The food was good, but a little pricey for what you get. Service was friendly and helpful but nothing very quick.

Restaurant inside was empty and tables outside by pool had 0 vibe. Food wasn’t anything special. Waitress very nice but service was slow probably because she had to travel so far to get to tables.

We had a very nice dinner. The service was great and the food was amazing. We especially liked the spicy tuna crips, rock shrimp app, cod and shrimp fried rice. We had the added bonus of sitting next to the pool. Highly recommend.

Katsuya is always superb in every respect. Both Chef Hiro and Chef Edgar bring the best Miami has to offer every single time. The service is as excellent as the food.

It is literally the same for every visit - Superb!!! The consistently high level of service, personal attention, and food quality is rare on the Beach. Katsuya never fails to deliver! Kudos, to Miodrag, Jane, Chef Hiro, Nutchee, and all of our Katsuya friends. We'll see you soon, I promise!

I’ve been eating at Katsuya in LA for over 20 years. I think I’ve been eating at the SBE franchisees for almost 15 years. The ambience in this location was absolutely vanilla, the place was nearly empty, and the food stale. Very disappointing, will never return.

Two words: absolutely delicious. The sushi here is extremely fresh and very tasty and is paired with a great soy sauce. I’m a big sushi guy and generally have a few local spots in NJ that do a good job, but this place blows them out of the water when it comes to taste. The only sushi I’ve had that was comparable was Nobu in San Diego but I think this one has them beat.

I had the rainbow roll, salmon roll, and tuna roll and couldn’t recommend them more. Service was a bit slow (but that seems to be the norm at every restaurant in South Beach) and they did originally screw up my order and bring out only 2 rainbow rolls when my order was for 1 rainbow, 1 salmon, and 1 tuna but they promptly brought out the correct rolls and let me keep the extra rainbow roll for no charge, so it worked out in my favor.

All in all I could not recommend this restaurant more. Great atmosphere and even better food. The only downside is it is very expensive and came to about $300 on the nose for 2 people including 2 drinks each, but don’t let that hold you back if you can afford it as it’s well worth the price.

Katsuya is hands down the best sushi on the beach. Chef Hiro and the entire staff make this one a regular stop for us. There is no better!

Extremely pleasant experience and very good spot for date nights. The only issue (very minor) is they don’t validate parking and valet at the hotel is $25.

I had a great date here. The California roll is VERY good, not like your imitation krab. They came and checked on our table often, the manager in his suit came by and helped us.

Food was average, nothing more. "Signature" dish crispy rice was soggy and felt pre-made. Generally not terrible, but certainly not worth the price.

After eating at Katsuya many times, I simply run out of ways to explain how amazing the place is. Chef Hiro creates dishes that mesmorize the senses. Some of the most friendly people on the planet just adds to the experience. Don't miss this!

Food, service and atmosphere are good. But we had outdoor seating and I guess it’s legal in Miami so people next to us were smoking and it was horrible. I can’t connect nice dining and the smoke around you.
