The menu doesn't list out what's included in the dishes. My boyfriend is allergic to tomatoes and doesn't like avocados, both of which were unexpected ingredients in the asian chicken salad he ordered and picked through.

The staff were a little rushed and a bit disorganized. They forgot to check me in for Open Table resulting in that email inquiry of a no show. Food is great but probably better to sit outside if you want the volume to be less than loud.

Great happy hour menu. Some dishes like the karaage were amazing. Some waiter recommendations like brussel sprouts was so-so. A different kind of restaurant from the usual American style. Very pleasant experience. Don't know if I would come if not for Happy Hour.

My friend is not very adventurous food-wise, so HATCH was way outside his comfort zone. The waiter’s recommendations were spot on. Everything, food and drinks were fantastic. We can’t wait to go back.

It was pretty loud. Interior design was interesting. Food was on the sweeter side which I didn’t exactly enjoy. The herb lamb was great though.

The food was fine, but nothing to write home about. We went with a group and shared a fair number of dishes and very little stood out. The chicken meatball skewers were likely the best skewer available. Didn't leave very full despite a decent check.

Took a group in for lunch which was the way to do it. We were able to order quite a bit and share. The highlights were the skirt steak, snapper, hamachi, black chicken, spare ribs, and pork belly.

This place is delicious! We way over-ordered but it was fun to try a lot of things. The pork ribs are SENSATIONAL. The pork belly skewer is a must try. The corn tempura and agedashi tofu were outstanding.

Don't be turned off by the fact that it's in a weird mall.

We'll be back!

HATCH was absolutely incredible. The food was mouth watering. Fair prices and good portion sizes. This place is a hidden gem. DO NOT MISS. 12/10 will return.

The staff was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Our glasses were always full before we could ask and the next course was ready at the perfect moment.

Ask for Andre, he will take care of you and make the experience memorable.

We tried their DineLA menu, it was amazing! It was a great introduction to their standard menu, and it was quite a lot of food. You can taste that they put a lot of heart into their food. Customer service was great as well! Highly recommended!!

Our server was trying to be on top of things but he kept interrupting our conversations the entire night. After a while, our eaten dishes were stacking up and he didn’t bother to pick them up. We could use some clean plates half way through dinner and once again, our server did not seem to notice.
All in all, service was lacking and the food was mediocre!

We are from Montana and have enjoyed Yakitori all over the world. Hatch is the tops in food quality and innovative menus. The flavor is perfect with the correct amount of spice. The only thing the exceeds the food is the wait staff, helpful and you never have have an empty glass or plate. We first ate at Hatch right after he opened and now it is packed. If you do not eat at Hatch then you are missing a life time experience. Our only disappointment was it was the owners night off

As lovely as the ambience and the service was. The food was not v good the skewers were over cooked and the brownie was awful. I love yakiniku and was so excited about a new spot to open but the food was not good as all. The raw food was good.

It’s pretty loud in the restaurant mostly bc of the design of the room. The food was good but slightly overpriced. If you sit at the counter you don’t really get to see the grill action as it’s more on the side in the kitchen.

Good for quick bite before show or wven at Staples while exploring the new plaza. The restaurant is too dark and you cannot see what you are eating. They try to be creative with their menu, but I have had better yakitori elsewhere with wider variety.

Food was good! The chicken meatball stick was one of my favs. I'll definitely be back. The staff were all quite nice. Only thing is it's a bit dark in the back half of the restaurant.

Sleek design and good lightning. Friendly service, but music was way too loud, thus ruined the dining experience. Nothing is worse than having to repeat yourself over and over along with your date having to do the same.

This is a restaurant concept--not a club.

Valentines dinner. I was disappointed because I called the day before and they said we could order off of the regular menu instead of the set menu, but when I got there they said we had to have the set menu which was $120 for two people. It was a fantastic meal though, I was happy. They gave roses out to all of the women during the meal. It was very cute and the atmosphere was perfectly romantic.
