Best waiter I’ve had at a restaurant in years. We were catching a play and he was very helpful.

The food is great. I've eaten there several times and the food has always been good. Service was off. Host wanted to seat our 4 top at the absolutely farthest and darkest table in the house, despite multiple 4 tops available. Why? Server knew we were attending a show later in the evening, but still struggled to get food and beverage out in a timely manner. One of our party ordered a beer mid-meal. 15 minutes later our server apologized because the keg was being switched over. Another 15 minutes pass and our server brings out the beer menu because they're apparently now out of that beverage. Really? At that point, the beer should have been comped.

Still, I'll go back. This was just an anomaly in my past positive experiences.

Ann was our waitress, as she has been on several of our earlier visits. She is such a great representative of the restaurant. Informative and engaging, she adds to the pleasure of a fine meal.

A longtime favorite for business lunch. The food is always excellent, and on this occasion I enjoyed the Crustacean Cobb salad, which had very generous portions of crab, lobster and shrimp. Service is consistently top-notch.

They were very willing to accommodate my changes. They said they could prepare anything just how I wanted it which I thought was really excellent and one of the main reasons I will keep going. They had my favorite wine that wasn't on the list, they didn't bring the whole fish (which is how it was listed on the menu) and they changed the sauce for me.

My daughter brought me to Chicago to see Phantom of the Opera. We came for dinner and immediately we liked it without being seated. The energy was great and the atmosphere was nice.
Our server was very tentative to us and even the management was quick to help when I kept dropping my napkin off my lap, because I was wearing a silky pair of pants. I will definitely visit this establishment again.

I have been to Catch 35 many times over the past 15+ years; however, this was the first dining experience for my daughter. We wanted to choose two different salads, main entrees and desserts that we could share, and the wait staff was very accommodating of that request. Many different wait staff served us during our meal, and each one was fantastic. Our head waiter made great suggestions for every course, especially the Mixed Grill as one of our two entrees and the Gingerbread Gelato and Stick Toffee Cake as our two desserts. The Brussel Sprouts that came with the Mixed Grill were one of the best things that we have ever eaten.

Finally, the restaurant allows you to keep your car with their valet if you attend one of the local theatre productions after your meal. Not only that, but they provide a $16 credit on your meal bill to offset the cost of the parking.

All in all, a phenomenal experience from start to finish! Cannot wait to come back!

Food was delicious although they did not have anything vegetarian except a plain salad or mashed potatoes. She ordered broccoli and got a broccoli salad leaves. Definitely disappointed in there not including vegetarian dishes on their menu. Sea bass was delicious but was extremely small portion for $42!

We've been going to Catch 35 for our anniversary for years, but this was our last time. The service, menu, and food have all gone way down since our last visit. The menu was scattered and missing a lot of the great seafood options that used to be there. There's a weird mix of Asian, seafood and 'farmhouse' items--none of which were done well. Even basic lobster was over salted. The waiter was friendly, but he made some mistakes. The level of service and food used to be top notch and well worth the price, however that is not the case anymore.

Best wedge and salmon we’ve ever had! And we eat a lot of fish at lovely places. Gluten free bread was a delicious surprise!
