    A great little spot tucked away on Vine. Romantic and is convenient for couples. Their Maine lobster roll and pub burger are classics. Amazing cocktails too, greyhound proper takes my heart

    Delicious fresh cocktails and a wonderful lobster roll. The raw bar is open late... Perfect for pre- or post-show meal

    Not bad; not worth the $30 for a lobster roll. It was worth trying since it is on my route for work & easier than tracking down the Lobsta Truck. I'll track down the truck more often. Fries are good

    The peel and eat shrimp are my favorite thing from the raw bar. Highly recommend the mussels as well. Chocolate bread pudding is the dessert to go for.

    Oysters! Why have 6 when you can have 12!

    Renata Kanclerz · August 8, 2014

    If caviar is your thing, get the golden trout ($40 for an ounce, $20 for a half ounce), hackleback ($54 for an ounce, $27 for a half ounce), white sturgeon ($110 for an ounce, $55 for a half ounce). Read more

    If oysters are calling, grab a seat at the raw bar for front and center views. Order a plate ($18 for a half dozen, $36 for a dozen) or, better yet, come on Mondays for half-priced oysters. Read more

    If you prize your sanity, try never to bring up the subject of lobster rolls with a New England native. Read more

    Hungry Cat's cocktails are as assured as the langoustines and sea urchin from the raw bar, whose first wild salmon and halibut of the season tends to show up before it makes it anywhere else. Read more

    Don't miss the bread pudding! It has a layer of dark chocolate at the base.

    The Hungry Cat is rotating its soft-shell crab with bacon-wrappers w/ cornbread, squash, cherry tomatoes, and romesco sauce, or maybe crusty crustaceans w/ ramp pasta, maitake ‘shrooms, and pancetta. Read more

    You'll love the grilled octopus w/ pea tendrils.

    Tried lobster roll. Fries is overcooked and oily, the bun in lobster sandwich is dry and lobster is mixed with parsley which is a questionable pair. Strictly not recommended

  • DAN C.

    Just don't order the cat. Everything else is delicious!

    I like the ambiance, food a little salty, need better ventilation inside. Service was good tho!

    Great place! Highly recommend the skate.

    Crab cake Benedict and squash soup with stuffed squid are sooooo good. You won't be disappointed.

    Overpriced, weak drinks, and poor service. Won't be back.

    Very pricey and the sea bass is just ok and the pug hamburger the blue cheese overpowers the flavor of the meat

    Fresh seafood, nice, friendly ambience

    Though the specialty here is seafood, Chef Lenz says the variations on surf and turf are among his favorites, such as the house-made chorizo and braised clams, or scallops and sweetbreads.

    Hungry Cat is my new hidden gem in LA. The BlueCrab was phenomenal and the drinks could be a tad but stiffer. Overall definitely worth trying.

    It's almost a joke how XL this burger is, which makes it funny that the HQ Niman Ranch beef's also topped with avocado, house-smoked bacon, and Danish bleu cheese. Read more

    Best lobster roll evah! Basil gimlet or Pimlico amazing

    Incredible food and you pay for every tasty morsel.

    raw oysters! $17 for 6 and $32 for a problem to mix and match.

    The first rule of the kitchen seems to be: Don't mess too much with the fish. That means the Santa Barbara sea urchin isn't a source of intriguing richness, it's a sea urchin. Read more

    get the pug burger!

    Gloria Chin · April 22, 2013
  • Eater

    Lucky Peach managing editor Rachel Khong: "The pug burger [Ed: yes, "pug," not "pub"] is a California-y tower of thin bun, fat patty, avocado, bacon, red onion, bleu cheese, and more."

    Hungry Cat is our goto restaurant. It never disappoints.

    Best drinks in town, made by the best bartender. Ask for Brian.

    Über boozy dessert: housemade butterscotch liqueur made w/ Sailor Jerry rum, butter, sugar.

    Got a food baby after the meal? Order the Ticino Digestivo: cynar, punt e mes, Satsumas, Ango, orange bitters

    Caroline On Crack · February 16, 2013

    Menu rotates. Fear not the adventurous choice as it's always surprisingly better than what you expect. Drinks: greyhound, pimlico, anything with chiles.

    Amazing! Everything I have here is just awesome.

    Hungry Cat's raw bar and deep fried turkey got a cool feature in for a Thanksgiving special

    The crab cakes benedict is freaking amazing. Don't forget a greyhound proper or a luke's lemonade

    Loved it. We ate outside on the patio, shaded and breezy. The mussels were great (with lamb bacon) and the oysters superb. Wait staff is excellent. I'm told the lobster pasta is fantastic.

    The Pug Burger is delicious and they have fantastic cocktails. The Greyhound is well worth the trip.

    The cocktails are light, refreshing and deceptively dangerously strong :)

    Bomb Seafood. Pricey. Great cheese plate. Great wines. Good date spot, right across the street from Arclight

    This place made me a believer in freshly shucked oysters. Mmmmm. Also, amazing cocktails
