Without hesitation I can say this is the best restaurant in Ocala. The highest quality ingredients are used and the flavors and presentation are unparalleled. I will definitely return. There are so many dishes and wines yet to experience. This restaurant is a must-do experience for fine diners living in or visiting Ocala. Don't miss it! Be sure to make reservations well in advance. This is a small, intimate venue.
Wonderful food and good vibes - wish they had a wine cellar though!
hello, this was our first and last time, unorganized , and they let us know when we arrived that they were short staff. we arrived at 5:50 for 6 Pm time. it was 10-15 minutes before someone came and asked what wine we would like, and another 15-20 to receive the bottle of wine. then anther 10-15 min to take our order. the salad and soup came out ok and was good, however it took 45 minutes for our meal to arrive. My steak was over cooked, ordered medium rare filet mignon, During this time they were cooking at tables, I guess the steak special-Wagyu beef-around $140 for 5 ounce serving;, but the place was full of smoke, a lot of fat on the steak with an open skillet. Our clothes and hair smelled like we were at a greasy spoon grill vs a very expensive restaurant! The place was noisy , but ok until the two piece band started playing-way too loud. Seemed that the owner/lady was only one waiting tables and took 15-20 minutes to receive our bill, then she had to take it back to correct the total, just hate waiting to ck out It was after 9PM before we ever left the place. If you want a good steak, with good service cannot beat Mark's Prime.
Third time as a patron, and will keep coming back. All the food we ordered was delicious, as was the wine. Service impeccable. So glad Katya came to Ocala!
It was our first time to visit Katya's Vineyards and our experience far exceeded our expectations. It truly was outstsnding in every way. We've been looking for somewhere that reached the level of New York City, New Orleans or Boston. This is it. By far the BEST restaurant in Ocala.
Ahi tuna ap was perfect. But both our entrees were cold. Cold duck, cold risotto, cold ravioli and cold scallops. They said it was bc they have a kitchen the size of a food truck kitchen and I suggested they at least serve the food on warm or hot plates. The food was luke warm in the kitchen then placed on an ice cold plate. So by the time we had our first bite, everything was cold. Disappointing bc it was our anniversary dinner. If we go back, we will simply request hot plates. Or order only cold appetizers.
Girl’s night out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Great wine, cheese board and appetizers. Very friendly service and less expensive than I expected.
First time dining here and it was truly one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a very long time! We wanted to try as many choices as possible so 4 of us ordered 6 appetizers, all 3 desserts and 2 bottles of wine. Each dish was better than the last. Katya and Tony are 2 of the nicest, most sincere people we’ve ever met, and it shows in every aspect of their restaurant. On a scale of 1-5 I give them a 10+!!
We’re moving to Ocala in 6 months, so we’ll be back often, but if we weren’t, I would still make every effort to come back as often as I could.
Superlative presentations and delicious tasting food. Wonderful service. Kind and attentive. Loved the book of explanations of wines. Ambience superb. A very sophisticated menu in a very easy yet sophisticated space. This family works very hard to please all their customers. Job very well done. Everyone was clearly having a happy evening at every single table. Worth every penny.
Always impeccable service and quality meal when dining with Katya!
Absolutely everything from food to service was fantastic!
Always a favorite of ours - my only comment is that the extensive wine list is a bit overwhelming for me. I liked the old one better as it was easier for me to navigate thru the. Numerous choices.
Excellent and we will be back and certainly recommend to our friends.
Best restaurant I have visited in the area. Gourmet experience! Friendly staff and chef. excellent service.
Great dining experience with incredible food. Highly recommend—nice and relaxed!
We had such a wonderful experience. This is the best overall dining experience we have had since moving to Central Florida 3 years ago. The ambiance, service and food were top notch. I highly recommend the wine pairing menu. You can choose food only without the wine. Between the two of us, we had everything on the tasting menu. Every item was exceptional with special mention of the salmon and caviar appetizer and langoustine bisque. The cost of your meal will be higher than average, but this is not an average restaurant. If you have a special occasion or are in the mood for a true fine dining experience, you must try Katya Vineyards.
Excellent choice for a special occasion. We went for our 26th anniversary and it was really good. The caviar was wonderful and the entrees were sublime. Service was excellent.
