The Roof Garden at The Peninsula Beverly Hills Ratings and Reviews
The food we had at the Roof Garden was under whelming and we were quite disappointed especially coz others had recommended we go try it there. Our company always has events at the hotel and I've always enjoyed the food. We'd also go back for tea (since we've had that several times and absolutely love it) and the bar. I don't know if it was just what we had ordered or not. Two of us had the lobster roll and it was almost like a ceviche sandwich and not what we had expected . Server was very knowledgeable and excellent though!
One serious problem - and this has never happened before in years at your wonderful venue - was my guest sept back the crab salad. The former foreign minister of Thailand and a total seafood "expert," he said it had gone foul. I was embarrassed and surprised. Please take no such chances. Your sterling reputation is worth, well, gold.
For $28 I expected more than 6 small overcooked shrimp on a single slice of tomato, a few small pieces of pineapple and some very thinly sliced relish. That was it- no side salad or other accompaniment. It would have made a nice appetizer for half the price! The banana pudding (and half whipped cream)was underwhelming and tasteless. Very odd restaurant.....you have to walk down the hallway of the 5th floor hotel, through the spa and watch sunbathers walk through the restaurant t get to the pool. Meh!
I took my family here for my daughter's graduation from High School. You come to a restaurant like the Roof Garden for the outdoor ambience - so it was a shame that the first two tables we were offered (I had reserved two weeks in advance) were facing the kitchen and a concrete wall. I am prepared to pay elevated prices in exchange for an upscale, outdoor experience but I was not prepared for such culinary mediocrity. The two Chinese Chicken salads ($25 each) were bland and easily outclassed by Chin Chin or its equivalent. (It is one of my mother's favorite dishes and she barely touched hers). My Portobello/Black Bean Burger ($22) was dry and uninspired. My Hearts of Palms salad ($16) had a few vague slivers of hearts of palms and a mound of damp, tasteless frisee lettuce. The special greek salad was small, dominated by tomatoes, and had barely any feta cheese. The small piece of salmon that came on top cost an additional $18. My daughter ordered a diet coke which came in that ridiculously small 8 oz. bottle and cost $6.50. We honestly could have had better tasting and more satisfying dining experience at a local deli. The rooftop view is not worth the expense, since you actually can't see off the rooftop. All you can see is the disappointed faces of your fellow diners. The only positive note was the table service. Total cost with tip for six: just under $400. I would avoid this restaurant.
Disappointed with the food this time. Vege burger was cold, mushy with no discernible taste. Other meals at the table were fine, and I have had many wonderful meals here. Just an off night on what I ordered (which others tasted, with same opinion.)
This is one of my favorite places to eat and to take guests, so I will definitely be back.
I met a friend here to catch up and it was the perfect place. The heaters were perfect, kept us warm but not too hot like so many can be. My salmon was cooked perfectly and my friends mushroom burger and fries were to die for. They have a great wine selection and everyone in the hotel is lovely and helpful.
