Katsuya- South Beach Ratings and Reviews
Great server,Alicia made our dinner delicious and fun, She gave good suggestions and showed true interest in making sure we had a great time and enjoyed what we ordered.
This food is complex and interesting-full of savory tastes ,hints of heat .. that make you want more.... love this restaurant !
The sls hotel where this is located is absolutely beautiful. Highly reco to go early and get a drink there before dinner at the bar outside the restaurant (bar Centro). We did the tasting menu at Katsuya and it was awesome! Lots of selections from the chefs signature dishes which were delicious! Def plenty of food! Lotus flower drink was super tasty. However , the Service wasn't the greatest -- never got waters til after the first course came out, all of our utensils were removed and prepped for dessert when they realized they still had one more sushi course to serve us, waiter wasn't really around a ton, etc...
We went to Katsuya as one of our two nights out of 4 nights in Miami. We had a sitter and we were looking forward to sushi. We were greeted promptly but that is the ONLY positive comment I can leave about this restaurant. We ordered 3 appetizers , one of which was a salad and then 4 sushi rolls. Apps came (Brussels were more oily than they were crispy), crunchy rice w tuna was chewy and I wish I could comment on the sushi but it never arrived. We waited an HOUR. From the time they dropped the apps to an hour later the FOUR sushi rolls never arrived. We were over it so asked for the check.... of which they discounted an app or two and then we left. The two tables surrounding us that left were left with dishes and half eaten food on them that we had to stare at for over a half am hour. Awful.
After years of going to Katsuya and always enjoying it we had a horrendous meal last night. If a restaurant is going to take a 10:30 reservation ( which is all they had) than they should treat you the same way they would treat a 7:30 reservation but instead they rushed us out of there in 45 minutes they served us 5 different dishes that all stunk. The lobster which is always my favorite came out so tough it was inedible. Not sure if was because of the time or the holiday or they just went down hill but I won't be going back to find out.
Sadly, I wouldn't recommend it for anything...except maybe the fact that the staff was friendly.
We eat at lots of Japanese restaurants. This was the WORST. The vegetable tempura was very heavy on the outside and mushy on the inside (couldn't identify the veg....maybe they were pureed?!) The spicy tempura shrimp roll was bizarre: the gloppy, soggy shrimp 'balls' sat ON TOP of each piece instead of being 'part of', making them impossible to eat. The sushi, admittedly, was passable, but we've had better from our local Whole Foods.
The music is pondingly loud American techno! The room (in a art deco hotel built as a Ritz...now SLS) is pretty.
Fantastic sushi and excellent customer service is what you can expect at Katsuya. There are many options when it comes to sushi, including more expensive ones. However, when it comes to quality of food, friendly customer service, on time seating for reservations and a fun atmosphere - Katsuya wins - hands down!
We were celebrating our engagement weekend and the manager brought out champagne for the table - very classy and much appreciated!
Really overrated food for the price. In terms of sushi restaurants it was no where near the level it should be for the prices. And The creamy rock shrimp appetizer was an absolute joke, tasted like a rock and old oil. Very little sauce,
More like a drizzle rock shrimp...
I have been to this place before and I love the menu. Everything was good, the food tasted great and the service was also great. The only thing that disappointed me was the table we were given. Although it was early and many tables were available, we were given the worst table looking indide the kitchen and I think that was because I reserved thru Opentable but not directly.
Nice interior of the place. The food, however, was really quite ordinary, especially considering the reviews. The Mushrooms & the Tempura squash were the only truly good items. The Sushi, though pricey was no better than a "decent" Sushi place. Certainly not worth the $175+ the bill came out to. Likely will not return.
This is not a fancy place, but it is nice. And the SLS hotel is in a great location with a fun bar.
The service was great, food came out fast. It was all very good except for the king crab robata. I was expecting a plate of grilled king crab to share. The server said dishes were meant to share. It wasnt listed under appetizers, it was on menu with entrees. It was maybe two ounces of actual crab, which we had to take out of the shell. I just should have sent it back. This dish was $24 and disappointing. Everything else was delicious - we had gyoza, hamachi ponzu, miso glazed cod and a spicy tuna roll. I would go again, just dont order crab robata.
Had some excelente quality nigiri with very fresh fish in a dish called Katsuya Omakase. We were also surprised by the excelente quality of the Wagyu Ribeye. We also shared several appetizers all of which were incredibly taste. Great service food and overall experience.
The website description of "sleek and sultry" interior is somewhat over the top. And as far as we could tell, if there were "Hollywood A-listers", they had come off the list ions ago. Service was California-vibe friendly and knowledgeable. Sushi pieces (and I've spent a lot of time in Japan) were SMALL (fine if the establishment is serving top-notch/caught in Japanese waters/super fresh fish, which it was not) and the selection was limited. The sushi is just so-so. Slightly distracted by all the botox-enhanced middle-aged women in the crowd - way too many selfies. This is not a restaurant which is filled to the brim with really knowledgeable foodies but rather a crowd that is focused more on "I'm here, see me, see me."
I was there with my girlfriend, the restaurant was not full, The reception was very good, the wine that I want order they don't have and the second also! The sever was very friendly say sorry many times, it's simply bad organization from the management. We order 6 appetizer they was excellent and 2 main course 1 of them was completely salted the waiter change immediately. So in all place can happen something so I will go again to give a other chance.
The food was all really delicious, fresh, and creative. The brussel sprouts dish was outstanding and I highly recommend them. The grilled mushrooms were also flavorful and a highlight of the meal.
The service, however, was awful. There must have only been one waiter for the entire dining room. It became routine for our table and the surrounding parties to spend most of the meal trying to flag down the waiter. Frankly I've had better service at AppleBees. And the essentially mandatory 18% service charge added salt to the wound.
Maybe because of the holiday, but we felt rushed to order, eat and leave. Pleasant wait staff. Weak cocktails....not the best tasting lotus flower drink. Food was not as warm, lobster looked good but rubbery. Seating too crowded for relaxing dinner. But worth the NYE experience.
