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.

As its name suggests this is a fish restaurant and has few choices for vegetarians and carnivores (risotto and steak I believe). There are two seating areas, a patio next to the sidewalk with a gas log fireplace, and an interior dining room with a large bar area. We were seated in the patio and despite record cold temperatures in SF the inside temperature was OK (after we asked to be moved from being seated next the clear plastic barrier that separates some tables from the sidewalk, which was drafty and cold). The patio is a good option when the weather in SF in nice.

The food is average, definitely nothing to rave about. As with most other SF restaurants the price of most appetizers is in the mid teens and entrees $25 and up. I opted for two appetizers since none of the entrees appealed to me despite liking fish.

I started with fried calamari. It was a generous portion and not overloaded with breadcrumbs. The deep fried slices of orange and lemon were a nice touch. I followed with the mussels which was a mistake since they were in a thick coconut sauce which was very sweet and made me wonder if it was to disguise the taste/smell of the mussels. I'd avoid the mussels if I go back since I prefer a more traditional presentation in broth or white wine.

We skipped dessert since it was clear our server was waiting for us to leave so she could get her tip.

Catch is our go-to for a solid restaurant with good food, nice atmosphere, and where we can hear each other!

Great ambiance and service, food was good. We were a reservation for 4 that had one drop out, so we three were seated sort of in the doorway to the front part of the restaurant, which was a bit cumbersome and not very private. Had to keep scooting outer chair out of the way of waiters. I would go again, it fills a need, just wasn't happy with seating.

Five of us had a great birthday celebration. Enjoyed every part of it from a drink at the bar to dessert.

We went to the Castro Theatre for a movie and had a meal at The Catch afterwards, and were not disappointed. I had scallops which was and my husband chose the sea bass with a crab risotto which he thought was really terrific. Our friend had the sames risotto with halibut. That together with a good sauvignon blanc, we were very happy. We'll be back!

Service and ambiance was great. Very nice touch with a live piano music, and was out of the way so it was not the center of attention. However, the food was quite bland. Fish was perfectly cooked, but not much flavor. Too much cream in the Risotto.

I've been going to Catch for years but typically for lunch. I was not familiar with our server. Very nice young man but a few mis steps for me. Water was never brought or offered, either was bread. Bread is a great treat at Catch.

The food at Catch is consistent, and very tasty. The service was good, and on a Tuesday night it was pretty quiet when sitting outside.

We were seeing a double bill at the Castro and wanted to try someplace nearby we hadn't before. Found Catch on OpenTable, liked the menu and reviews, so booked a reservation. We were very pleasantly surprised to be served some of the best seafood we've ever had in SF. We were seated beside a circular fireplace in a cozy little anteroom. My husband and I both had grilled tuna over artichoke hearts, roasted Yukon gold potatoes, and green beans. The green beans were a tad undercooked and under-seasoned. But the rest of the dish was fabulous. For dessert, he had the brioche bread pudding with whipped cream and whiskey sauce. I had a type of crunchy baked chocolate cake filled with creamy vanilla gelato and topped with a drizzle of caramel. Both dishes were heavenly!

One my “go to” favorite seafood restaurants in San Francisco. Today we have the salmon with corn risotto. Outstanding !!! Good service and an outdoor patio for people watching makes this a must try!

The tuna poke was good, the cioppino was just OK and the risotto was a bit undercooked and mushy at the same time. It honestly just didn't seem fresh. The sea bass was fine.

The wine list is good and on the evening we went, bottles were 50% off, which was a great deal. I've been here a few times and the food is good. The menu is varied and the fish is always cooked well and has nice flavor. The issue for me is that the chef is a bit heavy handed when seasoning other components (broth, risotto, etc.). The service is warm, gracious, and swift.
