A word from Catch Twenty Three - Tampa
Catch Twenty Three restaurant infuses its creativity with flavorful Latin and Caribbean influences served up in a casual, upscale setting. Island music is carried by cool breezes throughout the restaurant, recently renovated with a "Cuban Elegance" motif with a feel of a tropical resort dining room. Mouth watering aromas emanate from the pecan wood grill such as the Certified Fresh Seafood, Angus Beef or Cuban Style Baby Back Ribs.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I love this great neighborhood restaurant. The food is great and is always consistent. It's casual, but in an upscale way, with fabric napkins and table coverings. The specials, from Monday - Thursday give you a reason to dine there more than once a week. The menu is varied with choices to fit everyone's taste. The spin that they put in some foods is unexpected and absolutely delicious. For example, mussels with spinach, garlic, blue cheese and bacon is to die for!! You'll want extra rolls to dip in the sauce. Once you experience this wonderful restaurant, you'll be hooked."

  • "We were virtually ignored by our waiter. He took way too long to greet us. He never came back to check on us. We were desperate for drink refills. The entrée came out 2 minutes after our appetizers were delivered so we had to put them aside to get cold. We were never given any bread despite seeing it served to all the tables around us. Other servers seemed to be doing an adequate job so you might get lucky if you eat here. We weren't and despite liking the food we will not be coming back."

  • "We took my Mother in Law out for her Birthday. The food and service was wonderful. She really enjoyed it. I'm glad we went early tho because a band started playing just as we were finishing up dinner. Once the band started, it was hard to carry on a conversation. Will be going back with my husband soon."

  • "Based on the reviews from opentable this seemed like a good place to try for fish so that expectation only added to our disappointment with Catch Twenty Three. Maybe it was a bad night or the chefs forgot they were cooking fish instead of hamburgers (which it seemed everyone else was having) but the fish we had was overcooked in all cases. The service was good and attentive and the drinks fine. The not-fried chicken wings were not bad but we came for fish and in that aspect everything was a failure."

  • "Our experience was great. I had never been to this area and I really enjoyed the restaurant. There was a guy on a keyboard who was great and the outside area was great except for the flys which I guess can't be helped. My meal was excellent."

  • "My wife and I have been here a few times. We love their food, especially the seafood. Hard to believe in Florida it is hard to find a good seafood restaurant. The only down side to the place is the noise level. If you plan to go a peak dinner time hours, don't expect a romantic dinner. Looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Have been here a couple times over the years and the best I can say is that it's OK. When we got seated this time, we were attacked by flies. They were everywhere. On the break, drinks, and in my hair. They did accommodate our request to move and whereas the flies were better, we were still getting plenty of them. Hopefully that problem gets resolved. I will say the macadamia nut encrusted scallops were to die for, but I had to keep waving my hand to keep the flies off. I am sure I will be back in a few months with the hopes the insect problem is taken care of."

  • "Food and atmosphere were great. Service was slow, never was told of Mothers Day special dinner or other specials. After main course was finished dessert was never offered until we asked even though it was included with Mother's Day special. Drinks were never refilled. "

  • "This is one of the best restaurants in the Tampa area. You can go fancier. You can go pricier. But you won't get any better. The food preparation is and taste are exceptional. And try the Ginger Sweet Potato Salad!"

  • "Luckily we got there on ladies' night and the wine is divine, suggested by our server. We had a Groupon and had gnoshed our way through some appetizers, delightful, but still had some $$ left. The only other thing I have to say is "Macadamia Encrusted Chilean Sea Bass" WOW. I have been twice already and will be headed back soon. The entrance is a little crowded, lots of dodging at that juncture but it was fun to watch the people dance :-) Catch Twenty Three has become one of my favorite restaurants."

