I made reservation for my wedding anniversary 20 days in advance. I clearly wrote in the note that I am celebrating special occasion. On the anniversary day we arrived 10 minutes before the reservation then we checked in with the receptionist. We have been told to wait by the bar. Surprisingly a group of six arrived with us and they were late for their 7:30PM reservation and they have been seated ...WHAT. I told my wife maybe we will wait couple of minutes and then we will get our table. But we waited for AN HOUR, yes an hour. While we are waiting a lot of people checked in and some of them were seated and some were waiting, what was the concept behind that NO CLUE. My wife was recently discharge from hospital and she was standing for an hour waiting for the table. The server was good as well as the food. It was an awful experience to celebrate very special occasion in such way.

The blue fish appetizer was way over-priced at $40 for 5 very thin slices of sushi. It was supposed to be treated with a flame at at the table but was not. The salmon was just average. The filet mignon steak was very good. The scallops and califlower were very basic. The kit meat dessert was very good. Seemed overpriced for the quality of the food in general. Would not return but it was a nice ambience.

Had a reservation for 8:15 (had to wait about 25-30 minutes because I was told there were crowded). The waiter had a very “in your face” approach, which was a bit off-putting. He talked way too fast when recommending/sharing specials of the day and I could not hear him over the noise. He also seemed a bit condescending when offering water options and when I asked for the dessert menu (as a friend wanted dessert as her meal). He got a little better as the night went on but what I noticed is his energy was too high and he wasn’t paying much attention to detail. I understand the restaurant is loud and waiters are busy BUT waiters get into a ROUTINE instead of slowing down and treating each experience in a unique way. The ambiance is absolutely GORGEOUS; however, this being our first time there, it was not the ideal service/experience and although I would recommend it to others, I may think twice about returning.

I feel like the other side of the restaurant "behind the bar" is the "cool side". I was on the tourist side.. I hate sitting so close to other tables because both tables on both sides of us were listening intently to our conversation and it was very annoying. If it's just 2 people they will likely sit you against the wall there and you will have NO privacy. Other than that, the waiter was great. Food was amazing.

We arrived slightly early for our reservation and checked in... twice. We were told multiple times that we'd be seated "real soon now" by two different people (I heard the same line used with other people waiting). We were seated about 45 minutes after our reservation. I understand that it's not an exact science, but if you're not seated within 10-15 minutes of a reservation, I'd expect at least an apology, but nothing. I also heard this from several other parties, so clearly the staff are unable to manage reservations and need to revisit how that works. The waiter was rude in manner and in his handling of things, nearly hitting my wife in the face with a fork. The bussers were nice at least. The lobster was good, although with far too much lemon. The filet was perfectly cooked, which was nice, but it was smothered in a sauce that was too sweet, especially for steak. Overall, this was a lot of money and trouble for a mediocre experience.

This was my first time at Catch and after hearing all about it, I had really high expectations. Safe to say, it still exceeded them! The staff are very kind, the sushi is amazing, and you 100% have to get dessert.

My husband hates truffle anything and I’m not really a fan either but they had this truffle sashimi plate we ordered and it was Ahhhh-mazing! We kept the sauce to use for dip for other dishes we ordered. Everything we ordered was excellent so we ordered all the sushi rolls a second round (3 plates). One thing I didn’t appreciate (because we spent over $700 on food and drinks for 3 people and weren’t one of those social media people that come to order one drink, take pix for instrgram and leave) Even though they told us we have a 2 hour limit, we were there a little over the 2 hour limit and had a bill for $700 (not including tip), they didn’t directly tell us to leave but they turned on the heater right above our table to max heat which was annoying since we had been drinking...that definitely brought my mood down after having fun...heat and alcohol DO NOT mix. They also brought the check without asking for it which was also annoying...that is why I gave it 4 stars...BUT we’ll definitly be back! the food was too amazing not to go back.

Seating was a disaster. Sat down just before 10 for an 8:30 reservation. Not cool. Hostesses and managers gave no info and blamed it on other tables not getting up. Doubt it! They probably gave away our table and lied to us.
That being said they did try to make it up to us by sending us 3 small plates for appetizers and a dessert. Overall left a really bad taste in our mouth as we all looked forward to eating there.

I really struggle with a restaurant that has so many touchpoints but only emphasizes customer service from the server POV and not from the level of the whole staff. From the doorman/ground floor reservationist to the host stand, this is a restaurant the truly attempts to deliver the "we can't be bothered, we are very important..." energy and it just simply doesn't make it worth while for the mediocrity of the food.

Went for Sat brunch around noon. They had a price fixe menu, two ppl for $85 that gives you an appetizer, two entrees and one side to share, plus a bottle of Cava and a dessert to share. Insane amount of food and alcohol for a great price. Food was very tasty, well seasoned. Server was great and very attentive. Fun people watching for a Saturday afternoon.

I was left a little cold. It is a very well designed space but filled with a bunch of 20 somethings thinking they have arrived. Prices are quite high. The waiter recommended a $99 seafood tower as an appetizer. This is what I call a concept restaurant and not chef driven.
We could have easily touched the tables on each side of us as we were seated on a banquet. Literally when you got up you had to turn and shimmy sideways not to have your butt nail the neighbors table. Everything we ordered tasted good. Expect to be in the $150/person price range with drinks and food. We kept it in check by ordering a salad, 3 sushi rolls, lettuce cups and two vegetable sides. We didn’t care to order a main. All plates are brought out as the kitchen prepares them and are sharing plates. We also didn’t order dessert which ran $17-20...I mean really. This restaurant is in a great location, decent food but quite overpriced and the crowd of wanna be’s did not appeal to me.
I would go for cocktails and appetizers and judge for oneself.

Catch is always a win! Great food and service. I’m vegan and my family isn’t so it’s nice to go to a seafood place that has a little bit of everything. Our server Remington was a true delight and the special nagiri dish was a real treat for my mom. We sat outside and it was a bit quieter than indoors so I recommend that area if you can.

Best dishes:
Vegan- Caesar salad, sweet potato gnocchi, truffle fries and the cauliflower!
Non-Vegan: truffle sashimi and the seafood gnocchi

CATCH LA's atmosphere is stunning and the food is exceptional as well. We were slightly disappointed in the service. The gentlemen busing the tables were almost pushy to clear our table as they are held to never allowing a used dish to be left on the table. Many times we had to ask them to not take our plates as we were still enjoying our food. We also were surprised that when they placed the Branzino (the entire fish - it's a shared dish for 3 to 4 people) on our table - the wait staff refused to serve it to the table. Surprising for such a nice restaurant. Other than those two issues - it's a great restaurant and one I would frequent again.

Food good overall. Cooked dishes 2 were very good. 2 mediocre. Seafood tower excellent. I felt the buss boys were a little pushy in clearing dishes when items were not finished. I am sure there is a management push to turn tables?

While the waiter was nice I felt his behavior over figuring out how I dissected the $450.00 Restaurant bill for my 3 friends to take care of the tip was embarrassing for an establishment of any kind- never mind CATCH. He grabbed the slips to add everything up the second we signed our respective receipts. He also asked me directly how I arrived at the amounts put on my 3 friends debit cards. I think that is inappropriate behavior! All totaled he received a tip of $81. I was appalled to see this behavior. CATCH - NOT ACCEPTABLE. FYI - I am a banker and luckily knowing how to add is required for my job! :-)
