    appetizers looked and tasted very good. main course nice but nothing outstanding. service has been very nice and friendly. we were in a spot with barely no light and not only it was difficult to read the menu but also to look at the food we were eating (I hate this!) nice place with good food (but honestly I don't know who rated this as one of the top 10 seafood restaurants in NYC)

    Although this place is packed nightly. It was a pleasant surprise to find it nearly Empty for a Monday lunch. The table on the open terrace was perfect an d the food was great. The service was a little uneven as I had to wait for my fish tacos while my friends were practically finished with their dishes.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014VIP

    We had a reservation and had to wait 30 minutes for our table. They sat us in the back corner of the restaurant. The server was not very attentive and although our appetizers came out quickly, our main course took way too long and came out cold. I usually really enjoy this restaurant but this was not a great experience.

    I've been to catch a few times already. It was amazing when it first opened and now the service/food steadily declined over the past few years. I ordered the Red snapper and lobster mash and it was undercooked and cold. Felt as if they just plated many of these dishes before it was actually ordered. I was very disappointed with the service. The waitress didn't come back to check up. Not going back to catch, it was a waste of money and time.

    Catch is one of my favorite restaurants, and the food as usual was very good, but this experience was a bit disappointing. We arrived a little before 9 p.m. Friday night for our 9 p.m. reservations, and we weren't seated until 9:45. The appetizer arrived after our entrees. And our bread arrived after the appetizer. And the dining area was so packed that we had people at the table behind us standing and hovering over us all dinner. Catch is great, but much better during the week when it is less of a scene.

  • Waiter
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/24/2014
    The waiter was quite rude. When I asked for a bottle of wine with lunch I think he thought I meant for the wine to arrive when the food came. I was find about the mix up but got a reprimand from the waiter who told me "you told me it was with lunch". Not a "sorry I misunderstood". We were presented with the check but were still finishing our wine so took a little while to settle. We got told off by the same waiter for the delay. I let it go as I did not want to ruin the lunch with a girlfriend who I had not seen for a long time. BTW this has not put me off from coming again. The first time I came was in the summer on the roof terrace and the staff were lovely.

  • Lots of attitude but lacks quality.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    Booked a table for two on Thursday evening for myself and my wife. Arrived at 8.30 for our reservation and the place was packed. After a bit of a scrum at the desk we were told that there was a delay on our table and to get a drink at the bar, not a problem and we were served quickly and enjoyed the buzzing bar. After 45 minutes we were called to our table. Waiter seemed bored and more interested in talking to his friends at the next table - oh well it's New York right? The food was bad. The waiter forgot our order, sides arrived 10 minutes before the main, which was cold and bland and as it was gnocchi and scallops we left pretty much all of it. Really wanted to like the place but too much attitude and not enough quality to back it up.

    I don't understand the appeal of Catch. Though the food is truly good (albeit wickedly overpriced), the experience is ruined by fabulosity over competence. The well documented rude reservation process and long waits for service took all the fun out of the evening. The deafening noise level encouraged us to decamp for dessert at a lovely peaceful restaurant down the street where we could talk.

    I don't usually complain but when I am paying that kind of money for a dinner, I expect to get amazing service. The guy was inexperienced, didn't know the menu, brought us the wrong entre and still tried to push it on us claiming that's what we said. Nothing was taken off the bill as an apology even though we had to eat the very expensive crab legs at the end while everyone else was done with dinner. Nice place but the crowd was a bunch of expense accounts.

  • Have had better food, rude rooftop
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    Celebrated a birthday with a group of 6. Waited 30 minutes for our table even with reservation. Service once at our table was rather fast. Some of our dishes were good others not that great. Ambience nice. Would not return due to food and no access to rooftop after dinner. We were told that we needed to buy bottles in the rooftop in order to go up even though we had just dished out hundreds of dollars at dinner. Very rude and misleading because I called in advance to make sure.

    I went why my best friend was in town for the weekend, as I'd heard great things. Our reservation was for 9:15 and we were told to get a drink ($18 cocktails) at the bar, and were seated around 9:35. Our waiter seemed a bit impatient with us, but did make a great suggestion that we needed to order more food than we originally planned to split. We had the lobster mac n cheese (DELISH), the grilled octopus (also wonderful, but small) and the grilled shrimp with tamarind sauce (amply shaped prawns, but there is nothing else aside from the shrimp and a few sad carrots). The food all tasted great but aside from the lobster mac, I felt the portions were small for the price. Would go back again for a special occasion.

    We went to Catch for our wedding anniversary and were so disappointed with experience. Our warm app and entree were cold by the time it reached our table. We had the app scallop special that was overcooked with "foie gras" cut smaller than bacon bits! Completely overpriced at $15 per piece! We had the special entree - Dover sole - served with a sauce brought to us so cold that it had congealed into a thick goo ($80). The banana dessert was tasteless. When we pointed out that the dessert was left off our bill (figuring honesty is the best policy) to our waiter Walter, we got a curt "I'll take care of that.", no "thank you", no "I'm sorry for my mistake, don't worry about it". He returned with the $12 dessert added to the bill.

    Great food and beautiful restaurant by Top Chef season 3 winner Hung Huynh. Service was great to start as we were notified via text message that our table was ready 15 minutes prior to our reservation. Our server was told about our time restriction as we had to catch a musical later at night and everything was great until it was time to pay. After clearing our plates and being asked for the bill as we were in a rush to leave to make it to our musical, our server disappeared for 10~15 minutes. I noticed that he was just standing at the other side of the restaurant talking to colleagues at the bar and I was very disappointed to how the night ended.

    I came to Catch for my birthday and I was quite disappointed to say the least. The food was great, however, the service completely ruined the entire experience. It took over 20 minutes to get water and when we did get water, they didn't fill everyone's cups. Next weren't served bread and had to ask multiple times for not only water to fill up someones cup who wasn't filled at all and for the bread. Once our appetizers and entrees were served, the waiter was missing and didn't check to see how things were. Even though we could see how attentive he was being to other tables. I wanted to leave ASAP but we only got dessert because it was my birthday. I got a smug happy birthday from the rude waiter and then it took 30 minutes to pay our check.

    Our group of 4 all enjoyed the food. The special of the day, the atlantic char was a hit all around, as were the little lobster rolls and muscle appetizers. We found the noise level too high and struggled to hear our conversation. We then asked our waiter if it were possible to lower the music, and he was very accommodating. Service was attentive and pleasant. A definite fun scene with good food.

    I was at Catch for the 3rd time last week. Thursday is a lot more crowded and had to wait a bit for the table but the bar although crowded was easy to get drinks from and we enjoyed a cocktail till they came to seat us. I like that the hostess comes to find you at the bar to seat you. Classy. Food was excellent as always. The herb roasted branzino was delicious as was my companion's grilled swordfish. I will definitely be back!

This is a really great place to have a group dinner if you like seafood. There is a lot of variety on the menu, ıit is even more enjoyable if you all order different things and try as much as you can...

    Have been wanting to check this ace out for a long time. Finally we got here...and we're not impressed at all. The only good impression of the dinner was the fact that we had a table by the window and I was looking out at Ganvoort hotel. The food was not bad, I have to admit. But it is priced inadequately high. I'm talking about sushi. The service was ok. So,my overall impression is ok,but not like I would wanna come back.
