We've dined at Circa 55 several times. This was the first time to sit outside, near the pool. Very nice setting. My wife ordered a pizza and loved it. Fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection. I had one if the best cobb salads ever. Each ingredient was carefully chopped or cut and the blue cheese dressing was exceptional.

This was the perfect place to celebrate my mother’s 75th birthday. Our servers were attentive and the facility was clean and nicely maintained and decorated. The food was varied and fresh and very good quality. We will be back again and again!

Wonderful experience, it was a good crowd but it didn't take long to seat us since we had a reservation, it's easy to reserve using Open Table. They've got everything there from the standard eggs, bacon, potatoes, chicken turkey patties, waffles, omelets, oatmeal, toast, bagels, crab legs, chicken and beef tacos, cranberry, orange, and pineapple juice, fish and chips, cereals, endless mimosas, and an incredible array of sweets including sticky buns with some heavenly sweet cream that is to die for! The waiters were hustling around and were attentive. The ambiance is first class there at the Beverly Hilton. We'll definitely be back! Put them in your foodie rotation...

This was great Sunday brunch option to bring my mom who was visiting from out of town. There were plenty of food options for those with different tastes, however you should definitely come with an appetite.

Everything was great as far as the food and the location goes —we have been here several times for brunch and always have a great time —unfortunately this time our service was a little lacking but they did try to make up for it at the end (it was quite a full house!) We will definitely go back because even with the slow service a great meal and good time was had by all!

Everything is wonderful here from the meatballs with croutons appetizer and the calamari/shrimp appetizer to the NY steak with new potatoes and broccoli and my wife had the lamb chops which she devoured. Even our 18 year old daughter loved her spaghetti. Then my wife absolutely gushed over the panna cotta so much so that she would've taken another one to go if she could've but they put that particular dessert in martini glasses so no go on that idea. I thought something was wrong with her as she kept muttering "I love this!". Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant as well, definitely include this spot in your foodie rotation!

The food and service were excellent. I was under the impression when making the reservation that I would be able to sit outside, however, upon arrival there were no outside tables available. Great brunch spot.

Boring and at the same time discriminating service. We've been at other Hilton hotels - much better. You would expect from Beverly Hills location at least meet min. standards of other Hilton Hotels. Unfortunately that was not a case.

The buffet was lovely to look at and without exception, delicious. The seafood options tend to go quickly, however, so I would start there....

A great place for brunch! I got a voucher through Travel Zoo for bottomless mimosa Sunday brunch for two for $65 + tax and tip, which was an incredible deal. There was a huge selection of foods at the buffet ranging from breakfast classics to savory lunch options. We especially loved the seafood platter that was stacked with shrimp, oysters, scallops, and crab. The servers were very attentive and even though they were busy, always came by to refill our glasses. The voucher technically limited us to a 90 min brunch, but we stayed about 30 min over and none of the staff were pushy about making us leave. We had an amazing time and I highly recommend making a reservation for this place during brunch time.

They need to change the check in process people that has reservation, which we do and the people that doesn’t stood in the same line, that’s why it took awhile before we can sit down. I reserved for an outside sitting , I didn’t get that again people that doesn’t have reservation probably got the tables. Overall everything was good the food, especially the seafood and of course the unlimited mimosa. Keep in mind this is a 90 min. Brunch and $7 dollars parking w/ validation from Circa 55.

It was a casual breakfast after our fun eventful evening for the National Charity League Los Angeles Founder Chapter Coronet Debutante Ball! The eggs Benedict was delightful. Miguel, our server was attentive. Thank you for a nice morning.

Ate here on the first night of our stay at Beverly Hilton and although we loved the Hotel we were slightly underwhelmed by Circa 55 and were glad we ate elsewhere after that. For us it just lacked any wow factor.

The food and ambienance are always on point. The desserts are epic. Been to this brunch several times and we usually love it. This time, not so much. The service was horrible. We sat and after several minutes, we had to ask for water and oj. Not just once, multiple times. The server passed us several times with a bewildered look on his face. Major disappointment. I think we are done with Circa 55.

Quiet Monday night dining. Staff was attentive and food was very good. Dress was casual to business and the experience was very positive. Circa 55 reflected its website promotion. Perhaps on one of its special event or special menu evenings, I will seek it out again.

Not crowded and the view is of the hotel pool and palm trees....very pretty. Food is good, drinks were very good and service was also pretty good. My main complaint is the price. We are from Ny so we are used to pricey restaurants....but the food needs to be WAY BETTER to justify the ridiculous prices for what is basically good hotel coffee shop fare.
