Not a restaurant that I would go to again. Servers were helpful and kind but food was disapointing:fish dish tasted like frozen fish,beans like canned beans,crab cakes no taste at all. Creme brûlée was tasty. Disapointing for 50+$(not includind drinks)

This restaurant is located in the Hyatt and I would totally recommend this place. This is the second time that I've been here and it definitely did not disappoint. We did make reservations for 630 and it wasn't very busy when we first got there, but shortly after, people started to pour in and it ended up being packed. if... More

I was looking forward to going here with 4 coworkers as it looked interesting and I was needing some seafood. It was a. Yay night and we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. It took a good 5-10 minutes for someone to come by and take our drink order. We ordered some shrimp for an appetizer which arrived... More

Overall, service was good, and food was ok. It wasn't bad - just not super noteworthy, in my view. We had the fish and chips and the shellfish with Thai green curry sauce.

Quite the contradiction - going to Alberta and eating fish - not beef ! Stumbled upon this seafood restaurant at the heart of downtown Calgary for supper during a recent visit. Receptionist was nice and friendly and found our group a large table. We had fresh oysters that were delicious - half from the Atlantic, the other half from the... More

I love seafood so was excited to try Catch. The minute you walk it the warm atmosphere welcomes you to an old world charm of rich wood décor. The staff is very friendly & polite. We had a couple of appetizers - the Wonton Tempura Crusted Prawns were so original and DELICIOUS!!! The Panseared Hokkaido Scallops - left something to... More

Great place in the lobby of the downtown Hyatt Regency, were there and had 4 different types of oysters and everyone was delish. Fish & chips were great, arctic char was fabulous and the trout was delish. Great bar atmosphere, great service and pretty amazing considering it's inside a hotel.

As a landlocked city finding good seafood in Calgary can be a challenge, however I've been to Catch many times over the years and my latest visit did not disappoint. My friend and I went in to satisfy our insatiable appetite for oysters and decided to also try a seafood tower. Since there were only 2 of us we chose... More
