I have been coming to the Polo Lounge going back to the early 1990’s, although this is my first visit in over 15 years. Something’s never change. The Beverly Hills Hotel is a classic and the Polo Lounge is part of the ambiance of this historic establishment. That said, if you are looking for a fine dining experience this is not the restaurant I would recommend. The menu is more homey then fine dining. A high priced variety of steak, fish (fried chicken) and pasta dishes, including a Bolognese that priced out at $54. The food was good but not extraordinary, including my Dover sole, a special, which was the smallest sole I believe I have ever had. The reviews seem unanimous around the table and while we enjoyed the experience this is not an establishment I would recommend for the business diner. To be truthful, looking around the establishment, it seemed most of the guest were there to see who else was there or to be seen themselves. That is a quality that is unique to this city and I do not begrudge those looking for that experience but good, not great, food, wine and a price tab of over $1,500 for seven is not an experience for those that enjoy good company and food.
