We had oysters on the half shell as app, they were very fresh. But we had to ask for crackers and horseradish sauce. Ha. We sat at a table next to the window so the view was amazing. We had the whole grilled lobster and Chilean sea bass and both were very good. The lobster was a bit on the dry side, but still delicious. The sea bass was very good as well if you like asparagus. Wine was good. Service struggled but still very nice.

'Went here to celebrate my wifes birthday, food and ambiance was great. Although they were short staffed at the time, only two servers going around maybe because it was a weekeday (tuesay). But overall, family had a great time.

The service was good, the view excellent. The value is good. Everyone in our party was pleased with their dinner, most of our 6 people ordered the king salmon. The desserts were also delicious. We were happy to be seated as far from the lounge act as possible.They are fairly loud in the lobby, and would have been a competing sound for conversation. so, if you are dining on a weekend and wish to talk, request a table away form the lobby.

Highly recommend for the quality and variety of seafood, tables are comfortable and does not feel crowded, excellent negronis, Gemma Gray, executive chef is creative and very friendly. We celebrated my mother’s 96th birthday and this was the perfect place for someone with limited walking ability.

A wonderful night out; beautiful ocean views, impeccable friendly & professional service, delicious food (from the sushi starter, fresh baked bread, to the mains, Swordfish, Squid Ink Linguini with seafood, Short Ribs with mashed potatoes to the wild mushroom soup and raw oyster bar and don't forget to leave room for dessert!), it's always a memorable evening and stay for the sunset and free live music!

Catch at Casa is top notch with service and quality of menu. I highly recommend this restaurant especially for special occasions and with your very special loved ones. The ambience is romantic and peaceful. The views of the beach are lovely. If going for dinner, enjoy the live music at the hotel as well. Don't miss out on this local gem.

Bad service and bad food, not a great combination for a restaurant. Not only did we have a reservation and have to wait to be seated we also had to wait a long while for some tap water and then even longer for our entrees. As far as the food, we had wilted Cesar salad and an undesirable sushi roll. The restaurant is also in a very open and loud hotel lobby with restaurant directly next to it. This place is also way overpriced.

Sushi quality was excellent. Caesar salad was excellent.
Unfortunately the Branzino was awful and dry, Brussels sprouts were chewy and tasteless.
Waiter was nice but failed to bring items in timely fashion. I never received my french fries for example.
The atmosphere was lively but the music was not worth coming out for.
Lovely setting for a sunset cocktail and some appetizers providing it is not raining or gloomy as it has been this month.

A real shame. Have been here before and it’s been excellent. The sushi was great as was the service. The mains were horrible and seemed like they’d been left at the pass for half an hour. A good chef would not have let it go out. The kitchen let the restaurant down on this occasion.

The room is spectacular because of the location and view. But the food was just ok. Plus there wasn’t enough variety on the menu and none of the oysters posted on a blackboard were available. There was one type which was good but not what we wanted. The sauces offered were simple and somewhat boring. My mushroom soup was dreadful and bland. There was just one waiter for the entire room and therefore he had trouble being a timely or attentive presence. I’ve been going for dinner and lunch since the room opened and unlike previous incarnations, the food was very disappointing. We loved the fact we could talk and hear each other.

kitchen does not seem to be on top of the situation. Food underwhelming. Odd Caesar salad with frisee, minimal romaine and next to no dressing. Sea bass entrée was average. service slow but restaurant did not appear that busy. My previous dining experiences much better but that was over 5 years ago.

Our seafood dinners were superb! Seabass and swordfish. Can't wait to return. Service was excellent. There were a couple large tables that were noisy, but the food made up for the annoyance.
A pretty room and if you are there during the day you will have a beautiful view of the ocean. A lovely place to dine off busy Ocean Avenue!!
