Seafood
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.

Catch is the most consistent, and most enjoyable restaurant in the city. I have been here so many times over the past 16 years and I HAVE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED! I always love the food, the service, the atmosphere, and I am almost always shocked at how affordable it is. Classy and courteous service! Hoping to see Catch celebrate their next 16 years. Give them a try! Highly, HIGHLY recommended!

Amazing, fun and met all our needs including needing to be out in under an hour to make a show. Fabulous Black Cod! And we all loved the garlic cheese fries with Champaign!

We entertained visitors at Catch after having cocktails in the Castro. We didn’t expect the food to be so fantastic. Everyone in my party of five was raving. My mushroom soup with scallop was extraordinary as was my halibut main. It is obvious that Catch is striving for excellence and their chef definitely deserves high praise. Wonderful!

We love the location and the ambiance! We went for dinner for my partner's birthday and he loved it! The bowl of mussels was outstanding. The beet salad was refreshing. The short ribs were fall-apart tender and very warming. They were kind enough to present a dish of creme brulee with a lit candle for the birthday boy!

Lovely patio dining in addition to main diningroom and bar. Fresh seafood served with simple flair. Great bar for cocktails along with reasonable wine list. Excellent service at this longtime Castro favorite.

The Hearts of Palm salad was excellent as was my husband's Glazed Black Cod. I had the striped bass and it was over cooked and not very flavorful. The service was slower than expected. We both felt the ambience of the restaurant felt cold.

Took a friend to Catch for his birthday and requested a birthday cake as a surprise. I got a call from the owner who said they don't have 'birthday cake' but will substitute something to my liking. The surprise was a delicious chocolate moose (with a birthday candle, of course) dessert that was enough for all four of us. What a pleasant surprise. Much better than a traditional store-bought cake. Everything from the service, food, cocktails, and ambiance was outstanding. For a plain night out or a special occasion, I give Catch a double thumbs up.

Had the “short rib” in mash potatoes and spinach. I had beef chuck not short rib, which was tough and flavorless. Mashed potatoes were drowned out by gravy and spinach.

Seafood restaurant with no local seafood. Everything flown in from the east coast. Sad. So ordered the mushroom risotto. Bland and came to the table in five minutes. Cooked at noon? And then wine. Had to look hard to find something half decent from California. Ended up with totally disappointing Pinot Grigio.

And had to ask for water.

I blame the very delicious Liz Taylor martini for my inability to thank our waiter by name! We dazzled in catch’s amazing skill in flavor and presentation of our dishes, sipping that sweetcool martini next to the central fireplace, just takin in the moment. Thank you for creating that space in the midst of it all!

We had an amazing dinner at Catch a couple of nights ago....fresh swordfish with a risotto cake was out of this world. Our ahi tartare appetizer was excellent, as was the mixed seafood grill with asparagus risotto! (Catch's risotto is always 5-star!) We love it here. Kathleen was amazing as always and Sanjay treats us like family! What more could you ask for? Excellent wine list too!

I have never been disappointed with the food at Catch and find the restaurant to be comfortable and quiet for dining and conversation. The bar meets or exceeds expectations and far exceeds quality of other places in the neighborhood. Good place to meet for happy hour. Nice bar snack menu also.
