    Friends recommended we go to Beaumarchais the next time we were in NYC. My daughter and I were in NYC last Sunday and decided to go to Beaumarchais and let me tell you we were really glad we did. Everything from the food to the service and ambience was just outstanding. I will definitely keep going back. Just fabulous!

    I went here for dinner with a friend on Thursday night around 9 pm, thinking it would be a fun atmosphere. We were two of four people in the restaurant. Totally totally empty, so the experience was a little weird. We sat outside, which was nice and the food was great. But maybe this is more of a brunch scene. We were there until 11 pm or so and still crickets.

    There was hair in the food. The tuna tartare was in a bowl of water and it wasn't very fresh. The waitress was rude and impatient. The manager tried to smooth it over with mimosas. He told us they usually never have any complaints and hope we try them again. I was disappointed because I was expecting a great fun brunch experience. But it was pretty calm on a Saturday afternoon...there was EDM, bu everyone was seated and talking. Maybe Sunday is when it turns into a party? I like the decor though.

    My fiance and I had a great time. We had brunch and a couple too many wine glasses. I had the Cesar salad for brunch -I don't recommend it. It is a simple as they warn you it it. He had the tuna sushi style and avocado. It was tasty. I would recommended for a group of friend but watch what you order for drinking coz' they def get you at $15 per glass wine.

    This is a great venue especially if you go with a crowd. It's fun and entertaining! Food was really good, though our service was poor. We were never checked on to see if we were ok or needed anything and after dinner we wasn't even asked for dessert. So we paid and left a little disappointed. I would definitely recommend Beaumarchais - just hope you don't get our server.

    Went for Sunday brunch last day of the world cup. They were showing the match on big screens. There is a DJ @ brunch & the music is loud. Between screaming soccer fans & the music there was definatley no chance of having a conversation. The food was very good & the service was fine. If you want to party & have a good meal come here. If you're looking for conversation with friends this isn't the place for you.

    I went here on a Saturday night with 2 friends. The food was great and it was the perfect spot to eat before going out, as it definitely has a party atmosphere. There's a DJ and the music is loud. Good for groups, there were lots of big parties sitting around us. Would definitely recommend before a night out, but probably not a place for families or if you're looking for a quiet romantic dinner. Overall, really enjoyed it.

    The food here is actually pretty good, but overpriced. It would have been fine, except the service was awful. If you're looking for a rowdy brunch, I'd recommend Bagatelle over Beaumarchais.

    If you had a fight with your partner and need to take him/her to a nice dinner where you can no longer talk about the problem, this is the right place. The DJ plays music at discotheque decibels, lights blink, patrons and waiters climb on chairs and dance to the music, and our waiter was bringing shots of vodka to a table and taking one himself each time he served them. I guess is you arrive early enough, you can enjoy the food, which is quite good, without fearing that a high heeled beauty will fall on your table from the chair next to you. Some of the tables are 1"from that of your neighbor and there is no privacy at all. I have to say that the crowd was beautiful, the young women looked stunning and the guys with them were a good match.

    This Bistro is not your quiet, French getaway, it is a CELEBRATION! The art is always really high-end contemporary (I'm an artist); the music (we had a DJ on Saturday night) energetic with songs to appeal to several generations, and the food and the service are both outstanding. We had the cutest waiter (beautiful, South American young woman wearing a tux-like waiter suit) and all of our meals were delicious. It was two of our friends' birthdays and the giant sundae in a cone, complete with large burning flare (no wimpy sparkler) can not be beat when you have something to celebrate.

    had my sister's college graduation dinner here. food was very good, dj was great and played fun music, and the staff is friendly. two problems we experienced: my husband asked for his steak to be medium rare and it came out well done. when he sent it back it came back even more cooked the second time. I believe the waiter misunderstood and thought he wanted it "very well done". the third time they finally got it right and my husband said the steak was excellent. they were very apologetic and comped our dessert. the second issue was we were charged for two steaks. sometimes I wonder if this is an honest mistake or if they hope you are too "drunk" to notice. I think with all the mistakes we shouldn't have been charged for the steak.

    I was there for brunch on a Sunday. It is a fun place and you are basically pay high prices for the fun part I guess, because the food is average but expensive for what it is. Steak and eggs for $38??? That is ridiculous. The cocktails were good but I wouldn't go there to eat again. My friend had the Croque Madame, and the bread was soooo hard that she could bearly cut it with the steak knife. She left half of it because she was struggling to eat it. We told this to the waiter and it was as if our comment was a complaint.

    This was a fun Brunch surprise. Small place filled with lots of people eating fantastic food. Menu is one of the best. Tuna Tartare app with guacamole is wonderful. Gnocchi was creamy and delicious. Eggs Benedict perfect with all the trimmings. Dessert fabulous. Must have Ice Cream Cone, enough for 6 people, came out in our waitress' hands with a sparkler on top. DJ kept us rocking. Fun had by all

    I came here for a birthday brunch with a few friends and had a blast. The music is loud so it's not a place for quiet conversation. Instead, it's a fabulous spot for dressing up, having some delicious food and bouncing in your chairs to the loud house/hip hop/top 40 music all afternoon. By about 4pm, the curtains were closed and folks stood up to dance in their chairs. All around fun, festive brunch spot. My only criticism isthat as my headcount increased to 8, I was told we'd have to do a pre fixe menu, which I don't like. Fortunately someone cancelled so we got to have the regular menu.

    We went here because we like French food but also the idea of live entertainment. I had read a lot of reviews about how it was too noisy. I didn't find that to be the problem at all. First of all, the lighting and decoration is very pretty. The hostess could not have been nicer and accomodated our seating request to sit side by side. This proved to give us a great view of the burlesque! The waiter steered us very well in our food choices, recommending meats over seafood. Food was delicious and we wound up staying for 5 hours dancing after midnight. If you are on a date and want to mix up the usual dining, this place is a great find.

    This restaurant came recommended. We were a group of 7, looking for a nice dining experience. We felt VERY rushed. The waiter was arrogant and stuffy. The food was boring. Once we finished eating he never returned to see if we wanted anymore drinks (60.00$ for the cheapest bottle of wine). He recommend a $50.00 "cake" to share for dessert. He brought out ice cream, whip cream, marshmallows and some other random garbage in it. I think he did it more as a joke amongst his coworkers but we didn't find it that funny. Terrible experience, first time ever writing a review but it was so bad I wanted to warn the next group.

    It was our second time there and I don't think i would ever go back. Our reservation was at 9.45pm and we were'nt seated til 10.50! Whats the point of having resos!! Also felt they kept lying as to why our table wasnt ready! For that much of a wait the food really isn't worth it. Also its so packed that you can't even enjoy a drink as you wait for your table!! Too many other great places to go in NY to waste time waiting at Beauty&Essex!!!

    I've been going out in Meatpacking for years and I had always overlooked Beaumarchais; not sure why. I decided to go there with one of my girlfriends last Thurs night and O M G... what an experience!! We arrived at 8:15ish and the place was quiet, but nice. By 9pm, the music got louder and older diners exited and younger entered and the place was popping by 10pm with bottle service theatrics galore with outrageous Ghostbusters, Star Wars and Superman shows, belly dancers, etc. So much fun!!! The DJ was fab. Everyone was dancing on tables and chairs and having a crazy good time. And the food was AMAZING! I'll never be able to enjoy gnocchi again anywhere else. The scallops were incredible as was the chocolate lava cake. YOU MUST GO!! :)
