    We usually go to this restaurant prior to concerts. On this night, before Tom Petty, it didn't seem any busier than other concert nights. Despite being asked in our reservation and in the pre reservation call if we were going to the concert, it didn't seem to make any difference in the service. Although our server was very friendly, wait times for drinks, meals, refills, eat seemed to be especially long this particular night. The steaks, chops and fish were the usual high standard and the martini options were vast, including some special Tom Petty themed martini and shot. Still our go to for this area.

    We went to The Catch before attending a concert across the street. The staff seemed unprepared and disorganized for the moderate sized crowd. Their prices were amazingly high for what they provide. About $40 for a nicely prepared Sea Bass (their so called signature dish). It was fine but not OMG, $40 worth. Their prices equal that of a Mastros or Morton's but the quality and atmosphere doesn't even come close. The service was underwhelming and while the food wasn't objectionable, it wasn't worth the price. If you are seeing a show at The Grove in Anaheim, there are much better choices nearby.

    We were there before a show and the restaurant was completely unprepared for the crowd they would obviously be getting and they didn't even care. Our waitress was invisible. We actually went to the beat and for drinks in 5 minutes but waited 25 for the ones we ordered. Poorly run & managed

    Celebrated a retirement with a luncheon for a small group of 5. I enjoy the ambiance of this restaurant - open, airy, with lots of windows. The service overall was very good - just took a bit longer to get the check. The food is delicious! We started with the calamari Provençale as a change from traditional fried. It was surprisingly tasty! The sauce was deep and rich with lots of flavors (garlic, onion, Worcestershire) - I recommend it. The meal portions were generous. I had the Veracruz salad - 6 good sized shrimp topping a chopped salad with a balanced amount of vegetable. We shared the Bananas Foster for dessert - prepared table side (it's always a good show) - it was sinfully decadent. This is my third visit and not my last.

    My self and my 3 guest really enjoy the outdoor dining and the food was fantastic. Service personnel was the best, As soon as we arrived they were ready to seat us (it really pays to make your reservations), we got our beverages quickly and they gave us plenty of time to review the menu. After taking our order the waitress refilled our beverages without having to ask and that continued though out the meal. We were not rushed and because it was after the lunch rush we were able to talk and catch up on family. I would not hesitate going they again and again. Would recommend “The Catch” to friends and family for a great place to eat. Would be a great place for a couple to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just a night out.

    This was my third or fourth visit to The Catch in its new location. It's a favorite when going to a game or concert at the nearby Honda Center. Unfortunately on this particular day, there was also an Angels game, and The Catch is right next to Angels Stadium. Very convenient if you're going to the game, but on game days they don't serve some items they say take longer (Fish & Chips?). They also don't serve the sampler sizes of beer from their pretty decent tap selection, which I don't understand. Other than that, food was good as always. I had an excellent Salmon, and the others in our party were quite pleased with their food as well.

    We were there with another couple celebrating our July anniversary's (as we do every year - but never at The Catch). I noted "special occasion" in the comment section when I placed the reservation. Being a Sunday eve and Angel's away; not crowded at all. We were seated in a booth around the corner and at the end, so there were no other tables filled around us and it was a very quiet atmosphere. The service was excellent and the food, wonderful. The 4 of us had a great evening!

    We were there for dinner before our concert at The Grove. I hadn't been since the move to the new location. We had great service, it was fun to watch people out-and- about outside, great ambiance inside and it really seemed like there was a lot of fun activity in the bar. The decor is sleek, but warm. We tried three different entrees and a few appetizers. All yum, and with take-home portions! I will definitely go back soon!

    This was our first time dining here and we had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We started with the lobster bisque and french onion soup which were both very good. Next we had the 8oz sirlion oscar style and the crab was excellent. We also had the swordfish and it was very flavorful and I enjoyed the udon noodles with it. We were actaully too full for desert. I will say they have a good selection of craft beers for ylu to choose from. We enjoyed the wheat apricot and Irish red.

    Wife and I were disappointed. Over priced food and wine menu and only above average food preparation. Grilled artichoke appetizer had to be returned, it was soaking with oil and not eatable. Coconut Jumbo Shrimp appetizer was weak on the coconut part. Will find other fine dining restaurants in North Orange County. Still sad at the closing of Mr. Stox's.

