    Our server was truly exceptional. I put in comments that I had a vegan guest and they were prepared and the chef stated they would make whatever she wanted. My guest were visiting from out of town and said they would definitely return

    We were celebrating my birthday with friends. The waitstaff were attentive and made us feel at home. My wife had the Maryland crab cake and i had the seafood Cobb salad. Both were perfectly prepared. My wife chose the scollop and Shrimp risotto . The seafood were prepared with care and my wife said the risotto was perfect. I chose the Halibut as my entre. We recently moved to Chicago from Boston and to say my entry was perfectly prepared would be sn understatement. If you really enjoy seafood then Catch 35 is the place to go. You will not be disappointed.

    Everything was fabulous. Eric was a great server who made a wonderful wine recommendation. The food was absolutely delicious, I’ve been here several times before and it never fails. Scallops and crab cake appetizer were tasty and great, shrimp bisque was hot and creamy with plenty of shrimp. Boyfriend said the Chilean sea bass was A+, my braised short ribs were melt-in-your-mouth, and lobster tail add-on was fantastic. And high marks also for the cheesecake and key lime pie (which we took home). I have nothing bad to say, I think Catch 35 is a great value too, and the music, Eric Hochberg Trio, was very enjoyable! Can’t wait to go back!

    Ambiance, service, kindness, and even food allergy safe for me -- all stellar ! I had eaten here in December w family and the food was fantastic. Although my husband's Tuna was fabulous, I found the risotto w shrimp and scallops to be lacking flavor. Scallops were heavenly, butter-seared, but risotto, despite the pesto and shrimp were so mildly seasoned that I wanted to add something. Everything else was amazing. Beat salad, yumm!! Thank you!

    It seems like it has been hard to have a restaurant experience these days where the service and food are great at the same time, but we had that for our dinner last night! It was great to be taken care of so well and our dishes were amazing. They paid attention to our reservation notes as well which a lot of restaurants don’t do anymore. We’ll be back next time we’re in chicago !

    Catch 35 was quiet during our Sunday evening visit, but the upside was that we received attentive service from Rocio and rapid turnaround from the kitchen. I enjoyed the Yellowfin Tuna Steak, which was lightly seared on the outside and like sashimi on the inside. Our table was adjacent to the seafood case, where we could gaze at the offerings throughout our dinner. We had an enjoyable experience with good food and efficient service.

    Catch 35 is one of my favorite restaurants and tonight was no exception. We arrived a little early so we headed to the bar for a drink. There was a combo playing in the bar area that was quite nice. Our server was amazing. He immediately asked us if we had a theater time we needed to hit (we did) and had an excellent suggestion on wine and an entree. The food was excellent as always. Just a very nice experience. Enjoyed it immensely.

    We had the tuna appetizer which was fantastic and everyone loved. For entrees: Our 7 year old had the kid’s salmon which she thoroughly enjoyed, our 11 year old had the poké bowl which she loved (and the rest of us also enjoyed several bites of because it was a large portion!), my husband had the tuna, and I had the sea bass — both of our dishes were delicious, as was the filet medallion we added to split. We took advantage of the half price bottles of wine since it was Monday and got the Harvey and Harriet red blend. It was great that they offer to cork and bag unfinished bottles to take. We were very pleased with the quality of the food, and we were impressed with the speed in which all of the food was delivered! Our server was very conscientious about how kiddos tend to need food asap, and offered to get their entrees going while my husband and I were still deciding on ours. All around a delicious and memorable experience.

    Our friend recommended several restaurants, and we chose Catch 35 for it's menu choices. The restaurant had an unpretentious upscale, old-school feel, nothing super trendy. My parents would have been comfortable here. The food and service were excellent. While not inexpensive, I found it to be a solid value for the high quality. Dishes were prepared simply with high-quality ingredients. My son had the lobster roll, with fries. I had seared scallops on a bed of sauteed fresh spinach, and a tender short rib for my "surf and turf". Hardly adventurous dining, but a straightforward delicious meal. Our warm Sticky Toffee Pudding with a scoop of ice cream was the perfect sweet treat to finish. A great meal that could have been served in 1964, as well as 2024.
