Overall food was excellent!
We did have to wait 45 min for our food, which we did not mind at all. The only thing we didn’t like, was when the wait staff blamed “the new guy” for causing the kitchen to be slow. I don’t think it’s fair to blame someone who’s new & learning in the kitchen for the delay (they could’ve scheduled/someone with more experienced to pick up the slack if they know they’re busy all the time) ... the new guy may be the cause, but the guests don’t have to know about it.

The food smells, looks, and tastes delicious.
We had the Pork Jowl Breakfast Sandwich with a side of parmesan, smoked aioli fries and the Smoked Pork Shoulder Benny with an extra serving of meat.
I would have given 5/5 stars for service but they somehow forgot our order but made it up to us, so therefore 4/5 stars.
We can wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone! I'ts a nice place with a friendly staff.

PS. sometime in March they will be open in the evenings as well.

Booked few days ahead for 10 people, received confirmation right away. An email notification closer to date. I received a call from Catch 122 few hours before the set time to confirm our seating and to remind us that they will keep our table for us for 15minutes in case we didn't arrive on time- all these were great and helpful. We arrived just 2-3 minutes early, we were greeted nicely, and they had our table ready right away. The service was very nice and quick, everyone was friendly, the food was plated beautifully, tasted delicious, and priced reasonably. I like coming back to Catch 122 - it's always nice to bring a different group of friends, and each time were positive experiences. Thank you for great service, wonderful atmosphere, and tasty food! -Pat

Great value for $$. The was delicious and loved the wine on tap. We hope you might be open for dinner in the future, more regularly. It was a bit noisy--so adding some more sound proofing material would make it more intimate and easier to talk. Thanks and looking forward to visiting again.

Out server was great! He was attentive and kind. I ordered chicken waffle. Chicken was juicy and nicely cooked. Waffles were soft and I sensed flavour of yeast which I liked. It looked a bit too simple tho. Wish there were side of veggies or something came with the dish. Oh and I loved the plate! I like restaurants use good plates. My friend ordered One of the boozy coffe drinks and it was so good. It was my first time visiting Catch122 and I will definitely come back.

Celebrated 2 friends birthday and did the dine-out menu. Very disappointed with the service and the booking through Open Table as none of my request about the birthday celebration was being taken care of. Food was decent but as soon as we were finished, they gave us the bill and once we paid, no more water for us, zero service after. Meh.

Went for dine out Vancouver 2019. Food was excellent, they had a drink pairing as well that complemented each dish perfectly. After booking we heard that they mainly do brunch but the chef blew it out of the water for dinner. Will be returning to try their brunch.

Great food for dine out. I had the tuna, the cod, tiramisu. Everything was delicious. The dessert portions are kind of small. I expected the cod to be a bit better but it was still really good. I would recommend this place for dineout and in general.

I visited there with my friend a few days ago. Atmosphere was awesome and sever was also friendly ! Food was not bad because it was a little salty for me so I had to drink water constantly on my way home .but except this I like there. ( and it might depend on people's taste :) )
I recommend!

Fantastic and top notch all around. Reservation process was flawless. Josh (our server) was on point and did a stellar job serving our party.

The food...now that was on an entirely other level. Can only give 5 stars due to the platform, but it deserves a 10 star review. You won't be disappointed.

This was one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere. The staff was friendly and helpful. The cocktails were imaginative and refreshing and the four dishes, which we shared, were all superb. The burrata with heirloom tomatoes was so much tastier than any I have ever had, and the fried chicken dish was astonishingly good- don’t let the very brief description on the menu discourage you from ordering it. The roasted pork belly was also tasty and the madras curry with Morels and spring vegetables was delicate and delicious. We are only going to be in Vancouver for a week but we are determined to go back to Catch122.
