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.

Covid time is a special time, and we appreciated Catch having heated outdoor tables. Moss patrons were more indoor, and we appreciated that the waiter and assistant kept track of us. The food was quite good. We enjoyed the paella, but confess that we had better. The mussels and salmon eaten by others at our table were excellent. I will return when back in SF.

It was a nice ambiance but the food was not so great, the music was very loud that I couldn’t even hear my friend sitting across from me. The service was great. Would we go there again probably not.

Comfortably crowded. Friendly atmosphere, attentive and knowledgeable waitstaff. The paella was almost as good as being in Spain. Highly recommend that dish. Nice choice of sitting inside, or on the covered patio near the fireplace, or outside on the parklet next to a gas heater.

The service was great ! The waiter heard us talk about seat indoor in order to watch COPA final while our original reservation was in the patio. He immediately checked if there was seats available. In addition the food is also good. Highly recommend this place !

Catch hits the ball out of the park yet again. When I informed my guest that I selected Catch for dinner, his response was "Perfect. A reliable spot." Indeed it is. Wonderful food and a highly professional team.

I've been coming to Catch for over 10 years on and off.....Sanjay the owner works hard to make sure his customers are happy and well fed...since opening from COVID days and back to dining without masks I have been here twice and really enjoyed myself, as did my friends. Catch is a great asset to the neighborhood, as it feels like home when you return. I'd like more variety in the menu, but everything I order is tasty and well prepared. They have a great bar area too, and the whole vibe is casual and relaxed..it can get lovely and noisy, but it's a tired and true place I enjoy returning to.

Four of us had a great time at dinner. We had a great table by the front window, which was open and had overhead heat lamps, so it was like an indoor-outdoor experience. Food was delicious. Fish was well prepared. I had the short ribs, which I recommend. Service was great. There was some live music in the back. Highly recommend.

Overall this place is pretty solid.

We were eating a slow paced meal so it seemed they forgot about us here and there but had enough staffing.

Food is always amazing.

I was pretty blown away when they put in the wrong order in and considered leaving one meal at the table while the other person’s meal was going to take more than 15 minutes. So I got heat lamp food, which was still tasty, but they weren’t very happy that we would both like to enjoy our meals at the same time on a date.

Deserts have always been kind of a miss for me here.

Risotto is my favorite.

Unlike many previous visits, the service was terrible. Our waiter ignored us. We never had our water refilled.
The fish was overcooked and tough. Very disappointing.

The decor is dated. The tables were mysteriously sticky. The cocktails are forgettable. However, the seafood chowder was actually quite good. Grilled salmon over risotto was delicate and refined. The food was better than the ambiance.

Always a great experience! The food is constantly great and the staff are always attentive and enjoyable. The owner is often greeting people as they enter and makes you feel welcome. The prices are reasonable and the wine and cocktails are abundant. This restaurant has been in the Castro for years and continues to remain relevant and fresh. Love, love, love!

This is a great neighborhood restaurant. The food is consistently good. I’m hoping the outdoor dining remains because it’s so nice to be able to go out to dinner and take our dog with us!
