Katz 21 Steak and Spirits Ratings and Reviews
I took my girlfriend to Katz to celebrate Valentine's day and it was a great experience for us. The service was amazing and they were very knowledgeable when it came to their drinks. I understand that it's their job to know that kind of stuff but you can tell they take pride in what they do and that creates great customer service. When we got there the table had rose petals all over the surface and looked very romantic. The ambiance was soothing and professional. The food was delicious and the drinks were good also. My girlfriend and I had an amazing time. I would love to bring her here again. I highly recommend for those who want a fine dining experience.
The aged steaks and bone marrow app were great but the rest of our order was so so. The lobster bisque was bland and needed some more sherry. The truffle mac and cheese didn't even have the slightest taste of truffle and was topped with some sort of black mushroom, truffle shavings wannabe. The freebie bread and butter were delicious. My dad did find his favorite wines on their list and was impressed with the waiter's knowledge and level of service. We might comes back just for the steaks.
The appetizer, oysters Rockefeller, was excellent and the filet mignon steaks were very good but not excellent. The Chardonnay wine selection we made was not available so, we selected another wine but it was also not available. Our waitstaff changed multiple times during our meal so there was some repetition in the questions they asked us. Overall however, the evening was a very nice experience.
The food was good. When we walked in we felt that we were immediately judged. We paid with a gift card that was for $100 however we were told it was only in the amount of $57. This is not correct. I asked the person that gifted it to me and she confirmed it was $100. We are not sure what happened to the remaining money on the card as this was the only time it was used. We ended up having to use our credit card for the remainder of the balance.
We will not be going back to this establishment.
We have before regulars at Katz 21 and enjoyed it every time. This was our first time to have Cesar as our server and he was solid.
I've become a regular at the club side as I enjoy cigars. Herschel has been my regular bartender and is OUTSTANDING.
I am being picky I know but I would like to recommend a bigger cigar selection. But again I'm going to be an exception to the usual customer base.
Service was attentive, however servers were too pushy in their sales tactics. We were celebrating my friend's 80th birthday, which I had informed the restaurant of ahead of time. When dessert time came, the server placed a card on the table and said to my friend, "fill this out and I'll bring you your free dessert". My friend declined the marketing ploy, only to have the server whisk away the card and proceed to ignore us until I asked for the check. If a dessert tray had been presented to us we may have chosen to simply purchase an item. Seems like the restaurant could have sprung for a scoop of ice cream or something, even though we didn't want to be on the mailing list. Food was good, but not excellent. What's memorable to me is the less than gracious treatment for our special occasion.
We were greeted the moment we arrived and the valet was very cordial and inviting. We stepped inside and the hostess greeted us with a warm smile. She immediately seated us and our waiter came soon after. The service was fantastic, the meal was superb. We had a memorable evening and although a bit pricy well worth the price.
I took my fiance here for our anniversary dinner. We sat and waited for about 15 minutes before even seeing our waiter. While looking at the menu the wait staff indicated that almost all of the items are a la carte and do not come with a side. After ordering they delivered our food. Mine was correct but they gave my fiance the wrong meal. It took a little over 15 more minutes for them to bring out the correct food. Since I was being polite I waited until her food came out to eat. By the time her food was ready my meal was cold. I had the clam and muscle pasta and there was bits of broken shell throughout the entire plate. She got the surf and turf pasta, although the steak was good, the overall dish tasted of sour milk. The food was barely edible. Definitely not worth the price and we will definitely never return.
Our experience at Katz 21 was unpleasant we get there they offer us the prime rib come back 40 minutes later say there no more this is at 7 when people go out to eat they did this to all the tables instead of saying will give u another steak for the same price they didn't poor customer service that why I made the reservation there should've gone somewhere else like the other couple did I thought they would take care of u when u go to an upscale restaurant but they don't never go back
We loved, loved, loved it! I couldn't have chose a better restaurant for my friends birthday dinner. Knowledgeable staff, impeccable service, amazing food, and warm atmosphere.
I highly, highly recommend The Katz Meow for an appetizer. My friends steak was "on another level"and my scallops were cooked perfectly. Everything that we ordered was hot on arrival and visually pleasing.
The staff checks on you, fills your water, and clears the table regularly without being intrusive.
Well worth the price. We look forward to our next visit!
This place was super amazing. The wait staff was very friendly and informative. We came here for my friends birthday, and it definitely will be one he will never forget. The food and drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere was way nice. I enjoyed being able to get all dressed up and enjoy an amazing night out. Thanks for everything!!!
The food, as always, was delicious. Katz is the only 5 Star restaurant in Corpus Christi and we enjoy dining there frequently. Jamie and Richard are the best - friendly and open to all of our requests. Their recommendations are always excellent and greet us by name. The cocktails and wine list are impeccable. Keep up the good work Katz 21.
My wife and I were visiting CC for an event at the Art Museum of South Texas. Though staying at the Omni, we made the drive to Katz 21 based on recommendations on Open Table. We couldn't have been happier with the decision. The steak was first-rate, as were the sides. Our waiter, Rocky, provided professional and appropriately attentive service that added to the quality of the dining experience. Ambience is old-school steakhouse.
Forgot to bring our appetizer and salads came out first so had to send them back. When calamari showed up it was Luke warm. When salads came back they were wrong so had to send one back. Steak was very rare (ordered medium) but took it anyway due to the other issues. What's going on at Katz 21?
I ordered the pork chops and my fiance ordered the rib eye. BOTH my pork chops were burnt. I had to send them back. The thing that puzzles me is it was severely burnt so it should not have even been presented to me. It should have been recooked. The second set of chops were not done all the way. At that point i asked for a to go box. My fiances ribeye was good but i must say the twice baked potato was excellent. Very disappointed that the chef nor manager on duty came to apologize about my meal. It was my fiances birthday so she did receive a complimentary bananas foster. That was very thoughtful.
Coming from a large city where one dresses up for a nice meal, I was shocked at the attire. Shorts and flip flops are not appropriate for a steakhouse. There was a table of six next to us drinking beer, taking shots and singing out loud. Very disturbing.
Not sure I would go back for a special occasion as this. Id go back for just any day but no for celebration.
This is the single best meal I have eaten in at least the last year. Every taste and flavor were perfection. I started the meal with the Katz Meow appetizer and a Manhattan Up with Woodford Reserve. I followed with the Hong Kong Sea Bass that melted in my mouth. My server Richard provided excellent care to my every wish. I will definitely return during my next trip to Corpus Christi. Wow!
