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.

Always fabulous food, but we were the last seating at brunch yesterday and for some reason the servers seemed already "checked out." Food was handed across the table and empty plates picked the same way. Made us feel uncomfortable, since there was plenty of room to walk around us and serve properly!

Warm, welcoming staff, historic building beautifully redesigned serving delicious, innovative (but not pretentious ) seafood. The menu does offer vegetarian, chicken and beef options for those not interested in seafood. We LOVED the crab croquettes and seafood stew. Perfect for the chilly evening.

The Chowder and the Mixed Grill are always amazing. Ordered a very delicious French Onion Soup, but I still missed the chowder. Caesar salads are always good, the desserts, salads and entrees are as beautiful as they are delicious.

We loved our SF Restaurant Week meal. The butternut squash soup was the first taste of autumn, bursting with flavor, and the Chilean sea bass was a knockout. Staff and other patrons were friendly, and the restaurant kindly welcomes dogs to its outdoor patio. We will be back.

Upon arrival the host carefully reviewed our vaccine cards and IDs which we really appreciated. This made us feel more confident and comfortable dining at Catch.

Our severs were kind and attentive. I had the special, halibut with spinach and potatoes. Delicious, tender, and flavorful! My husband had the paella which also was full of flavor. We started with oysters which were cold, fresh, and briney, just how we like them.

We sat in the park-let which was comfortable. The lattice and plants provided privacy. Next time we may ask to sit in the patio area which had a cozy fireplace and no windows.

We’ll be back!

We were very pleased with our experience at Catch. The host seated us quickly and service was timely and attentive. One of our guests is a pescatarian, so Catch is a very good option for the excellent menu choices. We have dined here many times and will gladly return.

Everything was great with the dining experience. However, I wish Catch would have posted that vaccinations are required for outdoor dining on their website & on OpenTable. I made a reservation online for outside knowing that one person in my party isn’t vaccinated (for health reasons) and to match the SF mandate. I understand that restaurants have the right to set further guidelines to protect their employees and understand their stance, but that needs to be very clear online so people can make appropriate plans. The host made an exception, which I am grateful for, but it really made for an uncomfortable conversation and made my sister feel like a pariah.

"Catch" has been one of our favorites for years. The food is always excellent as is the service. The menu emphasizes fish and seafood, but there are meat and vegetarian dishes as well. The ribs are wonderful. They have a well-stocked bar which is the perfect place to drop in for a drink whether you are dining or not.

It is a testament to the team at Catch that in the midst of a pandemic that they consistently have great food and service. The seafood is always fresh and their non seafood dishes are equally good.

Lots of outdoor seating. We sat at the open window on the main floor of the restaurant overlooking the street. Loved the grilled artichokes, asparagus, and spinach. As non-vegetarians, we really enjoyed our veggie lunch.
The server checked our vaccine status before admitting us.

Sitting on the patio made it feel safer during social distancing. However, the cigarette smoke from outside smokers draws right in. Smokers should be made to move to the curb. Or be executed.
