About Catch - San Francisco

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 love Catch and frequent it often. Alberto is our favorite waiter in San Francisco. He is a gem. However, all the other staff is fantastic as well. Agustine-Jose at the bar, and Ryan are wonderful also.

This was our first time at this great neighborhood restaurant. Each dish was prepared extremely well. Lovely use of herbs that subtly accented both of our fish dinners. They also have a nice selection of wines to cater to a variety of palates. We will definitely be returning!

I only wish there would be more regular live piano. It stopped shortly into our Christmas dinner and the festive mood dropped a bit.

We gathered from three directions to celebrate a birthday, and do this twice a year at Catch. We enjoy the ambience and friendliness of the staff. We also appreciate that they didn't sing at us! All of us were pleased with our food choices, even the service dog under the table! It was all very relaxed amid a very diverse group of patrons. Thank you, Catch!

The restaurant was almost empty and we were given a crowded table in a drafty location with a snarky server. And I was annoyed. I’ve had much better experiences in this restaurant before and now would hesitate to return.

I was disappointed this time. Service was mediocre, at best. Roasted Branzino was so oily I could not eat it. Risotto that came with scallops and prawns tasted like vanilla cookie batter. Not the best experience. HOWEVER...Baby Gem Lettuce Salad was delicious.

Great dinner and cocktails every time. If you like gin, there is a specialty drink on left bottom of drink menu I can't remember the name of, but it was remarkably tasty. It was a little sweeter than I usually would drink, and I normally drink only one cocktail, but I had two. The striped bass with crab risotto was splendid. Rich and unctuous layers of flavor. My friend had a Hangar steak special that he said was wonderful. Plated presentation always top notch, and the waiter always able to provide a description of the menu items and cocktails. Bread pudding dessert is a unique adventure with the use of sourdough bread that provides a subtle but noted sweet and sour play on an old fashioned favorite. Creme Brule dessert is a good choice for a nice finish to a sumptuous meal. No, I'm not an employee, just a repeat diner with a good memory in case you're wondering.

I have been going to Catch for years and never before experienced such a disappointing meal. For example, the bass sat upon a huge pile of soggy risotto which overwhelmed the dish and the waiter was inattentive. I hope the restaurant can return to its former standards as I think that Catch has the nicest ambience in the Castro.

Every time we go there we want it to be better. It's a nice restaurant and bar. There are a few good dishes but in general they do enough just to get by. The coippino is awful, a bowl of red mush.

The meals were good but the see bass on my dish and the scallops and shrimp on my husbands were small servings. Most of our serving was tasty risotto but we had gone to this restaurant was for seafood. For the price we were charge we did not feel it was worth it. Probably will not go to this restaurant again since there are so many other choices in SF.

Another excellent dinner at Catch! We really liked our server, Kathleen, too! We started with a gem salad instead of our usual Caesar, and we were not disappointed. Then we shared an order of mussels, which are irresistible, particularly because of the harissa sauce. We also shared an order of scallops and shrimp, highlighted by outstanding risotto. Everything was delicious!

Haven't been to this restaurant for a couple of years and boy oh boy I sure have been missing out! It is still a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with style and class (just as much as the day it opened!). Lunch was absolutely amazing! The Salmon with risotto is to die for! Couldn't ask for a more attentive staff or a more relaxed quiet setting (I sat in the enclosed front patio/dining area). Will be back again and again and again..........

While the service was very pleasant and certainly adequate, the servers seemed confused. One server started our service, took an order, then a second server came for our order and was actually the person who served our meal.
It seemed that the two servers had not communicated with one another, as the first server did provide three wines for us to taste, but the second server was not aware of the fact that we were choosing a wine, nor was the server aware of what we had ordered from the first server.
It just struck us as odd. In addition, it was a slow night so we couldn't understand why there was confusion.
