Everything was fabulous- beautiful patio seating that was very private. Live music, delicious food and overall great old Hollywood feel. Highly recommend their desserts and cocktails.

Awesome as usual! (I travelled in from Washington DC) Food and service is the best! Sasha was an impeccably professional and gracious hostess. She helped me handle an unfortunately rude couple next to me awaiting a table. Reaz my server was utterly perfect as well as delightful in personality. Will always return!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
