Great food with something for everyone

Dined on April 10, 2016

Came here for the first time for girls night out--food was fantastic! My friend had a full dinner (grilled grouper--wonderful, and you have to try the sweet potato salad side) and I had a small plate (grilled grouper tacos--highly recommended). Everything was delicious--plus multiple price points to suit any budget. Our server was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Drinks and wine were excellent. I'd go back and could see it being a regular haunt. If you're going to sit outside, make sure you find out which way the sun is going--we did end up with the sun in our eyes at one point. When we sat down, we thought the awning would shade us, but alas. Fortunately, it was a cool afternoon so not too much of a problem, but next time I'd scout out a better spot. Other than that, a perfect early dinner.

Party of four tried a variety of dishes. Items that server said were exceptional were not. Wings wee greasy with no distinct flavor. Lobster bisque had very few signs of lobster and even less lobster flavor, mousse pie was more the consistency of flourless chocolate cake. Nothing was exceptional. Most dishes were passable.

Brunch

Dined on February 28, 2016

I was pretty disappointed. I had been there before for lunch and dinner and enjoyed what I had. Brunch was not good. I had a burrito that had eggs and chorizo and it had no flavor an was cold. Also, we had chocolate mousse pie for dessert which I thought would be light and smooth. It was hard like fudge! Not what was expected. I won't be going back. At least not for brunch!

Dined on February 26, 2016

I have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed very much. However, this time I didn't even stay. Once we were seated a server never came to the table. So after 20 minutes or more I decided to ask the hostess if there was a server available. Unbelievable!!!

We hadn't been to this restaurant in several years even though it is fairly close to our home. We had a very nice dinner! The food was interesting and delicious and the ambience was nice. It was a little cool to sit outside but outdoor dining is optimum. A nice neighborhood vibe! We'll return.

Not Happy Valentines Day

Dined on February 15, 2016

Reservation for 8:15 Valentines Night. We were promptly seated, and promptly told they were out of the Valentines Special that brought us to this establishment. They also informed us that they were out of all fish dinners. The waitress was apologetic stating that they under ordered, and didn't expect the large turnout. She also told us that we were not the first people to leave and that she didn't blame us at all for leaving. The thought never crossed them at all to offer some kind of substitute. Enough said. After 15 years of marriage, this was our worst Valentines experience. Disaster-where do you go now without a reservation? Not their problem I guess. I would not recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

Big Party

Dined on February 14, 2016

We had a big party of 12 for Valentines day Brian was our server and handled are table flawlessly. Drinks appetizers soup salad and dinner were at the table in a very timely manner. Our table enjoyed a variety of the menu items from Chilean Sea Bass, to seafood dishes, steaks and the pork tenderloin which i had with the black beans. The absolute best black beans i have ever eaten. The acoustic band we could hear playing in the bar was really enjoyable. The noise level was not a problem for a Saturday night. Thank you

Amazing food and service, I had the macadamia nut encrusted scallops which were the best scallops I've found in Tampa. Interesting twist to other dishes, such as lobster escargot and shredded pork plantains. All together great experience.

We enjoyed an early dinner on a Saturday night at Catch. The service was great. The food, as usual, was terrific. It was much livelier than we expected at that time (5:00), which made being there even more enjoyable. Great neighborhood restaurant.

Their Sunset menu is so reasonable that it makes you want to give up cooking altogether and eat here every night. The food is excellent- fresh, tasty, well prepared. We eat outside where it is a village atmosphere and love it! It can be a very busy place..go early and often.

Decent but not amazing

Dined on January 29, 2016

The menu has a decent selection. It is a higher priced restaurant so expect to be paying over $20 or more per entree. The chilean sea bass looks great, but is ruined by being deep fried. Wonderful fish that gets trashed. The filet was pretty good. The sauce isn't too bad, but not amazing. They should add a few choices for sauces. Green beans were quite tasty with a nice seasoning. Overall, not that impressed. It seems hit or miss on the food quality. We have been a few times. First time was great, then down hill every since. Places is always a little on the hot side. It is a bit noisy.

Sea Bass is Best

Dined on January 29, 2016

If you don't get the macadamia nut crusted sea bass with mango salsa you're crazy. Moist and flavorful. Come here whenever we can just for that. Other items probably great too but we just can't pass up the sea bass.

Decent, but nothing special

Dined on January 24, 2016

My boyfriend and I visited on a weekend getaway to Tampa. The food was average. I ordered the Macademia Nut Chicken which was recommended by our waitress. For sides I had plantains and coconut rice. The rice was good and the chicken was a little bit dry, but had good flavor. The waitress was friendly, but not very attentive. We waited long periods of time to get what we needed and she didn't bother to stop and check on us. When we were able to catch her she raced off so fast I was barely able to get my request out of my mouth. Overall, our experience was fine, but I don't plan on recommending the restaurant to anyone else.

Dined on January 23, 2016

We really like this place! Really good food, usually good service and a broad menu with several unique items that I haven't seen at other restaurants. There was a slight mix up with our table however we were still seated right away at a booth that we requested. Our young server was sweet and attentive. Husband had the salmon with spinach sauce. I had macadamia nut crusted scallops. I have to say their sides coconut rice and gingered sweet potato salad are especially delicious and I get them every time I go here. Music from the bar area was a little loud but we were still able to have a conversation without shouting. My only request is that they offer half size half price desserts. A small bite of something sweet at the end of the meal would have been perfect but I didn't want a whole slab of chocolate cake so we just skipped it altogether. I think they would sell more desserts if they offered them in a smaller serving and price point. Regardless it was a very good meal and I'm sure we'll be back!

Dined on January 22, 2016

It was very loud. Even though we had booked a reservation days ahead of time, we were given a table by the entrance and they had the door open which made it quite chilly. We had to request it be closed. I was expecting more of an upscale place, the tables were very close together and it was extremely loud. Not a great place to go if you to actually hear the people you are dining with.

Burger Night Rules!

Dined on January 18, 2016

Every Monday night I debate "what should I make for dinner?" First day of the school and work week is the BEST day to make reservations on open table for burger night at Catch 23. Monday's 5$ burger meals can not be beat! Perfectly cooked burgers with a heaping side of crispy fries. Just go! You will be glad you did.

Westchase Dining

Dined on December 28, 2015

With most of the restaurants near Westchase connected to chains, Catch 23 affords NW Hillsborough residents with a very, very good local dining option. We've been several times, and have found consistently well-prepared cuisine. Dining fare is modestly priced, and the wine list affords a number of very good options.
