We absolutely love Katz 21. We typically go for special occasions. The staff are very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. The food is amazing; serving high-quality cuts of beef.

We went to Katz21 as part of the celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary. This was not just a meal, it was an event, carefully prepared to commemorate this very special event. From the creamy wedge salad with its ample amount of blue cheese dressing to the perfectly prepared steak, and even the super-fine black pepper, every part of the meal was well thought out and perfectly executed. The icing on the cake was the table side prepared Bananas Foster and flavorful coffee. It was a meal we’ll never forget. Our server, Mikey was fantastic!

Overall experience was a B+. The staff were excellent, the dining area was rather dim and we just happened to be there with an event going on in the ballroom area, so you could hear the music unfortunately.

Drinks were great overall.

The food was ok, wife loved her rack of lamb. I chose the bone in rib-eye, for the price I was expecting something a bit better to be honest. For $58 you’d expect a 35 day dry aged steak or something close. Steak was unevenly cooked and “sinewy”, but flavorful. Just over medium on the outer to medium rare in the center.

Dessert was a take on bananas Foster. A small round of angel cake with slices of bananas on top. A scoop of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream on either side. The waiter lit the rum inside its container before he poured it all over. Actually really good, just very little actual bananas. It actually ended up running towards the ice cream, melting it a bit as we waited for the flames to die out. The cake was also caramelized in the process.

Absolutely amazing food!
Let me begin by telling you we ranch in Black Angus, & have excellent beef, so we have very discerning taste in beef particularly. We don’t eat it just anywhere.
We started with a salad and soup.
I ordered a Caesar salad, and my husband had the lobster bisque . My salad was several pieces of romaine with a slice of Parmesan and a crisp crouton like cracker. The dressing was very nicely seasoned and didn’t overwhelm the salad. My husband really enjoyed the bisque, noting it had a full flavor snd was very nicely seasoned. Both were exceptional.
The bread is excellent! We had to lace ourselves so as not to get full on it.
My husband & I both had the 8 Oz filet cooked medium, and their mashed potatoes with the carrot side.
Everything was seasoned & cooked to perfection!
Our waiter was training another person . Both provided excellent service
We went early, around 6:30, so it was pretty quiet for the duration of our meal, however, as time went on the restaurant got progressively louder.
There was plenty of parking also.
It’s a must for any steak lover!

Very nice restaurant for a special occasion one of the best filet mignon I've had. Wifes salmon was just ok slightly over cooked. Our appetizer, calamari was missing some ingredients the roasted cashews and waiter brought back to the table after we notified him instead of taking dish back to chef to complete. But overall we had a nice dinner. A bit pricey though . We do eat fine dining when we get an opportunity and this was on the high end. The restaurant ambiance was amazing one of the nicest we've ever dined in. We would return indeed.

We went for our anniversary and had an amazing meal. Our server was very polite and on point. We never had to wait for anything long, every request was immediately cared for. The food was phenomenal. We will definitely go back. Prices are not cheap for the area, but you definitely get what you pay for. Food was cooked perfectly, portion sizes were great, and the quality was amazing. We will definitely go back. In corpus, this restaurant would compare with the Republic and Yardarm. I would say it is a very close call for first between here and Yardarm. Republic would fall after those two, their only plus being the view. Highly recommend.

Food was over cooked, however good flavor. Order medium filet but received well done..
Took 45 minutes to get soup and salad. Unacceptable
Took total of two hours to order and eat. Too long…maybe this is normal at this restaurant?
Person who attended us did a very good job, kitchen staff was disappointing.

For the price, the food was terrible. Our steak was a bit dry (we ordered 8 oz filet mignon, med rare). The presentation was horrible. Huge, bulky carrot on the side. Would it have hurt to julienne the carrot? We also ordered some crab rice and I wondered how it got on the menu. Disgusting. My chickens loved it though. When we left, our leftovers were packed for us (along with three other people’s). I called the restaurant to let them know I had received them by mistake and I was asked if I could return the food to the restaurant. Ugh, no! I didn’t eat it nor would I have eaten it if it was returned to me! My chickens, however, enjoyed the leftovers immensely.

My first visit since they moved from downtown was a bit of a let-down. They kept the decor, dark wood, plush. The prime rib had more fat than I like. I had a bit of a hard time fitting my power wheelchair through the tables. Please tell your hosts and hostesses not to walk away from a person in a wheelchair then look surprised when you turn around at the table and we're not there. I applaud the availability of fine single-malt scotch. Service was five-star. Overall very nice and very expensive.

Our first visit to celebrate wife's birthday here. Waited about 45 mins for medium steaks. The scallops were about quarter size. One of our plates was under cooked. So had to wait a little longer to eat. About one hour overall but the time it came back from kitchen, still under cooked. Manager apologized and had to take our dish to go. Expected a better experience with this being a "top" steakhouse. Hopefnext time will be better.
