The Catch is in the beautiful Casa Del Mar Hotel. The ocean view is fantastic and the food is pricey and small but delicious. We will go back again with our family.

Overall decent experience. Fabulous food in small portions- expected for the stature of the restaurant. Would have been 5 starts if service was held to the same stature. Brought out the wrong meal completely-while one meal was correct- by the time they corrected my partners meal; mine was cold. Waiter was not apologetic- did not offer any suggestions or anything. Slow service as well. For a Friday evening I would expect better service. Would try again- simply because of the amazing hotel staff and atmosphere as well as food.

I brought my friends from Ireland for dinner and they loved everything. We had a great view of the sea, the service was excellent - we were not rushed through our meal, the staff was friendly and helpful as we made our selections and each entree was delicious. Would definitely recommend for dinner!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
