Hands down best thing on the menu is the beef wagyu with fois gras. (Get the full size order NOT the grill.) everything is always delicious. Bazaar has a bit better atmosphere but Katsuya is my go to every time we're in South Beach.

We split the Chef tasting menu between the two of us then ordered some additional sushi. What a great way to taste the many delights of this restaurant. Excellent rock shrimp appetizer and some of the freshest sushi ever. Great meal.

I've been to Katsuya restaurants many times in LA and always enjoyed the great food and attentive service. Unfortunately, my South Beach experience didn't live up to the LA standard.
After my partner and I sat and were eating, the tables on either side of us were filled with couples who somehow decided that the restaurant was the place for them to express their personal affections - for most of the meal.
In addition to being ignored for the rest of the meal by our waitress - once the amorous couples arrived, the evening just became uncomfortable.
It's great to see people in love (or maybe just lust) but I prefer not to share such intimate moments with strangers while trying to enjoy a not-inexpensive meal.
It would have been great for management to pay attention to such things, as it really was a spoiler for us.

Very disappointed I go often to Katsuya, made reservation at 9 didn't get the table till 940, no one cared to apologize even after I complained and asked why we didn't have the table or why they would accept our reservation at that time. Service was really bad and had to ask for things two or three times including just getting some water.
Hope it was a one time thing but for now will head to Nobilu or Zuma for when guests are in town .

I wanted to eat sushi on my 40th Birthday so we booked ahead at Katsuya. The place was almost full when we arrived but we didn't wait any time to get our table. The hostesses are friendly and the waiters offer great advice on the menu. We had the tuna sushi cakes and a soup to start our meal. We also tried the Katsuya Roll and the Spicy Tuna Roll, but the top plate we had was the Japanese Risotto. The mushrooms and truffled butter blended so well with the risotto that we enjoyed every part of it!

This restaurant really lived up to my expectations. I had a Tuna appetizer in a delicious spicy sauce followed by Lobster. Both dishes were prepared to perfection. The staff were excellent and the ambience was delightful.

I made the reservation under a special occasion and they suggested a special table where we can sit besides each other. Upon our arrival, they did not accommodate. The general manager did not make any attempts to accommodate and said "I am sorry". Disappointed!

Andres was our waiter and he was excellent, attentive and offered great suggestions and never missed a beat when it came to checking on us! Food was delicious as always (some of the best sushi ever!) and great cocktails!

En general bien , pero cuando pedimos el toro en sashimi, que tenía un costo de USD 24 , nos robaron ya que eran dos feats extremadamente chicas. Comparándolo con restaurantes del mismo nivel, la cantidad fue muy pobre y el precio muy alto.

Our first visit to KATSUYA and we had a FANTASTIC dining experience. I highly recommend the full Chef's Menu for a well rounded exposure to what this great restaurant can do.
Presentation was awesome. Service was VERY SPECIAL as each member of the waitstaff was VERY well educated about all items on the menu and able to discuss every item thoroughly. Very nice and extensive SAKE list and we enjoyed a beautiful bottle ..... again, the staff was VERY knowledgeable about all the Sake offerings as well. This evening was for my daughter's birthday and they were very willing to male a birthday dessert presentation which was VERY nice

We're from Miami, so it's only events like Miami Spice that entice us to venture to South Beach and deal with the traffic, parking, and the reputation for bad service at restaurants in that area. We had reservations for Wednesday at 7:30 and found a nearly empty restaurant but were greeted warmly by the staff. After we were seated the server brought us the regular menu and their Chef Katsuya Uechi's Tasting menu ($65 per person), but when we asked about their Miami Spice menu ($39 per person), the server said it was not available even though it was listed as available on their web site.
Anyway, we were already there and hungry and ordered off their regular menu. The Baked Crab Hand Rolls were a delicious appetizer that we all enjoyed. My wife and I chose the Omakase Sushi and Sashimi platters, which included a variety of very fresh fish, shrimp, roe and uni. It was very tasty, light and satisfying.
We spent more that we had originally intended but overall it was a nice experience for a South Beach restaurant. We may come back during next year's Miami Spice, but next time we'll call ahead to verify that they really do offer the Miami Spice menu.

Barb & I went for the Katsuya omasake meal - the first time Kaysuya was at the restaurant was over 2 years ago. The quality of the fish - sashimi and sushi was very good. Overpriced I thought - the $185 bottle of junmai diajinjo sake can be found on-line for $29 to $56.They do offer 50% off of all sakes on Sundays. The omasake meal was OK - short ribs are short ribs but they were nested in black squid ink ramen noodles - the noodles were actually better than the meat. We had to order extra sushi after the meal to get our fill. The uni from CA (I'm guessing Santa Barbara) was bad. We were kind of expecting Katsuya to come out to greet the omasake meal patrons - guess not. $25 cash only for parking @ the hotel.

I have never enjoyed sushi or brussel sprouts until I came here. The food was delicious and flavorful and our server was amazing. The dessert was also unbelievably delectable. I would go here again and again if I lived closer.
