It's all about the courtyard. Food is passable, but the beer list is solid.
Beautiful courtyard complete with a water fountain and drink specials make this an easy venue to start off a night in Hollywood.
Great pub – I like coming here for happy hour. drinks are pretty cheap in general and at happy hour. ther'es also little nibbles of cheese and some cooked stuff. my fave (not on the hh menu) are the crab fingers. so yummy. wine list isn't great but it is a pub after all. patio is fun but sometimes you have to order food to sit there. servers are nice but it can take some time to get your drinks.
Horrible... SERVICE could not get any worse... – We had the worst service EVER. We love taking my English mother to dinner here. She always wants to go to C&F when she comes to LA. NEVER AGAIN!!!
Kimberly, the server, was the rudest, most defensive waitress I have encountered. The restaurant was not busy, which in the past, it was always busy when we would come to dinner. That should have been a red flag. But no... Kimberly acted as though she was too busy to take our drink orders. She kept rushing ...OK whatever... When the sausage rolls came, one of them had a hair on it. We let it go...wish we hadn't now! When the bill came she had overcharged us...when she finally came back to our table I pointed it out, she became defensive, took the bill inside came back and put it on the table... She actually argued with us over it. She OVERCHARGED us and she argues with us. After taking off the 15.00 overcharge, we pay the bill. From the moment we were served by her, she was rude. WARNING...if you want to eat there...it's overpriced and rude service. The food is like an Arthur Treachers Fish and chips. Food has seriously gone down and the prices up and the service SUCKS. I contacted the C&F before posting this review. Obviously they don't give a crap about their customer's experience. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. But there are too many other wonderful places to eat in LA. Never again at the C&F. BEWARE of the wannabe Kimberly.
Excellent fist date spot – I recently revisited Cat-N-Fiddle on a first date. The outdoor patio was very accommodating, and took a lot of the work out of the first date jitters. The atmosphere is wonderful (Live music available on select nights), and the drinks were reasonable. The food items we chose were not the best (all fried), but the atmosphere made up for it.
Courtyard for Smoking and Drinking – If you are a smoker, this is a fun place to hang out after work or on weekends to escape. I love the courtyard. The service, though, is slow so just be prepared to wait for drinks forever. And the food is mediocre at best and is often served cold.
Great atmosphere, Bad Food – I've been here a few times with friends, and only for drinks (they have Cider on tap!!!), but after trying the food I gotta say...don't do it! The food wasn't good. At all. My burger was not cooked correctly and my friends fish tasted like it was old. And to top it off we waited for almost 15 minutes before the server came back so we could tell her. Come only for drinks and hang out. Don't bother with the food!
Cigarette Smoke, Bad food (think air plane), AWFUL SERVICE – Upon arrival (they do not take reservations), I walked through the courtyard as it filled up with the alternative crowd and b-list folks, all smoking. It looked like a marine layer. Our waitress, was obviously overwhelmed with her burden. After throwing down our menu, she returned some 12 minutes later for the wine order - then it was another 8 before we could get her attention to order the food.
Everyone is nice, but nice can't make up for the awful food. Its British pub, but worse. My chicken picatta was some sort of odd chicken breast shape; spongy, and the sauces was basically melted butter. The giant head of broccoli that came with it - well it was bigger than the chicken breast. The desert was decent, but who can mess up strawberries and whip cream.
I will not be going back, no part of this place is worth it.
Absolutely horrible! Worst experience in years.. – Its Friday night the 25th of July, and my girl and I have a movie to see at the Arclight on Sunset and Vine. So, while we wait for the show, we decide to have a few drinks at this lofty dive of a bar "The Cat and Fiddle" on Sunset Blvd.
I'ld been there before and it was a pretty nice place a few years ago, but it must be under new management, because the way we were treated was infuriating and disrespectful.
After being interrogated and tattooed from the not-so-scottish male door staff wearing kilts. We proceeded to the bar where the wannabe actress bartender was slow, pretentious, and stared us down for no reason whatsoever.
We were given the wrong drinks, and then when we asked for the RIGHT drinks, they tried to rip us off for the difference between the two drinks we purchased. I asked for my money back, and the bartenders managed to pocket a dollar from my $20, before we started to get angry and decided to leave.
I asked to see the manager, which emerged and tried to explain away the situation, of course siding with her bartending staff. She made no attempt to reconcile, and even implied that we were to blame in some way.
Profanities were exchanged, fists were about to fly, and a general panic for the doors was eminent. All within a span of 20 minutes. Absolutely horrible experience! I wouldn't recommend this shoddy oasis if it were in the darkest, hottest pit of hell.
Friday nights are very crowded – A vibrant crowd maintains a laid-back vibe while attentive and friendly waiter rush around on the joint's extensive patio. It is all about socializing and enjoying a good drink on a warm summer night.
Very rude working staff – I just picked this place to celebrate my b-day because I love the patio and the atmosphere. They have drinks and food and seemed to be a perfect place for an outdoor party. I took over 30 people to their business and I was so disappointed! I asked a young couple if they wouldnt mind changing tables so I could seat close to my friends and they were really friendly but the hostess called the manager on us and threatened me. The manager knows how to do business though and ended up apologizing to us. The hostess was very rude. I don;t understand, we spent hundred of dollars there. Never again!!
a right fiddle – i live in l.a and used to go on average once a month .
last time apart from yesterday was late march...........................so what has happened since then ???
it's changed for the worst,
service by the waitress was slow and she seemed confused by the menu as we were .
half of what we ordered was unavailable .............
also the prices have gone up, up, up, and
now the options for a complimentary
soup or salad with the main meal are gone,
if you want a small salad or soup now, you have to pay extra and be lucky if they have any in the kitchen, even though it's on the menu .
maybe it's under new management or
they are cost cutting for some other reason but the prices are too high for pub grub .
our waitress kept repeating the wrong words when we were ordering, like she was deaf........
also she didnt bring the correct bill at the end of it all........
