We were in town to do some fishing and had a guys night out. We loved the ambiance and the service. The 4 stars for the food was because the drinks were a little weak and my buddy ordered the lamb chops medium rare and they came out over cooked not once but twice. He decided to go with the same thing I had, the 24 oz Cowboy Cut bone in Ribeye. It was great and cooked right. It was a little strange that they didn’t take my steak back and keep it warm while recooking the other order, but the steaks were great. We also loved the fact that they have an area were you can have a premium cigar and a after dinner drink. By the way, the manager did come out and expedite the reorder of the steak and our server was awesome. I do recommend.

Brett was a fabulous server with great suggestions and a great personality. Mr Jon was also very attentive and polite. The bartenders unfortunately were not very friendly when we approached the bar for help with the cigar humidor. The classical music in the main dinning room was pleasant, but some piano jazz would have been perfect. Brett suggested the fried lobster appetizer, and I must say we were surprised at how delicious it was. I had the Chef Chilean Seabass feature that Brett also recommended for my main course and I was blown away by the perfectly cooked risotto, and the lemon beurre blanc sauce was perfectly matched with fire roasted tomatoes, sliced pink grapefruit, kalamata olives, and onions atop the perfectly cooked seabass. I was almost in Heaven with all of the flavors, textures and delectable aroma! My husband had a perfectly seasoned 24 oz ribeye with asparagus and delicious mashed potatoes with an extra side of sinfully delicios truffle mac n' cheese. He paired it with a glass of 15 year Macallan and I indulged in a Rosemary Cranberry Moscow Mule. We ended our visit in the smoke room with a Davidoff cigarillo and enjoyed the perfect weather . Overall it was a fantastic evening/ date night and we will definitely be coming back.

Had a gift card so decided to try it out. The food was good but not worth the price. It is a nice place for a special occasion, date night, or celebration. The steaks were decent, a little to salty for my liking. The $12 side salads were nothing special at all. The “spicy” meatball appetizer was very good but there was nothing spicy about it. Drink prices were pretty good compared to the rest of the menu, and there was a very wide selection. The waiter was friendly and very good. Only issue I had was waiting an abnormally long time for a cocktail. Not sure if the was the waiter or the bartender.

Server did not offer evening specials nor suggest coffee etc. with dessert.
Food terrible!! Steaks overcooked and over-salted. Spinach over-salted as well. Crème brûlée was worse than instant pudding. Obviously not made with vanilla beans. Sugar to heavy and granular.

Did I say terrible? Just in case it was not evident. We will never return.

We had the best dinner at Katz 21 we’ve had in recent memory. Javier, our waiter, was gracious and very accommodating with our numerous questions about various dish options. We went with the shrimp linguine and prime steak. All were wonderful! Great job!

Our server was Ace, he was attentive and not intrusive. 4 of us shared 2 Tomahawk steaks and 1 of us had the filet mignon Oscar style, all were cooked to perfection. Our sides of mushrooms (excellent!), crab fried rice, asparagus and mashed potatoes were tasty. Two drawbacks to the evening, they do not serve decaffeinated coffee and they were completely out of all chocolate desserts.

My husband and I ate here while on vacation. I had the lobster bisque, which was OK, but needed salt badly. I couldn’t even eat it until I asked for salt. I had the scallops and mushroom risotto, which was fantastic. I got the foie gras as well, which was also very good. My husband had the prime rib and said it was pretty good. We finished with the bananas foster dessert, which honestly is one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. Overall a nice experience and great service from our server, Javier. Would recommend.

We started with foie gras and escargot and they were perfect. Soup and salads were to everyone's liking as well as our main courses of T-bone steak, rib eye and fillet mignon.
Danny was our server and new just what wines to suggest and the after dinner cordial was a nice treat with dessert.

I am new to Corpus and was looking for an upscale restaurant to celebrate New Years Eve with my husband and friends. I came across Katz 21 and thought would give it a try. The staff was very friendly. The décor of the restaurant restaurant reminded me of a strip club from the 70's - sheer curtains draped across the old school 12x12 partitioned ceiling tiles for one and hearing the beat from the nightclub from our table was annoying. One of our guests ordered a drink with a very standard liquor which the bar was out of then ordering escargot, they were out. It's New Years Eve and you're not fully stocked? I ordered Turf and Surf medium rare, it arrived medium well and the flavor was not impressive. The mashed potatoes and mac and cheese were good however.
After dinner, we all went to a family gathering for fireworks and feasted on street tacos - after spending $200 on a so-so dinner then thoroughly eating tacos not even an hour afterwards speaks volumes.
My hunt continues for an upscale restaurant in Corpus. So far, I have had no luck.
