WE GO THERE EVERY MONTH
CHEAPER THAN DINNER MENU
My Cousin and his partners were visiting from Mexico. It was their first time to San Francisco.
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.
One of my all-time favorite restaurants in San Francisco! Consistently great food! Relaxed, attractive ambiance. Fresh seafood. Always excellent, attractive service - Catherine is especially attentive!
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.
Excellent food and service!
Tortilla was inedible
Great food ad usual!
Very lovely evening on the patio. The food was quite good and the service excellent. I would definitely return.
Excellent! Very welcoming host, great service and wonderful food.
Great neighborhood spot
Great! Food was delicious - had Rossetti with salmon.
The way they cook the entree : black bass was stunning!
Everything was perfect. I felt the service was great and all 6 of us each loved their meal....
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.
Terrific service. Creative food. Lovely attention to detail.
A pleasure to have dined there.
We always feel welcomed, well fed and we'll served at Catch.
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.
Anniversary dinner that didn’t disappoint
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!
Hands down fantastic!
Exceptional in every aspect party of 3 light night for a Saturday
Been here many times, always excellent. Brought two first time friends and both loved it and want to return.
Gathering friends and family for dinner. Staff was extremely cordial and professional. Server was very friendly and provided excellent information of menu selections.Food was excellent for every meal and well prepared and seasoned. We will return.
Enjoyed our experience, had a great waiter!
Restauant was fine. Food was fine. Nice place but maybe change up the menu a litt.
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!
We were going to the Castro Theatre for a movie and had very little time. Catch accommodated us with the seating and the service,. They were so thoughtful and the food was delicious
Truly delicious and innovative dishes in a fun atmosphere. The owner and staff are warm, wonderful hosts, and there is tremendous care taken in everything from reservations to dessert!
Great as usual! I will start Colin here once s month
Once again, the broiled salmon over risotto was outstanding! Look forward to our next visit!
THis is a great restaurant. I have dined here many times and with eavh visit I am more impressed with the kitchen and staff. Everything wonderful.
Hadn’t been back in years and won’t be back again. While the staff are very nice, the food is really quite fair. There were very few diners. I really wanted it to be good again.
Food is always great and great service too. A reliable neighborhood gem.
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.
