Great view and not too noisy. Cesare salad much too much pepper but credit them for removing the charge. Lobster big but rather tasteless. Good wine but poor attention to wine service.

Disappointed! My wife's Bday celebration. Inputted online on Open Table, also told Hostess and wait staff. Nothing! I mean nothing! You would think they would give a dessert, maybe sing Happy Bday! Nothing!

Also, no bread on table. Have to pay 5.00 for basket of bread. Really?

Somewhere during meal, a woman stood over table, did not introduce who she was. Asked how everything was, then walked away. I was, " What was that about"? Nice that she asked, but maybe she should have introduced herself, let us know her position in co.?

Was such an impersonal experience, the whole evening. Would not go back!

Arrived early and seated immediately at a nice table overlooking the beach. Ordered from the wine list, wine glasses dirty and required replacement after wine was opened.

Sushi (rainbow roll) delicious. Branzino tasteless. Swordfish preparation very good but fish was somewhat dry. Overall, high expectations, but missed the mark...

The setting is beautiful with a wonderful view. The service was rather poor. It was very slow. It took 30 minutes to get cocktails served after we were seated. Then another 20 minutes for our order to be taken. The food was fresh but not very creative.

I have been to Catch 5-6 times.
I find the food mediocre.
The presentation is attractive , however they serve in dishes that are not practical and the knife can not be put on the edge of the plate but on the table instead.
I am not alone in not being able to eat SPICY food or not liking it.
Even after asking, I have gotten it in 2 different salads and a chicken dish.
I think it is a much better idea to sit in the bar/lounge.

Great spot ! The food was amazing, the staff was very professional. The attention to detail...was amazing. I made reservation for my our anniversary using the app. Forgot that I had mention this...and to our surprise without asking they brought out a desert plate with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate! Awesome .... Was worth every penny if you can afford it ...if you can't then eat elsewhere !

Have only been here once before and so very pleased we chose the Catch for this special evening. Everything was totally awesome from the restaurant to the wait staff to the food itself. The scallops and the Chilean seabass were perfect, not to mention the freshly baked baguettes and the sauteed mushrooms. A perfect choice for a perfect evening. Thank you all.

Of all the restaurants we could have chosen we came here because of their signature squid ink pasta dish. We saw photos on the lunge and it looked amazing.
We were sat with a beautiful view of the ocean, that was really nice. The service was extremely slow and we found ourselves trying to catch the manager or other servers as they rushed by to get what we needed.
The food came came out- the pasta dish looked nothing like the photo we saw and the squid ink pasta itself tasted marginal at best. My husbands steak was over cooked and neither one of us ate our meal. It just wasn’t good.
We sat for a very long time ready to go with the food in front of us when we finally caught the manager so we could pay out and go.
Final verdict- I would come back for some oysters at the oyster bar but I won’t be back for dinner. Total disappointment.

Went there for DineLA week, food was okay. Their appetizer, grilled octopus was fresh and tender. The yellow fun tuna poke was delicious, although had better in Hawaii. I didn’t really think their main course was anything special, we had the grilled branzino and braised short ribs, it wasn’t as tender as I expected. Had the chocolate lava cake, not too sweet, but decent.

Parking is difficult there, you need parking karma to find street parking and there is traffic always in Santa Monica.

What a great location on the beach in Santa Monica with large windows overlooking the bay! The seafood was delicious l, fresh and perfectly cooked. Service was excellent even though the server was new and very harried. Be mindful that the still water is $10 a bottle.

The view is what you are paying for here. The food was decent. It was prepared well, but not exceptional well. There was nothing unique or remarkable on the menu. Service was poor. Very polite waiter, but he took a long time to take our order, get our wine, bring the check, or check in with us. He forgot to bring us an appetizer we ordered. Very nice, but he just didn't seems that capable. Personally, I care more about the food than the view. For the price, I expect the food to be exceptional, not just adequate.
