This place is the bees knees! Lovely spot with great staff and wonderful food. Great place to just relax - they never rush you. So glad we found it
Was a little disappointing. I was in Anaheim on business and went off the Open Table review. I live in New Orleans. Took several minutes to take our drink order from initial sitting and then get them. I don't know if the waiter was that busy or didn't know how to time visits between tables, and there were not many tables. Never asked if we wanted another drink or round. The Lobster Bisque was really good. My guests said the mushrooms were good too. The steak was really dry and not too flavorful. It seemed it wanted to be an upscale sports bar and have fine dining area. Unfortunately, the experience was OK.
We had such a great time. The food was outstanding and our server Nicki was wonderful.
Nice place that lets you feel you are away from the Disney throng! Enjoyed our dinner with only a few glitches.... the place gets noisy, the AC vent was over our booth which was a distraction while eating even for the guys at our table ( it was too cold)! I’d go back, enjoyed the calamari, the scallops and the sea bass. Coctail was not terrific given it was easy ( dirty martini.. hey.. you guys.. where are the olives? ). Server was lovely and ambiance was nice. The table next to us began to talk so loudly that we could not hear ourselves ( large group of 15 .. men/ women). Still.. it’s a good option for Anaheim.. !
Service was decent. I ordered the 8-oz Filet Mignon ($45.99), but the server brought me an 8-oz Top Sirlon. I told him this was not a Filet Mignon. The server insisted it was, but just butterflied.
I refused to argue with the server and create a scene in public. The steak was just an ordinary thin sliced Top Sirlon. A Filet Mignon butterflied would have looked like goggles without a frame. I was so very disappointed. I paid $45.99 for a Top Sirlon steak disguised as a Filet Mignon. My wife ordered the Chilean Sea Bass which was originally $40.99. The server said there was a special on the Chilean Sea Bass which included scallops and shrimp, so we bit. We were utterly shocked when we were charged $65.99 for the Chilean Sea Bass with the scallops and shrimp. I will never ever come here again nor recommend this place to anyone I know for fine dining. This place is a complete waste of money for dinner we received. Now I know why this restaurant wasn't even half filled for dining on a Saturday night. Over priced meals that are below average taste.
Very nice meal, great service and food
Upscale decor , excellent menu and service. I will go again.
THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE BEEN TO THIS LOCATION SINCE IT WAS ON STATE COLLEGE. IT ABSOLUTELY DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!!! MUCH BETTER THAN THE OLD LOCATION. FOOD WAS SUPERB!! I FREQUENT THE DEL FRISCO'S IN LAS VEGAS AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE CATCH REALLY OUT-DOES EVEN THAT RESTAURANT.
GREAT MEAL. GREAT STAFF. GREAT LOCATION. I CANNOT THINK OF A THING THAT COULD HAVE IMPROVED THIS EXPERIENCE!!!!!
It was an early delightful dinner for Valentine's Day and the food was exceptional as always. The salmon was mouth-watering and the menu anything but boring--seems like there is always something new to try.
Been to The Catch dozens of times. The service is great and the food is always terrific.
No more high end Newport Beach restaurants for us. The Catch has better food, better service, and ample parking if you don’t wish to valet. We had a very memorable Valentine’s Day dinner with impeccable service by Phillip. We were treated like royalty and served food fit for a king. Best restaurant in the OC for a special occasion. $$ but so worth it.
Had not been to The Catch in a long time and the night exceeded all expectations. My wife made reservations for a V-Day dinner out, which we hadn’t done in a few years due to all the craziness that typically accompanies the day when dining out. The crowd was manageable and service top notch. The Catch did have a special holiday menu but also, to our liking, had their standard menu too. The raw oysters were fresh and clean with great flavor, clam chowder thick and rich with a plenty of clams. A huge tasty wedge, seared ahi and the kimchi brussel sprouts were unbelievable!!! Thanks for a great night out - we’ll be back soon!
Valentine’s Day. Nice meal.
My overall experience was great. My only concern was the limited availability of seating for customers who arrive early. My reservation along with about eight others was for 5:00 which was before the restaurant opened. Only two people were able to be seated in the lobby area. In addition, the manager had a meeting with the waiters just before five which caused the customers to have to wait to be seated a few minutes after five after having to stand waiting for 5:00.
Steaks are a la carte. They came with absolutely nothing on the plate with them. Therefore the presentation was very poor. They should have been dressed up to look better. My steak (16oz ribeye) was ordered as medium well. The inside was fine but the outside was burnt. My wife’s was an 8oz sirloin ordered as medium well also. It was over cooked, dry, and tough. The side dish we had was a fried rice which was good. We brought the remainders of both steaks home. My son says mine was “okay” but my wife’s was terrible.
Phil, our sever was very good and professional and the woman tending bar was very good.
For the prices it was not a very good experience . We had been here for drinks prior to an Angel game and The Catch does that well. Too many other good choice in the general area to return for dinner. By the way, our daughter and husband have been here for dinner and they too thought it was very average.
Our server was great and attentive. My wife ordered a ribeye steak and felt that it lacked taste. She was disappointed. I really enjoyed a great cioppino! Love the restaurant frustrated that my wife did not enjoy her dinner.
Exceptional service, food was very tasty. Recommend the table side preps of the Caesars salad and dessert cookie done with liquid nitrogen. Also had a great value on a prix fixe menu.
Fantastic food and service every time
The Catch is always good food and good service. We do wish they would use the main dining room rather than the side - it is more elegant and less noisy from the bar. That said we go when there is no baseball and generally fairly quiet at those times.
We had a reservation for 2 at 6:30 on a Friday night and tickets for a show at the Grove starting at 8. 90 minutes should be plenty. We let our server know this ahead of time. We ordered by 6:40 and by 7:35 we still didn't have our meal. I wasn't about to rush through a $45 steak so I called the manager over to explain. Although we didn't have to pay for the salad that actually showed up it practically ruined an otherwise nice evening. Thankfully Lewis Black was great. I will not be recommending The Catch to anyone.
