Fabulous night out! The ambiance was inviting, great wine list, the seafood phenomenal, and the service impeccable! The wait staff kept our dinner at a comfortable pace but got us to the theater on time. To add to the evening, live music, subtle not too loud, perfect to dine with. Solidified my eminent return!!!!

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was wonderful, the music was really good m, however, they did not play very long and took quite a few breaks in the three hours that they were performing. I specifically chose it for the food and the live music, but the food made up for it .

We have been here before and each time we have had a great time! We have ordered from the Prix Fixe menu each time! This is perfect before the theater! This time I ordered the Mahi-Mahi which was delicious! The Haddock was great! Each time we go to a theater near there we will be at Catch 35! Carlos (our waiter) was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable of the menu!

Always love the atmosphere at Catch 35. Catch 35 is a short walk to the theater district and they will discount the valet parking charge from the bill if you mention you are heading to the theater after dinner.

Seafood selection was outstanding. Presentation of entree selections was appealing and enticing. The Mahi was very good with just the right amount of blackening and a very generous portion. The lentils as an accompaniment was perfect. The poke bowl was another delicious entree with a perfect amount of tuna. The seafood chowder was very tasty. Our server was helpful in explaining the dishes and in reccomending menu items. We enjoyed our dinner. Noise level was a bit high due to a large table of maybe 14 -16 seated just after us. Would have appreciated a quieter area.

First time here. Phenomenal service. John B was our server...request him. It's like a show before your theatre show. The food was amazing. Swordfish Oscar style with bernaise was delicious. Great atmosphere. Quiet but loud enough to have a conversation where everyone doesn't hear you. Easily a new favorite for seafood. Will be back.

Overall experience was great! Mussels appetizer and oysters on the half shell were delicious! We shared the 2.5lb Maine lobster meal - lobster was overcooked and the meat was on the dry side. Still OK, but for the price, expect better.

Three of us for late lunch -- three different entrees, each wonderful. Fish and chips
is outstanding... a hint of cornmeal and deep fried to perfection.

Wine selection by the glass splendid for a lunch tipple!

Music a little loud (when will Chicago learn that people want to have a conversation not a shouting match?)

Very good. My date and I enjoyed the scallops appetizer, baby lettuce salad and the lentil bean side. I had the blackened swordfish which was also tasty, however, and the only reason why the server received 4 stars, had quite a kick to it. He was very knowledgeable of everything and even recommended the swordfish, however we asked if the blackened was spicy and he said it was "just slightly spicy" It was much more than that. I still enjoyed it but too spicy usually hides a bit of the flavor and not what I expected. My date had the atlantic salmon and said it was very good. Great service and food and we will go back.

Catch 35 is a downtown gem, consistently excellent seafood. The atmosphere is elegant and quiet, but not stuffy. Conveniently located close to many Chicago hotels. We have been going there for many years, as it is close to the Goodman Theater and the other Loop theaters.

A comfortable, white tablecloth place which serves great food. Our server, Ann, was a real professional who offered recommendations which were spot on. The sea bass was done to perfection and ranks among the top two or three we have ever eaten. We are not dessert people, but Ann suggested the toffee cake and it was great --- not overly sweet, just the right ending to our meal.

Hello,
I only have two complaints the first was that the valet parked my car at the very corner of the street where someone could of had hit it, and even do a hit and run, but nothing happen of any sort but the fact that this could of happen was very disappointed, and there was a very long white/blonde hair in one of the dinner plate, yes they prepared a new diner plate but my daughter no longer wanted to finish her dinner for that she took it home, but her dessert was on the house, other then this it was nice, the staff was great.
