“Dinner June 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

place is in hilton and kind of combined with Trader Vics (they are the lounge, Circa is the restaurant). Drinks were terrific, had the mai tai and zombie. Wine was reasonably priced to crazy expensive. ordered the cosmo tidbits to start, the coconut shrimp were excellent, very crunchy with lots of coconut. the spare ribs were terrific, the rest I didnt get to try as the kids scarfed it all down. The table consensus was that it was an excellent app and we should have gotten two. Kid meals were standard fare. Thai red curry with chicken was supurb, lots of good curry flavor and good size to share with 2 adults. got the wok fried rice noodles, nicely done noodle dish with good flavor. Kids ordered a desert, but forget which one, it again got rave reviews. Place is expensive, but we expected that. Dinner for 4 with drinks was about $200 (with 2 kids meals). wait service was spotty and we had to remind the waiter several times to bring things, but outdoor setting near pool was nice and they had propane heaters to warm us up on the cool night. All in all a good meal.

“Food Needs to be Upgraded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

While the service at this Beverly Hilton restaurant is excellent, the food is just average. Come on! This is Beverly Hills for goodness sake. How about brining in a new chef?

“Expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

I know being in Beverly Hills means big bucks but $7.00 for 1/2 of a grapefruit is a little much
