The food was delicious. It was prepared and presented well. The blue lights surrounding the rooftop provided a lovely ambience. Unfortunately, our service was poor.

When we got there they had a fix dinner. Didn’t stay. It would have been nice to have known that. So we had a drink and left. They weren’t to happy.

Sunset Catch never disappoints! Flash fried snapper was amazing-beautiful presentation.
My only suggestion is the genre of music-seemed a bit “techno” but we were sitting outside so it wasn’t loud but slightly distracting because it didn’t mesh with the atmosphere.

Food was very good. We shared the grilled artichoke appetizer and I had the shrimp over broccoli rabe with a Thai chili sauce which was very good. The menu had a nice variety of choices. I recommend this place. An extra plus, there us entertainment on Friday nights.

Made our open table reservation with the notation, "celebrating Mark's birthday." NO happy birthday greeting whatsoever. WATCH OUT, the menu items on the menu descriptions do NOT match preparation. When we questioned our waiter about the calamari served with "fradiavolo" and stated that it tastes like marinara, he debated us about taste bud differences (I prefer spice and my husband does not - he confirmed that there was not spice at all)...our waiter, Murray actually got close to my face and I could smell is bad breath...NOT the type of service you would expect nor should receive. The Sicilian House Salad states, with "mixed pitted olives," however PITS galore, someone could break a tooth unknowingly. Both items should have been removed from our check as a courtesy, however were not. All wait staff should always have a clean pressed shirt, not so the night we dined. On the bright side the Branzino was deliciously tasty. Spent $175 for a dinner that left a bitter taste in my mouth...

We waited 30 minutes for our drinks, once they were ordered. Never saw our waiter during that time. Would have liked putting apps in While we waited. Meatball apps came out cold. 2 or 4 dinners came out cold. Complained to manager, who said they eventually came out right, so we’re good.

Picked Sunset Catch because it was in Pampano Beach, halfway point for us staying in Hallandale Beach and my brother in West Palm. Looked nice, being on the intracoastal waterway. We had a great outside table on the upper deck on the water. Our waiter, Murray was really super. And Sasha, our greeter and seater was extremely friendly and helpful. The food, whether Italian or seafood was excellent. Limited wine list but we managed. Great atmosphere and experience.

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.
