    We went to see the group Sip of Soul. They were outstanding. Excellent musicians, great playlist and wonderful vocals. Also, the room has a good sound and space for dancing -- very nice ambience overall.

    Came on a friday night. Not too many people but many enough to have a nice vibe. Jazz band is amazing, create a very lively atmosphere. Best part is the chocolate Soufflé. Lovely service.

    I have lived in LA for most of my life and had only visited the Beverly Hills Hotel once. I was looking for a fun and exciting nightspot to treat my good friend to for her birthday and Bar 1912 came highly recommended to me from another friend. I made reservations for 9:30 and were pleasantly surprised to have a nice outside table waiting for us. The server was attentive and we ordered two glasses of port and the chocolate soufflé. The port arrived minutes and we started to really take in the atmosphere. They had a jazz band the atmosphere had a nice buzz and feeling to it. When the soufflé arrived it was delicious. We stayed until after midnight and as we left we both commented how busy it was and how we would definitely come back!

    My partner wanted to eat somewhere on iconic Sunset Blvd. She loved my choice of Bar Nineteen 12 @ The Beverly Hills Hotel. We enjoyed a bottle of Inception, a Pinot Noir that I recommend highly. We shared the lobster tacos and a sumptuous cheese plate. The cheese plate was a very generous serving. Our amiable food server had the remaining cheese packed for us in a lovely to-go box, so the memories of dining at Bar Nineteen 12 could continue the following day.

    A trip to Bar Nineteen12 is a fantastic evening. From the live music, to the outstanding service, to the exquisite food, this cannot be beat! Yes, you will pay a little more, you are in the Beverly Hills Hotel, but it's well worth it. You are treated like royalty, because the party seated next to you is royalty. The music cannot be beat, and there's just enough room for a little dancing. We did have 2 small mishaps during the evening, but you would have never known it, because management took care of them impressively.

    It was a fabulous evening from start to end, the appetizers were excellent, the service was great but the enertainment was the best. The enertainment Jeanine Puente and her band made the whole evening. We were there to celebrate a birthday and the energy and music were sensational i would highly recommend bar 1912 esepecially if Jeanine Puente is performing with her hot band.

    I have been to this venue several times and decided to invited a few friends to join me their to celebrate my birthday. The cocktails, finger foods and the great music by Lamint Dozier, Jr was wonderful. It will be a memorable night for me and my group. Everything was on point! I can't until the next time he is performing there. I and others will definitely be there!

    I went here with my husband and two teenage daughters - sadly as they are both under 21 we had to leave by 9pm which I was not aware of!!! as we only arrived at 7.30pm it didn't give us much time to soak in the atmosphere or hear the live Jazz which started at 9 - shame... It was very quiet and the first waitress still seemed unable to attend to us which was a surprise given the hotels reputation. however another great girl stepped in after we sought her out and all was well - the cocktails and virgin cocktails for our girls were great and the food excellent. Would return although as a couple next time...

    I met 2 business colleagues here for a casual dinner outside on the patio. We ended up ordering several appetizers including the soup, mussels, hummus & pita, sliders, lobster tacos & desserts (carrot cake & berry cobbler). Everything was good. The mussels were fishy tasting and smelling so we didn't finish them. Everything else was very good. The service was good and the outdoor ambiance was really nice.

    Went for a few drinks before my boyfriends birthday. It's was a little quiet which we didn't mind. We sat outside and the subset was gorgeous. Drinks were great and they brought out a dessert and candle for my boyfriend. It's expensive but great for a special occasion. Excellent service.

  • Oppressive Security
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 7/30/2013
    We made the mistake of arriving at the hotel as we later learned at the same time as a major Soccer team was in residence . In an attempt to keep soccer fans out of the hotel, security was obstrusive and it made for an unpleasant experience. First hotel officials escort you from your car to the restaurant, I gather so you won't make any detours (this is after interrogating you before entering) The hotel is a few minutes from my home and I thought it would be a nice experience for my house guests last evening in LA. What a mistake. If we had not arrived separately and valet parked our cars, we would have left immediately and never gone to the restaurant.

    It's a very attractive place but service let us down, and a nearby both had little kids and birthday balloons. A bar is not the place for a kids birthday party - why did they let them in? There was also an obnoxious cigar smoker. The Beverly Hills Hotel should be able to do better than this.

    Bar Nineteen 12 was the perfect open air spot for viewing the Kentucky Derby and meeting fun people. Waitresses and barkeeps were very attentive...music at 4 P.M. after the Derby was first class with Eddie Wakes' group. First time there as we always go to the Polo Lounge, but now this can be a favorite! Very cool! There is music several nights of the week so u can find me there!

    If you want expensive drinks in a lounge that looks like you are at the Marriot near the LAX this is the place for you. We had the sampler platter ($50) and I have had better food at a food court at the mall, for about 1/5 the price. The ONLY saving grace was the waitress. She was FANTASTIC. Oh, and did I mention that they create "mood" with Christmas tree lights behind Bed,Bath and Beyond drapes? And this is the BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL? The furniture is by Front Gate. If this is your kind of place, go for it.

  • As a fourth generation Beverly
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 2/18/2013
    As a fourth generation Beverly Hills native my family has been enjoying the hotel since it first opened and it never fails to live up to the hype. I have been many times before, but most recently my husband and I came here for cocktails (we had the Mai Tai and the Diablo) and some light food (Lobster tacos and sliders) and it was absolutely delicious. Service is wonderful, ambiance is romantic and the crowd is always interesting. Despite what others may think I do not think it is that expensive, it's the Beverly Hills Hotel, not the Holiday Inn. Can't wait to return soon. My advice, if you want a more personal and quiet experience go during the week; still an interesting crowd but without the wannabes/noise.

    Our service was wonderful..... the server was energetic, fun and very accomodating to our needs. The appetizers were very tasty and a perfect size. The drinks, however, were not good. How can you mess up martini's? Our Grey Goose martini's tasted like they were made with pepper. We sent them back once, they made them again, and they still tasted like pepper. I could understand one person's tastebuds being off, but there were 4 of us drinking the same vodka and we all thought the drinks were bad. The server was very apologetic and offered to re-do them, but we were on a time schedule and didn't have the time. Not an early evening hot spot - only 10 of us in the entire bar, but suspect it got REALLY BUSY after 10:00. Still had fun.

    Great food, great drinks, and great service. We had a large group celebrating a birthday and the live entertainment played and sang happy birthday to the birthday girl as we were bringing out the cake. The timing couldn't have been better, thank you to the singer, Eddie Wakes. The highlight of the evening was receiving a free bottle of Dom Perignon from a gentlemen my boyfriend and I chatted with while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive. The night couldn't have gone any better, I will definitely be back!
