This was my second time here for brunch and it was better than the last. The food is amazing and you get more than what you pay for. The staff is amazing and the wait staff make you feel like royalty. I will definitely be back again.

Best Brunch I've had in LA!
Quiet, excellent food quality and a sophisticated Beverly Hills feel and crowd.
Only small complaint is that there was so much on the table (when appetizers were served family style) that I found myself bumping my mimosa glass and almost spilled it.

An afternoon of Elegance
Lovely presentation of food....but, way too much salt.
Very pleasant waiter, think I have had this waiter before.....not stuffy.
Great ambiance...menu needs a bit of a change

Nice lunch for a friend's
Nice lunch for a friend's birthday. They had her special menu printed and also a small chocolate mousse with her name and "Happy Birthday" on the plate in chocolate. Not cheap of course as it is the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills but all in all a lovely afternoon.

Outstanding service, okay food
I've been here three or four times now over several years, and it is a consistently good restaurant. The appetizers were quite small portion wise but very tasty. Three of our party ordered the fish special and while the presentation was beautiful the taste was only average. Not bad, but certainly nothing special. My jidori chicken and lobster entree was delicious and I was happy I opted for that over the fish special.
Service was over the top outstanding, and all of the desserts from chocolate soufflé to mint ice cream creation were fabulous.

Awesome food, however, the ambience, specifically was a letdown from what we had anticipated, i give 5 stars for the food, 1 star for ambience, it's not a "wow" ambience experience, not like cut, drai's etc... more of a 60 + crowd.

TOP-NOTCH SERVICE, AND GREAT FOOD
We've frequented the Belvedere for a few years, and the service is absolutely top notch from the numerous restaurants we have visited all over the world. The servers are very attentive, knowledgeable, respectful and prompt, BUT you play a hefty premium for this service. The food is really fresh and good, too! They have an excellent filet mignon, and the truffles mac & cheese is wonderful.
We are a couple in our late 30's, and we find that most of the patrons are mostly older to elderly, and there are very few young people in the restaurant, unless with their parents or grandparents. They also have a very vibrant bar scene next door. The decor of the place looks very 80's to 90's Golden Girls motif, but we love it for a quiet night out.

there is still elegance amongst us.
there are very few elegant restaurants left in Los Angeles and this is definitely one of them. from the moment you enter the room you are treated like someone special. the waiters and waitresses are impeccable and quite helpful. the food was superb. I really enjoyed the short ribs. I had a cocktail before dinner and it was mixed perfectly. We have been there several times and we will keep coming back.

Best Champagne Brunch in LA
European elegance, white dinner jacket waiter service, wonderful ambience and a 3 course gourmet, champagne brunch menu and possible movie star sightings. Nothing comes close to the Peninsula's "Belvedere" for Sunday Brunch in Los Angeles!

We went on a very quiet Sunday evening. Only two other tables occupied when we arrived and only one when we were getting ready to leave. Old school shiek with paintings and decorative wallpaper. Sergio was very pleasant and attentive. The short rib dinner was very tasty. Fall off the bone meat, nicely prepared carrots, and unique Japanese sweet potatoes. Crab chowder and rasberry sorbet rounded out the meal. I would recommend for a special occasion meal for sure.

If Only There Were More Like This
There are plenty of hot spots in Hollywood where the young, adventurous set can risk the night in a loud, boisterous environment while jumping velvet ropes and attempting to avoid what's called on the east coast the "bridge and tunnel" crowd. But where does one go for a sure bet when they want to experience reliable fine-dining in an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere? The Belvedere. Great food, exceptional service, no-rushing even though it was almost 10PM when we arrived on a Wednesday evening. It's that simple.

I moved further south about 10 years ago, but it is absolutely worth the drive from OC for this delightful place. On this visit we enjoyed the Truffle Mac and Cheese, Cobb Salad, Butternut Squash Ravioli and Filet Mignon. Every bite of every dish was a 10+. I often take a few bites and take the rest home, so I can try more items. This time was no exception but for the Butternut Squash Ravioli. I couldn't stop! Every bite of this yummy savory and sweet dish made me forget the topic at hand. I devoured it all rapidly. I consider myself quite a connoisseur of this dish, and this is my #1 choice on all coasts abroad as well as the U.S. This is the strongest most positive review I have ever given, and I am considered a harsh critic.

The quintessential spot for
The quintessential spot for a power breakfast or lunch meeting. Great service, amazing ambiance and satisfactory food. I wish there were more effort to have serious cuisine here. The corned beef hash was more like frozen hash browns with some peppers and a little corned beef mixed in. The croissants were tough and unspecial. The egg in the hole was tasty as was the eggs in white wine but nothing stood out here. Cannot beat the ambiance however as it is truly a graceful respite from the LA right outside the door. Prices are too high of course as you are paying for the luxury of the establishment.

Everything was outstanding - the ambience was a bit out dated for me, but still appropiate for the experience.
We had a 5 course tasting menu, with a total of 9 different plates (the soup was the only pre-selected options and was delicious) - all were excellent. The only thing we both thought meh about was the Short Ribs - we have had better, but you should still give them a try. Everything else from the hostess to the after dinner coffee was OUTSTANDING!

We love this place. A little pricey but worth it. The food is excellent and so is the service. We always save this place as a special occasion.
