The food was fantastic and the service was great. There was a pianist there on an electric keyboard that was a bit too loud, though, and made it hard to hear my partner across the table. Once they left it was quiet and nice.

From the moment we walked in and were seated at our table, the service was impeccable.
We were very happy with the Chardonnay that we chose. My husband had the duck breast with pappardele and I had the Spanish grilled octopus with risotto. Both meals were tasty and we were very impressed. All in all, it was a great experience and we will definitely be coming back to Katya Vineyards.

As usual everything was wonderful. The food was perfectly prepared and the wine choices paired very well with our dinners.
I was a little uncomfortable with the lack of masks on the servers.

Went for my birthday and they set up the table for a birthday celebration, it was lovely. Staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was amazing and the entire presentation was lovely. Try the white chocolate creme brûlée cheesecake for dessert... we will go back for sure.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. I mean, how many times can I state this. If you haven't visited Katya Vineyards ever, you are truly missing out on a wonderful restaurant. Chef Tony will come out and meet with you table side. His lovely wife Katherine will take the time to explain the menu and wine list and make recommendations. Patricia and David are the backbone. This is a family owned business and for what they have accomplished here in Ocala is just wonderful. A class restaurant with a class chef and class family making your dining experience one of a kind. Come for appys/wine or come and spend time and have dinner/wine. It's to die for!

Another outstanding menu put together by the amazing Chef Tony Deras, Katherine, Patricia and David! Awesome job folks. From the service, to the wine to the food, everything was 5 stars. If you have never dined here, its a must try in the Ocala area. Even the patrons are an awesome group of people. Easy place to make friends at. We have never had a bad time at Katya Vineyards.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Katya Vineyards. We had never been there before. We both agreed that it was one of the finest dining experiences that we've ever had, from start to finish.
The venue was elegantly decorated without seeming stuffy or fussy. The staff personalized the experience without "hovering". It was clear that they were taking pains to provide outstanding customer service, which they definitely achieved. The food and wine were exquisite, and of very high quality. We highly recommend Katya's Vineyards, and are looking forward to our next visit!

This is by far the best restaurant in the Ocala area. The level of energy they bring in service is truly exceptional. You can tell they love doing what they're doing by the attitude they bring to work. The menu has only gotten better with time. We normally order the food and wine pairing with a cheese board but this time we ordered the Japanese steaks and were not disappointed. Chef Tony cooked the steaks tableside which made for an extra bonus. They also own a vineyard and serve these products in the restaurant. So good...

Just another great visit. We try to get here at least once a month as sooo good
Starters, octupus and flat bread just great. Entrees were sea bass with new potatoes and steal and scallops. Chef Tony just does a great job of offering new tastes and with a impressive presentation. Wine and beer only with many options.. Two people, 4 glasses of wine, two starters, two entress 200 with tip. give it a try

We visit 2-3 times per month. Literally some of the best food we have had anywhere (and we travel ALOT), not just Ocala. Best new addition to the menu: 1.Softshell crab appetizer. 2.Eggplant & lump crab meat w/lobster sauce.

Chef Tony is incredible & the whole family run business make you feel at home.

And a great wine list

First time at the restaurant and it was fabulous. The service was exceptional and we enjoyed our meal from start to finish. Started with a wonderful cheese board with a bottle of wine. Wine list was well thought out and reasonably priced. The pace of dinner was perfect for us. The waitress immediately recognized we were there for the evening and fine dining experience and paced us accordingly. A real skill. Attentive but not overbearing.
The menu was delightful and the chef came out before and after dinner to ensure the meals were just right.

This restaurant, is owned & operated by a family that also has a wine vineyard. David, Patricia, Tony & Kathrin, treated us to a very special evening. Their menu is extraordinary. Their wine list the same... from maybe $35 to a few thousand dollars. (We had a fabulous $49 bottle) The entrees are worth the price, Great atmosphere... Very Soho, Bohemian & Beautiful.
