    Very good as usual. It was jazz festival weekend so the restaurant was packed and good music. The service was OK less than usual but the restaurant was full and very busy

    Standard for the area, i.e. they think they are fancy and awesome, but not so much. Fish was dry. Overpriced for the quality. Had to order all food at once (app, salad, main, desert) which was odd. Asked for bread which showed up after we finished our mains. Manager couldn't handle splitting the check between two credit cards but atleast our server got it done. Pass.

    Great restaurant! Food was really delicious - tasty and well seasoned. Super fresh seafood - the smoked trout appetizer was just wow! Desserts were amazing - the owner apparently picks them out himself from several local bakeries so you get the best of the best. We tried the carrot cake and pistachio mascarpone cake. The service was very attentive - checked in often but not too often. Highly recommend!

    We were in and out in about an hour. The food felt rushed, still had apps when dinner came, dinner wasn’t very hot, the portions are very very small. The tortellini special my husband ordered came with 10 tortellini. The twin lobster tails were tiny, 2 bites each? Sides are ala carte also. I don’t mind paying extra for a great meal and service, we love to travel and try new places but this wasn’t it at all.

    My fiancé and I were in town for an event and I researched different restaurants. With Catch 21 getting great reviews, it seemed like the place to go for a really nice meal. They were very accommodating when we called to inquire if we could move our reservation to an hour earlier since our event ended early. When we got there and throughout our meal, the staff was great. The food, however, was just fair but perhaps that’s because I’m a foodie. For appetizers, my fiancé got the crab cake and I got the tuna. My fiancé’s crab cake was fair and it seemed as though they included a sauce on it to address the lack luster flavor. My tuna was good - better than the crab cake - but nothing that I’d go back for. It also had a weird side of lettuce and tomato in vinegar, which didn’t go at all with the tuna. For our main course, my fiancé got the NY Strip medium rare and I got the veal chop rate. Both were overcooked with my fiancés being more akin to medium well and mine medium rare. Both were burnt on the outside, which isn’t a flavor that I prefer but I know some do. We both got the au poivre sauce which was exceptional and saved the steaks. The homemade chips were something different, but a number of them were burnt and didn’t do anything for either of us. For $220 with tip, it definitely wasn’t worth it and I wouldn’t come back if I found myself in Scranton again. That being said, the staff was all great

    My husband had Seafood Paella and I had Shrimp scampi, our food was very good. Service was very good. Our special Arugula salad was especially tasty but I am not sure it was worth ten dollars separate from the meal. Desserts were also a little bit on the expensive side. Drinks also expensive. Overall I would definitely go again but could not afford to go too often.

    Have been dining at all of Bennies establishments for a long time, service at SAMBUCO and Catch 21 has been great , SAMBUCO great, and waitresses/weather at Catch 21 are great, except for bar service employee, small pours, very off in interaction with patrons, ( only if she like you), Just had dinner, great food, but was put back on price of alcohol I had ordered, had 3 dd net bourbons at the price of $112.00, I could have gotten 2 bottles @local state store. Bennie, way out of line

    When my husband ordered the crab cake and shrimp dinner, I thought it should include more than 2 shrimp? My sea bass was nice. Nothing exciting but nice. The tuna appetizer was not good. The tuna quality was poor lots of white so chewy and unable to eat some of it. That was disappointing. Staff was so nice. The place is cute but I don’t think we got much for over $100 dinner and we don’t drink alcohol. Expected more
