Consistently good

The garlic noodles.....ENOUGH SAID! They are everything that you'd expect and more. The service was impeccable; staff was attentive to your every need.

This place was beautiful inside.My boyfriend and I went with my family for my cousin's birthday and had great service. I had the beef shanks and they were to die for! So delicious!! My boyfriend had the dragon fried rice which he absolutely loved. Drinks were over priced though! All in all we will definitely be going back!

The atmosphere and food are amazing! Ask for the special menu. The assorted appetizer is a great way to get started. The lobster salad is wonderful. The lava chocolate cake is fabulous. Everything is terrific.

Crustacean is a below-value, overpriced restaurant. The serving size of the cocktails was very small and the drinks were priced higher than other competing restaurants in Beverly Hills. ($16 for a martini!). Wines by the glass were also expensive. The portion size of the mussels was small, only five of them, especially when compared to the price of them. The... More

A very classical Oriental restaurant on two levels. A fish filled stream, under glass, running through the restaurant. Very attractive.Unusual dishes. Specialize in Dunginess crab dishes. Pricey food and drinks. Very good service..

Garlic Noodle and Crabs are what I had but others in my party had a variety of items that were as equally delicious. Definitely a must visit dinner location. Make reservations to ensure seating.

I've wanted to eat at Crustacean for a long time, heard it had wonderful food. For our 30th wedding anniversary, we are going to shop for watches and jewelry in Beverly Hills and thought we'd end our morning with lunch at Crustacean. My husband called for a lunch reservation and the hostess informed him there was a dress code, no... More

Loved it. Fabulous garlic noodles. From the crab to the Buddha's delight, from the drinks to the dessert, the food was wonderful. We enjoyed walking over the aquarium full of fat koi. The restaurant is expensive and crowded, but go for it anyway.

Thank HouMSW

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.
