No one can duplicate there Garlic Noodles and Drunken Crab. It is a place you have to try one time just for this very special dish.

The crab is delicious and huge and a mess to eat. The calamari is also so delicious. The bar is neat with some amazing cocktails. There is also music in the lounge. The service was slow.

This restaurant is a bit pricey however it's very delicious. If you work hard then treating yourself every now and then is well deserved. Business casual attire, nice area, nice ambiance, and if you don't make a reservation - you may be waiting awhile depending on the time of day you visit. Parking isn't to bad and they also offer...

Love this place! Crustacean has been around for quite a while now and it is always pleasing plus you never know who you may run into. A real treat!

Had not been here in over a decade - obviously was not overwhelmed by the last experience. This visit was similar. Nice atmosphere, good wine list, good service. Food is very pleasant, but seldom rises above that level. I am a great fan of Vietnamese food, and have traveled (and eaten) extensively in Vietnam. This is sort of fancied-up (and... More

They have the best garlic noodle in the world and the crabs are also so delicious. I never try anything like this before. The pasta taste so good and some of the appetizer like spring rolls and the satay are nice as well. Their wine selection is good.

We stopped here after doing some shopping because my beau insisted that I try the famous garlic noodle. They certainly didn't disappoint! I had 2 signature hand crafted cocktails, chicken satay, and garlic noodles with jump prawns and fresh crab. The presentation was excellent and the taste of everything was even better. This is a nice date spot, and I... More

Never again. Three people, one appetizer, 3 entrees, noodles, greasy rice with scallops and 6 cocktails= $500. Enough said. Simply put, the food is ridiculously expensive. It's good but nowhere near worth the price. The service is the same--good but for $500, I'm expecting to be spoon fed. More hype than substance. Do yourself a favor and pass on this.... More

This restaurant came highly recommended, and we were all excited to experience their supposedly excellent food. The restaurant itself is lovely, with a stream filled with koi under a glass floor. We were unfortunately underwhelmed by our food choices. The tapas sampler was average and my lobster lollipop was cold and tasty greasy. The garlic noodles had been touted as... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

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.
