Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "The food at CATCH was different, beautifully presented and absolutely Phenomenal! The seasonings and flavors were unlike any other I have had. We enjoyed every dish we ordered. I would not go there for a quiet romantic evening though. Too loud and tables on top of each other."

  • "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."

  • "My friend and I were in town for a girls weekend and were looking for restaurants with a nice view and good food reviews. Overall we were quite happy with our experience although despite 15 minutes early and then checked in with the hostess about our table again at our reservation time we were not seated for another 1/2 hour after our reservation (despite a 10pm Saturday night reservation). Our waiter was busy and quite absent, never came by to see how we were doing and actually brought us dessert menus while we were still waiting for our meal to come! The food was fantastic and atmosphere was great. Overall I would recommend if you want good food and aren't in a hurry!"

  • "THe food was great, the cocktails were unique! THe thing that will make or break this place is the service. We were first seated and had a male waiter that seemed to hate his job. He was rude and short with us and made us feel stupid because he said we hadn't ordered enough food (we had ordered about 3 dishes each!!) He rolled his eyes when we said we'd order more later if we were still hungry. Then to our surprise our new, female server came to our table to explain that he had just been covering her section for a moment- THANK GOODNESS!! She was the nicest, most fun server, giving great recommendations! Oh and I can't leave without telling you about our dessert! The banana dessert- it was INCREDIBLE!! Save room for dessert!"

  • "I go to catch at least once a month with family, friends and clients. Food is always excellent and the vibe there is amazing. Last Friday I brought a couple of friends who were celebrating their honeymoon in NYC and wanted to have the great experience catch always provide. How wrong was I, first we waited almost 45 minutes for our table. The host was ok but the waiter and floor managers were rude. Then it took the food hours to come out and when I say hours I mean for a starter, simple as the crispy rice tuna to take two hours it probably meant it was really fresh as I could have catch it myself and serve it in less time. I was really disappointed this time and probably won't take my next guests to catch. For a $300 meal I expect more!"

  • "If this is your first date with her, this isn't the place. But, if you're celebrating your engagement with her with many friends, there is no place better. Loud and fun with amazing food. So much energy! ..... Share several plates. Everything is so good, you couldn't possibly choose a favorite. .... And save room for desert. Order all and share. .... What a night! .... If you leave disappointed, it will be your fault."

  • "Last year, I would have said that this was one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. Tonight, I was severely disappointed. I have been here at least 20 times for various different occasions. Tonight, I made a reservation for 8pm for 4 people. After 30 minutes, we went to the hostess stand were told our table would be ready soon. 45 minutes passed, still not sat. What is the point of making a reservation if I am going to sit at the bar for an hour waiting on my table? Finally, we sit. I order a bottle of wine. They dont have it. I order two others. They are out. No offer to honor the price or even price range of the FIRST 3 BOTTLES. We spent over $400 for a completely disappointing experience. NEVER AGAIN. Dont waste your time."

  • "another great client dinner.. asked the waiter to bring us a variety of what he liked and ended up with a great meal.. we ended up running into more clients and hanging out by the bar long after our meal was over.. great scene, great food.. couldn't ask for more"

  • "There was 7 of us. We made reservations for 8:45 and got there exactly at that time. Our table wasn't ready yet and we were asked to wait at the bar and get some drinks. We waited for at least half an hour after that I went to the front desk to ask how much longer we had to wait and was told that the table is ready. We all went to the table and I guess our table was given away to someone else because they stopped us and asked us to wait 2 more minutes. After about 10 min. We were seated at a different table witch was great! They gave us complimentary appetizers and shots. After that we were all very happy! The food was amazing the drinks were amazing! Overall had a Great time at Catch! Will definitely come back again!"

  • "Even though we had a 8:45pm reservation we weren't seated till 9:45pm. Sushi was average, nothing special and I found a crab shell in one of the rolls and almost broke my tooth. It's a scene but I wouldn't even return for drinks."

