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.

Very nice meal. Sat out on the deck overlooking the waterway and recommend it as they have fans and sun shades. The catch of the day was excellently prepared and the house made pasta was cooked to perfection.

Totally enjoyed every moment of our dining experience. The ambiance was exquisite right on the water way and marina. The food was absolutely delicious and all that we want was met. I will remember this location the next time we're in the area.

Food was good. Not outstanding, but good food. Service was very good. Only disappointment was that the menu was not reflective of the pictures (food gallery) on the website in terms of presentation and more importantly, variety.

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.

I was not prepared for the fancy atmosphere. I thought it would have been a little more casual.. However, we really enjoyed our experience. The atmosphere was pleasant. We were there on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was very slow. Our waiter was pleasant and helpful. The food was very good and moderately priced for what we ordered. The fried calamari was crisp and not greasy. I do prefer my calamari not as wide rings but they were good. The oysters on the half shell were sweet and fresh. My shrimp over rapini was perfectly seasoned as stated on the menu but the rapini was overcooked. My husbands fettucini with crab and scallops was excellent, great portion and presentation .

Server was very unhelpful - we ordered lobster which came with “roasted potatoes” and they were dead fried and hard - guest asked to change to mashed potatoes? Server said “no substations / if you want mashed potatoes it’ll be an extra $15!” Guest called the manager who graciously helped her - and I ne Er got my 1,000 points for open table even after temple bring the host! Where are my points? Overall lousy experience - restaurant was dead - ate at the bar - lobster was tough....going to Sea Watch next time.,,and have to call the restaurant yet again today to see where my points are!

While sitting at the bar during happy hour, the owner told the bartender to have a female group of three move to the other side of the bar because there was a large party coming in. I thought that was slightly rude. I would have left.

We then took a table outside which was absolutely beautiful. The boats, the water, etc... the waiter sold me on a special, the snapper. It was dry and flavorless. The calamari appetizer was average at best, while the ahi tuna roll appetizer was very good but over priced.

Food was great. I had Bronzino and it was wonderful. This was our first time at Sunset Catch.
We were a party of 6 and sat inside. Next time we will sit outside as the view is beautiful.
We were there on a Sat. night and caught a great band. we danced all night. Only issue we has was the volume of the music. It was so loud we could not talk when at the dinner table.
I would strongly suggest sitting outside when there is live music and walk inside when you want to dance.

The attitude of the food newer and hostess caused us to walk out and never actually eat at this restaurant.

Sitting at the bar for a cocktail prior to dinner started speaking to owner about parking issue. He raised his voice saying not his problem. It stinks and he knows it but too bad. His car was parked in front taking up 2 spaces.
He continues to lecture in the parking which at that point I could care less.

The hostess insist we sit outside that I requested in reservation. UNTRUE. I have an 87 year old mother who is always cold and never sits outside.

She said she finally found us a table inside but in a back uncomfortable corner away from the entertainment. There were tables in main section but suppose to be all reserved. When we would not sit at corner table and said leaving a miracle a table in middle of restaurant opened up.

At this point we were so uncomfortable we decided to leave. The overall attitude was horrible.

As we leaving I mentioned I would write a review about the attitude and her response was “WHO CARES” and turned her back at me and walked away in the meantime the owner was following us saying things the whole time.

Other employees in restaurant saw the issue and stopped us and asked if they could help and make right as this was as not the first time this happened.

Why would I support people that treat customers abuses customers.

Our waiter was not very attentive. She came to our table a few times and said “oh I’ve gotta go they are paging me.” Our drinks were empty, even water, we had to flag her down. When we asked if we could have the bread she said, “okay I’ll bring you ANOTHER bread”. We pointed out we had not had any. The atmosphere and food was good. Probably would have enjoyed it more with a waiter who wasn’t distracted. She did not give us the feeling that we were important to her.
