Belvedere Restaurant, Peninsula Hotel: Way, way overrated!

Food Scrounger | Jun 8, 2009 01:23 PM

Travel & Leisure Magazine reported this was the best hotel restaurant in the country. If that's true, then woe to hotel restaurants.

We dined at Belvedere last Saturday night. The restaurant is elegant and understated. Most importantly, it's quiet. And, the service is good. So, the restaurant would be a nice choice if the food were outstanding.

It's not. There were six in our party. All agreed: The food was average, at best. All of us had different dishes, so we sampled a pretty broad selection. Yet, everything was tasteless.

Even worse, the meal was exhorbitantly expensive.

If you're looking for a Los Angeles restaurant, you can do way better than Belvedere---and, at a much lower price.

Don't hurry to this establishment.
