    The rooftop is nice and the ambiance is nice as well. I would not dine here again, but would consider it a place to cap the night off with drinks. Our fish was a bit over cooked but the sides were delicious. The dessert seemed like a good idea but needed a better execution. The drinks were good too.

    There was 11 of us and we had a wonderful dinner. Although they ran out of 1 of the entrees we ordered, they made up for it. The atmosphere is beautiful and service was great! A must try when in the area.

    The atmosphere is as good as it gets. Everything else is down hill. The steaks all came out overcooked and gross. The sushi is unbearable and not fresh. The scallops made my wife sick almost immediately. No one at their food. The manager was unconcerned and expected us to still pay. The steak below was cooked at various temperatures. The scallops were OLD and not fully cooked. DO NOT EAT HERE!!! This place is not a safe place to eat. Please do NOT come here.

    La vista del lugar es muy linda y hay una brisa agradable aunque era pleno agosto. El grupo que Tocó en vivo muy bien! La comida es mala (íbamos 4 personas y todos pedimos diferente y nadie tuvo suerte) y el barman tampoco salió bueno. Pedimos margaritas, sangria, Clamato y mojito y ninguno estuvo rico. Caro para lo que fue. No regresaríamos.

    Food was insipid, we had wagyu which wasn’t wagyu, had Chilean sea bass which wasn’t Chilean sea bass. Drinks were watered down. Sure, great view but everything else was disappointing. And even after we complained still was charged in full with a “sorry” and a drink. All in all disappointing.

    He ido a catch en NYC y Las Vegas varias veces y es algo delicioso y el mejor servicio. Te flamean el rollo catch en la mesa y aquí no. El los rollos que pedí no me gustaron para nada. El servicio es el peor del mundo, como sea dejamos el 15% de propina. Pero realmente es el peor servicio de restaurante. Nos traian los drinks con 30 minutos de tardanza despues de que los pediamos, la comida igual muy lento el proceso. Deben mejorarlo o va a caer la reputación de catch!

    Giving this 1 star simply because our waiter was so sincere and accommodating. And the vibes were great. It was a perfect rooftop setting for date night. Except when you start to eat. $200 later and my boyfriend and I both left starving. We ordered chicken lettuce cups which were decent at most and lobster Avacado sushi roll which was super fishy in my opinion. Which made me change my mind about ordering the salmon. So I ordered the crispy chicken thinking I can’t go wrong. Dry and bland. Could hardly even swallow it without chasing it down with water. My boyfriends 10oz steak (I believe it was 10oz) was more like maybe 3oz of edible meat bc the rest was extremely fatty. We ordered grilled asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, and parm truffle fries as sides. Mushrooms tasted BAD. When I say bad I mean tasteless and like they were expired. And the fries and asparagus were DECENT at most. I usually don’t like to leave reviews especially negative ones but I thought I’d share my full experience here because it is an eye catching place and you’d think you can’t go wrong based off of catch New York. Wrong. Avoid this place if you’re looking for a good meal that’s WORTH YOUR DOLLAR. This place is better for drinks and lounging. Definitely not fine dining.

    More of a place for young people - lots of drunk people - the table next to us was very noisy and swearing and saying very inappropriate slurs/things for a dinner setting. I think the wait staff should have stepped in and told them to cut the language or leave. Not a romantic date night setting although it was a very beautiful setting - maybe we should have come earlier. Food was amazing!! Thanks chef! Excellent waiter: Arturo Excellent wait staff: Antonio Excellent bartender: Javier - we loved talking with him! Super approachable and friendly

    Food was so so! I was expecting better but the scallop dish I ordered was not the same as the menu description when it arrived. They were also undercooked and I’ve never had a scallop in a restaurant that wasn’t seared. It made them a little mushy since they weren’t seared. I would have expected more from Catch for scallops

    60th birthday. Called directly to advise. Downstairs hostess asked if special occasion. I said yes, friend’s 60th. Upstairs hostess asked if special occasion. I said yes, friend’s 60th. She asked his name and She wrote on a small note card HBD Lynn. Never heard more or got any acknowledgment. Hot and fans in dining not on.

    We said “yum” and “oh, that’s good” countless time. Especially recommended are the mushroom spaghetti (we shared it as a starter), and the scallops (perfection). Needless to say—the view is stunning as well. I consider this a must-do in Playa.
