    Katz is the best restaurant in Corpus. The food is amazing, the service is stellar, and the ambience is perfect. I travel to Houston and SA often for my company. Katz is just as good, if not better, than any of those big city restaurants.

    The atmosphere was great but you could hang meat in the dinning area. Wait staff was congenial , soup was served cold . One steak overcooked and mine over seasoned. Both were served cold. Mashed potatoes were good and carrots outstanding. I've been wanting to attend for a long time but I'm over that now.

    Awful. Have been long term supporters of this place but the standards and service have dropped to a point where you’d get better value going to Whataburger. Even when they make mistakes, like dropping all our tables’ food- they don’t care and do nothing to make amends- they let our kids sit for over an hour with no food and the manager never came by to express any concern that they’d dropped our food and blown us off and would still charge us $300. Go elsewhere.

    The atmosphere was great as was the service. The food was just eh….our appetizers were okay (I had escargot which was good but the bread was hard as a rock….my spouse had the filet mignon meatballs which were dry). For dinner, my spouse had the steak and cake. The crab cake was great, but the rest was just okay. I had the lamb which was tender but too overwhelming of lemon juice. For desert, I had the crème brûlée which was great, but my husband’s chocolate cake was bland. For the prices they charge, I would have expected better tasting food.

    My wife’s prime rib was very good, the salads were unbelievable good, the pineapple upside down cake was one of the best desserts I’ve ever tasted; however my boneless ribeye was substandard. It was a packer cut at best and was tremendously over seasoned. I would think a steakhouse should have an over the top ribeye.

    I have been eating at Katz’s 21 for over 40 years. It was “the place” to go on special occasions. I remember saving to eat at the old downtown restaurant. I have never been disappointed in service or food, it has always been 1st rate. Thank you for the wonderful prime rib my wife and I had on June 25th. It was our 46th anniversary.

    Seated on time, Waitress was attentative and chatty. We did not order the steaks as we are having some this weekend but did the pork and the pasta dish. Neither was outstanding, pork a little over-cooked, the shrimp a bit fishy.

    Service was amazing which made up for some small issues. Dirty Martinis were not very good (more olive juice than vodka) and prime rib was awful. Cooked way too long and looked to be end cut that was tough. Medallions and crab stuffed lobster tails were good. Again service made up for all of it! Would go there again because of that!

    This was our second time eating at Katz 21. We came back because our first experience was so good. Our second was not. The servers were inattentive throughout the night. My water glass sat empty for the majority of the time we were there. The server gave mixed up our entrees when they were delivered. The wellness of one of the steaks was more medium rare when medium well was ordered. The food tasted delicious but for a high end restaurant the service was unacceptable.

    Clarissa was an outstanding server, very attentive and courteous, as was our other server (whose name escapes me). We brought in an outside cake for a birthday celebration, and the staff cheerfully kept it fresh until the end of the meal and very kindly cut and served it for us. That touch was GREATLY appreciated. Service was a bit slow but not due to lack of attention. Noise level in the main dining room did not allow for easy conversation; however. Overall we were very pleased.

    Waiter was good, food was below par. We been there several times and it’s not consistent, low quality control. Not familiar with wine selection so that was pretty tough. And the food was cold when I came out kind of like they forgot but brought it out anyway. I don’t think that I will go back but considering it’s probably one of the only for a few steak houses we may try again just in case it was a bad night.

    I saw the reviews and thought I should give them a chance for myself, my wife cautioned me but I ignored it. The 4-5 star reviews are very inaccurate. We Went out for what was supposed to be a fun date night with my wife. We ended up wasting $150 and 2 hours on mediocre ahi tuna slices, mediocre salad, and cold food. It took them 30-45 minutes to bring each thing we ordered out and it almost seemed as if we were forgotten about. When we finally got our food around 9pm (reservation was at 7pm) my food was way over cooked (I ordered a medium slice of prime rib) and was cold when they replaced my food the mead was cooked fine but again somehow cold and dry. My wife’s cut of filet mignon was cooked decent but was also cold and was dry. We were confused as to how a piece of meat freshly cooked to medium was dry and we came to the conclusion that our food had sat under a heat lamp for quite some time. Save yourself some money.

    This is a great, fine dining steakhouse. It has a more classical ambience to it. They keep the dining room fairly dark, so it is very intimate. The noise level was great. I couldn't hear any other diners. I think this is a great place for couples looking for a more intimate experience. The food is excellent. From the tomato basil soup to the steaks we had, the food was superb and worth the cost. The wait staff treated us like family and were very attentive throughout the meal.

    Reservation was at 7:00 PM for 4 and we were on time and immediately seated with Will as our waiter. We obviously made the mistake of telling Will that we were in no hurry because we didn't get out of the restaurant until 10:00 PM. We ordered a cocktail which was very good. Then ordered a bottle of over priced wine that was also very good with our charcuterie board which was quite tasty. Here is where things started going down hill. The restaurant was very cold. Asked to turn up the temp a couple of times and it finally warmed up a bit. We ordered our main courses with shared salads. My wife and I shared a Wedge Salad that was drenched in dressing. It took awhile to get our salad. Our guest tried to get the mashed potatoes substituted for spinach and was promptly told that they had to be included on the plate and spinach could be ordered as a side. Obviously, the plates are already made up ahead of time and no one knows how to substitute. Over an hour passed and we were finally served our main course after ordering another bottle of over priced wine. My Ribeye Steak had a pad of butter on top of it and it never melted! My wife had scallops that were luke warm and the risotto or rice was cold. Will kept asking us if we wanted a 3rd bottle of wine. We finally complained that we had really expected more and had chosen Katz 21 because of the their reviews. He apologized but never offered any solution other than saying that he had to wait for the kitchen to plate up our main course, which is BS! Will never poured one single refill after filling our glasses the first time. Shouldn't an upscale restaurant pour your wine for you? We have talked about giving Katz 21 a second chance, but probably won't.
