Magnificent Meal

Decided to eat here on our first evening at the Beverly Hilton and am glad we tried it. We chose one of the outdoor tables and the attentive staff soon had us seated with menus and the decent wine list. A warm brioche bun and butter is offered as your order is taken which was delicious and a great... read more

We love Circa for Breakfast because of the service. Request Alfredo as one day he will be a movie star with his engaging personality. Off of the menu I would highly recommend the Belgian Waffles with fruit they come out fresh and hot. You can dine both inside or outside by the pool. The breakfast buffet has something for everyone... More

This image of Hollywood's heyday, here at 'Circa55', In side the Beverly Hilton. Management should be ashamed of themselves for subjecting guests to, and destroying images, that for years, have fueled the desire to one day eat in such an iconic place with a storied past. The Maitre d', seemed disgruntled that my party arrived and interrupted their conversations. The... More

The food at the restaurant is like all hotel restaurants, with one exception, the French Dip. It was by far the best French Dip I have had to date. The service for menu ordering for breakfast is not very good. Things take longer to order and the order is not always correct. The want to drive the patrons to the... More

I would give this place 0 stars if I could! I was choking on my food because I didn't have anything to drink. Asked 4 people for coffee and water - all lazy and unresponsive. My food was cold by the time I finally got a glass of water 20 minutes later. It wasn't even busy, just incompetence.

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...

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.
