The seafood was great, we ordered a seafood platter for the appetizer. The quality was wonderful. However, when we got to the main entrees, quality declined. I had the Wagu beef and it was the toughest meat I had in a long time. Everything, including the brussel sprouts side dish, was overseasoned. All was very salty. Had a stomach ache... More

Came here with a good friend of mine. The place was quiet since it was in a weeknight. They have a decent selection of food but not a lot. The food was ok and the only thing I liked was the dessert. The main dinner was good. Price is a little pricey for the food and the area. I would... More

Tucked away under a tower building on Vine, near the cnr of Sunset Blvd, this is a great seafood venue that offers simple food with a twist. A great chillaxed atmosphere with very capable and pleasant staff. Peeled jumbo shrimp with spicy cocktail sauce and grilled, salted bread were fabulous. As were the mussels, oysters and marinated mussels. Enjoyed it... More

The wait staff and the host/greeter are very pleasant. The service is friendly and attentive. The wine is absolutely undrinkable. At similar price points, they could certainly manage to serve better wines. The food has been much better in the past. They seem to be resting on their previously well-earned reputation. At $133 for two people, the cold platter needed... More

On the West side of famous Vine Street, between Hollywood, and Sunset is a patio, and interior seating identified as the "Hungry Cat." There are no fancy furnishings. And during the afternoon, in the patio, there is a deep roast cooking container spouting a little smoke. We arrive for a late afternoon experience. (We have been here several times before,... More

Set off of Sunset near Cinerama Dome, perfect for after the movies dining...or after a visit to Amoeba for Vinyl. Inside and patio dining. We chose outside as it is set back from Sunset and vine. Must have the raw Oysters for a start! Not into Raw? Fried Oysters then. Nice selection of items you don't make at home (That... More

we always eat at Hungry Cat while in Hollywood due to their fresh seafood, especially when they have Uni in stock. The wait staff is always friendly and we have always had a good lunch here!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
