    I don't usually recommend restaurants, because I'm rarely blown away, but this is one of the coolest restaurants I've ever been to. The dining room makes you feel like you're in a dream - - an ethereal forest that serves strong, unique drinks and delicious brunch! The restaurant is magical, and can't everyone use a bit of magic?

    I'm afraid the quality of the food has gone down since I was last at B&W. I went for brunch and had a great time (atmosphere is delightful as usual) but the food was just ok, certainly not worth what I paid. It seems B&W makes up for mediocre food with the aesthetics of the restaurant, so you're almost fooled into thinking you're getting a great meal. That's unfortunate. I'll be back, but probably just for drinks.

    The food is creative, inventive, unique, but most importantly, delicious. The decor is fun and comfortable. Unfortunately, on this visit the service was embarrassingly bad. We'll hope that was a moment of unevenness.

    The decor is amazing but the food doesn't match. The tomato tart was delicious but the eggplant/ricotta gnocchi was just okay. My daughter had the catfish but it wasn't seasoned well and it was a lot of fried food, fried catfish and huge slices of roasted potatoes. The cucumber side was good. My chicken roulade was tasty but too salty. Dessert was good. Wine list was okay. Server also doesn't tell us when we got the menus that they were out of the cheese cheesecake appy and we were all disappointed.

    In some ways, B+W is almost trying too hard to be hip, from the over the top decor to the wildness of the menu. As with other similar restaurants, sometimes the cooking chops don't live up to the beautiful descriptions and outstanding plating of the food. Happy hour is a fantastic deal with a great cocktail selection. My food was exceptional, but for the other people in my party, it was just ok. The service was fantastic. Her recommendations were very helpful.

    The first time I went here was great. The second time was not great. I got the catfish with fries on the side. However, there was little to no flavoring at all on the food. The potatoe wedges were similar to a football arena wedges. Very disappointing.

    This is the one and only resteraunt in the States or in Europe that my wife and I would give all 5 stars. I read some of the negative reviews and I think can see that some of the things that make this place the very best are the things that some people might complain about. The place is low key and the hosts andd waitstaff do not constantly ask us how we are doing or if we need anything. To us, this is great because we enjoy the privacy and quiet atmosphere and like to take our time and enjoy our evening here. Others may feel they are not getting enough attention. We believe this was our 6th visit. This place is worth every penny.

    We make no exaggeration when I say that my husband and I agreed, that this was hands down the best meal of our lives. They think of every single detail and I can sincerely say that I smiled all the way home. The atmosphere was perfect. It was beautiful, comfortable, and the staff was so friendly. The food was beautiful also; exquisite in both sight and taste. It was perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, wonderfully balanced, and we'll thought out. I could not love this restaurant more, nor could I more wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone with a love for food and good wine. If I could give 6 stars, I would have.

  • Small portions, just okay.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 10/13/2014
    Bar service was slow, even though there weren't that many customers for the Happy Hour. Appetizers were very small portions - the cheese plate was ridiculously small. Do not order the mussels - tasteless with faint fishiness. The sweetbreads were good. Our table ordered the goat burgers and reviews were mixed. One person said the texture reminded them of cat food, the others loved them. I had the chicken roulade which was outstanding! Dessert (Banana cream pie and sesame creme brulee) was also amazing. Our server for the evening was attentive and sweet. Not a repeat place for me.

    Went here for brunch for a party of 7 people. We had made reservations and the restaurant wasn't crowded, however upon our entrance we waited 15 mins for them to set out table and then we were seated. Our waiter came about 15 mins after we sate and gave us our menu and told us how great he monkeybrains are, which was their version of sweatbuns. He took our drink orders while we looked over the menu. He didn't place our orders until maybe another 15mins. While we waited for our orders people at the bar who came in after us were receiving their food. After more than an hour after we sat, we were given our food, minus the sweatbuns we had ordered. The service was poor and I can't believe this place is so highly rated.

    The location is great and the atmosphere is cool. The service was excellent. The food was good but not amazing. The cheese plate had 3 very small bite size cubes on it- not worth the $. The muscles were decent. The hanger steak dinner was tasty. Everything was good - nobody raved about their dish but nobody complained either.

    Went here for brunch with my girlfriend on a Saturday. The wait time was unbelievable for food. The food took so long to come out I really didn't care what it tasted like once it arrived. And, it wasn't anything near worth the wait. If you're going to go, I recommend not going during a peak time. I don't think the kitchen can handle too many people.

    None of the appetizers contain any protien. Even the craw fish appetizer was essentially a ball of dough. Entrees were limited. I got the catfish and it consisted if three catfish fish sticks and 4 potato wedges. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Do not go hungry or you will leave the same way. Also, one toilet for the men's room.

    I brought my girlfriend here for our anniversary. She recently moved from Chicago and was used to going to nice restaurants there with her friends in the service industry. Our experience here was good, we liked everything we had. We are also vegetarians and we're able to find several good options for us. The portions were good for us, we each had two drinks, an appetizer, and an entree. That left us satisfied but not overly full, as one would expect from this type of dinner. I have had better value overall, but there really aren't any problems. The atmosphere here really is fantastic. It was a great place for an anniversary dinner. I would recommend it.

    The decor and atmosphere of this place was awesome! Very unique and quite the conversation piece. Our waiter was a nice gentleman, but we very rarely saw him. It took him forever to do anything, and when he did, part of the time it was wrong. Majority of my party loved their cocktails! Our appetizer was really good, but the main meal not so much. I had one bite and didn't eat anymore...We are going to give this quaint little place another try (only because we have a gift card that we forgot that night), but probably sit at the bar and see if we have a better experience. Needless to say, I walked away feeling like we could have spent our $100 else where and had a better experience.

    Love the history behind the name which explained the decor. Interesting and delightful menu with wonderful flavors. However, 2 of 4 meals was not served warm enough and became cold almost immediately. We couldn't find our waiter so 1 meal was eaten cold. We finally flagged a server down to have the other plate warmed but by that time everyone else in our party was almost finished eating.

    We went here for my fiance's birthday. I asked for the dairy free menu from the hostess as my lady is lactose intolerant. The food was delicious so we had to ask how they made it without cream. The waiter immediately realized the mistake and apologized but it was too late. They comped our gelato, which probably would have been comped for the birthday celebration anyway. In the end she spent the remainder of our evening at home in the lavatory of no fun -not the best way to end the night for either of us. My advice: if you order from the dairy free menu make sure you tell the waiter that you have the menu.

    My girlfriend decided to take us to Beatrice & Woodsley for restaurant week. I chose to order off the menu vs using the restaurant week fixed price option as it only offered duck, monkfish and a veggie meal option. A nice way to describe the menu is eclectic but it is really just limited and not anything special. The crawfish beneignettes were mostly fried dough with very little crawfish. My chicken paperdelle was ok. I almost confused the pappardelle and the asparagus for a garnish. Portions are small and the meal overall was not very memorable beyond it being expensive. The interior of the restaurant is also eclectic but it is a nice and unique setting for a quiet date.

    I was attracted to Beatrice & Woodsley by their ambiance, trees around the tables & chainsaws holding up the bar. Sadly the most impressive part of the evening was my trip to the bathroom with an amusing set of pulleys & a rainchain to wash my hands. For a restaurant that has a weekly rotating menu & was expecting a little more excitement for restaurant week.
