Sorry Hungry Cat closed. Delicious food and Fabulous annual Maryland Crabfest.
Sorry to have to say goodbye to our favorite seafood restaurant but finally got into the last crab fest after missing all of the others over the years.
David Lentz's The Hungry Cat was a masterpiece: One of the finest restaurant experiences in Los Angeles for the better part of two decades. We've lost a real Hollywood institution.
Fantastic grilled Halibut and the lemon curd dessert was Soo good!
So sad this wonderful restaurant has closed. Really great food. My best to the owner and when he is ready would delight at eating at his next restaurant. Be well.
So sad to see The Hungry Cat go. My Seafood Stew and Pimlico Cocktail were very, very tasty as was everything I have eaten here. The Clam Chowder is one of the best I have ever had. This restaurant will be missed.
Food was great - the chef knows how to cook some white fish. Service was very slow and almost uncaring. Ambience merited plates to be $10 cheaper. Will not go again.
The food was mediocre at best. I had the seafood stew with about 1.5 mussels and not much else.
It was my first time eating there and I'm saddened to know that they will be closing very soon. The food, ambiance and service were all great!
Sad to see it go - this has been a Hollywood Boulevard favorite for us. Long live the Hungry Cat!
We ate here with 7 people on a Friday evening and the food was very good. We were a little cramped at the table but otherwise, there was nothing to complain about. Service was fast and everyone loved their choices for dinner. We all had dessert also and the bread and butter pudding was out of this world. We would definitely visit again.
So sad this restaurant is closing. It has really great and delicious food. Never had a bad meal. Sad face.
This place has gone down hill. The interior is lacking and the food options were not robust. My last time eating here.
The first time we went to this restaurant (Nay 2019) it was fantastic. Loved loved the food! So we went again in June but this time it was seemingly a different chef I assume. Both my food (the steak w/crab) and my husband’s food were beyond salty. I sent my food back. The server tried to make up for it by having a side dish sent out for free... but it was just as salty. While I was able to order something new (plain steamed crab legs which were good) we ended up running almost late to the theater. Very unfortunate.
I've always enjoyed eating here. Sad to here it is soon to close
The Hungry Cat has become our favorite restaurant. For our second visit we went before the theatre. This time we had the little gems salad, seafood stew, and grilled artichokes and fingerlings. Again one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Just fabulous.
SO SAD OUT FAVORITE RESTAURANT FRIM INCEPTION IS CLOSING. From a veteran restaurant owner. Best, freshest, creative and comfort cuisine. Sad to see you go.
One last visit to one of our favorite restaurants. Sorry to see this place go.
Tasty and fun the Hungry Cat consistently delivers a great dinner and delightful cocktails. Their Greyhound is the best in LA.
Worst experience ever. Waiter sucked. Over priced drinks. Mediocre food. Didn’t have the proper utensils to eat crab lol - only salad forks! They also put pieces of the menu that had the specials at the bottom of some of the food dishes. I don’t meant food safe paper - I mean straight from a printer so your food is sitting on computer ink. When we complained they said they were closing permanently in 2 weeks. Not surprised lol!
Extremely over priced for what you get. I got tempura fried snow crab claws that cost $26. I old got 7 that were barely a bite each. My husband got a lobster roll but they do not tell you what all comes on it. It had so much onion and celery mixed in with the lobster that he could barely eat it. In the end, we paid $70 for meals that were the size of appetizers and ended up ordering pizza at our hotel because we were hungry within an hour.
So glad we tried them before they close their doors.
Great food, nice ambiance and the service was excellent. Try the oyster shot!
The Hungry Cat is a casual and affordable restaurant. Our fish entrees were excellent and the desert was unique. I was worried about sitting outside, but the cover and heaters created a pleasant dining environment.
Really great service, great food. We’ll be back!
We had an outstanding dinner. Oysters, scallops, ceviche, and amazing cocktails. Sadly the will be closing soon
Great hidden spot off the Main Street. Delicious brunch and close to the Pantages Theater. Try Luke’s Lemonade!
Seafood is always good, burger is excellent. Always good to come back.
Love the lobster roll - the best in LA!
Hidden gem on Vine near Sunset. Very casual. The grilled corn is superb. The lobster is small but good. Recommended.
Great happy hour from 4-7 with $1 oysters and deliciously fresh seafood! Can't wait to go back!
We had a spectacular meal! Every dish was top notch. The little gems salad was wonderful; the oysters were fresh and terrific; and, the grilled halibut was to die for. Great service too. I wish I had known of this restaurant before. We now will go here before every Pantages performance we attend.
So sad this little hideout closed. It wasn’t the greatest, but it was good for a quickie seafood restaurant in the neighborhood.
Happy hour prices were great - can’t be beat.
We will definitely return.
Tucked away just off Vine Street, the food was good, cocktails excellent and a nice, chilled atmosphere.
Good place to go for lunch prior to a matinee at the Pantages.
It was so so
We had a wonderful experience. Food and service were great. Everything is freshly prepared and we enjoyed our meal. We will return for sure when back in LA!
Love love!! The food was suburb! We were there for my boyfriend's birthday. We both love seafood so the Happy Hour Oysters were the bomb! I could have eaten 30!
