Located in downtown Scranton, across from Courthouse Square. Parking meters went off at 5 pm, so parking was not a problem. Divided into 2 sections, a bar area with about 8 tables, and a separate dining room with 8 socially distanced tables. Prices are comparable with other similar nearby restaurants. They had sold out of the onion soup by 7 pm on a Saturday, which was unexpected. Instead, we had the New England clam chowder, which was tasty, without any of the usual overabundance of potatoes, but with clams diced so small as to be unrecognizable, visually or by taste. The veal porterhouse chop was outstanding, nicely seasoned, and larger than expected. I ordered it cooked medium, which it was except just by the bone. My companion had the swordfish special, which he also felt was outstanding. There is a good selection of wines by the glass. We skipped the dessert course. Service was attentive. Overall, we felt that this was a nice addition to the Scranton dining scene and will be going back.

My steak was not cooked correctly and was sad to say raw in the middle, when I informed my server ( a girl ) she said the chef wouldn’t take it back to fix. I was more then upset and taken back by this.

Very nice evening with friends & family. 6 of us at a round table with great service. Just the right amount of time between cocktails, appetizers, salad, entree & desert. Then a nice Sambucca for a nightcap. Would highly recommend.

The steak was great but I didn’t like how they served it with potatoes chips, homemade or not. It’s a great cut of meat and cheapens it when it doesn’t have a nice side of mashed potatoes or baked even. None on the menu.

Everything was excellent, the filet was perfect. It comes with homemade chips (yum) and I chose the Mac and Cheese side as well. Great choice. The others had branzino and the gnocchi special. Calamari and salads equally nice. We will definitely return. The bartender, Bobby, was top rate and made a great martini. Benny has another top restaurant here in Scranton.

Had a great meal with my wife Friday October 22, 2021. I had the seafood paella (lots of seafood) & she had the filet. My wife is fussy, she asked for medium rare and the meat came out perfect! Then we shared creamed spinach and mac & cheese. Decent cabernet sav wine selection. Super service, nice pace & not rushed. Dined for 2.5 hours, very enjoyable evening.

Great drinks

But overall it was too rushed

We were asked three times if we are ready to order food - and we hadn’t even been served our drinks yet.

Then our entrée was delivered before we even finished that drink.

Food is excellent.

But it’s not a fast food joint.

at the prices you should be allowed to enjoy your dining experience

I will definitely go back, but I will More diligent about controlling the pace of the meal

Not my first time here but it’s just as amazing as always. Great service, incredible food, and amazing atmosphere. The food is expensive, but fairly priced for the quality that you’re getting and the exceptional flavor the chefs bring out of every dish. I can’t recommend this place enough for those special occasions or if you’re trying to wow your date (which I did).

Salmon was very good, cooked perfect. Fried calamari, cooked perfect. Chicken marsala was very tender and a great sauce. The staff was on point, and the bartender makes a great martini, in a chilled glass, top shelf.

What a special surprise for a first time there. The food was absolutely impeccable. Filet mignon cooked perfectly. Red snapper special with saffron cream sauce to die for. And our server, Alyssa, what a pleasure!

We will be back for sure.

The entrees were very good, salad was nice. The only disappointment honestly was the calamari, it was very average. With the lack of employees out there they worked well with what they had. The house wine was very good.

This was a wonderful surprise. Our initial reservations at a different local restaurant were cancelled because of staff illness. As we began looking for something nearby, we found Catch 21. What a hidden Gem that has only been open a couple months. The environment was neat, clean, inviting and quiet. The service was top shelf as was the food. Our meals with short-rib ravioli and sea bass along with salads, bread and drinks were perfectly prepared and presented. We will certainly go back repeatedly!

4 stars overall 3 for service which is because the waiter mixed up the filets, a very pricey meal. Served a medium well to the party that ordered medium rare and vice versa.
