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.

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.

Loved the food, and they were able to modify my dinner mate's meal. We weren't aware of the daily special until we were ready to order. This was good because I could change my mind, but it would have been great to know in advance.

The food and wine list, and of course the bar, are excellent. Although considered indoors due to a roof, part of the indoor restaurant is actually outdoors, with the front wall removed. If you sit near the opening, it is the same as being outdoors.

Also, staff is very diligent about Covid safety, so diners should feel quite safe there.
