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

I love the House of An. I've been to most of their restaurants many times - AnQi, Tiato, Crustacean SF - and it's always been an amazing experience both with the quality of food and with the quality of service. Crustacean LA had some of the worst customer service I've ever experienced in a restaurant, and the food was definitely... More

OK, if you are in Beverly Hills, do not pass up this gem. This restaurant is amazing. I love the crab, have them crack it and order the garlic noodles. I love everything I have ever ordered there. I am going on Saturday night. I moved to Arizona and I am going to Los Angeles to go to this restaurant.... More

Yes I did enjoy the aquarium that you walk over beautiful fish, the hostess was friendly and greeted us warmly our server George was excellent, the food is delicious. We really enjoyed the garlic noodles, crab, and the lobster salad. However things are just a little overpriced even though it was good it wasn't fabulous. I've had fabulous food and... More

Second time at this restaurant since it is a favorite of my client's, and I couldn't be dragged back here. The maitre d' at the door couldn't be less welcoming (clearly he wishes he was some place else too). Despite having a (reconfirmed!) reservation, we were made to feel like they were begrudgingly accommodating us and escorting us to an... More

My wife and I had a pre-Valentine date there last night. We each had a martini and then started on great appetizers (Cucumber Tuna roll and Yellowtail sashimi) which were perfect. My wife loves their Lobster with garlic noodles and I decided to try their filet mignon. Her meal was great and mine they had over-cooked the meat. Quite unusual... More

I make a point of going to Crustacean for crab and garlic noodles every time I visit LA. This time was as great as always. The Illumination wine we choose was excellent and perfect for seafood. I love the Beverly martini, too. It has outstanding flavors. We had an excellent booth downstairs, good for people watching. We spoke to the... 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.
