It's not worth it with miami spice, the service was excellent but the portions are small and the drinks are very expensive, with tip and taxes included. My husband and I spent $ 180, he only drank one beer and I two drinks! at an hour and a half we were home 😞 and muyyyy aburrida !!!

Katsuya is my #1 sushi restaurant when I am home in LA. Unfortunately the Miami location was disappointing in comparison. The rice tasted day old and stale and the overall quality was poor. Overall the quality of everything in the SLS hotel has seen better days. Skip Katsuya in Miami but definitely visit any of the original locations in Los Angeles.

My friends and I live locally and we went for Miami spice however they told us all of us had to order from the spice menu or none of us could order from the spice menu I never heard of such a thing in my life. Very disappointing. Also three out of four of us wanted the black cod and they told us they ran out of it. The ambiance and crowd was cool. The food we had was very good as well

Me and my bf went for our 5 year anniversary and chose to eat from the spice menu. The spicy tuna roll was good. For our meals we ordered the wagyu beef fried rice and the branzino filet oyster mushroom fried rice. The wagyu was almost raw and very chewy. The branzino was extremely salty and fishy. The server was nice and switched my meal to the chicken tatsu-age. It was okay, but very greasy. We enjoyed the desserts. Service was good but the food was not good and the prices are very high. I never leave bad reviews but I was very disappointed.

The food and service was so good that my sister-in-law and I came back the next evening for the omakase tasting menu! The drinks were even sensational. Anyone that says this isn’t the best Japanese in Miami or the entire southeast US is nuts. Here is what is crazy: the dessert was the best dessert I ever had ever! Also, our food arrived in five minutes and we were done in a little over an hour. I will be a regular here from now on.

The restaurant was inside of the SLS hotel South Beach. It was nice and intimate. We were socially distanced and all the servers had masks on. The food was great and the staff amazing, even when we sat poolside.

My son was excited to visit Katsuya. Upon arrival, it was not what we expected. Service was OK but not exceptional. Food was good. My entree was too salty though. Comparing this visit to other restaurants in Miami that we visited...subpar. That's too bad.

This used to be my favorite restaurant, not sure what happened but the food was absolutely awful. I didn’t cause a fuss, but the hamachi cut was awful, Cold uncooked spicy tuna crispy rice, Brussels sprouts unbroken. I was quite disappointed!

I love Katsuya in Los Angeles - this was in no way comparable. Multiple items forgotten and server was awful. Manager was awesome though and was walking around trying to make sure guests were being serviced.
