Just recently on the day after Thanksgiving our family went to CATCH for probably our 5th time. It was amazing as always, but the other night was ridiculous. In a very good way. The service was totally on top of it, we were greeted at the door, seated within minutes, we were greeted by our waiter, and our drink order was taken and delivered right away. The place is beautiful, a very cool scene indeed, and the entire place has a real nice vibe to it. The food was amazing, succulent, every dish, especially the do not miss Lobster Macaroni ( truly decadent ), the herb-roasted Branzino and crusted Snapper scrumptious, the sushi, oysters, and crab legs were perfect, fresh, and tasty, our waiter paired us with some great wines, and the bus staff was very attentive. The entire place had this nice downtown understated conversation going, it was packed with the hungry tragically hip scenesters, there was no rushing about by the staff, plenty to go around, and there was a nice "buzz about," underscored by a great music track that was just the right volume. There is no doubt you will love this new restaurant as much as our family does. Already looking forward to our Christmas visit.

Service in even the best Manhattan restaurants is crap, so my expectations are low. That said, you really just need to take my order and I give you 4 stars. Service and front desk here is crap. Fake nice or inattentive. Or really pretentious.(Think Bouncer and TSA style attitude that really makes you want to make comments about the powerless power tripping) Food at Catch, however, is amazing. Love the crab spaghetti and lobster mac n cheese for appetizer. The scallop with mashed cauliflower and pistachios is awesome. Top Chef Hung is the real deal. I would come back again and again for the food. Not overrated. Sushi was a little fishy so ok skip that. Really just wish that food service in Manhattan's best restaurants was better.

This isn't even about working out the kinks.. the service was beyond atrocious. We never saw our waitress and I had to beg for bread. We saw it at the end of the meal after coffee.. The sommelier was absent. God knows the waitress had no clue about the wine list. You do not need to make a reservation the place is huge and they have two big sushi bars. Easy to come and just grab a bite there..

Great atmosphere and I hope this place gains in popularity. The dungeness crab spaghetti was insanely yummy and so was the popcorn shrimp. The dessert we had was crazy good. The banana brûlée split. Share it between two people. I am still thinking about it. Pricey but good enough to come back!
