We visited this diner during our recent visit to Moscow, and I must confess to being quite impressed with our lunch. It was a 15-minute stroll from the Hilton Leningradskaya, and very easy to find.
Despite none of my family speaking any Russian, the staff all tried very hard to help us with their knowledge of English.
When we arrived, the Sunday lunchtime rush was in full swing (it was a little after 3pm), and we were asked to have a seat at the bar until a booth became available. Although the waitress told us it could be 10-15 mins, it really was more like 5 when she came back to show us to our table.
The menu was dual language Russian / English, so it was extremely easy for us to pick what we wanted, and then ordering only required some pointing. The music soundtrack was very much rooted in 1950's and 60's American rock'n'roll, but all good nonetheless.
The menu was “typical” American diner fare, heavy on the burgers, milkshakes and cocktails, but with plenty of other salad or noodle options for vegetarians. The Russian beer on draught was also good, but I honestly can’t remember the name of it (in either language !).
The bill was very reasonable (for Moscow), and both the quality and presentation of our food was very good.
If we return to Moscow, we will likely return to the Beverly Hills Diner.

As two American traveling through Moscow in the winter, we searched for a little bite of home at the Beverly Hills Diner. The place definately has the american diner atmosphere, however the music that was playing was Disney kid music. We were hoping for Johnny Cash or even some 70's classic rock. The food was pretty darn close to what you would expect. The Oreo milkshake was delicious as well as the Philly cheesesteak and classic burger and fries. Prices were reasonable for Moscow. Service was also very good. Would recommend this place for expats or tourists aching for a good diner.

Still waiting after over an hour for the hot dog we ordered. Kids starving. Why we got was ok, but nothing spectacular

The atmosphere of this nice place starts with characteristic neon lights outside, upon entering we find ourselves in bright, old and heartfelt America which we know by films and songs. A lovely hôtesse offered us to at the bar while our table wouldn´t be free (we went to there on Sat at 9PM), we were waiting for just 10 min. Drinks and food didn´t disappoint us, the service would be rated with 4/5. A nice place!

Went there with a friend for a late dinner. We were offered to sit down at a table that wasn't ready yet: they cleaned it as we sat down. When 20 minutes passed after we ordered two drinks, two burgers and chili cheese nuggets, and nothing came, we asked our waitress where the drinks and food are. She immediately started to blame bar for being so slow, promising to bring food soon. When food arrived, we noticed that chili cheese nuggets (6 small round battered cheese things for 340 rubles ($13) were actually cold inside. We ate two trying to figure it out, and left out 4 on the plate. When we asked our waitress why they couldn't even fry them to readiness, she just took them away without offering any apologies. In 15 more minutes she delivered the same 4 cheese balls heated up in a microwave. When I noticed that it is not acceptable to serve half-frozen food and then reheat it and bring back in 15 minutes, she was very surprised and simply offered to call a manager. When a manager arrived and I explained why I was disappointed, she seemed annoyed and simply asked if we wanted cheese balls taken off the bill or get new ones prepared. At that point we wanted to just get out of the place, so we had it taken off the bill.

The menu itself features all famous burgers and foods from all 50 US states, and the decor and interior, including staff uniforms matches american diners of 1960's. Only with the horrible Soviet service.
