Californian
Aptly named for the year in which the hotel was founded, CIRCA 55 pays tribute to its mid-century roots in both atmosphere and cuisine. Offering pool views with sweeping walls of glass and chic décor, CIRCA 55 reinterprets California classics with a menu that is market-fresh and 95% locally sourced. Whether you’re seeking an upscale dinner for two or a casual meal overlooking the pool, the enduring glamour of The Beverly Hilton is never far away at CIRCA 55.

I would recommend this place because of the food and values, not for the service.

This is the perfect place to have a brunch sitting outside by the pool in the iconic Beverly Hilton as good as it gets. The food was great and the service was excellent.

They didn’t come to our table much... took them forever to refill our mimosas but the food made up for any service they were lacking and it isn’t offensive for the price you pay. Wish we could have sat outside, but otherwise, it was great

The Sunday Brunch at Circa 55 in The Beverly Hilton was wonderful! Huge selection of food, from breakfast, to salads, hot selections, a cold seafood bar and splendid desserts! It was a little rainy that morning, but usually the grill is going out by the pool for grilled burgers, etc. And best of all, the free flowing mimosas to top it all off! We also had the regular breakfast buffet one day, which was excellent and we were able to sit out by the pool and enjoy the beautiful California breeze! I love The Beverly Hilton and can't wait to stay there again! However, if you are staying somewhere else, or live in Beverly Hills, it's worth a trip to Circa 55, morning, noon or night!

I had a kale and fennel salad with fresh veggies and grilled chicken. It was delicious. The food is fresh and is served in a beautiful outdoor setting. You can eat poolside or in the mid century inspired inside dining area. The wait staff is friendly and attentive.

I dined at this restaurant twice during my stay and each time the service was not good. Even when the restaurant was not busy it would take forever to order, get refills on water, etc. not what I expected given the reputation of the hotel.

We arrived a bit before 11 AM for our reservation, and were told the restaurant wasn’t having brunch and was closing at 11 due to a conference. However we had made a reservation online, and Circa 55 had text confirmed it was still on days earlier. We were told it would be open then and we’re blindsided when we arrived. They offered us free breakfast as it was finishing up, but the kitchen was half closed by the time we arrived and everything good was already taken away. Really ruined my day.

I never do this...but this was bad.... Part of the draw was the Easter egg hunt. They let us know it would start at 12:15 but they would come around and let everyone know when to send their children outside. The 2 little girls (5 and 6 years old) were very excited and had their baskets ready. When they came around to let us know it was about to begin, we made our way outside to the pool area very quickly. When we got there, the staff around the pool casually told us after we weren't finding any eggs anywhere that we were too late as a couple families went early and got all the eggs for their kids. We saw a handful of families standing around with huge basket of eggs. This was very disappointing and the kids were very sad. A dad saw how sad the kids were and went around finding hardboiled eggs in decorations and tried to plant eggs in front of our kids and encourage them to find the hardboiled eggs as a default. We consoled the kids and tried to distract with icecream at the kids gelato station. When they ordered the chocolate, the server let us know it was made with real coffee and was actually mocha? So we let the kids know to choose another flavor?? When we told the manager, she was annoyed and could care less. We asked if we could at least have the girls not be charged. This seemed to be a huge inconvenience to them, but after we stayed firm about what had happened she credited just one of the children but told us she had credited two. We pointed this out, she was annoyed again and it was a complete production. Total bummer. Sad to see on many levels from the hotel and from the families that took ALL the eggs prior to the hunt.

Had a great time. Was very nice to spend a sunny sunday brunch poolside with delicious food. The quality was excellent for a buffet. I am a raw seafood junkie, they had king crab, scallops, shrimp, and oysters! Frank was our server and he was very professional and kind, and his fantastic customer service was the icing on the cake for our first experience here. I would definitely come again!

I've been underwhelmed here in the past. Why, for example, do they insist on covering their steaks in heavy sauces? But I really liked my vegetarian pizza, and my companion's ravioli were excellent. The heaters made if comfortable to eat out near the pool and the service was attentive. They also offered a very tasty mocktail, not always easy to find.

We were celebrating 2 birthdays. Coming in the front desk didn’t have a table ready so we waited for the rest of our party. Once they came in we informed the front desk that we all have arrived but it was a new person at the podium. She seemed lost and sat another party who came in after us instead which was odd and didn’t understand why we did a reservation in the first place. Once we finally sat after 15-20 mins after our table service was great! Server and the people pouring the sparkling wine were very attentive and the food was delicious! All said and done I would visit again

The food is few to choose from. The service is so sad they we were busing our own dirty plates of our table because the server only came to our table once which is when we sat down then nowhere to be found of any server. We finally went to the front receptionist area to made a complaint then 15 min later someone came to take some dirty plates after that no one came back again. To add salt to this horrible experience the restaurant added $55.00 dollars to my charge without my authorization. I called them to resolve the issue and no one call me back. Very poor
