Nice venue. A little noisy-it was hard for our waiter to take our order when the bartender used the blender to make a drink.
Wait staff was not that knowledgeable of the menu but we were fine.
Nice birthday comp dessert.
Will come back since there are not many yakitori restaurants near us.

Had lunch at Hatch. Overall, food and service were great. All the skewers were great except for the beef tongue. The cut is a bit diff than what I was expecting. More like a chunk of rib eye. But other than that, loved all the items. Will be back!

We have been to many izakaya restaurants and were excited to try Hatch as it is in the neighborhood. Disappointing to say the least. Couple of good dishes - Black karrage and black rice was it. Rest was average, small portions (even for izakaya) and way overpriced. Waiter forgot to put our order in twice so we waited long time then charged us for dish we ordered but never received. Overall it’s not worth the money. Way better authentic izakaya places in South Bay than here.

I told our server that I was allergic to oysters and to not bring them out and they still did. The servers also couldn’t remember what they brought out, forgot a few items, were rude and interrupted randomly, and didn’t show up when needed. When I’m paying $125 for a meal (not including our drinks), I kind of expect service to be top notch. The more serious note was that they brought out items I am deathly allergic to. They also didn’t offer any substitute items for allergies. All in all, I love the food, the ambiance was great, but the service is severely lacking and the food is overpriced for what you get.

Hatch was incredible! I chose Hatch for my college graduation dinner and could not be more satisfied. All of the food we ordered was amazing and we couldn’t pick which one was our favorite! The waiters were very informative and got us our food quickly. It is a nice restaurant but not stuffy, if you know what I mean. I highly recommend!

Had a really good time here, although it was more expensive than we were expecting. $260 (including tax and tip) for three people! They bring you an assortment of cool glasses to choose from/drink from, if you order the sake.

Slow service. Food was cold. Food overpriced. They literally turned the lights off while we were eating.

I’m a regular here but it’s sad to see they stopped caring about the quality of food and customer service. Will not be returning.

Had 3 different servers.

I asked about my Yelp check-in offer 3 times. Never came

30 mins wait for dessert: Asked also 3-4 times and eventually tried to cancel. Asked for the check instead and the dessert came from another server. So frustrating at any point of the meal, but especially frustrating since we were at the end and trying to leave.

There was a long line at the door, better service would've opened up the table to new guests.

AND we didn't get our drinks half off for the Tuesday special deal.

the Order Employee on the receipt says Oscar, but it was a female taking our order.

A unique experience for some great yakitori and izakaya style dining. Great ambience with a wide selection of beer, wine and delicious cocktails. Food was superb and hosts were helpful. Get here while it’s new! This place is going to be hot.

Stand out dishes -
Avocado Tuna Toast (their version of crispy rice)
Black Karaage (their version of fried chicken) with fermented garlic ranch is so delicious.
Agedashi Tofu
Meatball Stick
Skirt Steak with Fresh Wasabi (thats right real wasabi)
Catch of the day with the shiso - churri.

Cocktails and sake list were excellent, overall a great experience!

Tucked away on the bottom level of the mall, this was a wonderful experience to walk in to. It’s simple but purposeful in its design. Specializing in chicken but expanding in to other veggie and protein option they really delivered. The food was delicious and our friends were wishing they had a Hatch in Alaska.

The menu doesn't list out what's included in the dishes. My boyfriend is allergic to tomatoes and doesn't like avocados, both of which were unexpected ingredients in the asian chicken salad he ordered and picked through.
