A word from Catch Miami
Exactly one year after launching their flagship restaurant concept CATCH in New York’s Meatpacking District, EMM Group introduced CATCH Miami, its first outpost of the popular eatery in South Beach on Collins Avenue at The James Royal Palm. Since opening its doors in January 2013, CATCH Miami, led by Top Chef Season 3 winner, Executive Chef Hung Huynh, has enjoyed packed reservation books and rave reviews, proving CATCH’s fast-passed New York City style of dining has found itself a home amongst the people of Miami.

The nearly 4,000 square foot restaurant, fashioned between two floors and 190 seats, leaves much of the venue's landmarked, art-deco style interior intact. Upon arrival guests walk thru the 40 seat outdoor patio and into a 1,770 square foot First Floor Dining Room where the Main Bar sits in striking semblance to the hotel's original structure.

    Main room only open Fri /Sat, we were seated in the downstairs room, very dark, zero ambience. Hellfire Roll good, Mahi Tacos mushy and tasteless, 2 Hamachi Sushi, came to our table as 2 Hamachi Sashimi, asked our waiter "my wife ordered Sushi yes? " He said yes and he'd be right back, He returned to our table with a BOWL OF SUSHI RICE and said "here's the rice". My wife and I just looked at each other, in a bad way, it's make your own sushi at the table in CATCH??? Sautéed Snapper was good and the Tuna cooked simply was just that, didn't seem very fresh. NEVER HAVE WE BEEN TREATED LIKE THIS IN A RESTURANT, MAKE YOUR OWN SUSHI- "HERE'S THE RICE" MAYBE THIS IS WHY THE MAIN ROOM IS ONLY OPEN ON FRI / SAT ....THIS ALL FOR $200 plus

    We decided to eat here as we were staying at the Loews Hotel next door. We were not disappointed! The dinner was delicious. We opted for the crispy snapper for two. I was unsure if I would be able to handle the spicy sauce it comes with, since I don't like anything too spicy, Our server was very accommodating bringing me a sampler of their other sauces on the side so I could find what I liked. They were all good, but the pineapple mango chutney was my favorite. Also, I loved to cocktail I had, the "Iris". Overall, it was a lovely experience. So often the service in Miami seems to leave a lot to be desired. This excellent service was a welcome surprise.

    We were two couples so we gave two credit card to settle the bill, so we each got a credit card tab to settle. all is good, but we notice that the restaurant suggested the gratuities 15% 18% etc. but the problem is that the % was not on our shared bill but on the total bill was caused us to pay double for gratuities cause each one of us left the gratuities for the whole tab.

    Great food meal! However rushed pushed and annoyed with the service. It wasn't even a busy night and they kept taking dishes away with food on the plate. Kept trying to push big wines when I was satisfied with a wine that I picked that want cheap. $100. Food was great but usually service overrides everything. Have been to many so so restos and wanted to go back cause the servers/ service was great. Have been to Resto where the food was off charts but service horrible therefore experience of food changed my appetite. Word of advice relax and let people pick what they want!!

    The food is great. Good tastings come with a high price, but worth it. Service on the other hand did not follow. Our waiter had attitude. No smiles. No personality. Did not make us feel welcome. This restaurant cost too much and to have a server like this really makes you think of the kind of training they receive and the kind of people they hire. I don't care if this is was opened by the New York franchise with great reviews. I would not go back and expected more.

    I ate here alone as I was travelling for work. The restaurant is beautiful & the food is delicious. I found the wat staff a little TOO attentive ( I was asked so many times if I enjoyed the food it was hard to find time to actually eat it) but there are worse crimes. Highly recommended, especially the spicy shrimp!

I would not return. its ok if you with a few friends, and you want to share some apps and have a few cocktails. But I would not go there for any special occasion!

    Each time I go back the portiions seem smaller :-( It was a slow Sunday night and the staff herded everyone in the downstairs section so it looked busy and cranked up the volume of bar music so no one could hear another person next to them. Asked the hostess to turn the volume down a little and she did only to have the manager crank it up.....such poor communication. Too bad as the food is really good.

    Food was amaze especially the grilled octopus appetizer, i wish it was a main course its soooo good (a must have)!!!! Our waiter was "Gabriel" and honestly the service was quite bad, he was not engaged or suggestive and our host saved the day by sending over birthday dessert because she knew it was my birthday, i don't even think he said happy birthday when he brought it to the table! We loved the food and ambiance however the service was poor which i think had mostly to do with our waiter! we chose not to make the service ruin our night and we will be back!

