- a little pricey but worth the moneydiapointed123Dined on 9/12/2014the food was good but you pay for the location not the food. I was not happy that a 15.5% tip was included. What happens if the service is bad?Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great discovery!AmberzdelightsDined on 8/24/2014The food was wonderful! The tables were close together, but the atmosphere was wonderful and prices were fair. The service was great, and I felt that I was back in a street cafe in Rome. I will be back many times.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The ambiance is worth itWineandvistasVIPDined on 8/22/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- TerribleFoodieDined on 8/2/2014Food pricey and not good at all! Tables tiny ! Trying to squeeze as many people in!
- Not worth the moneyLPboyVIPDined on 7/27/2014The service was terrible. Not only was the waitress not attentive, but it took way too long for our food to come out and it looked like our dishes had been sitting for a while. My $42 filet was like shoe leather. For the money, you expect more.

- Delighful Dinnerdinner4twoDined on 7/12/2014We last visited Rodeo Drive on our Honeymoon in 1988. Finding such a fabulous restaurant on our return some 26 years later was wonderful.

We will be back!!Special Features:

- DissappointingOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 6/15/20146 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.Special Features:
- No breadgraceDined on 5/23/2014Actually...we are from Taiwan. That was my first time visit LA, thus one of my friends recommended my sister and I dining here. He came with us as well. However the writress did a bad job that day only in our table problely. I am a writress in Taiwan I won't do this to my customers..everyone gat a blasket of bread beside our table!!! Too obervious.....Special Features:
- Wonderful saladsjwr4foodVIPDined on 5/14/2014We had the quinoa and goat-cheese salad, and added chicken and avocado... very nice and refreshing. Also had the seafood salad, which was also very good. On a prior visit, the special was fresh halibut, which was excellent. The location couldn't be better!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and staffJacksDined on 5/11/2014Took 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Despite having a prime, touristArthurJacobVIPDined on 2/22/2014Despite 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great spotJbmar09Dined on 2/18/2014Fantastic outdoor patio overlooking Rodeo Dr.......great for for people watching or fancy sports car watching........the food was excellent.......my wife and I both had the grilled filet mignon which were cooked to perfection along with some delicious olive oil mashed potatoes........Kudos to the chef for a fantastic meal.......dessert was a wonderful lemon cake which was very moist and delicious ........all the desserts on the tray looked wonderful.......the waiting staff was extremely friendly and efficient.......in addition to the outdoor patio they have a very romantic indoor area if the noise or evening chill of the outdoor patio isn't for you.......one of the truly great eating spots in Beverly Hills.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I wouldn't waste your time.JosephVIPDined on 2/17/2014Unless you're dying to eat on Rodeo Drive for some reason, there is nothing particularly special about this restaurant. I ordered an omelette and received some weird scramble.Special Features:
- WaitorLilyDined on 2/16/2014The service was wondeful!!! Our waiter, a young handsome man, was amazing. He made sure that we always had everything we needed, and was very kind. The food was outstanding.Special Features:

- Valentines DayMrHippoDined on 2/14/2014When 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.Special Features:
- Tourist spotOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/14/2014I want to fair here because I realize that there was an effort put in by the staff to treat us well but this place is not for locals or foodies, it's a tourist spot so that in itself should tell you what to expect as far as price and ambiance.
