So, you’re in LA, you need a romantic restaurant, BUT, you have neither the time or interest in driving up to Malibu? You’ll find great food, attentive service, and fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean at the Catch Restaurant, located in the Hotel Casa del Mar. Table 24, which is nestled right against the windows overlooking the Santa Monica beach and boardwalk, provides impressive ocean views. The ambience at Catch is refined and elegant. As you might surmise from the restaurant’s name, seafood is the star of the Catch menu. A great array of chilled oysters, clams, mussels, shrimp and other shellfish is available, as well as Pacific Red Snapper and Hamachi crudo The Whole Grilled Branzino and the Day Boat Scallops “A La Plancha” with coconut cream, corn and cherry tomatoes get rave reviews from Catch patrons. If you can’t score Table 24, Table 21 is a great alternative, as well as several tables in The Terraza Lounge (just outside the restaurant) which cannot be reserved in advance.
