I expected a reservation would get us a booth or table, but was disappointed to be shoved to a high-top at the bar. What is the point of making a reservation if we’re to be treated as a walk in?

We got in there on last minute reservation, which was very helpful. We got seated outside in a courtyard under two beautiful large palm trees but they still managed to maintain a "pub" ambiente. Very nice overall. The menu was authentically British but the food made some accommodations to the American palate. Service was efficient and friendly.

Hi Jamesg, Thank you for your review! So sorry to hear about your experience on Thanksgiving. I would gladly offer you a gift certificate to come back and try us again. Please email us (contact page on website), I can also explain the issue we had on Thanksgiving which affected a few of the last minute later reservations the system accepted. I understand your frustration and it was a systematic error on our end. I hope we also took care of you while you were here. Cheers, Ashlee

Our Thanksgiving meal starts The Cat and Fiddle was absolutely delicious. Basically a gourmet quality homemade Thanksgiving. Simple yet delightful. The maple cheesecake was about one of the best desserts I’ve ever had, bursting in flavor and yet delicate. Sweet potato meringue was divine. The vegetable itself was as delicious and creamy as the meringue topping. Turkey has always been my least favorite part of the traditional Thanksgiving meal. It can be dry or lacking in flavor. This was tender, moist and bursting in flavor. The other side dishes were wonderful. The Cat and Fiddle has always had the highest quality food and obvious care in preparation. This surpassed all they’ve served before—and on an extremely busy night at that. Bravo! I salute the chef and we wished we could have hugged all by the time we left, happy and discussing the wondrous meal for days later. Thank you to all at the Cat and Fiddle!

Hadn't been to the Cat since it relocated from it killer Spanish-style Sunset building. The Highland Ave location is easy to get to but also easy to miss. But trust me, you don't want to miss it. Staff is friendly & professional, pours are generous and the crowd is interesting. Also - the food is first rate.
So good to be home again.

Surprisingly good food (especially for LA vegan types!) Nice ambiance - has always been pretty quiet when I was there — but that helps give it an intimate cozy vibe. SUPER friendly staff — but a slow or quiet night means slow service. Will definitely go regularly.

We've been to the Cat and Fiddle several times and every time has been a fine experience. The food is good the choice of beer is very good and the service is outstanding. Food prices are moderate and the ambience is enjoyable -- if you like pubs.

When someone brings up going out to eat, we always think of The Cat and Fiddle.

Hi Dara, Thank you for giving us a try and I'm so sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience with us! How can we improve? It is a different location from Sunset, smaller and quaint and flows very nicely from inside and out. The menu is carefully crafted and all the food is homemade from breads to dressings, so we have a strong handle on quality control . We have many of previous staff from Sunset, wonderful staff that has stayed with us in thick and thin. Cheers, Ashlee

Sheer delight. This new incarnation of the historic Cat & The Fiddle is a lovely experience on every level. The charming, cozy pub atmosphere makes for a comfortable yet festive vibe, and the service is very friendly and attentive. And the food! So flavorful and hearty! The beer-battered fish was tender and moist, the pot pies were treasures of homemade goodness, and the soup was seasoned to perfection. Can't wait to return to try more dishes.

I don't understand how a British pub doesn't stock salad cream. HP sauce check. No salad cream and some of the staff were so confused when being asked for it a pile of sour cream came out. Literally why. I get probably only a few Brits will ask for it but even if you don't make her own that stuff is bomb proof on a shelf and you could cheaply order a case for way less than the measly $6 it cost full retail at world market. Come ON literally how else do you eat scotch eggs. And if you are gonna spend for the rabbit food under a scotch egg just put that sauce at the side. Other British pubs in LA do.... OH and that was the smallest sausage roll I've ever seen and I'm not sure it is even a full sized British sausage. I did not find it to be value for money, two at that size would be.
That being said I had a cracking time and the scotch eggs tasty and the Shepherd's Pie flatbread was gorgeous.
Also I went bc it's a British pub so maybe give people equal opportunity to tout that.

These guys really know what they are doing, and really know how to host!

There’s no where else like it in LA.

Family run business of exceptional quality. We went for Father’s Day, the owner welcoming everybody, making people- including our two young children- feel really comfortable. Our server was equally wonderful and talented with children. Food to please everyone, and I mean everyone. From Vegans to carnivores to toddlers. Our girls loved coming here and said we should go there lots of times, I agree.
We hadn’t been since our wedding day at the old location, and we will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!

There should be one of those places that you love to go to on a regular basis. Even though the food is good and well prepared, it does not seem to overcome its problems. The prices are a little too high, the management is not customer focused, and overall a lackluster experience each time I go.

Hi MommothLover, Thank you for your review! Did you have a particular experience while you were there? There is almost always a member of the family there as management because we do care about our guests and try to be as accommodating as possible. Hence responding to this review!
