    My wife and I split several starters for dinner along with a bottle of wine. They were all great, but the king crab legs were outstanding. The service was very good as well.

    Catch 35 has a reputation for fresh seafood & has never disappointed. My work friends all like fish & we can each get a different dish due to the extensive off wringing. This location is convenient for a work related dinner. The service is excellent. The wine list has good wines for a reasonable price.

    Going out with a group of six for the first time here was a great surprise! Downtown Naperville is always hopping but after reading reviews from open table we decided to try it. Service was excellent. Large fish variety with great appetizers. Try the soups and the calamari was so light and flavorful. Although fish is a specialty our nonfish eater loved his steak! The manager came over and we received a free appetizer due to being our first time here. We retired to bar after and had great White Russians and Moscow mules! There is another one downtown by the river!

    i took a friend here after dining at Catch 35 downtown Chicago earlier this year. I thoroughly enjoyed both places. It was easy to make a reservation (which I would recommend) on your site. They accommodated a special need we had. Enjoyed the evening very much. It was a bit noisy and tables quite close together.

    Very nice decor, but the food quality for the entrees did not add to the experience. The location is excellent and if the kitchen can prepare meals without drying out the seafood, this should be a good place to visit. Wine list was nice. Service was good but not quite as attentive as expected.

    We had a very enjoyable eating experience, the foof was quite food. We would like to acknowledge the server, Laurae, (name possibly misspelled) who was very pleasant, aware of menu items and able to give us pointers on our wine selections. She also was quite attentive to our customer desires. We had a 3:45pm reservation on 11/01/14 and are pleased with everything about the resturant.

    Quite difficult to find a subject tittle to describe my two great findings in this place: 1) The king crab legs, flavorful, fresh, juicy and sweet ... In short, what a sea delicacy; 2) the best cream brûlée in USA so far, perfect cream texture, and the crust what an interesting journey through the lands of sweet and amargo (tart).

    My party of 6 visited the restaurant for lunch. The service was friendly, unobtrusive, and prompt. I had a dish a few weeks ago that was not on the menu at this time. However, the chef prepared it anyway! What a treat! There is a certain elegant ambiance about this place. An event was taking place in a sectioned off place in the same room. The half walls were decorated nicely, and we didn't hear anyone from that side.

    Been in the industry for a long time, this place did not disappoint. Even after everything I have heard, it lived up to the expectations. Steak was dry aged and fantastic, better than some of the steak houses in Naperville. Ambiance was great, booth in the corner, felt like a mobster with my wife! Great place and even better service. Keep doing what you're doing, it works.

    I visited Catch 35 w/ a friend for late Friday night dinner. We liked our entrees very much (I had the yellowfin tuna poke) & the atmosphere. 2 drawbacks: there was an unlit candle on our table that remained unlit. We didn't complain since we were unsure if it was just for romantic ambiance & it wasn't necessary for us, but it might have been nice anyway. Also, in the time we were there, we noted 2 customers made separate complaints; one for not being seated quickly enough & the other for food that was too salty. Both seemed unnecessarily rude, so we were willing to write them off as coincidental, but it did seem that the staff was a little overstressed at the time. Overall, a lovely experience, though. Pumpkin cheesecake was to die for!

    My husband and I do not get many opportunities to have some adult time for dinner. Catch 35 nailed our "date night". The waiter was great, friendly and knowledgeable. He was very understanding of use having some time to ourselves and encouraged us to take advantage of it which was nice. The food was fantastic. We had seafood, steak, apps and dessert. Very very timely and well presented. I have no complaints and would recommend to friends and family and return for another dinner ourselves. Thanks!

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.

    It was my first time there. The atmosphere was great. Seated quickly since we had reservations. The waiter was excellent. He was very informative and provided thoughtful recommendations. I had the swordfish. I had not had it before so don't know if my reaction was one of swordfish in general or of this particular dining experience. I thought it was average. My wife had the Haddock and it was great. It was a good experience but not sure I would frequent it based on the price/value.

    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.
