    I didn't go here for a long time thinking it'd be overpriced and mediocre cuz its on a reality show and they don't have to try hard. I was way wrong. Though I had more and enjoyed it all.... IF YOU GO THERE JUST FOR THE SPA COOLER COCKTAIL AND THE CHOPPED ARUGLA SALAD YOU'LL LEAVE VERY HAPPY! For any warm day here in LA.... they are the perfect combination. They're both in the top 3 best salad and cocktail I've ever had! And of course the decor is tres chic just like Lisa!

    I live in New York and went to LA on vacation. I went to SUR mostly to just visit the restaurant because of the show Vanderpump Rules and because of Lisa Vanderpump. The decoration is amazing, it's a beautiful restaurant with a wonderful night life bar feel. The food is not out of this world but it's eatable.

    The table behind us ( my chair bumped up to another chair at their table) was a group of 6-8. They were celebrating a birthday and the person sitting directly behind me was hollering at the top of her lungs the whole time. The profanities and the F bombs were over the top. All I wanted to do was leave. It was annoying. The waitress said the had already asked them to calm down but obviously that didn't work. Once we were don they offered to move us to another seat.....but we were done. Couldn't stand one more minute of the noise.

    It was everything and more what I thought Sur's would be. Food was great, the service treated us wonderful. It was really pretty at night. We got there a little before dark , they lite candles all around us, rose petals on table with fresh flowers. When we left the lighting of Sur's was so pretty. We sat out on covered patio. After sun went down they tied back curtains to street which was neat. Everyone was so friendly . I highly recommend this restaurant .

    An amazing dining experience in a gorgeous setting. My party of 5 enjoyed the best calamari with chipotle mayonnaise to start, followed by steak, chicken piccata, roasted chicken, pork chops and bacon wrapped meatloaf (I'll be copying this at home) along with a wonderful selection of sides. Didn't order desserts as we opted for chocolate martinis instead. Service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return again when back in town!

    Sur had a super romantic feel to it and is perfect for date night. Food was ok, nothing special. Very friendly waitress and the manager Peter was also super friendly. The bartenders were kinda douchy. I would of gave 4 stars but the food was a disappointment. It was pretty much pasta with jarred sauce and my friends pasta had so many olives in it that's all she could taste. I would go here again but would def order something different.

    I enjoyed my experience overall, however my friends and I have travelled from England and we felt rushed throughout our evening. I didn't particularly like the service as we were left with just water to drink and had to call someone over to order. The food was lovely, although our server began clearing our table before we had all finished our meal. We felt rushed and did not stay to have a drink at the bar due to the service we had received during dinner and there was no attempt at a conversation of friendly chit chat by staff.

    What a terrific experience we had at Sur Restaurant. We are from Florida and have had bisque's often, but none could compare to the lobster bisque at Sur. My husband raved about the spinach soup as well. Our entire dinner was excellent and affordable. The restaurant was beautiful and elegant. Upon our arrival, our rental car was hit in the public parking lot behind Sur. Not being from California, we were lost in regards to the laws and how to handle it. The staff took it upon themselves to comfort and aid us in our situation. They called the police, gave names for witnesses and kept my company while my husband made frequent trips outside to look for the police's arrival. Lovely restaurant and top notch staff.

    We went more out of curiosity than anything after having read mixed reviews, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. NO cast members were working on Friday night when we went for Dinner, but that was fine as the Server we had was lovely and the Food was delicious! Wasn't as pricey either as we had expected it to be. Overall we were delighted with the service, there is no pretence with this restaurant, the atmosphere service and feel is all great and honestly down to earth. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends!

    Of course we went here to try it because of the show (we are from Atlanta), but this place exceeded all of our expectations. Reasonably priced, large portions, great cocktails and the people from the show really work there. This place is a fun spot to try on a trip to LA! My husband was even impressed even though he did not want to go and really wanted to not like it. Thanks for a fun experience!

    If you want to go to see an abundance of video crew and equipment, this is the place for you. It's a scene that's overpriced but what do you expect from an entrepreneur who has made herself and other Real Housevives of BH "famous". Kudos to her and her reality staff. The food was acceptable but why go eat here when there are so many other excellent restaurants in WEHO? The interior is looking a bit shabby and the waitstaff look like they should being doing a few more push-ups between serving customers. Their 6-pack abs are a bit shabby, too!! Can't have it all.

    We went to Sur restaurant for my Birthday with no expectation of "wow" food or drinks. I only went because I am an avid Bravo watcher and thought it would be a fun outing with my husband while we were in LA for the weekend. However, we were pleasantly SUR-prised with excellent service and very good food. Additionally, the drinks were very well made! I would recommend it to anyone in town as a fun place, especially for apps and drinks. The ambiance was amazing as well, very lush, romantic, sexy.

    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.

    There was a short wait to get our table but the hostess was pretty entertaining about it, food was tasty not overly amazing but what you would expect for the price. The best part was meeting the manager from the show, main reason we went was the show, wish there were more staff that still worked there but he was helpful and nice. Overall I'd definitely go back for the food/vibe, was a really fun night.

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.

    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.

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 was looking forward to try out Sur as I watch the show & see Lisa Vanderpump as a business owner who expects & promotes high standards & passion for customer service, I was expecting just that. I have no real complaints about the service although it came across as a bit disorganised, on a couple of occasions people came into the restaurant wanting a table to dine but there was no one at front of house to greet them, we also had a number of different wait staff to our table, Peter was our assigned waiter for the evening, he was also manager & other things took his attention at times. Good food. Had to ask for our water glasses to be filled & ask for cutlery, there's definitely room for improvement & a need for more restroom facilities.
