                      The food was delicious and the staff was very helpful and polite. We will be back in the near future. I have already recommended Katz 21 to a family member.

                      We enjoyed a great evening with family. We were quickly seated. The place was clean, cozy, very inviting. W enjoyed a bottle of wine the staff recommended. The appetizers were amazing; cats meow and escargot.

                      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.

                      The food was great, tho my medium Prime Rib was maybe just a tad over cooked. Next time I'll order medium rare. Overall, was a great meal!

                      FOOD GREAT! RESTRURANT LITTLE COLD BUT ALL GOOD. STEAK WAS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD AND COOK JUST RIGHT (HARD TO DO WITH WELL DONE BUT THEY NAILED IT). ONLY ISSUE WAS MASHED POTATOES LITTLE COLD BUT THEY REPLACED THEM RIGHT AWAY WITH MUCH HOTTER ONES. WORTH GOING THERE.

                      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.

                      The waiter was very knowledgeable and was honest about the wait times and was very courteous . Brought us a fresh pot of coffee and served out everything in moderate timing. The only thing was there was a loud table with a screaming child but they left.

                      Some of the food was so-so expecially the creamed spinach, instant mashed potatoes, "o.K." Everythig was perfectly seasoned, presentation outstanding and all in all nicely done. we look forward to our return soon!

                      The main course was great, but the appetizer was a little on the sour side and the lobster bisque wasn't as creamy as I would have liked. The steaks were out of this world and service was outstanding.

                      Food was very good as usual. Waiter forgot a few things and had to be reminded, but it was also very busy and they may have been short-staffed.

                      If there is any chance for this restaurant to impress anyone, the leadership needs to adopt the philosophy, "That's not good enough." We won't be returning.

                      Our experience was amazing. The food was superb along with the service. From the time we entered till the time we left everyone treated us like family. My wife had the pasta and I had the pork loin. Both meals were outstanding. Our server and assistant server were delightful and attentive. The General Manager introduced himself and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend dining here. We will be back!

                      Always enjoy coming to Katz! My wife and I have been coming for over 15 years, when the were at the downtown location. I have always had excellent service, excellent food, and a wonderful atmosphere. I never hesitate to recommend Katz 21 to friends and family who are looking for something more than the "normal". We have been, and will continue to be happy patrons.

                      The food was outstanding , the restaurant is beautiful, and the service was wonderful. Our only down part of the evening was a large group was dining at the same time as we were ,and they had a small child that kept screaming and crying disturbing us during our meal. They did eventually remove the child from the dining room after several attempts to calm it down. Overall we had a nice evening.

                      We had a reservation for 4 so we were seated immediately. The server started off strong but then left us for most of the night. The food turn around was much longer than anticipated. We got there at 6:30 and didn’t leave until 9:00. For our first time, we were expecting a much better experience.

                      Danny was our waiter. He did a great job in explaining food choices. We want to try some Japanese whiskey. He took the initiative to go talk with the bartender and brought back notes about three different types. Outstanding service! Food was EXCELLENT!!!
