I was impressed. I'm not a big seafood person, but really enjoyed the food. The snapper and Mahi tacos were great. Downstairs looked kinda plain, upstairs has a much better atmosphere.

It was a great meal. A tad more casual and less expensive than other Miami restaurants- which had no impact on the quality of food. Shrimp and yucca tater tots were my favorite!

Perfect for a fun group dinner!
I came to Catch on Saturday night for a Bachelorette Party and had an amazing, memorable experience. The hostess and waiter were gracious, and helped us celebrate. The food was awesome. Everyone in the party was raving about it the next day, even the picky eaters! I would recommend Catch to anyone having a big group dinner.

Great for a Mix of Diners
A birthday dinner for 6 on a busy Saturday night proved to be the best dining of the weekend. Our children in their late 20's ("foodies" in my opinion) loved the tastes of "roll appetizers" and fish entrees. The sommelier pointed us towards a delicious, not too expensive white wine, satisfying many tastes. My husband and I split 3 small plates of baked shrimp, mini-taco mahi mahi and mushroom spaghetti finding them extremely tasty .
We sat upstairs as recommended and agree this was much nicer than the main floor. But the noise became high as music levels increased and people crowded in.
The bills was certainly far more than we would normally pay ($100/p), but our special occasion did truly turn out to be special for the whole family.

We Will Return
It was a great dining experience.
The food was excellent and the service was very good. We were a large group and had the opportunity to try almost everything on the menu. There are no bad choices!
It is a great place and we will defenetly return.

We had an early reservation for Catch and enjoyed the bar below for 30 minutes -- excellent bar tender. The food and service at Catch were excellent. The recommendation was to share several small dishes and split one main item. We had the crispy shrimp, lobster rolls, Catch roll, lobster macaroni and scallops as a main course. All were excellent. This place has a great variety to the menu seemed mostly familiar items with various twists -- all very creative and very well executed. Our service was excellent -- with several attentive staff taking care of us. Four starters + entrees was plenty of food for 2 (maybe even a little more than we needed). I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation -- a great find.

Great for groups and great food
The restaurant is fantastic place on South Beach. Creative dishes--sushi, seafood, chicken, meat... you can find anything for anyone in your group. But don't miss the sushi and seafood. Excellent quality and great flavors. Cocktails are excellent as well. Items can easily be shared. Small portions if you want them.

The customer service and atmosphere
The customer service and atmosphere exceeded my group's expectations. It was an enjoyable experience. Definitely a winner!

I've Been here twice, food is great, service is just ok. Music is very bad. And tables are not that comfortable. But the food worth it. I'm definitely going back again.

The rice cakes were amazing!
The rice cakes were amazing! The crab spaghetti was nothing special. The busser was far more attentive than the server despite the fact that we dined fairly early and the restaurant was not even remotely full. Great wine recommendation.

7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best meals I have had in a long time - from the sushi appetizer through to the dessert. All courses were fully described by our server and he honestly wanted to know our opinion on each dish. This chef is incredibly talented!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic dinner, dessert and drink
My friends and I were in Miami last week for five days. We stayed at The James which is located next to catch. The bartender at the hotel and the concierge recommended going to Catch. I also saw in Ocean Drive magazine that it was rated the #3 restaurant in Miami and boy were they right! The food was cocktails exceeded out expectations and the key lime doughnut dessert was a winner.
I higher recommended an evening at catch next time you're in Miami!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding service! We went here on a short trip to Miami beach for our six year anniversary and actually celebrated my fiancés birthday here. The food was great (i had sushi an he got the mahi mahi) and the ambience was excellent. I would recommend this place to a friend if they are looking for good food and a great bar downstairs!!

Creative preparation of very fresh seafood! It was a bitg pricier than I expected, but well worth the investiment.

