    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have now been fortunate enough to dine at the Belvedere for 20 years. Although I only get to L A a few times a year (travelling from Orlando), the food and service are always exceptional. My March 5 dinner was no exception. Even more rare, the great food is not overpriced and you have a wide menu range. I know of no better restaurant in the U S. To travel to the L A area and miss it, is truly a tragedy.

    One the best service in town. Very good but not the best food in town. However, always a very enjoyable dinner as they use very good quality food products and the ambience is so nice. It's nice sometimes to just get very good food and excellent service instead of maybe great food and awful service and ambience. New menu has been updated and we are making way through and really enjoyed especially the trout and pork belly. They serve fantastic dim sum and bar food as well.

    Is is possible to have an absolutely perfect dinner in LA- everything from simply parking the car to the best service in food anyone can ask for? Yes. Yes a thousand times over in Belvedere. The service and overall dining experience was beyond our expectations. The service was the best service we've had in over 10 years of fine dining in LA. It was consistent from teh second we sat down until the very end walking out. A unique complete combination of special attention (the waiters went above and beyond)an absolutely delicious meal, flowing champagne and the warmth of the ambiance made for a perfect night. I can't thank the waiters, the chef, the valet and hostess enough for such an amazing experience.

    The Belvedere is an unusual beautiful and tastefull restaurant and has a very nice and attentive staff. But the food was not made with care and dilligence. The langustines were over cooked, the steak was tastless and the dessert was almost unedible as the taste of the lemon marengue was all wrong and had a direct faul taste.

    A slightly disappointing evening. For the first time in more than 30 meals at this fine restaurant, our server was mildly condescending and the food was very slow coming out of the kitchen. That said, the food was quite good if not quite up to their superlative standards. I wonder if they might have been understaffed. We shall go back and hope this was aberrant and not the new "normal" at this, our favorite restaurant for happy occasions.

    Every year my friend and I have our holiday dinner at the Belvedere and every year I continue to be impressed by the food, the staff and the overall experience. There are few places I would give a perfect "10" - The Belvedere is one of them. You are never rushed. The staff seem to anticipate your every need. We sat and had a cocktail at the table and the waiter brought menus just as the last drops were done - perfect timing. The manager Ramon was a perfect host and brought us some lovely desert wine to finish our meal at the end. We were the last couple in the room and the feeling we got from staff (without being told a word) was stay as long as you want. I love this place!
