Polo Lounge @ The Beverly Hills Hotel
Please be advised that the hotel is currently undergoing a kitchen renovation until July 31st. During this time, a limited menu featuring hot and cold items will be offered in the Polo Lounge and through In-Room Dining. There will also be some intermittent noise disruption in select areas of the hotel on weekdays between 8 am and 4 pm as a result of this renovation program.
Great space and ambiance. Service was initially poor but a new waiter mysteriously took over our table. And he was great. The crab cake appetizer was good but nothing exceptional. The $64 salmon was mediocre and the similarly priced filet was only marginally better. The wine list however was very strong. Overall The Polo Lounge is replete with a wonderful history but the kitchen is surprisingly weak. Value received was poor and will not be frequenting again. There are a host of truly great restaurants in LA. This is not one of them.
I had the lobster risotto followed by fillet Mignon; it was sublime! We were sat in the garden area which has a lovely atmosphere.
Prices have gotten a bit out of hand here and the service is a little spotty. Better for brunch/lunch than dinner for sure. “
Wonderful experience staff is VERY nice!! Definitely will be back!
Love the food, ambiance, and service
This is just an amazing place. The food and the staff are tremendous.
Polo Mgmt says jacket preferred yet at 9:30pm there’s guests wearing t-shirts and backwards hats. Either update your rules or follow them because it lowers the pristine of the Polo Lounge. Food was very good as usual.
Wonderful experience as always. The chocolate soufflé is a must-order!
We had the best time at the Polo Lounge for our anniversary. Douglas made our evening even more spectacular. Yes, the drinks are delicious, and the food too – don't forget about the soufflé! Save room!
Awesome as always!
Fantastic place and our server Eugene was brilliant. Did everything he could to help us! Made our honeymoon a memorable one! Thanks
Birthday for the Hubs
Amazing from start to finish. Excellent customer service and the food was fantastic, especially the chocolate soufflé! Finished off at the valet being stood next to Sharon and ozzy Osborne!
Lovely as always!
Awesome as always!!
Politics aside, I love The Beverly Hills Hotel. It is an amazing property and run quite well. Food was delicious, service could have been more attentive, but by no means bad. It was raining and the patio was closed, so, perhaps things were thrown off. We were in no hurry as we were hotel guests. Went to the room for room service deserts from the restaurant menu. Just quieter. The piano, while nice is a bit much. I would prefer it to be background music..... others may not agree.
Also amazing is the Fountain downstairs....
Our dining experience at the Polo Lounge exceeded our expectations. Every staff member we encountered was professional and friendly. It almost goes without saying, the atmosphere was perfectly classic. The live music set the tone for a relaxing meal. The food was simple, but prepared just right. It was the perfect way to spend our last evening in La La Land.
Service was poor. Food was average. Very disappointed ...
What else needs to be said? This is the place to be in LA - you can be as casual or dressed up as you want, the service is off the charts, the drinks are wonderful and the food is fabulous. Treated like a superstar. Live music was a plus. Absolutely fantastic.
As far as I'm concerned this has been and remains one of the nicest, yet laid-back, restaurants in the city.
Amazing service, food and ambiance!
We had a wonderful late lunch. Food was delicious, service was great. I’m pretty sure we saw Leah Michelle.
Great service and decent food. A bit on the expensive side for everyday dining. For a normal middle class person like me, I would only come here again for special occasions.
Finally got round to visiting this iconic venue after about 20 years.
It lived up to my expectations in regards to the decor and friendliness of the staff.
I was however a bit disappointed in the food,while it was nice I supposed I excepted to be blown away by it.
More over my party were more disappointed in the dress code, we always make an effort wherever we go and after reading the reviews on several websites we of course adhered to them.
Upon being seated we realised that we were surround by quite a few tables who were in just fitflops and tennis gear.
We have been coming to this wonderful hotel since our daughter was 2 ; We have stayed at The hotel as well as eaten in the Polo Lounge . The waiter we had this time was David Tucker, he was very personable, and quick to get what we wanted, A super waiter, we hope to have him next time we come. Our daughter just started Vet school and this was a treat for her as well as us. We love the ambiance of the polo lounge and can’t wait to return.
Amazingly beautiful day in the historic opulence of the Beverly Hills Hotel! We were seated in the polo lounge, in the patio section of course, drinking singapore slings with mezcal on the side. Actually they are called Smoking Fear and Loathings. Basically its a Singapore Sling with Mezcal and fruit slices as described in the novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by the titan Hunter S Thompson and film (the scene was shot in the Polo Lounge: Patio section) directed by the brilliant Terry Gilliam starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro with an added twist of it bubbling in a Tiki mug. I also had some delicious soup and other nibbles to go along with the out of this world drinks! We saw more than a few celebs who seemed relaxed and enjoyed hearing the biz talk and other eccentric musings from now back to yesteryear. Our server Sydney who made our time super special is also an excellent visual artist so we had much in common. All in all it exceeded my expectations and hope to return the next time I'm in town from NYC. Highly recommended for golden age Hollywood charm and contemporary comforts.
Great place, with "history". Ambiance and service are excellent. Food is good but not quite worthy of excellent when compared to other restaurants.
My favorite restaurant in the world! The risotto is to die for.
This is by far my most favorite restaurant I've ever been to. Inside the gorgeous Beverly Hills Hotel. There's not much else I can say. It was the best dining experience I've ever had. My husband and I got salmon and the house burger - both were tremendous. The dessert was beautiful (Pink Palace Alaska) - and our server was such a sweet man. He made our experience even better. We were sat next to a celebrity (kind of) so that was a little fun for dinner conversation. I cannot recommend this beautiful restaurant enough for fine dining.
Love this place
Always a great time at The Polo Lounge. Our party of six was seated outside for lunch, and enjoyed a mix of cocktails and beer and champagne before lunch. We got a mix of lobster salad, fish tacos, hamburgers and Mac Salad. Everything was perfect. And what made the afternoon even better was delightful service by Nancy. Attentive, professional, and a perfect sense of humor. An institution in Beverly Hills and well worth making a reservation for!
I love the polo lounge. The Macarthy salad is the best! We were celebrating our birthdays and the waiter brought us a delicious flower less chocolate cake on the house. We had the clam linguini and branzano. Both wonderful. Such an iconic place to eat. Always love it.
My daughters birthday lunch with her squad. Great fun
The Polo Lounge is the finest restaurant in the city when it comes to customer service. Whether you're a celebrity or just nobody, they treat you just the same. They all want you to have the finest dining experience possible. It's pricy but worth it at least once in your life
Good waiter and good food
Had a very remarkable experience. The staff were all so kind and helpful. The live music that was playing was so awesome. The food and dessert were very tasty. I think that everyone should experience dinning at Polo lounge at least once for a night to remember.
Amazing Atmosphere. Amazing service. Great entertainment.
