    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.
