A word from Bedford & Burns
In the heart of Beverly Hills’ Golden Triangle, the Burns Family welcomes you to their fresh take on the American bistro. In a warm residential setting, punctuated by great contemporary art, or on the heated sidewalk patio, guests dine on a menu of personal favorites drawing upon the abundant resources available to us in Southern California. Fresh oysters, wood-fired pizzas and meats, and classic fare, including the famous Bob Burns Caesar salad, offer cuisine that is one part solid tradition and the other part fresh inspiration. California wines, craft beers and classic cocktails round out the dining experience.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "this restaurant is consistently good.From the warm greeting at the door to the excellent food and service I always enjoy my time there "
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The decor is nice but the food mediocre. This relatively new restaurant must be in financial trouble already since they charge $1 for bread (which was mediocre). I won't be returning."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Slow service, tight quarters(people bumping into your chairs the whole time), two uni-sex bathrooms for entire restaurant and you could barely hear the people at your table."

  • "here is a good opportunity to have a great bar & drink selections, wines and beers on tap, very good food selection from Exotic and Interesting specials to their great Burger and the Pizza, fabulous.... in a comfortable contemporary designed setting- the owner walks around and seems to truly care about your satisfaction with the experience- quiet enough to talk, hear and be heard- lovely evening......we'll be back-"

  • "Fairly extensive menu but difficult to discern the chef's intent or theme - just da ya want meat or fish kind of menu. Caesar salad didn't cross the Rubicon of excitement, the cheeseburger was less memorable than In n Out and the prices were unjustified save for the establishment being in the price belt of Beverly Hills."

  • "This is a very nice restaurant conveniently locate on the corner of Brighton and Bedford in Beverly Hills. Although the noise level made conversation a bit challenging, both the food and excellent service make it a go-to place for lunch. The meals were quite good; there are a number of choices and the service was excellent. I recommend Bedford & Burns as a nice place for both comfort food and more exotic tastes."

  • "Bedford and Burns delivers a consistent food experience. I would like to see them bring up the food just one notch. The salads are OK, but not amazing. The fish tacos, cheddar bisquits, and burgers are always great."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "Bedford & Burns is a terrific lunch spot . As much as I love the spot & the owners & staff ... service needs to improve there are some terrific dishes; Calamari salad , gazpacho, burger, tuna tartare , caesar salad, fish tacos, and more ... but - more salads are needed ... clean simple salads. The Italian chop is far far too cumbersome & has too many ingredients ... 4 different meats !?!!? ... zucchini, corn, lettuces, and more. ....TOOOOOO MUCH ! Glad to see a restaurant in this location make it for a year !! Lunch is PACKED .. I recommend reservations !"

  • "Not a bad experience, but nothing to make me run back...noise was deafening, even at lunch. Food was good, server attentive. Host accommodating and friendly."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Food was pretty good although the cheddar biscuits were disappointing - no cheddar flavor. The weakest thing was the service. The waiter did the very minimum, not offering a second drink, wine with dinner, or dessert. The busboy left finished plates on the table until he brought the next course although he wasn't busy. It was an adquate but entirely forgettable experience. To make matters worse, the restaurant reported to Open Table that we had failed to show up! We had to straighten out that misunderstanding."

  • "The food was graat, especially the salads and the torte desserts. The service was also excellent. I liked that they offered a lot of comfort food. All in all we thought the food was excellent and our server was very attentive. We would certainly go back!"

  • "food consistently good, service always attentive. Portions generous and prices on most items moderate. Pleasant dining experience each time... have eaten there over 20 times since it opened. a tad noisy for serious conversations."

  • "We had a delicious dinner. Our waiter was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable and also very attentive. This was our second time eating dinner at Bedford & Burns and I will certainly go back."

  • "We have been to Bedford & Burns several times. The drinks and appetizers have been much better than the entrees every time. This last visit, my swordfish was cool, not hot and the curry sauce was served on top, not on the side as requested and it was thick and pretty bland. Couldn't eat the sides, either. I want to love this place. The soups are delish and the salads good. Have been underwhelmed with the entrees. A few times, the food was so salty, I could not eat it. Beverly Hills really needs a great neighborhood place that's easy to fall into, like the Hamlet on Sunset used to be. I appreciate that the noise level is comfortable and you can talk to each other at the table."

  • "I was excited to try this restaurant, but it was a underwhelming. The restaurant was very nicely designed, but I thought the food was only mediocre. The service was below par, unfortunately, and I was overall very disappointed. I had roasted duck which was their special, but it was totally overdone, and too sweet with the sauce. I also thought most of the textures of the side courses, and the soup were basically the same. Their menu ranged from a variety of options, so I thought I would be able to find some good options, but alas... :( I would try this one more time to make sure my experience was not wrong, but I'm hoping this will improve over the next few months before I try it again."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "I don't remember what I ate, but I do remember that our server was not friendly at all. We felt rushed to order and never smiled or very helpful. Don't think I would return. So many other great restaurants in the area."

