    Great food. It was so noisy that it was almost impossible to have a conversation. The first table we were offered was almost in the staircase. They were able to get us a different table after waiting another half hour. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you are in your thirties and wanting to just party while at dinner.

    We had a large bachelorette party of 10 girls for dinner at The Catch and our waitress was phenomenal! Normally wait staff at any given restaurant doesn't like large parties due to confusion of who's paying or how is the bill split or "oh geez these girls are going to be annoying" but we had a fantastic time! The food was outstanding and the service was awesome! The promoter of the restaurant even saw we were a large group celebrating a soon-to-be wedding and offered us a free bottle of champagne at the rooftop bar! I will be recommending this restaurant to anyone visiting New York!

    We had a pleasant evening at the restaurant. We asked about going to Catch Roof and were told we just needed to go downstairs and get a stamp. We were well dressed women of 40 and 50. When we went down, the bouncer was rude and referred us to a scruffy young guy named George. George actively ignored us. He then told us it was full. I do not believe I have ever been treated with such disdain by a doorman in my life.

    Food was awesome, but music selection and service could use some improvement. We dined on a busy Friday night, so the restaurant and bar were absolutely slammed. While our waiter was friendly, he was extremely busy and unable to check in on us appropriately. Also the busers did not know to provide us with fresh silverware when removing our appetizer plates. I recommend going at a less popular time for better service. Also, blasting Journey and Chromeo back to back definitely threw off the vibe. Seafood tasted very fresh though. Oysters were creamy and the proper temperature. The sauce for the shrimp scampi was delicious, as was the truffle butter for the mahi mahi. Beware the cocktails were a bit overly sugary.

    This was a return visit so I was looking forward to our dinner. We had an early reservation and walked into an almost empty restaurant. After making us wait at the entry desk the hostess started to take us upstairs. We requested a table on the main level where we then sat for at least ten minutes, until one of us got up to ask for some service. Our food was very good, but the rude service means I will not return.

    Catch rec'd a letter B in the Health Dept rating. We should have cancelled. The hostess, Alexia was way too full of herself and rude. The waiter was condescending. The bill was incorrect. We brought it to his attention and made us feel very uncomfortable for noticing. Way overpriced for the extremely small portions. Second time and wont give it a third.

    terrible service, we waited at the bar area for 1 hour and didn't get served because they claimed they had Health Inspector on the premises and couldn't serve anything... although it was very obvious to see some were getting their drinks. we got seated (after too much waiting and although restaurant was fairly empty) and service at the table was average to say the least!

    How can a restaurant make you wait for over 45 minutes even with a reservation? It must be that they don't care about their diners. Tables were open so we asked why the wait. We were told a few minutes. After about 20 minutes we asked again, we were told they were waiting for an appropriate server for us(I didn't know that my group of 5 was so unique that we required an appropriate server!!). Then after another 20 minutes we were told that they had a problem with the health inspectors...health inspectors!! finally the third hostess was honest. Although her comment did not inspire confidence in our dining experience. Anyway we went ahead and had a good meal. However, the wait staff is arrogant!! No need for that..politeness always wins!!

    I had heard wonderful things about this Meatpacking District seafood restaurant. I finally went last night with my husband and 2 friends for my birthday dinner. Everything from the service to the food ranged from terrible to only mediocre at best. I was terribly disappointed and a little upset that I had chosen such a terrible spot for (a very expensive) bad meal and bad service.

    Food and service were great. I say watch out because they play games with reservations here constantly and everyone who knows Catch talks about it. They said they didn't have my Open Table reservation when I arrived but sat us anyway. Then I get an email from Open Table saying I missed my reservation. Make sure when you book here you get the name of the person who took your reservation. Other than the games they play with their tables, its a good experience.

    The hot plates section on the menu was definitely my favorite. My 3 friends and I ordered 4 hot plates and 2 rolls to share, and it was the perfect amount. Most notable was the lobster Mac n cheese--we never wanted it to stop!! Mahi mahi tacos were also amazing, as were the crispy shrimp and rice cakes with tuna tartare. We had the s'mores pizza for dessert and it added a fun twist of flavors to the meal. Great atmosphere for a fun and lively dinner, great wine, and great food! I'll definitely be back

    My partner and I were recommended this place on our second visit to NYC. The place has a great buzz, a very nice decor, and good food. Service was good as well, except we had to wait for a fairly long time and they ran out of sowrdfish when we tried to order. Enjoyed the experience overall, would recommend for groups more than for romantic dinners though.

