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

Seafood is very good but a little pricey. Wasn't a surprise given the location. It was a beautiful night so we ate outside. Tables are very close together and you can hear every conversation at the tables closeby.

Great menu for dinner, attentive service and super location in the Beverly Hilton. While it may be hard to resist the outside pool area for dining in perfect weather, Circa 55 beckons one to stay inside for a superb dining experience. Sunday brunch is especially good. We have to stop for brunch as it is worth the experience. Even with... More

Cordial service and poolside table led to a wonderful outdoor, relaxed brunch. The food at the buffet was normal fare with omelet station. Good, hot coffee!

We ordered off the breakfast menu rather than taking advantage of the buffet. Unfortunately, it appears that our waiter forgot about us. Not only was he very slow in refilling our coffee, but it appears that he forgot about our order. When I reminded him twenty-five minutes later that we were still waiting for our oatmeal, it miraculously showed up... More

We ate here twice, great staff, though if it's very busy you can be overlooked if it's just the two of you, but overall enjoyed our meals

We ate here one night and had our breakfast here each morning. The food was good but the service was very average considering the reputation of the hotel.
