As a frequent guest at the Beverly Hilton, I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. The service is always top notch. The breakfasts are fresh with high quality ingredients. Lunch is great too. The tomato basil soup is heavenly, the beet salad is delicious as is the crab cake. I can't stop ordering the salmon- I've... More

We had breakfast here for the three days we stayed at the Beverly Hilton. The food selection was great, as were the servers themselves. Rosa was a joy, as she took great care of us and called everyone "honey." Daniel was friendly and professional, and he definitely kept his eyes open for any needs we might encounter.

It is rare that we decide to eat at any hotel that we are staying at, as there are usually so much better options available, but on our last night of a 10 day road trip, we decided to make an exception, and we were so glad that we did. The place was quiet, so in that way seemed like... More

The buffet included, yogurt, etc., locks and bagels, etc., freshly made to order omelets w/lots of "fillings," oatmeal, etc., breads, pastries, fruits, juices, of course coffee/tea. You looked out on the pool, the service was helpful, and pleasant.

We had the breakfast/brunch buffet on Monday before the BCS Championship game. The staff seemed a bit harried due to the crowd, but the buffet was very good. We had a reservation and were immediately seated. There were lots of choices, including an omelette station. Empty buffet items were quickly replaced, and the scrambled eggs were quite good, a watermark... More

We ate here four mornings during our stay and had the buffet each time. It is expensive! Continental buffet is $21.95. American buffet with hot foods is $29.95. The service would be good one day and rotten the next. Hence, the "average" rating. One morning the waiter did not come to refill juice or coffee at all. We had to... More

The food and service was good, I ate lunch poolside. Price was expensive. $18+ dollars for a burger and French fries.. that is probably a good deal for Beverly Hills.

Exceptional service. Many of the staff have worked there for many years. I had the California omelet one morning and another day I tried the granola parfait. Never have I felt do welcome. Food was good btw.