Wonderful dining experience as always. Delicious food though quite pricey.
The whole experience made my wife’s birthday special
Always a nice dinner here. The wine list is extensive and fun to try new things. The owners bend over backwards to provide a great experience. Will be back soon.
A chef that respects the ingredients, served by knowledgeable and welcoming staff.
Truly enjoyed the wine suggestions.
Had a lovely, fun and satisfying evening. We were two couples each celebrating 45+ years of marriage. Every aspect of the Katya’s experience was superb, from wine recommendations to food selections, substitutions and recommendations (especially the bacon-wrapped scallops!! OMG!) to service and ambience. We’ll definitely be back for other special occasions.
As usual, everything was amazing. From the atmosphere to the hospitality to the wine and food. Katya Vineyards outdid itself again. Our daughter’s visit for Mother’s Day and we were treated like royalty. Thank you Catherine, Tony, Patricia and David.
Tuna tartare - the best I’ve ever had!
Totally enjoyable evening. Katherine was attentive but not intrusive, witty & very knowledgeable & accommodating. Food was outstanding. .
Walking in I was very impressed with the warm greeting received and overall appearance of the restaurant . The ambiance in the dining room was wonderful and small amount of tables made it very cozy and comfortable. The background music being played by the guitar player was very good. Began to get a bit noisy when he switched to keyboard.
Cannot say enough positive things about the service and food. The staff was very attentive at the table and the food was absolutely fantastic. I had the seared scallops w/ Black Ink Linguini - delicious, My wife and one of our friends had the Langostino‘s which they loved and friends wife had the duck. Everything served had excellent presentation and was delicious. Can’t wait to return
The atmosphere, the live music, the service, the wine and the food was absolutely amazing. Need I say more? Absolutely love this place.
We celebrated our anniversary at Katya Vineyard and it was an exceptional experience. This was the first time dining there and we can’t wait to go back. The ambience is charming and inviting. The menu is inventive and interesting. We shared the tuna sashimi appetizer and it was definitely the best tuna I have ever eaten. My husband had the prosciutto wrapped scallops and I had the grilled octopus. Both meals were delicious and the presentation was inspired. We were lucky enough to be there on a Thursday, as we able to enjoy live music, which added to our romantic evening. Our tablecloth was sprinkled with heart confetti and we were greeted by a sweet note acknowledging our anniversary. All in all it was a perfect evening. We will definitely be going back.
My husband I had an amazing anniversary celebration.
Superb presentation, delicious food, personal service.....our new "special" evening out venue!
Birthday excellent experience
The food was exquisite as was the service. It is so wonderful to have a restaurant of this quality in Ocala. We hope to return many time so we can try everything on the menu. Exceeded expectations.
Everything about Katya is wonderful... we live hours away and make it a point to visit often.
Definitely, the best place to eat in Ocala. The ambiance is amazing, owners always treat you like family. Chef second to none.
Probably the best food I've ever had.
Wanted a romantic dinner with my girlfriend and Katya did not disappoint.
We had 4 courses each and all were fantastic. They were delivered at perfect intervals and had a wine pairing with each. Service and atmosphere was exceptional. Price to be expected for the elegance of the food and ambiance. They even delivered a nice bouquet of flowers upon request and let us keep them. Will certainly visit again.
Without question this is one of the finest restaurants that my wife and I ever went to. We will definitely return and bring our friends.
Best service in Florida, and we are from Naples !
Caviar, wagyu beef, first growth wines, soothing live music.
Ocala/s best in every way.
If you have concerns about COVID health and safety measures, then this is not the place to go to at this time. None of the employees or staff wear masks. Otherwise, most of the food tasted good, and the restaurant atmosphere is nice.
The restaurant appearance is upscale and appealing. The menu has a lot of great and unusual choices on it. However, the evening we were there a duo was playing sax and guitar in the main dining area - very disturbing - too loud. We asked for it to be toned down but did not seem to change. Ask for back room if there is music when you go.
Service was very slow and spotty. We arrived at 6:15, waited a half hour for an appetizer, then another 45 - 50 minutes for the dinner choice. Based on noise level, service quality and cost of meal, we most likely will not dine there again.
