The peel-and-eat shrimp are great, and the oysters are served simple, as they should be. Drinks are amazing and refreshing. -Alex Eusebio, Top Chef
LA was in desperate need of a casual seafood hotspot, and got one in this hip venue. Locals love it for the atmosphere and seriously good fare. But beware - the lobster rolls are said to be addictive!

I absolutely love The Hungry Cat. Cocktails = STELLAR. Food = constantly good. Ambiance = lovely! And new years eve??? Amazing. Fabulous, love it, always go there. It's my local. Even if I'm not local
Best drinks in town, made by the best bartender. Ask for Brian.
I take that back it's a piskey wickle.
Drink cocktails. They are the best in LA.

Fresh seafood, nice, friendly ambience
Amazing! Everything I have here is just awesome.
Mixology drinks at their best! —Alle
Made with local vegetables and herbs, the Hungry Cat's Holy Mary (vodka, fresh juices from carrot, lemon and ginger, plus rosemary and parsley) is terrific with chef David Lentz's burgers and seafood.
the burger was one of the best burgers I have ever tasted. the cocktails are the best the grey hound proper and luke's lemonade are my favorite
the crab cake benedict is one of the best things on earth!!!!!!!
Get the proper greyhound.
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.
Über boozy dessert: housemade butterscotch liqueur made w/ Sailor Jerry rum, butter, sugar.
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.
Omg..the mussels are soooo friggin good...the pug Burger. The albacore special was insane.always a great experience here

The meal was fabulous and Patrick's service even better!
Hungry Cat is a wonderfully convivial atmosphere with great service. The cocktails are very good and the grouper dish is excellent! A modern and dimly lit setting providing a perfect mise en scene.
Ask the bartender for a wickle piskey.. ;)
Try the cold corn chowder soup, the burger, king crab leg, and everything else. Cheese plate is very fresh and served with honey comb.
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
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.
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 dozen...no problem to mix and match.
get the pug burger!
Got a food baby after the meal? Order the Ticino Digestivo: cynar, punt e mes, Satsumas, Ango, orange bitters
Menu rotates. Fear not the adventurous choice as it's always surprisingly better than what you expect. Drinks: greyhound, pimlico, anything with chiles.
Good Lobster Roll and Specials
Basically anything you order off the menu is going to be delicious.
