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!
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.
Love the restaurant but the noise level inside is just too loud.
Had a great time ! I see they didn’t credit me any points but still it was a win !
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.
reasonable prices and good view and cute outside pool area
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.
Came here with a friend for a bite to eat. We tried the Octopus, the beet salad and the tuna tartar. It was all good, and light.
Stayed here a few times and found the services really great. I like the cocktails and the menu, while not extensive, is very good.
The food at Saturday brunch was fine but the pounding music at poolside was inexcusable and ruined the experience. What is the point of a DJ at 1pm?
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 waiter was horrible and clearly didn't want to be there. The food was average at best.
Spectacular ambience, incredible service----thanks to Paula, Danielle, Jason, Warner, David, Marvin, etc--
We paid an additional fee to ensure a cabana table by the pool, which was lovely. The food was very mediocre.
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 food and service were excellent. Outdoor eating was very nice.
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.
