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 $29.99

Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first time at Catch 35. The food was excellent. I'm not a huge fish fan but both my wife and I have various fish dishes and they were Excellent. My kids had steaks and they were very good as well. The drinks were well made. The server was good but could have been a bit better. Just not as smooth as what would be expected in this level of restaurant; a minor nuance however. "

  • "We regularly visit Chicago to try its restaurant scene and selected Catch 35 because of the seafood theme. Catch 35 easily met our high expectations. We were also delighted with the jazz trio. We will definitely return during our next visit to Chicago."

  • "Great food….great service. Upscale with big bar. Had the twin lobster tails, they were delicious. The further back in the restaurant you sit, the quieter it becomes."

  • "We were traveling and only for a night in Chicago, my husband forgot his sport coat and ended up going with an nfl jacket. Server kept looking at my husbands jacket the entire time he was talking to us. I think he thought we couldn't afford our meal. I also noted he was making a face when others were walking by (and he had to wait for them). If you think you are superior than others, you should consider taking another job. Food and wine were spectacular. I am a very observant person and felt a bit uncomfortable throughout our meal, which I shouldn't have, after all I spent over $300 for three people."

  • "Catch 35 is a really nice restaurant with good food. The staff is very friendly and accommodating which makes for a great experience. One thing that could have been better is the length of time it took for valet to get the car. It took 10-15mins and there were no other patrons waiting for cars. Other than that, it's a great place to dine. "

  • "The timing between the salad and our entrees was excellent. Did not feel rushed. The lobster and salmon were both outstanding and well presented. Like that the entrees came with a potato and vegetable. It was a tie between the key lime pie and the apple tart."

  • "we had a 5 p.m. reservation for dinner and arrived a bit early. we only waited about 5 minutes for our table and were greeted right away. the appetizer, entree and dessert came out in a reasonable time frame, and was very good. our glasses of water were never empty and we were consistently asked by staff if we needed anything. the food was great and service was friendly and prompt. a wonderful date night, special occasion, or even family night out restaurant that's easy to find."

  • "The service was top notch, choices were solid and food was very good. For over 20 years this is a great restaurant where you can always count on a well cooked, well delivered meal. There are so many more dining choices now but Catch-35 is always a solid go to place."

  • "This was our bi-annual visit to chicago, which for the last 4 yrs has included Catch 35. The meal was excellent as we relied on the waiter for his suggestions as we always had the same thing and wanted to change. He didn't disappoint, his help allowed us to select items which made this dinner the best ever at Catch 35, and that is quite a mouth full!!"

  • "There is a reason why some restaurants survive in a city filled with many great dining options. Chilean Sea Bass is always excellent here. Weekend Jazz trio is smooth and entertaining. great Bar to hang in for an after dinner drink with your date. Most entrees are above average. Service is professional with just the right amount of attention. Pre fixe is just ok."

  • "My girlfriend and I often eat at the Catch 35 in Naperville. They have outstanding food, service and a great romantic ambience. We had tickets to the symphony in Chicago, and thought we would try this location. We had great food, and the ambience was stellar. However, our waitress did not provide the same great experience we enjoyed in Naperville. She spilled a good portion of our presecco when she uncorked it. She did offer to replace the bottle, but I declined thinking that she would replace it with a different one after she poured our glasses. She did not. I believed Catch 35 should have compensated us for the loss of drinks from this bottle."

  • "We were in the city for an overnight and I have eaten at Catch 35 before, in Chicago and Naperville. My husband and I love your restaurant, so I chose it for my daughter. She also loved it. Our waiter Chris was very friendly and didn't rush us but help us with our choices. My husband and I are coming back next Saturday before a show."

  • "It had been several years since my husband and I have been back to Catch 35. The Alaskan halibut T- bone tasted like it was grilled right next to a steak on a grill. The flavor was amazing. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his scallops as well. We normally sit in the restaurant area, but this time we were seated closer to the bar area where they had a live jazz singer which was nice. We would prefer to sure in the restaurant area in the future if there is no live music due to the amount of foot traffic that walked past our table. We really like this place and will always go back."

  • "Pecan pie was a little strange, halibut not very flavorful, yellow fin tuna poke was good. Loved the Brussels sprouts. Creme brulee was good. The wait staff was great, very accommodating. Nothing was outstanding regarding the food other than the fish was fresh and the menu is made according to the fish available for that day."

  • "Some of the best fin fish in town! Also a destination for scallops. Knowledgeable wait staff. Lovely presentations. Yummy soups yummy - though ask about the ingredients if you are a vegetarian. Salads are delicious, but when we share, it would be nice if the wait staff divided it for us into two plates. We were recently at Catch 35 before a Goodman performance, and our wait staff got us out of there well in time for the curtain, without seeming to hurry. If you want to have a conversation, ask for a quiet table or booth in the back, away from the bar. We have taken out-of-town visitors to Catch 35, and they have always left happy. Note: You really must have reservations. We recently walked over after a Sunday matinee, and were disappointed."

  • "The food was good, service was ok... very slow bringing appetizer and soup. Oysters Rockefeller were the worst I've ever eaten and they did not give me the ice cream the was to accompany dessert. Entree and soup was their saving grace."

  • "Great date at Catch35! We made reservations based on reviews and was not disappointed. The crab cake app was tasty and full of crab, the scallops were well cooked and a large serving. The crab-crusted tilapia was a hit, especially the creamy sauce served aside it. To top it off we had Key Lime Pie for dessert, very rich and tart, just the way it should be. Our server was polite and entertaining the whole meal, great experience."
