How's the dining room at Beechwood?

Most of the pictures on the website seem to be of the bar/lounge area.

I'm trying to choose a restaurant for my birthday dinner with my girlfriends. =) Looking for a relaxed atmosphere, good food, on the westside...

    Those photos are pretty much of the whole place - that main room is the dining room. As you can tell, it's a casual vibe, fun with good energy. Food is not bad, can be hit or miss, but the fries are great. I'd say that it would be a fun, laid back place to go. If this weather holds up, the patio would be nice.

      If cocktails and scene are 80% as opposed to food and service, Beechwood fits. If you are more concerned with food and drink wine, maybe Wilshire or Rustic Canyon.

        I like Beechwood, however, I don't associate the place with a "relaxed" atmosphere. Rustic Canyon sounds like it meets all your requirements nicely!

          I agree with MahiMahiFish. I remember Beechwood's dining room to be very loud .. not exactly "relaxed" IMO either.

            The dining room, in contrast to the bar/lounge, is small and relatively quiet.
