Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel Reviews
Aug 26, 2007
A group of friends went here for brunch. the polo lounge offers a prix fixe meal with a bunch of choices for your appetizer, entree, dessert and a cocktail.
for the appetizer, i had the crab cake. that was very tasty (not great, but pretty good). the outside had the nice semi-crunchy consistency and the inside was crabilicious. i tasted a friend's tuna tartare and i thought it was just ok.
for the entree, i had the lobster risotto. Again, i thought it was just ok, the lobster was nice but it was a tad bit overdone. i tried a friend's halibut and that was too salty and overcooked. the presentation was nice though. we did send it back and the place gladly gave us another option at no charge. so we had the french toast. that was good -- it had cranberries.
for the dessert, i had the chocolate mousse with raspberries on top and raspberry sauce on the side. i did enjoy this one. there was also a side of vanilla ice cream on a small cup made entirely of chocolate. a friend's peach tart was ok -- but i am partial to chocolates.
our cocktails were pretty tasty. i had the kir royale (they call it champagne kir) and tasted a friend's lemon drop. can't really go wrong with these.
the service was good. when we had to send back the halibut, they were very apologetic and made sure that the replacement entree was ordered right away. the servers were friendly. No haughtiness here.
the price is pretty ridiculous though. the cost per person is $48 without tax and tip. the servings are not big and the food, i think is just average.
