Guitar musician played and sang beautiful songs on top of great food & service!
Overall great experience and superb seafood
Great spot! I wouldn’t recommend it if you worried about crowds. People walking all around with and without masks.
Excellent food, service, and ambiance. I will be back and highly recommend.
We had the halibut which was overdone. Service was slow.
We have several "favorite" restaurants in Carmel and Monterey area. However, the Catch may have vaulted to the top in our first visit. We were greeted with complimentary champagne and caviar (a nice touch). The host, waiter and associate staff were all friendly, efficient and added greatly to the experience. But the food was the star of the show. The calamari and crab cakes to start were delicious while the main courses themselves were at a whole different level. Each person in our group had different types of fish and we all agreed that they were five star from start to finish. My calamari steak was easily the best I ever had. In conclusion, the atmosphere is casual but the food and service is fantastic. We will return soon.
Fish in fish and chips dish was tasteless - not even salt an pepper on it. Hardly any better on it either. Sand dabs were no different with runny mashed potatoes. Had to smother both with ketchup and tarter sauce to make it edible.
Table on slanted sidewalk was not adjusted for comfortable eating. Made it difficult to sit and difficult eat.
WE think the food situation was because of pandemic forcing them to operate under not-so-ideal conditions.
Pretty good food, but excellent service and great staff. We had a great time. Would recommend.
Excellent food and service
Service was fantastic. Food excellent. Nice wine list. We will come here every visit to Carmel if they can stay in business...
It’s COVID.....outside dining, on a sidewalk isn’t cool, but it’s all we have. They did a nice job of trying, but sadly, the salmon was charred, on a bed of dry spinach. Service was attentive though.
Service and food was fantastic. We had the crab cakes, halibut and shrimp tikka masala. Recommend them all!
Due to Covid restrictions we had to dine outside, street noise was louder than we would have liked but that was a city ordinance issue. Service was very good and we would definitely return.
This was our first time dining at Catch. We were absolutely delighted by our experience. The staff (Joanna and Girardo) were attentive and friendly and the food was fabulous. I had the lobster risotto with shrimp and scallops and it was the best risotto I have ever had. My wife had the almond crusted halibut and it was delicious. We visit the Monterey area at least once a year and we plan to come back here every time!
We went for our anniversary and it was so delicious! The staff was so kind and tentative. We got the Crab shrimp ravioli and lobster risotto both were so good. The crème brûlée was also amazing!
This place was absolutely AMAZING!!!! I visited the restaurant for my birthday and they did not disappoint. The service was exceptional! The food was delicious! The ambiance was perfect! The owner even introduced himself and ensured everything about our night was perfect! Best restaurant experience I’ve had this far!
Great experience. Staff and service was excellent!! Food was very good and even sitting outside along the street was a lot of fun!! Highly recommend
Food and service were fabulous. The owner Bashir came and spoke with us for a long time, charming and dedicated restaurant owner. First time for my wife and I and two friends, for my wife's birthday. They sent over desserts to help her celebrate. Great food, lovely to be eating outside despite the reasons for it. We'll be back.
Everyone here is doing a great job under the circumstances. All staff were very kind, friendly and accommodating. Would absolutely dine here again!
Wonderful service, complimentary caviar and champagne and live music. We couldn’t of asked for a better date night. I highly recommend!
Special occasion even told them it was our anniversary when we arrived (they asked)
Wonderful 5 star service. The food was beautiful and excellent tasting.
Great service & food . Will definitely return !
We dined on Saturday evening October 17, 2020. With the outside dining requirements they’ve done the best they can with tables out front on Ocean Ave. The continual stream of cars going by a few feet away isn’t great but hey, such is life in 2020. The service was excellent. My halibut was excellent and my wife enjoyed the soy glaze sea bass. Hope to come back again when we can dine inside.
Amazing food and service! Very nice surprise with the amuse-bouche. Will definitely come back!
A delightful find for us in Carmel. Good food, fine wine, excellent service. And a strolling sidewalk musician, who sang great oldies like "Under the Boardwalk", but in Spanish. The calamari steak was excellent. Highly recommended overall.
Sat outside, busy sidewalk but very pleasant. Food was great. I had the ciopinno, my husband had the salmon. Great service, not rushed.
We enjoyed the Linguini with Shrimp in cream sauce. It was delicious, flavorful, and with a lot of shrimp. It was great for sharing. I hope they can keep the outside dining!
The wait staff was friendly and inviting. The oysters were ok but not much to write home about. The fish tacos were very large but the fish was low grade and just average. I would give them another go due to the industries changes with COVID.
Service was great, food was good, except for Luke warm chowder. Which we sent back!
The food was really great and the staff where on point.
Excellent new choice in the Demetra group empire!!
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend!
Service was very attentive. Great value for the amount of food. Very tasty. Liked the strolling, singing, guitar player too. Menu had a lot of variety from seafood to pasta, to Greek an Italian. Would definitely return.
My husband and I drove to Carmel for a long overdue mini-vacation. We went to Catch for a light, casual dinner. Everything was delicious; service was great, and the owner very friendly and pleasant. Next time we visit Carmel, Catch will be on our list.
Outside dining but on a decline so felt like we were sliding the entire time. Food was good but too salty.
Had a fantastic dinner at Catch. We enjoyed the garlic cheese bread, crab louie and shrimp pasta. Excellent and attentive service during the entire meal.
We came to Carmel last minister and could not have been happier with our choice to dine at Catch.
Service was top notch, food fresh and creative. The bonus was the wine selection where in addition to their list, they had a table with offerings for 50% off. We found our favorite Pinot and loved it!
To bad they can’t kept the outdoor seating once COVID restrictions let up.
The food is always excellent and quickly delivered! Staff is very professional.
Noise is only Ocean avenue, but we LOVE the outside dining, feels much more like a community that just eating indoors. Thank you for having the outside dining, we HOPE it never goes away.
Great experience. Super friendly staff. Delicious food.
