Beautiful restaurant with great service

The restaurant is beautifully decorated, and very spacious. You can sit outdoors, right next to the pool. The staff are amazing, and really look after you. The food is pricey, with modest portions. The food quality is very good, but not great. I recommend having hotel breakfast/brunch here, but... read more

Our first night in LA being slightly jetlagged we needed somewhere close and easy to find. This ticked both boxes by being in our hotel. Taco Tuesdays ($1 a taco) was happening so we took advantage of this. The food was great and the dessert we had (a crème brulee) was outstanding. Plus the food came out quickly and the... More

Stayed at the Beverly Hilton. Received some breakfast coupons. Great buffet. $22 for Conintental--including fruit, cereals, breads/bagels/muffins, yogurts and salmon and fixings. Full buffet is $30--adding made to order eggs/omelettes, hashbrowns, meats, and scrambled eggs. Very fresh, very tasty. Busy. Good service.

You don't always expect a hotel restaurant to be anything special. Our dinner beat all expectations and was truly wonderful. We sat outside by the pool and you could almost feel the energy from all that have gone before. The Beverly Hilton just oozes history and I felt like I should have had a martini and dinner jacket on in... More

We had Sunday Brunch at Circa 55 last month while visiting LA. I found a great deal on another site for the brunch and we decided to go. Not only do you get to pick an entree off their menu, but then there is a buffet on top of that that has omelets, fruit, eggs, etc AND a dessert buffet!... More

I had the pleasure of eating here a number of times during my stay. This resto offers eat inside and out, by the famous Beverly Hilton pool. Food choices are plentiful and range from commonly enjoyed favorites to wonderfully inspired dishes. I was never disappointed.

Usually I have limited trust in hotel's restaurants. However, Circa 55 turned out to be a place with scenic view (great poolside) and perfectly cooked food! Potato salad with grilled octopus, my first choice, was absolutely delicious. In fact, it was my best octopus I've ever eaten - warm, soft inside and crispy on the outside, with smoky flavour. Leafy... 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.
