it was great, my in-laws took us for our anniversary. We all love it here. The only issue was that we mentioned it was our anniversary and they had all these tables reserved and we were seated in a "not so great table". There was a beautiful table outside that was empty the entire time, which would have been a great table to celebrate. I will have to call next time and "reserve" a nicer table.

Don't buy the travelzoo brunch deal. The value is not nearly as good as is advertised because the small print isn't disclosed until you buy it. You must pay a 20% tip on the undiscounted price of the brunch, which is valued much more than is warranted, ,thereby negating the value of the discount. Also, I'd like to know who ever tips 20% on a brunch, especially with only moderate service?

Came for brunch and it was amazing. Get the travelzoo deal to have 2 for $80. So much food including tons of fresh seafood and barbecued meats. Unlimited champagne and it’s not the cheap stuff. I’ll be back!

Saturday Brunch- loved everything about it: great service, very good buffet including champagne, they validate valet parking if you do brunch...it is only $7! I have to mention the service again...it is outstanding. Thank you for making our brunch such a great one again- we will be back for sure <3.

They didn’t come to our table much... took them forever to refill our mimosas but the food made up for any service they were lacking and it isn’t offensive for the price you pay. Wish we could have sat outside, but otherwise, it was great

The Sunday Brunch at Circa 55 in The Beverly Hilton was wonderful! Huge selection of food, from breakfast, to salads, hot selections, a cold seafood bar and splendid desserts! It was a little rainy that morning, but usually the grill is going out by the pool for grilled burgers, etc. And best of all, the free flowing mimosas to top it all off! We also had the regular breakfast buffet one day, which was excellent and we were able to sit out by the pool and enjoy the beautiful California breeze! I love The Beverly Hilton and can't wait to stay there again! However, if you are staying somewhere else, or live in Beverly Hills, it's worth a trip to Circa 55, morning, noon or night!

Open table let us book the brunch before the start of brunch. But Hilton staff took care of everything and we will be back, but will book directly with hotel. Again food and staff were top notch.

I had a kale and fennel salad with fresh veggies and grilled chicken. It was delicious. The food is fresh and is served in a beautiful outdoor setting. You can eat poolside or in the mid century inspired inside dining area. The wait staff is friendly and attentive.

I dined at this restaurant twice during my stay and each time the service was not good. Even when the restaurant was not busy it would take forever to order, get refills on water, etc. not what I expected given the reputation of the hotel.

We arrived a bit before 11 AM for our reservation, and were told the restaurant wasn’t having brunch and was closing at 11 due to a conference. However we had made a reservation online, and Circa 55 had text confirmed it was still on days earlier. We were told it would be open then and we’re blindsided when we arrived. They offered us free breakfast as it was finishing up, but the kitchen was half closed by the time we arrived and everything good was already taken away. Really ruined my day.

I never do this...but this was bad.... Part of the draw was the Easter egg hunt. They let us know it would start at 12:15 but they would come around and let everyone know when to send their children outside. The 2 little girls (5 and 6 years old) were very excited and had their baskets ready. When they came around to let us know it was about to begin, we made our way outside to the pool area very quickly. When we got there, the staff around the pool casually told us after we weren't finding any eggs anywhere that we were too late as a couple families went early and got all the eggs for their kids. We saw a handful of families standing around with huge basket of eggs. This was very disappointing and the kids were very sad. A dad saw how sad the kids were and went around finding hardboiled eggs in decorations and tried to plant eggs in front of our kids and encourage them to find the hardboiled eggs as a default. We consoled the kids and tried to distract with icecream at the kids gelato station. When they ordered the chocolate, the server let us know it was made with real coffee and was actually mocha? So we let the kids know to choose another flavor?? When we told the manager, she was annoyed and could care less. We asked if we could at least have the girls not be charged. This seemed to be a huge inconvenience to them, but after we stayed firm about what had happened she credited just one of the children but told us she had credited two. We pointed this out, she was annoyed again and it was a complete production. Total bummer. Sad to see on many levels from the hotel and from the families that took ALL the eggs prior to the hunt.
