Service was excellent! But unfortunately the food was almost inedible. The only good dish was the mushroom spaghetti, it was delicious. We ordered a couple of sushi rolls and the gyoza's; the fish was not fresh, I could only take one bite. The gyoza tasted old and soggy. It doesn't compare to the Catch La.

very overpriced, the food was alright we can get better food at other places on 5th ave, they had no oysters so that was disappointing. The lobster mash tasted like reg mashed and the snapper had no flavour. The waiter forgot our shots we had to remind him he generally looked like he was in a hurry but the steak was excellent. Over hyped over priced a cocktail is 15USD!

Andrea was amazing. She up-sold appropriately, was extremely attentive and altogether genuinely super friendly. She’s an absolute model server.

The food was very good as expected. We’d been in NY before so generally knew what to expect.

The one negative was that there were a few of the large crickets that were TERRORIZING our tables and the surrounding tables, flying at and around us- but understandably, can’t really do much about that.

Amazing food, incredible views, they had problems with the credit cards so it was cash only, and it can get expensive.

El lugar es increíble, el servicio muy bueno, sin embargo la comida no estuvo rica, ademas de que el precio es elevado, no hay relación calidad-precio, las bebidas si estaban ricas... el ceviche catch no tenia nada de sabor! El mac&cheese con langosta es una decepción! la pasta parecía marca Yemina y un poco dura. Vale la pena ir solo por conocer el lugar y tomarte un drink...

Very impressed with the location of this restaurant. They view is amazing. We had great service from the wait staff considering we had a party of 9. From the Sea Bass wraps to the Crab Tempura, nothing from the menus disappointed. While the music was a sort of deep house beat and enjoyable, it was a little loud for our liking. The only reason why this establishment did not receive a 5 star is because when the bill arrived, we noticed that there was a charge for water. Apparently every bottle of water you order is almost $8. I understand that if you are ordering premium water like Perrie' or something similar, but for bottled water, in Mexico, come on it should be complimentary. Be cautious of the water tab and have more alcohol instead. LOL...

Honestly, for my Birthday and not even being recognized this place really disappoint us and we wont be back. The only reason we went there because we really love the location at Beverly Hills California and food at BH was amazing, same as a service. here was not high quality dishes , way over priced a specially for Mexico and low quality of sushi and sashimi .The view was nice, but no one even wished a Happy Birthday or did anything Special not the best way to celebrate. We also were a little bit late, which we called and never got points. But at the end what bothered us the most the waiter come back and asked, where is my tips? what??????????????Is that a joke for over priced "5 stars" restaurant"??????

This restaurant is nowhere near Catch New York. Our expectations were high based on our experience in New York. The food was all just ok. And we ordered at least 12-13 items, none of which were memorable. The drinks were just ok as well. The ambiance is beautiful and the views at sunset were awesome. The service was good. Very disappointed in the food.

Our server was amazing! The food came fast, drink recommendations were perfect and drinks were also quick. His English was perfect and his service was high class. I wish I could remember this gentlemans name. The food was perfect, hot food was hot, cold food was fresh and cold. The ambiance was romantic and date worthy. Highly recommend this restaurant as a lil escape from the loud 5th Avenue. Beautiful views, nice breeze, good music.

Great atmosphere and the service was good enough. The food is average at best. Had the octopus to start, which was chewy and had an odd tasting marinade. Also had a sushi roll and the mahi special. The mahi was bland and the roll was a bit warm. Definitely would not come back. cocktails were good.

Dreadfully slow service, waited an hour for our food and when it arrived it wasn’t exactly what I ordered and it was cold. I ordered crispy chicken breast but what came was an absolute disgrace to the restaurant. It was a frozen chicken kiev with extremely burnt tiny pieces of sweet potato. It was completely inedible. The waiter took it away and in its place I got the chicken meatballs which once again arrived to me cold. They were so rubbery, warm in the outside and cold on the inside. Again inedible! Clearly bought in frozen meatballs. Couldn’t eat them. McDonalds chicken nuggets would have been better! Partners food was also bland. He ordered ceviche. It was old, grey and like my food, clearly had been frozen! A restaurant that calls itself a seafood restaurant and is by the beach can’t do fresh food? Fresh seafood? On top the white wine was served at room temperature and the champagne also. Overall a dreadful experience and can’t believe restaurants nowadays can still put out this kind of service! It really was horrible and to wait over an hour for inedible food! It’s appalling! I had to go to a nearby taco restaurant to have dinner after here as I ate nothing! I got delicious fresh tacos for a quarter of the price of this awful place! Overpriced and extremely poor! Get it together guys!

We did not know that “Catch” is currently being done in the pool bar area. I have been before and thought something was off when we got off elevator. The restaurant is dark so maybe they are working on it? We went for views and really don’t get it at pool grill area.

Food and drinks were awful. Seafood was over cooked and mushy for both our meals and for the drinks we ordered shots to pour in our drink bc they seemed so watered down. I remember drinks were weak last time. Sushi was ok. People clearly go for the scene. Go to maybe drink not eat.
