Wonderful, as always

Dined 5 days ago

I've been to Catch 35 a few times and it is always wonderful. They have stiff competition in the downtown Naperville area but they certainly hold their own. The food is great and affordable, especially the Grand Prix menu. The only thing I can criticize the restaurant for is lack of personality. In a downtown with Hugo's Frog Bar and Heaven on 7, it's easy to remember Catch 35 is a multi-location business and not an unique experience. Still, the slick and modern restaurant is delicious and had a romantic, modern feel.

This was one of those rare dinning experiences where i would not change a thing. All of the food was absolutely spot on - everything from the bread to the appetizers to the entrees and the dessert (and wine of course). The atmosphere was very relaxing and our server had the professionalism that we used to get during the Charlie Trotter days.

Memorable Birthday celebration

Dined on April 13, 2016

We celebrated my husbands birthday with a wonderful meal at Cat h 35 last Wednesday. Our server was wonderful, attentive but not intrusive. The wine list excellent and there was even a 3 course Prix Fix menu which we were not aware of. There were 6-8 choices of starters, main meal and any dessert on the menu. It was perfect for me and the salmon I chose was delicious. My husband had his heart set on a Sashimi tuna steak and loved it. We shared a crepe brûlée for dessert and it. Was the perfect finish to a wonderful meal. Will definetly return soon to Catch 35

Hadn't been for awhile because we always thought it would be more than we wanted to spend but you have to order from the fixed price menu, three courses for $35, great food, amazing value! Wine is pricey. Lamb chops are so yummy and so are the mussels. Special date night, we'll be back!

Easter Dinner

vip
Dined on March 27, 2016

We have been going to Catch 35 for the last 4 years for Easter. The food was good and service was good, could have been a bit more attentive but overall not bad. A little disappointed that the pre fixe meal option was gone and the dessert selection didn't appeal to any of us. We will see what happens next time.

Unique menu that was small and yet varied. Desserts fell a bit short in comparison to everything else and it would have been nice to have another seafood option from a seafood restaurant. Overall though it was wonderful. And we enjoyed the bloody mary too.

We have been to this restaurant many times before and have been very happy with it, however this time was not up to par. Things seemed very rushed. We got our salads and before we were finished with them our entrees arrived which were mediocre at best. We have always recommended Catch 35 as one of our favorite places to eat, however, after this last experience, it will be quite some time before we go back. We were treating friends of ours to what we hoped would be a fabulous dinner, only to be very disappointed. We can not say that we would recommend this restaurant for anything at this point in time.

It just doesn't get any better!

Dined on March 4, 2016

This was our second lunch because we loved the first and to try a few different dishes. We had Scallops and Calamari for appetizers, Grilled Salmon and Ahi sashimi as entrees and another order of Scallops. Yes, they are that good! You'd be hard pressed to find a pickier seafood eater than me. This place is Nirvana! Creme Brûlée for dessert which I can normally take or leave. It was excellent. Our waiter was a magician, there when we wanted him and scarce when we didn't. Superb service. Don't think about going to Catch 34. Just go! Catch 34 has just become my "go to" restaurant for seafood. Beats the pants off of places like Chinns and other highly touted restaurants. Go. You'll love it.

Restaurant Week Choice

I liked the options on the special Restaurant Week menu. That is what brought us back to Catch 35. Although I had a reservation, I did have to wait 10-15 minutes for my table. The service was very good and I didn't have to wait very long for the meal.

Catch 35

Dined on February 21, 2016

For being a first time patron at this restaurant I was happily impressed. The poke was by far my favorite dish. The key lime pie was very limey but good consistency. The noise level was the only problem I had with this visit. I felt that the music was a little too loud since I felt I was shouting a little bit. However, that would not make me come back again. Great time overall!!!

Overdone steak

Dined on February 21, 2016

Three of us had dinner on a recent Saturday night, during Naperville restaurant week. We each chose the less expensive of the prix fixe options. I had filet medallions and a kale salad. My two guests had seafood and soup/salad. My guests said the seafood was good. The problem is I ordered my steak medium and it was well done. My two guests had eaten most of their food by the time the server stopped by to see how things were so I did not feel comfortable having to make them wait while a new steak was prepared for me. The waiter apologized but it did not seem sincere. Nor did he comp us coffee or wine or anything (maybe they don't do that if it is restaurant week?). So I might go back again; hadn't been here in a few years, but won't come back in a hurry.