  • "An amazing find & well worth it. Between the 2 of us, we shared the Toro tartare with caviar👍, 1 dozen west coast oysters, steamed mussels, Cantonese lobsters 👌 & oyster shooters (spicy Bloody Mary accompaniment). The meal was spectacular. This is the kind of restaurant u can enjoy with a friend, large group, or loved one. It has a nightclubby feel, and it's decor is stunning and avant-garde. Lighting was über-low (we needed our iPhone flashlights). Funky & eclectic music pumping... Good service, friendly & helpful waitstaff. Toro melted in the mouth and caviar was a crunchy and savory finish. Cantonese lobsters finished with sake were spicy, sweet, and absolutely succulent. Shooters were spicy, briny and a fun beginning. Come here soon!"

  • "My husband and I had friends coming to visit us from Miami. We had a reservation in another restaurant in West Village but we thought that Catch could be a better idea for dinner. Wrong choice, the service was terrible, the impression was that us were doing a service to be there. We order a bottle of wine, took 15,20 minutes to the guy bring our order and finally he said they were out of that wine...really? After this, 3 dishes that we order were out of service that day and the answer when we asked why was...we've been busy these days...really? It was embarassing, not the first time that the service was that bad so probably our last time there....unfortunatelly cause we usually like there for the ambiance and food."

  • "To be honest the resturant is good. The waitress that we had was one of the better waitresses I have has in a good long time. However what was the biggest turnoff was the hostesses. When you check in they are unbelievably rude coupled with unfounded arrogance that the rest. as a whole is a turn off. What's also unbelievable is when you reach out to the group they couldn't careless. Example was when they had the steak house on 14th street. I had unbelievable fantastic service that I wrote an email congratulating them and singling out that employee. No one cared or gave a %#^*! I have friends that were high up in a Chelsea mkt tv company. In there experience they will never hold an off site event there because of the way they were treated."

  • "My server was not accommodating to every one of my guests. I had 11 people attending but the server gave most of his attention away from the other half of the table where I was sitting. The food is delicious but a tad pricey."

  • "My friend and I chose to go on an a Wednesday evening thinking it would be a bit slower but we were wrong. The place was hopping. The vibe was good but the overall noise level was more of a roar. My friend and I had to raise our voices to be heard. Also the place was a bit too dark so even though the food was delicious you couldn't really see it. As we had ordered several small dishes we asked for them to be brought out slowly in order for us to enjoy the dishes and not have our tiny table cluttered with dishes. Our waitress said this would not be a problem, but after we finished our first dish suddenly the rest of them were brought out and we felt overwhelemed. We could not find our waitress as there were so many patrons."

  • "We inquired about the rooftp, outdoor seat-g and were told that it was 1st come, 1st serve, that we could go upstairs and check, but that we should hurry b/c they would give our reservation away if we were more than 15 min late. Not a great 1st impression.We went upstairs and were promptly seated. A complete scene. Lots of loud, drunk people. Some issues w/service-price on bill different than on menu, out of the asparagus so rather than telling us they just brought us green beans (which were awesome).Our waitress Samantha was a bit of a ditz and screwed a few things up. Lobster rolls are a must. As good as I've had in Maine. Oysters were phenomenal. Salmon and ahi tuna were great. Underwhelmed by the desserts-smores pizza and creme brulee."

  • "We visited Catch on a Friday night @ 9:00pm and the restaurant was packed. We had to wait a little past our dining reservation by @ 30 min but it was totally worth the wait!! The Mushroom Spaghetti and the Lobster Pasta were the most amazing items on the menu! I wanted to lick my plate! I asked the waiter for a dinner recommendation choice and I would have to agree that the Mushroom Pasta is the BEST PASTA ON THE PLANET!! If you like mushrooms get this dish!! The secret to this dish is in the sauce. Everyone at the table was very happy with their meal. We were in NYC for four days and this meal was voted our favorite! The restaurant is noisy/lively! The six of us sat at a round table and that allowed us to have a conversation!"
