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.

The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant. Do take an Uber Black to the restaurant/hotel, however, as a validated valet ticket just lowers the valet fee from $20-$15, which is certainly a disappointment after spending hundreds of dollars for dinner.

We were visiting LA from Portland. We met friends from Seattle to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. We ate at Polo Lounge on Thanksgiving eve and had a blast! It’s such a fun atmosphere. We loved the live music and the tables in the bar area were all singing along. Our server was so fun and attentive. Aside from the fabulous atmosphere, the food was amazing. My recommendation is the rigatoni bolognese. It’s out of this world! Everything we tried, outstanding. The Polo Lounge is our new favorite spot and we’ll definitely go back when in LA. Oh and if you’re a red wine drinker, try the Austin Hope Cabernet🤤.

My family and I are fans of the polo lounge and have been coming here for many years. On Saturday Nov 23 we began our dinner with the Russian Ossetra Iperial caviar and champagne cocktail which is the best in L.A. County. We continue with the Chilenian sea bass<, Black truffle pasta, and Prime Filet Mignon. We ended our dinner with the Chocolate Souffle and the best Grand marnier souffle we've had in a very very long time. Service was impeccable.

Loved my day here as I always do! One of my favorite in all of LA. My tacos were outstanding as well as the wine. Too bad they don't offer a White Burgundy anymore by the glass. Used to be so great. Service was lovely.

The Polo Lounge is unique and perfect. A McCarthy salad and a chocolate soufflé under the trees in the patio is a little touch of heaven.

I’ve been to this place twice before and enjoyed it. The service, food and ambience left good memories. So, as a birthday gift for my daughter, I booked a table for brunch. We arrived and decided to sit in the garden of the Polo Lounge. I want to say right away that I would have normally complained at the time, but I didn't as it would have spoilt the treat for my 16 year old daughter.
I was very disappointed by a number of things, but I should say that my daughter ordered the French Toast which she told me was excellent. The coffee I had was very good.
But, I also ordered the corned beef hash which was extremely poor. Much of the meat was tough and the onions were more or less raw. I know this place is really expensive, but at $34 that just isn't good enough. I also ordered sourdough toast and what arrived was just one slice that measured about 6x4 inches of warmed bread that I would suggest was a long way from sourdough. I was charged $7 for this.
And while we were having our meal, a number of waiters began moving furniture around right beside us. While doing this a glass fell from a table they were moving and smashed on the floor. They found this amusing. I didn't.
We left having paid far too much for the wualiry of food served to us. I left feeling let down more than anything, and will not make a point of returning.

Took my Grandmother from out of town to The Polo Lounge as it is a staples of Los Angeles. We have never been so disappointed in a restaurant before. The overpriced menu, the mediocre food, and the absolute horrible service destroyed our experience at this beautiful space. We were let down in every single way and will sadly not be returning ever again.

The Polo Lounge is nothing but a tourist trap, a place to be seen. It is for the wannabes and the restaurant takes advantage of that by up-charging their bland food to astronomical prices. A Caesar Salad drenched in dressing with soggy croutons for $34. What a waste.

The service was atrocious. My grandma, who is 92 years old, almost fell because the waiter wouldn’t help her and rushed her to her seat. He then did not offer us water during our dine and took over 30 minutes just to get olive oil after we asked 3 different waiters. He did not smile, did not check on us once, and didn’t even ask us if we wanted dessert or a coffee.

Just an overall disappointment, which is a shame because the space is pretty. The Polo Lounge is nothing but a tourist trap and if you expect to have a pleasant dining experience, look somewhere else. However, if you would like to be ignored, treated like a minority, and waste your money of soggy, tasteless, mediocre food, The Polo Lounge is the place for you!

i had a bad interaction with Eric the food and beverage manager , he charged me for a drink that a waiter accidentally spilled on me. In addition to that , a celebrity was willing to take a picture with me, but Eric told him no pictures were allowed inside the restaurant. It’s safe to say that I will never come back here again.

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.
