    This was our second visit to SUR. Our first visit was back in April. It wasn't as hopping as last time we visited but it was the Labour Day weekend so I'm sure lots of people were out of town. Service was excellent and it was nice to see Peter as one of our servers again. I also got extremely lucky and was able to see Lisa, Ken & Jiggy. That was obviously the highlight of my night! Thanks again SUR for another night in reality heaven.

    I really wasn't sure what to expect but once we arrived my perspective immediately changed. The drinks were great the food was astonishingly good and the atmosphere was wonderful. Some of the stars from the show were there and were more than willing to take pictures. Overall, I was surprised by how good the food was. I figured people just went there because of the show but it's a great spot for food and drinks.

    My wife and I and our two teenage daughters visited here whilst on holiday from England as we knew about the place from the tv program Vanderpump Rules. What can I say. We had a great time here and decided that this type of place could not be found back in England due to the fantastic staff they have there. Our waiter absolutely made the experience for us, he was so nice, took an interest in u all and chatted to my daughters each time he came to the table. They both said he was the highlight of the holiday. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking for an informal dining experience in Hollywood.

    Absolutely mind blowing, will definitely return! The service was great, the food was delicious. From the bar we ordered a classic mohito, champagne and a Cosmo. All were tasty. For dinner we split the Greek salad, the seared ahi tuna entree and the sea bass. I have never tasted sea bass like that in my life. Was absolutely incredible. Our server was very accommodating and everyone seemed to be helping each other. Many people hit our table to assure our needs were taken care of. Can't wait to plan our next visit!

    I went with my mom for her birthday here. I primarily wanted to go here because of vanderpumprules. Our hostess was super nice and so was our server. Food came quickly, it wasn't amazing but still pretty good. I'm an Interior design student and my mom is a decorator so we enjoyed looking at the eclectic design of the restaurant, all the flowers and fluffy pillows! I was able to get a picture with Peter. Probably because he was super busy or stressed he barely even talked to us or asked us how are dinner was, the other staff though were all quick efficient and friendly! I would definelty give this place a try for a girls night

    We booked Sur weeks ago from Australia and loved it! Whilst we didn't see Lisa, Stassy, Jax or any of the TV crew we did meet Peter and he was very happy to meet and have a chat. Bouquets to Sammy too on the reservation desk who changed our table without question and was a credit to the restaurant. The food was terrific, the ambience was cool, the customers were having fun, the bar crowd was hot and the cocktails and staff were great. Good job to all involved...when next in LA we'll be back!

    We were looking forward to going to the Sur experience for a special occasion and drove far. We were disappointed in the experience. It was very cramped while eating, service was slow and server was not attentive. We definitely did not hear need to hear Jay Z cursing while we were waiting for our check. Food was good.

    Food was average, resturant was nice... Service was absolutely horrible. She never came back after taking our order. I had to ask another server to get us more water twice. Later on I had to go ask her to see the drink menu again she rolled her eyes like I was asking so much, after she dropped off the menu she never came back to see what I wanted to order so after 15 minutes of waiting I finally got up to go pay. I was there for over an hour and saw my server twice and once I had to go find her.

    Dined on 8/21/2014
    Have spent a bit of time visiting the Vanderpump restaurants at the request of my wife. Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills is a real delight. The food, service, ambience - all 5 stars. Sur on the other hand misses the mark. Located in W Hollywood, great expectations were set forward but soon crumbled with poor service, dirty stemware/table settings, stained tablecloths/menus/chairs, and an overall noisy poor evening. Immediately after dinner we headed on over to Pump for drinks which was a delight. In all, avoid Sur and head on over to Villa Blanca or Pump for a great evening.

    Went because others in my group are Vanderpump fans. Funky place with a cool, eclectic vibe but the menu choices were much the same as any other mid-range restaurant. Food was prepared well but I was expecting a more interesting menu given the celebrity factor. All in all, I would go back since the prices were not over the top and I really liked the atmosphere.

    We came from MN to have supper here. Made a reservation and decided to have a few drinks in the bar prior to supper. Waitresses were extremely friendly, helpful in even getting our picture taken with the owner, and not high priced appetizers. For supper we both had the chicken, masked potatoes, and rice. I didn't know rice could be so delicious! I would LOVE to dine here again as soon as we make the trip! Definately the 1st place I would go! Oh, and the portions were huge--my husband and I couldn't even eat all of our food!

    The restaurant is beautiful but that's about the only good thing to say. They hurried us so much that we could not enjoy the dining experience. The food came out in less than 5 mins so you know that means it was premade & sitting under a heat lamp. It was not a $300 dining experience so Never Again.

    It was my Husbands birthday and I wanted something trendy and special. Some friends had been and said the food was good so I booked the day before on the on-line booking. I had an instant reply and confirmation of booking. The decor was fantastic. very chic and intimate, felt completely at home. Not at all a pumping vibe like I was expecting. The food was really good, not too large portions. The Cobbler…OMG Devine. I would love to return here when I am next in LA.

    The ambiance was perfect. We went there because we have seen the television show but it was no surprise that no one recognizable from tv was there. The service was fine. The lobster bisque was fantastic. I was a little bummed that the grilled skirt steak came out way too overdone. (Well done and I asked for medium) I ordered that because if all the wonderful reviews it received. Maybe the cook was having an off night. Overall a fun experience.

    Before I get into the detail of my experience, I would like to say that the food here is absolutely amazing! I ordered the filet with brussel sprouts and snap peas, my friend ordered the salmon with mashed potatoes and spinach. Everything was cooked and seasoned to PERFECTION. The strawberry martinis were beyond the best I ever had, made with the very freshest berries. I can't stop thinking about this place! The decor is super sexy. The ambaince is pure luxury. Lisa Vanderpump was there and graciously took a picture with us before she started shooting for her show in the next room. The cast and crew were extremely friendly. Ken and Giggy were there, and even he allowed people to pet Giggy. I can't say enough positive things.

    We came to visit while we were in LA for a couple days, like most tourists because of the tv show, I watch it occasionally and so I dragged my husband to come check out this place we see on tv. It was pretty cool because they were actually filming something that night, but more important our food and service were very good.

    The pretty place has a hip and yet cozy vibe; the waitresses are the prettiest in town and very efficient too but the food leans on the average side. In a side note, or at least that evening, the bathrooms need improvement as well and I won't go into details there. As my teacher used to say: “could do better”.

    Sur Restaurant was for sure one of the best parts of our vacation. I had the Meatloaf dinner which was outstanding and the best Meatloaf I have ever had. My partner had the Skirt Steak which he said was the best ever. The staff was great. We loved everything on our plates. The decor of the restaurant was beautiful and peaceful as we sat outside. If we lived in Hollywood we would be regulars for sure. We will be back when we are out in Hollywood again. Thank you Lisa & Ken for the wonderful experience.
