    This was a great spot to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings of Via Rodeo. The food was passable enough, but it didn't taste as good as it read on the menu. However, the ambiance wins out here.

    We last visited Rodeo Drive on our Honeymoon in 1988. Finding such a fabulous restaurant on our return some 26 years later was wonderful. The meal, the wine, the service, the live music, and the atmosphere were all awesome. Many thanks to you all for helping make our return to Beverly Hills so wonderful. We will be back!!

  • Dissappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/15/2014
    6 of us ate at here. It was pretty disappointing. We had gone to Rodeo drive for the car show, and I made a reservation. We sat inside and it was soo busy. Although our waiter was very nice, the service was terrible. Only 3 of us got our drinks. The other 3 had to wait forever. After asking several times, each drink came out separately and far apart. The food came over an hour later. Although the food was mostly good, the side salads most of us had were horrible. Doused in garlic and inedible. Seemed like there were only 2 cooks and no space in this restaurant. The waiters were constantly moving tables around, which was annoying and distracting. I will never go back to this restaurant and neither will the other 5 people I was with.

    Took my wife and kids there for Mother's Day and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very attentive and accommodating to allow us to fit in the outdoor eating area. It's not a big area, however; there were many families celebrating on the patio. The wait staff was excellent and the food portions were massive. We had French toast and fosters pancakes. Yummy! Would definitely recommend this place.

    Despite having a prime, tourist spot this restaurant had good food and service. A bit too much patio traffic going back and forth (both waitstaff and guests) that it wasn't completely to our taste, but I do get the appeal for those wishing hustle and bustle, without an attitude.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    When I arrived, the first thing I thought was, "man this must be the only night they do business". The outdoor and indoor areas were PACKED with 2-tops, barely enough room between the tables. Despite having reservations, we had to wait 15 minutes. Mind you there is no waiting room so your sitting around the people eating outside, a little awkward.The first table they sat us at was at the entrance to the kitchen, entrance to the bar, and the computer where servers entered their orders. We asked to move because we could not even hear one another. Fortunately the host moved us. Throughout the night I continually had to duck and dive between waiters and other guest. Great drinks and food, but in the end I felt taken advantage of by Rodeo 208.

    Great place! We haven't gone out to a nice dinner with my wife in a while and I loved every second of it. Backdrop was the Tiffany and Porsche stores, and the food was excellent. Seating was very very tight, but I sort of expected that on Valentine's day. Musician was also great but took a very long break during our dinner so we missed out on him for the most part. Cost was pretty reasonable considering the occasion and very well-known location...would recommend this for both a special occasion and also for someone visiting Los Angeles who wants to experience a famous part of our city. Plus points for the special menu with 'love' written on it in 20 different languages, including the language my wife and I speak (Hungarian).

    We were looking for something different but fairly special for our 46th anniversary. We seldom go to Beverly Hills so gave 208Rodeo a try. It was perfect! We sat outside, which on a Monday night was pretty quiet, which we prefer. The meals were delicious...some of the best halibut I've had in ages. Service was attentive and the bottom line was quite fair. Looking across at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, nicely lit and looking venerable, made us feel like we were in Europe! People watching was good too. We'll return. I hear it's good for brunch.
