Mr. C Beverly Hills

Tried running a search for any discussion on this restaurant. Have been invited to a meal here, but haven't heard anything about it. Hoping to hear about people's experiences with the restaurant. What say you Hounds?

  1. I have a friend that ate there and said the best thing about the meal - was that it ended. Service was filled with attitude, slow and the wait staff did not know the menu. He is in no hurry to go back.

    1. just stick to ordering their overpriced champagne by the glass.
      they wheel a champagne cart around the restaurant all night making sure that everyone who will go for this will have a full glass all the time.
      try to avoid eating the food.
      be sure that someone else pays, preferably with an expense account.

      1. Smile during the meal, pretend you're recovering from a stomach ailment (which would explain why you're not eating much), thank your hosts for dinner, duck the paparazzi, then run over to Westwood for an In-N-Out double double. Warning: You may see some of your earlier dinner companions from Mr. C sneaking a bite at In-N-Out also.

          The paparazzi comment is priceless. This place was a total scene in the worst possible way. I don't think I've ever seen that many women marching around in FM pumps outside of Vegas.

        2. Well, I didn't loathe this place as much as the other posters did, but it was definitely a bad experience. First and foremost, the service sucks, which is kind of amazing, given the number of people working. Our waiter was basically incompetent. Food we ordered was never served. Food we didn't order appeared. And basically none of the servers had any idea who ordered what when the right food did arrive. I'm somewhat convinced that the wait staff was hired for their appearance, rather than any talent at waiting tables.

          Then there's the food. It's not awful. The ingredients were all top notch, but it didn't seem like the kitchen had the foggiest idea of what to do with these beautiful ingredients. It's like nobody back there had ever been introduced to salt, much less any more interesting seasoning. The best dish of the night was probably their mashed potatoes, and only then because it was such a shameless ode to butter (which must have been salted butter, since it seemed to be the only thing served that was properly seasoned).

          Given the prices, this place should be avoided.

            Thanks for reporting back, and thanks for taking one for the team.

              That has to count as taking at least two, if not a few more, for the team...

          2. it's been around for ages right? or am I thinking of somewhere else??
