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.

What an amazing place! We were stranded aboard a hot plane for 2 hours and missed our reservation time. They graciously accommodated us, seating us just 15 minutes before closing time. The service was perfect, and the food just superb. Will be returning!

The food was delicious, but the service was off. We started with oysters, frito misto, and peach salads. For our mains we shared the special halibut snd striped sea bass. The food runners messed up delivery of our meals a couple of times and the waiter was a bit rude to one person in our party. There was live music which really made atmosphere nice. Overall a fairly pleasant meal, just a bit disappointed in the service.

Had an absolutely amazing time at Catch. The food was incredible and service impeccable. I cannot gush enough. We had the grilled artichokes, mixed grill, paella, oysters and mint meatballs. Every bite was an absolute DELIGHT. THE strawberry lemongrass margarita is a MUST have.

Sat outdoor on a wonderful San Francisco May evening. Although the sidewalks were active the seating was private and enjoyable. The menu at Catch is as you would expect, mostly seafood and limited on other items but the food has always been stellar. Service too!
Go, enjoy the environment & food!

We went to multiple restaurants within San Francisco; each with a very different approach to COVID rules. I feel like Catch took it to an extreme - killing the fun and pleasure of eating out. Their long list of rules and "WARNING" card that was covered with sticky fingerprints that they threw on our table was more of their focus then on their food, the menu and the experience. I am fully aware of the situation restaurants are in due to COVID and the crazy regulations they have - but so many restaurants we went to handled it with grace and still made the experience positive. I felt like I was at a CDC training course at Catch. Food was good. But the experience made it completely disappointing.

Overall very good. My 2 comments, the crab croquettes were not hot. They got to our table in 2 min, I would prefer to wait 5-6 min to cook them as I order them. They are deep fried and should have been piping hot and were luke warm at best. But tasty. The special halibut was very delicious but overpriced at $39 and not a big serving. The price is not inline with their menu so I never asked. I feel the waiter should have mentioned price when he described it. However, again, it was delicious. I will go back.

The food & good service keep us coming back. This is a good place for seafood lovers. The menu is well rounded for others. We had the special, grilled halibut with an assortment of Vegies, beautiful presentation. The truffle fries were picture worthy, a tower shape.

My wife and I celebrated my birthday with a late-made reservation. We were indoors next to the outdoor seating (with open air / good ventilation). The food was excellent as was the service. We shared the grilled artichoke and the crab croquette was oh so good! We both had the French onion soup was piping hot and served in a deep lionhead bowl. It too was special. We had the salmon and the day's special Alaskan halibut. Both were very tasty and delicious main courses. Overall just a great dining experience!

My wife and I LOVE to brunch here, at least once a week. The Grilled Salmon is always on point and we order it over and over and never regret it. Also easy to get a table on the weekend, even without a reservation most of the time. Such a great place.

We had the halibut (over spinach, fingerling potatoes, mushrooms), which was a special of the day. So unbelievably tasty, I hope this finds a regular spot on the menu.

One of the few seafood restaurants in SF that has a nice selection of proper fish, rather than having the menu dominated by shellfish. But the crab croquette was a-may-zing, so there's that.

Great parklet for outdoor dining! Even on Market Street! Great indoor and street/patio setting when you're comfortable with that.

The two of us had the two sales on the menu (good, though not large), the fish stew (a portion each (very good and cooked to perfection), and the bread pudding (shared) which was outstanding for its type.