  • "Great meeting place for friends at lunch. Staff was very attentive without hovering and surroundings are pleasant but not overstated. We shared the tuna tartar to start and both had very crispy and fresh house salads to accompany our entrees. My friend had the salmon and found it to be quite good. I had the trout. It was surrounded by a nice selection of roasted veggies. While it was moist and flavorful it had a little too much oil on the fish and the veggies for my taste. (same could be said of the won ton chips with the tuna) Dessert menu was inviting but not in the post holiday diet period for us, so we skipped. Overall quite pleasant but a bit on the noisy side."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "It's not often in LA that one can actually enjoy a business lunch beyond the business aspect. This lovely restaurant brings back the simplicity and necessity of elegance. Not overdone, not trying... it just is. The Burns sisters are a welcoming force that still maintain dining as culturally essential. Gathering for a meal as a vitally sensual way of life - whether doing business or effortlessly enjoying a moment with friends. This gem is a must. Enjoy."

  • "I live down the street so I come here quite often. The decor and ambience is quite nice. Food is good too. My favs are the brussel sprouts, kale salad, cheeseburger, margherita pizza and ALL of the soups are good. The kale salad is SO good. I think everything is priced well. Service is friendly and prompt, solid dinner spot."

  • "Went for an early new year's eve dinner, but ordered off the regular menu. Started with two excellent cocktails -- the Griddle is just phenomenal...rye bourbon, maple syrup, egg whites, and a piece of bacon. Yum! Girlfriend had the pear-infused vodka. Tasty, too. Shared the shrimp pesto pizza and butternut squash burrata as appetizers, then we each ordered the Channel Island sea bass with broccolini and tapenade, which was cooked perfectly, sharing a side of Brussels sprouts. I hadn't been to this restaurant site in decades, but will absolutely be back to eat again. And soon."

  • "Had a great dinner here. The manager Charlie was excellent and service staff very nice. There is a nice round table for 2-3 that is nice for a romantic dinner or more private experience. Food was good. Amazing French onion soup...salads were excellent. The restaurant is not pretentious for its location."

  • "My wife and I had dinner here on Friday night with another couple. I can say it was a very enjoyable evening. The waiter was very knowledgable and attentive ( but did not hover) , the food was excellent - 2 of us ordered the steak frites, one had the spaghetti and chicken meatballs and one had the special pork chops- all very good. My steak melted in my mouth before I could chew! Desert was fruit cobbler with ice cream , very nice! I recommend this restaurant, and will go back and try it for lunch also"

  • "We really enjoyed our first visit to this new eatery in Beverly Hills. The food was fresh and sensible. The service was lovely. Bonnie Burns, the hostess and co-owner could not have been more helpful and kind....a very rare experience to find these days. Prices were reasonable and the menu was homey. I can not wait to go back again!"

  • "My date and I hit Bedford on a Saturday night at 7:30p. The bar was full but the tables were mostly empty. The place was much more full by the time we left. Our waiter was top notch in very way. They had 5 or more soups on the menu, and the two we ordered were very tasty, very good. Same with our salads, nicely done. They had a steak on special and I ordered it, and it was nice, tasty and cooked just right, with nice veggies on the side. My date ordered a couple veggie dishes and she was pleased. We'll go back."

  • "Our friends are always raving about the incredible lunch spot they found, well, we tried it for dinner on a Friday night. Party of five (we brought our five year old with us). We all agreed it blew us away. Incredible food, everything we tried was exceptional. The menu description doesn't begin to convey how great the food is.... we consider ourselves foodies and this hit every mark. Great wine list, not overwhelming but solid choices. Starters, awesome. My kale salad was the best I have ever had. Entrees were out of this world (we all had something different and agreed it was exceptional). Menu really hits all tastes, wonderful family owners were all in the house and service was attentive. Truly pleased - we will be back!"

  • "I took my husband here for his Birthday. It was our first time and turned out to be a perfect evening. The Caesar Salad is one of the best in town and the chicken meatballs were incredible. The evening ended with a good old fashioned hot fudge sundae. My husband and I look forward to returning to try the thin-crust pizza and homemade soups!"

  • "We ate at Bedford and Burns for the first time last Saturday night. It will be a new go-to spot for us. The comfortable but chic ambiance with all of the Burns (of Bobbie Burns fame) family in evidence was reminiscent of Suzanne Goin's restaurants. We started with calimari, their famous over-the-top bruschetta, and grilled artichokes. These are fun to share and simply delicious with a signature flavor to each that set them apart. We enjoyed the kale and Caesar salads and the mushroom soup was diviine. My husband had the special short ribs, I had the special chicken with morels and our guest enjoyed his Steak Frites. Everything was tender and artfully seasoned. The dining room was packed when we left at 8:00 p.m. Enjoy!"

  • "Be prepared for it possibly being VERY loud inside, depending on how busy and how many parties are in the restaurant. For the first half of our meal it was so loud inside that I almost couldn't stand it - yes I am a little bit sensitive to noise. Once a few of the more boisterous groups left, it was just fine though. The pureed Market Vegetable soup was really great. The roasted chicken was juicy and perfectly prepared, but it's just a breast and wing, I believe. All of our food was very good."

  • "My husband and I weren't terribly hungry and decided that B&B would offer the right mix of options for us, if we didn't want to have A main course. It was perfect. They have great soups, for one thing. My tomato bisque was yummy. My husband loves the onion soup. He says its as good as it gets. I had the ahi tartare appetizer for my "meal" and it was almost more than I could finish. He had the Bouillabaisse and it was a huge bowl of seafood in a delicious broth. More food than he probably wanted, but it was finished nonetheless. The cocktails are always good here. We like the variety of the menu, with comfort food as well as "foodie" fare. So regardless of what we might be in the mood for, we can usually find something just right."
