The staff here is wonderful, but Circa 55 is nothing more than a glorified hotel restaurant. It is grossly overpriced to the point where it's borderline offensive. For example, the breakfast buffet, while pretty good, is a whopping $30 per person. That means a $60 check for some bacon, an omelette, and yogurt. I had lunch which was a glass of iced tea and a caesar salad with shrimp and my total check was just at $40!

I wouldn't be so upset about the prices if the quality was there, but it's not. My salad was good but for the price it should've been great. The lettuce was nothing special and the raddiccio was super bitter. I had to pay an extra $6 for grilled shrimp but I only got FOUR tiny little shrimp slapped on top of my plate! They may have been perfectly cooked, but that is outrageous, especially for the mediocre quality. The worst thing was that my iced tea cost $6! Yes, SIX DOLLARS for an iced tea! Thank goodness they offered free refills and it wasn't priced by the glass!

I felt the same way about breakfast, but the food quality is far better at breakfast. The highlights of the buffet are the roasted sweet potato "home fries," the crispy smoked bacon, the fresh strawberries, and the make your own yogurt parfait bar with some truly tasty homemade granola! I don't like eggs but my hubby raves about the create your own omelette bar here and he says they are crazy delicious. If you like pastries and baked goods, the selection is fantastic. I'm still trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to eat low carb, but I was so tempted by the brand muffins and fresh cookies that I had to indulge. The muffin was well worth it; the cookie was not.

At breakfast, the $30 charge does include regular American coffee, hot tea, fresh juices and / or soda, so go ahead and order that Diet Coke! I'd recommend drinking plain ice water at lunch, however.

The service is efficient and fast, and I'm always impressed how the servers refuse to interrupt you if you are looking at your cell phone. I guess they're used to very important Hollywood types dining here because they refuse to bother you if you look busy! So put that phone away already. The hostess staff is great too, and they sometimes even remember your name and room number!

Ask for a seat outside by the pool or inside with a poolside view. The people watching is crazy good here, as you can imagine.

For a place in Beverly Hills, the brunch at Circa 55 is very generous AND reasonably priced! The restaurant is spacious and pretty, and the food was delicious. Looking forward to going back some time!

This pleasant poolside restaurant at the Beverly Hilton has good food and the all-you-can-drink Prosecco brunch is a great deal. The service is hit-or-miss and you could crack a tooth on the macaroons.
