    Catch35 is one of my favorite restaurants, but on Saturday night we drew a rookie server and it was a mess. Waited 30 minutes after we sat down to get a bottle of wine we ordered, and it went further downhill from there. Not normal for this place.

    Seafood are fresh and tasted very well, but disappointing on the portion, for the price paid. i.e. Lobster and crab ($50), they served only the tail, (No head and claws), and one Alaskan crab leg. Oysters at $30/dozen although they tasted very well, they were not the "meaty" variety. The oysters' meat was small. My party of two spent $150 on food only but still felt hungry after dinner (Both our portions controlled but not the Price)

    This restaurant is a good seafood restaurant in Naperville. Easy to find. Good location. Parking is close at hand. My only issue on the night was that we were seated at a table right next to the door to the kitchen. It was a very busy location and distracted from the overall experience.

    The room is quietly elegant, with comfortable, solid chairs; the lighting is soft, but not dim and one can see the colors of the food and appreciate the appearance of the darker wines; a carpeted floor and well designed walls and ceiling, as well as table cloths and padded chairs, minimize resonance. The service is attentive and our server (Craig) responded to our special inquiries without hesitation. The food was delicious and well presented. All in our party of six were served simultaneously. Fine sauces did not overwhelm the principle ingredients.

    Have loved Catch 35 for years downtown. Now in Naperville used to love to come for special dinners. Went for my husband's Bday with two teenagers. It has just gotten too expensive. Two glasses of wine with dinner & only two ordering salads check over $250 just not worth it. Maybe I would take clients or just my husband and I but as a family we need to go elsewhere.

    It had been a year since our last visit but we will be returning more frequently given our positive dining experience last week. Service was very strong and food was impressive. Started with the beet salad which was outstanding. The sockeye salmon was very good and my wife loved her sea bass. Key lime pie that we shared was a nice ending for the meal.

    Like this restaurant, although not the place to eat anything but seafood...steak wasn't good (per my wife). I found the chowder ok, the sashimi decent and the lobster good (albeit expensive)...waitress was good enough, although she seemed a bit overworked trying to multitask (holding another tables bottle of wine as she took our order)...a bit put off by the $1 "upcharge" to get crumbled blue cheese on a steak as a replacement for what was offered on the menu - you would think a place taking you for $100 might consider looking the other way on a spoonful of cheese..

    The restaurant was very accommodating from the very start. We had made a dinner reservation for a party of 2 several days prior to our visit. We were able to change to a larger party the day before. When our 6:30 reservation time ended up being quite early for our planned arrival, they were able to accommodate us almost an hour early. The menu offered many excellent choices, and the prix fixe selections were certainly a great value. No complaints about the cocktails and wine we ordered. Wait staff was extremely attentive. Overall ambiance was very relaxing and conducive to easy conversation at the table. Would definitely return to Catch 35.

    When I made the reservation I noted that this was our anniversary. Our server greeted us with a full knowledge of our special day. It was immediately obvious that she had taken the time to familiarize herself with our reservation before we arrived. The food was excellent and the service was attentive throughout the meal. I was impressed with the quiet atmosphere that allowed my wife and I to have a nice conversation at dinner without having to "yell" over the noise of the restaurant. A very pleasant experience!

    Everything we ordered was exceptional except for the lobster. And at $59 that was surprising. The asparagus tempura and the szechwan scallops were both out of this world. My wife really enjoyed the medallions as well. Overall a little pricey but you get what you pay for (except in the lobster department). My daughter doesn't like fish, seafood or steak so there were very limited options. I would go back, but not with kids.

    We haven't eaten here in a number of years and the waiter was very helpful in us making our selections. The appetizer selection was good. The waiter noted that we would be able to order oysters at half price based upon our arrival time. We did and enjoyed them. We also had the Sashimi appetizer that we enjoyed. The salad was only average item we had. Our meals were excellent. Prior visits the entire menu was ala carte and we found the overall price to be excessive. That was one reason we haven't been there in years. A gift certificate was the motivator for us to come back. Now each entrée includes some vegetable and some starch. We appreciate that. There are plenty of restaurants in Naperville and this was necessary to compete.

    Service was so slow, the waiter would leave with "some" of the drink orders and didn't take all of them. He seemed somewhat disorganized , the food, for the most part, everyone seemed to enjoy it, my only issue was with two plates of the same food, the sauce was spicy and not eatable along with the fingerling potatoes they were undercooked.

    The food was great with nice flavors. The service we received was awesome--very helpful with wine choices, etc. My only complaint was the somewhat loud techno/dance music with a driving beat. It insidiously seemed to get louder as the night wore on. It was actually somewhat exhausting by the end of the night to tune the music out so I could concentrate on what my table mates were discussing. It just seemed out of place--definitely not conducive to a leisurely meal.

    Food is always good here. We both had the stuffed lobster tail specials. Started with the crab bisque and the seafood chowder and finished with key lime pie. Bread is also outstanding. Only a couple of small service hiccups. Waitperson handed us a dessert menu when the key lime pie was included in the special. Also, the initial bill had the wine at full price when we chose a half price special. Both were rectified, but for this type of restaurant, mistakes like that should not be made.

    Very nice looking place in Naperville; the decorations and the parking were great. The appetizers were great, but the meals portions for the price did not match. The Fish and Chips, had way more chips to cover up for the 2 small pieces of fish for$21. Not impressed. The Sangria was not Sangria, rather was red wine with 7 up. We have not tried the Catch-35 in Chicago yet, hope it is better than this one in Naperville.

    My husband and I enjoyed our Anniversary dinner on Friday. The service was wonderful as usual and my husbands meal of Sea Bass was fabulous. I had the King Crab legs as I normally do and was very disappointed. The portion was much smaller than usual and the quality was just OK. There was one piece that was nice, firm and sweet, but the rest was pulpy and fishy tasting. Definitely not worth the $59 price tag. I've had better at an all you can eat seafood buffet. So, that was very disappointing. The manager was very concerned and ending up paying for my wine. We will go back, but I don't think I would order crab legs again. The entire Crab/Lobster/Surf N Turf menu is overpriced. The rest of the menu is quite reasonable for what it is.
