    Our dinner was very good but our server, Zach, was FABULOUS. We were out with friends and this was the first time any of us visited the restaurant. Zach made sure we had a great experience. We will come back for Zach and hope that the food is as good as it was on this visit. The scallops and potsticker were amazing.

    Food and service, as always excellent. The after dinner drink of choice is Sambuca - which we have had here a few times. For some reason the 5 cocktails were serviced chilled, almost frozen. When we asked why this traditionally warm drink was served in that manner we were told the bartender was new and thought it should be that way. That was a lot of money spent on our part for her lack of bar knowledge.

    Couldn't believe how absolutely packed this place was at 6:30 PM but since we of course had reservations were still seated immediately. Have been to Catch 35 many times and always love it. The food is outstanding, the service efficient and charming, the ambiance very appealing and pleasant. The two of us shared the Baked Oysters as an appetizer - loved them! As main meals we had the Chilean Sea Bass and the Tuna Sashimi, both to die for. Wine by the glass is reasonably priced and the dessert menu looked tempting but....... What I especially appreciated was how well the staff compliments each other. Since our waiter was very busy one of the Managers (Brent) stepped in to help out. How good is that. We so love Catch 35 and will be back soon.

    I ordered the Saffron Charred Salmon. The flavors were great, but there was a little extra char on one side which left a slightly bittery taste. It was paired with a mascarpone polenta which was delicious, but my plate needed a little brightness, like maybe some greens or citrus. My husband ordered the Filet Medallions and none of the three were cooked the same, so basically just some inconsistencies with the cooking. We were there Saturday night at 7, so I'm sure it was just busy kitchen issues. Overall I enjoyed our meal and the ambiance and we definitely plan on returning.

    First time at Catch 35 in Naperville has made us devotees. Fabulous decor, top flight service, and the seafood that is amazing. We loved the new Chilean Bass preparation that meshed perfectly with the sweet pea risotto and the arugula. The mussels were hearty and in an oh-so-good broth. The pecan pie was the best we ever had. Our waitress said you sell it at the holidays. We look forward to a return trip soon.

    We dined here about a year ago and was disappointed. While on vacation we met a couple from Naperville who told us it was their favorite restaurant, so we decided to give it a second chance, and we are glad we did. The beet salad eas outstanding, we had the whole lobster, which, while not as good as a fresh maile lobster that we had in Maine, it almost tied for first place. One of our guests had the Chilean sea bass, with its seared crust was wonderful. We will definitely visit again.

    Catch 35 has always had good food and a wine list that complements any meal. I had mentioned in an earlier review that the service had gotten less attentive. Well, I am happy the that changed Friday night. Our waiter, Ricky was excellent. Attentive and helpful, he made the halibut and salmon even more enjoyable. I look forward to our next visit.

    We are regulars here, usually eating dinner after a show at the Paramount in Aurora. We have had great meals here many times, but this time, it wasn't up to usual high standards. Appetizer (sashimi) was great, and the beet salad was good. We ordered whitefish (very good) and salmon. We asked the server how they do the salmon, and he said rare. We told him that we didn't want rare but preferred medium. The fish came out more than rare, so we had to send it back. Desserts were very good, but the service was a bit off. By the end of the meal, we had several empty wine glasses, plates from previous courses, etc. sitting on our table. They should have been removed after each course.

    The fish was as fresh as advertised. We started with appetizer scallops and the scallops were perfefctly cooked but the sauce was fabulous. The halibut with lobster was a delicous plateful of food. When we were finished, we were full and very content. Our server Rick did a great job of explaining the menu and the specials and making recommendations and his service was very attentive. Great dining experience and would not hesitate to return.

    Our waiter, Zak, was very attentive, not too intrusive. He to our food allergies and answered our many questions about the menu. Although this is a seafood centric place, I had the best filet Oscar ever... This doesn't happen very often, as we are picky about everything from seating location to air ducts blowing on us. Background music is just enough so you don't hear other table conversations. They've got it all figured out! Great experience :-)

    First of all the sourdough bread is scrumptious! Hard not to fill up on it. Lovely soft butter served in scallop shell. Heirloom tomato salad perfect with shaved fennel and radishes. Mussels in garlic/butter/wine--succulent and perfect. Halibut and lobster main dish with pesto potatoes excellent. Sept. is lobster month so good time to get your lobster fix. Good key lime pie, more of a lime cheesecake. Only problem: the 8 panels of "art" on the upper walls; they look like coloring book pictures. There are so many good artists out there; even lovely photos of sea creatures would be welcome. Silvery blues, ocean creatures like tropical fish or seahorses done semi-abstractly would fit better. Otherwise the decor is lovely.

    Catch 35 is a delight if you love food that is prepared impeccably using the freshest ingredients creatively. The menu and wine list has something to please any palate from its extensive fish and seafood selections to entrées that will make any carnivore drool. The décor is fresh and classy, table size ample (I hate crowded eating surfaces), pristine white tablecloths and the most comfortable leather chairs I have ever experienced in a dining establishment. Our server was extremely attentive without hovering and very knowledgeable of the menu and wine offerings. Consider finishing your meal with the flourless chocolate cake with hazelnuts, crème anglaise and raspberry coulis. It is divine, as was out our meal. Highly recommend Catch 35!

    Four of us went to Catch 35 for lunch to celebrate my birthday. September also happened to be Lobster month at Catch 35. How lucky is that! I had the Maine lobster roll which was outstanding! The lobster bisque was better than any we had tasted. It had chunks of lobster floating about. The crab cakes and the salmon were superb. There is nothing left to say, except there are few September days left to take advantage of the Lobster Bash!

    My only dilemma is knowing what to order, so many amazing things I always want. I have never been disappointed with any dish, especially anything from the specials menu (highly recommend ordering off that menu if something catches you eye and pallet)!

    As group of 4 on Sunday night we disappointed that they ran out of their signature Sea Bass and Halibut. We dug slightly deeper into the menu to find the road less traveled. What we found was worth the trip. The bisque was made with lobster today. Very tasty, although I got a bowl...should have gotten a cup. The yellowfin sashimi was amazing. The white wine broth with the mussels was too salty for our taste. The wine list was adequate, but not much more.

    Had not been to Catch 35 in several years but it didn't take us long to realize that the quality has not changed. I thought our waiter, Ricky, was a chef because of the way he described the evening specials. He did so in intricate detail and also made recommendations. Ambiance is very pleasing as well. There were four of us and before we left the restaurant, one person in our party said, 'I want to come here for my birthday' ...which happens to be in just one week. So we will be back to enjoy Catch 35 again, soon.

    The food for one of use was superb unfortunately the other had an issue with the preparation. The wine was average considering the price but was still enjoyable. The service was lacking and as we all know that has a tendency to stay with us regardless of the food. It will be awhile before I go back.

    Our oysters were a tad "fishy". The lobster on the halibut, and the corn side were both cold. Our waiter left us for a while, had to ask for his return. The swordfish was wonderful, and the halibut fresh and I got a side of bernaise sauce :) Would still go back.

    I think what distinguishes great restaurants from good ones is the first impressions. That being said, the hostess and hosts are very chipper and that starts the evening right. Following that, our waiter was very professional. Knew his stuff and was able to handle suggestions for my wife's allergy to onions. Although it was busy, he didn't forget our table and was always very attentive. We didn't feel rushed. The menu was fantastic. They had specials galore this week that I haven't experienced in the past. Many things included lobster bites, including the mashed potatoes - yum! However, if you want romance, sit away from the section of booths bordering the bar - a little too noisy, but not overwhelming so.
