Spago - Beverly Hills
Lunch at SpagoI always think of Spago when I need a reservation for lunch with a special friend or an elegant dinner with friends or family.
The food is beautifully prepared and presented, delicious and inspiring( I like to cook). You are treated like an invited guest
by the staff. The service is excellent and impressively gracious. It is an experience to be savored. Love it !5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStar treatment for allThis was our second time eating at Spago. Everyone there goes out of their way to make you feel like you are special. We sat near a few movie and television stars and it seemed that we were all treated the same. It was a very special treat! The food was delicious.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMworth every penny.Went to Spago on my one year anniversary. It's a great place to dine, to celebrate, and to have a business meeting.
From the moment I received my call to confirm my reservation the afternoon of, I knew it was going to be a great experience!
The reviews I read we're great, and Were nothing short of what I personally experienced.
Spago is a great place in a great city, great people, great service and amazing food!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food at SpagoAs always the food at Spago does not disappoint. It's always spectacular without being over the top. The new decor is very blah but who cares with food like this.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWolfgang doesn't disappoint!This was my second time visiting the restaurant and let me tell you, it was fantastic...again! The food is always amazing and the service is the best in Beverly Hills. The flavors are so bold, so fresh, so unique, but all so familiar. Wolfgang takes traditional items and makes them into something extraordinary. Both times that I have visited the restaurant, Wolfgang himself has come around to each table shaking people's hands and introducing himself. Now THAT is class!! And if the food and service aren't enough, the plastic surgery parade and other eclectic people watching are second to none. It is pricey, so make sure it's a special occasion or that you bring your company credit card.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timerExceeded my expectations. Thought it was going to be another celeb chef place which had peaked long ago. But I was wrong, Spago is right up there w French laundry, per se and le Bernadin. Looking forward to returning.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWolfgang Puck looks greatIt was a treat for me and my guests to have none other then Chef Puck stop by our table and chat. He looks great and seemed to be reveling in the full restaurant.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch at SpagoFood and service was awesome , will definitely return :)))5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLived Up To ExpectationsThe food was excellent, and the service was exceptional. I will definitely go back for a special occasion in the future.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMUnbelievable experienceService was impeccable. We waited for 15 minutes and got a free appetizer as a result. Food is so delicious. Stars are everywhere and Wolfgang is part of the restaurant - a must do in Beverly Hills.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great place to visitAlways a great place to visit and eat. The new décor is very nice and tidy looking and the menu is exciting as always. If you would like the weiner schnitzel - they'll gladly make it for you, but it's no longer on the menu. :( We always take out-of-towners here and they are consistently left with a fantastic impression. Young-ish staff - but nothing like the young staff at say, Villa Blanca. They're professional and courteous at all times.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe oysters, short ribs,citrusThe oysters, short ribs,citrus dessert. No need to say anything more. Great food and service4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWolfgang's flagship showcaseSpago never disappoints. You are greeted in a friendly manner as you enter the always busy restaurant. The wait staff is professional, friendly and accommodating. The menu has new things to try as well as old favorites. I've always been treated well at Spago and it remains my favorite Los Angeles restaurant. When Wolf is in house he mingles with his guests and stops to chat with those of us he knows. Spago is an event--not just a place to eat.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place was very warm (tooThe place was very warm (too many heaters)
Although we had a reservations yet we had to wait over 20 min to be seated
Food was very good and fresh but not that amazing
However the staff were great and very friendly and welcoming4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and presentation!Amazing food and presentation! It was a bit difficult to carry on a private conversation. A bit loud.
Otherwise, just a fabulous meal!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting from HoustonWe were visiting from Houston Texas and wanted to do something special. This was it from the minute we arrived everything was really nice the hostesses greeted us and our waiter took great care of us. The food was fresh and the presentation and taste just made it perfect.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved it! We loved theWe loved it! We loved the decor, the food and the service. We were treated like VIP with complimentary Champagne and appetizers. The oyster shooters were incredible and the beet salad was simple, fresh and tasty. We savored every bite of every dish. A perfect night. Thank you Spago!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWolfgang Puck came out toWolfgang Puck came out to say hello to diners. Very nice. I'd go back again.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat. A fantastic food experience.Just fantastic. Fun to shake Wolgang's hand as well. Worth every penny.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. The OystersExcellent food. The Oysters were the best I ever had. Each dish was better the one before.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dined at Spago severalWe had dined at Spago several times, but not since the redecoration which is tasteful & elegant. The menu has changed too though I had the Puck special wienerschnitzel which was consistent & good. My wife had Halibut with an F. Adria foamy presentation & our guest devoured the veal chop. Appetizer salads are well dressed but our guest's asparagus soup was overwhelmed by sweet English peas. Cocoanut soufflé & blood orange sorbet for desert looked & tasted very good. The wine list is a problem. There is a one page selection by their wine advisor, which is useful. Otherwise, the book contains 1000's of listings & is useless unless you know exactly what you want. The wine prices are impressive too but consistent with this restaurant.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThere is very little to complainThere is very little to complain about with Spago. We had a spectacular whole duck which was crispy on the outside and juicy inside. They only have a few each night so ask, you won't regret it.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYes ... it's expensive. AndYes ... it's expensive. And yes, it's worth every penny.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThere is very little to complainThere is very little to complain about with Spago.

