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.

Made reservations and the restaurant was closed on the night of the reservation with no notice provided, even though I received an email the day before to confirm the reservation.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We are a small family business. Our Executive Chef and the Husband of Katya underwent surgery during this time. We were closed for two weeks, as stated on all social media platforms, website and messaging, to facilitate his recovery. Once again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

Excellent! Ocala has never had this type of creative and superior cuisine, not only is the food outstanding the presentation is truly what one would expect in a 5 star restaurant in a metropolitan area. Its a gem and we will spread the word.

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.

50th Wedding Anniversary

Dining was the experience I wished for my wife and I. We were very pleased

I highly recommend the ambiance, the service was very attentive and three of us had the Sea Bass and one had the Duck. All was outstanding and perhaps best Sea Bass preparation I ever had

The Shrimp ceviche and truffle appetizer were both unique and wonderful

Wish I could award more stars

Always exceptional in food and service. The house salad is a great choice as it has so many great ingredients but the soups are also yummy - so try both. The steak dinner was so filling, took half home for a great next day lunch. Hard to leave without having a scoop of homemade ice cream. Yes, I would definitely return real soon.

Absolutely the best dining experience within an hour of The Villages! We’ve been 3 times and while it’s expensive, the food is exquisite and well worth it. The restaurant is very small and family owned and run. Chef Tony is so very talented, and changes much of the menu weekly. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant. The rack of lamb, scallops over lobster ravioli, the arepas (which change frequently) - all were well prepared and so delicious. So fabulous for a special, intimate evening of fine dining.
