GOOD FOOD & SERVICE

We were staying at the hotel so we had lunch and dinner here. Lunch was burgers and fries and medium rare was cooked just right and fries were tasty. Dinner was comfortable (could have sat outside by pool but was a bit cool out even with heaters). Reasonably priced wines available. I had the... read more

Went to brunch with a good friend and enjoyed the experience greatly. The server was fantastic, she was so kind and sweet. As a native Hollywood girl I had never been in the Beverly Hilton hotel for some reason but was so pleasantly surprised. It is like walking through old Hollywood, with all of the wonderful photos on the walls... More

Better than Trader Vics but confusing menu as well. Uninspired and overpriced. Food feels very old fashioned as well. The Beverly Hilton should rethink their only 2 restaurants on the premises.

We were guests in the Beverly Hilton hotel and went to Circa 55 every morning for their breakfast buffet as it was included in our room rate. I never hold much hope for included breakfast to be any good but this outdid any preconceptions we had. This breakfast was the best breakfast buffet I have ever experienced. The wide selection...

Celebrated a good friends birthday here yesterday by having brunch. We couldn't stop raving about the quality of the food, It was delicious. The staff were amazing as well, we had Ashley as our waitress, we were a rather large party, and she didn't skip a beat! Ashley, we appreciate you making our experience one for the record books.

Well, I can't say I wasn't warned. I had read a lot of reviews on another site that said the service was slow and it sure was. I didn't really care about that issue to be honest because we were meeting our college daughter who we haven't seen for several months and her roommate for a birthday brunch so I... More

Had lunch when we first arrived, great atmosphere right beside the pool but with heated lamp for cooler days. The food was fantastic! I would recommend the fish tacos!

We've eaten at Circa 55 a couple of times over the last few weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed both meals and the full dining experience. The staff are very professional, the food was of an excellent quality and the service was warm and attentive. Can highly recommend the BBQ ribs, the salads, the fish & the sweet treats. The environment... More

We weren't blown away by our experience at Circa 55 on Christmas Eve. The ambience of the restaurant is great, since it is poolside at the Beverly Hilton with the old surf movie scenes playing. The service was...okay... Our waiter had a language barrier to the point where he couldn't effectively give my husband a menu recommendation and did not... More

We enjoyed the lunch at Circ 55. The menu was somewhat limited with options, but the salad and sandwich items we tried were nice. We were somewhat not impressed with the selections being very basic like my tuna melt. We were expecting a little more flare. The restaurant is beside the pool, so this and the landscape offer a nice... 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.
