The Skinny: Parking- structure off sunset, 1 hr validation Decor- stark Restroom- clean Coke factor- mexican in the bottle $5! Food- pretty good Service- inexperienced At noon on a Monday my friend had the place all to ourselves. Other diners didn't show for awhile. We sat on the patio which is completely shaded and asked for the heater to be... More

Hungry Cat, Hollywood is a reliable fresh seafood restaurant. It's a little pricey but enjoyable. Worth a visit.

The Hungry Cat was an excellent choice for a pre-play dinner - opens as 5:00pm for dinner. Severed up some delicious cocktails, using the mixologist's suggestions. The "special" Manhattan was to die for! Oyster shooters where also prepared perfectly, with unbelievable spices. Try the yuri masamune sake shooter with Sriracha. We selected various raw fish dishes, including the Rod Cod... More

I always have a wonderful meal at Hungry Cat. The food is always fresh and inventive. This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of LA. Don't let the location throw you off. You must try the raw seafood, and of course one of their signature cocktails.

After struggling to find a good restaurant in Hollywood, we visited the Hungry Cat. Though I loved the ambiance of the restaurant, I don't think that I have been somewhere and tasted something as bad as I ate. I had the johnny cake dish. The flavor combinations just did not go good together, and the food was unseasoned. I usually... More

I had eaten here a year ago and was impressed with the service and food, on our return to Hungry Cat in July our waiter suggested my wife and I try the seafood platter, he insisted we would both be hard pressed finishing it ( I had mentioned to him I was a very hungry cat). The platter consisted of... More

We are locals and used to LA pricing and quality. But we were disappointed by the Hungry Cat. The food was good enough, though nothing that makes us think we have to go back. But most irritating is that the entrees are all called "dinner" on the menu and priced appropriately for a dinner, but the portions are more truly... More

The location of the restaurant is not very appealing. It is in a non descriptor courtyard of a modern building in the middle of Hollywood. That said, once you are in the restaurant, it all changes. The decor is nice, the outdoor seating is pleasant and the food is great: fresh and original. The service is very good as well.... More

Pre-Pantages dinner choice. We came up from the OC for an overnight visit and wanted dinner within walking distance of the theater. Lots of choices but, being seafood lovers, the Hungry Cat jumped out at us. (Hard to find but not disappointed.) Good raw menu but we opted for a couple of simple dishes. First of all, server asked if... More
