Ate at Porto Via which was one of many choices on Camden..Parking in the public lot on Camden is only $5 after 6 a a real bargain. Traffic in BH still horrible allow enough time.

As the Polo Lounge was fully committed, we decided to get to the venue early and grab a quick pre-performance bite at one of the eateries on Canon. We chose Porta Via, as it looked crowded and the food looked decent. We were seated within 8 minutes, and were surrounded by people with their little dogs. The Beverly Hills Health Department must turn a blind eye. Oh well, when in Rome... Items were 2/3 Breakfast, served till 2pm! The service was slow, food took over 1/2 hour to arrive. At least it was hot. $14.95 for eggs benedict, decently priced, arrived hot with a handful of mixed greens salad with the ubiquitous balsamic oil and vinegar dressing, that migrated on the plate and flavored the main dish. This isn't my idea of a complementing side dish for breakfast. Weird! Lunch items were pricey with lamb chops at $35.00. My daughter ordered a salmon dish that was $24.00. The busboy was efficient and kept my water glass filled, but was noisy to the point of distraction, busing tables, as he slammed the glasses on the table, and tossed the dishes like he was dealing cards. All this splendor for $86.00. So, for a $100.00 with tip for a party of four, you get a taste to feel what it's like to be with the crowd that has breakfast in the afternoon, in the environs of the streets where $800 blouses abound, and down the street from a great theatrical venue. Be forewarned!

We ate a few blocks away at Cafe Panini on little SM Blvd. Tasty food and reasonably priced -- plus a short walk back to the Wallis

For the Wallis, my mom has a walker. The elevator to the lower portion of the theater (to avoid stairs) is only on the left side of the theater and there is no walking aisle across to the right side that will accommodate a walker. Nice people changed seats with us. If you can't do stairs and need an elevator, sit on the left side.

At this time, they only have a Food Truck for food and soft drinks and the line is long so I would eat beforehand.

Valet parking is just south of Big Santa Monica on Crescent Blvd. Self parking is on the north west corner of Little Santa Monica and Crescent.

Some of the earlier comments mentioned that you could park after 6PM in the City lot for free. That may have changed because the lot we used (entrance from either Cannon or Beverly) was a $5 dollar flat fee after 6. And guard your parking ticket because it's $22 if you lose it.

we came early at 6 for an 8pm show and parked across the street for $8.00. That way we were one of the first to get out afterwards
