Seafood
Catch Twenty Three restaurant infuses its creativity with flavorful Latin and Caribbean influences served up in a casual, upscale setting. Island music is carried by cool breezes throughout the restaurant, recently renovated with a "Cuban Elegance" motif with a feel of a tropical resort dining room. Mouth watering aromas emanate from the pecan wood grill such as the Certified Fresh Seafood, Angus Beef or Sushi.

The service was amazing the server took great care of us however our food was not so good. The calamari was rubbery I ordered the Chicken with the macadamia crusted the chicken had a weird taste like it was old. I didn't eat my chicken. I could have sent it back but I was with friends and didn't want to cause any issues. The desserts were amazing cheese cake and the carrot cake. Again the server was great we would think twice on our choice the next time but may give it another chance.

The restaurant is located on a quaint street and we chose to eat outside, we were celebrating birthdays. The server was very attentive and funny. The food was great however, I ordered a kale and Brussel sprout salad and about 30 min later (just before all of the food came out) the server came and told me the restaurant did not have any kale or Brussel sprouts. They accommodated me with another option and did not charge for it. Good customer service. Overall a nice place for both a casual meal or for a celebration.

Me & husband went for a Saturday night dinner at catch twenty three.. we have been planning to go to this place since long .. heard a lot of good reviews about the food so wanted to try out. We ordered sriracha shrimps in appetisers & had Maine lobster tails and local black grouper for main course.. sriracha shrimp & lobster tails were super delicious.. grouper was ok but the seasoning was a little bland. Overall the food was good and cocktails were also nice .. we had sangria & Mojito.. the service was also quick & nice. I really recommend this place for someone wanna try seafood.

On a wednesday we had a party of five with reservations. Everyone had fish or scallops and all was prepared perfectly and tasted great. The server was very good and the meals came out in good time. We had been there multiple times before and everyone we brought were very pleased and said they would return.

Food is excellent! We went with a party of 3 and were greeted and served nicely. The food is delicious. Drinks amazing! We were very happy with our experience there. The only negative point is the decor. It is really dated and would defiitely need to be upgraded. We loved it overall!

First time visit. We were pleasantly surprised. The service and food was great. The fish was cooked to perfection whether it be our appetizers or entree. If you’re watching your salt intake you need to tell them ahead (which we forgot to do) otherwise it is one of the best fish restaurants we have tried in Tampa.

Catch 23 is one of my go-to favorites. The food is consistently great and they use quality ingredients in the mixed drinks, better than other restaurants in my opinion. Service is always great. On this visit, I knocked over my glass of water and our server was on it immediately and so nice. The outdoor seating area is my favorite place, but too hot during the summer unfortunately. Keep up the good work, Catch!

I would recommend it, but with hesitation and caution; I am hoping we just went on a bad night. The guacamole was worse than bland. We jazzed it up ourselves with salt, lemon juice (garlic and cilantro would have been nice too.. it looked and tasted like one bland smashed avocado). The sangria was so sugary we could not drink it, the coffee was not even warm - room temperature at best (warm after it was returned), and the meals, while tasty, were also barely warm. For the money spent (2 appetizers, four dinners, sangria, wine, and a dessert) we all left disappointed and wondering what happened to this formerly delicious top-notch restaurant. (Also, why are there no vegetarian options? It's either a mushroom flatbread or order a combination of sides which are primarily starches. Very disappointing)

We love burger night!! Great service and delicious food. Burger ordered medium was once again well done with not a bit of pink but I still enjoyed it. Salad and onion soup were also great.

My husband and I used to love going to Catch 23 for drinks & food. After an 8-year hiatus, we chose to go back with some friends. The ambiance in the dining room was not befitting the memories we had of our times at the restaurant. Cheap looking curtains really diminished the dining room. The food was okay but not as good as we remembered. We will likely not return.

Gets very noisy. Used to have tablecloths on the tables which may have helped a bit to absorb noise levels. Difficult to carry on a conversation across the table. Food and Service were great.

Food was good but service was a bit slow. Considering it was Father's Day you should be prepared for a crowd and make sure the food is prepared in a good amount of time. They forgot to give us bread until I mentioned it later to my boyfriend and I guess she overheard me, next thing I know we have bread at the table but it was way after our appetizers.

The food at Catch Twenty Three was delicious, had the Mahi Mahi blackened, Tuna - not so good, but the Grouper and Sea Bass were wonderful. Carpet was dirty & the waitress, although friendly, did not bring us bread and butter, until after I asked twice - also, beverages were slow in coming.

Noise level is much too high. I know you want it to be energetic, but it's so noisy, you can't have conversation. Everything else was great. I'll sit outside next time if possible.

We went for happy hour which we did not enjoy at all. There was one wine on happy hour and two beer types. No liquor. However the appetizers we had were very good and the dinner menu looked very interesting and eclectic

Unfortunately the food quality has been declining. We were told by the server “new chefs and new manager all the time”. No longer a top choice to go and have dinner.

Food, service and atmosphere were good. The wine list was mediocre and many were marked up more than 3x their retail cost
