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.

Two dates in 2 weeks, the food was outstanding. Both meals were different, except for the oysters. Top rate. Best seafood place in Tampa, bar none!

Still miss the Chilaquiles verde that was on your brunch menu. Wish you had more non meat offerings. The mimosas were a very strange color. Not sure what kind of orange juice you were using, My mother loved the chicken and waffles, but had to request more syrup.

This is the 3rd time visiting and the 2-times before was Great Food and Great Service, but this time the Service Was TERRIBLE. The food was once again GREAT.
The service girl took almost 15 minutes just to greet us, she asked
if we wanted something to drink, took the order then didn't see drinks or her for another 15 minutes, drinks finally came out and didn't see her for another 10 minutes, then asked if we wanted to place an appetizer which we did, didn't see the appetizer for almost 20 minutes.
She took our order for the main course after appetizers came. Dinner came out in a reasonable time but never saw her again until I asked for my check, never came by to see if everything was ok.
Food was GREAT and will be back, but hopefully not have the service girl we had this time

Loud but exceptional food and service. The drinks that we had were oversized and delicious.
If we lived closer we would dine there quite often. Parking on a busy night isn't the greatest but it is worth it

It was my birthday and the service was the worst ever at Catch 23. Received extra dressing for the salad after I was finished the salad, french onion soup was late...server thought he wanted it served with his dinner (who does that?), I asked for pan seared scallops and they came grilled, had to ask twice for malt vinegar and had to ask twice for a small box for fries for the dogs. Very bad serving. Do not know if it was her norm or she was just inexperienced.

Food and service were very good. Conversation was almost impossible. The noise lever was very, very high. Not at all good for friends or family conversations. Would be an good afterwork gathering place and for a night out with the gang. Menu contains a variety of foods with prices within the expected range. Outside dining dining appeared very popular and would be good for any gathering. Overall a very good restaurant if you are not looking for a romantic, quiet dining experience.

We had a splendid meal recently, with very fine service by the bar staff. Beware, the bar area can get very noisy, so you may prefer a table in the restaurant. In any event, the food was well prepared and there are a good many options. Decent wine list too.

Perfect! We are staying nearby one night in a hotel needed to get out for dinner. Just search nearby and lucked out finding your restaurant and neighborhood. I can't remember the waitress name, but she was great

First time going to this restaurant, and won't be the last.
What a GREAT Find.
Service was GREAT, FOOD was Awesome, and the Drinks were also great.
We had reservations at 6:30 and were seated promptly, and the nice thing was they had outside seating and it was a beautiful evening so we sat outside.
Our new found Seafood place to go.
All I can say is a must is the Lobster Escargot, OMG!!!

Our first visit and we now have my wife’s new favorite drink- their coconut-key lime martini. Great flavor. I had the creole paella which had great flavor and the seafood was nicely cooked but was a little short on rice. My wife went with two appetizers, the lobster escargot and the crab cakes. Both were delicious. The crab cakes were mostly large chunks of flavorful crab meat. Had the key lime Creme brûlée for dessert but was disappointed as it was a nice custard but lacking in lime flavor.

Always a good meal, of late the fish seems to be lacking something, raw a few times and the meals seem to have changed a bit? Like the quality has diminished a bit .

Catch 23 is a local neighborhood restaurant. We go here a lot, and it never disappoints. We went for St.Patricks day celebration because we knew they were offering a couple of specials. Of course, they had the green beer. But the corned beef and cabbage and the Guinness burger was great. The corned beef was very lean and flavorful and serving size was good. I don’t even like cabbage, but the cabbage and boiled potatoes were delicious. It tasted like a real home cooked meal,but without the mess. My husband really liked his Guinness burger and said it was cooked just right.

Service was great so we did not wish to complain. food very disappointing.
The crabmeat appetizer was terrible just a crusted puree of filler no ump crab, The seabass encrusted was our entree choice and appeared to have come out of the freezer and was overcooked along with the overcooked plantains.
Sorry to honesty review like this because we have always been satisfied at Catch 23 in the past

This was our first time visiting Catch 23, but we will certainly be back. We started our meal with the coconut shrimp, which were excellent. We each tried one of their craft cocktails and were not disappointed. Our main entrees were outstanding (stuffed shrimp and macadamia encrusted mahi mahi). My only regret was we didn't have room for dessert!

I took my wife to this restaurant for a rare date night. It was the site of our first date many years ago and we were looking to have a romantic evening together. The service was good, but it was really busy. We both ordered a filet, but they served us lower quality NY Strips with lots of gristle. We didn't want a scene to ruin the evening, so we said nothing. We were charged for the more expensive steaks. Each of us also had a glass of wine and a bowl of soup. Like 90% of dissatisfied customers, we quietly paid the $113 bill and left never to return.