Catch is a beautiful restaurant!
Catch is a beautiful restaurant! Great ambiance, lively vibe, felt like we were in New York...staff are well trained very friendly and very knowledgeable about all food items. The pretzel bites are delicious, crunchy tuna rice cakes divine, white mussels were very tasty, although a bit cold when they were served. Everything we ordered was prepared and presented perfectly! Can't wait to go again!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose CATCH fr Open Table because it was close to our hotel, but I'd honestly go out of my way to dine there again! The service was outstanding! Prompt and friendly! Fabulous drink menu and wine list! We started w drinks and tappas, followed by entres and even dessert! Food was delicious and presentation was gorgeous! Food was tasty and fresh! I went with my teenage daughters, but there were couples and groups as well. A must see! Decor was comfortable and inviting. Nicely done. Love the large copper light fixtures!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The good was amazing. Everything we ordered was perfect and came out at a perfect time. We had a really pleasant night. Not only was the mean good but the dessert was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Food is WONDERFUL!!!
great food! ad it was not too noisy tonight..we had a wonderful time
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun spot with great food
We ate there on a slow Wednesday night. Food was incredible. Portions are bigger than you'd expect for South Beach and the price. Our service was fantastic, waiter was very engaging and made excellent recommendations. Highly recommend it.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
So much food! Fabulous variety
So much food! Fabulous variety of seafood and everything done perfectly. Loved everything we had - snapper, lobster rolls, tuna tacos, mahi mahi, lobster Mac and cheese, grace roll and cocktails!

The food was by far the best thing about the restaurant! The plates were creative and delicious!

