Living in Miami I don't come to Pompano very often. Tonight I decided to visit Sunset Catch (45 minutes) and I regret it.

We arrived at 7PM and sat outside. Kenny was our waiter, I think he needs a hearing aid. My boyfriend ordered an alcoholic drink then said "we will start with the grilled octopus". The drink came shortly after. 30 minutes later Kenny came by with my steak knife (which he gave to my boyfriend) and my boyfriend asked about our appetizer. Kenny says he did not hear our order. We finally receive our grilled octopus without much apology from Kenny.

Entree: My boyfriend ordered the Chilean Sea Bass which was salty; I ordered Lamb Chops which were bland.

Kenny did not offer anything for the extremely long appetizer wait and he came by to retrieve our check before we finished signing (the bill came to $140 with tip).

Overall the experience was below average and I will not be returning.

Disappointed that after waiting over 1 hour for our entrees, one of them was covered in lemon juice which my husband can’t eat. The menu didn’t mention lemon. They refunded the cost of the entree. We didn’t feel like waiting longer for something else, so hubby watched me eat my salmon portofino which was very good. We both enjoyed the stellar sweet potato fries.

Mixed reactions on food:
Grilled octopus app on arugula first served pretty raw; grilled more tasted like mayo. The Caesar greens were crisp & fresh. Entree excellent whole red snapper de-boned, lightly battered & flash fried - really delicious!

Loved the restaurant; however I would be curious if the band (who was very good) was only for Halloween or is always there. I would suggest not putting speakers on the outdoor patio. That way, customers can choose the level of noise. I was there for a business dinner and sat outside; it was very difficult to hear. We did stay after the business dinner concluded and danced. All in all, I would book this restaurant fir an evening if dinner and dancing but not for business or romance.

I have dined many times at this seafood/Italian place. The owners are from Italy, but were no where to be seen last night. Both the service and food were horrendous and so disappointing from the moment we arrived to the end. My reservations clearly requested an outdoor table. Upon arrival I was asked "indoor or outdoor" (obviously no one reviewed the reservations). Only 2 of the 20 outdoor tables were occupied (i.e. place was empty). The waitress never smiled ONCE thru out the night, and i felt we were a burden to her. I asked if the mozzarella starter was like a creamy burrata, she replied yes. What arrived was a small hard clump (literally 4 bites) of a plain tasting white cheese (definitely not worth the $12). Then came the $28 fettuccine with scallops and crab. Fettuccine was way overcooked (i have just returned from Rome and Napoli and had fresh memories of proper prepared pasta). The scallops were tiny and tasted out of a can. The whole meal lasted 1 hour and to drop $100 in 1 hr. On ill prepared food with a borderline rude waitress is appalling. No wonder there were only 2 other tables occupied. Shame on the owners for charging such high prices and not delivering. Definitely a OPUD (over promise, under deliver). I will try the place again since it is so beautifully situated on the water, but hopefully they will step up their game.

Great food but music too loud! Good service and sat outside away from music. Asked the owners to turn down twice and they seemed angry. Just wanted to talk to friend. Also need more signage- hard to find. Beautiful outside seating. Older crowd inside. Music so loud- everyone had to be hard of hearing.
Great food.

What a great surprise. We were looking for some place new to try. This was it. Beautiful location on the intercoastal in Pompano Beach. Good happy hour served daily till 7 Pm. The bar is BUSY, Dawn is a great bartender who makes a great drink. Bar menu Italian style and very tasty. Be warned; they get a much older crowd. Great to see older people out and enjoying their lives. After 7 there is live music and people are up and dancing. Really nice to see.
Food good, not fancy, but tasty fare and well priced. Caesar salad as silly as it sound really good. Pasta prepared perfectly. All 5 in our group enjoyed their meals.

They will be closed for 2 week for a well deserved vacation and will reopen after Labor Day. We will be back again, my husband loved the music. Inseason a reservationb recommended. There is a municiple lot across the street from the restaurnat.

Went with my boyfriend for a date night on a Saturday, sat outside for dinner, great ambiance and food. Had the lobster bisque, and it was my favorite. After we went inside for drinks since there was a great cover band playing, danced the rest of the night, lots of fun.

Delicious mango mojitos. I especially enjoyed the capri mozarello stack on excellent garlic toast. The spicy sauce on my lobster linguini was enjoyable though the lobster was overcooked. The music was excellent with adequate space for dancing. I only wish they could have lowered the decibel level. Overall it was a fun evening and we will be back.

While food and service were very good, this restaurant is more like a club with excruciatingly LOUD music not suitable for dining. We chose to sit outside on the patio due to the music, but it was loud even out there! Unfortunately, we will not return.

There's a fine line between relaxed dining and server neglect. This was indifference on his part. My lobster tail was extremely tough. I could barely cut through it with my knife. I needed a steak knife. My husband's snapper was good. Will not go back.

Tried on a recommendation. Parking a bit of a hassle. Very lovely second floor setting on the Intercostal and the restaurant was very nicely decorated. The service was great. The Bronzino special was excellent as was the Lobster Ravioli. A beef and veal in sauce was also ordered but was deemed just OK. The star of the meal was the Lobster Bisque. Could have been happy with two bowls for dinner! Overall a good experience. Would recommend and return.
