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.
