As with any in-demand dining destination, if you want to score a reservation at The Belvedere, we suggest you call ahead. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, tucked inside The Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel, is a pretty popular place amongst the wheelers and dealers of the nearby CAA and ICM agencies, and it’s not uncommon to find the dining room filled with movie-making types in the midst of deal-sealing meetings. Avoid the disappointment of a packed house and book your reservation at The Belvedere ahead of time; just call the hotel directly or make a reservation online to guarantee a meal from chef James Overbaugh’s modern American menu. If you’d prefer a more laid-back setting, plan to make a reservation at The Belvedere for brunch, where you’ll be able to enjoy the garden-like patio, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors, while sipping a glass of Perrier-Jouët. Of course, if you’re checking in for an overnight stay, the concierge will make sure to ask if you’ve already taken care of your reservations (and can help you book a last-minute table), but if you want to guarantee a dinner spot, plan ahead.
