Food is exceptional! Stakes done to perfection as we ordered. Service was very pleasant! It is quite expensive, but worth the money we paid. On average it will cost $85 per each adult with a stake, a side dish, one dessert split for two and a glass of wine.

We celebrated our anniversary at Katz. The Filet was great, the Ribeye was thin with lots of fat, something you would expect in a restaurant at half the price. We love the decor and service. The prices are high for the area. Overall a great experience, but will limit visits due to prices.

The 4 of us were celebrating a friend's birthday and Katz 21 really stepped up to the plate. First, the restaurant is gorgeous-great atmosphere for enjoying a good meal. It was not very crowed, so hard to say what the noise level would be on a fully-packed room. We were seated promptly, served water, bread and drink orders taken right away. We had drinks, then wine, a couple of appetizers, 4 different meals, coffee and dessert, all of which were terrific. We had 2 different steaks, a fish special and rack of lamb, all of which were cooked perfectly. The girls commented that there should have been 3 spears of asparagus, rather than 2-can't say I disagree. The only bump in the road was when we ordered coffee and dessert. Our waiter told us the one of the desserts would take 20 minutes to prepare-we had no problem with that. But he also decided not to bring our coffee until that dessert was ready-not a good move and we couldn't find him to ask him to bring the coffee. He said he didn't want the coffees to get cold while waiting for dessert, but isn't that what re-fills are for? Other than that hiccup, the service was great. We have been to many high-end steak houses and this is right up there with the best. We will definitely be back.

Had Katz 21 food at Singer Songwriter Showcase. First time at Katz 21. Disappointing experience. Asparagus was mushy, nasty, like it was canned.

We were recommended Katz 21 by some friends as a suitable restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We were not disappointed. Our server was very pleasant, we received a nice card from the Katz 21 team congratulating us on celebrating our anniversary, and of-course the dinner was delicious! We went with the special of the evening, coupled with some lovely wine. The restaurant is very nice, the servers were all very pleasant. Everything about the night was top class. It's one of our favorite memories of the weekend.

The food was suburb and the atmosphere was outstanding. This was our first time there at Katz celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary and I am glad my husband took me there. We really enjoyed our waiter Albert. He was very knowledgeable and recommended several items that we tried and I was glad we did. 100% recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I recently celebrated our second anniversary with a dinner at Katz. The great food, exemplary service and formal yet relaxed atmosphere made it so much more than a simple meal. It was a dining experience, and one that will be remembered and treasured for many years to come.
A tip of the hat to Andy. He was so much more than just a waiter. His service, knowledge, wit and humor were a big part of what made the night such a wonderful experience. We thank you.
Everyone should have an occasional "dining experience". Katz 21 Steak and Spirits is the place to have it.

After being sat we waited over 5 minutes before our waitress came to our table. She introduced the specials and said she’d give us time never offering beverages or appetizers. Finally came back asked if we were ready we ordered bar drinks appetizer and entrees all at once. Received drinks and appetizer in timely fashion. However, dirty dishes such as bread basket, plates, butter dish, app plates and appetizer plate sat till we received out dinner entrees. Which after finishing appetizer was another approximately 10 minutes. When our food came out with 2 steaks no steak knives were presented nor did the waitress ask us to cut into the steaks to make sure we were happy with our Medium ordered fillets we had to ask a secondary server minutes after we could get his attention. Dinner was good dessert was offered as we finished our meal. Creme brûlée was chosen brought out 5 minutes later not caramelized correctly when we could get her attention she apologized and we asked for the cheesecake it was promptly brought out. As we ate what I assumed to be a manager, because the lack of introduction, came to ask how everything was less than enthusiastically and said he was sorry about the creme brûlée as we said no problem thank you he walked away. We finished our desert and left.

The experience was very lovely but one thing I was somewhat disappointed in was that OpenTable asked me if there were any special requests and I marked that it was a special occasion and was my husband's birthday. There was zero acknowledgement of that. I wasn't expecting something for free or anything but at least a mention that they at least read the request would have been nice. We also didn't get a special table out of the way, we were right in the middle of the dining room. It wasn't packed so I just think that no one bothered to even read the request.

