We went at nigth and it was very cold, they had the door open!! The food was delicious although they gave us the second courses without having finished the first one, everything a bit hurried to close and go home (I suppose).

The staff is amazing!!! Very attentive to our needs and customizing orders to our liking. We were there on Super Bowl Sunday so there weren’t a lot of patrons, and with the rain happening around LA, their gorgeous patio area was closed. Food was served promptly and very fresh (the burger and salmon notable standouts). The only thing that we did notice that was of concern was the automatic 15.5% Service Charge on the bill. Yes, it was listed on the menu that it would happen- and probably understand why being in a touristy area, but there should be other options for patrons to choose to show their gratitude for excellent service.

Excellent food in a location off the main sections of Rodeo Drive. The setting on a pedestrian only street is reminiscent of side streets in Europe. The service was outstanding and the staff engaging. The manager came by several times to ensure the food was to our satisfaction and that all our needs were met. The meals are expensive but very well prepared with a mouth watering presentation.

No brunch available on Sunday morning at 11:15 we were told despite the sign on the wall next to our table saying breakfast until 11:30. Extra bacon and avocado, at the waiters suggestion, were 10 a piece. For $150 lunch ( still water only in a bottle for 9 a pop) for three people? No thanks

My mom and I came here for lunch as to it was her first visit to Beverly Hills. Although costly, it was well worth it. We ordered the soup of the day, ceasar salad, grilled cheese, limanado and truffled sweet potato fries along with the flat spring water and berry sponge cake for dessert.
They also serve their bread with an oil which is a delicious way to build your palate and start your meal. Very delicious !
The grilled cheese was crisp and taste met up to perfection.
The soup of the day was a lobster bisque with shrimp. It was very flavorful.
The ceasar salad was good. Nothing which would differ from any other salad but good.
Limanado was a mint lemonade. Although refreshing, it could have been blended better and have a bit of sweetness in it. The water was just what I needed to hydrate. I'm starting to become a water snob so any crisp and fresh taste gets kudos !
The hits were the truffle fries. My goodness, I was extremely impressed. The price made it worth it as well. I loved every bite of them and cannot forget the taste of them. Highly recommend !
The sponge cake was extremely scrumptious. It was delicious and more so, I loved the layout of the desserts they present versus bringing a menu out.

I would recommend this place and giving it a 4/5 overall. 4 because it is a bit expensive but still well worth it. I'll be back !!!!

208 Rodeo is in a great location specially if you're a tourist in LA, and visiting Beverly Hills and surrounding areas. The food is really good, location as well, but probably the best thing is the amazing service provided. I highly recommend to visit 208 in your next stop in LA, you won't be disappointed!

So fixed price for a mediocre food, a waiter who rushed the food and bill on New Year’s eve, when the idea for booking was to Tiara at midnight. $800+ bill for a party of 6, wasted. The food was just simple, nothing special, the sauces on the gnocchi and the filet mignonette so scarce. Not worth it at all. It make me so angry to even think about this!

Have been staying across the street at the Beverly Wilshire and have been to 208 every day so far. First, amazing brunch, then amazing coffee, and now an even better dinner. Beyond the location at the steps of Via Rodeo, the food is absolutely delicious. Surf and Turf with lobster tail and truffled Tomahawk ribeye steak was to die for. And then top it all off with fantastic, friendly and entertaining service from Joey G!! A must dine place in Beverly Hills.

We were sat near the door to the bar and kitchen so there was a lot of traffic from staff. Most of our food was good my Cobb salad chicken was dry. I had to drink water to get it down. It just didn’t meet my expectations for a great salad it was just okay. The calamari was really good and the butternut quash soup was amazing. Wasn’t the relaxing lunch I wanted.

Went to 208 for the second time and was very upset. While the food is very good, the service leaves much to be desired. Our waiter when taking our orders suggested to my 12 year old (while I wasn't listening) to add lobster to her pasta. He did it in such a way that she thought it was included with the dish. I was not made aware until the dish arrived and I was confused since I hadn't seen lobster in the description. I then proceeded to hear this particular waiter doing the same thing to his other tables. Also, they tack on a 15.5% pooled service charge for the rest of the staff that IS NOT for the waiter! I did not see this anywhere on the menu. So needless to say, although the food was quite good I will not be returning to 208 due to their shady practices. Sad.

I have one issue with the overall experience at 208 Rodeo. Service. We got an 8:15 pm reservation for a party of 10. We spent a fortune on the food and wine and both were very good. Unfortunately as we were finishing up the evening around they gave us the rush to leave around 10 pm. When you spend over 1,000 on an evening with clients this is disappointing. We wanted an earlier reservation but all they had was 8:15. If they wanted to close at a fixed time then they should have notified us upon arrival or not offered a late reservation option.

208 Rodeo is one of our most favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. The food has always been excellent. And, the service very personable and professional. We have found it's a great place to bring friends and business associates who come in from out of town. It has a great outdoor dining area, and with being in the 'heart' of Beverly Hills it is great for people watching. Plus your apt to see a celebrity dining there in a casual unpretentious atmosphere. This time I had the Salmon, and my wife had the prommes frites. Our guests each had the Seafood salad. All was great! I highly recommend!

The review is really only harsh because the meal and drinks were way overpriced for the level of quality. That being said you're not paying just for the meal at this restaurant, it's more to be eating at a restaurant on Rodeo Drive. We weren't naive enough to not realize this fact but overall the meal and drinks (the was Whiskey Sour was terrible) substandard with very poor presentation.

The waiting staff did a good job and located us at a great table. They were always attentive. However, the gratuity was automatically included in the final bill (15.5% for our group size) and when this occurs it is the responsibility of the serving staff to mention this when presenting the bill. The only reason I picked this up is that I had been burnt by this in the past and was quick to notice it.

Ordered Gnocchi with Lobster for $39; it was chewy but flavorful; small portion not enough for 2 to share. When the waiter delivered the bill he did not indicate that a 15.5% service charge had already been added, so luckily my son looked at the bill over my shoulder and warned me after I was already adding another 20% tip; so it was very deceiving!

We are not going back

A great spot for people watching and delicious food. I came with my wife and son, and we sat outside which is an area that feels very much like a little piece of Europe. Just steps from the infamous Rodeo Drive and the Beverly Wilshire (remember Pretty Woman?) we very much enjoyed our time. If you drive, there is complimentary valet parking underneath. We are looking forward to going back early enough we can have brunch!

SPECTACULAR!!! Everything about this was on point... flavors, service, cocktails, every detail. We had filet n lobster, French onion soup, calamari and lobster gnocchi. In addition the patio ambiance was quaint and the live music was a treat. Lastly the restaurant was lovely about allowing our dog on the patio. A truly awesome experience...I highly highly recommend.
