The 400-seat space features an oyster bar and bistro on the first floor, an open kitchen and two chef’s tables on the second level, and a glass-enclosed lounge and rooftop terrace in the penthouse. Diners can choose from a wide-ranging menu that includes dishes like octopus carpaccio dressed with wasabi, soy and ginger; Dungeness crab tagliatelle with flying-fish roe and tomato sauce; and a crispy whole red snapper with oyster mushrooms and a chili-garlic sauce.

 Came here Sunday night for dinner with two friends, thank goodness we made reservations because we still ended up waiting about 30 minutes for our table. When you come here I suggest ordering a ton of plates and sharing them, EVERYTHING I had was delicious, and the cocktails are amazing. Of course because of the location be prepared to be overwhelmed by models and bottles but it's not too bad. Also be ready to drop some serious $$$. It's all worth it though, totally delicious (i got the scallop gnocchi, lobster mac & cheese, ceviche, some sushi thing and the shrimp) everything was amazing and I'm going back in a few weeks. 


Catch is a fantastic seafood restaurant set in a landmark building located in the vibrant Meatpacking area. This three-level seafood lover’s heaven seats 400 people, has an open kitchen and Catch Roof for alfresco dining. It’s also got some of the best people watching money can buy. The dishes at Catch are meant to be shared, so it’s super for larger groups. The chicken lettuce cups, crispy shrimp, and lobster mac n cheese are all winners. They’ve even got some signature vegan dishes like crispy cauliflower and sweet potato gnocchi. If you have room left be sure to try the decadent s’mores pizza or sinful chocolate cake. 


came on a date night with the boyf and this place did not disappoint. the menu is on the pricier side, but definitely worth it. we ordered the herb-roasted branzino and brock oven roasted whole dorade *still drooling thinking about it*. the place has two floors and a rooftop. 

Went here for my friends birthday dinner this past weekend.  The food was great, though definitely expensive. We were seated right away once our whole party was there and the waitress was very attentive and did a great job.  The only issue we had was we saw another server talking to ours making hand gestures to hurry up though we had only been there for 2 hours, so that was kind of a turn off but we talked to our waitress and she brought over some desserts after speaking with management. After dinner we continued to the roof and had a couple of drinks.  The roof was great though a little crowded as half of it was full with tables.  


Booked brunch at Catch to kick off a bachelorette party weekend. The rooftop was great on a beautiful summer day (though portions of it probably needed more umbrella coverage as a group near us had to be moved inside because they were completely baking in the sun). I was pleasantly surprised by how hearty and delicious the Farro Health Bowl was - at first it seemed like an unusual choice for a boozey brunch but it was perfect. The Avocado French Toast was also a major hit.


This is by far one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. Be warned: you will want to eat everything on the menu. From unique sushi options, to cooked fish dishes, everything truly is superb. The quality of the fish cannot be understated. I tried the tartare trio, the catch roll, the lobster mac n cheese, the tomato burrata, and the grilled octopus -- each dish was better than the last.  The servers were polite and super knowledgeable about the menu. Seating options include a well-designed indoor space, as well as a beautiful rooftop. I will be returning, repeatedly. 


While Catch is an overall impressive restaurant, the real stars are the seafood dishes. Expertly done with meticulous attention to detail, the fish here really shines. Recently had the red snapper over lobster mashed potatoes and the lobster mac n cheese. Red snapper was cooked perfectly with a delicious crispy skin. Lobster mashed potatoes and lobster mac n cheese oozed decadence. Both dishes were presented beautifully and very well thought out. They have rooftop seating which you should definitely take advantage of for some fresh air and beautiful views of the city. The menu is a bit pricey, so be prepared to spend some serious cash. I do plan on coming back to try lots of other items I had my eye on!

One of my favorite restaurants and night spots in the city! Great seafood, atmosphere and location!
