CAUGHT BY CATCH! On 2/17/2012, A friend and I went to Catch because of a Groupon coupon. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly host, Todd, who showed us both rooms and said we could pick where we wanted to sit. We came at 6:00 PM. We decided on the smaller room, closer to the street, and sat next to the fireplace and Todd gave us pillows to sit on since the chairs were wood. We then gave the Groupon information to our waiter and Ron, the manager, came to assist us, since my friend had not hit the link. Ron brought in an I Pad and assisted us in retrieving the code so that we could use our coupon.He was so sweet. We then ate Point Reyes oysters on the half shell that were extremely tasty with a Brut champayne which was exquisite .The dish was Fetuccine and Lobster which was magnificent. We did not have desert, because we were full, yet had some wonderful coffee. There was a piano playing over head and Alberto, our waiter, was very friendly and helpful. The ambience was beautiful. We will definitely go there again! If you want a beautiful evening, try Catch. We were caught!
I was there was for my bday last November. So that is how much I liked the place, I wanted to have my bday dinner there. So we now were a group of 10 and were served by the same waiter, which I still loved. He had this coolness about him. In our party were two children under the age of 8. The menu wasn't too accommodating to them so we had to make something up for them. But that was no biggie. The setting was still nice. we were able to sit by the window to enjoy the view and we were LOUD. If you look at this place, you would think that you cant be loud, but you can. it wasn't busy, so we acted as if we owned the place. they didn't mind. Its an Italian/Seafood place. we know the Italians get very vocal while they eat. So any who, the prices are a tad steep for those that do not like to spend over $30 a meal. this does include your entree and a specialty drink. I highly recommend if you are an out of towner or opting for a nice date
Since 1970's, when first seated at this restaurant, coming from New England and East Coast fishing villages, this is the only place we consider a "must". We have stayed in town at hotels, bed and breakfast inns, wherever, but always make Scoma's our special dining. A visit to Fisherman's Wharf and this restaurant will leave you with lifetime memories and dreams of a return. Sometimes it is lunch hour, for a leisurely cioppino treat, best ever, served with sour dough bread, and more seafood than one can hope for! My husband's family lived in the Bay area for years, and we were directed to this spot, look for it down at the pier as signs are small. This restaurant caters to return visitors, not on the tourist recommended sites, but locals rate it best. Hope you enjoy it. Now in North Carolina where we have some good seafood also, but this is the place to really feel like you are in San Francisco.
