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.

    We sat outside and enjoyed the street scene on Bedford Drive. Great day just relaxing with friends enjoying a wonderful luncheon. The salads were generous and delicious! The steak frites was perfect. I wish I spent more time in Beverly Hills. I would definitely make that my dining spot.

    This is a lovely restaurant, very warm and inviting. It is a terrific place for Sunday brunch or a weekday lunch. However, we found it a bit disappointing for dinner in that the food, while not bad, didn't merit the prices. The service was good and the maitre d' was quite accommodating in finding us the perfect table.

    This was my second visit to Bedford & Burns, and it was just as great the second time around. Had their Caesar Salad the first time, which was excellent, and tried their Kale Salad the second time, and enjoyed that as well. Their Branzino is the Best!! And their Molten Lava Cake is excellent.

    this is really a wonderful restaurant. It is always busy for lunch, but it really is nice for dinner. The location has had many previous restaurants but it looks like bedford and Burns will make it. the food is solid and creative and the winelist reasonable.

    diningoutVIP
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    this is one of the most valuable 'new' restaurants on the westside. it's got great food, great atmosphere, and a great location. bedford and burns is that rare neighborhood hangout that strives to be superior in every category. it's highly likely that the burns family creates menu ideas while discussing the quest for the 'the best burger', 'the best pizza', 'the best apple tart'. the fact is that there are few restaurants where everything tastes so fresh and homemade - even though sometimes it's a little slow coming out of the kitchen. we've been 7 or 8 times now, and the staff seems to be surprised when it's crowded - something i think they'll have to get used to based on the quality of the experience!

    Had a res to meet 2 other people. They came in gave name and went to bar. 20 min later we came in same name and they sat us and never told the other couple and it was not even busy. Had we not texted them they would still be sitting there. food is average. Waiter is too into himself. I will never go back.

    Servers do not need to interrupt a conversation to ask if everything is alright. The fact that we're eating and not looking around for a server should be sufficient. Have confidence that the food is going to be right and then you don't have to interrupt.

    CRM1VIP

    My husband loves the Lobster ravioli here. He was not disappointed. I had scallops which were tender and delicious. However on this visit the service was a little distracted. Our server was friendly, polite and knowledgeable but we were left waiting a bit too long between courses. It was Saturday and the restaurant although almost empty when we arrived filled quickly so perhaps that was the problem. We will return because the food is excellent.

    Third visit and I enjoy the place a lot. The food is very diverse and the specials always are rather different and give a little more divergency. Everything i have ordered I would easily order again and the people are very willing to do things "your way" to please. Refreshing to see a newer place with no attitude in BH

    mxpbuyVIP
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    The service is the place to start with improvement. We went for an early dinner and the restaurant was, at most, 40% full. The "bottled" water did not taste filtered and seemed to have that fresh-from-the-kitchen-tap flavor. Our waitress brought small white wine glasses for our Napa Cab. My wife's appetizer showed up over 3.5 minutes after mine did. The food was made from quality, fresh ingredients and was generally prepared well, but each dish lacked a little pizzaz and the only one that had any was the Jadori Chicken but that was because it was a bit oversalted. The good news about this place is that the food is good and the portion sizes (especially the appetizers) create some value dining. Still, I hoped for better.

    Went to B&B for a business lunch and requested a "better" table withthe hopes of being able to have a conversation. Although it was somewhat better, I think the restaurant is just plain loud and there's not much they can do about it. On the plus side, we had a great server - very attentive without being intrusive. I order the fish special - it was good but not outstanding. I tend to stick with my old favorites: homemade bisquits, the salads and of course the burger - all are great.

    This was our second visit to this restaurant and it was every bit as good as the first visit. The food is excellent - perfectly prepared fried calamari and the steak and fries first rate. The other entrees were great, the wines by the glass great and the three layer lemon cake outstanding. The service was really outstanding and all of the staff friendly and competent. Definitely worth a return visit and a return visit after that!

    My guy had a hamburger; I ordered lamb burger. Both terrific & juicy. Overcooked, but still very enjoyable. Fries arrived lukewarm. Even a newly served order of hot fries showed they're just not very good. Too limp. Server started out great; but never came back once our entrees were served-when we needed him. Showed up after the fact; pleasant; apologetic (nice gesture but...). We will go back...but we're in no hurry.

    The food is competent but that intangible of of a good restaurant -- everything "clicking"-- was absent here. Service was fair, at best. A small point: the waiter steered us away from a $10 glass of Rose (so why is it on the menu?) and, of course, the recommended one was $14. For Rose at a place like that? They even told Open Table we were a "no-show!' That was dinner. Apparently it is very popular for lunch.

    The food and selection were both good. Our mushroom pizza with truffle oil was delicious. Have had better banana cream pie but was still quite good. A great place for a large group since it wasn't loud and there's a large selection on the menu. If you're looking for a scene-y restaurant, perhaps not the place as the crowd seemed to skew older. I prefer food over club-y vibe and if you do too, you may want to check this restaurant out.
