    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    There have been many times I've found myself staring down the barrel of a pricey menu praying the chefs love food and are not just in love with being chefs. Often, I am disappointed. Beatrice and Woodsley was not one of these times. We started our meal with the crawfish beignets: Sweet, savory, great balance (thought a little more spice wouldn't have hurt). For an entree, I had Billy the burger while my girlfriend had the sweet-pea tortellini. The burger was hearty and the accompany of beets chips made it memorable. The sweet-pea tortellini was a bit shocking in terms of portion (about five small tortellinis), though delicious. The decor is beautiful; like being a tree house, and washing your hands is, well... an experience. You'll see.

    I brought my husband here for brunch to celebrate our 6th anniversary. It was a great place to have special dishes we normally wouldn't have. For an out of towner, the place was a little hard to find even on Broadway! But once inside, the place was full of WONDERMENT! Loved the decor! A little less romantic than I thought with the open floor plan type seating. Food was great! We had and I'd suggest the crawfish beignets, watermelon/beat salad, biscuits & sage gravy. Bloody Mary was excellent as was the Americano coffee. Dessert was tasty too! Creme brûlée and banana cream pie. They comped one of the desserts for anniversary celebration! Thank you! All in all we loved it and will return again to celebrate special happenings!

    First let me tell you that this review is my personal opinion. Just because this review is not favorable does not mean you should let this change your decision on trying out this restaurant ...Who knows , you may fall in love with it . "The ambiance is nice but that's about all this restaurant has to offer for me .They have more drinks than food items.I feel like there wasn't enough options to choose from. The food tastes good not great but good. Be prepared that the portions are very small .Don't go here if you are starving. By the way our server was excellent and helped us make great choices throughout the meal. PRINT NEW MENUS!

    Every time I come here I have a great experience, whether it is dinner, brunch or an after work drink at the bar. Admittedly, their beer list is rather limited, but if you can do with wine or a mixed drink then have no fear. Very unique setting in the city.

    Beatrice and Woodsley usually knocks my socks off. This visit, however, was just okay. It wasn't bad. The food was good - not great - but good. The service was okay, but again not great. It was a pleasant experience, but not quite the caliber we expected. The biscuits and gravy were good, not great; the server didn't know the difference between herbal tea and black tea; the roobois tea was served in a French Press coffee maker, which meant the last of it was very strong and bitter; the Tea Thyme cocktail, however, was great. Otherwise, it was a mediocre experience. Again, nothing was terrible; but we are still likely to pick a different spot for the next celebratory meal.

    Possibly the most entertaining part of the meal was watching people come out of the restroom and try to wash their hands in the single most pretentious sink and faucet on earth. It was a 50/50 chance if they'd succeed with this act of basic hygiene. And yes, the sink is on display for you in the dining room, separated by a sheet of glass. The place felt like a cavern of the dead, and the food would have been best served to those who had no taste buds. To be fair, the goetta was very tasty, but it was smothered in this overly-dijoned hollandaise-wannabe and then topped with poached eggs replete with uncooked, runny whites. The "tiny omelette"= 1 scrambled egg & 1 leaf of unseasoned spinach.The worst place we've ever been for breakfast.

  • Poor Response to Hair in Food
    Loyalcust
    Dined on 7/19/2014
    We love going here for brunch and always have a nice time. This last time though fell short due to poor management response to hair in our food. There was a hair in our appetizer. When we told our waiter his reaction was annoying. He didn't know how to react. We had to ask him to bring us a new one and he actually said "I might have to charge you for the second one, I will ask my manager." Our waiter made it feel like it was our fault that there was a hair. As a manager, after hearing there was a hair in your customer's food, you need to go over to the table and personally apologize. Also this item should be comped from the check all together! As loyal customers it was very disappointing to be treated this way.

    We were in the mood for a lots of tastes, so we asked if we told the chef what looked good could he make a portion of small plates for 4 to share. "no". Can you split an entre "no". The waiter was apologetic that the chef refused any request. Food was good as usual but the evening could have been much better if the chef were willing to share his/her skill in a more flexible manner.

    The food was all wonderful, but two dishes really impressed - and they were both daily specials, so I'm downright devastated that I won't be able to have them again and again! The Daily Restorative, a chilled corn and apple soup, was a unique surprise. At our wonderful server's suggestion, I had an ahi tuna dish and please understand that I don't use this compliment lightly - it very well might have been the best thing I have ever eaten. It was breathtaking to look at on the plate, too. Our only complaint was that we were seated only a few feet from another party that was VERY loudly having a VERY offensive discussion that included with profanity and racial slurs. I wish the staff had asked the other party to quiet down or even leave.

    Really interesting ambiance, fascinating wine list (I think almost all the by-the-glass wines were rose when I visited, which was fun). Small portions, but very good. The tomato tart small place was really good. I had the trout special that night; sauces on side were tasty additions. Overall, a nice place I'd return to. Fair return on investment.

    1st-Where's the sign? Are you that pretentious that you think people want to actually search for the number "38" in your address? Put a sign up outside like the rest of the businesses in the world so people can find you. 2nd-No Highchairs?.... Seriously? I eat out a A LOT of places and they all have some family accommodation.. Most "foodies" bring the whole gang out to eat. They are well behaved and surprisingly appreciate good food. 3rd-You have more drinks than you do food items... Sure I like to have a drink with my food. But you need more items and add some meat! 4th-When we first sat down, the waitress proceeded to update 3 meals that that were "now" completely different items than what was on the menu...

    Beatrice & Woodsley has great ambience and service. The food tastes very good. But.... be prepared that the portions are very small - I mean very. The appetizers aren't really enough for one person - let alone if you like to share. And, the prices are way high for what you get. We had one entree, two appetizers and two glasses of wine each (2 people) and the tab was about $110... be prepared and don't go here if you are starving.

    Love this place - the decor is fascinating and whimsical, and the good even better. The chef is not shy about trying new things, so you can join in the risk taking and go for it (though I don't recommend the parsnip steak though it was worth a shot). Funny experience where they were out of 2 of the liquor choices I made, but the waiter handled it with dignity and grace.

    We had a lovely meal at this gorgeous and really different restaurant. The menu is very interesting with the food very well prepared and beautifully presented. We shared four small plates so we could experience as many of the flavors as we could. Crawfish Beignets were excellent and a delightful surprise. The escargots were cooked in a less traditional way with the inventive touch of sweet pea purée. The interior of the restaurant is worth a trip even without a meal - the designed is to be commended. Birch trees appear to be growing inside, and one MUST visit the bathroom. Be sure to look up when there!

    The atmosphere was something new and different. The decor was beautiful, very romantic. The menu option was small. I feel like there wasn't enough options to choose from. It took a while for our drinks and appetizers to come out. Our waiter was nice and awesome. The staff was great but the problem was the food and how expensive it is. I had better dishes at a much lower price. It was still an awesome experience, we wanted to try something new and unfortunately it was just okay. Went down the street for ice-cream.

    Was attending a convention in Denver and had dinner here for a party of six - at first when we arrived by cab we were like - uh oh, but once we went through the doors all changed for the better. We had a great time and my guests totally enjoyed the dinner/drinks/service. The décor is remarkable. I would highly suggest for a Thu/Fri/Sat night - we went on a Sunday so place was not packed but that was okay since it was with customers. Food was excellent.
