Catch 35 Seafood and Premium Steaks is just a short walk from Chicago’s exciting Theatre district. The restaurant the Chicago Sun-Times calls “one of the classiest and most innovative seafood restaurants around” is perfect for a pre- or post-show dinner. Also, when Theatre patrons dine at Catch 35, the cost of valet will be deducted from the guest check.

The menu offers variety, appeal and flavor with the city’s freshest seafood and steaks, such as Chilean sea bass, Szechwan scallops, seared Yellow Fin tuna, a bone-in rib eye and a chef’s cut New York strip. Whether you’re dining for business or pleasure, every experience is special at Catch 35.

Have stayed at the Renaissance Chicago (next door to Catch 35) on multiple occasions but this was my first time in this restaurant and I will definitely be back. We tried two soups (the Bouillabaisse and the Crab Bisque) and both were excellent as was the Wedge Salad. My wife's Chilean Sea Bass was prepared perfectly. My Ecuadorian Maui Maui was slightly toasty and dry (probably related to how thin it was) but generally spicy and good. Our side order of Mashed Potatoes was probably the best I have eaten in my 60 years, including those previously homemade by my mother. The Pecan Pie was also top notch.

Service was very good but declined slightly as the number of diners increased.

Appropriately priced.

Food was very good - Wish I had more appetite to order more! Seats were in the middle of the room so not very comfortable - Would have preferred window or corner seats (next time would mention that in the reservation). Desert (Bread Pudding) was a pleasant surprise as I didn't have expectation.

My wife's lamb was excellent, my Tuna was. Our other 2 guests enjoyed theirs. The jazz trio was nice but we were seated a bit too far to enjoy them. My wife loved her cocktail. My first old Fashioned was not quite sweet enough while the 2nd was too sweet-so the drinks were inconsistent. Server was nice.

We went before catching Hamilton at CBIC. Great proximity for a place to eat before a show. Nice selection and very reasonably priced options for a nice evening out.

I took a group of friends I only see once a year even though I’d never dined there before. It was fantastic & everyone enjoyed it. The food was amazing, our waiter was wonderful, and the dessert- wow! Save room for dessert. Highly recommend this place for any occasion.

So disappointed First, took 45 minutes to get our food after ordering and it was not that crowded. Waiter didn't come by to even check on us or let us know there was a delay. We couldn't even find him. Then when the food did come out, my sea bass was drenched in butter. It was beyond disgusting. Took another 15 minutes to get our waiter... at which time, rest of table finished eating and I just wanted to go home. NO point reordering at that point. I had to ask for it to be taken off the bill. I made it clear on the reservation and then again when i got to the restaurant that we were celebrating my aunt's birthday. They brought a dessert she ordered but no candle (which I saw them bring our for others).

The manager gave a card for free app and dessert next time. REALLY???? That's the best you can do for an awful night? This place has changed. I don't see ever going back. Such an awful experience and way to ruin a special night for my aunt.

My favorite restaurant for lunch in Chicago. Great service but fell down on the food this time. Poke was less than adequate.

Had dinner on a Sunday evening after theatre matinee. The entire experience was wonderful. Great food -every entree was flawless (sea bass, shrimp scampi, haddock, and mixed grill), ambiance was intimate and, because it was a Sunday evening, noise level was good - we could hear each other. Service was very attentive.

It was a birthday dinner on an unusually cold November night. We loved the live music and the setting of the restaurant, lots of space between tables so that you did not feel crammed in. The food was amazing!!!! My husband, who is a very picky eater, inhaled the sea bass as did I. We will return, for sure, when we come to Chicago next time!

The food was very good and there was enough of a selection for both seafood and non-seafood eaters. We had the mixed grill (lobster, shrimp, salmon), the tuna poke and the filet. Wine selection was decent but not extensive.

Our waiter was nice, but seemed a little bothered; but the hostess was very nice, pleasant and welcoming.

The location was perfect since we were staying right next door at the Renaissance.

All in all, a good dining experience.

Catch 35 always pours a strong drink, and is hands-down the freshest seafood you can find in town.
