Very good food. Tables are a bit to close together. Overall solid spot.
We felt rushed
Very nice restaurant, did feel like the passion has diminished a little. Could be time for a refresh.
Best Japanese experience outside of Japan! Delicious fish and meat
Wish I saw other reviews before I made the reservation. Service was bad. Food was good but not great! Will definitely not come back.
Food comes out “when it’s ready”. Our hot appetizer came out luke warm and our sashimi didn’t make it out at all. Sushi was good but not great. My martini however that was in a 3/4 filled small glass was $19. That’s insane.
Food was sub par. Small portions and very pricey. Not impressed at all. Would not go back
Service was poor. Food was covered in sauce that masked the actual meat/fish. Go to Nobu....
Never disappointed at this place- I frequent often. Brussel Sprouts a must!
We loooooooooove eating here. It's always terrific
The rolls were delicious but too big
Fish was fresh, sauces seemed old/had been sitting/coagulated
“Wagyu” had old meat foul taste and was tough
Shrimp had cheap import taste and texture- expected taste from cheap Chinese takeout, not Katsuya
Sushi was good
Service was good
Overall very disappointing not what expected after reading reviews
No excuse for the poor food quality- chef had to know
Would not go back
Love the hotel where Katsuya is located. The restaurant itself looks great and was well decorated. The waitress seemed to be very nice. But both her and every server we encountered whispered. Not sure why that’s a thing.
Meet ordered drinks and then the tasting menu. Getting another drink was a pain all night. The struggle is real. Waived a buzzer down and got drinks ordered one by one because they kept running off.
The first courses were very good. There was a grilled platter that had some amazing beef and sea bass. The sushi course was not very good. Would tell you what was in it but I could not hear the whisper. Then the waitress said desert was next unless we wanted more of what we just had. Dessert was nice.
So $450 for three people is not bad for Miami Beach. But o could have an amazing omakase at Nobu for that. No clue why this place is rated so high. Maybe an off night?
It’s really sad that Food is really good there but the service is very bad. I wouldn’t go back there. They gotta change the hostess and the manager for sure
$11 for a SINGLE piece of yellowtail - seriously? If it were blue-fin we could understand or maybe two pieces of yellowtail. With mandatory egregious tip and tax - $30 for appetizers is similarly over-priced and excessive. The steak with mushrooms was as though someone decimated a steak into 8 tiny pieces that were dried out and over-done, or used left-over pieces. The mushrooms were drenched in oil. The miso-cod was tiny and came with NOTHING. Our glass of over-priced rose had lipstick on it and eventually we were able to persuade staff to please get us a new one. Then they brought the check with higher prices for 2 drinks than on the menu and acknowledged they were aware of this and others had similar issues and ‘brought it to the manager to correct it.’
Not the greatest quality sashimi, black cod was bland, sushi was good. Miso soup was barely warm. Room looks like it needs updating.
Awful service but miso cod is amazing!
This was our second time at Katsuya. The service is great, the food is amazing, and the environment is visually very appealing. It is a noisy atmosphere and conversation requires a bit of a yell for all to be heard, so probably not great for a business dinner where work is to be done. But that isn’t what this place is for! A very enjoyable experience every time.
Fantastic attention to detail ! The staff were excellent and super accommodating , and the food was incredible!
Very hip and cool without being over the top. Food is excellent.
We came with our 4 month old baby for an early dinner and our waitress was incredible. She was attentive and held some of our dishes with the kitchen as we had to tend to our baby and couldn't eat right away. The sushi rolls were fantastic especislly the dynamite one which wasn't on the menu which the waitress recommended. Cocktails were good too.
The food was wonderful; however, the service was highly disappointing. Especially for the amount of money you pay to dine at such a lovely restaurant. I would’ve expected our waitress to at least come around to our table once or twice to ask if we needed another drink, how our food was tasting, did we need anything else, etc. Unfortunately, this restaurant adds an 18% gratuity to the check automatically - I sincerely wish I could have given this money to the host/hostess as they paid more attention to us than our server. In addition, we
Politely explained our situation to the GM and after saying he would make sure to make it up to us, he didn’t follow through with buying us a round. For the amount of money you pay and the experience you expect, I wouldn’t go back. If you can’t handle being in the customer service industry, you shouldn’t be working at a highly recommended restaurant. It ruined our experience and I truly believe if we had a properly trained server, we would have had a different experience.
Overall the food was wonderful and we had a great waiter. My only complaint is that the table was very tight and in between two couples that had wine coolers so it was hard for us to move in and out.
Enjoyed every item we had here! The only complaint we had was the long delay in getting our dessert.
Fabulous food, atmosphere, and service ! We will definitely be coming back.
Amazing fresh sushi!
Delicious inventive appetizers. Loved the spicy edamame, crispy rice tuna, Hamachi sashimi and salmon with caviar.
Great food and very fresh fish. The sushi was amazing but the service was ok.
