A truly fabulous restaurant. The food was amazing - fresh, beautiful presentation and very tasty. Extensive food and wine list. Service was excellent. There was a keyboardist and bass player during dinner which added to the enchanting evening.

We were a party of four. Two of us ate the wine paired menu. Two of us chose from the appetizer/entree menu. We all gave five stars for the lobster bisque and bread. Our dishes were appetizing and appealingly plated. The wines went well with each course. We were too full to eat dessert until breakfast the next day. This too, was delicious.

Both the recorded and the live music were jazz genre and added a lovely layer to the ambiance.

Perfect evening for our anniversary. We decided to do the four course wine pairing and it was outstanding. The best roast duck I’ve ever had. Go eat here period.

I love restaurants that are a dining experience and Katya Vineyards fits the bill! The ambiance, service, food, wine and music are all superb! The hosts couldn't have been more receptive and the server was extremely personable and attentive. I always like when the chef comes out to greet his guests and this chef did not disappoint. I can't stop thinking about the extraordinary meal we had and I am so looking forward to out next dining experience at Katya Vineyards!

Always our favorite in Ocala. We had our Christmas party and everything was perfect.
Great service and wine along with special starters and entrees.
lobster rolls, homemade pasta including gnocchi with wagu beef, etc
Flat breads with beef and veg. Sea bass ........
Normally we do not have dessert but tried the caramel cheesecake and just crazy good.
Give it a try

Every trip to Katya is a Christmas present! We always feel like family that has come home for dinner. The food is exquisite-every detail is passionately explored. An end of the night sip with Chef sends the whole night over the top! Will never miss an opportunity to dine at Katya.

Intimate place with great ambiance. Impeccable service. Katherine made our dining experience. She set the bar high for attentativeness. Bravo to Chef for unique and most favorable food and presentation. The musical artist added to a pleasant atmosphere. Katya Vineyards award winning wine was superb. The desserts were the crowning touch. Everyone made you feel so welcome. I enjoyed the fact that Chef came out to see how our meals were and was there to thank everyone and say goodbye when we left. The prices are well in line for the quality of food and the time it took to carefully prepare each item. Such a memorable evening and we will return. Thank you and Bravo!

Great place for a interesting dining experience. Unfortunately, the service was hit or miss. When the wife of the chef waited on the table, service was excellent, when the other, older, female server waited on us, it wasn't as good. (Sorry, I don't remember their names). We shared the appetizer, which was pear and fig pureed in a purse. It was outstanding. We each had the lobster bisque and also outstanding with a huge piece of lobster claw in it. For our entree's my wife had the scallops which she raved about. I opted for the waygu 8oz filet. I was disappointed. It wasn't as good as I expected. It seemed a little too chewy for my tastes. For dessert we shared the empanada's with vanilla ice cream. Excellent. We certainly will give it another try but I ll opt for something other than the steak.

Lovely setting, service for royalty, music just a bit loud for me but not loud enough to ask to turn it down. Decorations were nicely festive. Really enjoyed the live music. Chef came out and allowed for feedback which was wonderful. He informed us the menu changes monthly. I received two wines I wasn’t enjoying with the tasting menu, and they brought out others! You must get the eggplant signature dish even if you don’t like eggplant. Yum! All in all, a lovely evening I hope to repeat on a regular basis. Not to be missed if you enjoy fine dining!

Love this little hidden gem in Ocala Fl. Family owned and operated, they are extremely helpful in picking one of high-quality beef selections they offer. They offer a binder with detailed wine selections from all over the World. One of the best things we get every time is the Burrata for an appetizer!!

The most amazing place in Ocala. Amazing food - amazing service!! Family run business with exquisite ingredients and a dynamic chef. We had the charcuterie plate (lots of tastes including mama’s red wine jelly), caviar (wish we had more), wagyu beef (wow), stuffed lobster tail (presentation was beautiful), Chilean Sea bass (great flavor profile), filet (perfect), and gnocchi (yummy). Wine selection was mind blowing - even by the glass selections were incredible.

Appetizers were terrific, crab cakes. Little choice of soup or salad. Just one of each and soup was a veggie soup. My salad contained lots of fruit, not something I am fond of. I had the diver scallops with lobster ravioli and touch of caviar. My meal was luke warm and the scallops, while cooked properly, had something gritty on them. I could not detect any lobster in the ravioli. Very, very expensive.... Over priced.
