Circa55 was amazing. So many options for brunch and the champagne never stopped coming! Mimosas were made with La Marca which was also a plus!

Service was a little slow this time. The quality of the food has gone down a little.
The seafood selection is pretty good.

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.

On this particular day the restaurant was very quiet not too many guests. The food served was very good and service is excellent. The cook at the omelette station is skilled and very friendly. We have a great time.

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.

Inside the Beverly Hilton this restaurant is pool View. It's a nice spot to grab a drink or a bite to eat. But with so many places in Beverly Hills that are better it isn't where I would say just coming unless you happen to be staying here.

Great Easter brunch buffet, had reservation, place wasn't too crowded and we enjoyed a leisurely meal with complimentary sparking wine. Spent about two and a half hours there. Nice that they didn't rush you. Parking was validated with brunch purchase. We'll be back again.

Review would have been higher but we had to wait more than 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. We went for the Sunday brunch which included a seafood station, but the restaurant was very slow to keep the selections stocked and available.

I went twice for this month. First branch was nice because we were abeles to get outside table right the way(15min wait) but 2nd Sunday was so busy we have to wait 30min to 45min even we had reservations.

For 4 star hotel in BH wouldn't not deserve this...

My history with Open Table indicates that I only post if it's positive but I had an awful experience that I'm still embarrassed about. We asked for a table outside and 30 minutes into our meal were abruptly moved by Manager Marisol to another table. We were moved for another guest that apparently had more money and was a permanent resident of the hotel. We weren't asked to move. We were moved because that was someone's "table". I honestly have never felt so discriminated. I'll never go back. Mateo the other manager and our server, Kristen, were amazing but the audacity of making one guest better than another was apparent to everyone. We were moved because someone had more money and pull than us. Living in Los Angeles I've never had that happen to me and although Mateo comped our meal I still can't believe we were moved in the middle of our meal because someone wanted our table. It was super crazy!! My meal cost the same! Yes I had a Travelzoo voucher but it's only a $10 discount. I tried this place but will never come back because of the experience. Btw: if you do go try to stay away from table 100. That's the table reserved for "Mr I get what I want".