    Food was great and we enjoyed the scene. For an 8pm reservation time on a Wednesday night, we didn't get seated until almost 9pm. Our server was also nothing to be excited about. He seemed disinterested in all of his tables while the other servers nearby seemed engaging and friendly. We enjoyed going on the roof afterwards for a drink and a view of the neighborhood.

    We selected this restaurant for NYC location and the great reviews. Disappointing was the NYC Health Inspection rating on the door was only a shocking "B"! We had reservations , however when we arrived at 6PM dinner we were given a cold unfriendly greeting by the hostess and seated at a table in the back of an empty restaurant! I asked if we could have another table and told no, that they were all reserved! This was not acceptable! The manager then reluctantly seated us in the front near a window. I believe we were discriminated against due to being a grey haired couple in this so-called Yuppie place. They obviously did not know who we were! Food was underwhelming. An hour later when we left the "reserved" tables remained mostly empty!

    The food was delicious as always but it's not worth going because the service is so terrible. We had a 1030pm reservation on a Sunday evening, it was not crowded. However, it took forever to be seated. Once we finally did sit, the waitress took 14 minutes to greet us...yes, after a while, I was watching the time to see how long she would really take. When she approached us, we only had one menu for the entire table of four. She had to be asked for additional menus- had an attitude about it. We asked for more orders of our appetizers- she had an attitude about that. I've never seen a waitress so mad at me for spending money!! If it wasn't for the good food, it would be zero stars. Will I go back? Never again, food is not worth bad service.

    Too noisey. Too crowded. Wait staff cannot even get to your table due to crowding of tables and chairs. If you sit at a booth along the wall you are so close to the next table you can eat off your neighbors plate. Our waitress tried to be accommodating. Front desk girls were rude and seemedore interested in talking to each other than warmly greeting guests. Good was awesome no doubt. But general experience disappointing. At this high price improvements in the overall environment would make dining here worth it.

    I know Catch has been around for a while but this was my first time dining here. The food was delicious! We went with a larger group and shared everything. The crispy rice cakes are a must, as were the sushi rolls (seared tuna I believe), delicious grilled octopus, and the brocollini side was great. The service was fine. They didn't bring us menus for about 10 minutes even though there were a bunch of waiters just standing around looking pretty. Once we got menus though everything went smoothly... I would definitely go back!

    Had a big group on a Friday evening and we all had a great time. The bar is upbeat and lively and we easily got drinks before our table was ready. We ordered several apps and rolls to share at the table and they were all delicious. Great mixed drinks to try..recommend the Hermes cocktail. Upstairs roof/club is very fun, too, for after dinner.

    This place is hard to find. Despite the address as 9 th Ave the entrance is a tiny doorway on 13th street. But it is worth the search. You go up a small elevator to the second floor and suddenly you are in this vast noisy bustling hive of activity cocktail waiters rattling their drinks cooks shouting instructions to each other across the open kitchen waiters rushing back and forth dining parties laughing and yelping quite a buzz and then the food is amazing.

    All of our food was delicious. There was three of us and we ordered 5 dishes total, a few from the apps list and a few from other parts of the menu. We got all seafood and it was all fresh and flavorful and delicious. Our favorite was the tuna poke with avocado and macadamia nuts. The tuna was so fresh and delicious. We had a 6:30 reservation and around 8:00 the place started to fill up more and grow increasingly louder, but it was fine. There were a bunch of groups eating and a bunch of couples and a bunch of smaller parties. i would definitely recommend this place for a gathering with friends or even a date night.

    I really like the food and the ambiance; its a more modern crowd. The music is pop/contemporary but not loud where you are yelling over it. The last time I was there the service was not the best. I think my waitress had too many tables, but this has not been a problem any other time I've been a patron. I would recommend the snapper or the branzino.
