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!

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!

Awesome intimate dining by the pool in a quaint boutique hotel in quiet corner of Beverly Hills. Service was extremely attentive and knowledgable about food and wine selection. I recommend the grilled octopus salad as an entree. Some interesting craft cocktails as well.

60's vibe with great food and cocktails. I enjoy dining outside during the summer around the kidney-shaped pool. This is the perfect place to have a quiet getaway meal with friends, or as I often do, a business meeting. My favorite meals are the grilled octopus with lentils, hamburger, and happy hour appetizers.

This place has gone downhill he last two years. I used to come a couple times a week for business. They changed the menu and now it's a $75 for a couple of salads and sodas. Food is poor. Price is way too high.

Food was great but service wasn't anything special. Waiter left us waiting and offered us no water, plates or utensils. What became even more frustrating was that there was a total of 4 tables (including ours) and we felt like an inconvenience. I've been here multiple times and have never encountered this service before, rethinking my next visit.

We sat at a poolside table for excellent food and attentive service with my dog! Food was very good - the chef lets the ingredients shine, making a simple, but tasty dish. This is a great spot to meet for drinks and appetizers and then segway into dinner. Indoor dining is available as well ad they have a full bar. I had a hearty ceasar salad and grilled octopus appetizer. The kitchen was able to change the chorizo lentils to a salad on the octopus. I appreciated the kitchen's willingness to change certain parts of a meal per my request. Scallops on risotto were great as was the grilled salmon.

Viviane at the Avalon Hotel went above and beyond our executions. We were in town for a wedding and were not sure how many people were going to have at our table. The staff set up a table for 12, then when we thought there were going to be 9 took off 3 place settings. When two more of our group showed up: no problem. We dined in a cabaña next to the pool. Marc was our water and he was very patient with a mostly out of town group. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly without being overbearing. The food was great also.

The cabanas are a huge feature of this location. Yet, the procedures to reserve them are so ambiguous that they can nearly be construed as arbitrary (dangerous move in a scene as diverse as LA). So my suggestion is simple: Figure out a basic policy around cabana reservations, communicate that in-house, post it for the public to see, and then stick to it! Seriously, save yourselves from being slapped with a discrimination lawsuit.

The waitstaff and retro atmosphere were amazing. Sadly the food was not reflective of the prices. We had scallops and risotto which were lovely but the steaks we ordered were very tough and flavorless and the broccolini was nearly raw and inedible. Hopefully it was just an off night in the kitchen as everything else was lovely.

The setting of this restaurant is quite casual and pleasant--tables are set around the pool of a small hotel. The food is good. The choices are limited but the presentation is good and the dishes are well prepared. The service is rather slapdash--our waiter was pleasant but appeared to have trouble getting our food to us in a timely and organized fashion. I got the impression his mind was on his next screen test. I would return. It was a pleasant evening.

What a great spot for lunch. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the meal with a friend. Great offerings, and the service A+. Accommodating to all our wishes and questions. Kale salad was super as was tuna melt, great coffee, and the ice cream, dreamy. I enjoyed the casual, quiet and relaxing dining by the pool. Perfect meal- will come back again.

A relaxed easy environment to enjoy a conversation of any kind. Feels private and intimate while very casual. The Service is a bit slow, however, attentive, informed and ready to serve. Love this space and will continue to support it as long as it is there.

The highs and lows:

Nice outdoor area by the pool (the hotel used to be an apartment building with one B/R apartments and it has a small free form pool with dinner tables scattered about) with heaters that work too well.

Very reasonable corkage fee ($15)

Pasta with mussels and clams was just good, my dates scallops were better.

Menu is limited.

Located in the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills. The restaurant is near the pool area and offers some people watching. The menu is fairly basic, but decently prepared and presented. It has a laid back atmosphere and does the job for hotel guests. I don't know that it would be a destination for locals.

My overall dining experience was fine, but I faced a major issue at the valet. There were two cars blocking the driveway when I was waiting at the valet stand on my way out. The valet pulled my car up to the end of the driveway. Several minutes went by where there was no movement to get the cars in front of me out of the way, so I was forced to back out of the driveway onto the street. While doing so, because of the narrow driveway and how the valet had parked my car, it caught on the curb and unhinged my front bumper which is greatly upsetting. While I appreciate the complimentary valet parking, there should be more efficiency and better communication overall and no one came to check on me or my car at that time. It's unacceptable that I should now have to deal with this damage because of the free valet parking.

My husband and I went there for the first time for lunch. We arrived on time and the place was empty, but it was on a rainy Monday. We were seated quickly and our waiter was prompt and courteous. The food arrived quickly and was very good. We will definately give this hotel another try as it has great potential to be a fun place to drop in (we live close enough to walk!).
