    We pay the money to go out there, get good service, have a good time. But when you end up paying the top$ and on top of that come back home agonized, then might as well stay home and order in. Our reservation was at 8:45, but we ended up sitting around 9:40. Food was served at 11:00. Horrible, horrible experience. The most annoying fact is that, the servers and the managers think that is quite normal for a 5 star restaurant and if we want to eat there, that's a part of the deal. Save your money. Save your mood and find another place that values you as a customer.

    The food is always incredibly well presented and delicious. Usually the wait staff is beyond wonderful, so I would go with that. This time, our waiter lost interest halfway through our lunch, and I had to wave down people to get service. I think our originally good waiter got hung up on a demanding party, or just ignored us because we did not order lots of wine at lunch? Anyway, the second half of our meal was a series of waves to try to find our waiter. This is out of the norm, because usually the attention is exceptional. It was disappointing, because I was doing a special birthday lunch for a friend. The friend loved the food, but not the service, which was too bad. Also, staff confirmed then forgot candle on dessert. Boo hoo.

    On a visit from the East Coast. Had a glass of wine in the bar as service hadn't started in the dining room. Entertaining and engaging bartender! Service from carrying our drinks into the dining room to bringing over a sommelier to help with the extensive wine list and narrow our choices by preference and cost was first class. The food was terrific! Especially enjoyed the filet mignonette tartare. Capped the evening with a visit from Chef Wolfgang Puck who greeted everyone and seemed to enjoy picture taking with his guests. Very reasonable cost considering the location and level of food and service.

    So much hype , so disappointing ; our starters were excellent ; main course steak was over cooked and dry (ordered medium ) ; the service was absolutely awful , we waited 15 minutes until we saw a waiter - than very long waits again to see him subsequently ; to cap it all drinks from another table were mysteriously "transferred in" on our bill - the waiter apologized and corrected this "error " but left a really bad taste. We will not be back.

    Dining at Spago was world-class. The food was superb; no other description suffices. The wine list was more a tome in its extent and quality. The service was outstanding. Our server Erica was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and supremely helpful. I can't recommend Spago enough. Just go.

    I´ve been to the Spago in Beverly Hills last saturday for lunch. It was my first time there together with my parents. We loved it! And since we are from Austria, like Mr. Wolfgang Puck, it was very special for us! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! We look forward to go there again very very soon! Thank you Kindest regards Laura

    Spectacular service! The lady manager was so compassionate when the night falls, it was a bit cold in the terrace. She immediately brought my wife a shoulder scarf wrap to keep her warm. The busboy & waitress were attentive as well. The cosmo cocktail was the best in town. My wife loved it. Cons: They played safe on the food and nothing was "WOW!". I'd expect it be more innovative or something outside-the-box. The Jidori chicken was a disappointment; it was so basic. Then came with a major disappointment that they seemed not to bother to celebrate any occasions. It was my B-Day. All I got was a free candle on the top of the honey custard which I paid for. In a high caliber restaurant like Spago, it should be on the house as a good gesture.

    Yes, Spago has a great reputation for its menu, and that is well deserved. The dishes were creative and delicious--fresh ingredients, interesting variety. Our server was nice, but didn't seem quite up to the level of the food he was serving. Couldn't immediately answer a question or two about the menu. In addition, the night we were there, we were seated at a banquette in view of the kitchen, which is always fun. But there was a party of about 12 at a round table behind us in the dining room that was using the opportunity to have more of a cocktail reception than a multi-course meal. They were standing and mingling between every course, which was distracting. We're New York diners, and found this odd and distracting.

    Wiener schnitzel excellent, heirloom tomato mini salad -tasteless, chocolate dessert très ordinaire. Service felt, really wasn't, rushed. Not a warm, fun, engaging experience. They could see it was my friends BDay and didn't say or do a thing. My $35. Glass of Chardonnay, which was supposed to be buttery, wasn't.

    GreatVIP
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We tried the eight course with sommelier selected wines. Started off very small and ended a little heavy. Disappointed an ale was slipped in instead of a wine. Service was all very nice up until the end when it seemed we got forgotten. One request to the manager and all was better. They added an extra wine tasting and a box of small chocolates which actually might be what they give everyone. Check the California tasting menu as the details are too long to capture. If it is a special occasion let them know ahead of time and they seem to want to all come by and congratulate

    Still got it after all these years. Fab food, great ambience and a variety of seating areas. We were there for a Wednesday lunch and were welcomed by Wolfie himself! Who also spent time chatting up Sydney Poitier who was seated at the table next to us! Great experience except for the 1/2 hour wait even with a reservation. However, with a touch of class they did provide us with a glass of champagne on the house.

    The food was superb; however, the timing was a bit off. The wine we'd ordered for dinner arrived while we were still drinking our cocktails, and then there was quite a long wait before our appetizers arrived. Overall, though, it was a wonderful (but very expensive) meal. It is a great place for a special occasion.

    Spago is about as close to perfection as it gets. The ambience places dinners in a uniquely quixotic setting that sets the stage for the ultimate dining experience. Each food course made our insides sing, and the wines recommended by our server (who was more like a sommelier) were perfection in pairing. We loved the vibe, and everything about this place.
