On a whim, we stopped in to Catch. We were heading to the shore after a long day at work in NYC. It was late. We were hungry. And underdressed. None of that mattered after we met our server, Tomi. She made it all right. Food was wonderful. Tomi was terrific. And we left reluctantly to finish the trip. We would have stayed longer. But we will return! Thanks for the great intermission. Well worth the stop!

Catch is one of our favorite spots in town. I was there with a friend and my BF. The food and service is always amazing.
I had my favorite drink. Tropical Heat, mad with shared Pineapple, muddled Jalapeno and agave and tequila. It was the perfect mix of sweet and spicy. I will definitely have that again!
That night they had special Wagyu beef, so both my friend and my BF had it, but different dishes. She had the Tartare which basically melted in your mouth, was served with the raw egg on top. He had it as the 10 oz grilled with mashed potatoes and was in absolute heaven! It was so tender and soft that you hardly had to chew it. Absolutely amazing! My guess is if ever comes back not he menu (it was a special), he'll have it every time. I started with the always amazing Angry Shrimp and Lobster. Just spicy enough, but delicious as always. Made on a base of coconut milk, it is not overly coconut, and the flavors blend well together. It is definitely one of their trademark dishes.
As a main dish, I had the Lobster Paris for my main course. It was fresh, with perfect seasoning on the salad. There was a big claw meat and there good sized piece of lobster with avocado on top and nestled on a bed of tomato and arugula.
We ate so much we had no room for dessert!

Request for first floor seating was not fulfilled. The manager offered outside seating (to inhale exhaust of heavy vehicular traffic) or to help a hip replacement patient up the staircase. The latter was selected, which created much pain for the patient. Manager offered crostini to share for the inconvenience. Service staff was unfamiliar with content on plates or its recipients. Noise was much more than energetic, it was so loud we could not hear each other's conversation. The 2-1/2 pound lobster had almost nothing inside the shells. It was dehydrated. This was a total disappointment after having had excellent service and impeccable food in the past when it was "The Catch." Chris, the waiter, tried very hard to work through this environmental nightmare.

Restaurant was not crowded so noise level was good. Waiter, Travis, gave great service and had food and wine recommendations. Sesame tuna was delicious, fresh and the presentation was perfect. NYC vibe, nicely decorated with art worth looking at on walls.

I have been wanting to try this place, and finally got the opportunity I’m guessing due to the summer season being a little slower than normal in red bank. The host and hostess were very pleasant, our waitress Jill was very attentive and educated on the menu and preparation of the dishes we ordered, and could not have done more to help. With that said the food was as good as the atmosphere and staff. We all stuck with seafood dishes and were not disappointed at all. Very nice menu, and decent wine list. Looking forward to going back with some friends who really enjoy nice freshly prepared and different dishes.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a diverse and extensive menu. It is a predominantly seafood restaurant however it has great steaks and a wonderful chicken dish that my wife loved since she does not eat fish. Our waitress Tomi was knowledgeable about the menu and really worked hard to enhance our dining experience. We will definitely be back.

I loved the old location & would eat there regularly. The new restaurant is nicely decorarted and makes for a bit of a fancier night out. Food is still good. Very high quality seafood. Excellent service. Our waitress was Grace and she was couldn't have been nicer. She was polite, speedy, and gave good reccomendations.

food and menu selection always plentiful and interesting. Fairly expensive similar to NYC prices. upon entering with a 1 month reservation one of the young hosts proceeded to seat us in the back directly next to the kitchen door. ! we commented this would not work and to rethink this. Immediately sat us upstairs by window.

Server- CHRIS CRUZ was 100% fabulous. Excellent attentive in every aspect. He was best waiter i have had for a long time in many a restaurant. He should be cloned !!!!

Unlike the experiences reported by most of the reviews on this site, ours had no problems with service (long wait for food), noise (go on a Wednesday), or food. Prices are at the top end for Red Bank, along with Char. And, also, like that steak house, side dishes are extra and feed only one person. Truffle polenta and corn with couscous were both excellent, but at $6 per portion not a great value. Of course, they could raise the price of swordfish from $24 to $30 and include one side dish. We shared one appetizer which was ample at $18.00 for two people and one dessert that was likewise for $9 and were in and out in less than an hour and a half. With one cocktail each, the total with tip was just under $150.00.

Service poor, they got order mixed up, food served cold, asked for no spice and no salt and was not done, waited 1 1/2 hr for this meal, sides came after the main course was finished. expect more for the price. waiter was trying but upstairs he was covering too many tables. you can do better elsewhere. performance has gone downhill since they moved to larger restaurant location.

The food was just ok, and being a fish place should have been fresher. There is no value here as most dishes come without sides and sides are not cheap. It isn't even clear what is included and what is extra. The experience was overall a disappointment and for that amount of money, not worth going again.
