A word from Beaumarchais
Beaumarchais is a modern French brasserie in New York's trendy Meatpacking District. The Chef serves up re-imagined French classics such as Whipped Goat Cheese with Oven Dried Tomato on a Crostini and Steak Aux Poivres while suave bartenders create perfectly balanced bespoke cocktails. Beaumarchais is as famous for it's fine French cuisine and extensive wine list as it is for it's energetic, DJ-fuel atmosphere. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent cuisine and exceptional service contribute to this Class A restaurant!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Our service was very nice. The only negative was that it was very loud. So loud that we went elsewhere for an after dinner drink rather than stay there for dessert or a drink."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "The atmosphere is fun. A group of us went for a birthday and they sat us at a tiny table in the corner meant for 2 people. The service was terrible. Our waiter brought the wrong drinks and wrong food out twice. "

  • "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."

  • "I loved Beaumarchais!!! I felt like I was in Paris, France at Chez George. The food was incredible and having dinner to great music giving it a club feel was awesome on a Friday night! Just like the great restaurants of Paris! I can not wait to go back! "

  • "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"

  • "Steak tartare was superb for entree. The mains we had were ok but the dessert was very disappointing. The wine list is too expensive for the quality of the food. Service was very good."

  • "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. "

    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "his time they gave us a mini table, took to long to have the food ready, and the eggs were overcooked"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "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. "

  • "Attracts a 20's-30s crowd looking for action. Food ok, service rushed, music ridiculously loud (which made it ok that they rushed us out)"

  • "Wednesdays is a burlesque themed night...and they put in a great show! The gnocchi at this restaurant was pretty amazing. We arrived around 9 PM for dinner, but later he got the more lively and energetic. Overall a great place!"

  • "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!! :)"

  • "I loved Beau Marchais. The food was delicious. I went with a living social deal, but I was given the utmost service, and generous portions. The ambiance is great, the later you stay Beau Marchais turns into a party scene. Great music. I loved it will definitely return and recommend Beau Marchais to friends."

  • "Words can not describe what an amazing time I had. I will be reliving this wonderful event for the rest of my life. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to celebrate my birthday. There was a candy theme in the restaurant, which meant drinks were candy themes (all with lollipop garnishes) and every table had candy on them. The dj in the restaurant was amazing, the food was outstanding (we went for brunch), just the whole environment was wonderful. Everyone was having fun and dancing on tables, and drinking and just have an amazing time. It's impossible to just sit in your chair and not enjoy the amazing ambience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! Will definitely be coming back soon. It was truly a perfect birthday!"

  • "This place was incredible. As we arrived at around 8pm, we found the mood to be mellow and very classy. Over the course of our meal and conversation we realized that the restaurant's scene was slowly, but surely, morphing into a lively lounge atmosphere. The experience was unforgettable and I would highly recommend this place to anyone willing to spend a few dollars."

  • "French country meets 80's disco. Hipster maitre d in no rush to show us to our table (we were all there). Ear-piercing disco music made conversation hard. Food was fresh and service attentive. Overpriced relative to quality. You pay for the sound system."

    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Food and service are not the point here. A deafening bass line rattles the seat, and the service is perfunctory. You feel as they are set up for a party, waiting for the guests to arrive.... The food was ok, sort of standard bistro selections, though not a whole lot of them. We felt out of place--'are we the only New Yorkers to have ventured in here?' A DJ stood at his Mac, mixing tunes, I suppose so we could dance whe awaiting our steak frites."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "The food was good, service was ok but we were rushed out rather rudely by the bouncer who pretty much was letting us know that he had better things to be doing. I've been here once before and left around 10pm which is fairly early. This time around, I guess due to few customers, they chose to close down earlier than usual. Disappointed as well in the music selection by the DJ. Wasn't ecclectic enough."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "The food was outstanding. The lasagna sheets with boar were perfect. Everything was great. The DJ-led music was louder than my wife and I would have liked, though; we enjoyed the music, but we would have had a better time had the music been turned down a notch or three so we could talk easily instead of having to raise our voices and lean in to hear each other."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "Food was GREAT, delicious and innovative but the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other and could barely order....maybe it was because it was New Years Day, but for that alone it would be hard to go back and what a shame as it was one of the best brunch meals I have had in a long time.....the truffle fries, baked eggs and lamb burger were ALL a big hit!"
