    Pork spare ribs and chicken meatballs were extremely delicious. We had the brownie desert with mocha ice cream and that was very well done. Server was very friendly. A very nice place for a dinner experience. We will be back to HATCH.

    This is a great place to visit which is inside Macys Plaza in Downtown. The prices did scare me when compared to other yakitori places I have been to. But when we started receiving our food noticed that we did get more meat compared to the other places. But I do not believe it was equal portions compared to the price. I still feel the other places would be a better option if price was an issue. But givien that Hatch does serve cocktails might be the reason why. Overall I did enjoy my overall experience and the selection offered for both the food and the alcohol

    This was my second time at HATCH and unfortunately it wasn't as good as I remembered. The prices went up and some of the food I've had before didn't have the same quality and taste as when I first had it.

    Many of the sticks were good I would have to say the Brussels sprouts were not great. They weren’t grilled as much as they had the texture of a steamed Brussels sprout. It was mushy and not appetizing. The pork belly stick was unfortunately dry and a bit over cooked. Hatch is one of those spots I love to go before a movie and will continue to do so. These just happened to be meh.

    Nice little find in the Mall next to Macys DTLA. It's grilled meats and veggies which are one or two bites. The bigger plates for sharing like the Black Fried rice was just Ok. We saw people with the grilled short ribs that looked yummy if a little not he fatty side. we had corn (yum), Unagi , Avocado with tuna toast and the tuna was fresh tasting. You don't see Onigiri which is grilled rice balls on menus that often and this one was very tasty sitting in a small pool of dashi. Pickled veg was meh. chicken with green onion great. Service was sweet and friendly but we had to ask for water, an ordered plate came with the bill which wasn't cool but we accepted anyways. Like a lot of restaurants I think they are short staffed so be patient.

    Really enjoyed this meal ! We tried the avo tuna toast which was our favorite. The pork ribs were also a standout. We also had the black rice, salmon and bok choy- which were all tasty but I'd probably skip them next time and try other things. Everything that passed by our table looked very good. It felt a bit pricey for what it was - but I would come back.

    The food was interesting, most of it tasty, service was good. We really enjoyed the corn fritters, the Hamachi was overly salty, the karage chicken was flavorful. I would pass on the skirt steak, poor cut and preparation. I would definitely skip dining outside, the entire time we were there a person who appeared to be homeless was screaming at the top of his lungs. Additionally, there is a constant flow of people walking around and even through the outdoor table area in order to get to the other side of the mall. Not a pleasant experience for outdoor dining.

    Amazing service, delicious food and Ray took such good care of us the night before that I came back with my business partner! Big fan of the seaweed salad (it’s infused with garlic and ginger!), the giant 12in bone marrow with mochi bread and the salmon poke which was so incredibly inventive with shiso and edamame! I’m definitely coming back again when I’m in town!

    We ate here before going to see a play at Mark Taper. It was good food and beer. Service was quick but the ambiance was just ok. The manager seemed to be prepping the wait staff at the bar and sat at the bar right next to our table and seemed grumpy. The restaurant was sparse so I noticed him more than I needed to. The waiter we had was friendly and nice. They had a large selection of Japanese whisky which seemed to me the main thing here but we did not have whisky since we had to drive through downtown LA to get to the theater after. We did like the good beer selection though.

    We had such a great experience at HATCH. The food was amazing, the music and vibe were relaxed and welcoming, and the service was top notch. We were helped out by a younger gentleman with a great mustache, who was also the bartender. He went to college with a couple of our mutual friends, and he took exceptional care of us. I will be coming back here and bringing more friends because of his service!!

    Drinks and food are good, especially the corn fritters, salmon skewer and plum chicken skewer. Items come out when ready, which is ok. I would have preferred items served as courses. Staff is nice and they were able to seat my party a bit earlier than the reservation time. Wait staff seemed understaffed since I noticed they were attending to many tables as a whole, as opposed to sections. I believe they did their best and I would go back.
