The food was great, and our server in particular was wonderful. However, the front table staff was very rude and dismissive. We also waited for 10 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. Overall a good experience though.

I used to love this place but tonight the service was terrible. We waited 30 min for the table even when we had a reservation. The entree arrived almost an hour after we finished the appetizers, we waited more than 20 minutes for the check. They didn’t even apologized for the bad service.

Although the servers are polite, the service is poor. Even with reservation, we waited almost 40 minutes to sit down, everything we ordered took too long and the waitress forgot what we ordered and we had to ask many times. The food is a delight, but overpriced for the poor service that is offered.

I was here in New York and took some colleagues to this restaurant and we all had a fantastic night out.
Catch has a very vibrant and buzzy atmosphere. The service is quick and friendly and the staff are very nice.
Its also a wonderful place to people watch which created fun discussion amongst our group.

Its not super cheap but you do have a great time

I have been enjoying the Catch atmosphere for a long time BUT this time that wasn't great.

I have booked the table for party of 3 on Sunday Dec10 at 8.00pm and my friend went there before be and ı was on my way. One of my friends is in 6 months of pregnancy and they weren't seated by giving an excuse for not being present of 3. I had to call the restaurant and asked them to be seated.

Our evening started with the stress that we did not deserve. we are making reservations for not have that type of problems. I guess Catch reception management needs to be more polite and respectful.

This place is a must-visit! It is upstairs above Sephora and has a super comfortable chic atmosphere. The food and service were both wonderful. My husband and I shared the chicken lettuce cups, mussels and wagyu beef tacos and they were all delicious. This place is not in a crazy tourist spot, so it was a nice change from the usual crazy busy crazy loud restaurants we pick in Midtown.

Extremely disappointed about my visit at Catch. First of all, I wasn’t feeling the Melania Trump Christmas decor. I paid $140 for 3 appetizers. It was overpriced and the only good thing was the free bread that they offered. The service was great, the manager was wonderful but I felt like I was being watched by other staff memebers. (Not going to make it a “race thing”, but it could’ve been due to color and age. They definitely thought I was younger than I look). But I did not feel comfortable. Also, I requested that the desert I ordered say “Happy birthday Neeresha” (I mentioned it twice !) , and they didn’t even do that. I could’ve just went to Tao. But you live and you learn.

The food and or wine choice was amazing. The meal was exceptional. At the same time, when you are looking for an amazing experience, you want the whole package. We would have liked our silverware changed between courses and our table cleaned between meals.

Very good ambiance, with good lighting and vibe. Crowded but not uncomfortably so. Some dishes were on point (e.g., spiced cashew sweet potatoes were a tasty side), and some were very subpar (e.g., crispy chicken bao buns tastes like a dollar menu chicken sandwich that I didn't want to finish). They do mix a good Moscow Mule. Overall, pricey for what you get.

We met friends for lunch at Catch a few days ago. Food was super! We all did the prix fixe lunch for $36. It is a very good value given three courses and compared to the menu prices. We also ordered the truffle fries since they were so highly rated. Nothing disappointed, but it was a lot of food. Service was great. Lunch was served on the 4th floor which must be fun in the summer given the balcony. Catch is a bit hard to find ... above Sephora and actually the entrance is on 13 st, not Ninth Ave as its address. The entrance is highlighted by trees, lights and a sign - very pretty as are the fragrant winter decorations the through a long hall to the elevators.

We had to wait 40mins for our reserved table which was fine, it was 10pm. What I did not appreciate was how extremely rude the lady at the front desk was to me when I could not hear where she was trying to direct us, maybe I caught her at a bad/busy moment but it left me feeling irritated throughout the whole dinner. It is crazy busy and loud and I didn’t like the atmosphere, it’s too edgy for me.

Great Place! Slight issue with the table but the staff fixed it quickly and happy found us a place for 8 rather then the six person table we original we’re sat at.

I had gone previously with my friend for the Gilt-y brunch, and it was absolutely outstanding. Amazing food, great service. We loved it. When we went back this time, they updated the menu, and it was so obvious that they had chosen the cheapest things off the menu to offer for the Gilt brunch. There was only one thing on the menu that had seafood (an appetizer) and everything else was omelettes, sandwiches, etc. It was incredibly disappointing. I would not have gone to Catch for a chicken sandwich, or a poorly cooked omelette. The sides were soggy hash browns, and the entrees were equally disappointing.

This was my fifth time at Catch. I am tired of waiting for my reservation well beyond the scheduled time — which dawned on me - they have pulled this on me every time I go there. This time, seated finally after 1.25 hours BEYOND my reservation time. Additionally, the hostess has why more attitude than they should for $10 a hour labor.
Once seated (albeit upset by the repeated delay), I think the food has fallen off in quality. Average at best. One fish and one steak order and both were just ok.
I feel compelled to remove Catch from my list. There are too many great service restaurants in NYC to settle for this philosophy. Very disappointed
