Polo Lounge @ The Beverly Hills Hotel
What a lovely day!We celebrated my dad's 93rd birthday and my daughter's 37th birthday. It was the perfect afternoon--great food, amazing surroundings, and a great celebration. We felt like we could have been back in the 50's in LA. We just kept saying, "What a lovely day"! Try the raspberry mojito--we loved it even in the virgin incarnation.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!Great food, super friendly place where it's all about seeing and being seen! Highly recommend but bring your biggest wallet! Get the McCarthy salad and the steak frites and save room for the carrot cake dessert. Lunch set us back $200 w/ 2 round of drinks and breakfast a few days later was $150. I had the short rib eggs benedict while my husband went for the salmon soft scramble over a crispy potato nest alongside lemon ricotta pancakes and lemon curd. Each was a special occasion and totally worth the splurge. Valet parking is $8. We left our car, walked 10 min to the shops on Rodeo Dr and splurged on some great pieces at Dolce and Gabbana. GO!! Request an inside table when the weathers not perfect- outside table for all other times!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful serviceMy husband and I stopped into the Polo Lounge for a drink. I'd reserved a table online, thinking we might be dining there, but our plans changed. When we arrived and were seated, we realized we wanted to move into the bar for the quiet (now, after dinner) drink we had envisioned. Our waiter gave us the option of staying where we were or moving, and he found us a table in the bar area and moved us and our drinks there. The level of service he showed us exceeded even our very high expectations for the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Polo Lounge. In fact, every service person we encountered at the hotel treated us as if we were A-list celebs, which we certainly are not. Each one made us feel at home and at ease.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting LA and had to stopVisiting LA and had to stop at the famous Beverly Hills Hotel for breakfast. Great food. Very pricey ($140 for breakfast for 4 of us and that didnt include cocktails) but that is to be expected. Lots to choose from on the menu; would love to visit for drinks and dinner.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLuxurious presentationOur experience was limited because we only wanted a snacky meal. For this reason, I ordered a medium rare waygyu burger which was perfectly cooked. My wife ordered a McCarthy salad and was rather bemused to be presented with a finely diced concoction intended to be blended into its accompanying dressing. She described it as being tasty enough but hard to understand why. We were seated near the piano where a very talented Bubleish singer huskily displayed his considerable ability without a break. The restaurant is large and beautifully decorated with a garden atmosphere.
We also breakfasted there sitting outdoors in a wonderful courtyard drinking freshly prepared orange and carrot juices.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMJust what I ImaginedService is second to none. Everyone is made to feel important. Though a couple of my wife's tortellinis were empty the balance of the meal was very good. Great wine list and the "Old Hollywood" atmosphere was why we came. You can feel the history. I highly reccomend a walk through the property after dinner. A+++ I could stay out of the doghouse with her for well over 45 minutes for this one.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time inThis is the second time in a row that we didn't get our requested table, after going there for lunch for a few years now (about every 2 months). Disappointing. It was our friend's birthday (which we noted in our reservation) so a lovely waiter moved us to a nicer table a few minutes after we sat down. That was soooo kind of him and made our experience all the better. They've changed their flatbread recipe, but otherwise all the food is wonderful.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic and welcoming serviceFantastic and welcoming service from our host. It was a special occasion which I flagged with you/The Polo Lounge and requested a nice table - which we got! So thank you.
A really nice experience and would definitely go back.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good mealEvery one is treated like a star. The patio is beautiful, the dining room is traditional but exudes class. The food is tasty and satisfying. This is not gourmet fine dining. Usually reliable for some star spotting and always an enjoyable meal.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAs I am a visitor to LA theseAs I am a visitor to LA these days I do not get to the Polo Lounge that often but when I do I always enjoy being there. I feel very comfortable asking any business associate or friend as I know I will not be let down. The garden is always so pretty to sit in for lunch and the food and wine options are superb. The wait staff are diligent yet unobtrusive and always friendly.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI just love this place! TheI just love this place! The food, ambience and staff have always been great!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fantastic experience,Absolutely fantastic experience, from service to food to ambience4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every penny!We visited the Polo Lounge this April. Always request a table on the patio as that's where the celebrities are seated. Also, if you sit up on the higher terraces there are heaters the staff can turn on if you are cold. Remember, you are expected to act like a celebrity yourself - do not stare at the celebrities or talk to them or try to get photos with them. (We sat by Liam Hemsworth.) The restaurant is old-fashioned Hollywood but not snobby. We were treated like royalty. Food is great but the service at the Polo Lounge makes you feel like a million dollars.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the old HollywoodWe loved the old Hollywood feel to the place, yet there was also a lot of modern elegance. The service was prompt and friendly. Shrimp penne was very tasty with big plump shrimp. And the chef made us a special club sandwich (not on the menu) with all the right layers of turkey, bacon, swiss cheese, tomato, and such. If the weather is good, the patio is the best place to dine.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for my friend's birthdayWent for my friend's birthday and we had a great time!! The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely go back again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Magical & Memorable Celebration!After an exciting morning downtown - my husband was sworn in as a US Citizen - we headed over to the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel to celebrate the day. When I made the reservation I simply wrote, Celebrating My Husband's Citizenship - that's it. When we arrived, the server greeted us and said to my husband, "Congratulations on your Citizenship!" At the end of our meal my husband was presented with a gorgeous flour-less chocolate cake and written on the plate in chocolate, "Congratulations." Thoughtful and intuitive service, in a picture perfect setting, dining with great friends, made the day magical. Thank you Polo Lounge!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA thing of beauty is a joy foreverI visit the Polo Lounge whenever I visit Beverly Hills. If the distance from my residence in La Jolla was closer (and the drive easier), I would be a more frequent visitor. The location is superb. The setting is beautiful. The piano adds to the delightful atmosphere. The waiters are first rate. The restaurant management has taken the time to select them carefully. Michael was our waiter this time, and he is the epitome of what a waiter/waitress should be. The food is outstanding. The fish is wild. The tea selection and quality are unsurpassed. I am an intellectual/scientist, and celebrity sighting is at the bottom of my list. However, should this be of interest, I have spotted Anderson Cooper, Nicole Richie, David Spade, the Olsen twins...3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious dining inside orDelicious dining inside or out with attentive and friendly service at an attractive venue.11/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
