  • Inexperienced Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/20/2014
    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 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.

    We were a party of five there to celebrate. The food was excellent, the service was great, and the atmosphere was fun. Excellent cocktail menu, the best I've had in New York! The sushi was fresh the small plates were great and the entrées were amazing. Definitely try the branzino and a crispy rice cakes.

    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.

    Up and trendy restaurant . Diner was delicious , we had an assortment of sushie rolls that we shared , unfortunately service was quick and every thing was laid in front of us in no time . For desert we had a cookie....something or another , seemed to be inspired from a Felix & Norten cookie stand , really nothing to do with the finesse of the main dish

    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!

    I have always loved the food and ambiance. It's been a while since I haven't been there and happy to find everything even better than I remembered. 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.

    Catch was a huge disappointment. From not having our table ready when we arrived, to eventually seating our party at the most awkward group table in the entire restaurant where we literally had to yell across the large table to members of our group to be heard. The drinks were fine (nothing special) and the food was sub-par. The Chef's overalls lack of seasoning usage (prevalent in every dish) was hardly ignorable. All in all, Catch was "pedestrian." We won't be coming back. Thanks!

    This is the second time I have been to Catch for dinner. It is incredible. I will definitely eat here every time I am in the City. Although sometimes you need a reservation, if you know you will be in the City a few days in advance, you should really check this place out. We sat on the roof top with the great view, delicious food, amazing atmosphere and good people. The food was better then I remember. So great. Also, if you feel like staying a bit, the interior section of the restaurant turns into a dance party around 11ish. It's pretty cool. This is a great place for a special occasion or a nice dinner with your significant other. Cheers.

    I had made reservations at 8pm and was seated at 10pm... This was handled in a very snobbish manner by the waitresses who seemed not to care about your situation. We were redirected at the bar which was super noisy and super crowded and obliged to consume 2 overpriced cocktails before being seated... Food was good but this is way too much hype around a restaurant that takes little care of its customers

    I've been here a few times and the food is always amazing. prepare to spend top dollar both at the restaurant and bar ($15 shots!) but if you are willing to shell it out you will not be disappointed. Fish is the freshest, flavors are bold, and service is attentive. Upstairs DJ and club is convenient to go and dance off all those delicious calories!
