Diner Reviews
  • "Note, the clam chowder we ordered was too salty. Our server could have been a little more attentative. Request for some condiments came almost when all the food was consumed."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The Oyster Bar lives up to its name with varieties fresh from both coasts. All were excellent - a real taste of the sea. We also had the mussels which were plentiful and well cooked. The sauce was not as flavourful as we would have liked but was more enjoyable with chunks of fresh bread dipped into it. The clam chowder had just the right creaminess but needed more clams and vegetables and it was missing a certain depth of clam flavour that we expected to find. We also split an order of fish & chips. Tasty, but not outstanding. We were at this restaurant for our 20th anniversary dinner looking for an exceptional seafood experience. While the overall experience was good, for the price of the food we would not rush back except for the oysters."

  • "The food is amazing. Best seafood!!the first time we went we ate upstairs which has a more intimate vibe. Great for dates. Downstairs has more of a easy going feel. Great to take friends to enjoy some drinks and great good:)"

  • "Enjoyed showing off our fair city to a special visitor. Lunch at the Catch was an obvious choice...and didn't disappoint!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I ordered fish and chips, but was not too impressed. They were average. Would have expected them tastier coming from this restaurant. Oysters are awesome. My husband enjoyed his walleye fish. Overall good."

  • "This is always a favorite of mine. Never get tired of this place. I love watching the chefs prepare our meals. Friendly staff. Great location, espcially in the summer when the patio is open. "

  • "Usually Catch is a treat so I booked a casual birthday gathering but we were quite dissapointed. The waiter was very nice and certainly game but clearly had no experience as we had room tempature prosecco and a few dropped plates. The food was not up to the normal standard, the fish and chips had a very heavy batter and the halibut was over cooked, mussels were good but were not served with anything to sop up the sauce. I'm not sure if we did not have our normal Catch experience because it was a Monday but I sure hope they can get their mojo back!"

  • "Went for the tempura prawn special. They were cooked some time prior and were not fresh. Also ordered a caesar salad that was warm and wilted. Disappointing. "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The Catch has gone down hill - too much is 'deep fried'. My husband's portion of halibut was SO small yet pricey? He told the waitress & said he would try it - She 'never' came back to ask? My Salmon was good but appeared to have seen some deep frying? We had a nice booth but it was under the speaker & the music was too loud & asked to be moved to the 'empty' booth in front or behind us -- but told 'oh, we will just turn down the music' -- which lasted but 20 min and the volume was pushed back up? very disappointed."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Catch has the best seafood in Calgary. Whenever I am in the mood for seafood this is where I come and I am never disappointed. They also have an impressive wine list."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Average food and not worth the money. Catch of the day artic char served with lentils super dry and tasteless. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "The oysters, clams and mussels were excellent and fresh. I had the mixed Provencale cocotte which was very good. The thing that brings the food rating down a bit is the ceasar salad; it was only ordinary and the dressing lacked in taste. The service was great and I look forward to returning to Catch--when I can afford it as it is expensive. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I love fresh Oysters! It's nice to see that they bring in fresh seafood daily i'm originally from the coast and miss the abundance of seafood. Dining in the Oyster Bar is like being at home again."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Thanks so much for the lovely evening! Our dinner was delayed due to a large group and it wasn't a problem, but the staff came over with an apology for the wait and crab cakes on the house! Nice touch! Our only complaint would have been that the veggie selection of mostly lentils could have been improved. Just some steamed fresh veggies with our fish would have been better. See you again!"

  • "Booked here on a whim before going to a concert. Thought we'd booked upstairs but actually so glad we were downstairs. Much nicer atmosphere and the food was absolutely superb. Best food we've had in Calgary...and we've tried most of the supposedly "fine dining" venues. In particular, my starter (Scallops) and my wfe's main (Swordfish) were exquisite. In fact, the swordfish was the best either of us had ever tasted (and that's coming from two marine biologists!). Our server was exceptional...perfect mix of attentiveness without imposing. We had a small selection of oysters too, which were also excellent. We will certainly be back...so may items that we'd still like to try and the "special" nights look like great value. "

  • "The food was absolutely amazing, the restaurant has a nice lay out, and the service was great. It is a louder place, not great an intimate date."
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "Very friendly and helpfull staff. Food was ok. I ordered the shrimp starter but didnt know they would come cold on ice! Takes away a lot of the flavour. A lot of the mussels were still closed when the pot came. In my country that means they are not fully coocked or should not be eaten."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Great sea food and my first time to visit Catch. Was recommended by my Uncle and I will certainly return. My girl friend LOVED IT too and she is something of a sea food fanatic! "

  • "First time to Catch Oyster Bar. Appetizers, drinks and main meal were all excellent. Service was quick and efficient, meals were cook just right. Pricing was as expected for a better than "bar" type food."

  • "The food was beautifully presented, tasty, and unique. Flavours were unexpected, but as it turned out....expertly paired. Thank you all for a marvelous dining experience!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "A delicious evening meal before heading to the CPO. "Started" the meal with a combination of Atlantic and Pacific raw oysters, followed by scallops finished to perfection. Both were accompanied by a glass of grumpy bear beer, which was the excellent suggestion of our waiter. My husband and I split two very different entries - the swordfish (the best I've ever had) and the curry bowl (lots of seafood and a wonderfully balanced broth). The meal was finished off with a peach crumble and lemon ice cream, which was the perfect size for sharing and not feeling like you "shouldn't have". The service was excellent and at a great pace - we weren't left waiting nor did we feel rushed. A great way to start the evening before strolling over to CPO!"

  • "Shared the seafood tower with my husband. WOW! It was amazing and the seafood was so fresh. It is great also to know that all of the seafood they serve is Oceanwise approved so not harming the enviroment with over fishing."
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Never disappointed with the chilled seafood platter. Except there could be more oysters. Disappointed with the 5ounce wine glass but maybe that is standard there. 7ounces min. In my opinion. Waitress really nice, surrounded by several cocky businessmen that thought they were the centre of the universe....annoying but humorous."

  • "Hello, Food was great, some notes though. The french onion soup didn't have much broth, but lots of onion. The fish and chips was delicious, however, I found quite salty. Service was lovely, manager stopped by to say hello, always a nice touch. Desert was great, all in all - solid consistent performance by the Catch team. keep it up"

  • "I heard Catch had a new menu and I always love the food so I was excited to try it. To start I had the Tuna Tartar and it was amazing It was served with a yummy sauce and spooned onto Terra Root chips. I would highly recommend this dish!! For our main we shared the Fried Chicken. I was intrigued by the twist on classic comfort food & it did not disappoint! It was slightly smoked and had the most amazing skin coating. I also appreciated that the chicken wasn't overly greasy. It was served with an awesome sausage gravy and came on a bed of fries. I will definitely be back soon with a difficult decision... Do I have the same dishes again because they were to die for or should I try something new on this amazing new menu."

  • "We dined on one of the Seafood Towers offered by the restaurant and it was terrific. Our waitress (Annabelle) was super helpful with a wine pairing for the offering and even splitting other appetizers for us to enjoy in single serving mode. We were a little rushed to complete dinner to get to a 'show' and every effort was made by the 'Catch Crew' to ensure we were able to make the show on time. Everyone was vibrant and dynamic. A terrific pre-event stop that started a wonderful evening, for sure! Thanks to all at 'Catch Oyster Bar'!!!!"
