overpriced food, nice place, very good service, not very prompt kitchen staff, nice setting, great decor, horrible management
Just perfect. Headed to this place for drinks after bailing on 1912 (@ the Beverly Hills Hotel) and it saved the night. Service was impeccable, drinks were good, ambience was just right -- not too loud, but full enough to be lively. Small, cozy, not a gross meet market. Perfect lounge spot.
If you're looking for a new favorite find, you have to try Boe at the Crescent!
Beautiful location and a great outdoor seating area. Their new Temptation Happy Hour menu is delicious. I recommend the Green Envy martini and the Fried Macaroni-&-Cheese Bites.
Really friendly service and attractive crowd.
Like hanging out in my friends' back yard!. I recently found this restaurant in The Crescent Hotel, and I'm now a die-hard fan! I came with a bunch of co-workers for an after-work drink, and found an amazingly relaxed, casual, yet trendy place. The happy hour drinks and appetizers were creative with their 'seven deadly sins' theme, and the LUST martini of white chocolate and raspberry was SO delicious. I can't even begin to talk about the rest of their appetizers without mentioning the garlic herb fries....TO DIE FOR! We stayed around way past dark, to find it transformed into a perfect evening hang-out with candles, great music, fireplace, and employees who interacted with us as if we were hanging out with them in their own homes. I have been back too many times to mention since that first visit, and always find it quaint and charming, keeping us drinking, eating, and laughing the entire time. It may be off the main Beverly Hills drag by a block or two, but WELL worth it! Not to mention, the employees AND crowd are always attractive....gotta love it!
nice setting, uninspired food. It's a nice place for after-work drinks and a bite to eat. But don't expect out-of-the-box thinking here. Everything here seems regurgitated and very carbon-copy L.A. e.g. Dodd Mitchell design, $14 martinis, tuna tartare...
Boring scene but attractive outdoor location. Upscale, comfortable indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar, but lacking a crowd on a Friday night. Great BH location. Staff was very nice, but not very prompt. Interesting drink list, but drinks are weak and expensive. $13 for a martini or mojito. Food was average at best. Would not recommend going here for dinner. Consider Boe for a quite, late night drink on their outdoor sofas.
Service was very good but...... My fiance ordered Scallop but only 4 small scallops were served. The portions were too small for anyone. The food was mediocre and overpriced. I wouldn't go this place for dinner.
BH Jewel...GREAT ambiance, fun drinks. We booked Boe for my husband's bday recently and am very happy we chose this place. I had reserved the outside patio area by the fireplace, which is the best seat in the house as far as I'm concerned. We ordered all sorts of appetizers, including their garlic fries which are excellent, and some of their fun drinks. Boe is a sleek and inviting loungy restaurant/bar. It felt like you were in someone's posh backyard and the music wasn't too loud which was great b/c we could actually hear each other talk! We had the smores for dessert which everyone loved. The staff is all nice, which is refreshing in LA! I would definitely recommend this place for a group or a romantic night out. Plus you can always book a room there and just stay the night!
Truly A Wonderful Experience. I came to BOE at the Crescent hotel as a guest of a friend for a birthday celebration. I expected decent food, pretty good atmosphere, and OK service. However, to my surprise, I found absolutely amazing and unique american food, a fantastic welcoming atmosphere, with individualized thorough service. I didn't even know that this place existed! This place is truly a treat, from the minute that you walk into the very attractive modern/sleek embience to the minute that you leave with friendly valets wishing you a great night and safe drive home. I mean does this really sincerely happen in LA? Did I mention the random celebrity sightings? :)
What a Waste. Let me preface by saying I am NOT a picky eater, nor am I a snob that has diva-like requirements of their wait staff. That being said, I was more than highly disappointed with Boe considering all the rave reviews. Our waitress, though extremely friendly, didn't have a clue what was going on all night (1menu for four people, couldnt answer questions regarding the menu, etc, couldnt open or pour champagne, never refilled our empty water glasses until dessert, etc.) I ordered the "chef's favorite" sea scallops, only to be greeted with four scallops that had zero flavor (I have never used so much salt in my life!) My date had the beef shortribs, which could have been described as "fat with a side of pot roast-like beef." With so many fab restaurants in LA, don't waste your time here.
Above and beyond my highest expectations. This place is under the radar, and very chic. The interior/exterior is beautiful, contemporary, and intimate. The atmosphere is alluring with a wide variety of upscale patrons. The staff is eager to please, and are all genuinely nice, upbeat people, which is hard to find in these parts. The food is definately some of the best around. I particularly enjoyed the s'mores desert where you get your very own little fire to roast your marshmellows and make your own s'mores. It's fun and very tasty. They also have a wide variety of cocktails, martinis, and wine to choose from. I had the 'Sex Kitten' cocktail which was so good that I wanted to lick the glass out when I was done, but didn't. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to have a good time, enjoy delicious food, and receive impecable service.
