    My husband and I dined at Catch for our anniversary dinner. The sushi was amazing. There was a mix up and our appetizer was forgotten, but our server and the manager made sure to still have it come out, he said better late then never, right? They took it off the bill & then gave us a complimentary dessert also. They went above and beyond. Would return and recommend again!

    No point of making reservations at this establishment since they don't honor the reservation time anyways. After I harassed one of the five hostesses an hour later, I was told ohh your table just popped up. Gee, how courteous. The food was ok, it used to be much better. Our waitress Carly came up to our table after appetizers and asked me if there was anything else we wanted or the check, I kindly told her the entrees would be nice at which point she ran off and we waited another 20 minutes for the entrees to arrive. We used to love coming to this place and haven't been there in a while, a lot has changed. Never again. I have reservations to STK next weekend, hope the mgmt didn't screw this one up as well.

    I would give the service 0 stars. Not only did I slip and fall on a soaked floor - the waitress handed us a bill with 3x items we didn't order (cheating or carelessness?). The hostess who helped me up after I fell was more attentive than server - who was so overwhelmed and distracted (bus boys were more alert). Server was MIA for the meal, meaning our drink order essentially came AFTER our food. I had an unsatisfactory experience here ~6 mos ago, but the food was great and knew my guest would appreciate it. Hoped the service issues were resolved, but clearly still a disaster. Watch for the wet floors - I wiped out and have bruises on my knees. Also unwilling to open a window (yet they had made me sit by an open window in March!). Nonsense.

    Nothing it appears. We had reservations for 10:15p and did not get seated until 11:10p, 55 minutes later! Very frustrating to have to be on time for the reservation but getting seated FOR that reservation is another story! They called, I confirmed and still...55 minutes?! Ridiculous. Once we sat down, the food was very tasty, the wine was great and of course my company was amazing! I'd go again but maybe a different night as it was jam-packed Friday.

    The waiter Friday night at the rooftop was TERRIBLE. After ordering a round of drinks, we received 3 of 4 after waiting 15 minutes. After we complained when another 10 minutes went by, the waiter told us he was doing us a "favor" by getting some of the ingredients for the drink that were located downstairs. He then told us if we don't want to wait he will give us the check and we can leave. The manager was very helpful however wverall this was the worst service I have had at a restaurant.

    I am still dreaming about some of the food I ate at Catch. OMG Yumm is the only way I can describe how delicious the food was. Their cocktails are delicious. The lobster mac-n-cheese and lobster mash is divine! The snapper is incredible. The desserts are out of this world. The service was good as well. Ambiance beautiful. I absolutely love Catch and told all my friends about it. I plan on going back, need more of the heavenly lobster mash.

    Never got to eat! Made a 9:00pm reservation and checked in at 8:45. Sat at the bar till 9:20 when I went back to see if the table would be ready a different hostess told me that my reservation was canceled but she saw I had checked in! When I began to say how is that possible she put her hand in my face and told me to wait while she saw what happened. I wasn't having that! I spoke to a manager and he offered me a drink which I refused and left! The hostess acted like catch was the only Restaraunt in NYC, well I love here and it's not! Went down the block and had sat right down and had a good meal. Mistakes happen I understand that but treat customers with respect. You're not selling a cure for cancer it's just food!!

    The food was rich but delish, a mix of cold standard seafood and hot rich dishes including lobster spaghetti. Price was average to a bit expensive for what you get. The service at the front counter was very average! We had a booking for 845, got there 830 and they said it will be a few minutes to wait near the ( very packed bar). Since it was only going to be a few minutes we thought we'd better not get a drink, plus since it was so packed wasn't sure how'd they find us if we didn't hang near the from. Nearly 45 minutes later and 3 times going to the front desk and told it would be a few minutes we were finally seated with at least. 6 free tables in sight!!!

    thelilpastrychef
    Dined on 9/22/2014
    Food was good but we felt extremely rushed. The first 2 appetizers came out less than 5 minutes after ordering and even before the bread arrived. The third came out shortly after. I mean, on the one hand no one wants to wait half an hour for their food to arrive, but less than 5 mins for hot food? How long ago was that food made, sitting there under heat lamps? Pacing felt like a fast food joint instead of a nice restaurant. Also, the music was rather loud and tables close together - hard to have a conversation. Our waiter was very nice. We were given packs of salt water taffy with our check as a promo for their new lunch hours. I don't usually like salt water taffy but these were good.

