The Polo Lounge has been the favorite breakfast spot and watering hole for generations of stars and Hollywood deal-makers. Guests enjoy indoor and outdoor seating for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and late-night suppers. Lunch and dinner are served with piano accompaniment. A jazz trio performs every Sunday on our Polo Patio to complete the signature brunch experience. In the evening, guests can come to relax and enjoy one of our many specialty cocktails or one of our old favorites. The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel is a classic in Los Angeles and a must for meetings, lunch or dinner.

I would say not worth the price. We were staying at the hotel, so it was convenient, but otherwise nothing special.

Beautiful restaurant with old world charm but food is a hard pass for its prices. Staff are dressed in formal white suits but serving people wearing flip flops and jeans. Loud uncouth characters bounce from table to table disturbing others trying to enjoy a romantic setting- assumed regulars as sadly staff do nothing but greet them by their first names. Plenty of reality tv personalities- but I guess that says it all.

An iconic and legendary spot. Granted, I was married there so I might be partial. Nevertheless, it is a stylish and impeccably kept hotel. The polo lounge carries the mystique of generations gone by. It’s nostalgic; yet, simultaneously intimate and seminal. One strike is the price. It is particularly expensive. Obvious but still, be careful. You do get a tremendous value for the locale and especially the service. Not an everyday spot. A memorable visit among every type of person from all over the world.

I really loved how the patio seating and the indoor seating were all part of the same room. It was very cool on the patio even though the day was hot. We did sit in the patio area but even the interior part of the restaurant was open to the air. I ordered steak tartare and a small cheesecake, which was the perfect size at roughly 3" diameter. My husband ordered a slice of cake which was enormous. The proportions of each fit the dish though. I loved the steak tartare, which was prepared tableside by the waiter to taste. We dont drink so I dont know about the wine selection or whatever. It was a mid afternoon dinner because that's when I get hungry so not many other people were there which was nice.

Simply the best! Outstanding service, delicious food, perfect ambience. This is the go-to place in Beverly Hills. We were staying at the hotel, so it was an easy decision to make. Like the rest of the hotel, the Polo Lounge is as near perfect as you can get. Pricey, but worth it. I can’t wait to come back.

Service was the only real complaint. Our waiter disappeared several times. Luckily the guy in the section next to us was on top of things. Food was amazing. Had the oysters to start, a Caesar salad, and I had the burger. Was amazing. My wife had the steak frites and it was also excellent. Price is what it is for this experience.

Tour of the West Coast of America. This was part of my “Pretty Woman” experience and included a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive; sadly Richard Gere wasn’t there to pick up the tab...

Lovely restaurant; food was amazing, service excellent. Really outstanding. Absolutely divine experience.

My only criticism; learn how to do espresso, and really a restaurant of your calibration should KNOW what ristretto is, and be able to serve one...

This hotel is definitely riding on its history. Inside the Polo Lounge is dark, outside is shabby and dated with bugs. Another gripe is that they would not accept a UK driving licence as proof of age. The food was good, but nothing exceptional and the portion size of the Bolognese was small. The woman at reception was rude, however the young chap who whistled us a taxi was a delight.

We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary and they bent over backward to make it a perfect evening. We were seated outside on the iconic patio. The live soft guitar and vocals were lovely and not so loud that it dominated the evening - not an easy task! Our meals were superb and all of the servers and staff were professional, kind, and charming. They brought us our chocolate souffle with "Happy Anniversary" hand-piped onto the plate. We recommend it highly!

The iconic experience lives on at the Polo Lounge! Our family of four was visiting from the Atlanta area and wanted to experience "true old Hollywood glamour". EVERYTHING - from our greeting at the hotel, to our walk through the beautiful grounds and pool area, to our attentive servers, to the music, food, and drinks at the restaurant itself was AMAZING! Is it pricey - yes, BUT do you get what you pay for and more - ABSOLUTELY! I cannot recommend this experience highly enough!
