We enjoyed a lovely evening here; can't complain. Our server, Gerard, was a personable pro. Our food, in particular the Mongolian Lamb, was well prepared and tasty. But there are two factors that would make me hesitate to tell friends it's a must-go.

The first is that the food doesn't quite match the prices. People say, "Well, it's Beverly Hills. You've gotta expect that." Nah. We've dined all over the world, including most of the top spots is Beverly Hills. For those prices, we think the food should wow. It's good but not great.

Second, the decision to renovate a corner restaurant with both street sides open to the air may prove problematic in the long run. When a cool breeze kicks up, cross-currents can chill the whole venue. While we were eating, the hostess donned a long coat. The owner was making table rounds wearing a leather jacket. Staff were latching down the awnings around the sidewalk tables, blocking views to the outside.

These are cavils, not deal breakers. Many diners rave the food, and don't find the prices out of line. On a warm night, the design might prove enticing. But as pleasant an evening as we had, I doubt we'll return any time soon. From downtown to Santa Monica, there are so many options more appealing to us.

A+! Crustacean was incredible. From the ambiance, to the greeting from the host, to the food, service and dining experience, we were given the best experience! The food was high quality and creative, the service was highly attentive but warm, and not pushy. The ambiance was upscale and relaxing and the cocktails were outstanding. Will be back soon!

Enjoyed the food and glad they kept the see-through aquarium floor. Service needs improvement. For an expensive establishment, the service is so so. The 2 different hosts that we interacted with are not friendly at all. We started at the bar area because our table was not ready yet. When we asked if we can be seated, the first thing the host said was yes, but you need to settle your bar tab first. Hello - we know that and we even gave a nice tip. Just a suggestion so not to annoy other patrons - if they forgot to settle the bar tab, add it to their regular lunch or dinner bill. We love the food, but the service needs major improvement or you will not get the Michelin Star you are aspiring for.

ベトナム風の良い雰囲気が、内外装を変え安っぽいクラブみたいになってしまいました。値段は上がり、サービスは過剰になりました。最大の問題は、このレストラン唯一のダンジネスクラブがメニューから追いやられ、普通のアメリカ料理がメインになってしまったことです。そして新しいメニューは美味しいとは言えない。
今もダンジネスクラブは1種類残っていますが、かつてなような味と大きさは保てていません。
さらに、2代目・目立ちたがりオーナーの似顔絵の入ったエプロンの着用を強要されます。
2代目になってダメになる典型を感じられます。
どうか全てを元に戻して欲しいです。

It’s been a while that we went back since the renovation. The new remodeled space has completely lost its original charm. It was my favorite restaurant, but it’s gone down hills...

The space was open to a noisy, ugly street corner, and the restaurant struggled to find us a space away from the traffic/noise/sun on the face. Despite several tries to find a reasonable table, the music was blasting on top of our table. I suppose it’s the restaurant strategy to combat noise?! I’ve provided feedback to the waiter, but no improvement.

The new menu has nothing to write home about, in fact, it’s a complete rip-off! The potions are so tiny, it provides no value. Even it’s famous crab and garlic noodles had gone down in portion significantly.

It was only about 60-70% full on a Sunday night, which I’ve never seen in the last 20 years being a patron of the place. It’s always packed no matter when we go. I guess I am not the only one feeling utterly disappointed. Gone with one excellent landmark LA restaurant. The management probably only cares about milking the brand, instead of providing value. Very sad.

I have been wanting to try this place for years. I finally booked a reservation for a birthday. Had a reservation at 8:45 but hit there fairly early at 8:05pm. Sat at the bar and ordered one round. Closed the tab before we hit seated. Got seated at our table at 8:50. Hosts, hostesses, bartenders had a very cold, uppity vibe. As soon as we sat, one of the snooty bartender named Dave walks up with an accusing tone. “Excuse me miss, but when we opened the receipt, the customer copy was missing that would have the signature”. The tone and word choice took me by surprise. So my mood changed from enjoying my chat during the birthday celebration to a bit of shock since I signed the receipt and left it in the little leather receipt folder with all the copies and the pen. I know this because everyone I was with saw me sign and hand it over. And I definitely didn’t have any type of receipt in my purse. So after I simply said, oh that’s weird but I did sign and left all the copies in there. He just had this face of “yeah right” and everyone noticed. I was a bit embarrassed since I felt accused of either walking away without paying or lying about not taking the copy as if I didn’t want to pay. I’m not sure why he stereotyped me to do something like that at such an establishment but no one deserves that unless it is a fact. Anyway, our server Nelson turned everything around with his humble, friendly, happy service. If not for him, the whole vibe and night would’ve been just straight pretentious. At this point, I can’t even remember anything spectacular about the food and perhaps because the night was already ruined by such a rude accusation. Good thing I took pics to remember what I even ordered. There are far too many restaurants in Beverly Hills to have one bully bartender in your establishment. Nelson is definitely a five star server but overall rating factors in service and experience overall. Disappointing, Dave.

We had had dinner at Crustacean in San Francisco before. We had the signature Dungebess crab as we had it in San Francisco, but the taste was so bland. We were so disappointed that the crab was not good as we’ve expected. The service was amazing, but the crab was overpriced for that quality.

This is one of those menus where you could close your eyes and point at several items. order them and always be delighted with thee choice. The appetizers are spectacular....don't miss the "cigars". My favorite entree is the whole crab, which they will remove from the shell then present it with the completely shelled meat placed into the hollowed out shell. Then there is the garlic noodles.....not to be missed.....my wife and I like them so much we usually take an order or two home. Service is impeccable yet friendly...elegant without any stuffiness. We keep going back for more. Love this restaurant.
