Went with a group of ~ 15 work mates for a team dinner. The apps sampler/tower was delicious. Lobster Tail, Jumbo Shrimp, Oysters on the half shell, calamari, tuna, and more. Would highly recommend if you like a variety to whet your appetite. We had a set menu to choose from. I had the greens salad, PadThai, and KeyLime pie.... More

I wanted to really like this one - very modern ambiance, good service - just a bit slow. Food was good - just something extra missing - I cant say but it was worth it for seafood. Try it.

We went to Catch 35 for the first time during 2017 Restaurant Week and opted for the set menu. Each course was delicious but what made the meal memorable was the excellent service. Our server was Sheila and she was exceptional which made for a truly excellent experience.

Good food, but disappointed about being relegated to the bar. We watched several tables stay open in the dining room throughout the evening after being told by the hostess that the restaurant was fully-booked. Bad business!

I went with my wife and daughter for Restaurant Week for lunch. They both had Filet Mignon Medallions with sauteed spinach and roasted potatoes and thought they were excellent. I had the Skate Wing Schnitzel - it was outstanding. We had the flourless chocolate cake for dessert and all of us thought it was one of the best desserts we've... More

We had another wonderful dinner at Catch 35 before going to the Goodman Theater. We have eaten here often and keep returning for the great fish and the new items that appear on the menu. The beet salad was tasty as was the Point Reyes Salad. For main courses we had the Chilean Sea Bass (really wonderfully prepared) and the... More

Had lunch here during the week. Glad we had reservations. The food was excellent! I had a Cesar salad fresh, and crisp. We all had some kind of fish. Everyone loved their dish. For desert I had the chocolate flour less cake. Again very good! Service was good. In the bar area there was a band set up so I... More

I took my husband here for birthday dinner before seeing Hamilton. The food was fabulous and service phenomenal. Great advice on wine and attention to the time so we didn't miss the theatre. Highly recommended.

We chose this restaurant and were greatly pleased with our experience. The staff was truly helpful and friendly. The food was great along with the atmosphere. They also featured a live jazz trio that was excellent, will definitely return in better weather!

Thank jamesdharris
