Beautifully designed restaurant with an amazing view. We went on a Tuesday so it was quiet but I am sure the ambiance must be great when full. The service was great although the waitress came a little too many times asking if we wanted another drink. The food menu is well thought of; all sharing plates, mix of cold and hot appetizers is recommended which is awesome for a group who wants to try multiple appetizers. However we were not impressed with the mix of flavors of the food, none of the plates gave us that "wow" impression to re-order it a second time. It was good overall! I recommend trying the ceviche which is different than your original ceviche!

As expected, Catch was outstanding from the moment we arrived. Great decor, ambience, music, crowd, staff, food and drinks. Highly recommended

After all the hype, the whole experience was meh. Non-alcoholic cocktails weren’t as good as other restaurants. Entrees were bland. The beet salad with goat cheese and arugula was the stand out. The shared plates are probably a better option, but we weren’t in the mood. Service was underwhelming and cold.

There is no sign of where catch is, you have to go around the building so you can see where is... besides this, everything else was outstanding

I loved it. My husband and I ordered a whole snapper! It was amazing. They bring it out whole first so you can see how big the fish is. We would have ordered to many sides as we did not expect the fish to be that large, but our fabulous waiter, Oscar, guided us through the order recommending and warning us about the portion sizes. We will return to this restaurant and will ask for Oscar!

Setting and view were great. Food was very good - some dishes were excellent, some very good, but not great. Cocktails were good and interesting but not excellent. Service was ok. Attentive but took a good bit of time, even though it was fairly empty when we got there. One of the dishes we ordered did not come out (we opted not to raise it because we were quite full and had already been there a good while). All in all, a very, very nice meal, just not excellent. Worth going. Glad we went.

Went with a group of 6 for a birthday dinner. It was a little quiet on a Tuesday night, but it was such a great dining experience! The roof deck was beautiful. The server was super attentive and helpful with dietary restrictions, lots of gluten free options. All the dishes were so good and great for sharing. Would highly recommend!

The seafood was delicious but the sirloin was tough, covered in steak sauce and not good. The ahi tacos were tasty but the Waygu gyoza were terrible. Way overpriced for the quality of food and reputation.

Service was excellent! But unfortunately the food was almost inedible. The only good dish was the mushroom spaghetti, it was delicious. We ordered a couple of sushi rolls and the gyoza's; the fish was not fresh, I could only take one bite. The gyoza tasted old and soggy. It doesn't compare to the Catch La.

very overpriced, the food was alright we can get better food at other places on 5th ave, they had no oysters so that was disappointing. The lobster mash tasted like reg mashed and the snapper had no flavour. The waiter forgot our shots we had to remind him he generally looked like he was in a hurry but the steak was excellent. Over hyped over priced a cocktail is 15USD!

Andrea was amazing. She up-sold appropriately, was extremely attentive and altogether genuinely super friendly. She’s an absolute model server.

The food was very good as expected. We’d been in NY before so generally knew what to expect.

The one negative was that there were a few of the large crickets that were TERRORIZING our tables and the surrounding tables, flying at and around us- but understandably, can’t really do much about that.

Amazing food, incredible views, they had problems with the credit cards so it was cash only, and it can get expensive.
