Expensive but worth it. Good selection of foods. Everything was good and service was good.

The initial impression was poor. From the valet, walked through the door from what might be the patio. Bit confusing. Upon entering, no one greeted us. Then figured we were at the side of the restaurant. We had reservations but was asked to wait while they set up a table. There were empty tables all around so this was strange. Others came in after us and they were seated immediately. After over the time that past when we should be seated, we went back to the greeted. She almost looked a surprised I was there and then remembered or table was ready. Had I not gone back up, no telling how long I would have been waiting.
Sat in a back corner of the restaurant. The noise level for a higher end restaurant was off the charts. I could barely hear my wife over the table. Sounded like a noisy Chinese restaurant.
Up to this point, not impressed. But, our waiter Brando saved the day. Received outstanding service from him. His meal suggestions were helpful and checked on us just the right amount of time.
The food was also delicious. They named the Chilean Sea Bass legendary and I can taste why. Fantastic.
So, experience started out poorly but ended very nicely.
My wife and I will be back again.

The restaurant was OK. The service was good but the food was only OK. It is still old-school in terms of their dishes. The mains were very good while the sides were all fairly heavy. Maybe it was what we ordered?

First time at the Catch , loved our table , we sat next to Dewey Bunnell of the rock band America ! We were going to see them perform across the street at the Grove , they were fabulous! Anyway our service was fantastic but our food was not as I would of hoped , my risotto was not quite cooked and cold and my scallops were to salty ...everything was to salty actually including my chowder, disappointing but I will give it another chance 😎

I understand the appeal of the place, but I felt it was too noisy and the prices were too high for the quality of the food. The service was friendly but the waiter had to come back and confirm the soup we ordered (no problem) and they brought my wife the wrong side dish. My guess is that the server may have been new, if so it's excusable. I'm happy I tried it but probably won't go back. Parking is confusing so I used the Valet ($7) after tip $10.

They did not bring anything for our anniversary even though I specified it was prior to making the reservation. I don’t know if it was because we were two or women or they genuinely forgot but that was a bummer. other than that, great food and service.

Overall, we had an enjoyable group dinner at the Catch. We initially noted preference outdoor seating on our reservation but because we called to delay our reservation by 30 min, we were unable to be seated outdoor, which was disappointing. The food and wine list were excellent. Given it was a very busy night, service could have been better.

How much is the Chilean Sea Bass?
The dinner menu on Open Table says $39.99. The dinner menu on the restaurants website says $40.99. And the dinner menu at the restaurant says $45.99. Same dish - three difference prices. When I asked, I was told because there was a convention in town, the prices were higher. The top of the menu did say "Convention Menu", so that sounds like the explanation. But is that fair to advertise one price online (including through Open Table where I made my reservation? My server told a manager, who came over an explained this me and offered to buy me a glass of wine to "call it even." Seemed like a good trade, so I paid the higher price and got a "subsidized" glass of wine. Service at the bar was a little slow. Food was good.

Service was incredible slow. Despite saying how hungry we were, we didn't have our orders taken for over 30 minutes. There was only one server for the entire area.

We have been eating at The Catch for many years. We were surprised to see so few people inside for a Saturday night, and most of them were going to the concert next door at the Grove. We were seated promptly by two very friendly hostesses. Menus were dropped and it seemed to take a while before our server greeted us. He asked if we were going to the concert and assured us he would have us "out in time."

Our drink order was taken right away and we scanned the menus. It took quite a while to get our two martinis. The standard "the bar is really backed up tonight" excuse was given. We checked out the wine menu and decided to go with the Opus One for $41, asking if this was the correct price?!? The server assured us that it was, the menus were just updated. We told him to check and he came back and said "You were right. It should say $415." We then ordered the Stag's Leap Merlot but were brought the Stags' Leap (the apostrophe makes a big difference in this wine).

