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.

Honestly not much for the money. The breakfast eggs to order and smoked salmon and bacon are fine but the hot items are absolutely awful. Shredded chicken for fajitas was all dried out, some other thing of chopped chicken was like it came out of a can, they had over cooked brisket in small slices in a lousy brown sauce and fries. The desserts were limited and no cakes but cake pops and Rice Krispie squares domino size. With a coupon it was over $100 with tax an tip. $79 coupon. Plus you’ve got to pay for parking and there’s no street parking. Shame....

Everyone was super accommodating, polite, and attentive. No one was rude or pretentious, which is nice considering the Beverly Hills location. The poolside dining was incredibly relaxing.

We dined on Jan. 1st in the evening. Not busy at all. The waiter put our entire order in at the same time and all our food came at the time.10 mins later. We could not even enjoy our drinks. Salads and entrees covered the table. It was absurd. We had wine with dinner and we had to pour our own wine. For The Beverly Hilton we were surprised at the very poor and inattentive service.

New Year’s Eve dinner event was an absolute joke! The cheapest champagne that was flat, and mediocre buffet, all for the value price of $200.

I can't give a proper review since it was a last minute Christmas dinner. They had a buffet, which was a little pricey, but was very good. Wine prices were not too expensive. Service was nice as well. Very attentive.

The Executive chef chose not to serve dressing or a gravy this Christmas, only very mundane mashed potatoes and roast turkey. The desserts were so different from a month before, tarts were tasteless. The sushi station was placed outside close to an outside heater which was a strange location as I have always seen it inside. Turkey station was next to sushi, hot next to cold? Some fish was curling at ends but it was constantly being prepared so always a selection.
Other buffet items were similar to Thanksgiving. Service was nice. Been here 10+ times, some buffets and some dinners. I heard a number of people asking for dressing and gravy. May not be important to some but it is a staple of a Christmas feast for turkey eaters. Myself, I do not eat meat but others at the table and surrounding us were. The items were not replaced by any creative option, just removed.

Beautifully decorated in a minimalist style (we ate here on Christmas Eve), the restaurant ambiance was intimate. The staff were professional, not intrusive yet attentive to our every need. The food was delicious, cooked to perfection and not overly sauced or salted. This was such a fantastic experience, I am bringing my daughter back again in February for her 15th birthday.

Went for Thanksgiving Buffet dinner. Food was so-so, not the best, not the worst. Service was slow. The restaurant was not well organized for such a large buffet, and it showed. They began running out of items at 8 PM. There was apparently an outdoor station as well, but had no indications of such (like signs). Overall, a mediocre experience. We will look for another venue next year.

This restaurants is located in the historic Beverly Hilton. It was really great actually visiting the place. The service and ambiance are great. We went there for brunch. The food was plentiful and fresh. The waiter kept refilling our glasses with Proseco. The BBQ ribs were really tasty. I especially enjoyed the desserts. They had so many varieties of finger desserts and each tasted soo good. Overall we had a good experience.

I booked a reservation at the bar for a business meeting. The reservation was scheduled for 2-hours, so after our server took our order (2 iced teas), we mentioned we were waiting for one other person and would order food then. Our server never came back to take our order; she did, however, refill our iced teas once - about 20/30 minutes after we had been seated. She never asked if we wanted to order anything or if we needed anything further.

We decided we would move on, and I waited behind to pay for our tab. I mentioned earlier that we ordered two iced teas. I was given the correct bill, I gave the server my credit card, and I received a bill that included avocado toast and a drink (I do not recall what the drink was) for $30. Keep in mind; we never got the opportunity to order food! When I told the server this wasn't my bill and asked the server if my card was swiped, she assured me it wasn't; however, I come to find out that my credit card was in fact charged $30 for the avocado toast and drink that were not mine in addition to my $13.14 total for two iced teas. The service was exceptionally poor for such a high-end venue. I, unfortunately, have another reservation for a business meeting, however, I would not choose this restaurant willingly again.

Veery nice restaurant for a quiet evening. Everyone was extremely nice and attentive. Being the first time experience I wanted a quiet setting. Next time I will chose to sit outside as it seemed to be very popular and quiet as well. I will be back in a month and looking for to the dining experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Horrible experience. Do not go for Sunday Brunch. Food was subpar, so far from fresh, and little to zero savory variety. Absolutely not worth the money for Sunday brunch as there are a million places elsewhere.

The food was great but not so much the service. We sat at our table for a while and had to flag a waiter to get service even though it was not very busy. Then at the end , we had to request the bill a few times before they brought it over to us.
