The staff were lovely and the food really good with a nice decor. Fairly quiet but it was a Monday, parking is a bonus in the area. We would definitely visit again!

The service was excellent and staff couldn't gave been more helpful, however ever we thought it was a bit pricey for lunchtime,. The desserts could have been scaled down for that time of the day, they were huge. We could have got similar quality for less money elsewhere, would go back but to dine in the evening.

Fantastic meal at Catch as ever. The food is so fresh and full of flavour.
We had Oysters to start were amazing - only complaint is we tried to order more but there was only 3 left!
I also tried the salt and pepper prawn bao bun which looked small but was really zingy and tasty.
For mains I had The Swordfish with Moroccan veg and cous cous which was cooked well and full of flavour and my friends had the mixed fish grill platter which they really enjoyed. We even had desserts so left fully stuffed.
The service was great - they were very attentive but I would say the table was a bit small and we had to keep putting things on the floor.
Overall a fantastic night and will be back.

Lovely vegetarian chips! Service was great as always. Only a 4 stars as the mushy peas were a dark green colour and tasted a bit odd. Hope they have the regular mushy peas next time.

We had booked this restaurant at 5.pm to have fish and chips as it was very near to the Yorkshire cricket stadium where we had tickets for the 20/20 match starting at 6.30pm.
It was part of a take away fish and chip shop.
The only other people in the restaurant were a family of 5 and a couple who were eating as we went in at 4.50pm.
We were welcomed by the staff and placed our order for standard fish and chips.
The food hadn’t arrived by 5.45 with no explanation from the staff. We were getting ready to leave. When a staff member game over and our food ‘magically arrived’ .
When we asked about the delay we got a shrug of the shoulder and told the delay was caused by the take-away shop had been busy.

The food was brilliant. Unfortunately there were no mussels left but my son chose a replacement which was fabulous. He wasn’t disappointed
The seafood platter was amazing. Great selection.
The setting is nice, not pretentious and good for children but also nice for couples.
We had a bit of a wait for our food but had been informed by the staff and we felt well looked after.
Will definitely go back.

Food and service was fantastic, the team were wonderful and accommodating. My only suggestion would be to make the "Vish" vegan option available on the menu; had our helpful host Riki not told us about the vegan fish available, I'd have settled for a random mix of items rather than a meal similar to the people I was dining with. But that's all I would change.

Best Fish and Chip restaurant for miles. Much tastier than Murgatroyds and far better venue / ambience. Unbelievable lunchtime deal offer and a cheerful service all around. Can’t fault the place.

Very nice food but portion sizes very small. We ordered large portion main meal mussels and sword fish and prawns and a couple of drinks one of them being a jug of water and the bill was nearly £50.
We left and called in at McDonald's on the way home.

The fish was only just warm upon arrival and there was too much batter. Considering social distancing all dinners 4 tables were all in one area!
Bryan’s was much better I will not visit again on my next trip from London.

Manager turned down the background music for us and dealt with a difficult customer professionally- the person appeared to be confused.

Food was excellent and the value for money was spot on, we didn’t know it but the kids ate free as it was a half term offer, the waitress was very busy but dealt with everything superbly. Would highly recommend, not a clean plate in site by the end.

Very friendly staff who went out of their way to find us a table in the sun but the service was quite slow given that we were the only diners! I would suggest sticking to the more traditional dishes on the menu. The cod with green vegetables was beautifully cooked and the fish pie was excellent however the prawn/swordfish dish did not live up to the description. It really needed a good spritz of lemon or lime juice and the paprika butter tasted like margarine. Didn’t notice the mango salsa and the salad had no dressing. The mussels were not the best but the sauce and bread were good. Our squid starter was absolutely delicious. The interior was stylish but we ate outside in the sun.

The fish chips and mushy peas were very good, but the plates were cold so the food didn't stay hot. We were made very welcome and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the 60s music in the background.

Service by the waitress on duty was not very good first he took out all day but didn’t actually write it down on a notepad. Which caused some confusion when the food came and there was first of all no bread-and-butter and we had to remind the waitress that with ordered that finally the Tata source came very late when my wife had almost finished eating her fish and chips. We were not impressed with the service on this occasion and so will not be returning to Catch for a while now.

Been to a different Catch, loved it.

This had different pricing from the website, the descriptions where not accurate and missed some major items, for instance the Cajun spiced prawn and crab natchos (£10). Cam with a prawn Marie rose dusted with paprika & missing the crab. The mango salad was missing mango. the portions where small. Service clearly had teething problems but could be forgiven as just opened.

Sadly left disappointing. Wanted to like catch so much.

Another super visit to Catch at Headingley. Prefer the beef dripping to the vegetable oil at Street lane but both venues are stunning. Staff are always very pleasant and attentive too. Look forward to a take away whilst in lockdown but will be back to the restaurant when we can.

Very quiet early Wednesday evening but we had a pleasant evening. The salt and pepper squid was rather greasy tasting compared with previously. Fish and chips followed, fish was very good, as usual, but the chips weren’t quite right and they were rather scrappy. Service was excellent and we received a complimentary dessert which was appreciated. It’s a good restaurant and I think we were a little unlucky but would definitely return.

Great food.
I had a grilled lemon sole ... Lovely.
My partner had a haddock and chips ... Great.
It would have been better if the chips I ordered with the sole had arrived at the same time, rather than 3 or 4 minutes later.
OK ... Apology accepted.
A good glass of wine and a bottle of Old Mout Cider .... All good.
Choice of music very good - - - A bit on the loud side for easy conversation.
We'll be back.
