groove session event
My family and I came to enjoy the great music by the Groove Session guys. We really enjoyed the music and atmosphere! Can't wait to return to the Hip Kitty when Groove Session performs again.

Went to Hip Kitty to see Phat Cat Swinger & had a great time! Everyone, from the hostess that greeted us at the door to the servers, etc., were so nice and very accommodating! Great atmosphere - kind of early 60's lounge. We ordered off the regular menu - sandwiches & salads were good. The fondue looked great - will probably try that next time. The band was amazing, too - would definitely go again!

Phat Cat Swingers
Came to see the band Phat Cat Swingers. Love their music and they fit right in to the feel of the restaurant Hip Kitty.

Went to hip kitty with my bf for date night. He had never experienced fondue, our waiter was so nice and went out of his way to explain how everything worked and recommended his favorite cheese fondue. Great drinks and service. Despite being really busy hip kitty takes good care of their customers. The band was cool. Just an overall great time. Good food good drinks good music good people.

I am in love with the old fashion atmosphere at the Hip Kitty! The band was fun to listen to and the dancing was really cool to watch. We ordered the "Dinner for Two" ($108) and split it 4 ways. It was plenty of food since we had an appetizer at another place. Don't
go to Hip Kitty hungry. Service can be slow because they get busy and if you order fondue it can take a while. Our out of town guests really enjoyed it too!

Our Anniversary Dinner
My boyfriend and I met at the Hip Kitty two years ago, our trip was to celebrate. We choose the 'dinner for two' option which gives you a half salad each, cheese fondue-with veggies, bread, and fruit, meat fondue-he had surf and turf I had the carnivore, plus desert fondue and a bottle of wine for $110. The food was very filling and delicious and it takes about three hours from the time start to finish. They don't rush you through the courses. The chocolate was a bit then and left me with a "I want more" feeling.
The only downside was the band. We had to pay a cover charge of $5 to get in even with reservations and the band's amp was up too loud for me personally. Overall, we will most likely do it again.

Saw Tim Gill All-Stars - they were really amazing. Food was meh, but I don't care for fondue anyways. I LOVED the booths right in the front. Really romantic, great space.

I have never been to a jazz club. Hip Kitty was my first one and it was such an amazing experience! Great food and cool environment.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
My experience at Hip Kitty is one to remember. The food was excellent, the music was fun, the staff was friendly and inviting, and atmosphere was hip. I give this place an A+
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The macaroni and cheese is real comfort food! I enjoy the interesting music that appears there. The music is often something recognizable, but also sometimes a new sound. I especially enjoy the swing music.

Great place alot of fun
The Hip Kitty is a great place for and adult night out. The band The Kid and Nic show was a lot of fun, the food and service was great!!

This venue came highly recommended
This venue came highly recommended from the concierge at a hotel that I was staying at. I found the wait staff (my waiter was Ryan) to be very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Band started late, without apology, but pointed out the tip jar rather quickly. It would have been nice if they had all their equipment and technical issues resolved before they were scheduled to perform. I really didn't want to hear, "checking, checking, checking," and "testing, testing, testing." They should have had that resolved and ready out of view of the customer, because it gave the feeling of being on a jobsite rather than of relaxation. Food and atmosphere were great. I would give this place another chance.

Cozy, comfortable, hip
Hip Kitty is a really IS a hip spot. The fondues, the grilled cheese sandwiches and the tomato soup are delicious. It's an affordable way to experience a jazz/music night club/restaurant. The Sand Storm performed the night we were there, and they were accompanied by a belly and a gypsy dances who were impressive. It was very affordable for such an enjoyable evening. The total cost was half what a similar experience would cost elsewhere in LA. Be sure to check their website before you go, and make a reservation, if you plan to order fondue.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fondue... to be honest. Not a big fan of Fondue. but what is catchy is the Live Band they have.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been going here for years and it is always awesome! The fondues are great, service a bit slow but the atmosphere is so great you hardly notice! The live bands are usually pretty good and the drinks are always good! I highly recommend you check this place out if you want a nice relaxing evening away from the same old sit down restaurant!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the design of the restaurant. Wonderful performance by the band that night. Our server, Ryan, was great! Our order of grilled cheese sandwiches and dessert fondue was very tasty.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This fondue restaurant was
This fondue restaurant was a unique experience with the heating unit right on the table. It was easy to access all the main ingredients. Did the dinner for two that is a great value. The cheese and dessert course were the best. When you book a table the staff is assigned exclusively to your table all night and the service is excellent. The live band kept the place alive and exciting. Weekends are great if you like to dance and enjoy live music. Will come back again with family and friends.