  • "Me and my girlfriend visited Catch Twenty Three on a Friday night date. The online reservation option worked well and they had a table for two waiting for us when we arrived. The ambiance is great live music played by a local artist who sang and played accompaniment to popular karaoke tunes. We ordered two appetizers with a pitcher of Sangria -- shredded pork and sweet plantains for the lady and I had the Ceviche with Coconut Milk and Ginger; both delicious. The portions were huge and my girlfriend was stuffed after finishing the shredded pork. I finished the meal with the Guava Salmon entree. Although the sangria was lacking, the meal was very tasty. Overall, good food, great atmosphere and friendly service made for a good night out."

  • "First time here and now living in Ga. I wanted to take my Mother out for a early Mother's day dinner I went on line and selected this restaurant. When back in the Tampa area I would visit again. A gem that does not get maybe alot of attention from vistors / traveler's but being familier with the Westchase area I wanted something different and I found it. Service, food , price and everything about it was a great evening with my 83 year old Mother."

  • "We have been to Catch 23 numerous times, never had a bad meal!! Food is always good! Service is always, spot on! Now, I do have to say, the Dolly mixed drink, was not worth the money! Next time I'll order, wine! Maybe, just a new bartender, not sure. "

  • "This is a hopping place on a Monday night. They have a special on their hamburgers which come with a side of fries. Absolutely delicious. Extra toppings available for a bit more. A great deal- don't expect it to be quiet. It seems as if the whole town knows about this great burger deal. Reservations recommended if you don't want to wait."

  • "This was a very good restaurant! The drinks were made perfectly and the menu is extensive. I will try something different next time, the macadamia nut crusted chicken was very good, though I didn't eat the mango chutney (allergies). My husband tried my chicken with the chutney and thought it was excellent."

  • "This place is a gem. We have been there a few times and each time, the food rewards the palate. If I had to choose two favorites, I would recommend the macadamia nut encrusted chicken or the scallops."

  • "This is consistently great! The food is delicious, fresh, inventive and healthy. The Chilean sea bass crusted with macadamia is unparalleled. The service is prompt, professional and curtious. The drinks are well made and balanced. Overall a fantastic experience, we look forward to going whenever we are in Westchase."

  • "Very enjoyable dinner. Outstanding grouper and steak Diane. I took two stars off service since the server disappeared after the "how is everything" check 1 minute after delivering the meal. Busy early on Saturday night (6:45) but still able to slip in with an OpenTable request a few minutes prior to arrival."

Catch 23 meets all our needs ! The service was outstanding. We made reservation and even though the restaurant was packed with out reservations we were seated right away . Great night out at Catch 23"

  • "I was visiting a friend in Tampa and had been to Catch 23 so was looking forward to a return meal there. It did not disappoint The Macadamia Encrusted Chilean Sea Bass is to die for. OK, I exaggerate, but it's darn good. Another in our group had the Rib Eye and was equally pleased. On a Friday it's crowded so prepare for a wit if you don't have reservations. Eating outside looked nice (we ate inside). Service was quite good. A definite West Chase eating must."

  • "The food was very good. Party of 4 all liked their food. The salad was BLAH. The service was barely average. The ambience was not what I was looking for. This place very loud and there were a lot of people there during a weekday dinner. I am guessing b/c the food WAS GOOD. I would not recommend this place for any type of 'special' evening or even a date. If you are looking for a good seafood plate and nothing else, this is the place for you. In regards to the chart above, 'energetic' is not a good description for Noise Level, It was loud not energetic. had out of town guests with me and the quality of the food is was completly saved my selection for dinner that night..."

  • "We had a reservation for 4 @ 7:45PM this past Fri. We drove an hour from Lakeland @ arrived. @ 7:30 planning to have a cocktail before dinner. The place was packed & the bar was shoulder to shoulder. The staff was stressed @ looked it. I checked in with the greeater q 15 min X 60 min & each time she asked for my name & party size. We were seated @ 8:45. Our waiter acted like he was running a 5K during his shift ; no table interaction lasted more than 8 seconds. He forgot one salad & checked on us once after we ordered. The food was fantastic. Just beware of the lack of service."