Apart from that, the experience was lovely. The server was great, even though he didn't check to make sure our wine was to our liking after he poured it and to check our steaks before leaving the table, but there weren't any issues. The Katz Meow was delicious and my husband's bone in ribeye was cooked perfectly so he was happy. Our potatoes and mushrooms were great side dishes. My NY Strip was good, but a little charred on the outside and somewhat over done on the ends especially after requesting it to me medium-rare, but it was still very tasty.

For the price, I expected slightly better delivery of the steak and service, but our server was still great regardless and very attentive. I've just been to other fancy steakhouses and know the protocol and we didn't receive that 100% here. I'd definitely go back for another special occasion though as the food was spectacular it just wasn't the perfect experience I was hoping for after dropping $220 on a meal.

The hostess led us past a blaring fire alarm that beeped incessantly for the entirety of our meal. They had a signed birthday card on the table which was a thoughtful touch. However, the service was bizarre. Our server didn’t greet us, introduce herself, ask for drink orders, or offer recommendations. Instead, she curtly said “Do you know what you want yet?” while looking and sounding put out. Luckily, the kitchen was quick and the meal itself was delicious. It’s unfortunate that the server was so rude, especially since we were celebrating a special occasion, because the food is really good. I paid a lot of money to be made to feel unwelcome and uncomfortable so I won’t be going back again.

Katz, very classy place, took my father and he stated that Katz is by far the classiest restaurant in Corpus Christi with it's beautiful rich decor and detail to service, like smiling employees and attention to detail like employees stepping aside when you walk through an entry way, the crisp attire to all from hostesses to the servers that serve water. .so impressive! Thank you for keeping this jewel alive!!! Appreciate it!

We have been to Katz restaurant (not bar) several times over the years. For special occasions or celebrations.

My steak was good but not great (it was also butterfly like my wife asked for. ) it also was not the temperature I liked. To be fair I’m mostly sure I said rare. But maybe said mid rare. Either way it was the same as my wife who ordered mid well

The steak came with some mashed potatoes but we also ordered mashed potatoes. The waitress said they don’t always know what the garnish is going to be with a filet. She offered to swap it out.

The cheesecake desert was awful. Gummy and thick. Super gross.

It was supposed to be a nice meal to celebrate but when the bill came I just didn’t see the value quality compared to cost.

We sent an email early Tuesday and have had no response. So we decided to post the email here as the review. Our first part at Club 21 gets 5 stars from us, the following restaurant experience is why we rated the whole experience so low.
Dear Mr. Dies and Mr. Garza : Management,
Having been a former restaurant owner I always appreciated it when a customer with a problem contacted management before posting on social media. I am sending you this email to let you know about our experience in your restaurant Monday night.
My husband and I drove over from the Rockport area to enjoy an evening out at Katz. Our bar experience was great. Your bar staff were friendly and our cocktails were perfectly prepared. We also enjoyed the meatball appetizer. It was delicious. (5 STARS HERE) We were seated for dinner and were told about the prime rib special. My husband ordered the special for dinner. He was served a terrible cut of meat that was 80% fat. I said that was a bad or the end cut and that it looked terrible. Our waiter said that was a normal piece and the way it looked was also normal. He is not the complaining type and would not send his plate back. Considering your stature as a prime steak house and our hour drive to your restaurant we were very disappointed in our dining experience. It is sad that your kitchen staff would send out a cut of meat of that quality.
I hope you find this information helpful. You have a beautiful restaurant and we wish you success.
Sincerely,
Mr. & Mrs. Steven Jones

I ordered my ribeye medium and it came out almost well done it was tough and had no taste. For the price of the steak they should’ve had cooks that knew how to cook.
My wife had the prime rib she ordered it medium well and it came out rare.
The service was excellent

Excellent restaurant for that special moment. We celebrated our 35th Anniversary. We were presented with an Anniversary card signed by all of the staff. The waiter was very friendly, attentive and helpful. The food was fabulous! Katz Meow appetizer started it off with awesome flavor and presentation. We had Roasted Atlantic Salmon and Texas Redfish with Crab Meat. The lighting and ambience were perfect!
