Seafood
Located firmly within San Francisco's Castro district, 2362 Market Street is steeped in city history. Here, Catch makes its mark in a storefront registered as an official city landmark that originally housed the burgeoning NAMES Project, which famously organized the creation of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The history remains with the building, but Catch aims to create a new legacy while honoring the spirit of creativity and expression rooted in its surroundings.

To foster this spirit, the chefs rotate their menus regularly, accommodating seasonal produce and fresh catches of local, sustainably sourced seafood. Each dish showcases these ingredients while incorporating Mediterranean influences and minimalist Californian sensibilities toward composition and presentation.

Since opening in October 2002, Catch is the perfect place to gather for every occasion – handcrafted artisanal cocktails and appetizers at the bar, a cozy romantic dinner for two by the fireplace.

    So sorry to see Catch close but so happy to be there on its closing night. Once again the fish was wonderful. I hope it will soon see a new wave of business for a new owner. A fond farewell to another San Francisco treat.

    I have been dining at Catch for the 20+ years they have been open. Mostly dinner, but brunch or lunch as well. I've also joined friends at their bar for a social meet-up. Service has been consistently good and professional. The food has always been great. For this dinner on a rainy night, I started with the French Onion Soup. Hearty, rich, flavorful and that ooey-gooey melted cheese on top. For my entree, I ordered the Fettuccini Alfredo with Pan-Seared Scallops. Oh my! Creamy, rich, decadent. Sadly, Catch is closing next week as the owner is retiring. So sad to see them go.

    Honestly regret going because it was SO mediocre. I had a stomach ache after we left. The food was not great and really random. I order the salmon and my friend ordered the short rib. Both had some Brussels sprout base that was spicy and super off throwing. Definitely not what we thought this restaurant would be. We thought we were going to get fresh seafood but even the calamari was below average. Would not recommend to a friend

    We walk to the Catch once a month or so. Food and drinks are high quality. The ambience is nice. The waiter is excellent about checking with the cook for gluten-free diners; we have never had a gluten problem. Overall service is superior every time. Simply outstanding. Catch is indeed a neighborhood gem that is consistent, reasonably priced, and always a pleasant experience.

    Catch is usually so reliable for an excellent meal, start to finish. My most recent visit, however, was disappointing. The service was kind but distracted; our appetizer, meatballs that we often order because they're so delicious, were under done. The main course was fabulous, so it wasn't a washout. When my friends and I walked home, we thought, 'maybe it's time for a new favorite.'

    We had a delightful time at the restaurant on Friday, 12/15. My partner, best friend and I enjoyed our server, the ambiance, and the meal. Cocktails were delicious and my meal was yummy. And it was so convenient to the Castro Theatre. I'm not deducting any points but I wanted to make a recommendation about the accessible bathroom. The bathroom itself was fine, but getting to it, required that I ask two very kind bar patrons to actually get up, move their chairs and stand while my partner used the facilities. I'm not sure what you could do, apart from letting disabled/wheelchair users know that they need to do this, but I am grateful for a disabled bathroom! And I know how hard it must be right now to have a restaurant. I'm happy to support this lovely establishment. Happy Holidays! ~Michael Wade

    We had a lovely dinner experience out in the covered terrace. A large fireplace sits right in the middle providing both heat and a great vibe. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly and the night we were there they had an amazing deal on whole bottles of wine. Service was quick and attentive. A+
