Apparently this restaurant has been a Corpus classic downtown for a while. They have recently moved a little farther out to a classy stand alone building that really makes you feel special the minute you enter the door. Everything from the separate bar and restaurant area (so you dont get the noise overflow), the music on the stereo (mostly sinatra... More

We were looking for a nicer restaurant during our visit to Corpus Christi and found this restaurant through Open Table, as they were one of two restaurants taking reservations on the Saturday night of our visit. Complimentary Valet parking is available, as well as self-parking; we usually go for the valet. We arrived about 15 minutes prior to our reservation... More

We experience service for the hostess and waitress. The waitress was as sharp a pencil. Calamari was excellent appetizer then pork chops and broccoli to follow. My wife enjoyed the chicken and salad. It was a superb meal.

Although the service was desirable on the day of visit this time, overall food is great. One of the best steak restaurants in Corpus Christi. Cocktail varies from mediocre to very good. I enjoyed my Prime Rib with one side on Prime rib special on Mondays. A great place for a business dining, a family gathering, with friends. A wide... More

The prime rib is really tasty. I highly recommend it. The ambience is superb. For a night out, this restaurant is top rate. The service was excellent and so was the talent.

My spouse treated me to dinner on my birthday at Katz. This is the third time we have eaten at their "new" location. I doubt we will go back. The hostesses were busy chatting with each other and not really rude but hardly warm and welcoming. We were seated at a table pushed against a wall of empty wine bottles.... More

My spouse recently hosted a 40th birthday party in my honor in one of their private dining rooms. The decadent food coupled with the ambiance and outstanding service simply defies description! Our group of 30 were treated like royalty and my husband and I were catered to with service fit for a king & queen! Special thanks to GM Davit... More

Yes, reviewers may say the price is too much but you definitely will get what you pay for. Food is cooked perfectly every time. Service is spot on and they make sure to time your meal just right so you don't get your meal with your salad or appetizers. My husband and I eat here when we are splurging or... More

Had heard of Katz 21 for years. But never gotten around to going there. Knew from others that the prices are not for the faint hearted. Be prepared for the bill, this is not your typical Corpus Christi restaurant. We went to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Made reservations, arrived about 15 minutes before. Was seated immediately. The atmosphere is so... More