Hip Kitty very hip
A friend recommended the hip kitty to me for my wife and I anniversary. And the place did not disappoint. From the waiter staff to the food everything was great. The music was fantastic. The atmosphere was very alive. I would recommend this place to anyone for a good night out.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a date
I really enjoyed my first time there. Food was very good and the atmosphere live music while dining was very romantic and nice atmosphere for an evening date.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Finally made it out to Hip Kitty
I've been wanting to come here for years. I highly recommend it. "Lookin for Trouble" did a fantastic job. We had a lot of fun. I wouldn't recommend the meat fondues. The meat isn't salted and it's very bland. The sauces they offered with it, I thought, didn't at all pair with filet mignon. I noticed that alot of the diners had ordered the cheese fondues. We ordered an expensive bottle of red wine and it came to the table and was WAY too warm for a bottle of red. I had to ask the waitress to bring us a carafe with ice to cool it down.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun, fun, fun!
Love the Hip Kitty. It's an adult place, no kids. Great vibe, great music and fondue! The fondue's are divine, the salads great, the rest of the menu is just ok. A wonderful place for a date.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
almost too much
Although I had been to the hip kitty before, my girlfriend hadn't and it was the first time I ate there. The food was great! We had the fondue for two which is easily a fondue for four. Considering the amount of food and a bottle of wine the price was not too bad. Amanda Castro was performing with her band and they were wonderful as well... Great date spot!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was great! Music was fun, food was good....but the martinis were the best! I do think the host should let people know how bad the parking is when they call to confirm the reservation by atleast half an hour. I loved the turtle dove chocolate fond!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
The jazz, fondue, and atmosphere were amazing. I will definitely be coming here again!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
the only complaint would be
the only complaint would be the sound was turned up a little to high and at times was a bit uncomfortable. other than that it was good times.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply AMAZING!! I never knew
Simply AMAZING!! I never knew it was there!! Soooo happy for the find!

Cool little jazz club
Cool jazz club with entertainment every night. Added bonus of nostalgic drinks and delicious fondue!
We will be returning!

Great music and food
We love listening to the awesome bands from the comfortable, cool booths. The stage, sound and lighting was great. The cheese is delicious!!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our great dinner, wine, and open mike fun. We will come back often I think.
Thanks for a super evening.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow, It was nice place with a great band and service was outstanding. I will be back with friends for sure.

Ginger and the Hoosier Daddys
We spent the evening with good food, excellent entertainment, great food, old friends and met new ones too! Great evening!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our table was perfect. we where at the front stage table. we were pretty much at the center of all the great entertainment. we could interact with the band and the atmosphere was very friendly. this was a great evening for us. this was our first visit here and certainly not our last. a great evening all around.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you came for the band, it was awesome. They interacted with the crowd, and the music was great to dance to. Nice wood floor and cool ambience of old time bar scene. The fondue was a bit pricey for what/how much you got, but the other options were reasonable and good food for the price. We went there for the band, though, so we were not disappointed. Order fondue for the novelty, not for the food value.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've seen the Hip Kitty and been meaning to check it out for a while. Finally found an excuse to and it freaking ruled.
The house band is talented and obviously enjoy their work. They had guest vocals from the Lindy Sisters, so the music era was more 40's-50's than jazz, but it was totally supper club appropriate. I'd go back just for cocktails and music.
Beyond that food wise, it's pretty hard to hate molten cheese in any form, the cheese fondue was killer. I did have a wee bit of food envy, the table next to us ordered mac n' cheese, and they make it tableside... gonna have to try that. The meat fondue was good, but not amazing, which was surprising. That being said, the dessert fondue, "Kat Nip," fixed any negatives on the meal.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Jazz
Fantastic Jazz bands! Some type of live music plays almost every night. One of the best Jazz bands that frequents here is the Atomic Sherpas. Fondue is great as well as the Table Side preparation of Mac & Cheese.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Super Spot, Spotty Music
I love the Hip Kitty but on my last visit, nobody was managing the sound, a really bad thing in a small club. Excessive volume will literally drive paying customers out. They usually do a good job, but this time we left right after dinner just to keep our sanity and avoid hearing damage. Best way to do the Kitty is check the bands thoroughly on line before going. Sure things: Circle City Horns and, if you are a hot blues fan, Little A and the Allnighters, with two superb guitar players and a great harmonica player. When the Kitty gets it right, this is the best nightclub entertainment bargain in the Inland Empire, fun for dates, a nice crowd, great people watching and a classic nightclub atmosphere. There's not a bad seat in the house.

Awesome Place for our Anniversary!
The food was to die for, and we went all out: we did the cheese fondue, meat and seafood fondue (we shared one and had plenty), and Bananas Flambee dessert fondue. Our waiter was excellent. He helped us with our cluelessness about fondue, and was very apologetic when we had to wait a while for the dessert, which we didn't mind at all because we needed time to get our appetites back, and the music was awesome. We stayed for over 3 hours, and I'm not one to do that. One of the best places I have EVER been to.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The fondue was great! We had front row seats and food was served in a timely manner. My husband and I had a great date night.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Meet with family for food
Meet with family for food and drinks. Mac and cheese dish was dry, fondue combo of meat and seafood was amazing. Amanda Castro was delightful and fun. I plan to return to try other dishes. Most of all loved the vibe
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun and delicious
This place is great for set night or putting with friends!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Sunday Night Jazz
Great Sunday Night Jazz especially when the Atomic Sherpas are playing.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
We celebrated our friends birthday here. We had a great time good music, drinks and food. Loved the decor.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent hot spot
I will definitely be back. The service, food, autmoshere, and music were excellent. Great place for a date or night out with the girls.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Girls Night Out!
We had a blast at Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue! Open table reservations locked us in great booth to enjoy the venue (which was great by the way), at a perfect time. We really enjoyed our much needed girls night out! Loved the food, really enjoyed the amount of time and service we received for our meal. We were really able to soak up the ambiance, and leisurely enjoy our cheese appetizer fondue, as well as our main course fondue! We will defiantly plan another "Girls Night Out" @ Hip Kitty! Loved it!!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great music and fondue!
If Griff Hamlin and the Circle City Horns are typical of the acts at Hip Kitty, you will stay for more than dinner. Great cheese, meat, seafood and dessert fondue. Excellent service! Booths a little cramped.
