    My friends and I went to Catch 35 for Restaurant Week in Chicago. We had their pre-fixed lunch menu. We all had different menu items and agreed that it was excellent. Service was excellent as well.

    We went for restaurant week and also ordered off the regular menu. I had the Maryland crab cake which was great and a Cesar salad which was good as well. From the restaurant week menu I had the Cajun seafood gumbo, crab and shrimp stuffed salmon with Brussel sprouts and key lime pie for desert. The gumbo was okay, just okay. The salmon was not what I expected. I tasted no shrimp, tasted some crab but mostly tasted the cheese mixture and the Brussel sprouts were overly sweet, too sweet and not crispy at all. The food Overall was good but could have been better. Our waiter Angel was amazing though! And the drink he recommended was great as well! Really enjoyed him.

    Food was quite delicious!! Went for Restaurant Week and I’m glad the chef got the opportunity to show off their skills. Had the salmon stuffed with shrimp and crab with whipped potatoes:fantastic. Cold Platter to start with shrimp and oysters followed by some chive biscuits. Highly recommend, less history than Shaw’s but just as tasty.

    Great food, large portions for a Seafood restaurant, and for Restaurant Week. Only issue was how fast the food seemed to come. We were finished in one hour ! I understand that we might have been going to the theatre, but it was too fast for us. We sat around afterwards, and there didn't seem to be pressure to leave, so the very, very fast service seemed a bit odd. We would have appreciated a pause between courses.

    Loved the atmosphere/live jazz music. Came here for restaurant week - appetizers were amazing but we were dissatisfied with our main courses. I had the catch 35 and it was very plain, underwhelming. Could’ve plated it better . Dessert was good!

    Food was excellent! Had the blackened salmon & crispy Brussel sprouts 🤤 Our waitress was horrible! Very short with us and just not a good server at all! She would be the only reason I wouldn’t want to go back unfortunately. I believe her name was Karen and I’m a person of color so go figure 🫤.

    Restaurant Week lunch was a treat. Service was professional despite an almost full restaurant. The grilled fish tacos were a melange of flavors and worth ordering again. The gumbo was a good starter. Cheesecake seemed to be ordered by lots of people based on plates passing the table...also worth ordering again. Don't miss Catch 35!

    Didn’t know about this hidden gem off wacker. Went with them being featured in Chicago Restaurant Week! Love that we were able to try their menu at a discounted rate and I would come back here without the discount. My husband who is not a steak or crab lover per se, tried the dish “steak cake” which was a small filet medallion and crab cake and he stated it was phenomenal by far one of the best steaks he has ever had! I went with the “catch 35” which was : salmon, shrimp, lobster tail and whipped potatoes , SO GOOD! They played an eclectic playlist I heard Ashanti and JLO . Can’t wait to go back.

    This was my first time participating in “Restaurant Week” and I was very pleased. We went for lunch and I had the Shrimp Bisque, Fish Sandwich and Key Lime Pie. Everything was delicious and filling. I only ate half of my sandwich and had the other half for dinner. The service was very good and it made for a pleasant lunch and afternoon with my friend.

    We went to Catch 35 for the first time. Thank you Chicago Restaurant Week. We sat in the front area with the jazz band. It was a very enjoyable experience, similar to a supper club vibe. Our dinner was excellent. The steak and cake and the stuffed salmon. Just the right portions for us. The only downside was, when the gentleman at the front desk had his back turned, three or four adults and children came into the restaurant and started soliciting diners for money.

    Excellent meal! I can see why it was difficult to get a reservation for dinner on Restaurant Week. We had the pre fixe $59 dinner and the dishes were interesting and well presented. We had the smoked shrimp and cold plate with shrimp and oysters for starters, the mixed grill (salmon, shrimp, lobster tail) and the steak and crab cake (which was very soft in texture, more like a crab pile than a cake), Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes, and key lime pie and triple threat chocolate cheesecake. Everything was amazing except the crab cake was just ok. Don’t skip dessert. It was so worth it. Although it was quite busy, we had a nice booth in the back and could easily carry on a conversation and be heard, something that can be tough to do in some restaurants due to noise volume. More upscale than casual vibe. Food was out quickly but we were not rushed. Has a 5:15pm reservation and made it to a 7:00pm show. Highly recommend.

    We went to Catch 35 for Restaurant week menu. Great selections and great value. The food was really good and so was the service. We didn’t have to wait very long for any of the food. The chocolate cheesecake was excellent! We tried a few items off of the menu. Standout dishes were the smoked shrimp, Maryland crab cake, salmon with stuffed shrimp and filet mignon medallions. We will definitely come back again!
