    Everything was fantastic with the exception of the overwhelming thumping bass from the DJ next door. It kills the ambiance of enjoying a nice dinner celebration. Suggestion like in larger cities …. If a bar /club is connected turn up the sound after the dinner crowd has left the dining area. But when the dining area is full it should be a focus to provide an enjoyable evening where people can dine and talk and enjoy their meal without the club music beating you down.

    Hands down, one of the worst servers we have ever had. Server brought out the wrong bottle of wine and was oblivious to the mistake Server brought the wrong meal to my son and I.....we both ordered ribeye steaks and were served prime rib dinners. Again the server was oblivious to the mistake. Looking at the ticket, later, it was ordered correctly. The entire meal was "order what we want, yet get whatever they happen to bring out". Even if the kitchen screwed up the order, the server should have caught the mistake instead of hoping that we did not notice.

    Fabulous food and service! My one complaint is that the bar in the next room has some super loud bass that comes into the dining room and it’s moderately distracting from the ambiance the restaurant side created.

    All and all. It’s “fine” dining. Seems to me that they cater to slow pace diners. 2 hours when underwhelmed. Annoying. But hey they suffer from island time. Wildord was our server. Was just great. Saved it from being a “dry” experience. The hostess was the only staff member that smiled.

    Katz is the best restaurant in Corpus. The food is amazing, the service is stellar, and the ambience is perfect. I travel to Houston and SA often for my company. Katz is just as good, if not better, than any of those big city restaurants.

    The atmosphere was great but you could hang meat in the dinning area. Wait staff was congenial , soup was served cold . One steak overcooked and mine over seasoned. Both were served cold. Mashed potatoes were good and carrots outstanding. I've been wanting to attend for a long time but I'm over that now.

    Awful. Have been long term supporters of this place but the standards and service have dropped to a point where you’d get better value going to Whataburger. Even when they make mistakes, like dropping all our tables’ food- they don’t care and do nothing to make amends- they let our kids sit for over an hour with no food and the manager never came by to express any concern that they’d dropped our food and blown us off and would still charge us $300. Go elsewhere.

    The atmosphere was great as was the service. The food was just eh….our appetizers were okay (I had escargot which was good but the bread was hard as a rock….my spouse had the filet mignon meatballs which were dry). For dinner, my spouse had the steak and cake. The crab cake was great, but the rest was just okay. I had the lamb which was tender but too overwhelming of lemon juice. For desert, I had the crème brûlée which was great, but my husband’s chocolate cake was bland. For the prices they charge, I would have expected better tasting food.

    My wife’s prime rib was very good, the salads were unbelievable good, the pineapple upside down cake was one of the best desserts I’ve ever tasted; however my boneless ribeye was substandard. It was a packer cut at best and was tremendously over seasoned. I would think a steakhouse should have an over the top ribeye.

    I have been eating at Katz’s 21 for over 40 years. It was “the place” to go on special occasions. I remember saving to eat at the old downtown restaurant. I have never been disappointed in service or food, it has always been 1st rate. Thank you for the wonderful prime rib my wife and I had on June 25th. It was our 46th anniversary.

    Seated on time, Waitress was attentative and chatty. We did not order the steaks as we are having some this weekend but did the pork and the pasta dish. Neither was outstanding, pork a little over-cooked, the shrimp a bit fishy.
