Hi,
I was there last night but received a note from OpenTable that I missed my reservation. Not sure why you have an impression I was not there.
Apparently OpenTable reservation for Catch is more a suggestion rather than a call for action.
I was there on time and had to wait almost an hour to get seated.
Deeply dissapinted with this service.

I have been to Catch many times and the food is always incredible! One of my favorites restaurants in NYC.

The only thing that has been very annoying is you put the last bite of food on your fork and your plate is already being taken away. Give me a second. Let me put the food in my mouth and chew my last bite please! It didn't just happen once. My girlfriends and I shared at least 5 or 6 apps and it happened every single time. We had to ask twice for sauces and wasabi to be brought back to the table.

We go out and spend money to enjoy our time together. Let us relax.

We arrived for our reservation at 8:15 and were not seated until 10:30....the we checked in with the hostess every half an hour and she could give us no indication of it was going to be 20 seconds or an hour later.

They made us wait 45 minutes after we had booked an 8:15 reservation. Place was mobbed at the bar with congestion all the way back to elevators. My petite date was jostles or pushed Least 7x in 45 minutes while waiting for table. Finally seated at 9 pm after begging hostesses 3 time. The occasional was a friend's birthday, and the highly amplified musician in the dining areas made conversation almost impossible. Main courses were good but side dishes were highly sweetened and almost inedible. Sever was superb and attentive. We left a good tip for him but can't think of a reason to go back. Drunken couple was arguing in the staircase as we were leaving...

Catch was great fun when we eventually found it as it was above ground level.
The black label burgers were moorish and plentiful.
The spicy maki roll was delicious except on the small side.
Service was friendly and prompt.

My husband and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was fantastic. The complimentary glass of champaign and small treat from the chef were a very nice surprise. The wine list was very extensive and wonderful. Everything we ordered was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

This restaurant has a beautiful main floor and another floor upstairs with an outside terrace. The upstairs must be awesome in good weather. It was a birthday dinner for us and they gave us the worst table in the restaurant. Had to speak to manager to get moved to another table. Food was really good. Service was spotty. They did not seem to have the basics down.

Got there 10 mins before my reservation, First hostess wanted to sit me in a very crowded area for a business meeting. We asked for a table with a view and was told the wait would be 20 mins even though there clearly was empty booths. So I asked for a manager. The manager found a table near a side window.

I sat down, my server took my order for water and iced coffee, some guy brought it and was leaning on our table with his elbows as if we were friends or knew him when I told him the iced coffee didn't look right, it looked real cloudy and tasted like chocolate milk not coffee. Made me feel very uncomfortable and it was quite rude for a server to lean on a customer's table.

My server never came back to take my food order although she serviced every table around me so I left as I was on crunch time before having to head to airport. When I went to pay for my bill at the bar because I couldn't find my server at that time, the bartender told me rudely and loud that only my server could ring me out. So I walked out the door after the 2nd hostess who was very nice tried to find the server and then she goes, "the iced coffee is on me, don't worry about it.". You damn right it's on you for your terrible customer service. I frequent Catch LA alot and never have I received such horrible , disrespectful service as I have at the Catch NYC. Maybe one day the service will improve, idk but for now I am not interested in returning.

They constantly overbook and make you "wait" at the bar for a very long time. With a 9pm booking, you are lucky to sit down by 10pm... always the same story.

Waiting 30mins when you have a reservation is annoying- the women at the front desk wouldn’t give any estimate of how long our table would be and we’re not very friendly or helpful. They just give you a buzzer and tell you to wait. Once we sat down the food was great but the service is just not as good as the one in LA

I cannot recommend this place. We were seated very late and the service was nothing to cheer about. Again, being reached over to serve someone else is something I find probelmatic espeically when the waiter could just walk around me. And, the meal I had was blan.....no taste. I asked for some Saracha to add flavor and it did not help much. Most the biggest problem was the noise. Iti is loud...very loud....too loud. It was an interesting eperience but one I would not repeat.

Catch is a great restaurant and my go-to. I really love the food and the ambiance. Only thing I hate is how the hostesses are rude and inefficient. They are not helpful or attentive at all, they need to learn some manners and customer service skills!! Definitely come here for the food and the vibe.

We reserved the earliest dinner time on a Saturday for 5:30pm bc we would have a one month old toddler in tow. The staff was great enough to honor my rez request to stick us in a corner seat for two...this All only worked bc if the time bc by the time we left at 7:15, the place was extra loud and bustling. Service was good...the staff kind of insist upon themselves as being awesome, but we mostly ignored that. Manager was genuinely nice tho and stopped by to check on us. Food was truly terrific...nothing we had was bad. Mac and cheese: phenomenal. Sushi: delicious. But the true shocker that blew us away was the cashew sweet potato side dish: delicious. Value was decent...we knew our bill for two including adult drinks would be around $180 sheckles. Go for the food!...go early if you can to avoid the pretentious stuff...and enjoy yourself.
