Food was good but not enough busboys to clear the table. I ordered seafood platter with 2 tiers I.e. seafood with a lot of shells, oysters, mussels, lobsters, crab legs, sea urchin,.... food was good. When main dishes came, nobody came to clear the dirty table. After I requested for service, I still had to wait for another 10 minutes, leaving my main dishes cold. Waiter just gave lip service apologies and avoided eye contact while I waited.

Good spot, delicious food, I just think our server had an off night. The rest of wait staff was was very nice.

Food was pretty good. We ordered mainly raw dishes and soup as we only had an hour to dine before a theater show.
Service was a bit slow and rude, perhaps maybe because it was Saturday night.

Had to wait for shell cracker for our lobster claw and spoon for the soup.
Proper utensils were not brought with the meal which made us rush even more.

Again, perhaps it was because it was Saturday night that service was not up to par, but you'd think youd have your best people working that night???

Everything else was fine, food was great!
I will still come back because of the food.

We LOVE this restaurant! We have been eating here for at least the last 13 years and the quality of food has consistently been outstanding with a small, but innovative seafood m. The seasonal cocktails are always a treat as well. It truly is a neighborhood gem (in the middle of Hollywood).

Terrible service. Only 4 tables in use in the entire restaurant and we waited almost an hour for our food. When I made the reservation I told them we had Theatre tickets and needed leave by a certain time. Needless to say we almost missed entry to the show.

Not the best hush puppies I've ever had. The frittata had fried oysters that were overly seasoned and felt like a lump in my stomach after I ate them. Place was empty for Sunday lunch. Don't know if that means things aren't going well here.

Hungry cat was a little expensive for the limited menu that they offer. Food was very bland . Menu in line doesn’t match there in store restaurant menu
They have a very limited bar and we’re out of two of the tea that they serve in the restaurant.
Undirtunately, we will not go back.
