    I will focus on Food, Ambiance and Service. Food was pretty good although my Brussel Sprouts were drenched in oil. My entree however, the angry lobster, was absolutely fantastic. Service was so-so. I noticed our usual server was not in. The server was a "rookie". She took orders for four tables right after the next. So as we were the first to place the order, it took her until after receiving the fourth table's order to bring us our beverage of choice. I've never seen this in the restaurant industry. Why should I have to wait until after you go to several tables to fulfill my order request. This unfortunately set the tone for entire evening. Lastly, ambiance was really good; that is until I asked the restaurant for their WiFi password. I. Ended WiFi to send a text message. First they told me I had to hand the server my phone and she would need to take it to the back and have the manager insert the Wi-Fi passcode. I found that outrageous. I went to the bar and asked the bartender for the wifi password, he told me they couldn't give it to me because wifi was integrated with their back office systems. I've been dining at fine dining establishments for years and this is the first time a restaurant refused to offer up a WiFi passcode. It will be some time before I return to Catch Restaurant.

The staff was extremely personable, and delivered their services with a smile which made for such a great experience.

    Amy, our server was terrific and attentive. Drinks were good and not overpriced. Caesar salad was great and my ahi tuna entree was delicious. My husband got ribs and shrimp. The shrimps were plump and done well. The only disappointment was the rib—way too fatty. So stick with seafood and you won’t be disappointed.

    Two booked for Tuesday evening. The outside was dark and appeared empty at 7:15. At table, after a drink at the bar, our servers advised that three of the six apps were unavailable. The menu is outdated, limited and anything but modern. Boring would be the term I felt. Three orders of raw oysters (very nice) were to be followed with two bowls of chowder. Server came out of kitchen informing that there was only one serving left. My wife took that. Smokey a bit heavy on the salt. OK for a diner chowder. Hers was followed by crabcakes at market price. Mine was a grilled lettuce salad. Nothing from the menu struck me. They were out of two of the seven or eight entrées. The grilled lettuce came out room temp. It was sent back. After tasting the crab cakes ordered by my wife I thought they would be safe. Mine came out warm and not cooked thru...rushed by kitchen I'm guessing. They were not cooked properly and a bit creamy. No one from management stopped by our table and asked how things were going. The establishment is closed on Mondays. Weekend business as it is I question the age of the goods placed on my table this Tuesday. Possibly resupplied on Wed or Thurs. $325 with tip. I don't think so. Bar service was slow. Silverware was stuck to table on arrival probably from the cleaner used. Don't go there. Eat elsewhere.

    Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. We ordered 4 drinks, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. The bill was around $165.00 and worth it. We will be coming back with friends and family. We feel this is one of the top three restaurants in the Wilmington area. Do not let the location in a funky strip mall fool you.

We were so full we had to take dessert to go, but ahhh that coconut cake was awesome. Service was impeccable as always. This has always been our favorite restaurant since moving to Wilmington.
