    Hatch was amazing for a casual date night, could also work for a special occasion. The tuna avocado crispy rice was amazing along with the tempura corn. Highly recommend trying the skewers and grilled brownie with green tea ice cream. Also a great selection of cocktails and kitchen time wasn't too long either, will def be back.

    Two of our party (including me) really enjoyed the cocktails and the food. Our guest that avoids gluten and is an ovo-lacto vegetarian had a lot of issues ordering. Our guest who was a vegetarian and gluten sensitive had a lot of problems.

    Wonderful food! The handheld ordering system either failed or our server didn’t know how to use it. Dishes never arrived and dishes arrived three times that were not ours. The manager kindly comped a wine and one dish to apologize. I will got back as food was great! Maybe they will work out the ordering bugs. Tables around us all got their food.

    Great meal, the food was unique and delicious! We loved the Christmas ambiance with the music and tree. Our waiter was really great but he did forget one of our main dishes so we ended up waiting for a while. But overall we were very happy and will definitely be back!

    The service is terrible. We didn’t get the soup until we mentioned to the server at the end of the dinner. We also didn’t get the correct sets of skewers, even after we asked twice. 3% tip is secretly added after tax. Food is okay, too sweet, bone marrow good. Alcohol good. Won’t come again with the terrible kitchen service.

    Little disappointed in the chef’s table experience. Was sold as something very different, an omokase type experience with the executive chef, cooking things based on your palate. In reality, you’re just sat at the bar in front of the kitchen and handed the menu, like any other seat in the house.

    The food was pretty bad, chicken thigh skewers were really dry, chicken karage tests like normal fried chicken you would get from fast food restaurant. It was not packed when we went but it was busy, there was only one server running around. It was pretty expensive for the food quality.

    We had a group of 8 for dinner on a Sunday. It was not too biusy but it took much too long for our order to be served. The hibachi grill only had 2 people preparing the food and we could see that they were also filling take out orders as we waited for our order. Way too slow. The food was very good; but I will not go back. There are better kushiyaki restaurants in Little Tokyo with great food and service.

    The waitstaff was super attentive and friendly. I loved the atmosphere and everything I ordered was delicious. I had the black chicken karaage, corn tempura and a few sides. The brownie was hands-down one of the best desserts I’ve had. It was drizzled with matcha sauce and topped with matcha ice cream. Loved the taste and texture.

    Hatch was awesome. Service was great. Had a few original cocktails that were a great blend of flavors. Had a party of 6 and everyone was able to find some unique items, including our Japanese pescatarian. The beef skewers and pork belly were awesome and we had to order several extra orders. It was great to be able to share things across the table. Great for a big group. Can’t wait to come back.

    Waitress / welcoming committee was very flustered that a lot of people showed up at once and ignored us. Had to order drinks from the bar—the bartender knows his stuff! Made great cocktails. Their beer was out over 30 hours which was a bummer. Everything else was great.

    They have one of the most unique menus I’ve seen and everything is delicious. The small bites make it easy to try a variety of yakitori and appetizers without committing to one big entree, our group of 6 must have tried almost everything on the menu. Great selection of Japanese beer and cocktails too. It was my fiancée and friend’s birthday and they really made them feel special. We ended with a fantastic cheesecake with a Japanese spin. Service was consistent and friendly. They validate parking (there is a parking structure for the restaurants and shops in the plaza in the back). The ambiance is minimalist, modern, and not too fancy or casual. I will come back again!

    The meal was one of the best we’ve had all year — truly inventive dishes with unexpectedly delicious results. This is a hidden gem in an odd location — which makes it a much more interesting discovery. The service was also spot on and one of the owners treated us to a stunning dessert we never would have ordered — but will, definitely, the next time we come with friends. The secret may be out, however: at the table next to us was the star of a 20-year old hit drama on TV. Now is the time to go!

    Family dinner at Hatch was a great experience again. First time here was date night a few months ago with my husband after a movie at Alamo Drafthouse nearby. Had such a nice dining experience that we brought our daughter this time. She loved it. Great service! Matt was friendly and more than accommodating, making a prospective cocktail for the upcoming Fall season for my husband. We tried the bone marrow this time and it was so good, we got another order.
