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 food was tremendous! As a regular, you can't go wrong with the Grouper Tacos and the Shredded Pork and Plantains. Two great appetizers that make a meal.

4 of our party of7 were unable to get their first choice of fish a fact our server didn’t tell us when ordering . This is the second time this has happened at this restaurant .
Th e place is great and he food is fabulous but advise when you don’t have something . This was a 7pm booking so it wasn’t late in the evening. The manager was very nice and removed a bottle of wine and apps from the check but it is annoying and something that would deter me going back again

We've been going to Catch for years and always like the food and value. Everything was good this time but they really need to get new menus. They are really worn and warped and for a restaurant like Catch, this is unexpected.

Even though listed on reservation, there was no acknowledgment of birthday. But excellent server adapted, and provided special touches. Food is always excellent at this restaurant.

The food and everything else was great. The only thing that was bad with our dinner was the long wait. We had to wait for 25 minutes just to order but the restaurant was busy and understaffed.

The service was awful! Took over an hour to get our appetizers, waitress would take forever to come back to table! Then our orders were incorrect and she made it seem as if it were an inconvenience that she had to correct it. Horrible service! Very Disappointing for the amount of money we spent.

Food was amazing. Service not so great service. Took 10 minutes just to get water. Waitress wouldn't even look at us, let alone to stop at our table to see if everything was ok. She'd ask as she passed by. We went at 8:30pm. I Took note to how many tables were filled, 4, 5 including my husband and I. Service very disappointing, Food excellent!!!

The food was good, not spectacular like it normally is...understandably not their norm as it was a holiday. The stuffed shrimp were the best plate ordered at our table. My Steak Diane was nice and tender but sans flavor unless you dredged it in the cognac and mushroom sauce. The noise level in the restaurant was terrible though, management should look into something to block out the loudness of the people and conversations.

We checked in on a rainy night and asked for a booth but the host said it was reserved and put us at a small table where we waited to be served or at least acknowledged. Neither happened and we go up to leave but decided to stop and check out the bar. We met Kay and she sat us at a booth in the bar and we proceeded to have a great meal and experience at Catch 23! We told her what happened and she took our drink order. When she came back, she said the manager wanted to buy us an appetizer for our trouble. Kay was a fantastic PR person for this restaurant and had we not met her,we would have left and missed a great dinner and experience! We recommend Catch 23 and especially Kay!!!

I still like this place but it is not as good as it was a few years ago. Service was good but disappointed there was no Mahi Mahi. Bread rolls seemed stale.

There were 2 large groups that were so noisy that we had difficulty hearing one another.
Waitress said that all three of her tables came at once so it was difficult to serve everyone. Also ordered salad and it took 20 min. for them to be brought to the table. Our dinners came within 2min of our salad. We sent them back. I could see into the kitchen and knew our meals had been sitting there for a few minutes. We told them to remake them and not put them under the warmer. I could see mine was just put under the warmer and when they brought dinner I told them to redo it. It took another 15 mins.. to get my meal. Very disappointing.

The service was terrible, the table was so wobbly we had to put one of our shoes under it to stabilize it. We sat inside, it was too hot. Our steak was served without a steak knife and the butter knife we had couldn’t cut the meat. By the time anyone checked on us, my son has eaten the steak with his hands. We ordered a beer that she brought 20 minutes later, it was warm and clearly sat at the bar, there was no apology or even a consideration to get a fresh beer. We asked for water 5 times and we were brought one glass and a pitcher to refill the 2 styrofoam cups we were served initially. The food was good, the drinks were good, the price was reasonable. For the money, one would expect a stable table, a steak knife, and actually glassware. I’m hoping we just had a server who had a bad night. It didn’t ruin our night, we still enjoyed the experience. We made light of the terrible service and had plenty of laughs.

An excellent choice for a dinner for two or with friends. A good selection of seafood and fish, together with steak, chicken, and pork dishes. Their paella is very good. Prices are reasonable. Service is always
good.

We used to look forward to driving from North Port to have dinner here (2 hr drive on a Friday night) but the quality of food has gone down. Serving margarine with bread and baked potatoes? I asked for real butter for my potato and was given drawn butter. The mushroom flatbread was not hot and missing the truffle oil. I asked for a cocktail and they didn’t have the ingredients. Not in a hurry to return.

Food always good, service can be on the slower side but always very friendly. It was loud but that can also be atrributed to one particularly noisy group.

Restaurant needs an uplift on decor. Floors possibly Wood, take down those white drapes... Haven't been there in 10 yrs, and it looked like 10 yrs ago. Food and service were very good.

We have been going to Catch 23 since it opened. Every year we get together with our snowbird friends on our ‘Stone crab Friday’. Tonight was HORRIBLE! The four of us had the WORST server we have EVER had there. The girls each ordered 1 lb. of hot stone crabs and the one of the men ordered a filet and the other ordered pan fried scallops. The filet came and was fine. The scallops came back grilled. The stone crabs came cold and the server challenged us that we had ordered them hot. He took back the stone crab claws and a slight spanish-looking male came back to us and said they are always served cold. We have been going there every year and ALWAYS order them hot. Another server stopped at the table and asked how things were and my husband mentioned that his scallops were grilled and not pan fried. She agreed and took them back. While the girls were waiting for the stone crab claws the other server brought my husband’s scallops back. They had just put the grilled scallops in a pan and seared them!!!! The other server brought the girls their stone crabs and one gentleman had finished his filet and the other gentleman had almost finished his meal! You tell me what kind of an evening we all had...... ZERO out of normally a four to five star restaurant......by the way, we gave the other server a tip even though she was not our main server and we will will be asking for her should we return.