Catch Miami was great. We
Catch Miami was great. We enjoyed our meal immensely and would definitely go back next time in South Beach. We shared the tuna tacos and the chicken lettuce wraps. my husband had the red snapper and I had the Cobia. Both delicious but the pinnacle was the key lime donut we took to go and ate for breakfast the next day cause we were too full.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Catch is a catch!
This is a great restaurant. I selected it for visitors who were staying in a hotel on Ocean Drive. Catch was noted in "Miami" Magazineas on of the 10 most exciting new restaurants. It was within walking distance of my friends more ordinary hotel. I booked dinner through Open Table. The experience was fantastic from beginning to end. I earned new respect from my discerning friends. Tryit, you can't help but like it!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Experience-great catch!
I have always heard of the Catch in NY but never had a chance to visit. Now I'm so excited to know I have an option in MIami and also in my own backyard. The food was great, service was timely and friendly . The food was great and well presented. I'm also a big fan of ambience and presentation. Catch had both! Bravo!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great flavor, wonderful seafood
As a seafood snob, I found Catch to be one of my new favorite places in Miami for great seafood. Nice combinations of freshly prepared food.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good weight of a to chef winner. Not one untasty thing on this menu. I want to try everything !
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was amazing! Will be returning soon
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Catch Miami- what a find!
Great food, service, and location...Helping put Miami Beach back on the foodie map, Catch Miami was a pleasant surprise and is a welcome addition signaling strongly the return of exciting gourmet dining to South Beach. Small dining room makes it feel intimate, and high ceilings makes it like an industrial-style NY loft, yet it's hidden inside an Art Deco gem. The food was innovative, and exciting, and super flavorful. Wine list strong and accessible. Also appreciate the service which did not make us feel "less than" but rather enthusiastically pushed the Miami Spice specials-- they know how to build loyalty. The server did win us over, with warmth, respect and genuine friendliness. We can't wait to return and play Catch! again!
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Party of 4 girls for birthday celebration. We were extremely pleased. Only ordered appetizers and shared. Standouts: Crunchy Rice Roll, Catch Roll, Hamachi Crudo, Salmon Belly Carpaccio. The only item we ordered that we could have done without was the lobster rolls. Everything else excellent! Their homemade pretzel bread superb! The girls loved their cosmopolitans and I loved the sake. Service could not have been better. Highly recommend.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 3rd visit to Catch in Miami - as before, they honored the reservation (no wait), service was excellent, food excellent as well. Sushi rolls, spicy shrimp, and chicken lettuce cups to start - snapper and scallops as entrees, and peanut butter souflee and key lime donut for dessert. Maybe a bit too much food but we weren't rushed. A bit pricey and they add 20% gratuity - although service was excellent, it is the Miami custom of routinely adding gratuities that I don't like. Friendly clientele.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is very nice and charming, plus you can sit inside or out. I do have two problems with the restaurant. One it is way to dark inside to see a menu, especially if you are not 20 or 30 something. I noticed several other diners using the candles to better see the menu. Also, and this is not just this restaurant, but I don't like paying the automaic 20% tip added on my bill.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and Inspired Food
The decor and atmosphere is very much like restaurants of a similar caliber in NYC. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive, but inconspicuous. The food was inspired, had amazing flavors and was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall it was a good experience. The main course was pretty salty for my taste. Nice vibe, great service.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We make it a point to eat at Catch when were in South Beach. The food is superb. They serve a pretzel bread instead of a just regular bread to start. We tried the hamache and ceviche to start and the appetizers were full of flavor. We had the crispy pork dish that serves two. The portions were huge. We also tried the yuca tator tots and sweet potato purée that were fantastic. I didn't try any dessert as we were so stuffed. Request to eat upstairs.. Downstairs has the same menu but not nearly as aesthetic. The restaurant is not able to change the Art Deco decor downstairs because it's a historical site.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Real Good, not yet great
The most insanely priced wine list I think I've ever seen, simply stupid. South Beach is expensive, but not every bottle on that list is a cult classic.
On a very limited the "by the glass" list, the waiter poured a glass of wine and I got about 2/3 pour. Waiter said he would be back with a new bottle to “top me off”; Never did.
However, the food was delicious, Lobster Cantonese, great, the sushi rolls we order were terrific. The Service was got a bit better as the evening went on. Just not good enough to get all 5’s, but still worth a trip
I will commend the Manger, Hardy. He took good care of us after they mistakenly tossed our left over dinner and desert. He’s a pro. Thanks Hardy.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best restaurants in Miami right now. Excellent and looking forward to going back!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we got to the restaurant it was empty. We a were the only people in the bar. I thought this was a bad sign. Granted it was Halloween and there was construction in front of the place. However, from the bartender to the dessert the meal was wonderful. My watermelon cocktail was superb. And the fried chicken and deep fried snapper was to die for. I eat at a lot of restaurants and grew up around seafood and this was amazing. So glad we went. This place should be packed.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Anniversary Dinner!
My wife and I had a fantastic experience at Catch. The Crudo's were fresh and outstanding. The Scallop dish was not something we would have thought to order but accepted the suggestion from our waiter and were very impressed. The lobster macaroni and cheese is to die for! And the chocolate desert was absolutely worth every sinful bite!

Great food especially scallops to die for! Ambience is average and same with service.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food and service!
try the crispy pork shank, its a large plate and fed four people , it was delicious as were the tacos and everything we had. Great service, would definitely go back!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
we will be back
A very good restaurant if you like seafood don`t miss it. However the service is too fast we had not finished our first plta , the second and third were already on our table

I had been to Catch in NY
I had been to Catch in NY in the Meatpacking district. Both were excellent, the food was outstanding. My only other observation was that our server was pretty aloof and not very attentive even though the other supporting staff were extremely courteous.
My wife and eat out in the Beach and Gables area often and service for us is as important as the quality of food.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to dinner with a group of six. The atmospheres is definitely energetic. The service and the food were all tremendous. I studied the menu before I got there so I understood the lay of the land., as it is a bit confusing. (At least for me). The rice cake/tuna tartar was great and the snapper is excellent. We enjoyed our night so much that we went back again a few nights later. Things were a little different for two than for six, but still a great night and a great meal.
This is a home run.
