    The service was great. The oyseters were amazing. Had really wanted Halibut but unfortuantely it ws out of season so the special was to be Mahi Mahi, a great substitute in our opinion, but then it was not available and they had substituted Sturgeon. We opted for the lobster which was lovely. The recommendation of the Kokomo Pinot Noir to accompany it was wonderful. Great evening, very enjyable experience.

    Very happy with dinner at Catch. Atmosphere was great and food was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly. Soup came in a very unique presentation. With some ingredient in bowl first and then the server came and poured the rest of soup out of a stemming hot kettle. We had the catch of the day, which was halibut and it was amazing. A little but pricey but was definitely worth it. My wife and I went there for her birthday celebration and I would go back again for a special occasion.

    I always love the Catch so decided to take a friend from out of town for Lunch. As always the setting and service were excellent and the Tiger Shrimp salad was tasty and fresh. Special requests were no problem, however I was completely taken back by the lach of selection in the salad for lunch selection. The only salads available were the Appetizer Ceaser and the Tiger Shrimp salad,which was extremely small and more like an appetizer than a main dish under which category it was found. The price was a main dish price but quantity was lacking. We had to ask for a bun to go with it. All in all an extremely high price tag for an appetizer size main dish.

  • Good, but not excellent
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/3/2014
    We were disappointed that several selections were not available that evening (lobster, tuna and one other fish was not available). From what isn't a large menu to begin with, we were limited in our choices. However, I recognize it isn't always easy to obtain fresh fish in Calgary. Having said that, the food I ordered was excellent (scallops and shrimp). My dining partner had the scallops as well, but had a caesar salad that she found tasty, but difficult to eat because of the large lettuce slices. "It shouldn't be this much work to eat a salad", were her words. I would think that having several flights of stairs to reach the washroom limits your customer base. I could never bring my elderly mother here for this very reason.

    I have been to the oyster bar at catch before and enjoyed myself. I wouldn't say catch was bad, but for the price it was very underwhelming. Both our meals were slightly over cooked. Service was fine but nothing spectacular. Left feeling rather in different.

    We reserved a table for dinner before the theatre. We enjoyed a shared appetizer, (the crab cake was delightful) followed by individual entrees. My Sable fish was very tasty, delicately prepared with a lovely sauce on the side. Vegetables were cooked but crisp and the portions were reasonable. My wife's catch of the day,(salmon with Morel mushrooms) was a treat for her that more than met her expectations. A shared dessert and we were ready for a walk to the theatre. We will return here again.

    I took a friend for lunch, it was her birthday. Our waiter did all within his power to make it a special event. He provided rare service, just top notch. Both of us have significant food allergies. The cook did a fantastic job of accommodating our food allergies without compromising taste. It was a lovely time.

    We decided to go for our anniversary and we were not disappointed! Beautiful atmosphere combined with perfect service, Catch made our evening memorable. The food was amazing! plated so elegantly and tasted amazing. We had an appetizer and a main course and we were not dissapointed. With room for dessert, we tried the taste of chocolate and paired it with a nice Americano! Delicious end to what was a perfect evening. Thank you Catch! We will see you soon and this time we will have to try the amazing oysters that we saw people enjoying at most of the tables around us!!

    Had a very nice lunch here. It was clearly a business crowd and we were quite casual, but the staff was no less amiable to us. We had some wonderful fish dishes perfectly prepared. along with a nice bottle of rose. Other then the winelist was a little short on moderately priced wines ( and only one rose offered), it was a very pleasant dining experience

    My hubby and I brought the MIL for lunch to Catch as she was in town visiting, we love Catch and wanted to share the experience with her. They have a new menu so tried the foie gras with grape jelly. One word - AMAZING!! I had the special which was halibut cheeks (who knew?). We also ordered the mussels and scallops, all in all we loved it and the biggest critic, my MIL - approved!

    We requested a quiet area for a group of 6 people for a business meeting and that is exactly what we got. They have a separate area near the wine cellar that was perfect. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Great wine list on an iPad and the appies would meet the expectations of any foodie. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a business meeting or any occasion.

    Starting from the seasonal 'Tomato Tasting', on to the 'Indian MMarinated Hallibut' through to a finish of 'Baileys Semi Freddo', this meal had us hook, line and sinker. Located in Calgary's premier hotel - The Hyatt, Catch has never failed to meet our high expectations. In fact, it tends to surpass! The tab for two with a bottle of wine and shared dessert was $200 including tip which seems quite in sync with other fine Calgary restaurants.

    The food here is always worth coming back to - I have never been disappointed. Fresh flavours and well orchestrated sides on the main plates, especially the catch of the day. The service is excellent. I like Catch Upstairs for business lunch, there is more room between the tables than the downstairs Oyster bar, and the sunlight coming in through the upper floor windows is a plus.

    Had the tuna appetizer, was pretty bland, needed a sauce. Got the scallops (without beef tongue) they were cooked perfectly but it needed more vegetables or more of a side dish especially for the price. My husband and I both said we wouldn't go back but glad we tried. Friends with us enjoyed their fish.

    Catch has never disappointed. We hadn't been there for about 3 years, and it had changed quite a bit décor-wise. Very nice update. Menu was superb and made it hard to decide what to order. However, our server was very helpful with that. We both had the Naked Lobster and it was such a fabulous blend of flavours. It was a wonderful evening. Pricey, but we knew that going in.

    We had a very good experience at Catch Upstairs for dinner on a Tues night. We started with a dozen oysters and the waiter suggested a selection of 3 different types and then explained where each was from and their characteristics once the plate arrived. All were excellent! We then shared a pasta appetizer which was cooked perfectly and had fresh garden peas as part of the topping. Delicious. Mains of fish (I had the special, my husband had the snapper) both well prepared and cooked perfectly. Nice sized portions too - not too big but more than enough. We were persuaded to have dessert as we saw another table sharing the creme brûlée so had to have it. Very tasty and a good size for sharing. We'll be back!

    An excellent dining experience. My boyfriend and I started the evening with Negroni cocktails, a dozen oysters (the orange and champagne mignonette was divine) and crab cakes, all of which were wonderfully prepared and beautifully presented. For our entree, we both ordered the naked lobster which was also superb. We also ordered the Crémant d’Alsace which was the perfect accompaniment for the lobster. The decor was elegant and the service impeccable. We would not hesitate to return.
