    Food was delicious. We'll definitely return. Loved the crispy rice with spicy tuna. If you're up for it, the whole fish dish is phenomenal. It's definitely a share dish.

    First time to meat packing district and we were dropped off by cab and was pointed to a sketchy front door. We entered this door into an indoor alley to an elevator and went to the second floor and What a pleasant surprise when the elevator doors opened to a what we thought was a great atmosphere. The bar area was excellent and the staff treated us very well. Had drinks and appetizer at the bar. We then had dinner on the 3rd floor balcony that was heated and was very romantic. What a great experience and free champagne for our anniversary Perfect Michael

    I've been here a few times and had an nice time but this past dinner definitely fell short. To start it was just insanely loud, not their fault of course that half the room felt the need to scream at each other so everyone could hear what they were speaking about. But the food was also just mediocre at best. My friend had the snapper which was a bit bland and I had the chicken and it was so dry I didn't eat it. I'm sure I'll still swing through here again so I'm hoping it'll be better next time around. I would also add that I've had the snapper in the past and it was much better.

  • Too many good restaurants to receive such attitude
    NoCatchForMeVIP

    Our party was not allowed to be seated until our party was complete. We had an early 6 PM reservation. 5 out of 7 of us were there and the hostess just refused to seat us. "its our policy" Well, maybe the policy should be questioned. The restaurant at 6 PM was completely empty and the only people there was us. All though everything related to food was good to average, the front end of the restaurant and policy stays with you and effects the whole experience. So many excellent restaurants in NYC that are appreciative of you being there and treat you well. Who needs arrogance and attitude to take my money.

    Catch is more about dressing up the fish than the fish itself. There is a lot of fun around the dishes and it is a fun place to go but everything about it is cursory. I walked out having enjoyed my time but knowing that I wouldn't go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    So so experience on Saturday night, service lacked some finesse and attention to detail. We had sushi tray to share as a starter, as my girlfriend lifted the last piece with her chop sticks her plate was swiped from under her noise as she was about to put the sushi in her mouth. Then we were charged for two bottles of wine even though we only ordered one. Not certain if I got back.

    Great atmosphere, but service was awful. Unpleasant waiter. I order a steak medium cooked. It take so long to be ready and I was starving. The steak was very well done and far away to be soft and tasty. But I wasn't willing to wait for a replacement.

    Nothing in the menu disappointed us. A couple on a date and we order 10 small plates, cocktails and the best dessert I've had. Standouts: Salmon carpaccio, Catch Roll, Hamachi Tartare, and the DBB cocktail. And if you go for one thing, go for the 3 chocolate ice cream/cake/melt thing.

    Had high hopes but they were quickly quashed by the long wait for our table (had reservations for 8:30 but didn't get seated until 9:45). The service was mediocre - the waiter was not very attentive and seemed to be very distracted and avoided eye contact. They were out of many of the main entrees and what we had wasn't all that great...good but not worth the price.

    On recommendation I booked a table for three people at catch for 8pm. Upon arriving we were asked to wait at the bar and told that someone would collect us shortly. We were eventually shown to our table 45 minutes later. We placed our order, although one of our party had to change her choice dish 3 times as the restaurant had run out of several dishes on the menu. We were eventually served just past 9pm Over an hour after we'd booked the table for. The food itself was good, although the side vegetables arrived luke warm. The noise level in the restaurant was loud meaning we had to really raise our voices to have a conversation. Overall very dissapointing for the price. For the price charged there are far better restaurants out there!

    Catch was the perfect spot to celebrate a birthday. The cocktails were all interesting and tasted wonderful, but the food was absolutely to die for. The Hellfire roll was unbelievable, as was the Lobster Mac, Scallop Gnocchi and Mussels. Service was great, no complaints. Loved this entire meal / dining experience!

    We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time. The hostess was borderline friendly, and told us to wait in the bar (half the tables were empty). We were repeatedly referred to as"guys", our foursome consisted of two couples in their early 60's. The food was very well prepared, and delicious. The music playing in the dining room was so loud we were unable to carry on a conversation. Perhaps Catch is trying to discourage diners over the age of 35. Pity.

    This place could have cared less if we were there or not b/c they would fill the table. When you are a popular restaurant I get it, but would also say it will keep me from ever returning. Our server was rude and annoyed we were not ready to order immediately, we still were waiting for drinks. He questioned the number appetizers we ordered and tried to upsell us on everything. ie.. I think you really need 2 or 3 of these. After the appetizers, it was 40 mins and our entree's were still not out. We had been there for 2+ hours. The manager came around to apologize but b/c we had to be somewhere we cancelled them b/c he still couldn't confirm when they would arrive. Then the bill took another 20 minutes to come after that.

    Catch has a fund and energetic feel, even though it was mostly empty when we arrived, we had a drink at the bar before being seated. They took us to the 3rd floor which was completely empty except one other group of people, as I was on a date I was surpised they seated us directly beside the loud tourist group, when I asked if we could have any other table(mind you the restaurant was empty) they told me that would be impossible, I was infuriated, also the waiter was hovering, but the girl at the bar made excellent drinks and the seafood was fresh, music was a plus too.

    We had a very disappointing experience at Catch. Though we had a reservation and the restaurant was virtually empty it took over 20 minutes to seat us and we had to ask again and again to be seated. Then the music was so loud you could hardly talk. On top of that, the restaurant was empty yet they put 2 people right next to us. These people asked to swap but the restaurant wouldn't. Very, very poor service from all, including management!