    We dined for the first time at the Catch because we were going to a show at the Grove. Valet parking was a plus. We were seated right away and the fantastic service began. The menu has lots of choice. I had the Sea Bass, my husband the top sirloin steak. Both cooked to perfection. We also had the tableside Caesar Salad. It is worth going to this restaurant for.

    Great food, the surf & turf excellent, service friendly/funny/attentive. This restaurant is next door to the Grove of Anaheim so if you are going to a show this is a must. The bar area was fun and attentive service as well. If you like steak/fish in a up scale dark wood decor this place is what you are looking for. There is an outside dining and sitting area, too. We will be back for sure.

    Found this gem online via TripAdvisor and it couldn't have been a better choice. The service and the impeccable food prepared by the Sous Chef was astonishing. We were there to have one special night since I was able to wisk her away from work. I wanted to make sure she had a night to remember and The Catch did just that. We were seated at the Owners table and given exceptional service with great recommendations by our server Hani. We were checked upon by the chef and the manager. The food was to die for. I had the sirloin with the Alaskan King Crabb and my fiancé had the Chilean Sea Bass with the Sea Scallops. We had the artichoke for our appetizer and the chef was kind enough to prepare us a special dessert. Epic

    I was expecting much better food based on reviews and the prices but alas I was disappointed. The famous Caesar salad was good, not great and the kitchen made the fatal flaw of sending out the entrees while we were in the middle of our salad. Color me crazy but that is not something I can tolerate. The famous Sea Bass was tender, but laying on a bed of two different sauces, make up your mind what you want it to taste like. If your an Angels fan and don't mind dropping 50 bucks for mediocre food then this is the place for you. In LA County it's done differently.

    This was our first time going to the Catch and was very satisfied with it. The server was very nice and personable, and was able to sense our needs without being at our table all the time. Also, the rate at which the dishes were ready and served was perfect. We did not feel rushed eating or get the feeling that food was taking forever. My date and I ordered 1/2 and 1/2 of the oysters on special and they were DELICIOUS! Never having oysters before they went way beyond what I was expecting. I got the Swordfish which was delicious but the noodles were a little to saucy for me and my date got the Ahi Tuna which he greatly enjoyed. We also got their chocolate souffle which was delicious! Over all the oysters was my favorite dish that we had.

    Here on vacation from London and decided to eat at 'The Catch' after reading good reviews. We were not disappointed as the food was seriously good. As a treat our teenage children had the lobster and crab dishes and although they were quite pricey the quality of these dishes was outstanding. I had a very nice sirloin steak and my wife had the signature sea bass dish which were also very good. Total bill was $270 which is on the heavy side but considering we chose the most expensive dishes on the menu and the quality of the food was so good we left very happy indeed. So in summary highly recommended by us !

    We started out with the coconut shrimp appetizer, they were good! I ordered the ahi tuna steak which was cooked rare, it was delicious it was served with rice, baby rainbow carrots and mushrooms with a curry sauce. My husband had their signature dish, the Chilean SeaBass. I had a taste and the fish itself was very good. My husband cleaned his plate which says enough. For dessert we had the chocolate soufflé and the red velvet cake. The chocolate soufflé was so good! The red velvet cake disappointed so much. The outside was hard as a rock and the inside was mushy. We did mention it to our server and they were so great about removing it from our bill and offering us a replacement. Overall it was a delicious meal.

    We went for a special dinner out (don't get out much with 2.5 year old) and were told they don't serve oysters on "game days." It's the #1 reason I took my husband there. I'm pregnant - not many app options (or entrees) for prego women. Strict separation between "fine" dining & casual areas but they made an exception & served me buffalo wings off the casual menu in the fine dining area. I made reservations over a month early & wasn't told about the seating separation & 2 separate menus. Entrees are overpriced. Oh - and they were out of fish & chips (lowest priced entree on the menu) and their famous French onion soup - all at an EARLY 5:30pm reservation. Food we ordered was delicious but I wish our rare night out could have been different.
