Jane Monheit was fabulous. They charged us for the drink minimum w/o even coming back to ask if we wanted to order another round, though. Not cool.

John Pizzarelli Trio ‎– For Centennial Reasons: 100 Year Salute To Nat King Cole was an "okay" event. Band plays excellent but I was really thinking they would play some of Nat King Cole's more famous hits. Out of the entire show, I only knew 1...continued

Keiko Matsui was amazing! It started by having us seated within feets from the stage. Since the venue was small, we had personal contact with Keiko, which included photos and a personal CD signing. My hubby had a great Father's Day evening!! And...continued

Kenny Burrell is one of a kind, and the setting and atmosphere of the Catalina B&G, and the crowd of jazz lovers - the evening was all we'd hoped it would be. Outstanding and attentive service, to boot.

Kurt Elling would be great anywhere. However, the Catalina Bar and Grill has WAAAY overpriced and not great food. Pasta was $22, and was a pretty tiny serving. nachos were $13 and stale!

Lainie was brilliant. Though ill - she was a trooper and really gave it her all. She was, despite her illness, in fine voice and so entertaining.

Can't wait for her return engagement.

Let me start by saying that Ana Gasteyer was amazing. Quirky, quick witted and clearly very talented. I was impressed with all aspects of the show. It's a good thing we got a deal on tickets through Goldstar because everything else about the night...continued

Lived up to my hopes. Performance was excellent.
Seating was not optimal, but no complaints. Drinks (2 min.) were neither over-priced not watered-down. Pleasant experience overall.

Loved the venue and of course I loved Rachelle Ferrell. BUT...The Catalina is too damm expensive. After the ticket purchase, you are required to purchase either two drinks or a dinner. Soooooo...plan on spending a total of $100 for two.

Loved the atmosphere in there. The service was great, and food was good. A little bit overprice, but worth every penny. The most enjoyable part was the performance. I would totally recommend this place to my friends.

Murray is a delight and his musical and lyrical interpretation top-rate! A well crafted show done in the best of cabaret and jazz night club tradition. The room was full with sound and sight lines among the best in L.A.'s intimate music venues....continued
