Located firmly within San Francisco's Castro district, 2362 Market Street is steeped in city history. Here, Catch makes its mark in a storefront registered as an official city landmark that originally housed the burgeoning NAMES Project, which famously organized the creation of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The history remains with the building, but Catch aims to create a new legacy while honoring the spirit of creativity and expression rooted in its surroundings.

To foster this spirit, the chefs rotate their menus regularly, accommodating seasonal produce and fresh catches of local, sustainably sourced seafood. Each dish showcases these ingredients while incorporating Mediterranean influences and minimalist Californian sensibilities toward composition and presentation.

Since opening in October 2002, Catch is the perfect place to gather for every occasion – handcrafted artisanal cocktails and appetizers at the bar, a cozy romantic dinner for two by the fireplace.

Don't get the fried green tomatoes...it was the biggest disappointment. It should be singular, tomato. Spent $35 for the smallest piece of halibut and carrot purée. Total was $200 for an avg meal for 3.

Went here for brunch again. We ordered bloody Mary’s & calamari to start. We asked for extra horseradish as it needed additional flavor for the Bloody Mary. I got brisket sandwich and my dining partner got a salmon BLT. The salmon was very dry and over cooked. I would say they tend to over cook salmon it would seem

Really enjoyed our meal here and seeing the site as it has changed over the years- appreciated seeing the AIDS quilt panel included in the decor. I had tombo tuna and my husband had the steak. We were both very pleased with our meal.

We remember Catch to be a much better restaurant than what we experienced on this visit. Aside from the $2.25 per guest SF Healthy charge, we found the host staff to be less than welcoming. So many dining options in SF and even more so on that stretch of Market. We will not be returning to Catch and wish the restaurant well.

We took 2 friends visiting from Amsterdam to Catch, as it is one of our favorite neighborhood spots for great food. One of our friends is a vegan. Alberto, the waiter, advised him that they could easily make many of their dishes vegan for him. As usual, the dinner was superb, and our friend was quite pleased with his dinner and the options he had presented to him.

The owner and the whole staff are her accommodating, pleasant and helpful. We have been frequenting Catch since they opened for business and will continue as long as it remains a place to be happy to bring houseguests.

Catch is consistently enjoyable. The wait staff has put up with a gaggle of my cousins, date nights with a vegetarian and many lunches with my pals. I adore the salmon with white corn risotto and everyone I take there enjoys their meal. I hope to go back again and again.

I have dined at Catch on previous visits to San Francisco and it continues to be a welcoming and relaxing restaurant. The menu options are varied, but each entre and other dishes I have ordered have all be delightful. The one less than exceptional aspect of dining at Catch is the wait staff. On each of my dining experiences here, my wait staff have not really been "with it". Simple things such as inattention to details and longer than expected absences from their assigned area and tables can leave diners waiting to order food and drinks or to reorder drinks or additional menu items. None-the-less, my dining experience at Catch was made truly enjoyable by being served food that was sublime.

We finally decided to give Catch a try, and so happy we did. We each selected one of the specials and both enjoyed a very good meal. The pan-seared halibut was delicious, and the grilled scallops & prawns over angel hair pasta was wonderful. We began with a roasted beet salad that was artfully presented and very tasty. Our server Cathleen was attentive and took excellent care of us. We look forward to returning for another terrific meal, this time on a Tuesday, when the wine list is 50% off !