    I heard so many great things about this place so I am not sure if that was why I was extremely disappointed. The food was good. I have had better and worse. The service was subpar. A lot of mistakes and overall bad attitude. If you want to go to a place to hang out it's not bad. If I was asked to go back I would but if the choice was mine I would suggest another location. So many better places in that area.

    With a booking at 18:30 we were seated right away. Food delish and we were satisfied with everything we choose. Cocktails were well made as. Disappointed in the change of waiter. We had three over the course of the evening and the last two weren't attentive. Too much going on as the place gets very busy and super noisy. One random observation...hostesses are way too thin, they need a meal or two.

    Top chef in a top Manhattan neighborhood, how can you go wrong. Interesting menu of seafood kept our party of 6 busy for a good while. The rolls were fine but stick with the stuff like the mahi tacos and lobster rolls, both excellent. The seafood tower was fresh and the oysters nice and briney. Highlight I think was the Cantonese lobster, really great. The chocolate sphere for dessert was a perfect ending....

    It was my first time to catch and loved it. I love fine dining, and i found catch to be one of the top places id recommend. The service was great. I never go to a place for the first time and order, i always rely on the waiter to recommend the best plates, and that he did. i was very impressed. Also, i love my wine! I especially love Sav blanc from the Marlborough region of NZ. Being Australian, my waiter was able to chose me wine from this region WITHOUT any indication that this will be perfect for me. He knew exactly what he was doing! Thats talent! Compliments to the CHEF especially for the scallop gnocchi. Compliments also to the pastry chef for the best salted caramel ice-cream ive ever had! It was just a little too noisy, no biggie.

    Reservations at 8, seated 8:02. Started with MRC roll, fantastic. Followed by crunchy rice cakes, I loved them husband thought they were ehhh. Lobster rolls were yum. Wagyu on a rock was fun and tasty but not worth $32. Scallop Gnocchi was everything!!! The dessert recommended was the peaches over doughs, the dough was chewy, not in a good way, the flavor paired poorly together, told waitress that the croissant was hard didn't ask to take off check. Overall food is great, would return, would for sure get another dessert.

We also had the Crispy Shrimp which I will I would have ordered just for myself....simply amazing, Crunchy Rice Cakes, Sake Chicken Lettuce Cups and Scallop Gnocchi! We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and everything was perfect. I have been to Catch several times and each time I enjoy myself more and more.

    Food one delicious! A little on the loud side so hard to talk, but understandable for a hot spot especially on a Friday night. Cool ambiance but service was a little slow, felt like our table got pushed to the side behind other people. After dinner go upstairs to the lounge for a drink on the outside patio. Great place.

    Excelente lugar, increíble menú. El único detalle fue con la recepcionista; realice mi preservación desde MEX dos semanas antes, llegamos puntual a la mesa 7:00 pm. tuvimos que esperar 25 minutos para pasar a la mesa. El Restaurante no estaba lleno, solo fue actitud de la primera recepcionista. Ya que al consultar con una segunda chica, muy amablemente nos llevó a nuestra mesa en ese mismo instante. Lo que me causó este sentimiento es que en el momento que nos lleva a la mesa nos comenta que nuestra mesa ya estaba lista desde el momento de nuestra llegada.

    When I was attempting to book a reservation it seemed the hardly any timeslots were available. When I arrived however it was nearly empty. Even though I made a reservation I was told the table would be needed in about an hour and a half time. I was done way before that but I thought that was kind of rude. The food was decent with the view wasn't great and the ambience was nonexistent.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Catch. Good was original, fresh and excellent. Went to the bar after our meal. great bar scene as well. Only complaint is they ran out of Cabernet. They offered by the bottle for over $100 and since only one of us was drinking cab, was not worth it. Why not open a bottle to pour by the glass ?? Didn't make sense. Good time and would definitely go back.