Appetizer and main entry was fantastic- however the desserts were surprisingly mediocre. Would return if they can improve the desserts. Expected more.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI reserved a table at OpenI reserved a table at Open Table and requested a table that is located in a nice area of the restaurant (I was tryin to impress a girl) but with a little privacy. Not only did they accommodated my requests, they even say us close to the fire place which made the evening even more romantic. Although we arrived late, the hostess was very polite and guided us to our table.
The service was very good. My date was very impressed with the attention she got from the servers. Our server is very knowledgable about all the ingredients and manner in which the food was prepared. He even suggested a good bottle of wine to complement our meal.
The food was certainly one of the best. The ingredients were perfect and Chef Wolfgang even stopped by.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNo pretense.. Just perfect.In my perfect dining world.. Every server would be as knowledgeable and direct as Margarite, every GM would have the passion and panache as Tracy and every Owner/Founder/Chef would have the vision and talent magnetism abilities as Wolfgang Puck. Spago is a brilliant sum of its parts. In a word: PERFECT.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Wow! Delicious food, terrific tips from the upbeat waiter, and a great room (the terrace). Spago is pricey, but here you truly do get what you pay for!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughters Birthday wasMy daughters Birthday was wonderful , the restaurant and the food was great..

The food and service both were first-rate, and the menu is sufficiently varied to meet all tastes. Highly recommended!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTop culinary art experience!Incredible food - always consistent and after renovation, a new twist to the menu - excellent and high quality. Vibrant scene!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSpa...GO!Always fantastic. amazing carbonara appetizer, followed by....Best short ribs ever. Top ten meal of a lifetime.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in the WolfgangExcellent in the Wolfgang tradition. Loved especially the Veal Tartare served in Marrow Bones and the Pasta dishes.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNice ExperienceSolid dining experience. Of course I expected a lot going in. We basically enjoyed everything ordered. Perhaps I ordered the wrong appetizer in that I ordered a dish of sashimi which was good, but perhaps not quite what I was in the mood for. The Vienerschnitzel was quite nice though (so you can guess if I ordered a dish like Vienerschnitzel, probably didn't pair that well with sashimi). Also we had some cocktails that were a spin on a negroni and those were quite good.
Would like to try the salmon pizza sometime.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI hadn't been there sinceI hadn't been there since the remodel, the place has a much more casual, sleeker look but still has the same old-fashioned service. The food & drinks were great just don't be in a hurry, service isn't slow per se it's just their relaxed style. It's not the kind of place that tries to turn tables so just sit & relax. Bills will be high but I wouldn't call it overpriced.
There's quite the bar scene but not my cup of tea, it looks like backstage of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" in the bar area. It's a real jerky crowd too, one woman blocked the aisle with her chair while she texted away, I kicked it as we walked past.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BOMB. I had the Chef'sThe BOMB. I had the Chef's 5 course tasting. Everything was divine.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMReception, service and foodReception, service and food never disappoint after numerous visits going back to the old Sunset Blvd Days.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Spago.

Very professional, and still extremely friendly and helpful.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNot just a meal... an experience!This was not just a meal, but an experience! We ordered the Chef's Choice 5 course tasting menu and loved every single morsel! The staff made us feel like celebrities and we will remember this night forever. Oh, and the food was spectacular!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways like Spago even ifAlways like Spago even if the food is less than spectacular.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was very busy becauseRestaurant was very busy because Chef Puck was in the house but all food was outstanding with the best ingredients, preparation, and presentation. It was also a great value for the price - dinner for two with dessert and drinks was only $200. TIP- ask the server about other 'classics' not on the menu.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA welcome update to a cherishedA welcome update to a cherished LA institution. Refreshed but still recognizable and familiar, they kept all that was good about the old Spago, and made it feel fresh and new again. Well done.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect evening!There were six in our party, ranging in age from 22-56. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The "first, second and third" courses were each amazing. The field greens were prepared at tableside (first), the lobster risotto melted in my mouth, and the veal chop was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Our waiter, who was extremely personable and knowledgeable, provided great suggestions and talked us into the desserts, which were light and tasty -- well worth the indulgence. The wine suggestions worked perfectly, as did the starting cocktails. We also had the great pleasure of Wolfgang Puck coming out to greet our table and shake hands! The night could not have been more perfect! I would recommend Spagos as The Place to Go in L.A.!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit since itsOur first visit since its renovation--food was great, kitchen view entertaining (as always), staff is excellent (but not stuffy) and we even got meet Mr. Puck himself! Apparently, when he is in town, he pops in to check on Spago and greets every table in the place! The wine list is MAMMOTH, but is also on-line so you can peruse before you get there & get some ideas. A little noisy for us middle-aged types, but wonderful....3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSpago a has always been aSpago a has always been a good experience. First time at the Beverly Hills location. We weren't disappointed. Great food and interesting people watching. Wolfgang Puck making rounds to every table. Will definitely return to try other menu choices. Memorable experience.
