Katsuya is a good restaurant but rather pricey given the quality of the food. If you’re already in South Beach, it’s worth a visit. However, I am unlikely to return. Nothing special.

Katsuya is a trendy restaurant with excellent customer service. They have an eccentric Asian fusion menu, which is executed to perfection. We will be back!

I had been looking forward to eating at Katsuya and I have to say that I was disappointed. The food was amazing - interesting and so tasty. My sincere compliments to the kitchen. However, our service was terrible. Several times I had to look for our waiter and twice, the host had to help us. Miami has a mandatory service charge of 18% for waitstaff and this is one meal I wished I didn’t have to pay it.

This restaurant is highly overrated. Sushi at best average, grilled dishes gloppy with unremarkable bbq sauce, and wait staff distracted. Way past it’s prime

Delicious food Parking $25. Small portions. They sat two infant children and two adults at a table next to us when there were many empty tables. Try to squeeze too many people in the room

The food and cocktails here are definitely delicious! Service is generally good but they do rush you a bit. The only major dissappintment is that most of the tables (mostly 2-tops) are situated mere inches from each other so that even if you are on a date with one other person, it’s really like you’re sitting at a table with 5 strangers. Zero points for intimacy/conversation.

Amazing food, vibe, and service, especially for a big group of younger and more sociable people looking for something in the scene. Despite being extremely pricey and the typical Miami issue of not being able to do individual checks for groups (literally the worst, but only bad thing I can say), the quality and environment is worth it.

Love Katsuya and love the food. But !!! The music is outrageously bad and really ruined the mood of a nice date night. I mean come on- why are we listening to Savage Garden, Oasis, and Sugar Ray, at a sexy dimly-lit restaurant where you will spend $400 on dinner? Apparently it’s a regular thing with the 90s music at Katsuya. I couldn’t wait to leave and find a better vibe.

The food was fresh, for the price it was expensive. In terms of our seat, it was cramped. I wouldn’t give this a five star restaurant. It was a good time but nothing over the top.
