We were invited to a business dinner at Katsu Seafood & Steak House in San Marcos and it was a good and nice place to eat fantastic Sushi. Friendly people and great food. Very recommendable.

This location has always been good for fantastic Japanese food. It is very reasonable and your family can enjoy good food at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and you will never walk away hungry.

This saddens me to see a place which I loved so much go downhill so badly. As I previously posted Sam, Kit, and Mickey are awesome, they are what made this place a fantastic experience, and they were Katsu. It is horrible when an owner treats his employees so poorly, to take SO much from them, to take from their... More

I went in for dinner and found out that my once favorite restaurant would be no more. Apparently, the restaurant has sold and new management made the decision to let go of their three sushi chefs: Mickey, Kit and Sam. Honestly, the only reason we go to Katsu was to sit at the sushi bar and get served by Mickey,... More

My wife and I love good sushi on occasion but in addition, we seem to also lean towards a good sushi roll. Katsu has several and many are on their 40% off menu! Perfect! Some fabulous, fresh sushi and a monster roll of your choosing and believe me, you're set! Oh, I forgot... unfiltered saki is ma perfect side drink...... More

I love restaurants that have a teppan grill. I don't think this restaurant is any different from most teppan grills - nothing unique or different about what they do, but it's good and solid. I had the steak, shrimp, and chicken. I took my mother-in-law and she loved it!

We are hosting our daughter and her three teen-aged daughters from snowy New Hampshire and wanted to make this a memorable dinner experience. As we have taken other guests here on multiple occasions over the past five years, we looked forward to and anticipated a fun experience and decent food. We were all disappointed. Strike one: our chef spoke almost... More

Went with friends who said it was best sushi place in town. Well the sushi was ok. Nothing special average actually. But the service was atrocious. I don't know if they sent our waiter home or what but we ended up asking servers in other areas for drink refills, our check etc.... Great company but not a very good dining... More
