Viviane at the Avalon Beverly Hills Hotel
We are open 7 days a week, serving Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, as well as Brunch on weekends. Join us all summer long for our Sunday brunch pool party from noon to 5pm.
Valentine’s Day at Vivían was another terrific experience (we ate here last year, too!). Nestled to the left side of the lobby of the Avalon hotel, a converted ‘50’s apartment building, the restaurant keeps the vintage look and feel but the menu is su courant.
the prix fixed menu was good value on this night, four courses for $75, with enough choices to please most tastes.
The truffled tortellini were delectable and my wife raved about the ratatouille appetizer.
Our halibut in cauliflower sauce was a hit, and vanilla crepe with passion fruit dessert crowned the meal.
As always… Fantastic!
Food was good and nice setting. Absolutely no flexibility in menu. Asked for two changes and both times “no” we do not do that. Disappointing. When you spend a couple hundred dollars for dinner surely there can be a little flexibility pairings or a substitute Would not make adaptations to menu at all. Server completely rushed us. Meal came out when o pay half through our app even though I said we were no rush when she repeatedly came by to take our order. Food deliver knew I was not happy and server immediately turn on the niceties - but totally fake nice
It was fine. It was pretty empty, but service was still a bit slow, starting at the valet and continuing into food service. The food was pretty good, the short rib was a standout. The drinks were also pretty good, but very expensive. Not much atmosphere. Probably a good option if you're staying at the hotel, otherwise maybe a little pricey for the total experience.
Ate lunch at Viviane during dineLA. The food was amazing and the portions were generous. The restaurant is small, when it filled up it was really noisy. There is lovely outdoor seating by the pool but unfortunately it was raining. Maybe next time, I look forward to trying the regular menu.
As always... great.
As always, the staff at Viviane was courteous and gracious, and went out of their way to make my birthday celebration with my family very special. This is by far my favorite restaurant in the LA area, and, as an added bonus, they are the first in the region to carry Bob Dylan‘s signature rye whiskey “Heaven’s Door.“
The food was really nice, the place is not happening, but if you look for relaxing environment and good food you will not be disappointed.
Lovely ambiance. Phenomenal food. The service was prompt and careful. We had the pleasure of visiting with Chef Baxter— great host. Talented chef.
Food was delicious. Dishes are small though so order extra. Enjoyed sitting out by the pool.
The food was delicious, the service was attentive and pleasant, and the atmosphere was classy and chill!
Wonderful food, fair prices, beautiful outdoor ambience, excellent service.
The food was decent and everyone enjoyed their meals. The fruit was good. It is a very relaxing place to have a meal and talk.
Great, food, great service, great environment! It's a wonderful restaurant to go to with family, friends and business.
Great ambiance and convenient valet parking. Good food and service.
Everything was excellent. Beautiful retro poolside vibes. The host team was incredibly professional, nice, and accommodating especially for the craziness of Mother’s Day!
First time here I’ll be back
Ambience was great
Poolside nicely lit
Great romantic spot
Delicious food and excellent service! Thank you!
I've been now for Happy Hour, brunch, and dinner, and every time i've been the food has been amazing and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend. It's small and has a kind of vibe like Palm Springs.. very cool place!
Easter, nice dining experience
Aucune ambiance et cuisine banale pour un prix impayable !
Broad menu. Wonderful food in a cozy, nostalgic venue reminiscent of Beverly Hills’ Golden Age. Staff was very attentive. It was easy to carry on a private conversation and the courses were times appropriately for an intimate couple’s dining experience.
I have always loved the Avalon, it was so lovely to bring my mom. She loved it too despite the rain... it’s so charming, the service is always fantastic and the food is perfect.
I have been to Viviane several times. Each time is better and better and more perfect. I highly recommend that one goes for a most enjoyable dining experience with friends, family, co workers, out of town ers:) sure bet!!!!
Cool little poolside spot, but honestly, nothing terribly special. I’d return, but only if I’m staying at the hotel or in the neighborhood.
Great job for Valentines Day
Valentine’s Day dinner was superb in every respect. Good value, too, even with a prix fixe menu.
Creative, fresh-tasting ingredients.
We’ve been here for brunch and enjoyed it as well
Great food has the grilled octopus with so i lentils
I really enjoyed this restaurant. I found it by chance... because not many restaurants are open on Christmas. It was in a lovely boutique hotel, which was so pretty. The food was great and the service was as well.
Marcy is the best!
New items on the menu that are wonderful:
Prosciutto with burrata and arugula was light and delicious, especially with the sprinkle of pomegranate seeds.
Avocado toast with egg slices is zesty and a perfect starter.
The recommended scallops entree was that much sought after delicate interior and Carmel crust. The pureed cauliflower, so much more than potatoes would have been.
This is my go to for a quiet business meal or after work meet-up with friends.
We had appetizers.... Tuna Tartar--- it was ok, nothing great
Burrata with peaches-- nice presentation, but I expected the grilled peaches to be off the grill, not out of the refrigerator
Caesar Salad---- it was ok
Main course Hamburger--- very good and tasty
Salmon---- not too bac
Chicken---- one couple wanted to share, but we've never seen such a small chicken. It was very tasty, but it took up less space than computer mouse.
Our host was amazing ,the food excellent and overall a great time. Only compaint istyat martini glasses are way too small
The dinner was delicious and our waitress was terrific.
The one issue we had, which was a consensus, was with the chocolate brownie/cake item. It was overly chocolatey. I could imagine this being dialed down a little and being delicious. It was too rich and with only 2 very small bites it was too much. ( No I am not lactose intolerant. lol)
Overall, Viviane was a great little gem that I enjoy hanging out with my friends every now and again. We will definitely go back again!
Really enjoyed the staff and service here. I'm a little jaded because I stay at the hotel often so I've had everything on the menu. Scallops are very good.
Very much enjoyed sitting by the pool. The food was wonderful as well as the service and ambiance.
What a delightful place. I have driven by it hundreds of times and had missed it. The salmon tacos were unbelievable, and the service was terrific. Bravo.
Excellent service!! Good appetizers, the waitress was so nice, she brought a brownie with a candle because It was my birthday! would recommend to all my friends
The service was great. The cobb salad I ordered was a generous portion and was tasty. I enjoyed the stylish decor, but it did get quite loud inside toward the end of our lunch due to the amount of people dining. It was difficult to hear by guest and we were a party of 2!
Good food accompanied by a very poor wine selection (very overpriced too). Good service!
