Description: Catch Twenty Three restaurant infuses its creativity with flavorful Latin and Caribbean influences served up in a casual, upscale setting. Island music is carried by cool breezes throughout the restaurant, which has the look and feel of a tropical resort dining room. Mouth watering aromas emanate from the pecan wood grill such as the Certified Fresh Seafood, Certified Angus Beef or Cuban Style Baby Back Ribs.

We were passing through the area and decided to try this restaurant. We had salad and appetizers. My husband said the crab cakes were the best he has ever eaten. The fish salad was also very good. Service was great.

We had not been in a long time, and we thought we'll try a Monday night. That was a mistake though We had a very long wait, and nowhere to sit while waiting (only one small bench to sit if you have to wait. When we were seated, nobody told us about any nightly Specials, so we had another wait until we could ask. We had a party of four, and three of us decided on Burgers, and I had the Grouper Sandwich. Everybody enjoyed the Burgers, and they looked good, especially for the price. This was a Special, on Monday night only, but like I said, we had to ask about the Special, very hard to find on the Menu. My Grouper Sandwich sadly was quite dry, the bread rolls didn't help, so I asked for some garlic butter, which livened things up a bit. The noise level in the Restaurant is incredible, if you want to have a conversation, you have to over shout everybody else. Happy hour drinks are not a big deal in this place, even the house wine is not cheap for the amount you get. And unless you just order Specials, your bill can go way up. It'll be a while before any of us want to try this Restaurant again.

When the weather is good, it is nice to sit outside. The food is pretty good, but not great. Hubby ordered shrimp scampi from the early bird menu. While it was good, I have yet to see scampi prepared this way with a tomato sauce. The "paella" is also good, but could better be described as shrimp and chicken with rice. If you don't know the difference, then it should be ok. The best reason to go here is if you have a coupon or if you just want to walk from WestPark Village.The early bird specials are also pretty good but not so easy to find on the menu.

Our party of four decided to try this as friends suggested it. The wait staff was good and helped us through the menu. We decided on the sunset dinner as it was before 6. Great offerings for a good price. We enjoyed Shrimp Scampi, Guava Ribs, Salmon and Pork Chop. Each different and each good. Came with two sides and dessert. Before dinner cocktails were well executed and the Coconut Shrimp was brought out hot and tasty. The whole evening was enjoyable but the noise level was a bit loud as other reviewers pointed out. All in all - well worth the visit.

We stopped here after a movie on a lark and really liked it.....started with the blue cheese apple wood bacon mussels and Ginger Cosmopolitan....excellent! And then my husband had the sirloin with mashed potatoes cooked to a perfect medium rare and I had the paella which was OK but not outstanding..., I would get the macadamia encrusted fish next time. The chocolate mousse pie at $5 for enough for two was the deal! Our service was really outstanding...very responsive and anticipated our needs but not intrusive. I loved it that it was intimate enough for a couple but very family friendly also...We will be back.
