Would definitely come back. I just wish we were closer to the area. Great flavors and everything was well cooked. I would say it's a nice balance of a traditional yakitori spot with an upscale twist, but not overly done in any way. Took my wife here for her bday, but would love to go back just because, plus hard to beat the Japanese whisky selection.

We arrived at the restaurant only to be told that the restaurant would not be opening. We had to scramble to try to get a reservation somewhere else on a Saturday night.

Most foods was not touched by anyone. Only 2 out of for dishes have been eatable. No Soda drinks (sprite coke etc.) No non-alcholic cocktails. So people under 21 have to drink water or hot tee. If you want to wat similar food go to katana, ambiance nicer and better choices with excellent food.

If you want authentic japanese yakitori, izakaya style, i dont recommend this place. But if you want try fusion style food and some interesting cocktail, you want to try this place. Our server was friendly and attentive. Ambiance... was clean, modern, style but a bit... hmmn... unfinished. I think if no covid, the ambience can be better.

Our server randomly disappeared after taking a drink order from us. We found him later at the bar drinking in “off the clock” clothes when we went to ask where are drinks were after waiting for them for over 20 minutes.

service is good but most the meat came in are burned.
most important thing for yakitori is marinated the meat n
control of the fire.

Service and food was amazing; checking on our status if we were empty and consistently refueling us to ensure that we never parched from our alcoholic beverages.

Living in Beverly Hills we aren’t afraid to pay top dollar for good food. To pay $100 for a couple drinks and some appetizers Downtown LA is excessive. Tasted good. But I can think of hundreds of places that you could go to get a better value for food, and not have to be in the dangerous downtown area.

I made a reservation for a party of two at about 8 PM. we were seated relatively quickly. They appeared to be short on wait staff that day but our waitress was very kind and patient. The restaurant did not appear to be very busy. Our orders did take a little while to come out from the kitchen and we only ordered skewers and the half dozen oysters. The drinks took a little while to prepare as well. Fortunately, I had good company so I did not mind the wait. The food is a little over-priced for the amount that you receive but I imagine the pricing reflects that of a business trying to stay open during the pandemic.

Otherwise. The staff is friendly, the food is pretty good, the cocktails are tall and strong but they're definitely an acquired taste, and the ambiance is pleasant.

The DineLA food was just ok. The only dish that particularly left an impression with me was the Bone Marrow. I would say skip the DineLA options and just pick what you like.

Also there was a large party of people i'm guessing is friends with the owner that occupied a lot of the waitstaff's time. I'm fairly certain they're not from the same household and I would consider it inappropriate to have such a large party (12+ people) in close proximity. Also one of those guests was not adhering to mask mandate and walked around without their mask.

Our visit to Hatch was overall a success. The food and drinks are creative and delicious. We weren't expecting to be in a mall setting, but it turned out to be totally fine atmosphere-wise. The only thing really keeping me from giving it five stars is the poor service. Our server heard our order incorrectly and charged us for something we got but never ordered! We also had to ask the food runner to send our server multiple times - it would've been perfect if we were checked on more.

Head bartender felt bad that there was not ice in my drink so made me a new one and on the house! I didn’t even notice there wasn’t ice. He was super sweet and it was my birthday!

The food was simply unimpressive..... 6 Shisito peppers on a stick? 3 mushrooms (described as a party) on a stick? Seriously....? The Hamachi brought joy to my woman, although two orders (just for her alone) were necessary to satiate her beleaguered appetite. Everything else was a sea of food amnesia. Drinks were decent. Service was attentive. This place is going to do well for now think because not much else is going on. they should really use this time to rethink their menu.

Food was OK - not great, and kind of cold. Their seating is in the middle of the mall walkway, and a patron puked halfway thru dinner in a planter. They let him come back and pass out at the table.
