Diner Reviews
  • "The Prawns were delish and my friend loved her Halibut."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "What an excellent little find! Buried Treasure! We totally enjoyed the ambience. We snuck in the back door and - having made reservations - were shown to our 'booth' right away. Greeted right away by our waiter, and were presented with a glass of champagne and a smile with well wishes to mark the celebration. We felt very special. The manager also came to our table and wished us well, and made suggestions for our entrees. I am gluten free, and the menu was outstanding, with the chef being most amenable to making some substitutions. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, our waiter Dean was very attentive. We both left with a feeling of having had a special evening indeed."

  • "Good food but not amazing. Waited a long time for the meal to come out even though we were in before the rush."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "My tenderloin from the beef duo was perfect but the short rib was dry. I've had better short ribs at the Cactus Club. My husbands article char was also over done. Service was excellent, however."

  • "The whole meal was amazing, the appetizers, main course, wine, dessert.....do I need to say more.... Yes, go downtown and have an amazing meal at 'The Catch' worth every penny....Enjoy!"

  • "It has been a number of years since dining at the Catch. We were impressed with the menu and especially the service. We will come again..."

  • "I have to say that waiter Glen makes your dinning experience above all expectations Food was superb and Glens choice of wine was perfect Beter service can not be found anywhere"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Seafood is the source of course, but the chef and his staff truly knows their way around a kitchen. Sourced with various culinary delicacies, Catch is a true gem."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Catch for their "big taste" menu this past weekend. Not only was the food really top notch, but the service was impeccable. Because of food intolerance, we had some difficulty with a couple of dishes on the menu. Rather than simply saying we couldn't have that menu (which has occasionally been the cast at other establishments), the wait staff and kitchen were incredibly accommodating in making substitutions for us. As a result we had a wonderful experience, and a terrific dinner. Add the lovely ambiance of the space in this sandstone heritage building, and you have a must-do dining experience! Highly recommended."

  • "Recently moved to Calgary and haven't fancied the food yet (wasn't a fan of Catch, Blink, Una, which I know are three big favourites here). Though the scallop soup was fantastic, the cod and casouellete lacked flavour. The duck ravioli, which was introduced as the restaurant's best appetizer, was okay. Great service and atmosphere, but not the burst of complex flavours I enjoy."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "My husband and I had a very nice dining experience at Catch for the Big Taste; the five courses were a soba noodle salad- nice fresh taste, celeriac chowder- exquisitely smooth and lovely, braised duck ravioli- different but good, ling cod with herbs on cassoulet- very nicely done, and dessert which included brownie cakes and brown sugar ice cream- to die for!! Our servers were spot on...thank you Catch!"

  • "Great Food! great romantic atmosphere, highly recommended"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Food was fantastic, service was awesome. Great wine. Seafood was fresh and flavourful, desserts were creative and delicious. Portions were civilized for an elegant meal. You can have an appetizer, main & dessert, and still be comfortable. We were a group of 4, celebrating a birthday. Highly recommend Catch for seafood lovers and those celebrating special occasions."

  • "Great service, amazing food, great decor, I'll definitely be back!"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "This was our first time at Catch Upstairs after hearing about the restaurant from many of our friends. We were very pleased with the decor of the dining area and even more so with the private four table room away from the main seating which made the experience even more intimate. The "wall of wines" gave the area a special feel. The preparation and plating of our meals were done to perfection. Portion size was perfect, not so much that we left full and not to small that left us wanting more. We each tried different seafood dishes and thought the flavours were perfect with both. Service was excellent. The young lady who took care of us could not have been better. Will definitely be back and ask for her again."

