Delicious Breakfast Outside
My sister and I recently enjoyed a lovely breakfast at the Polo Lounge. We sat outside and the ambiance sublime. We loved our waiter and the other staff who helped advise us of exciting and unique things to do while in Los Angeles. The food was delicious and it came quickly. We were both treated like royalty, and it was a divine experience. There was no waiting around. It was a fantastic experience, and I look forward to going back again soon.

Great service, dessert needs help
Food isn't your number-one priority if you're at the Polo Lounge. The service was great, the dining room was good enough, and the entrees were very good. The desserts, however, were lackluster for a restaurant that charges like this. The chocolate trio was all right, but the berry crisp I could have made better at home in the dark with one arm tied behind my back. Get a pastry chef, Polo Lounge!

This was my first time dining at the Polo Lounge. It was the best experience ever! I was celebrating a friends birthday. The food was absolutely wonderful, as well as the wait staff, and surroundings! This will not be my last time here!!

Polo Lounge never disappoints
This is our go-to place when we are in LA and want to step things up a bit for a lunch or brunch. We love the service, atmosphere, the waitstaff and the food. It is rather expensive but we feel given all of its excellent attributes it is well worth the money.

Lovely lunch for mom's 80th.
We had a family lunch for my mother's 80th birthday and it couldn't have been better. The service was excellent, everyone loved their food and our table in the garden patio was perfect.

For Out of Town Guests
Dining at this restaurant is a memorable experience, from having the valet warmly greet you as you pull up, experiencing the beauty fo the foyer of the hotel, and walking through the famed Polo Lounge. We had a choice of in-door or out-door dining. There was wonderful live music being played indoors and since we wanted to visit we chose the outdoor venue. Our waitress was very professional, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed Kobe burgers and a chopped salad. Along with cocktails and wine. My guests had teh Kobe burgers and raved about them. I enjoyed the salad. All-in-all, an enjoyable (albeit expensvie) evening!

The food was excellent, and so was the service! The chocolate soufflé is a reason of its own to go there!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service, wine...divine.
We also ventured up to BarNineteen12, where again the service, drinks & music were exceptional.

The Polo Lounge?!
What can I say . . . this was the world famous Polo Lounge! We ate outside, shaded by large umbrellas. Lovely setting. Inside is most beautiful. Parking only $8.00 with validation. For the three of us, the bill with tip (no drinks) came to $120.

We had a wonderful dining experience, my guest from Australia want's to come back and stay in the hotel so they can enjoy all the amenities the hotel offers.
Our lunch was delicious and the server was very friendly.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have eaten here many times and have always had a great time. Sitting outside is the best, in my opinion. The service is excellent. I had the caesar salad with grilled shrimp, delicious! The notable thing about my meal, however, is the dessert. We ordered the goat cheese cheesecake. I have never had cheesecake made with goat cheese so I was a little unsure. It was EXCELLENT!! It had a beautiful presentation. About the size of a silver dollar pancake, it was so rich that was all you needed. Served with a berry sorbet, the perfect pairing. Definitely make a reservation and order the cheesecake!

Lunch with daughter
Wanted to give my daughter a glimpse into the la lifestyle. Hoped to see a celeb. Wasn't disappointed. Saw 3!!!!! Very exciting. Not to mention the food was fantastic. Had the west Hollywood salad. Yum!! The patio was delightful. Perfect place for a girls lunch. Would recommend very highly. Might need to make this an annual event

The Polo Lounge puts dining into a category all on its own. The food and drink combined with the acoustic guitar player and the warm summer air made for an exceptional dining experience. My group enjoyed the food and ambiance so much that we returned for a second visit and was impressed that the level of service and quality of food was consistent. This is a definite stop for anyone visiting Beverly Hills.

It was a nice evening with the Family. Service very friendly, good Food, good wine.

Let's Do Lunch!
The Polo Lounge is a great, relaxing, quiet place to do lunch. The food is also very good and I've always had top service. I drop in, from time to time, to do lunch in its very calming environment and always leave feeling relaxed and well fed.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
attentive, but not too attentive. isn't that all you really need out of a restaurant's wait staff?
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice and expensive
We had breakfast at the polo lounge. Service was outstanding! The setting was very rich Hollywood style; being our first stop in LA the grounds were an attraction in itself to us. The food was ok, nothing that I'd like to get again; especially at that price. We had the Pink Palace and eggs bennedict Their French press coffee was not good. The complimentary coffee we had at the Marriott hotel was even better than that.
The big surprise was that the validated parking is $8! Which would be fine if the valet guy did not keep the tip I gave him before I found out about the $8 and then took the $8 on top of that.

We love this evening with our Kids. Great Location, great Service
We´ll come back, when we stay in LA.

Best Birthday Dinner Ever!
The service was the best I have ever experienced in my 60+ years. Everything was PERFECT !!!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not my lucky night
Both the service and food were excellent - no argument. However, we were unlucky because we were seated in an area which turned out to be the 'kids' room. A table next to us was very noisy (4 kids dressed in pajamas one-sies for 10 year olds). Two other tables also had children, but they were well behaved & appropriately dressed for the restaurant.

Outstanding food and Service
This is a classy restaurant in a glamorous Beverly Hills hotel!

Great ambiance. Jazz was very mellow and added to the overall pleasure.

Perfect, yet again!
The Bev. Hills Hotel (aka Pink Palace) does not disappoint. What another awesome dining experience. Special gratitude to Pepe and Emily.

