    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)! I also LOVE the Oyster Happy Hour, GREAT deal!

    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.

    We had 11 of us for my wife's birthday party last weekend at Catch-35 in Naperville. On other occasions, the two of us have sat in the bar area. Always a great meal and the service/staff were great. For the birthday party, several people had specials and some had ala carte. The waiter very nicely split-up the bill by couples.

    I made a reservation for our anniversary and it was one of the best restaurant experiences I ever had. The restaurant itself has a great décor and can fit for casual to romantic occasions...The food was fantastic but I was more impressed by the waiter and manager. The waiter was great, funny, friendly and attentive..the manager actually came by the table and welcomed us as first time customers..I travel and eat at restaurants all over the US, Europe, Canada and can honestly say have never had a manager come over and welcome me. I thought the overall expeience was tremendous, and was very impressed by the food and more so people...

    My wife and I have been here a few times for special occasions. Each time, the service has been exceptional. The menu has plenty of options for even the pickiest. This most recent visit, I had the Sea Bass, and I honestly have never had a piece of fish that good at any price. Was a real treat that was accompanied by a poached egg that complimented the bacon crust on the fish perfectly. My wife's crab legs were plentiful, but she didn't think they were worth the 60 dollar price they charged. The only other thing that we felt could have been improved was our seating. We had tables sandwiched in front and back of us that had us feeling a little pinned to our table. Another foot of room to spread out a little would have been welcomed.

    Our fished was undercooked. We were offered no appology and management never came to the table. We then order crab cakes, which we were charged for, these were greasy. When we got the bill, we were charged full price for a 1/2 price bottle of wine, again, no appology. No excuse for this terrible service at such a high end restaurant.

    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)

    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.

    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.
