What an absolutely fantastic meal with my beautiful lady. The staff was awesome, food was out of this world (we got the prime chef’s selection option), the ambiance was perfect, the music was upbeat and fun, and we both walked away spellbound. It’s not often that a dining experience builds the perfect night like this did.

Pagué por 4 personas 450 dólares
Me cobraron 60 dólares de propina y el mesero DAVID me reclamó que faltaban 30 centavos en mi cuenta total.
Pésima actitud.

Food and presentation extremely disappointing, very bland and very boring. For the price compared to other restaurants in miami that we visited had no comparison. Service was really slack and the interest of the waiter was minimal. We would not recommend it. Everywhere we went was packed and this restaurant had less than 6 tables taken so that very much spoke for itself!

I'm very disappointed with Katsuya! Went with my daughter and I order from Miami Spice and she did from the menu. Waityer said in a table, when somebody order Miami Spice, everyone has to do it. I told her to cancel and bring my check for the drinks. I told her I'll report them to Miami Spice. Then she BS me saying she will talk to the manager to allow me order the way I want. She came back saying the Manager allowed me to have only one having the Miami Spice. We ate. it was below our expectations and I will never come back!

The waiter J.C. was great and extremely knowledgeable. The food is high end with tremendous flavor but executive chef plates that are shareable. It’s pricey but worth the experience and I would go if you’re looking for an amazing experience with amazing food. Anniversary ways our occasion.

The food was not exciting, deep fried shrimp with a sauce poured over is not my idea of fine dining. This was for the Miami spice menu. The restaurant is getting tired as well, although the staff were friendly, wine list was a bit stuffy too. Too many selections over $100 and not enough under that number. We all don't want to drink Chateau Haut-Brion.

Dear RobertR, Thank you for your feedback. Our Miami Spice menu offers a variety of dishes, including vegan options. The rock shrimp two ways (served traditional style as well as with a Honey Aioli) is only available on the Spice menu. I'm surprised to see you did not enjoy the wine list, we have glasses starting at $13 and go to bottles for $1500. Please come back and try us again, I would be happy to assist in your next experience. All the Best, Robert Micheli - General Manger

Super impressed but super hidden! You walk they the hotel but pass like 3 other restaurants along the way. Super trendy, but the food was mouth-watering delicious! The salmon belly with truffle literally melted in your mouth. The way gi beef, octopus, chicken and trout all superb. The asparagus was good. My husband liked the zucchini which was the only thing I didn’t care for. Can’t wait to come back here next time visiting Miami! Highly recommend.

Place itself is gorgeous. Service is great but food is not the best . For the price that we paid...Fried rice with beef was over cooked with literally 4 tiny cubes of beef . My daughter didn’t like her salmon roll and baked crab rolls had wayy too much mayo . Everyone’s stomachs were hurting all night . Probably going to choose another Japanese place next time

Dear Pizzagirl, I do apologize you did not enjoy your experience. The beef you had in the fried rice was A5 and unfortunately constitutes the price. We do have other options of fried rice should you like to come back and try something different. Please feel free to contact me directly should you like to experience Katsuya South Beach again. All the Best, Robert Micheli - General Manager - Robert.Micheli@sbe

We have been coming to katsuya since the restaurant opened, but like most restaurants in Miami,they now with tax and tip mark the wine up by 500%
This is just to much of a mark up.

Dear Andy, thank you for being a repeat guest and hope to have you back. If you would like to contact me directly I would be happy to review your check as the markup mentioned seems high. Yes, listed on all pages of the menu we add an 18% service fee on all check, typical in Miami Beach Hotels. Again, I do hope to have you back at Katsuya South Beach, should you need any assistance with a reservation please contact me directly. Best, Robert Micheli - General Manger - Robert.Micheli@sbe

The meal was over priced not what was suggested on open table. More like over 100 dollars per person without drinks or desserts.

The server was constantly trying to up sell to the point of being annoying. We all eat around the world at very nice places. This was just ok

El lugar es muy ruidoso, en general el servicio es muy correcto, todos muy atento a todo y a estar comodo, la comida no lleno mis expectativas, el arroz frio, apelmazado, los niguiris fueron correctos. Exceso de queso crema en sus preparaciones hace que el sabor se pierda completamente.
