A word from Catch 35 - Chicago
Catch 35 Seafood and Premium Steaks is just a short walk from Chicago’s exciting Theatre district. The restaurant the Chicago Sun-Times calls “one of the classiest and most innovative seafood restaurants around” is perfect for a pre- or post-show dinner. Also, when Theatre patrons dine at Catch 35, the cost of valet will be deducted from the guest check.

The menu offers variety, appeal and flavor with the city’s freshest seafood and steaks, such as Chilean sea bass, Szechwan scallops, seared Yellow Fin tuna, a bone-in rib eye and a chef’s cut New York strip. Whether you’re dining for business or pleasure, every experience is special at Catch 35.

Join us for live jazz Tuesday through Saturday with the Eric Hochberg Trio led by Eric Hochberg, one of Chicago’s most well-known and versatile jazz musicians.

Catch 35 is now featuring a Special 3 Course Value Dinner, with soup or salad; a choice of 6 popular entrees and any house dessert for only $33.95

  • " Nice selection of oysters on the half shell and many other options, too. I would absolutely recommend it to others."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Catch 35 is consistently good. The food and service is always wonderful from the hostess to the check this is Chicago at its best"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "All of the food was fresh and tasted great. Would definitely come back here again!"
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Discount parking with dinner and the choice of leaving your vehicle there while attending a Broadway production was an excellent idea. For this reason coupled with fine dining, I will be back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "While the restaurant is large, where we were seated was a quiet spot. Our server was terrific, and we both really enjoyed our entrees. The fish was done just right, and the sides were very flavorful. A 'go-backer'."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I really enjoyed Catch35. I thought the food was outstanding and fit for a foodie. The staff was attentive but not overboard. Everyone was friendly, even the patrons. A relative was visiting for a special occasion and it was a perfect choice for dinner. The bar area was nice with live instrument players...not too much. I would definitely go again."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here on July 11 2014. I had the sea bass & he had the shrimp surf & turf. The sea bass was served on a bed of risotto-like rice and grilled vegetables. Everything was cooked perfectly. For dessert, sticky toffee cake. Amazing. Our server was phenomenal. There was a different person filling water and yet another who delivered/ removed our entrees. The service was just right: not too rushed, not too lacking. I would definitely dine here again. In addition, they asked us if we were going to a show so that they could validate our parking & ensure that we would not be late. That was much appreciated!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "It was a very quiet Thursday evening. We started with drinks at the bar. My mojito was excellent. For dinner, I had some truly excellent baked clams (really mouthwatering) followed by a mixed greens salad. The salad was a mess completely soaked with vinaigrette. The waiter, who was extremely pleasant and helpful, took it away and brought a new salad, with dressing on the side, was worth eating. For the main, I had a Lake Superior whitefish (being in Chicago) which was slightly mushy but still very tasty. All in all, pretty good."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We had a reservation at 7:00 PM and were 15 minutes early, yet they seated us within minutes. As quickly as we were seated, we were served ice water and fresh warm bread. The server was not far behind and took our drink orders. Upon returning with the drinks, he went through the specials and had answers for all of our questions. Salads, followed by dinner was quick and delicious. Overall, it was a great experience and we would go back there again next time we are in Chicago."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We were visiting Chicago for the first time and decided to check out Catch 35 for our last dinner. From the time we walked in until the moment we left, it was a wonderful experience with awesome food and service. Definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in downtown Chicago."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I would recommend Catch 35 as an excellent choice for pre theater dining. The food is fresh, well prepared and the staff is well trained."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Again Catch35 met our expectations with a fine dinner and excellent service. We very much enjoy the non rushed well spaced servings of our dinners provide by our server, John. Time to enjoy some conversation with wine and an appetizer well before salads were placed, and the same for the entrees, and again with coffee and dessert. For sure we will be back for next season at the Goodman."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Not only is the food great with wonderful service, but when they know you have theater tickets, they get you in and out on time. And the food is piping hot! Really nice atmosphere, too! Would highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "This was our first time at Catch 35. The restaurant was quite lovely, but it was noisy! The food was good, but costly. We had two glasses of wine, 3 cocktails, one cup of soup, one appetizer, two entrees, and one dessert. The bill was $152.00. We had a drink at the bar after dinner and enjoyed a 3-piece jazz group with a singer. We enjoyed our evening, but I think I would probably not return."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We often choose Catch 35 before going to The Goodman. They have free valet parking and the food is always excellent. Sunday night did not disappoint. We were not rushed, our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. Water and wine glasses were filled without interrupting our conversation and eating."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "What a great place to enjoy awesome seafood. Great ambiance and service."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Had a great experince here. Both the food and service were excellent!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Very disappointing. I did not enjoy the sea bass, which the waiter said was the most popular item on the menu. It was impossible to enjoy the fish with such an overpowering preparation. I really did not enjoy my selection."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I was very pleasantly surprised. Service was prompt and thoughtful. I thought the prices would be a bit high but they were very reasonable. I will be returning."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We went here before seeing a show at the Bank of America Theater (The Last Ship) and were psyched about the free valet parking for the duration of dinner and the show. Great deal for Chicago! The restaurant didn't make it clear that you had to notify your waiter about the show so he could then credit our bill the amount of parking ($12). So when we returned after the show, we didn't have our receipt and ended up having to pay for parking."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Catch 35 was a great find recommended by the staff at the Burnham. The food was delicious and the service was great. We loved everything we had. The scallop appetizer was notable as was the tuna poke entree (if you appreciate raw fish. Our waiter Ann was excellent as well."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Beautiful dinner at a great place. Catch 35 was very gluten free accommodating, bringing piping hot gluten free rolls to accompany the bisque. Soft shell crabs were delicious, and the fresh oysters were a fantastic starter. The service was really top notch, attentive but never intrusive. The pea risotto was a bit bland and paled in contrast with the garlic mashed potatoes. Dessert was delightful."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We were able to get a last minute reservation on 4th of July weekend here. We were seated right away. Wait staff very attentive but not too much. The crab cakes were delicious but I am used to them being a little more crunchy. Yellowfin Tuna Poke was outstanding.! My friend had the Whitefish. He gave the mashed potatoes a so-so and regretted not changing for a rice. Overall a great experience."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Great food with an excellent location within a short walking distance of Chicago's theatre district. We valet parked at the restaurant and left our car there while we watched the show."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Had a good dinner on July 4th. Nothing about the meal really stood out ... Miso soup was very good. Thumbs up for accommodating my seared salmon request."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My wife thought she was ordering a tuna steak and what she received was a lump of cold tuna. She ordered in error, but the dish was not appetizing. The oysters Rockefeller and Raw oysters were outstanding. The crab cakes were good. Overall catch 35 was average for the price we paid."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Great choice. Wonderful food. Very conscientious wait staff. Our waitress kept us on time even though our entrees were delayed. My parents and partner all enjoyed the meal. Recommended!"

