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.

Wasn't either impressed or upset. Service seemed to match the ambivalent food we received too.

Nothing about this lunch wowed me.

That said, when my Midwestern relatives are in town, want to eat seafood in the Castro, I'll think about it again when the line at Anchor is too long.

Considering, restaurants are just opening and workers are getting back into the swing of things, I felt like this dining experience was good. Things took a bit long, like taking and serving our orders, and extended periods between that we did not see our server. I assume because it was golden hours for brunch, it might have been busy. We sat outside on the sidewalk, so I can't confirm that. The food was tasty and the seafood was cooked well. Aside from the long waits, the staff was extremely nice and the food was good.

Terrific outdoor dining experience, lots of choice menu selections, and attentive service. The ribeye steak was mouth-watering delicious! And you can't beat the seafood dishes that they're known for.

It was a pleasant meal, but nothing noteworthy...other than the price. That was a bit steep for this level of dining. The service was fine, the quality of the food was good. Drinks were nice. I didn't like the sticky table. I will likely go back at some point, because there are a dearth of decent restaurants in the Castro now...but I wouldn't make an effort to go.

While the food is very good, especially the seafood chowder and the coleslaw that accompanies the fish and chips, the service is the real triumph. The team there is friendly and professional; and they seem to work together seamlessly. I was very impressed.

Food was solid but a little expensive for the value. There was nothing really special about the food, but everything was good.

The ambiance inside seemed fine, but we were there for outdoor and honestly the patio was a little cold and loud because it is off Market st.

The pacific Catch tiki lounge is an unexpected oasis across the street from Golden Gate Park. The food has a Hawaiian flavor mixed with Baja California. The wait staff is caring and unchanging. It has been impossible for us not to feel connected to our servers and all the staff who make this wonderful Sunset neighborhood restaurant our go to place
