Really fresh ingredients cooked perfectly. The octopus, fried chicken and salads were very unique and incredibly good. The service was fantastic as well

I went to Cafe 122 with a few girlfriends for dinner and drinks after work. Food & drinks were great and the server was very helpful and accomodating. I hear the brunch is good, so i'll be back to try that next!

We had a reservation for a birthday brunch on a (non-holiday) Thursday morning and though they made a mistake with our order, the food was quite good. The service was adequate as well, but the wait times for (1) placing our order (2) receiving our food and (3) getting our bill took a crazy amount of time. Ultimately, our first visit wasn't the best.

Went for a double-date on Valentine's Day. Set menu was fine and reasonably priced. Staff and restaurant are clearly trained and prepared for Saturday brunch. Felt like eating casual bistro style food in a Denny's. The front of house staff and dining room need a serious upgrade.

Was sitting at the table for 15 minutes and no one came to serve us. When they did, they didn’t acknowledge that no one came to serve us. It was Valentine’s Day however they weren’t very better

The restaurant was not busy, by 830pm we were the only table. Drinks were very slow and inconsistent in quality - some were excellent, some mediocre at best (dark & stormy rum and coke ish) Share plates inconsistent as well: chicken was the stand out crispy, very well seasoned and interesting tastes - tuna no seasoning bland, needed wasabi garlic something, beef cheeks same nothing social, least value duck breat - not a share plate but apparently an entree not worth the price and very bland. The waiter was nice but very new and his timing was awful. We wont go again.

Waited over 45mins for food to arrive. No apology, no explanation. Did not try to remedy the situation. Not impressed.

Had a birthday dinner at Catch on a Saturday evening for Dine Out Vancouver and it was a great decision. All options on their Dine Out menu were something I would order, and at the table we shared everything because it was all so tastey. I've been there before for brunch and was not disappointed. Great, attentive staff and the ambiance and feel of the place is awesome. Cool cocktail menu as well! 12/10 would recommend.

We went for Dine Out Vancouver and had a great experience from the moment we walked into the door, where instead of a typical crammed loud environment, the staff had provided a cozy environment where you could feel like the entire restaurant was just for you. The food was elegant and delicious, and the cocktails were heavenly. We were even give great tips along the way to better enjoy or dining experience.

Catch 122 is not simply food you order on a menu, but it's an experience. A delightful one at that!

Very limited Dine-Out menu. No seafood entree. Good sturgeon hotdog, but a disappointment on the whole.

Came here for the dine out festival. The sturgeon hot dog was okay, the vegetable root tart was mostly pastry than vegetables. It wasn't that busy, yet the staff still seemed quite unattentive. The candle on our table was not lit the whole night and it was very obvious each time they visited our table, but nobody bothered to light it. Our water glasses were never filled until asked to. The lamb neck I had was so overly salted I just couldn't finish it...

We had 8 of us before the theatre. They took good care of us and made sure we got what we needed. The food was delicious, tapas style small plates mostly, and a great mix of flavours.

The charming atmosphere complimented the delicious food wonderfully. I was warned that it can get busy and hence went at 9am, resulting in a calm, moderately quiet place to eat. Thoroughly enjoyed my time here and can recommend the pudding french toast.

I would not recommend this place for a lunch break. Even though I had made a reservation, it took us 10 minutes to get our order taken down, and the food itself took nearly 30 minutes, which the server told us was normal. When the food did finally come, the portion sizes were so minuscule that I left very hungry afterwards. I will not be joining them for lunch again.

Lively inside. They've recently changed the menu, so what I hoped for from the online menu was no longer available. Gluten free options were limited, as were tapas, which are still "under renovation". I'd love to see the new menu online...

Very good and original meals. Was expecting to see bigger portions considering the price (reasonable for a good dinner) but the portions are like entrées. The rest is quite great.

I’m not a fan of their new menu - they’ve made their portions smaller making you choose salad or hash; I got hash but the potatoes were really dry and their poached eggs aren’t runny. I’m usually a huge fan of this place but today I was quite disappointed with the food.
