Catch the Sunset and Jazz

You're practically on the beach, but above it all and worlds away in a gorgeous dining room. Great service and seafood. Jazz in the nearby lounge. Spacious and gracious.

The view here is awesome and the food is too. Perched about thirty feet over the sands of Santa Monica Beach, with plenty of elbow room, is THE place to stop in, even just to have a cup of tea. The staff is always pleasant and helpful to the point of genuine kindness. Shocking I know but that's the truth.... More

I love this hotel! Such a unique place. Very nice ocean view. Customer service amazing. However, the bar is my favorite location. Highly recommended. :))

This restaurant is the perfect spot to visit with friends when you're in Santa Monica. We recommend that you reserve a table alongside the window so that you could enjoy the panoramic beach view. Perfect choice for drinks or a meal. The atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried. The sunsets are spectacular! Enjoy!

Sometimes lobby restaurants just don't quite get it. Catch gets it. I had an ahi salad that was fresh and delicious. The servers were incredibly attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend. The view is incredible - especially at sunset.

Found Catch on Open Table and signed up for a reservation. Had no idea what to expect. We were so happy we did. Catch is located in a beautiful beach front hotel named Casa Del Mar - an old beach club from bygone eras. It has been renovated and both the hotel and the restaurant are lovely. On top of... More

Beautiful restaurant overlooking the beach. Enjoyed everything immensely - the mussels and black cod were especially memorable. Friendly servers and nice selection of wines.

My experience began with planning the event. Vivian Angel helped me and she couldn't be more aptly named! She was an absolute Angel making sure that everything was arranged for my large party. Seating, menu....you name it. And she made sure I felt like my event was important to her and to Casa Del Mar. She stayed in touch from... More

Made the most of the Dine LA experience here. What could be better than a 3 course meal at Catch for $50. Each morsel of food was exquisite. Great dining for this value- what could be better. The abundance of beautifully prepared food was a surprise. By the time I finished my grilled octopus I could barely eat my sublime... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