After being there for 45 minutes, our first course finally arrived. We ordered wine by the glass as our food had already been delivered. We still did not receive the wine until halfway through our entree. It appeared that there were other diners who were in and out faster than we were.

I had the crab and artichoke stuffed King Salmon which was good (but would've been better with my wine) and my husband had the blackened salmon which he said was a small portion and not spicy enough. The bread (when requested) was crisp and tasty and the lobster bisque was excellent.

Kudos to the manager. We asked our server if we could speak with her and he got very nervous, asking if everything was okay. We told her we wanted clarify the menu problems we had. She came to our table and listened to our concerns about the wine menu inaccuracy. She then apologized and offered a round of drinks on her. Our martinis were comped but I'm not sure it's enough to get us back there.

We were pretty disappointed with this place. The decor and staff were great. Our server had bad breath but only one of us suffered that issue. The low ratings are strictly for the mediocre quality of the food. We ordered 3 filets and the not one of us thought they were good. I ordered mine medium rare and it was so tough still. I’ve never had to use such force to cut a filet. It was pretty sad. We also ordered the gigantic lobster. It was over cooked to say the least. The best part of the meal is the bread you have to request be brought to you. The French onion soup was served Luke warm. The Mac n cheese was good. I was disappointed that they didn’t ask if I wanted to pack up leftovers because I did want that and bread. For the prices of this place, it is no where near worth it. I would have been for fulfilled had I gone across the street and got tacos. I will not ever go back here or recommend it.

We were on our way to Disneyland for the evening and wanted to try this place out.

Had the scallops with pork belly and the spicy seafood chowder. Both were very well.

Smells like TAPS

The service was good, but the waiter seemed a little overwhelmed with too many tables to serve, the food was a little pricey but the portions were big..,the only complain is about the steak ordered I asked for medium-well and got a really well and dry one. I asked about if it was cooked correctly and they did not bother asking to change so really not worth paying for something pricey that I didn’t end up eating

We had 2 salmon dishes that were well prepared. The salmons were moist and flavorful. The CHOPPED HOUSE SALAD was excellent, large portion and very tasty. The FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE and CLASSIC CRÈME BRÛLÉE were terrific. The service was great.

Great location next to Angel Stadium and a few minutes from Honda Center. Dinner before going to a concert worked out perfectly. Arrived at 6pm and on our way to the Honda Center by 7:45. Service was outstanding and everyone in the group enjoyed their selections. Definitely going back if we attend an event in Anaheim in the future.

We have dined at The Catch before for our anniversary and had an excellent time. We decided to do it again recently and it did not hit the same highs as it did previously. It was so noisy we had to move our table. The second location was better, but not great. Service was basically horrible and we even explained that we were not attending a nearby event so we had time, but the level of service was just not acceptable. When we asked for a utensil it was brought and dropped on the table in no particular placement. Let's just say the service lacked the quality for this restaurant.

The food was excellent and we still highly recommend it as a dining option. We enjoyed the Seafood Chowder (stew) and the Aged Ribeye. Both were excellent although there are not appropriate utensils for dealing with lobster and crab claws in the stew.

We made the reservation indicating we were celebrating our anniversary and no one at the restaurant ever noted or made reference to the event. We left it at that.

The service for such a nice place with many people on a business lunch was lacking. Only 1 waiter for the whole area not his fault but it took forever for him to take our order refill drinks etc my business guest had to leave before the check because it took so long.

It started off good, the place was fairly dead as we entered with an online reservation. Our waiter described the two choices of Oysters as larger and a littler smaller, we choose the large type, once they were delivered I questioned if we received the correct order, the waiter assured me it was the larger type. I'm sorry but you could hardly see these Oysters and the manager didn't argue the point. I really felt like I was getting a product that the kitchen wanted to purge. To top it all off the waiter brings me someone else's bill. This waiter over sold me on the Oysters and once I complained about them he was disappeared only to bring me someone else's bill. I would not recommend The Catch.
