A must-go in the area. Creative menu. Fish done expertly (the NY Strip came out more medium well than medium rare). Knowledgeable wait staff. Always a pleasure to dine at Catch. Go. Go back. Go back again.
Set in the gorgeous Casa Del Mar hotel, you would expect a top notch dining experience— but this was definitely NOT. I was served dangerous, old crab legs (which is pretty concerning for a seafood restaurant called Catch) and the rest of the meal was flavorless. It was an expensive meal that was not worth the price. I would not return or recommend.
Tuna tartar - undercooked rice.
Linguini pasta. Good but could have been a bit more generous on the seafood. 2 shrimps.
Mango sushi roll - tasty and good.
Spicy tuna roll - absolutely tasteless and reminds me more about the ones you can buy at the cold section at Ralphs.
1 Camomille tea BAG for 8 USD? I think that must be some kind of record.
And finally thanks for validating my valet parking ticket. The cost only ended up at 20USD. I wonder what it would have been without the validation...40USD?
Seriously - stay away from this tourist trap.
Great view and atmosphere... service was very friendly albeit a bit slow as it's intermittence dragged the evening on longer than needed.
Went looking for a nice restaurant for dinner - first time staying in Santa Monica. Found this place and liked the menu. The service was terrible, the food too and hour. My daughter and I weren’t as important as a table of 5 businessmen. Would no recommend and will not be going back, which is too bad as the food was decent.
Fish was overdone seabass. The table near window was very warm. Should be able to open window.
Waiter was great. Too bad place is not what it use to be.
Have been there many times before.
Overall I thought everything was fairly nice. I had asked on my reservation to be next to the window with a view but didn’t get that. Ordered the steak, french fries, baguette, and Caesar salad. The Caesar salad had anchovies on it which wasn’t listed on the menu but they could’ve mentioned that so I could’ve taken it off. The steak was good could’ve been a little more seasoned. They also could have more side options of variety.
We enjoyed our meal but couldn't figure out why the sushi took so very long. We also thought the waiter could have been more attentive early on at the restaurant wasn't too busy and we did order promptly.
Excellent view right on the beach. Food was very good-not next level up to excellent. The food is propped up by the phenomenal view and is definitely worth a visit.
We made reservations for 6:00pm but arrived 15 min early because there was no traffic surprisingly on Saturday. We were celebrating our 7th anniversary. They seated us right away at a table with a beautiful ocean view. Service was AMAZING. We started off with crab crostini and Caesar salad. Both were fantastic but crab was really good. My husband had the Maine scallops and loved them! I had the lobster with a bunch of vegetables and it was huge and delicious! Would definitely come back again!
Fantastic service and food!!!!
Loved the ambiance, the view, the food, for sure will come back!
Food was ok but not exceptional. The service wasn’t good only due to the fact that they don’t have adequate number of servers. I have been here multiple times and this is a consistent issue. The views are fantastic.
I couldn’t believe that we were charged $2 extra for a stirred martini. Really? As opposed to shaking? I asked for the sauce for my steak to be served on the side. It was...but was also served on my steak. I had the waiter replate as to take out all the extra sauce. The food was good. The service was very slow, considering there were only eight tables and three waiters. Don’t think I’ll be returning soon.
Expected better service (waiters who did not hate life) and food quality for the price.
I was happy to be able to have our special friends with us. It was private where we sat and it was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed the live music as well. I will try to stay at the hotel next time.
Way too pricey but the food was great. Our waiter wasn’t very good either.
This place is a joke. It was not even crowded and we were seated at 8pm. we places an order for spring water which took 30 minutes to get. the food order was messed up and the appetizers took forever..soup..the waiter was rude and didnt even apologize or take responsibility for placing the wrong order.
it took an hour an half for steak ..never to return..foood was bad and spat in
Ambiance was beautiful. Our waiter, Guillermo, was friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, helpful and passionate about food and wine. The food was perfectly prepared. Four of us had a great time. Highly recommended
We had a lovely Valentines night at Catch! The Prix Fix menu had a great variety of dishes and everything was delicious! It’s a very romantic setting and the staff is very nice and professional
Ambiance great, food great. Portions a little small for my liking, but we had a great experience.
I really enjoyed our evening. I will be returning.
Magnificent. The hotel is done on a grand scale, the bar stretches across the entire front of the building overlooking the Pacific. The drinks are well done and the wine list is brief but all excellent choices making choosing a wine or a cocktail easy. The food is spectacular. Can't wait to go back!
Great! Outstanding food. Tuna tartar portion was a bit small but otherwise amazing
We went for a guest chef special dinner and I was pleased that the regular menu was also available-- so lots of choices. Cocktails were delicious and potent but at $18 , were expensive . Caesar salad was excellent and the guest chef 's linguini with clams was very good, but other dishes were just OK, e.g. California roll, scallops on both menus and eggplant parmigiana.
The atmosphere was celebratory , which was nice.
We came in for the Quisiana dinner and ordered off of the regular menu as well. Everything was amazing. The view, the food, wine selection and price was right. Going back soon for sushi that looked amazing too.
Food was great & portion was perfect! Service was a little off, it seems like our waiter wanted to leave because we were the last table of the night, but he was kind and asked if we still needed anything else.
Love the experience! Food and service were great.
Terrific food, atmosphere was a bit cold
Service was very slow
NOT the restaurant it was at one time. We had not been there for 18 months and immediately noticed they had jammed in quite a large number of tables in the dining area. We sat down at 6:00 PM and ordered drinks. 20 minutes later we ordered our food and we did not see our waiter again for over an hour. Others brought our food out and replenished our drinks. My wife's steak was suppose to be medium rare and was almost well done. We decided not to send it back as it took 50 minutes for it to come out, mind you there were only 6-8 other people in the dining area. We were very surprised to see a couple walk in the dining room with a very large dog and instruct the dog to lay down next to their table. As the dining room started to fill the noise level and close proximity of the tables made conversation difficult. The dining attire evident in the room was beach casual. Flip flops and dogs!!!!!! We will not be back. Sad it used to be a wonderful.
I love this place! We went there for my daughter's birthday and what a great night. The food, view, and action at the bar made the night terrific. I will be going back soon!!!
I never review but we went there for Christmas lunch and the food and service were just awful and unbelievably expensive
All good, especially the food which was excellent. Squid Ink pasta the best thing we had. Only real issue was that they forgot that it was a birthday meal, even after being reminded when we sat down. When it got busy, the quality of service dropped off.....they seemed to get a little rushed.
Beautiful view. The service was good, but our servers seemed quite stretched to cover many tables, which slowed down our access to our waiter. Every dish served to our party of 8 was delicious. Too bad that bread or rolls are not available; we would have liked some. Something is different here...some of the energy and luster is gone with the whole lobby. It's still beautiful and the location is magnificent, but it needs to hit "refresh."
Great sea food and deserts!
Everything and everyone was excellent and wonderful food and ambience. We will definitely be back to enjoy other experiences 👍
For my son and brother's joint birthday dinner, this restaurant pulled out the stops, treating my family like we were celebs. The food is terrific, and everything was just wonderful. It has been years since I've been here, but I'm going to come more often now, because it's just great!
Great meal, great service and a super waterfront location.