  • "We were one of the lucky ones who managed to score a reservation at Catch for Valentine's Day - and what a wonderful evening we had! The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding! Oysters to start (of course), my wife had the scallop dish, and I had the butter poached lobster. While Valentine's day is notoriously a busy night for restauranteurs we felt the timing of our food, and the demeanor of the staff to both be perfect. Thank you!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The quality of food does not match price! One medium sized crab cake for $18, that's outrageous! Will not be going back. Not enough variety on menu."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Went out for Valentines day dinner with my wife and we love seafood, this was the first time we went there and had an overall awesome experience. The only thing that went a bit off during the night was that they brought my wife's dinner plate with a bit too much salt, but replaced it right away upon us mentioning that to the waiter and the dish was great after!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "One of the, if not, best seafood restaurants in Calgary"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We have been to the Catch Upstairs many times and have been very satisfied with the food. We were a bit disappointed this time. I ordered the octopus for appetizer and the Sable fish for main. The octopus was too salty. The Sable fish was great but the vegetables that accompanied the fish was also too salty. I let the waiter know about the octopus and he was very kind to take it off the bill. We had a great evening though."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great place, great service! We had a great meal there and the staff were super helpful and friendly."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great dinner with my wife. The seafood tower was awesome as were all the extra oysters we ordered ! BUT you cannot have a wine list and not have the wine that's on it AND THEN try to pass off a different bottle of wine as the same when it isn't. Perhaps people do t check the wine they but at a restaurant but I'm glad I do. Other than the "attempted wine fraud" we had a great night."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Been to Catch multiple times with clients. Food is fantastic, good ambience. Clients always have a good experience when I take them to Catch."
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "Our food was quite good, the appetizers were the best (the octopus was good, but too salty). Our dinner took a long time to come out, and when it did they were both warm, not hot. When done our dinner, it took almost 10 mins for our plates to be cleared. It was good food, but for the price, we had higher expectations for overall quality."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This used to be my favourite restaurant in town. Somehow they revamped their menu trying to do something more trendy? Well, I found it terrible. Especially the delicious buttered poached lobster...the flavour of it destroyed by fried big onion rings??? And worse than that: the delicacy of such a plate overwhelmed by a slice of greasy oily bread dipped in a tomato sauce that reminded me of the worst "marinara" sauce you get in cheap pizzas...for the rest of the night I had that bad taste in my mouth instead of the lobster....and I just had a tiny bite of it to see what was it like. Very bad. Go back to the original preparation guys. Seriously. Good wine list. Good service."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Service was very professional. Main course entrees were much too salty in 2 out of 3. Unpalatable sauces."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "The service was excellent and the food was very good. We very much enjoyed our dining experience and would recommend to our friends."
    Dined on 1/28/2014

    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "We booked at Catch for my birthday after hearing great things about the food and service it was just as promised! Once shown to our beautiful table our friendly french waiter (Yves I think...) arrived to tell us the featured dish and look after our every need. The feature sounded so mouthwatering but tasted better! My partner had the Ling Cod which was also out of this world. Yves wine knowledge was excellent and helped us pick a great match to our dishes. Romantic but never stuffy i would highly recommend Catch!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Great night! Great service! Great food! Having grown up by the coast I was worried about not getting my seafood fix after moving to Calgary thanks to discovering Catch I will worry no more! The Scallop dish we shared to start was so fresh and delicate and beautifully presented. The butter poached lobster was divine as entree, so fresh I felt like I was at the coast again! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable Irish man who's wine suggestions were informative but never intrusive. We will be back very soon!"
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "Had a surprise birthday lunch, and one our dishes was came out far too salty. Great staff solved the issue promptly and replaced it with a new order for us. Very friendly and super courteous servers."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We have never had a bad experience at Catch. What a wonderful restaurant. Thank you to all of you who make something as simple as dinner, turn into a wonderful experience. The food is to die for!"

  • "The food was great, the service was better. We have a lovely evening and look forward to coming back."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "It's been awhile since I have been to Catch at all and never for lunch. Had the seared scallops for lunch, they were perfectly cooked and loved the flavor. I'll certainly be back again soon for lunch."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "Despite the great wine list, this "upscale seafood restaurant" under-delivered in quality, service and value for money. The oysters were the redeeming feature of the seafood tower. However, the crustaceans had the texture and flavour of thawed seafood. The dining table in the booth was 4 inches too high to be comfortable and the bench was saggy and worn out. This restaurant needs a gross makeover. As a native Calgarian, dining with a friend from Australia, the experience was an embarrassment."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I took my team for our annual Christmas lunch last week...it was our 6th year in a row! As always, the service was fabulous, food spectacular and wine was amazing! Our Waiter surprised us with a lovely desert to top off our lunch! We will certainly be back!!! Highly recommend!!!"

  • "Catch upstairs was one of my favoriate resturants in calgary 3 years ago. Everything changed when I went back to this resturant 2 days ago from decor to food and I am sorry to say this, but Catch upstairs has really went down hill. I would not come back again. Nothing too outstanding about the food and decor, definitly not worth the price."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Our dinner with friends at Catch was excellent. The food was terrific - they really know how to cook fish here! Also, we were going to an event following dinner and our server was great about keeping us on time. Really appreciated it! We'll be back!"