    I actually didn't attend this dinner. We sent our college age daughter and 9 friends there for her birthday. The restaurant called me a couple of times to make sure everything would run smoothly. The group said the food was fantastic- as it always is- but more importantly to me this time, the service was fantastic. I was a bit worried that this group would not be attended to, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The report back to me was that everyone was treated great. They even brought my daughter a birthday dessert. I can't say enought nice things about this place!!

    So greeted and seated very nicely.. Ordered with one of the two waiters that was taking care of us.. Had a Chinese firedrill feeling to the place, then- ALL OF THE FOOD, salads, main courses, EVERYTHING hits the table all at once. Weirdest experience ever at a restaurant. So we ate the hot food and sent the sushi and salads back. Not sure what to say except that the food was good for what is was worth but this place needs some help logistically. Fun location, try and sit outdoors.

    After reading many reviews on Catch Miami, I am was expecting to be greeted by a snooty host and to wait 45 minutes for my table. My table was booked for Saturday 9 pm, busy times. We showed up at 9pm, we're asked if we wanted to be inside or outside, got seated right away. The waiter was great. The food as good as in Catch NY. Good place.

    We sat outside because the weather was beautiful but it faces the street instead of the ocean so it is a bit loud. The waiters and service was wonderful. The food was outstanding, we shared some of the cold sushi appetizers the tuna was the best I ever had. Then for dinner we shared the Cantonese lobster which was enough for 3 ladies, I will be dreaming of it. Pricy but definitely worth it.

    Food was great, service eh. Had an issue when we first came with bartender, but he was nice enough in the end to apologize, which is more than i can say for the manager. When we told her about the problem, it was as if she couldn't be bothered. I'd hate to see how she would handle a real big problem. She was very unprofessional, and not a real good representation of this restaurant. Our server was great, very helpful, and the food was good-but there are a lot of good places in Miami, and if management is lacking, which is surprising for a big restaurant group like this, the fickle Miami scene will go elsewhere. Hopefully they will get it together.

    Went for dinner on a weeknight and ordered six appetizers to be split between my husband and me. First, the oysters were brought out fairly quickly. From that point it was 10-15 minutes between each dish. It was so absurd we had to laugh. Everything we tried was delicious though which made it half tolerable.

    We chose Catch Miami as our first night dining choice on a getaway to South Beach. We ordered the Cantonese Lobster which was recommended by our waiter as a house specialty. It was good but not great. It also arrived from the kitchen too quickly. That was disappointing. Our waiter apologized and compensated us by bringing out a complimentary snack and a desert,which we enjoyed. I would return to Catch in the future.

    Their fish and sushi and raw bar are all delicious. But they seem to over-sit each server so the waitstaff are too busy to take care of each table. We were sat 40 minutes after our reservation time and were given only a wine list. 12 minutes later, we were given water and a food menu and we ordered the wine. Our wine didn't arrive for another 15 minutes! Also, the wine list is very limited and they were out of our first choice selection. We had to keep flagging down people to get water, soy sauce cups etc. We poured our own wine. We would never return b/c of how poor the service was since there are so many restaurants in Miami with great food and great service.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Catch while we were vacationing in Miami. What a great find! We had to sit inside because it was raining, which was disappointing, but it was very lively and upbeat in the restaurant. We were seated just inside the door on the main floor, which I was a little nervous about since it was near the bar, but it ended up being a great dinner. The drinks were great, my husband had oysters and loved them. We shared the crispy rice with tune, mahi mahi tacos, Grace roll, and salmon with lobster mac and cheese. There was not one dish we had any complaints about. We received two glasses of champagne and a dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We loved everything, we just wish it was closer to Chicago!

    When we arrived, we told the hostess that we had a reservation for two. We waited another 30-40 minutes before they sat us down although we were punctual for our reservation. It didn't feel like too long of a wait because we enjoyed some delicious drinks by the bar. The bartender was really great and friendly. Once our table was ready, we were taken to the upstairs dining room (great decor and ambiance). Our server was really on her A game and it was fireworks after that. Everything we ordered was absolutely mouth watering, from the rock shrimp to the miniature tacos to the wagu beef cooked on a stone, they know their food. We had an amazing time. This place is not just Miami "see and be seen hype" but the real deal.
