Love this gastropub! PROS: -Right off Hermosa Beach so a nice spot to grab a beer and good eats after a day at the beach -Great service! -NEWLY ADDED FOIE GRAS MENU! About 4-6 new foie gras items since it has been relegalized in California. However, these items are on the pricier side. -Wide variety of beers and tacos (plus burgers and appetizers) .. What's not to love? -Favorites: Mushroom truffle fries, foie gras burger CONS: -Parking is kind of a pain since it is by the beach, but there is metered street parking if you can find a spot!

I have been here once and wasn't impressed with the food. But when I found out they are serving foie gras I was convinced: I will never visit this terrible restaurant again.

This part of Hermosa is where it's at, and Hots Kitchen is your jackpot if you would like to see hope breed misery. Give Hots a visit if you like the thrill of anticipating your food after ordering approximately 45-60 minutes after putting in your order, enjoy cold stares and sighs of irritation from the ill customer service-trained staff as they share information about the menu items, or if you like to pay $$$ for food the size of baby fists.

I love this place. Who cares how long your food takes to come out. You want quality come down to hots kitchen. Everyone of their tavos is super special and super good. Im just sad that the one in northridge closed.

This place is amazing. I love everything about it. The decor is top notch. Especially during the summer time when they open the whole place up. The food is phenomenal. I love their tacos. There are so many to choose from. I try to order different ones each time I come and I still haven't tried them all. I always order chips and salsa because service tends to be on the slow side and I need something small to hold me over. They change their beer list all the time with local small time brewers. Always a plus. I would come more often if parking was better, but I still mosey on down when I feel like indulging myself.

Really and Truly---**WORST** Restaurant experience--*Ever*… ....And that is saying a lot. I used to work in restaurants so I know of what I speak. You know now as a patron when they cut corners, when their staff is untrained and if they're following health regulations. On more than one occasion friends & family of ours have tried this place. Each and every time an EPIC disappointment. Epic. From the servers being rude and us witnessing them not washing their hands (yuck!)—to the food being thoroughly tasteless and disgusting—there are no words to describe how inexcusable this miserable, filthy place is. On top of everything else some of their servers are on an STD site (double yuck!)—IN any case—this place disappoints on *every level*; from bad food to terrible service to foul health violations. Don’t even consider ruining your night—you deserve better. We all do.

I wish I had come here for more than just a afternoon cocktail. The food smells amazing and everyone is raving about their burgers. There is plenty of seating with long table tops so you can bring all your friends and still have room to make some new ones! They have a awesome giant chalkboard will all kind of beers and specialty drinks to choose from and the upbeat music, open window seating and lively patrons make this a great place to hang out. The only downfall is the acoustics are not so great so the echoing of chatter may make it hard to hear during a busy happy hour or weekend night.
