We are not able to get to this restaurant due to location. However, when we are visiting Sandy Hook we always make a reservation. We are NEVER disappointed. Great service. Food is amazing. Very creative menu with wonderful presentation. Loved our server, Athena. She was our server last year too! She is wonderful!

Food was good. A little pricey. I ordered a special surf and turf. The lobster was non existent. Sent it back. Waiter took my dish with half my filet on it. Never to be seen again. The entree was $85; they took off $45 for half eaten filet.
Not good customer service. When inquired where my steak was they asked if I wanted it!

I don't' mind paying for quality food and service. I'm happy to do it but this place has a lot of nerve charging the prices they do for bad service and bland or just OK food. I would never recommend it or go back.

Food was so-so. And seating/ambiance was lacking a little. I just don’t think we got what we expected for the price we paid. Highly priced for above average service and mediocre food. Neither one of us was overly enthralled by our experience there.

Great restaurant with nice decor and delicious food. Everything we ordered was delicious. We loved the mango salmon tartare, angry shrimp and lobster, and chilean sea bass. Seared tuna could use more seasoning, it was bland. Our server was very friendly and attentive.
Place was packed so it was extremely loud. Towards the end of our meal, the AC got shot down by a staff member and it got uncomfortably warm.
Overall, we had a great time! Will definitely come back in the future.

My Bride enjoyed her app and entrée, my app was good but my entrée, while cooked fine, was the blandest blackened swordfish I've ever had. Prices were NY-level, which is rather ridiculous for Red Bank and the food just wasn't worth it.

The restaurant is very pretty and food is good. Had to scream across table to hear each other. Waiter seemed to be rushing us when we first got there. Once food was served, he never appeared, didn’t ask if we wanted dessert/coffee. Waited forever for check when eventually manager brought it over. They were understaffed and have stuffed way too many tables in. When waiter was taking order from table next to us, leaning forward screaming specials to that table, well let’s just say wasn’t a great view!! And why, when you have a noisy restaurant with many specials, don’t you give a separate “specials this evening” menu so waiters aren’t screaming?? Also appreciate restaurants that tell the price of each special which was not done in this case. Friends also dined there the same evening and said they received the wrong check for their table.

An absolute pleasure. We had a lovely dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was above and beyond our expectations. The interior is tasteful and elegant. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We had the “angry lobster” appetizer and we may be addicted to the sauce. Tuna crudo was amazing as well. We had the sea bass and seared ahi tuna and they were excellent. If you love fish, you will not be disappointed. There are also options for people that don’t like fish as well so bring your friends!!!

The service was great! The table of 4 was too small. The appetizers were good. We had colossal Shrimp cocktail. Huge, firm and crisp. Delicious. Also the angry shrimp and lobster . Also very good. The main entree’s were ok.
All four of us agreed we did not like our entrees. I had Chilean Sea Bass with Sweet and Tangy sauce. It was just ok, not that great. The sauce almost ruined the fish. My husband had the Halibut special he also thought it was just ok and a little dry. Our cocktails were good and our waiter was fantastic.

Had a great experience. First , Mallory (not the one from Family Ties) was excellent. Knew the entire menu, made recommendations that we all loved. Weren’t rushed, pace of Service was perfect. Cocktails were also excellent. I had the tequila with pineapple and jalapeño. Had heat but not too hot and wasn’t overly sweet. Our friend had the steak and said it was perfect. Well marbled. I had the bucatini with lobster and the lobster was perfectly tender , not overdone. Can’t say it was a value at this price point , but well worth the cost and we weren’t out for a bargain meal.

We were unaware of the new location. We arrived at the old location to find it closed. I called in a panic as it was my husbands birthday. I was trying to think of a plan B. The hostess answered and explained that the new location was a few doors down. We were pleasantly surprised. The manager greeted us. Seating was very comfortable. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The new location has a full bar and our martini’s were excellent as well as the food! We have a new favorite seafood restaurant!

Tables on first floor with couch seating and high back chairs are really comfortable . Dessert are great . A great overall enjoyable meal pricey but you pay for great quality and presentation. As a previous restaurant owner I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a wonderful meal on Saturday night. Our waitress( Jill) was excellent! However, we were seated next to the welcome table by the front door and the music from the speaker was so loud we could hardly have a conversation. Our ONLY disappointment.
We love the food ,however, and will simply ask not to be seated there when we make our next reservation. Pork chop is fantastic!!!!

Food and service was excellent. Ambiance was beautiful, if a little dark. However, we were overcharged for wine - had Rose but was charged for more expensive Chardonnay. Unfortunately, didn't catch this until we got home. Would definitely return but keep an eye on the bill.

Great food and very comfortable seating. We had an early seating so it was very quiet and our service was excellent. We ordered the signature appetizer, the Angry Shrimp & Lobster with Sinister sauce - on the spicy side but soooo good. I had the Sweet and Tangy Chilean Sea Bass and my husband the Sesame Crusted Tuna. Both were equally delicious! Will definitely be back.

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!
