  • "From appetizer to dessert, amazing food. My tuna was perfectly seared. Practically melted in my mouth. Server was professional and knowledgeable without being intrusive. Great experience."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food quality was excellent and the feature appetizer was fantastic several other tables ordered and reordered more the Tempura Shrimp. The Clam and Mussel pot was fresh and full of flavour. Seemed like everything on the menu would be a great choice. The fresh oyster bar looked amazing but will have to make that the second trip!!"

  • "Came here for a birthday dinner with my girlfriend. This place was recommended to me by a friend and did not disappoint. Great for an upscale seafood meal. Highly recommended. Service was excellent. We shared the crab cake (absolutely worth getting!) and my Arctic Char was great with its butternut squash. My girlfriend enjoyed the Bass."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The small seafood tower was shared by everyone at the table and offered a variety of chilled shellfish (lobster, crabs legs, mussels, oysters, clams.... Delicious. The naked lobster main course made the meal though. Pricy but well worth the treat. A sufficient amount of perfectly cooked lobster - and no shell to deal with! Served with the tastiest sweet corn (flavored with tarragon) I have ever eaten and a very interesting fennel tart tatin. Delicious. The creme brûlée and the chocolate pistachio and apricot composition finished the meal perfectly. Great service from Glen."

  • "I've lived in Nova Scotia and I went to school in Vancouver, so I am pernickety when it comes to seafood. The Catch doesn't disappoint: for quality and freshness they are one of Calgary's best and I have always had great food there - even their lamb is very good if there is a non-seafood lover in the group. The raw oysters were fresh, not too large, and the sauces well paired. The service was quick and courteous; the Catch remains one of my favourite spots to dine well."

  • "Catch came highly recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. We went there to celebrate a birthday and we got top-notch service and food. The staff went out of their way to make the evening special for us. The food was meticulously prepared so that the tastes and textures complement each other perfectly."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Catch celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We had the crab cake and humpback shrimp appetizers and my wife really enjoyed the naked lobster while I had the daily special of sturgeon. The service provided by our waiter Glenn was exceptional. Glenn was very friendly but not too instrusive and seemed to know exactly what we wanted to make our first experience at the Catch the best ever. "

  • "Our food was fantastic and the waiter was great. He was very friendly and accommodating. The prices are quite high for everyday dinning but great for really special occasions. The restaurant itself was beautiful but you either had to walk 3 flights of stairs down or 4 flights up for a washroom."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "My wife and I had the naked lobster, which is pre shelled whole lobster. Just claws and tail though. I found the presentation visually pleasing, but the lobster wasn't cooked as I prefer lobster. This lobster was much like a poached egg, the meat was tender but the texture more like raw oysters and a bit watery. I'm guessing the lobster was partially cooked ahead of time and then quickly heated in boiling water before serving. This was my first visit to this restaurant, so I will not write it off my list of downtown dinner spots. Next time, no Lobster. Free Parking is a plus!"

  • "Honestly we avoided Catch for a while, remembering it as expensive. It is... but not as outrageous as remembered... the food was excellent... service great... we were early in the evening so the empty restaurant may have contributed to the timely and attentive service."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Over priced for the quality of the food !The food was very blan , the portions were a great size, survice was comparable to a moxies ect . I would not go back."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "My favourite was the tomato appetizer; I forget what they called it, but it was tomatoes done 5 ways as an appetizer and it was incredible. :o)"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Interesting menu, fish was excellent, some of the sides were just ok. Appetizer partly frozen. For the price, it was not what was expected. Waiters were very attentive. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Once again it was a delight to dine with clients at the Catch. The kitchen brought their A game and the flavours showed that. The service was warm and inviting and our special request was handled graciously. The excellent wine selection took things to a high point as everyone enjoyed a memorable meal. We were all impressed. I'll be back!"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We went on a Saturday evening. Our table was ready but a more desirable was a few minutes away so they asked us to wait but served us complimentary champaigne. Dinner was great starting with the oysters followed by the lobster. Since we are not big desert eaters, we didn't bother ordering any, but before the bill came we were served up with small piece of cake just to top it off. We'll definitely be going back,"

  • "Came to Catch for great seafood and it did didn't disappoint. Fantastic seafood tower as appetiser with two types of oysters, snow crab legs, half lobster, mussels, clams and shrimps. All delicious - a lot of seafood. Would definatley recommend this dish. I would suggest to Catch that they provide a finger bowl because your hands get very sticky - we had to go to the washrooms to clean up. We both had the Atlantic black bass for our mains as recommended by our server. The fish was cooked and seasoned perfectly - delicious yet again. And finally dessert - hazelnut Creme brûlée and crispy chocolate mousse. Yum! Overall a great experience and would definatley return."

  • "Food was not served hot (i.e. was lukewarm), salmon smelled and tasted fishy, shrimp in ceviche dish were tiny, limp and scarce, waitress interrupted conversations at our table 2 or 3 times without even saying excuse me first. My wife and I had been to Catch around 5 years ago and it was fabulous then. Now, what a disaster."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."
