Caulfield's Bar and Dining Room
Caulfield's on WilshireOur waitperson was exceptionally attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The offerings were varied, and we enjoyed the artichoke heart appetizer very much. We ordered wine, and my glass was very bitter tasting. The bartender agreed it was 'gone' and provided me with a glass from a new bottle. The fish was delicious, and the hand-cut pasta dish with peas and morel mushrooms was particularly flavorful. We had a lovely panna cotta dessert with fresh strawberries and pistachio ice cream--superb! The cappuccino was really great, and we left feeling satisfied but not stuffed. NOTE: Bread is not served unless you order their basket assortment. Actually, for two people who are trying to keep in shape, this is a good thing ;o)5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood early dinner experienceWe had dinner at 5pm and were the only couple in the restaurant so had great service! The restaurant has a comfortable bistro feel with tile floors and wooden furnishings. My grilled artichoke hearts were perfectly done and my spouse's fresh pea soup was very good. Our main courses were mixed with the marinated skirt steak well prepared and the fried chicken with a good crust but slightly overdone. Dessert was the best with the sticky toffee pudding. We would go back to try other dishes.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is good, but pricey forFood is good, but pricey for what it is. Dishes are deconstructed. Not crowded for lunch, so great if you want it a bit quieter to actually talk. I expect the bar scene is hopping at Happy Hour and beyond.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStill wishing for some healthierStill wishing for some healthier options, but very good salad and nice tuna sandwich which was basically a nicoise salad sandwich.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and loved theGreat service and loved the skirt steak and the artichoke salad were incredible.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWatch what you order....it adds upfood was good but I don't consider this to be a fine dining place and yet the final tab was pretty pricey for what we got. Mostly appetizer type bar food ----and they charge for bread and butter! Really!!!
If money is not an issue, then go for it. The service though was top notch.
Dinner was $150.00 for two: one meal was an entree and the other was soup and a pizzette style pizza. 2 drinks.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been here twice now,I have been here twice now, and the food here is really good. I recommend the burger, salmon, meatballs, and brussel sprouts. They have something they call bread pudding, but I am not really sure what it was...but it wasn't bread pudding. The doughnuts were quite good. They should turn down the lights a bit and that would add more ambiance. Also, I have been there at prime time on weekend nights, and the place never seems to have enough people in it to get "energy." They need to do something to draw people in. Groupon? It would draw more people that Blackboard Eats, which I did use. One small note, I was there to celebrate some friends who got engaged.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy bar of choiceThe bar at Caulfield's is hand-down my favorite place to have a cocktail in all of Beverly HIlls. The amazingly charming French bartender, who mixes killer drinks, makes Caulfield's bar a must-go if your feeling like a drink and you're in the area.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. 3.00 chargeExcellent food. 3.00 charge for bread is a rip off.
