Everything was great including our waitress. She went out of her way to accomodate us.The garlic noodles are worth it but one order is enough for three to four people.

Stopped by due because of a friends recommendation. Decided to grab a few drinks. I would have to make special plans in order to afford a meal here but the drinks were of exquisite quality. Nathan was our bartender and he offered classy service. Definitely made us feel like ballers even though I am no where near that territory! Nice... More

Before deciding to try Crustacean restaurant again after 20 years, I read the reviews posted by prior diners on TripAdvisor. I was surprised that there could be such a varied response regarding the food, price and service... Now I understand why the poor reviews were written. Our dining experience was not close to fine dining and the service was disappointing... More

My children and I drove down from Santa Barbara for Easter dinner this evening. My daughter had specifically asked to go to Crustacean for dinner. I have been to this restaurant many different times, and unfortunately the quality of the food and service is declining at each and every visit. We spent more than two hours in traffic this evening... More

Excellent food. I love this place. The crab and garlic noodles are to die for. Pink lotus cocktail was incredible as well. The veggies were crisp and well seasoned. Pricey but very well worth it.

Crustacean has been in business for two decades. They must be doing something right. But not at this visit. I am generally a fan of the House of An , and have eaten at their other restaurants. We were a group of six diners. The waiters could not be bothered. We had to get up and ask someone if we... More

Famous huge crabs were good. Garlic pasta could be tastier - perhaps more " garlic-ky" taste would be better. Appetizer plate was good ! Ambience : the fiberglass or tempered glass walkway with a koi pond beneath is a major attraction. Nice touch for a resto. But the lighting was too dark for my taste- i couldn't see the food...

Interesting restaurant with the aquarium running through the restaurant that you walk over and jazz singer in bar. It was not what I would have expected for a Beverly Hills restaurant. We had the ahi tacos to start and they were very delicious but the coconut shrimp were just ok. My sister ordered the salt and pepper calamari and asked... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
