Katsuya- South Beach Ratings and Reviews
The food was uneventful, overpriced, and took long to get to the table. The sitting is horrible, I felt like a sardine. Nothing in the restaurant showed elegance of fine dining. You can be shore that ok will never returned to this restaurant and I will express my bad experiences for the next year.
It was my best friends birthday. Neither one of us had been here before and we were pleasantly surprised. The watermelon ceviche with assorted shellfish (scallops, octopus, tuna, cucumber), striped sea bass, rock shrimp tempura roll, Katsuya roll, donuts (passion fruit coulis), and salmon and tuna sashimi was really balanced and flavorful. The jasmine margarita and the geisha were great cocktails also. Would recommend friends and family to go dine out here in the SLS South Beach
Mehhhh. All hype no substance. Fish is quite good but at the price they charge it should be perfect which it is not. Service is terrible - not the fault of the staff - just terrible management. If the place was was 1/2 the price it would be a five star but at those prices - quality is not what u pay for - you pay for the cool name.
The restaurant is loud and the tables are very close together, our elbows were practically touching the guests next to us. This is not the place for a private conversation or a first date. However, the food was fantastic. We really enjoyed everything. The food comes out as it is ready so if you are hoping for a logistical meal, order accordingly. We had an appetizer come out after our entrees. It was not a problem but note worthy for a next visit.
Definitely won't go back. First ac wasn't working, second waiter was kind of rude- I get it gratuity is included so you don't care but still, third our sashimi came out warm which was probably the best thing we had. For the prices we paid I was expecting everything to be delicious and great but it wasn't. Might as well gone to Nobu for a more expensive meal but delicious food.
Sushi was good but service was poor
I ordered the chef sushi comb and they just brought it to table without anyone talking about what they are. Sake was plopped down on the table without the waiter pouring it. Really disappointing for a high end sushi restsurant. Miso cod was good though
The ambience was brighter than I would have liked. It felt almost like a cafeteria with the white Formica tables. The food was not good. The crispy tuna had an ice cold tuna mixture that was molded into a teardrop shape... literally ice cold and the rice wasn't crispy it was more chewy. The wagyu steak was really tasty but we ordered it as the chef recommended as medium rate- but only a few center pieces were that temp and there rest was medium-well. The mushroom risotto honestly was awful- it was literally sweet and it had corn and carrots mixed in. Yuck! We only ate a few bites each. The whitefish with crispy onions was really good and so were the drinks. I would never go back here though because the food was just not good. It was a total waste of money. Zuma is 100 times better.
In southbeach, the later, the better. We got there quite early for the usual dinnertime, 8pm. The food is always good here and the staff, always friendly and helpful. I would say just about anything goes here, with casual diners earlier in the evening with a change to slightly better dressed groups. Ive come later in the past... 9pm-ish and the place was packed. So its usually depending on what season. I'm not a fan of banquette seating, but we got there early enough to score a 4 top for just the 2 of us as the host was very accommodating. There is a nice variety of light fare , and the fish was very fresh. SLS has a bar right outside for drinks afterwards. But I do recommend Katsuya's specialty cocktails.
We have been Nobu fans for many years and this was our first time at Katsuya. The menu of both restaurants shares some dishes in common like the rock shrimp, black cod and yellowtail with Jalapeno, which are among our favorites. Katsuya exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent, Oreste's recommendations for a champagne toast and for a bottle of wine with dinner were exceptional and the food had its own unique character. We enjoyed every minute of the experience and will definitely go back to try other menu items that we didn't have a chance to sample on our first visit.
Due to the fact the wait staff gets an automatic 18% tip, I feel that the waitstaff hardly performs at the level they should.
The waitress visited us only three times and every time I had to stop her as she turned away to walk back towards the kitchen to continue my order. It was like she didn't want to be bothered.
We had our appetizer before we even had our cocktails. I feel for the level of restaurant that Katsuya is, we should have had a five-star dining experience.
We ordered the Katsuya roll and when it arrived it was falling apart, the tuna had strings of tendon inside of it which caused it to be stuck together. I have never had such fun quality tuna sushi restaurant.
I will revisit Studio City any time but NEVER Miami!
The food was very good although not amazing which is what you would expect at these prices. I have had as good and better Japanese cuisine at other places that are 1/3 of the price. I suppose what you are paying for is the cool factor (Starck design, etc.) but it seemed dated and in need of a refresh. Pros: Food was good and the bar outside is lovely; Cons: way overpriced, spotty service, dated decor.
