The Polo Lounge has been the favorite breakfast spot and watering hole for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. Guests enjoy indoor and outdoor seating for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and late-night suppers. Lunch and dinner are served with piano accompaniment alternating with light jazz on the patio during the long summer nights. Jazz music is also featured during Sunday Brunch. In the evening guests can come to relax and enjoy one of our many specialty cocktails or one of our old favorites.

Fabulous service, ambience and food. An oasis of beauty, charm and style. Wonderful for brunch or lunch in summer. There is an idyllic patio area for al fresco dining.

Was there two different nights and on both occasions it was very crowded and very loud. That can be either a good or bad thing.

We go frequently for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Inside or in the beautiful garden, service is excellent, food is uncomplicated, always tasty and consistent, and the scene is special. Wine list is expensive but great and the musicians at night add to the scene.

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
