The Blvd is a landmark restaurant and the famous Beverly Wilshire, but that was before Four Season's made it a 'manufactured' 5 Star as opposed to how it was or as I remember it, when it was The Regent Beverly Wilshire' or as you might remember it from the movie Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Today it is much different and the glory days of The Blvd are far behind. The food is 'average' nothing special, the prices are ridiculously over priced and the service is messy. The wait time to get a soup is absurd and cocktails are although good, but extremely pricey. The atmosphere? Well its a hotel, gone are the celebrities and instead it seems more like a hotel in Dubai or Saudi Arabia, as it is mostly people from the Gulf in every table, sort of like an Al Queda convention all day long. For those of you who had family or friends affected by the twin towers attack in 9/11 this is not the destination for that. But regardless of that, the place has fallen dramatically in service and style of what it was. At night they sometimes have the lousiest and noisiest band playing the most annoying tunes, so unless your from the Gulf you will probably find it as annoying as any other American under the age of 80. The most frustrating part about this restaurant is the wait time to get your food, the service and the overpricing, all together The Blvd is a let down.

You simply cannot beat Blvd for people-watching, food or service. It's open all the time, and after a while you find yourself just hanging out there several times during the course of a day - or night.

It overlooks Rodeo where you can watch tourists take photos of themselves themselves, and even take in a celeb or two in for a quick lunch or dinner.

And don't worry about being taken care of because that's what they also know a lot about. It's the reason Blvd is a landmark for everyone in Beverly Hills -- tourists and locals alike.

Had a business dinner at BLVD and it was spectacular. Drinks and appetizers were great and the view is spectacular overlooking Rodeo Drive. The setting is enclosed by the historic Beverly Wilshire Hotel and you really get a feel of old time Hollywood.

Walking up Wilshire Boulevard looking for a place for lunch we noticed the umbrellas outside the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. We decided to have lunch at their signature restaurant. The menu is pricy, but it's Beverly Hills! Great location to people watch while enjoying lunch. We ordered the Cobb Salad and Ahi Tuna Sandwich. Before our lunch arrived we were offered a selection of outstanding breads. Both lunches were good. The day that we were there (July 5th) it was very busy with such a unique variety of people. The bar also was quite busy. Wait staff was great, no rush. Seating was very comfortable. Located at the intersection of Wilshire and Rodeo Drive.
