We ate early as we were going to the theater. The half duck and chop salad were excellent. The service was outstanding and our waiter was very knowledgeable. The neighborhood was rough depending on which streets you approach the building from. More

Seafood | Castro, San Francisco

We flew in from Phoenix to spend Easter weekend with our daughter in SanFrancisco. Due to traffic we were going to be late for our reservation. When we called Catch they were so accommodating telling us to take our time and drive safely! When we arrived at Catch nearly 30 minutes later we were greeting with kindness as our table was ready and waiting for us. From there things only got better! The server Andreas took very good care of us! The food at Catch was amazing! My husband’s Cioppino was the best he has ever had and full of succulent seafood. My Grilled Salmon was cooked medium well as I had requested and so good! My daughter’s flat iron steak (in the specials menu) was delicious! We totally enjoyed a relaxing and scrumptious dinner at Catch and will most definitely return whenever we are in San Francisco! I highly recommend Catch for delicious food and great service!!! More

Best French Toast ever! Delicious avocado toast, eggs Benedict, and drinks. We didn’t have a Bloody Mary but will have to try it next time because they looked fantastic! Wish our waiter had told us the Bloody Mary could double as an appetizer before we ordered. Great ambience. More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
