The Catalina Jazz club is a hidden Hollywood gem. It's a perfect intimate setting to see a jazz quartet or a singer/songwriter. Definitely a fun change of pace. Check out the calendar and catch a show!

The catalina bar and grill is a horrible place. The service is rude and the food is inedible. I had chicken marsala which had been cooked either someplace else or hours before and then reheated because it was dry and hard. The chicken was It...continued

The Catalina is the best venue in LA to hear jazz. The sound is excellent, the staff is friendly and the service is solid. We saw Marcus Miller last night and he blew the roof off the place. Marcus is the bass master of our generation and any...continued

The check-in took half an hour, from 7pm to 7:30pm. It was way too long for people show showed up on time.

Despite there were tables available in the front, we were taken to a table to the far side (close to the bar) where we could not see Lynda...continued

The club is nice, seating was good. The drinks seemed a bit pricey, $15 for a martini. Lauren Desberg was really good, but the entire performance consisted of one set of maybe 10-12 songs. Maybe an hour. I guess we expected more than one set. ...continued

The Earl Klugh Quartet was great. Loved David Lee - on keyboards. However, the room was a bit chilly and the drink prices were ridiculously expensive.

The entire performance was outstanding! Terence Blanchard's quintet quenched our senses with top-notch pure jazz. Although we had to wait nearly an hour before the show, we could hear a brief sample and knew right away it was worth waiting for. ...continued

The event was great. Sadao Watanabe and his band were amazing. I just wished they had played a few more of his songs from the '80s. Great venue.

The front desk was rude when guest entered the open door during the end of first session. The idea that the there was open access into the venue would indicate that it was reasonable to inquire about accommodations. Furthermore, no recognition...continued

The Ladies of jazz in pink were great! Rick Parma is a talented musician but he hogged the spotlight.. He forgot the name of the guest singer. Lol! They make their money off the drinks and food. It was a funny experience overall.

The Mike Stern Quartet once again kicked collective butt with blazing solos and massive grooves. Dennis Chambers is a master of the drums. Stern is a great jazz composer and guitarist. Randy Brecker is a jazz legend.

The most amazing jazz performance I have seen in years!Outstanding musicians from technical and creative points, plus energy brought by Hiromi was extraordinary. Stan and Lee vibbed with her energy and the result was a magical performance.

The music was amazing and the ambiance was fantastic. It was a truly classy and well organized dinner show that I highly recommend. I suggest eating elsewhere beforehand though because food was extremely overpriced.
5 stars to the jazz quartet.

The music was great, the food was pretty bad. Most of the food is around $30/plate and for that price the food should be much better. Drinks were $12. Basically with 2 drinks minimum or 1 dinner entry, this will not be a cheap event. The place is...continued
