    The food and service was outstanding. Definitely deserves a 5 star. Was expecting more casual dining since it's right next to the Anaheim Stadium and The Grove. It wasn't stuffy and would be a place to take friends, family or have a business lunch.

    Service was slow, server did not get to table for 10 minutes after seated. During dinner 3 times had to flag down the waiter to ask where our drinks were. Waiter started dinner order by informing us much of the Catch menu was unavailable. There were no Oysters, Swordfish, Fish and Chips, French Onion Soup, no menu specials, etc. Surprised so many items were missing. When food was received the Shrimps and Grits was not good, the 16 ounce bone in New York Steak was Sub Par. The Bread rolls were never served, we had to ask for rolls repeatedly, when they finally brought them they did not drop off a basket at the table they instead only gave a roll to those who asked for one and then left with the rest. It felt like the bread was being rationed

    We made a reservation for dinner on Friday night not realizing that there were events going on at the local venues. We feel that the hostess taking our reservation should of told us that it was an event night, and the menu would be cut back. We were so disappointed that everything we go to the Catch to eat was not available. Tableside Caesar Salad-not available. French Onion Soup-not available. Fish&Chips-not available. Really disappointed. The manager was very nice, and offered us a gift card to come back. We will come back. The hostess needs to explain to people making reservations that it is a different menu on an event night.

    Drinks were stiff and tasty at the bar. My husband and I had dinner here before a show at The Grove across the street. Very convenient location. We shared an appetizer and entree. Our appetizer was the tuna tartare. Fresh ingredients, different flavor. My husband enjoyed, but I thought was just okay. We ordered the scallops and pork belly for our entree. The scallops were cooked very well but the entire dish was super salty! The colored carrots were the best part on the plate. Dessert was great, creme brûlée. Expensive restaurant for the food to be disappointing.

    This restaurant has an incredible menu for both seafood and meat dishes. We had the beet salad and wedge to start and the salmon and scallops dishes for our entrées. The food was very good and beautifully presented. The waiter was well informed and very nice. The food arrived without any significant delay. The wine and cocktail menus were detailed and had a number of items that are not seen too often. Although attached to a sports bar, the seating area was quiet and conversation was easy. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a great meal.

    We were a party of four stopping at the restaurant before the game. We usually just stop by and wait for a table outside for some fun. This time we decided to make a reservation. It was nice not having to find a table but it would have been nice to be able to order the tacos and some of the happy hour fun food.

    I had never really considered trying cioppino outside of San Francisco, but I did here, and it was outstanding. Everything was cooked perfectly. The rest of our party loved their meals, too. Catch's beer list is incredible and the wine drinkers were very pleased with their available selections. Parking (once you find it) is really convenient, too. Had no complaints about the pricing; very appropriate considering the portions. Should we ever return to Anaheim, we are determined to come back here. Only marks against it was service. It wasn't bad service, just seemed discombobulated even on a slow night. It seemed like a new staff member was coming to our table every 10 minutes. Maybe that's Catch's schtick, I don't know. Enjoyable nonetheless

    Hard to find parking, the self parking gate was not working, so we ended up forced to park with valet, which is not too bad for $6. The food is good, but feels over priced. The signature sea bass was good, but not exceptional, especially considering the $39.99 price tag. Server was not friendly but not rude either... but it did made us feel that he did not really "care" about our table of 2. The floor manager was friendly, came to ask how we were doing and if he could help us make anything better. The one big issue we had was the bread... we did not get our bread till we FINISHED our dinner... The ambiance is good, but you can find a better place for what they are charging. Their sister restaurant Taps in Brea is excellent all around.

    We went for Valentines Day. They had a special menu which was pre-Fixed with an appetizer, entrée and desert for each guest. My Wife had the lightly Blackened Mahi Mahi, Lobster Bisque and Rasberry Drizzled cheesecake. I had the Fritale Sole Meniure, Kusshi Oysters on the half shell and Dessert Trio, (cheesecake, Chocalate and Crème Broulet. We shared all the dishes and they were all exceptional. We had a bottle of New Zealand, (Marlborough County) New Harbor Savignon Blanc which complemented the meal very well. Our Waitress was also exceptional.

    We had a frustrating time with our waitress, who wouldn't bring us tap water until the fourth time we requested it because she was trying to upsell us the sparkling. Brought the incorrect wine, meal, and dessert, and we had to flag down another waitress to assist us each time because she would disappear. That experience aside, the meal was one of the best I've had, and by far the best meal we had during our business trip in Anaheim. I highly recommend the au gratin potatoes! I was also thrilled that two out of three desserts offered were gluten free.
