Elegant Little Gem

Dined on February 26, 2016

408 Rodeo is a small, sweet restaurant with a great view of the Beverley Wilshire. The wait staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. My breakfast was divine. The Scottish and a Bloody Mary. The flavors were on point. I highly recommend 408 Rodeo.

Great for a casual evening out on rodeo

Dined on February 21, 2016

very good service, the staff was very friendly. The food was great quality, but there wasn't very much to choose from. I went here around 6:30 with a girlfriend after an afternoon of shopping on rodeo, and we really had a great time here. Will definitely be coming back.

Overall Restaurant value

Dined on February 15, 2016

The out door and indoor setting is so cramped, you'll be sharing a long table with the other guests side by side, food took a very long time to be served, food tastes mediocre and rediculously expensive for its taste and accommodation; I don't mind paying high as long as long as it's tasty, not miniature portion and serve in time -

Bad Service

Dined on February 15, 2016

We waited for over 1 hour just to get our appetizer, our waiter did not check on us even after i told him of the delay, the service people actually helped us out. Had to get a manager involved to get our food

No privacy

Dined on February 15, 2016

The tables were too close to each other, making it very uncomfortable for privacy for all the couples, to the point where I extended my leg and I accidentally stepped on the shoe of the person on the table next to us. The food was good but I didn't find all that to be $90 per person plus a $8 charge for a bottle of water. And including a 15% tip in the bill didn't seem very professional either. The service was good, nothing outstanding either. What I did like was the live singer and the location.

The tomahawk steak was worth every penny! Easily the most expensive steak I have ever ordered, and I did not regret! Outdoor seating was nice, a little cramped, but not bad as it wasn't that busy. Bread and olive oil combo was fresh and amazing! Overall would highly recommend to anyone.

Awful, Awful, AWFUL!

vip
Dined on December 9, 2015

They offer a $10 coupon if the customer writes a good review on yelp.. Which tells me that this is their tactic to fight against stream of bad reviews they are getting. Charging 20% mandatory service tip is horrible. And we had to leave s tip for the waitress on top of that. we only had 2 people eating, not 8. Tourists will grudgingly pay this, because they are traveling and will never return. But not us, the locals. We will NEVER return to this restaurant. Food was burnt, and wrong orders came out.

A hit and a miss

vip
Dined on December 4, 2015

Eating outdoors in December was a treat in itself, surrounded by all the holiday revelers enjoying themselves. Perfect ambiance. Unfortunately, the meal didn't do justice to the surroundings. I ordered the seafood salad, which was so salty it was inedible. I could hear my teeth crunching the salt crystals! The server, a lovely young woman, insisted the meal be replaced (I was just going to order something else) which was generous since it was priced at $36. The second try was a little better, but after asking for some lemon wedges to counter balance the salt, I took most of it home, where I tossed it. Frankly, I felt a little badly for the server, or otherwise I would have left the 2nd meal on the plate. My guest's pasta was just right though. I'd certainly return, but would re-think my menu selection. Oh, and be reminded they add 15.5% tip. I added an additional amount in deference to the server's attention, but the people at the table next to us realized they were about to tip on top of the mandatory tip, then caught themselves.

Anniversary Lunch

Dined on November 28, 2015

Wife and I celebrated our one year anniversary in Hollywood/Beverly Hills by staying just blocks down from Rodeo. After my Wife had fun shopping we decided to have lunch at 208 Rodeo, next door to Tiffany's. We shared lunch with friends and we were satisfied with both the food and drink selection. We sat outside as the restaurant looked a bit crowded inside. Overall a good place to unwind after shopping!

Thanksgiving dinner, 4 course or limited off menue...we did a bit of both between the 6 of us. Minestrone was fabulous, kale salad was...well kale, but good. All entres were beautiful and quite delicious to eat! The desert tray was to die 4....my favorite was the canoli. A bit pricey but definitely will return, sans the 4 kids, and will sample some of the wines they offer

Great restaurant in fantastic location

Dined on October 6, 2015

208 Rodeo offers a fantastic selection of hearty food, each of the dishes we had were very tasty. The location is fantastic, located just off Rodeo Drive and overlooking The Beverley Wilshire hotel from the outdoor seating area. The server was knowledgeable and made some great recommendations - particularly in relation to wine.

Tourist Trap

vip
Dined on September 29, 2015

Huge disappointment. Extremely overpriced, especially considering the skimpy portions, child-sized, poor flavoring and being unfulfilled, one must quickly find another restaurant. For example, a lobster roll is generally $20 at most westside restaurants, including Santa Monica Seafood, but here it was $24. My $21 burger came w/ only a salad -- not French fries -- for an additional $3 or $4. Ridiculous! My friend's $24 pasta entrée consisted of five dollar sized pieces. Period. Never again! Worst restaurant in Beverly Hills -- and we have dined at most of the best.

This is our second time to dine at Rodeo 208 and I was not disappointed. It was wonderful! Great, friendly service and the entrees were delicious and reasonably proportioned. We sat on the patio where they had live music, it was very nice and energetic. I'm from the Midwest, so I didn't care for how close the tables were placed next to each other, but not a big deal. I plan to return.