Home sweet home.
The entire hotel is like coming home. Before my family moved to Woodland Hills, we lived in Beverly Hills. The Polo Lounge was great for business, quiet talks, celebrations, a get away ...anything you can think of. Not many annoying tourists, FANTASTIC STAFF, and no paparazzi. I have been a 20 year guest. Cheers to 20 more and great memories to go with each visit. The Bevely Hills Hotel is a fabulous "Cheers". Take your time. Enjoy the flowers and every detail you can see. Classic and beautiful. That's how I feel when I am there. 5 stars from a very loyal guest.

famous for a reason
We ate there several time.
Everything was perfect.
Don't miss the Steak tartare and chocolate souffle!

Treated like a celeb
I came here with my mom and two girlfriends before wedding dress shopping. I thought it would be fun to be super girly and go the famous Beverly Hills Hotel for breakfast. When I arrived the hostesses greeted me with a "congrats". They preceded to sit me at Vera Wangs favorite table in a cozy corner of the outside part of the restaurant. The server insisted we have Bellinis and was fawning over my recent engagement. Even the wait staff clearing the plates were congratulating me. At the end of the meal I was given a coffee/chocolate ice cream cake with the word "Congratulations" written on the plate in chocolate. I truly felt special and dotted on and this is hands down the best service I have ever received at a restaurant.

Ladies Who Lunch
It was a lovely afternoon eating outside, the waiter suggested a lovely chardonnay, our salads were amazing! The best is the tortilla soup so delicious.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as always
Top shelf service and ambiance. Very reliable and comfortable spot. I never regret going. This is one of those cases where reputation is based on truth.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner prices were reasonable and the food was good, not amazing. Service was excellent. Nice live piano music during dinner. Music ended earley (about 10). It was a Saturday night. Not a hot spot. Not many in the lounge, no music.

Ultimate Beverly Hills
My first time at Polo was awesome. Food was perfect. Staff was super attentive and friendly and accommadated my requests to a T. The atmosphere and soft guitar music set the mood beautifully. I was treated with the same respect & friendliness that Richard Geer & wife (seated across from me) received from same waiter.

Great place to enjoy quality
Great place to enjoy quality food with extensive drink menu. A little overpriced for the food but venue is beautiful. Very chic and classy. Good for a romantic dinner. Also love it for afternoon tea (previously I booked a party of 20 there).

A Classic Meal in a Classic Setting
We're long-time Polo Lounge fans but for some reason hadn't been there much in the last year or so. One meal and we're regulars again for sure. First courses: wedge salad, good as always; fig salad, really wonderful--fresh and interesting. Dover sole, superb, and linguine/meat balls, very good as well. Shared a peanut butter/chocolate souffle--like a Reese's cup turned into a souffle, kind of a fun dessert. Our waiter, Eugene, was amazing. Attentive, warm, and knowledgeable, he knew exactly the right balance to hit with us. A very nice guy, that's a plus, but also a very good wait person--and that combination is one to celebrate. Next visit, we definitely ask for him--he guided us to the Dover sole, the star of dinner. Great meal.

Impeccable service. Attentive
Impeccable service. Attentive to every detail. Everything from the bread basket to the deservedly notable soufflé was delicious. Thank you.

If you want a classy, upscale venue in a site that WAS the hub of the golden age of Hollywood, look no further. White-coat clad waiters that are attentive to every detail provide suggestions and service. As an example, we started with their signature steak tartare, prepared table side, and to our specifications of spice/heat, and offer a small spoonful for taste/adjustment before serving. Ice for the sparkling water was served in a separate glass with spoon, so as to not water down the sparkle. All food items were delicious and beautifully presented. The Dungeness crab cake on heirloom tomatoes (prepared to taste like a tomatoe jam) was fabulous, and the poussin (small chicken) was roasted to crispy tenderness. We WILL return!!

very sophisticated restaurant although extremely expensive for what you receive
wonderful service, beautiful setting both inside and outside on the patio
very knowledgable wait staff
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
While the prices may cause a bit of sticker shock, the experience is well worth the price. The food was amazing and even on a diet I had to indulge with the blue cheese bread. Every bite was worth the extra hour in the gym, especially the carrot cake with rum raisin ice cream... I couldn't help myself!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another AMAZING afternoon!
As always my friends and I enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing lunch at the Polo Lounge! Exceptional service, delicious food in a beautiful, serene setting! Not to mention the caring smiles and hugs from long time friends Joseph, Felix and Michael. The BHH is truly blessed to have these three gentlemen as part of their family! THANK YOU SO MUCH once again!

The Alfred Experience
Everyone daydreams about what it would be like to have there own personal Alfred the butler at home. No need to stretch the imagination when dining at the Polo Lounge. The staff is absolutely on point. From maitre d', to bust staff, to server they are there serving and attending to all of your needs.
The ambiance is classic California. Surround yourself with their breathtaking garden and lush palm trees making you leave behind the urban scape of Los Angeles. A truly fabulous weekend escape even if it was just for a few hours to enjoy lunch.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the beautiful garden setting and ambience of the Polo Lounge. The service was exceptional - friendly and attentive without being snobbish or annoying. Amazing coffee and delicious food, especially the lemon ricotta pancakes which were the most amazing pancakes I have ever eaten.

Over the Top
Expected high prices. Food good and about what I expected price-wise with the following exceptions: We were asked if we wanted still water or with gas. We requested still and they brought an open glass Evian bottle that looked like it had been used multiple times. I was charged $9 for it but I have no idea if it was really Evian. (should have been opened at the table) They charged $20 per short pour glass of an ordinary house chardonnay (Raymond) and $7 for a cup of coffee. Mostly upset about the water but my fault I didn't just say plain tap water.
