The Belvedere

A venerable L.A. institution
One of Los Angeles’ most venerable fine-dining restaurants, the acclaimed Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Belvedere has long served as a deal-sealing destination in Beverly Hills. Many a silver-screen contract has been signed across these tables, as fast talkers from the nearby CAA and ICM agencies have held court here, but it's also been the setting for numerous proposals, ladies luncheons and black-tie affairs since the hotel opened in August 1991.

But, after an extensive four-month remodel completed in January 2015, the restaurant has debuted a stunning transformation. Now serving European brasserie cuisine, the menu includes dishes like duck breast with cherries and pistachio, and bison ribeye with blueberry barbecue sauce..

Inside the dining room, cheerful blue and white plaid patterns and contemporary French paintings give the space a charming, Paris-meets-country look. The terrace outside also has a rural European aura, perfect for a glass of one of the Belvedere’s vintage wines.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The waitstaff at The Belvedere knows its stuff. With detail and precision, plates will arrive and disappear as if on cue; you'll feel relaxed and taken care of, without a stuffy overbearing air, making your meal and experience completely enjoyable.
  • On weekends, indulge in the Bubbles & Bells free-flow champagne brunch. As you enjoy lemon-ricotta pancakes, avocado toast, fried chicken and waffles, and more, just ring a bell when you want a champagne refill.
  • This is a quintessential Beverly Hills spot, with a refined and chic atmosphere, so if you're looking for a delicious dinner in a luxurious atmosphere, this is your place.
  • Watch for the rotating offerings at The Belvedere. The restaurant continually comes up with events (many times with an artistic bent), including an Emerging Artist Series, a Cirque de Soleil performance and a collaboration with Sonoma County distiller Wolves Whiskey.
  • While this may be a brasserie, it offers a plant-based menu starring herbs and vegetables from the hotel's own garden.
Things to Know
  • The Belvedere caters to a mix of people, but be warned: this isn't the trend-setting young Hollywood crowd; an older, more sophisticated group of diners eat here. 
  • Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, the Belvedere follows suit of its surroundings; you don’t need to pull out the diamonds and tux for dinner at this Four-Star locale, but you should plan to dress to impress. Men, don a jacket, and ladies, pack a nice ensemble (a cocktail dress should do). 
  • This restaurant's armada of vinos is quite lengthy and more than likely, you'll need the sommelier's help to select the best wine to go with your meal.
  • If you're looking to throw a larger party at The Belvedere, the lovely private dining room is the perfect place to play host. For an intimate space, the private dining room features gold and cream décor and one long table that seats up to 20 people.
