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
  • "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."

  • "Stuffed shrimp was a masterpiece. Attentive server. Tip: don't pay to valet park. Lots of free parking within a block."

  • "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 was our second visit to Catch 23, following a very good prior experience. Our party of 4 enjoyed decent service and the entrees were all quite tasty. Westchase is fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "A group of 5 of us ladies at 40 for Mommy's night out which is only once a quarter we look to spend the evening at a classy place with great drinks and great food in a vibrate atmosphere. 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"

  • "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."

  • "Had wanted to try Catch 23 for quite a while, based on reviews here so made a reservation for Valentine's Day. Food & service were A+; our server gave excellent recommendations every time we asked. Even though the place was crowded, service was very well timed throughout. Only problem for us was the noise level. We had to speak loudly to hear each other so it was not the best ambiance for a Valentine's Day dinner. Will definitely go back for the food, & maybe try outside dining next time...maybe that will be quieter than dining inside."

  • "WE HAVE BEEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES AND ALL IN ALL THE EXPERIENCES HAVE BEEN GREAT. WE DINED ON THE 13TH AND MADE A RESERVATION FOR 6 PPL AT 730. SADLY WE DID NOT GET SEATED UNTIL AFTER 8PM. FORTUNATELY, PART OF OUR PARTY WAS LATE SO IT WORKED OUT."

  • "Overall my food was good but not great. I ordered the grilled Mahi which would have been a lot better if they didn't smother it with butter/sauce. It was a little too wet and the sauce overpowered the fish. My wife ordered a chicken dish and she really liked it. We would go back I would just make sure they go lite on the sauce...The service was great and next time I'd like to sit on the patio."

  • "We tried it after being recommended by some friends and we were extremely surprised. The atmosphere was very friendly, yet quite quaint. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about all the foods. The wine list was moderate but the wines were quite good. The food was exceptional and we were very pleased with both the taste and the portions. We will now be regular customers!!!"

  • "Our server was friendly, the food was awesome. I love the decor, low lighting and that you can be a romantic couple sitting in a corner or a family w/kids enjoying a night out. The noise level made it a little difficult to hear each other across the table and even with reservations we still had a bit of a wait, but overall we were very satisfied and will definitely return"

  • "Great location in Westchase. The food was amazing! I had the macadamia encrusted chilean sea bass and my husband had the surf & turf filet with twin lobster tails. The macadamia crust with the citrus buerre blanc sauce and mango salsa added so much more flavor to the sea bass without making it feel like a heavy meal. The filet was good quality and the reduction sauce that came with it was a perfect match. The food quantity was certainly not lacking, so bring a good appetite. We sat at a booth by the bar so it was probably a little louder than the restaurant side, but not so loud that we couldn't carry on a conversation. Definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area."

I had the scallops which were grilled to perfection and he had the stuffed grouper which was incredible! We enjoyed our waitress the most who was friendly and when we asked her to recommend something she did it without hesitation! I hate going to places where the staff have no idea what is on the menu!"

  • "Great local restaurant with reliable fresh seafood, great service, and small but good wine list. We were a party of five, with three generations ranging in age from 24-82. My parent's favorite waiter, Will, looked after us. My Dad, an esophageal cancer survivor, has dietary restrictions and a very soft voice. Will looks after him and makes what could be an uncomfortable situation, a happy one. The GM (or could be the owner) also stops by and says hi to my parents and sister (she's also a regular there). Every foodie needs a restaurant like Catch 23 in their lives."