  • "First time at Catch 35 for me & the other two in my party. We all agreed, the food was Excellent and well proportioned. I will absolutely go back."

  • "I'd not been in many years because of the memories of fishy smells at the entrance. It was much better. Got there for lunch, not terribly full, but pleasant. A very nice waitress was very attentive. My birthday guest declined dessert, but the waitperson remembered and brought 1 scoop of Homer's cappuccino ice cream. The shrimp pad thai was delicious and the ice cream, heavenly. The only misstep was saying the soup was like manhattan style chowder. it was a creamy tomato based soup, delicious, but very rich."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Catch 35 has a wide variety of fish and steaks. The fresh fish is displayed and Looks and smells great. Steaks are cooked to Perfection. Our service was the best I have had anywhere for years."

  • "simply put, Catch 35 is 1 of the best seafood restaurants in Chicago. great service, great food, great vibes."

  • "I have been going to Catch 35 for 16 years now. Have always found the food and service very good whether for a quiet dinner with family or a business meal. Good seafood in a variety of presentations from simple to unusual but have never had a bad meal here. Important to be clear what ambiance you are looking for as the dining area runs from pretty lively by the bar area to quiet and personal as you move further in."

  • "Had a great dinner celebrating our anniversary! As usual, the Sea Bass was fantastic!!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Two of us for lunch. My friend had the haddock which looked lovely and he loved it. I had the tuna nicoise, in which tradition was broken decisively. The little green beans were pickled. The little boiled potatoes were 4 or 5 bites large. Most of the greens were of the tasteless, variety. The dressing was non-existent. There was some raw onion. The tuna, however, was excellent. The room is comfortable, and the service very good. They just should work on the nicoise."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I had the scallops which were delish! The portion size was perfect and the presentation lovely. I would recommend!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014

  • "Catch 35 is a part of every visit to Chicago; it has been our favorite restaurant in the city for many years. Service and food are always excellent. Great seafood and great preparations."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Although we went on a Sunday night, it was quite busy in here. Our waiter had a very large table behind us so was a little busy with them and took longer than normal to come back for our order. There were very limited selections for wine by the glass. My daughter ordered the scallops and I had the sea bass. The food came out promptly, hot and delicious except for the split pea risotto, which the consistency and flavor were not appealing to the pallet at all. We were going to a show so we didn't have time for coffee or dessert."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Went to Catch 35 for dinner with a friend from work. Lots of choices for fresh seafood! I got the haddock, and really enjoyed it. The beet salad w/ goat cheese was also excellent. Service was a little slow, and my wine arrived too long after my meal for my preference. However, for an after-work dinner, this is THE place to go for seafood."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The atmosphere, décor and service were outstanding. I was pleasantly surprised to be treated to live entertainment by Dee Alexander (I am a personal fan). It was my birthday and dining at your restaurant was a wonderful way to celebrate the day. Thank You."
