Went to see Gord Goodwin's Big Phat Band and based on the reviews were not expecting too much in the way of dining, pricing or service and put up with an overpriced menu and not so great table location (with fairly good service.)The music more than made up for the disappointing dining experience... read more

Great atmosphere and a very cool venue. Do not expect good service. Over priced and nothing was cooked. If I'm going to spend 35 dollars on a steak I would expect it to be trimmed of fat and cooked to what I asked. Instead I got a piece of meat under cooked and 80% fat. Not impressed with this place...

Love the menu, the super club ambience, the best jazz associated music around - top entertainment, food is good, but they only have so many waiters and makes service very slow. One waiter to about 10 tables and they know this and don't change it. They have a steep service charge on top of your show ticket purchase and on... More

NEVER AGAIN. First of all, this review is not pointed at the artist that played the venue, Barbara Morrison. Barbara gave a great show. This review is wholly pointed at the Catalina Bar & Grill manager and owner. If I could give minus stars, I would. My wife and I had dinner there tonight. The food was very much over-priced... More

Go for the club atmosphere and top notch jazz. Don't expect fine dining or great wines. But the place and the music is wonderful. Service excellent.

We ordered the "Special of the Day" - Salmon. The fish was undeniably spoiled! When we complained, they questioned as if we didn't know what spoiled fish tasted like. They were extremely slow in replacing the dishes with another entrée. The manager was rude, uncaring and offensive. We were there for a dinner show to see Rachelle Ferrell. The concert/performer...

Came to see Steve Tyrell, expected to be impressed by Steve and his gang and was not disappointed, did not expect to be so very pleased by the wait staff, bartender, chef and kitchen staff. The food was very very good, the martini was perfect (so rare, sadly, to find a bartender who can make a martini in the classic... More

For a nightclub this is a cavernous venue. The entire "house" is seated and served dinner in 90 minutes. It is a chaotic experience. The room is stark and dark... There is a $50 cover which is reasonable for some of the great talent appearing. However, the food is expensive and mediocre. The waiters are pleasant but rushed and often... More

I heard that this jazz venue was located elsewhere before and was moved to this location. I found the place a bit large and not very intimate for a jazz club. When I heard that Steve Gadd was playing there, I had to go see this drumming legend. When we got there, they were playing a smooth jazz piece and... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
