the drinks. My husband (who is picky) said the edamame was the best he ever had. (Get the spicy one). Food was very tasty. My husband got the steak dish and there was not much steak there. I don't think there was even 8 oz. I had the lobster, it had great flavor. Definitely want to get some apps before you eat dinner if you are hungry.

Forth time eating here. A favorite of ours when at Baha Mar. Food was very good. Atmosphere hip and lively. Very cool vibe and decor. Brussels sprouts and crab roll must not be missed. The striped bass and the lobster roll were phenomenal. Not sure how I have missed these on prior visits. I will say it is pretty pricey. Dinner for 4 was 600 before taxes and fees and we only had two drinks total for the table. Our meal was comped, but if you are footing your own bill, good to be aware.
