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.

    One those forgettable dinners. I had started with the seafood chowder: hot, few clams, fewer mussels, broth had a good texture, but ultimately a bit flavorless dish. I then followed with prawns masala with farro, cauliflower, and squash prepared like a paella. It tasted like a mash of overcooked starches (along with overcooked prawns), and I didn't finish the dish. My companion started with the 3 crab croquettes and finished one of them and said the aioli was too sweet. He also had the mountain of fries, which look an unappetizing stacked in the form of a pyramid. They were cold upon reaching the table so he nibbled but didn't finish the fries. For the entree he had the salmon and liked it. He thought it was prepared well (not overcooked) and tasted fine. We passed on dessert. The wait staff was good and attentive without being overbearing. The choice of table (my fault) was the worst possible location - I didn't pay attention as we were seated. My first visit in a number of years. I don't think I've missed anything.

    Catch is as good as ever, if not better. We had the Fried Calamari, Rock Shrimp, Rock Cod appetizer, which was light and flavorful (not greasy and heavy as is so commonly encountered). The paella style Prawn Masala and the Grilled Seafood Mixed Grill were excellent. Portions are generous. Service was welcoming and attentive. This place is a class act in the Castro neighborhood.

    The place was quite for a Sunday brunch. The staff was really nice. The food was good, had the artichokes, the seafood stew/Cioppino and the Cesar salad. Everything was good the only thing I would say is maybe the tables, menus and glass on the balcony could be cleaned, they were all a little dirty. It was the end of brunch and they started closing up the parklets and outside seating which was a little uncalled for, in my onion they should wait until brunch is over before they cleaned up. We will be back, again everyone was really nice and the food was good/great.

    Catch was excellent. We sat on the front patio next to the fireplace- it was a cool evening. Started with a perfectly dry martini and white wine. I had the wild halibut on sautéed veggies. Excellent. My husband had the veggie risotto. Also excellent. Service was efficient and very helpful. This is the first time back since COVID. Will return soon.

    Catch is one our favorites in San Francisco. Once again it was excellent. The three appetizers we tried were great! Our entrees included fish, short ribs and paella and were all top notch. The service was excellent, with one small issue and the reason for four stars, the busboys were too quick to clear plates and glasses. I lost an unfinished cocktail before it was gone. Suggest public transit because parking was impossible.

    Great meal and service here at Catch. Cool little spot for flavorful dishes. Enjoyed the mussels and the meatballs a lot. Both are in rich coconut based sauces. Grilled artichoke was simple flavorful and awesome. Crab croquettes with aioli also tasty. Found some very interesting glasses of wine and the birthday crème brûlée they brought out for my wife was a nice touch. Would totally eat here again.

    We have eaten at Catch many times pre pandemic. This is the first time in many years. Food is good but what made the experience wonderful this time was the service. Our server was very good and attentive. Even though we were seated at a parklet, it didn't feel like we were ignored. Food was good and we enjoyed our meal, while people watching. Definitely worth it.

    The food and service at Catch is consistently good. The meals are always prepared to perfection and the staff is always friendly. We are very thankful that the restaurant is in the neighborhood as there are no others like it. We also love the fact that they are open for lunch until 2:30 as that is usually the time we are usually available to eat. This place is always a treat!

    Had high hopes for this seafood restaurant only to walk away thinking I can do just as good at home and I’m 2500 miles from the coast! Oysters were just okay, Caesar Salad was typical and my main course, their special for the night, was overcooked and sat on an over fried risotto cake. The bright spots were the service and the wine selection.

    The outdoor dining is on the street, since they closed off their normal patio. When I booked an outside table, I thought it would have been on the normal patio and not on Market Street. The food and wine was great though.

    Have to say first time that we felt are meal was off. Maybe they have someone new in the kitchen, but the Meat Special of the Day (Rib Steak) and the French Onion Soup were both not that good. The French Onion has always been one of our favorite dishes. Tonight it was not and the meat special was over sauced and had a grease taste to it. Sorry just like being honest.
