Katsuno is where you make a reservation for authentic highest level Japanese cuisine in Queens. The agedashi tofu, duck udon, salmon appetizers and salads, beef tataki, poached egg, octopus vinaigrette, are all amazing.

Superb authentic Japanese cuisine served in a calm delightful atmosphere. This is a neighborhood gem of a restaurant worth seeking out for any dining occasion. Those in the know about Japanese food will find an exceptional variety of wonderful dishes to choose from, along with an excellent sake list. The team behind the restaurant are completely dedicated to their craft and very welcoming. The ingredients are quality, and the preparation and presentation are true to Japanese cuisine as one may experience this in Japan, an amazing country I have had the great pleasure to tour several times. Every visit here I try a new dish, and am continuously pleased with the variety of offerings. Try something new here, you’ll be delighted. Truly a favorite restaurant of mine. Be sure to make a reservation as they often book up and walking in is usually discouraged due to the intimate space and capacity. Highly recommended.

This is a Japanese restaurant where chef-owners dine. I know because I had a lovely conversation with one during this visit to cozy yet excellent Katsuno.
My self-designed tasting menus typically start with the zensai - 3 small plates of the chef's choosing. Usually one is kabocha, the other two vary. Consistently delightful way to open the palate.
This time, I ordered a first course of madai from Japan (!), unagi and 1 other white fish (senior moment-please pardon me). Beautifully prepared and presented.
The tenzaru soba was perfect for a post-beach re-entry into urban life.

This is a rare neighborhood gem, worth the trip.

I have been to Katsuno many times. It is a small restaurant and I really suggest you make a reservation, especially on the weekend. The food has always been excellent and this time, it was just as good as it always has been. Best compliment I can give is if you live in far away, going to Katsuno is worth the trip!

Absolutely the best Sashimi we've ever had. Flavorful, tender and served at the proper temperature to enhance taste - unlike most Sushi restaurants that serve icebox sushi (in accordance with Dept of Health regulations). The wasabi is real and the soy sauce home brewed. Truly an exceptional meal at 3x the price of standard sushi houses.

Is it worth $135 for 2 - Yes to experience a fine Omikase dinner - but too expensive to be my goto restaurant.

Came here to celebrate a birthday and it was very special. Food is excellent, not your typical Japanese fare. The chef makes everything that much more special. Service was very good, the main waitress was very sweet and attentive. The only thing I’d change is the ambience, make it a bit more romantic. Otherwise I am happy to return in the near future. Excellent hidden gem!

This was the second time my partner and I went to Katsuno, and it’s a favorite. We went to Japan earlier this year, and Katsuno is the best Japanese food we have had stateside. You know you’re in good hands when your tempura appetizer has a perilla leaf in it. Sashimi platter was fresh and beautifully presented. Tuna crudo with miso and scallion was a great balance of sweet and salty. The egg tofu custard with sea urchin was a lovely texture and pleasantly briny. Our server even graciously found us a particular type of sake from the back based on a picture we showed her from our trip, and it was just right. Protip: go a couple blocks on Metropolitan to Silk Cakes for dessert.

Katsuno is an authentic Japanese restaurant. It’s small, only about 10 tables. But the taste of the food is huuuge. It is a favorite of our and we have worked our way through most of the menu.
No losers. I think it is closed Monday and Tuesday That means you have 5 other days to treat yourself.

Everything was oishii from our zensai to our main course. Fish was very fresh, and my husband's steak was like butter.
