Five years ago a friend and I had plans to dine here but ran out of time, so we made it our business to make it a priority on this visit. We opted to be seated inside but after doing so we waited quite a while before finally requesting that another worker locate our server. We were soon greeted by a very personable gentleman named John, who did and excellent job . Once we placed our order the food came slowly but when finally served we enjoyed it. My friend ordered the sea bass,mashed potatoes, and spinach; I ordered the grilled chicken sliders (3), and a small salad. The food was excellent but after dining, we had to again summons our server to retrieve our bill. It seems that they are either short of servers, or they are spread too thin (ie.- serving tables on the outside as well as the inside). Bottom line, do not eat here if you are in a rush; the service is slow but thorough. I will definitely eat here again but will probably opt for an outside seating in hopes of getting served sooner, and garnering increased attentiveness from our server throughout the dining experience.

Dear Apatejr, Thank you for dining with us. I appreciate that even though you are clearly upset with how long you had to wait to be served your food, you are kind enough to first praise our food and ambience....thank you for that. Regarding your wait, we will continue to strive, even with how busy we are (no excuse), to eliminate anyone having to wait for as long as you did. This is a challenge for all restaurants who prepare fresh meals and customize each order to meet personal requests. That said, we cannot afford to frustrate our treasured guests like you and hope that we will have the pleasure of serving you again in the near future.Gratefully,Mikael C.General Manager208 Rodeo Restaurant

made an opentable reservation for brunch, host didn't look up to greet us while we stood in front of him, waiting to be acknowledged as a customer. after 5 minutes for him to look up, we were seated inside without AC. again, the waiter failed to come to our table. we were never served water nor were menus even brought to us. we walked out and went across the street to the Four Seasons.....

Was recommended to this restaurant by a friend, wow, this is on one of the coolest streets "Rodeo Drive" and is great for people watching. We wanted to stop for a quick lunch before going on somewhere else, the food here at the other tables looked amazing but we didn't really have time to sample the full-blown menu. Instead we had some coffee's and a couple of sandwiches and it was superb. Lovely staff, Will definitely go there again.

Any place on Rodeo Drive is elite.
This is no exception.
Great food, service and a view.
Call first, especially when it gets later in the day.
208 is popular.
You will see and taste why.

We enjoyed our lunch at 208 Rodeo Restaurant the day we arrived in Beverly Hills. The tomato bisque soup was delicious. It is a small little restaurant with great food and great service.
