    We tried the restaurant during Dine-Out Lauderdale. The food was exceptional from the Caesar salad right through to dessert. We ate outside on the patio with a view of the ocean - wonderful! The only negative we experienced was the service. My appetizer came out but we had to wait quite a while for my wife's to arrive and when it did her entire entree was served at the same time. I also had to ask for my side dish to be served. Other than that the food was well prepared, perfectly seasoned and tasted fabulous. I would highly recommend it.

    Went for Brunch but was very disappointed. I understand that they are looking for turnover on tables and that the specialty plates come out of the kitchen, but more thought and prep would have served them better. The shrimp and grits were served up with boiled shrimp and the meatballs were severely overcooked. The details that matter were not handled well by this establishment.

    one of the best view of ft Lauderdale. Went to try the dine out menu, good food, different portion then regular menu; ordered a bottle a wine and server attempted to pour the wine in water glasses because "they were out of wine glasses". Gratuity was included for a party of two (I'm a server and I always tip above 20%....KARMA) and I left wondering if the other tables that ordered the dine out menu also had the gratuity included (no other dine out participant restaurant adds gratuity). Definitely the best part of the restaurant is the food, nothing crazy but definitely different and with great flavor. Other than that and the view, the restaurant décor, ambience and SERVICE is nothing out of the ordinary.

    Went with a group of 7 people to try the Dine Out menu. Sat outside as the weather was nice, but the road noise made conversation difficult at times. Food was very good and the menu offered a wide variety of selections. When we asked the waiter to provide separate checks by couples, he said he would ask his Manager. He came back to the table and informed us that he was not allowed to do it because we were dining on the Dine Out menu! Given that there were only 6 other tables in the entire restaurant while we were there, it would not have been a burden to split the check. Poor decision on the Manager's part as we will not be back!

    A group went for brunch thinking we could order from the menu. You cannot, must have buffet and order sides and small plates which took a ridiculously long time to receive. Only one table at buffet so even if you just wanted fruit or bread, you had to wait in the same line as those ordering omelets. Would not go for brunch again but liked the beachside bar.

    We are locals and are always seeking new places to go. Went with my family and were seated immediately. The server explained about the freshness of the food, which was great to know. We ordered the short rib quesadilla and the wings, which were both excellent. We then ordered a fillet mignon and the swordfish special. Again, both superb. The other 2 in the party ordered the bison sliders and lamb chops...all delish!!! We will most certainly return.

    This place is great if you want brunch or dinner with some friends outside but with a cool ocean breeze and ceiling fans to also keep you cool. Every time we have been our waiter has been cheerful and smiley and always attentive. Bottomless mimosa, bloody Marys or belinis and you can mix that up if you like. Very well priced. Most of all I like the set up. They have a small range on buffet with an egg station which the guy makes amazing concoctions, then they have a small plates menu you order from the waiter. Lots to choose, single person portion and TASTY

    I was here for brunch a while back and it was great. Just went for dinner the other night and the food was really good as well. We sat outside and the view is awesome. The service we had was amazing. Our waiter was so attentive and gave us great recommendations. We then ordered a cheese pallets to go with our waiter's perfect wine suggestion, and the chef or person who prepared the platter came out and explained all the cheeses to us as well as checking back in on us later to see how it was. All in all, a great second experience for me. I will be back for both brunch and dinner again in the very near future.

    I really enjoyed Beauty and the Feaster, which came highly recommended by a fellow foodie friend. I was extremely pleased with the overall restaurant, which is part of the Atlantic Hotel. Excellent location just across from the beach. Warm, inviting, trendy hotel/restaurant décor. Friendly staff. Excellent food - very fresh and flavorful. I look forward to visiting again in the near future!

    For Foodies that love good hand crafted cocktails, this is not the place. The bartender actually told me she was not creative when I asked her for any ideas about making me a Bourbon cocktail outside of the traditional old fashion that they renamed "the rock" because of the splash of peach and with Jim Beam no less. Given that Bourbon cocktails are making a come back I did not think this was an usual request. If you are going to be a restaurant with a cool bar program then you need better mixologists... Food waiter was great though.

    Don't let the name throw you. We had a great meal, excellent service from Jimmy. In a great restaurant. Already planning to return. We split a Harvest Salad, lamb chops(really yummy) and Sea scallops. Everything was delishous. We are going to get the Key West Shrimp on our next visit. Be Aware! They add the tip onto your bill and if I wouldn't have looked closer I would have tipped twice. Unusual for only a couple dining.

    Beauty and the Feast is very upbeat and fun. The menu, which is very diverse, includes small plates for sharing, as well as large size entrees.

His knowledge of everything on the menu is unsurpassed, and his rercommendations always please. He goes out of his way to make sure that your dining experience is everything that you would expect and more! Beauty and the Feast is a real winner and we definitely will return!

    We went to Beauty and the Feast for Brunch. Overall it was great... my only complaint is that there is an option for a $30 all you can eat buffet, but there is also an ala-carte menu that they don't tell you about. The Buffet is a great deal, especially for my friends that ordered every small dish, but please know, for someone that only want an omelet or a serving of waffles, it is possible.

    This is was out 2nd visit to restaurant. The first time the food and the service were excellent. Waiter recommended we try Thursday roast pig night and it sounded wonderful. We were definitely mislead. We were told the roast pig would be rolled out to the table and they would serve rice and beans. What we were actually served was a mediocre barbecue pulled pork. The side selections were not rice and beans but instead Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. Sprouts were tasty but potatoes were bland. Our waiter was not very knowledgeable and not very attentive. Had to ask for the check 3 times!

    I wanted to try something new with a couple friends that were from out of town. We went on a Monday night, which was fairly slow, but that just meant we got some great attention. The server was fantastic. We had a member of our party that had lots of allergies and dislikes and so can be a 'difficult' eater. Christopher took care of us superbly, making sure to be in communication with the chef to make sure that we got fantastic food that met with our dietary restrictions. The food was excellent. The desserts were to die for. Our group decided to partake in the tapas/mezze plates. So we ordered several smaller plates for the table and everyone loved it. We tried the shrimp, lamb, scallops, stacked mozzarella/eggplant, and beet salad.
